We also wonder if we were somehow at fault for not doing or doing something that could have changed the course of someone’s life.
Sonja described the following situation. She was at home at night and she became aware of a presence that was around her. She did not feel creepy or uncomfortable at all. She was able to perceive clearly a human form and determine the ethnicity, gender and age. This is because she learned to trust her awareness over time. She no longer doubted what she saw or sensed. It was a young male person who she had never seen before. He was blonde and had a surfer/skateboarder type haircut that came in front of her. He was confused. She ‘knew he was recently deceased and confused. He did not know what to do, so she asked for assistance to guide him through the light. He went away, and then she did not dwell upon this although it was somewhat out of the ordinary. Two days later, she was at a gathering for the organization she worked for, and she was talking to a director who had reported that his nephew had just passed in a car accident. She saw a picture of the nephew who was 19 and it was the same person she had seen. Sonja is very intuitive and was able to assist the deceased person in crossing over. At the time, she had no knowledge of the connection but received a confirmation later. Often people who are very close may be too unnerved by the situation, or alternatively may not know what a helpful response would be for their loved one.
See the movie Resurrection (the original version from the 1970’s with Ellen Burstyn) about this topic. Although the special effects are not as snazzy as they are today it is helpful in understanding different aspects of the relationship we have to death and transition. This movie is based on a true story.
