At the time of doing this photoshoot in Thailand, I couldn’t have imagined that this post would be dedicated to the memory of my Dad…
I truly believe that death is only the beginning. I believe that we have a soul, whose earthly life is just another trial in its growth and further rebirth. Death is a celebration of the soul, which is hard only for those of us who stay behind. It is our ego that cries for what we can have no more… We should rejoice that the soul has fulfilled its purpose on Earth and is now happy. It does not like to see loved ones crying.
I am fully aware of this, yet my dad’s sudden passing was and still is a tremendous shock for me. There is a battle within me between my intuitive sense of the parallel world and a kind of earthly understanding of the bond between people. I feel devastated when I think that I no longer have a dad, who will hug me, comfort me, or tell me a joke… That he will not see my children grow up… Of course, I am sad about how much was yet to come… But how can I think that? He will still comfort me, he will still look after us all, including his grandchildren, only it will be different…
His soul is definitely not at the end of its journey yet; he is still preparing for his next task. And I believe that we will meet again, because soulmates are inseparable. I also believe that my dad is still with us.
But, despite it all, it still hurts so much… When I was grieving, my best friend showed me an interview with Marianne Williamson, the author of “Tears to Triumph” and lecturer, where she talks about getting over loss. I have added the video, which might be useful to you too (if you do not see it at the end of this post, there is a link https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F6ys8lhSsbA). To feel and live pain is, after all, only human nature.
I have gained so much from Michael Newton’s book Journey of Souls, which has allowed me to see a whole other world… If only we make sure to listen to ourselves, our intuition and the universe, we will clearly see that a parallel world exists – our loved ones are right next to us! It is at moments when we remember the deceased, that their soul touches us. Their soul is with us, but we also need to learn to let it go! Only by letting go and moving on with our own life, can we give the soul the happiness it deserves.
To everyone who has lost a loved one, I wish with all my heart for you to be strong, to grieve and then let go of the soul and, most importantly, to move on with your life. And, as Marianne Williamson said, to celebrate life! I know that my dad would want me to move on and be happy. I will always keep him in my heart the way I remember him.
He will always be my James Bond, my beloved Dad!
Thank you, Dad, for everything!
