I was moved to tears to hear this. It just made all the work worth it instantly. THIS is exactly why I felt compelled to write the book Dance Through It:
“I have read your book at least 4 times since saturday.It is on my bedside table (note – she printed out the ebook) and I just can’t help but to be drawn to it…and every time I read it,I gather more.Thank you again.I am excited to have a forum to discuss all that was brought up in your book,as it resonates so deeply inside of me.I do not have very many people,if any to share these thoughts with and for a lot of my life I have felt a little ‘too out there’ for people…knowing that there is at least one person out there…it has given me fuel.”
“I am just so filled with gratitude in my heart for you. You have done so much for me, I don’t think you will ever know”
When I was a young woman my body was crushed when my airborne car landed on top of me, and it sent me out of this life and into the next. What happened under the car and in the hospital afterward was the richest gift I’ve ever been given.
Do you want to know what it felt like to cross over? After 16 years I finally put it into words. Announcing Dance Through It: a 32 page, vividly illustrated e-book about why there’s nothing to fear in this life. The story will stick with you.
A short excerpt, from when I caught a glimpse of the energies of people who had recently died:
Many had died tragic, unexpected deaths. All were full of joy. Of all the beautiful agony we could see in the loved ones remaining on earth, all of it appeared noble. All of it appeared purposeful. These recently dead were trying to comfort and communicate with the earthly human part of those left behind, nearly laughing with compassionate outreach. It was as if they were trying to wrap their arms around those left behind and say, “Can’t you feel me? I’m right here with you even more than in life because my half of the veil is lifted. No body or personality holds me back from you. I did my job, I died when I was supposed to. Your job is beginning. We are a team, we chose this together, it’s your turn to grow from this and transform it with your open heart. After this life we’ll plan another together as we have so many times. In the meantime let’s get this one right and make good use of your pain for the benefit of all of life. Everything is exactly as it should be and I wouldn’t change it if I could. The only shame of this whole mess is if you let it destroy you and waste the chance for growth. Are you sure you can’t feel me?” It was almost a sense of coaching and cheering and reassuring.
This sense was so powerful that for years after I returned to a more normal type of consciousness, anytime I heard of a tragedy too big to recover from (losing three children in one day for example) my instinctive first emotion was a genuine sense of gaping awe and respect for the people involved, admiration that they would sign on for such difficulties, and for the potential for growth and useful power in proportion to their pain.
Steve Jobs’ intriguing last words prompted me to share a few thoughts in A Glimpse into Death.
