When we lose someone we love, the emptiness pervades everything. If we did but know it, those who have passed on are still loving us, waiting and eager to help us cope with the trials of everyday living. But we have to learn to be still and quieten our minds to provide space for them to come in.
This book details the author's journey to that realization. It offers encouragement and hope to the bereaved, gives explicit instructions on how to achieve contact with one who has gone before, and points out pitfalls to avoid.
It deals with loss under many circumstances, offers suggestions for a better life, tells what it is like 'Over There,' and emphasizes the importance of love.
This book comprises extracts from the volumes in which I recorded our conversations, extracts dealing with the loss of a loved one. It is the story of how I came to America, my experiences as a new immirant, episodes from our life together, my husband's final illness and how it affected me.
The book deals with many aspects of losing someone you love, how you can help yourself by helping those who are already 'Over There,' things to avoid when and if you attempt contact, and finally, the joy and difference it made in my life when this contact was achieved.
Anecdotes abound throughout the book, both from my husband and from me. The story weaves back and forth, deals with the real problems that beset those left behind, and offers practical suggestions on how to cope.
