The Other Side during the Holidays

I had the most interesting dream last night. I dreamt I was on the other side visiting a friend of mine who died several years ago. It was so fun to see him. After a bit, people started coming up to me asking me to do readings for them. They wanted me to tell them how their living loved ones are doing. The people on the other side wanted readings on us—the living—just like us, the living, want to know how they are doing.

When I woke up this morning, I sat on the side of my bed thinking about the dream. That aspect of mediumship never occurred to me. The deceased wanting information on us. I always assumed they could see us and know how we’re doing, but the dream felt very different. The deceased have moved on to a new neighborhood and we’re still in the old neighborhood. They are seeing us from a different perspective and we are continually learning how to live without them in our lives.

The next thought that popped in was maybe psychics are just as busy on the other side as we are on this side. Maybe they seek out psychics to get a read on their next life. What issues do they have left to heal. What were the purposes of the challenges they had in their recent past life. It felt like a continual cycle of growing and healing.

I know most people on Earth have this idea that once we die, we see everything so clearly but that’s just not true. We can only see what we can handle. We live a different pace. We go through a grieving process ourselves. Many of our deceased loved ones are reliving holiday memories right now. And many of them come to family and friend gatherings this time of year.

I’m not sure why I felt like sharing all of this with you today. I think the most important message here is that our loved ones miss us as much as we miss them. They are continuing to grow and heal on the other side just as we are here. Their soul is very much alive and yes of course you will see them again.

I hope you have a blessed holiday whichever way you celebrate.

    I have often said to others that we don’t know all in the non-physical. I agree that we only see and sense what our overall energy will allow. That includes with choices we are offered when choosing our next life. Depending on the energy we take with us from a current life our choices can be quite narrow as is the knowledge we can obtain in the bardo.

    That was lovely, I find comfort in what you wrote. I pray to my ancestors all the time…daily actually, and feel like they continue to send me messages. Your dream feels like an answer to my latest question.. “Do you miss me as much as I miss you?” 😊

    I talk to my mom a lot. Slowing down my own energy is harder to do than I thought it would be. My dreams give me a great deal of comfort. Last night, 12/27/21, I was back in my home town church and thinking I was getting ready to go to church camp again, it was wonderful.
    I have just started reading the book Echo recommended on Facebook written by Gina Lake. Thank you Echo and Gina. Some of this I already knew but I am learning so much. I went ahead and bough the other 3 books by Gina. Looking forward to reading tmem.
