Do you believe in the supernatural? Do you think that anyone has ever tried to contact you or send you signs from the other side?

In the national award-winning book, Conversations with Jerry and Other People I Thought Were Dead,there's a poignant passage from a young man by the name of Jared who transitioned when he was thirty years old. (The conversations are between the author and seven loved ones on the other side.)

When asked, "Is there anything you miss?" Jared responds,"I don't miss anything. I'm content. Everything I could possibly want is available here and now. I would like my family and friends on the physical plane to acknowledge my presence, although not because I miss it; I'd like it more for them than for me. I know I'm very much alive, but they don't. Because people can't experience me with their five senses, they think I don't exist anymore . . . so they mistakenly assume they have no place to put their love for me. Loneliness is people falsely believing that no one is there to receive their love. It's our natural instinct to express love, and when we think we can't, it creates sadness."

While you may not be able to physically touch your loved one, I recommend staying in touch with and celebrating the love you shared. . . and continue to share . . . which is forever present and always and forever connects you. The way we get through grieving is to cry all of our tears. It is a cleansing and a healing process. However, if you have regrets or guilt about the relationship, work to clear these, as they cause unnecessary suffering.

Our children want one and only one thing for us: they want us to live joyously, which is our true essence.

I hope this is helpful.

Thank you, Amaryllis.

Soooo many readers say they have found peace and a renewed sense of joy and optimism from the book. A reader whose 25-year-old son committed suicide two years ago told me that, while she still mourns the physical component of her relationship with her son, she also sees how much she's grown and learned as a result of his passing. Before reading the book and based on her religious beliefs, she thought her son was burning in hell. Can you imagine this mother's suffering? In my book, I speak with my friend Bill, who committed suicide when he was in his thirties. When she read these conversations, she shifted her thinking. And about a month ago, she told me she received a message from her son and knows now that he is alive and well. She had to first be willing to open herself to new ways of thinking, which takes great courage. She has now started a group for survivors of loved ones who've committed suicide and my book has become their text.

My mission is to eliminate unnecessary suffering and inspire conscious, joyous living. You can order a signed, limited edition embossed copy on my website: http://www.conversationswithjerry.com or a digitally printed unsigned copy on amazon.

You are Love, you are Joy, and You are Eternal. May you embrace each moment with heartfelt gratitude for the blessings that are yours! Love, Irene

ATTENTION IRENE KENDIG: Who is the author of that book? I don't understand why she wouldn't just TELL me instead of telling me to ask you! Not a very helpful OR nice person! If she didn't know why didn't she just say that? She must be into playin' head games, which isn't cool, especially under the circumstances that brought us to this site!
My Dearest Melinda,

I think there has been a misunderstanding. I did not ask anyone to tell you anything. Amaryllis simply responded to your question before I could. If you look back on the thread, you will see that I have been posting here for months in loving support.

Blessings of peace.

Irene

I just don't know how to go on.
The pain is so bad, and everybody I speak to who has lost a child even if it was 20 yrs ago they say the same thing the pain never goes away.
So how do you learn to go on?
How do you go on living?

Hi Sonya - I have almost exactly the same story. My son Tyler was 24 when I found him this past January. I found him in work unresponsive. His birthday was Sept 19th. The pain is unbearable. One of the only things that help is knowing people like yourself are going through the same thing.

You asked, "how do I go on living?" I've felt the same way since June 8, 2009. One day at a time, as they say. I have no plan, but feel I must go on for my husband and daughter. Also, I want to memorialize him in some way, as his friends have done. If I'm gone, I won't be able to set up college funds for his Godchildren in his name, and try to help people and animals as he would do, in his name. I don't want people to forget about him. I know they won't but to think of it makes me cry.
Hi Janet - I, too, have no plan. Sadly, I have no other children to live for. I couldn't hurt my husband, but I do pray to God everyday to either ease the pain or take me now. So far He hasn't been listening.
Sorry I haven't responding lately my email has been messed up and seems I haven't been getting notice when somebody replies.

How is everyone holding up?
Melinda, I thought I saw way back that she did write the Author, here is a link for the book on amazon,

http://www.amazon.com/Conversations-Jerry-Other-People-Thought/dp/0...

Irene Kendig Is the Author. Conversations with Jerry and other people
I have a couple books I have a started to read but pass couple weeks can't bring myself to read them. I guess because I am in denial about my son's death
Hello From Heaven by Bill and Judy Guggenheim they even have a site

http://after-death.com/
Where people share their thoughts on signs from the other side.
Dear Melinda, I am just reading all the replies, the e-mails sent to me and I see there was an unfortunate confusion with threads. I had been replying to Sonya exchanging thoughts with her and one of the replies was directed to you, about the book, dear Melinda and then an answer was sent, I even don't know how this knot happened. Yes, we all carry an enormous amount of pain in our broken hearts to make our load even bigger- no, dear Melinda, we do not need that. May God bless us all. I send you my love. amaryllis

You can go on by thinking of the very positive aspect of life you had with them. If you are spiritual and even if you are not - try to seek comfort from the scriptures. Just be thankful for the happy memories you have of that person. Also, be assured that the person is not suffering but resting - Ecclesiastes 9:5. The Dead are conscious of nothing - which rule out the possibility of any kind of harm being brought to them.
Take comfort in the scriptures - Romans 15:4. The scriptures give us hope for those that we loved and have passed - Revelation 21:3,4. God will set up a kingdom that will never be brought to ruin. --Daniel 2:44 and with this - we know that God can not lie (Titus 1:2) so therefore, whatever, he promise will come to be and we will see this magnification in his due time. (2 Peter 3:9)

When the pain appears too big for you to handle - turn to someone who you know to be a loving person and seek comfort from the wisdom which they may speak from the Bible. The Bible is our hope, our comforter and guidance. If we look to God for the many dispairs in life - we will be able to endure the many trials and trust in the words of what God has placed before us. (Proverbs 3:5,6).

I lost my Dad and is so thankful to have the scriptures to resort to for the comfort that I need in such time. The scriptures offer us real hope in the near future. So, during our most depressing times - if we resort to the scriptures - we can be assured that something better is waiting for us in the future. With this, it will enable us to move on.
