A Sign from My Dog, Romie – Healing A Grieving Heart

My Dog, RomieThe time came for my dog, Romie to tell me it was time for her to go back home to heaven. It was December 23, 2014.

This was a very difficult decision but I knew it was best for my baby girl, my dog, Romie. She helped me while I was grieving my mom and my son the past 18 months. I was grieving my dog, Romie for a few months now. Her dementia suddenly took over her and prevented her from wanting to eat the last few days. She was 14 years old (young to me). The vet came to our house.

My sweet baby girl, my dog Romie looked up at me for comfort when she realized someone else was there in her space on the bed. I held her with my arms around her tightly as she was comforted and melted in my arms.

That was the last time I held her alive as her spirit soared.

I noticed a pain on the left side of my back and hip in October. It lasted for 3-months. What was strange, I noticed pretty quick the pain disappeared immediately after my dog, Romie passed. A few weeks later I had a thought …

“The pain went away because, it was me trying to tell you about my pain.”

As I sensed this, I was in the middle of the first day of an online animal communication class.” I was so excited!!

My dog, Romie never complained so I was unaware she was in pain. She had a difficult time getting up once she was lying down for a while. However, once she was up, we went for walks daily and she walked by my side everywhere.

Before I went to sleep that night, I asked my dog, Romie as I wrote in my journal “Was that you I heard today? Were you trying to tell me about your pain when my side, hip, and rib hurt?” The next morning, I quickly picked up the journal and began writing as the words came through me … “Yes, it was me.” My dog, Romie said “I am free now and I feel blissful. I talk to you all the time. I walk by your side like your shadow.”

My Dog RomieI have had dogs all my life and hearing a message from my dog, Romie was my first experience receiving communication from any animal. At least a message I understood was from my dog when we weren’t together.

I am writing this message because you, too can have hear from your pets. You only need to have the awareness and positive thoughts so when your pet speaks to you, you will recognize it.  They do speak to you all the time here or deceased in Spirit through telepathy. Spirit communicates through the Clairs. Clairsentience is feeling which is how my dog, Romie tried to let me know how she was feeling through my own body.

It is my hope to inspire you to look for a sign from your pets and loved ones. In my next blog, I will write about another experience of how my dog, Romie communicated to me through another Clair called Clairvoyance. Clairvoyance is seeing.

If you are interested in hearing from a loved one or pet, I also have “Talking to Heaven” cards which is another way our loved ones and pets can communicate to us. These cards have beautiful pictures and give beautiful messages from our loved ones in heaven, like my dog, Romie.

Is There a Soul’s Plan for Reincarnation?

Soul's PlanAre you aware there is a soul’s plan for reincarnation? Are you ready to dive in deep? Into the depths of your soul? If you are recently grieving a loved one like I am, the information I have for you today can help you with the grieving process. It helped me.

I felt my son, Max leading and guiding me through the process of discovery about the soul’s plan.  I knew I was being led because I now recognize my son’s energy and I was thinking about wanting to understand more about the spirit world all day. And there it was that evening when it all came about.

Knowledge of the soul’s plan changed my whole perspective of life and death.

One cool thing I learned is once our soul group decides to reincarnate, a new spirit is always created from the soul with a spark of light from God or the Divine. Then a personality is created. In other words, I, as Kim will always be known as Kim to my soul family. The new incarnation is a “new spirit” with a new name, not yet born as a human.

Every reincarnation has a soul’s plan and is always created with a new spirit of Divine light.

You and I will always be the same spirit once we cross over to the spirit world. We live there and grow there, watch and learn from our loved ones on earth from there and are always there to greet our loved ones when they crossover.

I learned all the intricate details of how our soul’s plan is created collectively, by our soul group with the council of elders, masters and spirit guides. The soul’s plan benefits our family, friends and people we meet along the way throughout our lifetime in preparation of our soul’s group plan for reincarnation.  Souls plan to come back to earth to learn about sadness, fear, patience, and/or anger, for example. So when they go back home to the spirit world they will have an understanding in a way they couldn’t experience in the spirit world.

In order to do this, you as a human, will experience these things to learn what the spirit already knows, compassion, love, and forgiveness, as an example. Those of us connected to spirit understand this, but many humans on earth are not connected to their true nature as spiritual beings, living a human experience.  Our soul not only plans the birth for our soul group, it plans the life and death, or (exit points) back home to the spirit world

Can this knowledge of the soul’s plan make it easier for you to forgive, have compassion, and replace anger with love?

Soul's PlanThis is the beauty of seeing the soul perspective for the events in your life.

Our spirit is our true nature. We are a light being. A spark of God created from our soul.

All our spirit knows is love, joy, compassion, and peace. When your soul’s plan is created to reincarnate, each spirit decides together what will benefit each one in the group at the highest level. The soul sees growth with every experience we have on earth, the bad and the good.

I learned there is a Soul’s Plan and all the big events in my life were and are a part of it. There is powerful healing knowing there is a soul’s plan and through understanding why things happen the way they do in our lives. If you are grieving the loss of a loved one or curious to know more, I want to encourage you to listen to Bob Olson’s amazing interview with Robert Schwartz, author of  “Your Soul’s Plan” and “Your Soul’s Gift.”

You can hear for yourself answers to questions about your soul’s plan on AfterlifeTV.com.  There is so much more to learn. It’s free and it could be an answer to one of your prayers.

Soul Food! Wisdom for the Soul!

SoulAfter losing two of the most significant people in my life last year, my mom and my son, I’ve been on a quest to learn and grow spiritually, as many of you know. I have a thirst for “Wisdom for my Soul.” One of the ways I learn is by listening to Super Soul Sunday. Every week I look forward to watching and sharing posts on Twitter and Facebook about Oprah and her very special guests. I learn so much every moment from this show. Below are the notes from my top six favorites from last week’s show on May 18, 2014.  The quotes below are lightheartedly written with a depth of wisdom for the soul in each one. Enjoy!

1.When we die, our soul leaves the rental car behind to get on a plane. Except the gas tank’s empty & our spirit will fly without da plane. #SuperSoulSunday.

2. Metrics to live by. Remember death is for us to remember our life with the wisdom of lessons our soul has learned & why we are here – to love #SuperSoulSunday.

3. Going to Mars is interesting, but exploring your inner space is the ultimate exploration for our soul to learn. #SuperSoulSunday.

4. The greatest lesson of all is to allow our soul to be fully present. #SuperSoulSunday.

5. Don’t leave life until everything is rigged in your favor for the soul. #Rumi #SuperSoulSunday.

6. The soul is who I am and who you are and only a breath away. #supersoulsunday

If you haven’t watched Super Soul Sunday and you’ve recently lost a loved one or you’re on a spiritual journey, I recommend tuning in with your coffee or tea, and notebook and pen in hand.

Lights Flickering? Is this a Sign From Loved Ones?

loved onesGrieving is difficult. I know, this is one of my loved one’s first year of passing last weekend and my son’s first year is yet to come in June. Through the grief, I am comforted by beautiful, amazing signs from my loved ones. If you haven’t read the past blogs which began this series, I’d like to encourage you to do so. I wrote of many amazing signs from two of my loved ones within my first year of grieving. Today is a continuation of this series titled “Lights Flickering? Is this a Sign From Loved Ones?” This blog post is a tribute to one of my loved ones, my very funny son, Max

One of my loved ones, Max loves to play with electricity from Heaven.

In fact, my first blog in this series is about Max manipulating my computer and older voice messages on my phone. If you haven’t read the first blog of this series and still want to believe you can hear from loved ones in heaven, I highly recommend reading it.

I remember when the ceiling light bulbs in my office went out. I wasn’t able to fix it myself, so I waited a couple days until my handyman came over to fix it for me. The following day, my kitchen ceiling light bulbs went out. Now, I just had these light bulbs replaced only a few weeks before they went out a second time in both rooms. I learned that I could establish my own communication system with my loved ones in heaven and they will understand and nothing would make them happier then to connect with me and knowing they are very much alive.”

Loved ones, now spirits in heaven, call us the walking dead here on Earth many times.

Why? Because our loved ones go back home to the spirit world where they came from. A timeless world of pure beauty, light, more vibrant in color, song, dance, pure joy, pure love, pure peace and more than our minds can even comprehend here on Earth. When a spirit has loved ones on earth who believe they are dead, they cannot get through to them. Remember they are living in a very light dimension. Our third dimensional world is very dense. For a spirit, it’s like being in 8 feet of water, trying to communicate here. It takes great effort for our loved ones to come back to our third dimension but they love us so much, they always will try to find a way.

So, I came up with a plan for Max and I to communicate. I asked my son, Max to flicker a light two-times to say “Hello” or “yes” to a question I asked him and 4-times to say “hello” and answer “no.” Time is only for our Human experience here on Earth. So didn’t know how long it would take for Max to begin to communicate with me. One day, last fall, I went sleepily in my kitchen, turned on the light and walked over to the counter by kitchen sink to make my morning coffee.

Suddenly my kitchen light flickered 4-times.

loved onesI smiled a big smile and said “Good morning Max. You are so funny, I love you.” The next morning I went into my kitchen, turned on the light, walked over to the kitchen sink and my kitchen light flickered 2-times. This time I laughed joyfully and said “Good morning, Max.” I was so happy to feel and sense his presence around me this way. I still didn’t realize Max made the light bulbs go out in my office and kitchen a few weeks earlier. Until I was speaking to a colleague whose son had passed over 5 years ago. She told me many stories of her son making the light bulbs go out just to get her attention. Max was trying to get my attention all along. That’s my son, Max!

Another Sign from One of my Loved Ones in Heaven

Loved onesGrieving is difficult. Through the grief, I am comforted by beautiful, amazing signs from my loved ones. If you haven’t read the past blogs which began this series, I’d like to encourage you to do so. I wrote of many amazing signs from two of my loved ones within my first year of grieving. Today is a continuation of this series titled “Another Sign from One of my Loved Ones in Heaven”.

This blog post is a tribute to one of my loved ones, my wise and beautiful mom, Helen

My mom was my best friend. She went home to Heaven last year April 2013. I only recently started feeling her presence since my son’s passing in June 2013. So these stories are not only true, they are very close to my heart.

I got a phone call from a special friend we’ll call “Charles.”  I really don’t see or talk to him often.  He called to tell me about an experience he encountered at his home. This is what he told me. “Charles said “I began to write you an email that said…

“Tell Kim this is not Charles writing this email.” Charles thought “Could this be from one of Kim’s loved ones?”

Then Charles thought “who is this? suddenly Charles said “I felt a presence nudge me to move off the chair. Charles thought, “Wow, whoever this spirit was, really wanted to get my attention and write this email I started writing to Kim.” Instead, Charles stopped writing and picked up the phone to call me. He heard my voicemail.

This time Charles heard a voice in his inner ear say “I want to talk to my daughter, Kim. I want to leave her a voice message.  Kim this is mom. ”Charles (and my mom) left a voice message to return his call. I received the message(s) the next day and returned Charles’ call. He told me this incredible story of how my mom was trying to reach me through him. He didn’t know my mom. however she certainly knew he was a way to get through to me.

I believe there are no accidents and my mom showed up to comfort me as soon as she was able. I had been calling out to my mom all week. I missed her so much. I hadn’t heard from her since last summer after my son passed.

I was so excited to sense and feel her energy around me again. My mom just wanted me to know she is more alive then ever after having much needed rest.

Grieving & Signs from Loved Ones in Heaven – Sign #6

grievingGrieving is difficult. However, I have so many beautiful stories to share with you of signs from my loved ones in my first year of grieving. If you haven’t read the past three week’s blog posts which began this series, I’d like to encourage you to do so. I wrote of 5 amazing signs from two of my loved ones all within my first year of grieving. Today is a continuation titled “Grieving & Signs from Loved Ones in Heaven – Sign #6”.

Today’s blog is a tribute to my beautiful mom, Helen – My first year of grieving.

My mom was my best friend. She went back home to Heaven last year April 2013. I haven’t felt her presence, seen, or heard any signs from her since my son passed in June 2013, 9 months ago. So the story below is very special to me.

Suddenly, I knew my mom’s presence was here with me.  And, I began grieving as the wave came through me.

It happened a couple weeks ago when I was in a private T’ai Chi Chih lesson in my home with my teacher, Marie. She said “You know the practice, now I want to take you deeper“. As we began, I closed my eyes and suddenly, I saw my mom. I haven’t seen her, felt her presence, or heard anything from her for 9 months. Except for my own thoughts of wondering how she was doing, missing her terribly and talking to her when grieving was really difficult for me.

My immediate response was when I began crying. I didn’t know why, except, I knew I was grieving again and I knew I just saw my mom in my mind. It was like a tidal wave of grief hit me. So my T’ai Chi Chih Teacher walked me through observing my mom’s presence and letting the grieving pass through me. Then we continued with the lesson of T’ai Chi Chih.

GrievingFor those who have recently lost a loved one, one thing I learned about grieving is this: Grief comes in waves at anytime, anywhere. There are so many triggers to cause grieving in the first year. Sometimes grieving comes in small waves and sometimes grieving feels like a tidal wave. You need to ride the wave and just be in that space until it passes through you. It could go away for hours, days, weeks or months throughout your first couple years. But remember this:

Grieving is energy. Energy doesn’t go away, it only changes form.

This is why it is very important to feel the pain and let it pass. It may never go away completely, but it will be a lot easier over time if you deal with it right away. Otherwise, it can turn into prolonged sadness, anger, or worse.

I believe there are no accidents. And, I believe my mom showed up to comfort me.  In next week’s blog, I’ll write the incredible and very funny sign my mom gave me to let me know she is here with me. I am excited to sense and feel her energy around me again. I know my mom just wants me to know she is more alive then ever after having much needed rest.

Signs From Loved Ones In Heaven – Part- 3

Signs from My Son in HeavenI have so many beautiful stories to share with you of signs from loved ones in heaven. If you haven’t read the two past week’s blogs which began this series, I’d like to encourage you to do so. I wrote about 4 amazing signs from two of my loved ones. Today is a continuation titled “Signs from Loved Ones in Heaven – Part – 3.” After several weeks, I started sensing my son’s presence and being more open to signs from him. 

You can learn to recognize signs from your loved ones in heaven too.

 My Son Max – Story of the Two Butterflies and the Feather. One sunny afternoon, I was getting ready to make lunch. I already started seeing 1-white butterfly flying around my yard while I sat on my back porch swing almost daily since my son’s passing. I learned how multi-dimensional our souls are. When you think of one of your loved ones in heaven, they are there with you at that moment.

This is how connected we are to our loved ones in heaven.

The summer of 2013, when I saw a white butterfly, I felt it was a sign from my son, Max saying “Hello, I’m here, and I’m watching over you.” Probably because I had never seen a white butterfly in my backyard before he went to heaven.

As I looked out the kitchen window, I asked Max to send me 2 white butterflies as a sign to let me know he really is here with me. I figured that would be pretty incredible if that happened.

loved ones in heaven featherI knew there was “No time” in heaven which meant it could happen anytime. The next day, I went outside to my backyard just for a split moment to pick up a beautiful yellow feather I saw out the window floating down from the sky onto my lawn. As soon as I stood up from picking up the beautiful feather, two white butterflies flew right past me over the fence into another property.

How clever! One of my most precious loved ones in heaven, Max sent me a feather as a sign to get my attention so I would see the two butterflies coming my way.

“Wow,” I thought, thank you Max. You are so amazing, I love you.” You really did get my attention with the feather.” If I hadn’t been looking out the window at that very second to see the feather floating from the sky, I wouldn’t have seen the two butterflies.” He sent me a beautiful feather and 2 white butterflies. As incredible as this may sound, it was … a beautiful sign from my son. I started collecting feathers that day.

I learned our loved ones in heaven aren’t the actual butterfly, but can place the thought in our mind to guide us to go outside and see the butterfly at the exact moment when it passes.

I hope this story encourages you to look for signs from your loved ones in heaven. They really do want you to know they are happy and doing well. If you have a story to encourage my readers you’d like to share, please email me at kim@healingagrievingheart.com.

Signs From Loved Ones in Heaven – Part-2

loved onesI have so many beautiful stories to share with you of signs from my loved ones. If you haven’t read last week’s blog which began this series, I’d like to encourage you to do so. I wrote about 3 amazing signs from one of my loved ones. Today is a continuation of last week’s blog, titled “Signs from Loved Ones in Heaven – Part – 2. “I will share a sign from my beautiful mom. My mom passed over last year in 2013  2-months before my son, Max unexpectedly went to heaven.

The day after my mom’s funeral I noticed a beautiful yellow butterfly with black markings on it was flying around me while I sat on the porch swing in my backyard.

As a loved ones sign to me, I immediately thought of mom as her favorite color was yellow. And, I hadn’t seen this butterfly in my backyard before.

I felt it was a sign from one of my loved ones letting me know she is alive and well. I continued to see this yellow butterfly in my backyard flying around me over the next 2 months until my son, Max came to visit me for a 2-week visit. Suddenly, I didn’t see the yellow butterfly again. I learned when I saw the yellow butterfly, my mom’s spirit was standing next to me giving me thoughts to go outside so I would see the yellow butterfly.

This sign from one of my loved ones gave me great comfort

I knew she was watching over me. I learned when I think of one of my loved ones they are there with me at the moment I have the thought. And your loved ones are with you too.

I hope this story encourages you to look for signs from your loved ones who’ve crossed over and want you to know they are happy, doing well and watching over you. If you have a story to encourage my readers you’d like to share, please email me at kim@healingagrievingheart.com.

Loved Ones from Heaven Brings Signs to Comfort You – Part-1

Signs from Loved Ones in HeavenWelcome to my Blog post titled Loved Ones from Heaven Brings Signs to Comfort You. I have so many beautiful stories to share with you of signs from my son, Max; I decided to create this blog as a series titled Loved Ones in Heaven Brings Signs to Comfort You. Here are the first three signs from my son, Max.

Loved Ones from Heaven Brings Signs to Comfort You #1 Baby Bird Story

The day after I got home from my son’s funeral, I looked out the kitchen window at my patio table and chairs on a sunny day when I saw a baby bird sitting on the back of one of the chairs. I wondered how he got there. I went outside to see this baby bird close up. He just sat there looking at me. I looked around the backyard and saw the mama bird sitting on the fence behind me with a worm in her mouth watching us. I knew it was best not to touch this cute little bird.

Today, I know this was a Sign from one of my Loved Ones, to let me know, in his own way, he is here watching over me and doing fine.  I’ve learned that only my son’s body died and he went home to heaven. I also learned our loved ones really do want us to know they are very much alive and well.

Loved Ones from Heaven Brings Signs to Comfort You – Knowing they are in a place more joyful and more beautiful than we can even comprehend here on Earth.

So I want to encourage you to look for signs from your loved ones wanting to connect with you and comfort you. The easiest way for spirits to get your attention is through dreams, electricity, phone systems, computers and nature via butterflies, birds and dragonflies, etc. I have so many stories to share. Today, I will share with you 3 of my favorite stories of how Max let me know he was the one playing around with my computer and phone in ways I had to know it was him. Through these stories, my hope is to open your mind to look for signs from your loved ones who want to say “hello” and comfort you too. This first story is amazing!

 Loved Ones from Heaven Brings Signs to Comfort You #2 Computer Story

Signs from our Loved Ones in HeavenOne morning I was working on my laptop posting links on Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn. Suddenly all the tabs on my computer started scrambling around. I sat there watching my computer just waiting for it to stop so I could continue my work. It lasted a couple minutes. As soon as the tabs stopped scrambling around, pictures of my son filled my computer screen. I sadly looked at the beautiful pictures from my son’s memorial guestbook that mysteriously showed up on my computer screen. You’re probably wondering if these pictures were on one of the Tabs scrambling and they were not.

I still didn’t realize Max made this happen until I called one of my girlfriends to tell her what just happened. She told me it was a sign from Max. This was my first experience that led to my awareness that Max was trying to connect to me and comfort me in any way he can. As soon as I hung up the phone with my girlfriend, the phone immediately rang again. This leads to story #3.

Loved Ones from Heaven Brings Signs to Comfort You #3 Phone Story

I picked up the phone. It was an old voice mail message from Max’s dad telling me how well Max was doing. He said they were going for a walk, it was a beautiful day and Max’s 21st birthday was coming up. He talked about things that were current at that time.

I recognized this message as one of my Loved Ones from Heaven because the voice message was from over 1-year before my son passed over the veil.

This was clearly another message from my son, telling me he is here with me and doing well.

I hope these Signs of Our Loved Ones in Heaven brings comfort to you and encourages you to look for signs from your loved ones who’ve crossed over. I hope you realize they really do want you to know they are happy and doing well. If you have a story to encourage readers you’d like to share, please email me at kim@healingagrievingheart.com.
