Hacking the Afterlife, healing from grief and a visit from Prince Hacking The Afterlife podcast

    • Spirituality

A short podcast today as Jennifer was juggling a number of things including her mom being in the hospital.  We all wish her mom a speedy recovery from hurting her hip!

Today's podcast deals a bit with grief, and the process of helping people recover from grief.  Jennifer's dad Jim passed some years ago, and he's always got an interesting perspective when it comes to helping people with grief.

He was the one who told us "try to move grief to nostalgia."  Neither of us understood what that meant, and he explained (through Jennifer) that "grief is mostly sad memories and nostalgia has both sad and happier memories. When you can move grief to nostalgia you can begin the healing process."

It also helps to realize that this new information is coming from someone no longer on the planet. So there's that - getting new information from someone we love who is no longer here.  Which proves to the person who is getting the new information that life goes on.

Prince showed up, as he had in the past - and because someone complained about us "always having celebrities" I'm afraid I may have cut short what he had to say, because of my comment about "getting insight from Prince instead of an average Jane and Joe."

Not to say that he didn't give us advice, but instead of just asking his opinion from his new perspective, I got caught up in saying "they don't have to access you to get this information, do they?"  It's my way of repeating what we've heard constantly - there is no hierarchy on the flipside, but people are so adamant that hierarchy exists, they can't hear advice from people no longer on the planet because they're judging them as "a celebrity."

Apologies to Prince if I cut him off.  We also discuss a bit about the process of accessing our loved ones on the other side, and then Jennifer had to depart to continue her work which includes pro bono work for law enforcement agencies nationwide on missing person cases.

We've been doing this weekly for over seven years, so I have to let it be whatever it is in terms of what the folks on the flipside want to impart on our podcast.

We'll see her hopefully next week!

In the meantime say hello to whomever it is that wants to say hello.  Could be an old friend, a relative who sent you here to hear this session.

Enjoy!
