“Your soul is lit from within, and that light is a spark of divinity shining through you.
It is steady and unwavering, and like your consciousness, it goes where you go.”
Kira Rosner, When Souls Take Flight: Coping with Grief
“When Souls Take Flight is a great gift for anyone dealing with the process of transition. Whether you are in the beginning, middle, or end of the process, this book will prove to be a great read and an uplifting gift.”
– Dannion Brinkley, Author of Saved by the Light & The Secrets of the Light
ON DEATH & DYING
When someone we love passes on, there are two dynamics at play: what happens to us and what happens to our loved one.
What happens to us? We are faced with going on with our lives with some degree of normalcy at a time when nothing feels like it will ever be normal again. It’s a big change and an enormous adjustment that demands that we befriend ourselves. How? By honoring our experience. How? By being present with our feelings without judging them. I’ll repeat that. By being present with our feelings without judging them and honoring our experience.
What happens to our loved one? Keep in mind that souls exist on a subtler dimension than we do. So viewing death through our eyes could be very different than what a soul experiences. For example, when a loved one departs, we tend to feel that something has ended. A soul may very well feel, that for them, something has begun anew. To a soul, leaving the body is a graceful transition from one sanctified adventure to another.
What happens someone dies? When our loved one takes his or her final breath, their soul departs with their life force fully intact. They will return home to a place where love is never lost. Where they will be lovingly received by their celestial families. Where the presence of those they cherish is greater than their absence. Where they surrender judgment and remember their willingness to grow. Where the bigger picture is the only picture. Where they recognize themselves as children of the divine. #soulsliveon #loveneverdies #forevertruths.
Best selling author Dannion Brinkley is one of my heroes, and I am humbled that he endorsed When Souls Take Flight. In 1997 Dannion began “The Twilight Brigade, Compassion in Action” as a way of honoring the needs of veterans. Among their services, they offer free training for volunteers with the intention that no veteran should be alone at the end of their life. Dannion, a veteran of the United States Marine Corp, has sat at the bedside of countless deserving veterans as they’ve departed.

My reason for beginning this website was because I realized that not everyone is comfortable on facebook or any platform you need to sign up for in order to read. By sharing my insights on a website, I felt I could reach out to more people.
