How can a grieving person really know that there is an afterlife and their loved one is happy?

We are so fortunate to be living in this time when there is an explosion of information available about what REALLY happens when you die. There are many people and organisations that can help those who are grieving to realise that death is not the end of relationship with our loved one and that they continue to exist on a different frequency.

1) Traditional grief support organisations and counseling can
offer you encouragement, support and advice through the grieving process. They will not tell you what to do or how you should be feeling, but they may put forward ideas and strategies to help you cope. However they will not encourage any discussion of the afterlife.

2) The Forever Family Foundation
was started in the USA by parents who were attending a grief support group and were forced to talk about their readings with mediums in the carpark.

Join the Forever Family Foundation

For child loss join Helping Parents Heal - a US based support group. There is also an online Face book group - Helping Parents Heal Online.
There is also an Australian and New Zealand group of Helping Parents Heal on Facebook which hosts regular online meetings using the meeting platform zoom.

4) For child loss
Download a free copy of Sheri Perl's
The Grieving Parents' Handbook

Love knows no Death
This workbook is an essential part of an innovative approach to grief transformation. This counseling approach, which integrates both written and video lessons, reflects an “unbelievable truth” that the human mind, consciousness and personality do not end with the death of the physical body. In other words, your deceased love one is not, in fact, deceased.

Have a reading with a reputable medium.

How to find a good medium
A psychic reads your aura and tells you possible future trends. They may not connect with spirit at all. A medium has this ability but is also able to go to a different vibration and actually feel, hear or see the spirit of the deceased.

There are some very dishonest people who pretend to be psychics to defraud people. These are fairly easy to spot. They are usually backyard operators. They tell you you have a curse around you and you need to give them your money or possessions to be "cleansed" and they ask you to keep coming back to them regularly.

However there are also
some very genuine people who are not dishonest, but have not had sufficient training or development to really connect with the spirit world and hold the connection. They may really think that they are getting information from a spirit but they are reading your aura - or their own imagination. They ask you lots of questions and give you a lot of vague things that could apply to anyone e.g. "They are telling me that you've been under a lot of stress...have a few health problems...are thinking about travel ling.."

Having a reading with someone like this can be very disappointing. If you find after 10 minutes that the information they are giving you is totally vague or way off, stop the reading and ask for your money back.

So it is important to find a genuine medium who has passed some kind of accreditation or is recommended to you. This may mean having to join a waiting list as really good mediums are highly vlaued.

Online readings give you a wider choice
You can book a consultation with a genuine recommended medium who lives anywhere in the world via Skype or phone or an online meeting platform. This is just as effective as a face to face reading and allows you a much wider choice.

The going rate in The US and Australia is between $100 and $150 US. Some mediums especially in the UK charge less and highly gifted and celebrity mediums may charge more.

If you join a grief group or afterlife discussion group on Facebook you will usually find people who are only too happy to share details of mediums who gave them a good reading. You can ask the group moderators for suggestions. But beware of people frequent the group touting for readings. Spiritualist churches are another good source of referrals.

And these days you will be surprised how many of your friends, workmates and relatives have been to see a medium and only mention it if the topic is raised.

Organisations that recommend mediums
If you can't find a personally recommended medium choose one recommended by a reputable organisation.

Mark Ireland, co-founder of Helping Parents Heal, has a program to certify mediums.

Forever Family Foundation certified mediums

Windbridge Institute tests mediums

Bob Olson lists recommended mediums in various countries.

In England The Spiritualist Association of Great Britain has mediums who offer a 30 minute session by Skype for 35 pounds ($45 US or $62)

The Arthur FIndlay College is the leading college for the development of mediumship and the tutors at the College are wonderful mediums who usually are available for readings by skype.

Here is a video showing how mediums at the Arthur Findlay college are trained to give evidence.

How to assess a reading.
The key thing about a good reading is 1) specific evidence that identifies the communicator and 2) whether an emotional connection was achieved. Did you feel a re-connection with the person, a resolution of blockages, a feeling of love? Did you get the feeling that the person in spirit is happy and wants you to be happy as well? A good reading should significantly reduce your grief.

23) Watch videos of Near Death Experiencers and
work your way through Kevin Williams’ http://www.near-death.com/

27) You might like to have a between life regression where you go to where you were planning this life.
See www.victorzammit.com/evidence/interlife.htm

28) Many people find the Monroe Institute Programs very helpful http://www.monroeinstitute.org/ (hint you can buy some of the CDs and do the programs from home).

29) A number of people claim to have been able to reunite with loved ones in the afterlife in full waking consciousness having out of body experiences.
