I know the loss of a loved one is very difficult for people and with so many of my clients and connections at the moment experiencing loss I have been pondering on it a lot.
I have never really had a problem with death. My family used to say I was heartless, but I’ve never seen it as an issue.
A couple of years back we lost our beautiful mare Olive to colic, a horse that had been with us for 23 years. In such an instance you don’t actually loose them – you watch the turn of events unfold and then when all the possible interventions don’t pan out you have to make the heart wrenching decision to have them put to sleep to save them the agony when their death is inevitable.
Olive was a wonderful teacher
I stayed with Olive till the end. You could see she didn’t want to go, getting up between the euthanasia injections as if to say ‘I’m staying!’. I Ascended with her (a form of meditation I do) and permitted her soul to leave the physical plane and return to source.
It was very peaceful after that. Tears were ones of gratitude, she’d been an exceptional friend, teacher and companion and she was nearing 29, so she’d had a good in innings – far better than was expected. We were 100% up to date with each other too, with no unfinished business, so that made things easier ad well.
Olive taught me a very valuable lesson in her passing on, and that was that of course she wasn’t gone – just no longer physically present. She had come from source, manifested a physical reality and had returned to source.
A short while after I was helping out at a horse event for a crystal friend. Being surrounded for the whole day by hundreds of beautiful crystals was wonderful! When I came to leave one stood out, a small agate and quartz heart, half brown, half white. It seemed impossible to leave without it so I purchased it and put it in my pocket. I didn’t feel a particular draw to it, I just knew I couldn’t leave without it.
On returning home I put the remainder of our herd to bed at 7pm as always and my pocket began to burn! I realised at that point, the crystal wasn’t for me, it was for Murphy – the alpha male of he herd and the horse equivalent of Olive’s husband.
That crystal still remains in Murphy’s night pen, half brown to represent Olive and half white to represent him. I call it ‘the heart of the herd’ and call upon it when I am in need.
My sense is that Olive’s soul has moved on now, but the heart reminds me we are souls that live in a body and not the other way around, and she is there whenever I need.
Now I make it my purpose to get to know peoples souls, not their temporary physical form or egos and façades. If I didn’t I too could see myself being crippled by a persons passing for I would not have known the true them whilst it was easy and now the opportunity has gone.
I have friends now that I know this isn’t my only lifetime with. Olive was definitely a close connection to me, and I have others including a twin, a son and another sister or half sister I all consider to be part of my soul group and of great importance (even if we are not physically close). I even have issues with some of these people I have to work through where I perhaps left for this mortal plane before them and they are hurt and upset because of it! I work through these feelings and do what I must to help the other person become whole and return connection to balance.
I’d love to hear your stories of soul groups and connections with those on a different plane. I know I am not alone in experiencing this phenomena and I think if more people understood its existence they wouldn’t fear the passing of those they feel close to as they would know that they haven’t gone and they will be reunited with them in the end. xx
