How To Deal With The Loss Of A Loved One
How To Deal with Losing A Loved One Psychic Sylvia Browne, World-renowned Psychic Sylvia Browne pictures by Sylvia Browne

Everyone’s grief is relative to them – just as happiness is. I don’t like to quantify pain, but I feel that the death of a child is by far the most tragic loss one can go through. This doesn’t minimize the anguish you may feel when a parent, spouse, or friend passes away, since these are all life-altering events, but to lose a child is beyond comparison.

Yet even though death may seem unfair – and for those who are left behind, it certainly leaves a deep wound – it’s a part of life that’s as natural as eating or sleeping. In fact, the end is really the beginning for all of us, since our true Home is on the Other Side. I know that this may not be much comfort when we’re still caught here in “hell” (and this life is hell in the sense that we’re here to learn some difficult lessons), but our friends and family members who have passed over are all happy where they are!

I lost two more loved ones this past year, one of them being Abass Nadim, who was my Egyptian tour guide and dearest friend. He died of a heart attack while vacationing in Peru. First of all, I told him not to go on this trip, and warned him that if he did, he should not go climbing. He did both. I’ve been asked if I have the power to control other people’s lives, and while of course I can’t, I sometimes wish I could. I loved Abass, and even though he contacted me just after his death to tell me he was okay, I was still shocked and angry that this wondrous light went out of so many lives. A million memories filled my mind: his love of life and his children, the times we laughed and how he would call to cheer me up when I was going through a painful divorce. How will Egypt be the same without him? I wondered. I went through the normal stages of disbelief and shock, and then I remembered that this life is like a dream, and one day, we’ll all wake up and be with our loved ones again.

Similarly, just a week before he passed away, I’d expressed to my friend Kevyn Aucoin, the celebrity makeup artist, that I was worried about him. He just laughed it off. I won’t go into the details, but soon after, a beautiful, talented soul was lost to us. Kevyn gave me a message after he left this world, saying, “I’m sorry that I didn’t plant the flowers.” (Later, his family validated that he had been meaning to get some flowers planted.) Still, once again, I was left with that hollow ache and the often-asked question, “Why him?” When you see so many dark, evil entities living out their lives and blithely making everyone miserable, it’s almost impossible to understand why the gentle, caring ones among us are often taken so suddenly.

It may be difficult to comprehend, but there’s a reason why good people take their exit points early and cross over to the Other Side. You see, we each have five exit points that we can take to go Home. Many times, the most kindhearted people take them early because they’re tired of life, they feel that they’ve completed their mission for God and they’re simply ready to go. When I was 26 and had my near-death experience, I was told by a beautiful entity to go back to Earth because I had more to do, I could also faintly hear a nurse screaming, “Don’t go, Sylvia, we need you!” What really drew me back, however, was the fact that for a split second it entered my consciousness that I didn’t want to leave my only son (at the time), Paul, with my first husband.

If you haven’t ever believed in an afterlife, I can only tell you that I’ve received thousands of e-mails and letters from people who have visited the Other Side in dreams, astral travels, near-death experiences, and hypnosis regressions, and they all describe the same topographical features. How can these people from different religions, cultures, and ethnic groups – both skeptics and believers alike – all see the same thing? Statistically it’s an impossibility; and from the perspective of a researcher, when you keep running into identical accounts, you not only believe, you have confirmation. Personally, I’m convinced that our souls not only survive death, but they go to a place of beauty and peace where we’re all reunited with our loved ones who have passed before us.

God Bess Sylvia, Thank you for this article, it helps me alittle, although I still do not understand why my first born son had to be taken from me in a murder one month exactly before his 31st birthday this june 4th. No more laughs with him, no more being the brunt of his pranks, and no more I love you Mom. I miss him and his kind voice so very much. they caught the two who viciously murdered him , but they will most likely get a slap on the hand and sent back to puerto rico and then sneak back in the country to do it all again. I so much want to go shoot them myself and save this world of two thugs!! But my daughter and Aunt and grandchildren are preventing me from this. I wish I could hear him one more time, say I love you mom, and he could hear me one more time as to how very much I love him and was proud of him. I wish I could understand why him. We endured so much in this hell, my two children and I. Please Sylvia tell my Dear Dear Son, Sam how very much his mother and sister love him. Thank you again for such a wonderful article and many comments, you always think your loss it the worst until you read other folks words of their own loss. At the time you think and feel like yours is the only one in the world. I wish to say God Bless all those whom have lost a child either by illness or murder or accident. " My heart shares the same heaviness and pain as yours and I Pray for you all ".

God Bless Sylvia, I have recently lost my third child. My daughter Christina, she was very sick with all kinds of illness, but her death was due to compilcations of diabeties. she was 36. My frist born Son was killed in a truck accident and killed instantly at the age of 16 years old. My youngest daughter was 18 when she was discovered on the side of highway road. I remember each death as if it were yesterday. The frist I thought I could not go on, but as they say time heals all wounds.My second child my youngest daughter, I had a nervous break down. I couldn't take the hurt and the burning pain. My third child, my daughter,even though she had all those illness, I did come to terms with accepting. Not her death though, I am some what relieved that she is not suffering any more and she is with her siblings and Grandfather on the other side. I cryed so much in the begining, but now am just numb, from every thing, I go thur the motions of everyday living, and I have dreams of her, but Its a huge part of me that is missing. God I wish, I could have told them how much I loved them and wish God had not taken them away from me. I know its his plans. but every Mother just wishes for that one chaance to say and hear back from them, that I love them and that they are all together. I believe in the other side, cause I too, have had a near death experince. Sylvia as a Mother to Mother, please tell my children I love them and theres not a day that goes by that they're in my thoughts and prayers, Thank you Sylvia, God bless you and your wonderful gift. Norma C.

Sylvia,Sat past I lost my Service Dog of 12 wonderful years.She was a Rottie and my best friend after my husbands untimely demise. My father was killed on his Harley comming home from work when I was 17, My Boyfriend Tom died of a heart attack. My fiance after my Husband died of a car wreck comming home from work. My boyfriend at high school Gary was killed in car wreck. My best friend Brian fell over dead with a stroke last year. I am soo sad for the last week. I did a rain dance last nite and it stormed and rained. I slept thru it, Yet I believe God washed my porch spots where my beloved Spoiled Llana the Rottie was laying before god sent a man whom loves rotties to take my baby girl and spread her ashes with the many other animals who have passed. I heard a yelp about an hour after he took her. I believe it was her going to heaven. It came from the room that she passed in my arms. It was uncany. I went to the cemetary where my father is buryed last Mon.Memorial day, I lay some flowers and told my father and all the men whom have passed in my life. I give you the gift of my baby girl,Spoiled she is a good girl, greet her and you all be well until I can join yous!!!! With all my love Evonne

Iagree that death is very hard, but I don;t know which is worse. Watching your loved one die as you hold his hand and have go lifeless, or having no knowledge, untill you get that horrible phone call. My friends 24 yr old son was killed in a very stupid motorcycle accident, he slid into a curb, was thrown and died. Luckily I only had to watch my husband die at home for 4 days, God was merciful, and the family got closure from it so I think losing a child suddenly is worse. Thanks for reading this it makes me fell better and hopefully I helped some one understand something.Thank you sylvia for your books they really gave much needed insight.Debbie P from Las Vegas Nv.

This article is very helpful, especially for myself who did lose a child 1 month after he turned 21. That was almost 4 years ago, and it seems to be hitting me harder this year than the previous years. I definitely agree that losing any loved one is difficult, but the loss of a child you have raised by yourself your entire life, is never ending. I have heard from him several times after he passed, but the most effective one was less than a day after he passed that he contacted me. I was driving to meet with my mother regarding making arrangements for the funeral and he came through loud and clear, telling me that he was ok. About a month later, he came to me in the form of a dream that I had received a telephone call from him telling me where he was which at that time he told me he was in Gettysburg, PA. Since he never really showed much of an interest in Gettysburg, it kind of surprised me so I asked him what he was doing there. He informed me that he felt like going there and visiting. He still continues to keep in contact with myself and it helps with the grief to a point. Thank you Sylvia, for writing about this topic. It's an unbearable issue, but the article still helps me and others cope with this issue.

Hello I can assure you that losing a spouse that you have been with since you were 16 years of age until 54 and best of friends did everything together and he was my mentor,rock,strength and part of my body literally is much harder than losing a child. Since my husband has been gone it feels as if I have been amputated and my heart is gone. I don't know who I am without him because it has always just been me and him.We were so close that I was having his symptoms of heart trouble two weeks before he died suddenly of a heart attack.We could feel each others pain or anything.We were say something the other one was fixing to say or thinking about to say.We were very very close.I don't know how I am even existing in this world because I miss him so bad.I cry all the time and wished to God there was something that I could do to ease this pain and voidness in my heart go away.I am so lonely without him for he was and is a part of my body and I will love him forever.I don't mean any disrepect to people who have lost their child but I do know losing a spouse who is part of your body is so bad that I smother and wanted to take my life to be with him but thanks to a neighbor that just happen to come by out of the blue saved my life for some reason. All people who is reading this please pray for me as I pray for all of y'all with your pain as well.I wish I had the money to pay Chris or Sylvia money to talk to my husband for me in a reading but I don't so I have to deal with this myself.Thank you Martha.

I lost my brother in 1988 whom was my best friend in life. His body was lost at sea. There has been alot of controversy surrounding his drowning. I really don't know the truth. He comes to me in dreams alot. I can also feel him in my room sometimes. The grief has never went away. I have been struggling with this for the past 20 years. I hope that what you say is true, because I need to find some kind of closure. This is pure torture.

Someone close to me was murdered. Everyone around him knew who did it and why. The police did nothing.

I am filled with gult regarding the death of my husband this past July. He left us suddenly and with plenty of warning but no one listened. He carying out for help but no one came. He had bi polor and depression and I knew that there was the possibility that he may hurt himself if I left him in June. I just had to get away from a bad releationship of 27 years. Thought I would have him in my life forever. Now what? Met a wonderfull man but dont feel like I deserve him. Is my husband ok? Did he go to heaven or is he burning in hell? Thanks Shari in St. Paul, Mn
