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.

Sylvia Browne is without question, "America's #1 Psychic," an internationally known psychic and medium.

Bless you, Sylvia! To have known you in this lifetime is a true blessing. You have enriched my life. I am grateful and I love you, dearly. In my lifetime my parents, all grandparents, uncles, an aunt, many friends and pets have passed over to the Other Side. Gone HOME! I have not lost any of them. They are with me in spirit and I know we will be together once again when I too, go HOME. Some of my loved ones have come to visit me in spirit and I have found great comfort having had this experience. Even if they hadn't, my faith and belief would still comfort me. As you already know, we need to look at ourselves as so much more than just a person and a body. Our body holds the most precious entity; our soul, our spirit. This is the part of us we need to feed while here in this life. Not our vanity, pride, ego or that which is, of this life. We must prepare ourselves for our return HOME. We will all fall asleep oneday, just to wake up in a place that is beyond our earthly conception and understanding of beauty, peace and love. Having this belief is comforting, and allows me to truly focus on the lessons I must learn and the love I must give today, tomorrow and always. Blessings and love to everyone, Susan in Maryland

It was weird to see this today as I remember my dad. He died two years ago today. It was terrible to see such a strong person dwindle down to nothing but skin and bone in such a short time. I miss him and think of him daily, but I'm glad he's not suffering anymore. I still don't understand why the doctors did not find the cancer sooner. My dad always went to the doctor when he was supposed to. He did everything right. Not long before being diagnosed with cancer, he had a chest x-ray and nothing was said about cancer. A dermatologist discovered the cancer when my dad had a sore that wouldn't heal. A petscan revealed cancer in the lungs and four other parts of his body. Strange that he never had a heart attack because his heart was only working at about 35%. We never expected him to die of cancer. It blind-sided us, but I know we did what we could. He was at home with all of us around him. It still seems like a bad dream.

I Lost the Love of my life almost three years ago.I was not with him when he passed because i could'nt except the fact that he was dying. I wanted him to get mad and fight harder.I have truly regret that I was not there does he know how much I love and miss him? I don't ever feel him around me. I had just lost my step-dad 9 months eailer, after taking care of him for a year and a half. I just could'nt bare the thought of him leaving me. I just want him to know when I play the song Nobody Knows I'm PLAYING IT FOR HIM. Thank you Sylvia

I would just like to thank you sylvia, I really do not think that any of us will ever know , with out a doubt what happens after we leave here, but death has always scared me until I read your books. Your definition of an after life has given me an explanation that feels good. I choose to believe because it makes me feel good and I can now handle death in a healthy nature. I grieve for the loss but I celebrate my loved ones new and loving adventure that they are now enjoying.To be able to believe that there is something better than this world is a blessing and I plan to learn as much as I can while I am here so that may be I will not feel a need to ever come back again. Once a person learns to let go of their ego their life changes and they can begin to see clear at all life has to teach us.

If life is hell then where do people who are mean and cruel up to the end go like my brother that just passed. He was the eldest of us 6 kids and was self centered, He spoke with a cruel and cutting toung. He distorted even the simplest of facts. I would not want for him to be in the hell that we read in the Bible but I donot want to meet him on the other side either, 60 years of my life I have had to live with him and he spent 69 years here hurting others.

Thank You Sylvia, you answered my question I asked you about my daughter Amanda that I lost when she was 13 days old....thank you so very much for the comfort...if you only knew what this means to me....its a long story but I asked God to take her because of medical reasons, I didn't give up, I trusted God, but it was the hardest thing I ever did in my life and I still miss her after 25 years and love her dearly with all my heart and soul...Love to you, Kim Ann
