Before the Soul Comes into a Body



Before a Soul Comes into a Body  February 6, 2009 — kabbalahthoughts 

Understand the reward of the souls: Before a soul comes into a body, it is but a tiny dot, though attached to the root as a branch to a tree. This dot is called “the root of the soul and its world.” Had it not entered this world in a body, it would have had only its own world, meaning its own share of the root.

My after death contact, departing visions with my mother and grandmother


When I was just 16 years old, my mother passed from breast cancer. She was only 38. Her death left me heartsick, but I had one last encounter with her which helped me survive this traumatic loss.

On the morning of the death, I awoke at 5 AM in the morning and “knew” that she was moving on. She had been in the hospital for about a week and though I had known she was very ill, I had no idea he death would come so soon.

After “feeling” that she had stopped by to say good bye, I got up out of bed, put my slippers on, went down stairs and sat by the phone. I “knew” someone would soon be calling to tell me about her passing.

Within just a very few minutes, the telephone rang. On the other end of the line was a family friend letting me know my Marilyn Monroe “look-a-like” mother had taken flight and moved.

I called this last encounter with my mother, “One Last Hug Before I Go” and years later this became a title for one of my books. After she passed, my grandmother took over and parented me as best as she could.

Today is her passing anniversary, and though I didn’t have a departing vision with her, I have had some incredible after death comminications. One in particular is most memorable. I grieved her passing for months. She had replaced my mother and now she was gone.

Then I had a dream about her. In the dream she took me by the shoulders, shook me and said, “Get over it! You have a family to attend to. I’m fine!” That was so like her.

So, to all of the mothers and grandmothers, here and across the veil, HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY!
