My late husband Brad died five years ago and when I think back to the early days of my grieving I get a sudden sinking feeling of despair that I have to immediately pull myself back to the present.
It was a debilitating and very painful period I never want to experience again.
I felt so lost and empty that I didn’t even know who I was any longer.
Needless to say, I was crying all day and into the night.
Mercifully, I would be so exhausted from crying that once my head hit the pillow I would be asleep until morning.
My Grieving Turning Point
Within a few days after Brad passed very strange things started happening around me.
Things I could not explain.
Our dogs barking at the wall, a light turning on by itself, my kindle doing weird things, and so many unexplained activities.
Normally all this would scare me but something was very comforting about all this.
I started to wonder if Brad was still around and he was trying to let me know that he was not really gone to comfort me.
This is when I started doing some research on what happens when someone dies.
There is a lot of information out there by religious people, medical professionals who have worked in hospice, mediums, and scientists.
As I started reading these publications I felt better and better.
Now, I didn’t believe everything I read, some of them were pretty far fetched, but the consensus is that death of the physical body is not the end.
Knowing that there’s a possibility that Brad wasn’t gone and that he was still around me helped immensely.
At this point, I could actually see a light at the end of the tunnel.
Reaching Out To Other Widows
Nobody knows what a widow goes through except another widow.
After I started this blog, I created my Blossoming Widow Facebook Page to start reaching out to other widows.
I not only wanted to help other widows with what I have learned, but I also wanted to see if we were experiencing the same things.
So, I asked other widows to tell me stories of their spouses communicating with them after they have passed on.
The response was overwhelming.
Here is the collection of stories.
Please note that this book isn’t to change your beliefs, but rather to help you heal in knowing you’re not alone, and you are not going crazy.
If you have a hard time reading the text in the Flipbook here is a PDF file:
You are welcome to share, download or even print it.
If you are a blogger, you have permission to post the PDF on your blog, all I ask is proper credit to https://blossomingwidow.com with a Do-Follow backlink.
I truly hope this post will help you in the darkest days of your journey.
