". . . an ancient blend of 5 essential oils
protects against 99.96% of bacteria and many viruses-it even
worked against the black plague?
"Deep in the Royal English Archives is a 15th century recipe
so powerful that it protected those who used it from the black
plague. This recipe involves a blend of 5 essential oils,
and its use was traced to a group of thieves who, at the time of
the black plague, were amassing a fortune by robbing the highly
contagious dead bodies of victims.
"Eventually, four of the thieves got caught red-handed by
the king's men while plundering. In order to avoid being
burned at the stake, the thieves made a deal: they agreed to
reveal their secret to immunity. The 5-oil blend they
disclosed is now known as "thieves oil" and it can
protect you and your family from a host of serious infectious

Death, Dying, and the Afterlife
We are not comfortable with death in the US culture. Death reminds us of
our own mortality. We'd much rather ignore it . . . until we
can't. Many people are leaving, so this month's The Spiritual
Path is dedicated to helping us understand a little bit more
about death, dying, and the afterlife.
We only scratch the surface in this newsletter, but hopefully the
information here helps to answer a few questions and ease a
little pain. As always, Phillip, my spirit guide, lends his
wisdom, so be sure to read what he has to say in "Phillip's
Wisdom." In "Ways You Can Be of Service To Yourself and
Others," we address both the person who is grieving and
friends of people who are grieving, with suggestions we trust
will be helpful. Learn about an ancient healing remedy that even
worked in the black plague in "Did You Know?" And
please read my column "On Death, Dying, and the
Afterlife" where I answer the questions I am most often
asked as a psychic medium.

Path you are encouraged to share them as well as share the

Death, as this transition is called in
your universe, is a passing from one level to another, an
exchange if you
will, of a body for a different mode of being. The physical body
is a temporal body - to help and allow - the soul to participate
in physical and emotional activity within the laws and
restrictions of this universe, the purpose of which is to foster
the growing of the earth's story for its own sake.
Once the body is laid down, the soul returns to the spirit body,
which in essence is light. This human body has mass, so it is
easier for the soul in spirit world to witness life of those in
the earth's vibration than for those in earth's vibration to
witness a loved one in spirit form.
We have spent eons alerting humans to fear not this transition,
yet many do. This usually does change; however, as death nears.
This is because as the human mind begins to perceive the spirit
world fear dissipates. This is as it should be.

Ways You Can Be of
Service To Yourself and Others
Being of service to yourself if you are
grieving begins with allowing yourself to grieve, and then to
heal. Being of service to someone who is grieving is not
something we are taught or something many are comfortable with.
It is my hope that these few suggestions will be of service to
If you have lost a love one
When someone we love dies, our lives are
turned upside down. Everything we knew as normal no longer
applies. Our life will never again be the same, and it's up to us
to find a new normal.
Grieving is a normal process we experience when we lose someone
we love, and healing takes time, but we do not want to get caught
in the grief. That serves no one, not the one who died, not us,
not other family members.
Too often we think that if we laugh we are
being disrespectful. Quite the contrary. Over and over, loved
ones in spirit world ask me to tell their family and friends to
laugh, have fun, and celebrate the time they had together.
Our loved ones in spirit world want us to
move on with our lives. If we are unable to move out of heavy
grief, we are keeping both them and us from being able to move
on. This is not to say we will stop missing them. We may always
miss them. It is also not to say that we will lose contact with
them if we let go of the heavy grief. The opposite is true. Once
the grieving is lessened, it is easier to communicate between the
Our loved ones in spirit world want us to be happy and to live a
full and fulfilling life. If you were the one in spirit world, is
this not what you would want for those you love? Of course it is.
Now is the time to reach out. There are many who care about you,
but do not know what you need. Do you need food because you have
family coming in from out of town? Do you need help making
decisions? Do you need a ride somewhere? Do you need someone to
talk to? Your friends will tell you to call if you need anything.
They mean it, but you must decide what you need, and then ask for
it . . . as hard as that may be, now is the time.
If someone you know has lost a loved one
So often we do not know what to say to the
grieving family, and often we don't need words. We just need to
be present for the person grieving and sit with them with our
hearts open to listen to what they need to say or to just be
together in silence.
Should you go to the visitation or attend the funeral? Yes, to
attending the visitation. This is a way of paying respect to the
one who has passed and to those who are grieving, and to hold
them in their loss. A simple, "I'm sorry for your
loss," are the only words that are needed. Unless you know
the grieving person's religious or spiritual beliefs, be cautious
of saying such things as, "He's in a better place now,"
or "She's out of pain and in heaven," or "It was
his time," or any other platitude that you say because you
do not know what to say. Remember, the person grieving is in
pain. Give them your presence, love, hugs, if appropriate, and
deep attention. This is greater than any words. Funerals may be
public or they may be for the family and close friends. Find out
before assuming you should or should not attend.
Sending a card is always appropriate. Whether you send a short
handwritten note or send a sympathy card, you are letting the
person who is grieving know that someone cares. Sending flowers
may or may not be appropriate, depending on your budget and
relationship with the family. Making a donation to the chosen
charity is also a lovely and appreciated gesture to show you
care. Again this depends on your budget. Please do not feel you
need to spend money you do not have. A phone call or card are
just as appreciated.
On Death, Dying, and the Afterlife
As a psychic medium, I am honored to pass along messages from spirit world to
grieving loved ones here in our world. Many of my clients have
the same questions about those who have passed over. Following
are the most asked questions, with brief answers about my
understanding of death, dying, and the afterlife that I've
garnered over the years.
Was my loved one afraid?
Phillip addressed this in "Phillip's
Wisdom," but it bears repeating that as someone approaches
death, spirit world opens up to them, which removed fear. Whether
death comes quickly or over a period of time, we all pass through
a tunnel of light, which heals the fear as we allow ourselves to
be immersed in a sense of being deeply loved. In this state, we
meet our loved ones already on the other side along with our
guides, healers, teachers, and angels, who all greet us.
Can my love one see me?
Yes, your loved one can see you. This can
happen instantaneously or it may take some time to allow the
loved one to learn a new way of seeing, or the loved one may need
to rest. There is no time in spirit world, so patience may be
needed from those of us on this side of the veil.
Did s/he attend her or his funeral or
Often. When I was barely old enough to walk,
I was at my grandfather's funeral. I remember holding my mother's
hand and talking with my grandfather. When Mother asked me who I
was talking with, I told her Grandpa. Of course she explained why
that was impossible. I knew better. He was as dense to me as
every other person in the room. I still see, or sometimes just
sense, people at their own funeral, but I don't see them as opaque
as I saw my grandfather.
What does s/he do in spirit world?
When we pass over, unless we are very highly
evolved, we usually recreate a world similar to the world we knew
and spend our time doing what we most love to do. An artist
friend of mine, who never had enough time to paint, spends time
painting. My mother, who never had much time to just relax, often
sits on a park bench that overlooks a quiet lake, while holding
hands with her beloved. Life there is as individual as life here.
Does s/he miss me and our family?
Yes, we do not suddenly lose our humanness.
The grieving is different from that which we experience here in
that it is tied to the depth of our grieving.
How can s/he be there and also be watching
over me and our family?
Once in spirit world, it is much easier to
bifurcate, to be in multiple places at the same time, so your
loved one can be with you, with another family member, and off
fishing all at the same time.
How can I communicate with my loved one?
There are multiple ways. Learning to
communicate in this new way takes patience. It may take time for
our grief to lessen. When we are grieving heavily, our energy is
heavier, which makes it more difficult for the other to reach us.
Some of the most common ways loved ones in spirit world
communicate with us is through animals, especially birds that
peck at a window or butterflies that fly close to us again and
again; electronics, such as a TV or radio suddenly coming on;
electrical appliances, such as lights blinking; seeing the person
in a crowd or in your peripheral vision; smelling an aroma that
reminds you of the person; feeling the person touch you or beside
you while you sleep; hearing the person speak to you or receiving
a phone call or text message; vivid dreams of the person being
there, moved photographs or other meaningful objects being
knocked over; and significant objects disappearing and
