Dealing With Your Own Mortality

Many people ask me what it is like to speak or deal with the dead on a daily basis.  Communication with those who have passed is called Mediumship and it is a very specific skill that I believe can be taught.  The issue with speaking to those who have passed is tricky in that it brings up the issue of your own mortality.  We seem to be fine as long as death is happening to someone else.  We say things at funerals that sound like...."I am so glad that so and so passed as they were suffering."  Somewhere around the mid-point in your life you may experience the consequences of smoking, drinking, or eating in excess. Body parts start to fail, and you are forced to consider your own mortality.  It isn't a comfortable pondering, but I believe it is necessary for the soul's growth.  Without these "markers" to remind us of the sanctity of life, the blessing that is the ability to see another sunrise or sunset, we would take time for granted.  Savor the kiss of the one you love.  Listen carefully to your children.  Cherish your parents. Time waits for no man. Take stock of your life and change your attitude if need be.  Live fully.  Live honestly.  Happiness cannot reside where integrity ceases to exist.  Live in your truth.  Move forward and don't look back.  If you do these things you will invite contentment into your world.   Karen
