I have lost a few people and pets in my life, and I decided to read Your Life After Their Death to see if it offered any insight that may help me look at the loss differently. I have especially been struggling with the future loss of my pet. I don’t want to lose him! I thought maybe the book would help me view the expected loss in a different way. Did it? Not really. But it did help to strengthen some of my beliefs that have helped me deal with death.
In the first part of the book, Karen talks about things that I talk about on this blog. In fact, she discusses EFT, which is something I am learning about this month in great detail.
I have to say that while I was reading the first part of the book I forgot that I was reading a book about how to move on and enjoy life again after a loved one passes away; instead, I felt like I was reading a book about how to be more connected to yourself and the world around you with techniques like meditation and energy healing.
I’m not saying that she doesn’t discuss the techniques well – I’m just saying that it felt like it was more about self-improvement than it was about dealing with the loss of a loved one. But, I suppose that is what is needed in order to get back on your feet and face life with a healthier and happier mind.
In the second part she talks about how to connect with your loved ones and how they connect with you. There was nothing new for me in this section of the book. I am very into my dreams and paying attention to signs, so for me this was all this just reinforcement about what I already do.
She does do a section on raising your vibration so that you can be more in tune at getting messages from your deceased loves one. Basically she mentions a bunch of things about being healthy, such as staying away from sugar, drugs, or nicotine. I think the point was that the healthier you are, the happier you are, and the more you can stay on a high vibration to connect with loved ones.
I was excited to get to the part about the pets, but the section on communicating with your pets is pretty much a paragraph stating that it is the same as connecting with departed humans. This is something I could have figured out myself! I thought there was going to be some special technique, but I guess that’s my fault for expecting that!
There are some good stories, though, and the part about walk-ins was really interesting to me…and resonated with me.
All in all, I enjoyed the book and it was an easy read. There were some great stories in there about communicating and receiving signs with loved ones after their death. I also think that everything she mentioned in this book is very beneficial to having a happy mind and body – so it can definitely help you start to feel better if you take action on what she is talking about.
The truth is that Your Life After Their Death was not what I thought it was going to be, but I enjoyed it, and I would recommend it to someone trying to feel better after losing someone or a pet.
