Bereavement opens into spiritual awareness in several ways. It reminds those of us left behind that our time to cross the great divide will also arrive someday. Messages from our body through kinesiology can also help us find inner guidance to work through our hurts, angers, guilts and return to a normal existence that doesn’t include the departed.
The body is a vehicle for rich lessons in life. When we listen to what it is saying, we can move into deeper connections with the All.
Conversely, when we are connected with our bodies and with higher dimensions of awareness, we can better understand and deal with the physical challenges our bodies face.
