A touching book that will help heal your grieving heart
on September 30, 2011
This book is a must-read for anyone who is struggling with the loss of a loved one- pets included!
As a lawyer and a spirit medium, Mark may seem like quite the contradiction, yet that's the beauty of this combination and what is so refreshing about this book. Although he grew up around his psychic parents, the lawyer in him required some kind of proof, so for a large portion of his life he wasn't totally in acceptance of his own ability. It took an amazing experience (which he shares in the book) after his mother's passing to prove to him that this was real. She brought him an important message: "let go of the sorrow, but hold onto the love." This is Mark's mission- to help others heal from the heavy burden of grief, which he does in his work as a medium and speaker.
Whatever issues with grief you're going through, from feeling guilty that your last words to someone were angry or hurtful, to losing someone as a result of suicide, Mark guides us through individual grief experiences from a number of readings with real clients- people just like you. Through sharing these readings, Mark is not only able to share with us the insights and messages from the Other Side, but also to help us see that we are not alone in our struggle with losing a loved one.
In chapter 4 "How Spirits Contact Us," Mark helps us to understand how our loved ones are still in our lives, reassuring us and helping us through our daily struggles. He talks about things like coming home to find a photo album laying open to a particular photo of a loved one, or hearing a song on the radio that reminds you of your loved one just as you were thinking about him or her. So many of us have these experiences but write them off as wishful thinking-- not so! It's wonderful to know that we're never alone and we don't really die. I highly recommend this book to you, and hope you will share it with others as well!
