      Hi all,  I'm sure you've noticed some changes in the forums. We've again had to do some updates, so that's why things may look a little different. Nothing major should have changed.  Also, we are going to start adding advertisements sensitive to our community on the boards. This is something we are experimenting with, and we will certainly make sure they are in the best interests of everyone. We want to make sure our forums continue to stay accessible and cost free to all of our members, and this is a way to ensure this.  If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to privately message me or email me at Konnie@beyondindigo.com.  As always, we will be here with you, ModKonnie

  1. When my mom was still alive, she believed with all her heart that she wanted to go be with the Lord. She loved him dearly. Seeing as we came from a Jewish family, I was brought up with 2 very different belief systems and so in the end, I chose to believe in Taoism. But not heavily into it at all. Just read the book and tried to follow a simple path. Then my mom passed away and I didn't want to live anymore. I got very sick about a month or so later. Drs said I was run down and the antibiotics could only take me so far. I needed to want to live and honestly, I didn't. That morning, my breathing was very laboured, I was on my way out and peacefully (I didn't have any pain) when I went to a place that was all white with figures in the background. And I kept hearing "it's not your time yet, it's not your time, it's not your time yet, it's not your time". It sounded female and beautiful. It touched my heart and I made a decision that I would fight. So I did. I recovered. 3 years have passed now and I still wish that I had just let go on that morning and gone to my mom. I need to believe that I will see her again. I have heard a lot of spiritual people who say that when there is a great loss or great hardships, people tend to flow towards spirituality and awakenings and I believe that to be true because of where I am at with my beliefs now. Anyone else with similar experiences?

    Lily was born and my longest cherished dream came true. I held in my arms a beautiful little being who felt like my soulmate. She didn't need to speak a word, I just felt we had known each other for a long time and she felt like the missing piece to my existence. I had a difficult labour with so many complications that I distinctly remember thinking to myself "It's OK, I believe in reincarnation, I believe in heaven, it'll be OK if I die!" For the first two weeks my husband looked after Lily as I was too sick to sit up. When I finally came right, instead of being overjoyed with my little bundle of love, I got very depressed. I had an over-riding thought that would not leave my mind. I couldn't stop crying day or night. I had to leave the light on when I slept as I needed company. My overwhelming sadness was caused by this single thought - "One day I won't have Lily". It was only after speaking to my brother three weeks later and reinforcing my beliefs in the bigger picture of our souls that I released this fear. Psychologists could argue that I just had post-natal depression. But I know in my heart that Lily and I had a plan (for our souls' greater expansion) that we decided on before both of our births, and as soon as she was born I had been reminded of this plan. She had her own reasons too of course but I believe our greater goal was to be able to share this experience and help others heal which gives my whole experience a purpose rather than it being a tragic random event. My determination to stay connected with my little soulmate would be the motivation for me to tune into my intuition and feel her with me and say to others who are grieving: "Hey, yes your loved one has gone physically but he/she is still with you in essence as real as before, your bond of love is still as real as before and you too have a grand heroic master plan that will reveal itself to you if it hasn't already. Everything is going to be OK".

  4. Turning Grief into Grace

    I've lost three family members within the past year and never prepared myself to fall into this abyss. After participating in local bereavement groups, a friend told me about a cruise in November that is just for those who lost loved ones and I signed on. It's called "turning grief into grace" and I am praying this will help me get beyond this pain and be able to function. It's strange, I know, combining a cruise with grief workshops, but at this point I'll try anything. Edy Nathan is the grief expert. I've seen her on television on A & E.

    I will never forget the first time I heard Lily sing. She was around 18 months old and sitting in her car seat behind me as we drove home. Josh Grobin’s “You raise me up”, came on the radio and it was so inspiring that Lily felt compelled to sing along with the golden voice of an angel. I remember having a little tear in my eye at the time. I was so proud and honoured to have such a treasure to call my own daughter; a soul so pure and beautiful. Three weeks after Lily died, we visited my brother and were at his girlfriend’s family home when the same Josh Grobin song came on the radio. I had been being as cheery as possible with all these lovely people I was spending time with and concentrating on feeling Lily in spirit alongside me. But this song came on and I simply could not contain my emotion. I cried, I balled, I wailed, right in front of a room full of people which quickly became silent except for my hysterical crying. There was no consoling me. The looks of shock and helplessness on these friends faces is permanently etched in my mind. They simply had no idea of the sheer desperation and utter emptiness I felt without my precious Lily with me. At that point I realised, yes I am spiritual but I am also human and the human heart is a deep and vast place. If you feel like wailing do it. Don’t try to hide from the tears, they are cleansing and can wash away the sadness leaving you refreshed and able to take a few more steps forward towards healing. So I’d like to say “Here’s to you my lovely Lily. You raise me up every day, in my attempts to feel you with me as I know you are. You raise me up in the stories I share in my desire to ease other’s grief in honour of you. You raise me up in my determination to make something meaningful from my loss. And my darling Lily you raise me up in my expectation of seeing you again when I am finished with this beautiful life.” "You Raise Me Up" by Josh Grobin When I am down and, oh my soul, so weary; When troubles come and my heart burdened be; Then, I am still and wait here in the silence, Until you come and sit awhile with me. You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains; You raise me up, to walk on stormy seas; I am strong, when I am on your shoulders; You raise me up... To more than I can be. You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains; You raise me up, to walk on stormy seas; I am strong, when I am on your shoulders; You raise me up... To more than I can be. There is no life - no life without its hunger; Each restless heart beats so imperfectly; But when you come and I am filled with wonder, Sometimes, I think I glimpse eternity. You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains; You raise me up, to walk on stormy seas; I am strong, when I am on your shoulders; You raise me up... To more than I can be. You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains; You raise me up, to walk on stormy seas; I am strong, when I am on your shoulders; You raise me up... To more than I can be. You raise me up... To more than I can be.
