I cannot get over losing my beloved daughter a year ago. How can I look forward again?
JANICE LEWIS, STOCKPORT, CHESHIRE
IT'S HARD TO imagine how devastating the loss of a daughter must be. Even with all the knowledge we have from reading and learning about the 'afterlife', we still suffer immense grief which is very real and hard to bear. we all deal with it, or not, in our own ways.
If grief is accompanied by depression and loneliness, it is not at all surprising that you feel the way you do. I don't want to say anything that may seem trite but I certainly understand despair, and loss, and can empathise with your pain. I know from experience that once we descend into what the spiritual masters and mystics call a 'dark night of the soul' the only way back is to follow that tiny chink of light which gets stronger and brighter the more you trust it.
Call in your mind, or out loud, to the Archangels, and ask Gabriel to shine that light for you, showing you the way ahead clearly. Call on Raphael to heal your grief, and Michael to protect you and give you the courage to face the future. Ask them to bring practical helpful people into your life, and try to be open, if you can, to any and all possibilities.
The archangels can help heal and support grieving souls
