3 Top Reasons Why A Spiritual Practice Serving Those Who Have Died Is Important

Hello Brave One,

A question that I frequently get asked is: why is it important to be of service to our loved ones who have died?

It is always important to know the ‘why’ behind what we do. Especially when it comes to your spiritual practice. In today’s video I will give you three reasons why it is important to include veil work, service to your loved one, in your spiritual practice.

Be brave. Even though there is a common belief that when our loved one dies they do their thing in the spiritual world and we do our thing in the physical world, now is the time in our spiritual evolution to lift the veil, include veil work in our spiritual practice, so that we may cultivate conscious, creative, living relationships with loved ones who have died.

After you watch the video, in the comment section below, I would love to hear why you think it is important to include veil work, being in service to your loved one who has died. Also, please ask me any specific questions that I could answer for you.

If you like this video then please give it a ‘like’ and share it with a friend who has lost a loved one or who has a spiritual practice.

Verse, Poem, or Prayer for Your Spiritual Reading Practice

Dear Brave One,

How are you doing with your daily practice of reading spiritual materials to your loved one? A question I frequently get asked is: What verse, poem, or prayer should I open my spiritual reading practice with?

Whatever verse, poem, or poetry you choose you want it to contain specific elements which I will share in a moment. But first here are some practical ideas: choose a verse, poem, or prayer that was a favorite of your loved one, choose one of your favorites, or feel free to use the verse that I used way back In 1997 when I started reading to my daughter and other loved ones:
I gaze upon thee
In the spiritual world
In which thou art.May my love mitigate thy warmth,
May my love mitigate thy cold,
May it reach out to thee and help thee
To find thy way
Through spirit darkness
To spirit light.Upward to thee strive the love of my soul,
Upward to thee flow the stream of my love!
May they sustain thee,
May they enfold thee,
In heights of Hope
In spheres of Love.
– Rudolf Steiner (1861-1925)

Today, I utilize many different verses, poems and prayers however this verse still holds a special place in my heart and highly recommend it for opening your spiritual practice of reading several reasons. This verse immediately starts to create a bridge to the deceased using images that are evoked through the words contained within the verse. Also notice when you speak the verse how your heart starts to soften. This is what we strive for when we communicate with our loved ones — strong mental images and a heart that is open and soft; filled with loved and devotion towards them.

What verse, prayer or poem did you choose to open your reading practice with? I would love to hear from you. Post your verse below along with any comments or feel free to message or email me privately.

Stay brave and true to yourself on this path. Many will tell you to ‘move on’ with your life. Easing Grief is not about ‘moving on.’ Now is the time in the world’s spiritual evolution to have a conscious living relationship to those who have died. It is all about service and love.

Invite COLOR Into Your Spiritual Practice

Shortly after establishing my spiritual reading practice with my loved ones who had died, I received an impulse to pick up one of my daughter’s crayons and to color. The sound of the crayon across the paper was quite soothing and is still fresh in my memory.

My soul, my feeling life, became quite numb after my daughter’s death. Developing a spiritual relationship with color invited a kind of movement into my soul. And I also found the more I studied and experienced the spiritual nature of colors my relationship with my loved ones developed in a new way. Looking back it was another doorway which opened expanding my capacity to communicate with them. I know the impulse to explore color was a gift from them. Somehow they knew how much my soul would be nourished by color and the exploration of colors was an activity that we could participate in together.

Additionally it is helpful to know that the spiritual beings, particularly the Third Hierarchy – the Archai, Archangels, and Angels, are connected to color and your interest in color delights this spiritual hierarchy, as well as, your loved ones.

It is easy to start to cultivate this relationship to color. Begin to notice color in your life: in the clouds at sunrise or sunset, the flowers in your garden, or the eyes of your friend or lover. Where does color catch your attention? Check in and notice how you feel towards all the different colors that come to meet you in this day. How do these colors move your soul?

In the Easing Grief Home Study Program I speak to the specific colors and offer color exercises that support creating a living relationship with those who have died.

Now is the time in our evolution to develop a conscious, living relationship to our loved ones who have died. I hope you agree.

Grief. Doing it Alone.

My grief, up until now, has been a private affair for me.  When my daughter died over 17 years ago, I remember consciously choosing to stay away from grief groups and counselors.

With the current social trend to sharing everything about oneself with others either through communities, groups that have a common interest, or through social networks, it almost feels like one is weird if they want to grieve by themselves.

I guess, part of what this blog post is about is that I stand for those who, like myself, want to grieve by themselves. That one is not weird to want to grieve in private.  And that it can actually be an effective path of grieving that is rich and healing.

The reasons why I chose doing grief by myself are for several reasons. It reflects how I was raised as a child that one keeps personal things personal.  It also honors that part of my personality who is private.  I always felt that the death of one we love is such a sacred threshold that to talk about it with a person I barely know feels disrespectful to my loved who has died and the actual spiritual event of the death.

I was fortunate that I have had tools to self-manage and navigate my way through my grief.  Six months prior to Lara’s death, I met Rudolf Steiner’s work.  Rudolf Steiner was a philosopher and scientist and the founder of Anthroposophy.  The word anthroposophy literally means wisdom of man.  Anthroposophy is not a religion but a philosophy.  Rudolf Steiner’s lectures and books resonated with my being an esoteric Christian who believes in reincarnation.  Steiner wrote extensively on how to cultivate a connection with one who has died and about what happens when one dies.  He quenched a thirst I had.

You can imagine after being private with my grief work for over 17 years how surprised and resistant I was when earlier this year I received the inspiration to create Easing Grief.  The project felt contrary to my inner need for this privacy and my core belief about keeping personal things personal.  Yet, when I received the inspiration I knew deep inside that this is important work to share.  On many levels this project has been a big stretch for me. To share the practices and results of this work while standing in my need to keep my personal life private.  It is a fine line between the two. My deepest desire is that I am pleasing God, my daughter and other loved ones who have died with this work. I am hoping that the Easing Grief program proves that to be true. I also hope that it helps the individual who has chosen the path of grieving on their own to ease their own grief by creating a living relation to their loved one who has died.


Here is an introduction to the Easing Grief Program. I invite you to watch it now.



It is the time in the world’s spiritual evolution to have a conscious living relationship to those who have died.  I hope you agree.
