TRANSFORMATION: ESSAYS ON LOVE, HEALING AND WATER

Post by ATouchofHeart on July 11th 2013, 10:05 pm

Here is a book I helped edit in 2009.
I've attached a full version of the book in PDF format.
Along with a jpg of the cover.


TRANSFORMATION
ESSAYS ON LOVE, HEALING AND WATER



There are 15 authors - (thought there were more)
I've never edited a book in my entire life and you have to read and re-read over and over and over all the chapters; making sense out of them.

Seemed odd at the time (just opened up to spirituality 2 weeks prior with that first event reading) to be asked to edit a book then write a chapter for it. But now I realize that it was spirit driven intention; preparing me for my own books. Wink


The publisher Raul Rosales is a Spiritual Medium I had first met in 2004 up the mountain at a psychic shop. He gave me a half hr reading then and it was cassette taped. After going to a Casino event Jun 27th 2009 where James Van Praagh was appearing at (famous Medium and with a TV show and series "Ghost Whisper") he brought through 8 of my deceased relatives and I was so excited that I had to have another reading.  So I decided to listen to saved cassettes of readings I'd had in the past and found Raul's had a lot of things that had come true. I spent a couple days searching for him. We book a 2 hr session at my house just before July 09.

During my reading; near the end he said he had a group of people writing chapters for a book he wanted to publish and would I be interested in helping him edit the book. After I got over the shock I said "You want me to edit a book" I had never edited anything before but was up to trying.

Editors: Connie and Roy read one chapter each for me. West was the main Editor and a professional one but had to leave out of the country on a family emergency so even though I was asked to 'help'. I had to edit the whole book. It's only 145 page but it seemed like a whole volume.

Near the end Connie thought I should write a chapter also and suggested it to Raul.
Raul asked me to and my story is titled:
Grief: From Spirit with Love – Deborah Mathews

There are three sections to the book.

Part 1: Love and Consciousness

The Power That Circulates Within Us – Al Diaz

Here is my chapter for those who are unable to download it.


GRIEF: FROM SPIRIT WITH LOVE
DEBORAH MATHEWS


The five steps of grief; denial, anger, bargaining, depression and acceptance are all important parts of healing. They encompass our senses of sight, sound, taste, touch and smell, in the name of survival. They are all intertwined and emotionally different to everyone.

Being born into the world to experience life’s lessons of abandonment and loss is not what everyone would imagine to be a fulfilling life. I share my personal experience with you so that you may someday understand that your lessons in life are part of your soul’s growth, beautifully orchestrated with love from spirit. This is my journey from who I was to who I became spiritually.

I was born to an unwed mother who in her time did what she felt in her heart was best for me. I was given up for adoption three days into life with no bonding, no sight of my mother, no sounds of her loving voice, no taste of nourishment, no touch of her arms against my pale skin, and no smell of her wondrous being. As I lay in the clear plastic bassinet marked “Baby Oberlander,” the senses of life were not to be had. “I did not want to hold you, if I did, I may not have been able to give you up” were the words that bonded the past to the present during our first conversation after my long five-day, seventy-five hour search at age thirty-four.

I journeyed through a wonderful life with my adopted parents who had waited nine long years. They were forty-six years my senior, but age did not matter until I lost them when I was twenty-six and thirty-seven respectively. My world fell apart abruptly on the day I was to deliver my first child, October 14, 1979. “I’m on the way to the hospital Mom and Dad, I’ll call you after the baby’s born,” I explained. Five hours later I called my parents and I said, “It’s a girl Dad, can I talk to Mom too?” There was silence on the phone and I asked what was wrong. His response was, ”Your mother had a massive stroke today.”

I was scheduled to go into the hospital at 8:00 am; amd mom had her stroke just hours after our exchanging goodbyes. She was only able to hold her new grandchild once in five months. Mom passed on St. Patrick’s Day in 1980, and I remember her talking with her father in spirit for a whole week prior to her day of departure as a means of preparing herself for the journey home.

Two years later, I found my father on the floor of his bathroom, stricken with a massive stroke and lying helplessly for six hours. Life again changed dramatically when I decided to move from my home, along with my husband and two children, to care for my father. That period of my life was difficult as my father’s personality changed because he thought the world did him injustice. His looks changed, his voice was harsh and blaming, and his touch was distant. I lost my father in 1991 to vascular disease.

In 1985, I developed a ruptured cyst on one of my ovaries that turned into gangrene and looked as if I were ready to deliver a child. I died twice on the table and, while in college in 1998, my deceased mother came twice to me in dreams. Once to show me that she was there (while I was flat-lined) and to give me a spiritual hug of energy that brought me back to life. The second time was to tell me, “Deborah, I want you to know that you have an older brother named Michael.” She mentioned his last name but the shock woke me so fast that I could not remember it. This message was validated for me when I attended a James Van Praagh event June 2009 and Michael was standing next to me.

My life went on and my need to help continued as I cared for both of my husband’s parents, who were becoming ill. I cooked all their meals and ran their errands. I lost my mother-in-law to cancer in 1992 and continued to care for my father-in-law. Due to circumstances within the family, I went to work in September 1996. Life was routine until February 28, 1997, when I received a call that dimmed my eye. The message was, “Hurry home, Tommy’s been in an accident and the paramedics are on the way.” My fifteen-year-old quad rider was rear ended by his friend in front of our driveway, tossing his head into the asphalt. When I arrived home, he was holding his head and moaning uncontrollably. We were in the E.R. room with him, waiting for cat scans, when I had to leave the room for a second. I returned to find him miraculously recovered. How could that be? He was experiencing brain trauma just minutes before and the E.R. doctors said it was serious. Obviously, February 1997 was not his time.

August 25, 1997 was a typical day—sunny skies and my heart filled with memories of love for family and life. As I drove home from work at dusk, I saw a huge glowing white owl flying at the left of my car. The owl was just looking at me as it followed me up the road for a ways, then it disappeared. Later that night (about 9:00 p.m.) before going to bed, my son asked me to take him to the gas station to fill up his bike with gas. I told him that it could wait until the morning. I felt an enormous need to retire for the night even though I was a night owl. Some time later, my husband fell asleep on the couch watching television and my son went to bed. My daughter was babysitting down the street for a friend and I slumbered without dreams until I was awakened by the sounds of fists on my window. I then heard, “Wake up Debbie, Wake up! The boys have been in a terrible accident!” The lights were out and I stumbled through the house in the dark, reaching the living room where the sight of headlights pierced through the windows of the early morning. It did not cross my mind that I was the only one in the house.

It felt like déjà vu or like a walking dream until I heard my son’s voice, “Don’t hurry Mom, I was gone by 3:35.”

The sounds of his voice somehow comforted me after just hearing that the “boys” were in a terrible accident. I slowly drove down to the crash site in a bewildering way. The crash was two blocks from our home and, as I came up to the street, the Sheriff’s Department stopped me and instructed me to drive around the block because the electric pole was alive and blocking the road. My sight was filled with emergency vehicles, flashing lights, and the sounds of distant mutters and groans. I was trying to get to the actual crash location, which was just past a Monte Carlo that had crashed into a telephone pole, but the police kept me at bay.

Spirit must have prepared me for this because the location of my husband was not even a concern when I woke—although somehow I knew he was out of the house. My husband woke before me as a result of the noise of the crash and of the motorcycle winding down as it skidded 500 feet past impact. The lights were out and he stumbled through the dark house to make sure his son was still in bed, but the pillows were carefully placed under the blankets to fool him. He took off to investigate the crash before I woke up.

Finally, through the dew of the early morning, I got sight of my husband’s silhouette walking through the darkness and I yelled to the officers, “There is my husband, let me through!” The anticipated wait for my husband had past and we met just beyond the Monte Carlo that was carefully blocking the sights of death, the sounds of pain, the smells of gas, and the touch of oneness that once was. For a moment, we stared at the lifeless body of my son who was lying on his back so peacefully—no movement or sounds were coming from his body. My husband was frozen with grief and he could not approach Tommy’s body, but I had to see and touch him in order to understand what had happened.

FIRST STAGE OF GRIEF: DENIAL
“Everything’s fine.” "This isn’t happening to me." Not accepting or even acknowledging the loss.

Denial is usually a temporary stage for the individual. This feeling is generally replaced with a heightened awareness of a situation or of other people.

The sight of my son stretched out so peacefully makes me hope that he is just unconscious because there is no blood in sight. The denial of reality guides me to touch his torn pants and I feel his broken bones protruding through his skin above both knees, resulting from the car hitting him head on at 90 mph. My hands carefully move up his body to his collarbone that is detached from his frame. I grasp his head to comfort his lifeless body and to understand that what I see and touch is not life. Reality hits me as I try to lift his head and it falls back to the pavement like a brick as a result of his seventh vertebra having been broken when the Monte Carlo swerved into a telephone pole. The sudden impact tosses him up to the top of the pole that breaks his clavicle and pierces his heart. A graphic explanation, but sometimes we leave our bodies prior to death. Part of my healing was to understand every aspect of the crash. For him not to lose any blood from the first impact, I surmised that the soul had left the body prior to the trauma. I remember him telling me after his E.R. incident (when I was scolding him for not having his helmet on), “Mom, if I die I won’t come back as a vegetable”.

SECOND STAGE OF GRIEF: ANGER
"Why me?” “Who can I blame?” “This is not fair!” The second stage begins after realizing that denial cannot continue—reality hits you and you come to the realization that the situation cannot be denied. Feelings of anger at the deceased and putting blame on them for leaving. and even suicidal thoughts

I start yelling at my son, “I told you this would happen”! My husband is crying and I am yelling with emotions that engulf my being unlike anything I had ever experienced in my life. My daughter drives down to the scene and says; “Is that Tommy lying at the side of the road”? I said, “Yes.” The sound of her screams I will never forget. Typically there are five stages of grief but please understand that not everyone experiences them in the same order. Losing a child was far more difficult than losing a parent or a spouse.

THIRD STAGE OF GRIEF: BARGAINING

“I’ll do anything for a few more years with them.” This can take place before a loss or during the realization that the situation is indeed a reality. In hopes that the individual can somehow postpone or delay the death, negotiations for extending the life manifest through bargaining and praying for the loved one to come back to life.

Bargaining and anger were in opposing stages for me. I was past the Denial, Bargaining and Anger stages within five hours after the crash, which is not typical for the grieving process. Since the crash occurred at 3:35 a.m., what follows was the longest day of my life. I was numb, my stomach felt like a ship’s rope tied in many knots. I could not eat and my brain was tired from lack of sleep. I was also trying to console my husband who was much worse off emotionally. All during the day, we would see lights flickering, receive phone calls with no one on the other end, and get glimpses of shadows in the hallway. Something was wrong. Was this Tommy trying to get our attention? We continued receiving contacts from Tommy for two months. I had to try to fix this situation because the grief my husband was experiencing was just too much for him.

FOURTH STAGE OF GRIEF: DEPRESSION
“I miss my child/loved one.” “What’s there to live for.” “I can’t go on.” Overwhelming feelings of hopelessness, frustration and bitterness, self pity, and mourning the loss of a person as well as the hopes and dreams for the future. Lack of control, numb feeling of existence, and even suicidal thoughts. This process is a necessary step in the grieving process and the person can become quiet, refuse to talk to others, and do a lot of crying and grieving for the lost loved one. Let it happen.

During the typical Depression stage, I never felt life could not go on. I had no self-pity or bitterness, not even for the one who killed my son. I was just frustrated and confused. I felt I needed to do something. I was stressing about the fact that my son was still hanging around two months after the crash. Some may feel comfort in this contact, but I wanted to know that he was where he should be—in heaven, the spirit world, with God and my mother and father. I was so frustrated about the fact that I was unable to do anything. I called a psychic on a 900 line and asked her to help me assist my son in crossing. She gave me these instructions on what to do, “He hears you, just talk to him”. I talked to my husband and we both agreed to do what she suggested. We went to bed and I proceeded with the prayers and request. “Tommy, we love you very much and we miss you terribly, but we are praying that you please find your way into the light, your Dad and I will be fine,” I prayed. To my amazement, the prayers worked quickly, if not instantly. There was peace in my heart the next day and I knew, without a doubt, that he had finally listened to his mother.

My husband told me that Tommy shared with him that he felt he was going to die. Then I remembered a dream I had a few years before. I was driving a car and I ran over my son while he was standing in the middle of the road. A few weeks before the crash, Tommy went to town with me and, as soon as we got onto the freeway, he had a panic attack and said “Mom, take me home I can’t be in this car”. I wonder if that was the moment he realized he was going to leave this world.

FIFTH STAGE OF GRIEF: ACCEPTANCE
“It will be okay.” “I can’t fight this any longer, it’s a reality and I might as well prepare myself for the future.” This is the final stage of grief and it comes with peace and the understanding of the death. Acceptance is different; you have to accept the loss rather than resign to it, or bear it, or just deal with it. Accepting that the person is gone and it was not your fault—they did not leave you on purpose.

My soul was hungry for spiritual growth. I bought all of Sylvia Browne’s older booklets to read and had a half hour with her on the phone. I read Rosemary Altea’s Eagle and the Rose and Proud Spirit. Another spiritual validation occurred when I read in Rosemary’s book that she assisted a woman with cancer to cross into the light. As I read her story, I recalled a personal experience in one of my dreams. It was the same tunnel scenario as in Rosemary’s story.  I was going through a tunnel and then shot through and landed gently in a beautiful ballroom. At that moment, everyone sitting in a chair facing outwards from a circle; stood up. They were waiting for me. My mind was soaking in all the spiritual validations of life continuing after death, thus giving Tommy’s death spiritual meaning.

Two months after Tommy’s passing and my getting through the grief stage of acceptance, I signed up for a college course in graphic computer arts. My English composition professor assigned us the task of writing a poem. I had never written a poem in my life, but I was now faced with putting my loss into words through poetry. My first poem, written automatically through my son in spirit, was followed by a 3,000-word poem about the crash that I scribbled on paper during my daily drive to college for three weeks. An eighteen-month course was cut short six weeks due to my husband’s becoming ill and losing forty pounds in six months. Tom passed from melanoma eighteen months after our son died. He had several visions of Tommy prior to his passing. Again, the owl showed itself to me the night before my husband passed, and later guided me through my life in a dream. My daughter was expecting her first child and I was now the bread winner, increasing my work hours back to forty.

I had a grandson arriving that needed love and who was a special soul that my husband saw sitting next to him in spirit prior to his passing. Tom has blessed me many times in dreams and the hug was the best.

With all the grief and pain that comes with loss, find in your heart the good that can come out of it all. Achieving personal growth from a loss is so important to understanding what life is about and understanding our lessons. Keep the wonderful memories of your deceased loved one within your heart and know that life has purpose in all its entanglements. Find deep within yourself the comfort and healing that you rightfully deserve and know that they hear every thought.

The best advice I can offer someone going through the grief of loss is to first understand that every life experience (positive or negative) is growth for your soul. You came into this life to survive and learn from every lesson. Know that your deceased loved ones, angels, spirit guides and especially God are always by your side giving support, love and healing. It is imperative that you get your feeling on paper through journal or poetry. By opening your heart to spirit and receiving love from spirit, you will find peace within.

Read everything you can on spirituality and keep what resonates within your being—leave the rest. Talk to others who have gone through the same experience. Know that we are coming into a time of awakening and your experiences are testing your spirituality and connecting you to who you are and have always been.

By embracing all of the representations of grief, one can conclusively find the peace within one’s heart. Spiritually, losing a loved one, accepting and understanding all that has presented itself to you are precious gifts of love meant for your highest good. Embrace the grief process and release it with love. May you be blessed in your journey through life.

Dear Deb,
Just finished reading the book a short while ago.I liked it very much.
When reading it I was amazed at the variety of means people employ
to transform themselves.It is an unusual book in its mix of subjects.
All of which were new to me.
I found myself wanting to  actually  to ask the various authors and authoresses
to what place(spiritually or psychologically) have their various disciplines  taken them or was taking them.
So can I ask you that question?
Where do you think you are now and can you see a way ahead for you?
Thank you for sending me the pdf.

Hi Stephen,

You can ask the authors themselves if you like. They are contactable through my website or theirs.

I'll get you some links over the weekend. I have not keep up on my website much since going back to work. 

There are several influential people in that book. I am grateful for being given the opportunity to help with it. 

for me.......I'm tired right now - 4hrs sleep last night and it's 11pm right now. I thing I'll answer tomorrow. My head hurts. 

But I will answer tomorrow. 
Actually took the day off tomorrow.

Tell us about yourself : I’m a widow; I lost my spouse April 16, 1999 to a broken heart and Cancer. He was a Native American. I have lived on his Reservation in California for 37 years. We were married 23 years. We had two children, lost one to a drunk driver in 97 before my spouse died. I started my spiritual journey when son passed; but woke up to spirituality abruptly June 2009 when I had an event reading by James Van Praagh and he brought through eight deceased relatives. I would love to be a medium in the future, and share that spiritual connection with those who have lost. I take photos of spirits in clouds. One of my favorite spirit photographs at night is an apparition of a Native American Male.

Hi Stephen, 

Not sure why the white boxes on the author page are white but they do work. Maybe they don't show up white on your end. I have refreshed them all with same links and should work. 

You can link to each author's page and contact them there if you like. 

Where am I now? I feel that I am helping others at work with spirituality for sure. Those not connected before have been placed in my path. 

As for myself; I'm at a standstill with meditating and reading. Been working too much. 

I do have to say that a young girl who has been in and out of hospitals with depression/suicide for some time with no help has come across my path. I know her mother but not the daughter who is depressed. Her mother told me about it and cannot control her depression. Hospitals just hold her for a short time and release. Never met the girl but I've shared some things spiritually with mom (want mom to read first then share with her daughter but she never does) and when mom get's around to it she gives it to her daughter. I also gave daughter a small dream catcher last week with the meaning behind it. To help her with possible nightmares. I really wanted to talk to her but mom kept her at bay. Until last week. She came up to me and said since giving her daughter all the things I sent to her she wants to meet me. Mom said her daughter wants to know more and that she has not seen her this excited in a long time. We are going to meet next week. 

I'm putting something together for her that explains the chakras and her heart chakra that could be blocked. I'm going to suggest that if she can; to get down see a chakra healer in a town close by. I've been gathering all my files on chakras today and want to present her with something she can have visually including positive affirmations and sayings to lift her. I'm also giving her some soft relaxing music. I think I've shared it here before (Musical Rapture MP3) google it and it is a free download online.

Dear Deb,
I will check in the pdf I have about addresses.
Thanks.
Yes work can sometimes seem to put a stop
to somethings.This is possibly a bit illusionary as I
have always felt what we earn inside should be taken out
and used in the world around us.
This you certainly are doing.I do hope you can help the young girl.
The understanding that our lives are meaningful is such a
powerful lesson.
I hope you are holding up ok from the pressure of work.
Look after yourself
Stephen

The publisher of our book was hoping to have Dr. Masaru Emoto could write a chapter for the book but he was too busy. He said next time he would. 

Here's a bit about him.
