Healing: Living, Dying and Near-Death

Last year one of my clients made her transition from this world. I received this text from one of her many friends the night before I was scheduled to see her:

“I’m sorry to text you in the middle of the night, but I wanted to let you know _______ passed away tonight. Thank you for working with her. The results of your healings were one of the few things we all saw that gave her peace and relief in the last month.”

At the start of most of our sessions, my client would be in quite a bit of pain (about a seven on a scale of one to ten). After the healing, she would be completely ‘pain-free’ (her words), sitting upright and breathing much easier.

She also said she felt much more peaceful and she looked so much brighter after the sessions. She talked about what was on her mind, her current process of healing, her wonderful friends, and her dealings with the medical culture. I didn’t say much, but I held a grounded space for her to express what needed to be said.

I was not with her in the last week, but when I saw her in the months before, she talked a lot about how she did not want to die.  Not because she was afraid of death, but because she loved life so much. She spoke of her garden, art that inspired her, and places she wanted to visit.  It was such a gift to get to know her.  Her love of life was inspiring.

It took me a while to process my own thoughts about death, healing, and this great mystery of life after this incredible woman made her transition. I have been writing and rewriting this post for a long time.

She left a space in my consciousness that I needed to explore. I ended up watching a lot of near-death YouTube videos that basically told the same story over and over. This one was my favorite:

I am so grateful. Every session in my healing practice is such a gift.

  1. That was a wonderful YouTube. Thanks, Jerri for sending. I have forwarded to a few that I thought it would help.

  2. Hi Jeri!
    I too watch a lot of NDE videos and also love the one you linked to. My father passed away this in March and today is/was his birthday. Your post really touched my heart. I hope you are doing well. 🌹💗🌺
