Leaving this world


My 92 year old mom passed on April 28th. We were the closest of friends, lived together 50 years and I was her caregiver 24/7 for the past 5 years. In the weeks since her passing, many strange things have happened that are not physically possible around the house and garden. Is this a common thing when someone dies, and should I be doing some active daily prayer or ritual to contact or assist my mom on her journey of transition from this world to the next ?

Dear Tom,

We are sorry to hear of the loss of your mother, especially when you were so very close to each other for many years.

It is not unusual for a soul who is especially attached to a person or a place to be a bit confused and linger about in their astral bodies, when they should be moving away from this material world into the astral world.

Perhaps this is what is happening for your mother. If this is the case, then yes, it would be important for you to talk to her soul, via prayer and meditation.

Tell her sweetly and calmly that it is time for her to move on to her next sphere of learning and blessings. Let her know of your love and support, but don’t waver in yourself. Be strong and centered.

Don’t do this alone; always call on God and the great Masters to help you.

It would also be a good idea to contact the Ananda Healing Prayer Ministry, and we will add our prayers to yours in this matter.

And whether or not you have or have not had a memorial ceremony for her, still it might be a very good idea to have an Ananda Astral Ascension Ceremony done, either by yourself or an Ananda Minister. Please contact us for more information about how to do this.
