Reflections on Ineffable Love: from loss through grief to joy
Love Is Stronger Than Death
While I navigated the rough waters of grief after the passing of my husband and twin flame, Stephen, many experiences proved to me that love is not only stronger than death, love transcends death.
In the midst of the worst event of my life, I made an amazing discovery. Although Stephen was no longer alive on earth, our souls could communicate through the veil separating this world and the next.
More than thirteen years after my beloved lifted off for other realms, our sacred love tryst grows stronger every day. Through inspirational stories, meditations and poetry, I am grateful to offer you my reflections on this unique path we are blessed to walk.
For I have come to know that…
loss is for our learning,
grief is for our transformation, and joy is eager to bring us Home
to our soul, our twin flame and our True Self.
