"Time won't heal YOUR broken heart."

“Time won’t heal YOUR broken heart.”

Dear Anthony,

While I have never been a huge fan of Anne Murray the artist, my mother, who has just earned her wings was. This song keeps coming on the radio “Broken Hearted Me”, again I have never been a fan so I don’t know the song, but I found myself drawn to it, listening to the words very intently; but by the time I realize it’s on it over.

Since I had my medium reading with you, that was absolutely amazing, from her coming through saying I was right she should have turned up her oxygen, to the fact that she had diabetes, the fact that she was married to a gangster (my father), and of course that she is OK. At the end, you told me that she said she had to go, Jesus was calling her … it was that part of the reading that had made me realize she was going on … going on without me.

Now, I know it’s selfish, but I couldn’t help but feel like I was saying goodbye AGAIN, something I never ever felt ok with so to speak. Yet here I was knowing you were in direct contact with her, and she was OK with it. Listen, my mother and I were always a team, so this wasn’t something I would have expected – our separation, and her being OK with it. I would be lying if I said that didn’t bother me.

Anyway, back to this song that keeps playing that I have never heard, but again by an artist that I know she adored. Finally tonight I looked up the song and lyrics, the part that has me thinking this song is a visit from Heaven, goes “…when you hear this song I hope that you will see that time won’t heal a broken-hearted me.” Is this in my head or a legit visit from my mother. Could I have mistaken her message crossing over to the spirit world wrong?  Is it possible that she is just as broken-hearted as I am and this is her way of letting me know???

Something is telling me yes, and that she is where she belongs now, and I am to go on with all her love encapsulated within until we meet again, to appreciate the time we had, and build on the strengths she left me, not the weakness’ that she NEVER condoned even in the end.

What do you think?

Dear Lisa,

I try to make it clear to people who receive readings from me that it cannot take away your grief, and they’re not meant to.  A reading helps you understand that “death is not the end of life, love, or relationships,” that your loved one hasn’t left you and that you are never alone.

Having said that, I’m sure you’ve heard the saying, “You can’t take it with you when you die.” Well, love is the only thing that the souls bring with them to the hereafter. Love is even more powerful than death, and all the love you shared with her is returned back to you from the Other Side.

Now that she is where she is, she can see straight into your heart, and all the love that you have for her. Not only that but she’s able to be with you in the dark moments you miss her the most, feeling all alone. Because of that, she doesn’t feel the same pain of separation you do.

The reason you may be hearing this song so often, and why it may be a visit or a sign from your mother is that she also understands that a part of your journey and lessons during this time is to endure the pain of her passing. She cannot take away the pain you’re feeling because you’re supposed to learn, during this time, to learn to love again, and to find hope and peace while you’re suffering her loss. What she can do is help you find hope and a reason to keep going while you’re still here.

That could be the meaning behind the words, “…when you hear this song I hope that you will see that time won’t heal a broken-hearted me.” She’s letting you know that grief will be a part of who you are until you’re reunited with your mother again, on the Other Side.

To her, it will seem like a blink of an eye until she sees you again. For you, it’s day after day, of putting one foot in front of the other, until the time you earn the same love, joy, and peace that she is experiencing in her new home.

It might help you to think of her love for you as a beacon of light leading you back to her when your work here is done. In the meantime, until that glorious day comes, please know that she continues to walk with you, sharing in your joy and pain, helping you help yourself until you see her again. You are not alone, you are still a team, and you’ll never be without her, no matter how much it feels as though you are.
