Books to Bring Comfort to the Grieving and Dying

On Life after Death: Elisabeth Kubler-Ross, M.D.
This incredible book provides clear insight  as to what occurs to us once we shed the “cocoon” of our  physical body. I would recommend this gentle honest helper to anyone who has a true desire to learn the about this natural part of life.

In this collection of inspirational essays, internationally known author Dr.Elisabeth Kubler-Ross draws on her in-depth research of more than 20,000 people who had near-death experiences, revealing the afterlife as a return to wholeness of spirit. With frank and compassionate advice for those dealing with terminal illness or the death of a loved one, ON LIFE AFTER DEATH offers a compelling message of hope to the living, so that they may grow stronger from tragedy and live life to the fullest.

My Life after Death by Erik Medhaus
This book is a channeled work of a 20 year old spirit who took his life through suicide.  It provides a very clear and reassuring view as to the afterlife and the revelations it has for us.

Amazon description:
In the follow-up to Elisa Medhus’s My Son and the Afterlife—“a heartfelt, deeply moving story” (Eben Alexander, New York Times bestselling author of Proof of Heaven)—her son Erik tells his astounding story directly from the afterlife, describing in detail his death, transition, and spiritual renewal.

My Life After Death begins on the tragic day when Erik Medhus took his own life. What follows is a moment-by-moment account of the spiritual life he discovers on the other side—told for the very first time in his own words as channeled by medium Jamie Butler and then transcribed by his mother Elisa.

Overflowing with his signature honesty and candor, Erik describes more than just a visit to the afterlife. He personally walks us through the experience of dying, transitioning into spirit form, and reveals a detailed look at the life awaiting us on the other side.

In this intimate and provocative memoir, crucial questions will finally be answered, including: What does it feel like to die? What is it like to become a spirit? Why and how do spirits communicate with the living? Is there a heaven? Ultimately, Erik’s story provides the answers that will help readers find solace and remove the fears surrounding death, showing that love has no boundaries and life does not truly end.

Angels 101: An Introduction to connection working and healing with angels
Doreen Virtue
This is a lovely little book that is illustrated quite beautifully.  It is easily read, and is a great primer on learning about angels and their roles in our lives.  It identifies specific angelic beings by name and their particular focus or “specialty” in divine intervention.

Here is a helpful Amazon review on the book:
“Although God and the angels already know what you need, they can’t intervene without your permission. For this reason, you’ll need to ask your angels to give you their assistance.” – From the book

According to angel therapist Doreen Virtue, those who regularly contact their angels develop a closer relationship with God, as well as experience more peaceful, confident lives. Reporting increased happiness, those who connect with angels are less afraid of death and the future, largely because they feel watched over.

In her newest book Angels 101, Doreen introduces readers to different types of angels and the various ways to contact them. Angels respond to the “prayer of the heart”, she asserts, so merely thinking or visualizing your request is enough to set your angels in motion!

Explaining the historical role of these spiritual messengers and helpers, the author provides a fascinating tour of the angelic, including archangels, guardian angels, thrones, powers, cherubs, and more. Doreen highlights several spiritual systems who embrace angels, including Christianity, Kabbalah, Islam, and Judaism, and explains how angels can help protect, find lost objects, illuminate life purpose, heal relationships, provide guidance, and so on.

Arguably, the most intriguing part of Angels 101 is the electrifying anecdotes. I love the story of Doris, who was driving down the highway when her car’s hood flew up. She swerved down an embankment, stopping only inches from deep water. Twelve people witnessed the accident–and they all stopped to see how she was. They also inquired about the passenger that was in her front seat. However, Doris was traveling alone that day.

Or so she thought.

This 101-page book also provides:

* A FAQ section

* The meaning of colors and numbers as related to angels

* How to connect with the angels for a variety of situations

* A list of archangels and the career each governs

* Advice on healing relationships with the angels

* Insight on the special connection between children and angels

* Compelling stories demonstrating the love and wisdom of angels

Although I’ve read many of Doreen’s books (including Archangels and Ascended Masters, Angel Medicine, and Angel Numbers), I still found great value in Angels 101. She deftly describes the historical role of angels, as well as their personal roles as messengers and helpers–encouraging readers to call upon these beautiful ones for concerns both large and “small”. (However, according to Doreen, there are no “small” concerns. If it matters to you, it matters to the angels!) I was reminded that we often “have not because we ask not”, especially in terms of seeking aid and comfort from the angels.

Angels 101 is an excellent primer for those new to connecting with angels, as well as an inspirational, informative reminder for those familiar with both angels and Doreen’s work.

Healing After Loss: Daily meditations for working through grief
Martha Whitmore Hickman
For those who have suffered the loss of a loved one, here your will find strength and thoughtful words to inspire and comfort.

Many precious thoughts are gathered here to help you heal:

“Into the nebulous, ongoing mystery of life I welcome, as if through an open door, the continuing spirit of the one I have loved.”

Here is a particularly touching review from Amazon:

“Healing After Loss” was given to me after the sudden and unexpected death of our 14 year old son in March. The loss is so terrible and unimagined. We have struggled to go through each day without our only child, our wonderful son.

The friend who gave me the book had lost both her parents and her maternal grandparents within a 10 year span. She actually brought over her own dog-eared copy saying that I needed it now and she didn’t have time to get a new one. Since then I have ordered my own as well as copies for my parents, Aunts and Uncles and friends.

This book has incredibly insight, hope, understanding and some new ideas delivered in small doses (the tiny shafts of light in the darkness). Since concentration levels are so affected during grieving, the one page entries are easy to read or skip, if you need a one that will more fit your moment. With grief, at least for me, it seems like my mood and outlook can change so much within a couple days – this book fills many needs.

Although my husband hasn’t read it like I have, I will now and again give him a page to read that is particularly insightful for us at that moment and it can, however briefly, help him as well.

At first I read what ever I turned to when I opened it, then I read all the dates that were significant to me, now I am reading it like a daily diary. Last week I was talking to my friend, she has a copy, and although she listened she didn’t feel she had an answer for me. Later, she called back giving me a page in the book to read – it was so completely accurate for that moment and feeling – I felt a bit of strength after reading the page.

I cannot say enough about the author and her grace, strength and ability to comfort.
