Our previous topics have been a bit morbid lately, considering that I have also talked about death in the family in my previous post. Today, we will talk about something a bit heavier, something we wish never happens to us – but is unfortunately a reality for many – and that is the death of a child.
In the death of a child in the family, sometimes our sadness goes beyond knowing that we will never be able to see them again, but also because we worry about how they are “up there.” Just as we worry when we leave our children at home or for the first time in day care, we also have that sense of worry when they die. We worry about their spirit, what they are doing now, who is with them and if they are being cared for just as we have done as parents, here on earth.
While a child who passes away is still young, you have to understand that he or she is actually a full grown spirit. After death, they are greeted and met by guides and loved ones on the other side. When this happens, they are not young and helpless spirits just like the little child they were on earth. After death, they eventually move on and find their higher self, and are just fine as anybody who has also passed away.
This concept can be a bit difficult to grasp for us who remain here. This is because a child who has died will always be your baby, and you will always remember them as a child. Once you understand the concept about spirits and the higher self, it is easier to accept that your little one is fine out there. This acceptance can help lift off one burden from your mind, to make your mourning at least even one bit easier.
Losing someone close to your heart is never easy, especially if it is your child. After all, in the natural order of things, children are supposed to outlive their parents. Death in the family causes so much pain and heartache, and the hurt from the loss does not really subside for a long, long time. Some parents even feel guilty when they start to move on or have more children, because they feel like they’re leaving their little one behind.
However, it is comforting to know that they are going to be okay, and if you need more persuation in this aspect, you can reach out to them through mediums. Lastly, it helps to remember that they will always be part of your life even if they are no longer here.
