You are welcome to come along with me on this journey of connecting to the world of spirit. However, I must share with you one of the most important aspects of touching and connecting to the divine and universal knowledge. In a way, there is a price of sorts, a key to open the door to your universal and spiritual connection. This price and what I have often thought of as an initiation into the world of spirit, this key, it is the one to open the door to your great within. Many misunderstand what I speak of when I say go within. It is simply this... Know thyself, and all will be revealed. To know who you are, to understand the power of your lifetime of experiences this is the only way to the many who are across the veil and on what is known as the other side. Through the guidance of spirit Project Spirit Life has been born. The reason why? Well, there are many. The first of which is to help you help yourself. To help you become your own hero in understanding that you are no longer a victim to your experiences. You can use the darkness of your own life to heal yourself and then, to help heal others. Love, Pamela Theresa
Five years ago Natalia's husband was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. After being the primary caregiver of her three children and her husband during his two year terminal illness and then experiencing the intense grief following his death, Natalia felt driven to discover how to recover from her devastating loss. She began learning how to not only recover from grief, but actually go on to live the wonderful life we are meant to live. She received training in how to help others recover from loss and is now a grief recovery coach and speaker. Her desire is to change the way our society views grief, coach individuals through their grief, and train others in how to support a friend through loss.

Have you ever lost a loved one and felt such despair that you did not know what to do or how to handle your grief? Grief and loss is a subject very often avoided and so desperately in need of being addressed. Join Liz Dawn as she talks with Karla Kay, author of Grief, The Universal Emotion of Loss.
In 2003, Karla Kay lost her husband, daughter and her surviving daughter’s best friend when the vehicle she was driving had a blow out and rolled out of control. Karla had worked for Hospice since 1994 and supported hundreds of people in their grieving, yet in her search, found little relief from her profound, horrific, sudden losses and the subsequent Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome (PTSD) that she and her surviving teen daughter struggled with. Karla will share her own process as she healed from her own grief and talks about what each of us can do when going through a traumatic loss. http://karlakay.us/

The holidays aren't always so happy for everyone.
Do you dread attending parties and gatherings alone? Do past memories of a loved one who is no longer around make you feel sad and depressed? Maybe you just don't feel like singing carols, hanging decorations, or shopping for gifts. Maybe it's just all too overwhelming.
For many, the holidays only intensify the grief and pain inside, and it can be difficult to be around others or to connect with the joy of the season.
If that's you today, tune in as we talk to Greif Counselor/Educator, Tonya Cunningham, Founder of Tonya Cunningham Ministries. Hear her story of grief, loss, and finally, redemption. It will give you hope!
