    On Death and Dying

    in Spirituality

    Today's show is on a topic that will one day, late or soon, affect us all:  death and dying.  So much illusion and romanticism, horror, and just plain ridiculousness surround our ideas of death, so let's set the record straight.  We'll talk about this subject from the perspectives of the dying and the living to get a thorough understanding and, by the end of the show, you'll realize that this is a loving universe that supports you entirely and that there is nothing to fear from this most natural process.

    Enjoy the show!

    On Death and Dying

    in Self Help

    One topic that can make even the strongest of people cringe is death. Death is also the one part of life that we can bank on. If we live....we die, that's that. How can we become comfortable with this concept and accept that we are not alone in this end result? How can we prepare for the end days of our loved ones and for ourselves? We experience this transition over and over again during our lives vicariously through the transition of others. We can learn what we wish for ourselves, and what we definitely don't want. But how will anyone know your wishes unless you talk about it!

    Let's get together and share our experiences, our knowledge, and our tips on how to hold onto dignity and great grace during the most trying, and yet inevitable event in our lives.

    Psychic Talk About Death and Dying and the Afterlife

    in Spirituality

         Ths show will be about what I encountered as a Hospice RN on death and dying.  Patients who were very close to death saw their loved ones and acted differently.  They would wait to see a particular loved one before they went home.     I will also tell you about my personal expereinces with my mom and dad dying.    I will tell you about people I've encountered who had near death experiences and what the other side was like. I will discuss my lucid dreams with my deceased parents and a patient who was very close to me.             

         I can also give you a private reading.  You can contact me through my email at mia0899cs@gmail.com.  Again, I will only charge $20.00 for a detailed email reading.  I will do a live phone reading for $20.00 as well. I accept Paypal. Please feel free to read my reviews on Kasamba.com. My screen name on there is just mia0899cs. I don't ask for reviews but I do a lot more readings than the 204 reviews I have. They are 5 star reviews and I wouldn't read if I was fake.  My number of reviews are accurate. I don't use bots and I question some of the so called, "Top Psychics" who have more reviews than readings as well as the time the site has been on. If you prefer a reading from me through Kasamba that's also fine.       

    Love and Light,

    Cindy (Psychic Mia0899cs)

    A Conversation About End of Life Care: The How, Why, Who and When

    in Health

    Howard Block and I will be discussing how to talk about end of life care with a loved one, patient or friend.  It can be difficult to know how to approach the topic and exactly what to say.  We will discuss why it shouldn't be a conversation with  only your doctor but also your family.  Why is it important?  It is a topic no one wants to have but it can be so helpful knowing what a loved onewants when death is near. We both have had the experience of working with people who knew what they wanted and others who didn't.  We have learned the importance of this conversation and how it helps families.  We are talking about people saying exactly how much care they want whether full code or not.  We hope to remove some of the fear and uncertainty that people experience.  It is our goal for listeners to know it is their choice.

    Audio Blog#17: Surviving Death

    in Health

    Surviving death is about the days after all the details are done, memorials and estate issues, and the grief begins to take hold.  I am going to talk about what it is like to suddenly find yourself alone with your loss, the emptiness and the sadness.  A conversation as difficult in our society as dying.  How I learned and witnessed my own rawness and vulnerability.  A journey to understand how one survives the death of a loved one.

    Suicide of a Loved One: A Panel Discussion

    in Self Help

    Did a member of your family commit suicide?

    If so, was it done in front of you and/or your relatives?

    How were you and/or your relatives affected by the suicide of a loved one?

    Be here to call in your questions or share your comments. Call  (657) 383-1766.

    Note: To protect the identity of our guests, their names and pictures will NOT be used with the exception of Shawna.

    The five stages of normal grief that were first proposed by Dr. Elisabeth Kübler-Ross* in her 1969 book On Death and Dying are:

    denial,  anger,  bargaining,  depression, and  acceptance.

    They are a part of the framework that makes up our learning to live with the one we lost.They are tools to help us frame and identify what we may be feeling. But they are not stops on some linear timeline in grief. Not everyone goes through all of them or in a prescribed order. Our hope is that with these stages comes the knowledge of grief ‘s terrain, making us better equipped to cope with life and loss.

    At times, people in grief will often report more stages. Just remember your grief is an unique as you are.

    * Dr. Elisabeth Kubler-Ross earned a place as the best-loved and most-respected authority on the subjects of death and dying. Through her many books, and her years working with terminally ill children, AIDS patients, and the elderly,Dr. Kubler-Ross brought comfort and understanding to millions coping with their own deaths or the death of a loved one. Her books have been translated into 27 languages. She passed away in 2004 at the age of 78. Before her death, she and David Kessler completed work on their second collaboration, On Grief and Grieving.

    Dr. Kristine Kevorkian - Death and Dying

    in Lifestyle

    Dr. Kristine Kevorkian holds a doctorate in thanatology, the study/science of death and dying. She worked as a hospice social worker for many years, and a deputy coroner. Dr. Kevorkian has received certificates of recognition for Outstanding Social Work Service from political figures in California.
    Kristine managed to come full circle in researching, defining and protecting the terms "environmental grief" and "ecological grief." This research allows her the opportunity to combine her love for whales and the environment with her passion for thanatology. In conducting her research, Kristine found political parties manipulating terms intended to protect the environment. In order to secure these terms and definitions, scientists and professors encouraged her to protect the terms.
    Dr. Kristine Kevorkian is an educator, consultant, international speaker on issues of end-of-life care, grief and loss, death and dying, environmental grief and ecological grief.
