One of the most common questions that I am asked when people’s loved ones cross over is, “Are they alright”?

When my Grandpa Buck crossed over I will tell you in all honesty, I was absolutely consumed with grief. I had experienced a very lonely childhood and my Grandpa Buck was the man to help me cope. When I was 21 years old, just before my Grandpa crossed over, he promised he would always be nearby. He promised to continue to love, support and protect me, and he continues to this day.

Four years later, God and my Grandpa sent me a very special dog named Rocky. There was no doubt in my mind that Rocky was sent to me from above. Just eight months after adopting Rocky, I was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease. I had rescued Rocky from being put down and he saved my life on many occasions. Rocky helped me cope and heal from Crohn’s disease, a life and death pregnancy, abuse, divorce and then he helped me start life over. Rocky was my best friend. Then on December 3rd, 2001, I held Rocky in my arms for the last time, as he took his final breath. Knowing I would never hold him ever again, or feel his wet kisses that I loved so much, was devastating for me. Even though I knew Rocky was with Grandpa Buck, and that he was happy and healthy again, I just couldn’t shake my sadness. Up until the day Rocky crossed over, I was seeing and hearing others on the other side all the time. Then I became consumed with grief and stopped connecting with them. When my loved ones felt enough was enough, they used the new man in my life. His name was Ross. Ross would bring me the sign that Rocky was still with me and he was alright on the other side. My loved ones were confident that Ross would get me back on track again!

Three weeks later it was Christmas Eve. Ross pulled me aside on that Christmas Eve morning and said he had something he had to give me. He said it was important he gave it to me alone. I opened this mystery gift and there inside was a beautiful blue candle holder. It was three angels holding hands. I took the candle holder out of the box and then looked up. I began to cry! Right in front of me was my Grandpa Buck, my Guardian Angel, and my dear, sweet Rocky, wagging his tail with excitement that I finally saw him. Poor Ross was unsure of what was going on. I had not yet exactly told him of this special gift I had of connecting to the other side. Seeing the concern on his face, I shared how special this gift was that he had given me. Then he explained what had unfolded for me to have this gift.

In the beginning of our relationship, Ross was not what I would have called an organized person. He always left things to the last minute. He did all of his holiday shopping the day before Christmas. But on this particular day in mid-December, while he was out running errands, he felt a very strong urge to go into a Hallmark store. He wasn’t sure why he was going in, and he couldn’t resist the strong pull that was taking him there. He later shared with me this was not a store he would commonly shop at. Upon entering the store, he felt pulled to an area where the candle holders were. He could not resist the need to buy that candle holder for me. Ross had no idea how Rocky was using him to communicate with me. In those early days of our relationship, Ross would not have believed that spirits on the other side communicate with us. That is how strong that pull and urge was for him. After explaining why this gift was so important to me he was touched, amazed, and honoured to be a part of this bigger plan.

As a result of spending so much time focusing on what I had lost, I wasn’t in the present moment and I wasn’t aware of the things right in front of me. I was completely missing every sign Rocky gave me. If you are in a similar place, it’s better to focus on what your loved one had provided to enrich your life. For me, Rocky gave me unconditional love, support, and incredible strength. When our loved ones cross over they stay with us, but in a different form. We can still have a relationship with them. In all honesty where they are now, they can help us even more. Daily, I ask my loved ones to bring me the right people, or to put me in the right place at the right time. They always come through.

The next time you feel that urge to do something different, go with it, don’t question it, and you may be pleasantly surprised what unfolds or how you make a positive difference in someone’s life.

And to answer that most commonly asked question – ‘Is my loved one alright?’ – I will tell you, from my first hand experience, they are now in a place filled with love, peace, and joy. They are healthy and whole again.
