Being Present in Grief

Being present with another is a gift like no other. A gift for yourself and the other. As I grieve the passing of my mom I have been forced to ponder what it means to be here, now. Ironically, this morning when I asked the Wisdom of the Oracle to give me a message about my mom, I pulled the card, “Here and Now”.

The oracle told me that my mom no longer lives in the past nor does she live in the future. She is NOW, fully present and whole. She is one with the Consciousness and IS, always.

So what does it mean for me to be here and now? As messages of condolences pour in, some through social media, chats, texts, phone calls, flowers, and some in person, I am learning much about being present for another. Being present for another means being Love for the other whatever form it takes. Love can be felt through any form, and so can the lack of it. Being present means putting aside all else and tuning into the person you are sharing “space” with in the now. In this space you can connect with another at a deeper soul level. You feel them, hear them, accept them, support them, and hold love for them. Time becomes irrelevant in the here and now. There is nothing else more important, neither does anything else exist other than YOU and the OTHER. You just ARE.

This space is magical, mystical, and feeds the Soul. Here there is healing, peace, and comfort. When you are present you gift yourself with YOU. When you bring You to the Other, and the Other is fully present with You then time stops. Together you become part of the Whole. You are no longer alone. You become one and all. Being present is meditation. It is being the faucet that is connected to the Source, allowing the flow to pour through you into the container that you are present in.

I know that when I am present with my Mom eventhough she has left physical form, she is flowing love to me from Source that she is forever connected with.  I only need to enter this space.  When you are Here and Now, the Divine flows through you.
