What The Dead Can Teach The Living

Renown medium James Van Praagh (the co-excutive producer of the hit TV series, Ghost Whisperer) has been communicating with the souls of the deceased for decades. The most common message that the souls want to convey is one of regret i.e. regretting for doing the wrong thing or not doing something that should have been done. The core message for the living from the Other Side is – ‘Do not leave any unfinished business behind.’ The souls truly want us to reconcile with others while we still have a chance. In other words, we should make peace with those whom we argue with. In the long term, all our energy spent on hate and anger serves no purpose other than to teach us the importance of forgiveness.

Lyrics from Mike & The Mechanic’s hit song ‘The Living Years’ capture the aforesaid point succinctly :-

“Every generation
Blames the one before
And all of their frustrations
Come beating on your door…..

I wasn’t there that morning
When my Father passed away
I didn’t get to tell him
All the things I had to say

I think I caught his spirit
Later that same year
I’m sure I heard his echo
In my baby’s new born tears
I just wish I could have told him in the living years

Say it loud, say it clear
You can listen as well as you hear
It’s too late when we die
To admit we don’t see eye to eye”
