I can’t breathe, I’m waiting for the exhale
Toss my pain with my wishes in a wishing well
(lyrics from song WISHING WELL by Juice WRLD)
Today would have been my brother’s 73rd birthday. He was one of the most important people in my early life, and there is no doubt in my mind that we have been soulmates many times before this life.
The photo of my brother, daughter, and myself was taken in the fall of 1997 at the wishing well at Disneyland. If only I had known it would be our final photo together, and the last time I would see my brother, I certainly would have thrown a coin in that well. The reality is that he would die just eight months later.
Just a couple of weeks ago, my spirit guide Holly, encouraged me to engage in direct communication with my brother. Up until this time, he has come as a bird (see this post They Come as Birds), but now Holly wanted me to try soul bridge communication with my brother.
Holly: May 1, 2021: It is a good idea for you to open direct communication with your brother. There are many things you have wanted to share with each other, and now that opportunity has presented itself.
So, I took out a new journal to share with my brother, and here is what I said: Dear Ed, despite the death of your physical body 23 years ago, you have done an amazing job of showing your presence in my life. What have you learned in your life review and time in spirit?
My brother: I am so sorry for the pain I have caused for so many people. The life I knew as Ed was coming to an end, so I needed to free myself from Ed’s body. I realize that with my freedom, I caused great angst for others, but that was the choice that was best for Ed. I hope you and my daughter know I remain eager to be at your sides whenever you need me. You can trust that our souls’ paths will cross again. We are soulmates who are entwined with the purpose of our individual and collective evolution. Thank you for opening this direct dialogue.
For those of you feeling the pain of the recent loss of a loved one, or perhaps from 23 years ago as in our case, we want you to know your loved ones are eager to connect with you. Soul Bridge Coaching and Holly (May 30, 2021)
