    My son, David, passed away unexpectedly May 8, 2020. He was 40. I was devastated, so I visited a psychic I knew from when my mom died, a year before. She told me David said, as he passed into the higher realm, “Wow. The Flower of Life is really real.” I had no idea at the time what she was talking about. She had never met my son, and didn’t even know he had passed away until our session. A couple of months later, I was working at my desk, noticed his business card (he was a designer and artist) – looked closer – and there it was – the background of his business card – the Flower of Life.

      He must be in a beautiful place to be able to see that. Your story touched me, as the flower of life symbolises; we are all connected and I just felt like sending you a virtual hug and good wishes.

    A friend just sent me the flower of life graphic through text today. He said he was nudged by the universe today to send this to me. I found your story of your son and felt a powerful connection with the all-ness of creation. I had an amazing experience today as my deepest fear up until Now has been feeling alone. and today I thought, that’s not true. The real truth is I’m All One. In that instant – I’m driving down a five lane road, a hawk flew out of no where right in front of my widnshield and swooped skyward. I believe we are the power of creation and One with all.
