In many religious traditions, God is believed to be responsive to the needs of believers, and in difficult times, the faithful turn to God for comfort and guidance. When God is viewed as a benevolent protector that can shield us from harm, what happens to faith -- and healing -- when God fails to provide that protection?
Terri Daniel's new book, "Turning the Corner on Grief Street" begins where her previous books left off, by assuming that we are ready to accept grief and loss as not only necessary for spiritual growth, but also as sacred journeys that can elevate our perspectives and expand us rather than annihilate us.
Embracing Death: A New Look at Grief, Gratitude and God," explores cultural and religious myths about the afterlife and offers alternative perceptions via meditation, visualization and after-death communication. Using these intuitive tools, we can be led to new ways of understanding death and navigating the dying and grieving process.
A Swan in Heaven blends thought-provoking narrative with stirring afterlife messages from a 16 year-old boy who began communicating with his mother telepathically after his death. What makes this account unique in the world of channeled books is that during his life this extraordinary child was severely disabled and unable to speak. But after death his words were insightful, inspired and eloquent.
