One month ago, my client, Linda, had her 50th session with me. (No one else has come close to that many.)
I’ve been working with her for eight years in an exploration that has spanned centuries, taken us to every part of the world, and included several past lives where we knew each other.
Sadly, after a long struggle with diabetes, Linda passed over to the other side a few days ago. And, though we never met in person, I’ve felt the loss deeply.
Her intellectual and spiritual curiosity made her a delight to work with.
And she found a place in the hearts of my wife, Christine, and my assistant, Adriana, as well.
I knew, last week, that Linda was not long for this world. But I knew, too, the moment her soul left her body, because an alarm went off. And I don’t mean that metaphorically.
At 11:30 on Friday night, Christine and I were getting ready for bed when we heard a mysterious buzzing in the room.
It took several minutes to locate its source: an old travel bag neither of us had used for two or three years, hidden behind the dresser. I pulled it out and rummaged through it until I found a travel alarm clock at the bottom. It was buzzing away, and wouldn’t turn off. Eventually I had to pull the battery out to make it stop.
I knew right away it was Linda, and we sent her a little prayer with our love and appreciation.
The next morning, Christine called Linda’s sister for an update. Sure enough, Linda had died at the exact time the alarm went off. We confirmed with my Guides it was their way of getting our attention.
And there’s more. She passed away, but shortly after, she came back to life. This happened several times over the space of hours; she would die, and then come back to life. The hospice nurse said she’d never seen anything like it. Her sister and everyone in the room were blown away by it.
As it turns out, Linda was hanging on—or at least her soul was—because, as my Spirit Guides put it, “She didn’t want to miss her own funeral!”
If you’ve been following my blog posts, you’ll know Christine and I had an extraordinary experience in Venice recently, when we helped a Benedictine monk to finally cross over after a few centuries between planes. So we knew what to do.
Helping Linda to release this world and head over to the next was simply a matter of reminding her soul that it would have priority seating at the funeral from the Astral Plane. We gave her soul a “go to the light” message, and assured her that her loved ones were forming a welcoming committee for her on the other side.
The next day, we had a chat with Linda from her new digs on the Astral Plane.
She has chosen to act as a spirit guide on our behalf, which Christine and I both find very touching. She asked us to toast her passing with a glass or two of French champagne, and when I asked if we could use the bottle of Prosecco already in the fridge, she was insistent we get the real thing. Linda had spent some happy years in France, and had a master’s in French, so it had to be proper champagne.
Having had to deal with poor eyesight for years, it was delightful to hear Linda say, “It’s good to see you both now.” I’ll miss our sessions together, but am delighted to know she will be part of my team of spirit guides.
Linda touched all of us on the SoulWorld team very deeply; she was one of the most genuinely caring people I’ve known.
We’ll miss her sweet presence on the Physical Plane, as well as her regular packages with news clippings of interest, and tips on everything from cat care to healing house plants. It’s comforting to know that she’s right there on the Astral Plane, eager now to assist us on our spiritual journey.
Losing someone is always hard, but it’s important to remember that death is never final.
And connecting on a soul level is as simple as closing our eyes for a moment, and allowing the connection to happen.
My mother died last week.
My wee four year old granddaughter, Freya said she had dreamed of great grandma sitting in a very beautiful, very sunny garden, by a pool, and she was dipping her feet in the water. There were fluffy white pillowcases, she said, for everyone to sleep in!
I found that a very happy image!
So sorry about the loss of your mum, Fiona. But isn’t it reassuring when you get that validation she’s doing alright on the other side? Love to you, and blessings to your mother.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart for the work that you do, to help guide us reach an understanding with our own souls. Since seeing you at Kripaula 2 years ago, I feel like I know myself on a level I never thought possible. I have many areas of growth in this lifetime but I know my soul type is helper! It feeds my soul like nothing else. Thank you for helping me uncover that, you are truly an angel here on earth yourself! ?
What truly feeds my soul is the work I do. Thank you for the kind words, Jenine, you’re an angel, too!
My heartfelt sympathy to you and Chrisine on the loss of such a special soul in your lives. May you continue to feel an even more expansive relationship with Linda’s spirit. Thank you for sharing your special relationship with Linda and may you both feel peace in her continued presence.

Thank you, Portia. It’s comforting to be able to still connect with Linda. She was a great communicator while here, and that seems to have continued in spirit!
Yes, thank you, Portia. That’s sweet of you to say, and much appreciated. What a gift for us to be surrounded by such beautiful, loving souls!
What a moving and lovely tribute to a fellow old soul who has crossed over. I wish I’d known her. Thank you for sharing her story with us!
Love to you all,
She was soul family, and would have enjoyed meeting you, Kate!
At the moment of my mother’s death last year, I got a sharp pain in my heart. I thought Oh No, my mother is dying and I’m going to have a heart attack too! Shortly after, the phone rang, and I was notified that she had just died. I didn’t have a heart attack and the pain was just transient.
A few weeks later an image of her as a young, happy girl, running around, not sick and old, kept coming into my mind. I thought that was her trying to make me feel better for her in her new place.
I’ll bet that was her, Cindy. Just letting you know she was doing well.
What a beautiful message. Sad but it also sounds like Linda has arrived where she was well prepared for, by her work with you. A blessing to all I can see. She rang that bell for a final session. Now she guides. I love it. Look forward to some messages from her ?
Bless you Ainslie. And Christine too.
I’ll share any messages I get, Linda. And yes, a blessing to all. Karmic!
Thank you! Xox
