If you have lost a loved one, I bet you’re dreading the New Year…
Believe me, I know how feel.
Right after my beloved Jean left his body, a dreadful image kept appearing in my mind.
It was the image of my future, which I saw as a long black road unspooling to the horizon. The road was surrounded by empty desert on all sides.... Read More
If you’re grieving the bodily loss of a loved one, I know how hard the holidays can be.
Holidays are the time we slow down and take a trip down memory lane.
In no time, we fall into a pit of sadness remembering those we have “lost.”
Today, I want to... Read More
Contrary to popular belief, time doesn’t heal grief. I’ll say it again. Time doesn’t heal grief.
In fact, I know that time actually adds salt to the wound.
Why do I say this? Because we aren’t meant to be separated from those we love. And, the longer we go without connecting to those we love, the worse we feel, and the worse our... Read More

During periods of distress, especially in the early days of my bereavement, I found myself unable to receive communications from Jean. I believe that the signs of... Read More
A couple of weeks ago, I received an email from the assistant of a famous corporate leader, Dr. Lance Secretan. He just wrote his memoir, A Love Story, in which he describes his passionate, life-long romance with wife, Trish. Dr. Lance wanted to meet me because he had heard about my book, Love Never Dies, and knew that we have much in common.
We had a brief phone call and I invited him to come on Ask Dr. Love radio to talk about his... Read More
In mid-August I spent a day at Lily Dale Assembly (the largest spiritualist community in America). I was teaching people how to establish a spiritual reconnection with their physically departed loved ones.
