Today, at the end of Season 2, I go (deep) 'down the rabbit hole' to discuss reality in this solo episode. Since losing your loved one to suicide have you ever questioned reality? I know the edge of reality -and ‘someplace else’ - is a place I have often found myself firmly standing since the loss of my son Alex to suicide in 2016. This has happened for a few reasons I think.
I think synchronicities are partially to blame & the understanding of life & our connection to the afterlife as well. This is a deep topic - I know I only scratch the surface but hopefully, I give you a lot to think about.
So, just to help, let’s define it, from Webster it is:
1. the world or the state of things as they exist, as opposed to an idealistic or notional idea of them. My son - his energy- exists.
2. the state or quality of having existence or substance. I will make the same argument as above.
Hmmm…right??? So, find your reality & embrace it. You are not alone. Unfortunately, many of us share this reality - & we understand. Life is all about shifts. Some we make. Some happen to us. Some are welcome, others are our worst nightmare- but what we make of these shifts will define our reality. Sending love always.
