Evolved Souls Don’t Need Long Earthly Experiences
July 2024 by Mark Pitstick, MA, DC

To all family members, I am very sorry about the death of your child’s human form.  (Your daughter and/or son didn't really die even though their earth-suit did.  That's an extremely important distinction.)  I’m glad you are learning how to heal and transform despite this seeming tragedy.  Six key understandings to making that shift are:

     1. Over 99% of who and what your child 'was' is still alive in the next phase of life.  This is true no matter how they passed on.  See the following articles at for a review of the scientific, clinical, and experiential evidence for this statement.

  1. Again, only their earthly body died: everything else about them continues – all the love, energy, sense of humor, memories, personality, energetic / spiritual body, and much more.
  2. They are happy, peaceful, loving, and enthusiastic – and want you to be that way now too. Read article #2 When a Child Changes Worlds and #93 For Bereaved Parents and Family Members to learn how you can do that. 

         4. You will see them when you pass on and can enjoy a different kind of relationship now.  To learn more about how you can do this, see article #9 Visit With ‘Departed’ Loved Ones Now
         5. You can choose – moment by moment – to transmute your grief into a spiritually transformative experience that powerfully improves your life and blesses others.  To learn how, see article #82 Journey from 'Bereaved' to 'Shining Light'

         6. You can heal and share gifts from their life and transition from earth by lovingly serving others.  Read article #84 Heal and Transform Your Suffering.

After a child changes worlds, family members understandably feel much pain, sadness, anger, guilt, and other lower-energy emotions.   No one could or should ever judge that.  However, many have learned to regularly use keys #1 - 6 above and, over time, and feel more peace, joy, love, and gratitude.  To learn more about how you can do this, see article #108 Higher Energies, Emotions, and Ways of Being.    

You can do the same.  It’s not easy and it doesn’t happen overnight, but it is possible with small steps day by day using the above keys and six action steps . . .

  1. Attend online HPH meetings on the Calendar and attend local Affiliate Groups.  (If there's not an in-person group nearby, consider staring one.)   
  2. Use Special Interest Groups that offer more focused service for fathers, siblings, parents of children who passed by suicide or substance abuse, and much more.

  3. Contact The Caring Listeners to talk with at no charge
  1. Read free articles at and take relevant action steps
  1. Listen to free Radio Shows at and experts' answers to life’s toughest questions including “Why do children die?”
  1. Lean on others as needed. Later, when you are doing better, you can help others.

Q: I have wanted to contact you for a while since maybe you could share your thoughts about my question.  I feel that if I share this with anyone, they will not understand me or think I'm crazy.  My son transitioned in 2020; he took himself home and was only 14 years old.  I knew he was struggling and depressed, but I didn't know how deep it was. 

About two weeks before he took his life, I heard a message loud and clear in my mind.  This voice told me that I would soon find my son the way I found him after he ended his life.  The message was very brief but completely right in details.  I heard the same thing a week later.  I searched his room and checked all his drawers but found nothing. 

After he died, I have often thought: What was it I heard?  Was it a premonition?  Was it the Spirit trying to warn me?  I'm open to any information and wisdom you can give me.  Have you heard anything similar?   I'd sure appreciate it.

A: You beautifully described a foreknowledge that many parents have described.  I view it as Creator / Life / Grace giving you a little warning to prepare you for what's to come.  In the upcoming book 'Shining Light Parents Speak', a number of parents shared signs that helped lighten the shock when their children changed worlds.  Here are a few excerpts from the 'Knowing' section in Chapter 3:

Colleen states, “In the beginning after his passing, I thought: ‘How could this happen?’ But then, when I reflected on it, I've always known that Dennis wasn't meant to be here for a long time. There was a nagging in my brain that said: ‘Hold on to this, he's not going to be here long’.”

Mary says, “When Katherine had her cardiac arrest and we started CPR, I realized that I knew this would happen all along – like I’d seen it before. That really shocked me. Katherine was at a place in her life where she had met a lot of her goals. She had a very difficult struggle with mental illness, but she was doing fantastic. I think it was just her time.”

Patty’s son Adam showed his precognition when he was young through drawings. “When Adam was in grade one, he constantly did these funny things. He painted pictures with little headstones and put his name on them or he painted a picture of a car accident. He did these things that would make me scratch my head. I believe they were signs from the universe like ‘This is a heads up’. I pushed a lot of them away but, now that I look back, they were there.”

Lisa W. relates, “When Anthony was four years old, he said ‘When I'm 18, I'm going to leave you and I'm so sad.’ I said, ‘Baby, when you're 18 you're a big boy and you go to college. It'll be okay.’ When he crossed over, he was 18. I reflected back that no four-year-old would think that. Where did he get that? Six months before Anthony passed, he was getting ready to go to college and he said, ‘Mom, I'm afraid I'm going to die. I keep feeling like I'm going to die. I need you to watch out for me.’ I can't argue against the view that our souls sometimes know. Many of us within this group had that knowing, that feeling – that's our soul’s awareness.”

I hope these accounts from other moms help you consider there may have been a timing and meaning to your son's passing.  As Mary said 'I think it was just her time.'

Reading and applying tips in Chapter 1 'Conscious Language' is another key to optimally healing and transforming.  There are more accurate – what Elizabeth and Irene call 'softer and more soulful' – terms for describing your son's transition from earth. 

Instead of 'he took his life', 'he ended his life', and 'he died', you can use words that reflect these truths: only his earthly form perished; life is eternal, doesn't end, and can't be taken.  Try using the following: 'he passed on', 'he changed worlds', and 'he graduated from earth-school'.  Some parents feel more comfort, hope, and lightness after upgrading their language.   

I suggest using the different resources listed in this Q & A.  To you and all parents, please let me know if you have any questions about forewarnings or any topic.

Hugs, love, and blessings as you heal, transform, and shine!
