Evolved Souls Don’t Need Long Earthly Experiences
May 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. 
  3. 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
  4. 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'
  5.  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: Three years into our 'new normal' and we are feeling better about our dear daughter's transition to heaven.  Our biggest desire now is to become more aware of her presence.  We're convinced she really is alive, sends signs, and visits.  We just would like to sense her presence more on a regular basis. 

A: Congratulations on reaching the point of:

  1. less grieving
  2. more knowing that life and love are forever
  3. more energy to explore how to amplify your perceptions of her

After working with many grieving people for 50 years, I know some great practical keys for reaching your goal.  Here's a six-part path that I recommend . . .

  1. Know the evidence that life continues after bodily death

Afterlife researchers now know, without a doubt, that death is not the end of life.  However, many people don't yet know the vast amount of data that scientifically proves this.  This can result in unnecessary self-blame, fear, loneliness, and other lower-energy emotions and ways of being.  And that, in turn, makes it more difficult to perceive postmaterial persons whose new abode is characterized by higher-energy emotions of peace, joy, love, gratitude, and more. 

The following articles provide brief and easy-to-read overviews of the scientific, clinical, and firsthand experience evidence.

            #1  Scientific Evidence That Bodily Death Is NOT the End of Life

            #60 Clinical Evidence That Life Continues After Physical Death

            #115 Firsthand Experience Evidence for Life After Death

  1. Internalize the great news that life and love are forever

Old wounds, needless fears, and erroneous religious teachings can block you from knowing the list in article #19 ‘The Great News’How to best eliminate those blocks allows you to deeply internalize this news versus having a mere intellectual knowing.  Gary Schwartz PhD and I wrote Greater Reality Living that devotes a long chapter to this vital topic.  As described in article #70, my Holistic Breathing Technique is a safe and powerful way to release all three causes of blocks. 

In addition, see the following articles . . .

            #49 When You Have Been Abused

            #100 Enlightenment

  1. Fine-tune yourself holistically

Sensing those who have graduated from earth-school involves, in part, expanding your senses.  Mediums practice doing this to develop their clear seeing, hearing, feeling, and knowing abilities.  Getting and staying well is a big topic since each person has unique needs for their body, brain, and consciousness.  A great start is to read my book Radiant Wellness.  Another is to use my Ask Your Soul, G.O.D., and Angels technique to access your and their wisdom and guidance about all aspects of your life.

  1. Open yourself to a different but very real relationship

The collective evidence strongly indicates that your loved ones, people and pets, want to continue being in your life.  They enjoy being present at family gatherings and you talking with them when you feel called to do so.  You may sense them during spontaneous after death communications while waking or sleeping.  You can increase the probability of meaningful visits by using steps outlined in article #9 and using my Facilitated After Death Communication Technique.   Article #82 describes how you can shift from primarily identifying yourself as 'a bereaved person'.

  1. Get on a similar wavelength as your child

Your dear who has changed worlds is in a realm characterized by peace, joy, love, gratitude, and other higher-energy emotions.  It's difficult for you to sense your loved one's living presence if you are feeling a lot of sadness, pain, guilt, anger, and other lower-energy emotions.  That's why, moment by moment, you need to consciously choose to focus on more positive emotions.  Two ways to do that include:

  1. Read article #108 Higher Energies, Emotions, and Ways of Being 
  2. Use the A.R.T. Technique (Acceptance, Realization, and Transformation) audio product that uses deep relaxation and guided imagery.
  1. Consult an evidential medium

See article #6 Evidential Mediums to learn more about this service and see a list of ones I recommend. 

I encourage you to regularly take these action steps so you increasingly detect your daughter's presence.  Over time, you can develop a 'new normal' relationship with them that can be very meaningful and comforting.  You can learn more about this by watching interviews I've done with parents with children who have passed on.  These 'shining light' parents describe how they sense their kid's signals.  (Their wise and loving input is invaluable for anyone who is grieving the passing of a spouse, parent, sibling, friend, pet, or other loved one.)  To watch the YouTube videos, click here: Affiliate Leader and Caring Listener Interviews.  

To you and all parents, please follow this program for 90 days.  Then let me know how you are doing and we'll go from there.  

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