Evolved Souls Don’t Need Long Earthly Experiences
October 2023 by Mark Pitstick, MA, DC

To all family members, I am very sorry about the death of your child’s human form.  However, I’m glad you are learning that – except for the earthly body – he or she is alive, happy, peaceful, and wants you to be the same.  I'm also happy that you are learning how to heal and transform despite this seeming tragedy.  Six key understandings to making that shift are:

     1. Approximately 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 articles #1 and 60 at for a review of the scientific and clinical evidence for this statement.  For more information, see my short and easy-to-read book The Afterlife Evidence

  1. Only his earthly body died. Everything else continues – the love, energy, sense of humor, memory, personality, energetic body, and much moreReally knowing this is a key to healing. 

  2. She is happy, peaceful, loving, and enthusiastic – and wants 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 him 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 to transmute your grief into a spiritually transformative experience that

powerfully improves your life and blesses others.  See article #82 Journey from 'Bereaved' to 'Shining Light'

     6. You can heal and increase the gifts from his life 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 emphasize #1 – 6 above and enjoy life again.  They have journeyed – one step at a time – FROM primarily identifying as bereaved TO shining light persons.  

Shining light family members have sad feeling too at times, but they choose to focus – as much as possible – on appreciation for great times and memories, realization they will see their child again, and transformation by finding the silver linings.  They resolve to make the world a better place in honor of their children by creating more meaning to their life and passing. 

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.  To learn more, see article #2 at  Here are five action steps . . .

  1. Attend local and online Helping Parents Heal meetings
  2. 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. 

Questions & Answers

To all parents, family, and friends of a child who changed worlds, below is an example of what I offer at no charge.  Doing this is a sacred honor and deep calling so please don't hesitate to reach out.  In a short but information-packed email, I will answer your biggest questions and provide holistic solutions for your toughest challenges. 

Q: Thank you for giving me hope for my daughter’s soul.  I have watched all your videos and they comfort me somewhat.  My daughter overdosed last summer.  I have been forever changed and am going through a major faith crisis.  

A: Your faith crisis is totally understandable.  Are you part of the Helping Parents Heal organization?  If not, please do that as soon as possible.  Attend online classes, local meetings, and use the Caring Listeners.  Also read the following articles at for more information about the topics you're exploring:

   #2 When a Child Changes Worlds

   #4 When a Loved One Passes On by Suicide

   #13 What is G.O.D. Really Like?

   #14 Heaven and Hell . . . What Are They Really?

   # 104 “Ghosts” / Interim Postmaterial Persons

Q: I was raised to believe that heaven, hell, and purgatory exist.  My quest this past year has been to explore the afterlife.  I’m in pursuit of finding out to the best of my abilities where my daughter’s soul is.  I’ve been told that she's earthbound, stuck on earth, and not in heaven yet.  This frightens me and I don’t know what to believe.  

A: Who told you that she is 'stuck' on earth?  There are a lot of poor to average mediums but also some very good ones.  To learn more about how to find the latter, see article #6 Evidential Mediums.

Q: She was very depressed and anxious and I don’t know if she overdosed on purpose.  Her state of being I believe was “dark”, and I don’t know if this means she’s “stuck” and not crossed over.  

A: I and many others understand how difficult it is to be on earth.  Some young people use drugs and alcohol in an attempt to 'numb out' and try to survive.  That, of course, can open the door to drug overdose.  Surely angels, guides, and The Light understand this as well.  Your daughter was and is surrounded by love, peace, acceptance, and understanding.  It's just a matter of when she will open to it.  (You can be assured that will eventually happen because those higher energies are our true nature and Source.)  

Q: Is there anything you can say to help me find out about the status of her soul?  

A: As mentioned, you could consult an excellent medium.  HPH has a number of excellent ones who help:  You also can expand your relationship with her now using the techniques discussed in article #9 Visiting ‘Departed’ Loved Ones Now

Q: I want her in God’s love and hands, in His Heaven to finally rest and be at peace.  

** All creation is in God's hands just like the old church hymns 'She's Got the Whole Word in Her Hands' and 'Her Eye Is on the Sparrow'.  (I changed gender for Creator since "the big judgmental and vengeful guy in the sky" image is so embedded in humanity's psyche.)  She and you will eventually realize that and live accordingly. 

Q: I want to help my daughter’s soul.  I pray and meditate every day and have begged God to send me some kind of message.  

A: Meditation is great but prayers of thanks are more powerful than begging.  Source Energy wants what you want in this regard.  Keep talking to her and encouraging her to follow The Light.  She might already be there and your worry is needless.   See article #71 Ask Your Soul, G.O.D. and Angels about how you can access your inner knowing about this. 

Please take action steps as outlined above and let me know how you're doing in 90 days.  

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