         2. Ask Your Soul, Angels, and G.O.D. (#71) Add this session and continue (7a) as recommended. This one helps you access guidance and assistance from your higher self, your spiritual support team, and The Light. You can optimally heal, transform, serve others, and create more meaning to your child’s life.

         3. Facilitated Afterlife Contact (#9) After a month of using #1 and two months of #2, you should feel more peaceful and clear. At that point, you’ll be more likely to sense your child's living presence using this technique.

         4. Pre-Birth Planning (#25) This session allows you to explore whether your higher self may have chosen the possibility of adversity including the bodily death of your child. If so, what were your goals for planning that?  How can you fulfill those and create more meaning from what appears to be – from a limited human perspective – a senseless tragedy?
