Caution: You Are Vulnerable Right Now


The death of a loved one makes us vulnerable to others because we are experiencing the powerful raw emotions of grief. Our defenses are down and we may not be thinking straight. Because we want the loneliness and pain to stop, or we yearn to know that our loved one is OK, we may turn to the services of psychics or mediums in our search for answers from the other side.

I offer a word of caution here: Not all psychics can communicate with souls on the other side, and not all people who call themselves psychics or mediums are on spiritual paths. Some just want your money. To be fair, most psychics and mediums sincerely want to help you. Because skill levels vary in every profession, there are gifted and not so gifted spirit communicators.

Please go to a psychic or medium for spirit communication only if that person has been recommended to you by someone you trust. If you are grieving the death of a loved one, you are fragile, and sadly, there are people who will prey upon your vulnerability. Please use caution and take care of yourself.

Definition of terms:

The word 'psychic' comes from the Greek work psyche meaning 'soul' and refers to various forms of extrasensory perception. As such, psychic is a broad umbrella term covering a wide range of abilities such as predicting the future, reading minds or extracting information from holding an object. It can be an adjective (psychic gifts) or a noun (She is a psychic). Most psychics have one or two particular areas of strength which may, or may not, include receiving information from the afterlife. A medium, on the other hand, has a specific skill: that of communicating with the spirits of the dead.

Why can’t I find a page or link that used to be here?

Over the last eleven years, The Grieving Heart® meandered into many topics and lost its purpose. I have deleted 40 pages to bring it back to the original focus of grief and helping grievers.

Web addresses come and go and I cannot guarantee the accuracy, safety or longevity of third-party (external) sites. Adding links by request, or finding and fixing broken links are massive time consumers, so I have deleted many outside sources and will limit additions in the future. The external links that remain are checked on a regular basis and related to grief, helping grievers and pet loss. 

I will continue to honor and remember veterans and fallen soldiers because it is the least I can do for those who have given so much.

I hope that my renewed attention to grief information will make The Grieving Heart® a better experience and comfort for you. Thank you for visiting. CJ

A Word About E-mail: One way to decrease SPAM caused by Internet bots is to deactivate the live address link. You can still contact me by typing this address into your own e-mail program using @, a period, and no spaces, the standard e-mail format. Thank you.

Note to Visitors:
I read and respond to grief email at the end of each month when I update this site. If you need a more timely response, please visit a well moderated grief healing discussion group. It is free to use and requires registration to participate. I am not part of this group, but certified grief counselors are there to help, support and comfort grievers and those who love them. Because the counselors lost funding for the site, they are grateful for voluntary donations.

How complicated and individual mending is,
the time required for healing
cannot be measured against any fixed calendar
