On her way through grief, she searches for answers that cannot be given and finally finds something that is far more valuable: an intense inner connection with her deceased son that helps her to accept and love life as she does it is.

Fully understand the death of a loved one
New approaches to coping with grief and the higher meaning behind the different ones
strokes of fate

by Kathleen Baumgart
 

Sometimes life, with all its ups and downs, offers us the best answers to our questions. Sometimes, however, it takes a heavy blow of fate to see things more clearly.

In October 2018 I received a phone call that would completely destroy my life from one second to the next. My eldest son took his own life when he was just 13, so I initially plunged into a swamp of guilt, unspeakable pain, anger, and crippling grief. 

But I realized relatively quickly that the background to suicide is very different from what we can perceive with our "being human". Behind every painful experience there is a much higher meaning, which can ultimately bring healing and growth to our soul. If only we let it...                                                                 

Since then I have been on an extraordinary journey, which is still paved with hurdles. But it's still the most beautiful journey of all, because it brings me closer and closer to my son and also allows my understanding of life and death to take on completely different dimensions.                                                             

It is a spiritual journey that led me, among other things, to a medium, to an ancestral constellation, a palm leaf reading and to the angel numbers. I would like you to be part of this journey, because not only the healing, but also the immense knowledge behind it is of inestimable value. The prenatal life or soul plans are included here, because they form the basis for your understanding and thus for your healing.  

The book also contains various exercises and methods, which can offer you suggestions and new impulses as well as support on your way.
