    In March of 2011, Della Temple's 29-year-old son Richard Cooper George died in a solo vehicle accident. Of this life-changing event, she writes: My son was dead and the dreams I held for him—of marriage, children, and a career, were useless. I still held those dreams, those wishes, in my body. Much of the work I did over the next few years was clearing those stories, those wishes and hopes, from my body. I've come to think that grief is twofold. It's the painful longing for the physical presence In March of 2011, Della Temple's 29-year-old son Richard Cooper George died in a solo vehicle accident. Of this life-changing event, she writes: My son was dead and the dreams I held for him—of marriage, children, and a career, were useless. I still held those dreams, those wishes, in my body. Much of the work I did over the next few years was clearing those stories, those wishes and hopes, from my body. I've come to think that grief is twofold. It's the painful longing for the physical presence of our loved one, and it's the emotional heartache we feel as we disengage from these unfulfilled dreams, the sorrows of what could have been. The stories of a life unlived. In tender, heartfelt chapters, Temple shares how she navigated the days and weeks and months after her son's death. Acting as a compass for those who are lost in the storm of grief, Temple not only offers personal stories but also a variety of "healing meditations" for readers to adopt during their own grief work. In step-by-step increments, readers can work through the meditations with Temple as their own personal guide. She refers to this as "offering her hand to the reader." The very personal nature of this book is hard to deny. It is vitally alive on every page. Temple offers "Tools to Release the Pain", "All the Firsts" and "Holiday Season Shoulds" to name a few very useful chapters complete with meditations. This slim volume contains a wealth of intellectual, spiritual, and metaphysical information. Readers will likely connect with the author on several levels by the time they complete their own journey. Temple's deeply personal sharing makes that connection more real, more in-the-moment. and all the more compassionate as she reaches out to others who find themselves grappling with deep personal loss. Whether you have experienced loss or you know someone who has, or you are professionally engaged with those who suffer loss, this is a valuable resource. by Lee Ambrose for Story Circle Book Reviews reviewing books by, for, and about women

    Della Temple's 29-year-old son Rick died instantly in a car crash. She describes how she coped in the weeks and months following his death, especially during the holiday season. At the time, Della was already undertaking a psychic awareness program. Her belief that Rick's Spirit lived on allowed her to accept his death and enter a state of Grace. She discovered her purpose is to be a teacher, and she tells her story in order to help ease the pain of other people who have lost loved ones. One of Della Temple's 29-year-old son Rick died instantly in a car crash. She describes how she coped in the weeks and months following his death, especially during the holiday season. At the time, Della was already undertaking a psychic awareness program. Her belief that Rick's Spirit lived on allowed her to accept his death and enter a state of Grace. She discovered her purpose is to be a teacher, and she tells her story in order to help ease the pain of other people who have lost loved ones. One of her major messages is not to focus on the what-ifs but to remember what was. She discusses the concepts of reincarnation, Life Contracts, and cites meditation as a way of quietening the mind and opening ourselves up to receiving messages from our dead loved ones. Meditations she describes include: • Centering • Grounding Cord • The Golden Sun • Blowing up a Rose • Releasing Sorrow and Pain • Keeping Pity Energy Away • Releasing the Cord that Binds • Honoring Your Journey I suggest performing the meditations in the order presented, as they build on each other. This is an eye-opening and enlightening book that will bring comfort to those who have lost a loved one. Della reminds us that our loved ones are with us always. Hopefully, I will remember Della's words when I suffer a loss of my own. Thank you, Della, for sharing this most personal account. I received this book in return for an honest review.

At the end of the book, the author includes a way to contact her for additional information or learning, I thought this was very thoughtful. This book is 126 pages, is a fast read, and is laid out so you can easily go back to a particular part. There are a few things in the book that the author believes in that I personally do not, but with that being said, there are a lot more beneficial things in the book that do could help you in dealing with the loss of a loved one. I read this on my kindle, but this is one book I will get in paperback. Thank you to Mrs. Temple for gifting this book to me in exchange for an honest review. My opinions are my own and are a reflection of my personal experiences while reading the book.

    One of my best friends lost her son in an accident and I felt the terrible anguish she and her family faced.

    Excellent! Really! I read the book in one afternoon and plan to reread it again in a day or so. We lost our daughter five years ago and I quite honestly didn't think another book on grief could possibly be necessary or even begin to help me. The meditations are helpful and I plan to use them, but reading Della Temple's journey from shock at hearing her son had died through Thanksgiving, Christmas and family celebrations that are huge reminders of the loss helped me understand some of my thoughts Excellent! Really! I read the book in one afternoon and plan to reread it again in a day or so. We lost our daughter five years ago and I quite honestly didn't think another book on grief could possibly be necessary or even begin to help me. The meditations are helpful and I plan to use them, but reading Della Temple's journey from shock at hearing her son had died through Thanksgiving, Christmas and family celebrations that are huge reminders of the loss helped me understand some of my thoughts. I learned in reading this short book, that I must think more about myself and less about others when they talk about our Jan. I have been so aware about how others feel when we talk about her and now I see it is me I should be nurturing. I've gone about this wrong in some ways. I am changing finally. Thank you Della Temple. I will share this book with others and make sure if another good friend loses a loved one, I will make this a gift to them ... probably with a red rose. I received a free copy of the book in exchange for an honest review..

    I lost my father over a year ago, my grief is still very painful to this day, the edges of my grief are starting to heal, but deep down inside I am still healing from the sudden loss of my father. With Della book I feel I am able to deal with some of the painful grief differently. I am seeing, from reading Della book, a new light on how to deal with my grief. The one thing I wish I could really experience is how Della is able to feel her son's spirit in her heart and hear him in her mind. I miss I lost my father over a year ago, my grief is still very painful to this day, the edges of my grief are starting to heal, but deep down inside I am still healing from the sudden loss of my father. With Della book I feel I am able to deal with some of the painful grief differently. I am seeing, from reading Della book, a new light on how to deal with my grief. The one thing I wish I could really experience is how Della is able to feel her son's spirit in her heart and hear him in her mind. I miss my Dad so much, I just wish I could hear his a voice in my head at least when I talk to him in my head. I wish I could know if he is hearing me that he would send a sign he heard me. I am trying some of the meditating exercises in Della's book, one healing meditating exercise I will try now is meditating for 5 minutes a day trying to ground myself to the core of the earth.There are several healing meditating exercises you can use depending on how you are feeling each day, I will try them as time goes by when I feel a certain meditating exercise will help me. I know one of the hardest part of grief is when the holidays come up. We lit a blessed candle from church with his name on it and set it on the dinner table whilst we ate dinner as a family, we opened Christmas presents, then we said a prayer for our Dad. I try to remember I WILL see my Dad again someday in heaven, plus I know my mother (she is still living today, 84 years young) will be there also to welcome me.

    This book has been on my TBR pile for a while now, and just when I started to read it, I was during a loss of a family member. It seemed to fit perfectly with my feelings as i started to read it, so much that it felt I was meant to read it at that time. Temple shares her grief and pain, and yes, the two are different and separate. Anyone who has ever lost someone close to them, can relate to the book, and relate to the feelings of deep grief, and it does not need to be fresh.

Anyone who has ever lost someone close to them, can relate to the book, and relate to the feelings of deep grief, and it does not need to be fresh. Though everyone feels grief, each individual's feelings is their own and not all are the same. There is a way to deal with grief and the pain. This book is poignant, uplifting and sad all at the same time. It's the kind of book that will be read from beginning to end in one sitting.
