The pod is taking a little hiatus in order to reformat and regroup. I also am in need of a little rest while growing this tiny human! Pregnancy has been tougher than I anticipated this go around and the pod has been a challenge to keep up with. Not to worry, I will be back!

Premonition can be both wildly exciting or anxiety inducing depending on what the message is. I’ve certainly felt both feelings over the past several months. On the heels of last week and resharing an episode about signs from loved ones, I’m sharing a couple more personal stories of life recently and the signs and messages that were presented to me. I detail my own journey with pregnancy and loss, how I’ve coped, allowing myself to feel the feels, why I felt angry with my dad, and messages from a medium!
GRAB MY GRIEF RESOURCE GUIDE!
Are you a believer in signs? A butterfly, a coin, a rainbow, or something completely random, that immediately makes you think of your loved one above. In this previously aired episode, Jessica Hersh opens up about her grief journey and lessons she’s learned after the death of her mother Sarajane from cancer in 2016. We discuss key points of the book “Signs: The Secret Language of the Universe” by Laura Lynne Jackson. I also share my own story of signs and a few from SSFYL listeners!
We often talk about how critical it is to have support when it comes to grief yet support and asking for help is still often stigmatized in our society. When Candyce Ossefort-Russell experienced the sudden loss of her husband at the age of 30, she decided to become the therapist that she once needed. As an LPC-S, Candyce offers insights about grief, being a widow, and other painful emotions from a unique blend of personal and professional experience. She has extensively explored psychological, spiritual, and scientific perspectives of suffering and transformation for 30 years and pairs her knowledge with being a writer, trainer, and speaker.
Reid Peterson is no stranger to grief and has had several, very different experiences with loss in his lifetime. Reid experienced death first at the age of 10 when a friend and classmate died of spinal meningitis. He went on to lose his biological father to suicide in 2006 and his stepfather to cancer in 2016. He felt compelled to help the grieving find peace and purpose after loss. Reid achieved a Masters Degree in Transpersonal Psychology from the Institute of Transpersonal Psychology in 2007 and is certified in Death & Grief Studies by the Center for Loss & Life Transition.
I speak with Candice Bock, a mom from New Jersey who lost her son in a tragic accident. While speaking with her, I quickly realized this wasn’t a typical interview. The emotion, the story, and the inspirational messages lent themselves to a different style of episode that I hope you’ll enjoy. After losing six-year old Edmond, Candice went through a myriad of grief and since then has not only been able to grow immensely herself but also teach others to grow from their own adversities. She started
This week’s episode is a bit of a mixed bag where I sit down solo to share what’s going on lately. I start with how I’ve been dealing amidst year five of my dad’s death anniversary as well as a part of my conversation with last week’s guest, Rebecca Soffer in regards to gifting after grief. Edible Arrangements are OUT and intentional, useful gifts are IN! Episode Highlights: The five particular days that sit with me and weigh heavier than the others around my dad’s death anniversary How grief wa
Dying is a fact of life. While emotional, there are certain logistics and practicalities that have to be dealt with: cremation versus burial, financial obligations, physical belongings, and the list goes on. This week, I’m joined by Cianna Stewart who also has a podcast on death and grief. Cianna hosts Dying Kindness, a podcast for people who are going to die someday (hint: that’s you and me, both) with the goal of helping people make key decisions now in order to be more kind to those they’ll l
