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!
Episode Highlights:
  • Jessica’s grief path and what it was like living in a hospital for 3 months while her mother was dying
  • How you can create positive memories if you’re in the position of watching a loved one decline
  • Seeing the signs: ghost calls, coins, music and animals
  • Skepticism to signs and taking them as concretely or loosely as you’d like
  • Stories of signs from listeners
