There is No Death

Updated on September 7, 2011

Early 4 AM my 6 month old daughter with happy delight was not at all sleepy. She played on the un-lit living room floor while I sat nearby half awake admiring her sweet play. This early morning play will be a memory I will never forget. I felt a light tickle at the crown of my head and a warmth in my whole body that can only be described as love and divine grace. With open eyes, the darkened room filled with a luminous nectar of golden amber rain between me and my daughter. In that moment I was open to this divine loving presence.

Later that same day mid-morning, I received a frantic call from my sister while I was at the bank. My sister informed me that my grandmother had passed. As I walked to the car pushing my daughter's stroller stunned with the sudden news the amazing awe of the early morning memory flooded my mind and heart. I have never experienced anything of this sort before but without a doubt that loving presence of grace I felt was my grandmother. My grandmother never did meet my daughter which I named after her. I felt the sadness and the amazement of the moment.

My grandmother was a very dynamic educator with a PhD in nursing. At age 75 she continued her education further to become a nurse practitioner because she did not know the word retirement. She gave me strength, love of education, strong work ethic, love of service, and enjoyment of life. Her strong love for life was filled with work and play. My grandmother worked to play, she would say. Her passing was unexpected.

At the funeral I remember her friends from her church run to my side while I was holding my daughter. They asked if they could help watch her while I ate the lovely meal the church prepared prior to the funeral. As I walked away I witnessed my grandmother's friends smiling with joy holding my daughter. I could see a golden lit arc like a crescent moon around them. I believe that glowing light or aura was my grandmother introducing her great-granddaughter who she has been bragging about for 6 months by pictures. The appearance warmed my heart. I began to realize the we are more than our body.

I did see her one last time about a week after her death. I was talking to my mother on the cell phone about my grandmother. We became quiet. I could feel her presence once again with healing warmth and gentle tears. Over my right shoulder the golden amber luminous glow formed into my grandmother's form. Oh. No words describe this peace. I told my mother what I saw and though she could not see anything she could feel the same warmth. I was also wearing my grandmother's watch, and the time stopped. The battery wore out at the exact time I saw my grandmother's light body.

I have never seen that light or aura again. Occasionally I will have a dream. One dream I laugh at was one with my grandmother telling me to take ascorbic acid. I was puzzled because I had never really heard that term before. I looked it up and learned it was Vitamin C. Of course my grandmother would be telling me to take my vitamins but in her own terminology.

I have always heard stories about people seeing apparitions. I have not really had an opinion either way, but I have had an attitude of open heart open mind. Yes our body will someday die, but for sometime after the death of our body it seems to continue. Perhaps we say our last good bye or let go the earthy attachments. Our spirit or essence lives in a way science cannot measure. I now believe there is no death.

      Dyhannah, Such a blessing to experience the immediacy of your grandmother's presence. Your lovely description conveys vividly and gently that love does not die because in love there is no death. Such a beautiful affirmation and gift from your grandmother for you, for your daughter, for anyone who opens their heart to this experience. Awesome and beautiful.

      Denise, I will have to read your hub on Presence. Thanks for all the links and information. I am really open minded and love exploring. The soul's essence is particularly interesting to me, and I will look up the book you listed.

      Dyhannah, you are describing very beautifully the Presence that is in each of us. I have just written a Hub about this Presence that you mention here.

      Your recount of your day, beginning with your daughter, so full of life, and ending with the funeral is touching. What is more amazing to me is the clean, precise description of your experience in this amber light. It is clear to me that this touch that you felt at the crown of your head, the warmth that spread through your body, the amber filled room, was all part of this Grace of Presence - the Essence of Love.

      I have experienced it many times. I am struck by your sharp observation and discernment of your experience. I encourage you, if you are not already doing so, to continue this exploration of these experiences. You may be interested in the websight of the spiritual group I follow: or These are two websites that may pique your curiousity about this phenomenon.

      At the end of the hub I wrote re: a spiritual person, I listed several books available for reading. One I did not list is called: Spacecruiser Inquiry by A. H. Almaas Mind you, it is NOT a sci fi book, it is a spiritual book describing our soul's essence.

      I was deeply touched by this particular Hub and voted it up. Your grandmother sounds like she was an awesome woman and role model for many. I am looking forward to reading more of your observations and sharing...

      Ok now I'm in tears. I remember I took that picture. Gig em aggies and hook em horns. Such a great moment. Love your hub page sis. I have a similar moment the night she passed away. I woke up at around 2 because I finger hurt. I had to take off my ring and put it on another finger. Never had a taken it off before. Strange. It was grandmothers ring. Didn't make since till the next day. She was saying goodbye.
