I feel like I'm going crazy : (

    First I'm sorry to put the title the way that I did.... but that's how I feel. I am not one to sugarcoat things. I have always been very intuitive and definitely an empath. Working a busy lifestyle in Corporate America I haven't had the time to figure out all my other gifts and to focus on them. Recently someone in my family passed away very dear to me and I am having a very hard time.
    I feel like that person is around me and has not gone to the light. I get an upsetting sad almost hopeless feeling and I don't know what to do. I can't talk to my friends or family I don't want to upset them more.
    I guess I was just wondering if someone could tell me if that person is still here .... not able to move on? I don't understand why I feel that. On the 11th the person will be gone for a month. I'm purposely not putting who it is in case they come across to someone on here.

    I just want my heart to feel settled I don't like the way I feel right now. I feel like if the person is not in peace I am not in peace if that makes sense. I'm fighting my tears coming out right now because I've also heard if you cry and you are upset you will not let their soul settle is it me that's keeping them here??
    I feel so lost

    Welcome to ALF! I wish I could give you some assurances but I'm very new at this myself. You'll be hearing from others here I'm sure. However, I think it's safe to say that your tears are just a normal part of grieving and they are not what's keeping your family member here. It might just feel to him/her that there is still some unfinished business to attend to before moving on...…..

    I don't know if there is an afterlife, but if there is then I tend to agree with pandora's post/assessment. Please do not feel guilty; I don't think your loved one would still be here if s/he didn't want to be.

    Thank you both... I'm not sure why I'm feeling this way. I do dream about the person all the time. And I knew they died before I was told.
    I just knew..... what are your thoughts about Consulting a medium?

    welcome to ALF :)

    If you're as sensitive as you suggest then you may be picking up on the - transient - emotions of the family member who has passed over. Perhaps the best you can do is to send out your love to the person and tell her/him you are thinking of them, that they're not alone. Speak out loud or do it in your thoughts - whichever one feels best for you personally. This may feel weird but can help both her/him and yoursel to accept the situation. There likely is no point in speaking to other family unless you know that they feel similarly to yourself.

    Individuals who have passed are no on ther own - around them will be others to help them achieve their return to life outside of the physical body. I can't tell you if he/she is still where you think and I would be cautious about asking others. Whatever their answer how would it change anything?

    You're trapped between a rock and a hard place. Your spiritual/emotional understanding doesn't enable you to help directly and leaves you unsettled and anxious. It's something that undeveloped sensitives often experience based on accounts I've read. BUT the situation of your family member is not down to any action or any omission on your part. You have NO responsibility for their situation or for trying to remedy it.

    ABSOLUTELY NOT! You'll hear all kinds of stuff from all kinds of people, mostly from those with little understanding, evident when they say such things. Your emotions, your tears are a result of how you sense your family member feels. Your tears and emotions ARE NOT ITS CAUSE.

    I'm sorry to read this. I think you'll feel less lost if you can find some time to stay with ALF and with our folk who understand your position and empathise.
