Understanding Death

Death is when the body stops breathing and the blood stops pumping, and the brain activity is no longer there. Spiritual death is when the body dies, and the soul leaves and the spirit goes to the after place. Some believe in reincarnation and others believe that there is a heaven and a hell. People that believe in reincarnation believe that you can keep talking and communicating with someone after they have left their body and that their spirit can visit them.

Superstitions About Death

Some believe that death comes in three’s. Sometimes this happens but sometimes it doesn’t. This is just something that is a superstition and if you see this situation in your life then you can know that statistically, there is no proof that this is true.

Can Dead People Feel?

Death of something doesn’t have to be physical death and it can be death of a friendship or other kind of relationship. With this kind of death, you can still talk to that person if you make an effort. Those that want to talk to those that have physically died will do what it takes sometimes to reach out to the dead.

Some people believe that their dead loved ones can feel them and can feel love after they died. This is just one of the beliefs that people have. Some believe that the dead still have a real connection with those that are living.

In parts of America and in China, there are beliefs that the dead spirits will visit homes. Even in Mexico, this is a special day, “The Day of the Dead,” that people believe that the spirits come to visit during that time.

In the British Isles and in the United States, people celebrate Halloween or Samhain, which is a time that they believe that the veil between death and life is open, and this is a time that the spirits can come.

There are different beliefs when it comes to people dying and communicating with the dead. While some believe that this is real and you can do that, others believe that you should show your respect to the dead and let them move on to the afterlife.

What Happens When Your Spouse Dies?

People that have been married for a long or even short times often have a hard time moving on after their loved one dies. When this happens, some people think that they can find love again, but others will end up not dating because they want to keep the memory of their spouse alive with them.

Saying goodbye to someone that you have been with for a long time can be hard and it can be hard to think of being with someone new. Some even think of this as cheating. After someone dies, it can be hard to decide if you want to find a new spouse or if you would be better off without love.

Having children with your spouse that dies might make it harder to find a new spouse, but you can always share your love with your family and with your friends. You can share the love of people even if it isn’t romantic love. This is a love that is needed when someone dies.

Your spouse would want you to be happy even if it meant that you would find someone else to love.

Tarot Cards

If you like getting tarot card readings, there is one card that might come up that can make you fearful. That is the Death card. This card doesn’t mean a physical death, but it can mean that some kind of death is coming in your life such as death of a job or death of finances. The Death card can have different meanings depending on if it is right side up or reversed.

  • Death Card Right Side Up

When the Death card is right side up, it can mean that you need to let go of the past and be ready for changes. Just like a tree dies and loses its leaves, you can lose something but then something better can come back later.

You need to let growth come and get rid of old patterns that are holding you back. If your relationship has grown cold, it might be a time to break up with them and to try to find happiness in someone else.

  • Death Card Reversed

The Death card reversed can mean that you haven’t moved on or you haven’t changed, and you are holding up things that are necessary to better your life. Change can be scary and when change comes in relationships or in finances, it can be even scarier. It is okay to fear change but that doesn’t mean that you don’t embrace it.
