I’ll share one of my experiences - one of my parents was ill. I did a lot of healing work (that was my main focus back then, still in a love & light phase) and also asked, begged, harasssed my spirits to tell me if they were about to die.
The answer I got was this: “(Parent’s name) will be with you for as long as you need them.”
I kept asking, will they die, is this it, can I save them, and got nothing from every source except versions of the same answer.
They made a slight recovery, then died suddenly.
And then became one of my guides.
So the moral of the story there is, what spirits see and tell you isn’t identical to the way you as a human perceive the events unfolding.
On the human level, I was angry that beings I trusted hadn’t told me, as a healer I was furious that I couldn’t fix things, make things right, but in reality, it was time for my parent to move on to a different role - still in my life to a large extent, but different.
I grew up a lot as a result of that, and looking back now, I don’t think I’d be in as good a place in my life if they hadn’t died, which isn’t the same as me saying it was a “good” thing, but I’m being brutally honest, and believe me this isn’t easy to even share about.
And the healing I did before they died, in hopes of preventing it, was also part of the equation because it meant that my parent had a better death and consequently better energy levels (or whatever you want to call that) to guide me afterwards - it strengthened that link. Part of it involved me reconciling some of the problems we’d had when I was younger, and being able to pass on with the slate completely wiped, ahead of time, also benefitted the person.
But damn, did I feel betrayed, gutted, furious, and utterly inadequate for a while there.
I don’t know what’s going on in E.A.'s life but based on my own experience, sometimes things have to work out in a way we don’t like (at the time) in order for our souls and the souls of other people around us, living and dead, to evolve.
