An email from Tobie Hewitt of Rochester, New York:
I went to The Hand on the Mirror website to post this email to you when I saw that your husband had transitioned to the other side. I am very sorry for your loss and send you healing, peace, light, and love as you traverse this bend in your path. I have decided to send on the letter below in hopes that you find some comfort in further confirmation that “death” is not an ending, just a move to new surroundings.
After hearing your story on CBS Sunday Morning, it was with great interest that I read your excellent book. As you shared your walk through that difficult and edifying journey, I became more and more aware that my story is one you might appreciate. You see, I have spent my entire life as a mystic and a writer.
As a spiritual girl in a physical world, I have dedicated my life to helping others realize that they are spirits, embodied on this earth to learn from the experience and that they do not need to fear the transition known as death. By spreading this awareness, I hope to contribute to a more peaceful and cohesive world.
I write a daily blog (tobiehewitt.wordpress.com) to share with others ways in which they, too, can live a more “spirited life.” I have written several books on this topic. You might find my autobiographical book, Simple Gifts: Living a Spirited Life, interesting in light of your quest for information and truth about our survival after the transition known as “death.”
When my father, a scientist, passed away, his belief was that death was an end, that there was nothing after the final breath. An hour and a half after he transitioned, he started communicating with me in very concrete and recognizable ways. My mother, who had been in total agreement with my father’s belief that death was the end, sent, after her recent passing, a message through a medium that contained very specific and verifiable information that could not have come from any other source.
My entire life has been surrounded by the reality of the spiritual world. I look forward to sharing my journey with you.
