I was wondering if someone can help me.
A close friend of mine (who is generally fairly skeptical) reached out on fbook asking if anyone could recommend a clairvoyant. She privately confessed that she is struggling to move on from the death of her beloved grandmother a year ago. She said that she can’t explain it, but that she regularly and with certainty “feels her grandmother’s presence” around or nearby her. She feels that this is interfering with her grieving process.
She is the first to admit that seeking out a clairvoyant is completely out of character, but she just feels so desperate and doesn’t really know how to start exploring what she is going through. She’s not completely off the deep end, and said that she is definitely also going to speak to her psychologist about it. If she wasn’t already generally pretty skeptical, and if she didn’t come to me specifically asking for my very honest opinion and encouraging me to look into the science when I brought it up I wouldn’t touch this situation with a ten foot pole. I did tell her that she might not be ready to let go of these feelings so if she changes her mind about me looking into the science of it, all she has to do is let me know and I will support her regardless.
I’ll bet my bottom dollar that science has something to say about feelings like this, even if it’s nothing terribly comprehensive or conclusive. I’m a bit hesitant to go Googling away blindly though, as I’m sure much internet discussion on the topic is seeped in serious Woo. Does anyone have suggestions of reputable places to start looking for real answers? There must be some sort of neurology or psychology which looks at grief and the perception of a loved one’s “spirit”. Even if people could just point me in the direction of reputable research and theories on the subject it would be really helpful.
