What Happens When A Person “Dies”?
When a person dies, or transitions out of the body and back into purely spirit form, their soul travels back to the spirit world. Ideally, they would arrive immediately in a place that is pure Light, pure Love, heavenly, and what we sometimes refer to as “Home.” Yet this is not necessarily the case. Instead, many things can happen.
When a soul is accustomed to having a physical body, then re-entry into the spirit world can be confusing. This can make the soul feel disoriented and even fearful. Such disorientation may prevent the soul from noticing in which direction to travel in order to reach their next destination.
The spirit world is filled, of course, with other spirits, and some of these are not benevolent. Indeed, some are actively seeking to capitalize on a soul’s confusion.
As well, if a soul owes a debt, or still needs to repay some karma, then they may need to clear their karmic account before being permitted to return Home. Indeed, such souls often return to the cycle of reincarnation on Earth, or travel to other realms in order to continue their journey.
It is also possible that a soul needs to pause, rest, and reflect on where they wish their next destination to be. In such cases, the soul does not necessarily want to go Home immediately.
There are many possibilities about what a soul, newly transitioned out of its physical body, might encounter in the world of spirit. It is therefore helpful to them to have a guide, a mediator, and a healer ensuring that their journey is as smooth and gentle as possible; this is what a Psychopomp does.
What Is Psychopomp?
The word Psychopomp derives from the Greek word psuchopompos, which translates to “guide of souls.” In ancient mythology, we find many stories of spirit guides or gods who have helped people reach heaven or the “land of the dead.” Well known Psychopomps include Archangel Azrael, the god Mercury, the god Hermes, the goddess Hecate, an aspect of Lord Shiva, the Valkyries of Norse folklore, and the Egyptian god Anubis. In modern times, much Psychopomp is done by shamans and energy healers.
Psychopomp is therefore a form of Energy Healing, but done specifically for a newly transitioned soul, with the purpose of ensuring that they are safe and healthy, and arrive at their next destination smoothly.
Please note that each soul’s situation is unique. A soul does not always return Home after just one session or in just one day. Jen cannot guarantee that she will be able to transport your loved one Home; only that she will do her best and inform you of the results.
Why Would I Order A Session Of Psychopomp?
Assisting our departed loved one in this particular manner is one of the last things that can be done to honor and respect them. It is beneficial for them in a deeply meaningful way. If their soul needs some healing, they will receive healing. If their soul has left a piece of them behind here on Earth, then that energy will be recovered and restored to them. And if they have feelings of guilt or sadness about having left, then those feelings can be dealt with, enabling them to move freely onward.
Psychopomp also assists our own process of grieving: We take comfort in knowing that our loved one is okay and has safely made it home; we may receive a message from them during the Psychopomp session; and much of the emotions surrounding the death is cleared away, so that our connection with our loved one is cleaner and more apparent.
Jen performs Psychopomp within the first 14 days after a soul’s transition; within this window, the soul is generally still in its temporary space of transition. After this time has passed, to get the peace, healing, and clean energy that you seek, it is best to do a personal appointment with Jen for energy healing for yourself. During these appointments, your loved one will likely show up, and any healing done on you has the potential to benefit them as well.
Jen offers free 15-minute consultations by phone to new clients, to answer their questions before they commit to ordering a service. If this would help you feel more comfortable about ordering Psychopomp, then you may book your consult here.
