Dr. Mark Pitstick and his book 'SoulProof'

Evolved Souls Don’t Need Long Earthly Lives
May 2015  Q & A

by Mark Pitstick, MA, DC
Welcome to the Helping Parents Heal Q & A.  I recommend that you read the foundational articles that form a basis for my answers.  Links to those are located at the bottom of my website home page under Soul Proof Articles.  You can also read them on the Helping Parents Heal website under Healing Articles by Dr. Pitstick.
Q: My 23 year-old son hung himself last year.  You say I will be with him in spirit again someday, but that's not really a comfort to me. I don't want to be some speck of energy next to my son.  I want to hug him, have fun with him, joke around like we used to.

If God is so loving, how could He be so cruel to give me this child that I carried for nine months, watched him grow for twenty-three years, and loved him more everyday . . .  only to be taken away from me and change my life forever? 
He was my whole world.  I will never be the same.  I will never be happy again.  I have no one to talk to about this because they either don't want to hear it or they just don't care.  So I isolate myself and constantly try to figure out why my son would kill himself. – Debra

A: Debra, this is a very tough one.  No one is denying that.  And yet, you have the ability to turn this—at least from an earthly perspective—horrible tragedy into a giant victory and blessing.  You can sense his presence now or continue to live in darkness.  Which fork in the road will you choose?

When we drop our bodies, we’re not just specks of energy.  We are everything we are now and much more.  When you cross over, you and your son can have physical appearing bodies for as long as you want and need.  You can hug for 2000 years—and even hug until your arms fall off—but, at some point, you’ll get caught up and will be ready to do something else.  That’s when you can explore the other 99.9% of who you are and who he is. 

By the way, it’s an illusion that we are just physical bodies while on Earth.  In truth, we are beings of energy and light with mostly space in between whirling atoms.  It just appears that we are solid beings because our brains and senses are so limited in perceiving the wholeness of reality.  While in a physical realm, people usually become so identified with and enamored of the body, but that’s a mere fraction of who and what you and everyone else are. 
So if you enjoyed hugging and being with your son in this temporary and illusory place, wait until you experience your reunion in the really real place. 
As for your question, “If God is so loving . . . “ please read the following articles to remind your self about who and what God and humans are.  Then reexamine your question.
- What Is God Really Like?
- The Nature of Humans

- Why Did God Take My Child?
After reading these, you’ll hopefully recall that you and your son are part of God.  You, as souls, likely planned for an eventuality like his suicide.  That doesn’t mean it was fated or predetermined, but that you both knew that there was a likelihood of that occurring.  Read this article to learn more about the possible reasons why he might have ended his earth-experience: When a Loved One Dies From Suicide

Finally, your last paragraph is so full of gloom and doom . . .  no wonder you feel so low if you are thinking like this each day.  I’m not criticizing, but I am reminding you about what you—at your core—already know: “you reap what you sow; as you think, so shall you be.”  So please, for yourself and the world, begin to upgrade your language, join a bereaved parent’s group, attend an open-minded, love and service-based church, take a walk in nature, do anything to begin ascending from your self-induced hell. 

Below is an excerpt from a bereaved parent’s recent FaceBook post.  It’s a great example of how you can honor your son’s life in some way.
My beautiful daughter Christina passed away tragically and unexpectedly at the age of 22.  She had a beautiful smile and her face glowed. Everyone she met instantly fell in love with her. Chrissy was a gifted artist and photographer. She loved the outdoors and being in nature. She has a kind and gentle soul who made people gravitate to her. In order to ensure her legacy lives on, I decided to form a non-profit in her memory. We want to share her beauty and to raise awareness for Unity Wellness Center, a haven for artists.
Starting a non-profit foundation is just one way to honor your son’s life and start to regain yours.  You could serve others in a community soup kitchen and silently think your son’s name every time you help those in need. 
The next parent’s post illustrates the power of focusing on gratitude for the time you had together. 
My son Jorden died at age 12 due to complications from being born with a neurological condition called Polymicrogyria. His brain did not form properly and he required around the clock care. Even though he had many health issues he was the light of our lives. He never spoke a word but his smile and laughter said everything he needed to say.

This mother’s focus is astounding.  Her son needed constant care, had brain damage, and never said a word.  And yet she saw his light and was grateful for her short time with this special soul.  You can focus on the glass being half-full as well.  It’s a moment-to-moment decision. 

Debra, you deserve to feel happy again and your son wants that too.  And the world needs your greatest gifts and light shining again.  Keep in touch and let me know how it’s going, please.   Blessings, Mark

Q: I lost my son Dadier 5 years ago.  There are days that the pain is so strong.  It’s a different kind of pain—a parent’s grief.  It should not happen this way.  I am sorry for everyone’s loss.  My deepest condolences to all parents and their family and friends.  My love and respect to you all from the bottom of my heart.  Together, we will keep strong.  I may not know you, but I love you all.  My question Is, “How strong are we?”

A: Wow, way to be strong, Sandra.  I was deeply touched by your expressions of love and caring to other bereaved family and friends.  Here are a few loving and caring comments about your note.
First, great job taking in the high road and keeping your heart open despite the pain and sadness.  Your sentence, “I may not know you, but I love you all” is a beautiful example of how suffering can unite us in love. 
Next, you did not lose your son even though it appears that way.  He is very near; that’s why you can feel his presence at times.  “Lose” means you never see someone again, but that’s not the case with Dadier.  It’s as though he’s living in another country and you just can’t see him for a while.  But someday you will see each other again.  So try to drop the word ‘lose’ and instead use, “my son Dadier passed on/graduated/transitioned/ changed worlds.”  Those terms more accurately describe what really happened and will make you feel better. 
Finally, I love your question “How strong are we?”  You’re question highlights one of the main reasons why we, as souls, choose to endure suffering.  Tough times build spiritual muscles just as heavy weights build physical muscles.  That’s why you hear sayings like, “That which does not kill me makes me stronger” or “the strongest metals have endured the hottest fires.”  It’s true. 

Suffering the death of a child can help you grow in ways that aren’t possible if life is free and easy.  It’s a great deal when you remember four things:
1. This earthly life—even if you live to 100—is just a blink of an eye in the span of eternity

2. No one really dies.  Just the physical body ends.  The other 99.999% of Dadier is alive and well. 
3.  We each are part of God/Source Energy/the Light right now and always will be.  As such, what really can go wrong? 
4. You, as a soul, chose to be his mother and knew that you would likely go through significant suffering as a result.  And you, as a soul, also knew it would be worth it for the growth and service that resulted. 
I hope you can remember the big picture, at least a little, because it makes all the difference in the world.   Love and Light, Mark

The first meeting I knew this is what would work for me.  I have enjoyed all the support, love and hope that is shared at every meeting. I got a new job in DC in Dec 2013 and I now want to not only support this wonderful non-profit, as it has given me so much help in my grief, but to help others heal as well.

Nancy Courtmanche-Eureka, CA
The loss of my son Robb, 29, has made me painfully aware of the need for parents to have a group setting that is safe and confidential. Healing occurs. Out of my loss I dedicated myself to service for others in volunteer Hospice patient care and grief support, as a Hospital Chaplain, and healing work.  This has prepared me to lead an HPH group now.

Through the Eyes of a Sibling - Surviving the Passing of a Loved One
Meru Jacoby

Elodie Jacoby and her brother Meru

At the age of five I lost my place as an older sister and became an only child. The event of my brother's passing fragmented my nuclear family of four into two unequal units. Yet, even though Meru’s death altered the course of my life forever, I would hesitate to say it was all for the worse. In retrospect I recognise that his 8-month hiatus in our lives was able to provide me with an emotional insight into humanity that some people can live a whole lifetime without grasping. Because of Meru I choose not to ponder the uncertainty of death as I accept that it is indeed a natural process that is not to be feared.

While the events were nevertheless traumatic I recognise that I did not deal with the same emotional ‘what ifs’ that the adults around me experienced. The relationship between a parent and a child is inherently different than that between two siblings. Children are remarkably resilient and Meru’s passing became a fact of my life that I was willing to accept.

Throughout the grieving process I was made to feel loved and valued. My family were always open about the events with me and they reassured me that my brother had taken up a place watching over me. In my situation emotional openness was important in de-stigmatising the events. It is a mistake to believe that children cope better when presented with a façade of parental strength; true parental strength shines through establishing a transparent emotional connection between parent, child and the deceased.

While we chose not to have visual reminders of my brother within our living spaces I was always reassured that our home was a place where we could share memories. My parent’s ability to share some of their emotions with me added a valuable dimension to our family dynamic as I came to understand that adults suffer from their own vulnerabilities.  Ultimately these early glimpses into their inner feelings taught me about the value of empathy, love and support.

Sixteen years have passed since Meru’s death. While it is an experience that has shaped me, it is not an experience that defines me. I fully accept his passing; in time I have come to realise that while his physical manifestation is no longer here it does not insinuate that he is absent from my life.  I feel comfort in knowing that his presence coexists with my own presence.

Editor's Note:  Elodie is currently earning a Masters in International Migration and Public Policy at the London School of Economics.  She is a close friend of my daughter, Alix.  

Stories of Validation -

Tracy Venters and her Daughter Jessica

Tracy and Jessica in San Fransisco

My Connection with Jessica

On May 5, 2014, my extremely beautiful, academically gifted and talented daughter took her own life. She was 25. She had a two year old daughter, devoted husband, and family who cherished her dearly. She had been through some traumatic circumstances over the previous year and was suffering from depression.  She was my only daughter, one of two children, and my best friend. Needless to say I was devastated. However, I know this is not the end for the two of us; rather it is a change in the way we now relate.

I have so many signs from Jessica every day. She sends me songs, pictures of herself in the most unique ways, she physically rotated a statue of an angel with bluebirds that represents her many times (she comes to me as a bluebird all the time); in fact we played a game with it to see if she could get it rotated a full 360 degrees in a week’s time before our cleaning person would come on Friday and position it back the “right” way. Eventually she did and after that I moved the statue to another location and we quit “playing”. I could go on and on, however one of the most wondrous messages from her is one she tried to give me a year ago, however I only just now got (duh!) after humbly deciding to start an affiliate group for Helping Parents Heal in the Dallas area.

As part of the process, Elizabeth asked me to sign some paperwork, as well as supply a picture and bio. I really agonized about the bio. I have many versions of bios for my professional life, yet none seemed relevant for this journey. I thought about it late into the night one night. Then, early the next morning I was awakened by a song in my soul:  “You're not alone, I'm with you, I’m lonely up this is a raid, I wanna get it through to you, you’re not alone.” This became part of my bio. Via email, Elizabeth asked me about some words in the song, and only after I reflected on the first time this song had awakened me in this way  did I really understand that I had missed a very obvious and important message from Jessica nearly a year earlier.

Last July, just a few months after Jess transitioned, I got a call my from the wife of an old friend to notify me he had passed away. Pat was a former employee of mine, and over the ensuing years we kept in touch, usually having lunch a couple times a year. When she called me, Pat’s wife also asked me to give the eulogy at his service. I was honored, but also a bit surprised because I mainly knew him through our professional relationship, we didn’t really socialize. However, she said he looked up to me and had wanted me to do this (his death, after a long battle with cancer, was not unexpected).

The memorial service was not until a week or so later. During that time, I really agonized about writing the eulogy. What to say? Was I really the right person given I felt like I was mainly his old boss? And I was going through such tremendous grief of my own, and totally overwhelmed at work, etc. One night I was up until the wee hours, yet again, barely able to get off the floor under the weight of everything I was going through. I finally crawled into bed. Then at 5am I was suddenly awakened with a song by Mavis Staples literally boring through me: “You're not alone, I'm with you, I’m lonely up this is a raid, I wanna get it through to you, you’re not alone.”  Instantly, I knew it was Jessica.

I got right up and wrote an amazing tribute to Pat. The words just poured from pen to paper. After I delivered the eulogy at his service, so many people came up to me and told me how moving it was…perhaps the most touching was his mother who hugged me and thanked and said she will never forget “those beautiful things you said about my son”.
Here’s the thing: it was Jessica writing those words and in them she had her own messages for me. My eulogy said: “ Pat fought long and hard to be here for his family and to pursue life. His Spirit was willing but in the end the disease claimed his body.” What Jessica wanted me to know was that she too fought long and hard to be here however in the end the depression she had battled so long claimed her body.

My eulogy for Pat recounted funny stories, memories of a business trip we took together to Rome and the numerous new business ideas he shared with me, so therefore I ended with this: “So what can we take away from this celebration of Pat's life? What can we make of having known him in life and at his death? I would say this: Pursue your interests whatever they may be... climbing a certain mountain or climbing the 551 steps to the top of the Dome at the Vatican, taking up a new hobby, or opening up a food truck business. Don't let the circumstances that make up your life story get in the way or be your excuse...whether circumstances of illness, or inconvenience, or fear. Never stop dreaming up new ideas or learning new songs. In this way, we can honor the life and the memory of Patrick.”

What Jessica had tried to tell me nearly a year ago was that the way that I can honor HER is to never stop living…keep climbing…keep singing new songs. I didn’t really get that the message was meant for me a year ago, so she found a way to bring it back around with the song once again and the bio.

I miss Jessica’s physical presence every single day. I want to hug her, text her, see her face light up when I spoil her at the mall. However that is to be no more. Yet she is here. And she lets me know it every day. “Open up this is a raid! I wanna get it through to’re not alone! I’m gonna get it through to you… you’re not alone!”

-Tracy Venters

We are happy to announce that Tracy will starting a new affiliate group for Helping Parents Heal in Dallas, Texas.  Please read more about Tracy in her bio below:

My quest for the true nature of life and Spirit began in my late 20s. Ironically, this journey began after being challenged by my minister on my belief that being a good a Christian was not enough to protect my children from harm any more than those of the most hardened "sinner". Eventually I came to learn that life as we know it is just a blink of the eye, our souls live forever. Then the unthinkable happened - I lost my beautiful daughter Jessica, my best friend. I spent weeks barely existing, wishing I could be with her. Early one morning, after a particularly bad night, I was jarred awake by a song pounding into my soul: “You're not alone, I'm with you, I'm going to get up this is a raid, I'm going to get it through to you, you’re not alone.” This was the first of many signs from Jessica, the renewal of our relationship and beginning of my healing. It is my fervent desire to help other parents heal through connecting with their own children who now soar on the Other Side.

Would you like to share a story of validation or healing with other Parents? 

We are all able to heal when we share personal stories about our children with others.  Moreover, everyone benefits from validations that we receive from our children.  We love to hear about them!  If you have a story that you would like to share about your child or about your sibling who has passed, please let us know and we will include it in a future newsletter.  Please send it to Elizabeth Boisson at 

Also, if you have not yet done so, please send me your child's full name, Birthday and Angel Date so that I can add him or her to our list of children on our Facebook Site. We pay tribute to our children on their special dates with a favorite photo and a description of their lives.  Please send all information to Elizabeth at
