A Letter to Heaven: Communicating with Loved Ones Passed

What if you sent a letter to heaven? Would you expect to get a response? If you have ever lost a dear family member, you may have prayed or talked to his or her soul but wondered whether your communications were received. The fact is, when any of our loved ones wish to communicate or make contact with us from the spirit world, they will always find a way.
A prayer of hope, a letter of love, and a lot of faith reinforced my own belief in the power of our loving mothers to touch us from the spirit world. “Mother’s Day” is a true-life story from Spirit of Love concerning an astounding orchestration of events that took place in the spirit world to make sure a mother’s communication would be received by her family. The day this story began, I was conducting a workshop in Southern California while my own mother’s funeral was being held in New Zealand. I fought back the tears as I began speaking to the group, knowing I was in the right place at the right time to pass on messages from the spirit world.
Late in the afternoon, my dear friend Corinn handed me a tattered envelope, found the day before by her sons while exploring their mountain property in a remote desert area some distance from Los Angeles. As I opened the letter, its contents took me by surprise: loving messages spilled out from a family that had lost their mother. Daughters, sons-in-law, grandchildren—all poured forth from their hearts how much they missed and loved Luanne, the mother. It was dated Mother’s Day, with no year—yet this was October 1996. I felt deep within my heart the possibility of a beautiful sequence of events.
“What do you make of this, Jenny?” asked Corinn. She pointed out a return address scrawled faintly on the weather-beaten envelope, and a hole punched in its corner. Had the note been attached to a balloon? I wondered.
“Jenny, the letter is from Newport Beach, very near you in Laguna Beach,” Corinn pointed out. “Don’t you think this is all rather more than a mere coincidence?” She offered to write back to the family, and I suggested she enclose a copy of my book, Through the Eyes of Spirit, and invite them for a complimentary reading. Corinn did so the next day.
Days later, the phone rang, and I found myself speaking with Nancy, Luann’s daughter. She was overwhelmed with joy and emotion. Gratefully, tearfully, she explained the missing links in the story and accepted my invitation. It was a wondrous strand of events, set in motion by events on the earth plane but fulfilled and manifested only by help from the spirit realm.
It seemed that this letter had been sent on Mother’s Day, over five months previously, from Newport Beach, California, tied to several colored balloons. It had traveled over freeways, suburbs, and an entire mountain range—and had landed and survived intact on Corinn’s property in Pinon Hills, nearly one hundred miles away from its point of origin.
What are the chances of such an event? After all, when you write a letter to your mom who has recently passed over and send it up on several balloons, do you really expect to receive a letter in return, a medium’s book, and an invitation for a communication with the spirit world?
Especially when the medium has only just arrived in the country and traveled all the way from New Zealand!
Message From Beyond
Nancy and her family never dreamed they would receive back a sign from their precious mother. Later, after having the honor of reading for Nancy, she turned to me, asking, “Jenny, what was Mom’s real reason for getting in touch with us this way? Was she trying to tell us something else of great importance that we need to know?”
The answer was plain and simple: “Oh, my dear, your mother is telling you that she received your letter and to send her love back to you all. She wants you to know that she is now without pain and suffering and is at peace!”
We marveled at the magical ways our loved ones can find to make contact from the spirit world. We never know when that moment will arrive, or when one of our precious family members will leave the earth plane. Nancy and her entire family’s lives were changed the day they received their “letter back from heaven”—and with it the tangible proof of our eternal and divine connections with our loved ones.
“Mother’s Day” is just one of the many stories in Spirit of Love that will touch your heart, enhance your understanding of life after death, and inspire you with the power to move forward into spiritual pathways of fulfillment.
