Since the recent death of Emile Jean Pin, her beloved husband of 27 years, she has discovered that relationships do not end in death. His miraculous manifestations, often in front of witnesses, have proven to her that there is life after life. Jean has asked her to tell their story to ease the two greatest and most universal fears: that of loving and losing and that of death and dying. Her experiences with him have led her to develop a groundbreaking form of grief therapy that diverges from the traditional Western approach (grieve, let go, and move on). By contrast, she combines her proven conflict resolution method with after death communication, offering an unprecedented method for reconnecting and, if needed, making peace with the deceased. Her new book, Love Never Dies: How to Reconnect and Make Peace with the Deceased will be published by Hay House.
Most couples would say that they loved each other deeply at the beginning of their union. So why do so many couples fall out of love? The answer lies in the fact that conflict and the angry feelings that go with it are inevitable in intimate relationships. Because improperly handled anger is the number one killer of love, most couples end up falling out of love because of their mishandled anger. In this blog, I show you how to harness this powerful force and transform it into constructive communications that deepen rather than destroy your bond.
