Why Does God Take Our Loved Ones From Us?

Sometimes when our loved ones pass, we feel as though God has taken them from us.  We may feel like God has singled us out or punished us by taking our loved ones from the Earth plane.  These feelings can compound deep grief with strong emotions of anger. Our emotions can create a veil of darkness, blocking us from light that would heal us.

Physical death is a transition. Though their physical bodies are gone, the souls of our loved ones–the essences–live on in the afterlife with God. Our loved ones have simply changed from a physical form to a spiritual one.  This spiritual form allows them to transcend space and be with us when we need help and also be with God in the spirit realm.

When loved ones pass, the souls returns to God and continue to grow and evolve.  God has specific purposes for all souls on Earth.  On the other side, the souls may continue those purposes (if their time was cut short) or some souls will begin new purposes.

Once we understand that our loved ones are still around us as spirits, we can take the steps to continue spiritual relationships.  Only then do we pierce the dark grief clouds allowing rays of light to shine again in our lives.  When we let in the light, God helps heal our grief-stricken hearts with love and illuminates our lives.

God does not take our loved ones from us, nor does God abandon us in our times of sadness.  We are the ones that sometimes shut God out by the darkness of our grief.  God is benevolent, loves us unconditionally, and allows our loved ones to still be with us in spirit form.  This is a magnificent gift, if we are willing to accept it.  Our loved ones are only a thought away from us. We just need to unwrap this gift of spirituality from God.  When we open it, we find the spirits of our loved ones waiting there for us.

Love and light,

    Hi when you say our loved ones are just a thought away do you mean they know when we are thinking about them? What is the spirit world like? Is it a lot different than the physical world?

      One of my close friends passed away in his sleep…not sure of exact cause yet. He was a young man and in Great health. Why did he leave so soon? I’m unsure how to let go…how do I do this and he’s always in my thoughts. I hear his voice ringing in my ears. Can you tell me why?

        I am sorry to hear of your friend’s sudden passing, April. With sudden passings, they leave us with so many open ends and very little closure. You may want to write him a letter and read it a loud. It is a good way to communicate the things you did not get a chance to say to him. When you say you hear his voice ringing in your ears do you mean audibly or in your thoughts? Also, is he saying anything specific to you?

  2. Hello and thank you for your comment. Yes, they always know when we're thinking of them because they're still connected to us in spirit form. The spirit world is vastly different because our loved ones in spirit no longer need the things that apply to a physical body such as sleep, food, clothes, etc. But there is an article on here called “Jobs On The Other Side” and it gives a little more information about what our loved ones do on the other side. Hope this helps.

  3. Do spirits continue to love their soul mate or do they move on and find new love ?

  4. Hi Christina,

    Thank you for your question. I am not sure what you are asking. If you could please clarify, I could give help you with an answer. Are you asking if a spirit will find a new love on the other side rather than staying connected to their love on the Earth plane?

    Love and light,

  5. I would like to know that answer, do they find new love in heaven, or stay connected with us

  6. Hi Farrah,

    Our loved ones always remain connected to us. You may want to read the blog article on here called, “Jobs On The Other Side.” It gives more details about life on the other side. I have shared experiences with clients in which a spouse or loved one that has passed has come through and expressed undying love for the person on the Earth plane. This connection supersedes physical death. I am unaware of any souls finding new souls to love on the other side. If it happens, I have not experienced any evidence of it yet. But I have experienced evidence of souls remaining connected to their loving partners on Earth. I see it everyday.

    Love and light to you always,

    Can we have a spiritual connection to someone we never met in person but watched on tv? There was a man who I really seemed to connect with. He made a positive impact in my life as well as the lives of many others. A friend of mine believes I have a connection to this man. He has come to me in my dreams and said “it's alright we're gonna be together, I love you” and he hugged me. It was so real and vivid. He's even visited my friend in her dreams and has given messages to her for her to give to me. I love him but it's not an obsessed kind of love it's so much more, it's pure and true and unconditional. Please tell me I'm not going crazy

  8. You are not going crazy. I get asked this question quite often. First I will explain how we can have a spiritual connection to someone that did not have an earthly connection with us and then I will give you a specific example.

    Our thoughts are actually comprised of energy. When we set our intentions, we are putting a lot of energy behind our thoughts. That energy reverberates out into the universe and hence, brings our reality to fruition. Have you ever thought about a friend and right after, that friend calls you on the phone? It is the same concept. You were thinking of your friend and you put your energy into those thoughts, on an energetic level, your friend perceived that information and called you. This is explained in greater detail in an article on here called “Exercise- Communication Through Thought.”

    I believe you have an energetic connection to this person. Just as you have the ability to communicate through thought with those on Earth, you also have the same ability to communicate with those in spirit form. It is interesting that you pointed out the vividness of the dream. One of the main differences between an ordinary dream and a dream visit is the recall of vivid details related to the dream. For more information about dream visits, please see the blog article on here called, “Exercise – Asking For A Dream.”

    I often reach out to those who die suddenly because sudden accident victims can sometimes be confused by the passing and the spirit may need assistance crossing over. About 5 years ago, I reached out to a young person that died in a sudden accident. I sent the spirit into the light, though we didn't share and earthly personal connection. This past year the parent of that young person came to me for a session. As I started to do the session, I recognized the spirit and felt very strongly that the parent's visit was not only healing for the parent but also validating for me as the medium. The spirit was grateful for the help I had given and having the parent come for a session was a way for the spirit to communicate with the parent and also thank me for the help. We don't always know why people are put in our path, but rest assured, God knows how to put the right people in the right places.

    Is an energetic connection the same as a soul connection? If not, is an energetic connection better than a soul connection? I've been trying to look up and find out if the two connections are the same but I've had no luck.

  10. Can you define what you mean by energetic connection? Do you mean that you feel drawn to another physical person's energy like a magnet? A soul connection is one that is shared by two or more souls or a soul group. These souls incarnate together to help share and experience different things in this life on Earth and sometimes on the other side, as well.

    What are the spirits doing on “the other side?” This question has always interested and worried me at the same time. Are they on another planet like Earth that is Heaven? What if they were not religious? Are signs like hearing train whistles blow when I’m thinking of them or doing something they would like just a coincidence or is it the person reaching out to me?

    • anysiakiel says:

      Thank you for your comments. There is an article on here that you should read called “Jobs On The Other Side.” It gives greater detail to what spirits do on the other side. Religion is something that is relegated to the Earth realm. There is no religion on the other side but once people step into the light, they become part of the light–the universal energy in the afterlife. The things you mention may be signs from someone that passed. Sometimes people that pass need our help as well. Just as we have different types of spiritually evolved people on Earth, the same is true on the other side. When someone dies, they do not automatically become omniscient and spiritually evolved; It is a process. They leave the Earth as they were and continue to learn and grow on the other side. Hope this helps.

    When I go visit my grandma’s grave I feel as if I should just stay there. I feel some sort of pull then i cry so bad and i cant stop crying. I wanted to know what is this that i feel that pull( its not like someone is actually pulling me buti feel it … I dont know how to explain it to u)
    My grandma died when i was 8 , that was 10 years ago.She is not buried in the country i live in so i can not visit her regularly.The last time I went to visit her was a year ago and it had been 4years i hadnt visited.Do you think it is possible i will be able to meet her someday after i die?

    Thanks

    • anysiakiel says:

      Hello and thank you for your question. I understand the pull you are describing. It is an energetic one. Do you think you might
      be experiencing this because your grandmother is buried in another country and you do not have constant access to her grave site? What you need to understand is that she is not at that grave site. She is a spirit now and is always visiting. You never lost her, she just changed from physical form to a spiritual one. It would be helpful for you to read an article on here about what this transformation. It is called, “Why does God Take our Loved Ones?” You do not need to wait until you die to meet her again. Her spirit lives on in the afterlife. There are a host of exercises listed on this blog to help you communicate with your passed on loved ones. Please try whichever seems best for you. I invite you to let go of the grief you have been carrying for your grandmother for the last 10 years and step through the door to a continued spiritual relationship with her. She is only a thought away from you!

      Love and light,
