Patrick Swayze’s Wife Still Texts

For those who have just lost a loved one, “magical thinking” – almost-superstitious, ritualized behavior that people feel can keep them “in touch” with the recently deceased – can be a reality. The late Patrick Swayze’s wife Lisa Niemi, for instance, regularly sends her departed husband text messages. ABC News reports:

While boarding a plane in July, Lisa Niemi sent a text message to her husband, the actor Patrick Swayze. Even though he died of pancreatic cancer a year ago Tuesday.

It could have been a scene out of Ghost, the romantic comedy starring Swayze and Demi Moore. Niemi, 54, said it helps her feel his presence.

Her behavior is not unusual, say psychologists who help grieving spouses. In fact, it is normal – a kind of “magical thinking.”

What do you think – is this just a normal part of the grieving process? Or can such rituals actually create a form of contact with people on the other side?

    I lost my 21 year old sister when I was 19. We were very close. SHe was killed in a car accident after we had spent three months together traveling in Europe. We got home a few weeks before we were to go to our seperate colleges. Her death was a shock. I wanted so badly to feel close to her. I wrote a few letters to her and sent them to her PO Box at the university. It helped for awhile. I got to write things I wnated her to know that I hadn’t told her. It was very healling for me. After a few letters I stopped. YEs it was true, she was really gone forever. The letter writing gently helped me realize this finality. I never got a letter back like I always had.
    THere are many steps we can take to gently guide ourselves though the grieving process. THis is one of the many that helped me.

    I wonder if anyone that calls or texts the number of a deceased loved one has ever gotten a response. Like maybe the phone being answered with dead air, a returned text, or even a returned call from that number. I’ve seen it in movies but I want to know if it’s real!

    Hi Krishna,
    Oh how we will always miss Patrick Swayze the film industry will never be the same, as often as I have done readings for those who are in the grieving process, certain rituals such as texting, talking to them, wearing belt buckles, necklaces, rings, clothing, keeping photos of loved ones with you, this does truly bring them closer to you, it does keep there spirit very much alive and apart of you.

    Blessings and Big Hugs!
