In the United States, today is Memorial Day – a holiday originally meant to honor the fallen soldiers of the Civil War, that expanded to honor all those who die in service of the country. Today, many honor all of their loved ones who have passed. Parades, festivals and acts of patriotism are common on this day, but what about getting in touch with those who have left us? Today is a good time to reflect on those who have passed, whether military or civilian, and honor their spirit. You can do this through prayer, meditation, lighting a candle, or maybe even speaking with a psychic (Medium). The point of this holiday and others like it is to recognize that just because someone has left the physical realm does not mean they are gone in spirit.
