When you are looking for signs from your loved one, start with nature

Often when we are grieving the loss of someone we love, we are filled with anxiety that wherever they are, they are ok. We also want to look for signs that we will be ok.

So when you are asking for a sign, you might want to start with nature. The animal kingdom and animal medicine can be quite healing.

Dave Roberts is a psychology professor and he is a bereaved father. His introduction to this spiritual connection to nature changed everything for him in his grief journey. Take a listen to our conversation. I think you will find it quite fascinating.

David J. Roberts, LMSW, became a parent who experienced the death of a child, when his daughter Jeannine died of cancer on 3/1/03 at the age of 18. He is a retired addiction professional and an adjunct professor in the psychology and psychology child-life departments at Utica College in Utica, New York.

Dave has been a past HuffPost contributor and has also published articles with the Open to Hope Foundation, Recovering the Self Journal, Mindfulness and Grief, Medium and Thrive Global. He has also co-authored a book with Reverend Patty Furino titled: When the Psychology Professor Met The Minister which was self- published through Amazon on March 1,2021.
