Internationally famous relationship therapist, author, and media personality, Dr. Jamie Turndorf (aka Dr. Love) spoke with the Manalapan heath Examiner sharing her amazing true story of her spiritual reconnection with her beloved deceased husband, internationally renowned former Jesuit priest, Emile Jean Pin. Discovering for herself that relationships don’t end in death, Dr. Turndorf has created a groundbreaking new grief therapy method that combines her acclaimed conflict-resolution methods with after death communication. The result: An unprecedented method that enables the bereaved to reconnect, heal unfinished business, and make peace with the deceased. Here is an amazing interview on how Dr. Jamie reconnected with her husband and then shared her experience with the world in her latest book, "Love Never Dies: How to Reconnect and Make Peace with the Deceased."
While we were vacationing in Italy, Emile Jean Pin, my beloved husband and life partner of nearly 30 years, suffocated before my eyes from a mistreated bee sting. For most of his life, Jean had been one of the most famous Jesuit priests in history. Since his death, he has been coming to me in spirit form.
Unlike Jean, whose life was steeped in religion, Dr. Jamie Turndorf was raised by two Jewish atheists. The only religion they practiced was religiously hating each other! She never went to church or read the Bible. In fact, her parents taught her to not believe in God or the afterlife.
Her lack of belief was abruptly shattered after Jean’s death. To ensure that she wouldn’t dismiss the events, his persistent and astonishing manifestations have often occurred in front of witnesses, thereby proving beyond a shadow of doubt, that the spirit does, indeed, live on.
The following are but two examples of what is included in the book: For the past thirty years, Dr. Jamie Turndorf has suffered from a metabolic disorder that baffled doctors. When Jean and Jamie first met, she was a size four. Suddenly, without making any alteration to her eating or exercise habits, she ballooned to three hundred pounds in a couple of months. No matter what exercise or diet regime she tried (including a ten-month green juice fast) nothing worked. When the weight gain occurred in the early eighties, Jean told her that he had a vision of her melting away. She asked him, “When?” He said, “I don’t know.” Right before we left for Italy, he told Jamie that he again had the vision of her melting. Jamie asked him, “When?” This time he said, “Very, very soon.” Soon after his death, Jean came to her in spirit form and said, "I had to go. I needed to be in the form I’m in to help you better. I finally have the power to fix your metabolic disorder. I'm rebirthing you.” I changed nothing in my habits and in a few months I melted to my former size.
Another example. Soon after Jean’s death, Dr. Jamie had to fax a letter to Verizon to remove his name from our phone line. She was told to fax a cover letter along with his death certificate. She had sent many multi-page faxes earlier in the day without a problem. However, each time she tried to fax his death certificate, the cover letter faxed without a hitch, but the death certificate wouldn't fax. She tried to fax his obituary instead. The same thing happened. The cover letter faxed but the obit didn't. She tried twenty times. No dice. She said aloud, "I think you’re trying to tell me you're not gone!. The next day, she took the documents to the lawyer. The same thing happened at his office. The secretaries came out of the back office, crying. They said, "He wants you to know that he's not gone." The next day Jamie had to fax the cover letter and his death certificate to another company. The same thing happened. Jamie said aloud, "You keep doing this because I keep forgetting that you're still here with me. If I promise to remember, will you let the death certificate go through?" Jamie cancelled the fax. She suddenly felt a huge wave of love pouring into herself. She dialed the fax again and it went through in its entirety.
Since the beginning of time, humans have hoped and prayed that an afterlife exists. Until now, this belief has been based on a leap of faith, rather than a confirmed reality. Our story is proof positive that there is life after life.
Jean has asked her to tell their story, to prove that the spirit lives on, to confirm that relationships do not end in death, and to ease the two most universal and dreaded fears: that of loving and losing and that of death and dying.
Whenever Dr. Jamie tells their story, nothing short of miracles occur. Reactions are generally grouped into two separate camps: There are those who are immensely relieved and comforted to discover the truth. For these people, simply knowing that continued contact is possible readies them to begin their own process of reconnecting.
The other camp experiences a sense of jealousy, despair, hurt or anger. These people invariably say, “Why is your husband in contact with you? My loved one never comes to me!” In response, She describes the various signs of spirit presence. In a matter of minutes, she is hearing, “That happened to me…and so did that!” For members of this group, becoming aware of the signs is all that is needed to release the dead bolt of ignorance that has sealed the door of their hearts. In no time, they, too, are peering through the peephole, beholding their loved ones once more.
Some people have voiced the objection that reconnecting with those who have passed prevents people from “moving on” with their lives. Jean’s answer to this objection is simple. Our hearts are made to love. There is no limit to the number of people we can love, and more than enough room in our hearts to love those who have passed as well as those who walk the earth.
During this past year, Dr. Jamie's ability to tell of their story and the share of their new grief therapy method has been guiding the bereaved to reconnect and make peace in ways that have never before been possible. The healing and peace that results are astonishing—and extremely gratifying, says Dr. Jamie Turndorf.
About the book:
As a result of her experiences with her husband in spirit form, Dr. Jamie Turndorf has discovered that we don't die and relationships don't end in death.
As a therapist, Dr. Jamie says that the traditional Western approach to grief (grieve, let go and move on) often leaves the bereaved at an even greater loss. By contrast, my method guides people to reconnect rather than say goodbye.
The bereaved can reconnect to whatever degree they desire. Some may simply wish to reestablish contact in the early stages of loss, to help them work through grief. Those who have lost a loved one to sudden, tragic death have been robbed of the chance to say farewell and, if needed, make amends. These people desperately need to reconnect.
There are other cases in which ongoing connection is desirable as well. Reconnecting is a lifeline, especially for the elderly who may not wish to form another primary attachment. Likewise, parents who have lost children also desperately need to reconnect and stay connected, as do children who have lost parents.
But reconnecting is just the beginning. Dr. Turndorf can’t think of a soul alive who doesn’t harbor resentment toward someone who has died. Millions of people have been abused or mistreated by a parent or spouse who is no longer living. While traditional Western therapy offers no method for resolving unfinished business with someone who has died, thankfully her method provides a solution for the millions who suffer.
Because beings are instantly transformed following bodily death, it now becomes possible to resolve issues that never could have been tackled previously. This means that it is never too late to heal wounds, resolve resentments, make peace and repair a damaged relationship with someone who has passed over.
What's more, it has been revealed to Dr. Jamie that the departed yearn to make peace with the living, right their wrongs and shower us in love. As one of my patients rightly said, “I wish my mother would hurry up and die so we can work this out.”
Turndorf's method can best be described as spiritual relationship therapy. Whereas mediums transmit information from those who have crossed over to those on earth in a one-sided communication, her method, by contrast, guides people to make their own direct contact and engage in a two-sided discussion.
Learning how to communicate with a spirit being is easier than one might imagine.
Dr. Jamie three-part method guides readers to:
- Create a “State of Receptivity”
- Recognize the Signs of spirit presence and
- "Dialogue with the Departed”
1) Creating a "State of Receptivity” includes stilling the mind and breathing. Spirit is born on the breath.
2) Next cultivating awareness by outlining the often-overlooked signs of spirit presence in our lives. Simply becoming aware of the signs of spirit presence is generally sufficient to initiate reconnection. Most people are astounded to discover that their loved ones have been offering signs of their presence all along, patiently waiting for them to open the door of their hearts.
3) Lastly, Dr. Turndorf shows readers how to establish a direct communication with those who have passed. Using my “Dialoguing with the Departed” technique, readers will learn how easy it is to converse with someone that has passed. In this back and forth dialogue, old resentments and wounds are miraculously healed, thereby transforming grief to joy.
