The Analogy of Time

By Susan Rowlen


There are various reasons how people react to time. For some, as people are facing their end they would give anything to have more time to stay in this world. For others, they understand their end is near, and make their peace.

Time is a funny thing, how people embrace the events that surround them is truly a personal decision. You can have an extraordinary wish to something you want to happen, and it can be the biggest misunderstanding at the same time when it does not happen.


So why exactly is TIME so important???


As I have grown older, time has taught me not to question but to trust. Trust that time truly has its own agenda, and it’s not for us to compete with. So, the next time you question the timing to things, or your patience is running thin in regards to your wishes, your hopes, and dreams, that have not materialized yet… Remember there is a plan, it comes when you are truly ready.

When you begin to lose track of the time, is when time becomes your friend. You will feel the need to explore, to be happy in the moment, and to trust in the universe that it’s all in the timing without wanting and waiting.

The true tragedy is waiting for what you want to happen, and living an unlived life in the process. As the old saying goes… “You are not too old, and it’s not too late”

Trust, Relax, and Live without Waiting!

Signs from Spirit are all around us as our loved ones send us messages to let us know they have made it to the other side. I had a dear friend who was diagnosed with lung cancer. She was a client who turned into a dear friend. From the day I met Jennifer, she became personal to me. Her spirit, her beauty always transcended beyond words but most important I would come to know her inner strength, and what she had put into others that will be forever etched in my heart.

The month of February has always been a hard month for me because I have experienced a lot of loss. Jennifer fought the hard fight through the end.  I had gotten the call from her mother who informed me that Jen was near her end and that she had reached hospice care. Her family made arrangements for Jen to leave the hospital and to be taken home where she could pass away comfortably.

Every day her sweet mother kept me informed on Jen and I always kept her and her family in my prayers. On February 19th I had such a hectic schedule at my office seeing clients. My last client came at 5 o’clock. As I was conducting my session with my client I saw a man stepping forward, a grandfather type.  I started to describe this male spirit in detail. My client was so happy she jumped up with excitement and said, “That’s my grandfather! Oh I was hoping he would come through!” I proceeded with relaying the message, then the next spirit came through. This time I saw a woman in a jogging outfit with bright pink jogging shoes and she is running with sheer happiness and such strength. pink gym shoes

I am only seeing the back of this woman as I described what she was doing to my client. I knew this woman was in her late thirties or early forties. She was letting me know she passed from cancer and she was free. She was happy and she ran fast into the light to let her know she was okay. My client replied, “There is no one that fits that description that I know.” I kept asking, “Is it a friend? Someone perhaps your mother or your family knew?” She answered, “No. I’m sorry I don’t know this person.” I apologized but kept seeing the back of this person. I continued on with her reading which was a beautiful one for her. I said my goodbyes, picked up my belongings and headed to my car.

I had played back my voicemails and a dear friend had left a message stating that Jennifer had passed. I started to cry, and all of a sudden Jen appeared to me and said, “It took you long enough! It was me!  I tried to show you I made it to the other side. I remember when you said, when you see the light run to it, and I did.  I am whole again and I can run again.” Jennifer was a marathon runner and when she got sick she no longer could run. The reading I was giving for my client turned out to be a gift for me; divine spirit is priceless. What Jennifer gave me was truly the peace and validation and the gift I will always be grateful for.

When I went to her wake I was greeted by her two beautiful daughters who truly take after their mother. I told them about their mother coming through and told them what she said about the pink gym shoes. They smiled and were overjoyed. They told me they had their mom dressed in a jogging suit and she was wearing pink gym shoes in the casket. Wow!

Jen is not here in a physical sense but her spirit lives on and is always here looking after all of us. We must always remember when our loved ones pass they do show us signs. It can be in dreams, we can hear a favorite song, a smell, find feathers or find coins. These signs come when we need or miss them the most so tune into the signs from Spirit that are all around you; they are there. I am so grateful for the gift that has been bestowed on me and will be eternally grateful to be the messenger each and every day. I learn every day through my clients and the divine spirit. I take nothing for granted and I am grateful for everything.

Much love

There is a lot of mystery about the process of loved ones crossing over to the other side. I’m often asked the question, “Is my loved one here and was my loved one happy with the wake or memorial service?” Let me explain just what happens when our loved one passes. First and foremost, our loved ones do not cross into the light until a few days after the burial or memorial service. From the time of the memorial service, the spirit has 72 hours when they can cross into the light. The only exception is when small children and babies pass they are escorted straight into the light by their angels. They don’t wait around. Almost always our loved ones want to attend their wake, funeral or memorial service.

When I go to a wake I always see the deceased laid out with their head to the left and their feet to the right. The deceased is at the foot of the casket because they can hear all the mourners talking and making their comments. They also want to inspect how they look and what they are wearing. They also want to hear and see everything that is going on around them. They are always surprised to know that I see them but if it is someone I know personally they appear to me soon after crossing over and are so happy to see that I came to their wake.

Female spirits usually are nosey and want to hear what everyone is saying around them. The male spirits usually are walking around the funeral home and checking everything out. If someone is cremated they still attend their memorial service. I can remember my daughter and I went to the wake of the mother of her dear friend. As we approached the casket, we saw how pretty she was made up with a mauve colored dress with lace sleeves. I commented to the mother’s daughter how lovely her mother looked and how pretty her dress was. All of a sudden, her mother jumped up in front of me and said, “Yes, the dress is pretty, but the sleeves pinch and if you think I’m going through eternity wearing this dress that pinches, you got another thing coming!” Sometime later I told that story to her daughter and her daughter replied, “You know, when I picked out that dress I knew my mom would never wear it because the sleeves pinched. So I can see her saying this to you.” And then she started laughing with me. I also told her that her mother was so proud and happy how she arranged everything and how proud she was of her. That made her daughter so happy and at peace.

It is also very important to know what your loved ones wishes are because it is important to carry out their wishes. After crossing over, I have been often told of remorse from the deceased of how they wished they made things clearer when they were alive.

Another time my husband and I went to a wake of a good friend of his. The deceased was an avid motorcycle rider who had a Harley. He and my husband were very close and my husband would repair his bike and they would ride together. So it was only fitting that his family brought his bike and parked it outside the funeral home for all to see with his helmet hanging from the handle bar. There was a boy about seven or eight years old touching the bike and you can rest assured that my husband’s friend did NOT like it. He started to scream at him and the energy was so strong that the little boy not only stopped touching the bike, but ran away as well.

The advice I have for all who loses a loved one is, whatever you want to say you should say it because they are truly there and they see and hear everything. So you can rest assured carrying out your loved ones wishes is not only important to them but also will help bring you the peace you so need as well.
