Where Did You Go? offers deep comfort to anyone who has lost a loved one and hopes to explore what frontier science is now demonstrating: while a heart may stop beating, consciousness never dies. -Lynne McTaggart, bestselling author of The Field From Christina Rasmussen, the much beloved and acclaimed author of Second Firsts, comes a groundbreaking exploration of the afterlife that combines spirituality with cutting edge science-and reveals we all have the power to connect with our loved ones on the other side. Where did you go? This was the first question Christina Rasmussen asked after the death of her husband. A young widow with two daughters, Rasmussen would go on to become an esteemed grief educator who helped countless others rebuild their lives after loss. Yet, even as she learned to thrive again, that first heartbreaking question persisted. Even as she and her clients forged new paths and discovered new joy, the same questions remained: Are we capable of connecting to those who have passed on? What really happens after we die? As a professional grounded in science, Christina was a skeptic who shied away from the conventional mystical, supernatural, and religious descriptions of the afterlife-so she turned to what seemed provable to unravel the mystery of life beyond life: physics. What she found was beyond anything she could have expected: not only is there life after death, but we all have the ability to connect with loved ones who have passed on. Sharing an inspiring message of hope, optimism, and love, Where Did You Go? is a transporting step-by-step guide to journeying to the other side, from one of our most trusted voices on life after loss. Bridging the gap between the metaphysical and the measurable, it will change the way we grieve, the way we live and how we define our potential-in this life and the hereafter.
I know you are afraid. I know you are grieving. But you are not meant to grieve forever. After studying to become a therapist and crisis intervention counselor - even doing her master's thesis on the stages of bereavement - Christina Rasmussen thought she understood grief. But it wasn't until losing her husband to cancer in her early 30s that she truly grasped the depths of sorrow and pain that accompany loss. Rasmussen discovered that there were two worlds: the world before loss and the world after loss. And she realized just how easy it was to become lost in the gap between them, a space she coined as The Waiting Room. It took wading through her own grief and exploring the world of neuroscience and neuroplasticity for her to develop her Life Reentry Model - a way to break grief's spiral of pain and to live and experience the life that you are now living. Using practical exercises and stories drawn from her own life and those of thousands of clients, Rasmussen guides you through the five stages of Life Reentry in a way that both honors your suffering and rewires your brain to help you align your world with your passions, values, and survival going forward. With warmth, compassion, truth, and determination, Rasmussen will help you move past your pain and step firmly onto the path of resilience and possibility.
Christina Rasmussen ist Mitte dreiig, glucklich verheiratet, Mutter von zwei Kindern und frisch promovierte Psychologin, als die Tragodie passiert. Sie verliert ihren Ehemann an Krebs. Aus eigener Betroffenheit entwickelt die junge Frau einen Funf-Stufen-Plan, der ihr hilft, Schritt fur Schritt ins Leben zuruckzukehren und sich selbst neu zu erfinden. In "e;Lebe - lache - liebe"e; ermutigt die Therapeutin ihre Leser zu handeln, anstatt in der Trauer zu erstarren. Mit viel Verstandnis und sehr einfuhlsamer Sprache setzt sie praktische Ubungen und eigene Lebenserfahrungen ein, um die Betroffenen auf ihrer "e;Ruckkehr ins Leben"e; zu begleiten. Ein Mutmachbuch, das einen radikal neuen Ansatz vorstellt, um eine positive Sicht auf das Leben zuruckzuerobern und die Spirale des Schmerzes zu durchbrechen. Rasmussens Schreibstil besitzt die Kraft, Menschen zum Neuanfang zu motivieren und wieder nach vorne zu schauen.
A total revision of the stages of grief, Christina Rasmussen's new book takes a radical approach to bereavement by using neuroscience to honour your past and consider your future positively. After studying to become a therapist and crisis intervention counsellor - even doing her master's thesis on the stages of bereavement - Christina Rasmussen thought she knew what grieving was. But it wasn't until losing her husband to cancer in her early 30s that she truly understood the depths of sorrow and pain that come with it. Using the knowledge she gained while wading through her own grieving process and researching hundreds of neuroscience books, Rasmussen began to look at these experiences in a new way. She realized that grieving plunges you into a gap between worlds - the world before trauma and the world after trauma. She also realized how easy it is to become lost in this gap. In Second Firsts, Rasmussen walks readers through a proven process that helps them break the spiral of pain and create a safe space for their post-grief life to enter. Her method, which she has used successfully online and offline with thousands of clients, is based on the science of neuroplasticity and focuses on consciously releasing pain in ways that both honour suffering and rewire the brain to experience the world in a new way. With understanding and empathy, Rasmussen uses practical exercises and stories drawn from her own life and the lives of her clients to guide readers through five stages of opening up to life. With this knowledge, readers can come out of grief as a new person and start to experience life again - essentially for the first time.
