Thinking about death is a very good thing. Everyone has to pass through it, yet everyone avoids thinking about it and what comes after. Death is an incredible opportunity and ancient civilizations spent their whole lives preparing themselves for death, so they may take full advantage of the opportunity.

Saturn makes a full swing in everyone's natal chart at around 28/29 years, so this may also play a big part in your thinking right now. Saturn is a harsh teacher, pulling away the veil of illusion and forcing us to see things as they are and look at things we tried to avoid. During this period, one also fully steps into adulthood and into your self, potentially leaving a lot of the conditioning and the influence of the expectations others have of you as a child behind. Set your intent how you want to define yourself during this stage, yet avoid boxes and labels.

The soul is eternal and the body is a dress. As one dress fades it is replaced with a new one. It is said in a vedic aphorism that death is like a cruel teacher to the materialist, but approaches with folded palms to one on the spiritual path. Another allegory is that death is like the jaws of a mother cat. A materialist experiences it like a mouse experiences the mouth of the cat, absolute terror, but one on the spiritual path experiences it like a kitten in the mouth of its mother, safe and protected. Same teeth, but relating to it completely different.

Why her and not my other deceased relatives? Will I be waiting on my husband on the other side for him to pass? Will he be waiting for me? Are my parents gonna be popping in and out of my life from the other side whenever they do pass? What if nothing even happens? Like.. I believe our souls go somewhere, but what if I'm wrong and it's just completely blank.. darkness? Eep. Why it's been on my mind lately, and out of no where really, is what's making me question it.

I think it's just questions like this. Afterlife kinda things, now that I think about it. Things like this just keep me up at night and it will sometimes make me feel uncomfortable. Then I stay up all night googling what others reactions were to seeing the spirit of their deceased relatives. My brain wanders too much.

You shouldn't over think, and definitely not feel uncomfortable.

Hopefully some replies have been comforting for you :)

Maybe you can try meditation if you haven't already, even 5 or 10 minutes to start off. Again you may experience a gush of thoughts in the beginning, but persistence is key in any endeavor. Carry on and soon you will be rewarded with a blissful serenity, and realise there is nothing to worry about as we are just light and love, temporarily having forgotten our true nature.

What better way to live than helping one another?

I think most people experience certain times where they are fixated with death.
For me it was when I was 8 and later at 14 years old and both times came after a tragic death. I think it's just a way the mind processes the loss.
