Staying connected with a departed soul could be considered as a crazy topic any time it arises. However, anyone that has had the opportunity to read or hear the story of John Lennon will tell you that there is a strong connection when someone has passed away. Well, Lennon promised his son Julian that he would appear to him in the form of a white feather just to inform him that he was well. Even though Julian kept this conversation a secret, the reality happened in one of his tours in Australia when an aboriginal tribal leader presented him with a white feather.
Well, for many people, death is a menace that cuts then beautiful connections they established with their loved ones that may never be recovered. Most of us find it difficult to establish a new connection with the deceased after they are long gone. Nonetheless, the good moments we shared with our loved ones should never end when they depart.
