How in the world can you help someone who is dead? They are dead, died, gone, ashes, dust, no more. They can't hear me, see me, know what I am thinking...........or can they?
People who die, break away from the physical body. It is the physical body that dies, the spirit still lives in energy. How did you get here in the first place? Your energy body bonded to your physical body for as long as your physical body can last.
