  Section Description

When you want to effectively support someone who's living or dying with a serious illness, it's important to ask for and receive love and support from your family, friends, and healers. When you do this, you will not only have more loving energy to give, you will be grounded in what other energy is available to help and how it can all work together.

Success in supporting seriously ill people comes with knowing your strengths, limitations, and when to seek help. When you feel unsure or like you are getting “in over your head,” I encourage you to talk things over with:

  • people in your own faith group
  • a mentor or colleague you trust
  • a social worker, counsellor, or shaman
  • your other support networks

The following are my top recommendations for asking for and receiving love and support for yourself and others.
