Do you believe in life after death? Then you can’t miss the opportunity to listen to our special guest, Mary Hill, relate her unique and spiritual experiences as a Registered Nurse and Hospice Case Manager as she developed a close relationship with her patients, showing her the divine grace that accompanies the dying process as she assisted them to transition to the afterlife. Several of her patients kept their promise to appear to her after they passed, and this was evidence that life, or consciousness, continued after the physical body was left behind. Mary is the author of the book Messages from the Afterlife, and is a highly intuitive spiritual healer, Reiki Master, Shamanic Practitioner, and Certified Kundalini Yoga Teacher.

One Response to “Having a Close Relationship with a Patient After Death with Mary Hill – Episode 82”

  1. Jenna

    Lisa’s interview with Mary Hill is very interesting, and it is informative in letting people know that hospice can be a good option for people who are near the end of life. I like how Mary explains how hospice provides so many services to people who are dying, and that Medicare will pay for it for qualifying people. Since we have such a death-denial culture in the United States, Lisa and Mary have a good point that many people delay hospice care because they do not feel comfortable raising the issue with their loved ones. Suggesting hospice to a loved one who is dying can be perceived as an admission of failure, and people often are not willing accept a loved one is going to die, even if the person is very ill. Hospice is considered by some people as giving up fighting, especially since we often characterize illness as a type of battle. I also like how Lisa and Mary talk about how difficult it is to have that conversation with a loved one, and that it takes courage to even bring up the topic. I appreciate Mary’s advice to call hospice even when you don’t know for sure if a loved one will qualify, since they can help with the process of determining if the patient meets the criteria. This interview reminds me of how Art Buchwald went to hospice and was only expected to live a few weeks after discontinuing dialysis, but somehow he ended up living a whole year, so it can be difficult to predict sometimes.

    It is moving when Lisa and Mary talk about the spiritual experience of sitting with a dying person. I can tell those experiences have been important to both Lisa and Mary, and I like how Lisa says she has found joy and fulfillment working with patients who are in the dying process. I like it when Mary mentions how some of her patients told her they would send her a sign once they had crossed over, and then Mary later received the sign. I love how Mary says that she is no longer afraid of her own death but is in no hurry to go. I definitely agree with that sentiment. We should all appreciate the time we are given, even if it ends up not being as much time as the average lifespan.

    Lisa becomes emotional talking about the conversation she had with Ian (Lisa’s husband who died after suffering a long time with cancer) after she found out there was nothing more the doctors could do for him. I like seeing the more vulnerable and emotional side of Lisa in the podcast sometimes. I am so glad Lisa was able to have that discussion with him so he could let Lisa and the two children know that they should move on with their lives after his death. I can tell Lisa really loved Ian. I know it was so awful for her to lose him, but I think she probably treasures the memory of having someone in her life who she loved and cared about so much. Lisa is such a kind and caring person, so she must be very grateful he was in her life for the time that he was, even though it was so incredibly difficult for her and the children to go through the process of him dying, and then the aftermath of his death.
