I’ve said before that I have extraordinary luck in meeting fascinating people. Here’s another example.
My friend Tommy Sandler, son of the late Ruth Lowe whom I wrote about in “Until I Smile At You” (untilismileatyou.com), introduced me to Camille Dan. He said we had much in common. And indeed we do, starting with both of us being charter members of that club no one wants to join: the one where you have experienced the death of one of your children.
My son Jamie died very suddenly and without warning on Christmas Eve, 2016. He was just 34.
Camille endured the tragic death of her son Aaron on September 22, 2019. Aaron was 31.
But here’s the thing that is quite incredible about what Camille has experienced (other than, of course, deep, interminable grief). Just days after the loss of Aaron, Camille began to hear him speak to her from “beyond the veil”. In fact, he told her, in detail, about his transition to the afterlife and his experience on the other side.
Now, I have had no experience with paranormal occurrences nor the occult, or anything like that. Yet, I am, by nature, very open to any and all ideas. So I totally accept that what Camille describes has occurred and continues to happen.
As she and I pursued this, Camille told me she did not consider herself to be a writer nor did she have any burning desire to become an author. Yet, she did have the presence of mind to keep a journal of Aaron's transcendent messages. So, after taking a writing course, she elected to take this information and apply it to the page. The result: “Aaron’s Energy”, is the inspiring story of Camille's unexpected journey through traumatic grief, her discovery of proof of the afterlife and the spirit connection, her understanding of possibilities and the infinite nature of existence.
Let me tell you, if you’ve wondered about life beyond death, or even if you are grieving loss without intertest in “connecting” with loved ones, this book will bring you great comfort from knowing that our loved ones never leave us. You will evolve into a different feeling about “energy”.
Read “Aaron’s Energy”. Perhaps because of the loss of my own son, this book resonated so deeply with me. To the point where I sent a copy to my daughter-in-law Alexie – Jamie’s widow – because I know it will have great meaning to her too.
Thank you, Camille, for having the courage to share your story with the world. And thank you for your friendship. You’ve made a difference.
I should add that proceeds from the sale of “Aaron’s Energy” (https://www.aaronsenergy.com/) are going to mental health and addiction research and care institutes, as well as bereavement support service organizations internationally.
