Sounds good.

Yes, I think that looking in the Bibliography or Suggested Reading sections is an excellent idea.

Right now I'm reading the book The Spell of the Sensuous: Perception and Language in a More-Than-Human World by David Abram. It's a wonderful shamanic book that is helping me "listen to the world"

You're way ahead of me.  One thing you can do, if you want to read more is note down the books in the Bibliography in the back of these books, or if there is one, "Suggested Reading."

Some of my "authorities":

Shamanic Guide to Death and Dying by Kristin Madden isn't an authoritative book but does a nice job of presenting the shamanic view and rituals of death.

Making Friends with Death: A Buddhist Guide to Encountering Mortality by Judith Lief presents a wonderful personal approach to death.

You probably already know about these two books, but they do a nice job post-death:

Proof of Heaven by Eben Alexander
The Miracle of Death by Betty J. Kovács

My two favorite translations of the Tibetan Book of the Dead:

The Tibetan Book of the Dead translated by Robert A. F. Thurman
The Tibetan Book of the Dead translated by Stephen Hodge and Martin Boord

Thurman's book describes the Tibetan Buddhist concepts of what happens after death.

The Hodge translation has wonderful annotations that help people like me who are approaching the book from a completely different cultural context.

That's what I'm talking about!  Yes, Elizabeth Kubler-Ross was an amazing woman.  I don't know of any other authorities on death.  I was hoping that your investigation into the subject might have uncovered other authorities on it.

Oh yes, I so agree with you. And I've done just that. There's an Elisabeth Kubler-Ross quote that I like to use when discussing the idea that no one dies alone:
"But at the time of transition, your guides, your guardian angels, people whom you have loved and who have passed on before you, will be there to help you. We have verified this beyond a shadow of a doubt, and I say this as a scientist. There will always be someone to help you with this transition."
—Dr. Elisabeth Kubler-Ross from her book On Life After Death.

I've done a 7-minute video on the idea that no one dies alone. It's on in the lower right corner. (I haven't gotten a good enough version onto YouTube.)
Thank you for your help!

Well, since you're asking me, and not your spirit guide, I would tell you to investigate death itself.  I would recommend the books of Elizabeth Kubler-Ross.  Google"Death".  Find out all you can about it.  Get ready for Samhain.  It's the Sabbat when the veil between the worlds is the thinnest. 

Comment by Chrome Cade on September 18, 2015 at 10:28am

That's my primary question: What should I be doing?

Comment by Tegwedd ShadowDancer on September 17, 2015 at 10:04pm

Yes, definitely reconnect with your spirit guide.  You'll definitely need hir guidance on your return to your path.  After you reconnect with hir, what will be your next step?
