Since it's so appropriate for this season, I'll menton what Steiner advised
for helping those who have passed over: reading to the dead. If you take a
book that in your judgement has spiritual content, and take a few moments to
feel your still-living feelings for the deceased, which form a
heart-connection, and then read the book aloud, THINKING ABOUT EVERY WORD as
you do, this is of great help to those in Kama Loca. We've been doing it here
for 15 years and it really does lead to a non-trance communication with the
dead. They are able to help us on this side in return.
