None of us can escape loss, whether it’s unexpected or not. But changing our lives is far easier than most of us believe it is, if we know how. Loss is only what we make of it.

We can learn how to transform even our deepest pains into our greatest gifts. Servet Hasan is a clairvoyant, medium, and author of Life in Transition: An Intuitive Path to New Beginnings.
