Birds flying in the sky

We’ve come to the place of planning his passing

There was grief in the room, yet everyone felt a lot of peace. Richard’s chosen experience for crossing over gave him, his family and humanity this gift, and it is a humbling privilege to share it.


Richard and Toni are two of the people I love most in the world. I don’t know why but my heart burst into love and recognition the first time we met, our soul bond palpable. Who can know where that love will lead?

We all gathered a couple of times for healing, preparing for Richard’s crossing over, working with sound,crystal grids and energy for clearing and protecting space. Richard, a very intelligent, learned man, now in a home care situation, no longer walking, spent his days with his beautiful wife Toni caring for his every need.

“I feel guided to offer you more assistance Richard. I could help you when and you’re ready to cross over. I’ll use energy to help your spirit to depart your body and energetically clean you up to a sparkling condition for your journey back to Source.

“I’ll speak with you as clearly as we are speaking now. I’ll prevent you from getting stuck to Earth and communicate anything you want to say to your family. I’ll connect you with your team of unconditionally loving guides who will take you home to Source.”

“Yes please. That will be wonderful.”

After that Richard relaxed a lot about dying and he became more peaceful.

December 12, 2014, Toni called, “It’s happening now.”

Within my inner being I said, ”Richard hang on. I’m on my way”, and I knew he would. I drove to the hospital, parked my car and text alerted Toni that I was coming up the stairs. Toni met me. We walked into the room.

His son said, “His breathing is shallow. He’s going.”

I was pulled by the power of love to his feet, I connected to Richard, the energetic process unfolding before I’d even had a chance to sit down. Richard was now unconscious, eyes closed, and we were together on the inner plane. He knew what was happening, for he had waited till he heard I was coming up the stairs before he began to let go.

Many of Richard’s family were present. The amount of emotion in the room was beautifully intense. I felt it heaving through my being too.

“Richard, I love you”, I said. Then I began to invoke for each person in the room and for unconditional loving guidance, healing for all and safe passage home for Richard. Telepathically I began explaining to Richard what was happening and why; so he was fully engaged in the process.

I explained to his family too. “I’m helping to make it easier for him. Now he is ready to leave his body. It’s gentler for his spirit.”

There began a process taking some hours. He was able to communicate with me more clearly as he became free of his body that was wracked with pain physically.

I didnt quite believe it you know, that you could hear or speak with me, yet here we are!, said Richard. I laughed audibly, and I saw a massive golden portal open up above Richard and all of his guides, who were also golden, descend into a large, wide circle around him.

I was translating to Richard’s family what was happening. “He’s experiencing joy and freedom and an expanded level of consciousness that he hasn’t been able to reach in this lifetime. He says he is expanding rapidly and feeling so much love, joy, peace and that he’s in no pain.”

Richard was seeing his life, sort of like a movie, only all at once.

“He’s seeing his life now and realising it was not what he thought, and he’s now feeling gratitude and love for everyone and everything, even the people who gave him trickiness, because he realises now everyone he has ever met gave him the opportunity to perfect love.

“He’s forgiving and asking for forgiveness. He’s saying he loves you all. He loves each of you with the same love and loves each of you individually for who you are and who you are to him.

“He’s saying…” I faltered… emotion now so powerful. I collected myself, “He’s saying, there’s this thing between fathers and sons”.I looked towards his son, “He says he loves you and that he could never find the right way, the right words…”I faltered again, emotion so intense my body shook and my voice seized, through heaving waves of emotion, “…to say to you just how much he loves you.”

His son, body shaking, hands covering his eyes, was undone and cried out, I love you Dad.”Everyone in the room was crying, moving together through the power of love that binds us all, into healing.

Later, after Richard’s passing, his daughter confirmed I had relayed the exact words her father had spoken to her and her siblings on their last trip together to ride the ferries in Sydney.

It was a privilege to speak on Richard’s behalf and exquisite to share.

Then Richard was observing his own energy centres and experiencing the difference in his being after he had taken the opportunity to forgive and speak his heart’s truth to his loved ones.

Handing Richard over into the very capable hands and hearts of his guides, I said,You can ask your guides. Theyre here.

Out of the ethers came the hand of a guide holding a touchstone, shining bright white like a star, touching it to Richard’s heart centre. He instantly remembered the purity of his spirit, and all fear melted away.

As the blinding light receded Richard became aware of his guides’ presence as they stepped into view around him. He was both awed and overjoyed to see them. They asked him if he’d like to come back to Earth and he said, Yes!

They said, Then you can leave something to work with for next time.Richard understood all in a moment that was the whole purpose of life on Earth–to perfect love–and the way to do that is to take the bits that are not perfected and transform them back into love during life.
He was very happy. He still had a lot of questions and began to address me again with them. I said, You can ask your guides. They have more answers than I.

He thanked me, marvelling at his fortunate experience to leave his body in this way, and then turned to his guides and together they walked towards the golden portal. I have to go now. The angels are calling me and I hope the walk to heaven is not a short one! I have a lot of questions!LOL–so Richard!

As they approached the golden doorway, all the colours of the rainbow swirled around them, dissolved into gold, and all of his questions we’re answered, in a moment.

Toni asked, “What now? Where is he now?”

I asked the guides, observed and explained, “Well his guides have taken him to a place where he can do a self-assessment, a review on his goals for this life. There’s no judgment. Richard assesses himself, and it’s not like it’s good or bad in the soul dimension. It’s only vibration, then taking that into account, with his guides, he will make a new goal for next lifetime.

“At the same time, Richard is not bound by the laws of the physical any more. He can be in many places, and do many things at once. He can be here with us and be there.”

While there was grief in the room, everyone felt a lot of peace. Richard’s chosen experience for crossing over gave himself, his family and humanity this gift and it is a humbling privilege to share it. I have wept tears of gratitude and love for the sharing of this experience. May your spirit soar Richard, may peace be with you and may we all be at peace.


In loving memory of Richard Arthur Bennet-Bremner, who asked that his story be shared for the benefit of all.

Freya-Savitri Sampson, custodian of Eartheart, experienced a kundalini awakening in 1999. Directly after that she met Archangel Azrael (Angel of Death and Transformation), with whom she works closely. Raym Richards (known to many LivingNow readers as the author of ‘Diary of an urban shaman’) is Freya’s teacher, colleague and dear friend.
