For those who are in terminal illness, their transition takes a little longer and its been my offering of opinion that theirs is one of taking time to get all their loved ones together before and, ready for the 'after', of the transition time (passing.)
Some of course are taken much quicker due to accidents thus their loved ones don't have much time to accept, which also causes a much longer, more difficult grief (acceptance) time for thse left here.
What does happen in the last days and moments in my experiences is, our loved ones do see, hear and talk to their loved ones already in the 'other dimension' (other side). If you are one who is enduring the ''waiting time" then it is so very possible you will notice your loved person transitioning is mentioning names you havent heard for a long time or even ones you don't remember or know! This is because those particular people are attending your very much loved person, letting them know to not be afraid of 'passing' and that they have lots of people they have loved during their life who are there to hold thier hand as they make their way from this life to the next.
For so many, transitioning is a fear factor until they ''see" or "hear" their 'passed' families and friends. Once they've had this experience, they tend to relax and try to pass on to their Earth Families that they will be all good as they pass on.
If any of you are in this position right now.. Please Know that your loved person is always going to be alright and forever by your side whenever you need! Know that your loved person, a very long time ago, already planned, Who is going to meet them at the gates of eternity and they are being very well loved!!
