We all have archetypes of higher consciousness. You can observe them as spirit guides and angel guides. They work with your higher self to guide you on your life purpose, protect you, and love you. Sometimes they love you so much so that they enter the world of the living just to be with you, even if only for a short time. And then they return to the nonphysical to continue guiding you. So if you have loved ones that transitioned before you were ready, they were just here to guide part of your journey from the living before going back into higher dimensions to continue loving you. That also means they’ve always been with you from before they were born to after they ascended. And they’re still with you. They always will be. Yes, always.
