Someone close to me recently passed over. What has come to my awareness is how we don’t generally talk about death, even our own, or a person’s last days in their current lifetime.
Could it be by talking about death from the start of our life, and not seeing it as an end, but the truth of what it is – a passing over, evolution, and the start of a new cycle to begin – we would have a very different relationship with ourselves, death, life, evolution and purpose, and how we prepare for our own or another’s passing over, and how we care for those dying?
Imagine what it would look like and be like if we knew we had a responsibility in life and in how we passed over. That how we lived our life would be how we would pass over. Would things then be different? That we had legal documents prepared and set up stating where we are to be cared for, the food we eat, the music we listen to or the books we read, who we would like to care for us, down to every last detail, such as the lighting in the room.
What if visitors, carers and staff knew they had a responsibility in terms of supporting you by how they live and bringing this to you, the room or your home, if that is where you choose to pass over. How different would this be?
What would it look like if we knew that the lead up to passing over was an opportunity to let go, to clear as much of our hurts, all our unloving choices and karma, so in our next lifetime we come back more evolved, lighter and clearer in our body than the lifetime before? Closer to our true divine being expressing through our body.
Would passing over then not be a celebration, and actually a very precious, joyful and special time, rather than a time of emotions, misery and woe?
