Having experienced my first transition, I felt so inspired and exhilarated that for a time I was obsessed by becoming an expert in the field of palliative care. So much so that I signed up for an online masterclass in ‘connecting with the other side’ and followed leaders who excelled in the area of psychic mediumship.
Preoccupied with the emotional chaos of death, the extraordinary story of Anita Moorjani inspired me to keep my composure and trust in the greater expanse of consciousness.
I listened to her testimony with affection and felt confident that I had trusted in the guidance of my intuition.
She talks about her death experience – the ‘superb and glorious unconditional love’ that surrounded her, and the beautiful expansion of her soul.
“And then I was overwhelmed by the realization that God isn’t a Being, but a state of being…and I was in the state of being”
Anita made the decision to return to her physical body so that she could share her story.
She only felt confident to do so because she had experienced the power of the Universe and knew she would get better;
“If my inner self were aware of its greatness and connection with all-that-is, my body would soon reflect that and heal rapidly.”
I was also blessed at the time to experience the exceptional teachings of Lisa Nichols, an emotionally charged transformational speaker who motivated me to breathe life into my experience -to tell my story, to embrace the experience and bring some kind of closure to the family.
I was soon after approached, by Consultus Care, to write an excerpt from my journal in honour of this exceptional man.
Interestingly I was asked if the journal could be edited, by the family, so as to exclude the subtle suggestion that there is an “afterlife” as this may have conflicted with current religious beliefs – this made me realize just how much work needs to be done if we are to succeed as evolving humanity and believe in the eternity of our soul.
It also became evident that I would need to be sensitive in my approach to palliative care as my developing beliefs were far from Universal.
It is obvious that we cannot impose our religious or spiritual views upon those in our care but the way we chose to respond in their final hours, and the inner strength we draw on is embued in our own understanding of death.
However, what we can agree on is our innate desire to help and care for those who are transitioning, our instinctive approach, and our compassion that communicates itself to the dying person as a blessing and a great source of comfort.
Birth in the physical is death in the spiritual. Death in the physical is birth in the spiritual.
