Your Friend Death
I met the Grim Reaper in a reading with a client recently. She was scared of Death and it showed in her energy field. I spoke to the reaper, menacing Scythe in hand. He laughed and said, this Scythe is a gift to you. When you see me coming this is what you use to cut away your ties and fears, this is what will free you from death. I am your friend, here to remind you that you have a choice. Die to fear, or live for Freedom.
This inspires me. Especially since I am a fan or Arch angel Michael and his golden sword. Many times have I used the Light and Grace of the Divine to release me and forgive me from my pains and traumas, but never had i thought to ask the Darkness for it's help.
We have been well trained into believing that the darkness and death are to be feared, that evil and bad things lurk there. Essentially, that we are not safe there. Maybe, consciously, you have evolved and now believe otherwise, but we have been indoctrinated with concepts, repeated and bred into our psyche for a very long time, and like childhood ghosts that lurk in the closet, maybe there are some hidden death concepts waiting to jump out of your Subconscious to reveal more truth on the matter.
If birth is the door 'in', and death is the door 'out' of this Life, let's just say, then why is it that soooo many people have it indelibly stamped that both these processes are the worst, most painful experiences ever? What ancient systems of belief, religious or cultural are we consistently tapping into as if it's the Truth, that admittance too and from this world are to be feared, and that Death is waiting to get us round ever corner? What is it making this life experience out to be? It's as if to say that there is no benevolence or kindness in our creation, just one long, painful drag, punishment or test.
From my experience of giving birth to my 2 boys, I can honestly tell you that it was the two most incredible experiences of my life. Their birth was BLISSFUL! I said "YES!" to giving birth. I opened, I trusted, I received the blessings and the hormones and the joy and the light and the peacefulness of it.
It was indeed miraculous.
Why should death be any different?
Did i experience pain? No.
Because I chose to not reference what i was experiencing as Pain. I had sensations that i said yes to. Having a baby deliver meant I had to receive that as part of the package, so I did. It did not hurt. I was loving it!
Saying yes to Death, or the passing of one state of being into the next, a transition, could be just as ecstatic, peaceful, and beautiful. Perhaps if you dared to look Death in the face, you would see him twinkling back at you with a smile, not a grimace. Maybe he's handing you the very thing you need to liberate your mind.
There is a Kindness in this Universe, an Almightily Benevolence, that gives us the choice.
If birth and death became the reference points for the Life journey that happens in the middle, then maybe we need to shift our perception a little.
What if Birth and Death are the hands of our Divine Parents reaching out to hold us, and walk with us through this life, in one perpetual, unending stream of Love? What if both the Light and the Dark are our very Makers, and aspects of ourselves that we can never run away from or cut away from, but yet to embrace, love and say Yes to; to Be everything that we are created in each moment to be?
Whether it's the Light or the Dark, Birth or Death aspect of Life that hand you a gift to set yourself free from concepts that enslave you, take it.
It's all God.
