The Many Faces of Death
In the work that I do I see many different faces of death. Some are peaceful and smooth. Others are ragged and angry until they finally give in. The faces that I see are not just the physical bodies but the energy that emotes from the soul that is going to the next place. Its going to be different for all of us. One of the most beautiful deaths I have experienced was of an elder client named Grace. Her daughters surrounded her in her last moments. Yes there was a separation of body and soul that can sometimes be hard to watch but there was so much joy in the room brought by those that loved her. She floated on a bed of angelic roses through the thin veil between this world and the next one.
My wish is that we all have that experience, but its just not how it works. My own mothers death was not so nice as what I just described. I wish it had been, but it was the journey she chose. That was to be her way. Lately I have been getting visits by the messenger of death, or transition as I like to call it. The owl came last night and I knew that a client of mine was leaving and had finally let go to make her journey. I have to say she was a tough little shit and ran her family ragged. She got me too or I wouldn’t be writing this piece at 3:44 in the morning. It is in her honor and also to those that have passed in the last little while including my mother Geneva.
The Many Faces of Death
Your eyes are clear
They see me
Your heart is deep
As deep as the sea
As you let go of this physical body
As the soul that you are
Do you feel it now?
The pull to pure joy, pure love
Its powerful enough to carry you
The rest of the way
The way you haven’t wanted to go
But its here now
Hold on to the hands that are reaching out for you
Hold on to the love that is seeping into your soul
There is no room for anger now
Its vibration no longer resonates with you
Love, pure love
Peace, pure peace
When you finally let go the anger
The fear, the judgement and the rage
Source fills your soul
You float into the next realm of existence
The realm of Gods beauty after the human experience
Let go of the shell of what you can no longer be
Feel the pulse of your soul
It belongs to the flow
The oneness that is the universe
Outside of the physical being ness
Its beauty is you, and you are now
You are everything
Do you see me?
Do you see you, now that you are there?
Do you feel everything now?
Isn’t it everything you never thought it could be?
It is oneness
I am overjoyed for your time to be now
In that weightless light being existence
Honor the journey that you took
Here on this earth plain
It wasn’t easy
It wasn’t pretty
The anger you held for so long withered your little body.
It ate you up with the resentment that was the cancer in your life
Your face of death wasn’t beautiful
but it was yours
And mine will be mine
Even with blood spewing from your swollen body
The journey you chose was yours and it held a beauty and fierceness of its own
The sacred owl came and told me you were going now
We will all feel your power from the other side
Light and love, peace and joy little one
Breathe in your sigh of relief
Its time for you to shine
