Day 19: Facing Your Death / Embracing Your Life

photo from Petra, Kriebels & Krabbels

Last year my husband and I started decided we should really prepare our wills. We thought it would be tough, sad and difficult to talk about. As we sat and went through all that we had and considered all the people that we loved, we were filled with deep sense of gratitude and joy. Creating our wills turned out to be an exercise in appreciation. Who knew?

May you discover some joyful surprises on today's journey.

This took me way, way, way out of my comfort zone! I don't like death, I especially don't like thinking about my own death, or how it might be to die. I played full out because I really wanted to tackle this fear. before I wrote the post I did the meditation...it was very uncomfortable. But after a few minutes, it felt less scary. I am not ready to die, but I feel that this was a real challenge and I am glad that I was able to de-mystify this...whew...

I was in no way comfortable with Level 3 today for reasons which I've explained in my post. I went with Level 1 instead which was more about releasing my past. I'm interested to see how others felt about today's tasks.

love, light and peace

Still strange things seems to happen with Mr. Linky. A few minutes ago there were about 6 subscribers.... now there's no one.

Is is really ever a good day to die? I mean I may be ready but there is always something more I will want to do. I guess the question is, when I am called will I be able to release my earthly desires and accept gracefully what is placed before me? No easy way to think of it I am sure, but I feel my answer is yes, I am ready although I don't feel willing quite yet.

Okay - I'm weird - I enjoyed today - So much peace - so much "Oh! This is okay. Death as we know it is just another journey."

Aurora said...

hated this! too much unfinished business in my life (dang!)

Love the 1st two levels - too vivid an imagination to even consider level 3, thank you.

But given a choice, I still want the cake

I've been wondering when Denise was going to talk about death. I am comfortable with death. It seems odd to me that I am, but I am.

I have done similar work in my Hospice training, so didn't get into it as deeply as I might have. I did attend a great concert tonight that was a walk down memory lane - some of the music of the 50s early 60s that led to what we call 'rock & roll'
AND I've posted (from Wed) an excerpt from an e-mail I received Wed, which inc. an exercise we can all do to empower a global shift of consciousness!
