Affirmations for the Dying

(Taken from the description in the new video.)

Those of us who are dying can often feel alone. 

They’re turning into butterflies, when their loved ones, even though they may mean well, want to keep them as caterpillars.

That’s understandable. 

Letting go is hard; we’ve spent so long holding on.

But let go we must, and nobody knows that better than the dying.

I’ve known several people who have died. Some have been friends, others have been members of my family. 

I volunteered at my local hospice for a number of years, getting to know many people who knew they were dying. I saw that twinkle in their eye; that unique twinkle of a dying star.

Strange how it gets brighter towards the end. You wouldn’t think so. But it does.

Whatever the widespread belief is, regarding death and dying, for me it is fundamentally beautiful. 

It’s a natural and organic process, that we embarked upon the moment we were born. 

Shun death, and we shun life.

I wanted to do something, in my own limited way, for those of us who are dying. Something I wish I’d have done earlier, for those close to me who have been through the dying process. 

So I made this video.

The affirmations it contains are what I assume I would like to listen to, when it is my time to soar. They’re something to aid the transition, to help loosen the grip, to assist in facing the facts.

If you are reading this, and you are dying, consider this my gift to you. 

I truly hope you find peace in the process.

Sending you love and light and all things bright.

Your friend,
