My journey in this life confronted me with death early on. I experienced several near-death experiences between the ages of three and eighteen. As a result, I was forced to confront my own mortality numerous times from my earliest years.
I am thankful that I grew up in a family where death was not a taboo subject. On the contrary, I remember being able to watch Elisabeth Kübler-Ross (a pioneer in near-death studies and originator of the "five stages of grief" model) on TV when I was only seven years old. My family often discussed the topics of incarnation and life before and after death, normalizing and allowing these subjects to be integrated into my awareness early on.
I firmly believe that we are spiritual beings who consciously incarnate into a physical body in order to gain experience, allowing us to progress on the path to enlightenment. My approach to working with those at the end of life is to utilize a variety of energy healing modalities to enable the dying person to release regrets, attachments, and cords that may be preventing them from passing with ease and comfort, and to provide spiritual support to hold them through this process. Forty-eight hours after the spirit has left the body, I return to ensure that the passage has been fully completed, and I seal the physical body, ensuring that the soul is free to make its onward journey unencumbered.
Services can also include prenatal planning, and life review after death. I will be writing more on this topic soon in my blog.
Since successfully going through cancer diagnosis and treatment a few years ago, I have been motivated and inspired to accompanying people on their last journey back to heaven and to their source.
Unfortunately, many people die alone in retirement homes. We as a culture have lost touch with death, and for many it is a topic that is not easy to talk about. As a society, we are very good when it comes to pregnancy and childbirth. There are midwives, doctors, nurses, books etc. to prepare us for the event.
Unfortunately, this is not always the case in the dying process. And yet there is hope, with new organizations such as Doula Givers, founded by Suzanne O'Brien, which work to educate society and certify Death Doulas on and around the dying process.
I see my role here as supporting the medical and psychological work, and I offer myself for one or more ceremonies with a family member or your friend.
It is important to eliminate fears and shame of not having done some things right in life. One can remove these negative feelings on an energetic level, allowing a person to "let go" more peacefully. It is a very gentle process, with incense rituals and the laying on of hands. As a former travel agency employee, it is a great honor to issue someone with their last boarding pass.
I would be happy to tell you more about it in a preliminary talk.
In deep connection,
