Death: Dealing with Death From a Shamanic Perspective
Modern civilization has lost rituals around the death process. It is important to understand them, so that you can protect your energy. Equally, to best support someone who is dying and their loved ones.
For a time before, during and after death a shattering of consciousness takes place for the person who is dying. The dying person’s light body gathers and gets ready to take flight, taking with it all that is beautiful and harmonious into the Great light. It can be a sacred and beautiful time when the Spirit leaves.
Death Can Bring Aspects of Transpersonal Healing For You
A healing for you can take place by offering your emotions and feelings when the Great Light arrives. This is a time to feel your heart, and grief for days afterwards; Feeling and being with your grief. Sometimes when one opens their heart it feels like sadness but there is a tenderness and vulnerability with it. This is actually beautiful when you reach this space and can heal your heart and many of the pains held within. It is a time to be extra devotional.
Death and unraveling the ego
Going back to the person who has passed or is about to pass. The parts of consciousness that don’t resonate with the light don’t go on this journey into the light. How fortunate that the dying person gets this release and reprise. The parts of the ego that don’t go with the deceased, dissolve and ideally can be lifted out with the Great Light at the time of death.
Sometimes, the part of the ego remains as it is not lifted out at the time of death. You can accidentally welcome it into your body of energy. This is unfortunate, as it tends to bury around an organ, the right iliac, the womb, and prostate causing multiple issues. It will stay hidden for a lifetime. You have a natural protection from catching these fragmented pieces of the deceased; however, at the time of our grief and unconsciousness, you are more vulnerable.
Death and how to stay protected while someone is dying
Avoid sugar, meat, alcohol and mind altering drugs during this time and fro three weeks afterwards. Avoid arguments which unfortunately can happen at this time. Some cultures take extra care to have clean houses and to fast for three weeks during times that a loved one is making the transition.
The more devotional to Spirit that you can be, the more you will assist the dying and you will be protected.
When you suspect that you caught something as the deceased’s energy is always around you
You might feel like something is not quite right and blame an old accident that is causing this pain. Most blame sugar, gluten, meat for the problem that is affecting you now, but this can be a symptom. If you suspect something like this then it is beneficial to see a qualified clearer ( exorcist – but I don’t like that word). Sadly, many traditions and religions have lost this knowledge and skill. Entities (fragments of energy/ego) can be crafty and hide well at the time of removal. If someone says they cast it out for you and you did not feel a great light that is palpable and glorious, think again.
In conclusion, having a loved one die can be a time for you to turn more to your spirit connection. When you have a tear in your eye and look to the light there will be a rainbow in the tear drop. Importantly, take awareness to protect yourself from this natural time of your loved one’s transition.
All is love, Elle
