What Words Will You Say at the Threshold?

Steve Jobs’ last words were, “Oh, wow. Oh, wow. Oh, wow.”
I wonder what he was seeing and feeling and understanding when he said those words?

In her book Words at the Threshold: What We Say As We’re Nearing Death*, Lisa Smartt quotes a hospice nurse, “End-of-life experiences are often positive for people. The things they see, the changes they go through: it is like a journey.”

Smartt then cautions, “However, clearly not everyone journeys gently into that good night, and some die having never made peace or having fully resolved the life issues that allow for tranquil transitions.”

Next she recounts what Kathy Notarino shared with her, “many people die as they lived. If they were always in control and had difficulty showing emotions to family and friends, then they seem to struggle more.”

Do you share your emotions with others? Do you have any unresolved emotional issues?

Learning to work with emotions skillfully is good preparation for a peaceful death. What does a peaceful death look like to you?

When you consider your own death, how do you feel? Have you been present at someone else’s death? What words did they say at the threshold?

What words will you say at the threshold?

Meditation to Get Beyond Irritation

Do you ever find yourself in a state of complete and utter irritation with everything?

The next time you notice yourself feeling irritated, try this simple meditation practice… Sit in a quiet place and close your eyes. Bring your attention to your breathing. You don’t need to try to make your breathing be a certain way. Simply witness the in-breath and witness the out-breath.

Next add a mantra or affirmation. For example, I think “Om Namah Shivaya” with the in-breath and again with the out-breath. You might want to think “I am Peace” with the in-breath, and “I am Love” with the out-breath… Or you could think “I am Love” with the in-breath and “I am Light” with the out-breath…

Sit and think your mantra or affirmation with the breath until you feel the irritations dissolving. It may take twenty minutes (or longer) to achieve a feeling of peace.

Let me know how it goes!

 

May All Beings Know Deep Peace.

Guided Imagery to Send Difficult People Out to Black Holes

Are you struggling with any difficult people in your life right now?

When you are relating with a difficult person, or trying to clear them out of your energy field (if they are now gratefully in your past), the first thing to do is to realize that you are probably not ever going to change them. So, for your own peace you have to accept them, and accept yourself, exactly as you each are.

The second thing to do is to send them out to a black hole, using the tool of guided imagery. In this visualization, you are not actually wanting their physical destruction, but rather you are intending to clear their energies out of your system. Be clear that you mean them no physical harm, but you need them to clear out so that you can reclaim your own energies. When you send their energies out, you also send your own difficult thoughts, feelings, and energies out to the black hole. You are clearing out all the negativities in you that have built up in reaction to the difficult person.

The third thing to do is to visualize golden healing light pouring into you and filling you up with positive vibrations. See the golden light pulsing in all of your 37.2 trillion cells… Feel your own energies, and imagine a force field around you that protects you… Visualize all good vibes coming into you now. May healing, happiness, and love surround you.

May You Be Blessed By the Forces of Goodness!
