    Are you scared of dying?

    Post  Violet on Thu Jul 01, 2010 12:10 am

    First topic message reminder :

    Are you scared of dying, or just how you will die, or do you have no fear at all of any part of death?
    Have your beliefs (whatever they are,) helped you fear it less, more, or not made any difference?

    I'm sure the thought of leaving loved ones behind is a big worry when we're about to depart and adds to any other fears we have, I wonder how hard it is to look in on family and perhaps see them in a bad way or in danger it must be so frustrating as surely you'd want to help them (this is why I don't believe family members can be spirit guides,) we must be helped some way with this when we do pass, with the 'letting go.'

    hurting people is my only fear of dying.
    i think you could be a guide to a family memeber violet, because after you've passed you are not that present personality anymore, you don't have those attachments. out of love you will do what is best for that person/s. and you will know that even if something "bad" happens to them you will rejoice for the growth in their soul.

    I spent Saturday and Sunday at the hospital bedside of a dying friend. He passed away at about 6pm. Fortunately all his family had managed to see him at some time during Sunday. After they had left and we were ready to take his wife home the blood slowly drained from his face and we realised he was preparing to leave.
    As his spirit form gradually withdrew from his physical body it was quickly apparent that the latter was only a shell - in a few minutes it was empty.
    I called the nurse who drew the curtains around his bed. The nurse asked me if I had ever seen a dead body to which I replied 'many times'. I added that I believed in the continuity of life at which I received a funny look.
    I can understand why people are scared of dying but in reality it is a painless and peaceful process.

    Hi Sparkly I don't believe we lose any part of our personality, and i'd have thought the attachments were still there in the early days especially, but I could be wrong.

    Hi Zerdini, i'm sorry for your loss.
    When I have seen family who have died I found it quite shocking, almost disturbing the first time (I was 18) to see just how truly 'vacant' their body was, they are so 'not there' it does shock you, there is no trace of them, it is just as you say a shell they don't even look like them any more.

    thanks zerdini for sharing.
    violet, i respect your opinion, even though it opposes all i've read on the subject, in the sense of evolving as a being. i'm not saying you would change unrecognizably, but you'd see things from a fuller perspective, being withdrawn from the setting of your life right now, kinda like on the set of "cheers" when the camera pans out of the studio....
    i do have one friend who has died five times (said she was a slow learner) who told me about the angelic beings with love, then the next stage of "things grabbing at ye." i suggested that was scary and she said "no, because your mind is not your own" - you are not attached to it. i'm not saying she's right, but worth considering.

    yes tony and we are always surrounded by angelic beings, those that have never been separated from source.
    i'm watching "cheers" right now where sam vows not to have sex for three months (having made a pact with god for escaping paternity). sam nearly falls down till he sees a bible in the nightstand..he and his crush go from hotel to hotel. he thinks god is speaking to him through bibles following him round wherever he goes....
    we are all at source all the time, we've just forgotten it.

    "When I have seen family who have died I found it quite shocking, almost
    disturbing the first time (I was 18) to see just how truly 'vacant'
    their body was, they are so 'not there' it does shock you, there is no
    trace of them, it is just as you say a shell they don't even
    look like them any more."

    I listen closely to the words people use and the way they use 'em. Have you ever noticed how folks will say "my body" or "his body" when something serious happens to cause illness, fatigue, injury or death etc? Instead of referring to "me" or "he"?

    It's almost as if we instinctively know that we are not our bodies, that they are simply the outward manifestation of the individuals living in them....

    I noticed that especially one evening watching the TV reconstruction of a family lost in dense woods in a snow storm. After 8 days waiting to be rescued the father tries to walk to get help. He dies in the attempt and a would-be rescuer was in tears as he expanded on how this father walked and walked in the freezing conditions "until his body just gave out on him".

    In his emotions, but without saying it, he appears to separate the spirit of man from his body. He doesn't say "he" when he speaks about the father, perhaps subconsciously understanding that the father had passed over and only the shell remained.

    There is definately an 'emptyness' about a body when the spirit departs.
    I was with my mother and my grandmother when they died.
    My gran was actually sitting across from me,in her armchair,napping when I felt a quietness in the room.
    It is a quietness that is different from someone physically leaving a room to go elsewhere.
    I felt it so much,I actually got up and raised her head slightly then noticed all was not well.
    That night when I was in bed I was restless,I felt the soft touch of a hand across my forehead then dropped off to sleep imnediately.

    She literally passed away in the chair,Sparkly.
    I wasn't aware of this,I was knitting at the time and it was the silence that made me look up.
    Overwhelming silence.
    I had looked at her earlier,but she seemed ok,just made a small sound and her head drooped so I went back to my knitting.
    It was about 30 mins after that when as I said this silence descended so I checked her again.
    I am so pleased I was there when she passed.

    that is very interesting about the silence, isn't it?
    do you think maybe she wanted to pass this way in order to show you how peaceful it could be?

    ....Death, the fear of all, the wish of some, the relief of many, is the end of none – it is but a transition from one plane of existence to another.

    She passed very peacefully,Z
    The evening before,as I was sitting on the side of her bed, she said to me with a laugh 'I could be pushing up the daisies tomorrow by now'. We chided her and told her not to be so silly'.
    Wonder if she had a feeling she wasn't going to be long in this world.
