From my own experience as a nurse, dying is the hard part, the physical body fighting for that last breath.
Once, what is called the soul, the energy force passes - lifts out of - leaves - there is only a empty shell.
With one woman, I was leaving the room to get the head nurse and as I crossed the doorway, I felt like the air around me hugged me, a gentle pressing
in and than gentle release. I think I felt her last breath and or her soul leaving?
With others I have felt a, the only good word that describes this is energy, lift out of, take leave of the physical body. With younger people the
energy force seems to feel stronger compared to old people.
Now according to Einstein, energy never totally "dies" it changes form.
I lost my mother at 10 to lung cancer, she was 53. We were very lucky because she was diagnosed, operated on and passed within two weeks. There was
no chemo, no radiation, no wasting away or pain, she was here one week and gone the week after.
I do not fear my own death, (dying might be a little scary as I don't like pain). I do fear the abandonment, the leaving of those loved ones that
might go before me.
Death, the loss of a loved one's touch, words and presence is a real bummer.
But, I don't think we truely die or dissolve into nothingness.
I do hope when I die, I go back to the whole known as "god" and not have to go through countless incarnations and all this bs again.
One of my patients was a old lady that had celebrated her 100th birthday. The next day, I sat with her holding her hand and I said, "Well you've made
it one hundred years, hopefully you'll have a lot more." She replied, "Honey, I've lived on this ball of dirt for now over a century, I am really
tired and am ready to go." After she whispered this, she sighed and I felt her energy force just simply lift out and gently leave. She was indeed
Each death I have witnessed was unique and different because each energy force, soul, is unique and different, but I have felt a energy force numerous
times so there's more to us than this physical body.
I think we simply go from being a spiritual body trapped in a third dimensional body to being free of this flesh container and go on to another
We are all here for a purpose. Your job is to find out what that purpose is and embrace and fulfill that purpose.
I hope this helps make you feel better.
There is more to you than what is starring back at you when you look in the mirror. That body you are lugging around is just a shell, not the real
Enjoy each and every day you have. Live, laugh and love. Don't spend useless time hating, seeking revenge or being sad and thinking about death.
My husband's father dropped dead at 44 of a heart attack. So my husband promptly quite smoking (his father smoked), he also quite eating high
cholestrol foods, started running 6 days out of 7 and saw a doctor every year. Two years ago they found a leak around his aeorta valve, this happened
from when he was nine and had scarlet fever. Normally this is hard to diagnose but he simply complained about not being able to get a better running
time and that comment made our doctor investigate further with more test that found the leak. So find a good doctor, do what your told and keep a
mental note on your health.
He went in for open heart surgery. He is now 66 and has survived his father by 22 years. He watches his weight, does exactly what the doctor tells
him and follows the protocol for optimum health.
The heart surgeon said that while he was rooting around in there, he checked over his arteries and they were cleaner than most 30 year
olds..............my husband has been on cholestrol lowering medicine for years because even though he did everything recommended, he naturally had
high cholestrol (many things are genetic, his father had high cholestrol).
I am 58 and have survived my mother by 5 years. I don't smoke, she did and died of lung cancer.
If you fear an early death, than keep check of what your parents and grandparents died of and stay on top of it.
Life is a precious gift. If you are lucky enough to have a pc, a roof over your head, food in your belly, a warm, dry, secure place to sleep and
clean water you are quite lucky.
And who knows, by the time you hit old age, medical science may have already extended life even longer than now.
If you really fear death, don't smoke, if you have an addictive personality than don't drink or do drugs, switch that addiction to exercise, eat
healthy, take vitamins, get regular medical check ups and don't take unnessary risks.
Lastly, and in my own humble opinion, I don't believe in a heaven or hell, I think we either incarnate again like progressing in school from grade to
grade or go back to being a part of the whole not losing our memories or that which makes us each a unique individual, but we truely never die, our
energy just changes form.
