The Light –
I spend a great deal of time witnessing the end of life. I often see my patient’s eyes refocus from this world to the next, their lips moving in silent conversations with invisible loved ones. I watch as they slip effortlessly between the worlds until their spirit makes that leap of Faith back to the world from which we came. I often explain the death process as similar to the birthing process. Sometimes it takes hard work-labor- to move from one world to the next but we are always greeted on either side by those that love us, we are embraced by Love and welcomed. We never die or birth alone. It is the nature of transition. People often ask me how I can work in such a depressing atmosphere, but to me death is as much a miracle as birth, indeed death is the birthing into the world of spirit. Patients who once were afraid often exhibit an opening up of the soul, the remembrance of their Divine selves, it is a hushed but lovely moment. They find Peace and Acceptance and Grace as they release their Light into the transition from this world to the next.
This week my world changed, as Birth brought with it a new Light into my world, a shift in the energy of the Earth, a Hope for all good things. This new Light has changed me in subtle ways, as I watch the Joy return to once saddened eyes. Hope has returned as grief lessened its grip on a heart. And yet the Magic is there is nothing that this little Light must do except Be, that is enough to bring Healing and Love to those around him.
It is a wonderful reminder that we all bring Light with us and just Being is enough. Who we are is perfect, we are perfectly imperfect. We are the Magic in this world. We are all Children of God, little Sparks of Divine. We just need to Remember to Shine.
