Death is something that comes for us all. No escaping .Its the one thing we all have in common. . Death has touched me in a profound way. From my own experiences with loved ones passing. To being present and assisting death as a nurse.
We tend to forget that Death is as sacred and as beautiful as life.
Palliative care is close to my heart and will always be. It is such an Honour to be able to just be there, when a person takes the Journey home.
Also being there for family and friends is a big part of it, to explain what “medically” is happening as the body is preparing to go home, or a as shoulder to cry on.
No words are needed sometimes; we can heal with our presence also.
If as nurses/ carers/ healers we can make the transition less painful for all, it’s a good death.
I am most passionate about “dying a good death”
That we did above and beyond..to ensure every detail from “dying wishes” to the needs and comfort of those left behind is treated with respect, love and integrity.
There are many faces of death, (not just a literal/physical death) which we all encounter at some particular point or another as we are walking our path. Particularly when we loose a loved one. We can come face to face with it on a daily basis: Denial, Anger, Grieving, Acceptance, Releasing, and letting go.
Rebirth is what awaits, that is the gift of death.
My Guides come in around death and offer that innate inner wisdom, to trust the process of death.
AA Azriel ~I first saw him over 10 yrs ago as the Angel of death.
He is a constant reminder to me of how truly loved we are and brings comfort to all those who need it.
He has helped shaped my belief that we return home and death is not the end.
The soul really is magnificent as when it is leaving this world as to when it is coming in to it.
