In fact, ancient Tibetan traditions teach that death is life`s most important event. One`s own impending death, or the death of a loved one, holds great potential for shifting priorities and reframing relationships more profoundly than any other earthly event. Renewed and reshaped perceptions have the power to alter both physical and non-physical realities in surprising ways that can contribute enormously toward an aware and awakened life. Yet the looming sense of loss and finality that fills the heart and mind as death approaches can precipitate either great healing or emotionally devastating results. Death becomes the Master Teacher during such deeply transformational times. And so it was for my family...
We will start with cotton blankets. Cotton has been around for thousands of years and is a major player in all bedding. Using cotton alone for a blanket really didn`t work well because it will not stand up to frequent washings. When synthetics were discovered it was decided to blend them with the cotton to add strength and durability for a better blanket. Fibers like polyester and acrylic will improve a cotton blanket, especially if you are looking for a blanket that will not wrinkle very much and can be washed quite often. But if you have allergies or sensitive skin a 100% cotton blanket would be better for you. For a heavier cotton blanket you should look for a woven cotton blanket in a herringbone mesh pattern or a basket weave pattern to keep you warm and will still be breathable and soft.
The quality of a waterproof blanket is very important as well. More expensive blankets will often be more durable and reliable than cheap blankets. But the reason I`ve placed this factor last is because the previous decisions you made will ultimately decide the quality of the blanket in most cases. If you`re buying a blanket for camping, it will be more durable than a dog blanket. Only when you have decided on all previous factors, will you have to choose between build quality. And in many cases the choice will be perfectly clear anyway.
Security blankets, as the name itself suggests, are designed to make babies and toddlers feel secure and comfortable at bedtime or in other unusual situations. Often made of an ultra-soft material like fleece, these blankets usually come with a stuffed animal attached.
Sheets or blankets with high thread count can seem impressive, but don`t be lured into buying these just for that factor. Touching and feeling the blanket is the best way to judge if the softness is just right for you. All the other numbers don`t matter, except for the measurements, of course.
