In my many years of counseling and death work, I`ve noticed that those who`ve led an essentially "unexamined life" seem to experience far greater anxiety and suffering as death approaches. They find themselves without any meaningful way to relate to the life they`ve lived, or to the great mystery that now unfolds before them. Their end-of-life struggle and confusion creates HUGE emotional distress, and their exit, which could be and should be an elegantly peaceful process, is severely hampered. What a terrible travesty this is!
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...
In my own heart, I knew how much my father had always dreaded death and his ultimate passage into unknown realms. Once this inevitable moment was upon him, it was impossible for Dad to conceal his terror any longer. I felt certain what we`d seen on my father`s face was simply a lifetime of fear at last releasing itself; though realizing this brought little solace. I, too, felt overwhelmed at this moment, imagining what the future would be like as I struggled to make peace with this final horrific scene, and somehow bring comfort to my family in the days and years ahead.
You can personalize these blankets in a lot of ways. If you want to keep it simple, you can monogram or embroider the baby`s name on the blanket. You can also include a message if you want to. For instance, you can add a message like `You`re such a blessing`. At times, people don`t like putting a long message on the blanket. In this case, the baby`s name or a descriptive word can be used. It`s common to find blankets having a message like `Naughty Amanda` or `Pretty Jean` or `Sweet Krista`.
Another thing to consider when purchasing a snuggle blanket is its material. Today, organic materials are available in the market. One of the popular ones would be Egyptian cotton, known to have a superb cotton quality. Most blankets use cotton, but there are also other fabric used just like wool. Wool can also produce a soft blanket which is made from quality animal hair. One snuggle blanket that stands out is the Mohair blanket which uses the material of spun Angora goats hair. However, it should only be washed by dry cleaners and should never be washed by hand or washing machine.
