Evonna. Blanket. June 05th , 2017.
It is impossible to fully explain the spiritual beliefs I hold, or the nature of my personal interactions with the divine realm, in the scope of this brief article, yet I must offer at least a little background so you can better understand the constant sources of my inspiration, and how the Transition Blanket eventually came to be.
It became painfully clear how ill-informed and ill-prepared our society is for the ineffable end-of-life event that will surely touch us all. In this fast-moving culture where elders are often pushed aside, viewed as burdens rather than precious reservoirs of wisdom, the ancient rituals and ceremonies that truly honor aging, and the sacred transition to the afterlife, have all but disappeared. Is it really any wonder we feel shocked, and lost, and utterly terrified when Death`s hard knuckles finally wrap upon our door?
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.
My own father was one of these lost and terrified people now, facing the most profound, unknown experience of his life. Like so many others, Dad`s natural fear of the unknown was magnified because he had so little real knowledge about where he was going or how he was supposed to get there.
The Transition Blanket proved to be the generous purveyor of the strength and comfort we all needed to find. Its miraculous powers soon transformed our family`s experience from one of tragedy and suffering into an experience of profound healing and peaceful acceptance. Yet this miracle, like this very special blanket, took a while to unfold... Our ultimate opening to the inevitable death process may represent one of life`s richest experiences.
