Evonna. Blanket. June 07th , 2017.
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.
Unfortunately, "pat" religious dogma that often preempts personal questioning and introspection can never substitute for a gentle, truly meaningful, and deeply explored experience when the end of life draws near. Unsupported by ancient beliefs, the powerful death rituals and ceremonies that once safely guided our forbears into the afterlife, how might we better prepare our "modern" selves for this inevitable end-of-life experience? What can we expect and what should we believe? Where is our roadmap? Perhaps the Transition Blanket had come to show us the way...
I felt an overwhelming personal sorrow about soon losing all physical connection with my dying father. We lived thousands of miles apart. Knowing I could help him in so many ways, if we lived closer left me frustrated and longing for deeper connection. I called upon the spirits and other compassionate energies for assistance, as is my shamanic way.
Snuggle blanket is an essential tool your small child needs to sleep well or to keep her warm during cold winter nights. Even adults need snuggle blanket from time to time. The ideal blanket for your baby is still a personal choice, of course, and your options are very wide with its different sizes, colors, and style.
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?
