Evonna. Blanket. June 07th , 2017.
I have spent my entire adult life in a career of service, helping people in difficult life situations. As a licensed psychologist, I`ve worked with thousands of individuals over the years. I am a seasoned alternative healer as well, primarily in shamanic practices, having received formal training and intense individual instruction from powerful medicine people. I teach shamanic classes on death and dying. I`m a certified Reiki master and have been actively merging my shamanic training with Reiki disciplines for ten years. Yet none of this extensive experience had fully prepared me for this time when I would be called to usher my own family through the gates.
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.
I created a Transition Blanket in preparation for my father`s imminent death. To this day, this sacred object continues to bestow life-altering blessings on my entire family. I`m convinced that this divinely inspired gift is meant to reach far beyond my own family after witnessing what this blanket did not only for my gather, but for all who experienced its healing power. This is the story of how the first Transition Blanket came into being, and the remarkable impact it had on everyone it touched.
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.
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.
