Evonna. Blanket. June 06th , 2017.
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.
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.
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.
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?
