Evonna. Blanket. June 07th , 2017.
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.
Keenly aware of my human limitations, I often journey out to ask my wise spirit helpers and guides for advice and assistance. Now I asked the spirits to teach me how I might best serve my father in spite of the physical distance between us. During this astounding journey, not only did my trusted allies show me powerful ways to support my elders, but they also tended my own grieving heart in the most loving and intimate way. I emerged with a clear sense of purpose and renewed confidence that all would be well as soon as I followed the detailed guidance I was given. The spirits were certainly answering my urgent needs, but it also felt like they were using me to "birth" yet another powerful healing method into ordinary reality, a method I would soon feel compelled to share with others. They were teaching me how to create a beautiful transition experience for my father, which included something I didn`t yet understand... a Transition Blanket!
Receiving blankets are definitely the most versatile type of baby blanket because they are highly multi-functional and can be used for almost any purpose, including a play mat, burp cloth, swaddling blanket, breastfeeding cover and more. However, they are designed specifically to receive the baby at his birth.
Closely related to the previous point, keep in mind how thick the blanket has to be. If you want to use a picnic blanket on more uneven or harder underground then the fabric of the blanket needs to be thicker and will often have a couple more layers. The same applies for other types of waterproof blankets, especially if you`re looking at waterproof camping blankets.
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...
