Inspirational Wisdom Quotes on Healing Bereavement
by Alison Stormwolf

Coming to terms with death is the greatest challenge we will face on this life journey. Death is not only inevitable it is the one constant we can be sure of.

To all of us it hold various fears and terrors depending on belief systems and faiths. I feel that once the reality of the 'normality' of this transition is addressed.... it loses much of its ability to scare us but it will always remain a time of great sorrow. Being human, we mourn the loss of the physical body of our loves ones, their presence and their personality. The dying themselves have to come to terms with the end of all they held familiar and enter into the great unknown.

In the deepest night of suffering
You are granted entry
To a sacred sanctuary
Where all those
Who have gone before and suffered
As you do
Will come silently.

Bind your wounds,
Soothe your brow,
Whisper encouragement.

The Invisible
Will see you through.

Alison Stormwolf

It is my confirmed belief that physical death is the shedding of a worn out suit of clothes to be replaced by a body of light and joy. The inevitable pain and mourning only tempered by the knowledge that the deceased is now "safe" and has joined all those on the other side. They then will be there to welcome you when your time comes.

To ease the burden of pain, we need to focus our attention on celebrating and honouring the life of the deceased, instead of focussing on only their death.  They are in a happy place and as they look down, they wish for your happiniess also.  Let your thoughts, as much as you can, be happy thoughts and memories of the deceased, so that they may feel and benefit from the blessings that your happy memories and thoughts bestow on them.

If we can rid ourselves of the medieval visions of hell and damnation and visualise instead a place of beauty and belonging that is infused with light, love and joy....... we will be more able to walk this road in a place of peace and acceptance.
