Haunting

These past two years have brought me face to face with the intensity, passion, sadness, deepness, beauty, and just monumental power of death. I've been going back and forth wondering why it is that I've had to experience such deep and personal and consistent losses and slowly, at every moment, it's coming together for me.
Last week I took my five year old to the Going Home/Life Celebration of a dear sister-friend's father. The ceremony was beautifully moving and haunting.

(haunt·ing ˈhôn(t)iNG/ adjective
poignant and evocative; difficult to ignore or forget.  
"the melodies were elaborate and of haunting beauty"
synonyms:evocative, emotive, affecting, moving, touching, stirring, powerful).

The week before I spent about several hours creating three beautiful memorial collages and one 22 Page Scrapbook for an uncle-friend who passed and was so moved by all the lives he had affected and the full life he lead in those short, wonderful 71 years. At the hospital when I went to see him I was reminded of the moment I witnessed the last breathe of my dearest sister-friend's mother in love last year and the last labored breathes of my uncle four years ago.
The only time I was in the room for a birth was for the birth of my son and the first breathe he took melted and eased my soul. The one time I was in the room for the passing of a dear, loved, and revered friend that last breathe melted my heart and also eased my soul.

Today I am seeing the synchronicity, the blessing, the magic, the wonder, the simpleness of life and death.  I just felt the desire and need to share.

One of my favorite motivators is Dr. Wayne Dyer and he always expresses that death is really like just moving into a different room, I'd like to elaborate and say death is like moving into all of time and space, simultaneously. Death is haunting and so grace filled, as is life. 

What are your thoughts, experiences, and feelings about life and death?


Have a blessed and mindful day friends!

Love transcends all things.  Trust in the wonder and power of your dreams.
