The Beautiful Gift of Death


“For most people, death is probably the single most joyous experience of their life.” I remember hearing these words from my mystic teacher of past life regression. I found his words to be true as I later became a past life regression therapist, guiding thousands of people to other lives their soul has lived. In these sessions, people experience glimpses of entire lifetimes in an hour or two. These lives are often full of unique challenges and transitions, but one thing they have in common is that they all come to an end.

Embracing the End

Yet the end of life is where the fun begins for the soul. It’s a time of moving up to a higher vibration that feels like “home.” It’s a time of reunion, of basking in unconditional love and acceptance no matter how badly we feel we screwed up our lives. It’s a time of reflection and evaluation of how we handled the challenges of that life, especially loss.

Reflection and Evaluation

Did we shut down and guard our hearts, allow the grief process to naturally run through us, and then have the courage to love again or be the source of comfort for those who inevitably experience loss? The afterlife is also a time of planning for the next life, to again challenge ourselves with whatever we want to learn, accomplish, or experience as a soul.

The Earthly Challenge

Earth life is designed to be challenging. The soul’s instinct is to grow and evolve, and it uses earth lives to do so, especially since earth is one of the most difficult places to incarnate, due largely to the strong amnesia of our permanent soul self.

Spiritual Awakening

Eckhart Tolle says we grow the most on the heels of tragedy or loss. Indeed, I’ve witnessed many people begin their spiritual journey after the death of a loved one. As the sage Adyashanti put it, “The spiritual search is Life trying to be conscious of itself.” As we begin to awaken and identify more with our true nature while living this life, our fears evaporate, life flows more easily, and we will have created a more fulfilling life to reflect upon when we joyously cross over to the other side.
