Belleruth Naparstek has some beautiful words and music..I need them these days..I see that a few BLF friends have lost relatives, they may need them too..
I have to go up to Dad’s place today to meet his doctor who phoned me yesterday, because he was on holidays when Dad passed away. He said it would be good to talk. Not looking forward to it.
And yesterday two nurses phoned to tell me how much they missed him..The head nurse Sylvie wanted to know who to give his clothes to and said she couldn’t believe he had gone. Dad’s room was just in front of the nurses’s office so he used to come out for a chat..
And Anya, a Russian care assistant, phoned me, she had been away on holidays too. He wanted to learn a word of Russian every day, he always loved languages. I had made embroidery for her, she said she would treasure it.
People are kind.
Some Belleruth ‘s words and imagery..
« You suddenly realise you are not alone..
You see that you are surrounded by gentle loving beings...warming you with their protective presence
One of them softly approaches you, and with a deep gentle look straight into your eyes,..
sending comfort and solace deep into your heart, soft waves of nourishing comfort right into your heart,
soothing the torn jagged places,
Warming and softening all around the pain
And you can breathe more deeply
Feeling your body with this generous healing energy
Perhaps letting the tears begin to melt the armour around the heart
As the kind eyes gently looking at you nod and smile
Showing you that it is understood how much hurting you have done
The stony cold aloneness you have felt
The wordless ache of longing
The stinging regret
The disappointment of interrupted dreams
The pain is understood
Breathtakingly intense at one moment and heavy and dull the next
It is understood
All the fear, the anger, the pain
All of it is understood..
You feel compassion, forgiveness and reassurance..
And suddenly you are certain that there is a place
Where nothing is lost.. »
More to listen to if you wish..
