End of life care: I had a dream and you were in it

How could it be that I dreamt about you? Yes, I had this dream and you were in it.  What I realize now is that the dream depends on you.

This is my dream. I dreamt that you are very smart, aware and conscious of what really matters in this world.  You also are waking up to the realization that you are not going to live in this life form forever.  In the dream you were wondering what was going to happen to you when this life ends and how it will end. You wondered what it was going to be like at the end of your life.

I saw in my dream that you wanted to have some guidance in order to prepare for this happening.  But you did not want to go through this preparation alone.  You wanted to share this important venture with family or with loved ones. You wanted to be supported by others but most of all you were curious as to what it would be like to have the experience to awaken together.

Well, when I awoke from the dream I knew I had to let you know the answer to your concerns.  You already know I have written a book called, Embracing the End of Life: A Journey Into Dying and Awakening.  It is a guidebook for dying.   But it is also a guide to living now in an awake aspect of being human. This book can help release you from the driven fear that holds you attached to this life of suffering. It guides you how to open to the joy of freedom now before you die.

As I was writing this book, my constant question was, how important is it to create community discussions about the end of life like our ancestors did and like people in other countries are still doing.

Embracing the End of Life Facilitators GuideI now am now introducing a facilitators guide book just for this purpose to help to create community. Its purpose is to form a group in order to help people create an aligned caring community and support now for the end of life and opening to a more vital life now.  The facilitators guide book is a way to create such a group. It is designed to answer the question of how to get started into an end of life and awakening conversation.

The facilitators guide book will give you examples and tips on how to get started on this journey. This guide is to assist in conversations that breaks the taboo about talking about death in order to prepare for your own death and awakening. The wonder of it all is that this type of group provides a conversational experience within a context of a supportive community.

Embracing the End of Life Meditations CDIn the guide book you will find how to form a group, how to use the resources and meditations that I provide. There is also a down loadable guided meditation CD available on my website at End of Life Meditations CD that can be used in place of the written meditations.  As your group moves through Part 1 of the book this CD will be a resource as it has music, and brainwave binaural beats to drop you deeper into the meditation process. There are also 16 free videos on my website that is used in Part 2 of the book.

All in all this was quite a dream I had with you.  It is a dream I will not forget.  This dream can open you to realize what we are here for and how to release the fear of death and to awaken from the dream of this life.

gamma brain waves are active at end of life

Brainwaves at the End of Life

Many of you have had the experience of being with a friend, family member or a relative when they died. For most of us this is an unforgettable experience. When I was a hospice volunteer I was overcome again and again when someone passed. The room lit up and filled with a love that unquestionably was beyond words. When that energy and love touches us so deeply, doesn’t that make you wonder what creates the beauty of a person passing out of this life, especially when the fear of dying is so prevalent in our society?

Here is something that may give us some insight of what is happening at the end of life. There is growing research about brain waves that may shed some light on the quality of brain and mind at the time of death. As the dying process progresses the brain slows down to delta brain waves. Delta is our slowest brainwave. It is the one we are in during sleep. Also, in the dying process the right hemisphere brain activity is more prominent than the left hemisphere.

We can see what this slowing of brainwaves happening to the brain before death, but a recent seminal research study at the University of Michigan has provided more information about the brain and the dying process. The study reported that after death when the heart stops the brain continues to function and enters into heightened activity associated with wakeful conscious or gamma brainwave activity. These gamma brainwaves are the fastest waves in our brain and are associated with high concentration, conscious awareness, high lucidity and creates “feelings of blessings” and compassion when activated.

Researchers indicate that at the time of death there may be more evidence for conscious related activity than even during a normal waking state. What the research is indicating is that there is evidence that in the last moments of the dying process that the light and love filling the room that we so often feel is being generated by the person that has died.

This new awareness about the end of life is so different from all the fear we carry about our dying.  Death may not be as frightening as we may think. Death may be a time to welcome love not fear into our life.

My soon to be published book in September, Embracing the End of Life: A Journey into Dying & Awakening takes the death conversation further into learning how to shift our fear of death into becoming free of fear about dying now before we die. As a guidebook, Embracing the End of Life allows the reader to formulate how to express to our love ones our end of life wishes.
