The Transformational Power of Death

“THERE IS LOVE THAT WILL LIVE FOREVER, AND THOSE MEMORIES THAT WILL SHINE THROUGH THE SORROW”

My mother, Helen, passed away a couple of months ago at the age of 89, after suffering immensely from congestive heart failure. Her passing continues to profoundly move my soul, teaching me about the healing and transformation that can come from death. I am dedicating this column to her as a tribute. I also want to help others address the uncomfortable topic of death and provide some healing insights.

Even though we were prepared for her transition, I was devastated on the morning the phone call came from my sister telling me that mom had died. Usually, the first thing I do is to send light and love to someone who passes so that they can cross-over with ease and grace. But I was too emotional to do this, so I just kept repeating the mantra, “Momma, I love you.” And that, instead, became my prayer.
