The Fear of Dying

Expert Author Norma Holt
Diagnosed with a terminal illness you see this fear in the eyes of the patients as they succumb to the news that their lives will soon be over. My sister showed it in her eyes and no amount of comfort could erase it. As one with memory of my last death and reincarnation my story was a comfort to her and we begged the Spirit for healing. The problem is she had her own way of coping and that was to follow what the medical professionals told her and she had no faith in spiritual healing.
Resigning to one's 'fate' is probably inevitable when one is strong willed and harbouring ideas that only the science of medicine can help. This is the case even when there is proven to be no cure in that region for whatever the disease is that will eventually take one's life.
It's hard to imagine what she must have felt during the short time she had left after diagnosis of pancreatic cancer, which is a quick aggressive and very painful form of the disease. At the same time as she went through that two Australians were on death row in Indonesia for drug trafficking. Every day the media focussed on their frustration and pain and yet they had apparently very healthy and fit bodies. My sister's body was rotting away.
As the time drew closer she lost interest in family and other things and one can only think of how the impacting death must have played on her mind. The last time we gathered together with her as a family was heart breaking. She was nothing but skin over bone and the area of the cancer was grossly swollen and sore to touch.
When she died it was a relief for we knew her journey was over and her pain gone. My mind, however, continues to return to her suffering and what it must have been like living out the trauma caused by the death sentence once it was given.
The pain of God is reflected in that which we feel and death is part of it. My reincarnation and passage from life to life is knowledge that we go forward and come back after death
