Death. Do we choose it or does it choose us? Some say that we CANNOT die before our time but we don’t know when that time will be.
My sister Anthia died when she was only 27. We can say that she was too young to die. On the other hand, how can I say that, when I was given the premonition of her death and I had dreams of her death a full year before she died. I was only 16 at the time and these dreams were quite confusing to me until she died and I was able to put it all together and realized that life was preparing me for her death.
What I remember most clearly about her life, was that she lived it and enjoyed it. She loved buying beautiful shoes and clothes. One day, I overheard my mom scolding her about buying too many shoes. She said to her, “You must save your money. Why do you keep on buying all these clothes are shoes?” This did not bother Anthia – she continued shopping for beautiful things. I can still see the happiness and glow on her when she dressed – she was exquisite. I am so glad that she shopped for her heart’s desires.
We spent many, many evenings in my parent’s old kitchen talking about books, movies, boys and life. Being several years older than me, I felt it special that my oldest sister and I could talk for such long hours. Her best friends became my friends and I still love and adore them because of the gift that they too gave me by accepting me in their lives so completely. Now, I know why God, in his wisdom, granted me so much time with her, in her short time.
Did her soul know that she had only a short earth life and she needed to make the most of it?
I also know, based on my dreams and connections with the spirit world, that there is also nothing to be afraid of death as the soul only transitions to the other life with a higher dimension. Anthia, my mom, dad and other loved ones continue to communicate with me. They are still very present in my life.
Anthia had high expectations for me and expected me to excel at school. For every prize and award that I have received, I silently thank her for her confidence in me and always speaking to me in a way that made me think of using my talent on this earth. She had an aspiration that I would be a writer one day because she loved reading the poems and silly things I wrote about. Well, so many years later, here I am writing away on this blog.
TuneIn to LIVE YOUR LIFE FULL. StepUp to listen to that inner voice within you and that calling within your heart even though it means that sometimes you have to take a risk. Don’t be afraid to say what you need to say to someone or do what you need to do for them. If you had only the next moment left to live, what would you do or not do?
If you have lost a dear one and you are reading this blog now, I am receiving a message now, to let you know that your loved one is perfectly fine. They have entered into a spirit dimension which is all love and light. It was their time to go and nothing could have stopped it – they chose to go back to the spirit world. All they ask of us is to continue remembering them as loving us. Don’t be sad for their crossing over – celebrate their life and their spirits.
Here is a video by Steve Jobs which takes the message closer home.
