My husband’s aunt is dying of stomach cancer. The cancer has caused her to not be able to swallow. She can only sip water now. As her family rallies around her to say their good-byes and to try to support her death I am watching the process, again.
Death is a part of life and we all will go through this. Some years ago I took care of my mother in law while she died of cancer. I was the primary care giver and the experience was extremely emotional. Today’s events have brought back a lot of the feelings from my past experience. I guess this is the reason for this post. I felt the need to talk about the fear of death.
This is the third time I have been a close witness to this fear. I was asked to help a friend calm a relative in this situation. I recorded a type with calming music and subliminal messages of peace. As I ponder why we are so afraid of death I have had these thoughts.· We have to go through this experience alone. No one can go with us.· The experience is unknown. We all have a fear of the unknown.· It is final. It is the end of what we know.
I used to believe that I was not afraid of death because I have had a near death experience. When I gave birth to my first daughter I died for a few minutes. I had an out of body experience. I believed when it was my time to die I would not fight it or be afraid. Now I am not so confident in that knowledge. A few years ago I took a scuba class with my daughter that made me question my belief. It took me 20 minutes to put my head into the water without holding my breath. My will to live (or my fear of death) is much greater than I ever thought possible. So when it becomes my time to die, how much fear will I be faced with? I do not know. The only thing I am sure of is, I will find out it. Because we have the experience of life we will have the experience of death.
