Thanatology is the study of death and dying. Thanatologists, like Dr. Raymond Moody, author of Life After Death, were able to define through countless studies of those who've had near death experiences that their IS life after death. He uncovered common traits that people experience when they have a near death experience which are:
The knowledge that there is life after death should be incorporated into your own life as well as the life of your family, friends and people who you meet along your path to eternal life. We urge you to study and become more aware of how to use this knowledge to help people who fear death. Make their transition a happy and joyous experience. Treat their families so they may celebrate in the knowledge that their love-ones are not suffering and lost forever. They have simply migrated to a beautiful spiritual world that is filled with pure unconditional love. One day they will once again meet and be with them.
How Reiki Helps People Who Are Dying
Reiki connects every living organism to the energy known as Universal Life Force. Everything that is alive emits an electromagnetic pulse that is discernable and measurable. Those who have had near death experiences always speak of the energy of unconditional love. When a Reiki healer provides Reiki to those who are terminally ill, they’re connecting that person to the Unconditional Love of the Creator of All that Is, Source Energy, Divine Intelligence, Creator God Consciousness to support their transition from releasing the physical body back to pure spirit, pure energy, as they were before they were born into flesh, blood and bone. A Reiki treatment may temporarily revitalize the person in transition so that they may become energized to complete any unfinished business they may have in any area of their life.
It’s important to help those in transition when possible so that they can tidy up their affairs to make a peaceful transition. For example, they may feel more inspired to heal and mend any strained relationships with family or loved ones supporting their ability to surrender any unnecessary anger or pain and come to a sense of peace. It is very important to understand that death is not failure in life, it is an absolute and an inherent aspect of the cycle of life. Reiki can support a peaceful transition by encouraging family members and friends to find peace by sharing loving goodbye’s to the dying person providing them comfort that everyone will be okay when they transition and their love will live forever in their hearts. Sharing feelings of love for all concerned often brings relief and peace for a peaceful transition for the dying person.
Treating the family and friends if possible with Reiki after their loved one has passed on can greatly benefit them by bringing them peace and reducing their anxiety as they move through the grief process. It’s been found that when loved ones pass, the living loved ones find it extremely difficult to come to terms with losing a close family member or friend. Reiki helps soothe their emotional pain with unconditional love and Reiki energy and can quell the anxiousness and physiological aspects associated with grief.
