Another Angel Gets Her Wings

In the last several years I’ve had a number of friends and relatives pass away, many before their time.  The latest loss was the death of my beautiful sister Peggy.  Although she had health problems, her passing at age 57 was unexpected, shocking, and much too soon.

Learning to deal with death is a part of life.  When we’re very young, we can usually avoid thinking much about it, but as we advance through life it’s inevitable that more and more of the people that we know and love will pass on.  And as we get older too, we have to eventually face our own mortality.

Some people chose to bury their head in the sand regarding death, no matter how old they get or how many loved ones that they lose.  They just don’t want to think about it.  Most people however, struggle to come to terms with death either through religion, spirituality, or even atheism.  Regardless of which philosophy or spiritual path one practices, most people believe that human beings have immortal souls and that there is an afterlife.

I’m of the belief that our consciousness is immortal and that our real home is an eternal and heavenly spiritual plane.  I believe that the spiritual dimension is where we come from when we are born, and that when our bodies die this is where we return with full awareness of who we are and who we have been.  My belief isn’t based on wishful thinking, but is based on a lifetime of study and personal experiences.  I don’t feel the need to preach my beliefs to others and I try to respect how others come to their own particular viewpoints.

In her younger years, Peggy bellydanced professionally under the stage name of ‘Lilah.’  Audiences responded warmly to the beauty of her dancing and her loving spirit.  Family and friends remember her kind heart and her fun loving (and funny!) personality.  We miss her so much!

Peggy has now earned her angel wings.  She loved to dance in life and I’m sure she is now dancing in heaven.  When I dance it feels like I too have wings.  The music and the movement seem to temporarily transport me to a higher realm.  It is here that I feel closer to my sister and to all my cherished ones who have already gone home to that better place.
