Case in point: it comes along after the proverbial fact to give us shit for having [maybe] missed an opportunity, when it’s actually its perspective we’d been seeing things from in the first place (thus causing us to not see – or to ‘shy away from’ – said opportunity)!
It hides all your best gifts on the other side of your fears [and who’s inclined to even think to look there, right?].
Search online for “death, meaning” and you’ll be presented with answers like ‘end of life’ and /or ‘cessation of vital functions’. Personally, I find that really funny, in that supposed descriptions of what death is are actually definitions that are not only dependent upon but in a practical sense actually only describe what it’s not.
And if an appreciation of death (as a ‘thing’ or event) is dependent upon an understanding of what it means to be ‘alive’, we find ourselves on a whole contraindicative slope of ascertaining what ‘life’ is. We can generally talk about definitions of life as predicated on the idea of matter animated by a life ‘force’, but for the fact that even what we define as dead plant matter nourishes life (as compost, for example), must it not by extension (still) have some ‘life’ in it?
Our physical self is great matter for our spirit. It connects you to your experience in ways that your presupposed thoughts alone can’t. For the majority of us (not having a conscious appreciation of having experienced it before), death causes us to surrender to sensation, apart even from how our thoughts rationalize or interpret those sensations.
‘The’ truly personal journey, the expiration of our physical bodies, death inspires us to an appreciation of aspects of life we’re otherwise inclined to deny. Whether your own appears imminent, or is a long way off, ultimately, there’s no ‘thinking’ our way through it. It’s the one education that our minds can’t ‘solve’ for us, and as such, it grounds us in visceral experience.
It sets the appeal that you trust your intuition and throw the net of your awareness out into the world around you, pulling in truths that may defy your intellect, your rational mind, and what your conditioning might wish to (superficially) espouse.
This is a response to a message I received from LinkedIn asking me about ‘Trends in my Industry’ …
Well, it’s a ‘trend’ that we feel we need to make an effort to directly control things, or we won’t be on the same road our Dreams are. The truth is, though, that by endeavouring to manipulate things, we won’t be. Self-will limits what Spirit can provide, because it limits what we’re capable of believing we Deserve. It begs the question, ‘are you desiring something that’s actually Good for you (and others), or is it possible that you can manifest something Bigger and Better?’ What motivates us isn’t necessarily in our Highest, best interest. ‘Going right’ might get us what we’re conditioned to want, but not what we well and truly Need.
Another trend is fear, of ‘bad news’, of change, a detour, loss, and /or disappointment. In our grasping at what we imagine is ‘valuable’, we miss our lifedream’s inherently invaluable message: that sometimes, our going in circles is right on target. It’s an invitation to becoming a Master… and what do you imagine that’s worth?

‘Because it seems I’ve been hurt or experienced such fear while living it, how can my lifedream be valuable? How can something that seems so out of balance in its presentation of grief and pain be worth anything?’
Whether it’s physical, emotional or spiritual, ‘suffering’ is a soul-level tool for (not directly providing, but) accessing information; it focuses and directs our attentions (sometimes by way of diversion).
It motivates Profound self-reflection, which in its right medicine inspires us to recognize and stand up for what we Believe in, regardless of the opinions, judgements or (dis)approval of others or our conditioned selves. With the benefit of those insights, we’re actually able to move past self-pity and cynicism, be instilled with clarity, come into alignment with our own strength and Beauty, and recognize and be motivated by our own Divine personal purpose.
And if you don’t know it already, I can help you Prove that you are (and /or if you kinda already know it but haven’t revealed it to yourself in a way that you can actually use your abilities, I’ve got some incentive for you that’ll get you moving on it)!
You’re here to do use your gifts on Spirit’s behalf, and it’s time to open them up and share them!
I titled this drawing “Per Mission”, partly because there’s what I’d identify as a ‘mission’ in the background (to the left of centre), but moreso because it stressed the importance of verifying that you have a subject’s permission before doing anyone’s psychic illustration.
Assisting in illumination of your lifedream through 'soul-medicine' wisdom, dream symbolism, past-life /karmic reading and resolution, channeling, drawing as a healing medium, and energy healing. In Loving service, David 'Black Feather' Nagy
