When I heard the news of Queen Elizabeth’s passing, I was at my desk. London Bridge is Down – Operation London Bridge enacted. I stopped and just felt the energy around me for a few moments. If you sat quietly you could feel the wave of peace and incredible love that was in the air. The moment someone transitions to the other side is magical and sacred. Why they say take a moment of silence. We are not prepared for the magnitude of the moment. The overwhelming emotions and grief.
What should you do?
Sure there are arrangements that need to be taken care of, there are people to notify. When you are with someone in that moment that is not the most important thing you should do. There will be plenty of time for that. I am talking about being present. In the moment, surrounded by love. Not only of your loved one that passed, but the Universe itself. As you pay attention —
- what are you feeling?
- What might they be experiencing?
- Who else can you sense in these moments?
The irony is that our loss, is a joyful reunion. Knowing this makes it a more beautiful moment. Think of the countless dogs and horses that met her on the Rainbow Bridge and all of her loved ones that were there to greet her.
