Hospice series 1 ~Meeting

Some of you might know I am now volunteering for Chilliwack Hospice Society.

Please, please take a moment to open this video clip. It is such a wonderful group.

Anyways, I didn't know anything about "Hospice", I didn't know the meaning of "Hospice", I haven't heard the word "Hospice" until 5~6 years ago.

I met Hospice, because of Reiki.

But, I didn't know anything about Reiki before I met Reiki. (please visit my blog page of why I started to do Reiki
I didn't know anything about Hospice before I met Hospice.

However, both Reiki and Hospice became to be a BIG part of my life now.

Life is very interesting.

I learned Reiki, because I simply wanted to help my child who was suffering 
with severe case of eczema. Then I got excited about Reiki, and pursued to 
a Reiki teacher course and started to teach Reiki. Not knowing Reiki would 
change my life completely.

This is my first introduction to the Chilliwack Hospice Society.
 My friend was attending a ESL class and she had to interview with 
a Hospice worker as part of a school project. Through the interview, 
my friend heard that Hospice society offers energy healing sessions for 
their clients. 

She thought I would be interested in knowing what Hospice Society is 
offering because of my deep passion for Reiki, which is a form of 
energy healing technique. 

She said to me,
"Do you know Hospice Society?"

I said,
"Hospice?  Is it a Hospital?"

She said,
"Hospice is a facility for people who at the end of the life. They support
people who are dying, and their families."

Rrrrring ! 

... Support the people who are dying?  I love that idea !

So, I went crazy to research about Hospice society. I found it very fascinating that
there is a organization that support people to have a peaceful death.

By the way,
I am a firm believer of reincarnation. I know death is not the end of the life.
Because, I feel spirits around me all the time, I sense they are trying to connect
with us (alive people), I hear sounds they are trying to make. So I know they are
not dead, but still alive in a different form.

I just don't "see" them. 
I remember as a child, I was so scared of ghosts, even though I had never 
seen it before.  

I always bring my little hands in prayer position and look up the sky and begged,

"God and Buddha, please don't give me a gift of being able to see ghost and spirits!"

I just love the idea of supporting people who are dying, so their transition 
to the death will be peaceful. I believe peaceful death will bring a peaceful birth 
as our life is just like a season. 

I believe, Birth-youth-older-death is the cycle of the life, it repeats and continues.

I also think, it doesn't have to start with Birth. It can be Older-death-birth-youth.
It could be death-birth-youth-older. In other words, we can start our life anytime. 

That means, we can reset our life anytime.

I don't remember when I started to think this way, but probably from Buddhist monks teaching through many funerals and memorial service that I have attended...

So, this is just the beginning of how I ended up volunteering with Hospice Society....

Not so exciting story, but I still love writing about it!

Continue to Hospice series 2.
