Being Fully Engaged With Life

by Sophie on March 17, 2013

“Death never comes uninvited” says Abraham Hicks and from my own observation of the most intimate thoughts of some of my clients who “died before their time”, I tend to agree with that statement.

I observe two very different energy reasons for dying young. Some people die because they want to. Whatever their age, they are tired of living. They feel trapped beyond reasonable escape or broken beyond repair. So they let go energetically and they die to escape a life they do not like and do not know how to change or cannot change. Individuals in that situation manifest death. I am not talking about suicide here. I am talking about the usual culprits from cancer to heart attacks and strokes.

I also see people who do not have an active wish to die but who lose their active wish to live. They feel betrayed, heart broken, abandoned.  Out of sadness, they lose their active wish to live. Their deaths are often shocking because they gave no indication of wanting to die. Maybe they were even talking about plans for the future. But their heart was not in it. They were secretly dreading Holidays and vacations out of loneliness. They did not get over the leaving or the passing of a loved one. They may have had the freedom and the resources to manifest anything they want in their lives but, energetically, I think they die of disengaging from life and  not understanding that the consequence of not being engaged with life is to die by default. They die of not manifesting life.

Of course genetics, environmental factors and stress also plays an important role, I am not denying that. I just wanted to mention that I see some people die out of wanting to die and I see some people die out of not being engaged with living. And it reminds me that it’s important to remain fully engaged with this funny business that we call life, with the people who populate it and with the joy within all of it.

I feel you are so right on with your assessment Sophie. I have felt this in my own life and have lost friends young who seemed to feel this way too. Who can say what event or loss will be the straw that broke the camel’s back for people? Sometimes life can be filled with trauma, loss, accidents, tragedy, etc. I think what has helped me is thinking in each moment, “Am I fully here and doing my best in the circumstances I am in?” It brings me back to the present and aware that every moment requires my full presence and effort~at least while I’m here. Thanks for the gentle reminder. 🙂

Enjoyed reading this Sophie! When I think back to my 2 strokes and knowing that they both served as a mechanism for changing directions in my life, I also believe that major illnesses and accidents (as in your FB comment about how there are no true “accidents”) are also events “invited” into our lives to shake us up and help to move us along. They are all gifts and the path forward comes in recognizing them as such and acting accordingly or to “engage fully” as you put it. Thanks for the reminder.

Nobody I know understands that lesson or has acted on it more completely than you Otha! 🙂
