Doorway To Paradise (2 IMAGES)

I’m not too sure if I will be able to answer any comments because of my breaking Heart.  Yet  I will do my best. Just in case my Mom is still viewing my Petals and for her pleasure, I will keep on posting at this time in my Life, even if it is difficult for me to do.  My Mom LOVES flowers and she has fallen hard for those very flowers I photograph.  In creating these posts mainly for her viewing pleasure, this is the role I choose as she gently leaves this world to enter the Next.  These posts are my Gift to my Mom.

Today I am led to show an image (above) that to me speaks so beautifully of the Transition my Mom is heading towards.  A beautiful opening in lush Green, a Green she adores, beckons to the observer to come closer and to walk through.  I actually walked through the “Door” after I took this picture and as I did I felt a Peace and heard the words …

The Old is behind and the New is ahead.

Dying is beautiful.  I know.  There is nothing to fear.  Nothing.  I had a NDE in 1984 and believe me, no matter who you are, and no matter who you are leaving behind, you do not wish to return to this realm.  It is Instant 100% Unconditional Love in the space of a breath, if that.  Every single atom of your Being is filled with Light and with Love, and that only upon which you know you are Loved.

You are Loved for who you are unconditionally and without judgment.  When I died I was so far away from living the Higher Way, yet in that Moment I was not turned away but only accepted and embraced in Love.  Truly, and I say this without double guessing myself, this was and will be the most beautiful Moment of my Life.

And my Mom is heading towards that Place I know exists. I wish I were going with her.  Yet that is not to be for my work is yet to be done …

On August 12th I was at Chestnut Ridge Park when this picture was taken.  Instead of taking my usual trail I decided to go on another one I normally do not frequent.  Yes I had my Canon with me because I had a feeling I would actually witness the path of the tornado that hit here several weeks ago.  And I was right.  At first when I arrived I stopped in my tracks and just stared.  It was awful as I looked upon total devastation.  Tears came and my Heart just, broken as it is, broke more.  Standing amongst the ruins of what used to be hundred years old trees, the Forest spake to me.

I being who I am, chose to allow the tornado to hit me directly to save those lives in the homes just around the bend.  

Knowing this Forest as I do, the very one who on countless occasions has taken my pain and my fears and my tears and transformed them into Love and into Peace, I knew the words that whispered that day were true.  I will be posting the pictures to show you how we are no match for Mother Nature, to be sure but before I do I want to make sure with my Mom they will not upset her.  If they do, I will choose only flowers to post and after she walks through the Doorway to Paradise, I will then show you the devastation left in that tornado’s wake.  Yes those images show beauty even with the Forest being torn and snapped and smashed.

In closing, the Flower Picture for today’s post is a capture of my fiery red/orange roses called Fragrant Cloud.  Who may you ask is in the background?  Why that is Jersey, one of our Beloved barn cats from next door who lives in my gardens and who has become my Photographer’s Assistant.  Now if she would only learn how to stay still and stop head bumping me when I kneel down.  😉  For you, Mom ….

    1. Oh, thank you, Irene! As I told my Mom on the phone this morning, these posts are straight from my Heart and she told me she does know. I also asked her to forgive me because I will not be there sitting by her side as I want to due to all I have in my life. She responded, “There is nothing to forgive.” She really understands why I must do what I am. Oh yes, this truly is Unconditional Love we have learned with each other! I pray for the same … that my Mom at the end actually walks down this Blissful Path to the Door that leads to Paradise. Bless you this day, dear friend. I pray you are getting stronger! ❤

  4. So sorry for your heartache, Amy. Your NDE gave me a warmth and peace about death, thank you! Reminds me of my dream after my father’s death and reassures me that he was, definitely, at peace just like it appeared and felt. Beautiful photos!💞-Anne

    1. Anne, there truly is nothing to fear about dying. The actual moment when we zip into the next Realm is amazing. I also know there is no “death” for Energy cannot die. There is just a transference of that Energy to a different form. Your Dad is in the Better Place. I know. Much Love to you this day! ❤

    1. Thank you so much, Pete. I am not able to be physically present with my Mom the way I want to be, so for her, I am posting straight from my Heart. Even though this is difficult for me to do, I do this for my Mom. Trying to wrap my head around that my Mom’s days are limited is so very hard. Yet my Comfort is knowing where she is going is really and truly the Better Place. Many Blessings to you! ❤

      1. I watched my own Mom fade and slip away somes years ago now, Amy, and I know it is so very heartbreaking for you and family. But I am glad you have that insight and comfort. That is a blessing in itself. Love and Light.

  5. I know this must be a hard time for you, and I’m cyber hugging you hard. Quiet moments when only the forest speaks, good stuff. I’m in a transitional time as well, not quite a month since my father passed. I know the way you know, new things are coming. I am open. I feel happy that you’re open too. Big love to you, Amy. ❤

    1. (((HUGS))) in return, Joey … tears. Your heartache is still so acute and so fresh and your concern about me moves me. Yes I am open yet as we both know the loss on this side of the Veil is so traumatic. Stay strong, dear friend. Much Love to you!! ❤

    1. Thank you and Bless you, Dan. Please convey to your wife my deep gratitude as well for the thoughts and prayers. In speaking with my bio sis today on the phone, we both in tears, agreed that loosing Mom is incredibly so much harder then loosing our Dad a little over 2 years ago. We both are breaking in pieces. No matter how difficult it may be for me, I am posting as often as I can for my Mom to view. As I said, this is my Gift to her at this time of her Life. Bless you, Dan!! ❤

    1. Bless you, Donna. My plan is doing one post a day for my Mom. That is a lot for me to do so regular blogging I will not be doing. For now this is all about my Mom. I am not able to be at her side and I know how much she Loves my photography so I will do my utmost best to make her last days filled with beauty from me. Much Love to you! ❤ ❤ ❤

  6. Yes, it is a wondrous place Amy, there are not enough words to even grasp the incredible beauty that it is. My experience also left me with no fear and a total acceptance of our release from down here to that place ❤
    Thank you for sharing your 'encounter', and for sharing much beauty as you always do…again I'm in love with your roses, they are lovely 😀
    And nature does incredible things, but in its death comes much new beginnings, and the beauty and wonder begin again. We are part of that nature ❤

    1. Thank you, Mark. From here on in until my Mom’s last breath my posts are going to be for my Mom. This is all about her. My Gift. She is ready, just so so tired and those of us who really LOVE her are praying unceasingly that she slips into sleep and doesn’t wake up. It’s uncanny what you said because I had been saying to someone else a while back that I know new beginnings are here for me. Yet the new beginnings sometimes mean letting go of old. This, my friend, hurts beyond words. Yet a day will come when I know yes this is Good too. I know that already. That does’t make this Passage any easier though. Much Love to you, dear friend. ❤

      1. No Amy, it isn’t an easy journey, especially when it involves someone so very dear to us. And in your case, after building back up that love after a long journey to find that connection again.
        But that it the point, you did recreate that connection, both your mom and you have completed that journey. No greater love can you feel and understand when that place is reached. And the beauty is that you ‘know’ you will connect again, and this time in a place beyond words, as you know ❤
        Love and light to you both Amy, may your energies be cleared and that unconditional love hold you both ❤

      2. You just gave me goosebumps, Mark. Just today I told my bio sis that the circle is complete with my Mom, in more ways then one. We have come full circle and it goes back 2 generations. I may be writing about that … I’m solely focused on what my Heart directs me to post. Everything right now is absolutely significant in my Mother’s Transition so each and every post must be Perfect for her and what is truly needed to take with her. We do have Unconditional Love now. Now. OMG! Now. Something I deemed impossible has come true. I asked for my Mom’s forgiveness today because I am not able to fly to where she is on account of my Life, and her response? There is nothing to forgive, Amy. She totally understands why. In getting to know who I am, she has developed a deep respect for what I am doing and why. I’m getting family right now to get in on the act of these posts both for my Mom sake and theirs. Choice is theirs, dear friend. Thank YOU to you and to many others who are actually assisting me to get through this immensely painful time in my Life. I honestly did not think I could post at all. Much Love through tears. 💝

  10. No need to answer Amy… You know my thoughts are with you.. And yes, Nature is most cruel and kind.. Stormy and breathtakingly beautiful.. And like you, I know the joy that awaits once we cross that threshold.. I have held the hand of far too many who have left.. Yet each time felt it a privilege to have been chosen to be a their departing from this earth..
    My love is with you Amy..<3 Always xx Sue

    1. So do wish I could hold my Mom’s hand, Sue, but that is not what my Life will allow. We cannot always have what we want, now can we? The incredible thing in all this is my Mom absolutely, totally, without doubt understands why I am not able to fly down. I actually asked her to forgive me but she replied, “There is nothing to forgive, Amy.” Wow! We have gone from hate to Unconditional Love in under 2 years. And with her words, dear friend, she and I put to rest a family pattern that goes back at least (to my knowledge) 2 generations. No more Karma! I may write about this event. IF my Heart guides me I will. I want to but my Mom is a really private person so this conversation may not be appropriate for Petals. So far no go with my Heart. I told you only a part of the whole. Thank you for your support at this time in my Life. It’s so hard loosing a Mother. Today was a relatively good day for me but I worked at having it so. Tomorrow I post again. Much Love to you, Sue!! 🌹

      1. You are welcome Amy.. and I am so pleased, and totally understand the Karma.. So many now are finding closure as we are within this time frame of letting go once and for all.. And its beautiful, even though I know how sad it is for your parting.. I Have been having dream time with my mother.. As you know she did not speak to me for 10 yrs and then pasted .. For years in my dreams she still would not speak to me.. Even though I tried many times.. Yet this last couple of months dream time she has smiled.. A softening.. Not spoken yet.. But I feel we are healing.. or she is at least Seeing beyond her narrow world ❤ Much Love to you Amy, and I hold you and your Mom in my thoughts xxx

      2. There are so many of us who are completing circles all of which consist of Karma. It comes to no surprise to me that you too had a troubled relationship with your mom. I am so happy for you that you are getting progress in your dream state. Keep it up, Sue! When you achieve what I have you will not believe the amount of weight that comes off of your shoulders. Sending much LOVE to you this day…

Each part of a soul group.. Shocking for those of us left behind.. But their beginnings of a great adventure into their new world.. xxx ❤
