A little death makes life more meaningful

Published October 25, 2016 by Lunapo

Weeks ago, Witchlette asked me where babies come from. I smiled and told her, remember when Witchling was growing in my belly?

Slightly exasperated, she said, Before that, Mama.

Ok, well…I remembered back to what I discussed with my grandfather before he passed. He asked me what I believed happened after death. I shared with him what I call The Ether.

The Ether is a delightful place. It is a place of warmth, comfort, and love. It is a place where your spirit rests and recharges after death.

This is what I explained to Witchlette. The Ether is where your spirit is before you are born. When the baby is ready to grow in the mama’s belly, the daddy gives a seed to put into the mama’s egg. The spirit leaves The Ether and enters the baby. Then, the baby is born.

About a week ago, Witchlette experienced her first death. My mom had to say goodbye to her pup, who she has had since I went away to college and who the little Witches played with each week. I sat her down and reviewed our discussion of The Ether. I explained that that is a place where spirits are before they are born and it’s where they go back to after they have died. We talked about physical bodies breaking down due to illness and the physical body passing away while the spiritual body goes to The Ether. She took it all very well with an understanding far beyond her years.

Rest well Pup.
