New Harvard Theory: Extraterrestrials Could Have Star Powered Spaceships

Published

on

This might not be common knowledge, but fast radio bursts (FRB) were first discovered more than 10 years ago. Their place of origin, however, has been a complete mystery since their discovery. A new paper by Harvard researchers, published in the journal Astrophysical Journal Letters, outlines how the possibility that these may actually be artificial hasn’t really been investigated, despite the fact that it is one of the most plausible hypotheses. In the paper, they examine the possibility that these FBRs are artificial beams that have been set up as beacons for the purpose of driving light sails, which would be used to propel spaceships:

The idea that extraterrestrial civilizations may be using radio beams (manifested as dispersed pulses) is certainly not a new one, as it dates back to the pioneering paper by Cocconi & Morrison (1959). This idea was extended by researchers engaged in the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence (SETI), accounts of which can be found in Drake & Sobel (1992) and Tarter (2001); also Siemion et al. (2012). In addition to traditional, radio-based SETI, many other approaches have been advanced for detecting alien civilizations (e.g., Dyson 1960; Schwartz & Townes 1961; Howard et al. 2004; Benford et al. 2010; Wright et al. 2014; Lingam & Loeb 2017).

The study goes on to demonstrate how FRB parameters were consistent with their hypothesis, and showed how the emitter of the FBR was twice the diameter of our planet. In the conclusion, the authors also state:

We illustrated that the frequency needed to power the light sail was consistent with those observed for FRBs, lending further credence to our hypothesis. Our analysis gave rise to many interesting consequences. It was shown that the payload of the light sail and the beamʼs characteristic period should be approximately 106 tons and 7 days, respectively. Moreover, under certain simplifying assumptions, we derived an upper bound on the total number of intelligent civilizations in a galaxy (akin to the Milky Way). We also suggested that smaller light sails may be widely prevalent, which are presently undetectable as their spectral flux densities are too low. Using the all-sky cosmological rate of FRBs, we argued that an FRB might originate within the Milky Way once every several centuries.

Although the possibility that FRBs are produced by extragalactic civilizations is more speculative than an astrophysical origin, quantifying the requirements necessary for an artificial origin serves, at the very least, the important purpose of enabling astronomers to rule it out with future data.

Strange radio wave flashes from far outside of our Milky Way galaxy (or in it) have scientists completely confused. Since 2001, telescopes have been picking up these fast radio bursts (FRBs). Only a total of ten have ever been detected. The bursts last just a few milliseconds and then explode with just as much energy as our Sun releases in a month, which is massive.

One of the most recent bursts occurred in 2014, and it was the first one in history to be caught in action, thanks to the Parkes Telescope in New South Wales, Australia. The others were found by examining data after the bursts had already arrived on Earth.

“The weird part is that they all fit a pattern that doesn’t match what we know about cosmic physics.”

Michael Hippke from the Institute for Data Analysis In Neukrichen-Vluyn, Germany, and John Learned from the University of Hawaii in Manoa, have not ruled out the possibility that these bursts come from somewhere within our galaxy. They determined this by calculating how far the bursts have travelled, a technique known as “the dispersion measure.” (source)

The Harvard paper hypothesizes, based on their evidence, that they do originate from within the Milky Way Galaxy.

It’s also interesting to note that all 10 of the detected bursts have dispersion measures that are multiples of 187.5. This is both fascinating and unexplainable, and they are suggesting that this line-up of the dispersion implies five sources for the bursts that are all at regularly spaced distances from Earth.

According to their research, there is a 5 in 10,000 probability that this type of line-up is a coincidence, and that it is “very, very hard to explain.”

What could the sources of these signals heading towards Earth be? Are they unidentified cosmic objects? Is it human technology? Or is the question not what are they, but from whom? If the natural explanations don’t seem to fit, the researchers have concluded in their paper that “an artificial source (human or non-human) must be considered.”

Jill Tarter, the former director of the SETI Institute in California, says “These have been intriguing as an engineered signal, or evidence of extraterrestrial technology, since the first was discovered.”

Just this year, scientists discovered six more bursts of radio signals, this time coming from a place in deep space outside of our galaxy. A total of 17 such radio signals have been received from this location in space, and given their nature, many people believe they are extraterrestrial in origin. These signals were detected at the Green Bank Telescope in the U.S. and the Arecibo Observatory in Puerto Rico.

The sheer power of these signals, as well as their having been detected coming from deep space, is leading to speculation that there may be an advanced extraterrestrial civilization behind them.

We Already Know That We Are Not Alone

A big theme here at CE is creating awareness about the fact that there is near undeniable evidence showing that “we are being visited and have been visited for many years by people from outer space, from other civilizations.” (source)

That’s just one high ranking military officer, but there are hundreds, if not thousands, who have now officially come forward testifying either to the reality of UFOs, or that some of these UFOs are indeed extraterrestrial in origin.

The fact that we are not alone is a strong general scientific consensus, but whether or not we are being visited remains a hot topic of debate.

“Yes there have been crashed craft, and bodies recovered. . . . We are not alone in the universe, they have been coming here for a long time. . . . I happen to be privileged enough to be in on the fact that we have been visited on this planet, and the UFO phenomenon is real.”

– Doctor Edgar Mitchell, 6th man to walk on the moon (source) (source)(source)

What’s more, UFOs have been verified by dozens of governments, but the extraterrestrial question has not been.

Not only that, video footage is popping up everywhere that is raising even more questions. You can see a couple of examples in an article we recently published here.

The question of extraterrestrial contact opens up a pandora’s box of questions and concerns, and it’s no coincidence, I believe, that all of this is happening at a critical time on our planet. This is part of the major consciousness shift that’s happening on the planet right now, as we step into the world that’s been hidden from us for years. Extraterrestrial disclosure has the potential to completely change the way we think about multiple aspects of human life, as it is and would be the biggest story in human history to date. That being said, in the black budget world, we’ve heard that it’s just the tip of the iceberg.

Below is a video we’ve shared countless times, but it’s a powerful one because what he says is true. There really is “abundant evidence.”

We’ve presented this evidence in hundreds of articles that deal with this topic. To see some of those, you can visit the exopolitics section of our website here.

I’d also like to mention that, whenever we discuss this topic, and move on from asking whether they are here to why they are here, we will always end up with labels of gods, demons, angels, and more. Human beings love to categorize and judge things they do not understand, but if we take a step back and look at the evidence objectively, we’ll see that the most common theme in contact stories is care for our planet, as well as a spiritual understanding of ourselves and the nature of the universe. This becomes even more acceptable to those of us who research quantum physics and neuroscience, as many aspects of these subjects are catching up to ancient Eastern spiritual philosophies.

It’s quite interesting, to say the least.

This is why, for me personally, I take great interest in the spiritual nature of things, and, when it comes to extraterrestrial contact, there is no better place to realize the spiritual connection from a mainstream perspective than by studying the beliefs of indigenous cultures.

Lockheed Exec Says This Is Already Happening Via Quantum Entanglement

It’s called quantum entanglement, it’s extremely fascinating and  counter to what we believe to be the known scientific laws of the universe, so much so that Einstein himself could not wrap his head around it. Although it’s called “quantum entanglement,” though Einstein referred to it as “spooky action at a distance.”

Recent research has taken quantum entanglement out of the theoretical realm of physics, and placed into the one of verified phenomena. An experiment devised by the Griffith University’s Centre for Quantum Dynamics, led by Professor Howard Wiseman and his team of researchers at the university of Tokyo, recently published a paper in the journal Nature Communications confirming what Einstein did not believe to be real: the non-local collapse of a particle’s wave function. (source)(source), and this is just one example of many.

They did this by splitting a single photon between two laboratories, and testing whether measurement of it in one laboratory would actually cause a change in the local quantum state in the other laboratory.  In doing so, researchers were able to verify the entanglement of the split single photon.

Researchers have since replicated this experiment over and over again, with results of entanglement seen at kilometres of distance. Below is a great visual depiction of what quantum entanglement from the film, “What The Bleep Do We Know.”

“Space is just the construct that gives the illusion that there are separate objects” – Dr. Quantum

Sure, there are a lot of philosophies regarding what all of this stuff actually means, but, as Dr. Elizabeth Rauscher puts it, it’s a pre-curser to realizing that everything is connected, and that everything in the universe is one. What happens in what we call reality, is effecting something else in that same reality, it’s all “touching.”  (source)

What’s happening here is that, either we are witnessing the transfer of ‘information’ at a speed far greater than the speed of light, or even better, something completely instantaneous.

If all points in space are connected, that means vast distances between places are simply an illusion. Furthermore, quantum entanglement challenges Einsteins theory of relativity, but theories are developed to be tweaked and changed. Unfortunately, our world is plagued with secrecy, and you can learn more about that in an article about the black budget linked at the bottom of this article.

The Lockheed Executives Comments On Space Travel

Rich was the second director of Lockheed Skunkwork’s from 1975-1991. He’s been called the Father of Stealth, having overseen the development of the stealth fighter, the F-117A nighthawk. Before his death, Rich made several shocking open statements about the reality of UFOs and extraterrestrials.

“We already have the means to travel among the stars, but these technologies are locked up in black projects, and it would take an act of God to ever get them out to benefit humanity. Anything you can imagine, we already know how to do it.” (1)

“We now have technology to take ET home. No it won’t take someone’s lifetime to do it. There is an error in the equations. We know what it is. We now have the capability to travel to the stars.” (1)

“There are two types of UFOs — the ones we build and the ones ‘they’ build.” (1)

Where Quantum Entaglement Comes In

When Rich was asked how UFO propulsion worked, he said, “Let me ask you. How does ESP work?” The questioner responded with, “All points in time and space are connected?” Rich then said, “That’s how it works!”  

Interesting to think about, isn’t it? Perhaps the vast distances that exist between planets, solar systems and more isn’t really as much of a barrier as we thought it was.

What Are The Sources For These Quotes?

One of the sources is aerospace journalist, James Goodall, who wrote for publications such as Jane’s Defense Weekly, Aviation Week and Space Technology, and Interavia.  He is an accomplished speaker specializing in the history, development, and operations of the world’s only Mach 3 capable, manned air breathing aircraft, the SR-71 family of aircraft. (1) (source)(source)(source)

He is also an author, as well as the Associate Curator at the Pacific Aviation Meseum, HI. He was also the restoration manager at the Museum of Flight in Paine Field, Everett, WA.

Goodall interviewed many from the classified black budget world (read more about that world here.) He claimed that some of his contacts told him that “we have things out there that are literally out of this world, better than Star Trek or what you see in the movies.” (1)

From his work alone, James Goodall knew Ben Rich well. In a video interview, Goodall stated that he spoke to Rich approximately 10 days before he died:

“About ten days before he died, I was speaking to Ben on the telephone at the USC Medical Center in LA. And he said, ‘Jim, we have things out in the desert that are fifty years beyond what you can comprehend. They have about forty five hundred people at the Lockheed Skunk works. What have they been doing for the last eighteen or twenty years? They’re building something.’” (1)

Another source comes from John Andrews, who was a legendary Lockheed engineer. He had written to Rich, stating his own belief in UFOs, both manmade and extraterrestrial. Andrews has asked Rich if his own beliefs covered extraterrestrial as well as manmade UFOs. Rich’s reply was as follows:

“Yes, I’m a believer in both categories. I feel everything is possible. Many of our man-made UFOs are Un-Funded Opportunities. There are two types of UFOs, the ones we build, and the ones they build.” (1)

In Rich’s reply, he underlined the U, F, and O in “unfunded opportunities.”

Thirdly, Jan Harzan, a senior executive with IBM, along with Tom Keller, an aerospace engineer who has worked as a computer systems analyst for NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, discusses a talk Ben gave some time ago. On March 23rd, 1993 at a UCLA School of Engineering talk where he was presenting a general history of Sunk Works, he said this:

“We now know how to travel to the stars. There is an error in the equations, and we have figured it out, and now know how to travel to the stars and it won’t take a lifetime to do it. It is time to end all the secrecy on this, as it no longer poses a national security threat, and make the technology available for use in the private sector. There are many in the intelligence community who would like to see this stay in the black and not see the light of day. We now have the technology to take ET home.” (1)

Here is a video of Jan telling the story:

Federal Court Rules In Favour of Big Pharma & Determines That CBD Has No Medicinal Value

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Despite a tremendous amount of research proving that CBD has medicinal value, the DEA still insists it is categorized as a Schedule 1 Substance in the Controlled Substances Act. The Supreme court recently decided that it has no medicinal value.

  • Reflect On:

    Many have absolutely sworn by CBD for assisting with issues of chronic pain and for stopping seizures, when other illicit drugs such as cocaine and meth are in a less harmful category, it would seem that there are some other interests at hand here.

Last week the hemp industry in the United States faced a roadblock after the federal U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals upheld a decision by the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) to list cannabidiol or CBD as a Schedule 1 controlled substance under the Controlled Substances Act. It’s worth pointing out that CBD has no psychoactive effects and is not the same as THC, the active ingredient that gets you high when smoking marijuana. The definition of a Schedule 1 controlled substance is as follows,

Schedule 1 (I) drugs, substances, or chemicals are defined by the federal government as drugs with no currently accepted medical use and a high potential for abuse. Schedule 1 (I) drugs are the most dangerous drugs of all the drug schedules with potentially severe psychological or physical dependence.

Let that sink in for a moment. Keep in mind that methamphetamine aka crystal meth, cocaine, fentanyl, and oxycodone all fall under the Schedule 2 category in the Controlled Substances Act. I don’t know about you, but to me, something feels off about this.

Back in 2016, the hemp industry brought a lawsuit against the government when the DEA issued a “clarifying rule” that claimed CBD was in fact, an illicit drug, simply because it was a byproduct of cannabis flowers. A report released by the Denver Post explained,

Represented by Denver-based cannabis law firm Hoban Law Group, the Hemp Industries Association and other hemp businesses challenged the DEA’s rule and alleged the agency overstepped its bounds by essentially scheduling substances — notably cannabinoids — that were not classified as illicit in the Controlled Substances Act. Additionally, they argued, the hemp-derived extracts rich in CBD, or cannabinol, are protected under state laws and Farm Bill provisions.

The rule could be misinterpreted by other federal and local agencies, leading to unlawful product seizures and chill a booming multibillion-dollar hemp products industry, Hoban attorneys had said.

The DEA responded by claiming that they had simply provided clarification to the existing law, and stated that their decision, “makes no substantive change to the government’s control of any substance.”

Again, the DEA is failing to acknowledge the major difference between industrial hemp, which by the way, provided the paper for the original declaration of independence to be written on, and it contains virtually no psychoactive properties. THC, on the other hand, does produce strong psychoactive effects, so the DEA maintains their stance by saying that because CBD comes from the flowering parts of the cannabis plant and cannabinoids “are found in the parts of the cannabis plant that fall within the … definition of marijuana, such as the flowering tops, resin, and leaves.”

The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals agreed to the DEA’s decision to clarify that CBD is therefor a “marijuana extract.” Thankfully, producers of CBD vowed to appeal the decision.

We will be appealing, and we will be funding that appeal,” said Michael Brubeck, CEO of Centuria Natural Foods and a plaintiff in the case. Centuria was joined in its challenge by the Hemp Industries Association.

During the decision-making process, the panel consisting of three judges said the plaintiffs had failed to comment during the DEA’s rulemaking process, which is what inevitably nullified the majority of their challenge to the upstanding classification.

Attorney Bob Hoban, in a statement on Wednesday, said his clients are weighing whether to request a rehearing due to concerns about the safety and security of those who make and sell hemp extracts, including CBD.

“Though we appreciate the court’s finding in favor of the legitimacy of the Farm Bill’s hemp amendment, we are still disappointed with the court’s findings that the final rule does not interfere with lawful, hemp-related business activities, as even 29 members of Congress confirmed in their Amicus Brief to the Court,” Hoban wrote. “Given the pervasive confusion and irreconcilable conflicts of the law that have led to product seizures, arrests and criminal charges against those involved in the lawful hemp industry, the petitioners believe that the final rule must be invalidated, absent the court clarifying and further resolving these conflicts and their severe consequences.”

CBD Does Have Medicinal Value

The reason this is so frustrating is that CBD certainly does have medicinal value and has been a godsend for millions of people who suffer from chronic pain. In fact, an advisory committee for the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recently approved pharmaceutical grade cannabidiol (CBD) medicine as a treatment method for severe epilepsy. How can a Schedule 1 Substance, which is supposed to have no medicinal value, be FDA approved, as a treatment?

People with cancer have also utilized cannabis, as multiple studies in the lab showed it completely destroys cancer cells.

Thankfully, the truth continues to come out and before long CBD, and hopefully, cannabis altogether will be completely removed from the Schedule 1 Controlled substances act. How could something be fully legal for recreational use in some states, and soon will be all of Canada, yet regarded as such a “bad drug” in most of the United States? C’mon America, get with the times! Legalize.

Robotic Dove-Shaped Drones Are Now Spying On People From Above

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    30 military and government agencies have deployed the birdlike drones and related devices in at least five provinces in China recent years. They are in operation and are spying on people from above. There are also plans to weaponize them.

  • Reflect On:

    Reflect on the mass-surveillance state. Why do we have no privacy? Is it really for "national security" reasons? Or are there other motives here? What's really going on with the need for FULL control?

Fascism has been approaching the developed world for a long time. It comes in the form of governments that can read every single email, GPS you at any time, track your every move, every step, know your internet habits better then you do. If they decide, they can put a bunch of information together and use it against you, especially if you become “an enemy of the state,” one who threatens the interests of the global elite.

This is what it’s like to live in North America, and more people became aware of it with the Edward Snowden leaks. There were many who blew the whistle before him as well, some who did not live long after the fact.

What is happening here is extremely wrong. National security measures continue to heighten as a direct result of ‘terrorism’ in many forms, from attacks and bombings to mass shootings. All of these continue to increase like never before, especially in the United States. When it comes to terrorism in general, events like 9/11 have served as a mass wake up call for the citizenry, making them aware of ‘false flag’ terrorism, where a group of powerful people orchestrate an event for their ulterior motives and blame it on another.

Wake-Up Call

This is exactly what many people believe is happening with these events, including school shootings, that there is some form of mind-control going on here, an effort to make these type of events more common to justify heightening up national security measures, like global surveillance, for example. Many politicians, academicians, researchers, whistleblowers, and high ranking military personnel have been raising awareness about this for years, and we also have hard evidence in so many different forms, with so many different examples.

The last one I wrote about was with regards to fake intelligence, as well as plagiarized quotations that were found in an official intelligence report pertaining to Iraq’s WMDs presented to the UN Security Council by Secretary of State Colin Powell, on February 5th, 2003. You can read more about that here. Mark Twain summed up how this works quite nicely (source):

“The statesmen will invent cheap lies, putting the blame upon the nation that is attacked, and every man will be glad of those conscience-soothing falsities, and will diligently study them, and refuse to examine any refutations of them; and thus he will by and by convince himself the war is just, and will thank God for the better sleep he enjoys after this process of grotesque self-deception.”

Our world might not actually be as bad as how it’s constantly being presented to us. Most people are good, and the majority of people, in America at least, have opposed the action of their government for years when it comes to global conflict. False flag terrorism, deception, and the creation of events to heighten the national security state is nothing new.

Dove-Shaped Drones Over China

Some of the latest news when it comes to surveillance is coming out of China, where robotic dove-shaped drones are spying on people from above. As the South China Morning Post reports,

The idea might seem far fetched, but robotic birds are very much a reality, and China has been using them to surveil people across the country.

Sources told the South China Morning Post that more than 30 military and government agencies have deployed the birdlike drones and related devices in at least five provinces in recent years.

One part of the country that has seen the new technology used extensively is the Xinjiang Uygur autonomous region in China’s far west. The vast area, which borders Mongolia, Russia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Afghanistan, Pakistan and India, is home to a large Muslim population and has long been viewed by Beijing as a hotbed for separatism. As a result, the region and its people have been subjected to heavy surveillance from the central government.

The new “spy birds” programme, code-named “Dove”, is being led by Song Bifeng, a professor at Northwestern Polytechnical University in Xian, capital of northwestern China’s Shaanxi province.

Each robotic bird has a GPS system, a high-definition camera and a flight control system linked with satellites which allow for its remote control. They are also equipped with an electric motor to power its flight. “Once equipped with weapons, unmanned small combat vessels can attack the enemy in large numbers, similar to drones,” Li Jie, a Chinese naval expert.

That doesn’t sound too good.

The True Goal Of Surveillance

So, if it’s not for national security purposes, and it’s not to protect us from danger, what is mass surveillance all about? For the answer to this question, I turn your attention to William Binney, a former high ranking intelligence official with the National Security Agency (NSA). He is one of the highest placed intelligence officials to ever blow the whistle on insider NSA ‘knowing.’ He made headlines when he resigned in 2001 after 9/11, having worked more than thirty years for the agency. He was a leading code-breaker against the Soviet Union during the Cold war and was repulsed by the United States massive surveillance programs. He claims the ultimate goal of the NSA is “total population control.” You can access that interview and read more about it here.

While on the topic of China, it’s also important to read this from an article by The Intercept:

Google bosses were scrambling to contain leaks and internal anger Wednesday after the company’s confidential plan to launch a censored version of its search engine in China was revealed by The Intercept.

Just a few hundred of Google’s massive 88,000-strong workforce had been briefed on the project prior to the revelations, which triggered a wave of disquiet that spread through the internet giant’s offices across the world.

Company managers responded by swiftly trying to shut down employees’ access to any documents that contained information about the China censorship project, according to Google insiders who witnessed the backlash.

“Everyone’s access to documents got turned off, and is being turned on [on a] document-by-document basis,” said one source. “There’s been total radio silence from leadership, which is making a lot of people upset and scared. … Our internal meme site and Google Plus are full of talk, and people are a.n.g.r.y.”

Awakening In Progress

The good news is that more and more people across the globe are starting to wake up to all of the misinformation being spread on a daily basis, and that includes the agenda of those behind it. Even a decade ago, the mass populace was not as aware that all is not as it seems. As a result of this recent mass awakening, our perception, our thoughts, and our collective consciousness are beginning to shift. We no longer see the world the way it has been presented to us, and we are starting to realize that simply waking up to all of the propaganda that surrounds us is creating big problems for the global elite. The very first step to changing a problem is to first recognize that problem, and we are still in that process.

These ‘End-Of-Life Doulas’ Are Guiding People Peacefully To Their Death

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    We all die. Mainstream medicine doesn't offer much in the way of end-of-life care. Death Doulas help family and friends with what they can do to help their loved ones come to terms with their impending death and how to handle it themselves.

  • Reflect On:

    We live in a culture where more often than not simply talking about death is taboo. Death Doulas can help remove these barriers and open up lines of communication with the dying and their families so they can pass on with much less fear and pain.

When we typically hear the term doula, we either think ‘what the heck is that?’, or we may already know that a doula is a trained professional who assists in a more natural process of childbirth, usually in the home.

So essentially, a ‘death doula’ is virtually the opposite: someone who assists a person who has a terminal illness, as well as helping that person’s friends, family members and even animals come to terms with the fast approaching morality that we will all face one day.

In the world of mainstream medicine, doctors themselves don’t offer much to people who are on their deathbed, especially on an emotional level. Family members and friends are often left in the dark as to how they are supposed to cope with the knowledge that their loved one will pass. They are rarely given methods through which they can talk candidly about their loved one’s inevitable death, and therefore this topic is often not discussed, which can make it much more difficult to process for the person who is dying and for everyone who is close to them.

Thanadoula

An end-of-life doula is sometimes referred to as a thanadoula from the greek thana meaning death and doula meaning servant. Generally speaking, it is said that the role of the death doula is to walk alongside the dying person and their family. This encompasses a very wide range of services that include: providing spiritual, psychological and social support, assisting with the creation of positive and empowering end-of-life plans, ideas to optimize physical comfort, and educating families on the new and progressive options for home wakes and natural burials. Often, these doulas go above and beyond expectations as they bring light to a phase of life that can be very dark for many.

What Does A Death Doula Actually Do?

A great definition is given on DoulaGivers.com,

Legacy: We are all born and we all die; it’s what we do in the middle that creates our legacy. What we leave behind is far more than simply wealth and possessions. We can share our story or give wisdom, advice, love, and support even after we have passed. And in doing so, give the future a glimpse of your essence – who you were, how you saw the world, and what gave your life. Death Doulas can help patients with the powerful, uplifting process of developing a legacy plan.

Presence: The last phase of our life can stir fear and anxiety as we each face our end-of-life. This is simply because we have not walked this path before. Having someone present with the experience and training in such a time can bring a sense of comfort and familiarity to the otherwise unfamiliar. Death Doulas provide holistic support as they accompany individuals and their families before, during, and after death.

Dignity: Everyone wants to have a positive passing where they maintain dignity and honor as they exit life. We all have our own values, traditions, and belief systems that will influence our vision and expectation of what that would look like. Creating an environment that represents that vision is important. This along with developing a legacy and presence work, is what an End-of-Life Doula brings to you and your family.

Here’s An Example

In a story from GlobalNews Canada, Michael Crane explains his experience upon meeting death doula Barb Philips. After asking her what she did for a living, he said, “I was very intrigued and very interested when she started talking about being a death coach and actually walking alongside the family who is experiencing a death or a pending loss.”

A few months later, he was feeling overwhelmed about his mother’s impending death and decided to reach out to Philips for assistance. “I’ll never forget the first discussion with her. I basically was crying the entire time,” he said. “It was the first time I had talked about my mother’s death with someone outside our family in that level of depth and detail.”

Philips helped the family engage in a more candid conversation about death that Crane believes would not otherwise have happened. She talked to his mother openly about exactly what was happening and how she was feeling, mentally, physically and spiritually. After his mother passed away, the doula helped the family to plan the funeral and fulfill all of their mother’s wishes.

Do We Live In A Death-Denying Culture?

Philips believes that, for the most part, talking about dying and to people who are dying about their experience is still taboo. Because of this, families are often left in a state of shock and haven’t allowed themselves the time or space to properly grieve.

“People’s grief is more engaged at the very beginning,” she said of her practice. “It’s seen as something viable and valuable rather than trying to shut it off.”

Make Way For The Emergence Of Death Doulas

The understanding and need for this type of end of life care is growing at a rapid rate. Many people feel called to enter into a role like this after feeling like they weren’t given the tools they needed to properly lay their loved one to rest. Others had the experience of a death doula and saw just how beneficial this practice is.

With a growing number of elderly and ill people, this knowledge is starting to proliferate at a very important time. With many certifications becoming available, it is now easier to train and gain the tools that are necessary for this type of care.

Death is simply a part of life, and the more we begin to understand and ultimately embrace this process, the easier it becomes for everyone involved. How lovely that this practice is gaining such popularity; it just goes to show how much things are really changing in comparison to the old and often outdated practices of mainstream medicine. Hallelujah!
