I admit that I shed a few tears at the announcement of David Bowie's death today. I believe he was a phenomenal talent. Did you know he edited a UFO magazine when he was young and got into some seriously scary situations due to a combination of his experimentation with drugs and the occult"?

Born David Robert Jones, I first met David Bowie during his original tour of the United States having adapted the stage persona of Ziggy Stardust, a sort of lost in space androgynous alien, complete with cosmic makeup and a painted lightning bolt zig zaging across his face down to his naked chest.
Before venturing across the pond, Bowie had caused quite a sensation in the British press not only because of his outlandish - to some - image of a rock and roller from Mars, but because of his independent and very liberal sexual lifestyle.

Thanks Beekeeper for this post xxx

i hope to explore it all when i can.

i was 'shocked' & upset when i heard the news this morning of David Bowie's 'passing' ... i had no idea he had cancer & was terminal. As i was continuing to sort our lounge this morning, the news came on and was talking about David. his life etc. I cried the whole 10 mins. it was on, i was just sooo sad xx

As a teenager in the 80's although i knew of him, it was my big sis who was the 'David Bowie fan', and that is my dearest memory of how i was connected to David Bowie. It was only after my spiritual awakening, mental-breakdown, premature kundalini awakening in 2006 that i began to be able to appreciate pop music with 'FULL GUSTO' again.

After which time David Bowie songs were more fully appreciated by myself, i have him listed in my 'Pop Songs for processing' thread.

I just adore the film 'Labyrinth' :heart:

The "man who fell to Earth" finally left it after a creative life in order to continue his soul journey.

Good journey, David, we will miss you.

He just had a birthday, too. I feel strangely bereft about his death. Not gutted like I felt when some people died, but... just... I don't know. I can't really imagine the world without David Bowie in it. It seems... not possible. Or something. :(

The link is quite interesting. Thanks for sharing this.

I wish him all the best wherever he is now.

I heard the news reporter on the Radio saying that David Bowie was going to be cremated, but without having a funeral service, i was like 'WoOoW ! with this synchronisity.

Some months ago, when anticipating having to deal with my ex. partner's death, i searched information about funerals. Worried we'd not be able to afford one, i looked into the cheapest funerals available & found out that a person could be cremated in the U.K. without the 'pain-in - the-backside' normal funeral considerations for approx. 1,000.

This cheered me up no end, because not only was it very cheap compared to the 'full' funeral expenses, but it also does away with the Christian babel, the 'dragging-of-others' to attend, the wastage of cut flowers & the pointlessness of such gatherings (all this is only my own point of view)

I have been to a very awe-inspiring up-lifting funeral & of course all funerals are connecting, impactful, shattering & heart-breaking.

So it has been decided- the ex, & i will each have 1,000 direct funerals,with cremation only without the Christian service & other extras :angelic:

seems like some things are universal , funerals here are inordinately expensive too , sometimes they cost far more than weddings.

I'm attending a funeral the day after tomorrow. My friend, Flav, took his own life. Fellow yoga students, we were close for a period of time and had a few interesting psychic adventures together but more or less went our separate ways in the past few years as Flavio chose increasing isolation . I think funerals are for the people who are left behind but I dread seeing his family's grief. The grieving of others always compounds my own.

cremation is the best thing, the Eastern people seem to know that, cell memory can keep some souls attached and earthbound, cremation really sets you more free, it is a wise course of action imv

I'm going to get my entire body frozen (cryonics (http://alcor.org/AboutCryonics/index.html)) , I'm going to save money for it , seeing how expensive it is.

it's what I really truly want , but the thought of not being buried next to my kin and parents , breaks my heart.

I'm going to bring it up to my mom when the time is right , ultimately it's going to be a tough call.

Hi Beekeeper, sorry to hear of your friends 'passing'

Thinking about it, the last two funerals i attended were very difficult / then weird.

My daughter & i had a panic attack, i had to keep breathing through the service, as i felt i would pass-out otherwise. Once out of the crem service, my daughter broke down with her panic attack & had to remain in the car with her father as she was unable to go into the home to have drinks & snacks. That was the first funeral she had attended she was approx. 21yrs old.

The last funeral we went to, also a cremation, i was in a processing space & i was unable to arrive on time. my daughter & i got there, in time to meet the family & others at the exit door of the cremation ceremony. So we 'missed' the funeral service all together.

We did however join the group for food & drink at their chosen venue.

What do you think caused the panic attack, Newfreedom?

What do you think caused the panic attack, Newfreedom?

Thankyou for the question Beekeeper, i had never considered why or what caused the panic attack.

For myself i think it was the fact that i felt i couldn't breathe... i was having to hold my mouth open to breathe through , i think i had the sensations of needing to vomit & pass loose stools both at the same time.

i did have a bout of this 'can't breathe' type of panic attacks as an 11yr /12yr old child, but back then told no-one.

Interesting my son also had a phase of this when he was 10yrs, which i helped him through.

My daughter has also had this type of panic attacks , she began them in earnest in spring 2006, while i was in mania , dis-association, she too began to expeirence her own Hells, - panic attacks, dis-association, self-harming techniques. She was 14 yrs old when this began. i was 38 yrs old

So, you think it's genetic?

So, you think it's genetic?

i was just going to say , 'i don't think so' since i never knew that my parents went through any thing like this BUT, i just had an 'aha' moment.

My nanna (my mum's mum) did have panic attacks, she would call them 'her funny turns' & she blamed them on a mild heart condition she had been diagnosed with. if i recall she would go faint & dizzy & suddenly be very ill.

My nanna had a fear of water & this fear could cause one of her 'funny turns' to happen. At other times, i don't think she / us were aware of the triggers, except to say that her heart was malfunctioning & causing her the distress.

Was she very spiritual, your grandmother?

Hi Beekeeper, sorry it's taken a while to get back to you, 'MAD' ere...

i wouldn't of described her as spiritual as such, she was a little religious, she was very superstitious, she had great enthusiasm for life & living & loved materialistic stuff.

She was a very physically active person, in that she was always busy tending her home & garden, she was also probably very mentally active too, as she was a 'worrier'

She would always be dressed & made up well, having her hair washed & set every week & always wearing her make-up when ever she left the house.
She was quite 'posh' in her attitude & values, but also a very decent & respectful person towards others.

She doted on us her grandchildren & then later on her great-grand-children.

She lived a very 'healthy' / free from illness life & was still able to clean her roof gutters & bake for xmas up until she suddenly died aged 81 yrs.

When we moved into my grandparents home, my daughter found out that the children of the area called the woman who had previously lived in our house a 'Witch' :lol2: & my daughter who was 11yrs at the time would tell them , she was my 'nan' :heart: xxx

That's okay, I've been away for a few days.

I asked because I wondered if her panic attacks were a misinterpretation of something going on in her energy body.

I don't think I'd mind the local children calling me the witch lady when I'm elderly, as long as they weren't actually scared of me.:-)

That's probably quite possible, i know that the early heart chakra activations that i experienced always had me frozen in terror & panic.

Newfreedom, I posted that recent link to the Skeptiko article- on the possibility that particular afflictions can be the emotional discharge of a deceased relative - with your family anxiety attacks in mind. http://www.astraldynamics.com.au/showthread.php?18623-Should-family-therapy-include-your-great-great-grandmother

There was a period when I was doing a very intense yoga asana, pranayama and meditation practice when I also had sensations that could easily be misinterpreted as panic attacks: a persistent feeling like a lump in the throat and frequent heart (chakra) palpitations, which intensified in crowds. If I hadn't had other manifestations (precognition, clairaudience, feeling strangers' emotions upon coming into close proximity, experiencing my own emotions far more intensely and often feeling quite "loose" in my body) I would have assumed it was anxiety. Medical tests showed I was well and since my yoga teacher didn't know how to address what was happening, I reduced my pranayama practice and things settled. It was through further yoga study that I learned about the granthis /psychic knots: http://jivamuktiyoga.com/teachings/focus-of-the-month/p/untying-knots-bind-us

Later, a younger colleague went to hospital because he was having a similar experience. He was an extremely prayerful, wholesome fellow with his mind constantly on God, a very conventional Catholic, but when I explained what had possibly happened to him, he was surprisingly receptive.

Thanks Beekeeper, yes i had seen the link & i am intending to read it & understand it.

Thankyou for the untying knots link here too, i intend to read & understand that one too, thankyou too for sharing your own experiences on this topic , much appreciated :grouphug: xxx

P.S. i never forgot the bead angel i wanted to make for you, i did indeed buy some special beady bits etc, especially for you. If / when i finish this 'MAD' busy 'putting things right in home & garden' phase, i would very much like to get that bead angel made & sent to you xxx:heart:

I liked his music and felt sad thinking its the loss of the 70s glam era, but I didn't feel any connection to him as a person really, or imagine he'd be someone I'd like to meet.
