    Reported by:

    Helping my mother face her approaching death during hospice triggered fears of my own mortality, yet it also helped me face that fear in a way I would not have otherwise. In comforting her I found what I myself believed; that death is simply a doorway into another form of existence. At the time I also developed a horrid fear of spiders, interesting to me because they (the webs) symbolize our ability to consciously create our lives, contrary to the powerlessness most of us feel when facing death.
