Destined for Greatness

Feeling we are capable of so much more
Have you ever felt that you were destined for “better” things? So many people admit to this. What does it mean? Some imagine that they are destined to make a difference to the world as writers, scientists, leaders – but few achieve these goals. So, what is the basis of this feeling and have they “failed”?
Perhaps the greatness these people have imagined – perhaps you have imagined – is something different than financial success or popularity. Perhaps the greatness imagined is an understanding that we all contain all we need – that all of the answers we seek are actually already inside of ourselves and have always been.
You are nobility

About Death Doulas
Death Doulas - also referred to as End of Life Doulas - provide emotional and other support to the dying and their
families. Support can be psychological (e.g. counselling), physical (aiding with exercise), clerical (helping with
completing documents, including advanced directives), documentary (recording messages, including final messages for
the dying), ceremonial (e.g. helping plan and/or deliver funerals) and other assistance which is not medical in
nature. Death doulas are not doctors, they are not nurses and they are not solicitors/lawyers. They are brought in
at the request of the dying and/or family and they are there to help the person transition from life.
About Nocturnal Works
The content on this site is provided to give resources and support to those dying, their loved ones and those
providing death doula (end of life) support. When we find out that death is near and the initial shock wears off,
emotions and questions flood into our minds. Noctural Works exists as place where you can find out about mental
health issues and therapy related to death, dying, grief and bereavement - as well as more practical support, such
as planning for death and supporting others on their journey.
The resources on this site are provided by Death Doula Ltd, a company in Aotearoa New Zealand which provides end of
life doula support online, in Wellington, Blenheim and Picton (New Zealand). These resources are not legal or
medical in nature, so do no rely upon them, but seek legal and medical advice, as required. If you are interested in
counselling resources not focusing on death and dying, you can visit our other site, Therapy Aroha.
