Dealing With The Death of A Loved One. Healthy Grief.

Coping with the death of a loved one
Dealing with the loss of a loved one is so so hard, I know, I've been there. It's difficult to put into words how it feels; it might seem like your world has fallen down around you. You might feel lost, confused, numb, angry, stunned or a range of other emotions. Most of all, it hurts.

Grief must run its course. Grieving is a healthy process, it is the road to go down to get used to your new reality. To allow time to soften the blow and for you to reinvent your world. To accept their parting and forgive the circumstances surrounding their loss. To learn to be happy again in their absence, and remember them with love instead of sadness.

Emotions must be freely yet safely expressed. We must not 'deal with grief' for grief is the healthy process of dealing with loss. Repressed grief can remain within the subconscious mind as trauma, resulting in depression and anxiety in daily life.

Many people keep their grief very quiet, they push it down into the subconscious because society usually tells us that we must be strong. It is, however, more than acceptable to be weak sometimes. We can't be strong all of the time especially when we receive a blow like the death of a loved one or friend.

We must not be ashamed of our grief. We must face it and work through it because it is very natural. It is the healing process in disguise, not an unhealthy aftermath. This terrible event must be 'integrated' into the subconscious healthily and with balance, with conscious reasoning and safe emotional release.

If you have lost someone close to you then not only do you miss them and face the prospect of not seeing until the end of your incarnation, but your life has likely now changed. What will life be like now? What will I do? How will I feel? Your daily life experiences may alter now that this person is no longer there and this can make make you feel vulnerable. They were part of your identity, they formed a group dynamic with you, you identified with them. This means a slight or even complete reinvention of the self. It's useful to recognise these things and more, so that you can process your grief properly; so please watch the video below for much more.
