Your Healing Begins With Your Story
1 to 1 Grief & Loss Mentoring
Grieving provides a powerful opportunity for spiritual growth. We shouldn’t seek it out for this reason—all of us will have enough opportunities for mourning, without seeking it. But supporting a grieving person’s spiritual growth is another valid goal of energy work for the bereaved. Personally, I believe that deep grief prepares us for greater service to others. Having experienced profound loss, we can be more compassionate to others. We feel our connection to the rest of humanity. We open to the non-material world. We shed our masks and reassess our lives and what is truly important to us. We are prepared for growth. Since grieving is something none of us can avoid, it is good to know that there can be spiritual gifts in it. Grief is meant to move through us, not get stuck in our energy field or our physical body.
My Grief Journal
Journalling is possibly one of the most simple but profound tools out there for enhancing your well-being on every level (mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual). In fact, journalling is such a useful practice that I recommend in the articles I publish throughout my site and to those I mentor privately. When it comes to self-growth and spiritual maturation, journalling is probably one of the top 5 practices I recommend to everyone, no matter how good a person is at writing or not. My Grief Journal contains gentle prompts to help you identify, accept and work through your feelings at a time when clarity seems impossible. When it comes to journalling, there’s nothing to master but your own ability to be self aware. With the Grief Journal comes access to a private Facebook Group where you can find a safe space to “just be”.
This is why I do what I do.
Because I have been there. I have struggled, been on my knees, cried all night until the tears couldn’t flow anymore. I have also been there for many more in the trenches and seen them struggle.
You might think that coping with your own grief is nigh on impossible. I know that words from others don’t give you any comfort, and I know first hand that there is no quick fix for a broken heart. In addition to your intensely overwhelming sadness, you feel vulnerable often, you are disorientated, and emotionally battered. You feel like you have little energy to invest in coping with the immense pain of loss, and you wonder how you would even go about finding the strength and energy for that in the first place.
This is where I come in. I have been in your shoes. I have experienced it all. Then some.
Firstly, there is no right or wrong way to cope with grief, just as long as you are NOT causing yourself harm. Grief is a natural process that all of us experience in our own way, in our own time, and at our own pace. Time does not heal grief. It is what you do with your time that matters.
How do I cope with my grief? I cope by using the daily practice of Mindfulness. You know, it really doesn’t matter if you have never even heard of what Mindfulness is. I will show you. Do you know when most people find out about what Mindfulness is? They tend to find out when they are experiencing a tough time in their lives, that’s when. Practicing Mindfulness during your grief is not about whitewashing your pain, or getting over your loss. It is about learning how to stay present, cultivating compassion, and making conscious wise choices that will help you cope with this new normal known as life after loss.
