Grief - What is Grief? An ending but also a new beginning...

Grief and change often go hand in hand as it alters reality - what once was is not what is now, in the present moment. Change is inevitable and so is grief - however the perception that we put on grief comes with more negative connotation. When we are not ready for change, we often grieve what may have once been or the potential of what could have been. Guilt and anger play a big part on embracing the grieving process and accepting change. Often this is due to a fear that is rooted in relation to our self-limiting beliefs. Our ego is often attached, and therefore finding ways to radically accept our feelings is a start to our growth journey. Growth is not linear and remembering this is important as we journey on.

If we allow the grief to remain in our bodies for too long, it can manifest physical health challenges such as chronic pain, inflammation, breathing and digestive issues. Some strategies to begin processing grief include;

  • mindfulness movement
  • deep breathing and scanning the body for bodily sensations and exploring the emotions that come up
  • journalling
  • using positive affirmations that allow you to ground yourself
  • becoming an observer of your emotions
  • using statements such as "i am experiencing guilt" as opposed to "i am guilty".
  • noticing and paying extra attention to when we do experience positive feelings.

A mind-body exploration session allows you to have more insight about the subconscious beliefs and explore them in a safe environment so that you can live a more present and fulfilling life.

"Guilt, resentment, grievances, sadness, bitterness, and all forms of non-forgiveness are caused by too much past and not enough present - Eckart tolle."
