Energy Healing and Guidance for Grief & Loss of Loved Ones
Grief is a term that describes all the feelings, thoughts and behavior that someone goes through after bereavement. Grief and mourning involve the natural flow of emotions following the loss of a special someone or something from your life.
Bereavement is not necessarily about losing a loved one. It can be anything that shatters you to the point where your life feels like a puzzle, with the pieces scattered to the winds. But when underlying issues interrupt this natural process, you may either find yourself unable to grieve or else experience prolonged grieving long after you feel you should have let go.
When we lose someone we care deeply about, be it a lover, parent, family member or even a family pet, we are bound to feel something. Everyone deals with loss differently, there is no right or wrong way to Grieve.
Common Emotions Include:
Shock and Disbelief
Right after a loss, it can be hard to accept what happened. You may feel numb, have trouble believing that the loss really happened, or perhaps even deny the truth. If someone you love has died, you may keep expecting them to show up or call, even though you know they’re gone.
Deep sadness is probably the most universally experienced symptom of grief. You may have feelings of emptiness, despair, yearning, or deep loneliness. You may also cry a lot or feel emotionally unstable. That is OK. Tears are known to be cleansing and self acceptance.
You may regret or feel guilty about things you did or didn’t say or do. You may also feel guilty about certain feelings (e.g. feeling relieved when the person died after a long, difficult illness). After a death, you may even feel guilty for not doing or having the opportunity to do something to prevent the death, even if there was nothing more you could have done.
Even if the loss was nobody’s fault, you may feel angry and resentful. You may be angry at yourself, God, the doctors, or even the person who died for abandoning you. You may feel the need to blame someone for the injustice that was done to you.
A significant loss can trigger a host of worries and fears. You may feel anxious, helpless, or insecure. You may even have panic attacks. The death of a loved one can trigger fears about your own mortality, of facing life without that person, or the responsibilities you now face alone.
We often think of grief as a strictly emotional process, but grief often involves physicaoblems, including fatigue, nausea, lowered immunity,weight loss or weight gain, aches and pains, and insomnia.
Hypnotherapy can help balance these emotions and change your perspective towards life in positive ways. This method has been proven to enable your self-conscious to deal and cope with the stress of losing someone or something, allowing you to experience a sense of release and/or relief, to be able to put your thoughts and feelings back into a proper perspective. You will still have your memories, but they will be less charged with painful feelings.
Reiki and Energy Healing can help in the grieving process, by assisting in healing and balancing the body on a physical, emotional, and/or spiritual level.
Table Tipping is a form of mediumship that is extremely helpful in the grieving process. It is connecting and communicating with Spirit through the use of a table as the medium. It is a very profound, joyful, and healing experience, and is a successful tool in healing and releasing grief, by allowing you to connect with loved ones in Spirit or Spiritual Guides, to gain insight into life choices and changes by giving personal messages and guidance on all levels: physical, mental/emotional, or Spiritual.
