Info-Link: Hypnosis in a Nutshell
from Loss and Grief
this altered attitude, we remember that material things and money, status and
prestige, are mostly irrelevant in the big picture. They take on importance in life as diversions, pastimes, and
even entertainment during the journey through life, a fact that we usually
forget. In this aware state,
however, we are very clear that nothing can go with us to our next place except
our soul. I’ve been wondering
what could be learned from these times of sadness and loss. Is there a way to
continue to honor what we learn and relearn during these chapters of our lives?
truth of deep loss is that we are likely to feel devastated and believe that our
lives will never be the same. We
may revisit aspects of our lives that we haven’t thought about for a long
time. We find ourselves often close
to tears, and at the same time, grateful for the company and caring of our
loving friends. Even the kindness
of strangers touches our hearts. Keeping
our hearts open to receive this love and support is also part of healing.
The truth is most people are essentially loving and considerate of their fellow travelers on this planet. Underneath it all, what we really want to do is to make a difference, to contribute somehow. During a grieving process, we experience over and over that ultimately, it is our relationships that matter, our connections with others. And how sad that at so-called “normal” times we so often take our relationships for granted.
would we experience life if we treated others as if it might be our last
encounter with them? Can you
imagine a world where we remember that life is fragile and precious?
What if we could learn to keep our sensitivity alive when we are
fortunate enough to be in the “stress-free zones” of life?
the way to whatever the “new normal” may be, it is clearly a time of
heightened sensitivity, when we feel genuinely moved by the authentic caring of
people in our world. This generous
love, support and kindness is a lifeline in a personal ocean of despair from
loss or anticipated loss. It helps
to sustain us and helps us to honor our own grief process.
It helps us to keep the faith that eventually we will find ourselves
feeling whole again.
