Grief, like all of Life’s teachers, has a gift to give us. In healthy grieving, we fully experience all of the uncomfortable emotions that surface after a loss… and when we emerge from our grief journey, we are wiser, more compassionate, more easily able to plumb the depths and soar to the heights of human emotion.
But when our grief is delayed, or traumatic, our losses remain un-integrated, or separate from us. And when we resist or separate ourselves from our losses, we:
- go numb (with meds, TV, shopping, food)
- feel tired or drained, physically
- spin our wheels, mentally
- feel empty and alone and depressed, emotionally
- often, we also shut down our sensuality and sexuality
