Grief, a natural process, isn’t depression, isn’t allowing one’s emotions, outside of a session.
Many are scared of the emotions of grief, yet with feelings expressed comes healing relief.

Grief works in cycles not within stages, with rollercoaster reactions the psyche just rages.
Fixing the bereaved with cliché and statement, just silences their feelings and entraps their lament.
Feeling isolated and imprisoned is an unexpected outcome, and so deep within loss one feels overwhelmingly numb.

Allowing grief to the griever helps the healing along. When the non-grievers understand then reactions aren’t wrong.
Understanding you’re trapped in your grief, you can toss your fear, and then have choice in transcending your loss.

Grief healing occurs with emotions expressed, then the psyche is freed and becomes less depressed.
Finding the gift within loss will re-birth the new you, grieving’s your tool, to create a life that feels true.

Grief is a process that when lovingly seen through, allows feelings to surface of love and acceptance, and lots of grace too.
