Thanks for outlining the stages of grief and the coping tips. Also for highlighting that there is a great blog about the stages of grief. I was able to find part 1 but not part 2. Also, sometimes I’ve tried to locate a blog that you have commented upon in the past, and I am having difficulty navigating the blog section. Do you have any suggestions about how to find a specific blog, or just good ideas about how to use the blogging section to the best advantage?
Thanks so much for your many responses to participants and all the care that you show.
Blessings to you.

Great – Thanks!

Part 2 talks about multiple losses. I at one time had 2 losses. I used these tips and got through it.

SG – thanks for the direction and explanation about the parts to the blog about the stages of grief. I’m definitely going to read the second part too. The wonderful thing is that so much information is now available for our healing, more so than ever before. E K Ross did write about the grief issue quite awhile ago, but things are coming to light like wildfire more and more. I’m glad that you had the wisdom to get the help you needed and to follow through!
Blessings to you

A friend whose son was killed in an auto accident is using these books to help with grief:

I offer you my deepest condolences for your friend’s son. It makes it doubly difficult to deal with when a death is due to an accident. I am sure it is a heartache for you too, but I know that your friend is so lucky to have you standing by her in her time of need.
Blessings to you.

polestar- Thanks. It has been hard.

These meditations could also be used for the loss of dealing with a psychopath. The one I especially like is ‘Everything changes, nothing is lost’.

Oh wow – that is a great one!

Another meditation is – Smile, breathe and go slowly.

I like this one too! We can experience so much more in our lives when we take time to really look and to think, feel and even notice the precious gift of breath.

Another meditation is- Trust yourself. You know more than you think- Dr. Spock. you know best about your grief and how to grieve.

Anger is part of grief.

Still like ‘Smile, breath and go slowly.

Here’s a quote from “ The Hidden Messages in Water “ by Dr. Masaru Emoto : “ Words are the vibrations of nature. Therefore, beautiful words create beautiful nature. Ugly words create ugly nature. This is the root of the universe. “
Blessings to you

Good to understand the grieving process.

Here’s a quote ( though not exactly related to grieving ), but a good one I think:
It’s from Almine’s book , “ Book of Runes – the art of self guidance “:
“ When we are with those who are energetically incompatible, we experience a shrinking feeling. The new creation brings kindred spirits in the form of family and friends. In the deep satisfaction of their company, we can feel our souls expand. “
October 13, 2019 at 7:29 pm #54739
yes, a good one!!

We will move back and forth many times- back into the dark woods and forward into the light.
