Letting Go of Grief to Receiving Peace
I recently worked with a client named Pricilla on the loss of her sister that died of cancer. When I met Pricilla she was interested in meeting someone and having a relationship. Her romantic relationships seemed to be short lived. They were difficult and there were several setbacks. Each time they ended she felt she did something wrong. She felt she was unworthy. She was in great pain. Her unfinished business with her sister’s death was not allowing her to move on.
We sat together in nature calling to the landscape and listening to spirit. I would ask what she wanted to work on. Pricilla would talk about wanting a soul mate. Then she would switch to, “How could my sister leave me?” I could feel her anger and pain. Spirit would show me what to share with Pricilla to help see her through this loss. Eventually, after a few sessions, she began to speak about forgiving her sister for leaving her alone and letting her anger go.
Our sessions in nature were filled with energy shifts as she visited her feelings associated with the death of her sister from a spiritually safe distance. Pricilla also clarified her personal vision for the future. Today, Pricilla reports that she feels much better about her future. She returns to our sessions to take on other challenges at her own pace. She also found her soul mate and began a relationship that has lasted two years.
Living fully invested means finding a place of balance between grief and comfort. If you’re spending your emotional, mental, and spiritual energies on a lost relationship, the same way you did before the relationship changed, then you’re living in pain. A relationship with someone that is no longer available is unfinished business. Finding a way to shift from loss to a place of acceptance, reclaims your personal power. What unfinished business is holding you back from living a joyful life?
