Grieving is a Natural Process of Acceptance and Feeling
Grieving is a natural process so addressing it ought to be natural. It is a process of acceptance. The various stages of grief such as shock, denial, anger, sadness, and acceptance reflect the navigation though this process of acceptance. Allow yourself to feel the various feelings of grief as they naturally come up. Grieving is not intellectual acceptance; it has to be accepted and felt in your heart. Everyone grieves in their own way. Life may present experiences to help you navigate through your grieving. Allow yourself to guided.
The death of a loved one forces us to look at the impermanence of life. Once you look at things the way they really are, you can start healing. As long as you see things as they are and keep your heart open, the grieving will come in its own time. This transition is more about committing to a process of acceptance and allowing yourself to feel. It is about releasing denial, guilt, anger- and mostly the unwillingness to accept the loss. Open yourself up to discovering how you new life without the at person will be. It will be different. It may be sad and lonely for a while, but a new life will open up if you make room for it in your heart.
" Emotion is the chief source of all becoming conscious. There can be no transforming of darkness into light and of apathy into movement without emotion." ~ Carl Jung, Psychological Aspects of the Mother Archetype, 1938
