Grief: How to Meet It, then Part With It

Updated: Jan 24

Greetings Divine child —

Much like fear, grief can be crippling. If it is not handled with care and intention, it can consume your life. But grief is also a natural phenomenon; it is part of the human experience. Grief is a feeling. And just like any other low-vibrational or fear-based feeling, it must be felt and released in order for you to forge ahead on your path of self-evolution.

Easier said than done, right? We know that grief is often tangled up with other emotions, like fear and guilt and powerlessness. But that does not change the process of feeling and releasing. It might take a little longer, and the journey might have a few more twists and turns, but if you give yourself the time and space needed to truly feel through your grief, you can release it, and you will heal. But you have to be willing to meet your grief — and then part with it — in order for the healing to begin.

Many people stop before they meet their grief. They deny or minimize their true feelings (be it the sadness or emptiness or loneliness associated with grief), like refusing to pull out a thorn in their foot, pretending it's not there. Other people may meet their grief — they may pull the thorn out — but then they cannot part with it. They focus only on the wound, constantly picking at it so that it never heals. Neither scenario serves your highest good. The only way to heal is to meet your grief (feel your feelings) and then part with it (release the frequency).

Sometimes, it might be too daunting to feel and release your grief because it's such a complex emotion. It might be easier to simplify it, breaking it down into smaller elements. What happens in your body when you say the word "death?" Is there any physical discomfort? A twinge in your chest, a lump in your throat, a pain in your back? Whatever it is, focus on it. And be sure to allow yourself to see your truth. Do not minimize, overanalyze, or deny what your body is telling you. Just feel it. Breathe and focus on the sensation until it lessens. This is the real work. This is how you release the frequency. This is how you heal. It might take a long time, and it will undoubtedly take more than one session. But it is essential to your self-evolution. And every little bit you work to release helps raise your frequency.

As you continue to meet and release your grief, whether in stages or all at once, know that you can find strength in your beliefs. You are a Divine creator, and you create your reality through your beliefs. If you have certain beliefs about what happens after death, those beliefs can aid and support your journey through healing your grief. For instance, there are countless interpretations of what happens after death, and many of them claim that death is like waking up from a dream, or taking off a tight shoe. It's a peaceful experience, something we may not be able to comprehend in our human form.

Life on Earth is a special experience, a temporary state of being-ness. You can choose to grieve, to let go, and be thankful for the time you had with your loved ones. You can choose to believe that separation is an illusion. You can choose to believe you are always and forever connected to the Divine All, that you are never left behind, that you are never alone. You can choose to believe that death is not the end, but a transition from one experience to the next.

It has been said that when we don't let go of our lost loved ones, we keep their energy tethered to the Earth plane, preventing them from continuing on their journey and fulfilling their greater purpose, while also hindering our own evolution. That is why it's essential to feel through your grief, so that both of you may move on. The reward of this important self-work is not just for your benefit; it ripples out, positively affecting those around you, and even those who have transitioned beyond.

Be gentle with yourself, but also disciplined enough to evolve into what you want to be. Only you can do this work. Breathe. Feel. Release. Heal.

Remember who you are — you are Divine Love.
