Cope with a Major Loss

Commentary by Peter Shepherd
Cope with a Major Loss
“The most beautiful people are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths.” ~ Elizabeth Kubler-Ross
Those people are beautiful because having suffered themselves, they have learned humility and courage, and they can now feel for others in similar predicaments. Life's inevitable disappointments, broken hearts and lost dreams will, if you allow them, make you bitter, resentful and angry. Or you may learn from your experiences in such a way that you grow more forgiving, grateful, wise, compassionate and happy.
“Goodbyes are only for those who love with their eyes. Because for those who love with their heart and soul, there is no separation.” ~ Rumi
Grief is not a sign of weakness, nor a lack of faith... It is the price of love. The capacity to grieve is as much a part of us as the capacity to love. Where there is great grief, there was and there remains great love. Tears are liquid love. Grief is love's unwillingness to let go. But we can accept and absorb grief and let it go, because the separation of grief is an illusion... Those we love don't go away, they walk beside us every day. Unseen, unheard, but always near. Still loved, still missed and very dear.
“Even a happy life cannot be without a measure of darkness and the word happiness would lose its meaning if it were not balanced by sadness.” ~ C.G. Jung
Grief isn't like an illness we recover from. Instead of feeling sorry for ourselves, we would do better to celebrate the life of our loved one, have gratitude for our experiences together, treasure the memories we keep, and continue to hold the person close to our heart forever. When the process of grief is complete we come to a place of acceptance and inner peace. Our love is still embraced, not forgotten.
Workshop A9 ~ Cope with a Major Loss

Trans4mind Training offers a wide range of interactive video workshops, covering each of the major life challenges we encounter in our lives. 'Cope with a Major Loss' is the ninth workshop in the Healing Yourself Module of 9 workshops.

If you have lost someone or something precious it is natural to feel grief. At the present time you may be experiencing feelings of anger, depression, sadness and/or fear. These feelings will pass if you accept and experience them fully; it is resistance that causes more pain. You need to move through the grief process and come to a place of understanding, forgiveness, acceptance and peace.

Any loss can cause grief including death of a much-loved person, a relationship breakup, loss of health, losing a job, loss of financial stability, a miscarriage, death of a pet, loss of a cherished dream, a loved one's serious illness, loss of a friendship, destruction of anything you value. Even positive steps forward mean leaving something behind. You might experience grief after moving away from home, graduating from college, changing jobs, selling your family home, retiring from a career you loved, experiencing the end of an era, or even remembering happy times in the past.

Remember, tears are liquid love. Open the heart, let feelings out, and tears flow. Grief is an expression of your love; a demonstration of your compassion. That is a very positive thing, so try to perceive grief in that positive way as well, not as something to be resisted or suppressed. The tools and coaching in this workshop will assist you in making the journey through grief to a new understanding accompanied by inner peace.

Note: this workshop is also excellent for someone who wants to support a friend to go through grief.
