Grief is an emotional master teacher, of how to let go, learn to live without, and love again fearlessly without someone or something that once held emotional value to the human heart and soul. This teacher can also create strong physical and spiritual reactions as well.
Grief is not prejudice; it lives to transform the lives of those who experience:
• Human Loss
• Loss of Expectation
• Hidden Grief
• Pet Loss
• Mid-Life Crisis
• Loss of Health
• Loss of Career
• Empty Nest Syndrome
Big or small, the many varieties of grief are significant and all deserve attention. Acknowledging and taking care of smaller ones like pet loss or a bad breakup may take less time to recover from, but minimized or unattended to smaller losses can be the fault line for a 7.0 grief earthquake or larger, after a big one like human loss.
These normal losses can lead to feelings of sadness despair rage anger and sometimes even revenge. The physical body can be robbed of the strength it needs to take care of personal and professional daily business. A legacy of unanswered questions can leave the mind fractured and left to chew on itself without an appropriate outlet.
For some, smashing into the arms of God for protection and provision is where coverage is sought, while others move away from His omnipresence and into a dark place of confusion to sort through religious social spiritual and cultural stigmas. All of which can lead to over extended periods of suffering.
The shocking truth is that 50 million people a year suffer silently from grief because of the phrase “It just takes time”. This phrase is yesterday’s myth and todays new lie.
If grief was seen as the opportunity it was created for, this firm loving teacher would be recognized, accepted, and moved through with greater momentum, after each grief earthquake small or large. Learning to master grief – is a choice that requires action.

#1 Acknowledge Your Kind of Grief
