How to heal...
Losing a loved one is never easy for anyone. I don't know a single person on this earth that can hold back tears when they lose someone they love. I was reminded this week of just how much death can consume you and take over your every day life. Losing something in the physical form has a way of playing on your emotions that makes you second guess everything and everyone around you. We all know that there are many different stages in the process of dealing with death-sadness, anger, denial. But throughout all of these stages, one element of emotion is missing-selfishness. We all want to know why it happened to ME...Why am I feeling this way...What am I going to do? We all go through this selfish stage as if the person's death was some sort of personal attack. When in reality it is simply part of the circle of life. Without death we could never fully appreciate birth. The sadness we feel when we lose someone tends to make us forget about all of the other life experiences and blessings that we encounter on a daily basis. We also have to remember that not all life lessons are pleasant and joyful. Death is certainly one of those life lessons.
Regardless of what you tend to believe spiritually, death certainly makes you sit down and question, appreciate, or have disdain for our spiritual powers. There is a certain feeling that hits you deep down in your soul that either brings you closer or pushes you away from the Supernatural. My personal life has been filled with positive experiences from our spiritual Father. My relationship with God has been THE motivating factor in every healing process. My Father and I have an unspoken bond that lets me know that He is saying "Its okay. It will all work out later". And I have no choice but to believe that. After all, He's never been wrong before, so why doubt him now? For those who may not have a close spiritual relationship with God, their healing process may be different. They may feel the need to go out and test the limits of life, become totally immersed in "worshiping" their lost loved one, or simply go out and find ways to improve their own lives. Whatever way you decide to address death, the most important thing to remember is to actually take the time to address it. Old wounds do not heal on their own. Like anything worth having in life, it takes work and effort to get to the finish line.
