Grief has a way of pooling in our being. It doesn’t always differentiate one grief feeling for another.
Sometimes it feels that if we let ourselves open the floodgates to our feelings, all that we have grieved and have experienced as lacking throughout our lives will snowball and overpower us in one big tsunami. We can close off to it in this fear of it.
The truth is, if we can get support to learn to feel safe enough in ourselves so as to let ourselves be with and feel our pain and express it with awareness, we can set it free.
As spiritual poet Rumi said.. ‘The cure for pain is in the pain.’
That same blessed tsunami can wash away the weight we carry and no longer need.
Let grief wash you into freedom. Yes extremely painful, but such a fierce grace.
