A Guided Meditation from Doing Grief in Real Life
Grief. It isn’t just an emotion. It can be a physical sensation or a way of thinking. It can be a fidgety frustration that takes over when you stop to dwell on your loss. Grief can present itself as an illness or a spiritual crisis. It can be a raw burning in your chest, or a lifting of a veil that once protected some aspect of your innocence or naïveté. It can even come as a bittersweet love of what used to be.
What is grief to you? This guided audio meditation takes you on a journey to discover how grief lives in your body, mind, heart, and spirit. Listen well to your grief, because when you get to know your grief, you can forge your own best path to healing.
Self-Care: Before listening, you may want to create a quiet, healing space for yourself. You may want to gather paper and pen/cil to reflect in writing. If your grief is especially present and raw for you, please ask a qualified counselor or spiritual director to guide you through this process. Use this meditation as it’s useful to you. You know your healing path better than anyone.
