Grief is a part of our life. It comes when we least expect it and staggers our hearts with the weight of our losses. Having lost many loved ones in recent years I have turned to several coping methods to sorrow and grief. The first is prayer. It comforts me to know that my beloved God is in control of the whole circle of life. That he knows best, even if it hurts so badly those of us left can barely breathe. The second is to be gentle with ourselves. Sorrow and grief is a process and it takes time, lots of time to work through it, so be kind to yourself and patient with the journey. Third, their is a homeopathic called Rescue Remedy, by Bach flowers and it helps with shock.
Last but certainly not least is the essential oils. As I have mentioned in previous blogs, essential oils work well during high stress times (which grief and sorrow certainly are!) I found the essential oils in conjunction with tapping is a profound way to shift our bodies into a more relaxed and calm state. They assist with our sleep patterns, our eating habits and our ability to function more effectively. Grief and shock can often set many of our “normal” ways of functioning into a painful and chaotic dance. So here are my top recommendations for this time of grief:
Bergamot, Roman Chamomile, Lavender are the single oils, best for the neck, wrists, over the heart and put into your hands and held against your nose….
The oil Blends which work beautifully are Forgiveness, Gentle Baby, Hope, JOY,Present Time, Release, Sacred Mountain, Transformation, 3Wise Men, Valor and White Angelica. Diffuse them, Inhale directly, massage your feet and hands with a carrier oil (such as coconut or grapeseed) Put them on the back of your neck and over your heart. Bathe in them. I use JOY over my heart.
If you are reading this I imagine you are or have recently experienced a deep loss. I am so sorry for the loss of your beloved and I believe that God works in mysterious ways. If there is anything I can do to help you please contact me.
