5 Ways to Move Forward When Grief Resurfaces

By March 5, 2019 Blog

Have you ever had grief resurface?

Grief will always sneak up on us, but it’s how we feel about it as time moves forward…

I’m going to share 5 tips to help you through when grief resurfaces.

I had this question a few weeks ago. The person said, My loved one died years ago, and my grief is resurfacing. Why is this happening?

Well, sometimes, this could be a form of delayed grief, and it’s used to describe grief that is postponed and resurfaces sometime later.

Sometimes, when we go through such tremendous loss, we tell ourselves that we must be strong, and then, we suppress all of those feelings, and we hold them within ourselves, or we tell ourselves that we need to keep busy rather than take time to go through our grieving process and that’s part of why grief resurfaces over and over again.

GRIEF RESURFACING TIP #1 -JUST BREATH

I would like you to take a big, deep breath in right now. Just take a big, deep breath, the biggest one you’ve taken in all day, and then, release it to.

Isn’t that great?

I find that a lot of us don’t take the time to breathe. So that’s why it’s important to stop and breathe. So let’s move right into it. So my first tip is to accept that this isn’t serving you anymore, and understand that you’re hurting, like deep down within yourself. So accept it. Accept that, you know, you got some feelings coming up. You know you have some tears, some emotions, some deep-rooted pain. Just accept it.

TIP #2 -SURRENDER

Surrender to the universe and ask for help, okay? When you are feeling all of that, all of those awful, like, unaligned feelings, like you feel like your feet aren’t on the ground anymore, it’s best to surrender. Surrender to the universe, and you can do this with meditation, with Kundalini meditation. You can do it by surrendering, getting on your knees. Just releasing and let go. Let go of the control, all the controlling thoughts and feelings.

TIP #3 -SPEAK YOUR TRUTH

Tell someone you trust what you’re going through. Just tell them that you’re having a difficult time, you’re having a rocky time right now, and, that’s okay. I love to say to people that I talk to, if you are admitting to me that you’re feeling a little bit rocky right now, you have resistance, you’re feeling a tremendous sadness, this gives you the opportunity for healing to come in, and that’s, it’s an amazing time.

TIP #4 -FIND A MENTOR

Find someone that can help navigate you through your healing journey. None of us should have to do this alone. It’s hard enough; you know that we’ve gone through the loss of our loved one, and we’re feeling all the feelings.

Just find that person that you feel in alignment with, that you feel good, that you feel that connection with, and ask them for some help. Get some, you know, help, help with navigating your healing journey.

This is what I love to do with my clients. I love to help them through their healing journey, and, you know, be that guide for them, so they don’t have to feel alone. Okay, there’s nothing worse than feeling alone.

AND FINALLY, GRIEF RESURFACING TIP #5 -HAVE FAITH

Have faith and hope that you are on the right path, okay?

You have so much to look forward to. You have your entire life ahead of you, and even though that you’re having a challenging time right now, there’s an obstacle, it’s okay.

You are going to find your way. Life is challenging. We go through ups and downs, but they’re all, you know, lessons to be learned as well, and we grow from all of the hardships that we go through. Know that you’re going to be okay. Have faith.

If you would like to reach out to somebody that you trust and to, you know, get some guidance through your grief journey, that’s okay. You don’t need to do this alone, and I am here for you.
