How long does it take to go through the grieving process? When am I going to feel better? When will I get out of this funk?

The truth is, is that everybody takes a different time to go through their grieving process. And there’s no right or wrong way; there’s no exact time frame. As you know, after we go through the loss of a loved one, there are many things that we need to do. So, if you’ve just gone through your loss, you’re probably organizing the funeral arrangements, you’re organizing a lot of paperwork, you’re keeping busy, spending time with friends and family. I mean, we have many activities that we need to do and complete right after the loss of our loved one.

After that period passes, you’re going to find yourself being like, what is next? What’s next in my grieving process? I’m alone; nothing is going on, it’s a different time. So, I suggest the best thing that we can do after we’ve gone through a loss of a loved one is to take time to be with you and spend time with you. Look within yourself on the feelings that are coming up. How are you feeling? We need to feel all the pain to heal from the pain. And sometimes, we tend to run away from the pain because it’s too hard to deal with.

I encourage you to sit in that pain that you are experiencing right now and feel it. I mean, if you need to cry and to scream, to get angry, that’s OK, alright, it takes time. So, I would suggest having compassion for yourself. Practice a lot of self-care. Try to get outside and go for walks. The grieving process is different for everyone. The time frame is different for everyone. And one of the things that helped me through my grieving process was asking myself, what do I need right now, at this moment, to support me through my grieving process?

I would close my eyes, and I would listen to my intuition. So, I invite you right now to close your eyes. Let’s close our eyes for one moment. And ask yourself, what do I need right now to help support me in my grieving process? And take a big, deep breath in and release And I would love for you to share what came up for you. What is going to support you through your grieving process?
