Your grief does not need to be healed. There is nothing wrong with your grief. Nothing needs to be fixed. It is a natural reaction to the inevitable changes that happen as a part of life. Grief is purifying and healing, it keeps open the channels of the heart. Grief is another form of love, of loving and extending gratitude for what is changing, what has been lost and what is passing away. Grief itself is healing. It is a form of health to grieve, it keeps you vibrant, alive and open to life. If you do not grieve, it is a heart that is also closed to love and closed to life.
What is broken is a world that does not allow grief to be. What is broken is the lack of space that is held for love to pour its wisdom and grace into your tender heart. What is broken is a world where grief and emotions are pathologized and made wrong, making us feel wrong for experiencing what is normal. Even the death industry has been turned into a capitalistic commodity that has removed the experience of death and loss from our lives and placed it away from us, putting a price on it where it is expensive to die. Where, in times of deep grief one must think about money and expenses. What is broken is the shame that is created in the wounds where love wants to reside. What is broken is that we do not know how to be with what is most natural and beautiful about the flow of life. Love, praise, grief....love, praise and grief.
There is nothing wrong with your grief. There is nothing about your grief that needs to be healed. It longs to sing its song, to be witnessed, heard and held. For its wisdom to be known and for it's love to be praised into an even fuller life than what you had thought was possible.
