4 Secrets to Embrace Grief During the Holidays

-1I don’t know how you feel about the Holidays, but I know they stir up a lot of emotions. It’s a bittersweet time, especially for those that have suffered the loss of someone close to their heart. Here are some of my secrets to embrace your loved ones, in spirit, during this time:

1. Go Through the Pain

Go through the pain and face it head on. This means ditching the alcohol and quit the binge eating because sadly it won’t bring them back. Believe me, I’ve been there. When feeling overly emotional, it just numbs the pain. Don’t get me wrong, a drink or two is okay but if you’re drinking or eating so that you “don’t feel,” it won’t work out for you in the long run. It’s really easy to overindulge during the holidays anyway, and when you’re going through grief forget about it. It’s magnified! If you’re feeling sad or angry, lose the self-judgment. Either write your feelings in a journal or talk to someone. This means even talking to the person you’ve lost (they’re listening).

2. Keep Open Communication

Open communication is exactly what your loved ones, in spirit, want. If you are speaking to them, pay attention to their response. Their communication may come from a thought that “pops in” your mind or a song that plays on the radio when you “happen” to walk into a room. You may also notice signs that are around you. Pay attention to that penny that showed up or the feather that happened to fly by at the right moment. 3. Embrace Them

Embrace them by lighting a candle or saying a prayer, to acknowledge their soul. You can also write them a letter. Embracing you is embracing them, so they love it if you take time to get a massage or pamper yourself too.

4. Celebrate

Celebrate as if your loved ones are there, because they are! They don’t want you sitting by yourself because you feel guilty having fun without them. They actually want you around friends and family. You can celebrate them by doing things that you loved to do together, like playing your favorite games or movies.

Remember your loved ones are with you always, even during the Holidays. They love to live through you, so make it count!

Say No and Feel Good About It

 There have been so many moments in my life where I felt like I had to say yes, even though I really wanted to say no! After my fiance passed away, my energy was depleted. I had to put myself first, so that I could function. Something needed to change. In the past, my energy was drained because I tried to cram too many things into one moment.  I felt guilty if I said no to people, so I was constantly saying yes to things I really didn't want to do. I realized later that was a big mistake. If we say yes to things we love, and no to the things we don't love, we will be on what I call the "LovEnergy Frequency." What is the "LovEnergy Frequency?" I'm glad you're wondering. It's the most powerful frequency for manifesting the things you love in your life. The more things we do with passion, the more passionate things will come into your energy field. The next time you aren't sure whether you should say yes or no, ask yourself these two questions:

  • Will this drain or maintain my energy?
  • Does my heart feel warm and fuzzy or does my body tighten up at the thought of it?

Remember, it's better to say no if you aren't feeling it. If you say yes and put out a resistant vibe while doing the task, it won't benefit you or those around you. Feel good about saying no, so you stay on the "LovEnergy Frequency."
