Tips to help one cope with grief spiritually

Spirit needs tending when we grieve, perhaps one of these Tips will make a little difference. That is the intention.

The Serenity Prayer
 

God grant me the serenity

to accept the things I cannot change; 

courage to change the things I can;

and wisdom to know the difference.

Living one day at a time; 

Enjoying one moment at a time; 

Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace; 

Taking, as He did, this world

as it is, not as I would have it;

Trusting that He will make all things right

if I surrender to His Will;

That I may be reasonably happy in this life

and supremely happy with Him

Forever in the next.

Amen.

--Reinhold Niebuhr

Let's pretend that we are strong every moment, and the day will come when we become that.

STRONG

Let's do like Jo does, find something you like to do (photography) and channel your grief into a creative endeavor.

A friend of mine had two devastating losses in her family this year. Three people have suffered from the same disease. I told her, she might want to consider after the grieving period locating an organization that works to find a cure through research. My point is let's find something that will make a difference in people's lives and put our efforts into to honor those we have lost. Whether we do it through volunteer work, or just blessing every one we meet daily. When I take the focus away from poor me, and put the spotlight on others not only do I feel better but I do feel that I am honoring my loved one.

My mother gave me a tiny piece of paper that I found so profound I scotch taped above the kitchen sink for years. I found it yet again inside a book as a devotional card:

Let nothing disturb you;

nothing frighten you.

All things are passing.

GOD NEVER CHANGES.

Patience obtains all things.

NOTHING

is wanting to him

who possesses GOD,

GOD ALONE SUFFICES.

~ St. Teresa

This Tip comes from a good friend of mine via the wonderful AA program:

Move the body, and the mind will follow.

Glad you like the idea Connie. I am honored.

Know this:

Our loved ones are with us ALWAYS. Watching, protecting and wanting us to embrace LIFE while we are here in this form until we meet again.

I love that idea Martha. It is that those simple (but often taken for granted)  gestures of gratitude that make us all feel connected. I'm gonna do that too!

Today as it is Thanksgiving Day's Eve I thought of what to do positive to honor the memory of my loved (really love as the love never ends) one. While I was looking at the photograph of my love one, I thought of 2 people that were truly wonderful to my love one. I called them, and thank them for how great they were to my love one. After I did, it made me feel a bit better. Gratitude is healing to both the one that expresses it, and the one that receives it.

Being the Other Woman/Other Man

This is for anyone who has lost their lover to death and you were the other woman/other man in their life. We have to grieve in silence. I can't find any support groups and feel like I'm the only one going through this situationSee More
