Bereavement

Bereavement is a time in our lives when awareness, clarity compassion, mindfulness and stillness walk hand in hand.

No loss can be greater than bereaving the loss of someone we loved; someone who was precious to us. During this delicate moment of our lives, we may need to contemplate our immediate surroundings and environment since no one can replace our loss. This may be a good time to think about getting a pet; especially a puppy to whom we could form a unique bond.
Dogs are known to be telepathic. This unique ability of theirs can help to take us away from our solitude and torment. However, from the minds eye or, point of view it would be good for us to be reminded that no matter how great our loss, we shouldn't take it upon ourselves to carry this pain of ours forever, as many do.

Only the other day my daughter said to me as we were driving in the car, "Daddy, do you have a pen? I would like to write Mum a letter". It has been almost four years, since that dreadful day.
I prefer music therapy to ease my grief and that is why I thrive on
Beethoven 7th symphony, 2nd movement

It was whilst watching the movie, 'The Fall', that opens with Beethoven's 7th Symphony 2nd movemement and the combination of the music and film  inspired me to want to include what is undoubtly one of the most striking pieces of music ever composed to be heard here at Life Without Labels.

Above all else , if we allow ourselves to think out of the box and we can focus on the positive memories of our loss, this is indeed what embracing change is all about.
Even in sadness, we can nurture the beauty that was that is now our most valued gift and perhaps most awesome healer.

Steve, Morrison is truly an inspirational healer having and attended one of healing workshops in Idyllwild and in Palm Springs he is a person I would recommend who could be inspirational in your life.
Steve is his past life used to be a psychotherapist although no longer practicing in one way he told me it was about the label of psychotherapy that bothered him.
That is in another way a good reason to tread very carefully where labelling is concerned.
Steve recently gave me his book that is all about 'loss', called 'An Extra Year. If you have suffered a loss I highly recommend the book that is easily read. For more information click here.
