Dealing with Death and Grief
and the dust returns to the ground it came from, and the spirit returns to God who gave it. [Ecclesiastes 12:7]
We fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal. [2 Corinthians 4:18] NIV
Losing a loved one can be very hard, and even, at times emotionally damaging if negative emotions are held onto.
The most important thing to remember is your loved on is now surrounded by peace, love, and understanding. They do not have regrets, feel sad or feel angry and any negative emotions they had while on this plane are now gone.
The one emotion I see people struggle with most often, after the death of a loved one, is guilt. Please don’t do this to yourself. Your loved one knows how much you loved him/her, even if you feel you were unable to convey it before their death.
It is okay to miss them, and wish you could be with them again here, however, please know they do visit you still, send you energy, and are still involved in your life. It is just that now, it is on a different level. Rest assured, you will most certainly see them again.
Talk aloud to them. Tell them the things you felt you were unable to say. Know that he/she heard you, then release it. Do not keep any negative emotions any longer from that point.
Trust me when I tell you, your loved one wants you to continue with your life and not hold on to negative emotions of any kind. They wish for you happiness, peace, understanding, and most importantly, love.
