Be still, take it easy and allow yourself to heal, whither it be your physical body, emotions or your spirit. You need to take time and heal old and new wounds. If keep pushing, you will cause great harm to your physical body, emotional state, or spiritual path. Everything comes in its right time and pace. The more you try to push against that journey, the more mistakes you will make, or the more damage you’ll cause to your Mind/Body/Spirit.
Grief comes in many forms of loss. Loss of a loved one, a relationship, a family pet, a job, one’s health or independence, even one’s own freedom. And dealing with loss comes in many forms, from depression to denial or more serious reactions that affect an individual’s well being and mental health. We all have a way of dealing with every day grief, but I think everyone would agree that prolonged grief is never a good idea and can be detrimental to the wholeness of mind, body and spirit.~ Excerpt from “Dealing With Trials & Grief” by Springwolf
When we try to push things in a certain direction that we “think” we want to go, we end up making choices that take us down a bumpy road. What we want is not always what we need. Especially if we’re making choices from a place of hurt and grief. No matter how small that emotion may seem to be, we allow fear to cloud our judgement and we refuse to see what’s really happening. We set ourselves up for failure and miss opportunities that could be better for us.
In some cases it’s a sign of running away from your emotions, in some cases it’s ignoring the signs and continuing the course of action. And quite often in more than most cases, it’s a reaction made from fear.
Athletes push their physical bodies too far when they face physical pain believing if they ignore it, it will eventually go away. And often that decision causes a career ending injury.Many women jump from one relationship to another for fear of being alone and lonely, finding one bad partner after another. Many men become overcome with grief at the loss of their special partner. In a Harvard University study, sociologists found that men are 22 percent more likely to die shortly after the death of a spouse, compared with 17 percent for women.
Fear of being alone, of not being able to do what we love creates dis-ease in our physical bodies. We begin to manifest the underlying energy of fear and grief into our physical body creating ailments and sometimes serious disease.
But when we face that fear and look for the lesson that helps us overcome it, to conquer the loneliness, we allow our inner heart to heal and become open to the better choices of opportunity that we may have missed otherwise. Stop running away and allow yourself to heal, over come the fears, and find contentment in your self, your whole self, Mind, Body and Spirit.
