It has been challenging for me to decide when it is appropriate to share this personal experience with you. When is it a good time to share one’s experience of grief?
Before “Merry Christmas” just didn’t seem right and now with “Happy New Year”, it still doesn’t seem right… However, when I was out walking with a dear friend late last week she reminded me that people experience grief at any time of the year. We are never alone in this.
Through this experience there were two things that became very apparent to me:
- The body does keep the score – emotional and/or physical trauma can bring about discomfort in my body.
- When this happens, I need to follow my intuition and expand my team of healers when needed.
