Grief is a powerful emotion that strikes in waves, sometimes leaving you paralyzed and other times provoking intense feelings like fear and anger. Coping with the loss of a child is an overwhelming experience that brings unique challenges for each individual.
This blog post will walk you through a transformational healing session with me, a transformational healing coach, and a client who has lost a child. The focus here is on understanding the intricate tapestry of emotions and how they manifest in the physical body.
The Struggle with Mixed Emotions
A client's struggle vividly represents the emotional complexity that comes with loss. She experiences mixed emotions, including fear, anger, and apathy. These feelings bring a lot of confusion and uncertainty, hindering the grieving process. For instance, the anger she holds can be an impetus to fight for justice for her daughter, but she also recognizes the toxicity of holding onto this emotion for too long.
The Importance of Individual Healing
It's essential to acknowledge that everyone's journey through grief is personal. As the client mentioned, she is an introvert, finding solace in her privacy. On the other hand, her husband is an extrovert and finds healing through sharing their story. Both approaches are valid, but the client must find coping mechanisms that align with her introverted nature.
The Transformational Healing Approach
The healing session with me begins by grounding the client in her present experience. Focusing on her body sensations and breath encourages her to momentarily step out of the whirlwind of her thoughts and emotions. This exercise serves as a gateway to dive deeper into the underlying feelings she might be carrying.
Step 1: Identifying Emotions and Physical Sensations
I asked the client to identify where she feels her emotions in her body. The client is aware that her body feels "buzzy," and she has "energy in her palms," pointing towards an emotional state manifesting physically.
Step 2: Grounding Through Breathwork
I then guided the client through a breathwork exercise designed to bring awareness to her heart area, further focusing her attention on the sensations there. This simple yet potent technique brings some stillness to the mind and helps the client get more in touch with her emotions.
Step 3: Emotional Release
As the client identifies the sadness in her heart, I direct her to visualize it as a " color" and to breathe in and out with added vocalization. This facilitates emotional release, allowing the sadness to flow instead of becoming a stored, stagnant emotion.
The Journey Continues
As the session concludes, the client feels contentment alongside her sadness. This shift, although subtle, signifies the emotional progress she's made in just one session. With continued therapy, support from spiritual guides, and transformational healing sessions, she is hopeful about navigating through her complex emotions and, eventually, finding peace.
Coping with grief is a long and challenging journey, but it's essential to know that help and support are available. Transformational healing approaches, such as the one I am offering, can be invaluable in this journey. Through self-awareness, breathwork, and emotional release, individuals can better understand themselves, make more precise decisions, and begin the process of healing.
Even small shifts in emotional awareness can signify progress. And remember, you're not alone on this journey. Support is always available.
