Grief: The Unlived Life

Grief is a powerful energy that can heal or destroy. A lot of energy can be tied up in the unlived grief. Our bodies stores this unlived grief.

It takes courage to experience the intensity of this grief, to reawaken the body little by little until we feel once more alive and inspired.

Healing grief is a process of coming home to our truest self, to the loving presence that we truly are. As Rilke wrote, the protected heart that is

never exposed to loss, innocent and secure, cannot know tenderness; only the won-back heart can ever be satisfied: free, through all it has given up, to rejoice in its mastery.
