“There are no words.” It’s a cliche used often and casually in conversation. It means that we can’t explain how we feel or that something is so unreal that we can’t believe it has happened.
The journey of grief is painful. The pain is emotional, physical and mental. It might mean our bones and joints ache and it definitely means that our heart aches. Is there a day that will come when we don’t miss our loved ones or feel that ache? I hear this question often.
I love yoga. One of the concepts that my yoga teacher discusses is the idea of Chakras or energy centers. One of these is the Heart Chakra. I have been focusing on this Chakra lately.
I have found myself telling people many times in the last few months that it is OK to be selfish. It’s OK to conserve your energy and do only what is within your power to do during your time of grief.
