Today is a tough one for me. For the many skills that I possess, grief has been one that haunts me.. I found this great picture of a Stress Shield and the Stages of Grief. I will post them below.. It is in times like this where a simple action of feeding yourself well, relaxing, doing what you can only do when sitting down... like having a cat in your lap.. or just looking out the window.. is ok.. don't be hard on yourself to get things done. As it comes in waves and with significance on days that perhaps in the past you did not honor.. quite as much as you now think you should have.. and let the wave pass you by. I had a very weird dream this morning and woke up at 4am which is my connecting hour.. so there is strange things that are working on me right now. And I am sure if we were to talk it would be happening to you too. And in the future if I can help you to look at this better or differently... then going through this now for me.. is critical to the learning curve that all in the Healing Arts must know. So here is the Shield.. and it is now next to me.. and I honor my mother for what she gave to me.. LIFE.. LEARNING.. HEALING.. LOVE...CARE.. NURTURING.. I LOVE YOU VERY MUCH MOM.. RIP .. she was a beautiful warm caring woman and died June 15, 2014 and was released into the great care of GOD and La MER.. the Pacific Ocean at Morrow Bay with my fathers ashes as well .... in a nice Ceremony aboard the Minerva owned by Red Anchor Charters. What a lovely day that was with my whole family.. that which is important in life.. your family. And don't let anyone hurry you with grief.. Grief does not come with an expiration date. But with time it should diminish.. two years ago.. that just doesn't seem like long enough ago.
