Different Shapes and Forms of Help with Grief and Loss



Set aside the confusion, fear, and whatever else may be a block on your path to healing from grief and loss to explore some other options.

The paths to healing are numerous.  I have always said, “Different strokes for different folks” and “You don’t know what you don’t know”.  Decisions, decisions…what to do?

Are you a doer or a thinker?  Can you do things alone or do you need help and someone close by?  Do you need physical, visual stimuli to keep you on track or can you remember things in your head?  Be careful with this one, grief and loss brings confusion and trying to keep everything straight in your head may be a problem.


Now, I will touch base on some ideas or areas you may choose to delve into.

  • After Death Communication (ADC)
  • Books (related to where you are or where you want to be)
  • Counselling
  • Deeper meaning to life
  • Grief Specialists (one, who can help with several areas related to grief)
  • Groups with a common concern
  • Life Coaches
  • Meditation (there are different types & ways of meditation)
  • Mediums
  • Religion
  • Spirituality
  • Workshops
  • Online resources

There are people who use the loss experience to expand the person they are; by this I mean using the loss as a catalyst to grow and understand life and self differently.  Seeking help may initially be about getting better after a loss.  Moving forward can be scary but each step forward “is a first time once”.

Imagine you teaching, sharing or being an example for others to find love and forgiveness for themself and others.  You are forever changed by your experiences and at the same time you are alive.

Believe that life is worth living and your belief will create the fact.

By William James

And in the end it is not the years in your life it is the life in your years.

By Abraham Lincoln
