How to work with sorrow
This time is a hard one for me. I am about to say my final goodbyes to a close relative. I know it is all ok, and that she should pass over.
I have wanted her to find peace for so long, but now that it is here, my sorrow is great. Most of the time is not overpowering, but in those silent moments where I sit quietly and just let my brain relax, the tears flow.
My ego wants her to stay for me and be here forever. My soul knows better. My soul knows her and knows she is not gone at all. She is just in another place. I might even see her more often when she has passed.
I have known for some time that this was the time; I have even predicted it last year. Still it hurts. I am at peace with her finding peace, and I want her to be happy, I want her soul to smile and for her to pass over.
So how do you let go of your grief and your ego?
What I do is to send her love and tell the universe she is coming (though they already know) and tell my ego, she is not gone. I let the tears flow, and give myself permission to be sad.
Sorrow takes time and you should never rush it. You will know it is time to move out of your grief. Some take years of grief and pain, other take shorter time. It is important to allow the pain in your life.
If you hide it, there will be a day when it comes out of hiding. You will need to face it at some point.
Love those close to you
