This is Brad. He chose to heal after losing his older brother in a motorcycle accident and his younger brother through stillbirth. You can imagine Brad’s anger and frustration at becoming an only child, his future a bit scary.
My name is Barbara J Hopkinson of A Butterfly’s Journey To a New Normal. We help individuals and families struggling with grief to find a new normal after experiencing loss of a child, sibling or other traumatic loss.
The fact that you experienced a traumatic sudden loss that you never thought would happen to you is exactly why it is normal to look for answers and wonder what’s beyond this world. This is why we suggest self-awareness, spirituality and other holistic approaches to return to hope.
To avoid allowing grief to crush you, you need to find a way to be hopeful again. You may get comfort from your religion or by exploring other spirituality. You might try some form of energy healing — there are many. You may even decide to visit a spiritual medium to try to connect with your loved one. We can help you find trustworthy resources and understand what to expect.
We suggest taking some quiet time to understand what your beliefs really are. Think about what is important to you, and if there is anything you feel the need to explore. Ask yourself how open you are to unfamiliar things.
Some suggestions regarding spiritual exploration:
- Start with quiet time and a pen and paper, center yourself. Think about the questions above, then write down answers and date the paper.
- To try new things — do some research, then get a referral from a trusted source before you pay anyone. Unfortunately, fakes are out there.
- Give new things more than one try and some time to see or feel a difference. Drink water after each energy work session.
Spirituality is important to find hope. It was for Brad as he chose to heal.
