Experiencing what feels like a great loss of any kind, whether it’s a loved one, a job, or any type of identification can be extremely difficult.  And then, for some people, that can morph into a sense that their grief and suffering are what make them special. If the suffering goes on a while, it can be difficult to let go of. It becomes part of their new (false) identification.

Grief can be a very human experience of giving up an attachment.  In Spirit, we are eternally One, so there’s nothing to give up.  Releasing an attachment is deeply healing, but it can feel very sad and disorienting.

The grief itself can just be another expression of the attachment.  In a sense, attachments are false idols.  They can never make us happy.

We can lose a loved one, a job, a home, etc, and confront our attachment, release it and feel great Freedom, Peace, and Joy while still loving our loved one, our former job, our former home.  Giving up the attachment doesn’t mean giving up that which we love, it means giving up the attachment, and only the attachment.

When we become identified in our own mind as the one who suffers, the one who is without and in lack, then we begin to affirm it over and over again all day long. It’s insidious.  And it can happen REALLY fast.

One time, I had an experience of meeting two other women at an event. It was just before Mother’s Day and we quickly discovered that all three of our precious mothers had seemingly died of cancer. If we had wanted to, we could have formed a club – the dead cancer mom’s club or something like that.

I don’t identify as someone who has “lost” her Mom because I feel she’s with me in Spirit always. I’m one with her, so she can’t be gone from me even though I don’t see her anymore.  I feel her.

I don’t identify with being motherless because I don’t live in the past. I sometimes briefly recall the past, but not often – and when I do, I share from what I’ve learned in my experiences because that feels truly helpful and that’s my aspiration.

For myself, I’ve learned there’s absolutely no value to holding onto the past. I can let ALL of it go.

Living in the past, no matter how great it might have been, only makes for a limited experience of Love now.

I have found that offering any grief and suffering to the Higher Holy Spirit Self for healing has worked. Of course, it doesn’t work if you’re not actually willing. It can take a while to get to the point of real willingness. It’s worth it.

Suffering IS optional – no matter what your experience has been in this world – you can let it go and willingness is ALL that’s required.

Retreat with me!  I’m offering a deeply healing, renewing and restoring retreat March 16 to 19 in New York.  As always on my retreats we’ll have a lot of fun while we’re doing a lot of deep cleansing and clearing of old emotional and mental baggage so that we can live a much higher quality of life and be more available for LOVE.  It’s such a relief to let the negative patterns and resentments, the guilt, shame and blame go!  If you’d like to start your spring with real clarity and healing, come join me!  Click here for details about my Masterful Living Retreat – the early bird discount is on now – this retreat is open to all – come and bring a friend!

If you’re finding what I’m sharing to be helpful, won’t you please share at facebook and twitter to let others know?  Thank you!
