Dealing with sadness and grief can feel overwhelming, but there are answers. Here is the 2nd part of Lori's 10 Healing Sadness and Grief tips you may find helpful and healing. I have always found great comfort in this quote: “It is better to have loved and lost than to have not loved at all.”

Tip #6 - Many who have loved ones who transition want to know, “Where is my loved one?” Spirituality has been telling us and research is now beginning to prove he or she is well, strong and happy surrounded by love. Realize your loved one is fine — quite fine.

Tip #7 - Realize your Higher Power has made it possible for you and your loved one to meet here on earth. Think about that - If it was your child who has died, just imagine the miracle of that wonderful new little baby that you created or that you chose to join your family - hat are the chances?? Or someone else - maybe someone you fell in love with - there are BILLIONS of people on earth, and out of those billions of people you could have been with, you and your loved one were brought together here. Find comfort knowing your Higher Power will also make sure you and your loved one will be together again “over there.”

Tip #8 - Often the best way to overcome our own sadness and grief is to help someone else feel better. What we give out into the world comes back ten-fold. That includes the love and help we extend to another. Make a list of all the people you know who are feeling sadness or grief. Next to each name write something nice you can do to brighten his or her day. As you follow through with the list of actions, you will find healing, peace, gratitude and comfort in doing so.

Tip #9 - Humans have incredible resilience. Having faith and connection to a Higher Power of 100% pure light and love can help relief, healing and recovery comes quicker and easier.

Tip #10 - For some people, the greatest sadness and grief relief is found in their spirituality. Some people who have little prior spiritual beliefs seek answer during hardships or loss. Read spiritual books. Listen to spiritual CDs. Watch spiritual DVDs.
