The term bereavement actually means to be torn apart. If a person gives this much thought, one realizes, this is quite like what it feels when an enormous loss happens. We actually feel as though our world, our life, our self, our body, our soul and heart has been torn apart and will never feel the same again. This is the beginning of the grief journey and sadly we will not feel the same ever again but the hope in this is is WILL heal and we will integrate this loss and transform into something better. I was “given the term “Somewhere In Between” because when we are grieving and mourning we actually are somewhere in between. We are no longer where we once were(and very possibly still long to be) and yet we have not arrived on the journey to where we are going. That leaves us at a uncomfortably lonely, painful and at times dark place where we feel like no other person in the world understands how we feel or sometimes even cares to. Sometimes, that leaves a person benefiting from a companion like myself; to come along side you and not leave you. I don’t have the answers to the journey but I will stay and I will stay curious about all your emotions and stories and each path we take until we find ourselves at a “softer” place. Your symptoms will show me how to support you and I will welcome each of those symptoms in a sacred, hospitable manner. Lets chat about the difference between grief and mourning. Your mourning is actually one of the most beautiful ways in which you can show honor to the person to whom you have lossed.
