MOST RECENT

Long post alert. When I first met you, I immediately thought “uh oh” and almost cursed under my breath. I thought, now? Of all times? Now? It’s too soon. Now? I’m not ready for this. I struggled, resisted, fought it but, bless you, you never let me back down. You told me once, early on, that you will always run to the fight and, my god, you have been true to your word. So then I thought, too soon for what? To love and be loved just how I needed? There is NEVER a timer on love, it is constant, perhaps the only constant in this life. Too soon to be ready? Ready for what? Love? There is no need to be ready, it simply is, if you let it. Of all times now? Well why should I have to wait to finally feel loved? What a waste of a life to wait when it shows up and wants, desperately needs, to be felt. We all wait for that person, or perhaps a rare few people along the course of a lifetime, who simply understand, who we don’t need to constantly try to interpret and translate our spirit to and well, there you were. When I thought I had to suffer something on my own, to repent, to somehow pay for my sadness and loss, you proved me wrong, you showed up out of fkn nowhere and taught me that love can be real, that partnership, done right, only leads to expansion and growth. That love can grow from the toughest parts of our being. That it’s okay to feel some joy and simultaneously grieve. I warned you it wouldn’t be easy, but that it would be real and raw and messy. I think you realised that when I cried more in front of you in the first month, than I ever had in front of anyone my entire life...
So here we are, this week it ended, the chapter I needed so desperately to close, the life and all that it was is now a past journey, and now our life begins. If we are not, now, the two most patient people on earth then I give up. It was and still is, all a journey home for me. To remind me who I am, to learn what love is and to never ever let it leave my heart again. So I just want to thank you, again and again and again, thank you thank thank you for always running to the fight. You are a gift. @diamond_niko_

Grief is a very difficult and consuming process.
-
Imagine your life as a room. When grief arrives, it takes up so much space in the room that you only have a tiny bit of space left for you and your life.
-
You are then tasked with deciding what you have room for and what needs to go. All the beliefs, people and ways of living and working... are they still serving you? -
Remember that whatever you're going through, it's all okay. If you're struggling with grief and how to make sense of it all, feel free to give us a call to see how we can help: (02) 9212 5469 or hello@theindigoproject.com.au.
Words by Lexi Behrndt.

I know that I haven’t written on a contemplated life for some time. But today is a mark on my private calendar of grief that compels me to write some words, from me to you.
While travelling, I read an article in the New York Times by Ruth Margalit titled ‘The Unmothered.’ It is a journey through Ruth Margalit’s grief of losing her mother and marking Mother’s Day on her private calendar of grief.  Anyone who has experienced a loss, she writes, must have one of those – ‘the year becomes a landscape filled with little mines.’ Today is the three year anniversary of my sister’s death.  Ruth Margalit reflects on the saying that we are all going to be told at some stage in our lives – that time heals.  But, she says, ‘Here’s what they’re missing… It gets harder to explain to myself why I haven’t seen her.’ I returned home from overseas last week and I found myself reaching for my phone to message her, to tell her about that funny story that I know she would have laughed at.
Last month, I met a dog named Fenton.  His owner told me that when their older dog died, Fenton grieved for six months, and then after that, he became an old soul.  I know what this feels like, because there was the person I was before my sister died, and now there is the person that I am three years on.  On this difference, Proust is able to explain better than me: ‘For henceforth you will always keep something broken about you.’ So today, as I sit here unable to find the words to really tell you how I feel, I will tell you about my hopes instead.  I hope that I honour your memory in a way that you would admire.  I hope that you are proud of who I am today.  I hope that you know that I am doing the best that I can.  And not a day goes by in my private calendar of grief without you.

I passed my AFT -Aroma Freedom Technique live observation video and am so relieved and excited at the same time. So many friends and clients have benefited from the results of just one session. Dr. Perkus’ studies show that using Young Living Essential Oils with this technique helps one to respond faster and helps to maintain a positive frame of mind. These sessions can be done over the phone, video chat, FaceTime, and Skype if it’s not possible to meet in person.
When I signed up for this class I was not sure if it could help me. While I was learning and observing other classmates I realized that we all don’t respond the same way to the process. It actually took me 4-5 sessions over the course of 4-5 weeks to have my first release. I learned that I had suppressed 20+ years of life’s disappointments and losses. I would see some people in my class respond quickly with a memory or an image of something, I came up with a blank picture repeatedly and I would get so frustrated. When I finally had my first emotional release, so many things came up that I had visited quite often but never dealt with them. Life consumes us and we suppress negative feelings or fear. Maybe you used to be a fun and exciting person and now you’re always low, sad, depressed. Maybe you have trust issues? You forget how you may have been in the past and want to be that person again. Now you and I have the opportunity to be free of negative feelings, fear, cravings, etc. Now you can meet goals or intentions you may have thought about but we’re afraid or too intimidated to go after. You can do it. The best part is you don’t even have to tell me what it is that you’re working through. You just have to let me talk you through it. That’s it... If you want to know more you can DM me with your contact info or go to bio for my email. Si hablo Español

Regrann from @dearmentalhealth.id - Berduka atau grieving setelah trauma adalah hal yang normal

Terlepas apakah suatu peristiwa traumatis melibatkan kematian atau tidak, kamu mungkin harus mengalami kehilangan akan sesuatu termasuk rasa aman dan kepercayaan diri. Reaksi alami atas kehilangan ini adalah berduka.
Seperti orang-orang yang kehilangan orang yang dicintai, kamu yang mengalami trauma juga akan melalui proses berduka. Dan kamu akan melalui proses dan tahap berduka ini lebih mudah jika kamu tetap menjalin kontak dengan orang orang terdekatmu untuk mendapatkan dukungan dan melakukan self help.

Gejala trauma biasanya berlangsung dari beberapa hari hingga beberapa bulan, secara bertahap memudar ketika kamu memproses peristiwa yang mengganggu itu.
Tetapi bahkan ketika kamu merasa lebih baik, kamu mungkin sering kali terganggu oleh kenangan atau emosi yang menyakitkan — terutama dalam menanggapi pemicu seperti peringatan acara atau sesuatu yang mengingatkan kamu tentang trauma itu sendiri. Hal inilah yang biasa kita temui pada sebagian dari kita yang mengalami trauma berkepanjangan hingga bertahun tahun.

Today: that bitterly crushing #disappointment when a guy you are good friends with, and who you thought was cool, understanding, and kinda woke, compares the pain of #rejection to that of #assault and #rape; and then you want to spend the rest of the day in bed crying about gross and scary things that have happened to you, and over the downright horrific things that have happened to friends, friends-of-friends, family members, and to women and girls in general all over the world for all of history so far. When you tried to explain how it cannot be even *remotely* compared, but you don't succeed in your efforts, and wind up feeling sick and emotionally drained.
I know dodgy attitudes are pretty common, but it's so disappointing when you spot them in men you thought "got it", men you care about, men you look up to, etc...
.
Suggestion to @awardsforgoodboys : when he understands that women have a hard time navigating the terrifying catch-22s of the world but then compares the pain of rejection/being labelled a creep to the pain of rape and its longterm consequences.
Followup question for @awardsforgoodboys : is this a #throwthewholemanaway moment? Cos fml...

Regrann from @recipesforselflove - Your feelings are valid, absolutely all of them. Especially the negative ones, feel them fully, process them and then let them go.

Var det någonting jag lärde mig av att sörja så djupt som jag gjorde så var det värdet av rutiner. Det är livsavgörande att ha ledstång och staket när ens inre är kaos. Ta ett andetag till, ett steg till, drick en kopp kaffe.

Today I watched two little boys release butterflies with special messages of love to their precious auntie.
I watched a gathering of family and friends from all seasons celebrate an amazing life together with a Hawaiian luau.
I cried with the people I love and strangers over our loss this side of heaven. The tears poured freely while the words fell short... how do I even begin to share the joy she gave the world and each person who knew her in it.
Today we did our best to honor the memory of a life gone so soon... in 36 years she touched so many lives, hearts, and souls. I don’t understand why, only God knows that, but she lived well and loved incredibly!
.
@elyssajoym You live on in the hearts of all who knew you because you loved so much. You will always be family to me. I love you, always have, and always will.
Rest in peace my dear, I will meet you again in heaven.

Art heals. Today I turned to this piece of plywood. #mixedmedia #plywood #grieving #girl #uglycry #acrylic #inks

Question for all of you out there

Would you desire or choose to meet your greatest love again, if they are not already by your side?
Even if you are perhaps already married to another?
If they are perhaps now married?
Would you risk feeling all those powerful emotions again?
If you were allowed only to spend one more day of your life with that person?
What would you do?

Had a good #conversation with a #friend tonight and some really #wise things were said along the way. Good #reminders, and #soothing for anyone going through a tough time....or #heartbreak. So for anyone who needs it, I figured I would share some of it, and some #randomthoughts I had to go along with it:

1) There is nothing special or #complicated about what you're #feeling. It feels like it is, but it's not. You just have to #keepmovingforward.
2) They don't miss you. You are #notanexception.
3) You did, do, and always will #belong to yourself first.
4) #Loss / #heartbreak / #grieving - it isn't linear. Just because you were okay #yesterday, doesn't mean you will be okay #today. Just because you aren't okay today, doesn't mean you won't be okay #tomorrow.

5) #Perspective is everything. Your understanding of something does not equate #universaltruth. Neither does anyone else's.
6) Give yourself time, #patience, #respect, and #understanding. You deserve it as much as anyone else.

If tonight feelings of defeat have encompassed you.... fall into JESUS dear ones. If your tears are your food day and night.... fall into JESUS dear ones. If you've come to the end of yourself for the tenth time today..... fall into JESUS.... HE is with you, holding you, catching every single of your tears. The sorrow.... the ache.... the pain that you feel is known. HE is with you, HE will breathe for you when you can't.... HE will carry you when you can't even stand.... HE is with you, holding you so close, breathe dear ones.... HE'S got you 💙 #anchoredinhishope #heisclosetothebrokenhearted #hebindsuptheirwounds #joycomesinthemorning #sufferbravely #letfaitharise #jesuschangeseverything #grief #grieving #grievingparents #grievingmama #bereave #bereavedparents #childloss
