There have been a few people that I know personally, who have lost a loved one recently. Coping with a loss is painful, and you may experience many emotions such as anger and guilt. Allow yourself to feel… it is necessary for healing.
When grief is expressed and allowed to be experienced, it can actually strengthen and enrich your life. There are many kinds of loss such as loss of a loved one or a pet, loss of health or job, a relationship breakup, and loss of a home from a catastrophic event such as a tornado, hurricane or war. The list is long, and any feeling of loss can trigger grieving, like selling a business or a home. The more significant the loss, the more intense the grief.
Everyone heals differently, and healing usually happens gradually. There is no “normal” timetable for grieving, so be patient with yourself, and with others who are going through the process. Trying to ignore your pain or keep it from surfacing will only make it worse. For real healing, it is necessary to face your grief and actively deal with it. Crying doesn’t mean you are weak. Showing your true feelings can help you, your family and/or your friends.
Below is a meditation that I will hope will help you or a loved one to cope with grieving of any kind. This meditation can also help your body to heal from disease or illness. The cells in your body are living consciousness, and they can be programmed to heal. You can print this meditation, and sit with it in your lap as a reference while you are meditating.

By Marilyn Cramer, RMT, Cl.Ht
Take a few deep breaths… let your body adjust to get completely comfortable. Inhale… feel white light filling & cleansing your body… and exhale. As you exhale, feel your body melting, and becoming more relaxed. Inhale (breathe)… and exhale (breathe). As you hear the sounds around you, you feel yourself slipping into deeper relaxation. Inhale (breathe)… and exhale (breathe)… Release and relax… Good.
Now, relax all the muscles in your scalp, forehead and eyes. Feel your muscles letting go. All the tension flows out of your face… softening… soothing. Relax your cheeks, your jaw… relax your neck… feel your muscles oozing into the softness surrounding you… Good…
You are going deeper & deeper into relaxation… Relax your arms… feel them completely surrendering… relaxing every muscle… Now, relax your chest, your abdominal muscles… relax your organs… feel them sinking in their soft place to rest. (Pause) Healing white light fills your organs, smoothing away any anxiety. Feel the muscles and bones in your back melting into the soft area you are resting in… Healing white, liquid light is smoothing & lubricating all of your joints and bones, and smoothing away any anxiety and pain… Down, down, deeper into a state of complete relaxation.
Now, relax your legs… feeling the muscles nestling in a soft place… melting away all tension. The healing white light fills every area of your body and mind that needs healing… smoothing away any pains and anxiety. Feel your ankles relax… as you go deeper into a relaxed state. Feel your feet and toes… totally relaxed… as you are now in a state of deep relaxation.
Now, allow yourself to fully feel the grief… the loss of your loved one or thing. Feel where it hurts the most… where it is lodged in your body and your mind. Allow yourself to be fully engulfed in your sorrow… your pain. Allow yourself to cry, scream, sob… fully immerse yourself – do not hold back. Allowing yourself to feel your grief will help you to heal.
Wherever is hurts, touch that part of your body. If the pain is in your heart, place your hand on your heart and gently tap it. Tap the pain and the grief out of your body, comforting yourself as you do this. (Pause) Gently rock, and tap the pain and grief away…
(Continue doing this until you feel the pain of grief has subsided).
Imagine your grief is healing now… wherever the grief is lodged in your muscles, organs and bones is healing down to a cellular level.
See that part of your physical and emotional body as perfect and healed.
Loss of a loved one:
Imagine that any of your thoughts and emotions that need healing is doing so right now… Change your thought patterns about your loss – know that your loved one is in a beautiful place with the Angels… free yourself of the bondage in your heart. (Pause) Let it go… White, Angelic light is healing your body, your mind, and your spirit right now… White, Angelic light is healing your loved one right now, too. This white light is clearing, cleansing and protecting both of you…
Loss of anything:
Release whatever needs healing, and let it heal now… Perhaps there are colors, textures, sounds, or feelings that will help you to heal…
Let Light into your Being… and all the things that are up for your healing can flow out of you now… Perhaps the things that need healing hold a certain sound, vibration or color… This negative energy that you no longer need flows out of you at an exit point in your body… an exit point that your body lets you know of… (Pause). Perhaps it is a finger or a toe, or somewhere else that your body knows exactly the best exit point for this negative energy to leave you… Let all the discordant energy that no longer serves you exit now…
Now, let healing light and sound fill the empty spaces where the discordant energy once resided that you just released… Fill the area(s) with love and healing light…. Perhaps there is a certain color of love… and a color of this healing light… Fully replenish these spaces with healthy, vibrant sounds of love and healing color…
Now, fill all the cells in your entire body with Love. Tell every cell in your body that you love and appreciate them. Thank your mind and your cells for being healthy and vibrant, and for functioning at their highest level. Tell your DNA it is beautiful and perfect. (Long Pause). Fill your entire energy field with loving light…
Now, perhaps you notice you feel lighter and healthier… more vibrant… Know that you are healed. Know that your loved one is safe, happy and cared for by the Angels. Know you’re your body and mind are recovering… (Pause)
Know that everything you felt is changing on a deep, cellular level. All the cells in your body are realigning themselves with health and joy… your cellular memory has shifted, and all your cells are vibrating with love, joy, and pure health… Feel how empowering this is for you… you are living in pure health and love right now… (Pause)
The cells in your body have a new memory – a memory of love and health and abundance… it affects you fully and deeply…
Now, every time you feel grief physically, mentally or emotionally, you always can clear and release the grieving energy easily.
Whenever you realize a block in your path, you remember how easy it is to know what the block is and heal it… The Angels are with you now…
And whenever you feel that you are having trouble with your health or your life, you always remember that your self-healing is a breath away… and here for you now…
Whenever you feel you aren’t getting the answers that you seek, you remember how easy it is to meditate – to open and elevate your consciousness and tap into your God Source… being able to heal completely and easily. The Angels are with you now, helping you…
The 3 R’s: As I count to 3…
- 1 - You will be able to return to this state easily, whenever it is appropriate. Take a few deep breaths…
- 2 - You will find it easy to remember everything you need to remember. Stretch and move around, and become aware of your surroundings…
- 3 - You will awake feeling alert and refreshed. Open your eyes… feeling fully refreshed and whole.
