I am sorry for your loss. Grief is perhaps the most disconcerting experience that you will ever have.

Unfortunately, it is not an option, or something that you can put aside until you are ready to deal with it. Grief takes you along for the ride, not vice versa as it comes in waves, often taking you quite by surprise.

You cannot even prepare for the loss of a loved one because the pain of grief is deeper and more profound than you ever imagined possible. Which is why people often try to shut it down, terrified of opening the door and never being able to shut it again. It really can seem like this pain which is too much to bear will never end.

  • You can however, organize your life so it is easier to ‘take a break’ to grieve without having to worry about ‘what you need to get done’.
  • And you can allow yourself to go through the grieving process rather than repressing and holding onto it – which just keeps the pain inside.

Heal Your Pain: Releasing the Emotions of Grief and Loss is a very special workbook that I co-authored with a grief client Elaine Williams, who happened to be a award winning author. It led us through many twists and turns for more than a year as it shared the journey through grief with us. We discovered many amazing things that no-one ever talks about.

Until now, grief has been a journey of trying to cope and deal with something so painful and distressing that it shakes you to the very core of your being.

Until now there has been no clear direction, no defined path of healing to refer to, and no comfort to find other than the words “what you feel is perfectly normal” and “it will feel better in time.”

Until now grief has been a roller coaster ride of distress, pain and long term implications of this traumatic experience.

Heal Your Pain sets forth a clear path through grief and mourning, with simple step-by-step direction, and an effective way to completely and permanently release the pain – using a version of the Greene’s Release Technique – the Greene’s Emotional Release.

Heal Your Pain includes support and guidance for those who are struggling with a new grief, as well as for those who wish to heal the pain of a loss that occurred years, or even decades ago. Heal Your Pain makes it possible to heal and recover from this traumatic wound, and rebuild your life.

There is life after loss….

You will:

  • Release your stored emotional pain.
  • Dissolve overwhelming emotions as they surface.

    + Forward by Elaine Williams

    At four and a half years into my grief journey, I subconsciously decided I didn’t want to be sad, or emotionally held hostage anymore. One day I said to myself, “I don’t want to do this anymore. I am done with it.” I didn’t want the unexpected days where something sad and depressing pulled at me. I didn’t want to be an unknown quantity in my own life. I wished to be done with the grief so I could create a life of my own choosing.

    After making this subconscious and conscious decision, I discovered Greene’s Release. My goal was to be healed heart, mind and spirit — and healing came about with each release. The heaviness of grief has left and the painful sadness lifted. My life is my own creation, evolving each day into something new.

    We set ourselves on paths of our own choosing, and now I have set myself on a path – where I can show others there is a different way to get through grief other than trying to wait it out with time.

    I’ve learned it doesn’t have to take three or five or ten years of unhappy loneliness to get to a place of healing. There is life after loss, and Heal Your Pain is the beginning of your journey there — healing the Emotions of Grief.

    + Activity – A Letter to Friends and Family (Chapter 7)

    I want you to go to the store and purchase the loveliest notepaper that you can find and some stamps. Now make yourself a nice cup of tea or hot chocolate, perhaps to have with a chocolate cookie, and write a letter either on the computer or a notebook. This will be what you copy onto the notepaper.

    I want you to write a letter that is appropriate for your friends and family members who care about you. Tell them that you appreciate and thank them for their care, but you feel the need to take time out for yourself for a while – just for you.

    Tell them that you are, and will be okay, but need to separate for a while so you can process your loss, and hope they can understand. Explain that it is normal to be quiet, not feel sociable or talk normally (add your own behaviors), but you want to explain this to them so they will understand and not be offended or worried. Assure them that they will be the first to know when you are ready to come out of your cocoon.

    + Silence the Mind Chatter (Chapter 10)

    The grieving mind is neither calm nor rational, which is a natural consequence of the shock it has encountered.

    We do not want to use a band-aid to avoid your mind’s natural reactions, but instead we need to permanently change how your mind is acting and reacting. This chapter is written in detail so you can just follow along step-by-step without the need to think.

    When you complete this chapter you will be able to:

    • Recognize and not become overwhelmed by your mind’s worry, confusion and chatter
    • Understand and control your grief Mind Chatter
    • Silence nuisance Mind Chatter at will
    • Divide tasks into manageable to do categories
    • Complete tasks the easy way — without stress
    • Release your mind’s worry and stress

    The following 9 steps will help you gain back control of your mind, and help it calm and feel more confident that it will be okay. Your mind will be stimulated in a productive way. Only read the activity you are ready to do.

    + The Emotions of Grief (Chapter 11)

    Unresolved emotions are just like any other life situation where things are left hanging. Unfinished. Like a child with building blocks, the pain just keeps being added one upon the other, until it can grow so overwhelming you can’t seem to function or find joy in any aspect of your life.

    The benefit of releasing and therefore dealing with these Emotions of Grief, is that you can go on and be happy, resume your life, create something new out of the pain you once experienced. Of course we will feel pain over any of our losses, but to know there is a way to heal that pain, is a great gift all by itself. Why would anyone choose to stay in pain if they could take action to release and heal?

  6. 6
    + Grief Emotional Shocks (Chapter 18)

    The intensity, frequency and sheer number of Emotional Shocks that you have experienced since the loss of your loved one is overwhelming. You may experience repeated Emotional Shocks from one incident; during the lead up to it — during it — and then again afterwards.

    The trick is to realize that what you are feeling is an automatic emotional shock in response to a traumatic experience, and that you will be releasing it, so you will not have to keep feeling the ramifications of this event once it is finished.

    Example: You have decided that it is time to go through your loved one’s personal effects. The mere thought of doing so triggers an emotional shock (anxiety, tension, stress, tears). Then each time this task is thought about prior to actually undertaking it, triggers an additional emotional shock, which is compounded with the previous one.

    The emotions you feel during repeat Emotional Shocks are therefore intensified because they include the emotions from all of the Emotional Shocks you have experienced about this particular event.

    + Healing the Stress of Grief (Chapter 19)

    This section is about renewal after the tremendous physical, mental and emotional stress your entire being has endured.

    • You will reawaken your ability to feel alive again, learning how to enjoy the sensations of life.
    • You will remind every aspect of your being how to calm and relax, and come back into their natural state of balance.
    • You will reconnect with your natural life force energy and smile as you feel its revitalizing power surge through you.
    • You will take back control of how you are feeling each and every day, knowing that you are the one who decides.
    • You will share the gift of special surprises with yourself, to experience and feel every day.
    • You will smile as you feel inspired
