There are many things that can trigger a spiritual awakening, loss being one of them. The loss doesn’t have to be a person (although it often is), it can be the loss of a partnership, loss of a job, loss of a way of life! Whatever has sent you on this journey, you’re not alone and in this episode we talk about all things relating to spiritual awakenings and how to navigate it. What has helped you when navigating your spiritual awakening?

Losing someone you love or a relationship you hoped for due to a breakup, divorce, or death triggers a grief response.

Episode 16 of the Making Sense radio show is all about grief & loss. How it’s a natural part of life and how processing some aspects of your loss by talking with loved ones, seeing a therapist, or simply reading loss quotes might help you gain a new perspective and can offer some comfort.

Each show will be an hour of sharing experiences, asking thought provoking questions, discussing tools and techniques to help you make sense of your life. It will be an upbeat, safe place to chat about all things that challenge us as humans in the 21st century.
Grief seems to be an unusual topic for happiness but yet it is an essential part of our life – where there is life, there is loss and with any loss comes grief.
Some of us will rush through grief whilst others get stuck in it. And in both cases we don’t appreciate the positive, healing aspects of that process.
In this episode, Shelley F. Knight, a chemotherapy and end of life nurse who is now a writer and the author of “Good Grief – The A-to-Z Approach of Modern-day Grief Healing” shares how to grieve well.
“When we talk about grief people think it’s the death of a loved one and it’s not just that – that’s bereavement. Grief is the loss of anything with which you have an emotional connection. It could be your health, a relationship, a dream, your self-confidence, or something else.”
And yes, grief can also be part of losing someone you love. It is there when you recognize that the plans you thought you had with this person are gone. Shelley mentions after her father died that she realized he would not be there to walk her down the aisle when she got married. Or to meet his grandchildren.
When we open up our definition of grief, we can see that we are all grieving something. That is part of the human condition. It’s awkward, and it is beautiful. We do not need to hide it, we need to normalize it.
The truth is that each day, we might be letting go of a plan, a dream, an idea. It might be about meeting a friend for lunch, it might be around losing a job, or perhaps you woke up ill.
At any given time each of us is grieving something.
