As promised in my previous post, DE Reports: Interview with Ann Allen of Heal Your Grief – Heal Your Life, I would let you all know when Ann is fully up and running with her new business, Heal Your Grief-Heal Your Life, LLC. Below is a copy of her business card, followed by the latest email newsletter I received from her. You can send her an email at firstname.lastname@example.org to request to be added to the list if you wish. At this time, Ann is not going to publicize via social media or set up a website. She is hoping to grow her business by word of mouth and wants to help those that feel compelled to reach out to her. Ann is located in Vancouver, Washington and can be reached by phone at 360-721-3433 to set up a consultation. Ann has been in the medical field for over 40 years and is an RN by trade. Her new venture focuses her gifts as a Certified Grief Recovery Specialist, Reiki Master/Teacher and if you are open to it Ann can do intuitive readings/coaching as well. Ann is a very soothing presence as you will see in the her newsletter below:
Hello good people,
As the cycle of the year turns towards the end, it is natural to find ourselves reflecting or reminiscing about the things that have affected us over the past few months. For many of us, it brings up very painful memories related to this time of year and reminds us of our sadness.
Many of us have lost very precious people, pets or things that we cherish and most of us simply do not know what to do with all the memories and feelings that cascade into our lives as these occasions present themselves, when there is so much activity and so many demands on us and we have to be “present” for others.
We miss the ones/things we have lost and it is the most natural thing in the world to want to share these times with them.
These are the times when we are acutely aware of the things that we wish had been different, better or more in our relationship/s and we remember the hopes, dreams and expectations we had for them and us.
These are also the times when we sadly try to handle these days alone, by keeping these thoughts and feelings to ourselves.
Here are some things that may help you:
- First of all, find yourself a friend or confidant that you can trust with your feelings and who won’t try to “fix” you. You are not broken; you are having a normal and natural reaction to your loss.
- Honor the person, pet or thing you have lost – Say their name out loud.
- Tell your friend or confidant, what and how you really feel – be emotionally honest.
I honor Princess – my little, darling, love.
I will not be able to share Thanksgiving or Christmas or New Year with her for the first time in 18 years and it makes me so very sad. I love you and miss you my little Bubba Love.
OK; you next:
I wish/will not/want to/cannot/…….
If you need someone to honor your loved one with, hit “reply all” so we can be a witness for you or you can call me: 360 721 3433 or email me and I will gladly be a witness for you.
It is hard to remember or even believe that we are not alone at this time of the year, but we are not. There is at least one person on this planet that loves and cares about you. Remember that and cherish it.
We sometimes have to reach out beyond that thing called pride and ask for help. I have come to learn over the years that that is actually a sign of strength (took me long enough).
We are all connected one way or the other and we are not alone.
I wish you all
Good Health, Happiness and Prosperity for the coming year and always.
Sincerely and very warmly,
