Grief isn’t easily explained nor planned, and the worst part is we aren’t ever really given the tools to help us work through it.

Know that you don’t have to do this alone, because there are self-care tools here to help.

Grief is an emotion that is governed by our metal element and is associated with our lungs and large intestine.

What does this mean for our experience ?

How can we tell if we’re carrying grief ? It can show up as slow or fast bowel movements, tight hamstrings, lower back stiffness, heaviness in the lungs and chest, coughing and excess mucous, just to name a few.

Our body is always giving us clues, and it’s our responsibility to pay attention to it and to take time to process our emotions. We need to allow time for self care that frees the stresses from our whole beings. Otherwise, the whispers will go to yelling, turning to disease.

Feel free to reach out for support with processing your emotions and releasing your stress. May this year of 2021 be the year you have a deeper connection to your whole being and experience the very best.
