What is grief?


Grief is a natural response to losing someone or something that’s important to you. You may feel a variety of emotions, like sadness or loneliness. And you might experience it for a number of different reasons. Maybe a loved one died, a relationship ended, or you lost your job. Other life changes, like chronic illness or a move to a new home, can also lead to grief.

Everyone grieves differently. But if you understand your emotions, take care of yourself, and seek support, you can heal.

The common disturbing feelings:

  • Guilt

  • Regret

  • Shock

  • Fear

  • Anger

  • Resentment

  • Abandonment

  • Overwhelm

  • Depression

  • Loneliness

These disturbing feelings and the related thoughts and beliefs will disrupt the grieving person’s ability to recover and heal.  Any death can trigger these limiting feelings in others.  And traumatic death caused by violence, accident or suicide are likely to cause a complex combination of difficult emotions.

How can EFT tapping help grief?

Tapping is important for processing grief because the more you tap, the more you are able to feel these intense sad emotions, acknowledge them and begin a process towards healing. Tapping can bring you hope. It can become your life-line that pulls you out of your pit of despair.

By using EFT and tapping phrases to express grief, sadness and all the associated thoughts and emotions can help give permission to fully express grief.

Expression of emotion is a natural, healthy response to losing someone who played an important role in your life.  Tapping cannot bypass grief and sadness. What it can do is clear the complicating and entangling emotions I’ve listed above and enable the natural, healthy grieving to happen with less impedance.
