In their 7th episode, Samantha & Maria discuss the topic of grief & how it relates to our overall health (physical, mental & emotional), as well as the profound effects it has on how we show up in our day to day lives. As energy healers, Maria & Sam see a great deal of unresolved grief energies stuck in people's bodies. Maria recently became certified in a powerful modality called The Grief Recovery Method offered through the Grief Recovery Institute, which further expanded her inner & understanding of the process of grief- even though she has an extensive background in hospice nursing & end-of-life care. Spirit has been guiding her to add grief recovery into her personal life, as well as to her coaching services- because this is needed NOW more than ever for the entire human collective. While she's been getting strong intuitive messages about grief for the past 6-months, Samantha was getting strong messages about forgiveness- which synchronistically goes hand in hand with the grieving process. They both offer their perspectives & experiences with these topics & also offer tools on how to help YOU feel more empowered in feeling, acknowledging & sharing your emotions with others. Humanity has been programmed to run from, hide from, numb out to & deny our emotions, yet our Souls incarnated to experience these very energies. When we lie to ourselves about how we're feeling & what we're thinking, we lie to others & create very IN-authentic connections. This eventually leads to DIS-eases within the physical body. Our emotions (whether we deem them to be good or bad), are merely messengers & teachers that want a VOICE. By giving them a voice, they naturally begin to move through & out of us. Grief has many voices- many emotions & many lessons for us. It is described as the conflicting feelings caused by the end of, or change in a familiar pattern of behavior per The Grief Recovery Handbook (John W. James & Russell Friedman). This means that we have experienced grief a MULTITUDE of times throughout our lives- it's not just losing a loved one to death. The human collective will continue to be faced with life-altering experiences as the process of evolution marches on. It is time to have true self-compassion as we navigate these very turbulent times. To stay connected with Sam & Maria please see all of our channels here: https://linktr.ee/Sam.Maria.BranchesLLC.
