I Love the rain. I always have. Maybe it’s because Water is my element. Maybe it’s because I’ve had sorrow in my Life and the rain is fresh and rejuvenating. Maybe it’s because Spring is my favorite season. Maybe it’s because I want to feel Pure and Clean.


I wish this was the type of rain I was talking about today, but what I’m talking about is the rain that pours from the Heart, the Soul, and the eyes. This rain is grief.


Grief is a very common process that we go through when we have had a loss or trauma in our Lives. This grieving process is a normal, natural process but it can become very difficult if we don’t accept it and allow ourselves to work through it. Oftentimes, we allow ourselves to grieve the loss of a Loved one but we forget to allow grief for Oneself, whether that loss comes in the form of death, separation, or REnewel – as is common whilst we evolve from negative emotions that may have kept us stuck.


We’ve all had trauma in our Lives at one point or another but the key to overcoming trauma is to get to the root of it and give permission for SELF to grieve - which can be the most difficult part.


We all have a Higher Self who is right on the other side of the veil, and who only has our individual best interests at Heart. When we deny ourselves the important process of grief, we truly become detached from ourselves and our emotions, so it’s beneficial on a Soul level to Allow the energetic process of grief to ensue if it needs to, because it’s not worth the trauma that’s caused by keeping it inside.


Let It Rain - Finding Gratitude in Grief

I AM Grateful for grief and its process because it allows me to know that I AM Alive and that I have Loved and been Loved.


This is the true nature of grief and sorrow. You have to know that you will grieve and be prepared for that so you can begin to Heal. This is a process that isn’t easy but will be made more difficult if you don’t allow yourself to go through it, open to the lesson of its experience. By not allowing yourself this necessary process, you will only prolong it.


It also helps to understand grief and what to expect of yourself during times of grief. When you are grieving loss, you will do so until you are finished and no one will know how long that will take, especially you. You can’t expect to just “be done” with it because expectation will only make the process harder. There will be times when you will feel as if you are okay, only to find 2 days later that this may not be the case, so it is helpful to recognize the process and persistence of grief regardless, of how much we want to wish it away.

    You are right, people don’t allow or misinterpret their own grief especially when it first rears it’s head as anger. It is often diverted and focused onto others, anyone who remotely irritates you becomes a ready victim for it. Thus we pass it on and create grief in others, very much like a disease.
