We all know it’s going to happen someday, but not all of us are prepared to deal with it when it does happen. Losing a loved one is inevitable in the course of our life. The closer we have been, and the longer we have been close to that person, the more painful the loss of that person will be for us.
Most reactions to the pain that comes with this kind of loss resulting from the breaking up of a relationship to the passing of loved ones, are normal. We feel sadness, grief and hurt, and even anger. We become confused not knowing why it has happened and whether there’s anything we could’ve done differently, even though we know it’s too late and there’s really nothing we can do about it.
Most people get through these tough times with the support of family and friends, and as time goes by, they slowly start to accept the reality of what has happened. Eventually, they develop a sense of “closure” and though the “wound” might still be there, ready to “tear” if someone should “evoke it”, they are able to pick them up and move on.
For some people, however, the recovery takes much longer and is far more difficult to even get underway. Overwhelmed by grief, these people become unable to get a handle on their feelings, find it difficult, or even impossible, to go back to work or to resume their routines or to cope with the demands of life. As they remain stuck in this state, it places a great strain on their health, well-being, performance and relationships with other people. Some people turn to negative habits like smoking too much, eating too much, drinking too much, etc. to distract themselves from the feeling of grief.
A Look at Grief
MentalHelp.net defines grief as the process or emotions that we experience when our important relationships are significantly interrupted or ended. Bereavement is related to the grieving process, with some specifically relating it to the death of a loved one.
Experts have defined varying numbers of the stages of grief, which may not necessarily occur in the order shown below. These stages include:
- Denial, which is a way of protecting oneself emotionally from the shock
- Bargaining, which is an expression of a need to regain control of the situation
- Anger, which may be directed at the person lost or the people involved
- Depression, which may include mourning, worrying and a feeling of helplessness
- Acceptance, which is characterised by calm and withdrawal from dwelling on the event
It is important to note that it is during the depression stage that support becomes most crucial, and that acceptance is not to be equated with happiness or contentment.
Hypnotherapy Helps during This Difficult Time
With the guidance of an experienced and well-trained consulting hypnotist, a person experiencing the loss of a loved one will be able to unlock and release the feeling of grief from the subconscious mind that is causing the pain.
The techniques used in hypnotherapy can help grieving people change the way they perceive their loss. Grief, anger and sadness can be replaced with feelings of calm, confidence and being in control. The memories of the event remain, but they will be less painful and evoke less intense emotions. The person reclaims their freedom from grief and takes back control of their life.
