The Body Code Can Help You Deal with Grief
By Juanita Ecker
Losing someone you love is never easy. This past December I lost my cat, Oscar, when he transitioned to the other side. He was with us for 17 ½ years. I loved him so much and he loved me. He was my buddy and constant companion. The house felt empty without him. At times, the sadness and grief were overwhelming.
Losing a person or a pet you love is never easy. For some, the painful experience might cause them to decide that loving someone is really hard. Some might say, I don’t want to love again for when that person or pet leaves, it hurts too much. Or others might decide, I can’t do that grief thing again for I don’t want to ever feel that way again.
The painful emotions we experience when we lose someone we love can vary. Some experience a few strong emotions. Others experience a whole range of negative emotions. Some of the intense emotions people feel in the grieving process might include: heartache, confusion, sadness, loss, grief, despair, abandonment, lack of control, helplessness, hopelessness, dread, fear, shock or vulnerability. The list is endless.
After a friend has experienced a death in the family, you sometimes hear, Oh I’ve dealt with that. Many people tend to believe if they refuse to acknowledge these strong emotions, they have dealt with them. For most people, the norm is to pretend they feel OK, shut down and feel numb or push these strong emotions deep into their body. Many people don’t know how to process emotions and are afraid if we allow ourselves to feel what we are really feeling, we will fall into an abyss of sadness and never get out. We have never learned how to feel the negative emotions, process them and release them.
Even if you lost someone you loved a long time ago, the unresolved negative emotions could still be affecting you – years later. Eventually, these trapped emotions will affect the physical body. If you have lost someone you love, you might remember the stress or physical discomfort that followed the painful event. If the body was overwhelmed or in a weakened state, it would make it harder for the body to release the negative emotions you were experiencing. Then over time, these negative emotions can get stuck in the body. These unresolved emotions then cause physical symptoms and eventually can lead to illness or disease.
I will always miss my Oscar. Luckily, I was able to use the Body Code system to help me deal with my grief. A colleague did a few sessions on me. These sessions helped me release the sadness and physical discomfort I was feeling; the heaviness I felt is no longer there; and we have restored balance in my body.
