I so value being a part of your community - it so supports my longing to fully engage my Divine Nature”
Question: My question is about grief. From my perspective time moves on so there is always loss going on so I guess there could be grieving going on all the time. Is that true or is grief only in letting go of attachment. If I’m attached to ice cream then there is grieving when there’s no more ice cream.
Divine Mother: A child can be very full of grief losing the ice cream. You see the children crying, “More! More!”
First of all, I will discuss loss and gain. Loss of the ice cream cone is also a gain of something else – a gain of the next moment’s activity and then loss of that movement is the gain of the next activity. We will take about loss and gain first because whenever there is a loss there is a gain. Whenever there is a major loss in people’s lives there are also gains but these need to be better understood. The loss and gain of the way the universe balances itself. In terms of loss and gain, grief is a process of letting go and it isn’t always experienced as emotional upheaval or emotional reaction. So in the small child that doesn’t know that the gain of the next moment is beautiful it can be a big upheaval for a few minutes or half an hour. This is from the attachment. In the more mature life you have learned how to let go of a lot of attachment – so with the ice cream you probably weren’t attached in the first place – it was just an experience and so that was over and you move onto the next. There was a process of letting go – you let go of the ice cream but it wasn’t a huge emotional response. So, grief is letting go. When someone is extremely used to a particular way of life or a particular person or particular experience, the letting go of that can be emotional. The grief is usually associated with the emotional response. The expression of the grief is allowing the gain to come from that loss.
Do you understand that process better?
CP: Yes, grief is letting go and that puts grief in a very positive light and takes away the negative connotation of grief.
Divine Mother: A lot of the grief is held in the thyroid and thymus glands. If it is coming out as anxiety that means there is fear. Anxiety is fear. So what has happened is fear has been stirred up in your system and released and that is good. So, give it to me. Say, “Take this Mother.” And say, “I love you, Divine Mother.” Repeat that many times and your anxiety will disappear as I come forward. When you say, “I love you Mother,” I come forth, I enter your field and then I will deal with the anxiety.
I am happy that you have considered this subject today because there is much misunderstanding around all of this. Much pain has been generated around loss. Pain comes from holding back the emotions that are activated or refusing to acknowledge the loss. So this is why people who lose something are encouraged to talk about it and move through the feelings about it. I am encouraging this also but talking about it intellectually is not enough, you have to connect with the emotion of it and then there will be a true grief and a letting go which is what the grief is and a new love expanding in your heart. Being human is complicated. You have so many vibrations that respond to every thought, every thought.
These vibrations are always intertwined with each other so people get confused about what is really going on and they attach wrong labels to what is going on so that is why I am saying be in the heart. The heart is very honest. The mind is confused. Let the heart feed the truth to the mind and then you will understand all the good that comes out of every experience you have. The heart is simple and can very easily show you the truth of any situation you are experiencing or involved in. But believe it. The mind will disbelieve the heart and contradict it and fear will cloud everything.
So do whatever you can to stay in the heart where life is simple and love is powerful.
