Tears carry creative power…In herbal folklore, tears are used as a binder, to secure elements, unite ideas, join souls…In fairy tales, tears change people, remind them of what is important and save their very souls…Tears are a river that take you somewhere. Weeping creates a river around the boat that carries your soul-life. Tears lift the boat off the rocks, off dry ground, carrying it downriver to some place new, some place better.
~ Clarissa Pinkola Estes/Women Who Run With the Wolves
Do you long to feel
Your grief can take you there. Most of us experienced early on that it wasn’t safe to feel, so we slowly began to close off parts of ourselves. As unwanted feelings arose, we learned to turn to food, alcohol, sex, or other diversions to mask our feelings. As a result, we became angry, depressed, numb, and no longer able to open to living life fully.
I’ve learned from personal experience that feelings of loss don’t go away they just go deeper. Sometimes unattended feelings manifest as disease. It’s clear this old model of stuffing our loss and grief doesn’t work.
