When Tragedy Strikes: Tips for Healing from Grief

"When Tragedy Strikes: Tips for Healing from Grief"Every day, countless people suffer from grief, whether from tragic acts of violence, the loss of a loved one or other circumstances that shatter dreams. I have Dr. Bradley Nelson, a 27-year veteran holistic physician who has trained thousands of people worldwide in emotional healing techniques, to share how people can cope with grief and heal. Contact me for interview requests and read on for details.

Overcoming the Persistent Pain of Grief

When tragedy strikes, whether on a personal level or an entire community, grief is a natural response. However grief is among very intense emotions that can become “trapped” and cause long-term mental, emotional and physical difficulties, Dr. Nelson says. This is among reasons why one in 10 Americans takes medication for depression and anxiety, conditions that are rooted in trapped emotions such as grief, loneliness and sadness.

“During times when you are feeling an intense emotion, the energy of that emotion can become lodged in your body. These residual emotions can lead to illness years after the events that caused them. When an emotion becomes trapped in the body, a person will feel that emotion more easily under similar circumstances that created that emotion in the first place.”

Dr. Nelson shares how people can free themselves of emotional baggage, including grief, to live happier, healthier lives. Here are three simple steps that can help in healing:

  • Reach out and take action to help others. That takes the focus away from you and enables you to turn that lens around so it is not pointed at you and all your trouble; instead it is pointed at somebody else who needs you.
  • Practice choosing your emotions. Most people have this mistaken belief that our emotions choose us; that we are at the mercy of whatever emotions we tend to start feeling. But the reality of it is, no matter what the circumstance is, we always choose our own emotions. We can choose our feelings. It just takes practice.”
  • Count your blessings. Make a list every day of the things in your life that are actually good. It may seem like everything is bad in your life and you don’t have any good things going on, but if you think about it you may.

“Life is filled with blessings to be grateful for, difficulties to overcome, opportunities to explore, decisions to make, and grief and suffering at times,” Dr. Nelson says. “All of these things give us experience. They provide ways for us to exercise faith, gain knowledge and develop love. All of the human family is connected and everything that happens to one of us affects everyone to one degree or another. Through our experiences we have the opportunity to strengthen our connection by developing understanding and compassion for one another.”
