Protect Your Lungs – Deal With Your Grief
The emotion associated with our lungs is grief. Contributing factors to lung problems can be issues such as having difficulty standing up for yourself, constantly needing support or approval, feeling weepy, sad, or tired, unexpressed grief and unshed tears.
We are all dealing with current, known and acknowledged grief at the moment. We see the entire human family being affected and life as we know it, changed forever.
Some people are suffering horrendous personal loss. Even if we haven’t suffered personally, we are all grieving the loss of a way of life. This grief is perfectly valid and most of us will go through the recognised phases of grief. You can ease and perhaps even speed up getting through this grief by dealing with it consciously rather than trying to ignore or suppress it. Our Affirmations for Grief & Trauma (Recommended as one of the best in grief affirmations by ObitTree) may help you do this.
But there is also hidden and often forgotten grief that most (if not all) of us are carrying – generational grief. The ovum that made you, existed in your grandmother’s body. You have a direct, biological connection three generations back. Think about that for a moment. Think about what your grandmother’s generation experienced! Wars, dictatorships, famines, empires, carnage on such vast scales that we can’t even comprehend. If just a tiny modicum of that grief found its way into us, that’s potentially a huge amount of hidden grief.
Even if you don’t adhere to the idea of generational grief in physical form, Dr Gabor Maté teaches how we pass our emotional traumas and grief on through our behaviour.
The grief and pain we see around us, triggers the grief and pain we are holding, maybe even trying to suppress inside us.
I don’t write any of this to scare you. That is VERY last thing I want to do!! Just be aware, that if you are struggling with grief or sadness you can’t explain, these are some avenues you might want to explore.
So protect your lungs, deal consciously and deliberately with your (or your ancestor’s) grief. Our free Healing Affirmations For Grief & Trauma. might help you identify some of your feelings and help you clear them.
