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.
All of us carry grief and emotional shocks and traumas to some degree. Emotional traumas don’t have to be huge earth shattering events to affect us. We are all sensitive emotional, vibrational beings even if we don’t realise it! We carry grief and trauma in our bodies as well as our minds. If we don’t release and heal it it will affect our physical health as well as our emotional and mental health.
There are times in life when we are brought to our knees! The emotional pain can be so overwhelming we feel we just can’t go on. Letting go of grief can be a huge challenge which can haunt us for years. It has a huge impact on our lives and our health.
This healing guided meditation starts where you are, in the depth of the darkness. Taking gentle, tiny, baby steps it leads you through releasing the painful emotions to seeing the possibility of light at the end of the tunnel.

“The most amazing guided meditation I have come across! Wow, “What Your Body Wants to Hear Release Grief & Trauma” is the most amazing guided meditation I have come across! There are so many out there but this really asks the most profound questions … making you really look into your thoughts and feelings”. A.Y.
“A lot of the pain in my neck and at the base of my skull had GONE! And that night I slept soundly which was wonderful as the previous two nights I’d hardly slept due to the agonising pain. For two days over the weekend just gone, I was in agony, I had severe pain in both sides of my neck and at the base of my skull, I thought it was due to a flare up of my fibromyalgia. So I put hot packs on my neck and took the max. dose of painkillers. I began to think I would have to see my chiropractor again!
Anyway like I told you in my last email I’d downloaded your meditations and it was that same night that I was guided to listen to your meditation on Grief & Trauma. I started to play it and as it continued I burst into tears and just kept sobbing….What a release!
I knew I was letting go of the Grief & Trauma that had been building up since my beloved husband passed over two years previous. And the things you mentioned on the meditation I really identified with and I was a little taken aback as I hadn’t realised I was holding onto such beliefs! And recently I’d left a job where I’d been bullied and was still holding onto a lot of resentment and unforgiveness towards my ex-colleagues and over the last few years many of the jobs I have undertaken, had left me feeling disappointed, hurt and lacking in confidence. So I think some of these emotions were also released! After the tears I felt as though a weight had lifted from me and a lot of the pain in my neck and at the base of my skull had GONE! And that night I slept soundly which was wonderful as the previous two nights I’d hardly slept due to the agonising pain.So THANKS AGAIN Barbara!! I will continue to listen to your Grief & Trauma meditation (& your other meditations). Love,Mary.
“Have been listening to the Grief & Trauma meditation to help after the death of my husband. I feel a real difference after just a few listens, my breathing has slowed down and the palpitations have lessened dramatically. I also feel more relaxed and less “weepy”. K.R.
