There’s something magical about seeing instant results.
Like cleaning your kitchen, finishing a book, getting a haircut. It feels good to complete things, like *phew,* relief, that's done.
But sometimes, even simple, mundane endings can trigger painful memories that may bring unresolved, incomplete losses up to the surface.
Being face to face with the daily, staggering. pandemic loss statistics, along with decades of unacknowledged societal losses, might have thrown you into a state of mourning and you may not even realize it.
Loss is really tough for your primitive, programmed, fear-based consciousness. In it's simplistic way, it defines loss as love is gone and will never return.
Reciting spiritual truths -- “When one door closes…” or "Everything happens for a reason" -- doesn't help.
Why? Loss symbolizes death to fear-based consciousness; spiritual bypassing only provides bandaids to its gushing wound.
A Higher Consciousness Truth is that everything is energy.
Science proves that energy can't be destroyed and doesn't go away. This means that loss actually doesn't exist. What looks like loss is really just a change in physical form.
More importantly: Loss is always an unrecognized, or a potential not-yet-received, gain.
Frequently, you discover what was gained by patiently trusting and not being attached to what needs to show up. Like roses bursting forth in spring after a drastic fall pruning; a better job arriving after being fired; an unexpected winfall after a financial setback; your soulmate appearing after a contentious divorce.
Sadly, more time is spent feeling victimized by the loss, with unwillingness to recognize the gain embodied in that new crop of roses.
In this physical reality, observing things coming and going, you live in constant anticipation of loss. You deperately try to prevent it, and feel shocked and victimized when it happens.
Adding that you've probably been taught to suppress the emotions that arrive from loss -- be strong, brave and courageous -- so you never fully complete the experience of loss.
So now, with constant losses occuring everywhere, those memories move forward in your subconscious mind and you wonder why you're crying at the drop of a hat.
Can't Fake This
As a current inhabitant of a physical body, loss is a core "life issue" you are here to resolve. That means trusting that, even when you aren't able to touch, see, hear and smell things, you can still experience them.
Because nothing ever really goes away, it just changes form.
So, during this time of great loss, give yourself some inner-reflection time. Feel your sadness. Get in touch with what that sadness is really about.
At the same time, trust the process, anticipate the unrecognized, or not-yet-manifested gains, without needing them to show up in a particular way.
And remember: Experiencing who you really are integrates a new kind of relationship with all that changes form.
Simultaneously, you'll have a new relationship with being here now.
