Healing Troubled Hearts - Self-care Tips

Transitioning Through Change or Loss

  • Keep It Simple Sweetie:  Stay in the eternal now—this is where the Holy Spirit dwells.  It’s easy to get lost in worries about the future or regrets of the past.   Most of us are rarely in the present, yet this moment is all we have, and in this moment, the Holy Spirit is with us, the Great Consoler, the Lord, the giver of Life. 

  • Develop the Witness:  in this present moment, hand-in-hand with the Holy Spirit, develop an awareness of your inner process, of the feelings and thoughts that constantly come and go, and are ever-changing.   Let this be a comfort, and know that it is our resistance that makes us struggle—there’s truth in the adage “what we resist, persists”. 

  • Don’t be caught off guard by Grief Bursts:  These are heightened periods of sadness that seem overwhelming.  Even long after loss, something as simple as a sound, a smell, or a phrase that reminds you of your loved one can bring on a burst of feelings.  Allow yourself to experience these with patience and self-care, then return, again and again and again, to the indwelling Holy Spirit. 

  • Listen to Music:  Music can relax, soothe and comfort—consider making a recording of your favorite songs to uplift and console.  Visualize any overwhelming feelings being carried by the music, and feel yourself surrounded by nurturing sounds that you enjoy. 

  • Pray:  Studies show that prayer heals, even if the person being prayed for doesn’t know that they are receiving prayer.  Prayer also communicates your inner thoughts and feelings, and as such, becomes a form of mourning.  Consider getting on a prayer list for continuing support and healing as well.  

  • Learn Something New:  Sometimes we feel stuck, and our lives seem routine and joyless.  Is there anything you want to learn but have not tried?   A new hobby?  Another language?  An art project?  Any physical exercise or sport that appeals?   Something new often brings fresh insights and enthusiasm for life, especially when we feel stuck and lifeless. 

Today:  Try something new as you journey through change and/or loss.   Make a commitment to life, to the Holy Spirit, to new ways of seeing and being, only for this moment.  Then, moment-by-moment, your heart and life knit together in new ways, through His love and Healing Grace.
