Counselling for grief - how to practice self-reflection safely

  • Safety requires that you must be present within yourself and your physical environment
  • Turn off your phone
  • Have silence
  • Sit
  • As a practice invite in a loving guiding energy
  • Breathe
  • Drink water and stay hydrated
  • Develop an attentive methodical approach and just be
  • Sit back in your chair, and ground through your feet and sit bones
  • Let your spine lengthen
  • Take a swallow, lick your lips and rest your tongue on the floor of your mouth, creating a conscious small space between the teeth of the upper and lower jaw
  • Invite yourself to relax
  • Follow your breath
  • Breathe in and out and soften your diaphragm
  • Be aware. Be present. Be grounded. 
  • Simply allow your emotions to play themselves out for you, projected onto your internal space like a movie on a screen. 
  • Watch. Witness. Evaluate anew.
  • Plan, create strategy, let go.

Begin anew.
