Today we’re talking about understanding and navigating grief.

Since we’ve been on a bit of a hiatus, I want to give you all a warm welcome back to Change It Up Radio! In this new Spring season of the show, we are coming to you with a fresh perspective, and our theme is going to be “A Season of Grief.”

Every show in this season will be focused on a person or group of people who experienced some form of loss in their lives and were able to overcome it. The reality is that loss is a huge global issue. Yet, just because we’ve all experienced it to some degree, that doesn’t mean we really know what to do with it or how to help someone else who is struggling.

Grief is a complex, multifaceted emotion that can arise from various types of loss and change. By understanding the different aspects of grief and acknowledging the emotions that come with it, we can better support ourselves and others during difficult times.

In this episode of Change It Up Radio, I discuss grief from various angles, touching on what grief is, how it manifests, and how to cope with it when it affects ourselves or those around us.

It is essential to recognize and understand that grief is a natural response to loss and change. When faced with grief, people should allow themselves to express their emotions honestly and authentically. This approach can help us all to navigate our feelings and work through the grieving process.

So many of us really don’t clearly understand what grief is, or we’re not sure what to do with it once we have it.” – Paula Shaw

Paula Shaw was Certified by the Grief Recovery Institute’s Program through Loyola Marymount University as a Grief Recovery Specialist. She has been helping grieving people for over 28 years, using mind/body techniques to guide them through the discomfort of change and challenge, eliminating stress, depression, anxiety, weight gain, relationship distress, career challenges, a lack of energy, and self-destructive, addictive behavior.

These tools bypass the conscious mind–which is often rendered useless when emotions overwhelm us–and they work directly with the subconscious mind to shift problematic thinking, feelings, and behaviors that can result. Through these methods, it is possible to feel a sense of power and control in your life in a very short time.

Paula helps individuals regain successful lives by quickly identifying and eliminating self-sabotaging behavior and limiting beliefs by uncovering and addressing their core issues. Working with a wide variety of healing modalities, she provides her clients with the most effective processes for their specific needs. Because every person has unique challenges, this customized approach is critical to their success.

Paula is also the author of Chakras, the Magnificent Seven, which is a primer to the Chakra System and how to use it for greater health and healing, Grief… When Will This Pain Ever End?, which looks at loss and grief and provides practical, simple articles, processes, and exercises to help a grieving person move through their pain and back into joyful living, and her latest book, Saying the Right Thing When You Don’t Know What to Say, which is a guide to navigating difficult conversations that provides five steps to creating helpful, healing conversations.

If you are experiencing issues that feel overwhelming and you think that you might need help to overcome them, Paula offers a complimentary 20-minute consult that you can book on her website, or contact her at (858)-480-9234.
