The Heart of Grief

Hospice patients come back to our care when being cut, burned, and poisoned. Surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation treatment are the normative methods of care for many of the patients who enter a life-threatening disease. Hospital workers members are trained to be aggressive about curative care.

Hospice care is a part of care whereby aggressive treatment is now not appropriate. Palliative care becomes the norm. Patients are probed physically, mentally, and emotionally. In several ways, patients could be reluctant to any type of care beyond the experiences that led to his/her doctor sharing that no additional can be done.

The purpose of this text is to claim that much more will be done. Our Doctors and Nurses are trained to assist patients receive medication that stabilizes and even diminishes pain and suffering physically. Social Workers are trained to assist patients and families deal with emotional, sensible, and legal issues surrounding loss and grief. Religious Counselors facilitate with the mixing of emotional well-being and a way of faith and hope beyond one's self-awareness.

There are 3 aspects of the grieving method I would like to mention during this transient article:


The guts of Care,

The center of Compassion, and

An Awakened Heart

Since I am a Non secular Counselor for Hospice Care, I will take a religious approach to grief care.



The heart of Care


The guts of care centers it's attention on the needs of the patient who is dying. Any try to move a patient off from his/her authentic character becomes a war of wills. As we have a tendency to listen and care for an individual simply as he/she is, we have a tendency to are allowing an individual to die the way he/she lived. Our ability to satisfy a person in unconditional love will put off the will to be fully known by the patient. Here, we have a tendency to are given opportunities to fulfill him/her in grace and mercy.

Patients are not a disease. Patients are awakening into soul. Mary was a sturdy-willed person who failed to want to die. She had a sturdy temperament. She had many roles she disbursed in life, and she wished to carry on to them all. She was a mother, friend, wife, among several other roles.

Concerning 2 weeks before Mary died, she shared with me that she became aware of two identities: one was her sturdy personality and the opposite was a presence of peace she may not explain. The nearer Mary came to her dying, the a lot of she may establish with wanting peace over suffering. This identity together with her soul became a lot of appealing to her than living in a body that was failing her. She was awakening into her authentic self.

The guts of Compassion


A dying patient offers up thus a lot of in their dying that he/she is tempted to carry on to what is left in their life. Even if holding on suggests that a lot of pain and suffering, some patients do try to try to to thus. As care givers, we tend to would like to be sensitive to the present facet of a patient's letting go method. A patient needs support and steerage to easily learn to maneuver from letting go (an act of the will) to letting be (obtaining into harmony with one's dying). A person providing care can enter into the heart of compassion by giving a patient space to enter into this process of moving from "letting go" to "letting be."

As an individual dies, their temperament will offer manner to their soul. In the process, a heart is broken. This desire to flee a painful body and embrace peace (one's authentic-self) is difficult by the need to remain with those he or she has loved. This engineered up tension creates a path one has to choose within them that transcends individual and collective aware awareness. In essence, this can be a matter of survival for the soul. This path moves an individual's soul forward.

Funeral services remind us, it is the soul of a individual that draw us to face death and not the deceased body. These services serve as a symbol of transition for the loved one who has died and those reflecting on the lifetime of the deceased. A relationship that once was created outside us and within the body of another person now not applies. Now, relationships with the deceased are internal and utterly among us creating an invisible bond forever linking our awareness to a spacial quality inside us drawing those left behind deeper into soul.

An Woke up Heart


An awakened heart knows there's a lot of to life than what appears on the surface.

Dying folks lead us to the current place where eternal relationships are cast into the deepest aspects of our nature. It's our nature to love and feel love. Even grief has the capability to deepen our sense of sacredness toward those we love.

A year ago, I gave a speak for the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization in Los Angeles, CA. I was gone regarding every week. When I came back, my youngest son gave me a big hug. I missed him and he missed me. I might feel him literally fill my heart with love. In a real means, my soul was touched by my son's soul. An awakened heart is aware of that this is the guts of relationships.

In the landscape of the soul, what matters in life IS NOT matter. When we have a tendency to begin to appear through our eyes and not with them, we tend to enter into a read of life from the attitude of soul. Insight, to determine from within, permits us to encounter death with hope, with faith, and with love.

As we tend to grow in our capability to work out from within, we have a tendency to enter into the heart of grief. This emergence into the nature of soul can sustain us through death and into life - eternal. May the Creator people all offer us strength for the journey.
