In this the final installment of the 7 part series, Traumatic Brain Injury and the Grieving Process, I wanted to share a few of the personal awakenings that I have experienced through being present in my own process of grieving.
As I have grieved, I have grown in the awareness of my reality. In the process of becoming aware, I have grown to love and respect myself. I have been able to address, confront and understand the impact of my denial.
I discovered that the effect of my denial, anger and resentments produced a “spiritual and emotional plaque” that insidiously attached itself to the channels of my creative capacity, which in effect blocked the flow of my spiritual and emotional energy.
I found that as I made peace with other people and with myself the spiritual and emotional energy that I once used to manage my denial, anger and resentments became available to empower my process. Consequently, I have been able to channel my spiritual and emotional energy in ways to enhance my gifts, talents, and abilities in ways that work for me. By addressing my denial, anger, and resentments I have been able to flush my previously blocked channels so that my spiritual and emotional energy can flow freely.
I have been able to examine the roots of the anger that I had toward other people and myself. I have been able to identify the resentments that I harbored against other people and myself.
In my experience, I have found that by addressing the distractions of my denial, anger, and resentments I have been able to keep the focus on what is my business. I have learned to be responsible to rather than for other people and their choices. Consequently, I have been able to keep my side of the street clean in my relationships. I have also discovered the power of choice. Consequently, I no longer need to believe that I am a victim of my circumstances. Instead, I am able to trust the process, a loving God and myself.
I have been able to learn valuable lessons. I have been able to take advantage of opportunities. I have been able to consider the possibilities. I have been empowered to pursue my destiny.
