Grief is synonyms with regret?  This is what I found in my research – a sense of loss and longing for someone or something gone.  A feeling of disappointment or distress about something that one wishes to be different.

We all have regrets, should have, could have, maybe a do-over.  Being in the present moment is all we ever have but one can remain stuck in the pas or the future robbing us of what is happening NOW.  For example I can still be playing out a scenario that happened 30 years ago.  Maybe being pissed off to this day of what occurred and has nothing to do with what is happening in this moment but the “sting” remains.  The key is to acknowledge the regret and feel into the underlying energy.  It could be anger, rage, fear or sadness that has never been embraced for what it was at the time.  These are human emotions and as human beings we tend to cover them up and or suppress them but nevertheless they remain stuck in our bodies taking on a life of their own.  This is turn can create density.  We all have our stories and what we want to do is to embrace our feelings in any given moment without negating or suppressing them.  This is as important as washing are hands.  We have been taught to believe anger and sadness is bad when in reality it is a blessing.  This is what connects us and it is an opportunity for the divine to embrace us.  When we begin to feel all there is to feel and embrace our humanity life unfolds in a miraculous way.  We are found through are humanity.  This is where love and compassion can be found.
