Grief Reiki® Card Reading

Tags : 

The Grief Reiki® Card Deck was my way of trying to pull together comforting thoughts and words for a griever in a non-traditional format. The approach is to Pick-A-Card that jumps out at you. Whatever number comes into your head first. Or just go with your gut. Now read the message corresponding to the card you picked.

I have found we usually get the message we need to hear most.

Card Deck (Birthdays)

If you picked Card #1: Today’s message reminds you that is okay to still celebrate your loved one’s BIRTHDAY even after they are gone. Birthdays are meant to be celebrated. I am sure there are some people who think that is weird or morbid. Personally I think it is healthy and honest. Your loved one was with you for many years so remembering them  just seems like the right thing to do. Don’t dwell on the fact that they aren’t here anymore.  Don’t dwell on how and why they died. Just focus on all the great memories you had together. Get a Birthday cake. Open a bottle of champagne. Make a toast up to the heavens: “Happy Birthday. I haven’t forgotten you. I am celebrating you here on earth today and I know you are celebrating in Heaven!”

Card Deck (Laughter)

If you picked Card #2: Today’s message is a reminder to LAUGH even when you are grieving. I know that sounds easier said than done but laughter really is the best medicine. Someone once wrote that “Laughter is a way of lifting that heavy burden of loss and all facets of grief if only for a few minutes. It is a wonderful respite.”  Telling stories about our loved one helps us to cope. Telling funny stories is even better. The time Mom put her glasses in the refrigerator and we all spent hours looking for them. The time Uncle Bob didn’t hear what we said and brought “Cheetos” home from the grocery store instead of “cheese for the tacos”. Those tacos sure looked funny with Cheetos on them. What a laugh we all had. It is completely okay to laugh. In no way is it disrespectful. It helps us to heal. Our loved ones would want us to laugh. Dig deep inside your memory bank and find a few of those stories that will make you laugh. If this is too hard to do watch something funny instead. My loved one laughed every time those AFLAC commercials came on. We never thought it was very funny but we laughed because he laughed like he had just seen them for the first time. Now that he is gone any time those AFLAC commercials come on, I can’t help but laugh and think of him. Find a way to laugh today.

Card Deck (Signs)

If you picked Card #3: Today’s message is a reminder that SIGNS from our loved are all around us if we just ask for them. Our loved ones want to tell us they are okay. They don’t want us to be worried about them so they send us signs. Signs are everyone. It could be as simple as a butterfly or rainbow. It could be as complex as a realistic dream or a song that comes on the radio right at the exact moment you are thinking about them. It could be a birthdate that shows up repeatedly on the clock. These are not coincidences. My friend whose Father had passed away starting finding pennies everywhere she looked. Sometimes in the strangest of places. It made complete sense that her Father would send her pennies since he had been a CPA. What better sign for a CPA to give than leaving a penny! This card is asking you to look for those signs. When you receive them, always make sure to say “thank you”. Our loved ones want us to know they are around so there are always more where that came from!

Sending you love, comfort and peace.
