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.

If you picked Card #1: Today’s message reminds you not to go through grief alone but to draw strength from your friends. Society has conditioned us to “Grieve Alone” when in reality this is the worst thing we could do. We have also been taught not to ask for help or family and friends will think we are weak. Again, this is furthest from the truth. Family and friends want to help us but we have to reach out and ask for that help. They cannot read our minds so if we wait for them to offer it may never happen. Ask for what you need.  Don’t try and go through it alone.

If you picked Card #2: Today’s message is a reminder to REST when you are grieving. I know that sounds easier said than done. If you are like me when I was grieving, you can’t even sleep or think about sleeping right now. But resting doesn’t mean you have to sleep for long periods of time. Sometimes just taking a 5-10 minute cat nap can leave you refreshed. It is so important that you try to do this since it is common to be more prone to accidents and injuries when we are grieving. This is because our minds, bodies and spirits are on an emotional roller coaster. Make the time to rest when you can. It’s especially important right now.

If you picked Card #3: Today’s message is a reminder that it is perfectly normal to feel extreme sadness when you are grieving. Since Society seems to have put a time-constraint on how “long” we should grieve, we often feel pressure to not be sad. We force that sadness down until we feel like exploding. Most places of employment don’t help either by only giving us 3-5 days bereavement time. How could anyone “feel better” after such a short period of time? Expressing your sadness is normal part of being human. Don’t plaster that fake smile on your face or say you are “doing fine” when you aren’t. This card reminds you to share your sadness. It will help you move through your grief. It will also help those around know that expressing sadness is a normal and natural reaction to loss.

Grief Reiki® Card Reading

Here is the Grief Reiki® Card Reading for December. The Grief Reiki® Card Reading 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 (Angels)

If you picked Card #1: Today’s message reminds you that Archangels Michael and Azrael are always there for you when you are grieving. Archangel Michael is is the supreme protector who guards against all effects of fear. He also guides our next step and helps us make important life changes. If you are having a tough time while you are grieving, call upon Archangel Michael to protect and guide you.  Known as a grief counselor, Archangel Azrael, lovingly consoles those who have lost a loved one and helps them heal from grief. If your heart is heavy with grief, call upon Azrael for healing and support. These Archangels want to help you with whatever you need. Don’t forget to call upon them!

Card Deck (Hope)

If you picked Card #2: Today’s message is a reminder that even though you are going through a difficult time in your life right now, there is always hope. Hope is listening to beautiful music. Hope is getting signs from your loved ones. Hope is recognizing synchronicities. Hope is feeling your loved ones next to you. Hope is believing in a better tomorrow. Hope is having a better tomorrow. Hope is feeling your heart begin to heal. Two wonderful quotes about hope are: “Hope is being able to see that there is light despite all of the darkness” by Desmond Tutu; and “Hope is important because it can make the present moment less difficult to bear. If we believe that tomorrow will be better, we can bear a hardship today” from Thich Nhat Hanh. This card is a reminder that when we finally emerge from tragedy, it is amazing how much hope we can find around us. Don’t give up hope!

Card Deck (Time)

If you picked Card #3: Today’s message is a reminder that there is no timeline for grief. How many times have we all heard “time heals” when we are grieving? How many of you are still grieving after losing someone 5, 10 or 20 years ago? Does it hurt any less? Do you miss that person any less? Probably not. For some, the pain may get even worse. This card reminds you that there is no timeline for grief. It is a reminder you are on a grief journey that is yours alone.  Some days will be good. Some days will be tough. Don’t be hard on yourself. Accept the ups and downs. This is completely normal. Grief is something that you do at your own pace and in your own time. Don’t let anyone tell you any differently!

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!
