Hi, Suzanne, I
always love all your articles and may I ask you a question?
How can one recover from a grief over a loss and you donít
even know what type of loss it is?
I am in my 50ís and have grieved over a ďlossĒ all
my life. I have
searched and searched, but I could never find out what it was.
Itís so weird I keep loosing things, even

answering your own question.
It is yourself you are loosing and desire to find; that

There are many people who can guide you
on your journey. Have
you ever considered psychotherapy?
This is a good place to start.
Also some people who have spent years I therapy, respond
to out-of-the-mainstream methods of healing.
There are many of the methods in the links on my website.
I cannot recommend what is right for you, however; you
will have to make that call.
The Grief Recovery Handbook, which I
recommended in the last newsletter,
has a couple of interesting exercises that might help you see
some of the things that can give us more problems than we might
think. Things that
look small at the time do affect us and add up. You also may be very sensitive and take on the grief of
another; such as something from your parents.
Helpful teachers, authors, etc. guide
us as we build awareness of self.
Sometimes we need a safe environment so our unconscious
will speak to us. I
believe things are revealed when the riming is right.
