Resolving Grief A Model FromSteve and Connierae Andreas
The Project Results
Sense of Loss
Now think of Lady.
What it is that you feel was most valuable and feels like it has been lost?
Felt Sense of Presence
Think of someone you enjoy who is not here physically, but you experience a sense of felt presence or fullness when you think of them. What do you notice?
What do you feel?
Now, bring both images to mind at the same time.
How do these mental images differ? (Location, distance, color, motion, sound, clarity, etc.)
Do you have any objections to changing this experience of loss, so that you experience Lady as being a present resource?
Strengthening Heart Presence
Go inside and change the images of Lady so they more closely match the other images of felt presence.
Four life-affirming lessons from Lady that I’m reminded of each time I think of her.

Run Forward Run forward, the way will spring open to you Be destroyed, you'll be flooded with life Humble yourself, you'll grow greater than the world Yourself will be revealed to you, without you. ~ Jalal-ud-DinRumi
