Moving through Loss Meditation

Moving through Loss Meditation

Grief is a reflection of love.  So the process of moving through loss involves releasing layers of grief, while opening to your love which never dies.  After pregnancy or infant loss, we may never be the same again.  Yet in moving through these experiences, we can become even more loving and compassionate. I hope these simple practices will support you in connecting with your love, self-compassion, and infinite capacity for healing. 

Before you begin, set yourself up comfortably and have tissues or a handkerchief nearby.  You may wish to light a candle, anoint yourself with essential oils and/ or have something warm and yummy to sip on. After the heart breathing and womb listening meditation, it can be supportive to journal about any messages you receive from your heart, body or womb space. 

You're not alone, and if you feel you’d benefit from personal support, you’re welcome to reach me by email at, or via my website.

With love & support,
