Healing loneliness from the inside out
Click here for Grounded Mind meditation on loneliness
So I woke to the news of the death of a very dear friend. It was not a shock as I had known for a few weeks that she was going to die and I am grateful to have spent a few precious hours with her last week.
But sadness filled my body and my heart as I sat in my garden enjoying the cool of the morning before the heat of the day set in.
I reached for my phone and while searching for a meditation to guide me in being with my loss I found a practice on loneliness and something in me told me that actually my feelings of loneliness overrode even my grief. So I gave this a go and want very much to share it with you.
I will spend more time, of course, honouring my dear friend but for now I’ll leave you with this simple approach to feeling and accepting loneliness as the first steps towards understanding and healing.
