Denial—Everything’s fine. This isn’t really happening.
Numbness—There’s no feeling, no hunger.
Disbelief—Acceptance is not an option.
Prayers are offered.
Wide-awake in the dead of night.
The sun comes up without your consent.
It’s About You:
- Have you experienced the unfathomable? Can you remember having experienced this level of pain? How did you move through it?
- Breathe into the pain of the present moment, and visualize yourself coming out the darkness.
- The CalmUp® Journey teaches that we need to acknowledge all parts of the process in order for us to heal. What specific parts of the process have been difficult?
