Grief. It’s almost a taboo word in Western society. And yet, it’s a universal human experience and comes in many forms: the loss of a marriage or job, when a cherished friend (human or pet), an aunt or uncle, sibling, Mom or Dad cross the Veil. But if your child takes his or her last breath before you do, you’re thrown into a world that’s unimaginable and indescribable. If you’re a Mom that has a child in Spirit, this podcast is for you. With Grace, hope, a little tough love, and even some wit and humor along the way, this podcast will honor where you are. Join me, Lori Latimer, Intuitive Soul Navigator, as my guests and I share insights, tools, and techniques to assist you on your grief journey. Every Tuesday, we’ll journey into all the dark places of grief, shining a light on them so you can integrate them rather than avoid them. The Grief With Grace podcast will inspire you to find Moments Of Joy In the Everyday so you can continue to live your life after the unimaginable has happened, and in doing so, honor your precious child’s life and legacy.

    Navigating the Seasons Of Life… and Grief

    Navigating the Seasons Of Life… and Grief

    We all go through "seasons" of our lives, just like the the weather and the seasons on the calendar. When we've experienced loss or trauma, we navigate new seasons, and they don't follow any dates on a calendar.

    In this episode I talk about:


    The various seasons we experienceWhat can cause them to changeHow we're affected by seasons and dates on the calendarCollective vs. personal shifts in energyThe misperception many people have when they repeat seasonsWhat to do when you feel you're backslidingHow and why to define "happiness"I also shared about my upcoming Black Friday Special for 2021! Be sure you're signed up for my email newsletter so you get advance notice, before the offer goes public. You can sign up here to be sure you receive the special newsletter.

    Beautifully Broken with Melissa Oatman

    Beautifully Broken with Melissa Oatman

    This was a fun interview, but one where we also went very deep. I did some business coaching with Melissa about a year ago after finding her podcast. Melissa is a beautiful Soul with a different type of grief journey. She’s a Mom who went through a divorce a few years ago which is a grief journey of its own. Then, a couple of years ago, her former husband, her children’s father, left this life of his own choosing. Listen in as Melissa explains how she got that news, where she was, who was with her at the time, and so much more, including:


    How Melissa's childhood led to issues with codependency and people pleasingHow her divorce led to her first awakeningHow a breakup from a subsequent relationship led to her second awakeningHer path from being a teacher, to becoming a Reiki practitioner, writing a book and starting a podcastHow she’s helping her children navigate the death of their fatherThe physical changes that happen in our brain when we experience traumaHow she initially tried to hide her grief from her children after their father’s death - and what she later realized about thatHow learning to “stuff” our feelings in childhood can affect us into adulthoodSomething that makes grief so difficult - and what’s required in the processWhy grace is so important on your grief journeyWhy Melissa used laughter in her book, Beautifully BrokenHow I used “Sex and the City” to heal after my divorceThe various ways guilt affects our griefWhy you don’t want to “ugly cry” at a drag showWhat it means to “Awaken Your Inner Awesomeness”
    You can find Melissa on Instagram or on her website.
