    Grieving and Letting Go of Your Children

    Grieving and Letting Go of Your Children

    To grieve is not only about feeling sadness; it is also the process of letting go. We grieve when someone dies, but we also do it when a relationship dies, when someone stops being part of our life or gets away from it for some time. 
    Today's conversation might be as hard and painful as necessary. Grieving our relationship with our children is not an easy task. I know it by experience, and as we go through it, it will take us to places we don't want to go. Memories will pop up and make us feel excruciating pain. 
    This episode is directed to grieving moms, although dads, siblings, and the other family members can take notes and use this information to grow and heal. We'll delve into one of the hardest things I had to deal with myself, grieving and letting go of our children. Grieving the relationship we had with our kids, the changes, the loss of many things buried in the past. 
    We also talk about the two ways of letting go I use in my own practice, the crucial importance of letting shaming and blaming aside, and the greatest gift we can give to our children. We talk about the true meaning of unconditional love, Kübler-Ross' five stages of grief, and we remind ourselves that growth never stops, and neither should we.
    In This Episode, You Will Learn:
    It is not about ending a relationship; it is about redefining how we will navigate the new relationship (2:40)Setting healthy boundaries to protect ourselves (4:31)The two ways of letting go (5:33)The greatest gift we can give to our children (11:36)About the five stages of grief and how we go through them (16:58)The challenging task of allowing our children to be grown-ups (21:36)

    Diana Curtis | How to Live Live Victoriously

    Do you know where you want to be in your growth journey by the end of the week, the month, or the year? Setting clear expectations is the first step to succeed in any area of life, growth and self-development included. After we know exactly where we are going, we get to define how we'll walk through that path. 
    In today's episode, inspired by the apparition of one of heaven's representatives, we talk about living a victorious life, designing our life book, and connecting with ourselves at the deepest level. We pause for a moment and think about relationships; first, the relationship with ourselves, and then, we reflect on our relationship with others. I share one of the 12 categories in which I've designed my own life book, my 2022 game plan. 
    We also touch on the importance of being ok with feeling uncomfortable, being really clear and intentional about our expectations, and why we must assume total responsibility for our thoughts and actions. 
    In This Episode, You Will Learn:
    A beautiful white bird on the roof. A conversation with the one that speaks without words (1:51)What does it mean to live a victorious life (5:21)We tend to forget about the power of emotions (8:34)Stop hiding; let the creative you take control (12:10)One of the 12 categories I based my life book in.

    Diana Curtis | Learn How to Grieve, You Will Grieve Less

    Since we all will have to go through grief sooner or later, we should learn how to make our grieving processes easier. Learning how to grieve to suffer less is possible; it requires a reasonable effort, and the reward is enormous.
    In today's episode, we will effectively go through the process that will help us deal with our grief in a less painful and growth-promoting way. We start our journey by identifying the different parts of ourselves, what parts of our behavior are under their control, how they interact between them, and what we should focus on to get the best out of them. 
    We discuss the need to include a divine element into our grieving process, whether we call it God, essence, or spirit. We analyze the attacks suffered by Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson during her Supreme Court confirmation hearings. We look at the darkness, the unresolved pain coming from the Senators, and the light, the humanness glowing from Judge Jackson. In the end, we practice a five minutes meditation that will help you meet with yourself and receive the power of being anchored to the power of spirit. 
    In This Episode, You Will Learn:
    Grief is a holistic experience (1:57)Self-awareness is a must if we want to learn how to grieve (3:47)The importance of acknowledging our logical and divine self (7:25)How to invite our divinity into our grieving process (12:27)Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson's story (13:43)A meditation session to meet with ourselves (21:32)

    Stop Holding Back | Allow the Nature of Who You Are to Grow

    Stop Holding Back | Allow the Nature of Who You Are to Grow

    Inspired by the renewal Spring brings to life, I decided to take a pause, reflect, and celebrate the growth and progress I've made over the last months. One of the things I've been committed to during the previous year was being very intentional about my self-awareness, and I've noticed some changes I would like to share today.  
    In this episode, we delve into the three main areas of my self-awareness journey that I've noticed a fantastic evolution in, and I'm sure you will find it very useful in your own growth journey. We explore the importance (and the difficulty) of being present, experiencing a deeper connection with our feelings, and preventing our hearts from traveling back to painful memories or the future into the fields of uncertainty. We touch on the relieving sensation of experiencing more acceptance and surrendering than resisting and the peace of letting our true self reach the surface.
    In addition, we highlight the importance of actively practicing gratitude to keep us centered and aware of our efforts and their results. 
    In This Episode, You Will Learn:
    What I've learned about the relationship between my tendency to resist and the importance of acceptance (2:01)The importance of being aware of our two parts, the one that wants to heal and the part that is afraid to heal (4:42)About the importance of letting our true self reach the surface and take control (7:36)The vital importance of being present (despite how hard it might look) (10:53)We must create space to appreciate how far we've come (14:38)We are unstoppable when our mind is quiet (18:32)

    Shawn Costley | How to Be Number One in Your Life

    Shawn Costley | How to Be Number One in Your Life

    Today, we delve into the second part of my conversation with Shawn Costley. 
    This time, we touch on the need to create and honor a season to mourn and weep in our lives, the importance of taking the time to look inside of ourselves introspectively, aftercare, and the limitations the Black community imposes itself to deal with grief.  
    Shawn, kindly and generously, shared some painful personal experiences, and he described vividly how the power of community helped him navigate the excruciating pain of losing a child. We also talk about the familiar sensation of knowing something is not alright inside us and what we can do to change it. Shawn talked about the solo getaways he makes from time to time to examine himself, check on his thoughts and the stories in his head, and pivot as needed to achieve the goals he committed to. 
    Some Questions I Ask:
    What does dealing with the living look like for you, Shawn? (4:07)As a minister and a leader in your community, what have you noticed about people that you interact with? (11:08)What would be some examples for you when we know things are not right inside? (24:17)
    In This Episode, You Will Learn:
    What does aftercare require, according to Shawn (5:08)About Shawn's grief story and the loss of his son (13:33)How the programming we bring from our childhood affects our grieving abilities (22:34)We have to study ourselves to discover what triggers our pain (26:15)Social media opened the possibility to reconnect with lots of people, and that could not necessarily be a good thing (33:51)The importance of honoring our elders today before it is too late (37:12)

Diana’s “Growing Through Grief” podcast puts into perspective the human experience we all will be faced with. The death of her mother at the tender age of three was heartbreaking. She shares the decades long impact of her loss and how it took shape in her life. Simply remarkable and refreshing. Loved taking this journey with Diana. I’m looking forward to her next episodes.

Growing Through Grief!

Diana’s voice is so captivating and nurturing. She lost her mom at a very young age and through the pain she found her strength and another side of her she didn’t know existed. Diana is a true example of strength, love and light. Compelling and thought provoking. I am subscribing so that I won’t miss an episode.

Love it.
