Grieving Is A Major Part of Healing From Abuse

To facilitate more healing on my part and sometimes just out of curiosity, I read a lot of blogs every week.  On Twitter, I found a blog article on grieving that is one of the best articles on explaining grief that I have read in a long time.  This article is entitled Grief Has A Mind of Its Own posted on soulseeds: SEED THE CHANGE blog.  The link for this article is here:

This blog article was written by Ian Lawton who calls himself a "Spiritual teacher of inner wisdom, divine love, deeper consciousness, oneness, peace, and abundance."  Thank you Ian for sharing your thoughts on grieving.

Grief is such a big part of healing from childhood abuse.  Every time a loss of any kind happens in your life, you have to grieve the loss.  As a child of incest, I had a lot of grieving to do when I started healing. 

Another new friend that I have recently met through Twitter is Nancy Fox-Kilgore, M. S.   Nancy's blog is called Sibling Abuse & Bullies which you will find at the following link:

http://siblingbullies.com/blog/

Nancy's is a fairly new blog in the healing child abuse community.  I know that Nancy would love it if you would leave a comment on any of her blog articles. I hope that you will encourage her to continue writing and sharing her journey so that others can also start to heal by reading her words.  Nancy is an expert on Bullying and Sibling Abuse.  If you are ever looking for a guest speaker on either of these two topics, Nancy is the person to contact.  Nancy is a national speaker for the United States Department of Justice.  She speaks on Post Traumatic Stress Disorder in rape and incest victims.  I wanted to introduce you to Nancy today rather than waiting for you to meet her in my next blog article.  My next blog article that will be posted here on Spiritual Journey Of A Lightworker will be a Guest Interview with Nancy Fox-Kilgore.  Look for the post on either the coming Monday or Tuesday.  In the meantime, go to Nancy's blog Sibling Abuse & Bullies and become aquainted with Nancy and her mission to protect children from bullying and sibling abuse.  You will learn some things that you didn't know about the two forms of abuse.

Ian, you are very welcome for the link to your article on grieving. (((Hugs))) back to you. Your article on grief will be helpful to so many survivors who have been told to just get over it. Grief does takes its own time. I thank you for the wonderful messages that you share on your blog.

Hey Pat, appreciated your comment to me. Do not worry, I am not offended. Honesty and realness is all I ask. Blessings to you dear one.

I often forget about the grief being part of the healing process. And PTSD too. Looking forward to your interview.

thank you Pat for these two links! I have checked out both blogs and they both look great!

I am especially inspired by the work Nancy has done for the department of justice! I would love to get involved in something like that in my country. Can i ask in your interview, if you could ask how she got into this role?

Also i was hoping you might consider adding my blog to your list of blogs about healing from sexual abuse? Anyone i can help with my experience, is very important to me!

Thanks Pat! Keep writing and inspiring!

Colleen, thank you. I am looking forward to Nancy's written interview too. I should have it posted sometime on Tuesday.

MissPinks, you are very welcome for these 2 links. I am glad that you find them useful. Nancy and I have already worked out the questions and her answers for the written interview. I just need to find the time to post it on my blog. I know that Nancy would be very pleased if you would go to her blog and leave a comment asking her to answer your question.

I will definitely add your blog to my blog role. Thank you for asking me to do that. I just got back home from a weekend spent with family in 2 other states which meant lots of time on the road traveling so give me a day or two to catch up on all of my paperwork and I will post the link to your blog. I will notify you when it it posted.

Thank you. I will keep on writing. I hope to inspire others to break their own silence of abuse.
