Kobe Bryant, along with his daughter and 7 others died tragically on January 26th.

Losing a loved one is never easy.

Grief is a natural process. Yet we have a tendency to suppress it and avoid feeling it. This only keeps you stuck in the pain.

We often think that if we feel the grief it will last forever. But no feelings last forever. All feelings when fully felt dissolve.

Or that if we feel the grief we will never survive.

So if you lost someone you love, give yourself full permission to feel the pain fully. It will break your heart open to a bigger dimension of love than you knew before.

Love is bigger than form.

When the person you love dies the form of the relationship has indeed changed but that doesn’t mean the love is gone. Nor does it mean they are no longer with you.

They may no longer be with you in physical form, but the real essence of who they are is spirit. And their spirit is beyond form which you are always connected to. The real relationship that you have with them is an inner connection and not even death can take that away.

Grieve but don’t wallow in grief forever. Honor your process.  Let them go with love and gratitude for the time that you did get to share together.

The best way that you can honor the life of your loved one who died isn’t in being miserable forever but living your life to the max without any regrets and loving as fully as possible. They are always smiling at you from the heavens.

Life is short my friends.

None of us know when that moment will come. So let those you love really know how much you REALLY love them.

The rest is just details.

Sending love to Kobe’s family and all involved and to any of you that may have lost a loved one recently.
