Gentle Reader, blessings to you, your family and friends and colleagues. I pray you are well and feeling loved and cared for.
If you are going through a loss and feel broken and maybe even feeling“insignificant” today’s post is for you. It’s a short prayer, Reaching for Wholeness, taken from The Gentle Weapon” – Prayers for Everyday and Not-So-Everyday Moments by Rebbe Nachman of Breslov
Dealing with Grief Is Hard.
Yesterday, whilst visiting a dear friend, who is going through a loss, she whispered to me she “feels broken” and in need of something to stick her back together again and make her feel whole.”
As my friend continued to share her feelings, I was transported back in time to when my dear cousin Sherry and brother John died both unexpectedly and within 18 months of each other. I recall that broken fragmented sense of self, like I was living in fishbowl and couldn’t, wouldn’t allow anyone in to comfort and ease my pain.
Dealing with grief isn’t easy, you go through a whole range of emotions as your mind, body and spirit tries to find a way to adapt and adjust to your loss.
“Reaching for Wholeness”- is a prayer I recently read and which I would like to share with you, especially if you are mourning or feel “broken” in some way.
You can say this prayer quietly to yourself when you wake up or anytime during the day to lift your spirits and heal your fragmented soul.
“Reaching For Wholeness”
Healer of my body,
Healer of my soul,
Strengthen my ailing body
Soothe my aching heart;
Mend my shattered existence.
Make me whole.
Although short, I trust the simplicity of Reaching for Wholeness touches your heart and helps to fill the hole you feel inside.
Final Thoughts to Share
Sharing is caring. If you know someone, maybe a colleague, friend or relative who is mourning or feels lost and broken, send them this prayer and help to feel better again.
