Losing someone dear, it’s the the tough side of life. Why did this have to happen? What good does it do? If someone dies whom you love very much, the reality of it can be so difficult that you can’t deal with it. You have to close yourself off, put walls up; I’m not here! You locked your hart and decided to not let it hurt again
Life’s greatest blow
It is the greatest blow you can have. You dearly love someone and suddenly, they are gone. Just like that. Taken out of life or after an illness. Wham! You get an unprecedented blow and are a complete and total mess. Sometimes you continue to go through your daily life as if nothing has happened. And then the truth hits you; that cold, cruel truth slowly finds its way inside. The person you dearly loved is gone. Forever. It’s unavoidable. It’s rock hard.
Life is ruthless
The loss of someone dear to you confronts you in one fell swoop with the harsh reality of life. Life is limited. At some point, it stops. Learning to live with that is perhaps one of the greatest of life’s lessons. I couldn’t understand it for a long time: why do people have to die? Why do people have to deteriorate to finally die an undignified death? Why does the life just get taken from someone? In the spiritual and religious world there are answers to these questions. Still, these answers are never enough. They give little comfort. The harsh reality is that you have to miss your loved one. Never hear his/her voice again. Never touch each other again. Forever. Maybe you will be reunited after your death, but that doesn’t help you much now. It offers little consolation.
Emotions, which shouldn’t be there
The emotions that overwhelm most of us when a loved one passes away are many. Intense grief, but also frustration or rage. Or maybe feelings of guilt. “If only I had…”, because you think you might have prevented the death. Did you do everything possible? Or shame because you are relieved: “I am so glad that he is finally dead!”, for example, when you have taken care of someone for years and now finally experience freedom again. These emotions all play a role and are emotions we are not allowed to feel. If you show grief after 5 weeks, you can hear remarks like: “Life goes on”. An enormous feeling of being misunderstood and loneliness overwhelm you. The result is that you begin to suppress your emotions. You put up a mask. “Yes, everything’s fine with me!”
Open your locked heart
People are logical creatures. When you have lost someone you dearly loved, you close your heart off. It hurts so terribly and you feel so cheated by life! To never have to feel that way again, you make the decision: “I won’t open up my heart to others. The chance that I feel such pain again, is too big!” To protect yourself, you close off your heart and don’t allow such intense feelings of love any more. Now, when you do the MIR-Method, you will slowly but surely let go of this decision. The old pain will disappear and your ability to deeply love, will return!
The MIR-Method releases emotions
Emotions that are not supposed to be there, are released when you do the MIR-Method. That’s why you may experience grief, or anger. Without knowing where it is coming from, you have periods with intense feelings. The best thing you can do is surrender yourself to them. Feel your grief, give yourself the space to cry. If you’re angry, throw it out there! Hit a pillow or run up and down the stairs. Know that emotions want to be seen and heard. This is the only way to solve this. Then you are really working on dealing with them. The MIR-Method helps you to cope with the severe pain of this intense period. And, it will pass!
