This short 18 minute guided meditation is one of my favorite tools for acknowledging and attending to challenging emotions in grief. Utilizing a mindful acronym - RAIN - which stands for Recognize, Allow, Investigate, and Not Identify With or Nurture - you are invited to practice moment to moment mindful awareness of emotions in the body.
Press play and be enveloped in the soothing pink noise and rainfall recording that accompanies the meditation. These soft, soothing tones (created by Christopher Sousa) offer a serene backdrop for mindful awareness as you practice letting these emotions pass through, like the changing weather.
Incorporate this meditation into your daily routine and watch as it helps you make room for more spaciousness in your grief. Embrace the opportunity to reconnect with the flow of a rainstorm, and let the gentle guidance be your pathway to inner peace.
YOU are a good grief doula when you take time to ground yourself, witness the emotions that are arising in grief, and allow these emotions to be present - if only for a moment.
