Living with a Traumatic Brain Injury and the Process of Grieving — Action — Part 7 Video Presentation
Posted by Second Chance to Live on December 22, 2013
Hello and welcome back to Second Chance to Live my friend. In today’s article I am going to introduce the 7th and final part of the article series, Living with a Traumatic Brain Injury and the Process of Grieving. In my experience I had to move through the grieving process to get to a place of acceptance before I could take action.
The action to learn to thrive with in my reality — as an individual living with the affects of a traumatic brain injury and an invisible disability. By getting into action I was able to flush the clog that blocked my creative energy, and allowed me to discover what I could do despite my limitations and deficits because of my traumatic brain injury and an invisible disability.
If you have not watched Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4, Part 5 and Part 6 of this video series, I would encourage you to do so as each Part builds upon the previous Part. To watch each of these 6 Parts please click on each of these links: Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4, Part 5 and Part 6. By watching each part you will understand my logic and how I arrived at the need to take action, as I speak to in Part 7 of this series.
Below I have included and excerpt of Part 7:
“In this the final installment of the 7 part series, Traumatic Brain Injury and the Grieving Process I wanted to share a few of the personal awakenings that I have experienced through being present in my own process of grieving. As I have grieved, I have grown in the awareness of my reality. In the process of becoming aware, I have grown to love and respect myself. I have been able to address, confront and understand the impact of my denial.
I discovered that the effect of my denial, anger and resentments produced a spiritual and emotional plaque that attached itself to the channels of my creative capacity, which in effect blocked the flow of my spiritual and emotional energy.
I found that as I made peace with other people and with myself the spiritual and emotional energy that I once used to manage my denial, anger and resentments became available to empower my process. Consequently, I have been able to channel my spiritual and emotional energy in ways to enhance my gifts, talents and abilities in ways that work for me. By addressing my denial, anger and resentments I have been able to flush my previously blocked channels so that my spiritual and emotional energy can flow freely.”
