Show Notes

As we go through our lives we come face to face with loss and disappointments – friends come and go; loved ones move to the next plane of existence; we have our heart broken; we don’t get the job, promotion, or achieve the other milestones we believe we should have, and other emotional wounds.

These emotional hits are the traumas of daily life and they leave their marks on us.

We try to move forward and deal with them in the way we’ve been taught and enculturated to believe is the right way to deal with them.

Many of us have been taught that we must be tough and deal with these issues and the grief they bring on our own.

We may even have been led to believe that grieving is somehow wrong.

But grief is part of the normal processing of emotions.

And it’s human to need help to navigate the accumulated emotional traumas and process the grief we feel to move through the process effectively.

As we build our independent business as a coach, consultant, freelancer, or microfirm owner unresolved grief can lead to difficulties in moving forward.

That’s what today’s episode is all about.

My guest, Martina Meyer, is a life and relationship coach who considers herself as a personal trainer for your mind, heart, and soul. She helps others live a wholehearted, wholesome life full of joy and passion by navigating life transitions and healing unresolved grief.

Whether you’re mourning the loss of a relationship, a job, or some other life change, Martina helps you move through the incredibly human experience of grieving.

So listen in as she demystifies grief and grieving by revealing:

  • The myths associated with grieving
  • How following what we’ve been taught as children and through our conditioning keeps us from effectively grieving
  • The real secret to being strong
  • The connection between job loss and grief
  • How isolation only makes grief worse
  • The difference between guilt and shame
  • And How guilt and shame are involved in the grieving process

As always listen all the way to the end where I’ll share your cocktail exercise and action step for this episode.
