How do other empaths deal with grief ? I just lost someone who has only been in my life gor 7 months. We have had an on again off again relationship where each time he has ran away. Just over night disappeared from my life. We also have a spiritual bond that will always be there for every lifetime. Being with him gave me this feeling of total completeness. The love between us is so overwhelming, that is scares us both. I was in a 20 year marriage 3 years before this and that whole time i have never experienced a love like I do with him. I have had a lifetime of emotional hurt however i have always run from the hurt and buried the pain.. Found was to self mediate or cause physical pain until the emotional pain was not around.. even though it has always been a part of me I have ignored the empath side of me. Did even know that i was one until the end of December when after my therapist had give me the book about it but I didn't bother reading it for the past year an a half. He has been showing me the path but wanted me to do the work and knew when i was finally ready i would go through the book or other information. It wasn't until after meeting this guy and losing him the second time that i was ready to look.. Being conected to him allowed my soul to open up ready to listen. it wasn't until the end of feb that my soul was final ready to listen. I found out there are 3 part... my brain getting the information and understanding...my soul understanding.. and my gut instincts where i receive all the empath energy. Now that my soul is finally open I am really grasping all the energy not just negitive energy vibration. But I also know that I will never see this guy again.. The feeling and bond between us is just to much for him and his soul isn't ready to be open to us. Now I grieve, this emotional pain is like nothing I have ever felt. It is actually also a physical pain. my heart feels like it is having a heart attack. My gut is so upset that i can't hardly put food into it. I have momments where i can hardly breath.. Besides meditation how do others deal with emotional pain this strong? I am looking for positive ways to deal.. I don't want my old habits which are extreamly self destructive.. I want to accept and process this hurt for the first in my my life.
