    Close-Up Talk Radio spotlights Bereavement Life Coaching by Shirley

    in Motivation

    Topeka, KS – We will all lose a loved one at some point in our lives, and yet we’re never truly prepared for it. Bereavement, the period of grief and mourning after the death of a loved one, can be a transformative experience. Unfortunately, many people struggle with bereavement because our cultural training is to ignore, deny, and avoid whatever is unpleasant. We live in a society that has sought to protect us from sadness. 


    Shirley Bradley is the founder of Bereavement Life Coaching by Shirley, which offers compassionate companioning for individuals struggling with the loss of a loved one.


    “The first thing a client does when they come to see me is that they apologize for their emotions,” says Shirley. "I allow my clients to be authentically emotional by creating a safe environment for them to to express their sorrow. It’s essential to be able to honor their story and validate their emotions."


    According to Shirley, grief is not a mental health problem; it’s something everyone experiences, but they don’t have to do it alone. Having experienced grief herself, she has developed a more spiritual approach to recovery.


    “I went deeply into my sorrow and I allowed the healing to happen on its own,” recalls Shirley. “So my focus is to allow my clients to grieve so we can work toward a new beginning, a new life, a new hope and a new joy.”


    You have to create a new life in order to heal and recover. Shirley’s clients learn to utilize new skills and new ways of coping. They’re not trying to get over the pain, but rather learning how to work through the pain.


    “My hope is that I empower and inspire my clients to live their highest vision and create a joyful, fulfilling life,” says Shirley. “I give as much of myself as I can because we’re walking a very sacred journey together."

    Bereavement Unravelled: Completing Unfinished Business When Someone Dies

    in Psychology

    Bereavement Unravelled: Death is as old as life and so is bereavement. Whether a death is sudden or expected, the process of coming to terms with it is challenging. Themes of anger, loss, sadness and resentment about the actual death as well as a wide range of feelings about the person who died can all surface in waves. Old skeletons pertaining to the relationship, family, history and oneself can also lead to confusion, disillusionment and challenges with surviving loved ones. The stages of grieving are complicated. However, the process also creates an opportunity to find new hope, strength and enlightenment in areas that were previously cast in shadow. In this powerful episode of Intuitive Transformation Radio, Matthew Engel and Joy Barker will discuss the process of grieving and rebirth in the aftermath of the loss of a loved one.


    Matthew Engel is a psychotherapist, hypnotherapist, past life regression therapist and intuitive counselor who has supported thousands of people in transforming their lives for 18 years. He is also the host of Intuitive Transformation Radio. For more info and to sign up for his popular newsletter, please visit: www.matthewengel.com

    Rev. Terri Daniel - "The Evolution of Forgiveness"

    in Spirituality

    This month, Suzane welcomes back special guest, Rev. Terri Daniel.


    Terri Daniel is an ordained interfaith minister, clinical chaplain and intuitive counselor who assists dying and grieving individuals to discover a more spiritually spacious understanding of death and beyond.


    Her unique perspective on birth, death and the journey of the soul helps the dying and the living find meaning and healing through meditative and ritual practices that open a conduit to other dimensions. Her unique form of "radical mysticism" incorporates elements of Buddhism, Shamanism, ancient pagan practices, gnostic Christianity and other spiritual traditions to break down limiting beliefs about forgiveness, divine judgment and negative experience. Terri replaces these beliefs with an empowering vision of a co-created universe where there are no victims or perpetrators, only souls seeking expansion and awareness.


    Terri is the author of three books on death and the afterlife: A Swan in Heaven: Conversations Between Two Worlds; Embracing Death: A New Look at Grief, Gratitude and God; and Turning the Corner on Grief Street: How Trauma and Loss Can Transform Us.


    Terri is also the founder and president of the Afterlife Education Foundation and producer of the annual Afterlife Awareness Conference. She will be presenting a workshop at Kripalu Center for Yoga & Health at the end of this month.
