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: 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.

What happens to you when your pet dies?
The death of a beloved pet can mean saying goodby to a best friend. Not only do you miss the companionship but this may have been your one source of unconditional and nonjudgemental love.
Our pets come to symbolize many things to each of us. To Judy Cameron, co-host, her dogs represented her children. To Judy Helm Wright, co-host, her dog filled an empty nest. Imagine how a pet may reflect the ideal mate or parent or companion--ever faithful, loyal and welcoming us daily. Can you see in your mind's eye how strong this bond may be?
We know how you feel, because we have felt the same way. We understand your pain and acknowledge your sorrow.
Give Yourself time to grieve
As coaches, authors and pet parents, we truly do understand your grief. We recognize that you do not need anyone else's approval to mourn the loss of your pet, nor do you need to justify your feelings to others. But, we offer a "Safe Place" to share your stories and be able to be open about your feelings right now.
