Moving Through Grief with Creativity

Karah Pino
What really comes to me is this deep sense of grief, the grieving that we’re all going through of the loss of life during this pandemic, and the loss of the way things were. And I feel like that’s something that as we move through this process, it’s important to acknowledge what we’ve lost in it, so that we can move forward and I was wondering what the guides would have to say about some techniques we might use for grieving or what that feeling and experience is on the human plane.

Maia Rose
So they’re saying “creativity” – drawing pictures, and writing poems. Right?  Like, sometimes people think that they have to write pretty poems.  And that has its place, but so does grieving poems and anger poems and whatever emotion that’s there. And this is big, you know, it’s a big – a lot of emotions.  Then when those emotions of the pandemic and so forth are released, then we’re going to go into that time, (which has already started, and will be more so in 2022 and 2023,) where more and more people will be going towards the indigenous/ancient ways of life. And there will be a recognition that that’s the only way we’re going to survive.

You know, if we don’t honor nature, if we don’t get along with each other, all the things like pandemics and climate change and wrong doers and pitting groups of people against each other…you know, if we allow that kind of disruption to happen… it’s kind of sink or swim time.

Karah Pino 
I do feel like sometimes I can see through the grief into a much more joyous and harmonious life. But the grief is so heavy and there is a lot of anger with it, too. Because people are so angry about, you know, how things should have been, or whether or not it’s real, or if only so-and-so did this or whatever.  Everyone is angry about the fact that we’re in this situation of great change, but it seems like it’s kind of like fighting just to fight, rather than when I think of the grieving process, when it’s healthy, is when we all can be in recognition that we’re in a changed world and that things are currently hard. And for a lot of people, they’ve been really hard with death or loss of jobs or not being able to get food in some parts of the world. There’s just so much suffering that’s also being compounded by the way that the world is changing.  And that just feels so heavy and I don’t know what to do to make it better.

The Sacred Water Spiral

Krystal Kelley 
I had something come to me about this water spiral. It’s that we’re supposed to use the water to flush away the pain and grief and that our bodies don’t have to be vessels for the pain or grief. It’s just a conduit, so the water can spiral through us and we can feel better. I don’t know. That’s what came to me.

Maia Rose 
Yes. Yes, very valid.

Karah Pino 
It makes it bigger. So it’s not just us in our personal lives, but collectively and also a recognition about the way that the planet has been suffering for so many centuries of abuse.

Maia Rose 
Right.

Karah Pino 
And the indigenous/ancient peoples, as the human manifestation of the way of living that we have been disregarding.

Maia Rose 
Right.  So, they’re saying, find a way to acknowledge your grief.   Find other people who are there with you, supporting the grieving, so that it will loosen up.  It’s harder for people to let things go before their feelings have been validated. If people are still in denial, if people are thinking that things will go back to the way they were, that’s denial. And it’s also perpetuating the abuse if you treat a whole category of people like they’re not relevant. You know people on the reservations don’t have what they need. That’s not what we want to go back to.

Why would we want to go back to harming people? Why would we want to go back to being racist? You know, all those various things that need to be cleaned up. We need to go forward. And people can long for the past, but if we really look at it, what was in the past? And how for a small percentage of people, maybe that was good for them, but it wasn’t good for the earth and it wasn’t good for all the varied populations on the Earth.

So we need to go forward.  And as we draw pictures, write poems, do music, we can share that with each other. And then people can say, “Yes, I know how you feel. I feel that too.”  Things like that.

Karah Pino 
It makes me feel like I should be able to validate the anger that people are feeling more and understand the way that their lives have changed has harmed them and that it’s been hard. So, that really helps me to have a greater compassion for people who are, maybe, being angry and it doesn’t make sense, but it really does make sense that they’re suffering, too.

Engaging Children in the Grieving Process

Maia Rose 
Yes. And the children, we can involve the children in that, too. You don’t have to force it to come up, but if it comes up, we can show them a way.  We can validate their feelings and show them ways to release it.

Karah Pino 
I really like the idea of the water spiral as an image, and something that can be physically experienced in a bath or in a lake. I’m wondering what other kinds of things would be good as well.

Maia Rose 
Well, all the things that we were talking about that use our senses.

Karah Pino 
So being in nature?

Maia Rose 
Yes, listening to music, tasting herbs and spices, dancing.  Dancing and rhythm are cross-cultural. Almost every people or tribe on the earth has done dancing and rhythm. And especially dancing barefoot, on Mother Earth, she really likes that. And that’s very grounding too.

And the Spirit guides are saying that to keep in mind that as difficult as some people’s lives are, not only now, but people who were traumatized in childhood or are in a war-torn country now, that all of those souls agreed.  They made a soul map of what they wanted to learn in this lifetime and they agreed to it.  What the spirit guides have told me more than once is that I (Maia) agreed, as a lightworker, to take on a chunk of the darkness on Earth. And in healing it in myself, I’m helping to heal it in the world. And that’s true of all. 

At first, I just got that part and then I realized that’s true of all healing.  Whatever anybody heals, it helps to heal all the rest of the people because we’re all connected. Not just the people, but nature and stars and it’s all a solid system and we’re all connected. And so, I’ve had – I Maia – have had several people that died in my life. And because I also do mediumship, what I would get is that those people, Carol Hiltner being one of them, those people decided to go to the spirit world because they felt like they could do better work from the other side. So, some people only agreed to a short life. And now that they’re on the other side, they’re fine. They love us. They send us love.

We have free will about incarnating, when and where and how, and we have free will about leaving to go back to the spirit world. And some people will say things like, “Well, why did God take my child in that car accident?” And God didn’t take that child, that child decided that it was time for them to leave. And they left. And maybe they left via a car accident to try to show people how to take better care while driving. Something like that. Does that make sense to you?

Karah Pino 
It does and I’m thinking about all the people who’ve left the earth this last year and a half, almost two years. And how much work they can do from there now to help us come to a better way of living.

Maia Rose 
Yes. A better understanding.

 The Rose that Blooms from Tears

Krystal Kelley 
So while we were all talking, I always doodle. And it started out as a spiral that turned into a rose. And then the rose has a stem and that went into the ground and it had roots and then the Rose was crying. And the tears went into the ground and into the roots. So the grief of the rose is what kept it alive.

Maia Rose 
Oh! And that’s my middle name rose.

Karah Pino 
I’m thinking that should be the cover art for this beginning of the series.

Krystal Kelley 
Karah, I’ll send it to you and then you can decide. Maybe you can digitize it because it’s a doodle.

Karah Pino 
I love that.

Maia Rose 
Yeah. I do too, because it just fits with the reading.  It’s sort of saying, “All is not lost.”  You know, even though this is a hard time and sad because people are recognizing all the lies that have been going on, we have things like the #MeToo movement and Standing Rock and even here with the orcas, Save the Orcas, and things like that.   All these different things show that people have a greater hope. You will have a greater idea of what’s going on. And if the rose is rooted, then when the tears fall, it can blossom. It’s a transformation.

Krystal Kelley 
And we need the earth to transform, because the rose can’t grow up by itself.

Maia Rose 
And Mother Earth literally makes our body. Mother Earth is made up of water and soil and stuff. And so if we’re vegetarian and we just eat plants or if we’re vegetarian and partially a meat eater, well, so the plants grow in the soil and take nutrients from the soil and if we eat some meat, then the meat ate plants and there’s water from the stream that we drink and it creates our bodies.  For example, the things that our mother ate nurture us and feed us, when we’re in the womb.  So we are made out of the earth, literally.

Karah Pino 
AHO!

Krystal Kelley 
Namaste.

Maia Rose 
Mother Earth is good.

Karah Pino 
Our Sustainer, our great Sustainer.

Maia Rose 
Yes. So we need to honor her.

Karah Pino   
I’m excited to see the different ways that we come to that conclusion around the world in this coming year, and find ways to honor Mother Earth, wherever we are.

Maia Rose   
Yeah, and that goes back to the Year of the Indigenous/Ancient Way.  Because that’s what indigenous people do. They have great honor for Mother Earth.

Closing and farewell

Maia Rose 
So, we release the spirit guides for now. Knowing they will return whenever we need them. We express our gratitude to them for their assistance today.

Karah Pino  
Beautiful. Thank you so much, Maia. Thank you to all the guides who joined us today.

Maia Rose  
Yes. And they say, “Remember to ask for help!”

Karah Pino  
Oh, yes, they’re there for us!

Maia Rose   
Yes. But because they’re divine beings, they can’t override our free will. So they’re eagerly waiting for us to ask them for help, so then they can get involved.
