Grief. It’s almost a taboo word in Western society. And yet, it’s a universal human experience and comes in many forms: the loss of a marriage or job, when a cherished friend (human or pet), an aunt or uncle, sibling, Mom or Dad cross the Veil. But if your child takes his or her last breath before you do, you’re thrown into a world that’s unimaginable and indescribable. If you’re a Mom that has a child in Spirit, this podcast is for you. With Grace, hope, a little tough love, and even some wit and humor along the way, this podcast will honor where you are. Join me, Lori Latimer, Intuitive Soul Navigator, as my guests and I share insights, tools, and techniques to assist you on your grief journey. Every Tuesday, we’ll journey into all the dark places of grief, shining a light on them so you can integrate them rather than avoid them. The Grief With Grace podcast will inspire you to find Moments Of Joy In the Everyday so you can continue to live your life after the unimaginable has happened, and in doing so, honor your precious child’s life and legacy.

What do you do when you keep repeating the same patterns over and over again? Some people never realize they're doing it, so they keep repeating them - and then wonder why their lives aren't what they want. Others, like my guest on this episode, stop, pause, and look at their part in the patterns. And then they do the deep healing work.Christine Jewell realized she repeated patterns in two-year cycles. When she'd had enough of those cycles, she went inward and discovered the part she played in the cycles she'd experienced. As you listen to this episode, I invite you to see where you're repeating patterns in your life. Christine shares very openly about her journey, including:Her “two-year cycle” of building things up and burning them downThe point she realized she was tired of hustling and forcing things in her life What she asked God to do to help her that began her journey of healing and processing years of griefWhy you must do the inner work first before anything in your outer world will changeWhat she learned about rushing through to the next things vs. preparing for the right thingWhy it's important to feel the loss and move through itHow divorce is like the death of a dreamThe importance of rebuilding trust in a relationship after its been broken and a way to do thatThe love affair you must haveThe realization she had on a solo bike rideThe growth we experience when we become comfortable doing things aloneWhere some of the most amazing relationships in her life came fromThe one thing you must do to see anything change in your life after a loss of any kindThe gift and beauty of the overwhelm of griefThe part we play in the dance of Universal support that's available to all of usThe journal Christine recommends everyone should keepWhy movement is so important on our healing journeyHow Christine has seen emotions physically manifest in our bodies in her work through the yearsThe importance of releasing and expressing joy as well as griefThings we can do when we're in the depths of griefHow the structure of nature can support usWhat can happen when we get stuck in a phase of angerWhy it's so important to connect to living thingsThe magic we can experience when we open up to what exists beyond what we can see with our physical eyesThe myth of being an empath or highly sensitiveAre you adding to or taking from yourself and life with what you choose to consumeWhy what you consume may be compromising your ability to heal and to tune into your intuitionThe importance of learning to receive when you're used to giving all the timeSome of the beliefs women hold that don't serve us One of the biggest things that prevents women from asking for what we needHow we can allow grace to support us on our life journeyConnect with Christine on Instagram or her website.My September calendar is open for Illumination Readings.

PTSD is a term some people throw around lightly. I studied it in depth when I majored in Psychology in college. Many people associate it with the after affects of war, but it can happen to people who have suffered other traumas as well, including sexual trauma and unexpected loss. One is not "better" or "worse" than another. PTSD can present in many different ways.This week's guest is on a lifelong journey with PTSD after serving in the United States Army after 9/11. Doing two tours of duty in Iraq, she experienced things most of us never will. Her courage and resilience is inspiring. In this episode, she shares from a very vulnerable space about her experience during her time in the Army and her life since then.Her experience with “hidden” PTSDHow her desire and knowing she was here to make a difference led her to enlist in the U.S. Army after 9/11Her experience of taking over the airport in Baghdad and what it was like being on the ground during thatWhy her second tour of duty during peacekeeping was worse than the first deploymentWhat happened when she went to Germany on her way back to Iraq after her weddingHer initial reaction to being told she had PTSDHow her husband's PTSD affected her lifeWhat she was looking for when she went from the Army to the “Mouse House”What she did to avoid facing her trauma and PTSDHow her PTSD was different from her former husband's PTSD (this is important because PTSD does present differently for people)The things she did to “manage” her PTSD (you might recognize some of these in yourself)What helped calm down some of her PTSD reactionsWhen she finally realized the scope of her PTSDHow she turned the symptoms of her PTSD into her superpower - and into a powerful businessHow she changed things that worked against her into things that work for herThe importance of communication and expectations when navigating trauma and PTSDThe parenting style she created that honors her children and her PTSDWhat it's like to be in a “PTSD couple”How the Veterans' organization, Team Red, White & Blue, helped her after she and her husband separated (an organization available for civilians as well as former military members)What running a marathon did for her mentallyThe importance of accountability in her healing journeyHow baby steps have helped her reach her goalsHer experiences with panic attacks from the PTSDMy vulnerable sharing of an experience I had that brought on an panic attack - and how my late son, Greg, showed me he was supporting me through itThe importance of having people and a community to support you and honor where you are on your healing journeyHow Heather has been able to help friends who have had difficult experiencesHow she's created a business that works for her on her healing journeyWhy she believes we should be unapologetic on our healing journeyYou can find Heather on Facebook and on her website.

So many women are turning to ceremonies and rituals in ways we haven't for centuries. This week's guest and her sister have created a beautiful company to support anyone looking for a unique way to honor a loved one in Spirit, whether the loss is recent or long past.Jess Wertz, and her sister Amanda Wertz McClellan founded Spirit Vessel. Jess and I had a magical conversation and covered so many things about the beauty they've brought to a topic people frequently ignore, until they're faced with the most difficult of life's decisions. In this episode, Jess and I talk about:The beginnings of Jess's journey into artWhat led her to opening up more conversation around death, rituals and ceremoniesThe importance of creating personalized rituals and ceremonies that honor the emotions of griefHow nature helped her heal from a breakupThe impact conversations with friends and family navigating grief had on the creation of Spirit VesselHow my Mom's preplanning helped me in the aftermath of her sudden return to SpiritThe stark difference when my son returned to Spirit with having no plans in place (this underscores the importance of preplanning at any age)Why we need rites of passage in the course of our livesHow ritual and ceremony allow us to come back and hold space for our grief and emotionsHow preplanning allows us to be more present with our grief and with others in times of lossThe way in which ceremony and ritual allows the paradox of joy and grief to co-existWhy it's so important to move our emotions out of our heads and into our bodiesHow the original intention and vision of Spirit Vessel changed due to the pandemicWhy the idea of rewriting the ideas and stories of how things should look around grief and loss is very intriguing and excitingHow the traditional ways of experiencing death and grief are disrespectful and uninvitingThe Ceremony Guidebook Jess created that you can use at any time to honor your loved one and your griefHow you can work with Spirit Vessel in creating your own unique ceremonies and ritualsWhy ceremony and ritual helps us avoid the isolation that's so prevalent in modern societyThe passage Jess read from her beautiful Ceremony Guidebook on Opening To ForgivenessPlease be sure to visit their website (this is an affiliate link) and follow them on Instagram!

The past two years have thrown the world in a state of collective fear, trauma, and grief. With the current conflict between Russia and Ukraine, that cycle is continuing.This week I'm joined by a very special lady who happens to be one of my closest and dearest friends. I first met Haumea Hanakahi over 10 years ago when we were in an online program together. We later met in person at a live event and have since traveled to some of the most beautiful places in the world together.Haumea is a highly gifted psychic, intuitive, and mystic. Her passion is evolving consciousness on Earth and helping to make the invisible… visible.

In 2008 when I left my last marriage, I realized I needed to make some big changes in my life so I didn't continue repeating patterns that didn't serve me. Long before the “word of the year” was a thing on the Internet, I began creating a Theme for my life for the upcoming year. In this episode, I take you through the process I've used since the end of 2008 to reflect on the year that's ending, and intentionally create what I want in my life in the upcoming year. This is the process that helped me create a life I loved for several years, before my son went to Spirit in 2019 and Covid changed life in 2020. It's also the process I've used to heal on a quantum level since Greg left this life.I created a beautiful PDF to assist you in this process. If you aren't on my email list, send me an email at email@example.com and I'll personally send you the PDF. If you are on my email list at the time this episode goes live in December 2021, you'll automatically receive the guide in my weekly newsletter.This process is timeless. You can use it at the end of any year, or at any time during the year. It's lovely to do it on your birthday, or any other significant day throughout the year.I'd love to hear how this process is for you. Screenshot this episode and post it to your IG or Facebook stories, and tag me in it so I'll get a notification. Or send me an email and let me know. I wish you a peace-filled New Year
My guest this week has a different type of grief story. Brandon Wainwright is an animal lover, a police officer, and a Reiki practitioner. He lives with his wife, daughter, two dogs, and a chinchilla in the San Francisco Bay area, although they're moving less than a week from when this episode is released. Brandon wrote a wonderful book, Tyson's Gift, after the passing of their family dog, Tyson. The book follows the story of Tyson and their family, the impact Tyson had on Brandon while Tyson was in this life, and the spiritual awakening Brandon had after Tyson went to Spirit.I know a lot of my listeners are animal lovers just like I am. Animals are Souls just like we are, and the impact they have on our lives is immeasurable. The gifts that Tyson brought to Brandon and his family live on. I highly encourage you to get a copy of this book. I cried through a lot of it because Brandon lets you feel as if you know Tyson on an intimate level. The story of his healing through his spiritual awakening is really special, and Tyson clearly orchestrated that. How a pint sized dog named Tyson helped create a spiritual awakening in an agnostic police officerHow Tyson came into their livesWhy Brandon wasn't initially excited about his wife bringing Tyson into their livesWhat Brandon had to do to win Tyson's trust and respectHow Tyson helped open Brandon's heart in ways he didn't know he neededThe questions he asked after Tyson left this life that led to his spiritual awakeningHis experiences with animal communicatorsThe reasons he wrote “Tyson's Gift”Why he was compelled, but not necessarily convinced, by some of the stories of animal communicationHow he went from "belief" about the Afterlife to "knowing"The experiences his wife and daughter had “hearing” Tyson after he went to SpiritThe hilarious story of Tyson and their other dog, Chloe, getting into the pantry and what they ate!The bond between Tyson and Chloe both in this life and now that they're both in SpiritHis first experience with a medium when some of his loved ones in Spirit came throughThe fears he had as he embarked on his Reiki training (you will probably relate to these!)What Tyson's Gift really is - and where the name of the book came fromHow Tyson's Spirit is kept alive every dayWhile losing a pet and losing a child are not the same, the similarities he sees in both lossesMy experience with an animal communicator this summer when my dog, Huckle, had cancerBe sure to visit Brandon's website, and pick up a copy of his book, Tyson's Gift, on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and other bookstores (or directly from his website).
The holidays bring up so many emotions when we someone close to us has gone to Spirit. As I was meditating on what to share in this year's holiday episode, I kept hearing that I should use the episode from 2020 because the ideas shared in that episode are timeless. I added something new in the beginning and at the end, and I did a lot of editing. So even if you listened to the episode last year, I invite you to listen again this year because you'll hear something new, or you'll hear something in a different way than you did last year.In this episode I shared:The very different Thanksgiving I had this year - and why it was perfect for meWhat to do during the holidays if you have other children or grandchildrenWhat to do if your only child is in Spirit and you're alone for the holidaysHoliday preparationsSetting boundaries to honor your griefThings to consider about your traditionsWhat to do if your grief becomes too much during a holiday get togetherWays you can honor your child or other loved ones during the holidaysRandom acts of kindness you can do in your child's or other loved one's nameThe importance of time and space in your holiday calendar I'd love to hear what you're going to do to honor yourself, your child, or other loved one during this tender season.

Music can uplift us. It can comfort us. It can bring tears of joy and tears of sadness. It's connected to some of our most cherished and profound memories. And, it can help us heal.Scott Howard left corporate America to write, produce and sing a unique form of music using the frequency of 432 Hz, which is the frequency for healing. Little did he know that a few short years later, that music would help him on his own healing journey when his 29-year old son unexpectedly went to Spirit.From his paranormal experiences to the healing potential of music at the correct frequency, join Scott and me for a fascinating conversation where we talked about:The photographic evidence he received 3 days after his son went to SpiritHis awakeningThe things he saw on the “trip” he took - without any drugsWhat he saw in the cloudsHis journey from corporate America to creating a new genre of musicWhy we must raise our frequency right nowHow the switch to 440 Hz music by the Germans in WWII affected (and continues to affect) humanityWhat happens to digital pictures that doesn't happen with filmHow the Angel numbers he sees has changedHow he writes his musicWhy he believes we're all masters of survivalWhat he does with his runaway thoughts (we all have them!)What happens when the Angels realize you're listening to themWhat scared him when he saw three beings standing up in the SunWhat he believes his Soul mission isHow frequency helps the brain healHis clothing line - and the surprise incorporated into each pieceWhy it's so important to be careful with the words you use and what you signHis experience with the Blue Kachina in Utah in 2021 when the world was shut downScott gifted us by playing a beautiful song, Illusions of Life, on the episode.
