Escape from Grief Prison: A Story of Love, Loss, and Healing (Paperback)
In the prison of your soul
Fear and grief may take control.
Oppressive as they both may be
Allow the truth to set you free.
A compelling love story, the harsh reality of earthly loss, and evidence of the extraordinary power of healing fill these pages, laced with hope and promise. Written by first-time author Gail Norwood, this true story erupts with both the stunning beauty and the depths of sadness that constitute our lives-all our lives, not only those who have recently lost a loved one. It is an intimate reflection on loss, which we all have, and healing, which we all need. Our losses are as different and unique as each of us, but many of the fundamental strategies to help us cope are universal. These nurturing truths are there to guide us, comfort us, and encourage us to live again.
An unexpected sentence to Grief Prison is a portal to the dark side of bereavement. In this bleak midwinter of our soul, we are detained in sullen captivity. It is solitary confinement, a lonely internment where we are held against our will. But can we escape? Can we escape to a good grief, one that is healthy, productive, and enlightening?
The keys to good grief can open the lock binding us to this cruel incarceration. One key is recognizing our choices and keeping our balance. Another reminds us to practice acceptance and letting go. Gratitude fills us with joy as we rise to our higher selves and cherish our sacred present moment. The light in the darkness guides us each day as we relearn the eternal lesson of death and rebirth, loss and renewal. Embrace these keys to healing and feel the freedom
