Good Mourning is from TLC’s Long Island Medium, Theresa Caputo. If you’ve watched her show at all, you know that she can talk to Spirit who tells her things about the other side. Spirit told her that a lot of people can’t deal with the loss of a loved one because there are so many other loses in their lives that they don’t know how to deal with, so Theresa put this book together with ways to mourn other daily loses – these can include a relationship, a friendship, being an empty nester, your job, etc. Each chapter focuses on a different daily loss with some personal anecdotes and information from Theresa and then the end of the chapter has a “Good Mourning” recap with the recap to how you can help move through the loss. While all of these losses may not affect me right now, chances are they will at some point so I appreciated Theresa’s wisdom.
I received a free e-copy of this book in order to write this review, I was not otherwise compensated.
About the Book
Theresa Caputo, TLC’s Long Island Medium and the three-time New York Times bestselling author, teaches us how to ritualize and recover from the daily losses in our lives.
Life on earth comes with losses that often go unrecognized, unacknowledged, and un-mourned. This invisible pain causes deeper emotional damage— devastation that Theresa Caputo has witnessed in many of her clients. Though they are suffering, they rarely understand where the anguish is coming from—or how to deal with it.
Theresa’s clients often confuse their emotional distress with depression or anxiety. But it’s more than that. It’s grief, deep and profound, and it consumes the soul. The only relief, according to Theresa’s special gift she calls Spirit, is to pay more attention to how we experience, ritualize, and recover from the hurt in our lives.
Once we name these feelings of grief, recognize the losses for what they are, and create mourning rituals around them, we can move through the pain and begin to heal. It isn’t just a good idea to mourn these types of upsets; it’s essential, so that we can then enjoy a fresh beginning.
In Good Mourning, Theresa opens up more than ever before, and with the help of Spirit, helps us manage daily losses to ultimately lead more fulfilling and joyful lives.
