On this episode of The Grief Recovery Hour with Sharon Brubaker, Sharon is joined in studio by fellow Grief Recovery specialist from Grief Reiki, Sharon Ehlers.
Tune in to hear more on Sharon Ehlers own loss and grief that led her to seeking out different methods of grief recovery and how she shares that knowledge now with people suffering loss and grief of any kind.
April 2015 marks the three-year anniversary of my former fiancé’s death. Since time does not heal when it comes to grief, it is not surprising that the “Anniversary” of his death is just as painful as the day he died. Although we were no longer together when he passed away, I can honestly say that he was my one true love. The pain of his death has been soul wrenching and gut stomping. Time couldn’t possibly ever heal that wound. Why would I want it to?
The first day, the first week, the first month, the first year after his death was tough. Who am I kidding – every day, every week, every month and every year has been tough. But the 4th of every month became a recurring, in-your-face reminder that he was gone.

As soon as I completed The Grief Recovery Method ®, I knew that my lifelong mission would be to learn everything I could about grief, and make it my life’s work to help others heal from their broken hearts.
I am truly honored to walk through the journey of grief recovery with my clients. At A time to grief, I work with clients to help them understand that unresolved grief is almost always associated with wishing things were better, different or more and that it can have to do with any unfulfilled hopes, dreams and expectations.
I am not only a Certified Grief Recovery Specialist—I am a griever. I teach in my program that grief is a normal and natural reaction to a loss of any kind. Yet, we were never taught how to grieve. Sadly, most of the information we are given immediately following a loss from family or friends is incorrect. It does little or nothing to help us feel better or to begin the healing process. So, we continue to search and search.
