Grief is an emotion of intense sorrow experienced in response to a significant loss, such as the death of a friend or relative. Some of the signs of Grief are tightness in the throat or chest, a preoccupation with the deceased, sleep disturbance, and withdrawal from social contact. Although there are certain stages to Grief, the experience can be very different for different individuals. It can be experienced and expressed in many different ways.
Initially, grieving can be an overwhelming emotion that can cause the sufferer to feel as if they are out of control. It affects people emotionally, but also physically, psychologically and spiritually. The loss of a spouse, child or parent can affect the way we perceive ourselves. We may feel a deep sense of confusion due to this change in personal identity. An unexpected, sudden death of a loved one often generates confusion and shock. Fatal accidents, for example, can leave family members confused and searching for answers. Feelings of guilt due to these sudden losses can overwhelm a grieving individual and to many the future may appear bleak.
Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, who brought the Transcendental Meditation technique to the world more than 50 years ago, has revived and systematized Maharishi Vedic Vibration Technology. The word "Vedic" means pertaining to Veda, the field of Pure Knowledge or Total Knowledge of Natural Law.
For thousands of years, Veda and the Vedic Literature have been held to be the expression of the Total Knowledge of Natural Law. According to tradition, the Vedic sounds contained in Veda are the fundamental vibrations which structure the material universe, including the human body. Through a tender impulse of Vedic vibration, pain can be transformed into a feeling of pleasantness and abnormality can be transformed into normal physiological functioning.
