There is no one-size-fits-all method of coping with the loss of a loved one because grief is an individual and complex experience. In the past, closure, acceptance, and moving on were central concepts in grief theory. Recent studies, however, have demonstrated that keeping in touch with a deceased loved one can play a significant role in healthy grief. According to the Continuing Bonds Theory of Grief, establishing a new relationship with the deceased person can be an important step in the healing process.
You’re not the only person who is trying to maintain a relationship with a deceased loved one. Keeping in touch with their loved ones after they have passed away can be incredibly calming and healing for many people. In this article, we’ll look at some techniques for communicating with a loved one who has passed away and offer advice on how to get comfort and closure.
Some of these concepts might be new to you, while others might be things you already do but didn’t realize they indicated that you weren’t grieving properly or that you weren’t “moving on” as you ought to be. We hope that some of the advice on our list will apply to you, no matter what the circumstances.
