Finding Purpose Through Grief with Ed Owens - Grief Recovery Now with Charlene Gorzela

If you listen to the podcast you will learn that Ed comes from a long military and law enforcement background and also experienced the tragic loss of his three year old son, who as a result of a failed lock, got his hands on Ed's service pistol and shot himself.

I have been blessed to be trained by Ed a couple of times now and every time I get to hear him speak, interact and teach those of us who want to learn, I am blown away by his grace and genuine care for people and desire for change in the world of grief education.

Please take the time to listen to Ed's words on grief, love, hope, and healing.

He is the epitome of someone who genuinely cares for others and I feel so lucky to have him as a support, leader, and trainer.

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE HAVE A LISTEN. These conversations are what will change the future for grievers.

#NowPlaying You may think you know how to best cope with your grief or how to overcome your pain, until something happens that causes grief to consume every aspect of your life. When this happens, many people turn to anger, humor, overproductivity, or other STERB - Short Term Energy Relieving Behavior. These sh...

The Silver Lining; with Guest Cst. Stacey McKinnon OC 14 - Ordinary Courage with Vanisha Breault

On Saturday I had an opportunity to sit down and listen to a podcast episode from start to finish and to say I was blown away would be an understatement.

As you all know I speak openly about courage, vulnerability, and healing almost on a daily basis and this episode really resonated with me on so many levels.

Not only can I relate to Stacey from a police officer perspective, but I appreciate Vanisha's story of hope and what she has done to raise awareness on addiction.

I don't want to share too much because I really want you to take the time to have a listen. I was in tears more than once while listening.

I found myself relating to Stacey because of all I experienced over a decade long policing career and what drove me to psychology, and to Vanisha because of not only the insurmountable grief she has experienced but her drive for change in a world that can be so cold and critical of others.

Stacey and Vanisha.....and Eden ๐Ÿ˜‰ you are all amazing women and I thank you so much for having this incredibly vulnerable conversation and sharing it openly.

#NowPlaying In this episode of the OC Podcast I speak with my "sister" Cst. Stacey McKinnon of the Calgary Police Service. I first met Cst. McKinnon back in 2015, I clearly did not refer to her as my sister at that time- Stacey had been one of several members of the CPS to respond to a call I had put in to atte...

WATCH THIS EVERY DAY - Motivational Speech By Dr. Joe Dispenza

"You can learn to change in a state of pain and suffering, or you can learn to change from a place of joy and inspiration" - Joe Dispenza

I strongly encourage learning now instead of waiting for rock bottom.

This video resonates with me so much and I hope you will take 13 minutes today to watch it ๐Ÿ’™

I have learned so much about metacognition and it's funny because I started learning more in depth about it in school at around the same time I started practicing meditation. Coincidence? I don't think so.

The very steps I've taken to work on my anxiety and fear is exactly what he talks about in this video:

1. I had to shift how I perceived past events in my life (This is hard work but well worth every ugly emotion).

2. I had to learn to reframe my negative and fear inducing thoughts. Not stop them from happening, but reframing them when they do.

3. I stopped waiting for "success" to feel happy and empowered. If you are waiting for "success" to be happy, you will NEVER be truly happy.

If you don't know Joe Dispenza's story, look it up. It is stories like his that remind me that we are so much more capable than we and society give us credit for. We know ourselves better than any one else, even better than those with years and years and years of education and a billion letters behind their name.

I believe we need those professions to help guide us and to work collaboratively with us (obviously or I wouldn't be paying loads of money for tuition) but what you know and what you are capable of is equally as important.

Growth and healing starts with YOU.

Rebirth (2011) - Official Trailer [HD]

I will never forget this day. This documentary is an amazing example of grief and healing and I encourage you to watch it. I watched it in 2016 for the first time as it was introduced to me by a wonderful friend. Not only did it help me learn a lot about the events of 9/11 but it also offered me hope on my own grieving process. โ €

I reached out to Tanya (who is featured in this film) after I watched it to send her my love. We have a mutual friend in the widow community. This was the heartfelt message she had for me throughout our conversations. Her messages to me were beyond helpful and ones that I carried with me throughout my grief journey.

Life, death and being a man in Medicine Hat

My heart is with everyone tonight in Medicine Hat who will be attending the candlelight vigil for all the lives that have been lost far too soon.

This article I have attached is a long read but I truly hope you will read every word to the very end because these words were put together so eloquently and these words matter.

It has been so difficult to watch the pain that has transpired over and over in my home town of Medicine Hat. Although I didn't know any of these men on a personal level, I knew of almost all of them and attended some of the same gatherings on more than one occasion.

Each time I have received a message on my phone from someone notifying me of yet another suicide, my heart has sunk and I felt helpless.

Instantly helpless.

What am I going to do to change this?

What can I possibly do to help so more people don't have to be in pain?

I don't know all the answers, but I do know that I will not turn my head and I will not pretend it's not a problem, even a crisis perhaps.

Between the suicides in Medicine Hat and those in our RCMP family over the last few months, I am grateful to see people talking about this.

I want to a part of the solution and I hope some day seeking support in whatever way that looks for you becomes as normal and routine as going to go to the grocery store.

This will take time but I have faith.

You will never hear me say "man up" and I will teach my son that it's okay for him to feel and to express those feelings whether good or bad.

Many of us weren't taught this and that is because our parents weren't taught it and their parents weren't taught it. We know what we know and that is what we teach so our parents aren't to blame. So please know that's not what I am insinuating.

This is a societal issue and as a society we know different now, we know better, and we need to shift the thinking.

Suicide is so complex but if we all work together to learn more, I know lives will be saved.

I don't have the answers but this article is a start. These conversations are a start. Everything you are all doing is a massive start.


#mentalhealthawareness #SuicideAwareness A string of suicides among young men has rocked this small Alberta city. Now, friends, family and survivors are speaking out about what happened and what needs to change.

It's been almost one year since I arrived at my Grief Recovery training, only to find out that my life was about to be changed.

I am so blessed to be able to do this work and to have learned from a woman who I not only admire, but who provided the space for all of us to open up and share our stories. It was mind blowing ;)

I shared the blog below, a week after my training.

I was so inspired to get started with this work and since then I have had the pleasure of working with people who have trusted me with this process. It is emotional and requires a significant amount of vulnerability and I am grateful for anyone who lets me into their grief journey.

Grief is not only about death

To say 2020 has been a crazy year for everyone would be a huge understatement. I think it's so important now than ever to talk about grief.

When I ask people what they think of when I say the word grief, most people respond by saying death. If I pry a little more, they will usually say a break-up or divorce. The reality is there are over 40 losses a person can experience that may result in grief.

What I have noticed as a Coach and a Grief Recovery Specialist is that most people who reach out to get help with making a change in their life, is carrying some kind of unresolved grief.

Time does not heal unresolved grief, only actions do.

Are you carrying unresolved grief? Did you know it was grief you were feeling?

Although Meg had witnessed hardships, tragedy, and death on a regular basis through her job, it never really hit her just how fragile and precious this life is, and why it is so important to do what makes you happy. Following this experience, Meg decided to move her career to a bigger city in hopes of having the light inside of her reignited. Quitting policing didnโ€™t seem to be an option, as it was something she worked so hard for. Not to mention, it was a financially stable job with endless benefits. At first, she was living the dream and loving her new life. She not only found the work to be exciting and gratifying, but she also met the love of her life as a result of her relocation. The honeymoon stage with her newfound love blossomed into a solid and dependable relationship, but the honeymoon stage in her career vanished quickly. In 2014 Meg shared a message with many of her close friends and family, pleading for support and advice in relation to her career. Meg had been a Police Officer since 2008 and so many times felt stuck and capable of so much more. Policing is an admirable job and those who make the decision to pursue it should be commended. However, for many years, despite loving many parts of the job and being good at it, Meg knew from the depths of her soul that policing was not her calling, and she was determined to find out what was. Megโ€™s career continued to grow, and she found herself in a position she found rather satisfying, but highly stressful, and required her to sacrifice a lot of her personal life. It was exhausting, never-ending, and soul-sucking because it did not align with any of her core values in terms of life balance. Meg knew she had to make some changes, and the love of her life Nick was on board right alongside her. The two of them came up with an attainable five-year plan, and the journey to a new, more abundant life began. Only weeks after this newfound plan was crafted, Meg was hit with a life-changing tragedy. Nick died suddenly in an Avalanche while snowmobiling, only months before she was supposed to marry him. This was only one month after she purchased the most beautiful wedding dress she had ever seen. Megโ€™s heart was shattered and her world had completely fallen a part. On February 20, 2016, Meg was given a life she didnโ€™t ask for and one she could have never prepared for. She truly believed she had only two choices; she either lived, or she didnโ€™t. Meg chose to live, and when she chose to live, she wasnโ€™t choosing to merely exist, she was choosing to live in a way that was fearless, intentional, and always aligned with her soul.

Courageous Life Coaching was only one of Megโ€™s aspirations, and it has been built on the premise that you can truly take control of your own story as long as you have a will to do so. Anything is possible and undesirable circumstances do not have to destroy you, nor do they have to define you. Meg has made it her life mission to live on purpose and wants nothing more than to encourage others to do the same. For more on Megโ€™s journey after loss, please click on the link below:
