Episode Description

You don't know whether to turn right or left; go backwards or forwards. Your emotions are up and down like a roller coaster, all over the place and you don't know if you're coming or going. You want to close your eyes and sleep but you can't because your thoughts won't let you. It's time for YOU to BREAK FREE! In 2015 I released a poem book titled 365 Days of Self Worth Praise, I Survived! and in that book I wrote a poem titled, "Soul Ties," and it starts like this, "I was sleeping with this man and I couldn't understand why for the life of me I couldn't let him be. I knew he was no good for me and I wanted to break free, but I kept going back like a crack addict, I had to have it. My soul was not letting go even though my mind kept saying no. What's wrong with me, did he cast a spell to keep me locked in this hell? I can't explain why I can't release the pain..." Join Patricia Shaw to learn how she broke free. And how you can too!

From Mourning to Morning

From Mourning to Morning

Thursday at 5 PM Pacific Time on VoiceAmerica Empowerment Channel

Rabbi Mel Glazer dedicates his life to helping people face loss, because he himself has faced loss. His father died the day before his twelfth birthday. Yet he has moved beyond the emotional pain which accompanies loss. So can you. Drawn to a life of service to others, he became a Rabbi, a Doctor of Ministry, and then a Grief Authority so he could help others find a better way to heal from their losses. His two award-winning books have helped thousands of grievers find direction in their response to loss. Whether we are of any faith, or of no faith at all, losing loved ones inspires some of the deepest spiritual questions we will ever face in our lives. What meaning can we find in our losses? Where do we begin? Rabbi Mel connects his life as a leader of his community with his life as a supporter and comforter of other mourners. From this unique position, he has a great deal to teach us about facing loss. Rabbi Mel makes it possible for us to go “from mourning to morning.”

Rabbi Mel Glazer

It is a sad fact of life: Once we are born, we start to lose. You are here because you have lost someone or something very special, and you have no idea what to do or where to go or how to get there. It hurts. You are in pain. There may be tears and depression and hiding from the world and from your friends and family. You feel lost. We lose good friends, spouses, children, jobs, pets and our health. When that happens, we are clueless about what to do and how to move forward. Why is that?

Our parents do not teach us these lessons, nor does our society. We need to learn the correct way to “lay them gently down, to say goodbye.” Grieving means to complete the relationship with the departed, to say goodbye (not to forget about them!) and to be able to move forward to lives of joy and celebration. I, too have many losses in my life: Daddy died two days before my twelfth birthday. My first wife was sick for years and died. I have had heart disease for years. I recovered from those losses. I became a Rabbi, then I got a Doctorate from Princeton Theological Seminary in Counseling. I have written award-winning books on grief. And I am now a radio show host on VoiceAmerica.com. I did it, and so can you!

Listen to what I have to say about grief, loss and healing. You ARE strong and resilient enough. You can do this. I will take very good care of you!
