H – Higher Power Help

Because symptoms of grief and trauma can be so varied and so overwhelming, some form of prayer, meditation or ritual that calls upon a “Higher Power” or a ”Larger Force” can aid in healing. Numerous research studies have been conducted linking prayer and meditation with:

  • increased levels of dopamine (the body’s ‘feel-good” chemical)
  • decreased blood pressure, heart rate, and metabolism
  • calmer breathing patterns
  • a strengthened immune system
  • regaining a sense of calmness and control
