Being a pet owner is an amazing thing, but of course with that comes the burden of eventual loss. If you are a pet lover, you know that they are the most wonderful, unconditional love you will ever experience in this life… and they will be, by far one of the most difficult goodbyes.
The pain of loss can often feel overwhelming and trigger all sorts of painful and difficult emotions. While some people may not understand the depth of love you had for your pet, you should never feel guilty or ashamed about grieving for a family member. Yes, our pets become our family. It’s important to acknowledge that the tears, the heartache, the frustration, the anger—and yes, the grief, is all too real and legit.
I pieced this together for my Father and his wife. They just recently lost their little fur baby. While this ritual will not bring Bok Choy back, I hope that they can find some comfort, healing and peace with it.
If you have lost a beloved pet feel free to use this ritual to help aid you in the grieving process. If you have lost a pet, I send you my condolences, and healing light.
