So again, if grief and sadness starts emerging in your life and it's either confusing because nothing is "wrong", or disorienting because you can't assign it to anything in particular, know that it is a natural complement to awakening, or shifting your identification from person, places and things to knowing the Self and appreciating the people, places and things in your life. Be aware of what you have been most identified with. Is it your body? Your mind? Your partner? Your children? Your job? Your possessions? It's not right or wrong to be identified with things, it's just a choice. It's just the more you are identified with something, the harder it is to allow for change, growth, expansion and transition. If you are strongly identified with something or someone and it changes it can be very painful. Whereas if you are identified as you, you can more easily welcome the change, invite the change and even celebrate the change, even if other people might name it as "negative" or a loss or something going wrong.
So naturally, as you awaken to knowing and being yourself at a deeper level, your identifications will change. It's natural to feel a mix of joy, peace and elation and sadness, grief and even depression. None of this is bad. It's not an indicator that something is wrong or has gone wrong, it's just what we often go through as we awaken in consciousness.
