The Doctors and Shaman Durek met Meg, who is battling alcoholism and the grief surrounding the death of her father. The spiritual advisor helps her learn a new way to cope with her painful loss and difficult struggle.
After sitting with Meg, the shaman believes her anger and rage are causing her to turn to alcohol. Since undergoing guidance from the shaman, Meg tells us she is now feeling less stress and "doing really, really, well." She says she also feels more connected to her late father and now feels less of the guilt and shame connected to her father's death. Meg has also been able to stay sober since meeting with the shaman.
"I'm living more in the present and it's a feeling of gratitude and joy," she shares.
Like Meg, many people have trouble coping with trauma and grief and Shamna Durek tells The Doctors that instead of sitting with these feelings and emotions, he encourages our viewers to create space for yourself.
He suggests making an "ancestor altar," a space in your home that might feature pictures and candles where one can physically visit and remember lost loves ones. He also says at this altar you can speak with your late loved ones and tell them everything you might not have been able to do before losing them.
Meg created an ancestor altar for her father and says it felt "magical" and now she feels much more connected with him and at peace.
Shaman Durek says "actionable causes" can also help someone cope with grief. For instance, if a passed loved one enjoyed cooking, gathering the family together from time to time to cook together can be a way for you to honor and remember them.
