The Mary Mac Show | The Silence is Deafening

The Mary Mac Show Podcast

In Episode 166, we speak about the deafening silence we come home to after our loved one has died and ways to cope and flourish while living alone.

One of the most difficult parts of the grieving process is when a loved one dies and it leaves your home empty. You are now the only inhabitant. And you never thought you’d have the additional burden of reassessing how you are going to live day to day.

Death can leave you lonely but it can also cause you to be alone.

And in this episode we look at the nuances of being alone while grieving your loved one’s death and how to determine what would be best for you as you build a new life. One, perhaps you didn’t want to deal with at this stage of life.

Life can hand us many twists and turns and after a loved one’s death so much needs to be dealt with.

Listen in to Episode 166 to learn coping and practical skills to help you along this new road.

Bless you, my warrior.

The Mary Mac Show | Gift of Homeopathy with Dana Ullman, MPH, CCH

In Episode 165, we are honored to spend time with Dana Ullman, the renowned homeopathic expert, who teaches us how remedies help those grieving a loved one’s death.

Homeopathy is practiced worldwide by millions of people including royalty (Queen Elizabeth II), heads of state, presidents, religious leaders, sports superstars, corporate leaders, philanthropists (Mother Teresa), musicians, actors, women rights leaders, actors, even Russian Czars.

Years ago we had homeopathic hospitals in the United States and many used their remedies before reaching out to pharmaceuticals to help their ailments.

As allopathic drugs tend to suppress the issue, homeopathic remedies look to get to the root cause and cure it.

Homeopathic doctors and practitioners seek to dig deep and look for just the right remedy to help with a person’s emotional, physical and mental issues all at the same time.

If you are struggling with something that traditional doctors cannot help with, or if you want to live a healthier lifestyle, please connect with Dana Ullman in the contact area of his website.

You have nothing to lose and everything to gain!

The Mary Mac Show | Creating a New You 2023

The Mary Mac Show Podcast

In Episode 161, we welcome in the New Year and start to clarify what we truly want our life to be like in the future.

In years past we might have been so excited when New Year’s Eve came along and we made plans to attend gatherings and parties with the special people in our lives.

But after a loved one’s death, it becomes hard to look forward to a new year without them.

In this week’s episode, we try to push you, just a little, to start the process of considering with clarity what exactly YOU want in the new year and to make it plain in your journal.

It can take a lot of thought to think through what you believe is best for YOU at this time.

And when you write it down on paper, it becomes more clear so you can determine which would work best for you.

Now you may come up with several options and then put them in priority.

You may not get to all of them by the end of this new year, but that’s perfectly ok.

If you can decide on one option in each of the areas I speak about in this week’s podcast, that will be enough.

But do have one priority for each so you have clarity of what will bring you joy, what will bring more success to your life and what will help you spend time working on you not only concentrating on the death of your loved one.

The sad thing is we have no control over what happened to them and to us. We only have control of how we react.

So take the time to concentrate on yourself this week and consider what’s best for your 2023!

We will always remember them, love them, and yes, to varying degrees grief for them. But that doesn’t mean we need to stay stuck.

Blessings to You.

Let me know how it’s going!


Additional Notes – Some things that will help along this journey to ease the pain:

If you are having an especially difficult time emotionally, I recommend you speak with a specialist at a hotline near you. Here you will find hotlines all around the world. Trained counselors are there to listen, free of charge, to what’s going on with you. Take advantage of their great kindness. Vent with an objective individual. You don’t have to be ‘suicidal’ to call them, but if you are, that’s the best place to call. Don’t hestitate!

For parents and teens, there is an amazing resource where you can email or text counselors for help at The Boys Town National Hotline! Outstanding assistance for your children and you. You can also dial 988 for assistance.

Visit Julie’s EFT episodes on grief and she will teach you the Emotional Freedom Technique. Her videos calm your spirit and help you release emotional and physical pain as you move forward.

Here are some meditation music to help you rest.

You can order your Bach’s Rescue Remedy from most health food stores, either in person or online. Remember, these do have alcohol in them.

I use the Rescue Remedy 20ml drops but they have spray and other versions which might work better for you. And…they also have products to calm pets, too.

*To find a homeopathic doctor, visit here or here. Many offer phone consultations if you cannot find one in your area. They work with patients around the globe. You can also research in your area of the world.
