Tips

A Difficult, Insightful Journey

Icon_tip_1

You’ve lost a loved one, someone very dear to you. Please accept our condolences. No words can alleviate your pain, but we’re here to help you through the first 30 days of your grief. You’re more resilient than you think: Though you may never cease to feel the loss of your loved one, you can emerge from your grief a stronger person with positive memories to cherish.

There is no right or wrong way to grieve. In addition to great pain and sadness, you may experience some indecisiveness, guilt and fear. Even those who consider themselves level-headed and composed may feel lost and confused about what they can, need or want to do during the grieving process.

However, you can also expect the support of those who love you, fond memories of the one you lost and a sense of gratitude for having known your loved one while he or she was living.

Grief is a very personal journey that’s full of so many emotions, thoughts and realities—each as unique as each individual. Only you will know what’s right for you. The First30Days community will be here to share information on how to navigate the fog of shock; show new ways to lean on the friends and family around you; provide practical tips on taking care of yourself during this time; and impart inspiration to help you move forward.

Take time for yourself today: Take emotional stock and decide what you’re ready or not ready to do. Your feelings may change from day to day, and that’s natural. Most importantly, be kind to yourself and acknowledge your emotions.

I am in my early 40s and have never had a happy relationships or marriages because of the terrible mistake I made in my youthful age (15 years ago), though I have been married for 3times now. This story is ugly but I must share it to clear my conscience and pave the way for a new beginning in life. I broke two homes; their marriage did not mean anything to me as much as I gets what I want. It was fun until I got married, then karma started. My first husband was a cheating machine with both women and men, the second was nothing to write home about. I visited a therapist immediately the second left, to make sure I do not have broken home again, but the third which I have married for a year and two months took in another girl and demanded I leave his house. I did not see that one coming. To cut it shot; dr. wakina via (dr.wakinalovetemple@gmail.com) showed me mercy by rewriting history with a special love spell. Asked me to first go and plead for forgiveness from the homes I broke before the spell can take effect, it was not an easy task, in fact it was a suicide mission but was success. The spell took effect immediately I forgave myself, something strange began to happen, I saw shadows running off my body that morning, my husband who despised me so much did not only call but came to pick me from work to a romantic dinner. Over a year now, my husband has remained a loving and romantic man. I learnt my lesson. Thank you doctor wakina.

My ex regretted leaving me and was stalking me recently. After reading a blog review from Enid Peter how her Husband’s ex decided to contact him the moment they planned to build a family together, I quickly became interested cos my ex has been stalking me. Even after knowing that I am married with a kid, he kept forcing himself into me to have one more bit.
His actions brought a serious damage to my marriage when my husband found out, he lost trust in me and changed his behavior by paying deaf ear as I try to justify my relationship towards my ex, he instead said he has fallen out of love for me and he need space and separation from me and the only thing keeping us is our kid.
I became worried that my ex might succeed in ruining my 6 years old marriage because of jealousy. My husband and I almost went our separate ways before I found the review from Enid Peter last weekend containing Dr. Wakina’s email [dr.wakinalovetemple@gmail.com]
Just a day after the twenty four hours healing spell for my broken marriage, my husband became himself again like the man of my dream. My stalking ex come to our house that night to plead to my husband and I before fleeing away for good. What a lovely and caring husband he is now, am happy Dr. Wakina helped me defeat my physical and spiritual enemies, we are champions. More strength to Dr. Wakina.

I will keep this review short and simple. I believe the general public already knows the effective and genuine powers of Dr. Wakina love spell. I am now among the people sharing reviews about his love spell because I benefited from it. My husband was gone for 8 months ): and I was lied upon by trusted people, even from my Cousin who promised to help seek for spiritual powers that will help bring him back. I was emotionally abused until when I discovered that a popular spiritual healer online can equally help, I never hesitated to give him a try. The shot I took turned out positive. My instincts did not fail. I cherish Dr. Wakina for keeping to his words. Now that my husband is back as I requested, I feel excited to share this review and Dr. Wakina email. You can contact him for help, I believe he will help: dr.wakinalovetemple@gmail.com

My family advised me not to leave my future or that of my child in the hands of a jerk! They do not really know what he means to me. He left me because of family issues, my parents never liked him, they thought he is stingy and too quiet, but they never knew he is richly blessed inside. Though I tried several time to make them accept him before the pregnancy saga which made them go mad and pressured him to force our breakup. We lost contact with each other, he did not see our son when she was delivered. But I kept wishing to be with him again for eternity, I pray every night that my parents forgive him and accept him the way he is.
2yeras passed and I still kept my hope strong, I was referred to Dr. Wakina by a stranger online who benefited from his love spell, her testimony motivated me to contact him for. I was afraid because I have not done such before because I do not want to hurt anybody. I was surprised when Dr. Wakina first told me my problems and status of my baby father. It was quite impressive that I had to share tears of joy with high hope.
Valentine came early the day Dr. Wakina brought back my baby father after 2years of waiting. My family welcomed him with an open arms and apologized for their wrongs, he is now every bodies favorite. I am happy for the brilliant work done by Dr. Wakina, it was almost impossible to bring him back after 2years. I will never forget his reactions the first time he saw our son. Happiness prevailed at last. Doctor Wakina can be reached via dr.wakinalovetemple@gmail.com
