Sigyn, Pain, and Grief—and Healing

November 13, 2020 | Filed Under Devotions, Things I Think About | No Comments

As the Mourning Mother, Sigyn understands your pain when you grieve. She understands your rage at the unfairness of life, and she understands your desire to strike back, and your impotent fury that there is no real way to do so. Sigyn reminds you to feel your pain, to weep your tears, to let your heart break fully so that you can begin to heal.

Allow yourself to feel the grief, to mourn the loss, to weep and wail and keen. Suppressed grief is dangerous, eating at the heart and soul, darkening your spirit for the remainder of your years.

Mourn, bless, and release; the release includes not only releasing the pain once you have acknowledged it, but also releasing yourself from the cave to rejoin life after the period of mourning, and to live fully each day.

As the Lady of Victory, Sigyn reminds you to persevere, to persist, to keep going. No matter how dark the cave, no matter how many times the bowl fills and must be emptied, no matter how many times you want to cry or scream or collapse in frustration, Sigyn reminds you that you can do this. Whatever it is, you can make it through the darkness, and emerge from the cave victorious, ready to once again be part of your family and community, to live and thrive and create a full, rich life.

May Sigyn bring you comfort in your pain, and help you move through your grief so that you can return to the world stronger in heart and soul, and ready to reconnect with your life and your purpose.


Sigyn Speaks Comfort

by Anastasia Haysler

Listen, Dear One.
Hold my words in your heart.
Know you are safe and loved.
Let your heart fill with peace.

I, who am Mother to the lost,
the sorrowful, the mad;
I am here,
and you are under my protection.

Wrapped in my mantle,
safe within its folds,
You may rest, and
let your mind be at ease,
your heart be at peace,
your soul find rest and comfort.

All is well, Dear One,
and all shall be well.
