Inspirational Grieving Quotes – Using Inspirational Grieving Quotes to Deal With Loss

Everyone at some point in their lives will deal with the death of a loved one, be it a family member, lover, friend, or pet. Using inspirational grieving quotes in art and art journaling is a healthy way to work through the grief and loss of a loved one.

When someone dies that you love dearly, there are so many stages of grieving you must go through. I don’t think anyone really understands how complex grieving a death is. Death is not something that is talked about much in the U.S. culture. In movies it is usually depicted as something that doesn’t really affect us emotionally, or something that the deceased one can come back from.

Inspirational grieving quotes can and do help lots of people move through the grieving process, especially if they are combined with journaling and/or artwork creation. Below I’ve provided a couple of art ideas that you can use with inspirational grieving quotes.

But first, here are my top ten favorite quotes on death:

  • “For what is it to die, But to stand in the sun and melt into the wind? And when the Earth has claimed our limbs, Then we shall truly dance.” – Kahlil Gibran
  • ” Death is the most beautiful adventure in life.” – Charles Frohman
  • “Life is eternal and love is immortal; And death is only a horizon, And a horizon is nothing save the limit of our sight.” – Rossiter W. Raymond
  • “The mystery of love is greater than the mystery of death.” – Unknown
  • “Death is not extinguishing the light; it is putting out the lamp because dawn has come.” – Rabindranath Tagore
  • “Our earthly loss is always a heavenly gain.” – Antonio Talbert
  • “Perhaps they are not stars, but openings in the Heaven, Where the love of our lost ones pours through and shines down upon us, To let us know they are happy.” – Author Unknown
  • “Death is not the end. Death can never be the end. Death is the road. Life is the traveller. The Soul is the Guide.” – Sri Chinmoy
  • “I think of death as some delightful journey that I shall take when all my tasks are done.” – Ella Wheeler Wilcox
  • “Death— the last sleep? No the final awakening.” – Walter Scott

Art Ideas For Use With Inspirational Grieving Quotes:

Letters to Heaven Mail Box

It doesn’t need to be “Heaven”, it can be The Universe, The After Life, etc. Find a shoe box (or other type of box) and decorate it in a way that you think a “mail box in heaven” would look like. Use your imagination. Write letters, create drawings, or write out quotes and poems to your loved one. Put your letters and drawings in envelopes and address them to departed one. Or find inspirational grieving quotes that move you and write them on postcards (these can be homemade). Put your letters and postcards in the mail box and visualize then being picked up by an angel or spirit and delivered directly to the addressee. Imagine how happy they will be to receive your letters.

Using Grieving Quotes in Art Journaling

Find a quote that really say what you’re feeling. Print or write them out in big letters on pretty paper and cut them up into individual words. Next look for images in magazines or draw your own images. Paste the images onto a piece of paper or into a journaling book. Place the words that form the quote on the page. Move them around until you like the way they look on the page, but still keeping them in a reading order. Glue them onto the page. If you’re using a journal, consider naming this journal as a “grieving journal or naming it after your loved one. If its on a piece of paper, decorate a large envlope or box to keep all of your grieving artwork in.

It doesn’t matter if you don’t believe they will ever see or read these inspirational grieving quotes or your artwork. What is important is doing these things will help you move thro your feelings and help you move through the grieving process.
