Salam Claudia, The literal meaning of "يـغـربـل" is "to sieve", indeed. However, in the context you provided, it seems like the speaker is trying to express his or her uncertainty and confusion. The metaphor of "shaking a sieve" is used here to draw parallel with the agitation and restlessness that the speaker is feeling.
