Processing Grief

This piece is made with snowflake jasper, Apache tear and a small pearl. These stones have been chosen for their positive effects in the processing of grief. We can’t “just get over it” when we are grieving, we need to move through the process with sensitivity and compassion for our experience. We need to allow every feeling as it arrives, acknowledge it, and only then can we gradually move on. Apache tear is a stone of feeling into our emotions, and finding ways of expressing them for our highest good. Snowflake obsidian is a stone that helps us to recognise lessons in difficult times, beauty in the depths of sadness, hope in the midst of grief. It is the beauty of a snowflake in the depths of cold winter. Pearl is a stone of flow, acceptance and peace.
