Use the writing prompts to express your feelings, frustrations, sadness or other emotions about your loss. Psychologists tell us that airing those feelings helps us manage through tough times more effectively.
If you added an Apache Tear: LEGEND OF THE APACHE TEAR STONE: The legend of the Apache tear goes back to a battle between the U.S. Cavalry and Apaches fought on an Arizona mountain in the 1870’s. The Apaches were vastly outpowered. Rather than surrender, warriors rode their horses off the mountain to their deaths.
Apache Tears are said to be tears cried by the wives and families when they heard of the tragedy: their tears turned to stone when they hit the ground.
Keep the stone with you and rub it between your fingers or hold in your hand during meditation or when you are feeling sad. (Note from Carol: I used an Apache Tear stone during my own recent time of grief and it was very comforting.)
Stone size varies but each is big enough to hold in your hand.
