Our compact, portable set of peaceful cards fits easily in pocket or purse. The affirmations help focus your thoughts on finding peace with your loss. While aimed at the loss of a loved one or beloved pet, many of the cards are also applicable to other kinds of loss, including loss of a job, home or mobility.
The Apache Tear is a round, obsidian protective stone that is said to be helpful for grief. You’ll find one in virtually every one of our healing candles and in our large grief gift.
An Apache tear is included in each large grief gift. You can now add it here for only $2.00. See legend of the Apache tear below in Description.
Affirmations are powerful tools for grief. Draw a card when you’re having a particularly tough time to focus your thoughts on these supportive affirmations. Draw a single card each day and focus on that or choose several to meditate on throughout the day.
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.
