Sometimes i forget to use the tools i’ve been given. And, it’s good to remember that i have access to them anytime. Remembering can be a challenge!
It’s been interesting of late… having both of my parents pass within 3 months of each other, (even though they lived 42 years apart), i didn’t realize the amount of grief i’ve been feeling + carrying for some time now—even before they passed over, that threshold to the light of who they truly are.
It hit me the other day, out-of-the-blue, i remembered this blessed gift of ceremony and contemplation that i’ve been given and it has truly helped, once more. I feel much lighter, perhaps brighter…. I do know that grief never really goes away, and i find it’s another dear process of life that i’m learning to live with.
And, so i’m sharing this powerful process, a blessed opportunity to offer presence… stillness… inquiry… an easeful letting go… inviting the elements of cleansing salt + fire to offer support, deep relationship…
I share again with hopes that it can also help others. I have held a grief bundle for a while now and work with it when i feel i need to. (or remember to)…
This is a simple process... an old practice that can help honour our grief/sadness + release it through co-creation with the earth’s gifts of cleansing fire + salt through a easeful ceremony.
What you will need to gather...
Assemble all your items + to prepare/create ceremony…
(can be offered inside or out)
You can choose to offer this grief ceremony as many times as you feel you need to. And, when you feel ready, you can disperse the stones back to the earth by burying them, or by placing them in the ocean—which will also continue to clear that heaviness or darkness that no longer serves.
It’s an honour to share this simple, yet powerful process with you. It is my hope it can help during this time or anytime you are in need… and, do feel free to share, if you wish.
with much love + light,

*some notes: ‘dark and heavy energy’ (like grief/sadness, etc) is not negative, positive or bad energy. It’s just simply ‘heavy and dark‘, and it can weigh us down. This type of energy doesn’t serve and often, it’s not even ours to hold.
See energy as either light or dark, and know the ‘dark’ can be released easily. We don’t have to feel we have to hold onto it. One of the many gifts our blessed earth Mother offers is, She can release that ‘dark’ energy on behalf, for us. She transforms it, like compost, back into Light—which is who we truly are!
*another note: re washing or what to do with the stone/stones after…
It’s up to you what you choose to do with your stone(s). Check in with them + simply ask. Sometimes stones have done their work and may tell you they need dispersing or not. They are the old, wise ones and the story-tellers of our blessed Mother, the land. And, they have much to share with you—if you only ask. Connect with all your senses somatically to hook in, ask and listen deeply. Remember, we all connect in different ways… some see, some feel + sense, some hear, taste, smell, etc.. etc...
Hope that helps.
I welcome your thoughts and feedback…
Did this process work for you? Anything else?
with brightest blessings of much love,
