Grief Tools; What are Mine?

Season #1 Episode #11

In this mini "Down the Rabbit Hole " Episode I discuss the many tools that I have placed in my "grief toolkit" and others that I am exploring. This is NOT to be taken as definitive OR construed as medical advice.  I offer ONLY my own perspective & thoughts  based on my life, beliefs & experiences, but that's all it is … this ladies opinion.  And I really only scratch the surface & will talk on this subject more in the future as well as have deeper conversations on some of the "tools" I use & rely on!

As with everything you hear on my podcasts, please take that which serves you & leave the rest. I hope you will find something of value & I am so sorry that you need to be here, but so honored you are here. Talk soon!

Here are a few - ONLY a few - places to explore your curiosity in the subjects I addressed today. This is NOT a definitive guide NOR is it official advice - just me sharing some resources:

WebMD article on Essential Oils - an interesting read

DoTerra Oils; How to use them - this is the brand I use

Evolve Transpersonal Crystal Healing - straight from the land down under

Beginners Guide to Chakra's - one of so many places to start AND it links you to Yoga Journal so a 2-for-1 here :)

Prevention Magazine article of anxiety/chakras/meditation

Sound Healing Benefits article in Well & Good

The best "Crystal Live" on Instagram (in my opinion) for real connection AND crystals

OPRAH article on Cleansing Aura & Chakras - I mean if Oprah says .... lol, it is an interesting article though

There are so many more I could put here (like podcasts I recommendations or audio books I have enjoyed)  but will save for another day! :)
