"There's such a lot of different Annes in me. I sometimes think that is why I'm such a troublesome person. If I was just the one Anne it would be ever so much more comfortable, but then it wouldn't be half so interesting."

the ache in my heart is easing today..... I have been sleeping with a rose quartz crystal clasped to my heart - the crystal sent to me by Gemma.... the crystal of the heart....

Heartsease ~ the flowers were considered cordial and good in mending a broken heart, from which may have arisen its popular name of Heartsease as much as from belief in it as a love potion.

no, I haven't been dosing up on Heartsease cordial but have been using a special mix of bach flowers - made up for me by my herbalist.

I have been really nurturing myself, the past few days, I had a glorious massage yesterday, I bought myself a magic hat, just like Daisy's and I have been sitting in my big comfortable chair reading a favourtie book - "apple tree lean down" while I sip hot chocolate..... all wonderful things to do when the soul aches.

I spent a few hours reading through Daisy's blog - copying some of her words to keep.....and last night I slept from 11pm til 6.30am! That is indeed a good sign...yes, there is the light at the end of the tunnel, I can see it and feel it.

I read "Apple Tree Lean Down" years ago. That is one of the books Gracie tore up this spring.

I am so glad you are slowly coming back into the light. It is good to pamper ourselves at certain times. I must look a magic hat for me. On Saturday when I was at the Treasures of the Sea and Earth, I bought five peach moonstones to put on my window sill, plus an amethyst because you had recommended that I get one. Plus I bought about 6 stones that I picked just for their colors. Yes, shame on me. Now I must look them up and hopefully all of them are beneficial/benevolent ones rather than negative ones!

I am here in Virginia with my clear quartz crystal and photos of loved ones. I feel more at home.

i couldn't find my rose quartz heart shaped one from my Diane Virtue angels deck. GAH!

I am glad you were able to get a good nighs sleep!

I am currently reading the Apple Tree Lean Down trilogy too. I am at the point in the story where Jack Mercybright gets married.
I think the herbal remedies are the best for conditions such as this, they have been used down the years and seem successful.
Sleep heals too, I am glad to hear you are getting more rest.

Time...time is a great healer. With time comes less pain, filled with remembering joy. Time can take us back and it can move us forward and in the present doing all the things you are doing....will ease the now. I hope that made sense.

I come bearing goodwill and lightheartedness! It is hard to imagine that it is cold and you are sipping hot chocolate! Here it is hot and I am sipping ice cold green tea! It isn't getting dark til 9pm! ..BTW: I love Bach flower essences! Both me and my pets use Rescue Remedy.

Robyn! You slept...that is amazing. Sleep does wonders.
A massage does wonders too. It is great that you can see the light at the end of the tunnel.
Heartsease, is one of my favorite candle fragrances from Yankee Candle. Do you get those in Australia? If not I will look for some here to send you.

Good girl! You're taking care of yourself. Daisy would be proud of you, I'm sure.


Sacred Suzie said...

Oh yay and good for you Robyn! I think you're doing an amazing job at taking care of yourself. I will have to learn how to follow your positive example, I have been doing quite the opposite lately. Thank you for the inspiration.
