Acknowledging the human condition with a thoughtful gift

May 30, 2017

For a customer who wanted thoughtful gifts for loved ones in need.

Loss and grief are part of the human condition.

So is the need to heal.

That’s what a customer said as she ordered the sets above from my website, A Healing Spirit, saying that the products make thoughtful and lovely gifts for those in need.

The Releasing Grief Affirmation cards and the Guided Journal through Grief are a set she’s giving to a friend who’s lost a loved one. The additional grief deck is for another friend.

She is a healer, herself, and plans to give a set of the Guided Journal for Healing and Healing Affirmation deck to someone who is dealing with a disease.

I love a customer who gets that the mind/body connection is an important part of healing from disease and coping with grief.

Is there someone in your life who would appreciate a beautiful set for healing or coping with grief?  Visit A Healing Spirit’s Affirmation Deck page HERE, the Guided Journals page HERE

or go straight to Amazon and search for A Healing Spirit Cassara and all four products will come up for you to shop.

Thank you.

    Is this set specific to a certain religion? Or can it be given to people of different faiths? very cool idea.

  51. Annemarie LeBlanc says:

    This is really going to show the recipient how much you care for them. Healing from grief and emotional pain is not easy and takes a long time. A guided journal will be great to take them out of their sadness.

  52. This is a really great idea! Theres nothing like giving support in peoples time of need! Xx-Doran

    Cards with encouraging messages really adds a good feeling to someone who is recovering from any misfortunes, sickness or problems. Indeed giving this kind of present will somehow help to ease the pain they are feeling.
