The dark time of the year is hard for many of us. Not only are there very few hours of light each day at this time, but it is also very dark and overcast with lots of wet weather, keeping us indoors here in the PNW.
We are coming up on the 2nd Anniversary of our dear Diana’s passing on the 20th. Losing a loved one in human form on Earth is a painful experience, but honoring them in both life and death is something that can help keep their spirit within you. Last night we got a visit from one of the women who helped John take care of Diana in her final days. She has become a dear friend to us, along with one of Diana’s close friends who was there with John and me when Diana passed. These women have become extended family and we hold them both very dear. It is always good to see them. I heard from both of them on the same day, which to me was no coincidence.
Diana has been on my mind more frequently recently. Memories of her and times we spent together. Her sharing her wisdom with me in her gentle and matter-of-fact way are things that have stuck with me, and I hold them dear like a treasured pearl growing more amazing with each passing year. While visiting with our friend and sitting around a little fire we had outside, I realized that we all have our struggles in this life, our paths that get us to intertwine, and to where we are presently. It’s how we let these struggles of the past sit within us that shape who we are to the outside world, whether we share these struggles or not.
Because we are nearing the end of what we now call a year, and because of the significance this time of year holds, holidays, family gatherings, Yule, Christmas, Hanukkah, Solstice celebrations, and for us remembering Diana Pepper for her bright light and the gift of the flower essences of Tree Frog Farm, I felt it appropriate to send this out and include some essences that I intuitively felt are needed most right now for the collective as we go into this sacred time of the year.
I hope these essences resonate with those of you whom it is most intended to reach. Love and Blessings to all of you during the Holidays. Know that we are holding space and light for each of you and wishing you a Blessed year ahead. These essences and our Yuletide Blessings Aromatherapy and Essence Mister will remain on Special until the end of the year.
With Love and Light,
Rhaychell and Stu – Tree Frog Farm Essence
