A beautiful goodbye
This week I spent a day out in Oxfordshire at the funeral of a dear friend’s mother.
I was glad to have the chance to attend.
It was a beautiful service in a small village church.
The coffin was a woven basket, with a garland of white roses and greenery around it.
We sang simple hymns that reminded me of my childhood and recited the Lord’s Prayer.
There was a reading from Under Milk Wood by Dylan Thomas, a book I’ve not yet read. It reminded me how much I used to love reading classics. I’m going to look for a copy in my local Buddhist charity bookshop.
Counting my blessings
The funeral reminded me that the last four funerals I’ve attended were for my mother, my aunt, my grandmother, and my nan. All four were significant women in my life and influenced me in many ways. I wrote about my mother and my grandmothers on Mother’s Day this year. I still miss them.
Funerals are always sad, but I was glad to have the chance to spend time with my friend and her family and friends. It also gave me time to reflect on what’s important to me.
Funerals always make me count my blessings.
Homeopathy for sadness and loss
Bereavement and loss can be a trigger for different types of illnesses, even when it is seemingly unrelated.
- Low mood
These are not the only ways that we can be affected by grief.
Shock and unexpressed sadness affect our body as well as our mind; it can show up in your skin, immunity or hormonal health.
I know that my worst period of eczema came after a time when I lost something dear to me.
The year after my mum passed away I had a series of colds and the flu.

“Tracy is a kind and warm person and I really enjoyed our sessions where she showed empathy and understanding to anything I came up with and I found it very helpful. Her holistic approach did not only tackle my immediate symptoms but also worked at increasing my general well-being, something I can feel even months after the treatment.”
If you feel that grief or loss are affecting your well-being, you might like to consider homeopathy.
