When we grieve the death of a loved one, often we harbor our pain inside and this can do harm to ourselves physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. The job of these journals is to lift those feelings from us to these pages to release all you are dealing with and increase your peace.
In The Mary Mac Show Journal Collection, we offer 4 unique journals for those dealing with grief, loss, death, dying and bereavement.
Our first, ‘my journal’, helps you record your feelings after any type of loss or anticipated loss.
Our second is ‘my grief journal’ which helps you record your journey after the death of a significant person in your life.
The third is ‘my gratitude journal’ which encourages you, as I do in my podcast The Mary Mac Show, to write five things each evening which you are grateful for as well as to help you develop your positive vision for your life.
And our fourth is ‘my remembrance journal’ which gives you a place to add dreams, daydreams, thoughts, prayers, photos, etc. of your special loved one who is no longer with you.
Each group of four journals will have the same cover so you can order a complete set.
But other covers are also available and you might wish to mix and match. And they are wonderful gifts and presents for those struggling with their grief and loss.
In Episode 172, we discuss the love of a grandparent and how their devotion to us is rare and sacred. And if they raised you because your parents couldn’t, they are our heroes.
If you had the good fortune to be surrounded and loved by grandparents in your lifetime, however brief or long, you will know how special that bond or relationship was.
Sometimes they would be geographically nearby, sometimes they had time to devote to you, maybe even take you to their homes for the weekends or longer.
Sometimes you’d only get to appreciate them during holidays and vacations.
And if you were lucky they’d think you were the best thing ever and shower you with love and affection.
The relationship was a bond that you had with no other.
And if your grandparent or grandparents took you in when your own parents were unable to provide for you, you were additionally blessed when they raised you as their own.
When a grandparent/s decides that you are more valuable to them than retiring or spending their latter year resting and having that time for themselves, you know that you are extremely special. Doing that when your parents couldn’t or wouldn’t, was a selfless act on their part.
They became your heroes.
In this episode, I indulge in sharing my experiences with my three grandparents and to this day, I miss them all. This past week on March 14th was the anniversary of my grandma’s death – 28 years ago.
We had a special bond, completely different than my parents and in some ways far superior.
Leave a comment below to share what your grandparents meant to you and your grieving process after their death.
Blessings to You.
Additional Notes – Some things that will help along this journey to ease the pain:
If you are having an especially difficult time emotionally, I recommend you speak with a specialist at a hotline near you. Here you will find hotlines all around the world. Trained counselors are there to listen, free of charge, to what’s going on with you. Take advantage of their great kindness. Vent with an objective individual. You don’t have to be ‘suicidal’ to call them, but if you are, that’s the best place to call. Don’t hestitate!
For parents and teens, there is an amazing resource where you can email or text counselors for help at The Boys Town National Hotline! Outstanding assistance for your children and you. You can also dial 988 for assistance.
Visit Julie’s EFT episodes on grief and she will teach you the Emotional Freedom Technique. Her videos calm your spirit and help you release emotional and physical pain as you move forward.
You can order your Bach’s Rescue Remedy from most health food stores, either in person or online. Remember, these do have alcohol in them.
I use the Rescue Remedy 20ml drops but they have spray and other versions which might work better for you. And…they also have products to calm pets, too.
*To find a homeopathic doctor, visit here or here. Many offer phone consultations if you cannot find one in your area. They work with patients around the globe. You can also research in your area of the world.

In Episode 165, we are honored to spend time with Dana Ullman, the renowned homeopathic expert, who teaches us how remedies help those grieving a loved one’s death.
Homeopathy is practiced worldwide by millions of people including royalty (Queen Elizabeth II), heads of state, presidents, religious leaders, sports superstars, corporate leaders, philanthropists (Mother Teresa), musicians, actors, women rights leaders, actors, even Russian Czars.
Years ago we had homeopathic hospitals in the United States and many used their remedies before reaching out to pharmaceuticals to help their ailments.
As allopathic drugs tend to suppress the issue, homeopathic remedies look to get to the root cause and cure it.
Homeopathic doctors and practitioners seek to dig deep and look for just the right remedy to help with a person’s emotional, physical and mental issues all at the same time.
If you are struggling with something that traditional doctors cannot help with, or if you want to live a healthier lifestyle, please connect with Dana Ullman in the contact area of his website.
In Episode 163, we continue to discuss how simplifying our surroundings and the way we live our life can lead to a calmer everyday existence while we are working through our grieving process.
So often when we are grieving a special individual in our lives, we don’t take the time to consider how we can simplify things so we don’t feel so overwhelmed.
In this episode we look at additional ways to decrease our tasks and pressure. It helps us to think through this process and minimize our lifestyle so we release additional challenges that are not needed.
