The Death & Grief Spread

...helps the bereaved to come to terms with the death of another. By doing so...can relive once again a small piece of the time shared and thus be freed from the stasis of grief.


This spread is from The Giant Book of Card Divination, Course of Life-Themes of Life.

"Death leaves a gap with the bereaved; it may be more than this; It may be a wound, infinitely great pain, or even relief, especially if the deceased had to suffer a great deal before departing. ... Nevertheless, the greatest thing that we can do to honor our beloved is to take up something that he or she has given us...for which the deceased stood keeps that part of him or her alive in us. ...Questions to attuning yourself; What have I not said yet? What still needs to be completed? ...What do I need to learn now?
