You do not need your trinkets, your talismans, your toys to feel good.  They are reminders … visual objects that hold meaning for you.  They trigger thoughts which hold meaning for you.  These, in turn, engender feelings … emotions … states of being which go up and down.  Do you see now why it is not so important to behold or hold an object to receive the benefit?  This holds true for those loved ones you can no longer hold.  At deeper levels there are no solid objects.  At deeper levels all that exists is experience, so if you cannot hold something or someone to which you have ascribed great meaning, join them in the head and heart.  At the deeper levels of being this is the same experience. 

You are so very loved.
