Tigers Eye Affirmation: I am balanced.

Tigers Eye has a beautiful layered look of vibrant yellow/gold, browns, and black. It’s a suitable color combination for the affirmation “I am balanced”.

To me balancing is about routine that allows for a variety of activities throughout the day: physical, spiritual, work, and joyful/relaxing time. I find that if I get certain activities done in the morning then the rest of my day is balanced. I have the privilege of time to parse my day that way.

However, I am still looking for a good time to play drums… it’s loud enough to annoy others in the house and I have not included it in my morning routine yet. Any advice is welcome!

Moonstone: I embrace the cycles of life.

The moon changes everyday and helps move the water around us. The cycles of life for me are childhood, adult; life and death. I’m a scorpio so we’re known to be into that kind of thing.

Moonstone shows the beauty of changes.

Black Tourmaline: I am energetically cleansed and centered.

When we cleanse with water by bathing our aura’s energy gets cleansed too. If we go further and meditate, use incense, candles, focus on releasing our energetic patterns, we can get centered. It’s easier to be our ourselves. I like to light a candle and burn some palo santo every morning as part of getting centered.

Black Tourmaline is known to help with taking negative energy and transmuting it into positive vibes. Pretty awesome.

Ruby: I awaken my kundalini energy.

Happy Valentine’s Day!

What is Kundalini energy? From what I understand so far…It is a Hindu word that means to awaken your chakras from the base chakra up into the crown chakra! There is a goddess or serpent asleep that can awaken and clear it’s way up all of the chakras to the crown to energize the body for a wonderful feeling! There are other cultures that have a similar word such as the Christian “Pentecostal Fire”.

Kundalini can be achieved through spiritual practices such as yoga and meditation.

May you feel alert and happy TODAY!

Calcite: I am open to creativity.

What a wonderful world where we can be creative at anytime.

So fun and the possibilities seem endless. Even using the internet and posting things is so limitless.

I was really happy when I listened to the Vulnerability by Brene Brown media (Ted Talks and audio via radio shows). She ended one of the series by encouraging people to find their creative love, making candles was her example. Something artsy that makes you feel good. Wow that sure hit home for me and in a way gave me permission to do my arts and crafts in addition to the more serious work I do (audio engineering).

Here’s Calcite pictures I found today. This stone is known to encourage spontaneity and creativity. I think the two things go hand in hand.

Gem Artists Wanted

I would love to share other artists’ work on this blog’s Gem of the Day (message me for consideration).
Case in point: today I met a jewelry artist, Matias Brustle, and a friend bought a Malachite ring from him. It’s interesting because everyday for 3 days I have been pulling the Malachite card from my Deck of Gemstone Cards (Crystal Ally Nahisha Ahsain’s Cards). I asked Matias if he’d like to have his work displayed on my social media, and he said yes.
