My New Year’s Crystal Ritual

December 31, 2012

I stopped making New Year’s resolutions years ago. They just don’t work well for me. We begin the New Year filled with hope and make resolutions we know we won’t or can’t keep. New Years resolutions have always felt more like an empty wish than setting a true goal or intention. What I love to do however are New Year Rituals. There is such power in a ritual, creating a sacred space filled with symbolism and intention. A ritual can be as simple as stopping for a moment of silence and prayer before we eat our food. Or taking a moment to light a candle and offer out a blessing to someone we love. Or sending out gratitude to the new day as the sun rises to greet us each morning. Some rituals are steeped in spiritual tradition, carried out by many who came before us. The power of ritual […]

Ventifactos, also known as Bell Stones from Argentina

September 24, 2012

Here are some really interesting stones! Ventifactos, also known as Bell Stones are from Argentina. They are a recent discovery made by one of my long time Crystal Dealers, who personally hand picks these unique forms of Basalt. These black stones are  naturally sculpted by the wind and sand. They are volcanic Basalt, containing, Iron, Nickle and Titanium. Each one is uniquely shaped. During my recent buying trip to the Denver Gem Show, I popped into Seann’s room to discover these exciting new stones. I was immediately intrigued by these unusual black stones. As Seann explained to me where and how these volcanic stones are found, I became even more interested in them. Then he picked up a pair and struck them together. When hit together they make a clean, deep tone, that resonated all throughout my body. This sound is described as primeval music which naturally supports healing energy […]

Denver Gem Show 2012 Part Two: the unpacking

September 23, 2012

  This year’s Denver Gem Show was another fabulous year, with all of the same dealers and several new ones to explore. I found some great new stones this year, which always makes the show worth going to. I never know just what l’ll find or what will entice me. This year was no exception in fine quality crystals, gemstones, minerals, beads and jewelry. I came home with boxes and boxes of glorious new treasures from Mother Earth.   It takes days and days to unpack all the new stones. This year I set up several tables outdoors on my deck and laid out and unpacked all the goodies. The stones enjoy being outside in the sunlight, and so do I. It’s a slow process, sorting, organizing, pricing and admiring these natural beauties. So many of the new stones are from countries all around the world. They come packed in […]

Namaste: Its Meaning and Origin

September 4, 2012

You’ve heard the word Namaste before, maybe in your Yoga Class. But do you know what it means and where it comes from? I often use Namaste in my Yoga Jewelry designs, so I decided to do a little research to find out its origins and meaning. Namaste, pronounced ” na-ma-stay” is both a spoken expression and a symbolic gesture that people use when greeting one another or in parting. The word comes from the Sanskrit and translates as “I bow to you”. According to wikipedia, namah means bow, te means to you. Namaste is commonly translated in several ways. I most often hear it expressed as “the divine light in me honors the divine light in you”, “the God within me greets the God within you” or “the spirit in me meets the same spirit in you”. When used as a hand gesture the palms of the hands come together over […]
