Hello Hello,I wrote this piece back in 2019 and it is still one of my favorites to date!!! I just decided to curate a video sharing this concept on tik tok too. Meditation is going deep within yourself as a micro concept of you to the universe. Prayer is making your pitch to the universe and macro as you are reaching outside of yourself. The power is in and around you to make change. Never stop believing."Along my spiritual journey I am quenching my thirst for enlightenment by hydrating my soul with meditation and prayer. I have been incorporating rituals and practices to strengthen my spiritual and emotional muscles. Incorporating is an interesting word to think about... the etymology contains 'corp' which is body - so we are literally putting something into our body or forming a new body. When we practice and incorporate metaphysical activity magic gets imbedded into our physical beings. Meditation and prayer are both energetic practices. Our goal is to be compensated for the energy we put out there so invest in yourself and you will be energetically prosperous. Prayer and meditation are personal ways to transcend yourself, your environment and circumstances. Meditation is the Micro concept and Prayer is the Macro. Meditating is micro as it is within us, we are looking inward. Meditation is a personal practice that slows our mind down, resets our nervous system, uses breath work to calm us. The goal of meditation is to look within and achieve a state of mind that allows us to truly see. Meditation brings you to a relaxed state of being to be more balanced, rational and content. It is doing our deep inner work on ourselves to analyze what needs to be done in the big picture. We observe and envision during this practice. It is passive as we watch the movie of our thoughts and feel our own energy. After we are done we reflect on our observations and take action with a clearer frame of mind. Prayer is macro in the sense that we are looking outside of ourselves and connecting to something bigger. Prayer is a profound way to communicate with a higher state of consciousness whether it is g-d or the universe. We are connecting with the divine spirit, the greatness of nature and the power of positive energy. Prayer can consist of conversation, expression of gratitude, connecting with ancient texts, religion, the choices are abundant. Prayer is very active we must be fully engaged and invested in making our pitch to the universe. Being raised closely exposed to religion I have always been fascinated by the ancient wisdom within prayer. It is my hope that you can discover your own path to looking both inward and outward. Implement exercising a strong sense of spirit through meditation and prayer. May you achieve energetic tranquility and fulfill the needs of your soul!" Sending Love and Light your way, Ariana
Making the hamsa motif of our dreams for protection and elegance. We merged a fashion history ladylike hand aesthetic with the more ethnic bohemian hamsa. Hamsas are symbolic and iconic for good reason! Hands are known symbols for giving, helping hand, strength, and to convey stopping what does not serve us.Concentric circles of healing crystals here we come! I think these would be an amazing addition for a necklace and earrings! the casting is 2" we used rough diamonds, mini herkimer diamonds and crushed healing crystals to create the color eye (black tourmaline, apatite, blue calcite and sodalite). We can make the necklace long or short as you prefer! Comes as 16” necklace with extender if you would like it longer make a note on your order. This necklace is a labor of love every crystal is hand crushed and placed into this pattern. It entails precise and detailed workmanship. Each necklace takes a lot of time and care to create. Each and every small stone is set into the color organization and pattern with a tweezer.
