Some days, I just need to find my Inner Child again and let her play.
My heart has been very heavy in the last couple weeks, I did not have anything positive to create so I just did nothing. However, it could not go on forever. I have noticed that in the past, my best Nixies were created out of pain. Should I seek them out so they could help me and release some of the suffering ?
This time though, painting was out of the equation (I might end up deciding to share with you my current “work in progress” paintings), my work is way too dark. So I decided to go back to my childhood activity: making bracelets ! Jewelry has a special place in my heart: I call it Sacred Adornment. I choose very carefully what I will wear for the day. I often layer them, as in the photo there. Gemstones, symbols, colors… each has a purpose and a meaning.
You can infuse your work with intention and make it magical.
It’s as easy as repeating a mantra of your choice while adding each bead. It can only be a word, don’t over complicate it (I usually do !). When painting, or in my art journal, I hide symbols and/or words. My bracelets look simple, et really they DO are simple, but they have this little something others don’t.
When a project is done, if it is something I intend to sell or gift, I will charge it with Reiki and smudge it before sending it to its new home.
I firmly believe that everything is and holds energy. And when I am creating, I infuse what I do with intention. It’s essential in my work and I am currently teaching this basic notion to my daughters. Because once you are aware that even your thoughts are energy, I find it easier to shift the ones you don’t need to replace them into something else…
Do you make jewelry ?
