grounding – protection – balance – being present – making dreams come true
My Spirit lives where the Earth kisses the Sky. Only here can I be present, awake and alive. With my feet buried in the fertile soil of life, in my hands I am holding the stars. My eyes are open, gazing at the horizon and my heart is embracing the world.
Materials used: natural semi precious stones with wood, brass and glass seed beads on memory wire (no clasp). In this bracelet I used picture jasper which is a very powerful grounding stone and added a few turquoise beads (natural and fine quality).
Stone and crystal meanings:
Picture Jasper is a grounding and harmonizing stone with a strong connection to the earth. It is said to promote feelings of responsibility towards the planet, encouraging a need to care for and protect it. Picture Jasper’s grounding energy can give you a strong sense of who you are, where you’ve been and where you are going. It is said to encourage creative visualization, creativity and business pursuits. It alleviates fear and helps to bring hidden thoughts and feelings to the surface, to be released.
Turquoise is perhaps the oldest stone in man’s history, the talisman of kings, shamans, and warriors. It is a stone of protection and carries great wisdom of basic truth within it. Because of its heavenly energy, turquoise is believed to provide a clear connection to the purity of natural elements. Turquoise can help one receive higher guidance and direction, as well as live life with more joy and happiness. Legend has it that the Native American Indians danced and rejoiced when the rains came. Their tears of joy mixed with the rain and seeped into Mother Earth to become Sky Stone – Turquoise. For nearly a thousand years, they have mined and fashioned Turquoise, using it to guard their burial sites. Indian priests wore it in ceremonies when calling upon the great spirit of the sky. Many honored Turquoise as the universal stone, believing their minds would become one with the universe when wearing it. Because of its ability to change colors, it was used in prophecy or divining. To the prehistoric Indian, Turquoise, worn on the body or used in ceremonies always signified the god of the sky alive in the earth.
