Buddha’s Brain


Today I began reading the widely-acclaimed book, Buddha’s Brain, which explains the anxiety/stress reaction in masterful detail and in a way I can understand. I now agree that, “pain is inevitable, but suffering is optional.” I have practiced and lead meditation for years, but seeing the positive neurological effects in black and white has me reeling! I highly advise you to venture into the science of meditation.  It’s absolutely life-changing!


Jewels that are tools


My first official jewelry creation is a wire-wrapped African turquoise energetic gemstone pendant! What are the attributes of this stone? I thought you’d never ask!

African Turquoise brings encouragement for growth, development and positive change within oneself. It brings structure, balance and prosperity and is a stone that hands over a key to New Life with its offerings.  This is a stone that awakens the soul to its intended purpose; encouraging the being to make positive impressions while gaining and giving positive wisdom.

I love gemstone work in meditation as well as jewelry-making. I can’t wait to make my next new creation! When we pursue our passions, we can’t help but live life bursting with joy!
