Welcome to the month of September! This month holds a lot of transition for most of us. Think about it; what other month holds so much change: in routine, in weather, within your family dynamic?
Rather than resist, embrace this beautiful opportunity to change it up for yourself! Bring on some emotional healing, some new thoughts to break habits, to open up, to look inside and cleanse yourself inside out. Quoting the great, late Wayne Dyer, "Peace is the result of retraining your mind to process your life as it is, rather than as you think is should be." The words emotional healing can scare away many of us because it often means unpeeling your feelings like an onion, diving into deeper places which you may have never uncovered or even realized were present. But this is the work your hear yoga teachers mentioning. We deepen our yoga practice with it. We face what is here, what is now, what is in front of us knocking at the door. Finding and removing the emotional stuck stuff can bring the greatest rewards in your life, bringing you a sense of lightness and freedom. Some pain can be dropped quickly and some can take years to fully release. There really is no right or wrong, and there certainly is no timetable involved.
The beautiful semi-precious stone, Green Amethyst (yes there is a green form!) is lovely to wear during this time of transition and just happens to look beautiful with autumn's color scheme.
GREEN AMETHYST (Prasiolite)-Silicon dioxide mineral, member of Quartz family
Key Words: Heart Awakening, Self-Acceptance, Compassion for self and others
Chakras: Heart (4th), Crown (7th), Third Eye (6th), Solar Plexus (3rd)
Emotional: Green Amethyst is a bridge between the lower chakras (more physical life concerns) and higher chakras (higher, spiritual existence). It is a heart chakra stone, so it will raise inner vision, and allow the heart to rule both thoughts and actions in life. It ultimately awakens the heart to receive love, share love, and is a "Stone of Namaste", reminding us to recognize Divine Spirit in all living things.
Physical: Aids digestion, heart issues, may help with eating disorders
Take time to feel the fresh cooling air of Autumn; breath it all in. This is your time to waken and find that what you seek, may be already seeking you.
See all my jewelry containing Green Amethyst here.
Ever since I can remember I have worn and loved jewelry. I have pictures of myself at four dripping in my mother’s long beads and clip on earrings. Then while making jewelry as an adult, I began to wonder about the beautiful beads I was using… stones and crystals found in the earth- the colors, the swirls- the weight, characteristics. For years I have remained curious and open to this concept and do believe in potential in wearing and using certain stones and crystals for added health benefits. But just like astrology, I take it as another tool in my toolbox, not someone to depend on entirely for major decision making, but to enhance my sense of well-being and with the world and nature which surround me. I hope my blogs may educate you and peak your interest, and if nothing else, inspire you, to pick stones which call to you. and to wear more of the jewelry you love.
