Passion, Power, Purpose

I believe that at some level each of us desires to live our lives with passion, power and purpose.  Those 3 little words really hold a charge and with them a desire to step up and bring every facet of our lives into alignment with our own passion and purpose.

One of my many passions is stones.

It’s one that I have been exploring and embracing for as long as I can remember.  But it wasn’t until I committed to creating gemstone jewelry that I began to feel the power of their transformation.

For the past several months I have been taking time to connect with each of the unique stone types in my collection…to photograph it, listen to its message, and then share that message.  It’s been powerful.  I have learned so much and this little journey has transformed how I work with stones.

My most recent study has been pyrite.  This heavy little stone packs quite the punch.  When I wear it I feel like my internal battery is charged.  I’m focused, on task and I flow from one activity to the next with minimal distraction…it’s like a cure for my creative spirit that often feels a bit add.

Not only does it keep me focused, but it seems to be a master manifestor.  Yes, I did actually say that.  Pyrite is a master manifestor.  Every time I place this stone on my wrist I become clear about my wants, desires and dreams…and not only that…my experience of life is coming into alignment with those desires.  It is incredibly refreshing.

I’m loving this stone and I am so excited to share the latest addition to the Journey Jewels collections:  Passion, Power, & Purpose bracelets….Shop Now
