…the immortal words of Elizabeth Taylor.
I’ve been meaning to share with you something that has been very near to my heart these days. The transition to motherhood has been an unfolding journey, one that continuously evolves into something new. Thank you all for baring with me, I know things have been interesting around here. Back while I was pregnant, I was very adamant that my pregnancy be calm and serene. For me, it was a magical time and my spiritual side really flourished. I practiced yoga, spent a lot of time in nature, journaled my butt off (I wrote Blissful Living Journal during this time) I was deep into my love of crystals and I surrounded myself with them, I carried them around, wore them as jewelry and gave them as gifts.
Fast forward to a few months ago, I have been in a place where I am highly in tune with my intuition. With little time for myself and my own pursuits, I spend my free time nurturing the things that light me up. For me, time with my friends keeps me sane, especially as a new mom. I’ve been in that place where connections, good friendships and soul conversations are what really feed me.
I was with some girlfriends at a beading party and began to really find a side of myself I hadn’t ever really existed much before. Of course, my love of crystals is within me, but I found myself helping other women find out what crystals they needed, select which ones were right for them and then explain how they could help and heal them. I found myself thriving in this role. As we all sat around the table, next to the fireplace, with music, food, wine and a warm fire going, stories were shared and hearts were full. These nights became more and more and our jewelry making parties were a new time we cherished.
I found myself really loving the art of beading and jewelry making. Being the Capricorn that I am, I took it upon myself to visit some jewelry stores and learn more. I wanted to learn how to make things that I really wanted to wear. I wanted to add more glamour to my spiritually focused jewelry. I had a serendipitous encounter with a local jeweler who taught me so much. From there I began making magic. Next thing you know, I was out and about wearing some of my new crystal bracelets and a woman asked to buy them right off of me. That was my first sale. Because I had just launched Blissful Living Co. online shop, it was a natural fit to put the jewels on the site for sale, too. Now, i can’t stop.
It’s an interesting feeling when you come across a passion or something that leads you to what feels like your purpose. I want to inspire, educate and encourage women to integrate spirituality into their glamorous lives so that they feel alive, vibrant, powerful and fully loved. This is what my soul longs to do. This is what feels love feels like to me and I really want to honor that. Hence, a beautiful love affair with spiritually infused jewelry. They are made with these intentions behind them. Each one has a specific energy and focused intention associated with it.
Feel free to take a look at them and see if any of them speak to you….
