softly, gently

Softly, Gently bracelet...

Be gentle with yourself. You are a child of the universe, no less than the trees and the stars. In the noisy confusion of life, keep peace in your soul.”    - Max Ehrmann

Self-care is the theme of this bracelet. Learning to treat yourself with a deep kindness and love.

The bracelet contains Amethyst (stimulates intuitive ability and connection to the spiritual realms and your higher spiritual guidance, also a stone of purification, a “violet flame” stone which carries energy that helps clear karmic baggage); Sugilite (a preeminent stone of healing and purification, an energetic cleanser, it also provides exceptional protection against negative energy, it’s a stone connected to the realm of dreams, symbols, and spiritual vision -- a doorway into awakened Inner Vision); Lapis Lazuli (helps to connect to your spiritual guidance and your intuitive capacity, so you always know what you most deeply need from yourself in any given moment); Turquoise (deep wisdom that comes from the integration of the totality of your life experiences, truth, powerful healing); Peruvian Blue Opal (calm, soothing, nurturing); Apatite (a wonderful stone to help become aware of the deeply rooted patterns you carry on a soul level, so that you can clear past influence from this); Chrysoprase (prosperity, abundance, the courage to follow through, and a balancer of yin/yang energies); Chrysacolla (carries divine feminine energy, and is a powerful communication stone, it teaches the combination of gentleness and power, encouraging one to speak one’s highest knowledge, owning the value of one’s experiences, knowledge and contribution); Angelite (traditionally known as a stone that helps to facilitate the communication with our spiritual guidance, and with our higher self, it helps raise your state of conscious awareness, and helps to transmute fear, and creates a deep sense of peace and calm within); and freshwater Pearl (healing to the emotions and connected to the gentle feminine energy of the moon). It also contains a number of sterling silver beads, spacers and rings, as well as 2 handmade rings in fine grade silver by the Hill Tribe people in Thailand.

You can’t expect people around you to respect your needs, until you learn to respect them yourself, until you learn to be truly kind to yourself, to take care of your own deepest needs, and to hold your own heart softly, gently. Remember that until you truly love yourself, you aren’t capable of truly loving anyone, because you don’t really know what love (apart from “need”) is until then. So let this bracelet be a reminder to be gentle with yourself.
