What we are thankful for

I have asked my friends to continue giving me things that thy are thankful for. In times like these it is easy to focus on all the problems in the world. Changing our focus to the things that we are have and living in an attitude of gratitude can help us to go through tough times. Here are what my friends are grateful for.

Create Peace

Create Peace

We must create peace within ourselves. We have the ability to do this each day by experiencing joy. We have the power to look at things through peaceful eyes rather than angry eyes. Try the next time you are angry with someone, stopping and thinking through the situation with love not anger or hate. Be friendly to a stranger by simply smiling through a heart filled with peace and joy.

If you look at the symbol it is made with three curves, a semi-circle and a small dot. The bottom curve is said to represent the waking state. This can also relate to our material world. The upper curve represents deep sleep and the right curve represents dream. The dot is said to symbolize the absolute and illuminates the other states.

OM can be thought of as universal music. Many people refer to it as the symbol of the absolute. OM represents what is spiritual. Since God, and spiritualism of any sort can not be described in words it can be described in the symbol OM. The OM can represent the Infinite and very essence of the Universe itself. For those who practice Hinduism and Buddhism it is a very important symbol. Many other religious practices use it as well. In our modern culture it has become important to many. In the Western culture it often means to some Peace.

OM is often a symbol that is used in guiding meditations connecting, man, God and the universe. While we meditate if we chant OM it can create a vibration that will help us to quiet our mind and connect with the universe. It is difficult to think while you chant OM. If you do start having thoughts the sound will stop. The sound is divine as it comes from within ourselves.

Trunk Show

I have been lucky enough to be working with a new Yoga studio in town. Grace Yoga opened in August and is now carrying my line of jewelry. To celebrate we are going to be having a trunk show this Friday September 5th. It will run from 6 to 9 and there will be goodies to eat as well as my full line of jewelry to look at in a very relaxed setting. There will also be my two favorite yoga teacher there Iffett and Arlene. They would be glad to show you the studio and answer any yoga related questions that you might have.

I have been very busy with Art Shows and have not had a chance to write much. I am currently working on my Yoga line. One of my favorite words is Namaste. I love the fact that it means we honor the light within someone. I created a new ring that is free form in nature but works well to show the words. I think this could make a lovely wedding ring design for someone if they were looking for a special set of wedding rings for those that are spiritual in design. However, I really like bands of all styles. This ring will probably be one of the cornerstones of my Yoga Line.
