Mantra Monday 3.6.2017

Today’s Mantra Monday plays on last week’s affirmation pretty well : “I release anything that doesn’t serve me” (if you missed last week’s mantra, you can check it out here).

Ask yourself the question “What am I keeping around that does not serve me?” Look around you? Try and spot 3 things in the room right now. I can tell you from where I am sitting, there is a coffee cup that has been sitting here since yesterday, I have a mountain of receipts that I emptied out from my purse this morning just sitting here and I can spot a few empty bottles of essential oils that I will probably never need. And just like that I cleared a little space in my environment. Now, if I am so pressed, I’m sure I can go into my newsfeed on FB and clear out groups and acquaintances that I really don’t need to hold space for. They clog up my feed and really serve more of an unnecessary distraction.

Release it and clear it. Old wounds and memories as well. They help mold us into who we are, but we don’t need to carry this load daily. Meditate over whatever situation you feel you are holding on to so tight and release it. Burning Palo Santo during meditation helps clear up blockages that you hold in your chakras too, so if you have some, give it a try. Repeating this mantra during meditation can also assist your brain to subconsciously work in moving past some of these blockages. This is one reason I love Mala necklaces with 108 beads, they help keep count and allows me to hit that magic number (Why is 108 a magic number? Check out this link for more info).

I hope these past couple of weeks helps you in releasing what no longer serves you.

Thank you Paper Yarn Moon for putting our mantra’s into art.

Mantra Monday 2.27.2017

Good Morning to you all and Happy Monday. As you know, its our Mantra Monday and I cannot wait to share it with you.

This is a great one and one I have been working on this past month and quite possibly the next. It’s all about letting things go that no longer serve me. Its all about quitting cords and ties that are of zero benefit to you and quite possibly even deplete you.

Cutting ties is sometimes easier said than done. Trust me, I am the queen of holding on to things, from clothes that I swear I will fit into by summer, to emails from retailers that have discount codes that I maybe will use later, acquaintances on FB that I really don’t talk to, and I also may be guilty of holding on to a LOT of crystals (but I’m not counting those…you can’t have too many crystals!)

But serisoulsy, do I need to hold on to so many friends on FB? Some even include ex boyfriends that I remained friendly with but literally NEVER talked to, not even the occasional like on the picture. So why do I have these people? Because sometimes I have trouble letting go. Why? I really don’t know. Perhaps it has to do with my childhood and growing up poor. I’m not sure but I do know that it is time to let go. Remove the junk, all the extra that no longer serve me. Get rid of clothes that I no longer wear and the biggest one is to STOP holding space for people that don’t deserve it because it brings down on your own vibrations. We have to remember to love ourselves.

So, what is our Mantra this week? “The more I let go, the better I feel” and boy do you ever. Release all the old that doesn’t serve you and stop holding space for the junk.

One thing you can do for those strong emotional cords that connect you to people you no longer wish to be attached to (trust me, the connection works both ways), imagine a physical cord connecting you and this person and imagine giant scissors cutting these cords and releasing this bond. If you need to physically use your fingers and pretend to cut (I do this), do it! Once you are done, thank the universe AND yourself and take a moment for yourself to replenish. I personally like to take a shower or bath and then have a nice cup of tea, show myself a little love.

As always, thank you Diana over at PaperYarnMoon for the beautiful art work.

 

Mantra Monday 2.20.2017

It’s Monday again (man the week flies when you are running around spreading L-O-V-E)

This week flows right into last weeks mantra and in addition, it I believe it helps remove those blocks of self doubt and low-self esteem. In addition, it aides in opening up our selves for love from others. Whatever you may feel you need in your life, this affirmation is wonderful.

“I am deserving and worthy of Love”, and you absolutely are. We all deserve to be loved AND most importantly to love ourselves, completely and truly. You are perfect and enough just the way you are. Also, if no one has told you today, “I love you!”

Thank you Didi at PaperYarnMoon for the beautiful image.

Mantra Monday 2.13.2017

Beautiful Day to all you Beautiful Souls.

It’s Monday you know for us Monday’s mean “Mantra Monday”. I do love our Mondays.

With Valentine’s Day creeping slowly creeping up on us (enter horror shriek here), I wanted to take a moment to remind ourselves, not only to spread love, but to love ourselves too.

For  many of us, it is so gratifying to send love to those we love, to shower them with gifts, love an affection, but we often times forget about ourselves. We have to remember that if our cups our empty, we cannot fill anothers, so take this week to LOVE yourself. Honor yourself and fill your cup.

Therefore, our mantra for this week is “I honor myself and my needs”.

I encourage you to take all the time you need to make sure your needs are met. Don’t go outside of yourself either by expecting your significant other to buy you flowers, simply go out and buy them yourself. Want a gift, gift it yourself.(Check out our stuff too :-D) . Don’t limit yourself to materials things either, a long bath with essential oils, an few hours with your nose in your book or a whole day dedicated to painting, music, or just simply an entire day of binge watching Netflix. Whatever you feel will fill you up, go do it. You have permission from your higher self and the universe looks forward to it.

Thank you Didi over at PaperYarnMoon for always putting our words into art.


Love and Light always,

Michelle

Mantra Monday 2.6.2017

Good Morning my beautiful souls. As you may have noticed, our Mantra Monday is a bit late this week. **Warning, this blog post is going to get REAL**.

It’s been a pretty hectic week for me personally as I try to balance my home life and business life. I feel sometimes that as I am drowning in laundry, dishes and dog poop (for some reason my doggies have decided to take the living room as their personal toilet) and in between homeschooling my 4 year old (which she is currently practicing writing her letters while I type this) and then somehow remembering to love myself all while showing love to everyone else, sometimes my cup runs dry, so flipping dry. Oh, and did I forget to mention I am working on my official Crystal Reiki Master/Teacher certification. And of course, I worry, I worry how I will be able to get new supplies in when I can’t find the time to post up what I have to sell. Oh yeah, we also moved about a month ago to a new home and you already know the amount of boxes in our home is insane!

Compared to other problems, my shit is easy. I am grateful for the life I live and what I am able to do, but it doesn’t take away that it is tiresome and exhausting at times and that is okay. I always trust that the universe will provide exactly what I need when I need it and this is my affirmation for the week. ” Everything I need comes to me at Exactly the Right Time”.

The universe has definitely blessed me this week with an unexpected financial gift which I am so grateful for and just like that, the supplies that needed to be purchased were ordered. I know its difficult to trust that what you need will be provided for and learning to trust is a challenge in itself but I invite you to give it a try this week and put it out into the universe and ask for exactly what you need.

Now, Ill be off working on some more gooodies while I wait for the dryer and my daughter finishes working on her alphabet.

Thank you Didi over at PaperYarnMoon for our picture this week.

Love and Light always,

Michelle 

 

Mantra Monday 1.30.2017

This week’s Mantra is very special to me and I use it regularly. It’s very simple yet, for me, extremely effective. I have shared it with family and friends and I have yet to hear it hasn’t worked for them. The Affirmation is “I am a Love and Money Magnet”.

As a small business owner, mother, and overall human who lives on this planet, unfortunately, money is very important in order to move forward. I know there always talk on how “money is the root of all evil” or ” money doesn’t buy happiness”…yes, it doesn’t buy happiness but it is, in my opinion, essential. I don’t hate money, I love money and what I can do with money, like help those around me, support my family, continue my business. I feel that if we removed this fear or negativity that comes with financial abundance, we can help remove our own blocks we have with money, thus allowing the universe to let it flow to us more freely. Money is not bad, money helps us achieve our goals. Until we live in a society where I can exchange one of my pieces for a new tire for my car, or my neighbor can exchange tech help for a groceries, then I will positively accept all financial abundance the universe has flowing my way.

And of course, love is always a good thing to have in our lives and I love love. I love people who embrace love and just love everything around them, even the small things. Like, I love the way fresh bread smells, I love the sound of the birds outside my window in the morning, I love they way my husband charges my toothbrush when I forget. I also love those who disagree with me, their opinions and positions allow me to reflect on my own and why I value some things over others.

I invite you to repeat this affirmation daily. Say it every night before going to bed until you fall asleep or use your Mala Necklace to count it out and let me know how it works for you. Believeing and repeating this mantra has brought many blessings into my life and it is hands down, my favorite when it comes to financial abundance.

Thank you Didi over at PaperYarnMoon for always putting our affirmations into a beautiful picture. Feel free to share or save. 

Many Blessings Always.

Namaste.

Mantra Monday 1.23.2017

This weeks Mantra seems simple enough but definitely a difficult one for many of us to accept. For whatever the reason, many of us sometimes, for lack of a better term, get stuck on a sort of daily routine and literally forget to stop and keep space for ourselves.

I am very blessed to be a part of a strong female tribe and just last week, I was reminded to cut the chords that no longer serve me and hold space for the most important person in my life….me.  If I am not 100% functional and at my best, I am doing a disservice to those that need me the most, for example my family.

One of the ways I honor myself, is by allowing and accepting all the blessings the universe has coming my way. I open myself of to the gifts that , not only I am manifesting, but that my higher self has called for my own good. I am shifting myself into a higher vibrational place and “I accept all the blessings that are coming my way”. That is my mantra for the week! Use your Mala Necklace, use it during meditation or simply say it over and over until you fall asleep at night. Open yourself and be grateful for all the blessings you have and will have.

For this mantra/affirmation, I suggest using your clear Quartz. Meditate with your piece and keep it near you for the week.

As always, Paper Yarn Moon has created a beautiful image for this weeks Mantra. Feel free to share or save on your phone and keep it as a reminder for the week.

Many blessings to all of you and see you next time.

Namaste.

 

Passive Ways to Cleanse and Charge your Crystals

I am surprised there is so much information out there in the Crystal world on how to cleanse and charge your crystals. There is a lot of ways to keep your crystals in top working order and there are a LOT more ways on how these “cleansing” ways can totally mess up and majorly damage your piece!

I’ll provide a quick info graphic here on some passive ways, but let me take this moment to tell you HOW you can damage your stones.

WATER: As a general rule of thumb, any crystal or stone that ends in “-ite” are usually hydrophobic, so keep it away from water. Some examples of crystals that can’t be put in water include: Selenite, Calcite, Labradorite, Kyanite, Fire Opal, Carnelian, Angelite, Kunzite, and Turquoise to name a few.

DIRECT SUNLIGHT: Many “experts” claim that by laying out crystals in the direct sunlight, it can cleanse the crystal of love vibing energy. Now, while this is true, there are MANY crystals that should not be exposed to direct sunlight. Why? Well, the color will start to fade after prolonged exposure. Why the crystal will still provide it’s healing benefits, it won’t have it’s natural and sometimes sought after look. For example, Amethyst will go from a dark purple, to faded purple, to lavender and sometimes go completely white. Be mindful of stones you put in direct sunlight.

BURYING IN THE EARTH: Some pieces LOVE being recharged in the earth, others, not so much. The humidity in the earth can expose and exasperate already naturally occurring inclusions making them more fragile and brittle, such as Carnelian.

Feel free to save this quick infographic on a few passive ways to cleanse and charge your babies.

 

Love and Light,

We have arrived…

Yes, you read that right, we have arrived to our new home (at least for the next 2-3 years) in Abu Dhabi.

It has been a long time that we haven’t been able to call a place “home”, but of course, home is where the heart is and my heart is always with my little family.  We spent months between visiting the rest of our family and staying in hotels and crashing pads. It was a learning experience for all of us and something I don’t want to repeat for a while…ha!

Well, we are here and absolutely thrilled. Unfortunately, we are in temporary living quarters until our permanent home is ready but that is going to be soon, so even though I have settled and removed all my crystals and set up a quick office, I will have to pack up and move it over soon (enter crazy/exhausted laughter here).

So just a few quick things:

  1. Remember Love Designs is closed until December 2nd. Half of our team is enjoying a nice and much needed vacation in Europe. Have fun D!
  2. As I mentioned before, Remember Love Jewelry, will be moving again, but we are striving our hardest to be set up quickly and have minimal delays with our orders and our reads.
  3. We have a few spots open for Crystal Reads. Hooray! Click the link for more information.
  4. I have received many messages asking if we ship Internationally. YES WE DO!!!! No matter where we are in the world, we will ship to you. Please message us directly for exact shipping quotes. We will always work with our clients.
  5. We are starting up a Newsletter to bring you all you love about crystals and the latest news. To sign up, just email us at RememberLoveJewelry@gmail.com and you’ll be all set.

Well, now that we have arrived to Abu Dhabi, we will be offering Reiki and Crystal Healing sessions locally. We have received a crazy amount of requests on this and it literally makes my heart sing! This will be absolutely based on appointments only with extremely limited spacing. If you would like to sign up for more info, please feel free to email me at : RememberLoveJewelry@gmail.com and I will be more than happy to provide more information.

Also, for all our new friends here in the UAE, we would love for you to follow us on our Facebook page and our Instagram page. We will soon be participating in local events and markets and hope to see you all there for a warm hello and some Reiki love.

For all of our loves, please enjoy some pictures we have taken since we have arrived. Needless to say, we are so happy here. Namaste!

Love and Light,
Michelle

Dreaming and Crystals: What does Dreaming About Stones Mean

So last night I had a very intense dream (thanks to my Amethyst and Quartz combo next to my bed) and as I slept, I dreamt of a beautiful large multi-faceted Moonstone and embedded at it’s center was a stunning Herkimer Diamond. It was truly something that only the imagination could create.

This isn’t the first time I have dreamt about crystals and every single time, there was a meaning behind the stone that I needed to hear. Many times, when we dream about certain stones, it’s our spirit guides sending us a little message as to what stones we may need for whatever we are going through in our lives.

I always invite everyone to look up the meaning of the stones and almost every time, you will be surprised at how well it aligns with your current situation. I always tell clients not to over look the obvious. If you dream about Diamonds, look up the meaning, Emeralds, Selenite, whatever your spirit guides send you, take a minute to look it up.

For me, Moonstone signified a need to channel my inner Goddess. It helps with inward journey, meditation, re-balancing chakras and helps commune with energies and spirits within nature. With this transition of moving to another country, I have neglected my inner Goddess along with my meditation and my finding my zen outside with mother nature. Thank you Spirit Guides for my message.

Now, for my favorite “dream enhancer” combo, I love putting a large Amethyst and Clear Quartz either next to my bed on my night stand or under my pillow (if they are small enough so I don’t have Princess and the Pea situation on my hands). Amethyst helps in dream recall and facilitates in having prophetic dreams. Clear Quartz enhances the properties of other stones so the combo is divine for dreaming. If you want to set an intention with your Clear Quartz, go for it. I like to meditate a bit with it and ask it help any messages my spirit guides have for me come through. I also ask it to help me remember my dreams in the morning upon waking. You decided if setting the intention is right for you.
