BUDDHA KITTY


All winter I feed this yellow cat.

This is a cat with a life style and he has the scares to show it and claws kitty has claws

.Image

This cat stays in front of a Paint Contractors office and warehouse.  I met the people there and they are friendly and being as it is winter they do a skeleton crew and are not there often.  Buddha Kitty braved the wet storms and was loyal to his adopted place.  The Winter Rain has turned into slightly warmer Spring Rain and Kitty is not hungry any more.  I continue to get strange downloads of Gemstone Critters.  This is a Sacred Fish.  It’s just a name don’t fret so.

Image

It made me feel Artistic to make the Sacred Fish 🙂  I flew the Hand and the Fish together and I was feeling way artsy.

Image

So Kitty is only here on the weekends now.  Another Critter is Breaking Through.  I am planning my trip to Portland to see my Sister, Bjoy.  We intend to make ORMUS as a trial run before her big trip to the ORMUS Fest.  I am not sure what they will be doing but whatever it is it will be Alchemy and all that Jazzy/Cool-Beyond-Tin Foil-Hat-Stuff.  Until Next time.

Glad you are here

MY HEALING HAND


I had made these hands for decades and I had a thought about making one full size.  Image

So much for keeping it simple.  I was so involved I lost track of time and when it was finished – I was amazed.  I had no idea how meditative the making would be.  Image

I used a lot of gemstones, Rock Crystal rounds, Chalcedony, Citrine. Coral. Pyrite, Pearls, Amazonite, facetted Crystals, Swarovski crystals to name a few. It became complicated. Then I couldn’t stop taking pictures of it.  

Image 

This is the back of the structured hand.  It reminded me of the needlepoint I did decades ago.  I loved the way the weaving of the tiny copper wires made the finished piece pleasing on both sides.  The Natural Carnelian was so beautiful in the sunlight.  I love these copper sculptures so much and this hand is working it’s magic spell everyday now.  The project has given birth to many critters – some are recognizable shapes but some seem to be – different.  More like a spirit ornament.  I’ll post them as they emerge.  If you are making something like this would you like to share the pictures here?  I would love to see them!  Here is another shot of the Gemstone Healing Hand.Image

If you would like to talk to me on my Facebook Timeline –>X<–Click the X and away you’ll Zoom then we can share our designs.  I would like that.  Just let me know by leaving a message 🙂 then I can friend you 🙂

White Pearls Blue Crystals


White Pearls Blue Crystals on a Leather and by looksgoodonya.

IT’S ALMOST BEEN A YEAR


I try to use critical thinking

while looking for my authentic voice.  I can never be comfortable just being myself.   I always fudge the real me with veils of gauzy materials.  Being predisposed to like silk chiffon waving in a tropical breeze beneath a mostly sunny sky writing as totally me is like:  It’s Summertime and you’re invited to a cocktail party at a fabulous nudist colony with a private beach.  When you show up at the nudist colony by the sea,  you find you are the only one completely naked.  The thing that seems reasonable is to sip on a vodka tonic saying to whoever happens to look at you,  “I Thought it was a naked party“.  After a while it gets stale.  Like looking for your authenticity by writing as yourself on a public blog.

Moon in Libra 7/6/2011

Setting Moon in the Light of the Setting Sun

It’s almost been a year since We (the universal Imperial We) decided to take photos of the moon every month.  The picture journal led us to apply our critical thinking cap strap pulled tightly under our pointy chins.   We (BJoy & me the real we) began to edit the photos and as we fooled around with the lighten/contrast to better see what was in the dark…We noticed ORBs .  Other things are subjects since being  reveled  though the months of pictures too.

UFOs ORBs

Visitors In An Amethyst Cloud

I have been through a Health Crisis (not me but a close relative) and a Spiritual Crisis followed close on its heels.  That close on its heel was a little trite but in times like these a good throw-away line comes in handy.  It is a comfort in the time of great need to know the name of the God you serve.  Like Dylan said, ‘You’re  Gonna Have to Serve Somebody‘.  Being able to quote Dylan during a Spiritual/Health Crisis is also comforting.  I think.

Smokey Quartz, Chrysocolla, Calcite, Included Quartz

I Gathered the Gemstone Together

For 33 days my loved one was on life support in ICU.  He looked like he was in the Matrix, hooked up to every machine pumping-pinging-analog read outs-blinking lights flashing-hospital machine in the world.  The smell of the room was ice-cold urine.  At least that is the emotional smell of the room.  It was as if Death stalked the corridors.  I kept thinking I see a dark thing darting around corners.  When I looked quickly to catch the black-robed scythe wielding bastard all I saw was the forced smile and the genuine pity from other visitors eyes as they watched their machined-up loved ones breath.

Buddha Contemplates John 4:24

Test Every Belief You Have

  I prayed.

Bjoy Sunstone ORMUS

ORMUS is Gathered Everyday

At the same time as this great CyClonic Wedge of Energy is flowing, my sister is editing the videotape of the ORMUS Conference  2011 in Enota, GA.  BJoy, had the misfortune of thinking the ORMUS dudes were all eating the same Rainbow Stew as she was but has since found out that all  Mens Feet are cast in clay when it comes to making money.  BJoy is a sensitive sort so she waited for the crisis to pass and is offering the DVD at an almost ‘free’ charge to cover her expenses and editing costs.  As Bjoy says, “Men!”  I agree.

I have bought gemstones.  I am being drawn to Calcite, Included Quartz, Larimar, Pearls, Ruby and Chrysocolla.  I have a new necklace I’m working on and I hope to finish it and I’ll post the first results of the ORMUS healing Necklace & Bracelets here.

The gemstone in the picture I bought from ForetTwo.etsy.com.  Please take a look at Elizabeth’s Gemstones.  See for yourself if these stones have a pull toward you.

The David Hudson Speaks DVD set is available here BjoyArt.etsy.com as are the fabulous Guardian Angels. This is a link to a short video about the conference please feel free to visit this –>  LINK  <–This is a direct link to YouTube.

I hope to post this Unique Handmade Gemstone Necklace soon but until then please free to check out my Powerful Gemstone Jewelry on Etsy.

HARNESS GEMSTONE ENERGY


The sun burst through

a slit in the shade and lit up the Herkimer Diamond at the top of the Gemstone Stack.

Programing Gemstone Energy Amethyst & Herkimer Diamond

Gemstone Energizing Gemstone

I thought it startling and I was riveted to the shimmering outside shape of the Herkimer Diamond sitting on top of My Amethyst.  I felt a meshing and then a falling sensation as I closed my eyes and saw the Gemstones aura dance behind my eyelids.  A slash of bright yellow formed like a rind on the whiteness then a flame of red leaping  the glowing Gemstone Stack.

Moon Meditation Silver Rays of the Cosmic Current

Moon Meditation Silver Rays of the Cosmic Current

It seemed as if I was looking at the full moon.  I had received my Larimar 12 days ago and this would be my first full moon since she came.

Clearing Gemstones Before Programming Them

Larimar & Herkimer Diamonds sunbathe After ORMUS Shower

I felt her coming for 5 decades.  Seems a long time to wait for her to find me, or did I finally say yes to the tug of my destiny?  It all started when I was twelve.  That year when all things changed.  I was in great turmoil and crisis heaved in all directions.  I was lost.  My mother lost contact with me near my eleventh birthday as we lived in different houses.  I with my Grandma & Dad and she with her new family and my older sister.   I was forced to live with her part of the year when my Father went to Florida.  When I stayed with my Mother I stayed in my room.  Torn between two families I decided to belong to no tribe I would be loyal only to myself and my side kick sister, Bonnie Joy.

Darkness Is Where the Truth Is

We shared a bedroom until I turned 12.   My mother communicated by opening my bedroom door and throwing a book on my hospital cornered bed.   This time it was the  Sleeping Prophet by Edgar Casey.  I don’t believe in coincidence now but I thought it was an unusual subject.  It was that time of swirling hormones, divorce, abandonment, and sorrow that I first learned of a blue stone that would be found in the Caribbean that would issue healing to the World from Heaven.  

Intentional Gemstone Programming Larimar

The Universal Umbilical Cord

I read those words written forty years after the author had passed on yet it seemed someone spoke the words to me as I read them on the page.  I answered a loud and said, ” I want one of those stones“.  My curiosity compelled me to finish that book and everything else I could find to read about Edgar Casey.  Threw the years of Gemstone Attraction I found out the name of the Gemstone I was looking for.  You see, the Gemstone is Larimar,  a gift of a Gemstone the color of the Caribbean Sea.  A Fabled Link to the Fabled Land Of Atlantis.

Gemstones of the Earth & Sea

Larimar  vibrates at an earthly, low vibration until it is joined to its soul mate where they link their awareness and the Larimar will then vibrate to the Master Number 55.  The two become one intention and the human gains insight on how to heal oneself.

Larimar Gemstone Programming by looksgoodonya

After Linking This Stone Works with You

To just say it is a rock albeit an expensive rock, still, a rock would be fair enough but it wouldn’t close the conversation.  Is it to heal your whole body, yes, and beyond.  Can a gemstone really do this?

only if you have the faith of a trembling 12-year-old school girl.

LARIMAR


I Feel So Much Better Now

I Have Always Been Melancholy

I don’t think they saw me. I can never tell.  Their eyes dart here here-over there you never know what they are looking at.  I overheard the fishermen talking and I told my MomMer and she said, “Poppycock!  You misunderstood”.

Gemstones of the Earth & Sea

Landlubber is not my first language.  I know enough to get by though and I distinctly heard them talking about the shoes.  Shoes made of Gemstones.  They intimated (something they do when they lose the words) that Landlubber women can dance all night long in those Gemstone Shoes.

Some of the hyphenated words I didn’t get but I know I heard the word Larimar.

Land Locked Mer-People Live In Lake Titicaca

This is what I understand:  This Gemstone vibrates to the Master Number 55 emitting an Energy Ray that helps to break self-imposed chains that bind your thoughts.  This Energy speaks of Healing & Love to the place you stand.  Where you walk Peace follows in your steps.  If you wear Larimar Jewelry it acts as a transmitter to those of other worlds opening communication with them.  Oh!  Can you imagine the happy steps you can take in shoes made of Larimar?

I need to give you some of my story if you may think I’m frivolous.   I am a maid, an unmarried mer-woman, but I have graduated from crystal school so I know a thing or two.

I have known many sorrows

Mer-People History:  There is a legend old as the water itself, that we used to swim freely in the vast oceans. Many millenia ago, eons really, the great flood and earth changes came and locked us into this high mountain lake. It took a while and many of us were lost until we adapted to the fresh water we swim in today. Today we live in calculated waiting, knowing that the earth will shift once again, and we may be released from our fresh water holding tank. When the day comes that the salt waters return, there will be another period of readjustment. Many may parish. But the energy vortex that is the healing love of mer-folk will continue.

I have always been melancholy.  MomMer says it will pass but she doesn’t want forbidden things.  I am torn between two worlds.  Maybe three.  Pain surrounds me and I am looking for escape but life may be something that I have not thought of before.

Larimar Blue Topaz Pearls Amethyst & Leather

If I don’t choose feet made for dancing in Larimar Gemstone Shoes (makes me shiver to write the words) what are my options?  You know me too well I’m afraid.  A few  pieces of Larimar Jewelry could tide me over.   I would like a Rustic Modern Gemstone Necklace  Designed by looksgoodonya.etsy.com  I wonder if she could make me a Ring.  Who am I kidding?  I want Earrings and the Bracelet too.

Please visit me at my ETSY Web Store where you might find a piece of jewelry that will make you feel so much better.

Weddings Pearls Rose Quartz & Sterling Silver


A Wedding Bracelet of Rose Quartz, Pearls, Silver & Leather

A Wedding Bracelet

She is getting married in a barn.  OK.  Works for me.  Country Folk don’t need me to defend their taste.  She wanted Seven pieces of Jewelry for her Bridesmaids .   She asked for Timeless Jewelry in a Rustic Modern Style.  A piece of Jewelry that would link all the girls together in a great emotion while revealing the secret truth about each personality like the unfolding of a flower.  OK, I ‘m there.  The Order is real.   Over $700 so I must get to work.  My first thought, Pearls.

We Emanate Energy

The Silver-White Ray of the Moon 

There is an invisible emanation that we release from ourselves, capable of perception, that touches everything we come in contact with. We come in contact to the Moon every 24 hours.   The Moon transmits a similar energy toward the cosmos that we are a part of.  We bath-in this silver-white ray of light.  We feel this ray in the pit of our stomach, a gut reaction, we turn to look at the Moon.     We can’t help but look at the Moon.  It is so fascinating in all its phases.

Gazing At The Full Moon

 We write Poetry to it.  We catch ourselves gazing at the full moon like a lover.  This Moon Energy is beauty shared with our lovers.  Feeling sexy yet?

Argentium Sterling Silver Birds Nest & Pearls

 This is where the Gemstone Pearl comes in.  The message we send to the universe (and to those in our wedding party) is that we hear the tolling of the bell of this cosmic moment and we share our love freely with those we love.  Oh!  To be young and in love with a white dress and a simple strand of pearls.  A Cultured Natural, Organic Gemstone called, Pearl,  Amplifies a  Message of Love.   

Cosmic Spiral With Pearl

Love directed by the Silver-White Moon Ray is symbolized by the white horse, unicorn , or bull spoken of throughout written history.   Like the Moon, it influences our emotions, speaking to us with the voice of our mother, we sense love from a place that is sensitive, vulnerable, open in mind-body and spirit.  A Pearl represents to the Male side of us the picture of the perfect mate.  The highest calling of union to spirit symbolized and cemented with the coupling of physical bodies.

Rustic Modern Leather, Pearl and Sapphire Crystals Bracelet

  Other Gemstones that resonate this energy are Rose Quartz,  Opal, and Agate (Chalcedony).  Just to let you know, I finished all my jewelry pieces including an anklet for the bride.  The wedding did take place in a barn on the island of Maui.  I saw pictures of the wedding.  Sublime.  Rustic Modern means living to the fullest and loving the handmade over the mass-produced.  I love the project and I love-making my gemstone Energy Jewelry.

WHY THE ATTRACTION?


I Play The Didgeridoo

Where There's Smoke

Weather permitting we build campfires.  We love to play, sing, and laugh around the camp fire.  My sister, BJoy, has been pursuing the oddities in life for at least 20 years.  She has seen and photographed ORBs for years and now I see them too.  She is editing a film about ORMUS, ORBs, Gemstones and Music.  Love her scope.  My interest is gemstones but the ORBs showed up soon after the didgeridoo sounded that note.

I play the Didgeridoo

Do You Do The didgeridoo?

I played a note and BJ caught a photo of it.  The musical note became a storm of swirling Orbs.  They appeared as snow or as if we were in a soup of ORBs.  We were overcome and the only light was fire light.  BJ has a new single,  Do You Do the Didgeridoo?,   I play the didgeridoo.  She says there is a flip side called, Didgeri Funk.  Can’t wait to hear it.  I have bullied her into putting a Web Store on ETSY.

inspiration Angel

BjoyArt.etsy.com

She has unique handmade  wonderful Inspiration Angels for sale.  Love those Angels!  BJoy went to the Northern most part of Georgia to explore the making and distribution of ORMUS where she met some fabulous people.  Some Geeky Smarts and Scientist-y types.  That’s where she met Lady Lark who says she talks to rocks.  Ahhh.  A kindred soul.

ORMUS Convention Enota Georgia Lady Lark and Giant Crystals

Lady Lark Guards the Crystals

Lady Lark is an expert in the crystal and gemstone energy flow.  BJoy snapped this picture of a Bloodstone Necklace that was hand-mined, carved, made into a necklace and given to Lady Lark by a friend from New Zealand.  Her Bloodstone is going to be a great help to her and she feels a ray of Healing Energy.

Lady Lark Wears Power Jewelry

I have seen pictures of the mammoth Crystals she keeps at the hill-top house called Birds Nest.  The clear crystal shafts emanate a white energy ray that enters the body from all points at once.

These Crystals awaken the Cosmic Consciousness and Lady

Lark is as lively as the crystals she keeps.  Her right wrist is clad in an Artisan Made Hand Forged & Stamped Copper Bracelet.  Her Left wrist bracelet, made by BJ, of  Hand Mined Oregon Sunstones and Carnelian Gemstone Chips.

Larimar Power Gemstone

I love to surf the web stores that sell minerals and gemstones.  What a luxury to shop from your comfy chair.  The pictures are very important but I have bought stones that are decidedly ugly but still have a powerful pull.    The Stone that is coming is a powerful stone.  A Caribbean Gemstone called Larimar.

Are You interested in Gemstones.   Do you see ORBs in the night?   What in the You-Niverse is going on?  Let’s talk about it.

This Larimar Gemstone is available on ETSY in this wonderful store here.  LarimarAndSilver.etsy.com

Here is the link to my Web Store on ETSY   looksgoodonya.etsy.com  where I’m sure you will find a Power Gemstone Bracelet that is calling to you.

UNDER THE INFLUENCE


The Patterns of My Focused Attention

What holds my attention is light through a colored stone.  Gemstones capture my attention.   They hover about me, Zeppelin-ish, sparking waves of thought.  It’s fun to play in the reflected lights.

light through a colored stone

A Few Weeks Before Phnom Penh Fell

I was in Northern Thailand working, loving.  Almost famous I wore my beauty as a talisman. What in the world could go wrong?

After April 17th, being an American 150 Kilometers from the Cambodian border my request to extend my visa was denied.  I only had two weeks to shop. Determined to go to Burma for Jade my boss told me no, NO!   Under no circumstances, no.  I met a man named Hardy Stockman, a German Soldier of Fortune.  He offered to take me to a village in Burma where he was sure I would find the Jade I was looking for.  We traveled by car as long as the roads allowed.   When we got to the Fong River we had to walk across the bridge into Burma.   We crossed under the watchful glare of men with machine guns clutched to their chests.   I was electrified by danger and charged with adrenaline.  That mission for Jade linked my spirit forever to the intoxicating energy of  The Colored Gemstone.

How to Wear A Power Stone

The most effective way to harness the energy of a Gemstone is to wear it.  Bingo!  I am creating jewelry.  My problem:  I’m  allergic to metals.  That’s great.  I found my niche.  I could design jewelry for the Power Hungry Uber-Sensitive  Rustic Modern Girl.  She also would like Minimalist Furniture, Haiku Poetry,  Irish Knit Sweaters on a chilly morning  walk by the lake.  That’s My Girl.

Petro Tourmaline colors of Earth

I heard a story about a Princess dowager in ancient China who tried to acquire all the Tourmaline she could so she could be buried with it.  She believed something about the Gemstones’ Energy.  Hummm.  Looking for clues I stumbled upon greater minds like Marcel Vogel, David Pond,  Medicine Woman Running Deer, Brett Bravo, Melody.  So many people so many energies.   The Art of making Power Jewelry is:  Finding a Style &  Direction.  Now all I have to do is make something that doesn’t suck.

Rustic Modern Gemstone Jewelry

That brings me to non-corrosive Niobium, Titanium, Gold and now my new favorite, Argentium Sterling Silver.  My collection of  gemstones grow.   I make jewelry for myself and my friends.  My pile of jewelry grows.  I must find a way to sell more jewelry or stop buying gemstones.  I opened my Web Store on ETSY.   Now perfect strangers want to buy gemstone encrusted jewelry.  Oh and the original  Burmese Jade?  The Beads are always with me.   I talk to my gemstones.  I think they are beautiful.  They think I am Beautiful.  Who could argue with that logic?

My Web Store Is Here:  looksgoodonya.etsy.com  Please visit and see if a gemstone is calling you.
