The COLORS OF CALM


 A Tizzy

Why am I in this thing called a tizzy?  What is a Tizzy?  How Can I get Out of This Tizzy?  Seems to be a Vortex of Anxiety here.  This how I combat a tizzy:  I reach into my medicine bag and hold this!

Fossilized Coral Pendant Enhancer

Gratitude is the Gateway

One of the great things about this gemstone is that it is here at all.  How many years does it take to create a fossil?  The fact that someone found this gemstone, cut it, faceted it, put a hole through it, sold it, I bought it, made it into some thing you can wear, and now it is posted on a worldwide device that alerts you to its existence.  WoW – now this bead wants to say

Hello 🙂

A Fabulous Fossil – Coral – All The Shades of Calm – Great for your Medicine Bag.  The structure of coral looks like a Tootsie Roll.  All Beautifully stacked in neat columns.  This Softly Faceted top drilled Bead is smooth to the skin.

This is a Custom Made Piece so it is sold.  It was made to slide over a 3mm leather necklace with a small lobster claw clasp.  And,  I can make this so it slides over the clasp and rests over your pearl or gemstone strand making a Pendant Enhancer!  Just tell me the size (mm) of your necklace and I can make you a Rustic Modern Look for any of your classic necklaces.

 

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

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.

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.

Light Show in The Rain 

I have become aware of a high pitch ringing vibration at night. When I hear it I take my camera  and flash photos of the darkness.  I find interesting things in my photos.  ORBs and other activities of the unexplained.  I am just a reporter of this Cosmic Energy.  I use gemstones to attract and explore unseen cosmic trails.

We came home from bowling league and after checking eMail, my husband went to bed.  He, bless his heart, still works an 8-6.  It was raining but I felt a familiar tug.  Camera Ready!

Outside My Front Door

I open the front door.  Wet, cold darkness.  Backing away  I think, I’ll  just shoot from the doorway.  I am not going  into the rain.  I shoot a few rounds into the familiar pattern of the night sky.  I notice after downloading the photos, a fogginess and a cloud just beyond the doorway.   OK,  I’ll go a little way into the night.  Noticing My Bloodstone Bracelet, I stuck my hand into the inky black and took a shot of the gemstones.  I had a feeling.  Just as I thought.  ORBs were coming around me.  I said to myself, and to them, I figure they are smart enough to hear my thoughts, “Please let me touch you.  Come here, pleasssseeeee.”  I didn’t know if  begging was necessary but who wants to take chances?  WoW.  So what is with the Pink/Red Energy?

 

ORBs Are Shooting Light Beings at Me

And now a word from my sponsor.   My Bloodstone.  The Large family of Chalcedony (Cal-sid-nee) splinters into well-known groups.  The Bloodstone is a member of a powerful group that works as an agent, a Go-Between Gemstone.  It helps me overcome the distress and fear of working with cosmic energy.  The shift in my body and thoughts takes a little getting used to.  Bloodstone helps me not go wobbly.

Free Energy

Steady as she goes sort of  Gemstone.  Here! Here!  As we ride the Energy Wave of Gemstones, Bloodstone is the surf board.  I have it stationed on my left wrist ready to help me take  in the  Free Energy.

This evening I added some Beautiful  & Powerful  Aquamarines for my ears and an Argentium Sterling Silver Wrap for my FU finger on my left hand.

Argentium Sterling Silver Ring & Lampwork Bead

I sometimes see this finger as the unruly member.  No manners. At times,  like it has been  brought up in a Single Wide down by the river or not graduating from college or some wacky thing like that.  To adorn its rudeness this digit supports a power-stone or at least some Argentium Sterling Silver.  I use this Precious Metal as  a reflector for  the Silver Moon Ray, duh!   This is the end of the energy light show.  I got so spent I felt I had run a marathon. Not really.  It was way past my bed time though.

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?

Light On Water


Catching the fleeting sunset in Oregon shows me the play of light on water displayed on the big screen of the twilight sky.   Lilacs blooming in full strength perfume the periwinkle air.

Lilacs in Twilight

If words are unspoken are they unheard?  I hear a calm calling in the midst of the closing chaos.  Will I turn away from the beauty because my pain is so great?  Will I choose to listen for the voice that soothes in favor of the cutting rush of angry adrenaline?   Must I really choose.  Hold this moment and think about it tomorrow.  Clouds disappear in the rising sun.  What is this tugging me.  My camera is handy so I set the scene and the pictures revel the subtle play of sunlight on water in a gemstone called Opal.  My grandmothers name was Opal.  She played the part of Mother to tragedies in my youth.   In summer,  while it was still light, she sends me to bed.  My resentment has no boundaries.  I knew she was coming.  I listen for her heels clicking on the linoleum as she turns the hall light off.  I do not say, “Good Night.”  Darkness surrounds  my anger.  Sleep is a chore.   Reluctantly, I give up the day and surrender to the night.

The Softness of Peruvian Pink Opal

Opals are unlike any other gemstone.  They defy their classification.  This gemstone forms by evaporation.  See a volcano erupting.  Molten stone is flung high in the air.  Falling into pocky cold rocks filled with water.  A tiny seed of crystal attached to the hot rock enveloped in great clouds of steam.  More molten stone hurls itself on top of the crystal seed.  The incubator of time  passes.   A man picks up the rock.  Cracks it open and sees the mysterious play of light reflecting  rainbows inside a solid rock.  Heady stuff.  Opals come in many colors and are a large part water just like we are.  Like us they are fragile.  The colors are best felt in their reflection on the skin and Mexican Fire Opals play to win.

Fire Opals Sacred Stone

Fire Opal responds to the warm water evaporating from our skin.  They, like the peruvian Pink, don’t display fire.  They are the color of fire.  Red being the most precious has the most water.  I designed a necklace  of Opals so they jumble over your skin.  They move flashing the message, “Come Here”.  Take a better look.  Scrying is a term used to describe how sound waves make patterns on the face of water.  If you talk to an Opal they react.  They hold  thought forming  patterns and show it on your skin.  Careful,  people will be able to see your thoughts.   Like a neon sign at night. Life is a series of choices.   By choosing to handle with care I have learned to love an Opal.
