The Pomander Ball Necklace – Reminded of that ancient way of carrying fragrance, this beautiful little chubby ball holds fragrance beads inside so you will always smell delightful when wearing it. My French and German Grandmothers used to wear these, and I’m so glad India has brought it back in a most beautiful and elegant design.  Stunning gold chain and fragrance beads come with.

The Pomander Ball with Fragrance Beads.  Fragrance:  Wild Spiderlily.  It comes with one bottle of the fragrance beads to refresh every 2 – 3 weeks.  Fragrance beads refills are available. 

KOMBOLOI  Prayer Bead Necklace with Tassel – The history of the Komboloi dates back to a time when monks in Mount Athos began making strands of beads by tying knots in a string at regular intervals in order to say their prayers.  In more modern times, the Komboloi is designed to simply help you chill.  Black and Gorgeous as worn by beautiful Leticia.

The Free Spirit – Himalayan Pink, Storm Gray, Burgundy, or Marigold.  Glass beads and mother or pearl.  For the woman who thirsts for adventure, this Free Spirit Necklace is as happy on a red carpet as a deserted beach, worn with a ball gown or a pair of jeans.

The Free Spirit Necklace and the Treasure Box.  Treasure Box in Mint, White, or Gray.  At last, somewhere to hide all that lovely booty.  Box is lined with heritage printed linen and the front displays our gold palm coin reminding us every day to “Live an Extraordinary Life”. 

No Hassle Tassel – Necklaces in Berry & Dark Blue, Ivory, Cloud & Pale Gray, and Khaki & Marigold. Pictured here with the White Treasure Box. Wear them as a necklace or bracelet.  I am told they will bring you good luck.

The Love Doves – Easter 2014

The Love Doves – Easter 2014

 

The Doves arrived early this Spring.  The first few days of March I began hearing their sweet coo’s in the very early morning hours.  Such a sweet reminder each year that new life is bursting forth everywhere.

 

Five years ago they built their first nest here, and every Spring they return to my Mother’s home.  It’s a precious reminder of Love and new Life.  I am comforted by the knowing that these two Doves have mated for life and find their way back here every Spring, to nest once again and give birth to new Life.

 

Somehow they know me by now and trust me just a little bit more. They allow me to come close enough to see them and watch them drink water. Every morning I hear the mother cooing ~ longing for food and the comfort and security of her mate.  He eventually comes and delivers her a meal and hangs around long enough to know she is OK.  Every afternoon, late in the day, he returns again to check in on his mate and delivers her evening meal.  As I watched him drink fresh water from the flower planter lid that I had just filled, he flew up into the tree and just stood there on a nearby branch, looking at me as he cooed.  It was so sweet!

 

These are the simple and beautiful things that bring me Joy each year.  They remind me of the cycles and rhythms of life, even when I don’t always feel I am in perfect balance and harmony with my own life.  These last few years have felt so incredibly challenging.  The old ways of living no longer apply to my life.  I have left them behind, along with the weight they carried.  It was just too heavy to hold onto any longer.  So I just let go.

 

Living inside the vortex of emptiness and the unknowing is often equally challenging. Sometimes I feel like my roadmap is an empty canvas and I am holding the compass in my hand without a specific direction or destination in mind. It appears I am to blaze new trails that have not been traveled before.  At least by me. I am trusting my Heart and the Divine to lead me to where I am destined to go. I don’t know where that is right now.  But I do know that my Heart will lead me in the right direction.  

 

I have let go of the busyness of life and my focus and attention is inward, inside my Heart and Soul.  Whatever arises I give my attention to, and I let go of all the rest.  Somewhere inside this silence is a deep Peace and inner Beauty that invites Harmony and Blessings everyday.  I Trust it.  And I know that it is true.  True to my own self. True to the guidance of the Divine.   

 

I have died to my former self and in this transformation I am free, liberated, powerful and victorious.  And like the Love Doves, I am restored and uplifted every Spring with new Life.  No matter what the circumstances, I am uplifted, restored, and renewed. My Heart is open as I rest in Oneness.  It is this Love, this Divine Love that is the greatest harmonizing force in the Universe, and it is always nudging me forward, each and every day.

 

Thank God for the Love Doves! Thank God for Spring returning each year!  Thank God for the simple and Beautiful Blessings of Life.  Thank God for LOVE !
