Turquoise EarringsOh, Satya. I gush about this company pretty much every year (in a possibly not-so-subtle bid for Santa’s attention), but they consistently make stuff that I feel so comfy in, so happy to wear. And it’s relatively affordable–especially if you catch an in-person or online sample sale (there’s actually one coming up: Sunday November 29th through end of day Tuesday December 1st).

So as you get started on your Black Friday shopping (is it seriously that time already?), you might want to take a look at Satya’s “jewelry with meaning and beauty.”

They’ve got healing gemstones, plus spiritual symbols of many traditions–from crosses to Ganeshes to stars of David to lotuses to hamsas. Plus earrings, necklaces, and the like that aren’t spiritual, just also pretty, pretty.

Some days I feel like I need to suit up in this kind of jewelry–adding my homemade mala beads, a $10 glass ring I love, my grandmother’s ring–not out of vanity so much as protection and reminder. I call it my yoga bling, not because it’s all actually yoga-y, but because it helps remind me, in a very direct, material way of the non-material presence of spirit. Ironic, kinda, but true.

Are you a frustrated dreamer? I know I am. I often wake up with fragments of scenes echoing in my mind that seem really meaningful–but then I leap out of bed, start my morning routine, and in seconds they’re gone. I want to linger in that realm and tap into the guidance and insight rising […]

Because I lack an engineering degree and don’t understand why we can’t just stop this thing NOW with a 10-ton wad of gum or giant boulder or massive Q-tip, I’ll share more spiritual wisdom from elders. This is from the beautiful, amazing International Council of 13 Indigenous Grandmothers–they each represent a continent and a native […]

“Worry is a prayer for something you don’t want.” – Sharon Gannon I love that. The other day someone expressed concern about my excessive worrying habit, and I’ve been contemplating on it ever since. Doing my best to actually contemplate, rather than worry. I’ve been on a renewed Gilmore Girls binge lately and last night as Lorelai, […]
