Introduction to Her New Monthly Column for Here's to Your Magnificence

@ AnnaMariah (Carolyn Nau) ~ with permission

My crystal and gem jewelry designs called Bold Bodacious Jewelry came about as part of my mission to help people become more consciously empowered. If you're reading Takara's newsletter, then I probably don't need to explain to you that gemstones have energy. Phwew, there's one big thing out of the way. Just kidding, but you'd be surprised how many people look at me cross-eyed when I mention that idea.

I am a gemstone empath. In my work I  tune deeply to the energy of the stones and listen to their guidance in creating gemstone jewelry that can be supportive and even transformational in myriad ways. Combining my connection with stones and my ability to read and sense auras I have been able to work with the stones in unique ways to bring about combinations that resonate at different levels. In this case the whole is so much more than the parts.

You can look up the meanings of stones and that may give you an overview of what you can expect. But there's a magic that happens when the connection is made between the wearer and a gemstone necklace. The resulting changes may align with what the books say, and sometimes what I see is a created combined energy that is completely unique and not exactly what would be expected from those particular combinations.

My initial awakening into spiritual consciousness came about due to a stone. I was in New Zealand at the the Maori Exhibition in 1987. In one write up about the exhibit they say this of the stone "The E Tü Ake mauri stone, named Hine Kaitaka. Mauri is the life force that exists in and connects all things, living and inanimate. Hine Kaitaka is a touchstone for the exhibition, anchoring the mauri of everything on display, the visitors and the exhibition's hosts."

The stone was placed at the entry point, and you were to touch it to honor the ancestors and give thanks as you entered. I touched the stone and felt electricity run through my body from the top of my head, through my feet and into the earth. At this time in my life I had no awareness that stones had energy and was completely taken by surprise. I looked up into the eyes of an ancient Mauri woman who seemed to be smiling knowingly, and somehow almost gleefully. Only one other person in our tour group of 40 people reported feeling anything. I was deeply moved by this experience, but certainly didn't expect it to change anything in my life. HA I won't go into detail but my life turned summersaults for the next few years, I had visions, learned to read tarot cards, experienced my first past-life, oh wait, here's a surprise, a Mauri warrior. I credit this stone and my experience at that moment with activating something deep in my soul, and I've never looked back.

I was able to reconnect with this same touchstone again in 1998 at a tiny little exhibit in Arrowtown New Zealand.  It took my breath away. I was instantly on my knees communing with the stone and soaking up its love and giving back my deep gratitude for its part in my life. Shortly after that I was back in Montana at a meditation and saw and felt that stone again in my mind and I heard these words. "This touchstone holds the energy of love and hate. It's a fine balance and it's yours to choose, which will you decide."

I was reminded of this as I was listening to a call with Tantra Maat 1/13/12 as she was discussing a revelation she had recently experienced. She stated that we must find the balance between joy and sorrow love and hate, death and life, seeing them as the same, and not separate from each other. I'm simplifying here I know, but that statement brought to mind my experience of the touchstone and my initiation into the phenomenal gifts the earth has given us. She continues to give us, even now, with new stones, that have never been experienced by man before, each one bringing with it a particular quality to assist the evolution of mankind.

Tantra Maat also said that we must know who we are and what is ours to do.

As I pondered this directive I know who I am and what is mine to do. I am honored to be a guardian of the stones, and to be called to help them bring forth their light and depths to the world. Each stone I touch is reactivated with the original energy of creation and is tasked to assist the wearer or recipient of its energy to awaken to full consciousness of who they are and what is theirs to do. In this way we step out of the darkness and into our full light of being.

I look forward to sharing insights into the gifts of the earth and how they can assist you on your path.

Ever since I can remember I have had an affinity for rocks of all shapes and sizes. You could say I'm a slight hoarder, I just love them and have them all over my house as well as quite a collection outside. They intrigue me and I'm interested in learning more about crystals! Thank you for sharing, look forward to learning more!!!
