4. Retrieving Power from My Shadow Side Pendant

Dark is Ok

4. Pick the stone that is your dark side, things you avoid but now will face. It might be that this stone has a petrified bamboo or fossilized corral. The dark plum flower agates and copper blue agates show that there is darkness, but inside us also to be found with that is our light. Only by accepting our darker self or avoidances can we find our strengths. Carl Jung called this our "hidden shadow self". He said we avoid this self. As in the great prayer by Marianne Williamson: We are not afraid of our weakness, really, but afraid of our strength. Isn't that a different way to look at our darkness? We think it'll all be horrible garbage inside, but we find it's like a chocolate covered cherry: inside the dark was hidden our light, our soul, our direction, our personal power, and courage.

 

 

 

 

 Spirit Stone Pendant 4: In my darkness is my light

 

In our lost dark side is my lost resources and light. When I wear this stone weekly, or when I wear it because I'm avoiding it, I remember that I am not weak, but what I fear most is my strenghts. In those lost and ignored recesses of our mind and life, we put in things to avoid: standing up, being powerful, recognizing our own beauty or intelligence, seeing our own talent. I pick for this pendant to wear, a stone with darkness, but also light. Darkness bad, I can go inside, and when I think I'll only find bad memories, I find so many good ones and strenghts.  I follow each day I wear this pendant the quote by Williamson used by Nelson Mandela and thousands of others:

Our Deepest Fear

by Marianne Williamson from A Return To Love: Reflections on the Principles of A Course in Miracles 
Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.

When we understand that in our darkness is our light, we begin to have a different view of life, both good and struggles. We finally make sense and find the personal meaning and growth in all our past problems and struggles: this make me grow in this and that way that without a hurricane or enemy in life, or great struggle, I would not have had. I find meaning in life's light and dark, in myself and my past experiences. This makes me more resilient, because wearing the shadow self Spirit Stone Pendant reminds me to look in all situation, problems, struggles, and challenges for the meaning and purpose of it in my life. I no longer see life as failures but only as growth aids and lessons. I have a more positive view of the future and of myself because of this.

Soul

1. Pick the stone, or rather it will pick you, that feels most comfortable, soulful, and conveys to you a story of your life. It could be swirls, a break in a heart pendant that moves into lines of expansion,  a scenic story of a picture jasper, or bands of color that are calming and real to you. Pick what most genuinely feels like you.

 

Spirit Stone Pendant 1: Honoring my Full Soul: 

 

I am a complete person. Wearing this stone honors my fullness. I am here, as entitled as others, and recognizable as significant by myself and others. I have my r.e.s.p.e.c.t.  In times where others let me down or my own inner critic is rampant, I love myself and inventory my qualities and contributions. I no longer have to edit myself to myself or others because I am.

 

 


recognizing our wholeness

Nothing more is needed of you. You are.

And, not only is there not examples here, the reason or 7 categories of the stones is a private matter. You'll wear the stone, others will see the pendant, but only you will know the inner soul meaning to you:


7 Stones of Power, Wholeness, and Healing will Pick You!



Knowing who you are





"The value in the gem stone is not necessarily in it's purity of color as the common standard touts, but in other factors: contrasts of colors shades and hidden messages and stories in shapes, designs and forms in the stone itself. The valuable gem stone of Jasper or Agate stands alone and combination with other jewels is not necessary with a picture story telling stone. They unite with the wearer and convey both the stone's story, but the inner soul story the wearer makes. This is not adornment but expression. Flaws are not seen as downgrading as in a diamond store, but are defining characteristics that reflect that stones and the wearer's life are real.


Every gem stone features here will represent these qualities: a story of light, contrast, and color.  The preferred shape of most stones here is the Pendant, as this is the greatest gallery for any metaphor story jasper or agate stone.   So Diverse are the Pendants of jasper and agate that they help build a wardrobe of precious gem stone to wear that one will combine with and wear. Though the occasion or day changes, and the pendant changes, the soul connection to the stones in your Pendant Wardrobe will be there daily, conveying your own inner message of healing, strength, openness to life, presence, calm, energy, or whatever you pick today's Pendant to be for you."


How do you pick you Pendant Stones? 


Of course, your choice is to have a collection that has colors you like. But, some colors of jaspers might not be your first choice. But, subdued khaki with a desert scene, or flowing bands of burgundy and navy colors can fit moods, occasions, and complement or contrast with clothing, personality, occasions, and makeup. Think of it as each day, you are setting up the photo sitting of yourself. Your photo sitting of yourself includes these metaphors for 6 starter pendants of meaning:

7 Stones of Power, Wholeness, and Healing will Pick You!


Soul

1. Pick the stone, or rather it will pick you, that feels most comfortable, soulful, and conveys to you a story of your life. It could be swirls, a break in a heart pendant that moves into lines of expansion,  a scenic story of a picture jasper, or bands of color that are calming and real to you. Pick what most genuinely feels like you.

Heal Daily

2. Pick the stone that is healing, calming, and gives presence. This might be a more muted jasper in an earth tone, or a darker stone: it's always without reservation or criticism OK to go into yourself for healing as often as you want. Leave the out chaos. Like Einstein said, let go of changing situations and people and hitch your ride with your own goals or purpose in life. That way, you come back to home, you, presence of mind, and connection of why you're really here. We're not here to get rich, be famous, or other ego ideals, but to be whole and live life with choice and meaning. We're here to make sense of the storms, and consolidate our gains to move ahead....at a soulful pace. No more running with scissors in our hands kids.

What picks you?

Passion

3. Let the stone of color and energy pick you. This is one that energizes you to move ahead, and reminds you that you are validly on life's journey and that inner critic needs dethroned in our heads. This stone might be the colored bands of a contrasty agate. This stone says, joy and happiness are ok, no matter what they are for you. Happiness could be something you don't tell others, your joy in a pet, or just sitting. But whatever it it, turn it up in all regards, up by 10%.  Pema Chodron, Buddhist, said, "head into it, whatever it is, 10% more". The great ancient poet Rumi said, more or less, follow what amps you up, makes you feel good. Today with each moment, choose to upgrade a bit: choose out of two things to do that you do the one just a bit better, more joyful, and less mundane.

Dark is Ok

4. Pick the stone that is your dark side, things you avoid but now will face. It might be that this stone has a petrified bamboo or fossilized corral. The dark plum flower agates and copper blue agates show that there is darkness, but inside us also to be found with that is our light. Only by accepting our darker self or avoidances can we find our strengths. Carl Jung called this our "hidden shadow self". He said we avoid this self. As in the great prayer by Marianne Williamson: We are not afraid of our weakness, really, but afraid of our strength. Isn't that a different way to look at our darkness? We think it'll all be horrible garbage inside, but we find it's like a chocolate covered cherry: inside the dark was hidden our light, our soul, our direction, our personal power, and courage.
Where are you going and where have you been?

 5. 50 shades of me, humanity, rebellion, and sexuality. I STAND Spirit Stone Pendant.

This stone, you'll eventually rename for that part of you repressed that you allow it to waken. 

This is the greatest coruncppia of lost parts most people experience. But, with it, one can become a heroic person, a leader, or simply real in any part of life like:

  • Rosa Parks

  • Eleanor Roosevelt

  • Hillary Clinton

  • Madonna

  • Lady Gaga

  • Oprah

  • Ellen Degneres

  • or any pop star or singer that tries something new or expresses some rebellion, talent or sexuality that opens a door for others

 

Hey, we have one life to live. None of us are prudes. I found though, talking to people for 30 years in the therapist office that 60% of all people are emotionally and sexually repressed. Inside us though is that inner hidden sexual cheetah that wants out. We might think all hell will break lose. Well, we might make a few mistakes at first, but then find the cheetah used the doorway of "naughty girl" to open us up to intimacy, touch, human connection, fullness of soul, and the willingness and ability to take any risk in life. If you continue to cage the cheetah, it will come out through depression or even obsession. Released, it's really just you......nothing to be afraid of.

Story short: many times I encountered people in bad situations where sexual risks could not be taken outwardly. I helped these people to get info on self pleasuring and massage, inner fetish interests, and sex toys. These people realized: I must turn it up 40%, but sexuality includes those things mentioned but is more about life being accepted and lived as a sexual person. This could include allowing oneself to say an off joke, let out a sexual innuendo or flirt, or with your Yes, We and I are all Naughty and It's OK Pendant. Pick that one that gets you going.
What do you repress but need to be whole?

6. Risk. 


This is the Pendant that comes to you but is not the one you'd naturally gravitate to. It could be something different in form or color. This Pendant is not disturbing or disliked, but it is just the opposite of what you typically do. This is risk. And, that thing risked becomes very practical. Should you wear it, you make a statement that you're not stuck in the mud in repetition life. Should you never wear it, which likely would not happen, just the act of acquiring it bring about change. This is a metaphor of risk and change. Wearing this pendant reminds oneself and makes changes inside the brain: I take risk, I like challenge, and I'm getting more skilled at being in either situations that are different or to tolerate the unknowns and mysteries of life.
What's the meaning and purpose of my life?

7. Path and Purpose


This stone may be a color of drive and meaning to you or it could be a stone that flows into some future pattern. It could have bands of color seeming to draw one to the future or purpose or there could be a line that seems like a pathway in it. What ever you choose, whether color as a story or a scene as a story, it means you're seeking meaning, purpose, and some ultimate goal in life, and are on a path. The path could have roughness and learning, but the end is to be whole, soulful.

Initially, in making up a portfolio of picture and color jasper stones on this site, it was evident that the banded colored agates were needed to present these lines of path and contrasting colors of hope. For that reason, selected agates with symbolic meaning in colors and lines are presented, to make this initial starter Pendant wardrobe complete. It could be an agate with boxes containing life's parts, a sea agate concreting together divergent pieces just like a quilt is patched together, it could be one with lines heading to a final soulful destination, just like Percival once was as he sought the pinnacle in life for the knights: to find the Holy Grail with represented either wholeness or some connection with spirit.....whatever you choose that to be. While literature says the Grail Story was a religious story of finding lost connection with spirit, but, historians point to the Quest as one where the knight would find wholeness of soul.......so, with these two views you get to pick.....what is you purpose and Quest in life.....now....get your butt moving to it!
What path or paths are you on?

Know yourself through short lists. This won't make more work for you, only less. This takes moments to inventory our life and self.......not days. It's both easy and hard. The pay off is to live life for who we really are, and not what others or our self expects. We are truly here and in the now. Listing your life is a wonderful life skill to know and pass on to others.
