We are doing things a little bit differently this season, and launching a few items at a time for our Spring 2016 Collection, Follow Your Light.
Following your Light is all about pursuing what makes you happy in life. We are so busy in our day-to-day lives of pleasing others and accomplishing that massive to-do list, that we forget to take a moment to breathe, and follow that inner light of happiness.
To me happiness comes in many forms. It can be as easy as being outside in nature, and soaking up the sun. Or even eating a healthy meal with friends and family. Happiness can also be as complex as forgiveness. But all in all Happiness comes from Love.
For this collection, I was inspired by my recent trip to Mongolia. While I was there I learned a lot about Buddhism, and the daily practice of what being Buddhist entails.
I loved experiencing something that was so outside of my everyday routine and culture. I found joy in learning about Buddhism, and even in the power of believing in something greater than yourself...and that is what following your light is all about.
The Follow your Light collection is a series of pieces that hold intention, and symbolism. Each necklace is a reminder to believe in yourself, and to follow your inner light. Whether you need a little help removing obstacles, or even an amulet to remind yourself that you are of Pure Spirit.
The photo above is of our O.M.Ganesh Necklace. Although Ganesh is a Hindu God, it is also an object of veneration for many Buddhists. Ganesh is an elephant-headed God, whom is widely revered to as the Lord of New Beginnings and Remover of Obstacles.
The OM Symbol, which is known throughout many cultures, is one with a variety of definitions and meanings. It is said that OM is the all encompassing cosmic vibration of the Universe. In Sanskrit it can mean Unity of Spirit, while in Tibetan Buddhism it stands for Pure Spirit.
So as you can see the O.M.Ganesh pendant is highly symbolic in many ways, intending to bring a little more light into your daily routine.
