Chakras And Balancing Them

Since the jewelry I make works so closely with body energy, I’m often asked about choosing crystals for chakra healing. Some people know a lot about their chakras, but don’t know how to choose crystals for them. Others are vaguely aware that chakras exist, but they don’t know what they are, or how we are affected by our chakras. I wanted to shed a little light on the role that chakras play in our spiritual, physical, and energetic bodies, and what crystals match well with each of the seven main chakras for balance and healing. First of all, chakras are energetic centers within the body, the word chakra is Sanskrit for “wheel” which refers to the way that energy spins...

Think of a zen garden: a monk carefully placing stones and raking the sand into beautiful patterns and lines. The zen garden he creates is not perfectly aligned and symmetrical. There is not intricate pattern that makes everything fall into place. It is not meticulously planned. Sometimes there is balance in imbalance,...

A Meditation Practise

Creating a regular meditation practice is one of the most helpful things that I have done for my own mental health and spiritual wellbeing. I wanted to share a little bit with you today about some of the ways that I’ve seen meditation benefit my own life, and the lives of those I hold dear. I’ve also got some ideas for you if you want to bring this practice into your own life. We all sense energy, but I am particularly sensitive to it. It can be draining, at times, to be so connected to the energy of those around me. I have to have self-care practices in place that rejuvenate me, and allow me to connect back to my...

Bohemian Essence

Hey Guys,  I want to thank you for taking the time to read these thoughts that I’m sharing. I’m really looking forward to continuing to connect with all of you by sharing some of my thoughts and processes so that you can have an even fuller picture of the work I do. Gaia Boheme is driven by a heart--my heart--for bohemian lifestyle and fashion. And I am excited to invite you in.I’ve had some people ask why I create pieces the way I do, using the raw and natural style, and I think it has a lot to do with my interest in bohemian fashion, which has its roots in artistry, dedication to natural beauty, and a rejection that fashion...
