Before I start anything else, I just would like to tell you a story. I think it was around 2005 when I first started being really into Feng Shui. At that time, I think that was the height of the popularity of Feng Shui Bracelets. I remember that it was that year, that I was able to buy my first Feng Shui Bracelet from Charms and Crystals by Joy Lim. At that time, one bracelet costs around PHP 2800. A few years ago, I asked again how much one bracelet would cost it hiked up to around PHP 6800. Can you imagine that?!
I wouldn’t spend that much money for a bracelet. And so I looked around for an alternative place where I can order bracelets. That time, it was still Multiply. (Oh, I just suddenly missed Multiply.) I came across A Charmed Life by Ysa Yason. (Linking you to their FB Fan Page.)
I think in the past, I have already ordered around 4 bracelets from her. One was a combination of citrine and amethyst, 2 are for health – the other one was predominantly red (corals) while the other one is a combination of corals and jade. The other one on the other hand, was something I gave my mom.
Around the first week of May, on the same day, 2 of my Feng Shui items broke – one was a pendant and the other was one of my super favorite bracelets from Charms and Crystals broke. They said that the bad vibes and negative vibes were picked up by those objects. Yes, I kind of believe that. But what I didn’t know was that when the bracelet broke, I couldn’t have it restringed anymore. This one I found out from my cousin over the weekend.
Going back, I looked back at my past conversations, it was actually May 1 when I messaged Ysa over her Facebook Fan Page asking her if she had a bracelet for that specific thing. And she said that she had. So, it was like a normal order for me. Something that I have already done for the past years.
Some days after, she asked me something. She mentioned it already before to me but never really pushed through. But I think this time around, it’ll push through already! And she gave me the bracelet that I was supposed to order as a gift! Wow. That really came as a surprise and really a blessing.
PLUS, she gave me other items as well. This really made me happy and made me feel so blessed. I guess in a way, it’s God’s way of telling me, don’t worry, I’ll take care of everything in your life – if I take something out or something in your life is broken, I’ll replace it with something MORE.
BUT, the physical things or tangible things are not really what made it more meaningful. I guess the words that she said about my blog were really what made my heart soo happy. You know with all the bloggers out there especially the UBER popular ones, I really don’t know if there are people who are reading my blog. So whenever someone sends out a note to me about this, that really makes me happy. It makes blogging worth it.
Aside from that, our principles and beliefs about crystals are the same. To everyone out there who would want to be into crystals, yes, crystals do have healing powers – as they say. But this is not a magic stone or does not work as a magic cure for your illnesses or problems. It’s just there to enhance something or to try to correct something. The bonus part is that, you will look good when you wear them. That’s how I do it.
So anyway, here goes my latest collection of accessories in mycloset !!
Okay, so I have been trying to finish The One Hundred items that Nina Garcia listed in her book and with this, I will be able to crush out no. 19 And I not only have 1 but 2! Yay for me!
The one thing that you have to note about this is the Mystic Knot. This one symbolizes a long and happy life full of good fortune.
This is my first semi-precious necklace and I instantly fell in love with it. It is made of carnelian which helps the insecure person (haha – BOOM) and Amazonite on the other hand is known as the “Hope Stone”. well I hope and pray that this necklace will bring me good fortune!
This rose quartz bracelet is a popular one given that a lot of people have Love problems. Known as a Love stone, it promotes love for self and others. Yep, better to love yourself first before others.
Zoisite bracelet is something that is new to me. It is an energizing stone that turns negative into positive. Also this bracelet has an evil eye – which is something that I am familiar with already. Protects you from bad vibes.
Made out of pink and gold charms and tassels!
Well, that’s all folks. Again, don’t forget to visit Ysa’s Facebook Fan Page – Charmed Life by Ysa Yason. Truly worth it.
This is probably one of the longest entries that I have ever written and I hope that you got a little something from the story I relayed to you! Faith, Hope and Love. Always stay positive because yes, good things will come our way! Have a great week ahead of you!
