I blab the merits of Gemstones and Crystals to anybody who would even remotely listen and am always intrigued by people's experiences with them. I am most humbled and honored by these comments in regard to a piece of my work:
"Jacquie Bird I've been SO eager to share my testimony with my new Epidote ring! Besides adding beauty to my life :) I have noted increase on several levels. Whether it's been a financial increase (part of my hesitation on making the purchase was tied to the fact that I am unemployed and on a tight tight budget on paper, but I know my Source so that doesn't usually hinder me from giving and trusting from a place of lack. I had about $25 in my pocket on the way home. Today is a week later and the Universe has returned what I spent and more.
But that is small potatoes compared with the increase in strength that I have post separation from my partner, I'm feeling graced not to relapse like usual, and I'm finding the strength to facilitate the change I've been longing to see. Slowly but surely, just for today I can say old habits that no longer serve me are dying. (We'd just separated the previous Monday). Though I've talked and reminisced with him since then, I have not allowed him back in. That's major considering the rollercoaster these past four years have been. We need a new intention either apart or within our relationship. Sometimes change only happens with stillness.
There's more! I also found out about a Scholarship that will help me receive Doula training. So there's evidence of an increase in available resources for me that will support me in becoming who I'm am being called to be in the world.
Lastly, I just had a revelation about what is happening in my life=increase in understanding. My energy, confidence and focus to get things done and show up fully is blossoming before me. The assistance/energy my Epidote stone is giving me (via the Grace of God) could not come at a better time as I return to college and complete my degree as a single mom. I am grateful for its service!
Thank you for your creativity AND collecting it from the shop just for me! ♡"
(I had just retrived the ring from a shop where the ring had sat for 8 months. Jonae bought it at the 1st event right afterwards)
