For a Zen Life
Hi, I’m Paula!
Thanks for visiting For a Zen Life. I trust that here you’ll find a Mala or a piece of jewelry, which will allow you to feel the same type of connection as I did when I first discovered the power of natural minerals and stones.
While discovering the astonishing cave, the sound of flowing water started intensifying. We couldn’t believe our eyes, as we used our flashlights to paint ourselves the whole picture of what we’ve just discovered: a small river was calmly flowing through! I live in Canada now, but I’ve spent most of my life living in my home country, Brazil, where there is no shortage of stunning natural attractions.
Just as I was sitting down, one of my friends had the awesome idea to turn off all our flashlights and just listen to the sound of the river bubbling over the rocks.
“Close your eyes to open your ears”, she said, and was she ever right.
Without the flashlights, it was pitch black; not one bit of light came from anywhere. It’s not often that you find yourself in such darkness almost anywhere in your modern life.
Trying to find that perfect spot to sit in total darkness, my hands touched the rock beneath me, and a complete sense of peace and calmness overcame both my body and mind. It all happened so quick, the flashlights must have been off for only a few minutes, but it felt like hours. All of a sudden, everything made sense. I truly felt connected, not just to the rock I was touching, but to everything that the rock was touching as well: the ground, the earth itself. I felt grounded, in its truest sense. I felt as if the earth and I were one. When we turned our flashlights back on, I felt as if I had just returned from a journey, as if I'd just landed.
The next day was the first time I started wearing natural stones with different energies in the form of Malas, necklaces, bracelets, and earrings.
I wanted to experience that feeling every day and emanate such a peaceful and tranquil aura all around me. It wasn’t until I started practicing Yoga and later on Meditation, that I’ve been able to really reconnect again with planet Earth and experience that amazing feeling all over again. This is around the time when the idea of For a Zen Life was envisioned. I wanted to share this feeling with anyone in the world who would want to experience it.
I truly hope these gemstones will help you feel that same energy I felt in that cave, that day.
Meditate, let it flow and it will come to you.
