I am so in love with this necklace.  It just oozes that girlie with a slight hint of magic prettiness if I dare say it.  Totally ‘Pretty in Pink’ with a very special Danburite centre piece stealing the show.  It is all about the heart and one’s higher self.

This lovely necklace is made up of small rose quartz beads, Swarovski crystal amethyst, hematite dice beads, all hand knotted on silk with the show stopper Danburite crystal.

The mantra that came to me whilst making this piece is So Hum.

About So Hum

So Hum: Contemplation Meditation

This contemplation meditation is an opportunity to focus “thinking mind” on the mystery of being.

This contemplation meditation is an opportunity to focus “thinking mind” on the mystery of being.

The yogic mantra “so hum” is not only a reflection of the sound of the breath but also carries a contemplative meaning: “I am that” (so = “I am” and hum = “that”). Here, “that” refers to all of creation, the one breathing us all. This contemplation meditation is an opportunity to focus “thinking mind” on the mystery of being and to reflect upon the interdependent nature of all phenomenon revealed by the sages and confirmed by contemporary physics.

How To Practice “So Hum” Meditation

Step 1

Find a comfortable posture for meditation (seated on a cushion or blanket, in a chair or against a wall). Place your palms facing up in jnana mudra (forefinger and thumb touching) with your palms facing up to open your awareness or facing down to calm the mind. Scan your body and relax any tension. Let your spine rise from the ground of the pelvis. Draw your chin slightly down and let the back of your neck lengthen.

Step 2

Bring your attention to the tidal rhythm of your breath, feeling the rise and fall of your inhalation and exhalation. As your focus settles on your breath, begin to employ the simple mantra “so hum.” As you inhale, silently say “so” to yourself and as you exhale, say “hum.” Once the “so hum” rhythm has been established, begin to contemplate the meaning of “so hum.” As you inhale with the mantra “so,” say to yourself ” I am,” connecting to your essential self. Contemplate the source of your breath: Where is your breath coming from? Through visualization, contemplate the 5 billion human beings and countless creatures on Earth being fed by the same tidal rhythm of the breath.

Step 3

As you exhale with “hum,” inwardly say “that” or “all that is.” Feel how your exhalation releases you into the expanse around you. Visualize your exhalation leaving your body through your nostrils and then merging back into the atmosphere, back into infinity, back into “all that is.” Stay with this contemplation until you naturally begin to settle into a state of unified consciousness (which may only be for a few brief, refreshing moments at a time). If a thought (vritti) arises, come back to the simple mantra, “so hum.”

Tips for Your Practice

In the beginning, it may be helpful to set an external timer for 10, 20, or 30 minutes so you are not distracted. When you are finished, bring your hands together in anjali mudra (prayer position) and close with a moment of gratitude, reflection, or prayer to soak up the energy of your meditation into your being and life.

Let’s also talk about the lovely stones used within this piece.

Danburite

One of the highest vibration minerals currently found, Danburite “connects the heart of the mind with the mind of the heart”.  Highly spiritual and sought after for its metaphysical properties, Danburite is a powerful Heart Chakra stone, relieving emotional pain and increasing acceptance of one’s self and of others.  Danburite will help you to “let your light shine”.  The pure love energy of Danburite brings serenity and peace.

Gentle yet powerful, Danburite also works with the Third Eye and Crown Chakras.  Danburite stimulates the Higher Crown Chakras, connecting the Heart to these Higher Chakras, and aids in communication with Angels and Guides.   Danburite is a good stone to have around during times of extreme change, and eases the transition of those leaving the physical human form.  Danburite can help heal old deep wounds, as well as clear past Karma.

A piece of Danburite in your pocket can ease stress and bring calm in difficult situations.  Danburite is a good choice for anyone who is highly focused in the mental body (like academics and engineers), opening the heart and easing reconnection and balance with the emotional body.

Hematite

  • Base Chakra

Hematite grounds and protects us.  It strengthens our connection with the earth, making us feel safe and secure.  It endows us with courage, strength, endurance and vitality.  A “stone for the mind”, Hematite stimulates concentration and focus, enhancing memory and original thought.

Hematite utilises the magnetic qualities of our yin-yang energies to balance the meridians within the body and to provide a stable equilibrium between the ethereal nervous system and the physical nervous system.  It focuses energy and emotions for balance between the body, mind and spirit.

Dissolves negativity and prevents you from absorbing the negativity of others.  Haematite is strong, supporting timidity, boosting self-esteem and survivability, enhancing willpower and reliability, and imparting confidence.  It helps to overcome compulsions and addictions, treating overeating, smoking and other forms of overindulgence.

Swarovski Crystal

Swarovski Crystals are not actually crystals in the sense of natural stones. They are finest lead crystal glass made by Swarovski in Austria. Thus they have the energies of glass as well as colour energies  related to their color. They also bring positive energy, hope, joy, good luck, and diffuse negative energy.

I have some more lovely pendants just waiting to be made up, if you fancy a custom piece just use the contact form and we can work together to create something really special for you.
