"Gemstone Magic: Goddess Affirmation Cards"
It's President's Day in the U.S. and I'm trying my best to make the most out of this gift of an extra day off. Truth be said I would much rather be painting, but I have had several requests to sell some of my artwork, so instead of painting, I'm spending the day photographing, editing and listing new art on my Etsy store. http://www.etsy.com/shop/JadeScarlett
Inspired by my lovely sisters at the Magical Sabbatical with Sage Goddess http://www.sagegoddess.com/magical-sabbatical/ I am very proud to present a new collection, full of magic, powerful affirmations, and sheer gemstone magic goodness.
This is a unique, one of a kind collection of miniature mixed media paintings, created with natural gemstone paints that have been handmade by me, under the magic of the full moon. Affirmations and Crystal magic are powerful ways to aid in healing, transformation, love, self-esteem, clear thinking, prosperity, manifestation, and so many other attributes. I have used several gemstone pigments to create this work of art, always in a deep meditative state, with only the highest intentions. All affirmation cards are anointed and charged on my altar, infused with all the love and magic of the gemstone properties, and the highest of intentions to manifest all that is good for you and for the good of all. I also add tiny bits of crushed white sage that has been mixed with gold mica, to keep the stones and crystals cleansed and purified, and free of negative energies. The back of the card has a personalized affirmation, handwritten with Dragon's Blood ink to strengthen and empower the magic of the words. Don't worry, no dragons have been harmed in the making of the ink! Butterflies and dragonflies are added to embellish the Goddesses as well as to bring the magic of transformation and light through the empowering use of affirmations and gemstones. Butterflies transformation in the cocoon is nothing short of magical and Dragonflies remind us that we are light and can reflect the light in powerful ways if we choose to do so.
Examples of gemstones used are: aquamarine, turquoise, lapis lazuli, garnet, apatite, tiger's eye, kyanite, quartz, amethyst, carnelian, agate, amazonite, tourmaline, hematite, malachite, rodochrosite, sugilite, zoisite, chrisoprase, lepidolite, calcite, onyx, rhodonite, just to name a few. I only prepare new batches of paint on the night of the full moon, to infuse it with the most potent, rich magic of all. The paints are then mixed with a drop of an organic essential oil of choice, depending on the magic being worked, smudged, blessed and charged on my altar for a full lunar cycle, before being used on the original paintings as well as the prints.
I poured my heart out on those little paintings and I hope that they will bring magic and love to those who feel drawn to them. Every little detail was well thought of, even the way they are prepared to travel. They come inside an organza bag, making it to carry the magic everywhere, so they can be pulled out throughout the day to say the affirmation over and over, and be infused with the magic of the gemstones, herbs and oils present in each miniature painting. Also in the bag is a little crystal chip, a small sage leaf that can be burned to smudge and clear your card upon receiving it, and a card explaining the properties of the gemstones used to create those beautiful affirmation Goddess cards.
If you think that this may be something that can bring the love, magic and empowerment you're seeking for in your life, come and take a look at the paintings that are available at the moment: https://www.etsy.com/listing/124005419/gemstone-magic-goddess-affirmation-card
