Citrine is a stone that can work with the root, sacral and solar plexus chakras. It is mined in Brazil. It is a great stone for creativity and abundance. It can help boost your confidence and personal power. Like amethyst it does not hold and accumulate energy like most crystals it will dissipate and transmute it. It can also help you laugh and enjoy your life. Citrine is a stone that I always carry with me and I love to use it in abundance and creativity meditations and rituals.
A few weeks ago I had the chance to spend a couple of days in Palm Springs and finally had the chance to do a short hike. It's usually too hot when we go but it was cooler so it was the perfect time to check out the Tahquitz Canyon waterfall and trail.
I'll be back at Retreat in South Pasadena this Saturday from 5-9pm for the Arts Crawl. I'll have lots of new jewelry with me. These shows are a great way to see my jewelry in person and even talk about custom jewelry projects!
I've had this book on my to read list for a few years now and just got around to reading it. Since I live in LA I have of course heard of Homeboy industries and I've been lucky enough to talk to some of the men in person who work for Homeboy and hear their stories and see what having these jobs means to them. I think the biggest lesson I learned from this book is that we can love each other better and how to be a more compassionate and empathetic human.
