universe 2

The owl, wisdom, the universe, gemstones and you. Wisdom Art: How did it get its name, logo and what it is all about?

We all gaze at the stars from time to time, wonder about the world and ourselves and ask the big questions. I learned that the more I looked for the answers outside myself the more I journeyed within. The longest journey you will ever go on, is the journey within. This Wisdom is in each of us. So where do you begin? The moment you were born in this world is a great place to start for many of us, your moment in time your birthday.

During this journey I have found myself gazing at up at the stars. I believe many of us do from time to time. The universe is an infinite place of mystery that draws us like a magnet. The Universe is not just a place that exist above on a macro level but also in the micro…..and within us. Take for example the similarities of the iris of your eye and a nebula or the fact that we a made of the elements, carbon, nitrogen, iron…literately we are mad of the same stuff as stars. There is a universe that exists within each of us and we are drawn to explore, learn, understand and grow in our Wisdom.

So what could I share or create as I fiddled with a gemstone in my pocket? And there it was, in my fingers, I have always had rocks in my pocket, even as a youngster I collected special stones from places I have visited. Gemstones have always been in the foreground our background in my life. It is believed that by wearing, holding or carrying, gemstones have the ability to influence, to heal, protect and to transform energy and I have personal had many wonderful experiences with different gems and crystals. I wanted to create something blending my passions for the universe, gemstones. Something that would inspire, empower and celebrate personal journey we are all on, collectively and personally. Wisdom Art bloomed.

Ok, but why the Owl? Well, also something I have been connected to since I was little. The owl stood for Wisdom, mystery and exploration. Known for its heightened senses such as its ability to see and hear and its intuition it was the perfect fit. Take a peek at Wisdom Art on Facebook, you will find lots of information about gemstones, crystals, owls and inspiration. Be inspired to explore and discover your personal Universe.

The word chakra is Sanskrit for “wheel.” Each of our chakras is linked to a specific color, element, developmental stage, emotional state, mental state and physical state of being and part of the body.

We are like Crystals

Did you know we are like crystals? There are two kinds of crystals that generate the piezoelectric effect, piezoelectric crystals and liquid. We are both liquid crystal and Piezo crystals, which reside in the bones, tissue intestines, teeth, and in the collagen arrays of connective tissue such as ligaments, tendon, cartilage, cellular structure and our DNA. They convert mechanical energy into electrical energy and vice versa. Crystal Quartz is made out of the same silica molecules present in our body. Our bodies contain tiny crystalline structures like sodium, iron, copper and other metals. Bones are thought to possess one of the same qualities of crystal quartz, the piezoelectric effect. When an electrical current that is formed by applying pressure to materials like crystals, certain ceramics, and bone is applied, for example when you are exercising and you are doing weight-bearing exercises or isometric exercises you’re creating these micro-currents in your bones that are actually believed to help to prevent bone loss. DNA molecules found in the nucleus of every cell are a hexagonal crystal shape. Crystal tetrahedrons form parallel helixes; the direction of twist of the helix determines the left or right-hand orientation. DNA also is in a Helix shape, and it’s in this crystal (DNA) that holds your unique information particular to you. Hair color, eye color etc. it is your blueprint. Crystals also hexagonal, hold information. Both quartz and DNA emit light, under particular conditions. With quartz, applying force will cause the crystal to acquire and electrical charge and to emit electromagnetic radiation or light, the Piezoelectric effect. The DNA molecule has been known to emit bio-photons of visible spectrum light on a periodic basis and has been compared to a week laser.

The fundamental geometrical pattern of quartz and water is the tetrahedron and we are over 70% water. Liquid crystals can flow similar to water. Even though all molecules tend to be aligned in one direction, individual molecules can move quite freely and change places with one another while maintaining their common orientation. Liquid crystals are ideal for the rapid intercommunication required for the highly coordinated and efficient energy transductions that enable organisms to act. There is a very compatible harmony between water and Crystal Quartz because of the similarity of angles. We become like antenna’s interacting, transmitting and transferring energy, similar to the way of Crystal Quartz.

When using or wearing Crystal Quartz it is helpful to know that works on many levels of being. It can both generate electromagnetism and expel static electricity. Crystal Quartz can be used as the amplifier of other stone energies, amplifying, storing, healing, absorbing and releasing and regulating energies.

The Wisdom and Art of Feng Shui: For thousands of years Feng Shui has been used to create auspicious energy flow within ones surroundings. Literally translated as Wind and Water or the harmony between nature and living beings, Feng Shui utilizes the delicate flow of universal life energy and can enhance your life. The elements: Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal, and Water are important in the foundation for Feng Shui balance and play a very important role in creating harmony in your environment.

Gemstones and Crystals have particular vibrations of the elements they were created with and have the ability to clear, influence, heal, protect, and to transform energy. This makes them great to use in creating your space. so for example you can your two rose quartz gemstones in the Southwest area of your home (this area is connected to relationships) with the intention of creating harmony, forgiveness and love in your relationships. You can also use rose quartz in the bedroom to radiate loving energy.

This custom-made necklace was a story that took shape. An interest in the stone Fluorite, the piece of Fluorite chosen reminded me of an old-fashioned lantern.

Gemstone: Sodalite: Absorbs Electromagnetic Pollution

Tags: , , ,

The Gemstone Sodalite has many great properties. This stone acts on the chakra of the throat and the third eye. Sodalite helps us to understand and get acquainted with ourselves. Sodalite helps us assess our strengths, weaknesses and so much more. One of the great things I learned about this stone is that it e also helps to eliminate electromagnetic pollution and hence is placed on the computers by many people. I put it to the test and placed it by several computers and electronic devises. I was amazed, after about a month the stone had completely changed. A once deep blue had tuned to a very pale even whitish. Wow!

Gemstones Through History:

Posted June 12, 2010 by Wisdom Art
Categories: Gemstone History and Foklore

Throughout history, the primary use for gems has been for healing and spiritual rituals. Although gems were rare and exhibited great beauty, the reason they were so precious was due to the power they imparted to their wearers.

They are storehouses of empowerment, transmitted through contact with one’s body. Kings and queens would have gemstones set in their crowns. They connected the monarchs with forces enabling them to rule guided by cosmic energies. Priests of different religions used gems in rings for similar reasons.

The inherent powers of gemstones are recognized by modern science in the technological uses of crystals in watches, lasers, and computers, but the more subtle potencies, such as their ability to promote physical healing in the body, or their power to help balance human emotions, elude modern science.
