Since shedding all my possessions in search of truth and freedom, I’ve experienced an interesting shift in my relationship to ‘stuff.’
I have, in fact, gathered more possessions since I left for Cambodia three years ago with a 20L backpack. The difference is that these things now serve one of the above purposes, either ‘truth’ or ‘freedom’.
We bought a car in Mexico, which easily falls into the ‘freedom’ category and was one of the best decisions we made on this journey, allowing us to drive across Mexico, Guatemala and the US.
I have bought a few pieces of clothing, most of which are brightly coloured and locally made to reflect a story of a country or place.
I’ve gathered a few pieces of jewellery with great meaning to me. A lotus flower ring I purchased in Bali to symbolize my spiritual journey and a gorgeous Mexican spiral ring given to me by my dear friend, Alison.
Beads made from Beans. Mala beads made from the sacred Rudraksha seed which I infuse with intention every time I meditate. A Guatemalan huipil. Woven blankets from Chiapas. A Montana Amethyst crystal which called to me from a basement ‘rock shop’ in Whitefish.
Books. LOTSA books to serve, inspire and entertain me on my journey.
To me, these pieces serve ‘truth’, for they are an expression of where I’ve been, who I am and who I am becoming.
So when I received an email from a young guy making simple, meaningful, jewellery, I took notice.
There was something about his email which was different to the others. It was authentic and kind and real. I checked out his website and fell in love with his mission to spread love via his creations.
Loverope is a customized, hand-stamped bracelet, to be worn as a reminder of an intention, person, emotion or thought.
I knew straight away that I wanted the Kundalini yoga mantra, ‘Sat Nam’ stamped on my bracelet, which loosely translates to ‘Name of Truth.’
It’s a mantra I often meditate on by chanting it in time with my pulse. Having the words inscribed on a bracelet to wear at all times is a wonderful reminder of who I really am and what my purpose is –
To search for truth, discover truth, surrender to truth and express truth.
