Pins - Yoga Jewelry
I believe that our thoughts and words make almost as much of a difference in the world as our actions.
Put negative thoughts and intentions out there, and you'll most likely end up in trouble. Think positively and send sincere wishes for peace and happiness to all living creatures and you're chances are you will reap positive rewards. If nothing else, you'll surely be much happier, which ultimately also means much healthier. So, as the famous slogan goes, just do it!
Wear this jewelry pin and you'll be expressing well wishes everywhere you go. Some people will know instantly what the three words mean, others will have to ask, giving you an opportunity to share something positive with a stranger.
Shanti is easy - it means peace. With a variety of interpretations, my favorite translation of namaste is "the light in me greets the light in you." Om, now that's more difficult. To me, it's almost undefinable, being the vibrational wave of everything, animate and inanimate. That's not the most common understanding, however. Om is often used in chants as a strong spiritual or mystical symbol, and can be considered to be one way to call God.
This lovely pin has the benefit of including all three words: namaste, om, and shanti, with the last two dangling freely. The seven colored glass beads, also hanging freely, represent the seven chakras, or energy sources, in the body.
Made of hand-hammered copper, this namaste jewelry is very lightweight and can easily be worn on a thin shirt or sweater. It's small, approximately 1.25" wide and 2.25" long.
