This blog post is written by the founder of DHARMA, Tatiana, all about how stones changed her life!
I always believed that life is a big challenge, one day you are here, another day you wake up and suddenly the whole story changes, but remember that life is about how you face your challenges.
When I was 21 years old I had my wrist full of bracelets, but I was met with some harsh opinions. “You look like a museum”, “you look like the lord of Sipán” (an ancient ruler). But it didn’t matter to me. To be honest I loved to wear jewelry. It has a deeper meaning for me.
By the time I left Peru for France, I was no longer wearing my bracelets as French fashion trends invaded me. Having high-end designers bracelets was the new thing, but what is meaningless jewelry? I would rather have a simple jewel with deep meaning.
After years in the fashion industry, I decided to interview for my first jewelry job. I was overjoyed to get it! The most joyous part was learning about the stones. At that time, I was not familiar with the properties of stones, only with the beauty and the value. When I learned about stones and their meaning, I began to understand the importance of wearing a piece of jewelry with meaning.
When you wear something that has some meaning for you, you are available to connect with your stone and when you begin to connect is when the magic happens.
This is because you are giving it energy and the stone also responds to you with energy, so you are available to feel the connection. You only need to believe to feel it.
I really believe that the purpose in life is to find what you really love and to make it part of your life. Do what you love and wear it with meaning.
