Moonstone, a stone for new beginnings, channels inner growth and strength. Soothing and calm it helps with emotional instability and stress, and stabilizes the emotions, providing serenity. Moonstone enhances intuition, promotes inspiration, success and good fortune in love and business matters which is what I need right now as I start my new endeavors.The moon, in feng shui and many other spiritual traditions, represents divine femininity. The cycle of the moon affects the life giving essence of women. It connect us to nature, like the moon that controls the waves of the ocean, our lives also ebb and flow. Compassion and empathy is also the nature of the moonstone. It is yin, introspective, receptive, and connected to our subconscious. The serene and tranquil energy of the moonstone welcomes creativity, restoration, and motherly protection. It also acts like a mirror so we can see our true selves.
To calm my worries and self doubt about what I am embarking on, I need strength and support to carry on, give it time to evolve, to combat the resistance of envy and resentment I’ve been feeling pushing me back. The guilt of wanting to succeed and risk over shadowing others in the process. I believe that the light I am trying to bring which causes shadows will impart brilliance onto others. Why is it we feel apologetic for wanting more than the mundane, considering the feelings of others before our own? To tip toe on eggshells all of our lives especially as women because we are taught to put the needs of others before our own or we are seen as aggressive? To be that nurturing figure while neglecting to nurture ourselves?While creating this vanity, I strove for the light of love. I feel calm and serene when I look at her. The subtle play of pink, blue, and pearl ushering contemplation as it clears my mind from all the barrage of noise drowning out the loving voice saying you are beautiful, you are worthy, you are so much more than the belittling thrown at you, you are safe, you can be happy, you can follow your dreams and who cares about those who tell you that you will not succeed or want you to fail?
I filled her with the healing light that we all need. Ethereal, ephemeral, and embracing, her loveliness is contagious. You feel beautiful in her presence, seeing in the mirror all the dreams you have of who you want to be that you’ve pushed down into the depths of your subconscious as the daily grind in life has you choose practicality.I am not a practical person. I live in my head and in my heart. I get bored easily with routine which is why I love painting furniture. I can create something new and different without have to go anywhere. I get depleted easily around people. I need solitude that isn’t loneliness. Having a purpose is what drives me to live. I feel too deep, love too much, and think too much. I used a myriad of Rustoleum’s metallic sprays to create this subtle finish. I used redesign with prima’s exotic birds transfer and magnolia. The top has Modern Master’s shimmerstone plaster polished to a pearly finish. I chose simplicity this time. Clean and airy, it is devoid of clutter. I hope you are at peace when you look at her.
