2020. With the New year started and Springtime right around the corner, we begin to feel a sense of renewal. We begin organizing our spaces and making room for fresh new decor, to give the feel of a fresh start. In the past I would head over to Ikea or Wayfare in search of some manufactured inspirational pieces. Only to find that the next year I would get fed up. All the stuff that I, along with millions of others, had invested in, lost its value and sense of purpose. I was guilty of being a typical consumer or manufactured goods.
It was only in the last few years where I realized that something felt wrong. And so I geared away from the world of manufactured goods and slowly began to experiment with things that were made by real people. Not machines. I purchased eggs from a local farmer, and found the taste changed completely. I began eating real fruit instead of popping vitamins. I began buying some clothing (not all Im still working on this) from local designers and found that I kept the clothes a lot longer and took better care of them. I began planting plants instead of buying them and found that they actually lived and I didn't kill them within the first week! I could go on, but the point is this...
"With every hand made creation comes real energy, and purpose.
The energy and intent of a person is put into his or her creations! I believe there is a soul link between every person and what they do. Wether it be food, clothing, furniture, art etc... The phrase "Made with love" is true. You can feel and taste it when someone serves your that homemade dish. And the same goes for everything else.
The thing that really struck me was this. I always told myself that
"Everything happens for a reason."
I asked myself.... What is the reason and purpose behind the sales of these big manufacturing companies? Is the intent behind these creations done for passion? For love? I think we all know the answer.
This spring I want you to experiment with this. Try getting that plant pot from someone who actually made it. Buy a dress from a local designer. And of course, if your looking to redecorate your space with some meaningful art, visit CrystalHealingPaintings.com And feel the difference for yourself.
