How To: Layer Your Altar

November_ Blog_layers

“When I think of my jewelry, I think of it as an extension of who I am.  Each piece has a story and represents a time and place where I am in my life. The pieces I choose to wear each day differ depending on how I am feeling but I always follow a couple of simple rules for layering my altar…

1. Heart Center:

When layering on my jewelry, I always start with the pieces closest to my heart which is usually my Om and Zodiac necklaces on 18 inch chains.

2. Layer On Strength: 

My 18 inch chain is followed by a 24 or 32 inch chain that hangs at my Solar Plexus Chakra. The solar plexus is the core of your self where your will, power, and assertiveness originate so that’s where I love wear a symbol of strength or wisdom like a Mandala or a Hamsa.

3. Meditative Mala:

I always finish with a gemstone mala that I have usually made myself. An authentic gemstone mala that’s infused with my own intention works to ground and remind me that I can always find inner piece when I turn within.

4. Arm Yourself: 

Last but not least, my wrists are always filled with bracelets of healing gemstones and symbols which all have their own meanings. Rather than select my stack based on color,  I allow my intuition to guide me to exactly what I need.
