Stumbled upon this lovely #reminder of the importance of #selfconfidence in the #progress of yourself and of the #world, in the #dalailama's little #book of #wisdom. Without self-confidence, one may never realize their full #potential. When people are unaware of their #capabilities, they aren't capable of #inspiring the world. Which is what we need now more than ever! #Believe in yourself so you can make the world a more #positive place. Something I need to remind myself too. โค

San Diego and other Southern California residents!!! I am planning my first crystal gathering where we can come together in real life to connect, do crystal healing workshops, in-person crystal shopping, eat home cooked vegan food, get honest and real, and much more! I am planning for the first one to take place in December. Send me a message, comment, or email with your name and email if you want to join. I will send out all details soon. ๐Ÿ’œ โ€ข These will be small, intimate gatherings, so the sooner you let me know youโ€™re in, the better. โ€ข I am eager to connect further with likeminded souls and raise the vibration of the collective with you, face to face. This internet thang can get so diluted and I think this will be a very positive shift. ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ Send me a message! ๐ŸŒฑ If I already spoke with you and received your info, donโ€™t worry, I still have you written down. ๐Ÿ˜˜

Itโ€™s alllll in the details - especially the hidden detail on the back ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ˜ฝ Iโ€™ve always been one to flow with the winds of inspiration, no matter where I find my mind going. If I envision something, I bring it to life...or else it will play over and over and over again in my head until itโ€™s made tangible. Then I pour my whole self into it. This piece was one of those ideas and I couldnโ€™t be more happy with how it turned out. My love and I designed it digitally on a gorgeous 3D elf character ๐Ÿง๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ and everything was then hand-built into reality. Crystals are healing, energetic, and powerful - so are we...when we come together, we are even more so. Each stone aligns with a respective this case, Throat, Heart, and Solar Plexus, and brings a more fluid, direct connection to their healing powers. ๐Ÿ‘ I want to see this beautiful piece being rocked by a badass babe on the playa at Burning Man or wherever the hell else someone feels like wearing it. ๐Ÿ‘Š๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ˜ I can attest to its power when worn ๐Ÿ’œ Excited to make more one of a kind pieces like this one. ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ
Find it in my web ๐ŸŒˆ store and make it yours. ๐Ÿ–ค

Doing a lot of reminiscing and went way, way back on my feed tonight. I found this custom medallion I made around a year ago or so, and Iโ€™m seriously feeling the vibes I felt as I was creating it. I have a strong urge to make more sacred geometry medallion style pendants. So, I just might have to. ๐Ÿค“๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ’œ

Dusting off the old cobwebs from my vocal chords to bring you a new healing meditation - a short, Throat Chakra crystal sound healing from me and my very amazing love, @jmckeehen. Feel free to OM and sing along. โ€ข Itโ€™s hard for me to explain just how difficult it is for me to post this, as I still fight against old perceived views of myself that I acquired in some of my darkest days (if you read my long post the other day you, you know what I am talking about). ๐Ÿ–ค I just found out an old friend passed away in a car crash and itโ€™s an even greater push to stop being so afraid - life is too short. ๐Ÿ–ค Itโ€™s been about a year since I used my voice like this, which is insane, because I used to sing every single day. It has been a long, yet beautiful journey of opening myself back up to loving myself fully and letting my Throat Chakra flow. Jeremy and I met doing music and we still love making music together to this day, so we committed to follow through with something weโ€™ve wanted to do for quite some time and create sound healing music for you all. We picked up this Quartz crystal singing bowl (tuned to the Throat Chakra) and decided to do a sound healing, not only for ourselves, but also for the crystals and the collective - we recorded it to share with you. I still find a deep part of myself holding back whenever I sing, dance, etc. but like I said before, there is only growth in stepping outside of your comfort zone, pushing your self-limitations, and getting so sick of your own mental bullshit that you JUST LET GO. I know so many of us feel like we stifle our truth and authenticity out of fear, but I PROMISE you that you have what it takes to tell your demons to f*** off and step into your power. It takes constant work, but itโ€™s worth it. The time is now.
The sound quality isnโ€™t great on this video because it was an impromptu recording, but we will be whipping out our professional sound stuff and purchasing more singing bowls, so we can post them to YouTube for you all to enjoy full length sound and crystal healing ceremonies. We are so excited to share this journey with you. Sending our love.
- Amaris & Jeremy ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’œ

Crystal meditations come in many unique forms - I get lost in the moment of studying each piece and letting their energy guide me to place them in thoughtful patterns. โœจ I am grateful I get to work with these Carnelian and heart Jade cabochons, and make beautiful crystal jewels.

Colorful, floating crystal balls - this is what I imagine space to be like ๐ŸŒŒ๐Ÿ˜Ž
Thank you to everyone who read and left a comment on my previous post. I look forward to responding, but I definitely have to send my gratitude out into the universe for all the love. Itโ€™s crazy how lonely life can feel for so many, even when we are all so connected through the internet. We often only see the best parts of peopleโ€™s lives featured on IG, which can make loneliness more prevalent - it also makes raw authenticity so valuable. This page is for my business, but my business/art is also a representation of who I am. Itโ€™s always been about โ€˜Conscious Expressions of Universal Loveโ€™. A lot of us are small business owners, sharing parts of our souls through our work and that shit is so important to me. Our humanity doesnโ€™t have to get lost in the sea of corporate interests and fear. Just as much as I make this page, you all make it too and I am seriously so grateful for this community.
If you want to take part in the healing challenge yesterdayโ€™s post was a part of, look for the main flyer under the hashtag #10daysofhealing...some prizes are up for grabs from @blueridgehemp, @gaiacollective, @daughtersofculture, @majusuperfoods, & @guidelesscandles ๐Ÿ’œ

I am about to get real honest for #10daysofhealing, which encourages outward expression of thoughts as a form of healing. My topic is โ€˜releaseโ€™ โ€ข You all know that Iโ€™ve spent years battling the ups and downs of chronic illness (diagnosed as Crohnโ€™s Disease, Psoriatic Arthritis, and Lupus). What you donโ€™t know is that Iโ€™ve been sickly since I was a baby. Whatever the possible reasons for why, it has been extremely difficult for me to find what allows me to feel better (although my art, diet and exercise have played the most positive role in my healing). Iโ€™ve been in and out of hospitals, withering away at 98 lbs with yellowing skin, because my body rejected every bit of food I consumed - that is a tiny picture of it all. I wanted to die so that I could end the suffering that I truly believed I was just put on this earth to endure.
I ran the gauntlet with prescribed medications that only made me feel worse and dealt with people (some I loved with my entire world) telling me that I must be faking it all. Not knowing how to make people understand how I felt, I was isolated and lonely.
Through my illness and very manipulative/narcissistic relationships, I lost all confidence and belief in myself. I stopped singing and dancing (2 of my fav things in this world to do) and hid in my comfortable shell, where I felt no one could touch me. SURPRISE, SURPRISE - I became sicker, because I bottled up EVERYTHING that made me, ME.
It took me a long time to let go of the pain I was allowing to hold me down and take back my power, but I did it -by viewing my experiences as opportunities to make me stronger, instead of weaker. I did it by finally letting go of the pain and allowing light into my life - by singing & dancing, not accepting mental abuse, and speaking my truth. Sometimes, my body purges years, upon years, of darkness and pain that surfaces from deep within me. Itโ€™s uncomfortable, but necessary.
The day I decided to free myself from the shackles of fear and my own mind, was the moment I felt release. You see my happiness, art, and gratitude, but itโ€™s a product of my experiences. The things that used to make me feel bad, now make me more (cont.๐Ÿ‘‡)

Handmade Third Eye Abalone crown available in my shop ๐Ÿ‘ Everything is copper electroformed, including the trippy eyelashes - amazing how the copper formed in little balls at the points of the lashes.โœจ The 3 Chakra healing, warrior body armor you see portions of here, is also available! All created to bring the wearer closer with the healing energies of these Earth treasures. ๐Ÿ’Ž
I created these pieces after a long, uninspired state of dealing with chronic pain/illness that was pushing me into a state of feeling nothing at all - as strange as that sounds. Through all that time, I was purging some major blockages that really needed to go, so I could finally go deeper into my own soul. Creating these pieces was a spiritual experience and reminded me of why I do what I do and love it so much. Much more jewelry is coming again...and Iโ€™m ready to pour my fuckin soul into it. ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ

Itโ€™s been a little while since Iโ€™ve gotten personal, although connection & love is what Amarisland was founded upon. I took this picture with the intention of showing you guys how this Blue Apatite Throat Chakra choker looks when worn, but whenever I look at it, I remember how I felt in that moment - super fucking sad, but also very calm.
I shared about it on @gemsorceress, so some of you may have seen it there - but Iโ€™ve dealt with states of depression throughout my life, often times driven by chronic illness and pain. That sadness is not really the point of this post, but rather how amazing it is that we all can make it through hell and back, multiple times, to grow into even stronger and happier individuals. It makes me grateful for life and EVERYTHING it encompasses, and how I have LEARNED that itโ€™s ALL beautiful. I still get sad, Iโ€™m living a human experience - the difference between my past and now, though, is that I know everything will be alright and how in control of my well-being I really am.
Pain shows us what we need to work on, and for me, it was that Iโ€™ve been holding back too much of my truth because of FEAR. Itโ€™s not a coincidence that Iโ€™ve been so drawn to making Throat Chakra jewelry ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ’Ž๐Ÿ‘ And ever since Iโ€™ve opened myself back up, the synchronicities have been loud & clear. โ€ข So, if youโ€™re going through something right now, remember that itโ€™s ok. Itโ€™s ok to FEEL and, in fact, you should. Listen to it so you can heal it, just donโ€™t let it consume you. Youโ€™re never ever alone and I love you. ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ

Learn to let go of it all - you do not need to spend so much energy attempting futilely to control everything. When we are still and centered among the chaos, and we release our attachment to outcomes, life truly begins. We are infinitely so much more than our existence here wants/leads us to believe - have faith in your divine nature and free yourself from self-inflicted limitations. You are truly everything. ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ”ฎ๐Ÿ’œ
Enjoy this pink and purple harvest of love I created for you to meditate on ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ’•
