Sometimes Everyone Wins - {JEWELRY GIVEAWAY}

Out of my frustration for feeling like there aren't many alternatives to the bar scene after dark, I began to think of ways that I could "party" my way. When my friend Val and I organized a visit for her to come here from Chicago, I really wanted to do something awesome - to party and have a good time, to bring my favorite people together to meet each other and enjoy each other's company. So, it seemed a perfect time to  organize a day of fun and love just for the girls. I called it the "FEMpowered Day Of Sacred Joy" (Joy being Val's middle name). We gathered to simply celebrate being womb'en and being surrounded by womb'en. Some of us brought our talents and/or goods to share with the group. There was massage, dancing, readings, anointings, henna, a clothing and goods swap and so much more. We had so much to offer there wasn't time to do it all!! This is certainly going to be a staple in our social lives. I'd love to do something like this at least every other month.

One of the things I went prepared to do was have my pal Mikki take photos of me in my "little black dress" for a contest that the JW Marriot of Down Town Grand Rapids is having during their Original Little Black Dress Party this Friday night. She did SUCH an amazing job that I had a hard time choosing which photo to use! Regardless of whether I win the contest or not, the experience of getting dressed up with my girls and celebrating my beautiful curves was quite enriching and I will value the photos forever. Here are some of my favorites:


The one I have chosen for the contest is this one. Super simple, peaceful, beautiful, curvy and elegant.

Now the fun part! 
You probably knew I was going to ask you to go and vote on this photo to help me win a night out with my man  - but, I'm crafty and know how to motivate. SO - yes, please go and "like" this photo on the JW Marriot Grand Rapids page, but if you SHARE the photo I will enter you into a drawing for this Sterling Silver & Labradorite necklace which would go well with any little black dress!

Winner will be announced Saturday, March 9!!

Must have also "liked" the photo on the JW Marriot page
Multiple shares = multiple entries
Winner will be selected by Random.org

What's Labradorite all about?
Iridescent Labradorite is a highly mystical and protective stone, a bringer of light. It raises consciousness and connects with universal energies. Labradorite deflects unwanted energies from the aura and prevents energy leakage. It forms a barrier to negative energies shed during therapy. It can take you into another world or into other lives. A stone of esoteric knowledge, it facilitates initiation into the mysteries. 

Labradorite aligns the physical and etheric bodies and accesses spiritual purpose. It raises consciousness and grounds spiritual energies into the physical body. This stone stimulates intuition and psychic gifts including the art of "right timing," bringing messages from the unconscious mind to the surface and facilitating their understanding.

Psychologically: Labradorite banishes fears and insecurities and the psychic debris from previous disappointments, including those experienced in past lives. It strengthens faith in the self and trust in the universe. I t removes other peoples projections, including thought forms that have hooked into the aura.

Labradorite calms an overactive mind and energizes the imagination, bringing up new ideas. Analysis and rationality are balanced with the inner sight. Labradorite brings contemplation and introspection. Synthesizing intellectual thought with intuitive wisdom, it is an excellent dispeller of illusions, going to the root of a matter and showing the real intention behind thoughts and actions. This stone brings up suppressed memories from the past.

Labradorite is a useful companion through change, imparting strength and perseverance. A stone of transformation, it prepares body and soul for the ascension process.

HEALING: Labradorite treats disorders of the eyes and the brain, relieves stress and regulates metabolism. It treats colds, gout, and rheumatism, balances hormones and relieves menstrual tension, and lowers blood pressure. Labradorite can be used as a witness during radionic treatment, pinpointing the cause of the dis-ease.
