Today people are beginning to understand the importance of both the scientific and the more mystical aspects of crystals. The way they are balanced, the frequencies they emit, and their ability to store a tremendous amount of information makes crystals essential to modern technologies. And as our ancestors intuitively used them, we, too, turn to them for divination practices, healing rituals, spiritual advancement, and adornment.
Unless you are a chaos magician : ) then, belief becomes true/vital by; striving against it in consciousness, and by giving it form, not by the striving of faith.
Belief exhausts itself by confession and non resistance. Believe not to believe, and in a degree you will obtain its existence.
For me, Plath's poem is about detachment, disillusionment & inadequacy - her melancholic mind fails to comprehend the beauty of its surroundings, owing to the despair that dwells within her mind and soul.
But this poem also reminds me of the importance of walking your own path, never mind institutions and everyone else's opinion - do you own thing
It's not meant to be a downer of a ring!
This beefy bronze pinky ring was produced as a one-off prototype. It is engraved with a line from Sylvia Plath's poem - The moon and the yew tree are engraved as symbols, as are the grave stone crosses. The snake, represents wisdom and love. UK size J ½ but it can be adjusted up to one full size larger. If you would like a similar ring, please email with your specifications and one will be made specially for you. .
Your heart rate is tied in to your breathing rate - slow breathing practices have been adopted in the modern world across the globe due to their health benefits - but, the act of controlling one’s breath for the purpose of restoring or enhancing one’s health has been practiced for thousands of years amongst eastern cultures (such as pranayama).
Controlled, slow breathing appears to be an effective means of maximising HRV and preserving autonomic function, both of which have been associated with decreased mortality in pathological states and longevity in the general population. SO breath long and prosper my friends.
