Focus and Connection


Lori Zwermann of the Oklahoma City Spirituality Examiner has written this lovely article on finding the time and tools to help you focus on your spirituality. I can't tell you how many people ask me, or repeatedly ask on message boards related to spirituality how they can reconnect to their path. Often the first step is just to remove yourself from the stress of everyday life.

I use Nag Champa incense and meditation. It's really the smell of the incense that works best for me. I don't know exactly why, but it almost immediately starts to bring my heartrate and blood pressure down.

Thank you to Lori for linking to my Hera Prayer Rope in our Etsy shop in her article!

The Saints

Saint Medals are sort of hard to come by, especially ones that are affordable. I have a great many and I can get more, so I thought I'd post the list here to see if there is any that I have that you are looking for. I'll be making single decade rosaries, Saint amulets and earrings in the next few weeks, so if there is something you are interested in, please let me know. This list was made for my notes, so some of them don't actually say "St." or "Saint." The ones that have a slash, with another name are two-sided medals.

Here is the list of the medals I have:

St. Anna
St. Agatha
St. Agnes / St. Cecilia
St. Anthony
St. Augustine / Monica
St Barbara
St Benedict
St. Clare
St. Christopher
Divino Nino de Columbia
St. Dominic
St. Dymphna
Ecce Homo / Mater Dolorosa
St. Francis de Assisi
Francis de Sales
St. George
St. Ignatius
San Juan Batista
John Paul II / Our Lady of Czestoch
John the Apostle
St. Joseph
La Pieta
Maria Goretti
Martha / Mary Magdalene
Maria Rosa Mystica
Mary Magdalene
Our Lady of Knock
St. Patrick / St. Bridget
St. Sebastian
St. Therese
