April is the month of the diamond, stunning sunsets, and a time to soak in the beauty of nature. This month, I look forward to basking in the sunshine, sketching new designs, working on our collaborations (excited to share more soon!) and traveling to Austin for a client hosted trunk show.
Let's explore what a diamond is and what it symbolizes, how it heals, feels, and what wearing LH diamonds (conflict free) can do for you in your life.
The term “diamond” originated from the ancient Greek word “adamas” which means invincible or unbreakable. True to its name, diamonds are the hardest known mineral in nature and have naturally become associated with strength and resilience. Diamonds go through extreme pressure in order to become the sparkling magic they encompass. How is this similar in your life? All of the pressures life gives you only serve as opportunities for more strength, growth, and more brilliance.
What does it mean to have a diamond mind? It means you are always trying to reach to your higher self in your thoughts and your imagination so that you can attract only the best for yourself and others. Train your mind to think light thoughts, without judgement or fear. And to always look for the best and remember that nothing will ever be perfect; it is our flaws which make us natural and human. We must have grace and mercy for ourselves, and for others. We are all just undergoing our own Alchemical process to become our best versions. Forgiveness and unconditional love accelerate our becoming our best diamond version.
In a marriage, the diamond symbolizes an unbreakable bond between two individuals. It is a symbol of trust, loyalty, and strength for the ups and downs of life. How can we be more like diamonds for our friends and family? We can be there for one another, and remind each other how to be loving and accepting of one another, flaws and all. We can be REAL, honest and transparent with each other. We do not want CZ relationships... We want the real thing, right!?
Diamonds who shine attract more diamonds, and the light continues to reflect and create more and more brilliance. In addition to their spiritual power and metaphorical value, a diamond has an unconquerable hardness and has been known since antiquity as a “Stone of Invincibility,” bringing victory, superior strength, and courage to its wearer. Diamonds promote fearlessness, and properties of protection. They are a symbol of wealth and manifesting abundance in one’s life, an amplifier of energies, and are highly effective in heightening the vibrations of other crystals for healing.
A spiritual symbol of perfection and illumination, diamonds activate the Crown and Etheric Chakras. They enhance inner vision and stimulate creativity, imagination, and ingenuity, opening the mind to the “new” and infinite possibilities.
The Diamond, in its rarity and beauty, is a symbol of purity and innocence, of love and fidelity, and embraces strength of character. It is indicative of the loving and open nature with which one came into the physical realm, and encourages the aspect of truth and trust.
May you use your diamonds as a spiritual tool and guide to reach higher, and to have faith in yourself, the Universe, and your loved ones. Choose diamond thoughts, relationships, and habits. You are loved and adored by the Universe, and your potential is limitless- just like the shine of a bright, bold diamond. This month is an auspicious and magical month to choose a diamond for yourself to symbolize this dedication to your intention and manifestation unfolding for you.
In April, I invite you to take a moment to appreciate your diamond qualities, and immerse yourself in the beauty of the world around you. Allow yourself to be inspired by the colors, textures, and patterns of nature and explore new creative endeavors. There is so much magic in store for you, claim it and receive it now.
Stay golden, stay light.
