So what does a COW have to do with SoulKu? We think it all comes down to our business model.See, when things really change for the better in a rural tribal village - it's because the women get together and buy a cow. They build community around the care for the cow, they nourish their children with the milk from the cow and they sell the milk to have the money to buy another cow.Eventually, that one cow creates such a profound change within the community that the community is transformed forever.That's how it is with SoulKu. Yes we sell really unique, meaningful, gemstone jewelry AND, just as important, we are committed to our stay-at-home mom business model and to paying them a wage that they deserve-not just what we can get away with by law.It's a way of doing business that honors the heart and soul of each person who works with us, shares their lives with us and grows in community with us.In turn the support that they feel is transferred into the beautiful jewelry that they make and that you buy and wear or give. We've heard it again and again...you can literally feel the love in each piece.And as we grow the impact on not just our community, but your community, is exponential.Your purchases keep the circle of community going and going and going.Together we can prove that women working together, in community can change the way business is done.Thank you for all your support, your purchases, your enthusiasm. We feel it, are in deep, deep gratitude for it and know how blessed we are. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you for helping with our cow. :)"Though she be but little, she is fierce!"-William Shakespeare

"We are Divine enough to ask and we are important enough to receive."-Wayne DyerI think a lot of times, as women and as moms we think we can/need to do it all. I don't know about you, but deep down there is something inside me that finds a particularly heroic identity in carrying as much of the load as I possibly can and proclaiming loudly "I am woman, hear me roar!"There is a certain vibrational energy to that mode that can be rough, hard, impenetrable.I don't know if it's the last vestiges of our mother's woman's movement, the current movement or the fact that the recession took so many good men down to devastating financial lows...but most women I know, do it all.They work full or part time, they do the house and the child care and all that comes along with that. They are the problem solvers, the finders of all lost things, the cooks, the maids, the chauffeurs, the secretaries, the lovers, the wives, the mothers, the teachers, the friends.And whether it's by design or not - what I've noticed lately is that the harder I face the world with this "I can and will do everything" mentality the less spiritual headway I make.

Is there an issue in your life that you'd like to work some sort of healing into? An Intuitive Crystal/Gemstone Healing Reading can help you to understand just what sort of healing your mind/body/soul is craving to move forward on your path.How can crystals and gemstones help you ask? Anything with an inherent harmony can act like a tuning fork to our bad patterns and help us to retune ourselves to return to the original organic natural patterns of energy that belong to our bodies/hearts/minds/spirits, our Source energy.
A good piece of music can work wonders, as well as a beautiful piece of art, a dance, a happy personal exchange, or anything else in harmonic integrity in terms of energy patterns.
Anything can heal us if we are open to suggestion by external tuning fork of another’s harmony. Being open, in a receptive mode, is the key.
Gemstones radiate pure patterns. Gemstones resonate with absolute consistency. Gemstones sing their incredible songs of structure, balance, wavelength and frequency and can bring us back into harmony.What's even more exciting is that your spirit already knows what you need. You can use your own intuition to find out what stone will help your get your mojo back - and who doesn't need that?!Think about a situation that is in need of healing in your life and then ask yourself, "What crystal or gemstone could I draw benefit from right now?" Once you have it clear in your heart and mind, look at the crystals/gemstones below and choose the one that feels best.
