“Arista” - means happiness, safe, secure in Sanskrit.
The central nervous system is the foundation to our being and our receiver of consciousness. When the central nervous system is under stress, it goes into survival mode...triggering us to freeze, fight, or flee. When survival mode kicks in, a protective layer of fear goes up, creating a thick filter between our nervous system and consciousness. It’s in this separation that the mind and body lose connection with each other, causing us to also lose connection with others as we freeze, fight, or run away.
There is no need to shame these reactions, because they serve a valuable purpose in keeping us safe when there is trouble. But the effects of some trouble last longer than necessary, which then calls for the central nervous system to be tamed, like a feral animal. With an open heart, gentle coaxing, and lots of positive reinforcement, it can learn to feel safe again.
Treat your nervous system well in this time of stress. Be gentle with yourself and your thoughts. Take time in nature. Set aside time to listen to relaxing music. Mindfully move the body for at least 15 minutes a day with stretches or getting the blood moving with light exercise. Eat nourishing food. Burn a candle with a soothing fragrance. Soak in a warm bath. Connect with someone who lifts you up. Breathe.
Wear this bracelet/anklet to remind you to take care of your needs and tell yourself, “I am safe.”
This piece is made with colorful seed beads and labradorite stones on a stretchy cord. Perfect for stacking or wearing on its own.
This bracelet/anklet is made to order to fit your wrist or ankle. It is best when it is fitted without room to dangle, but not so tight to stretch the elastic when it’s being worn.
*In order to find your size, if you do not have a tape measure, take a string or shoestring and wrap it around your wrist or ankle. Then take a ruler and measure the string.
**This item only includes the bracelet described and might vary slightly from the one in the photo because it is made to order, and the stones are natural stones which vary slightly from stone to stone making each one a one of a kind piece. Any other bracelets in subsequent photos can either be found in the shop or have already been sold.
***Because this item is sized to fit your wrist it is considered a custom order and cannot be returned or exchanged.
Every package comes with a handwritten note with a little message. My goal is for every one of my customers to enjoy a truly unique and personable handmade experience. If this is a gift, please let me know and I can leave the note out or customize it to your preference.
