1888 Nate's Take: "I sit with my friend Tristan every Thursday to discuss purpose...we have discovered many truths, but a fundamental realization we have come to is that each of us is already a purpose. That is to say, we by nature fulfill that which we are here to fulfill, even if we don't recognize or can't verbalize what that innate purpose is...I believe mine is to inspire creativity in others. The scale of effect any one of us can have is in direct alignment with how much attention we spend on this innate purpose. Maybe we affect 1 person, maybe 1 Million people. Our purpose is set, the scale of its effect is up to us."
For thousands of years, turquoise has been prized as a symbol of wisdom, nobility, and immortality. In many Native American cultures, it represents the great spirit in the sky and is often referred to as the Sky Stone. It’s believed that if a crack forms in the stone, it has taken the injury for its wearer.
A powerful warrior stone, Onyx helps stomp out negative thought patterns stemming from the most debilitating and toxic emotion of them all – fear. Include Onyx in your gem collection and always know that whatever happens, this powerful root chakra stone always has your back.

My Mother always said that if you find a feather it’s a symbol that you are on your true path, you should pick it up & keep it for luck on your journey. Commonly has represented everything from the center of the cosmos to luck. Used in countless cultures around the globe for rituals, ceremonies, as a status symbol or even a plain ol' writing tool the feather can also be a symbol of versatility.
