The ‘Travelling Psychic’, Katy-K visits the Bead Gallery in Honolulu
Wow! ……. I think I’m in heaven.
So what made it different from the rest? The owners Jamie Yoshida and Jason Del Mundo for starters. This is no ordinary bead shop and you can feel the different amazing energy from the minute you walk in.
What sets it apart from other bead shops? The special attention you get from the minute you walk into the shop. Jamie is also gifted to be able to tune into her clients and assist them with their needs? They also know the meanings of all the gemstones and have other Spiritual symbolic beads available as well as too much more to mention in this article.
But wait I am getting ahead of myself here…..
On my recent trip to Hawaii my Manager in Hawaii, Emma asked me if I would come and visit her good friend Jamie in her bead shop and do a reading for her. My eyes lit up. Hmm, I am partial to bead shops, so that was a no brainer, yes, yes, yes. From the minute I walked in the energy hit me and it was no surprise to learn that they source their beads from different parts of the world but also they take them to Sedona to different vortexes and a Buddhist stupa to energise them. What is a Buddhist stupa you ask? It is a commemorative monument usually housing sacred relics associated with the Buddha or other saintly persons. Typically the ashes of Buddhist monks, and used by Buddhists as a place of meditation. So by now you should be starting to get the picture of why this bead shop is different.
After I finished my reading for Jamie, she gifted me with a beaded bracelet. Not just any old beaded bracelet as this bracelet had visited 3 vortexes in Sedona and a Buddhist stupa. It contained the following beads:
Amethyst – provides a connection to the Divine, improves concentration and reduces fears, enhances intuition and psychic powers
Rhodochrosite – aids emotional healing and to love yourself
Rhodonite – for acceptance and forgiveness, and to release blocked energy in the heart chakra, and to calm you
Orange Calcite – An energy amplifier that is believed to remove negative energy from our bodies and restore mental and emotional equilibrium. Gives a boost to psychic abilities and intuition.
Lotus charm – a symbol of purity of the body, spirit and mind and detachment. Rising above the murk to achieve enlightenment, and faithfulness.
I was impressed. I could feel the energy in the bracelet the minute I put it on.This was indeed a special gift. Then we got to discussing an idea I had to create a ‘KTK Spiritual Advancement’ bracelet, one that the students who participated in my workshops would have the opportunity to attend a workshop at the Bead Gallery and reproduce. What a great opportunity. In my mind I could see a Chakra bracelet made with natural gemstones. Jamie then suggested that we add Herkimer diamonds to make it even more powerful. I had never seen Herkimer diamond beads available of that size at any other bead shop that I had ever visited, this would indeed be a special addition. Immediately my Guides confirmed that there had to be 7 of each of the crystals and 7 herkimer diamonds.
We used the following crystals:
7 Red Garnet crystals – Associated with the first Chakra, it is a stone of physical love and relationships, and a spiritual stone of psychic protection. Regeneration and stability, utilization of creative energy, assists with working lovingly on the physical plane.
7 Carnelian crystals – Known as a stone of Motivation, endurance, leadership and courage. Said to attract prosperity, new resources, good luck and success. The crystal of ambition, drive and determination. Connects to the sacral Chakra
7 Citrine crystals – The stone of abundance, manifestation, imagination and personal will. Attracts wealth and prospertity, success and all good things. Connects to the solar plexus chakra
7 Peridot crystals – stone of compassion, protection, cleansing, rebirth and renewal. Lessens stress and promotes healing. Connects to the heart Chakra
7 Aquamarine crystals – Inspires trust, truth and letting go. Assists to overcome the fear of speaking. Connects to the throat Chakra.
7 Lapis Lazuli crystals – helps to create and maintain a connection between the physical and celestial plane, creating a strong spiritual connection. Promotes intuitive and psychic awareness. A symbol of wisdom and truth. Connects to the third eye Chakra.
7 Amethyst crystals – provides a connection to the Divine, improves concentration and reduces fears, enhances intuition and psychic powers
7 Herkimer quartz crystals – An attunement stone. The most powerful of all quartz crystals being doubly terminated they have the ability to not only transmit their own energies, but to receive spiritual energy and to amplify and focus it intently.
Jamie then hand stamped a spiral symbol, which is the symbol on my business card onto a gold heart, a symbol that I associate with, as I am born on valentines day. Amazing! I couldn’t of been happier.
I know that I will be finding my way back to the Bead Gallery on my next visit to Honolulu, Hawaii.
