Commissioned to artist Natasha Diak, this talisman was inspired by our founder Karla’s own path to healing. Let it be a shield to protect you, a blanket to hug you and an emblem to empower you to move forward.
HOW IT HEALS:
One of the greatest lessons that cancer has taught me is the power of positive intention. While we might not always have the power to completely cure ourselves, we have more control than many of us realize over how we experience pain, hardship and recuperate from trauma or illness.
I wanted to create a piece that could be a talisman of strength and a protective layer of gratitude, strength and hope for not only myself, but women throughout the world who might be in need of it.
The healing powers of this piece come from the intention of its creation, the beacon of hope it can be within your own family and circle and the reiki energy that has been infused into it.
- The Phases of the Moon show time as a great and are a reminder of the cycle of life. With pain comes healing and potential for growth.
- The Hands in the middle and on the side of the design represent your own community and inner circle, as well as the community of women that each own their own healing scarf.
- Circle of Women are the many aspects of you and your soul or all of the strong and inspiring women meet in your lifetimes. You possess your own unique gifts and are on your own soul journey.
- The Snake a celebration of how a snake is able to shed its skin multiple times throughout its life. We too have the ability to live new versions of ourselves. You are not shackled to who you were in the past, no matter who that might have been.
It is my hope the Healing Scarf will allow you to harness your own positive intentions and energy and will act as a link to a community of empowering women, both those in your own life and those with their own Healing Scarf throughout the world.
I hope that you find comfort and love within this piece.
Eternity – Whatever we might face, we all find our own resilience and a way to endure. You have found recovery and healing in the past and can face whatever might be next for you, whether it is pain or potential for good.
The Words – Healing, Gratitude, Reflection, Connection. Surrounding this design are small mantras we hope will inspire and encourage you in discovering your life’s greatest values and where you hold gratitude. We all need to take care of ourselves and address our own needs and desires. Then, we can pass on as much love and support as possible to others.
