  • Consider the stars. With our physical sense of sight, we can only see them as tiny twinkles in the heavens. Yet we know they are massive generators of enormous amounts of energy. That’s our physical perception of them as matter. But what about the spiritual dimension of the stars? What about the invisible, the non-physical that comes to us through other than our five senses?

    In graduate school I studied something called “perceptual geography.” One example of what I learned is that because of the density of the forest in their environment, pygmies would not kill a pig if they saw it far off. They perceived it as too small to feed the village. In other words, they lacked depth perception as we know it. Another example is that Polynesians can distinguish between 2000 – 3000 shades of green and blue and, thus, can literally see and make sense of water currents. Not only can I not read water currents but equally interesting, I am unable to match the blue in a sweater with the blue in a skirt without taking the sweater to the store with me!

    I wonder… Might there also be different perceptual possibilities related to what we can “see” in our connection to the stars?

    We know it is a vast Universe out there! Simultaneously, we know that everything is connected, interconnected and somehow related to everything else.

    Further, when it comes to knowledge, we know so much and so very, very little – especially when it comes to that which we cannot see, taste, touch, smell or hear. We have learned to trust what we can grasp with our senses but often have doubts about phenomena outside of senses, outside of knowledge, outside of language.

    Yet so much more is present and waiting for us to grasp it! I expect there is limitless bounty just beyond our field of physical perception.

    Let us entertain, for example, the possibility that we have companions in other dimensions who come from other places in our galaxy and beyond. Celestial Beings of Light from the stars. Our ancient relatives. We are already fully connected with and interconnected to them.

    They are present and available to us but, as we have free will, they wait for us to notice them, to invite them in, to ask for a relationship of support, assistance, and guidance.

    Infinite BlessSings are intended to support us in opening up our perceptual field so that, figuratively speaking, we can read the water currents and know the true size of the pig. In other words, they are numerologically and geometrically designed to open us to the possibility of what we may not currently perceive.

    The entire design of these necklaces is based on the number 7. There are 7 healing grid stones that form a 7 pointed star, the mystical star. There are 16 (reduces to 7) pearls on each side of the necklace near the clasp. There are 7 segments of chain, each with 7 links and another 7 pearls. The design surrounding the healing grid stones is also composed of 7s. (With the caveat that sometimes a necklace may call me to a slight variation or ‘mistake’…)

    The number 7 is the number of the Universe. It is a combination of 3 (soul) combined with 4 (body) and thus, is the number of integration of spirit and matter, integration of the invisible and the visible. Some words that have been used to describe 7 are spiritual, ethereal, other worldly, faith, sage, wisdom seeker…

    Infinite BlessSings to you as you both bring the stars to you and also venture out into the Galaxy!
