Amulets & Talismans, “MIRACLE ICONS” another Fashion statement… WIN ONE HERE

miracle iconsPopular wisdom tells us that each cause or circumstance has a patron saint that can protect us from that occurrence.  Some of us have always had some sort of lucky charm or have worn a reproduction of a saint as a preventative measure.  Usually given to us by a mother or loved one this is supposed to be our safety net during life’s tribulations.miracle icons 12

MIRACLE ICONS goes beyond the conventional  wisdom and contends that we need all the help we can get ………but on a much more “democratic” wisdom which is any saint we wear can help us deal with whatever problem we may be encountering at any time.   In other words, these medals are the good luck charms for everything and anything.  The philosophy, which was borne from the founder’s experience with a dear friend who was just diagnosed with an inoperable form of cancer, and turned into a healing tool of sorts.  When the friend was given the medals, she was visibly touched and for some reason was very heartened by the sentiment…………….long story short, she recovered and is in remission.  Mary Jo Pane, founder, then thought that maybe this can be used as an aid to bolster confidence and well being due to post 9/11 complications which so many of our NY neighbors suffered through at the time.miracle icons Rolling Stone 11 07

Ms. Pane then decided to market the essence of MIRACLE ICONS to select retailers and has been constantly surprised that her sentiment is shared by the owners of these pieces.  Her legion of celebrity owners includes Ricky Martin, Halle Berry, Bruce Springstein, Johnny Depp and Justin Timberlake.  The so called “religious jewelry” has taken on a life of its own and has been a consistently popular selling item across the country.  The medals are acquired via agents who scour the flea markets of Eastern and Western Europe in search of these items which have the fine patina of age from the mid 19th century through the 1950’s.  Once they have been received on this side of the ocean, they are then hand sorted by category.  miracle icons 1Once the sorting is completed, the process of building the jewelry begins.  The medals/icons serve as charms (amulets or talismans) which are suspended from a bracelet or necklace.  The bracelets tend to be of the stretch beaded variety and the necklaces would be of chain or leather or any other suitable material which would reflect the new contemporary image of the jewelry.miracle icons New Image3miracle icons Oprah_02_2010

For almost 10 years now, MIRACLE ICONS has been made by hand in New York City and as of this year is now available on line on its own website.  One of the most compelling features about the collection is that NO 2 pieces are alike and there is no specification as to which saint will appear on your item.  The prices start at $70 USD and top off at around $600 USD…………..they are heirlooms of the future generation.

Four Ways to Reduce Stress

Single and stress free - it's possible

Single and stress free - it's possible

Being single isn’t simple. In fact, singleness can be a leading factor to your stress levels which come from a mental instability. It’s difficult to figure out who is single and who is straight. The SHI Symbol relieves a lot of the stress for you, but there are other simple ways that you can relax, take a deep breath and enjoy your first date.

Stress is not always as negative as it is purported to be. In fact, it can frequently be the catalyst that gets us going and provides us with the energy and motivation to accomplish our goals. However, if it is allowed to gain too much of a footing in our lives, stress can have dangerous physical and psychological consequences. With this in mind, here are four of the most effective ways to relieve stress. They won’t eliminate it altogether, but a little stress isn’t such a bad thing.

Method 1.” Exercise. You’ve heard people talk about endorphins. They are naturally occurring opiates, chemicals secreted in your brain which make you feel good. By getting your body moving, you can not only enhance your level of physical fitness, but you can lower your inner tensions as well.

Method 2.” Meditate. Remember those endorphins we talked about? Running a marathon isn’t the only way to nudge your brain into producing them. Scientific studies have suggested that an on-going practice of quiet contemplation or inner focus will lower your blood pressure and lighten your psychic burden. Some forms of meditation encourage you to clear your mind, while others promote focus on a particular concept or mantra word as a way to find inner peace. Regardless of the specific discipline, however, meditation, as well as its more physical counterpart yoga, might be the solution to your overabundance of stress.

Method 3. Write it down. Sometimes, our inner tensions build up to such an extent that they become distorted. We may not even know what is bothering us anymore. Journaling can be a terrific way to reconnect with yourself. Set up a realistic daily writing schedule and stick to it. During the specified time frame, sit down and write whatever comes into your head. Do not proofread or self-edit. When you’re stumped for something to say, just write gibberish. The key to this exercise is that, in a few weeks, you will be able to look back on your handiwork. You’ll be amazed at everything that’s going on in your head. Now you’ll know what you’re dealing with, making it easier to take corrective steps to reduce your stress.

Method 4. Take action. Once you have recognized the source of your excessive stress, it’s time to confront it head-on. Take steps to heal that destructive personal or work relationship, for instance. Devise ways to get your job done more efficiently so you’re not always under the gun. If money is at the root of your stress, ask yourself what you can do to ease the pressure.

Finally, don’t be afraid to reach out for help. Our lightning-fast, hyper-intense society creates stress at unsustainable levels for countless people. There are social workers, psychologists and clergy specially trained in helping you achieve the relief you seek. You don’t have to live with dangerously high stress for another minute.
