This month’s theme is “Connecting with Nature” As the sun continues to grow stronger each day, sparkling the energy in plants all around us to bud and bloom, it’s natural to experience a quiet awakening deep inside ourselves. This isn’t a coincidence, since spring is universally recognized in cultures around the world as the transitional season of rebirth and renewal. It’s an ideal time for exploring the possibilities of new beginnings. As you enjoy what we prepared for you this month, take some time to unpack the opportunities available to you while being endlessly grateful for this beautiful planet we call home.
Brown Jasper and African Turquoise Meditation Bracelet This was the spoiler and this is a winner! This meditation bracelet has a long black silk-like tassel that is 3 1/2 inches long and the bracelet does fit my wrist better than last months. The beads in this bracelet are brown jasper ~ in shades of tan, cream and milk chocolate ~ and African turquoise, which is a forest green. There are rose-gold tone beads spaced thru this bracelet with a nice textured oval bead above the tassel. In the photo below, the brown jasper looks more yellowish, but a true representation of the colors of the bracelet are in the photo above. RV $35.00
Brown Jasper ~ Base or Root and Earth Chakra Brown Jasper, called Egyptian marble, was one of the traditional Jaspers in Ancient Egypt used for amulets, ritual vessels, and jewelry. Native Americans and other indigenous societies carved it into arrowheads for luck and protection, and utilized the stone to call in rain. A quintessential Earth Stone, Brown Jasper is deeply connected to the planet as “home,” and engenders security and protection, nurturing and healing. Today Brown Jasper promotes ecological awareness and is highly effective in alleviating geopathic and environmental stress. It cleanses the physical and emotional body of toxins and negative thought forms, and repairs the aura, bringing stability and balance. Its frequency facilitates deep meditation and centering, and grants access to past lives for karmic healing. Learn more at Crystal Vaults

Red Onyx, Yellow Jade & Brass Earrings This is a first from Yogi Surprise ~ earrings!! I’ve been wanting earrings in here for a while ~ it is difficult because not everyone has pierced ears (but I do!) These are nice long dangling lever back earrings ~ about 2 1/4 inches long. The metal is brass and there are 3 square brass beads plus a nice open hoop, where red onyx stone sits inside ~ the color is like carnelian ~ a beautiful orange spice shade. Then, under the hoop, there 3 yellow jade stones, varying from a whitish color to a pale yellow. Very cool, very retro! I love these and these are fun spring/summer earrings! RV $18.00
Red Onyx Chakra ~ Root ~ Base ~ First Red Onyx helps prevent your personal energy from draining and offers protection. It is a grounding and controlling excess unwanted energies. It is used to help with childbirth, increase self-control and help with healing wounds.
Yellow Jade In Chinese, jade means “the most beautiful stone” and it was the royal gem in Ancient China. It was believed to have properties that represented wealth, friendship, loyalty and good fortune. Yellow jade is used to promote emotional balance and stability, luck, wisdom, long life and loving relationships. Jade is also a cleansing stone, helping to cleanse your body of toxins and heal your body

Another fantastic month from Yogi Surprise. The meditation bracelet is stunning and I love the earrings! I cannot wait to try the chocolate ~ it sounds wonderful and they have a great mission statement. I paid $25.00 for this box and received a RV of $61.00 and I feel the box contents do match that value this month!
