Imagine... a movement inspired by the arts to open the eyes of Americans to the plight of their own people. Imagine, through art, music and poetry, we are shining a much needed light on our own crisis: HOMELESSNESS
Art4TheHomeless was once a blog called Colors of Ink with Blogcharm, which closed down. Nutang, became the new home of Colors of Ink and was renamed Art4TheHomeless, by a really good friend, Samantha Medd. She is now the Co-Founder of Art4TH.
Now Art4TH is a 501(c)(3) Nonprofit Organization that unites artists of all venues to promote homeless awareness in the US.
Art4TH does this through the Art4TH Webzine, a monthly online magazine that features a musician whose music plays throughout the website, a feature artist, and a feature writer while also featuring a homeless relief organization. All artists featured retain their copyrights and all of it is free. If you would like to be a featured artist, musician, or writer contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org

It's been a few months now--since February actually--that I have been into stones. I started out with a chrysocolla, amethyst, and black tourmaline. Now I have several little friends and I am very connect to them. I feel their energies.
Moldavite, I had to save up for, but its totally cool. I have a couple pieces of jet, an ocean jasper, sunstone, mookite jasper, unakite jasper, several of the double ended laser quartz wands, a clear quartz, labradorite, rose quartz, malachite, turquoise, tektite, lapis lazuli, emerald, jad, green aventurine, two sodialites, and today, on my way to little 5 points, a piece of coal called to me. Actually, it fell from somewhere and hit my foot. I looked down and there it was looking up at me LOL.
I also bought a beautiful piece of carnelian, another chrysocolla, and a raw sapphire--the sapphire is for my mom. She has a little collection too that I bought her.
Anyway, I felt called to my stones today and I meditated.
The mookite jasper, a rose quartz, and a clear quartz were at my root chakra--normally rose quartz is for the heart but it was totally okay--the carnelian was big enough to share with both my second and third chakras. Moldavite for the heart chakra with a double ended quartz wand. I had the chrysocolla at my throat for the throat chakra and the Amethyst at my crown for the crown chakra.
When I meditate, nothing usually happens. But I was optimistic. My thoughts came and went including one about the fact that I had forgotten to add a stone to my third eye chakra--the amethyst is good for both the third eye and crown so I moved it in between--as close as I could w/o it falling off LOL.
I have always wanted to experience the "light" that everyone talks about. I have never experienced no matter how hard I tried to visualize it, I just couldn't "see" it. I was just thinking about that when suddenly light was everywhere and there was a presence to my left.
I just kinda laid there for a moment in awe. It got so bright that I felt as if I were emanating the light.
I guess you could say I have a stone collection, but they are more than stones. I am connect to the spiritually and can feel their pain.
When mom was in the hospital, I brought all of my stones with me--they go everywhere with me LOL--and one of them, this large double ended quartz piece fell and broke.
I felt it's pain.
I can't explain the hows, or the why's, or break it down to you scientifically--I just know that I felt and I cradled the broken pieces in my hands. I think I spent an hour with them.
A friend told me later that when it happens, it's because the stones don't belong together anymore--that they have to break up and go their separate ways. I gave the other half to my mom :)
But anyway, that "light" experience was like WOW! I just can't explain it any further.
I love rocks!!
Sounds like a very interesting experience you had.
