An explanation of The Crystal Seed of Peace

An Empath Crystal is one that has sustained some natural or man-made damage at some point in its life. In the cases of the Seeds of Peace, many are broken pieces or part of a larger crystal formation.  There is beauty in the broken.  Imperfection itself is perfect.  These crystals still hold the magic and allure of a regular fully intact stone and should not be overlooked, for its magnificence is still apparent.  Seeds of Peace are empathic in their energy as they understand and have harnessed the feelings of distress and change, and can impart this knowledge to their guardian.  Clear crystal quartz holds solidified light and through their fractures and openings these little empaths can release this sacred light back into the world.

 Crystal quartz is able to construct, hold, intensify, focus, transmit and transform energy and matter.  This comprises all – including thought, emotion and information. 

These crystals already hold an energy memory in the core from their birth and life path.  They will impart messages and vibrations to you, as you allow.  As well as this hereditary memory, each crystal has been carefully cleared, charged and programmed with the high vibrational note of PEACE by The Agrarian of Crystal Light.

To have PEACE be it.

PEACE of mind.  PEACE of heart.  PEACE of self.  PEACE of humanity. 

These crystals, should you believe it to be so, and should you allow that belief to take root in your being, may serve as a portal to the remembrance that you yourself are The One.  The healer of your world.  This knowing is Peace.

It is asked that the custodian of a Crystal Seed of Peace will “plant and grow” the essence of PEACE in every area of their life and world.  We ask that you seed it well.  This first release of the Crystal Seeds of Peace are The Agrarian of Crystal Light's gift to you and your gift to give the world.

An example of the tiny crystal empath shards known as The Crystal Seed of Peace by The Agrarian of Crystal Light

The Legend: "From a distant star in the Pleiades I came forth to Earth on a mission of my soul’s evolution.  My form is light and pliable.  I can move, rise and fall in an instant.  I am that of an ethereal cloak.  Almost there, almost not.  Like an invisible spirit. I am not large, yet I am not small.  I glow a little with the stardust in my veins.

My mission is that of the Crystal Farmer.   I am to establish a crop of crystals on the Earth’s plane that will grow to begin the formation of all crystals.  I come with crystal seeds.  Little dust like particles that hold the knowledge of the light and of the Peace..   

I am The Agrarian of Crystal Light."

Stars in our eyes!

the zenith series

We have been quietly whispering our way through this January and the full moon just past was where we gave thanks and set our intentions. And lo!  Now we have popped right back up with stars in our eyes!

There is much afoot for 2016.  Wonderfully rare planetary alignments and solar and lunar vibrations that are bound to vibrate our essences and set the stage for a memorably different year.

We are in fact in awe.  We have been taking this breath with some reverence and are now set in the flow.  We are pretty excited.

Individually and as a one human consciousness we are being urged to connect more than ever with our beautiful planet, Mother Earth.  She herself a magnificent portal opening to the entire universe and the heavens beyond - which are also a connection point – to and from whence we came!  Easy to see why we have those stars reflecting in our view!

So let us share our plans with you for the first part of this year -

To honour the vibrational tug of heaven we will be launching our new jewellery collection towards the end of February.  We cannot wait to share it with you and hope you love it as much as we do.  It will be called The Zenith Series, so stay tuned and we will release details VERY soon!  But just to tease you, think zodiac star constellations on a beautiful brass spinning pendant…..the series will be available through our stockists and through our website, but be forewarned – quantities are limited. 

Gemini - Star constellation from The Zenith Series - available from Anonymous of 379 end February

Gemini - Star constellation from The Zenith Series - available from Anonymous of 379 end February

And for our connection to Mother Earth we are so delighted to have acquired a exceptional assemblage of some wonderful PEACE Crystals from The Agrarian of Crystal Light.  These will be showcased exclusively on our website and will be available also from the end of February.

All The Agrarian of Crystal Light crystals already hold an energy memory in their core from their birth and life path within the crystalline structure of Earth, but then have been carefully cleared, charged and programmed with the high vibrational essence of PEACE.  They are absolutely unique and you can be a custodian of one of these wonderful stones soon. 

Crystal Seeds of PEACE from The Agrarian of Crystal Light - available exclusively from Anonymous of 379 online store end February

But for now, as we approach Christmas 2015 - we would like to thank YOU – at the end of this work year, our first official year with Anonymous of 379 – for your kind support and encouragement.  All of you, our followers, our clients, our retail partners and our suppliers.  Our friends and our families and all those who have offered help and advice along the way.

A very special shoutout to Brody MacLeod  and thank you to Adam Borrello, Paris Fontana as well as Maegan Brown and Sarah Brown for their generous assistance in helping us establish our brand., so grateful to all and we have so enjoyed this amazing year working with everyone!

And lastly, we take a nod to the universe.  Thank you.  We like it here.

Wishing you and yours, blessings and renewal.

The Elements, Universe

"Aurum mostrum non est aurun vulgi"

"Our gold is not the gold of the masses"

The physical goal of the alchemist was to transmute base metals to gold - a symbol of earthly preciousness and perfection.  Yet underlying this journey was the quest of the spiritual goal of rebirth, enlightenment and to free the soul bound to earth, with self-knowledge and remembrance. 

Therefore the ancient alchemist did not just seek the exquisite metal itself but also practiced the science in their quest for another gold - that of esoteric knowledge, regarded as the panacea - the very elixir of life itself.

Gold symbolises the perfection and light of heaven and embodies the powers of the sun trapped in the earth's core, that in turn, seeds all things.  Gold represents the creative glow of divine consciousness within all people linking everyone to the creative mind of the Universe.

 

Image from Pinterest via Wasbella102 Tumblr

 

 “Truth, like gold, is to be obtained not by its growth, but by washing away from it all that is not gold.”

-Leo Tolstoy

The classical symbol of the element of gold is a circumpunct combining with a never ending circle, deemed as the sacred space and the feminine spirit with the central bindu dot, signifying the divine and eternal unification of male and female.

This symbol is represented on our Seed of Gold series Gold pendant.

Gold element pendant from Anonymous of 379 Seed of Gold series

Gold element pendant from Anonymous of 379 Seed of Gold series

We love connecting with the gold of the universe and use this meditation to do so.  We share it with you here.

Sit quietly on a comfortable chair.  Feet placed on the floor and with your back straight, palms faced upward. Begin to breathe consciously and rythmatically but not in a forced way.  Bring the breath through your nose and then passively release, slowly letting the breath settle as it wishes.  Intend that you are in tune with the earth's core.

Imagine your feet are slowly planting themselves into the earth and growing hollow roots that dip down deep into the Mother Earth's crystalline centre. Draw up this beautiful crystalline energy into the roots and through your entire being. 

Visualise your crown chakra opening wide and receiving a beautiful gold pillar of light that streams down from the universe and through your own fields meeting up and merging with the crystalline energy of the earth. 

Spend a few moments soaking up the preciousness of the world below you and the universe around you and the combined energies running through your being.  Let the energies meld into yours and become one with it all.

See yourself shine.

 

With love,

Universe, Inspirational People, Moonly Greetings

Moonly Greetings - The Chi of Borrello

We would love to introduce you to (drum roll!)....... Rachel Borrello.

Rachel is a special somebody.  She has her heart chakra wide open and it is completely full of boundless chi. She is a graphic artist, designer, illustrator, business and shop owner at Chi Borrello, and a Virgo!  Anonymous of 379 is delighted to be pairing up with Chi Borrello for a pop up display stall at the Beaufort Street Festival 2015 this coming Saturday, 14th November.  We know lots about this lovely lady and we thought we would share her with you!

Be sure to come by and say hello to us both at the Beaufort Street Festival this Saturday 14th November, 2015 from 12pm.  We will be situated north of Walcott on Stand 127 in Precinct 4 (close to the Astor Theatre).  We would love to see you!

Be sure to come by and say hello to us both at the Beaufort Street Festival this Saturday 14th November, 2015 from 12pm.  We will be situated north of Walcott on Stand 127 in Precinct 4 (close to the Astor Theatre).  We would love to see you!

 

Were you born drawing your way into life?  Has art always been integral to you or did you want to be something else other than an artist when you grew up?

Indeed I was!  I started out with graphic design after high school, though health issues postponed me to pursue. From here I dabbled in health and wellness where I did aromatherapy massage with make-up artistry on the side.

Our family has a strong history of artistic skills.  My grandfather did hand lettering, cartoons and photography in NYC, whilst my great grandfather did intricate designs (engraving) on church chalices and jewellery.  Mum is also extremely talented with a background of interior design and fine art.  I actually grew up thinking I'd be an architect, but graphic design ended up being the winding path I chose.

 

Artists you admire?

Mark Ryden, Shaun Tan, Daniel Martin Diaz, Yoshimitsu Umekawa, Jacqueline Schlender, Penabranca, Audrey Kawasaki, Simon Beck, and of course - Salvador Dali and M.C. Escher.  There are too many to list!!!!!

 

Your husband is an artist and photographer (Adam Borrello) so you must have quite a creative household going on!  Do you work together on projects? If so, who tells who what to do!?

It's great being able to bounce ideas off each other and understanding our hectic/odd work time schedules being creatives.  Yes, we have worked on projects together a few times.  We've worked hard over the years (almost 12 to be exact) to build a very grounded relationship, which allows us to be direct, patient, and understanding at all times. This is really the ideal partnership!   

(Adam Borrello)

 

When did you birth Chi Borrello?

Chi Borrello started late 2014, which was a reformation of Chi Creative.  Chi Creative originally started in early 2008.  After a complete halt to my career due to unexpected health issues (again) for three years, I decided to give my business a fresh start to pursue my next venture. 

 

 

As well as producing your amazing stationery and art prints you also take on commission and collaborative projects. Tell us about this process.  Do you specialise in any particular area?

The range of work I take on is relatively broad.  Whilst my art prints and stationery keep me busy, I also create custom logo designs/business branding, wedding stationery, chalk art and web design.  Graphic design has such a massive variety of potential jobs - it definitely keeps me on my toes!

 

We heard a whisper that you infuse your work with a certain 'chi'.  Do tell?

I put a lot of good energy into anything I do.  I've learnt a lot in the past about generating an abundance of positivity into life, no matter how challenging some of these chapters you encounter may be.  I create my designs from a fresh, calm and harmonious workspace with the intentions of this to be portrayed to each artwork I produce.

 

What gave you this gorgeous and cheeky chi?

 

I think this is just who I am.  I can be pretty raw and real when I need to be, but I genuinely have a gentle soul with the best intentions.

The "Chi" in Chi Borrello not only comes from the actual meaning of the word, but also comes from my real name 'Rachel'.  Most people call me Rachi or Chi.

 

Where do you pull down your inspiration from?

My mum is my inspiration!  She pours her heart and soul into her art and she's never given up.  I aspire to keep the same train of thought to my own business and keep working hard.

 

What words of wisdom would you give to aspiring entrepeneurs thinking of starting up their own business?

If you can visualise yourself doing what you love, then go for it.  Keep working hard and be extremely patient.  If it means you have to do two or three jobs at once to support your endeavour, then so be it.

 

We know why we do the moon, the stars and the universal songs - you?

The universe is an incredible part of nature, that's undeniable.  There are so many myths and mysteries about the moon reflecting its influence in the night sky, plus it's a huge impact on our daily lives.  Some of which we may not even be aware of today.  I find the connection between us and the moon a fascinating thing.  Energy cycles, balance, emotions, transformation and self-awarenes..

 

Which star would you hitch a ride on?

Canopus - The Cleanser of Waters.

 

Are you a virgo that is incredibly superhuman, organised and pernickety with everything in drawers, or are you a virgo that runs about in chaos and sleeps late because they are very busy being - well, creative!!! ?

BOTH these characteristics define me as a Virgo to a T.  These can be great characteristics but also not so great...I regularly have to re-centre myself by affirming that 'you can only do what you can do,' or 'rest is just as important as work, if not more.'  A lot of the time I get so caught up being pedantic over the small things.

 

Favourite 'other' zodiac sign?

I have always been drawn to the Pisces sign.  They always say opposites attract!

 

We know you left your world recently and traveled the world. Favourite place? 

My favourite place...That's a tricky one.  So far I'd have to say Pai/Chiang Mai - Thailand.  The air is clear whilst the people are pleasant and kind.

 

where would you live if it wasn't perth?

Barcelona or Hong Kong.  Though I've always had a visual fantasy about living in Arizona!

 

What have you done in past lives?

I feel I may have worked in psychology or working in some way of helping people.

 

 

And in this life, Rachel Borrello is making her mark on the local art scene!  Be sure to check her out!

 

The Elements, Adorn Thyself!, Universe

It is elemental!

Fire - the first element born of creation

Ah!  the first element.

"FIRE;  HIS LIGHTNING - I want to be that restless."  {Rumi}

For a moment, let us look at Fire through the mind's eye.

He (yes, he holds the masculine energy), speaks to us of action.  He is unpredictable, brilliant, strong, warm, refined and transformational. He will crackle expansive thought and he can glimmer with mischevious joy!

The ancient Alchemists believe that Fire incubates the metals in the womb of the earth.  Deep inside her belly she burns and births with universal harmony. Fire will hold this same harmony alight in your heart, warming you with creative enthusiasm and bringing you to new life.  There is a strength in his flames that will hold you in awe of the pure energy in his exciting and passionate movement.  When you hold a 'fire in your belly' you will move forward with the knowing that no other knows - projecting your ideas out into the aether with confidence and vigour!  If your inner fire however is weakening then watch that you are not over cluttering your life and throwing too much 'stuff' on top of yourself.  If you feel yourself smouldering then consciously make space in the ashes to encourage your spark once more.

Fire is ruled by who else than the Sun!  So beautiful is he not? The magnificent. The wondrous. The bright.  Spectacular. The largest star.  The God. The magic. 

Archangel Michael is the Angel of the Sun. He brings light, revelation and inspiration.  He is the guardian of higher places and is said to give great comfort for those who are destined to play a role in bringing forth the new Age of Aquarius - the Sixth Sun.

Fire is also aligned to the planet Venus - "I am your Venus, I am your fire, at your desire..." {Bananarama}.  The mysterious Venus is home to thousands of active volcanoes and the hottest known world.  

The element of Fire is linked in astrological terms to the signs of Aries, Leo and Sagittarius. These beautiful signs light up with passion when creatively inspired.  They can glimmer gently and then suddenly flare up in an instant and throw their fiery arms about, drawing you into their intense and warm hearts!  These signs live large. You can trust their powerful intuition, they just know what to do, where to go. They can travel wide and far, high and wide - they are the divine spark!

If you wish to bring the wonders of the element Fire and a little of the divine spark into your own life then position yourself alongside his flaming rememberance with our Fire Element symbol from the Seed of Gold series.  In stores and online.

Going for Gold!

Last year we released through a very select couple of our retailers a pilot collection of brass pendants.  Based on the obscure, fascinating and ancient properties of the universal elements and Alchemical practices we named this series The Seed of Gold.

We were so excited to receive a wonderful reaction to this range and are now proud to announce we are re-releasing Seed of Gold to our wider community.  They will be in stores and online very soon!! But, be quick - this also will be a limited release run.  

All that there is pendant from The Seed of Gold series 

All that there is pendant from The Seed of Gold series 

The elements depicted on the pendants are the foundation behind the theories of Alchemy; a mystical practice echoing layers of enthralling magical tales and legends combined with exacting mathematical formulas.

Exploring the mysteries of creation, the ancient alchemists worked first on an intellectual or solar consciousness level to transmute the physical base metals into pure gold. Then they delved deeper into their intuitive or lunar consciousness to create The Elixir - which holds the power to 'perfect' all it touches.  This spiritual quest was a passage seeking an enlightened state.  That of perfection - All That There Is.

Each of the brass pendants come on a sterling silver box link chain. As with our LaLune series the pendants are bought singly but can be worn as multiples on the same chain. They are all supplied with a beautiful story card outlining the essence of the element.  

Visit our stockist page or our online store for more information.  Sale enquiries can be made through any of our valued retail stockists.  

We hope you love them as much as we do!

 



Universe

aaah, the moon

Much has been written on the wondrous magical planet that looms like liquid iridescent radiance in our night sky.  Poetry, mystery, her dusted luminance seeping into our sleeping moments.  She lights our hearts, moves our waterways, bathes our hearts with the promise of magic and lifts our vibrational energy high into the heavens.

She is an old lady.  Not that you would normally mention a woman's age, but this one has seen it all, again and again.  Over 4 billion years of seeing in fact, and she only shows one side of her face to Earth. Aaah, such mystery. She moves us. She pulls our tides, they rise and fall on her say so.  She grows us.  It is on her illumination that we seed ourselves, plant ourselves deep, sprout, grow and reap our own intentions - and that of our sustenance.  She nutures us, brings our emotions to fore, strokes our soul light and rocks us to sleep.

She will whisper to you. She will cleanse you. She will inspire the artist and she will bring music to the musician and ink to the paper of the writer. She will romance the stone. She is at the heart of All That There Is and at the base of All That There Ever Will Be. She sits like a crown in the heavens and she is me and she is you. We are synchronised and in her care as we exist in her cosmic surroundings.

As the dark of the moon slowly lifts her shadowed veil in the coming days, use your own inner illumination and respond purely to your intuition to learn about yourself. Be ready for your own reincarnation, assemble your thoughts and hold on tight.  For this is the beginning of your new journey!

The universe is truly a magical thing is it not?

Adorn Thyself!

Why adorn?

At Anonymous of 379 we've always believed that adorning our bodies and wearing jewellery comes forward from an inherent primal instinct.  In many instances we painted ourselves with ochre and earth, put bones in our noses, wore necklaces of teeth, ran twigs and flowers in our hair even long before we put on the bearskin to keep us warm.  We clothed for practical reasons, to protect a part of the body, to keep warm - but the decoration?  It served no real purpose to our survival to wear earrings, so why now have we evolved to have ten pairs of earrings on the dresser!?

Kayan Lahwi woman (Myanmar) CC Image via Wikipedia

Kayan Lahwi woman (Myanmar) CC Image via Wikipedia

Our human-ness comes with a physicality.  An embodiment that needs nurturing and feeding on a basic level.  But internally our spirits sing with creativity that dances deep with the unspoken language of the soul.  

We painted ourselves to camouflage ourself on a hunt, or to identify ourselves as part of a tribe. Or maybe to hide our bareness compared with the other creatures blessed with the glory of nature, we used it as a creative adaptation to attract a mate?  The peacock flutters a tail feather, we smeared on ochre and red mud and elongated our ear lobes.

Over the ages the adornment has and will continue to stand for many things.  To make us attractive, to make us fearsome, to connect to our surroundings, to identify us, to put forward our status, our sexuality, to enhance us and to remind us of memories.  Grandmother's ring.  Mum's necklace. His ring.

It is also part of an unconscious ritual of how we connect to ourselves and to each other.  How we connect to the earth, using her gifts to honour our physical connection.  Gaia supplies us with an abundance of beautiful metals, stones and her gems and crystals.  The divine connection between the Universal elements, her forces and ourselves reflects in the jewellery we wear.  

So connect with the deep instinctual primal forces of your DNA, buy pieces that stir your inner voice, remind you of your universal connection and ones that make you touch your core, that reflect your personality and echo the voice of your soul.

It is our belief these pieces of preciousness are far more than the clothes you wear to keep you covered and warm.  These pieces hold a kinetic energy - of the earth they came from and the workmanship that crafted them and of the vibrational imprint of the wearer.  They hold it and they offer it back to you.

So go on - enjoy! Adorn thyself!

Moon-ly greetings - Emte Boutique

We have one of the most energetic rocket retailers in Emma Owens from Emte Boutique to introduce to you!

Don't let your cupboards be Emte...

Don't let your cupboards be Emte...

Emma, we have to ask what is EMTE? The initials stand for?  The Em-te drawer in my closet?

Oh, I love this question!  Mainly because everyones imaginations run wild with the possibilites of what the Emte could mean.  I may just have to steal your idea though! - Hahaha, mine is much plainer.  One night I was trying to think of a name and I was just putting people I knew, their names with mine.  Em - Emma (me) and one of my closest friends ever, Tess.  She was lucky, Te is what I needed and there you go - a cute little reminder of a friend that has always stood by my side. xxxx

 

How long have you been a fabulous retailer in Burleigh Heads?  What inspired you to open the shop?

I have been on James Street in Burleigh for almost 6 years from the age of 25, it's crazy how life changes so much but I'm still doing the same thing I was 6 years ago and I love it!!!  I had so many wonderful customers tell me I should be doing it for myself, not for someone else, so I did - and here I am still doing it.

Emte Boutique

Emte Boutique

You are so full of life and effervescence, we see it bubble over into your emails and social media - so you are?  A Leo???  Maybe a Capricorn?  Do tell.

I am a Virgo, the most organised chaotic human being you will ever stumble across.  From as young as I can remember I've been good at one thing - TALKING!  In pre-school the only awards I would get were for being Miss Social Butterfly and my whole life I have always rushed to say things to the point where my Dad has one look for me now - and that look means (he has been saying this for 30 years) "Slow down and think before you start talking." My brain and mouth go 1000 miles an hour, hahaha! I love people and everyone has a story, I'm so intrigued by them, I must know everything!

 

Bestest label you have ever bought for Emte?

The best label that Emte has is Samantha Wills.  That lady knows humility and kindness and also how to design and produce a product like no other.  She also has such an amazing customer base that I have been lucky enough to sell products to - and to have become friends with.

 

Best piece of jewellery you've ever owned personally (other than ours!)

Oh I love my moons.  I'm that person who has to lock themselves inside on a full moon, the girl that sits on the beach and cries at eclipses to cleanse my life and renew my spirit - and who religiously recharges my 400 crystal strong collection in the moon light. Favourite piece of jewellery was the question.......right...hahaha....ummmm...I just can't even answer that.  I have a custom made jewellery chest the size of a chest of drawers and two others. You don't even want to know the cost of it all.....

 

Restaurant?

Republica in St. Kilda, Melbourne.  I mean, I dream of their coleslaw and I usually wouldn't even try it if it's on a menu.

 

Cake?

I don't eat cake, haha never have like it.  I eat the icing and then share the insides.... if I had to choose it's defs Red Velvet though.

 

Favourite flower?

Sunflowers.  I sleep with them next to my bed when I can.  They are so happy.

 

Poet?

Richard Matthews.

 

Artist?

Sarah McColgan.  She has this exclusive horse piece on The Cool Hunter, I would actually give up my first new born for...

Horse | Sarah McColgan via The Cool Hunter

Horse | Sarah McColgan via The Cool Hunter

 

What are you wearing right this minute?  Describe and label.

Oh my God!  You cannot ask a fashion boutique owner this question, hahahaha!  Well because it's my day in the office and I'm hiding behind my laptop, I have Black Milk tights on, a giant vintage dark blue knit and socks.  My Moon pendant (coupled moon, and some rings from Midsummer Star).

 

Your rocket is heading - where?

Where ever my family is :)

 

Past life? Who were you?

I was a Gypsy Girl who sold clothes and jewellery in the market place (or is that me now? I'm not too sure....)

 

Next life? Who will you be?

Dear God...hopefully a better version of myself xx

 

Sun or Moon?

Sun.  I get very upset if I don't get my vitamins from the Sun regularly.  I makes me so so happy.  It hurts when it's winter.

 

Regardless of your answer above :) what is your favourite Moon Phase Pendant and why?

The Coupled Moon pendant, it has so much meaning, the whole re-energising and re-charging and re-sowing and renewing ... people avoid it because it's basically a circle and go for the trendier crescent moon pieces, but if you knew the moon, you would obsess over this one.

 

Why do you live in Queensland?  (We only ask because we think you should live in Perth!)

If I lived in Perth I wouldn't be able to stock one of my fav brands (YOU GUYS). I live here because my parents moved here to birth me and they kinda need me here to be the funny one at family dinners.  It's also the most beautiful place ever.  We are so close to so many things, it only takes 20 minutes in any direction and you could be in another world.

 

Tell us about Byron Bay and your new store - it sounds so exciting!

I love Byron Bay, this is one of the places I've adored for a very long time.  I had my 30th birthday there and my hens party and I just go there when ever I need some peace.  The shop was so meant to be and my partner Cory was so encouraging that I couldn't even resist.  His and my family worked around the clock to get it open and it was just so much fun.  We all grew together and it's just perfect.  I had a full time staff member I asked to come on board from day dot and it's just been a dream.

 

You can visit the lovely Emma and her team at:
