Ascending Butterfly began in 2009 with daily breathing affirmational meditations, for the first year we focused daily and exclusively on mind, body and soul wellness as a path to overall wellbeing. If our spirits are out of balance, invariably our bodies will be too.

I have had the pleasure of partnering with a wide variety of intention jewelry designers and sharing their amazing designs with you. I'm a fan of bold, statement jewelry, and when that jewelry is also intention based for me it's a super powerful combination that helps me feel more attuned to myself and the energy I'm putting forward.

I have had penpals my whole life, we all share a love of stationery and the fine art of putting our thoughts to paper. It is one of my penpals who introduced me to prayer boxes, a tradition she shared with her mother, that I was introduced to when she gifted me one for a birthday many years ago. Years later I discovered the power of using pyramids to make new moon wishes or new years goals and putting the paper inside of them. (I have a red pyramid I like to use to make New Years Goals for myself, on my birthday, NOT on New Years Eve and I also use it to add New Moon wishes throughout the year) it resides in my Meditation area.

After years of using my prayer box and my Pyramid, I hit on a stroke of brilliance, it's just so smart, I only wish I had invented this myself, a core cuff bracelet that allows you to carry intentions with you everyday in the form of super stylishly designed jewelry with a hidden secret inside!

How it works:

I included the YouTube Video on the Cuff because I thought it would be helpful for you to see it in action, it's a super fast, super simple way to align yourself to your intentions and be more vibrationally aligned to your purpose!

How I styled it: Jewelry: I am wearing the BuDhaGirl Core Cuff Bracelet in the color 'Jade', Handbag: Elliott Lucca Blue Cordoba Flap Front Shoulder Bag (in 'Teal' Exotic),  Jeans: Coldwater Creek Denim Bootcut Trouser Jeans

My Take:

I am living in this bracelet, I've used it daily to add pizazz to more casual outfits as well as with dressier outfits, and it has turned heads each and every single time I've worn it, I am absolutely obsessed with my BuDhaGirl Core Cuff Bracelet and with BuDhaGirl and I want to get ALL the extra intention reminders for my bracelet now! I have my eye on the 'Healing Buddha' reminder next!

The artwork on the reminders that go inside the cuff are simply beautiful, and also if you use a very thin paper you can also write your own intention and add it to it, I love that the reminders also have Mantras that you can say as you slip them inside the cuff out loud and then do it again silently during the day anytime you want.

I couldn't imagine a more perfect collaboration, Ascending Butterfly and BuDhaGirl are definitely a match made in intentional living and spirituality heaven!

@Pablo Lomeli 2011

I have been doing yoga for the past 20 years and it has been my saving grace. Sometimes my practice has been strong, flexible and powerful, while other times it has been reflective, slow and gentle. The one constant is that yoga always gives me what I need at that moment. When you are on a spiritual journey life gives you lessons, obstacles, joy and many choices. Our current state of mind determines how we choose to handle each situation which arises.

If the mind controls the body, then the mind needs to be calm, clear and balanced, which is much easier said than done. However a great meditation will help the mind shift to a state of nothingness, and some days this works better than others. One of the main reasons I find yoga vital in my life is because I do not have time to think. Rather the act focuses on the breath and the expansion and after an hour and a half my perspective changes. Everything becomes more manageable and clear. My personal connection with the divine is reinstated and my connection with myself is more complete.

Yoga has taught me that some of the greatest things in life take multiple years to learn. Poses can be perfected but in time that too will change. Each day on my yoga mat is different because each day I show up I am different.

"Yoga has taught me to be kinder with myself and accept where I am right now in this moment." ~Heather Askinosie

Yoga is a healer, a teacher and one of the greatest gifts one can offer to yourself. After every class I thank my body for being healthy and allowing me to do the YOGA.
