"My grandpa left me some money in his will, and I used the money to buy the tattoo. The clock is set to the time of his birth!"

Baklayan, Marissa
1.0 photographic print(s)
"I had wanted it since my brother passed years before. My brother passed when I was 13 and my family was torn apart so I got this tattoo on my 18th birthday in memory of him. Wolves were his favorite animal and I thought it would be a good way to remember him by. I purposefully didn't put any initials or anything because the tattoo is for me, not for other people. I know what it means and that's what matters."

P01_2018_004_07: Good luck crystal
Baklayan, Marissa
1.0 photographic print(s)
I wear this amethyst that I wrapped for good luck. Amethyst has crystal energy known for healing as well as protection. I put the wrapped crystal on a hemp string to make sure that the piece was completely natural. I do not wear the crystal every day, only when I feel a need for its protection and power, because I do not want to exhaust the crystal and it needs to charge by my window sill (by sun, moon, and occasional charging practices that I do at home). Charging crystals is a ritual that consists of cleaning them in natural water (I get my water from the river sometimes) or passing them over incense if they are not water safe, meditating with the crystal and connecting with it, and what I also do is symbolically arrange my crystals in front of me to emulate my emotions of that moment physically. The practice may not be completely valid, but it makes me feel at peace within myself in times of stress.
