In the opening section, I used a quote from one of the Enrichuals© cards created by Suzanne Vadnais Monson’s. I was lucky enough to have found her “enchanted jewelry” card prior to finding the complete deck of cards. (Available for purchase at www.betterdayyoga.com.)
I used to make and sell beaded jewelry, so this particular card spoke to me. Knowing that you can energize your jewelry with intention may seem a bit whoo-whoo for you, but how is that any different than your sending a prayer to the Universe for good intentions to happen? It’s all energy.
Since the opening section referred to a piece of jewelry made with an intention built in, I’m using the meditation on this card to inspire you to create your own intention jewelry. If you create in other ways—such as paints, drawings, music, or any other creative endeavor, put your intention meditation into that creation!
Also, if you’re not the creative type, you could still use the meditation to hold an already completed bracelet, watch, or other object like a crystal stone, river rock, or lucky penny in your hands and empower it with your intention. You can then continue to meditate with your “piece” whenever you are inspired upon its completion. Her card has more suggestions. Again, it’s all energy, and we all have the magic inside! Set it free!

What do you want more of in your life? Create a piece of jewelry to symbolize your desire and focus your intention. As you think about this, let your intuition guide you to the perfect elements to include in your design. It can be anything that appeals to you.
Gather your elements in a place where you will be undisturbed for at least ten minutes. Hold the items you have selected in your hands and close your eyes. Take some deep breaths and relax your body and mind, breathing in fresh possibility and breathing out any garbage you may be carrying around. When you feel ready, visualize what it is you are hoping to accomplish. Take your time and really experience this possibility as if it is real. When you feel a strong “click” of connection with your new reality, imagine you are channeling this powerful energy into your elements.
(Perhaps add the affirmation from Coventry Creations’ prosperity candle—emphasis added: “I am filled with the unlimited abundance of the universe and manifest all that I need!” I say this several times and feel the excitement/energy build.)
Open your eyes and assemble your amulet, asking for intuition to guide your hands as you work to create a piece of personal magic. If making jewelry is new to you, look for some of the great books that show the variety of materials and techniques available, like The Best Little Beading Book.
Try some of these ideas: make a crystal dream catcher, a necklace or bracelet with semi-precious gemstones and charms, or how about a key chain composed of shells and wooden beads? Let your creation remind you of what you intend to attract whenever you see it.
On the reverse side of the card she has various fun quotes—
