The Rainwater Designs Creative Process
The Why ...
Rainwater Designs began with the desire to create wholeness through our love of crystals, minerals, and stones and our study of metaphysics. Each day, we try to synthesize our years of study and practice in the metaphysical and healing arts to create pieces that support your growth, healing, and progress.
Cutting edge science has revealed the nature of the Universe: everything --- you, your thoughts and emotions, the ground you stand on, the air you breathe, the food and water you consume, the home you live in, the stars and other planetary bodies, and all the seemingly empty space in between --- is energy, vibrating at various frequencies. When your emotional and/or spiritual body is out of balance, you may feel out of it or "off," thus leaving yourself open to imbalances or dis-ease.
We believe that all dis-ease can be mitigated. We believe that our bodies are meant to be self-healing. Our goal is to uplift you in this process by creating products that amplify your natural strengths and tendencies, while diminishing those aspects that hold you back. Your goal will be to get back "in the flow" with the Universe.
The How ...
If you will open yourself to the energy of these crystals and stones, they may be able to assist you in your quest for wellness. Each stone has its own vibration and its own set of properties that have, through the ages, been used for specific issues. For example, one stone may be useful in helping to clear and strengthen the circulatory system, while another stone may help get rid of headaches or another may provide clear vision during meditation. The crystals and stones are as varied as the situations we find ourselves in, thus the different stones are used for various Sun Signs or for individual situations when we do custom products.
To "create with intent" means to go beyond simply making a product that is pretty or useful. It means that specific thought and energy have been applied in its creation. The many elements, seen and unseen have been considered and chosen specifically. Some of the elements on the visual plane could be color, size, and shape, while some of the unseen elements might be the chemical makeup of the gemstone, its healing properties, its vibration or energy, and the combination of stones in general.
As you decide which product you want, even now begin to open your mind and heart and spirit to the crystals, to the colors, to the materials. See them surrounding you in their circles of power.
The What ...
From our first products, the 12 Astrological Sun Sign Bracelets, to the smallest fob, all of our jewelry and other products have been designed exclusively and created by us. The crystals and other semiprecious gemstones have been ritually cleansed and charged with the intent to create wholeness and abundance for you. They are all natural, not imitations. Other materials, such as glass, wood, bone, and acrylic, are clearly labeled.
We use only lead-safe metal findings and clasps; however, these products are absolutely not intended for use by children under the age of 15.
Remember, since most of our products are created with natural stones and crystals, using an intuitive process, each piece is totally unique. These are actual gemstones with natural inclusions and variations. Many of them are hand cut and may vary in size, shape, and appearance. Due to the uniquely creative, intuitive process, each bracelet is truly a one-of-a-kind creation. The pictures are illustrative.
