You know you’re totally supported when….

The Universe gives you a nudge when there’s a deal on! Yeah!

I’m like Papa from the movie 100 foot journey “Just because I ask for a discount doesn’t mean I’m poor. It means I’m thrifty.”

I seriously love that quote. Not that I ask for discounts, I just want to spend my money wisely.

I’ve spent the last couple of days going through my supply purchases and itemising everything and calculating how much per bead, per gram, per everything on everything. Seriously taking efficiency to the next level πŸ˜‰

I’ve also been comparing my invoices to my suppliers current prices and some of them have gone wayy up. Something that was previously $6 per strand is now $11, a lot have doubled, some tripled.

Turquoise chips are now $11 for a 50g bag. O.o Guess who’s looking for a new turquoise supplier?!

This makes it hard to have fixed prices on my stuff. Right now I’m selling Orgonite domes, pyramids, pendants, phone buttons and gemstone bracelets. Earrings will be coming out soon, candles and organic body oils/butter is on development mode ~ in fact I have my first batch of Certified Organic oils and butters coming, I hope, next week. Thus the need to calculate everything right down to the grams and mils.

2015 is Our year to spread our wings and soar, as we were always meant to. And that’s exactly what I’m doing. It’s going to be a busy year and now is the time to set the tone, organise myself, put new things in place, andΒ  really solidify the vision I have in my head for the year I desire.

Things happen for a reason. I know I say this all the time, but seriously, I can’t say that enough. It’s one of those hardcore Faith things. If you believe you Believe!

In my case I’ve spent money I thought at the time I shouldn’t be spending, but just found out, by spending that cash I saved quite a bit and I’m set up to work work work for the next few months without needing to re order again.

There’s a plan. We don’t always know it, though be honest, sometimes you have a clue. But if you go with the flow and trust your instincts, you’ll see the plan somewhere down the track, coming together.

Orgonite Workshops

Well… It’s been a long time coming and although we’re now in the colder months in Sydney, I suppose it’s never too late to start. Atleast the odds of resin bubbling up and burning is pretty low. πŸ™‚

I can only teach you what I’ve learned and how I go about my work.

Everyone is different, but the main techniques are similar. I say similar because everyone uses different resins, types of crystals, metals etc.. All these react differently in different ways.

Eg. For fine metals, in a generator I mix up the resin with the catalyst then mix the metals in the resin. In a pendant, I work it like I’m cooking, pinch here there, depends how I feel. Yes, I know, you can’t ‘taste’ it but over time intuitively you’ll know how it feels and what it needs.. This I’ll explain in detail in the workshop.

Orgonites are easy and hard at the same time. But most like everything else, practice goes a long way. With practice you get accustomed to the flow and feel of the ‘pour’ (pour as in pouring the resin = production mode). Most importantly you gain experience, because let’s be honest it’s all good to theorise but when you’re there and things are smoking, burning, not curing, cracking, you name it. You know you’re in for a learning curve you’re not likely to forget soon. They key word there is learning πŸ˜‰

So.. With all that said here’s my steps.. See what you think, if you still want in, let me know…

1) Anchor in. By that I mean, we are beings of above & below. You know… As above, so below? So I anchor. I imagine myself with brilliant gold, white light beams coming from my body going straight in to the earths core and through to the galactic core. I do zoom in and zoom out shots to check my alignment. I check on that regularly.

2) I think about what I’d like to make. Let it marinate for a bit. This allows me time to build the intention, fine tune things, do the research for the crystals.. Etc.. It helps to draw it out because it’s like backwards but upside down. You’ll understand what I mean.

3) On a gorgeous day (could be raining and cold but if you’re feeling up inside, I count that as a gorgeous day.) I repeat step 1 and start prepping my space. Get everything ready and in easy access.

4) Precoat the mold.

5) Layer my orgonite in.
I’m condensing the layers steps into this one. Why? Because in a typical TeamArly generator I have about minimum 5 layers. Each layer depending on the weather, resin & catalyst, can take between 3 minutes to 30 minutes to set. So just in layers time we’re looking at 3 hours.

Note: I know there’s a method of layering all the ingredients in the mold then pouring the resin in on top of it all but I don’t do that so I can’t teach it. Like I said, I can only teach you my way, and hope from there you find a way that works for you. If you’d like to try that way on the day, you can.

6) And from there I wait until it’s cured and comes out of the mold. Which varies, again depending on weather, resin & catalyst.

7) The recoat. Once it’s out of the mold. Depending on how it is, I’ll usually put a second coat of resin over it.

8) Sand, Buff & Polish. If you’re using a glass mold, you only need to sand.

The rough details..

Workshops will be in the Blacktown area.
Will be a minimum of 6 hours.
Participants will be required to bring their own molds and crystals, sands, flowers etc.
Safety gear, resin, catalyst, metal swarf, cleaning materials will be provided and included in the cost.
Crystals can be purchased on the day.
Food – depends on where we end up having the workshop so.. TBA
This workshop is for Generators ONLY, NOT Cloud Busters.
Price TBA
