Hey - I'm Anita - the being behind Tiny Little Actions :o)
Let’s face it – jewellery is fun. It’s beautiful and sometimes hypnotically attractive. My guess is that even before you got here today, you probably admired a few other artists’ creations. Heck – I fall down THAT “rabbit hole” rather regularly (Pinterest being my worst sirens’ call).
Jewellery has and always will be the source of meaning. It will continue to help express beauty, status, sentiment.
And because we (humans) love beautiful things, and we can’t exist without meaning, that’s never going to change.
Occasionally, pick a piece that you love and assign it your own Super Powers. The ones YOU, proactively want to embody, experience and impact on your environment.
Let it focus you on the way YOU decide you want to feel.
You’ve felt this before.
It works both ways: every time you wear that ring, you feel like you’re the Queen of the night. You know that other women are looking at it longingly. And you sense the men at the party are… well… thinking whatever it is that men think :o)
All I’m proposing is that you let jewellery be your Totem. You choose it. It chooses you. It empowers and inspires and helps you show up the way you want to show up.
Its message can be discreet. For your eyes only.
The HOW is easy...
…and will come to you naturally.
You just need to lead with intention.
Frankly – whether you choose a Totem of mine, or use one you already have – the power is still there. And I’d love for you to use it to empower YOU, or to nurture you, or inspire you.
1. Just pick an intention you want to focus on right now.
2. Then pick a Totem (in TLT language = a jewellery piece).
4. Finally – practice what you decided a couple of more times mechanically, and soon your mind will almost magically follow on auto-pilot.
I have a tiny Totem I made for myself...
…it’s actually one of my Core Value Totems. A pinkie ring with a Gold Rutilated Quartz (a clear stone, with sun-like gold strands suspended inside it).
To me it’s mesmerising – like the Sun. The Sun (to me) is the ultimate Creator body on our planet. CREATE is one of my top core values I am committed to live by. So every time I want to be present to that value, I put on my CREATE Totem, and I know I now intend to create!
I have another pinkie ring (yeah – big surprise ;o). That one has tiny 2mm fresh water pearl dangling off a simple silver band.
When I intend to be present in a conversation with someone, I wear that. Because its pearl is a symbol of purity, gentleness, openness. And as it dangles when my hands move, I am instantly reminded to come back to the conversation… to listen.
But the effect will be the same. Having a trigger, a reminder, or an anchor for the state of mind we want to embody at this time of your life. Or just in a given situation.
The INTENT can be for a permanent behavior shift, or a temporary one. Whatever you need. But the method remains the same: quick and simple to understand, and such fun to implement!
You have a beautiful, elegant, visible and tactile reminder of what matters to you. And it’s for your mind only :o) No one else has to know your Super-Power!
You – strong woman, you! You get to shape your life with intention and attention.
That's it really...
That’s the reason why I started Tiny Little Actions. To share my method for keeping my promises to myself. To share some simple buffet-style ideas for next steps. Tiny Little Actions you can take right away. No big prep. No heavy lifting. No need to wait for the “stars to align”…
That and a little selfishly, because of how creating the Totems makes me feel.
It turns out this was my “calling” all along.
Jewellery – as it happens – found me!
And now – hopefully it FOUND you :o)
Have a look around the shop. Maybe you’ll like what you see. But even if you don’t, don’t let the method be wasted. Try it with another Totem.
P.S. Never lose your colour & shine…
