Meaningful Mala Bracelets for Moms

Motherhood is one of the greatest gifts in the world.  Most moms will tell you it’s one of the most fulfilling jobs, but also among the most difficult.  It’s a journey I’m about to embark upon myself – I recently found out that I’m pregnant with a baby girl, due this September!  (Here's the two of us on the beach <3 ) With all the focus on motherhood and babies, I began to think about the challenges and joys that the journey of motherhood brings – already experiencing some of the intense joy and sacrifice as I carry my baby...

Explaining the 7 Chakras

I recently took a chakra workshop at my fabulous yoga studio (props pictured above), and it made me realize: the word “chakra” seems to be everywhere lately.  Maybe you’ve been hearing about chakra balancing, or maybe you’ve noticed the stylish chakra tank worn by the dancing warrior on the mat next to you (true story – I need this yoga top!). Yes, the 7 chakra symbols look colorful and exotic.  But do you know what they signify? If not, that’s totally ok! That’s what this blog post is for. I’ve been practicing yoga for almost ten years now, and began to delve deeper into...

SoulShine's symbol: the North Star

My husband and I just celebrated our first anniversary - time flies! He gave me a gorgeous diamond North Star pendant, which is my favorite symbol. It's also the inspiration behind SoulShine's logo! Here's why... The North Star has guided travelers for thousands of years, a constant bright source on their journeys. Now that we have Google Maps to guide us, the North Star guides us in different ways: through its symbolism, it helps us navigate through life. We all have our "true north" - the best and truest version of ourselves.  The North Star reminds us to always strive to...
