I met Meaghan, cancer survivor and creator of Spirit Jump, online when she first began her quest to help lift the spirits of cancer patients. She told me about going through her own treatment – how down she would get after visiting doctors or waking up in the morning feeling depressed, but how special it was to her if she’d come home from a doctor’s visit and have a card or little gift waiting for her. It really lifted her spirits. As a cancer survivor, she wants to help others get through their battle by lifting their spirits.
Her story really got me thinking about how neat it would be to see love pouring into your mailbox from people you didn’t know – people just wanting to give you some hope, some light. I wanted to be one of those people and thus became a “jumper!” I have had the same experience as many others involved with this organization. Both the person giving a gift (jumper) and the person on the receiving end (jumpee), are lifted spiritually.
Kat explained how Spirit Jump works: The organization e-mails out a list of people that need “jumps,” or lifts, and you reply and let them know that you want to send something to a particular person(s). They will then send you the address, and you mail your card or gift directly to the person. It is so easy, and you can participate as much or as little as you like. Even sending a handmade card is great!
Through Self Symmetry, I design and sell necklaces, bracelets, earrings and charms. I use semi precious gemstones, because gemstones come from the earth and hold healing energy. They heal physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually; rebalancing and realigning energy. Each piece that I make is created with specific elements to inspire health and well-being in its wearer. They are one-of-a-kind and arrive with tags that describe their purposes and properties.
Self Symmetry is all about balance within Self. I believe that our inner being should be just as nurtured as our outer being, and I am in favor of anything that helps facilitate that. My intention is to help others realize, and connect to, their inner and outer beauty!
