We are in the hight of summer here in the Netherlands and the OHM August release is already around the corner! Release date is August 1st!
To begin we look at the Bead of the Month no. 51 Heart of the Woods! This is a limited edition, only 555 beads are made. What a gorgeous beautiful bead this is, OHM hearts are always stunning!
A tree keeps many deep and silent secrets. It grows slowly over centuries — bending and bracing against the storms — birthing, then losing, its leaves through the changes of the seasons. A tree bears witness to the lifetimes across eons — from the ancient age of elves and unicorns and the first children of men — to the passing of kingdoms, wars, industry, and skyscrapers. A tree is often used without thanks, carries its burdens without complaint, and sacrifices itself to shelter lesser life. Every tree presses its gnarled fingers deep into the dark earth, to hold a steadfast grip and draw nourishment up from the secret depths through its tangled veins. Every tree has a beating heart hidden beneath its roots that throbs with the wordless songs of life eternal.
Two new words added to the collection, I love them!
Words, we use them to communicate, to express, to connect. Words make us feel, words make us think, words make us do…. stuff and things. Words are powerful tools. Use them wisely!
A very ordinary plain glas called AFAIK (As Far As I Know).
As far as I know, there is nothing special about this glass. It is exactly what you see and nothing else. Embrace the darkness and see the light.
Birthday Cake, I am so happy with this glass release, I love lots of colour!
Every year we are one year older. OHM is 11 this year! Who doesn’t love a bit of sugar to celebrate? This Birthday Cake can be served all year long. Celebrate with us! HAPPY BIRTHDAY to OHM!
And another colourfull glass bead called Thanks A Lot!
As light scatters through crystal we must scatter through life embracing gratitude as every great thing passes by. As adults, we know nothing lasts forever, but we can be thankful for this moment at this moment, together. Enjoy the present in all its color, darkness, and sparkle. Embrace the future with its infinite trajectories. Thanks a lot.

“To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.”
― Ralph Waldo Emerson
Our lives are a swirling mixture of feelings and circumstances, of experiences that can reward or punish us depending on our environment. While we all feel this very differently, something that unites all of humanity is that we can thrive only when we ALL flourish.
Each experience that we have offers us an opportunity to understand new ways that support us in flourishing if we are open; open to seeing beyond duality, good and bad, comfortable and uncomfortable, what we want to call in and what we attempt to avoid.
When we can find this place of surrender and persistence, this place of flourishing using all that life throws at us, we begin to show up in the world offering our unique flair, we are able to add our personal flourish. It is in our bodies now, our gestures now, our handwriting now. What are we communicating? When we put ourselves out there we become “permissionaries,” inviting other folks into a safe space to shine and offer their own flourish.
Let FLOURISH be a reminder that there is nowhere to get to before you can begin flourishing, you are already doing it! FLOURISH is here to embellish your unique statement with a touch of the fabulous. Let’s sparkle!
“We do not see things as they are, we see things are we are.”
― Anaïs Nin
Protozoan Vibrations made for OHM Stuff
! Only 555 beads are made!
“Everything we call real is made of things that cannot be regarded as real.” —Niels Bohr
Is everything made of energy? Is energy infinite? Is matter just a form of energy? When physicists probe deeply into matter, they find there is nothing solid. One of the most profound discoveries is everything is made of energy – small particles and a tremendous amount of empty space, but it’s not actually empty. It’s teaming with smaller and smaller energies! So, let the infinite vibrations resonate within your soul for everlasting inner peace and become the ultimate connection with divine everything.
And also for OHM Stuff
Archaic Gyrations! Again limited edition, only 555 beads made!
“Thank God I found the GOOD in goodbye”
What continues to move us forward? Where do the spirals lead us? From hurricanes to galaxies, waves and spiral patterns seem omnipresent in our universe. We see the gyrations everywhere – flowers and leaves, pinecones, the unfurling of needles, in the sky, in the sea, in astronomy. Where did they come from and where are they going? There is no way to know why these spiral patterns are everywhere. What we can do is notice and admire, wonder and question everything.
And to finish here are the August retirements.
Effective August 1st the following items will be retired:
AAX802 HARD PRODUCT
AAX803 SOFT PRODUCT
AAX804 MEETING NOTES
