Roar, In Awe & In Search by The Art Oblivion

Today we are celebrating the release of the first glass bead by The Art Oblivion called Roar! I will be looking at Roar and the two silver barrel shaped beads TAO released last month In Awe and In Search.

Roar together with In Awe and In Search.

Roar is a traditional round shaped glass bead with a light blue base, black spots and a gorgeous clear shimmer!

I am always so inspired by the stories TAO add to the bead and here is the story of Roar!

“The greatest fear in the world is of the opinions of others. And the moment you are unafraid of the crowd you are no longer a sheep, you become a lion. A great roar arises in your heart, the roar of freedom.” – Osho, Courage: The Joy of Living Dangerously

We are being called, do you hear it?
We are being called to dive deep into the Ocean of ourselves, 
into the silence and solitude found leagues below, 
And
outside of the influence of others,
rise with the swelling tides of our truth with a ROAR to the shore!

We are being called
To cultivate compassion and care 
And protect all that is vulnerable 
Loudly and Proudly
With a ROAR!

We are being called 
To RESIST systems that do not have the best interests of humanity in mind
To ROAR for what is just and right, not for some, but for all.

The Art Oblivion offers ROAR as a talisman, invitation, and reminder to find your voice and use it! To offer you ROAR loudly and with your own fierce flair, these times need you!”

In Awe is the third silver bead by TAO! In Awe is a barrel shaped bead decorated with the most gorgeous celestial designs! Here is the story that goes with In Awe:

“And could you keep your heart in wonder at the daily miracles of your life your pain would not seem less wondrous than your joy;

And you would accept the seasons of your heart, even as you have always accepted the seasons that pass over your fields. – Kahlil Gibran “On Pain”

Over the course of our lifetime, we face many trials and tribulations, many cycles, and seasons within our overall existence. 

At this moment in time, during the COVID-19 pandemic, we are facing collective challenges AND creativity that is unifying us – and dividing us – in unprecedented ways. This clarity and conflict toggles minute by minute within ourselves. It can be disorienting. Does it feel impossible to know which way to go?

When a dancer is spinning quickly, they are taught to “spot” one point ahead by keeping it in focus, to avoid getting dizzy and spinning out of control. Let us “spot” on the microcosm of simple everyday miracles, let us  focus on knowing that every feeling is a season, let us keep in mind that every experience is an opportunity to deepen the intimacy and knowing of ourselves – and consequently others. 

“In Awe” is an invitation, reminder, and talisman to be right here, right now; to be with what is uncomfortable as much as with what brings us joy, so we may know ourselves better and develop increased resilience. When things get overwhelming, look up to the sky at the beauty and miracle of light and our ability to perceive it. Let us feel into our connection with the Universe, as all organic matter containing carbon was produced originally in stars. “We are stardust, we are golden” and we are never alone. 

We can combine “In Awe” with “In Search” to keep our feet on the ground while reaching for the stars. To quote Ruth Gordon in Harold and Maude “the earth is my body, my head is in the stars.”

In Search is also barrel shaped and has flowy patterns of earth geography! Here’s In Searches story:

“Not all who wander are lost – J. R. R. Tolkien
I have learned that as long as I hold fast to my beliefs and values – and follow my own moral compass – then the only expectations I need to live up to are my own. – Michelle Obama

Over the course of our lifetime, we face many trials and tribulations, many cycles, and seasons within our overall existence. 

At this moment in time, during the COVID-19 pandemic, we are facing collective challenges AND creativity that is unifying us – and dividing us – in unprecedented ways. This clarity and conflict toggles minute by minute within ourselves. It can be disorienting. Does it feel impossible to know which way to go?

Within tragedy there is opportunity for deep insight not otherwise available to us. It takes deep insight to calibrate our inner compass in order that we may navigate our own way with personal integrity, especially when the way is through uncharted territory. No one can do this for us, and it is essential work if we wish to avoid getting lost in the chaos.

“In Search” is an invitation, reminder, and talisman to be right here, right now; to be with what is uncomfortable as much as with what brings us joy, so we may grow to know ourselves better and develop increased resilience. When things become overwhelming, it is time to breathe in deep, check in with our inner compass and then – only then – set our feet firmly on terra firma, discern our path, and move.

Let us access our connection with the Earth and its diverse topography. Let us absorb the lessons offered by the planet that sustains our existence and that we will go back to once we pass from this world.

Roar tells me to be me! Be happy with who I am! Venus of Willendorf by OHM is a very powerful image to me! With the presence of my guardian angel they will help me to accept who I am and let out my Roar! I combined them with two OHM Love Hurts and the OHM glass Flourish by TAO and OHM Australia’s Reef Dust.

Standing beneath the expanse of a shining starry night looking up makes me feel so connected with the universe! I made a small bangle to highlight the beautiful barrel beads and join them together by OHM’s Stardust and two Dreamscape.

I love to make a full bracelet and I did using the first two TAO silver beads In Process and In Flow! Stacked here with a X-jewellery bracelet.

This bracelet makes me stand proud, I believe in Love and Angels! And combined with the powerfull messages TAO beads send out I can be confident and compassionate! ROARRRR!!

With the OHM beads Agave, Love Hurts, Venetus, Luminous, OMG 1.0 and 2.0 and Persist by TAO.

To finish a little video of TAO box, I am in love with the iridescent artwork!

What a great release! The Art Oblivion beads touch my heart over and over again and help me empower myself with beautiful artwork on my wrist!
