yet :: May Talisman of the Month
The Talisman of the Month is a different mantra chosen each month that is then hand stamped into one of my pocket talismans. It comes with a card printed with a few words about the mantra and at least one way to use it as a practice in your daily life, along with a card that explains how to use pocket talismans.
May's mantra is: yet.
During a conversation with a friend a few weeks ago, she said to me, "You just don't know the answer...yet." And we talked about how "yet" could be it's own practice. And then she said we needed it on a pocket talisman. And after stamping it and carrying it around in my pocket for a few weeks, I knew you might need it, too.
This mantra is for the days when you need to remember that you aren't at the end of the story, that you are learning (and even unlearning) every day and that is okay, that there is more to your life than one slice in time.
"Yet" reminds you:
Today was hard, yet the birds will still sing up the sun tomorrow.
I don't know how this will unfold, yet I can show up with my heart open anyway.
You can just pause and breathe right here because you don't have to know the next step...yet.
We can be side by side, looking to the future, even though it's not in focus...yet.
This practice can ground you, shine a light, and even reach out a hand as you walk through The And Spaces in your life.

How to Use a Pocket Talisman
The Soul Mantra pocket talismans are reminders for you to carry with you on your journey. You can put one in your pocket like a stone and each time you feel it take a deep breath and remember you are not alone. You can hold it in your hand and rub your fingers along the words and let yourself lean into trust. You might also want to place a talisman on your altar or next to your bed or even in your cubicle at work. It can remind you to just be right here and know that you are enough.
The intention behind the Talisman of the Month is to give you a tangible reminders to see, hold, and use to help you create space to practice mindfulness and self-care.
This pewter talisman has been hand stamped with the words "keep showing up." It is very organic in appearance, about 1.25 inches across, and comes packaged in a cloth bag for your pocket or to give as a gift. A beautiful instruction card is also included.
Note: Each of these talismans are made by hand and each letter is hand stamped, so the letter placement can vary. Your talisman will be made with love just for you.
