Spiritual Peace and Strength in Native American Indian Jewelery

Many older martial artists have a good luck charm, a small item that assists in providing them with the inner peace and strength they need to achieve perfection. Many don’t believe that an object has the ability to do such a thing and thus it is written off as a superstition. Perhaps I was one of these people, many, many years ago. I’d been doing martial arts ever since I was young, but had only started to take it seriously as I grew older. The younger me was all about the fight, the power kicks, the knowing that the average Joe had nothing on me. However, with age, I learned to look a little deeper and as my love for martial arts grew, and life got a bit more complicated, I started to look inward and developed a craving for spiritual peace.

On my journey to self acceptance and spiritual peace, I met a martial arts master who had more words of wisdom than I thought existed. He enabled me to look at the deeper side of things and keyed me in on some of the ways he was able to stay strong and achieve spiritual peace. One of the things he mentioned that really struck me was Native American Indian jewelery. I experienced a sort of flashback to the days my grandmother would show me her jewelery collection and speak proudly about all the properties of each piece and I’d pretend to be impressed. As a boy, jewelery was, by no means, something that I was particularly interested in. But that day seeing the piece dangling from this renowned martial arts master’s neck, I knew there had to be some truth in it. He spoke of the spiritual peace that it helped him to obtain in such a captivating way, that it stuck with me for weeks after our encounter.

As though it was written in the stars, I found myself wandering outside an Native American Indian jewelery store and a force seemed to have dragged me inside. I was faced with such a wide selection that it was almost overwhelming. But then I remember what the martial arts master had told me – ‘The One You Choose is the One that Chooses You’ – there was so much truth in that wisdom, which I would’t able to gasp in my entire life.

The Native American Indian jewelery that I now wear around my neck, is the one that had chosen me. It’s the one that spoke to me that day in the store and ever since, I have felt more complete and more in-tune with myself than ever before. I’ve gained a strength that goes above and beyond anything I had previously had and I know that credit has to go to my Native American Indian jewelery for this.

It’s funny how one meeting can change someone for the better and how a superstitious person like me was able to find truth in something that I had previously had no interest in.
