Celebrating Our Father’s Gifts

 

Although not as popular a gift as the usual suspects, gemstone’s are an exceptional gift for men, with history of use dating back thousands of years, through many cultures and generations.

 

We often associate crystals with females, but many men embraced a variety of jewels as amulets and talismans, during times of war, periods away from home and as a protective symbol worn to ward off ill intentions.

 

This year, why not consider giving your dad or the father of your children, or a great Dad that you know, a unique stone that has a specific meaning, to represent the strength and meaning of your relationship with him?

 

Stones can be crafted into unique jewellery that you can gift Dad as a lifelong reminder of how you feel.

 

Every father has his own unique brand of “Dad”, and the word Father represents many things.

As the first significant role model for both his sons and daughters, a father has the responsibility of showing his children what it means to be a man, and what it means to understand a man.

This creates an imprinted embodiment of the qualities he possesses in the Masculine realm which deeply shape the way his children feel about men, or about becoming a man.  

 

Positive traits in a father include; a fierce protector of his kin, a provider for his family financially or emotionally, a leading guide of the family, a teacher of life and sharer of wisdom, a dedicated supporter, an altruistic or creative problem solver,  a carer, a man-size playmate, or even comedic value if the universal love of “dad jokes” says anything….

 

Considering the many traits your father possesses, ask yourself who is your father to you?

 

What attributes did he carry that shaped your life and the person you are?

 

Did he embody courage? Respect? Strength? Wisdom? Honour? Integrity? Faith? Success? Confidence? Playfulness? Dedication? Unparaleled BBQ or hobby skills?

 

What traits of his do you now see in yourself? Keep your vision of him in mind as you consider which stones may be right for him.

 

Crystals that often resonate with men are those that open the heart chakra (usually green), or earthy tones that help to ground and strengthen the masculine energy.

Diamonds, yellow topaz and malachite are three traditional choices gifted to men for encouraging the creation of wealth and worldly/ business success, and Hematite is excellent at grounding and creating flow for masculine energy.

 

Our Personal Picks:

 

  • Onyx: A powerful protector stone, releasing negativity, healing emotional pain.

 

  • Tiger’s Eye: Luck, Strength, Focus, Clarity, Confidence. Balanced, powerful masculine energy.

 

  • Jasper (Red): Calms aggression. Creates harmony with the opposite gender and family group, grounding, protective.

 

  • Citrine: Wealth Creation, Self-Worth, Business Ideas. Excellent for new ventures.

 

  • Chrysocolla: Opening the heart, communication, expression. Balancing masculine and feminine energies.

 

  • Amazonite: Incredibly soothing and calming. Absorbs EMR and lowers the stress associated with it, so ideal if your father has a lot of screen time. works with computers often as it is said to absorb EM.

These are just a few suggestions! Any stone that is resonant and supportive of his intentions will be well received. We recommend finding a stone that symbolises what your father brings into your life and reminding him of how much this means to you!

If you have not had a strong, loving relationship with your father, or experienced a loss or trauma here, Father’s Day can bring up feelings that are more challenging.

We have included some suggestions below that may be helpful in supporting the healing process with your Father energy.

  • Black Tourmaline: Highly protective and may be beneficial relating to healing of abuse, excess negativity and toxic Father relationships.

 

  • Sunstone: Wonderful for shifting deep sadness and abandonment trauma, and bringing in new confidence and joy.

 

  • Yellow Topaz: An excellent choice for those with absent or unknown fathers. Helps to manifest confidence, strength, aligned will, success and positive masculine energy within your own life. Helps to embrace being a father when no father was present in your life.

 

  • Rose Quartz or Kunzite: Offering soothing and comforting for those who have lost their father, or who grew with a high level of conflict between their father and mother.

 

  • Green Tourmaline: An incredible healer for both children with trauma related to their father, and father’s who are struggling to parent their children. It is said to allow the user to see clearly the underlying patterns and root causes of father issues and shift the cycle into a positive new pattern.

 

Use today to identify and celebrate the role of our dad and all that he has brought into our world, or to bring some peace and healing if .

A father may come in the form of a biological or blood father, a step-father, adopted father, an “in-law”, godfather, uncle or grandfather. Honouring the men who have raised us and helped us grow into the person we have become today by their investment of time, love and energy is the reason we celebrate them on this special day- so make sure you let the men in your life know how much that means to you.

 

Bella Mistico wishes all the dad’s out there a very blessed and relaxed Father’s Day…

August in Crystals..

 

 

 

Traditional Stones for August

August covers the astrological signs of both Leo, until the 22nd and Virgo, for the last 9 days of the month. Both are powerful and dynamic signs, encompassing Fire and Air qualities, creating two different yet equally compelled star signs.

Peridot: A bright to dulled green version of Olivine, this stone is a manifestation of the qualities of self confidence, mental acuity, and protection on the mental level and in the home.

Sardonyx: A layered stone comprising Sard and Onyx, Sard being a member of the Chalcedony family with colouring ranging from orange to red and brown. Sardonyx is also reputed to increase personal integrity and courage, moral reasoning and strengthen our immune system, both internally and externally. Has historically been used to calm night terrors and addictions.

Spinel: This stunning and powerful vibration stone is sometimes called the “Stone of Immortal Beauty”, with a similar tone to rubies and sapphires. Spinel carries a strong energy and resonates with abundance and creative manifestation. It is available in most colours of the rainbow, hence often being mistaken for a variety of other precious gemstones.  Also highly recommended for issues of workaholism and overwork, both indicated by Leo’s pride in their work and inherent stubbornness and Virgo’s steadfastness and over commitment to achieving high standards within their work. A lesson in stepping back and declining overextension of oneself. Valuable as a reminder to let go of stress and anxiety, often used in anxiety and PTSD treatment.

Bella Mistico Concept

 

 

The concept for Bella Mistico came to be from both a love of crystals, and a desire to give a personalised gift to a friend who was going through some massive personal challenges.

I spent a day searching through local stores for the perfect collection of stones to give her.

Being an avid collector of crystals, I had some idea of the metaphysical qualities attributed to different stones, but could not find any hand packaged sets that were designed for the specific purpose I had intended.

In the end, I did my research and put together a set of 7 handpicked stones that were said to be uplifting, healing and powerful helpers in times of change, with a little card detailing their uses.

Anyway, my friend loved it, and what started as a simple idea grew from there.

I spent time sourcing quality suppliers and handpicking stones, often with my 4yo son, which has seen him become a bit of a rock genius with a love of choosing which stones go into particular custom sets.

 

Our stones are chosen to meet a specific purpose, an intention is set, and we send them on their way.

 

People seem to love having a personalised gift arrive in the mail, so much so, that we now have customers in most corners of the world. Creating unique gifts for weddings and events has also been an amazing part of our recent expansion, allowing us to share the love to everyone involved.

For thousands of years humans as a collective have been drawn to gemstones as amulets and talismans, for spiritual expansion and connection, as status symbols or gifts of love and protection.

 

Whether you’re already a devotee to the meanings behind each stone or just love shiny, sparkly stuff that is aesthetically pleasing, Bella Mistico offers something for everyone.

 

Like anything, the intention set in the stone carries meaning, which is why my favourite part of the process is doing just this.

Every set has a special purpose in mind, with lots of positive energy behind it.

 

I love working on this project and trust that you will appreciate not just the awesome rocks, but the awesome vibes that come with them.

We are also constantly striving to provide products and packaging that are ethically sourced with a minimal environmental impact, and welcome new suppliers with the same values to get in touch.

 

Most of all, enjoy the site, and feel free to get in touch with any specific ideas you have in mind. We love customising our gift sets, and will do our utmost to ensure that the receiver opens their package with a massive smile.
