The Story behind the Mantra – ‘I am always whole, even if I do not feel it’

Our beautiful new Crescent Moon necklace brings to life the mantra, ‘I am always whole, even if I do not feel it’.

We felt that we needed to create a mantra to express a feeling that many of us have, after suffering loss or trauma. Coming out of grief, or after divorce, separation or even loss of a job, we can feel empty and broken, like a large part of us is missing.

It can take many years for that feeling to subside, especially if what we have lost felt like it was a part of ourselves.

Over time, we can re-learn that we are still a whole person, with our body, mind, heart and spirit intact. It may not feel like it, but we haven’t lost our very essence, our very self. It is a hard feeling to put into words, but we wanted to create a mantra of comfort to hold onto, even when the overriding emotion is currently one of emptiness and lack.

The moon design really helps to bring this feeling to life – in a way that perhaps words alone cannot do.

The different phases of the moon – a full moon, a crescent moon, a waning or a waxing moon - are caused by the angle from which an observer on Earth sees the moon illuminated by the sun. When the moon is ‘full’, the whole of one side of the moon is fully illuminated, so it shows as a full, round disc. When the moon’s position changes in relation to the sun, as it revolves around the Earth and the Earth revolves around the sun – we can maybe only see a half or a quarter of the moon’s surface being illuminated.

But that doesn’t alter the scientific fact that the moon is always spherical. No matter that we can only see a fraction of its surface, when the sun lights it up. The actual physical round shape of the moon hasn’t changed, just our view of it.

So – just like the moon – we are always whole and complete, even though there are times when we feel like a very large part of us is missing, or there is an emptiness inside us.

Once we had settled on a moon to bring this feeling to life, we created a crescent moon design. We also wanted to add some decoration to the moon’s surface, to make it a more powerful and resonant piece. We chose the Lotus Flower as a way of embellishing the moon, as the Lotus’s powerful symbolism of regeneration and new beginnings adds a further layer of meaning to the design.

Choose the ‘I am always whole’ Moon mantra as a comforting gift for a friend who is feeling low, sad or empty, or is recovering from loss; or choose it as a comfort to yourself, to remind you that you are still whole, no matter how empty or broken you feel right now.
