Conscious, Ink

Posted by terrepruitt on June 6, 2013

A few months ago I was finding myself with a sense of anxiety.  I was feeling STRESSED.  I was just really out of sorts.  I was worrying about things some of which I could do nothing about.  I was just feeling frantic.  Finally one day I said, “What is up with this anxiety?  Why am I on edge?!”  I was just tired of that on-the-edge feeling.  I stopped and examined what I was allowing to cause me anxiety.  I decided to take a few steps to relieve that anxiety, but I also realized that I was not trusting.  I felt that I had the faith, but I was not allowing myself to TRUST in order to let my faith that things would be ok, actually carry me through.  Now, I know they might sound the same, or you might think it was faith I was lacking and we could argue the semantics and the difference, but in my opinion it was trust that I needed to have.  So I started looking for “Trust” symbols. I was hoping to find a piece of jewelery I could wear or a temporary tattoo.  I found this beautiful bracelet that I found myself wanting, but while I was lacking in trust I was not lacking in intelligence.  Spending $150.00, when having enough money was one of the things I was worried about, would not be smart.  I kept the webpage as a tab on my iPad, and would look at it.  I felt that was a good enough reminder.  Then a friend of mine posted a link to Jennifer Pastiloff’s website on Facebook that led me to Conscious, Ink.

Conscious, Ink is temporary tattoos of sayings or things you might want to remind yourself of or manifest.  And they have “Trust”.  A beautiful slightly green Trust.  Trust on top of each other and inverted so you can read it from either side/angle.  And one long T R U S T.  They also have packages where you can buy 30 days worth of one tattoo.  So you can just keep the tattoo ongoing for 30 days.  I bought all the different versions of “Trust”.  I bought 1 of the long one, 2 of the double one, and a month’s worth of the “fancy” greenish one.

So far I am wearing them on my forearm so that I can actually SEE them and be reminded.  I mean that was really the whole point for me.  But you, of course can do whatever you want.

They have packs of series of tattoos, for example a “Healing Series” which contains different color tattoos stating:

SOURCE Nourishes & Loves ME I AM Light
I TRUST Myself I AM Peace & Joy
I LIVE In Joy & Unity I AM Alive

The “Be Present Series” contains “Just Breathe”, “Be Present”, “Let Go” and three more tattoos all in fancy script.

Dance Exercise, Nia, Nia at the City of San Jose, Nia classes in the South Bay, Nia Teacher, Nia Class, San Jose Nia, Nia San Jose, Nia workout, Nia, ZumbaThey have a large assortment of different types of tattoos all made to help “solidify intentions and affirmations” and help you manifest your own destiny.  For me personally it is perfect.  I need a reminder.  Things around here are cause for questions and since there are no clear answers the only thing I can do is TRUST.  I think with tattoos reminding us of things; Appreciation, Believe, Forgive, Gratitude, Listen, Be Bold, Acknowledge, Expect Miracles, Let GO Let God, I am the source of my abundance, Do it now, Follow Your Bliss, quotes from Rumi, and many more — we can actually make things happen and manifest them.  Conscious, Ink even has a few pregnancy tattoos.

I also have to say that I am a sucker for free gifts.  I love when businesses include free things with an order.  Silly as it may sound it always makes me feel special . . . even though I know I am not the only one that they do that for!  And my free gift was a “Gratitude” tattoo.  A free gift and THAT particular tattoo made me very happy.  There was even a little hand written note from the owner.  AWESOME!  I think all of that is a great job of manifesting a returning customer!

Tattoo anyone?  What would you like to manifest?
