Is It Time To Bedazzle Your Toolbox?

By Jill:
My Bedazzled Toolbox
Saturday I was on a coaching call with one of my clients and she asked what tools she could use, if needed, for her upcoming trip to visit her family.  I kind of laughed out loud because her Guides showed me a toolbox that had been Bedazzled!  They wanted me to remind her that she already has so many tools and all she needs to do is look in her toolbox, pick one, and then  implement it.  We talked about what she felt would work best for her and she left prepared with her tools should she need them.
That got me thinking not only about my own toolbox but yours too.  I'm guessing that you already have your own and it might even be pretty darn full at this point on your journey.  You have probably invested a lot of time, energy and money to get it so full...  I know I have!
Here's the million dollar question though...How often do you actually use those tools?  Do you even know what is in there?  
Some people believe that doing their inner clearing work is done and I am so happy for them.  Maybe a wee bit jealous too because I'm just not there yet.  In order for me to be at the level of Inner Alignment that I am most comfortable at, and then continue to evolve and expand, I still have stuff that gets in the way that needs to be let go of and healed.  Remember that the word healing means ~  to return to wholeness.
Whether it is old mindsets, habits that no longer serve me, fear of lack and limitation, feeling vulnerable or self-conscious, anxious or depressed or plain old not feeling good enough ~ I know that something is ready to be released and transmuted if it doesn't move through me easily.  That's when I reach into my toolbox and pick something that will help me re-align ASAP.  If stuff begins to cause disharmony and dis-ease in my life then I know I waited  a bit too long and I better go for the power tools!
Thanks to my client's Guides I decided to have some fun with this and Bedazzle my own toolbox and take inventory of what is in there.  I couldn't wait to share it with you! 
I invite you to have some fun with this and create your own symbolic toolbox and of course...Bedazzle it.  You can go out and pick up some fun items to make your toolbox or you can probably find something in your house that will work wonderfully.  You can even draw one and decorate it with colored pencils, crayons or markers if you want.  
Once you have the items to create your toolbox be sure to make a list of all the tools you already have and put them in it ~  You might be surprised to see how many there are.  This is a good exercise to see and acknowledge all the tools you do have, and it also opens up your second chakra and gets the energy flowing.
I'm keeping my symbolic Bedazzled toolbox in my workshop with my "tools" in it and when needed I will set my intention to pick the most helpful tool, close my eyes and pick one up and then USE it.  

Who said "healing" can't be fun?
Here are some tools in my box:
  • Inner Alignment Mandalas
  • Soul Art
  • Radical Forgiveness
  • EFT
  • Sedona Method
  • Energy Work
  • Meditation
  • Affirmative Prayer
  • Journaling

  • Akashic Records
  • Affirmations
  • Read an Inspiring Book

If you accept the invitation to create your own symbolic toolbox and Bedazzle it,  we would love to see pictures of  it and hear some of your favorite tools that you use.  Be sure to leave a comment when you're done and/or post a picture on our FB page at:

  1. Oh... Jill Marie... this is LOVELY to see!! Love all the wonderful rainbow colors and 'sparkle'!

    This is a great idea. (You have some wonder-full tools in your tool box too) :)

    I love the way you look at life and the way you so openly and lovingly share it with others

    Thanks for all that you bring to planet earth sweet Jill Marie.

  2. P.S. This is a great exercise for me to look inside my own toolbox and see what treasures are waiting there for me to draw upon as well. :) Thank you! xoxox (San)di

    1. Thank you San! It was a lot of fun. I hope you are inspired to share some of your favorite tools with all of us :)

  3. I love this bedazzled toolbox. It is so lively and unique.

    1. Thank you :) If you make one for yourself we would love to see it!

  4. Hi Jill Marie,

    What a great GREAT post! You are so right -- I often find myself realizing that I've got a toolkit packed full of tools (and I, too, think of them as tools), that it behooves me to use! Like you, I've taken the time to list them all and the list is impressively long!

    I won't take the time this week to bedazzle my kit like you have (LOVE it, tho!), but I did want to say that I love your idea of writing each tool title on a separate piece of paper and drawing one at random. I'm definitely going to do that! It allows for my more expanded awareness and intuition to get involved as I choose rather than just my rational mind.

    I have a lot of oracle decks -- so many that I created a card for each deck, and I like to draw a card to tell me which deck to use ;-b. It's AMAZING how right-on my card readings are when I do that!

    Thanks again for the great post and the fun idea.

    1. Patti,
      I love the idea of a deck for your decks of cards. So cool! I don't have that many decks yet but when I do I will remember that!

    2. Thank you Patti ;) Yes that is a great idea to list each oracle deck out separately! I'll have to cut out a lot more strips to paint and label :)

  5. I love this idea! I have thought about my toolbox and helping other women build theirs. Creating it into something tangible- something you can use and see on a daily basis it a great solution. I am going to create mine and ask some of my Soul Sisters to do the same.

    1. Jennifer that is very cool :) We would love to see yours once you have it made and if your Soul Sisters are willing to share we would love to see theirs too :) Have fun!
