Hawaii Volcanoes National Park | AGOOA Blog | Natural Jewelry | Travel and Adventure


  If you’re looking for a way to reinvigorate your soul, travel is the way to do it. There’s no way to describe the awe-inspiring magnificence of the volcanoes at Hawai’i Volcanoes National Park, but we’ll try. Located on the “Big Island,” Hawaii Island, the park features two active volcanoes: Kilauea and Mauna Loa. The park was established in 1916, and lets you see a landscape dotted not only with volcanoes, but also rare flora and fauna. There’s a large hiking area known as Hawaii Volcanoes Wilderness and it spans over 130,000 acres. You can also visit the on-site art gallery, the observatory, and a museum. One of the most-interesting parts of the park is the lava-tube, a channel formed from an underground deposit of molten lava.




Mind and Soul Meditation |AGOOA Blog | Natural Jewelry | Amethyst Gemstone

AGOOA is concerned with helping you heal your body, mind and soul, and we use our natural jewelry gemstones to accomplish this goal. If you’ve never used gemstones to aid in healing, it’s never too late to start. Gemstones are handy in meditation, and if you meditate regularly, you can easily add a gemstone in your routine. The healing benefit you seek will determine what type of gemstone you want to hold or wear, for instance, as a ring or necklace. Every gemstone has a benefit that can help you, and you only need to find what you seek and let the gemstone deliver it.

If you need to ease a troubled mind and get a good night’s sleep, an amethyst is a handy gemstone. The gemstone will help you work through the things running through your mind and be still, which is important in meditation. Hold your gemstone in your hand while you meditate, or wear it in a piece of jewelry, then concentrate on the crystal; staring at it, imagine your awareness is moving into the crystal. From there, let the healing power of the gemstone envelop you.



Letters to a Young Poet | AGOOA Blog | Natural Jewelry | Arts and Culture |

If you create, you may find yourself asking how to improve and be “better” at putting forth art. The same worries plague a poet Franz Xaver Kappus, so he wrote to the popular poet Rainer Maria Rilke. The first letter Kappus was meant to seek advice on his writing, but Rilke declined to comment on the quality of the young poet’s work. Instead, over the course of ten letters, he wrote a treatise on how to live as a creator. In the first letter, he advises Kappus “No one can advise or help you — no one. There is only one thing you should do. Go into yourself. Find out the reason that commands you to write; see whether it has spread its roots into the very depths of your heart.” Rilke goes on throughout the correspondence to address love and the human condition, as well to survive in this world, and create beauty. Often recommended by poets as a must-read, the slim yet substantial volume Letters to a Young Poet will inspire anyone who loves the arts.




Health and Sleep | AGOOA Blog | Natural Jewelry | Mind and Soul Tips

Sleep is one of the body’s natural mechanisms for healing, and it’s one of the most vital things we often neglect. If you don’t have proper sleep habits, then you’re neglecting your health. Here’s how you can improve your sleep tonight.

Abstain from electronics 30 to 60 minutes before bed — the bright lights of the screen -- especially in a dark room -- trick your brain into thinking that you need to be “up.”
Change your body temperature with a warm bath or shower, which will stimulate your body’s sleep hormones.
Place lavender or amethyst under your pillow. Both have been proven to calm the mind and create a soothing feeling for sleep.
Journal, especially if you have something on your mind.

Doing these simple things will go a long way towards making sure you are well-rested.
