The Magic of Word T-shirts

Words. I am a writer. See previous posts about my recent script projects. I am now preparing a new script, to be presented half way through this year. Writing brings me joy. So how fitting to come back to making designs based in words and language for Botanic Mystic. I put so much thought into each design and what it means. Each word has so many possible meanings to convey. Each word is mystic. I remember reading in the book The Four Agreements, by Don Miguel Ruiz, that words are a kind of magic. We cast a type of spell with the words we use. They hold power. We create good or bad in the world with our words. Both those we speak to ourselves and those we speak to others. So what words do we choose to use, and how do we choose to use them?

One thing which has helped me immensely over the last couple of years as I have been learning how to heal the impacts of CPTSD and to manage my ADHD traits, has been to focus my brain with the use of words which are empowering and which take my focus deliberately to the direction which I want in life. Some people call this using affirmations. Some people call it using a mantra. Particularly ‘I AM’ statements can be very helpful, using a statement you resonate with which you can repeat to reprogram your mind. This is one of mine: I am powerful, empowered, loving, healed- a goddess.

So here are some of my new word designs for the New Year. The fun I have had writing each item description in my shop. My Etsy coach says not to ramble with item descriptions, but I like writing something which might uplift someone else. I remember particularly when I was so desperate and unhealed, and even now sometimes, coming across a tiny sentence which is in anyway empowering can be at times like a lifeline. Even for an item description in an online shop. So I include the descriptions I crafted for my Etsy shop here. In fact this is the inspiration for writing this post. Apologies for how daggy they are. And excuse the mock ups! There is no way I could photograph each item itself. But my mock ups are getting better if I do say so myself! Click on image to go to the listing.
