Michael Christofas Jewelry

 

The Biography of a Symbol Maker

Michael was born in Tanzania to Greek Cypriot parents, who were farmers there.  He still holds a deep love for the cultivation of plants as can be seen in the paradisiacal gardens at his homes in central Mexico and central Texas. He speaks English, Spanish and Greek, having an ease with languages, actually speaking Swahili to his family for the first years of his life, besides learning to speak French and Afrikaans at school and Chi Bemba at home on their farm in Zambia.  His family moved to the US when he was 15 and though the transition was difficult, he has always felt an affinity for America, as though an American in past lives. Today he spends part of the year in San Miguel and the other part near Austin, Texas dedicating himself to his spiritual practice and his art, the designing and creation of unique and beautiful silver jewelry with precious stones and gold accents.

His spiritual awareness and love of stones and jewelry began at the age of 21 when he met Allain Ramsay, a psychic and antique jewelry dealer.   Allain had had a ¨near-death¨ experience at the age of 33, crossing over to the ¨other side¨, and though he gradually lost his memory of this experience as the consensual realty of the world reaffirmed itself in his awareness, he regained it when he left an abusive relationship, moved to Cincinnati, and finally dared to listen to the inner-voice he heard in his mind.  This helped Allain realize the ramifications of what he came to remember and understand.  Their meeting produced a profound change in Michael, as though it was the first time that he had encountered The Truth about Life, the Spirit, ¨God¨ and our purpose here.  Michaels unwavering dedication to Truth and its Wisdom, later lead him ¨The Course in Miracles¨ after reading Gary Reynard’s book ¨The Disappearance of the Universe¨ leading to an even more profound encounter with ¨The Holy Spirit¨ as the inner voice is described and defined…. As the Voice for God, with its purpose being to re-awaken Souls to their Eternal Self and the ¨Actuality¨ of which Allain had spoken.

This development then led Michael to find the way to imbue his creations with purpose, as ¨Talismans¨.  He programs his creations through prayer, affirmation and several other means,  to this same ultimate purpose; the Healing and Fulfillment of the Human Spirit.  Each piece is dedicated to the deepest desires of his customers and clients, assisting them in their consistent application and vigilance in producing their most genuine hopes and dreams, making these co-created pieces allies, and heirlooms that will be eternally powerful and useful in humanities assertion of a non-duality that overcomes man’s separation from Source. 

Michael has found a happy and profound purpose for his art and his quest in life.
