Plotinus Path (Bracelet - 023)

Plotinus Path – the Bracelet:

The bracelet “Plotinus Path” is meant for the seeker, for the person that pursues knowledge, science, hidden truths, understanding and who wants to balance the three aspects of existence, namely: the One, the Form and the Intelligence.  

“Plotinus Path” is suited for individuals that are active in the areas of: science, education, medizing, religion, occult and esoteric sciences, law, inventions, consulting, business, IT and for people that take upon themselves the roles of leadership and guidance.

And for that purpose, “Plotinus Path” has been based on the faculties that the Tiger Eye, the Onyx and the Hematite gemstones bring with them.

What is more, the gemstones’ powers have been further increased through specific types of energy infusion and charms.

Moreover, “Plotinus Path” bracelet has been designed to be elegant and slick, so that you can wear it with official or unofficial attires. 

Finally, “Plotinus Path” bracelet uses the attributes of the colours of: gold, black and bronze; and in terms of numeral powers, the numbers of: 2, 3, 4, 6, 7 and 8.


The "Stoic", together with "Plotinus Path", form the "Philosopher's Bracelets".


Neoplatonism, the last school of Greek philosophy, given its definitive shape in the 3rd century CE by the one great philosophical and religious genius of the school, Plotinus. The ancient philosophers who are generally classified as Neoplatonists called themselves simple “Platonists,” as did the philosophers of the Renaissance and the 17th century whose ideas derive from ancient Neoplatonism.

The core idea of Neoplatonism:

The great third century thinker and 'founder' of Neoplatonism, Plotinus, is responsible for the grand synthesis of progressive Christian and Gnostic ideas with the traditional Platonic philosophy. He answered the challenge of accounting for the emergence of a seemingly inferior and flawed cosmos from the perfect mind of the divinity by declaring outright that all objective existence is but the external self-expression of an inherently contemplative deity known as the One (to hen), or the Good (to kalon). Plotinus compares the expression of the superior godhead with the self-expression of the individual soul, which proceeds from the perfect conception of a Form (eidos), to the always flawed expression of this Form in the manner of a materially derived 'personality' that risks succumbing to the demands of divisive discursivity, and so becomes something less than divine. This diminution of the divine essence in temporality is but a necessary moment of the complete expression of the One.

By elevating the experience of the individual soul to the status of an actualization of a divine Form, Plotinus succeeded, also, in preserving, if not the autonomy, at least the dignity and ontological necessity of personality. The Cosmos, according to Plotinus, is not a created order, planned by a deity on whom we can pass the charge of begetting evil; for the Cosmos is the self-expression of the Soul, which corresponds, roughly, to Philo's logos prophorikos, the logos endiathetos of which is the Intelligence (nous).

Rather, the Cosmos, in Plotinian terms, is to be understood as the concrete result or 'product' of the Soul's experience of its own Mind (nous). Ideally, this concrete expression should serve the Soul as a reference-point for its own self-conscious existence; however, the Soul all too easily falls into the error of valuing the expression over the principle (arkhê), which is the contemplation of the divine Forms. This error gives rise to evil, which is the purely subjective relation of the Soul (now divided) to the manifold and concrete forms of its expressive act. When the Soul, in the form of individual existents, becomes thus preoccupied with its experience, Nature comes into being, and the Cosmos takes on concrete form as the locus of personality.

The Stoic Bracelet
The Stoic (Bracelet - 022)

The Stoic - Bracelet:

“The Stoic” is an energy infused bracelet that is meant to support people that have taken upon themselves the task of leading or/and supporting others.

Such a task is a heavy burden for everyone and great strength is required to succeed in this endeavour.

The individual that is leading or/and supporting others – be it in the business area, the military, education, medicine, politics, sports etc. – experiences a significant burden in both the mind and the body.

Consequently, “the Stoic” bracelet has been created to support you and to protect you throughout the entire process. And for that purpose, “the Stoic” has been based on the faculties that the Tiger Eye and the Hematite gemstones bring with them.

What is more, the gemstones’ powers have been further increased through specific types of energy infusion and charms.

Moreover, “the Stoic” bracelet has been designed to be elegant and slick, so that you can wear it with official or unofficial attires. 

Finally, “the Stoic” bracelet uses the attributes of the colours of: gold and bronze; and in terms of numeral powers, the numbers of: 5, 6, 7 and 8.



Stoicism, History (a quick overview):

Stoicism was founded by Zeno of Citium (modern Cyprus) around 301 BCE, and it takes its name from the Stoa Poikile (painted porch), a public market in Athens when the Stoics met and engaged in philosophical discussions with anyone who was interested. A second major figure of the so-called “early Stoa” was Chrysippus, who is actually credited with elaborating most of the doctrines that are still associated with Stoicism. The early Stoics were of course influenced by previous philosophical schools and thinkers, in particular by Socrates and the Cynics, but also the Academics (followers of Plato) and the Skeptics.

The second period of Stoic history, referred to as the “middle Stoa,” saw the philosophy introduced to Rome. Cicero (not himself a Stoic, but sympathetic to the idea) is one of our major sources for both the early and the middle Stoa, since otherwise we have only fragments of the writings of the Stoics up to that point. The third and last period is referred to as the “late Stoa,” and it took place during Imperial Rome; it included the famous Stoics whose writings have been preserved in sizable parts: Gaius Musonius Rufus, Seneca, Epictetus, and Marcus Aurelius.

Once Christianity became the official Roman religion Stoicism declined, together with a number of other schools of thought (e.g., Epicureanism). The idea, however, survived in a number of historical figures who were influenced by it (even though they were sometimes critical of it), including some of the early Church Fathers, Boethius, Thomas Aquinas, Giordano Bruno, Thomas More, Erasmus, Montaigne, Francis Bacon, Descartes, Montesquieu, and Spinoza. Modern Existentialism and neo-orthodox Protestant theology have also been influenced by Stoicism. The philosophy is currently seeing a rebirth, and has deeply influenced modern practices such as logo-therapy and cognitive behavioral therapy. It also has a number of similarities and overlaps with modern philosophical approaches such as Buddhism and secular humanism.

The "Stoic", together with "Plotinus Path", form the "Philosopher's Bracelets".
