Good Morning all, & thank you for subscribing to our newsletter! ❤️
I am sure you are all fully aware that I am finally sitting in your mailbox on your computer, your tablet, or your cell phone. The plan from the very beginning was to have my first newsletter out by the first of August, but the delay was so unavoidable as well as unimaginable. July brought me a heartbreak that I definitely was not planning on. Like many life experiences that we do not plan for, they tend to knock you sideways if not fully on your head.
This year was a year of celebration, opening up Brighton’s Happy Place as well as preparing for my Railside Retreat Venue. After 11 years of manifesting, the vision I have been holding so dear in my heart has finally come alive. During those 11 years there were many obstacles that I broke through and broke open with. A constant from the very beginning sitting in my work office, was my LuLu looking up at me and loving on me. When I decided to work from home and go back to school, I promised Lu that one day she would return as my partner in purpose sitting beside me once again. This one day came and exactly two months to the day my shoppe pup LuLu passed away. The doors to Happy Place opened May 23rd, 2019, with the most beautiful Keeper of the Realm by my side. Her happy spirit got up with most every person that came in to say hello. She loved everyone and everyone loved her. Last week I had a customer email me a picture of her daughter who took selfies with Lu that neither of us were aware of. Thank you so much Christine, for sharing with me another precious gift of her. Lu was the wee one who laid with me through so many heartbreaks since 2005, and with her passing she took all those heartbreaks with her. She truly was the only one that laid with me through each and every one of them and caught each and every tear that fell. Thank you LuLu for being my girl and being our shoppe girl. You definitely have earned your wings, and will be a welcomed addition to the Remembering Our Angels Wall.
I wish to apologize for the delay in this newsletter, and some changes I have had to make to the August calendar. With the time I took for self care and grieving, things needed to be pushed further into the month or to the next month. I have also added some pretty exciting workshops and retreats going into the fall.
Although I may have appeared to not be present I was digging in to my heart through healing, and through creativity, for what I want to bring to us all for the rest of the year. Not only am I adding a few things this coming month, but there is so much more being planned for coming into the winter months as well. Get ready as we are only getting started!!
Yoga Nidra is literally "sleep yoga" in Hindi. It's a mental exercise that takes place in the mysterious borderland stage between wakefulness and sleep. By maintaining awareness as you relax and your body starts to fall asleep, you can enter a profound state of consciousness - with potentially profound psychological, spiritual and physical benefits.
Yoga Nidra can illicit profound positive results in healing and quality of life. Great for resilience to deal with every day-to-day life as well as increase your energy.
This meditation helps you restore balance no matter what life throws at you.

Each of the 78 cards is a work of art that explores the mysteries of the natural world and the animal kingdom.Many people may not understand or know the difference between Oracle and Tarot cards. I had dinner with some friends this week discussing tarot and oracle cards when I had to giggle as I knew this was coming out in my newsletter. It has been confusing for many, as they wonder about and love the messages they have received in various decks they have seen. Oracle cards are a lot more inviting to people who have just started being introduced to these readings. Many people are also timid around various cards as they don’t understand them, and are not aware there is a difference. Some are afraid as the tarot is more in-depth and the oracle is easier to read.
So what is the difference? You may already know how tarot cards work or at least, what they are. A tarot deck is a deck of 78 cards that fall under categories of major and minor arcana. The cards are then divided into four suits of Wands, Cups, Swords and Pentacles which each suit represents something different an different area of life. They are studied and interpreted by expert readers, primarily to speak to a person’s life story. The tarot is a study to learn how to interpret them as they work together for your reading. Tarot takes a level of practice and mastery as they carry more detail at a depth that most oracles can’t reach.
Oracles on the other hand are more accessible for immediate answers. They are more freewheeling from the tarot. There are any number of cards in an oracle deck and are what the creator wants them to be and as well represent our life story. Oracle cards are easier to learn and can be referred to with guidebooks for information and the person working with the cards will ideally know where the card is leading to.
Please come into the shoppe anytime, as I am always getting new decks in. I have many decks opened for you to be able to look through and pick your own deck with what feels good for you.
Quartz Singing Bowls
Quartz Crystal Singing Bowls also known as Sound Healing Bowls have been around for thousands of years. These quartz crystal singing bowls resonate so strongly with the human body they are used for many types of ceremonies, meditations, circles, therapy and healing. As the bowls are played, the oscillation and resonance of the sound vibration moves through our physical bodies and penetrates into our cells. Our thoughts are energy, and chakras are said to be the idea of energy centres located along the centre channel of the body. Our major chakras, which run from the base of our spine up through the top of our head, and are known by it's colours as well as associated with certain musical notes.
Crown Chakra at the top of our head is known to be Violet in colour and the musical note is B.
Third Eye Chakra between the brow of our eyes is known to be Dark Indigo Blue and the musical note is A.
Throat Chakra is at the base of our throat known to be Light Blue and the musical note is G.
Heart Chakra is in the center of the chest is either the colour green or pink and the musical note is F.
Solar Plexus Chakra is just above our navel known to be the colour Yellow and the musical note is E.
Sacral Chakra located below our navel and the pubic area with the colour of Orange and the musical note being D.
Root Chakra (first or base chakra) located at the base of the spine associated with the colour red and the musical note being C.
There are many benefits to Crystal Singing Bowls whether it is for intention setting or healing. If you are working on a specific area of focus in your life or meditation the practice will carry different benefits. Setting a clear intention in life is the key to unlocking our deepest potential. The chakras in our bodies are often out of balance when we are struggling with behaviours, feelings, health or habits.
