Thoughts, staff picks, and lots of fun.

Reiki was a huge hit with the seniors

David, Carson and Patty visited the residents at Madison Towers to demonstrate Reiki healing. Can we say OMG? They loved it, felt it and wanted more. We had about 23 in attendance. After a short talk just about everyone got 5 minutes of Reiki. We look forward to our next visit. Thanks Sharon Mello for inviting us.Sent from my iPhone

This is how I feel Today

No, it's not my birthday. Nope, I didn't win the lottery. Today is the day I'm teaching senior citizens about Reiki. David and I are heading over to Madison Towers to give a special presentation at their Activities Center.



Sharon Mello called me and said there was interest in alternative healing among her "seniors" and asked if I'd come out and talk to them about Reiki. If all goes well I'm going to offer attunements. Then they can organize a Reiki share and give each other regular Reiki treatments. I'd love to be a fly on the wall for that!

I'm so excited.

Shannon's Pick: Books!

This week, I chose to put our books as my choice for the staff pick. Our books at the store range from learning how to use crystals and herbs to how-to books on candles, akashic records, and more recently, even books on reiki! Some of our books are written by our very own Jacki Smith and Patty Shaw! If that's not reason enough to come check them out, I don't know what is! We have a wonderful selection of books here at the Candle Wick Shoppe, and I recommend everyone that can to come check out this great collection!

Reiki plus crystals class

Talking about crystals is like talking about wise old friends. I'm always blown away by all the ways crystals help us and heal us. After this class I started using crystals more regularly in my healing practice. It's true, they really made a difference. Plus they make the room sparkle. Adrienne said the room looked like a fairy explosion happened. Poor little tinker bell.Sent from my iPhone

Life with a spiritual path

More often than not, I've considered a spiritual path one of quiet reflection and lots of begging for healing and enlightenment. Though I had no huge expectations I knew I needed something to anchor me. What that got me was deeper understanding of myself and lots of encouragement from something I can only call the light.

Today I woke up really feeling and seeing that my life is a reflection of my efforts to understand what the hell I'm doing here, alive and breathing. All that goes right and all that goes wrong in my day to day has a direct connection to what I feel and know. How I respond to it is all up to me.

Today I woke up relaxed because I finally realized that the only thing I need to be in control of is me and all that entails. That took my fear down several notches. I became more neutral about the Jazz going on around me and most of all, as my husband said, I've moved from passive to patient. Honestly that has contributed enormously to calming my nervous system.

Today, as I prepare my taxes and later go visit family, I realize it's all my spiritual path and that makes me very happy.

It’s a Dorothy Miracle!

It’s a Dorothy Miracle!

This is a new phrase we have around the Candle Wick Shop, born from the workshop Dorothy Morrison did at our store last February.   We packed the house with Dorothy’s fans and they bought us out of not only Dorothy Morrison products, but anything they could buy.  Literally there were people coming into the store for weeks stocking up on anything  and everything.  I have to say, that day’s sales were equivalent to 2 normal weeks.

Whenever we experience a sudden positive change in fortune, we exclaim “It’s a Dorothy Miracle!”.  Dorothy always gets a kick out of the phrase and then immediately counters with “Now Darlin’, I’ll tell you the secret of creating a Dorothy Miracle.”   I will advise you all to listen well to how to create a Dorothy Miracle – this could change your life, or at least your month.

According to the gospel of Dorothy, the way to create a Dorothy Miracle is to give of yourself with no expectation of return.  Host a free class, give to the poor or help someone move.  Do something outside of your immediate circle that is a little uncomfortable, causes a bit of a sacrifice.  That is how you create a Dorothy Miracle.  If you have heard Dorothy teach, you can hear her voice as she says;

“You need to do something that brings money to someone else, you need to just give it with love and you will see it come back to you in droves.  Giving makes you grateful for what you already have.”

 

 

Thanks Dorothy!  Bawk! Bawk!

Kids who learn differently

Kids do learn differently and I was privileged to be around all the beautiful people who work really hard to make sure there are lots of options. We were at the Friends of Kids Who Learn Differently fair at Grove High School in Beverly Hills.

Emily and I chatted with parents of kids with special needs. We listened to stories of love, dedication, challenge and discovery.

What we shared was our desire to be of service with Coventry products and our Reiki Healing Center. To our delight a lot of parents had heard of Reiki and were willing to try it. Everyone agreed parents and kids alike can benefit from Reiki.



I didn't know if the Coventry candles would get on the participants radar but they did! My favorite customer was a 95 year old grandma who said our candles were something special and would be back with her pocketbook to purchase one. I giggled at her choice, the Attraction Love candle.

I believe we will be seeing some new faces at the Candle Wick Shoppe soon. Sigh what a great event!

Em's Staff pick of the Week!!!- Wall Scrolls

Em's Staff pick of the Week!!!- Wall Scrolls

So I was sitting and thinking, what can I pick, that we have in the store, that I absolutely love, and I haven't picked yet? Then it hit me, Wall Scrolls!!! I like to say I'm grumpy in the morning. Coffee and caffeine don't quite do the trick. I have book of inspirational quotes for the smart alack. I have to listen to some music with high energy (usually metal of some sort) and read a quote to get my morning giggle in. Not too long a go, I found a scroll that I absolutely loved, bought it, and now reading that scroll is apart of my morning giggle/ happy though before coffee. So, I've decided to spread the love and share the scrolls at 15% off in store only for the New Year kick start. Sale starts January 4th and ends January 10th.
