I have been guided to discuss the difficult topic that is grief. When we lose someone our world spins into chaos as we attempt wrap our minds around what has occurred. Each person grieves in their own way and deals with loss differently. It’s important to let yourself grieve properly and to know that it is okay (and completely normal) to need help and actively seek it out be it professional or leaning on loved ones. I highly recommend and urge you strongly to reach out and get help especially if you find your grief begins to make it difficult to function in your daily life and/or you have thoughts of hurting yourself, someone else, or thoughts of suicide.
Buddha said “The problem is you think you have time.” Many times loved ones are taken from us too soon in a sudden way. Even if a loved one falls ill and suffers a long sickness I’ve always felt there is never enough time with those we love and care about. Sometimes when we lose someone we end up feeling like we didn’t get the chance to say something to them. This can be especially true if the relationship with the person we lost was not in a good place at the time of their passing. Either way we are left without closure which can make our grief that much harder to heal.
One thing I found to be a valuable experience is an exercise I call “Letters to the Afterlife.” In this exercise you will pour every emotion out and allow yourself to purge every thought and feeling regarding the death of someone you knew. You will write down all of the things you never got to say to them, confessions you never got to make, anger/hurt/resentment you need to express, or to just let them know how much you love them and miss them. This is also a chance to say good bye. I will outline the steps below. The important thing about this exercise is to allow yourself to express everything without censoring anything. Don’t feel like you have to be positive, be as honest as you can, say what you mean and be blunt and direct. Understand that no one else will ever get to read anything you express (as the letter will be burned and destroyed) so let it all out.
Letters to the Afterlife
As you continue work through your healing process things can surface that you may not have thought of when completing the initial exercise that you feel should have been included. You can repeat the exercise if needed. Do not rehash what you said in the in the initial letter repeat the exercise only if you have new/different things that you feel you need the deceased to hear directly in order for you to heal. If things that you already said in the initial exercise still bother I recommend journaling, repeating the mantra at the end of #7 every time you feel bothered by the thoughts, and meditation. If you find you feel overwhelmed by the thoughts/emotions please seek out help, you can begin by talking to a loved one but I strongly recommend professional help especially if you find talking with a loved one does not seem to help you.
If you have any questions or if you find this exercise helpful please sent me an email via our contact form, or leave a comment below! I am happy to help but also love to hear what works for you as it may help others in their own journeys through a difficult time.
Your Spirited Guide,
One of the most popular and effective cleansing techniques for healers in Moon cleansing. The energies of the moon have long been associated with healing and the sacred feminine. This process is effective for all stones and purposes, but for simplicity sake I am focusing on the healing benefits.
The full moon is best for this process, although strong waxing moons are effective as well. Allowing the cool and calm energies of the moon balance out your healing crystals will keep your healing tools free of external energy and charged for healing work. The process is very simple, and with all things, simple is the best way.
First off, it really does not matter if it is cloudy, the process seems to work just as well. Also placing the crystals directly onto the ground has the best results, however if you put them in a container and do not have them in direct contact with the ground, benefits are still gained. Placing the Crystals outdoors works best, however, you can keep them indoors and gain the moon’s cleaning powers and mystic energies. If indoors, place when the moonlight will reach them and opening the windows is preferred but not necessary.
As to the frequency of cleansing, well, let your intuition be your guide, but if you consistently cleanse at the full moon, you will cleanse once every 28 days. Cleansing with this frequency not only keeps your tools cleansed and charged, but also assist you in getting into the rhythm of the Lunar world. This world is a great place to tap into for assistance in the healing arts.
Thank you for reading, We hope you find the above of assistance in your Journey. Please feel free to comment below your experiences using these techniques. Wander well.

We are going to discuss one method we use for our really metaphysically significant items we forge. We go through all these steps to ensure the purest energies for our customers for items of great power. We may use less steps for more mundane crafted items. We always suggest our customers cleanse and attune to the items upon receipt. Unless they are receiving the item ‘Charged’ then they can simply tune the items to their aura upon receipt.
All our significantly crafted metaphysical items received the following steps upon completion of the item. We have different rituals that we perform while crafting the items which we will discuss elsewhere. This discussion focuses after crafting to the receipt of the Item by the owner. For items that people bring in to have cleansed or charged that we have not crafted, we take the time to fully understand the item prior to performing the processes upon it.
If someone requests an item to be charged, we then take it out and perform the requisite prayers and rituals to fulfill the customers needs. This is usually done for our Reiki practitioners or our other energy healers. We are also happy to charge items of a protective nature. We will generally not charge items of a harmful or offensive nature. However all things are possible. Like stated before, not all our items go through each step, which is all dependent upon needs of the customer and needs of the item.
Contact us if you have any questions about the topics discussed above. If you would like to have an item of power crafted, let us know, and we may be able to fulfill that need.

The pace continues unabated as many divergent activities all start to come together. I am talking shop talk here. The application ( and fee) are in for the township zoning commission, for our variance to open up the Wellness center / rock shop/ supply store.
We slowly are completing the inside of the store, getting ready for the ok to go full tilt and get ourselves ready to open. We are balancing the projects between usefulness and utility. When we get the go ahead, we can hope to complete the projects in a timely manner.
We have been putting in the herb gardens, flower gardens and even a few veggies. We will have a great crop of home grown herbs for the use of our visitors next year. This year is going well, and our little plantlings are using the abundant rain to grow their roots deep and strong. We hope to get the landscaping well on it's way so our visitors can relax along winding paths of abundant flowers. Again, this year will be sparce, but we are growing for the future.
We are crafting many useful items for spiritual growth. Things we do not construct ourselves we have been working with other crafts people who specialize in their arts. We have been gathering together a collection of items we hope will delight, amaze, and most of all assist in the spiritual journeys. We hope to have many of those specialists visit and be available to the public from time to time to discuss their wares and/or abilities.
If there is something or someone you really wish to see at the shop feel free to contact us so we can include that for you.
We are hoping for an August soft open of the shop, with us refining our center throughout the fall and having a great big grand opening in the spring! We hope to see you there.
