Hi guys !
I was asked by several of you to share what is on my Studio Altar-s. If you follow me on social media, you probably have seen pics or short videos of them already but I was asked to be a bit more specific.
I did a short video showing you around in my Studio and what is on them (I have two-ish at the moment).
My husband keeps telling it smells like marijuana in there, and it is because I smudge with Sage everytime I step in the Studio to create ;)
I have a main altar, where my Creativity & Prosperity tray is. There is also inspiring artwork and candles.
On my Studio table, where I actually paint, there is a smaller one on which I change everything almost weekly I think (when I feel like to… not overthinking it, at all).
This is what is in my small gemstone jar, for now (there is some Unakite, citrine, quartz, amethist, Botswana agate, onyx, red jasper, blue howlite, lepidolite…):
From now on, I am adding crystal charging to the already Reiki I do on every artwork, at several stages of my creative process.
Most of my gemstones, magical oils, and candles come from my favorite place, The Sage Goddess. I belong to her Pentacle group, in which we learn witchy things and gemstones.
I also mention ZenaMoon as another source for my candles.
Locally, I have two different places I adore. For my crystal fix, I go in Granville Island’s shop Crystal Ark. And for more general things and books, I go to Banyen, in Kitsilano. I could spend HOURS in each…
Do you have sacred altars where you create ? In your home ? I invite you to share your pics in the Facebook page, I would love to discover your own altars.
Thank you so much to all of you who entered my giveaway to win a spot in my first solo class, Soul Deck.
I am sorry I can’t have everyone winning. There is no time limit to sign up though, so you can still join the fun of course ! I'd love to have you there.
Without further ado, the winner is……:
Congratulations Natasha !!!!I will email you today to give you the access to the class.
Today is the day I turn 29. Well, with the 9 hour time difference (I was born in France), I was officially born on the 19th, but it is okay to celebrate for two days, right ?
There is so much hope for this new personal year. So much dreams I wish to fulfill, or at least to jumpstart. So much love to spread.
28 was not an easy year but I lost 12kgs (± 26lbs), I’ve been letting go of some heavy blocks, I am integrating my spirituality back into my life and owning who I am, my husband and I celebrated 10 years of love for each other… so much love to be spread around.
However, I need to continue to learn to take it at my own pace and that this actually is okay to seem slow.
Je me défais enfin de certains blocages, je renoue avec qui je suis et donc avec ma spiritualité, j’ai fêté mes 10 ans d’amour avec mon mari… Tellement d’amour à partager. Cependant, je veux enfin être ok avec le fait de faire les choses à mon rythme même lorsque cela me paraît lent et que je voudrais desespérément que cela aille plus vite.
At 29, I wish to connect more with my Kindred Sisters, face to face when possible.
At 29, I want to be near the water more often.
At 29, I desire more peace in my Soul, and more peace in my home.
At 29, I wish to spread love on a constant basis.
At 29, I strive to be happy inside and out.
At 29, I make rituals and prayer part of my daily practice.
At 29, I will finally open myself up more to guidance.
At 29, my art will take new heights and reach many many places.
At 29, I let my True Self shine and be seen.
Welcome on a new edition of my weekly ritual, Gratitude Friday (if you are not familiar with it, please go read how it came up and what it is about).
Tomorrow is my birthday. And I know it is so weird for some people, but I love birthdays and look forward to mine all year long ;) If my husband reads this, know I am aware of how difficult it is for you, because I love surprises and it is not easy to manage.
It is time for me to kind of list, more or less privately, what 28 had taught me. what are the lessons. and also what I wish 29 will bring… but for now,
This week, I am thankful for:
- Working on my business with my husband
- Having finally launched Soul Deck, and for the people who signed up
- School starting next Monday, two weeks after it was supposed to
- 90s R&B music
- Birthday flower and presents received already, unexpected
- Hot baths
- Magical Sisterhood
- Talking to my brother on the phone
- Smoothies for dinner, salads for lunch, and all in between
- Beautiful and powerful gemstones
- Heart to heart talks (with my Mom, and with my Husband)
- Releasing tears
- The Sunshine will still had earlier this week
- The very good customer service from FitBit.
Tell me, what is on YOUR list ?
I am so happy to have open Soul Deck yesterday.
To celebrate and because it is my birthday week, I am giving you the chance to win your spot.
Good luck ! The giveaway will end on Saturday the 20th (my birthday) at 12:00 am.
