Back to normal

“They” said running a shop would be hard work, this I knew and was ready for but like a lot of things attempted for the first time not something you can completely prepare for either on an emotional or practical level. And it is, at times, tough going. Sometimes the sheer volume of tasks takesContinue reading “Back to normal”

Astro insights 

I’ve spent the majority of my shop day in the meditation/therapy room enjoying its nurturing uplifting colours and sweet smells today. The primary reason for this is that i’ve been Astro-Rocking. No i’ve not mentioned that for a while as it took a little bit of a back seat over the last couple of months.Continue reading “Astro insights “

The great adventure

Shop day off today so since I missed last week’s tidy and sort day due to travelling back from up north I made sure it had plenty TLC.  It’s always a lovely feeling getting the shop ready for the week ahead.  It’s “as above, so below” so the love, care and cleansing I give theContinue reading “The great adventure”

These times 

Another week has passed for our little shop space and i’m still feeling the magic.  I am honoured to have been guided to bring this vision into being. And I know now that it’s not my vision or my idea rather I am custodian to an idea that was already floating in the ether.  NotContinue reading “These times “

What’s my name?

I realised today as I was closing up for the evening that the shop/space was really starting to looked lived in. I’m not using that in the way that my Mum used to say my room was “lived in”, rather that certain warm and friendly energies from new friends from the local community have snuggledContinue reading “What’s my name?”

A new kind of Discipline

The start of Week 3 in the shop. I’ve already developed my own routine or rather ritual before opening. A large part of my vision was having a safe space for people to express themselves and that means safe in a number of different ways including my own energy. We all have our “stuff” whizzingContinue reading “A new kind of Discipline”

Virgo Rest Day

It’s been that lovely kind of Moon in Virgo day today. We worked at the shop from midday to midnight yesterday sorting out the therapy room and making some changes to the shop. So today we treated ourselves to a lie in (self-care) before starting on a bunch of chores that had piled up sinceContinue reading “Virgo Rest Day”

Family ties

I am writing this from the cosiest spot in our therapy/meditation room after we spent the best part of the day working on it. I could possibly call this post “It’s amazing what you can do with a few saris” because today my inner Blue Peter presenter (UK) erm Martha Stewart ? (US) has beenContinue reading “Family ties”

Retail therapy

I’ve been quite tired today which is no surprise given the pace I’ve been working at the last few weeks. This is what you might call “normal” tired. That is, normal people of a usual healthy disposition (whoever they are) would also feel a bit weary with this level of extertion so this is somethingContinue reading “Retail therapy”
