Crystal Meditation at the Studio~Crystal Alignment & Chakra Balancing

The crystal meditations that are held here at the studio are a relaxing way to restore balance to the body, mind, and spirit by placing various gemstones on or around the body. During the meditation you relax to sound healing music that assists in clearing and balancing the chakras. Reiki, an ancient healing art that also helps to elicit balance and well-being is also shared.

Meditations are usually held monthly and may consist of different focus areas such as general chakra balancing or more specific focus areas such as manifesting abundance, love, good health, and more.

The meditations are usually between 30 to 45 minutes long depending on the focus area and with each class a set of stones that we will be using are included in the price. The price for the class varies from $15 per person to $25 per person depending on the focus and the stones used.

Space at the studio is limited so registration prior to class is always required.

You can find upcoming classes and instructions for registration in the events list on the right side of this page.

 

A Delicious Golden Milk Recipe~ Ginger and Turmeric

Here is a simple golden milk recipe that you can make from fresh or dried ginger and turmeric that is quick, delicious, and healthy.  Make sure you are using an organic root to avoid pesticides and other contaminates.  This is a delicious way to get some of the supportive healing benefits these golden treasures have to offer us. Below I’ve listed how I make mine from both fresh and powdered root, depending on what I have on hand.

If you are using fresh root first grate, chop, or slice some fresh turmeric and ginger into a tea strainer.

Next heat the milk on the stove until it comes to a simmer and pour into your cup. What milk you use depends on your individual preference. I use an organic whole milk or almond milk. The fat in the milk will help increase the bioavailability of the turmeric in the body.

I usually let it steep for about 10 minutes or so.  Then I pull out the strainer and add some honey and top with cinnamon to taste.

If I am using the powder I’ll add about a 1/2 teaspoon each of the ginger or turmeric into the cup, or sometimes I just use 1 tsp of powdered turmeric (no strainer needed). Next pour the warmed milk into the cup, stir well, and add honey and cinnamon.

The delicious end result.  I mostly enjoy this in the evening before bed but it is great any time of the day.

There are abundant ways to make golden milk and many great recipes to be found. Keep in mind with turmeric it is said that you should consume it with healthy fats, black pepper, or even citrus so that the body can more easily absorb the healing benefits of the root.

Depending on the time of year, the studio carries fresh organic ginger and turmeric. I handcraft all of dried ginger and turmeric powders found here as well.

 

Freshly Harvested Organic Turmeric & Ginger Arrive at the Studio

On my constant quest for good, fresh, organic ginger and turmeric I have recently been able to acquire some from an organic grower in Hawaii.  With the abundant health benefits of these golden treasures I am able to make a variety of preparations from tinctures to powders. Previous to this I have been very limited with what I could make, especially with turmeric, because of the very small amounts I could get from trusted sources in my area. The fresh roots and preparations will be available to my clients in the studio’s Healing Boutique.

I really can’t stress enough the importance in knowing what you are using in your food and putting into your body.  Why you should choose organic is a topic in itself but pertaining to herbs, teas, and spices most of us have no idea where they are coming from and in that unknown space there are often preservatives, additives, pesticides, and radiation! These substances are surely counterproductive to any type of supportive health benefits that they may offer.

I look forward to sharing how I make many of these preparations along the way!

Call or email me to schedule a reading in person or by phone. You may also go to my online booking site to schedule.

For the reading, I draw cards and share the messages on the cards along with any intuitive and spiritual guidance that I may receive and be able to offer to deepen the meanings or images. When drawing cards, it is impossible to be “wrong.” Your angels will always answer the question you ask with loving and divine care. I am not the source of this divine information, and these reading are not to be considered “psychic” readings, however, I am able to provide a clear channel for the angels to get their messages through to you. All of my angel card readings are meant to be easy, healing, and informative.

For years I’ve used many different types of oracle cards and divination methods, but when I discovered angel cards I was attracted to the gentle, loving guidance that they provide. I discovered that they can be a powerful tool that can help to guide you in every aspect of your life, and I decided to become a certified angel card reader so that I could provide readings as another way to help guide my clients and others towards a happy, healthy lifestyle.

Three card romance reading is $14.00

Five card romance reading is $21.00
