Spirit Collab was created by me, a rebellious Aquarian mom-of-two in the early months of 2018 from a giant push from the universe when it decided to literally knock me on my ass so I could barely walk. New Year’s Eve had just passed, ritual had been conducted, intentions had been set, and a word of the year was chosen. This word was “action”. The word action was to meant encourage me to start a side hustle in the realm of spirituality as it had always been at the forefront of my curiosity. I had felt this call for a while but could never muster up enough courage to see it through.
The first 15 days of the new year had little to no action and I’m certain the universe had grown tired of my shit. I had every excuse not to pursue something exciting and meaningful- I was “too busy” with a second baby, I couldn’t decide what to do, I had nothing to offer, the list went on. The universe rolled its eyes and scoffed as it decided to clear my entire schedule so I could get to work. One wrong twist and then literally falling on my ass and there I had it- all the free time I could ever dream of aside from plenty of physiotherapy, chiropractor, body-talk, and reiki appointments. I managed to herniate a disc in my low back causing tremendous pain, little mobility, and in turn, all of a sudden I had a lot of down time!
During the process of healing I became incredibly bored and frustrated in the lack of progress I was seeing. After pulling some angel cards and attending a few energetic sessions it suddenly dawned on me what I was supposed to be doing. I had realized why I had manifested this injury in my life and knew that if I wanted to heal, I needed to follow through with my word and intentions that I had set for myself. Little did I know that my word of the year was planning to manifest itself in a big way.
My first action was to order some crystal beads. I began creating, then selling, and eventually supplying small shops across Alberta and Saskatchewan with my beautiful creations. This turned into booking bracelet making parties, energetic workshops in collaboration with some of my most favourite businesses, and more exciting opportunities that I am excited to share with you all.
And the best part? I HEALED. As I worked more and more with the crystals the faster I began to heal. And by heal I mean I was healing more than my injury. I was healing old belief patterns that no longer served me, I was healing old traumas and unhealthy mindsets. I found a deep love and respect for myself that was longing to be unveiled to my own self. I found a connection to spirituality and my heart on an even deeper level. I’ve learned that healing is not linear in any sense. My healing journey will always be a work in progress but in my humble opinion, if I continue to cultivate awareness and gratitude, I’ll do just fine.
If you’ve made it to the end of this post then I want to thank you for taking the time to cruise through my website and for being a faithful supporter. You mean the world to me and I am infinitely grateful.
