New Life in New Zealand

Hello from Wellington, NZ! I’ve been here with my family for four months now … I’ve got the Energy Shop stocked and running, the family’s adjusted, and we’re all moved in to our little house in a close suburb called Karori.

House on the hill for my family of 6
If we press our face up to the glass on our bedroom window, we can see a corner of Wellington Bay, but mostly our view from the house looks like this:

Karori, Wellington, New Zealand

 
I love living up on the hill in this part of town. Every morning, I open the curtains and I’m reminded of where I am at. I can see the mountains off in the distance, and I can see what the weather is like 30-40 miles from my house. I’ve never had a view like this in my life!
 
We can drive just over the mountain we live on to the ocean. We arrived at the onset of winter, and we experienced a once-in-a-lifetime snowfall for the area back in August. But from what I hear, even when the weather warms up, the water stays rather cold because it’s coming up from Antarctica. We have yet to find out if we’ll be able to brave the cold and swim around the area, but we have plenty of beaches to enjoy:

And that’s just the majestic views! Next time I have a chance to sit down with this blog, I’ll tell you all about the friendly “Kiwis” (what New Zealanders call themselves), the abundance of free family activities, and the amazing atmosphere in this country. All the best, Lisa

A New Adventure ♥

Only a few short weeks ago, my family and I learned that we were to move from northern Virginia to Wellington, New Zealand for my husband’s job. Needless to say, we are beyond thrilled and we can hardly wait to embark on our new adventure!  We’ll be packing up and moving on shortly, and we’re set to arrive and settle into our new home on or about the first week of May.

What this means for the Energy Shop:

Surprisingly, very little! When I learned of our move, I made arrangements to move shipping and handling to another location (namely, my brother’s home office in Pittsburgh, PA). Adam has been packing and shipping your orders for just about a month now, and the transition could not have gone more smoothly! From here on, I will design, create, and smudge the jewelry in New Zealand and then ship it to him. By the time it’s listed, he will have it right there in Pittsburgh and you’ll receive it quickly, as usual. I am heading into packing and moving, but the Energy Shop is fully stocked and Adam is ready to take your order! ♥

What this means for custom orders:

Custom sizing and special orders are the only items that will experience a delay. In the past, if you wanted your bracelet to be a special size, you needed only mention it and I altered it, then shipped it off to you with only a few days’ delay. Right now, I’m in one location and everything stocked on the website is at another. I’ve taken custom sizing and special orders in the last month, and in order to fill them, the bracelets are shipped to me, altered, and then shipped to you. Adam and I have been able to complete that process in a week’s time, but as you can imagine, the shipping is going to take a bit longer once I am in New Zealand.

First, custom orders are closed for May–I can’t work with jewelry because my tools will be in transit. Once I’m back up in June, I will gladly accept alterations and special orders. Please contact me before placing a special order or sizing, so that I may give you a realistic timeline and share any other details you might need to approve. If I have supplies on hand, your order could take as little as 10 days. If I don’t, your order could take up to two months. I will do everything I possibly can to ensure that most orders are filled within a few weeks.

What it means to me:

I’ve lived in some extraordinary places, and I’m ready to embrace New Zealand! I have wonderful feelings about what’s coming next, for both myself and the Energy Shop. I thank you for your continued support.

To celebrate, I’m hosting a sale on Tuesday, April 19. I am here waiting for anything you need custom-sized, and I’ll get it to you within the week! Everyone is invited to enjoy 25% off your entire order with code: newadventure

See you then, and ♥ all the best, Lisa

A List of New Year’s Resolutions

The week in review has offered me insight and a list of New Year’s resolutions. This year I will . . .

  • Participate in four natural, adventurous, and inexpensive family mini-vacations (hiking, camping, touring local cities, etc.) [relational]
  • Run an 8 minute mile [physical]
  • Run 3 miles in under 30 minutes [physical]
  • Research Reiki Training (and start program if it fits) [spiritual]
  • Finish degree in Metaphysics [spiritual]
  • Complete second book [mental]
  • Spend less (business and personal expenses), and save more (to grow with) [financial]
  • Open second shop [financial]
  • Spread the word on the Energy Shop, have a total  of at least 1,000 FB fans [financial]

This blog will be a great way to track my progress, and I’ll cross them off as they are completed throughout the year. Like I said, this is a low-pressure situation, as too rigid a plan will leave little space for opportunities and possibilities to present themselves. If I had written my second book last year, I never would have had time to create and build the Energy Shop–it goes to show you never know what life has in store for you.

May your 2011 be filled to the brim with love, laughter, gratitude, spirit, and prosperity!  ♥

Spiritually Charged, Power Bead Bracelets and Jewelry at the Energy Shop!

Hellllloooo, little blog 🙂 it’s been awhile ♥ and we have some catching up to do.

Last year I published my book, The Rescue You Program, and when 2o1o hit I started this blog with full intentions of writing another. In fact, somewhere among my notebooks there’s one half of my next masterpiece written. I’ll soon be starting a search party for it.

It’s just that, you never know what life has in store for you. The Energy Shop came together for me, practically by itself, and it has taken over the second half of my year. I love that little shop, and I say thanks for the inspiration and talent to keep it running everyday. When I started, I bought a huge supply of white sage smudge sticks, thinking that was going to be the big seller. I figured, I love making jewelry, so I’ll list a few things with the smudge sticks–and maybe, just maybe, someone might buy some of my bracelets.

When all of the bracelets I listed sold out in the first week, I had to make more bracelets! And so it has developed and grown, and I have an amazing 800 and counting sales on Etsy with 100% positive feedback. I’m beyond ecstatic with my home-based business, and I still have a full supply of smudge sticks, if anybody’s interested 🙂

It’s been awhile since I’ve updated this blog, so today I’d like to feature a few of my favorite things from the shop.

 

Blue Chalcedony

 

Even after all this time,
The sun never says to the earth,
“You owe Me.”

Look what happens with A love like that,
It lights the Whole Sky. –Hafiz

This Blue Chalcedony Bracelet represents optimism and is said to bring acceptance of new situations. It opens the mind and improves perception. I love this bracelet for the New Year. Let’s Unleash the Possibilities in 2011!!

 

Colors of the 7 Chakras Bracelet

 

This Colors of the 7 Chakras Bracelet is a customer favorite.  For the Crown Chakra, I’ve used loving Alexandrite. For the 3rd Eye Chakra, spiritually-aware Amethyst. For the Throat Chakra, you have transformational Blue Agate and for the Heart Chakra, protective Green Jade. For the Solar Plexus I used joyful Yellow Topaz. For the Sacral Chakra, cleansing Amber. And finally, for the Base Chakra, I used passionate Red Jade. Combine these stones and these colors for a true alignment.

 

Gemstone Tree of Ambition

 

If you’re not into jewelry, you can use your Feng Shui 9-Square Bagua to position the gemstones in the ideal location of your home or office. This Tree of Ambition is made of Blue Goldstone, an uplifting motivator. And, if you haven’t noticed . . .

The Energy Shop is now organized by intention!  You can find all the items you’re looking for to Improve your Focus and Meditation, Honor your Spirituality and Faith, Channel Healing and Calming energies, Increase Love and Friendship in your Life, Enhance forces of Positivity and Protection, Maintain Health and Wellness, and/or Attract Wealth and Success.

Whatever your best intentions, I wish you a WoNdeRfuL Holiday Season and an abundance of good fortune for the New Year. Until next time, ♥
