CHANGE IT’S INEVITABLE

Let’s face it; change is going to happen whether you want it to or not. As your children prepare for the new school year, I’m sure the anticipation of a new school, new grade or new teacher(s) create a little fear of change. Let’s face it; change is going to happen whether you want it to or not. My recommendation is to encourage your children to embrace this change.

“The year is changing not your life. The day when you crack your problems is a new day, a new life and a new year for you.” Unknown Author

 Staying healthy by eating right, exercise and getting enough rest and sleep will keep you and your child(ren) motivated and energized for this new beginning.

CELEBRATING 29 YEARS!

CELEBRATING 29 YEARS!

This Saturday, August 12 we are celebrating 29 years in business! From humble beginnings in a tiny front showroom with crystals, some incense, cassettes (music on tape), and consignment crafts we’ve grown both in footprint and reputation. And boy, we have learned a lot along the way! From staff members, teachers, customers, fellow retailers and even animals. Yes, we used to have two cats, Tigger and Gabrielle. Then we added parakeets and cockatiels, my blue and gold macaw, ShaNay (who is happy at my home now) and a beautiful white dove, Mikael who graced us with his presence for 25 years! The Crystal Garden is more than just a store; it is a family.

In 2005 with the ‘birth’ of Smudge in Spray, The Crystal Garden officially became a brand. We soon added my line of 7 self-published guided meditation CD’s and thus began the Wholesale Division. We now offer over 100 aromatherapy and positive thought products under our label. You can find The Crystal Garden Brand in the UK, the Netherlands, Japan, Germany, Canada, and of course, throughout the USA. Doing our part to heal the planet one spritz at a time! We’ve stayed true to our roots and still hand blend and bottle all of our aromatherapy products infusing them with extra love and intention.

In 2011 with the publication of my first book, Chakra Awakening (Llewellyn Worldwide), I was able to fulfill a lifelong dream of sharing the knowledge, I have been given with the world. Chakra Awakening is now in its seventh printing and is translated into seven languages making it truly international. As with everything else this was just the beginning, I now have five books, four decks, and two CD’s published with more on the way! See the back page of The Crystal Garden newsletter for more on these, many of which are also published in other languages. Following the success of these publications and years of teaching classes across the country, I created the Academy of the Spiritual Arts which is a sacred online space for learning and personal growth. We recently redesigned the site for added ease and functionality, check it out at www.AcademyOfTheSpiritualArts.com.

Be Happy Roll On Essential Oil by Margaret Ann LemboThe most recent addition is our “Be” line of Roll On essential oil blends. I created these essential oil blends with specific intentions in mind based on popular requests I have received over the years. More money, love, security, motivation, etc. Each essential oil is thoughtfully combined to fully support these intentions. This serves to give each one a unique aroma. Each bottle contains a proprietary blend of medical grade essential oils combined with fractionated coconut oil in an easy-to-apply cobalt roll on.

I want to thank each and every person who has been part of this journey, and I look forward to continuing it with you for many years to come. May you continue to feel love, peace, and harmony when you walk through the doors. Thank you for buying from us and keeping us in business all these years!

Gratitude! Gratitude! Gratitude!

A PICTURE IS WORTH A THOUSAND WORDS

A PICTURE IS WORTH A THOUSAND WORDS

They say, “a picture is worth a thousand words.” What better way to capture a memory than to take a picture. There are all kinds of pictures. For instance, tomorrow, June 29 we celebrate “Camera Day.” This day is set aside to applaud the advantages the camera has given to our society. However, think about the picture in your mind’s eye.We reflect on the past, and a picture comes to mind. We think about the future, and another comes to mind. When it comes right down to it, you hold the key to making your visions and dreams a reality.

An excellent way to capture your desires is to create a vision board to help you focus on your desired outcome. It’s easy to do. Get a notebook, big drawing pad or poster board, colored pens, glue, scissors, a pile of magazines and your imagination. Jot down a list of goals and desires. Capturing this visual will help you to focus and pursue your dreams. Most cell phones have a picture taking capability, so take a picture and bring it up often throughout the day to remind you of your intention. Navel Chakra Exercise Margaret Ann Lembo

Another way to remind you of your intention is Navel Chakra Spray. The Navel Chakra is the energy center where creativity resides. The ability to manifest reality is held here. It’s entirely up to you what you wish to manifest. The possibilities are endless. Pull the energy up from the belly to step into action to make it so!

This center is also the center for dreaming. To manifest anything, we must be able to see it in our mind’s eye. Contemplate these questions: What does it look like? How does it feel? How does it smell? Use all your senses: thought, emotion, taste, smell, touch, sight and sounds.

Remember, whatever you put your attention on will be created.

With love and gratitude,

Margaret Ann Lembo

SUMMER…IT’S FINALLY HERE!

The Summer Solstice is officially the first day of summer today, June 21. Summer conjures up all kinds of outdoor activities; spending time at the beach or lake, picnics with family and friends, gardening and the joy of a cloud burst bringing forth a breathtaking rainbow.
Many parts of the country have been experiencing record breaking rain, and with the rain, those pesky mosquitos join the fun! Using natural methods to control the bugs of summer has always been my first choice.
Lemongrass Essential Oil Medical Grade
 
Use Lemongrass Essential Oil Blend as a good insect repellent. It also reduces pet odors and helps to keep your pets free of ticks and fleas.
 Bye Bye Buggies Natural Insect Repellent and Room Deodorizer
Another choice is Bye Bye Buggies Spray. Use this spray to discourage most bugs and insects from landing or crawling onto treated area. (ants, flies, mosquitoes, chiggers, spiders, fleas and ticks) Spray every three hours as needed. This blend was created to repel insects, and yet it has proven to be the #1 deodorizer of bathroom odors, and pet smells.
 Peppermint Essential Oil Medical Grade
 
Summer is also the time for road trips. Use Peppermint Essential Oil as an aid to stay awake while driving. This oil serves double duty relieving the itching and irritation of mosquito bites.
 
For those of you who are interested in astrology and the zodiacal cycles, the Sun is at 0 degrees Cancer to start this next quarter. Cancer is the fourth astrological sign of the zodiac cycle and, therefore, the ruler of the fourth house of the astrological chart. The fourth house is associated with the home, family, real estate, your mothers (or fathers), and also how you see yourself. Cancer is a Cardinal sign, the planetary ruler is the Moon – a luminary or light – and its symbol is the Crab. The element associated with Cancer is Water. The key phrase for Cancer is “I feel.”
