Thanksgiving greetings!

on November 8, 2012 - 5:37pm

So, I am a bit late in getting this newsletter out this month, but I did it intentionally. I felt like we all needed a bit of a break after the fun and energy of Halloween, followed by All Saints’ Day and All Souls’ Day, not to mention the awful storm up North, and the election. Whew, seems like a lot to write, much less EXPERIENCE! I hope this Thursday is turning out to be wonderful for you. The weather, while cold, is still nice, and the sun is shining overhead as I write this. Autumn really is my favorite time of year, and Thanksgiving one of my favorite holidays.

October Blessings!

Good and happy October 1st, friends and family! Hope you are all enjoying yourselves! October always opens up something in my soul~ the thoughts of cooler weather, leaves changing color, outdoor events, and having some child-like fun always makes me smile with anticipation! I was always lucky enough to have a mother who made my costumes by hand~ I have never, once, had a store bought costume! I have dressed up every one of my thirty-six years too! What a blessing!

September Salutations!!

on September 6, 2012 - 1:12pm

So, this is my second attempt at sending this newsletter. I was about ¾ of the way done with the first one, and then a push of the wrong button left me staring at a blank screen. I am sure most of you are aware that it takes me a complete day to write out the information in these communications. While I do enjoy it, I will admit, it is a labor of love! So, after a few expletives, I have begun the re-writing process.  Kind of ironic, the word expletive… an OATH mind you, to destroy my computer! HA! I hope you get a good laugh from that!! Eventually, I can laugh too.

August is almost here!!

on July 27, 2012 - 1:24pm

As July is ending, I am reminded of how quickly time seems to be moving in my life~ is it the same for you? It seems I am moving from one thing to the next, and sometimes, it seems like a blur. As I get older, however, I do remind myself to be mindful...slow down, breathe, and reassess what is really important, and where I want to focus my attention~ I have learned to run my life, instead of allowing it, and others, to run it for me! This often proves to be a challenge, but one I feel I am getting better at overcoming!!

July Greetings!!

on July 12, 2012 - 1:32pm

Happy July! Hope you are all having wonder filled days!! We enjoyed having July 4th off, hope you did too!! As much as it has been a time of celebration, it has also been a time of loss. One year ago this month, my best friend and familiar, Sabrina (Bina) passed away. She had been my constant companion and protector for 16 years. When she died, I talked very little about it. It was very hard for me then, as well as now. Animals are amazing in their capacity for unconditional love, and giving you exactly what you need.

Jumpin' June Greetings!!

on June 1, 2012 - 1:01pm

Happy June! Hope life is treating you all wonderfully well! So, new inside Bellas we have hand-blown glass sea creatures (some that glow!), new stones, athames, new art, and so much more swirling around! I am expecting shipments of Kokopeli merchandise, wind chimes, yard art, lizards, birds, and so much more any day now!! I have new Goddess goodies, some new jewelry (including pendants of Diana, Lilith, and Demeter), and a huge shipment of Tarot decks all set to come in about two weeks!

Blessed May Greetings

on May 2, 2012 - 1:19pm

Blessed May is here! I don't know about you guys, but I am definitely ready to embrace the warm, inviting and nurturing energy of May! It has been a long couple of months! Many of you expressed feeling a bit out of sorts (myself included). The astrological energy in March and April was heavy! Thankfully, May offers a bit more stability, both financially and with relationships!

April Blessings!!

on March 31, 2012 - 6:49pm

Happy almost April!! To continue the theme of changes at Bellas, I am writing to update you about some changes in the way we have been offering classes! I hope this will make it easier for those of you who wish to attend to make it to a class or two! We would love to have you join us!! Going forward, drumming circle is now the last Saturday of each month at 6pm. Class is $10. Meditation is still the first Friday of every month at 7pm. Class is $10, and will focus on the themes from the Spiritual Living classes from the previous month.

Many March Blessings!

So, I hope this "extra" day of February is finding you wonderfully well! Leap years only occur every four years, which got me thinking about the number four. A number of foundations, a number of structure, the root chakra, grounding, our ability to deal with change (or not!). A number of overcoming obstacles, being detail oriented, establishing a social network. Hmmm...interesting. Also interesting were the thoughts that kept coming~ be like a willow~ BEND.

Festive February Greetings!

Happy February!! Hope this first month of the year 2012 has found you happy, prosperous, and looking forward to a bright future!! We just got in a fresh shipment of candles, incense, and some new statuary!! Looking for Brigid for Imbolc? Looking for a fun gift for your lover, or yourself? February is the month to celebrate love~ never forget, it comes in many shapes and sizes!! Start something new!! Lots of fun classes and workshops coming up this month!!
