Clarity of Connection with Clair

Clarity of Connection with Clair is now OPEN!!

Clair Marsland has lived life as a global citizen; having grown up in the South of England, residing in both the United Arab Emirates and Louisiana as well!

Meeting Clair we’re immediately taken by her warm and open personality.  It’s very easy to understand how she came to open her shop.

Clarity of Connection is a shop filled with energy and the beauty of crystals.

Everything from raw or tumbled crystals to unique jewelry can be found amongst the beautiful Tarot Cards and candles.

Book a moment in time with Clair for a Reiki treatment or a reading – the choice is yours!

Clair has always been drawn to helping others and has spent many years as a PSW.  Now she’s at home with her crystals in her sun-filled shop.

In discussing crystals with Clair we decided to discuss five of the strongest most favored crystals.

Amethyst (Purple)

Clair teaches us that amethyst (purple) is a very powerful healing and protective crystal known for its deep purple hues.  It is connected to the crown chakra and is a great stone to protect your body from any kind of negative energy; be it emotional or from electromagnetic frequencies.  It is quite often the first crystal people are drawn to when getting to know crystals.

Golden Azeztulite (Deep Yellow)

Here we learn that this is a high frequency quartz valued as a crystal of creative manifestation.  It connects with the solar plexus chakra and third eye chakra stimulating the awakening of the light body.

Rainbow Flourite (Dark Green/Blue)

Rainbow Flourite is a great crystal for clearing or stabilizing the aura.  It’s extremely effective against computer and electromagnetic stress.  Flourite draws off stress and heightens intuition.

Labradorite (Dark Green/Blue)

We’re told that this crystal has flashes of iridescent light when turned.  Along with being a very beautiful crystal Labradorite is a bringer of light, raising your consciousness and connecting you with higher universal energies.  It is a barrier to negative energies.  Labradorite calms an overactive mind and energizes the imagination.

Apophyllite (Clear)

Apophyllite is a great stone for meditation, dream recall and clairvoyance.  It enhances mental clarity and assists higher self/angelic contact.

Drop in to Clarity of Connection at 179 Anne St. S. Monday, Tuesday and Fridays, or call to book your appointment.

It’s certainly a lovely new shop worth investigating…..and much to learn from Clair herself.

Bell, Book & Candle – A Unique Downtown Store

Have you ever walked past 133 Dunlop Street East and thought – “What a unique store?” Welcome to Bell, Book & Candle! Maureen Cosme and daughter Maria will be so happy to be able to welcome you in once again.

Bell, Book & Candle is not just a bookstore – to me it’s a sanctuary. Not only can I walk through the many, many shelves of discovery…the feelings that I get from the books, crystals and accroutrement sing to my soul.

I know I’m not alone when I say it’s a place where normally I leave the hectic pace of the outside world, find a chair in a quiet corner to either browse through a newly found treasure – or even meditate for a few minutes to clear my mind.

Maureen offers a wide variety of ways to find answers for those on a spiritual journey or quest. To be discovered are new and used books, crystals, giftware, incense – even singing bowls.

It’s not a shop to hurry through – it has an energy to be savored and experienced.

Virtual Shopping Tours - Online!

During the past year that unique feeling has truly been minimized. Maureen is doing a wonderful virtual shopping tour live feed hosted by Carrie, an on-site team member. This virtual tour takes place every Wednesday at 2pm. Should you not be available at that time, the ladies post it to their Facebook site to be enjoyed by everyone.

You can also call or email the shop to book a personal virtual shopping tour and arrange for curbside pickup. Either way you will be introduced to new product and all available stock.

Often the spiritual among us find online shopping difficult for some of the items. The energy of many items must be felt to be treasured. The vast array of crystals certainly fall into this category.

I have watched and truly enjoyed as Carrie has guided us through what’s available. She’s so relaxed and informative that I feel myself actually settling in just to enjoy the tour.

Even though being in the energy of the store is so vital, Maureen, Maria and Carrie are exceptional tour guides!

Great Product Lines!

Some of the products available are the much desired essential oils. Maureen carries a line of ethically produced, high quality oil from New Directions, a Toronto based company. All I can say about that is…You are truly shopping local with that purchase! Actually a number of products available are Canadian. That makes me feel great about my purchases!

The collections of candles and incense seem endless, as do the choices, sizes and shapes of available crystals.

Arrange Your Shopping Experience!

You could book your personal shopping time or call the shop and leave a message with your desires. Perhaps order a mystery bag as well.

One things for sure…We’ll all breathe a sigh of relief when the world can reopen again – but until then, this wonderful downtown sanctuary has found a very visual way to stay in touch with their customers.
Well Done Ladies!!
