Dance Your Way to Happiness @High Vibrations

Ever have a day where you just want to climb back into bed, cover your head and shut the world DOWN?

Over the past year it’s been very difficult for people to understand their energy levels and feelings.

Many people have turned to Yoga or Meditation to regain their inner peace, yet it all seems difficult.

Introducing Sam Persaud

 Sam Persaud of High Vibrations offers a multitude of healing practices to assist us.

New to our area, Sam hails from San Jose, California.  It was there that Sam recognized and trained her spiritual self.

Having credentials in Dance, Reiki Healing, Meditation, Law of Attraction and more only allows us to visualize what Sam is able to do.

Speaking with her, you feel who she is.  You feel the joy, the love of life, her spirituality.

Realigning Your Energy!

Now imagine that “back to bed” feeling – yet you force yourself out the door; head to the High Vibrations Studio for a dance class.

Beginning the session the weight of the day sits heavy on your shoulders.

The unimaginable happens!  Music creeps into your mind, and then your body feels it and finally your soul.  You are surrounded by a divine vibrational love – in the music.  You feel lighter.  Your mood changes.  You feel a collective community around you.  Thoughts enter and pass through your mind.  There is a peace felt – a calming within.  You are healing from the “heaviness” of the day!

Many Communities to Enjoy!

Sharing our spirituality within a group can really help to heal our daily struggles and understand them.

Sam’s mission in life is to assist us on a journey of endless possibilities as a spiritual guide and mentor.

High Vibrations offers many communities under one roof to help you begin your own journey.

There is guided meditation to assist with the cleansing of your mind; allowing peace and calm to enter.

Think about Reiki Energy Healing where the strength of Sam’s belief is enough to share her energy with you; allowing healing treatment for mind, body and spirit.

Begin Your Journey...

Maybe joining a Spiritual Mentorship Program would answer some of your questions and free your hesitations.

High Vibrations is certainly a place to begin your experience.

Reach out to Sam, feel her energy, join the community and begin your journey!

Just a Card? – I Think Not!!

For centuries the Tarot Cards have tumbled through history; a tantalizing blend of mystery and beauty.  The cards are packed with potent imagery and ancient symbols.  These cards have predicted the rise and falls of Kings and Empires.

Such Mystery!

The origins of Tarot Cards are as mysterious as the source of their power.  How can a deck of cards probe the past and unlock the force of the future?

Tarot cards seem to be able to illuminate every facet of life.  They are a wonderful way to get into all your negative and positive energy in terms of how you’re conducting your life.  They can show what you’re questioning and what you can do to correct patterns to make better decisions.

During a Reading...

Reading Tarot cards is a very personal thing.  Your reader interprets each card for you by understanding the card itself and using their deep understanding of intuitive nature.

Questions often asked are, “Am I on the right track?” “Why am I making these decisions?”

The readers believe that the cards are a code and they act as the code breaker.

Becoming a Reader!

Becoming a reader requires dedication and hours of study – as well as an internal intuitiveness.  To the uninitiated the cards are just pictures.  To the trained reader they are a language which they translate for you.

Boundless Choices!

The modern day Tarot deck was created in the early 20th century after Arthur Edward Waite read the Book of Doctrine and Ritual of High Magic written by Eliphas Levi in 1854.  Waite hired Pamela Coleman Smith to design the artwork for each card.  The deck is always comprised of 78 cards, 56 Minor Orcana and 22 Major Orcana.  The Rider Waite Smith deck is still widely in use today.  It was at that time that the decks began to be used expressly in fortune telling.

Decks are now made in very contemporary themes with each card telling a snapshot story.

Experience a Reading with Clair

At Clarity of Connections, Clair Marsland not only sells some of the most beautiful decks – she’s a reader as well.  Clair introduces us to some of her most loved cards:

The Sun:  Is the happiest card in the tarot! The Sun breathes life into everything he touches. This is a card of joyful celebration and a vibrant sign of positivity and success! Who wouldn’t want this card to come up in a reading? 

The Star:  She sends a message of divine timing and renewed hope. This card is all about serendipity, faith and wish fulfillment. 

King of Wands:  Is an entrepreneurial spirit, natural born leader and represents ideas that can be ultra successful. 

Page of Cups:  This is the card of the dreamer. Like the first inkling of love. This card has the energy of any dream being absolutely possible. A card of magic and a joyful open heart. 

Please call and connect with Clair to find out more on having a reading done – or – purchasing and enjoying a deck of your very own!

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!!
