I am continuing to implement more exciting changes in my newsletter and in my business! I was always so bad with change- but  the only constant IS change! So I have learned to embrace it! Face the dragon-  when you embrace it, things work out; its the resisting that holds you back.

So I mentioned last month that one of the changes is my entire weekend; Saturday and Sunday I am no longer in Punta Gorda markets, it was a difficult decision, but when I "let it go" I was rewarded with new opportunities! We also talked about how much fun I was having, and that I only had a month to work on more inventory, well hurricane Irma took care of pretty much that whole month! Believe it or not, I really did lose about 3 weeks, ( which is why this is late )so I am making some changes, and doing what I can to let go of what I WANTED accomplished, and ACCEPT what I have accomplished, as well as work on more inventory of course.  The hurricane has also changed the way I think about things personally too, it was a real "eye opener"- all is well, it was just a very interesting learning experience. 

I'm sure you've noticed my newsletter this month has actually been for the next three months; this brings me to my next change. I have decided to try a QUARTERLY NEWSLETTER! Times change, and I understand- maybe you don't want to read a newsletter each month? So I'll give this a try- feedback would be most appreciated btw. I could really use your help with this- I am going to spend more time on Facebook and Pinterest, I will post pictures, specials, blogs, promotions, information, ect., so if you have not "liked" my Facebook business page- PLEASE do so here;

https://www.facebook.com/IBUSTSTONESFORALIVING/     If you have liked it- please consider inviting your friends to do so, thank you! I know more people prefer social media to reading a newsletter, so I am trying to change things up and give you what you want! This is a great platform to connect to all my wonderful customers, I think it has more of a community feel to it, so please feel free to contact me on Facebook, or comment on my posts. 

We started talking about the 10 MUST HAVE STONES, and THE CRYSTAL OF THE MONTH, so I have finished these topics, starting in January, we will have all new things to discuss!  The last topic is the CHAKRAS; we started this idea, and it has gone over very well, so I wanted to talk about the last three remaining chakras. However, last month I accidentally did the THROAT CHAKRA instead of the HEART CHAKRA! Kudos to anyone that caught that mistake! I apologize, I guess I got a little ahead of myself! So now we will do the heart, third eye, and crown.

The HEART CHAKRA is the fourth chakra, located in the middle of your chest. This chakra gives us the ability to express love. Blockages can manifest as immune system, or heart problems, or lack of compassion. This energy center is connected with emotion and human love. The color is green, and also the color rose (which is the color of love). Stones that are beneficial are; rose quartz, aventurine, peridot, malachite, and rhodochrosite.

The THIRD EYE CHAKRA is the sixth enery center, located in between the eyebrows. This chakra is the center of intuition and awareness. Blockages manifest as sinus or eye problems. The third eye chakra is associated with thought, some say it governs thought, also vision; especially psychic vision. This is also the chakra of spiritual love and connection. The color is indigo(deep purple/blue) Helpful gems are lapis lazuli, and sodalite.

The CROWN CHAKRA is the seventh chakra, located at the very top of the head. It is related to your personal spiritual connection to the universe. Blockages may manifest as psychological problems. This chakra is our connection to our higher self, and to the divine. It is associated with wisdom, and integration of our eternal selves with our current physical selves. Think of it as an umbilical cord to God/Creator The color is purple/violet. Stones for this chakra include amethyst, sugilite, and charoite.
