Shop Profile: Merry meet - Whether you have been on the path for many lifetimes or are just being drawn to seek enlightenment for the very first time, The Awareness Shop is a great place to find just what you are looking for.
We are a truly unique Metaphysical Center carrying the largest variety of Crystals (over 200 different kinds, ranging from 50˘ to over $700) , many hard to find Magickal Tools, loads of jewelry, ritual garb, cloaks and Statuary (including rare, unique, handmade and antique one-offs) along with hundreds of Esoteric Book Titles, many of which appear on 'required reading lists'.
You'll find oodles and oodles of Tarot decks & all sorts of divination tools to cover just about every kind of taste or culture, no matter what medium calls to you.
There's also a full range of candles - from unscented mini-tapers for quick spell work, through 80+ kinds of hand-poured, naturally scented, charged votives to hand-crafted, ritual pillar candles created for a specific magickal intent.
The Awareness Shop prides itself on having the widest variety of stock at extremely reasonable prices - our 15gm Nag Champa is just $1 and we have hundreds and hundreds of other flavors of incense in stick, cone, extruded, granular, resin and powder - many of which are entirely hand-crafted. We have a boat-load of incense boats and all manner of other incense burning accessories (check out the smokin' trees) . We also have absolutely everything you need to make your own incense (handmade mortar & pestles, over 170 different herbs, resins and a whole gamut of essential oils) . And, when it comes to sage and smudge, you need to travel a long, long way to find a bigger range.
The Awareness Shop also offers a 128 page full color catalog and seekers guide. Way more than a regular mail order catalog, our 'Guide For Seekers' could be more accurately described as a condensed, magickal encyclopedia - packed with a wealth of information that has been many years in the making.
It features a full pictorial guide to a great many of the crystals we sell, along with detailed information on their metaphysical properties together with guides to their selection, use, cleansing and care. Not only is this an invaluable aid to identifying crystals, but so comprehensive is the information in this section alone, you would need to purchase a significant number of books to find this kind of detail elsewhere!
As if this were not enough, we also explain the magickal properties of hundreds upon hundreds of candles, herbs, aromatherapy oils, incenses and magickal tools and provide detailed instructions on how to use them.
The guide also features useful and informative sections on color awareness, astrology and crystal healing along with surprisingly detailed information on sabatts and the magickal year.

Sabbat Celebrations - Come and join us in a safe environment as we honor the Ancient One’s and the ever turning Wheel

We offer Reiki sessions as well as training from Level I to Teaching Masters degree. Learning Reiki is a serious commitment. It is a healing art taught in stages or degrees, that are accompanied by attunements. Each attunement brings about new cleansings and helps us to deal with our Karma. Reiki will help you to love yourself & know yourself on a deeper level.
Reiki differs from other laying on of hands healing because of its use of physical positions to apply the energy over and through the Chakra system. Also, it is different due to the fact that the healer is required to be opened and attuned by the degree process. The opening or attunement process works from the top or Crown chakra downward. The Reiki energy flows in this manner throughout each healing as well. Reiki is one of the most effective methods we currently have for transferring the energy. Reiki uses life force energy to heal the body, mind and spirit. Sometimes negative energy is caught in the person's etheric body, or the person has a block. In instances like this you can combine your Reiki with crystals and remove the block or negative energy and perform Psychic Surgery on the etheric body or Aura.
Basically Reiki is an energy that is passed or taught much like the game of telephone. That is why methods may vary from teacher to teacher and different things may be taught. We firmly believe that it takes the human body a while adjust to the new Reiki energies which are passed as part of each attunement. For this reason we feel that the, so called, ‘Reiki Warrior weekends’ where all attunements are given almost on top of each other are an impractical and irresponsible way of teaching this ancient healing art.
When seeking a Reiki Master, you should also be mindful of your lineage. Should you choose to be mastered by me you will be fifth in line from Hawayo Takata, the (now deceased) Grand Master of Reiki.
Reiki Level I - 4 Classes each with a separate Attunement
Reiki I Is all about self healing. You take these 4 sessions and truly get to know yourself on a deeper level. You may also notice that you begin to feel much more connected with the world around you, more at ease and far more able to cope with difficult situations. Most students go thru a purging at this time and can sometimes even actually experience a period of physical illness, as the negative energies and other ‘oogies’, that they have been holding on to, are released.
Reiki Level II - 2 Classes and 1 Attunement
Class 1: The Level II Attunement
Cho ku rei & Sei he kei are given
Hand placements to heal others when they are present
Class 2: Distance Healing for Individuals
Hon sha ze sho nen is given
At this point all students must partake in hands on training as they work on members of the community. This internship is an invaluable part of the learning process. It allows the student to develop their true style for administering Reiki as well as build confidence that they can share this energy. Seeing it work is the best way to truly understand it. A Master teacher is always present to give guidance and pointers.
Reiki Level III - 2 classes and 1 attunement
Class 1 -The Reiki Masters Symbol (Dia ko myo)
Distance Healing Grids for Groups of recipients
Class 2 - How to teach others Reiki
and most importantly how to Attune
After you have completed this level you will be able to attend Reiki Masters Meetings, where we will share with you other symbols, attunements and ceremonies. These meetings are a great way to keep in touch with the other students and the Reiki energy.
• Psychic Consultations
Our readings are done in a private setting with care and compassion. A reading should be a positive experience that helps you to avoid negative events by alerting you to them. A consultation can help you to gain a much clearer perspective of what's going on around you. We have a wonderful group of psychics available every day. Walk-ins are welcome, but appointments are recommended.
Our store owner, Lisa has been reading for over 17 years and is a Clairaudient Psychic (telepathically hears the information from your spirit guides) . Unfortunately this means she can’t allow taping, but pen and paper will be provided. Whether your questions concern spiritual matters, business or financial consulting, Romance counseling, or health issues, she uses the Rider-Waite Tarot, along with psychometry, to retrieve accurate insights. As your life’s drama is illuminated to her, she will use practical humor to discuss methods of coping or planning for the best results. Even if you have no specific questions a reading can open your conscious mind to things hidden in the subconscious. At the end of a session you will be GIVEN crystals that can help to draw to you that which you need.
We are so glad you happened to connect with the special place in this world we have been given to look after. Over the years we seemed to be pushed more and more to grow and work in the light. Our circle just keeps growing and you are very welcome to join us .
