Crystal Space, Silsden

Friday, 22 March 2013


Hello everyone. Welcome to spring!
Its been a quiet time in the shop since the new year. The cold winter months of January and February are always the hardest for shops everywhere. I have noticed that on sunny days I do see more customers. And now its end of March and still snowing!

 
Some changes in shop opening hours.
I am opening 9.30-3.45 Thursdays and Fridays. If anyone would like me to open on a Saturday or Sunday or Bank Holiday please do call me on 07546 109072 and I will try to help. I am also able to offer shop sales on Thursday evenings 7-7.30pm prior to the Thursday Our Space evening workshops. And most things in the shop are also available online on the website www.crystalspace.co.uk

I can also open the shop for groups to visit and also make use of the mezzanine for refreshments. 
The Mezzanine  space can also be hired for groups or workshops 
when the shop is closed except for Tuesday/Wednesday/Thursday nights. 


Through April my opening times are a little different due to family holidays.

April 3rd, 4th and 5th open 10-3 and then closed til Thursday 11th April when my opening times return to 9.30-3.45.

The shop range is as follows: A wide range of healing tumblestones and raw crystals, crystal carvings and locally crafted crystal jewellery. Essential oils and incense including tree resins. I have an ongoing sale on resin currently selling 40g bags for just 90p until they are all gone. Soon I will be stocking Alchemy Incense’s marvellous and uplifting range of boxed incense. I also sell charcoal and brass resin burners as well as oil burners and incense holders. I also sell tea-lights and dinner candles.I have been selling a range of shamanic items including drums, rattles, bells, abalone shells, sage spirit sticks and loose sage. I have number of Tibetan items such a singing bowls,Tinsa cymbals and prayer flags and also a range of wooden, glass and resin Buddha’s and Dragons including amazing large Buddha masks from Bali. For Divination there are runes and tarot cards and crystal balls. Obsidian mirrors and spheres.I also stock cards and gift wrap. I have a small collection of relaxation/meditation CD’s including the wonderful licence free music from I-Chill. At just £15 for an hour long CD these are excellent value for therapists and healers who want to play relaxing, calming or uplifting music without the very expensive public performance licence fees required for copyright music.

I have some beautiful locally hand crafted items.I stock Pendle Pottery witches and cats by Lizzie Botham, Catherine Ding’s felt bowls and bags and Becky Moore’s lovely unique handbags which are exquisitely made with silk lining and spiral designs. Marion’s childrens woolly hats are a perfect gift this time of year. (Speaking of hats I still have a few festival hats left, and also Scarves from Namaste). I also have a various fair trade mosaic bowls and mirrors, wind chimes, wall hangings cushions and throws from Namaste and Siesta Crafts.
Angel Wings Art is exhibiting her wonderful angel art at the shop which also sells online via https://www.facebook.com/Angelwingsart on Facebook and also the main website http://www.angelwingsart.co.uk/
I am having a permanent sale on handmade soaps to make way for new stock.

Upstairs in the mezzanine
Its been very hard going for us all with all the snow and ice these past few months but the workshops that have run at Crystal Space have been well attended. We had a beautiful Imbolc ceremony at the end of January to celebrate the return of the light and with lighter mornings and evenings it does feel like spring is just around the corner.
We have had a Tarot workshop at the end of January with Lily Oak which was very popular. Thank you to all of you who supported this workshop as Lily came all the way down from Keilder (having had to cancel the original date due to the snow). Lily has promised to return to do a part 2 Minor Arcana session.
For those of you interested in tarot cards we held a mini workshop on tarot spreads led by Michael on the first Thursday in March as part of the Our Space Programme.
Reiki Seichem level 1 with Maggie Pashley was held a few weekends ago and was well attended. Maggie is running a Level 2 Reiki/Seichem in April. You can contact her on 07939118136 or visit: www.changeforlife.co.uk.

Reiki Seichem Level Initiation. Sunday 21st April with Maggie Pashley, Develop your Reiki and Seichem further by learning empowering symbols
to amplify the energy channelled. Practice ways of offering distance healing. Cost: £120 (Reiki 2 only) £150 Seichem 2, Seichem 2 for those already Reiki 2-attuned £40

The following is taken from Maggies website.
Reiki & Seichem workshops
Reiki is a form of hands-on healing which channels universal life force energy for health and well-being. This is something that has always been available but it was developed into the accessible form of Reiki (pronounced ray-kee) by a Japanese man called Dr Usui in the early 1900's. Since then it has spread throughout the world and today there are many Reiki healers throughout the world.
I was originally trained in Usui Reiki and then in the late 90's after practising Reiki for a few years cam across Seichem, a form of energy healing thought to originate in Egypt but re-introduced by an American woman called Kathleen Milner. According to Kathleen Milner's guidance, Reiki works primarily with Earth Energy while Seichem includes the Earth Energy of Reiki but also is part of a wider system which also includes the elements of Air, Fire and Water. I could certainly feel a difference and enjoyed working with Seichem and so chose to train to teach it to others. I am a Reiki and Seichem Teaching Master and member of RASA, the Reiki and Seichem Association.

I teach the following levels of training in Reiki and Seichem:

Reiki and Seichem Level 1
Through a transfer of energy called an attunement you are initiated into the first level of this healing system. The workshop includes:

  • initiation into Reiki or Seichem Level 1
  • guidance on how to use this energy for self-healing
  • guidance on how to use this energy on other people and on animals
  • practise sessions
  • ways of using Reiki and Seichem for self-development
I teach Reiki and Seichem in the same class as the basics of using these energies for healing are broadly similar. The attunement differs as extra energies are passed on in the Seichem attunement.
You may choose to either begin with Reiki or Seichem. Reiki is a gentler energy and Seichem is in my opinion fuller and more versatile. The choice is yours -whether you want to start gently and build up or whether you know you are ready to go straight to Seichem. If you do choose to begin with Reiki you can have the Seichem attunement at a later date and simply pay an additional fee. If in doubt as to which of these is right for you, ask me.

Reiki and Seichem 2
In this workshop you can build on the foundations of Level 1 and receive:
  • attunement into Reiki or Seichem 2
  • instruction on how to use symbols for deeper healings and healing practice with these symbols
  • guidelines and practice on doing distant healing.
Reiki and Seichem 3 and Teaching Master
Please ask me for details.
Do you really need Reiki in order to be a healer ?

No. of course you don't. I know some really good healers who are not Reiki-trained. I believe we all have healing abilities and these can be developed in different ways. However, I believe that for many people a Reiki attunement can be a very easy way of allowing people to open to those natural abilities and provide a framework to develop them.
Please feel free to contact me via e-mail or phone me on 01535 957493 or 07939118136 to discuss how learning Reiki and Seichem could benefit you.

Also in early March  was this wonderful new workshop.
Metamorphic Technique with Maggie Pashley
Spread your wings with Metamorphic Technique - the easy way to change limiting patterns and become the person you were born to be.

Metamorphic Technique involves a gentle touch on the feet, hands and head, on points representative of conception, our time in the womb and birth. The touch is feather-like and non-directive. It is not seeking to change the receiver or envisage an outcome. The practitioner is simply acting as a catalyst, a space in which old patterns can be loosened and transformation can occur.
My workshops are small, interactive and practical. You will learn how to offer Metamorphic Technique sessions and the importance of maintaining an open, detached attitude while working. You'll learn the deep principles of which the technique is based. And you'll learn how the experiences we have during our time in the womb and at our birth influence the way we respond to life, interact in relationships and manage big transitions such as a new environment, pregnancy, birth, change of job, confusion about we are and so on.

People who choose to do this workshop tend to include those interested in self-development, healing and consciousness., people wanting to offer this to family members, practitioners wanting to offer this to clients ,pregnant women and those with young children and people open to a new way of dealing with life's challenges.
This is a 2 day workshop, Saturday and Sunday 10am- 4pm. Cost: £120 or £80 for those repeating the workshop.
For more info: contact Maggie on 07938118136, email: maggiepashley@gmail.com or book on-line at her Metamorphic Technique website: www.metamorphicwings.com And if you can't make the workshop you can always come and have a personal session with her at Crystal Space.

You can find information about these and many other therapies offered by Maggie Pashley on her website www.changeforlife.co.uk

Thank you Maggie!

The Northern Healing Arts Project.
This is a new venture I am organising and it has a page on facebook – https://www.facebook.com/pages/Northern-Healing-Arts-Project/568195033210689

Its all about a talented group of healers, readers, crafters and artists who as a group travel about the north of England mostly outside the festival season i.e Sept to May (with the exception of some one day outdoor events) and offer fairs and eventually a festival. We use locations in areas rotating around the mid north e.g Pendle villages/ Yorkshire dales. We want to offer a unique type of fair with traditional hand made arts and crafts with artisans from the north of England and also stalls selling items associated with health and healing and earth based spirituality including crystals. oils incense and magical and shamanic tools and drums, singing bowls etc. We will also be offering healing sessions and workshops wherever possible. I will post more details about venues/dates in future newsletters.

Munay-Ki with Ally Wilkin and other initiates.

I am really pleased to be able to invite you to receive Initiation into the Nine Rites of Munay Ki. These energetic transmissions bring in great healing and clarity as well as offering very practical tools to help you in the challenges of everyday life, enabling you to move beyond limiting scripts.

Myself and other initiates have found receiving the energies of Munay-Ki shamanism to be a life-changing experience, which does help us move positively into being the people we were born to be.. The key to its great power is that you actually receive its energies into your energy body or Luminous energy field (also referred to as your aura). You also receive connection to great lineages of Healers, Earthkeepers and other great beings.

The archetypes of Munay-Ki that are placed in your energy body help us to shed destructive old patterns, and arise in light and power. These archetypes are Serpent who sheds his skin, Jaguar who defends your medicine space, Humming Bird who can undertake great journeys and drink deeply from the nectar of life and Eagle with whom you can see the great picture and fly wing to wing with Great Spirit, Huascar, the Guardian of your Underworld, Quetzalcoatl who empowers you to organise your day to day life according to your true destiny and calling, and Pachakuti who commands and directs your life.

We are now offering the following three great opportunities to receive these initiations at Crystal Space, Silsden.

Five Tuesday evenings at 7.30pm from 14th May 2013 With Michael Conneely and Maggie Pashley (up to 8 places available).

Five Tuesday evenings at 7.30pm from June 18th 2013-03-21 with Ally Wilkin (up to 8 places available.

Two Saturdays, 1st and 29th June, 10am to 4pm (both days need to be attended to receive all nine rites).

And for those living long distance in UK, or abroad, who have expressed a desire to receive the Rites, we can offer you a three day initiation around either one of these two Saturdays, and recommend accommodation locally, for example in Haworth, home of the Bronte novelists, or Skipton, Gateway to the stunningly lovely Yorkshire Dales.

‘Crystal Space….. a place dedicated to spiritual healing, magic and mysticism.

 
Happy new year 2013 everyone.  Well…2013…..I have still not yet got used to the idea of this new year and I think it may be because 2012 was such a special year and I have found it hard to let go of it. 2012 was an amazing year for me personally and for the shop. There have been many changes and developments. My personal highlight of the last twelve months was receiving ‘The Nine Rites of the Munay-Ki’ . I will say more about this at the end of the newsletter.  This newsletter is the first one so maybe slightly longer than future postings. 

The shop celebrated its first birthday last October and has started to draw customers from further afield. I am very pleased to see on a google search, using Keighley and Crystals as search words, the Crystal Space website comes up on the first page. I now have a wonderful loyal customer base and word of mouth seems to be by far the best form of advertising. I have tried various combinations of opening hours and Monday and Tuesday are very quiet days in Silsden so they remain my closing days along with Sundays. I am opening 9.30-3.30 Wednesday to Friday and 12 til 2pm on Saturdays. If anyone would like me to stay open a little later on a Saturday or even open earlier please do call me on 07546 109072 and I will try to help. I am also able to offer shop sales on Thursday evenings 7-7.30pm prior to the Thursday Our Space evening workshops.
The shop range is as follows:  A wide range of healing tumblestones and raw crystals, crystal carvings and locally crafted crystal jewellery. Essential oils and incense including tree resins. I have an ongoing sale on resin currently selling 40g bags for just 90p until they are all gone. Soon I will be stocking Alchemy Incense’s marvellous and uplifting range of boxed incense. I also sell charcoal and brass resin burners as well as oil burners and incense holders including the very popular Smoking Dragon Burners which at £16.25 must be the cheapest available. I also sell tea-lights and dinner candles. I have been selling a range of shamanic items including drums, rattles, bells, abalone shells, sage spirit sticks and loose sage. I have number of Tibetan items such a singing bowls, Tinsa cymbals and prayer flags and also a range of wooden, glass and resin Buddha’s and Dragons including amazing large Buddha masks from Bali. For Divination there are runes and tarot cards and crystal balls. Obsidian mirrors and spheres. I also stock cards and gift wrap.  I have a small collection of relaxation/meditation CD’s including the wonderful licence free music from I-Chill. AT just £15 for an hour long CD these are excellent value for therapists and healers who want to play relaxing, calming or uplifting music without the very expensive public performance licence fees required for copyright music.
I have some beautiful locally hand crafted items. I stock Pendle Pottery witches and cats by Lizzie Botham, Catherine Ding’s felt bowls and bags and Becky Moore’s lovely unique handbags which are exquisitely made  with silk lining and spiral designs. Marion’s childrens woolly hats are a perfect gift this time of year. (Speaking of hats I still have a few festival hats left, and also Scarves from Namaste).

I am having a permanent sale on handmade soaps to make way for new stock. The shop is currently having a general sale so I can bring in some new stock across all lines.  I have 50% off all Buddhist items and incense holders and 25% of crystals and textiles. I have some lovely large Namaste floor cushions and celtic throws in the sale. Also 20% off incense and oils.  Sale ends January 31st

New members are always welcome and so if you have never been to an Our Space night you are cordially invited!
Last November we reviewed the year and looked at what we would like to repeat and also what new workshops people would enjoy. This review was very well attended and after a good deal of discussion the group made a number of suggestions which have now been put into place.

My Journey into the Munay-Ki
Last June 2012 I was very fortunate to have the opportunity to receive the nine rites of the Munay-Ki. I did not know what to expect and having read some books by Alberto Villoldo and also watched some u-tube videos I embarked on the weekend course. I realised by the end of the very intense two days that my life had changed forever and I was full of an enthusiam for the future. Not only did I feel personally empowered and healed, I also had a sense of hope and purpose for the world and universe beyond. An indescribable peace and knowing that has filled me with Inspiration to pass the rites onto others.

The following is an extract from writings of the Four Winds Society, founded by Alberto Villoldo who has brought the Munay-Ki to the West…..


Munay-Ki comes from the Quechua word that means 'I love you' and is also taken to mean 'Be as Thou Art'. In this current context it refers to the nine rites of initiation to becoming a person of wisdom and power. Handed down from generation to generation they exist within all Shamanic traditions, while deriving a form and style of expression unique to each culture. The Munay-Ki offered here are derived from the great initiations of the Hindus Valley brought by the Laika, a group of courageous medicine men and women, across the Bering Straits from Siberia to the Americas during the glacial period some 30,000 years ago. Ordinary men and women, who acquire uncommon grace and ability through prayer, study of the wisdom teachings and discipline, the Laika have kept the teachings safe until the moment came for their release to many more than their small group. They have faithfully accepted their guardianship for millennia, believing people would come to this initiation when they were ready and called to do so. Munay-Ki is the key to taking a quantum leap in species evolution. It is a group of energetic transmissions that download directly into the Luminous Energy Field, which constitutes each individual at an energetic level, the codes for transformational evolution. These codes are downloaded into the chakra system, a group of seven major energy centres lodged within the body and attached to the spine. This spinal connection facilitates the information's transmission to the neuro-physiology and brain of each recipient, offering them the potential to complete within one lifetime a process of evolution that would otherwise take many, many generations. Alberto Villoldo PhD is a psychologist and medical anthropologist who has worked closely with the Laika for a quarter of a century. As such he was privy to the knowledge that the final rite, previously only gifted to a few humans over the millennia, had been brought forth by the Laika in the summer of 2006 as a transmission now available to be gifted directly between humans. He has distilled the teachings and processes involved in the transmission of the nine rites that make up Munay-Ki into an easily understood and usable format to allow for its further dissemination out into the world. The Four Winds Society, which he founded to train western Shaman, has begun the process by offering Munay-Ki across North America and Europe since that time. The intention is that those who accept the gift of Munay-Ki will go on to initiate more of our fellow men and women into these rites. Rites, which form a significant step towards the creation of the next stage in the evolution not merely of humankind but of our home planet the Earth. The principles of daily living incumbent upon all who take this offered opportunity of Munay-Ki are: NON-VIOLENCE, TRUTHFULNESS, INTEGRITY, MODERATION and GENEROSITY. These principles lay the foundation for the coming of a New World of harmony, love and peace to replace our current World of disharmony, fear and conflict, and are the underlying reason why Munay-Ki has become universally available now. We are coming to the end of an evolutionary era that has lasted 65 million years. Everything that constitutes the World in which we live is gearing up to switch into the new era, potentially during the period of rare planetary alignment due to take place in December 2012, predicted millennia ago by the mathematical genius of the Mayan peoples. This imminent opportunity is why Munay-Ki, in this form and in many parallel forms across the cultures, is here now. It is one of the means whereby humanity recognises its place as an integral part of the Universe and participates in that switch.
In my next newsletter Maggie Pashley will be talking about Reiki Seichem.
