Mind, Body, Soul- Winter Solstice with Norma Clark of Forevrgoddess Boutique

A Witchy Approach For a Spiritual Llife, Magickal or Non

 

Hello, I’m Norma Clark from Forevrgoddess Boutique. This is my little article about finding Mind, Body, and Soul – during the Winter Solstice Season, using a witchy approach for spiritual life or a non magickal approach.

Winter solstice or the return of the sun, was truly a cause for celebration among our ancestors. Yule is called Winter Solstice Dec 21, Mother night. At Yule the Goddess Shows her Life-In-Death aspect. In this season she is the white Lady Queen of Cold darkness. This is her moment of giving birth to the child of promise who brings back the light and warmth of her kingdom.

Sometimes in this world we’re so busy ( school, work, family, etc). We forget to take a little bit of time for ourselves, self-care or personal time. We’re here to help you: ground, center, recharge, and refocus on good things in life, feel positive and healing energy.

 

Greet the Day

Each of us have different paths that keep us busy every day, we’re either rushing to school or work, getting kids up & ready for day. We might have a little bit of time before our day begins. Rise early and greet the sun, give thanks to solar Gods/Goddess for blessing a new day, even if you wake to Snow or Rain it’s the Goddesses time for rest to prepare earth for it’s next phase of the seasonal circle. Look for beauty in any weather. Begin your day as usual washing your face, brushing teeth or even taking a shower.

 

Start Your Day… Crystal or Gemstone Meditation

Get yourself a cup of coffee or tea and grab a crystal or gemstone of your choice. Try to sit by a window, look at the world around you, even if it’s your backyard. Feel the light fill the room. Put your coffee or tea down pick up & hold your gemstone or crystal of choice. Take 3 deep breathes in and out. Look at your stone or crystal, if there is sunlight let the sunlight shine on the stone; see the color highlights shown by the sun. Close your eyes while holding the stone, think of the healing properties of the stone (rose quartz: love, comfort. Smoky quartz: protection, grounding, dispels negativity. Selenite connects with angelic realm and relieves stress. Amethyst inner peace, serenity, etc… We provided the meanings of your stones with healing info.) Feel the loving energy come thru the stone and up your arm into your heart. See the positive change and blessings this stone has to offer. Try to focus on this energy for 10 minutes if possible. Even if you’re having a bad morning, or sleepless night before try to connect with the stone.

Take a few deep breathes again while focusing on the energy of the stone coming up your arm to your heart. You may feel warm and fuzzy or energized; take a moment to enjoy the feeling. Think about the things you must do today, don’t stress just see you doing them with positive love and light. See each task complete. Greet those you love or encounter with a smile and friendly “Hello”. Even if they don’t respond back smile knowing you’ve greet the day in a positive way. Slowly come back to your body, open your eyes and start your day.

If there is extra time, light some favorite incense, say a morning prayer to your patron Gods and Goddesses. If you have a sunny day go to somewhere in your yard where you won’t be disturb for 10-15 minutes and feel the sun. If it’s a cold day, dress warmly if you have snow, step into the snow, feel and hear the crunch and coldness around your toes. Bend down if standing and rub the snow with your hands try to reconnect with the Earth Goddess.

If you’re stressed, see yourself like a tree with roots even through the deep snow, imagine going down to sleeping grass and finally dirt where mother earth is. Push down all the negative energy, thoughts, anger, frustrations into ground. Once done feel the loving soothing energy come up from below, raise your hands above to the sun and sky welcome positive sun rays and warmth into your body grounding, recharging, refocus your mind set it to positive thoughts. If you’re still holding your stone, enjoy the healing energy. Come back into your body and listen to birds chirping or sounds of the day beginning. Go inside and begin your day. Consider doing yoga and basic stretches.

 

Dressing For the Day

As you get dressed think to wear the best colors for the day that help color magick and energy:

Monday: White

Tuesday: Red

Wednesday: Purple

Thursday: Blue

Friday: Green

Saturday: Black

Sunday: Yellow.

Though don’t be stuck with the list provided. There are many colors of the rainbow to wear and enchant the color of your clothing. ( Llewellyn.com & The Witches Date book or Calendar always has each day of the week for the whole year with info and what color to wear.) There is much to learn about color magick and how to apply it to your life and magickal side. If you have gemstones pendants wear them to compliment the outfit or for specific needs at the moment or for extra protection from city life or daily errands you might encounter.

 

Vitamins … Skin Care

Consider taking a multi vitamin, and herbal supplements. If you are sluggish in the morning from restlessness or medicine, consider looking into taking ginseng. There are few that have various ginsengs combined that can be beneficial to body and mind. One a day if possible helps energy and eventually, after a long day, helps you sleep. Gingko biloba, CQ 10  and Glucosamine with MsM are known for good overall health and rejuvenation of body and mind. One of each vitamin a day & you may see and feel changes. For a more youthful appearance consider taking collagen herbal supplements. They help fill fine lines and wrinkles. I use Reserveage Collagen replenish with Hyaluronic acid and vitamin C. Read their reviews. I love my vitamins and have been using them for several months. It does turn back the clock a bit. Feel free to shop around and find what fits your budget sometimes pharmacy and supermarket vitamins and herbal supplements are on sale so pick up a few on sale. Stock up. I do all the time. LOL. Take a look on amazon.com, also.

Consider using natural products for your face like: face wash, facial lotions etc… I use Andalou naturals, I can find in health food store on sale or amazon.com. They have fruit & stem cells science products. I use sensitive skin, not harsh, not heavy. I love all their products. I found their trail size to be a great price and great as starter kits.

 

Eating

Find something filling and wholesome. Eat fruit if possible or have a protein bar. Be sure to have a well balanced breakfast. As you are about to take a nibble thank the Goddess or Gods for this meal, it doesn’t hurt to give them an offering even if it’s just lighting a candle for a few minutes as you eat or light a stick of incense. As you eat, sit by a window, look up and the sky, see the clouds, sun, moon, stars, try to find 5 things you’re grateful for and thank the Goddesses or Gods with what they have shown or provided you with, even if it’s a job, a warm bed, food on table, bills paid.

 

Going Out Into the World

As you go outside to work, errands, school, etc…take a moment to ground and center again, focus and visualize blue light, a shield, protecting you as you go into the world. To keep negative energy, negative feelings, and negative people away. Try to think of having a wonderful day. There are many blessings to see happening all around us. Be grateful for simple things. Say thank you if someone holds the door for you, or gives you a seat on bus or subway.

 

Other Self Care Thoughts & Ideas

If possible go for 20-30 min walk around the block or park for 3 days a week. It’s a great way to help get in shape, get your heart pumping, and gives you endorphins to make you feel good.

Create a blessing journal to write your thoughts in and the things you are grateful that the goddess / Gods have blessed you with like; your home, family and life. Even if they seems little or silly it’s okay. If you do it often you can look differently at a rainy or sad day. It might even calm your moods by looking at the brighter side of life.

Go get a massage. Look for local massage therapy school that might offer discounts for massages given by students.

Sit in the Sun for 20 mins. Wear sunscreen if needed, especially in the winter the sun reflects off the snow you still get sunburned as my husband does. Feel the warmth of the sun. Recharge, feel all the solar power banishing the negative, frustration, & sad thoughts. Think on the bright side of life.

Take a moment to reconnect, go to a safe place, park, woods, sea shore, stream, etc… Take caution. Be safe, sometimes water currents can be high or frozen on river banks, don’t go out on top of frozen lakes for safety reasons. You can fall in. If you are in a warmer climate area, take your shoes off feel the grass, dirt, sand beneath your feet. Feel the wind in your hair, close your eye hear the calls of natures. Even if you’re in a big city, find a safe spot and reconnect. Meditate even if it’s 10 minutes, breathe in love, harmony, light, exhale negative emotions, sadness, frustration. Ask the Goddess for guidance, tell her what you need help with. Like Gods, the Goddess, is the very essence of everything. She is part of us all, she has so many names. Look up a specific goddess you’ve chosen, look closely to your type of belief (Celtic, Hindu, European, African, Asian, there no wrong or right goddess for you.)

Look at our boutique: find a new candle, incense or smudge blend to set the mood and feel the positive energy about you. Look at any of your gemstones, be inspired to learn more about them and their healing energy. Here’s a link to my boutique.

Look for any books by Judy Hall she write “crystal bible” and more books.

Buy a water bottle with a fruit strainer so you can add chopped fruit inside and enjoy them together. The perfect detox and fresh new approach to drinking water.

Go to Yuletide Craft Faires, look fun home décor or a sweet treat to bring home that is available to sample for the season.

Look to Pinterest. Consider trying a dinner recipe. There are so many to choose from. Consider a new dessert to enjoy with family and friends. Oreo poke with vanilla ice cream is my favorite.

Light a candle or a stick of incense. Say a prayer to your patron Gods or Goddesses. Talk to them they do listen, and may guide you to a higher purpose. Talk to elementals & Faeries. I used both of the Brian Froud faery oracle cards. I love the detailed art work and after using them for a while I didn’t feel alone. When I do a reading to see what lessons I need to learn or just for some fun, my cards come to life, I feel faery presences within my living room and home. You might hear: giggles, twinkling of bells, feel little breezes within your home (movement of plants leaves or your hair when no window is open), watch your pets they will clue you in if something is in your home with you. Remember try not to have a lot of iron within their sights some are offended, always thank them and give an offering for their knowledge and presence.

Try to be Kind to yourself, as well as others. What you do or send out will come back 3x, try to remember that. Find the positive side of things.

Take walks with winter changing in your wooded area feel the cool crisp air. Collect fallen branches of spruce or pine and make a wreath or a beautiful door hanging, Altar piece, or decorate somewhere within the home.

Make Air Dry Clay Ornaments. Use rubber stamps, metal charms, or cookie cutters and stamp out shapes to design then place them on your altar to dry. Write with colored marker or paint a design or in one word what your thankful for. Poke a hole through it, tie a string and hang it where you can see it everyday. As you paint and create the ornament consider working a magick charm into it. Paint on dry clay or carve into the clay before it dries.

Create memories with family and friends and bake Winter/ Yule sugar cookies. Talk about what you are grateful for or just spend time with them. Have a Cookie decorating party! (Our Sabbat Yuletide and any other Wiccan sabbats cookie cutter and recipe box set is available check the boutique Yuletide ritual blessings)

Reflect during this time of year what Winter Solstice/Yule and Holiday season means to you, finding balance within one’s life (work, family, school, children, etc.) and what goals you want to set for this month December and continue on New year and January – go to Sleigh riding in snow, drink Spiced Hot coco – I like Mexican Aztec hot coco just add a half teaspoon or less of Cayenne pepper powder to pot of Hot coco.

Be with friends and family, share sweet goodies, Collect Apples or Oranges. Do some Yuletide crafts with Family and Friends. Look on Pinterest.com for ideas. Go to Yuletide Festivals. Enjoy the fruits, nuts, and favorite foods we enjoy this time of year. Did someone say “peppermint” Nothing to big, just Go, enjoy the Beauty of Winter!

Celebrating Autumn with Norma Clark of Forevrgoddess Boutique

September, 2018

 

Autumn Smudge Bundle with Gemstones

Hello, I’m Norma with Forevrgoddess Boutique, I wanted to share some info on Smudging herbs, gemstones and smudge rituals.  I don’t know about you, but the first day of September feels magickal, with apples and pumpkins abundantly everywhere.  I think it’s the perfect time to do an Autumn ritual smudging to cleanse home, sacred space or people, to remove negative or stale energy, banish and release emotions, illness, and other energy needing to be removed from home or person, to prepare for the coming of the Autumn Equinox & Samhain. You might have seen a few smudging herb bundles in new age stores, witch shops or online, there are many to choose from.

Smudging has been done in ancient cultures to Native American, in Spanish countries like Mexico, through Central and South America. Some of these herbs are used in smudging rituals by Shamans.  Some of these herbs can also be used in blessings, after ritual cleansings of homes or people. You can perform a blessing within a home  to invite harmony, love, laughter, tranquility, happiness and prosperity, or what ever is needed at the moment. For personal blessings you can do any of these ideas as well.

You can typically find in stores or online: White sage,  Juniper, cedar, Yerba Santa and Palo Santo. Any of these bundles of herbs can be helpful. Combining them with gemstones and crystals is an additional bonus and can help give healing/loving energy to aid with manifesting the properties you need most. I’m going to talk about a few of my  small smudge sets from Forevrgoddess Boutique, what they can do to help cleanse, rebalance and refocus energy to a positive and harmonious environment or how they can be used for personal blessings.

 

Small Autumn Smudge Blend

Here we have a beautiful mixture of Mexican cinnamon, Cloves, Cedar, Rose, Rosemary and White Sage. Very aromatic smell. Here’s a information on a few herbs we use for our Autumn blend.

White Sage: Can be prefect for magickal workings – protection, banishing/ releasing, seek wisdom through meditations, helps with grief, good health, healing, longevity, and psychic awareness.

Red Roses: Love, respect, beauty, courage, passion, romantic love, blessings, attract, banish, consecrate/bless, devotion, happiness, harmony.

Palo Santo (or Holy wood): from Ecuador forests, Palo Santo – Shaman have used it to clear energy, and positive energy. To reestablish peace, balance enhance focus to meditation, heals people physical and spiritual level.

Cedar: Calming, comforting, purify, protection, healing, harmony, prosperity, abundance, cleansing, helps focus on goals and meditation.

Mexican Cinnamon: Brought from Mexico to USA. – actions, attraction, inner balance, dream work, harmony, healing, attract luck, peace, passion, protection, wishes, consecrate/blessings.

Our Small Smudge Set is portable, you can do a quick smudge ritual anywhere. The Small Smudge Set is in a little tin box (we’ll provide ritual at bottom of this article). You can either burn them together or separately.  If you decide you want it to be stronger then make a bigger flame.  You can  always break the smudge blend into little burnable pieces and use a small abalone shell to burn it in. (We carry various abalone shell in boutique in 2 sizes.) If you wish to get a little smell burn small bit of each, cinnamon, cloves, rose, and rosemary with a bit of sage. The choice is yours.

 

Autumn Gemstones

We selected these from our Wiccan Magickal Sabbat Mabon and Samhain box sets.  With autumn equinox coming soon, seasons are changing for fall. It’s the time of balance between day and night, before night takes over and brings winter.

Here are the Stones for Autumn:

Citrine: Stone of happiness, positive energy and thought mental clarity, abundance, healing, uplifting.

Carnelian: Motivation, calm emotions, banishes negative emotions, replaces with love.

Smoky Quartz: Dispel negative energy, protection, grounding, transformation, brings calm.

Tiger eye: Stone of wealth, protection, self-confidence, balance, grounding.

When charging or programming your gemstone, keep in mind the goal or desire you wish to bring into your life. Help manifest this desire to life, say a prayer to your deity, angels, or elemental, ask for their support to bless this new path you wish to journey on. Keep them in your pocket, purse or coin purse as a reminder of what healing qualities you wish to be blessed with at the moment.

 

Autumn Smudge House Blessings Set

House Blessings Manifest Kit

Brightest Blessings, I’m so happy you decided to change a new part in your life, for the coming of Autumn and all her glory. This kit is designed to help you focus you and your home or sacred space to help “manifest” a new beginning and bring in the desires in your life..

How to Set up your Stones..

You will noticed you have 6 gemstones and an Autumn Smudge blend. The Autumn Smudge blend is to cleanse the area and give it a fresh start with positive energy.

Gemstone Selenite: ( Don’t rinse in water or leave in sun) quickly unblocks stagnant energy and removes negative energy. It magnifies the energy of any other gemstone that’s placed upon it. Combine selenite with black tourmaline. It will protect home and clear any negative energy, and help in protection crystal grids. Expands awareness opens psychic abilities.  Brings mental clarity and deep peace. Helps with angelic guidance.

Gemstone: Iron Pyrite ( fools gold): recall beautiful memories, protective stone, attract wealth and prosperity, energy shielding stone, blocks out negative energy, positive stone. Relieves anxiety frustration and boosts self-worth. Great for memory, this stone helps when depressed or deep despair, luck, money, protection, strength, willpower.

Gemstone: Pink Calcite: balance emotions, calming, grounding, spiritual growth, love, Healing, self work, well-being.

Gemstone: Carnelian: career success, grounding, motivation, personal power, helps with creativity, good health, protection, stop – negative energy, stimulates the conscious mind, helps you focus on the present and current needs, helps over come difficult times, manifesting energy to have your desire come to life.

Gemstone: Amethyst: all healing (mind, body, spirit) inner peace, calming one’s mind, a sense of spiritual insight when in a deepen stage of meditations, protective stone, esp, psychic attacks, helps with grief or loss, releases tension, helps over come bad habits tendencies, and calm anxiety attacks.

 

Cleansing Stones

Cleanse each gemstone with smudging blend burning in shell, to ensure it’s a positive energy to help with your goal you wish to create. It’s to ensure the gemstones, which have passed through so many hands, to get to you at home, are cleaned of other’s energies that might not fit in. Hold stone in hand take shell and pass it over and under stone to encase it with smoke.

 

Arranging Gemstones

Once stones are cleansed, set up an area where your stones will be seen through the day (altar, mantel, etc..) arrange stones however you wish. I suggest to put selenite in middle and surround other stones around the selenite so the selenite will energize the other stones. Like a mini crystal grid. If you have more stones, flowers, candles feel free to add them, to help further the goal you have in mind.

 

Autumn Equinox Celebration Ideas

  • Take walks with autumn changing in your wooded area, feel the cool crisp air.
  • Collect leaves with family, and place them on your altar.
  • Or … Write with black Permanent marker in one word what your thankful for on your leaf then poke a hole thru it, tie a string and hang it where you can see it everyday.
  • Create memories with family and friends and bake autumn sugar cookies talk about what you grateful for or just spend time with them. (our Sabbat Mabon and Samhain cookie cutter and recipe box set is available check the boutique.)
  • It’s time to reflect this time of year on what Autumn means to you, the balance of day and night, finding balance within one’s life ( work, family, school, children, etc) and what goals you want to set for this month September or October.
  • Go to pumpkin farm.

in a regular mailing box with no obvious Pagan symbology on it. So perfect for those in the broomcloset and doesn’t matter for those who are out!

 

 

Excited to see so many boxes, I dig right in.

 

OUR FIRST BOX IS…

Yule/ Winter Solstice Box #01 Cookie Cutter

 

 

Informative Papers

 

The thing that you notice straight off is the amount of papers the box comes with. So you are automatically drawn to them and want to dive in. What wonderful reading it is! There are pages of information and it is all great, helpful, and about the holiday. The correspondences for the stones are given, yay! By now, you know I love that. They give the history, lore, and correspondences for Yule. They suggest ideas on ways to celebrate Yule Magickally and Mundanely. Since this is a box for a Yule Cookie Cutter, there is a recipe for “roll out” cookies. There are some coloring pages included for fun. Then there are two pieces of lovely parchment paper included. These are Spell & Ritual Worksheets. Gorgeously set up. The spell sheet gives a quick guide on the bottom, for those new to the craft, or those who just need a quick reminder, on pointers to recall on writing a spell. The Ritual worksheet has a box to help you layout your altar. To help with your worksheets, there is a page on how to use any Magickal Workings Box by ForevrGoddess and when to craft a spell. The information on these sheets is informative and helpful. I thought, from the amount of papers, it may be overwhelming. I found the pages to be filled with fun things I can do, either by myself, or with my family.  They are anything but overwhelming! They really are a welcome treat. They add to my knowledge bank and fun.

 

Love Candle

 

 

The Candle is from Crystal Journey Candles. It is Reiki Energy Charged. Each candle comes with an affirmation. They say what fragrances were used in it. They give the name of the Candle. Instructions on how to charge your candle are provided. Precautions on candle use are given. They even say to use the candles in love & light in which they were created in and they wish you luck on your journey toward the light. This candle is called Love. It is a beautiful shade of red. The scent is not overwhelming but light and pleasing.

 

Yule Herbs

 

These are a Magickal Incense Blend made by ForevrGoddess Boutique. It’s their own blend of herbs and spices and it smells wonderful. Just like Yule! A wonderful winter’s day! They send you a generous amount. It can be used in bonfires, rituals, & spells.

 

Yule Stones

 

 

Included are 5 stones: Rose Quartz, Crystal Quartz Point, Citrine, and Serpentine. They are nice sized, polished stones. All vibrant colors.

 

Cookie Cutter

 

 

The highlight, and probably the funnest part of the box, is the cookie cutter and making the cookies! And what fun it is!! You can use the recipe the box comes with, look one up on the internet, or use an old family recipe. The cookie cutter itself is an adorable snowflake shape. Good quality metal, not flimsy or thin. Fun to use with or without kids.

 

Our Second Box Up is…

Yule/ Winter Solstice Box #02 Yule Pendulum

 

 

Informative Papers

Once again I am impressed with the paperwork. I am really blown away. It comes with the correspondences for the stones. Your yule information is all there. Then there is a beautiful Pendulum worksheet on parchment paper that lays out what you need to chart out when working with your Pendulum. The page gives information on the bottom on how to craft a spell. Not only that but a Pendulum worksheet information guide page is given with ideas and instructions on how to use your pendulum and your pendulum worksheet. I think they got you covered!

Brigid Heart Charm by Deva Designs

 

 

Wonderful blessing/devotional coin. Back says, “Remember You are Blessed.” Something to help us through those tough moments in life. Coin is thick and has heft to it. Small enough to carry in pocket, wallet, purse. Nice to flip around in hand or rub as a reminder during those times we need confidence.

Gemstone Comfort Goddess

 

 

Honey Calcite Comfort Goddess by Deva Designs. The first thought to come to my mind was that it looks funny. It’s an odd shape. Like it’s trying to look like a Goddess. I picked it up and OMGODDESS does it feel great in your hand. In any position. It molds to the natural shapes of the curves of your hand. No matter what spot you hold it in, it just fits snugly. You forget you are holding it, it does not give you hand cramps. You can meditate with it or just hold it for a long time and just feel it’s positive energy. The energy pours off of this Goddess figure.

 

Heart Seed Paper & Note

 

 

The heart seed paper is a beautiful idea to write your intentions for the coming year & use as an offering when you plant it, as suggested. The note paper tells you what flowers may grow from the seeded paper. A beautiful gift for you and the Goddess.

 

Over All Impression…

From the first box I opened from ForevrGoddess I thought they were beautifully packaged, smelled wonderful, and looked so peaceful.

The information packets that came with each box excited me. So much content on a variety of topics all having to do with the subject of the box. They give all the correspondences for the crystals and information on everything in the box or the theme of the box, which I find important. I have learned so much new information, gained many new ideas, and had some great crafting/baking hours! 

Doing the activities in the boxes are a ton of fun. From using the Yule Pendulum, to baking cookies, working a spell with my new worksheets, to making a Brigid Crystal Grid, there is so much to do. The prices are perfect and fair for all you get, and shipping is free in the USA. Plus you get a free gift with each purchase.

The items are all made of good quality, whether they are handmade by the store owner or premade. 

ForevrGoddess boxes are definitely Worth the Witch!

 

So…Who is it behind the scenes at ForevrGoddess running the show? Her name is Norma G. Clark and she has taken time out of her busy schedule to have a chat with PaganPagesOrg.

 

PaganPagesOrg (PPO): Hello Norma G. Clark!

Norma G. Clark (NGC): Hello Jennifer thank you for this opportunity to share the word about ForevrGoddess.

 

PPO: Our Pleasure. What brought the idea of the boxes to you?

NGC: We create boxes to fit your needs at the moment or a special need for family or friends. I offer the opportunity for buyers to see what we have for them to purchase and ask questions. I don’t hide our items, we open our boutique with ideas we create in our personal home, most of them you see before you in our boxes, we stand by quality, beauty of our products, and a unique approach to the Wiccan and Pagan lifestyle. We want them to share a unique experience with us on their spiritual journey.

 

PPO: How did you begin them?

NGC: Research.  I’ve gone through my references and resources and of course guidance by my Goddesses and Gods to see what there is need for. We’ve seen so many that cater only to certain things. We want to be the first to welcome all life stages happening; from Wiccan parents bringing their beautiful babies home from the hospital, to a young woman finding her 1st Goddess statue & finding magick within. We even deal with the negative by trying to help those find the light within.

 

PPO: How do you choose what goes inside your boxes?

NGC: I choose often for a specific need, or goal, or desire. We like being one of kind with our designs, though we’re delighted to get custom or specific requests, too. We are willing to create monthly boxes with theme ideas.

We carry our Magickal Sabbat Boxes, which are 3 – 4 types of boxes for celebrating 8 Wiccan Sabbats. They are designed as opportunities for you and your family to experience 1 of the Wiccan sacred Sabbat with us.

Comfort Goddess, for many women, at times, they need someone to guide them on their path. Though we vary from different parts of the world, and many have chosen so many different beliefs, we are all women created by the Goddess. I thought to create for someone who many women could lean on for support at any age. From a girl having her 1st blood moon, to a beautiful mother with 2 children snuggled next to her, to a wise grandmother accepting her role as crone.

Brigid Heart pocket charms boxes, these may be small, but think how a worry pocket charm can help guide you with these little words of wisdom, to lighten your day and inspire you to find the best in life.

 

PPO: Is yours a recurring monthly box?

NGC: Not now, we hope to soon. We would love to create a custom monthly box of any of our unique fun filled boxes. If anyone is interested in them, I’d tell them to send a private message to my boutique or Facebook. Our magickal Sabbat boxes,we were excited to just have created Yule & Imbolc. would make great recurring monthly boxes. Come explore our boutique for unique magickal boxes that can fit in your busy lifestyle to invite a little magick in your life.

 

PPO: Did you feel the pagan world was missing something to make you create your boxes?

NGC: Yes, there’s so much stuff out there for Wiccan and pagan beliefs. We wanted to stand out from the rest. Many of my clients are from various backgrounds of Wiccan and Pagan Beliefs. We cater to everyone from the novice to the more experienced. We love to show them they can create many blessings in life if they choose to look within themselves. We like a challenge to approach, and show our thoughts to help guide your journey to magick in life.

 

PPO: Do you sell other types of products?

NGC: Why yes we do, come celebrate Yule with us. While you do you will discover new spells, Goddesses, pendulums, unique bindrunes. We have various crystals and gemstones. Creative worksheets to teach and keep you organized. Fill your empty shelves with unique handmade gifts and jewelry. We have something to fit all your personal holiday and Ritual needs throughout the year.

 

PPO: On a personal note, what interests do you have?

NGC: Well that’s rather a long list..(laughing out loud.)

Well me and husband (Robert) have similar likes: rock hunting. We had a blast at Crystal Park, Montana harvesting our crystals for home and boutique this past summer. Creating jewelry, Wiccan handmade gifts, dragons, fairies, making pendulums and doing tarot readings. Reading books. Spending time with my 2 active children Gabriel, 6yrs and little Trinity, 1 1/2 yr old. We live your average family lifestyle, with a lil Magick and Goddess tucked inside.

 

PPO: Are you pagan? Can you tell us a little about yourself?

NGC: I’m Wiccan and so is my hubby. We’ve been practicing since we were teens. My style follows my spiritual path and what comes to mind. I live in a small rural town, Paris, Idaho with my husband, 2 hyper Children and a gang of critters. I now own my unique jewelry designing business for over 17yrs. I love to create new designs by looking at nature & cultural ideas for my Jewelry. Now I sell Metaphysical items. Unique 1 of kind designs.

 

PPO: Is there anything else you would like to share with our readers?

NGC: Why yes. Thank you for this opportunity to speak with us and learn about my little Metaphysical Boutique and spread the word about us. Blessings of love and light.

 

I’d like to thank Norma G. Clark for the wonderful interview and information on ForevrGoddess Boutique.

 

I’m going to add a personal note here… I can not help but feel like the Goddess Box was picked especially for me. I had no clue what boxes we were getting to review. I did not know we were getting this many or what we were getting. During the process of receiving items for the column you speak with business owners briefly.  Exchange some information that is needed such as addresses and interview questions.  During one of our Pre Boxes Being Sent conversations Norma from ForevrGoddess told me she just knows by speaking to people what they need… I believe she has a real talent. My free gifts, that are private, were picked for me, and they talked to me, directly. As this box did. I must admit, I am very impressed by ForevrGoddess Boutique, and especially by Norma.
