April 2020
Happy April!
Greetings from a distance - at least 6 feet!

Being a high risk person, I'm writing this from a space that feels like it is getting smaller and smaller as time goes on. Remember, as humans, fear from powerlessness can mess with our normal thought patterns and reactions. However, if you take control and use this time at home, you may discover some of the hidden benefits that can be had in this situation. Work with me here and, let's review some things, so we can remind ourselves the treasures to be found in this period of change and isolation. We can call this our COVID-19 manifestation bucket list.

  1. Let's start with our body and health, since that's what this is all about. You actually have time to get outside and find the joy and benefits of nature again. Walk, run, skip, breath, get some Vitamin D, exercise and move your body. The benefits are too numerous to list. Its a great time to loose some weight and eat healthier now that you have time to cook. Please, if you do nothing else during this time, begin or maintain meditating. Even the western health community is now embracing meditation as a fundamental basic of life everyone can benefit from.
  2. Read a book! Reading puts your brain in a alpha mode which is the same zone your brain is in when meditating and talking with spirit guides. Tap into your creative side and explore options that you have never had time for, and most importantly, remember worrying does no good. It doesn't change things and creates negative energy in your attitude, health and aura.
  3. How about those home projects and spring cleaning! They might not be the most fun, but doing chores literally gives you control over your environment. While you have the time at home, how about switching your closet from winter to summer clothes and ditching stuff that hasn't seen the light of day for years. Rearrange the furniture...you might find some money and besides change is always good for us. Find and embrace your hidden home decorating talents and don't forget those outside landscape projects. Feel the earth, breath the fresh air then sit back and enjoy the accomplishment.
  4. Review your finances! Now's an excellent opportunity to get your receipts organized for your 2019 tax preparations. As we all think of ways to reduce expenses and earn some side money, maybe you can start creating that budget that's never been anywhere except in your head.
  5. Lets talk about family and friends. If you have kids, first of all my heart goes out to you. Remember kids hear basically everything, so try to keep it light and as fun as possible. Everything we've talked about so far can be healthy outlets for the whole family, and your kids might even come up with some great projects of their own so remember to be supportive!
  6. Live Love! In these times, we may find ourselves in a psychological dichotomy with those closest to us. No question we love them, but 24/7 can put a strain on any relationship, even with ourselves. So, no guilt for those mental conversations and thoughts that you find yourself going through. Just breathe, take some time & space to yourself, and reflect on the love that you have. Reach out to a distant loved one via phone or video chat and catch up that way!
  7. Get stoned! Now would also be a perfect time to revisit all of your stones and give them a good spring cleaning outside and a little extra lovin'. You can spread your crystals out and create a grid to set an intention or manifest a change in your life, or take inventory and make a wish list of crystals to add to your collection. Wouldn't be a bad idea to put some Smokey Quartz in your pocket and move that Citrine piece front and center for a while.

Whether you develop an exercise program, a learning program, or pick up a hobby, just be sure to find something that brings you joy. When isolation is over, we'll look back and wonder what did I do with that time. We'll be asking each other what did you do! Hopefully in the next month (or two) you'll look back and be able to list accomplishments and have appreciation for new changes in your life. So see, there is a light at the end of this tunnel in that you've got an excellent opportunity now to readjust yourself and get rid of those bad habits and embrace the new you!

I do want to thank all our loyal and faithful customers who have reached out to help and offer such kind words of encouragement. My family includes everyone at Nature's Treasures and we're trying to take care of everyone as best we can. The way you can help us most is by going to our online store and find that something that is calling you. If you don't see it online, then email us to get in touch with your personal online shopper to go out into the store and find what you are looking for.
HAPPY EASTER EVERYONE! Hope your Easter is filled with blessings and lots of chocolate bunnies. Don't forget to count the eggs before hiding them! And remember to continue "social distancing" so we can all get back to normal sooner than later.

The Treasure Tome: A Trove of Knowledge
Shungite: The Miracle Stone

Shungite  has had a lot of interest in the past several years, and for good reason! Shungite is the 2 billion year old mineral that is hailed as a modern “Miracle Stone” of the 21st century. Shungite derives its name from the Karelian village of Shun'ga where it was first discovered.

Shungite rates 3.5 on the Mohs hardness scale and is composed mainly of carbon. But, according to  Judy Hall  in  Crystal Bible 3 , “Shungite contains virtually all the minerals in the periodic table.” Further, she states “it may have been instrumental in creating life on earth.”
