Hello WordPress buddies! I haven’t been having much of any words coming to my mind lately for posts, so instead of pushing things out that aren’t honest I have just been waiting patiently. In the patient waiting, I have been following the flow of what has been coming to me. I had the blessed opportunity to see the solar eclipse in Grand Teton National Park in Wyoming with a couple friends this past week. It has made it in my list of “Top 5 Most Amazing Life Experiences” without a doubt. Something woke up within my mind, body, and soul after viewing it…it charged me up in a great way. The energy is pushing me forwards with working on a project that a friend and I started a few months ago.

The project is called Oasis Meditation and it was born in a small coffee shop in Seattle, WA with a friend who is a fellow blogger and meditator. We met up at the small coffee shop back in early June and both shared our vision of how we would like to serve the outer world with our inner vision. With our mutual love of meditation and mindfulness, we decided to start up a small shop on a website (it’s still in the works) selling homemade meditation cushions, homemade candles, and essential oils. We are going to share a portion of the proceeds that we make with organizations that help combat mental health illness in minority and low-income communities. A portion of the proceeds will also go towards domestic violence support groups and organizations.
There has been a mixture of excitement, fear, and peacefulness all wrapped into one with starting this project. Essentially it is a small business that we are creating and seeing that I went to school for medical assisting and medical assisting only, I don’t know much of anything when it comes to business. However, I have been studying up a ton about it, there are so many resources now days. I also believe that the energy is so strong with the vision of how we want to help the outer world, that I have a strong belief that my friend and I can make this project a success.

I wanted to post about Oasis Meditation because I think it will be something that I will be mentioning a bunch in upcoming posts, so I wanted to keep my lovely followers (thanks so much for supporting this blog) in the know! I also wanted to mention a couple of the pages that my friend and I have created to get this project up and off the ground. One of them is an Instagram page where we will share the products that we will be selling (handmade meditation cushions/candles made by us and essential oils from Gail Thackray) and a Patreon page. Please click on the links below and support where-ever you are able, much appreciation and much love! 🙂
