The Rock Shop


Yes, I am Nan.  I still remember the first time I stepped into a crystal shop … an excitement that I cannot begin to describe.  All which has led me to this day, a rock shop that I can call my own.  Often I am asked, what is a rock shop?  Smiling I reply … we have jewelry made from precious stones; also amethyst, geodes, and rock slices.  Polished pocket crystals are high on my list.  They have healing energy that can go straight to your heart.  I get such pleasure in placing a crystal in the hand of someone who has had a stressful day.  Above all – to watch a child’s eyes as they choose a crystal from the wooden bowl.  There is a joyful wonder about these special gems.  Come and visit.  Let us introduce you to the fascinating world of crystals.


Crystals are more than just a pretty face.  We are attracted to their beauty, their colors, shine, and glitter.  Rocks are made of mineral matter pressing together: but crystals actually grow, cell by cell into perfectly formed structures.  Both are Mother Nature’s wonders.  Crystals; however are able to naturally amplify, clarify, and store energy.  They have been used for many years by scientists in radios, computers, etc., as natural energy conductors.  Crystals are able to resonate with different vibrations, hence can be used to bring energies back to balance, including energies of the human body.  For example: amethyst helps to balance stress and worry in the mind so is a good choice for relief of headaches, poor sleep, depression, fear, etc..

Cleaning Crystals of negative energy: Before using crystal it is important to cleanse them first as they have already been working to balance stress, emotions, unhealth, chaos etc from everywhere they have been.  Also depending upon how much they are used, it is important to cleanse them regularly depending on how much you use them or the circumstances you have used them.  Crystals have been known to crack or even shatter from being overloaded.  It is important to clean negativity and stress energy from them regularly in order to continue to receive their full healing benefits.  Cleansing methods can include:  soak them in sea salt and water over night, sit them in sunlight or moonlight, set them outside on the ground during a rain or thunderstorm, wash them under running water especially natural sources such as brook/river/ocean, and all smudging or energy clearing practices such as Reiki.  A great way to clear jewelry or smaller crystals is to set them on a crystal cluster, selenite crystal or near a rock salt lamp. Choose one of the above that feels right with you.  Then feel its purity, its message, its gift to help you on your life path.  Crystal Therapy: gifts from the earth to help us remember, discover, and be all we can be.  Enjoy!

Hey fellow Rockers!

Nan has now retired, she is now enjoying her time home with family and friends.   I have now taken over the shop duties and am grateful to have the opportunity to work with a group of volunteers who together with me, we keep Nan’s Shop growing and expanding.  Nan and I are happy  with our efforts,  that have led to this day of success, and a full shop packed full of earthy treasures that is now expanding into the kitchen sitting area.   It has been a time with my mother that I will never forget, as we kept each other going through the trials and errors of building a successful business: hugs joys and tears and a place that so benefits our community.  Keep updated with our monthly newsletters that list all the events and workshops also being offered.   Lots to see: shop and share. … as we spread the knowledge of crystal therapy, spiritual enlightenment, choices and opportunities.  Thank you first to my mother, thank you to my spiritual teachers and the opportunity to hold this place that is so dear to my heart.
