Gratitude and Gifts!

When I think about all the things I am grateful for, I realize how truly blessed I am.  Every day when I get up, I send a little message of thanks to the universe for making it possible for me to live in such a beautiful place on this earth.
I am so grateful for all the wonderful people who support Ruby Dragon by coming to our shop, buying our products, using our practitioners and sharing their joy, pain, sorrow and dreams with us.  I am so grateful that they consider Ruby Dragon a place of peace and safety and help.
I am grateful for the many talented and dedicated practitioners who have been and are a part of our team.  I have learned so much from each of them.  They are truly angels on earth.  I am especially grateful to Mary Hiestand, who has been a part of Ruby Dragon since day 1, Simone Laurent who is a wise and loving person and who is ALWAYS there to help and support, Sydney Rudy who is a beam of shining light and love and who ALWAYS is there when I need her for anything, Laurine Tonkin who has focused on finding ways to bring personal growth and beauty to everyone, Jim O'Conner who has taught all of us and is one of the brightest men I know, Jessica Kautz who brings in knowledge from the astral realm and a breath of fresh thinking, Ky Wood who brings more energy from the sea, and to Sabrina Lovell who is a marvel at everything she does.    I am also grateful to Janne' John of the Green Lotus Center, Susan Stewart and Helen Edwards of Beads by the Bay, Silvi Suarez who was at Holistic Movement Center, Gila Zak of Quantum Healing, Bridget Salisbury of Omni Yoga, Shannon of Slightly Zen and Annie Hopper of Yoga village, Patrick of Top Dog and our landlord, Pat O'Daniels for advice and help and support.
And most of all, I am grateful for my granddaughter, Aine, and all the love she brings.  I am grateful that I am healthy and able to share her life and be there when she needs me.
Thank you to everyone for helping me to live my dream of service and healing and love for everyone.   Penny
  We  will be closed on Thanksgiving day .  However, we are going to try to entice you to come to Ruby Dragon on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
The first 20 people who come in each day and make at least a $25 purchase will be given a free Red Selenite heart - a retail value of $7.
A protective stone, Selenite shields a person or space from outside influences. Selenite can evoke protection from the angelic realm and also dispels negative energy. The powerful energies of Selenite help one connect with one's guides, and guardian angels.   Selenite calms and soothes, bringing a deep peace and sense of tranquility. Selenite brings mental clarity, clearing confusion and revealing the bigger picture behind any problem.
Instead of sending you a story this week, I wanted to show you the lovely assorted gifts our staff put together for your holiday shopping.  Shown here are bundles for Love and Heart Center; Grounding and Protection; Calming & Focus; and Joy and Happiness.  We put 4 bracelets in each bundle and then discounted the regular price.  These will make lovely gifts.



Sometimes you just cannot decide what to give some people as a gift.  Well, we are going to help give you even more choices.  Our creative staff got together and had a lot of fun assembling gifts from different items in the shop.  The top photo shows:
• Doreen Virtue book and oracle card deck combinations at a discounted price.
• Christmas bags for children with gemstone chip bottles, an animal totem made of soapstone with a card explaining the animal spirit and a dream catcher.
• Pendulum gift sets with a laminated card that explains how to use a pendulum and a beautiful long chakra necklace with a pendulum gemstone point in a lovely sari bag.
The photos on the bottom show close ups of some of the assortments we put together.  There are some for cleansing your space of negative energy, attracting love and abundance and gridding your home.
All of our kits are discounted from the regular prices.

Where did Thanksgiving go? Where did that time of being grateful for the people we have in our lives and the countless many other things for which we ought to be thankful, go to? Well, let’s dive in guys and gals and talk some Astrology and figure this out!
Well it’s that time everyone…the time when the New Moon is now in 26¬¬° of Scorpio! What does that mean for all of us? Basically, the atmosphere where we’ve been talking about in this last month or so about setting healthy boundaries with people, is going to soften a little and become a bit more penetrable...this cycle is very positive when it comes to setting more personal and permanent goals; after all, we are coming to the tail end of the year! This is actually a very auspicious time with the holiday season quickly approaching us!  For example, this week, on Monday, Venus became in conjunction with Jupiter which is showing—no matter how difficult it is—that we must be compassionate, not only with our fellow man but, to all we may encounter! I know, I know, “Quit asking me to go out of my comfort zone Jessica!”
I read this once before but, it seems like an opportune time to refer to it this week, that we all must “live through our higher heart”; you’d be so surprised about the power of intention and where it can take you! So, don’t just dream, or keep everything completely close to your chest…SAY what you NEED and WANT out loud to the Universe—she is always listening!
So, when you’re getting your holiday table ready, filling it with delicious food and even better company, let’ not forget to be THANKFUL for who and what we already have…it is beyond the time for our souls to realign themselves with that inner magic that this time of year brings about!
And until next time, may the planets and stars guide you and bless you in the coming week!
