Holiday Season Update

This has been a hard and emotional week. Stretched beyond what I ever thought imaginable, and strained by relationships sometimes. I think I need to be firmer about not people pleasing and honoring my truths and boundaries. What are ways you assert yours? Melissa from the @selfcarecove crew made these with flowers and herbs from our family garden. Black eyed Susans are my home state's flower (MD). They are still blooming in this crazy Cali weather!!

Greetings! The holiday season is almost here! A time to share our gratitude and love for one another.  Our focus has been creating the perfect bundles to help you care for your mind/body/spirit.
Give the gift to yourself and loved ones this season of self-care!
We are kind of going on tour! We have been working hard to prepare for some exciting events in Asbury Park this December with the store opening being so up in the air. We want to get the products in your hands however we have to do it!
December 10th and 17th, we will be returning to the Bazaar in Convention Hall for their annual holiday vendor event. The Indian Summer bazaar in September was a blast and we are anticipating this will be even more so. Grab some hot cocoa and join us for the fun!
On December 22nd, we will be in Asbury Park once again for a very special workshop. Keli Skellinger, the esteemed owner of Maitrisage – Massage + Reflexology, invited us to her monthly Sukha Series to share our wisdom and products right before Christmas. We decided to offer a relaxing bath soak and tea ritual that has been a staple of our daily self-care. For a $15 suggested donation, you will be able to create your own salts bath to take home! Bring your oils or use ours and we’ll bring the salt bar! We will have a table set up for the event as well, so it will be a perfect time to stock up on any last minute gifts.  By the way, Keli is an amazing body worker – Asbury Park and Jersey Shore locals need to hit her up if you need the best massage you’ve ever had. She’s magical.
Be on the lookout soon for our upcoming store announcements. We have been creating a beautiful space in Brick Township to share with all of you. Our permits were released TODAY so that means it will be a few more weeks yet. Maybe December 1? We will see – I hope you’ll support us now and when we finally open. Our loyal patrons have been so wonderful! Until then, you will be able to shop online at https://www.etsy.com/shop/bethkaya
**If you are local, you can save on shipping and pick up your online order at the store! Just mention it in the comment section. We will refund/ or hold your shipping and arrange the best time for you to pick it up. Also, we ship ALL over the world and gift wrap, so if you want to beat the holiday rush at the post office, once the store is open, we can totally assist.
**Those ordering BethKaya goods online, please note that shipping times are 10-14 business days. Please take that into consideration when placing orders, we do high volume and there is only a few hands in the pot – we never want to rush our process. You all know by now that we treat each package really special and pack an experience into each one! Please reach out if you have gifting needs or if you need to rush your package past the queue.
Additionally we have holistic products galore in boxes waiting for our store to open. We have ALL of the best brands, BethKaya of course and names like Jason, Zum, Aura Cacia, Burts Bees, Doctor Bronner’s and More!
Contact Beth to set a budget and create a spa care gift set for you or a loved one this season. We will prepare it based on your tastes or the scents you think your loved ones would like and then package it beautifully and send it wherever you wish! You may call the store’s phone number also if you wish to speak to me or an associate about placing an order or visiting!
732.477.4307
Happy Thanksgiving, everyone! We wish you a beautiful holiday filled with love and new memories.
Love,
Bethkaya & the Self Care Cove

So if you follow us on social media you see a lot of changes we are going through as a business. For one I keep saying WE – yes we- I have a dear friend Michelle Russo who is flying copilot right now with BethKaya and the new venture – Self Care Cafe. She’s a beautiful soul, if you’re a friend of BethKaya, you know her by now but I will just formally say she is helping me keep my head above water. Along with several other players, you know who you are, and your time is coming. Thank you to everyone again and again for donating and supporting our self care mission!

Big meeting today - cohorts ;) if you are on the jersey shore and want to catch some poetry Sunday eve DM me!!

We leased a space in Brick NJ and it’s adorable, the issues we are having getting into the space however, not so adorable. That’s an entirely different post and for all things considered, let’s keep the tone happy.

I just did a late season restock on some new soaps, scent sizes, crystal parcels and orgone pieces. As I have money invested into the store front – I simply need your support. Things I’ve been sitting on are going to need to get uploaded and move out! So stay tuned to the etsy shop and keep checking back. It will take time for us to get into the space and we need the online business to have the same level of dedication if not more to be able to keep this dream floating.

INDIAN SUMMER

We are signed on to vend the Asbury Indian Summer Bazaar on Sunday Sept 24! I will be releasing more info about that in a little while but for now mark your calenders, it’s my birthday weekend btw so you simply can’t miss it!

I wrapped up the kiosk this weekend at Jersey Shore Premium outlets. What an experience that was. I really enjoy setting up an installation that is unique to each venue I am at and really each day I am there. I take something away and adjust each time.

There were some moments of conversation that I will bring with more forward forever. A friends father visited the booth for a while and he is undergoing stage IV cancer treatments throughout his body. He was just so happy to be around and grateful through the words he shared. He told me how he had to fly to Georgia alone for his treatments. He wasn’t complaining at all I just remarked “That must be so difficult to do the travel on the heals of everything.” He just looked at me and said ” I have held my dying child, this is nothing, I can do anything.” He meant it. He also remarked “Every morning I look up at the sky and say thank you, cancer changes you, it really does.” So above all that conversation comes with me and helps me ground my gratitude practice.

Incredibly beautiful photo of @faerieblessings in her glory rocking a crystal sphere and orgone point ring I sent her way ⚡️ she is magical!

@faerieblessings “crystal sphere and orgone point ring”

I put some new things up in the etsy shop, some essential oil blends, some candles, new scrubs and new edition soaps perfect for the thick of summer. I am really loving where the shop is headed and how it looks.

It’s been such an evolution. I have some new orgone pieces coming trickling into the shop too and would love for you to check it out and tell me what you think!

There is a black crow perched above me as I take this photo and stare into my own shadow against the panes of my humid house. When the black eyed Susan's bloom a part of my heart explodes a little, every year. The crow nods as if he knows why. . . . . . Orgone Rose necklace strung on blue chalcedony rosary. ⚡️

Sending this #orgone set to a very special person to my heart and spiritual development. Made this special hosting grid for them too. The intention behind this set is Space, Gravity, New Moon, Orbits, Transits, Wrathful Transformation, Nodding Ancestors, Throat, Root and Sacral Chakric Balance. ⚡️ #metaphysical #crystals #crystalinfused #crystalhealing #orgonite #transmutation #allone “Today a young man on acid realized that all matter is merely energy condensed to a slow vibration, that we are all one consciousness experiencing itself subjectively, there is no such thing as death, life is only a dream, and we are the imagination of ourselves. Heres Tom with the Weather.” -Bill Hicks (on truth reporting re: psychedelics)The holiday rush is almost over. In the New Year I have a lot of plans for my business. Changes in how I sell, efficiency and more attention to my family, self and light practice afoot! I hope you all take time to enjoy what’s so very fleeting and get into the spirit of the season a bit! Thank you all for supporting my business and the various projects I’ve had the pleasure of working on. (The Charity Prom, Lightworker Shopping Event, Wellness Giveaway, Handmade Holiday Vibes Group, The Butterfly Wellness Project and More) . It’s a pleasure to serve the community by sprinkling a little magic around! Happy Holidays from BethKaya Design! Sending you all abundance and the manifestation of your goals!

Crystal Eyes – Fall things At BethKaya

Facebooktwittergoogle_pluspinterest

My crystal stems ☺️?

Rocked out Skullboy’s Punk Rock Flea market yesterday. What a fun event to do. In a serious reflection phase right now heading into winter. A lot happened over the summer, and now the fall is going to slip away soon enough. My work evolves and things fall away, relationships and ideas that sounded so awesome as first go to the back burner. What’s my biggest priority?

What’s yours?

Great day today and just want to send a major shout out to this lady next to me Ms. Geraldine. @zuelanchic what can I say about her - if it wasn't for her no one would see me. I am an anxious recluse, afraid of what the world thinks of me and of my work. There's a lot to misunderstand, and I'm used to it. Just another day of being an alien for Beth. Thank you Ger - for putting up with it and keeping your grace on when I crumble. Thanks for encouraging me and believing in me and dealing with my bullshit. I love you and you are so beautiful. ❤️

Glad to be able to get out and do events. I am naturally inclined to stay home, I think most people are now. Kind of a pity. This is my friend Geraldine, she’s an amazing artist herself .

So onward into winter – new scent notes came in and I am busy mixing those into some potions of the season. Those will emerge soon enough.

To give you a teaser, hues of cannabis flower, olive, fig, cranberry, pipe tobacco, warm sweet orange, stargazer and more.

? fatty mascot ? thanks for having me @skullboybrand @skullboyspunkrockfleamarket ?✨?✨?✨?✨?✨

I hope that you all are enjoying fall and settling into things. Thank you to those of you who came out to support me at all of the events that I have done over the last few months. It means a lot to me. Truly.

Finishing up my annual marigold harvest and having a moment. Marigolds in so many cultures are symbols of the great spirit, offerings of overcoming, resurrection and hardiness. The ability to withstand an entire growing season, multiply and fall away to rebirth again when conditions are ripe and Hades releases Persephone once again into the mortal world. ?My nerves were hitting me for tomorrow's show ⚡️I know it's gonna be great but I do get nerves! ??I got this pouch from @mal_wingostarrjewelry 's Redbubble @redbubble of her #gratitude crystal meditation. It's perfect and such incredible quality. I've gotten a bunch of these pieces from her and the Redbubble community. ??Super rad hub there !! I'm so grateful to be doing what I do so it will be close to me ❤️tomorrow at the Skullboy Punk Rock Flea Market. (Brick NJ 12-5 Google it!) ? ✨Tagging some folks I'm grateful for and weave a wonderful fabric here of #artistry and goodness. Sorry to leave anyone out if I could only shine light all at once! (Then maybe too bright ?) ✨? #Tap & Follow? ? Any Fun weekend plans you wanna share? ???

Harvested the last of the marigolds and felt overwhelmed to be where I am right now. There are so many obstacles in life, and wellness and health is one of those things you cannot compromise on. I am looking forward to spending more time on my health and inspiring the health of others while I continue to make close to earth products. I’m eternally grateful to the fistful of people in the business I can trust and support my successes. As you grow – it’s harder to find people who genuinely support your happiness. When you find those people, treat them well and hold them close.

Eternally yours, spiritually driven and hopeful towards healthy,
