A wise man Robert Anton Wilson once said:
“A true initiation never ends. ”
-It doesn’t ever end and we tell ourselves;
” when it slows down”, “when we are over the hump”, “when we have more money”, “when there is more time”, “this will pass”
But ask yourself if any of these thought limitations serve your purpose? Honestly, and this is something that has been hard for me to accept. Life is a series of initiations, there is ALWAYS going to be something to step over and accept.
Accepting right now, the timing of everything and where you are and where you are going is kind of hard when you are full of drive, ideas, and goals. One thing at a time – we are all undergoing deep initiations all of the time. Some of us are tra la la along and don’t writhe through these tides, and some of us come in and out of skin again and again. Both are acceptable but resistance, resistance is what leads to suffering. I resist, I am not telling anyone how to live life on my blog but rather live life through thought and process, consciously. This is how I am coping too. Post surgery, Post Winter, Post latest initiation.
My blog has been having issues the last month as well so I haven’t been able to update as much as I would like but it works again and now I’ve learned about blog security! Yay! I will be posting more often because I have my keys to this car back – and I feel like they are out of my hands sometimes on social media. A lot of people want to cash in on you if they think you’re successful at something. I have been successful and I am glad. That’s all because of you and me. I put in a lot of work and GRIT to get to this place and no one is sailing over here. It’s hard work every day.
I’m glad to finally feel confidence in what I have done and am doing. It’s a yellow brick road. There are lots of twists but you posses that power all along you just have to journey for it. Additionally while I have been climbing I have I holed up for a while and it’s never a great idea to hide yourself away so I am trying to get out there and just good old fashioned be WITH people again.
Remember that? Before our phones stood like a study carol between fun and who we love? Before I lost the last 2 years of sleep gritting out my business?It’s a weird climate to flesh out as a person, a mom and an entrepreneur.
My latest initiation is calling for this , the presence, the present, being present. The NJ shore has a lot of things to do and the locals are doing their part to make it interesting. More details THERE too coming soon. I just signed on to do the SOULSATIONAL festival here on the shore this summer and will have more details on that soon along with other events.
As winter comes to a close I have developed and honed well loved products and listened to your feedback. Thank you for your photos on all of your reviews and for your words of support and encouragement. BethKaya also became proudly insured members of the Handmakers Soap and Cosmetic Guild – and I am building out my presence in shops, boutiques and retail fronts all over the world! I just landed product in Australia, The UK and set up shop at a place in NYC. (**I keep stopping myself from writing “our” presence – who is our? I am just ME – It is ALL done by 1 person!**)
If you’re still reading this, please join this group because my facebook is kind of broken unless I pay for you to see it. It’s been a long road to break through and getting to a point of substantial social media growth and feeling it censored by advertisers is an objective to overcome.

Content from my actual BethKaya page must be paid to promote for you to see it. How authentic is that really? Do you want to see “sponsored” in the corner of my all of my artwork? I refuse, honestly. Give it to who wants it, feed it to who will eat it – take it or leave it.
In BK ART NEWS-
I am happy to report that my deck of harmony cards went to print and its coming! 17 cards in all front with a unique intentional crystal grid and the back with a self growth mantra ! I have passed out 250 in orders and on a few tables as promised and am almost completely out of them!
That entire set of cards is available on preorder HERE.
Those will be out in just a few weeks as well. All preorders will come with a mandala sticker and sacred geo tats. Self publishing is super expensive and I uploaded all of the artwork to redbubble to help offset the costs. I’ve ordered from them to support my girl Mal at WingostarrJewelry ! The products are quality! Check out my SHOP tab for etsy and redbubble items and here is a lil preview of the redbubble jams.
Stay tuned to just more here and you know I OWN this and despite being hacked twice (touche) I just need to work with these tools and survive like businesses used to before the internet. How’s that for a BethKaya Spring Preview? Eh, playing by the rules is boring.
