Autumn is Here, BethKaya Line is Up and Trickling Out!

Facebooktwittergoogle_pluspinterest

It may not be officially fall yet but in my world it’s here – I am so dizzy and late on an update. I rolled out a few new soap tones and sets live in my etsy shop now! Bath melts are taking a little longer , they are actually the kind of thing that takes a bit of finesse!

COVER ART: {listen while reading}

Stay tuned for new scent hue announcements and tune into my @BETHKAYA instagram account for some giveaway updates! The blog content is going to ramp up big time. My little one is off to school and I have more time for the business. The plan is to expand presence which is already in motion. BETHKAYA just landed at new yoga studios in NJ, NY and Scotland! I will be doing blogs about all the locations that carry my label and interviews with some of my peers in the self made industry. These are always textured and interesting people, so I want to share their mission & why with you through an interview style process here on the blog.

In the mean time here are some of the latest creations live in my shop, These are seasonal things that might not come back next shift around the sun. I love working my shop like a farm to table cafe of sorts. It somewhat is; with ingredients being fresh, seasonal and limited here and there. Every season the “menu” takes a different shape. It’s a really lovely and quasi ephemeral way to design intentional bath and body. Check it out:

✨A few new things in the shop just for Fall - including this #THIEVES guardian #soap - Historical #EssentialOil Blend known as Thieves - Clove, Orange Peel, Cinnamon Bark, Eucalyptus Leaf and Rosemary - gets its moniker from the time of the bubonic plague when bodies would pile up and pillagers used this blend to thwart contracting plague while robbing their discarded spoils. I've paired this blend with a soothing guardian soap and #blackonyx perfect for blocking illness and bad energy infections. ✨Till midnight I'm including Black Orgone Tetras in ALL shop orders.⚡️ BethKaya / etsy ⚡️

8/14 – Poem

There are winds that blow
Through lush corridors of gardens
That smell of old yesterdays
Battle fields, cook outs , hide and seek spots
And then the Silence after the intrusion of a prop plane and abandoned car alarm
Some soft moments
Or pillows in the sky take us somewhere
Somewhere we’ve been before
In our minds, our energy signatures
And the salty spray of a dawn evening
With the sensation it brings you
An understanding you felt
Is every bit of the potion to the paradox
That we are old, young and aging
Decaying
Racing towards the next something
Yearning sometimes
To know what it is
Become what we are
Live in the meaning
And those scents that poke the back of your neck and remind you of a place you once sat or an old lovers neck
Those messages in a bottle
Serve as an understanding
Of the ephemeral body
And memory
The present
And our choices
The bridges we cross
Those smells
The ones we burn
Those smells
And the ones we orbit for a time
And a time again
Long enough to smell something
Something familiar
Longing
Lasting
Imprinted
To be recalled on
When a creaking door leads you in
And the dust of an old book gives way to that ink and paper bound smell

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”

LISTENING TO:

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.

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.

What does this make you feel?

New Things to Look For in my Etsy Shop:

“Lunar Divide” “Crystal Lips ” Awakened Eyes”

XO BK

✨New Under Eye Oil ✨ #AwakenedEyes #crystalinfused #ByBethKaya "Awake. Shake dreams from your hair My pretty child, my sweet one. Choose the day and choose the sign of your day The day's divinity First thing you see. A vast radiant beach in a cool jeweled moon Couples naked race down by it's quiet side And we laugh like soft, mad children Smug in the wooly cotton brains of infancy The music and voices are all around us. Choose they croon the Ancient Ones The time has come again Choose now, they croon Beneath the moon Beside an ancient lake Enter again the sweet forest Enter the hot dream Come with us Everything is broken up and dances." -The Ghost Song, #TheDoors

✨New Under Eye Oil ✨ #AwakenedEyes #crystalinfused #ByBethKaya “Awake.
Shake dreams from your hair
My pretty child, my sweet one.
Choose the day and choose the sign of your day
The day’s divinity
First thing you see.
A vast radiant beach in a cool jeweled moon
Couples naked race down by it’s quiet side
And we laugh like soft, mad children
Smug in the wooly cotton brains of infancy
The music and voices are all around us.
Choose they croon the Ancient Ones
The time has come again
Choose now, they croon
Beneath the moon
Beside an ancient lake
Enter again the sweet forest
Enter the hot dream
Come with us
Everything is broken up and dances.”
-The Ghost Song, #TheDoors

Just finished this custom Buddhist rosary style (108beads) #mala for a beautiful lady. It was a journey to make, they always are and this one is loaded with Milky Quartz, Siam Rosewood, Sandalwood, Rudraksha, Lotus Seeds and Carves Tulsi wood. These are sacred and holy items in the Buddhist faith. With a Yellow Calcite Guru bead- I am so honored to hand this off for spiritual practice. She’s laying on a #vinyl Barbara Streisand album I adore the liner art for and hugged by some of my #orgone casts
