Where do I start? How do I begin? Any wise person will tell you that a journey of 1000 miles starts with a single step. From where this particular journey started to where I am now seems like roughly 50 000 miles of scrambling about in the mist. The darkest details of this journey will remain on the pages of my Book of Shadows, to be seen by none.

Where I am NOW is what counts. After almost 60 years on this planet, I have finally decided what I want to be when I grow up. I choose to be HAPPY.

In the process of this growing-up nonsense, there have been many times where the decisions that were made felt like there was no choice in the matter. When I reflect on these choices now, yes, there was a choice. Many times it was a process of choosing the lesser evil. However, NOW the path has finally shown itself to me. Ultimately, I am destined to build up a living by way of building a life.

Sacred Garden Fine Energies will be just that. A small shop (and greenhouse) in a small town in a small corner of Saskatchewan.

As a student of the Earth Based Ways, I believe that all gardens are sacred. I believe that this planet we live on is (very likely) one of the ONLY places in this galaxy that is nothing but GARDEN space from the coldest points of the poles to the Amazon Rain Forests. If you want to find the Garden of Eden take a look at what’s under your feet. Earth, in all her glory, is where humans dwell. We should probably have more respect for our own Mother.

As a self-professed hippie it just feels right. Born too late to be a “baby-boomer” and too soon to be “Gen-X-er” I’ve always seemed to walk a path somewhere between worlds. So I’m going to make use of my skills and knowledge to provide a shop where all are welcome and included. Where being different is considered “normal”. Where practitioners of “alternative” methods and training are welcome to present their services to clients without side-long glances and suspicion. Where artists from the area can show off their brilliance for all to see. Where those seeking to expand their perceptions of their own world and energy can come and feel at home.

Once the I’s are dotted and the T’s are crossed, this sign (gifted to me recently in celebration of Sacred Garden) will be the first installation.

I find the oak leaves and acorns in the middle strangely prophetic…

Blessings and peace to you and yours
