 Carol Shares: Join the Wave


Here I sit in the kitchen lounge of the Rock Shop

The snow is falling outside, a bit of chill in the air

I am warm and cozy, a cup of my herb tea blend in hand

Sipping quietly letting my thoughts wander, feeling truly blessed and grateful.

A feeling of success anchoring in, relief, comfort … and even bliss

I have my therapy rooms rented out, the shop is full, workshops scheduled

A tribe of confident and motivated people around me

New goals for this year of 2020 being organized and set into motion.

My heart is full, feeling loved and supported, confidence within myself.

I opened this Healing Center in the year 2000

I started with one therapy room in a large empty house

Me with no business experience, but a heart that just would not quit

The universe continued to send me people to help keep me on the path

Six months later my Mom (Nan) started Nan’s Rock Shop

And the rest is history!

This Centre holds the efforts and love of so many

Volunteers, customers, clients, friends and family

Thank you, thank you, thank you.

So I encourage you to live fully

Take chances, follow your dreams, and never give up on your potential

Regularly take time to sit with your victories

Allow your purpose, your gifts, your love and heart to shine forth!

Know that I did it against all odds

Know we can all accomplish anything when we set our mind and heart to it

You were chosen to do this earth walk; you brought gifts that you alone can offer

I believe in you, in us, and in the power

Of what is in each of us to open up and share.

This positive ripple from you joins in with others … and we create a WAVE!


Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts. Winston Churchill

Come visit see what is new in the shop, sit with us for a while in the kitchen lounge, see the flower–herb-vegetable gardens, give a wave to my pet goats Opal and Marshmallow, take some time to do a walking meditation – in the Labyrinth.

I share with you this beautiful place, the place I grew up, great memories, a close family, friends & colleagues.



OPAL is a very old stone formed when a combination of silica and water flowed and hardened in cracks and spaces in the earth.  The high water content gives a silky and milky translucent opalescent color.  Colors can include: white, pink, blue, orange and some of iridescent reflections and combinations, also many synthetic as well.  They are sensitive to heat and light, often brittle and can be cracked or chipped quite easily. In Roman times opal was, next to emerald, the most valuable gem. 

The opal is said to be many things including the most powerful of healing stones, the stone of hope, the stone of great achievement and even the “stone of the Gods”.  Like water rolls over and past rocks and roots in its way, the energy of opal can help continue on your path regardless of obstacles. During times of transformation, this is an invaluable energy to work with and hold close to your heart.  Opal is used in lightwork as a stone for strong and safe dream work, meditation, protection and astral travels. It is a soothing stone which can calm turbulent emotions and bring a deep sense of hope and inner peace.

Physical help for: headaches, eyesight, Parkinson’s disease, blood, insulin regulation, PMS, and the immune system.   Opal Care: is best cleansed under softly running water or under the light of the Moon. It is important to keep Opals out of sunlight where their water content can dry out.  Once a month regular soaking in water is beneficial. Known as the stone of being precious.     

White Opal is a stone of angelic connections. It is often used for clearing confusion, creates inspiration, spontaneity, happy dreams and changes. It is useful in balancing all chakras.     

Blue Opal gives us the courage to voice what we desire, with the added gift of charisma and charm.      

Pink Opal heals emotional trauma and is the stone of peace and tranquility for the heart (joy bringing).  It holds the vibration of remembering who you are, hope, great achievement, and connection to “goddess energy” (as worn by the Ancient Romans).  It is also known as the stone of “love, attracting soul-mate, long-term, fulfilling relationships”. 

Redwood Opal grounds as it increases one’s resilience to life’s ups and downs, and it allows one to bear grief and loss without being dragged into depression.  It helps in healing emotional wounds from the past, and it helps to feel things deeply yet with detachment.

Opals, of any kind, activate matters of the heart by promoting love, loyalty, attraction and the fiery passion that comes when those three traits are combined.  It can be quite an exciting and explosive stone!
