Carol Shares: What Do I Want?


Wha Hoo! I have survived February!

Windy cold weather, four super moons, purging, opportunities, and confusion

A refusal to be who I was, uncertain of whom and where I want to be

An inner rebellion, body showing signs of struggle and illness, my mind like I am going mad!

Along with the balance of visions including possibilities, joy, success, and love

As my body and soul seem to be squishing me through an opening that I am yet able to fit.


I will be 58 years old on April 29.

A part of me says … “Old girl: slow down, put your feet up, you have done enough”

Which really I think is just old fear and self-doubt creeping in

FEAR: is something we all face in our lives at some time or another

Can I do it? How will I do it? Am I crazy?

Another part of my brain says … “WAKE UP, LET’S GO, and LET’S SEE WHAT WE CAN DO NEXT!”

I remember when Mom (Nan) and I started Nan’s Rock Shop

She teetered on the fence, thinking she was crazy to start a business at this same age

If she had given into her fear and stayed where she felt quiet and safe … Nan’s Rock Shop would not exist today

My Mom is a role model to me, all she has done, achieved, with a big heart and sharing of so much love

Leaving a valuable and memorable imprint that has influenced so many of us, this community, and more

I am so proud of you Mom, of us, and all we have done

With very little financial support or business experience

We did it our way, figured it out one step at a time … together.

What do I want for Carol Layton for 2019?

I love the excitement of this business, merchandise, people, sharing

I am returning to teaching again and offering the occasional private session

I will grow the business of this Shop and Young Living Essential Oils

I will bring our two horses home, my heart aches for them to be here

I will continue to make time for family and friends

And I will love my partner James with my whole heart

Yes I will, how: undetermined, when: re-starting now!

May I leave a path of blazing fire, just because I can!


“I’ve learned that fear limits you and your vision. It serves as blinders to what may be just a few steps down the road for you.  The journey’s valuable, but believing in your talents, your abilities and your self-worth can empower you to walk the path down an even brighter path.  Transforming fear into freedom – how great is that?”  Soledad O’Brien


Stone of the Month: Azurite.

Azurite is a delicate stone that is known to crumble or stain. It is a stunning blue color that often blends with Malachite, Chrysocolla or Turquoise with copper deposits.  When combined with Malachite the blue ray penetrates and moves energy, calms stress levels within the system and the green ray facilities a deep healing force.  It helps to balance all chakras but is exceptionally helpful for the balancing and broadening of the third eye.  It is a stone of subconscious healing, helps to cancel charged and negative thoughts and old sabotaging programs. Then it helps to restore a higher, clearer, more evolved mental state.  In ancient times it was known as the stone to open gateways to heaven, or being “reborn into the Light as a more evolved self”.  It is a stone of fearlessness, changing your thoughts from WHY to WHY NOT!  It will guide you to opportunities, new situations, to take chances, reaching out into new areas and adventures. Known as the stone for the highest good of all beings! “ Fearlessness is not only possible, it is the ultimate joy.  When you touch nonfear, you are free.” Thich Nhat Hanh
