In Store Special: Burn the Buddha 15% off This Week only!

I love the idea of the "Burn the Buddha" Candles. Not only do they represent a challenge and teach us to let go, they are ridiculously cute!
The ultimate step to enlightenment is to let go of all earthly attachments. So of course everyone buys this Buddha candle with the intention of placing it on an altar or shelf somewhere, and to never burn it.
Get this: The point is to burn it!
 
When I explain the simplicity of the practice, peoples minds are blown! 
We buy the Buddha, we love the Buddha,  but you must burn the Buddha.
The end result of burning the Buddha is that we learn that the spiritual and emotional things we value are what are important on our journey to Nirvana. 
 
So, Burn the Buddha!

Special announcement: Dorothy Morrison and Wicked Witch Studios would like to sponsor two couples for the Midwest Witches' Ball.

In true Dorothy Morrison style, she would like to make it possible for two couples, who would not normally have the means, to attend the Midwest Witches Ball. As a sponsor of the ball, she was given four tickets.  Since she cannot attend, she wants to give back to the Michigan community who has been so loving to her.    In an effort to support both the local community and local vendors, Candle Wick Shop will be working with Dorothy to select the two couples who will receive free tickets to Midwest Witches' Ball.
 
So it's super easy. Just send an email to fundraiser@candlewickshoppe.com and nominate the couple of your choice. Make sure you include a brief overview of why you are nominating them, their contact info and ages. Midwest Witches' Ball is a 21 and over event.  Nominations will be accepted between Sept 1st and Sept 30th 2016. 
 
 
DorothyDorothy Morrison has worked behind the scenes to sponsor many families over the years, and donates regularly to several charities including the Wounded Warrior Project and the Fraternal Order of Police.  For Dorothy, it's a matter of doing what's right, giving back for all the blessings she's received, and knowing that her "donations" are really going to help someone in need, rather than padding an administrator's annual bonus.
 
Midwest Witches' Ball has sponsored many charities including Wolf Run Wildlife and Spiritual Sanctuary,  Pagans In Need, Michigan Pagan Scholarship Fund and SpiralScouts™ (Wolverine Tribe).
 
As Always  we encourage everybody to visit the people who make it happen.

A Beacon in the Magical Community

Jacki2 Resized

Jacki Smith is one of my most important rol models. As someone who aspires to be an entreprenuer in the magical and spiritual communiity, she is a great person to watch and learn from. Her motivation and ambition is inspirational. I can feel her powerful magic before she arrives just to say "Hi!" and check on the store. She is very dedicated to her craft and business,  and that makes you feel protected, nurtured and included. I can only dream to be as successful and icredible as Jacki Smith. I would love to thank her for allowing me to be part of the Candle Wick Shoppe family and wish her a Fantastic Month of Jacki!
