Why are you so resistant to taking your support team’s advice, and in the name of good business, raising the prices of the pieces? There’s very little profit in it; you subsidize the shipping costs; and you often included gifts of additional pieces when available? This aspect of your and your staff’s work, is very labor intensive.
It’s more labor intensive than anyone knows — but it’s a labor of love. The vintage pieces often require that I polish their silver. The links in the lighter jewelry pieces are more fragile and have to be checked and tightened. Neighbors think I’ve lost it, since I try and wear as many of the pieces as I can before sending them to you. It’s not exceptional to see me emptying trash, or planting tulip bulbs, laden in the beautiful jewelry. Having said that, I can see who will be wearing the piece as I bless it for you, and it gives me much joy to see a young girl in Eastern Europe, or an elderly man in Peru, arise from being a servant to humanity, to being a regal god being. The adorning of the Self is a reminder of your rising as the divine and majestic beings that you are. (You will notice that the Gems became available simultaneously with the profound revelation of your being eternal components of the Infinite’s beginningless body.)
Now I have a question: will you please post the following slogan wherever the jewelry is shown
“A servant no more, I arise in majesty and glory.”
We’ve noticed that the pieces you choose for each of us, sometimes don’t exactly match the description of the category we order from. Is there a reason for this?
For reasons I haven’t explored yet, some pieces demand to go to certain buyers. It’s as though they were made for that particular god or goddess. A pendent may for instance turn into a necklace. So that is what I then bless and send for that person. On a few occasions I have seen that the piece is a replica of another piece you have owned and loved at some time in your timeless existence.
You have said that the prices will go up on the first of November, yet the prices for the different categories were put up on a web store in October… Are these prices going to change?
There are two things I was resolved to do, that I seem to be unable to follow through with — for now my heart just won’t let me. Firstly, Halloween is tomorrow. 800 Children will be coming to my door (if it rains, else it’s 1,000 children) dressed up as goblins, little scary witches, fairies and other creatures, to get candy. Every year I spend hundreds of dollars on candy to hand out to the little unicorns and ghosts that storm my front door. But giving them such unhealthy treats, seems like child abuse. However, they plan and make their Halloween costumes for months, and look forward to this all year. I tried to be firm with myself about not doing it this year, but I just can’t bring myself to do it. So today I’ll go in search of “healthy” candy — if there’s such a thing.
Now we come to the second issue:
I will oppose changing the prices on the web for as long as I can, without actually losing money. It takes me hours to bless the pieces, and to do the alchemy for the Rune Masters’ owl emblem turquoise and silver cuffs and the anchor rings. But if I were able, I would share my delight with my Beloved Lightfamily by giving these beautiful pieces to you for free. But for now, the best I can do is to keep their prices as low as we can. We are constantly seeking out affordable sources for obtaining them from Bali, Peru, Turkey, Nepal, Tibet, India, Egypt, and other countries. So, for the immediate future, we’ll keep the prices on the web store as is.
