Back home in Rhode Island if I had an unpleasant day I would go to Gloria’s Store, “The White Light Book Store.” I never called it “The White Light Book Store.” I called it “Gloria’s.” She was my peace of mind. She was always there to listen. The store was small, which made it feel more like home. The minute you walked in you could smell the fresh scent of sandalwood. She had many crystals in glass bowls and books shelves all around the store filled with lots of different books. There were some days you just needed a peaceful place away from home to collect your thoughts and this was the place.
Moving to Florida was probably the biggest awakening ever. After a long hard day at work there was no place to go to unwind but home. Once I finished my bachelor’s degree in business. I decided it was time to have a business of my own. I had stopped doing readings for a while, then suddenly it was picking up again and I felt lend to do something with it. That’s when I opened Spiritual Uplifts Metaphysical Store.
Spiritual Uplifts Purpose:
First, let me tell you where I got the name “Spiritual Uplifts” for my business. My friend Gloria once told me a reading should feel like a “Spiritual Uplift.” That stayed with me every time I did a reading. That’s why I decided to call my store “Spiritual Uplifts.“
Starting your spiritual journey brings in so many amazing shifts in your life, and you need to be around like-minded people that not only understand, but are able to explain what is happening. I opened Spiritual Uplifts to support people with their spiritual gifts, help them to discover peace, find closure with deceased loved ones, and provide guidance, healing, and assistance with trauma.
When I started my business in 2011, I wanted to provide a place where like-minded people could meet and study what they love. In addition, I wanted give Jacksonville a healthier outlook on the metaphysical community. I feel I have accomplished this.
This is a place where you can find guidance, love and acceptance. We offer services such as life coaching, spiritual readings, energy work, crystal healings, minster counseling, and many classes on different topics within spirituality. We have special events with well-known teachers from all over, lectures, galley readers, healing classes, etc. The goal is to bring the metaphysical community together, as well as provide the best training.
We are all teachers; yet we are all much better students. No one person is an expert at any talent. We can always learn more from each other. Knowledge is the key to success, and we can never learn enough. Come join us and be part of our community.
How we give back to our community:
Most people in the business would call me crazy because I choose to treat my business as profit, where as a minster, I could be treating this center as a non-profit. However, I understand how energy works. I feel that choosing to pay taxes as a profit is being more supportive to my community.
In addition, we support St. Jude’s Hospital. A percentage of what we make goes to them monthly. We also have events to raise extra money to give them. Our store has a metaphysical library open to the public with just a $20.00 yearly maintenance fee. For people whom are looking for jobs, we hand out packets that have helpful information. On Jan 1, 2017 we will begin a rewards program for our customers, where every $100.00 you spend on retail you get a credit back of $10.00. The program is supported by our new POS system that will keep track of what you spend, so as you start to accumulate $100.00, you get a $10.00 credit to use in the store.
Have a wonderful New Year! I am grateful to be part of your life. Sending you all love and light.
Love you all
