10 Questions for Hymie’s Vintage Record Store

Laura (co-owner of Hymie’s) recently welcomed Soul Flower into Hymie’s Record Store, located off Lake Street in the Longfellow neighborhood of South Minneapolis. Hymie’s was once described by Rolling Stone as “a classic, overstuffed mom-and-pop used-vinyl haven”  and we were so excited to to have it as a backdrop for our Heart & Soul Collection! We took the opportunity to ask Laura about herself, Hymie’s, and of course music.

2018 Full Moons – March

Inspiration for the two full moons in March hints at the quickly-approaching spring season. Can you believe winter will soon be over?!

Take some time to meditate on the changing of the seasons. Notice the little things that fill your heart with gratitude.

Such a Winter’s Day

My daughter Siera and I did a mini photoshoot a few weeks ago at Greenwood Park and Salisbury House neighborhood in Des Moines. We had planned the shoot for the last week in 2017 but the subzero weather kept us inside for weeks. So on the first day that is popped above 10 degrees, we headed out for a walk in the park. I have to say, Siera was a trooper, considering how cold it was to be wearing tank tops and short sleeves! Enjoy the photos (our dog Ziggy makes a guest appearance) and more of these products will be on our website in the coming weeks!! ~Peggy

chakras preview 760x500 - How to Activate Your Chakras

How to Activate Your Chakras

How to Activate Your ChakrasChakras are areas of energy in the body that run through your center from the base of your spine to the top of your head. The word “chakra” (prounounced “CHOCK-rah”) is Sanskrit, meaning “wheel”, which refers to the spinning energy in each one. Each chakra has its own symbolism and each affects different aspects of your being: physical, mental, and spiritual. The energy of a chakra can be low, high, or anywhere it between – it exists on a spectrum – but a chakra is never fully “closed.” The chakras work best when balanced. Keeping that in mind, you can work to activate your chakras one at a time, starting with where you feel needs attention. If you’re unsure where to start, try taking a chakra balancing quiz online or just starting at the foundation (Root chakra) and work your way up. (more…)

2018 Full Moons – January

January 1st brings the first full moon of the year. The full moon is said to be a time of heightened energy all around, and a good time to harness that energy to find clarity about what you want in your life. Some see the full moon as a time to harvest the fruits of your past labors; a time of peak manifestation and abundance. The fullness of the moon is fleeting, though, and marks the turning point between waxing and waning. From now until the New Moon, turn your attention inward instead of out.

In 2018, we’ll be sharing monthly moon inspiration.
