Secret Shopper

One of my favorite shops in Lakewood is Goddess Blessed, one of the few new age shops that is thriving!

The "secret" to being successful for owner Kathy Curran includes many reasons. First, upon entering you are greeted with a warm welcome, soothing aromatherapy, and a wide variety of fun items. The stock is constantly changing and growing, with everything from greetings cards, jewelry, both hand-made and imported, clothing, healing jewelry, candles, fresh herbs, spiritual items, sarongs, etc. Many items are made by local artists and craftspeople and are quite unique!
But to keep customers coming through the door, Kathy hosts several workshops almost daily, including meditation, reiki classes, herb classes, readings, tuning fork healings, and many more. For those of you who have not tried non-traditional healing for pain, I highly suggest a reiki treatment or other treatment at Goddess Blessed. You may be amazed! For the skeptical, Kathy also offers a free healing night the third Friday of every month, where you can try a short reiki or tuning fork treatment for one canned good donated to a local shelter.

Goddess Blessed recently moved two doors down to expand and regardless of your religious or medical beliefs, it is really worth checking out! I find something to buy every time I stop in, including my lavendar pillow sachet for happy dreams!
On a personal level, I know Kathy used to be a nurse and physician's assistant and even with that medical background has found reiki to be a great healing therapy. Having other friends who are nurses at Cleveland Clinic, I also know they use reiki there and in hospice. After receiving a treatment on open healing night with an aching back, I was able to go out dancing for hours! Goddess Blessed is located at 15729 Madison Ave (216-221-8755) and if you get on her e-mail list, you will receive weekly emails of workshops, events, and sales. I promise you won't be disappointed if you stop by!
