October is Full of Magick

We kicked off the month with the Harvest full moon on October 3 shifting us from summer to fall. I wish someone would explain that to California as we have had one long heatwave after heatwave. Mercury went into retrograde for its final time in 2020, on October 14 also making October quite intense. This retrograde will last until November 4. What is Mercury Retrograde?

Be sure to check out the magical Ritual Boxes (at the bottom of this post) we have created to help you survive this moon madness, and our Abundance Ritual Perfume Oil to dab on your wrist or wallet, to manifest the most magnificent abundance in your life. We have also created newly handcrafted, organic facial products for you to try, from a magical blend of luxurious oils, enriched with precious frankincense, and blessed under the full moon. I've used these in my business and I highly recommend them.

Thank goodness we had a super new moon in Libra on October 16, 12:31 pm, reminding us to check in with ourselves and do a little self-care. In the days that follow try our 'New Moon Bath Ritual' box below. Time to write our abundance checks and set our intentions for weeks to come (more on abundance checks and intention setting next month).

NEW MOON: October 16 brought us the closest new moon of 2020. Some will call it a supermoon. You won't see this extra-close new moon because it'll travel across the daytime sky with the sun. But you might notice its gravitational effect on the tides along ocean shorelines in the days following new moon.

Post new moon energy invites us to look inward. Helping us work through some judgment and injustice, and an opportunity to heal the relationship between masculine and feminine providing a little more clarity and acceptance for what is at this very moment. We must trust the timing of our lives and find happiness through gratitude. Gratitude will keep your energy in the correct place and will continue to attract positive things your way. Time to turn up the volume on happiness and joy.

Where my witches at? We close the month with a super blue moon on one of my favorite holidays October 31 Halloween. The rare occurrence of a Halloween full moon in all time zones hasn't happened since 1944 and won't happen again until 2039 hence the phrase "once in a blue moon."  The other rare occurrence, two full moons in a month will not happen again for another 32 months. We have created supplies for this month (see below), to help keep you on track.

Sending you all love and light. Remember: JUST KEEP GOING!

I'm thankful, grateful & blessed by the Goddess,

Shakira Tennille

May Blog – Mother’s Day Raffle

Thank you, everyone, for all the nice messages you have sent and for waiting patiently for me to reopen. As you have probably heard by now, we likely have at least one more month of being closed. That means one more month of us doing without each other. As hard as that may be...

2020 the year I turned 20 in quarantine

During this downtime, Heavenly Hands celebrated a significant milestone. As of April 26, 2020, I have officially been a massage therapist and business owner for 20 years! It seems like only yesterday when I walked out of the National Holistic Institute with my certificate in hand. I had no idea when I started, all the marvelous people I would meet along the way, and all the amazing places it would take me. I wasn’t aware then of how this career path would be the thing to give my life purpose and to ultimately mold my entire life. If you had told my 24-year-old self that I would be celebrating this achievement while in quarantine, I wouldn’t have believed it. Gotta admit tho, with everything going on, it feels bittersweet.

With Mother's Day just around the corner and while we're still under this darn SIP order, I thought LET'S DO SOMETHING FUN!!
More fun than sheltering-in-place for another month. LOL!

So, I'm raffling off MY VERY FIRST APPOINTMENT, ON THE VERY FIRST DAY that I'm allowed to have customers back in my studio! Whenever that is. Sound cool?

GRAND PRIZE: ONE 60 MINUTE SERVICE OF YOUR CHOICE ($85 value)

SECOND PRIZE: STAY AT HOME SPA DAY SAMPLER ($50 value)

(you will receive a marvelous box delivered to you in the mail, chock full of some of my favorite products for you to treat yourself to a relaxing at-home Spa Day)

**Offer runs until Midnight on May 7, 2020**
**The winner will be announced May 8, 2020**

April Blog

And... just like that, it's April!

How are you all doing? Miss me yet? I MISS all of you and have had a rough couple of weeks processing this whole pandemic thing. Mostly feeling sad that I’m unable to reopen this week as originally hoped. If we're lucky, we will all be able to go back to work (fingers crossed) by April 30th. Just in time to celebrate my 20th Anniversary as a massage therapist and a woman in business. If that happens we can all celebrate, and CELEBRATE we will!

Until then, like you, I will continue to self-quarantine and do my part. I have been going on long walks, practicing social distancing of course, on the days that I can. Here are some photos from those walks.

I have started cooking my way through the pantry. It's amazing the stuff you find when you’re forced to make something with what you have on hand. I have started an Instagram page dedicated directly to my 'quarantine cooking experiments' called @thegourmetgansta_510 check me out if you would like to follow along. I'll post photos and share recipes too.

I have been starting most of my days with a guided meditation using The Calm app. This only takes 15 to 20 min and really helps me to “not go to the dark side” so to speak. It helps me stay focused on those days when my mind strays into worrying about what our new “normal” might look like. It helps keep me grateful for what I do have. My family, you, and this amazing opportunity I have been given to help and heal people. Yes. You can get all of this from a meditation app. LOL.

Ok, I can see all my Moms out there (yes I have ESP). Oh, excuse me, I mean my "Teacher/Moms", all rolling your eyes like you have time to sit 15 - 20 minutes with your eyes closed! Ha! All jokes aside, I confess, some days I cry and some days I dance around my living room like the crazy woman that you all know and love.

We keep hearing “we are in this together” but, together is NOT exactly where we are. I feel for all of you and I would love to hear what you have been doing while in quarantine? I am in contact with a lot of you via text or Facebook but, I would love to hear more about how you are getting through this. To my small business owners, students, teachers, and counselors. To my stay-at-home moms and all the movers and shakers who travel for a living. To my spa industry colleagues and city workers. To my Uber drivers and therapists. My first responders, doctors, and nurses on the front lines and my techies working from home. Some of you live alone. I know not being able to socialize has taken a toll on you for sure. Some of you live with others and are now realizing that “thing” they do, isn’t so cute after all. Whatever case, each and every one of you are unique with your own set of circumstances to deal with. No matter your situation, we can swap survival skills. As you already know, should any of you going thru separation anxiety, depression, or any stress-induced emotion, please reach out. If not to me, then to someone. In that sense, we ARE all in this together.

Until then, stay home. Stay healthy. Stay sane. Try to find the bright side and do what feels natural.

See you soon,
Shakira 💋💋

Happy St. Patrick's Day

Happy St. Patrick's Day

Hi Everyone,

Today is St. Patricks Day. The luckiest day of the year. It also marks a very important anniversary for me and my little spa. Six years ago today, I took my very first client in my current location. That my friends makes it a SUPER LUCKY day for me!  My clients are my extended family and I have immense gratitude for each of you. Thank you all so much for your many years of support.I made a decision early last year to switch my business model to provide services on an exclusive basis. Deciding then to focus on a smaller number of select clients. Considering the current crisis, it turns out that this was a good thing in more ways than one. It means that my office is not visited by the general public on a daily basis and that is good for me and you.

  • All my appointments are on an appointment-only basis.
  • I know all of my customers very well so there are no strangers coming through the doors.
  • I have staggered appointments so there is minimal overlap between appointments which means you are unlikely to meet someone else in my lobby.
  • I have asked all of my clients to NOT come in if they are sick or think they might have been exposed.
  • Excellent hygiene has always been a top priority before, and I continue to keep extremely high standards in my spa.

My plan is to take appointments again as soon as the 'shelter in place' order is rescinded and to continue to provide you all with a safe, clean, and relaxing environment.

See you on the other side, I miss you already!

Shakira 💋💋
