Here is a little bit about us at Be Enchanted.
My name is Sandey and with my three beautiful children we have created this business in which we are so passionate about expanding and sharing with the world! We are all about helping people find their true self to live a happier, healthier and more fulfilling life.
We began in 2000 with just 2 hand crafted crystal products. by 2003 we became Be Enchanted. Since then we have continued to grow and in 2012 we moved to the small town of Foster, located in the breathtaking hills of South Gippsland, to put all of our effort into creating a healing place for people to come and just BE. We have a gorgeous 1 acre meditation garden set up, where everyone is welcome to come and take a stroll or simply just sit, breathe and soak up all the healing energy that has been generated in this space.
We have an awesome craft room where we run art and craft classes for children and adults alike. In the classes we teach you to make your very own dream catchers, sun catchers, gem trees, rock critters and so much more. So come along and play with some gemstones and make something beautiful to take away with you. To find out more about our classes click HERE
We run regular meditations and several different healing courses. We are in the process of extending to create a beautiful space to accommodate more people to join in our mediation and group healing sessions, sound therapy and courses for Reiki, Pellowah and Crystal healing knowledge and insight. We are hoping this space will be ready by the start of November. To find out more about the courses click HERE
Our reasons for running these sessions and courses and a little bit more about us can be found below. Our aim is to help you on your journey to find yourself by releasing any fears that you may have as well as helping you to dissolve any blockages or emotions that may be holding you back or causing any ‘dis ease’, to help you find that place of love and peace within as we have done. Healing is a personal journey and we are here to help you on your journey any time you need.
I was not always kind to myself or others but one day the light bulb moment came and I realised it was time to change. It has not been an easy journey but it has been the most rewarding one. The healing courses that we run have changed my life and I hope that I can help you find that place of peace and love within like I have. If you would like to know more about my journey then continue reading below. I hope my story can help you find your own path in this beautiful human experience we are all living!
Love and light to all of you from our fun and crazy family here at Be Enchanted.
Here is a brief summary about us and of my journey so far….
(Trust me this is as brief as I can get it as there really is so much more)
I was not always the person I am today. Due to several events in my childhood I went off the rails at an early age so by the time I reached adulthood, I was a very misunderstood person, filled with anger, bitterness, jealousy and just about every other negative emotion you could think of. I was without much compassion for anyone and always had a negative answer or insight to any situation or person. I was not at all proud to be this person but at the time didn’t know there was a better way. I fully understand now why I went through all the things I did as it gave me the understanding, compassion and empathy that I would need at this point in my life now to be able to help others on their journey to transform their life and mind space just as I did. So for all of these lessons I am so very thankful.
At the beginning of 2000 I realised my marriage was over but it took me a few months to find the courage to end it. When I finally did, I found myself in an extremely deep state of silent depression, nothing made sense and I felt like I just wanted it all to be over. I wasn’t good for myself or anyone else, especially my children. I spent every possible moment of the day in bed crying myself to sleep to drift away into nothingness or soaking in my self-pity. I was an expert at playing the victim and the ‘poor me’ scenario, I think I should have received a medal for my award winning performance. It was flawless. I am glad that I can look back now and laugh at what a mess I was.
Now don’t get me wrong, even though I was suffering a silent depression, I was still very angry and I had a very sharp tongue, as my mother would say. But, I was also tough and supposedly very much in control or so I would have everyone believe. You see, I had always, ever since I can remember, put on the show of toughness, no one could hurt me or mess with me because that’s just who I was. So although I was suffering severe depression, I was also in a deep state of denial and my ego was damn sure no-one was going to see me crack because tough people don’t crack. So if anyone came around I put on a great show. Many award winning performances doing that I can assure you.
I am grateful that my children were so young at the time that they didn’t fully understand what was happening around them as my walls kept crashing down. I did the most basic tasks for them and just spent the rest of the time asleep where I was numb and didn’t have to think about how badly I had messed up my life and theirs.
Around September of 2000 my ex-husband came around one day to pick up the kids for the weekend and handed me a book and told me I needed to read it. Ok, I have to say here that he was ADAMANT I NEEDED TO READ THIS BOOK! Well something told me I needed to read it too. As messed up as I was I knew there was more to life and that there had to be a better way to cope.
The book was called “The Celestine Prophecy” by James Redfield.
So I read the book. WOW did the lights go on! IT was just what I needed. It made so much sense and I really resonated with everything it had to say. So I put on my big girl panties and tried to get my life back in order. It wasn’t easy, not by a long shot. However I did start to pay attention to the synchronicity straight away and I started following the guidance I was getting. Despite the fact that it pushed me way out of my comfort zone, I did it anyway. I just knew I had to.
This led me to do a massage course, which led me strangely enough to a Reiki course. I had no idea what Reiki even was, I had never heard of it before but something inside said I needed to do it. So I did. It was the best thing I ever did. The 21 day cleansing process after the course helped me to lift so much crap that I had been holding onto. I felt a lot of emotions releasing and I knew I was beginning to heal. I felt a bit better mentally and a bit better health wise so I figured this was a good thing and I should pursue it.
I also discovered my love for crystals at around the same time and noticed whenever I was playing with them I felt calmer and more relaxed. This intrigued me so I learnt as much as I could about them too. Slowly, but surely, I knew my health and mental attitude was getting better. I guess I should add here that I was grossly overweight, I suffered also from diagnosed endometriosis, poly cystic ovary syndrome, IBS and chronic fatigue syndrome due to the depression.
Now don’t think for a minute that I am going to spin some BS here and tell you my life changed instantly. It took me a good part of two years to change the way I thought about everything before I really noticed my life improving. I knew I had a hold on the depression but also knew that the slightest thing could tip the balance and put me right back where I started.
I spent a lot of time reading spiritual and self-improvement books during this time which also had a big impact on the way I thought. Wayne Dyer once said “If you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change!” This is what I did. It was a daily chore to be consciously aware of the things I would say to myself and to pull myself up every time I had a negative thought, (which believe me was about every two and a half minutes) and turn it into a positive. The great thing is, if you do this long enough it finally becomes a habit and you don’t have to be conscious of it as it just begins to come about all on its own.
Over the next couple of years I continued to do the Reiki self-healing and meditating and I read and listened to everything I could get my hands on as I could feel myself becoming happier and healthier. I spent a lot of time meditating on forgiveness for everyone and everything that had hurt me.
Then I realised something was not right, I had done all of this self-improvement but something was still off. Louise Hay then then jumped out of a book and said I had to forgive myself. Deal breaker right there! How the hell was I going to do that? I didn’t deserve to forgive myself after all the horrible things I had done since I was a child. Well that’s a whole other story but I did it anyway.
After I had got myself to this beautiful place of love and light and forgiveness and my health and weight had improved dramatically the ground gave way.
My ex-husband remarried and the shit hit the fan. I won’t go into too much detail except to say that unthinkable things happened with him and his wife that included my children and I spent quite a few years in court fighting to protect them. Years later and I am about to face bankruptcy from all the court fees and therapy and I had almost given up. I asked my guides and the universe in no uncertain terms, what did I have to do to stop this? I get this tiny little voice from somewhere behind me gently say “you need to forgive”. Like seriously, WTF! Hadn’t I just spent the last few years working through this? My reply in no uncertain terms was “I have”. Again I hear this gentle voice say “No you haven’t!” Damn I had to start all over. I began doing meditations morning and night to forgive my ex and release him to the light. One morning I felt this extreme peace wash over me and I knew I had finally done it.
Court finished up for the fifth time 2 weeks later and I was awarded sole custody of my children. It was finally over, so I picked up all the pieces and life began again.
Since then I have continued on my journey of self-love and healing and have been awakened to so many things. My intuition has continued to grow stronger the more I listen with an open heart.
This journey has not been an easy one and unconditional love and forgiveness are the greatest gifts I could have ever imagined. I know it is hard sometimes to see that everyone, no matter their actions in this human life, that their soul is a pure being of love and light. I can now see my ex and everyone else as this. This doesn’t mean that I like my ex or some other people for that matter, but I see that they are on their souls journey for their purpose and their lessons.
I know a lot of people say forgive and forget. Well that is total BS. You need to forgive for your own well-being not the other persons. And you don’t forget otherwise how you can learn the lesson. It is what makes you stronger and you will awaken and see everything in a new and treasuring light.
Since early this year (2017) I have had a constant thought to go and speak with my ex and take the book back to him. I knew there was a message there but kept putting it off thinking it can wait. In August this message was coming through on a daily basis telling me to go and see him. Life is hectic and I kept saying I will go but things kept coming up. Then I was sitting at my computer and I hear this voice say “You need to go now”. Well crikey I have learnt over the years what happens when I don’t listen to my guides so I set things in motion and two days later headed off on a 4500km round trip.
Before I go to chat with him, I politely asked the universe to help me get my message across with truth and love. I sit down with my ex and explain how the universe kept telling me to come and see him. I’m waiting for him to kick me out or blame me for something else and go off on a rant. But no… he just sits and takes it all on board. I tell him what I am guided to tell him. All is going well. Then I give him the book and tell him that one of my messages was to bring it back to him. He smiles as if the lights just went on and tells me he’s been looking for this book for a few weeks and couldn’t find it anywhere. Boom. There is it. He just needed the book. Nope.
After several hours of talking I then tell him with a very open heart……. that I love him, but I don’t like him. I thanked him from my entire being for everything he had put me through as it was what our souls had agreed on before we even came here. I explained my gratitude for learning the lessons of unconditional love and the lesson of forgiveness. He smiles and says he understands. I was pretty hard hitting with most of what I had to say as so many things had brought us to this point. I made it very clear that it must be important for him to listen as the universe had sent me all this way to wake him up. He then told me he had been asking the universe for a sign but never expected it to be me. He said he guessed they sent me as I was the only one who would be honest and blunt enough to get through.
I explained to him that if he learned the lessons he came here to learn he would repair the damage and rebuild the relationships he had lost with his family, friends and with his kids. We continued to chat later that night and when I knew I had said all I needed to say something strange happened. He gave me a hug and with heartfelt gratitude he thanked me for coming and told me it was what he needed. Definitely not something I would have expected.
This little voice then says to me “your soul contract is complete. Your job is done. You can go home now.”
My drive home was so enlightening. This road trip was just as much for me as it was for him. I know with certainty now that I have finally mastered the unconditional love and forgiveness. The euphoria I felt within was astounding. I have had many times where I have felt this throughout my journey, but now it is a permanent feeling. The messages were coming through so clearly and so fast. Driving home I knew what I had to do.
My job here is to awaken the people who are searching for something more or who are hurting from their past. To help as many people as I can understand the importance of forgiveness, not just for others but most importantly for ourselves. To teach about unconditional love as that is what we are at our core. To appreciate the lessons that come our way, no matter how hard or painful they are. To have gratitude for every single day.
These are the greatest gifts we can give ourselves and by doing that we are also giving these gifts to those around us. Through this we will find that place of humble love and connection to our true self. That feeling of peace within that feels like home!
Let’s all spread the love together.
