As many of us practice social distancing and spend more time at home, we might find ourselves with a few extra hours to ponder. Taking stock of things, we might find ourselves wondering "What if...?"
Well, instead of asking what it would take for our dreams to become reality, what if we could make them happen? Enter manifestation! It's not hocus-pocus from a pointy-hatted witch, but the process of setting clear intentions and then visualizing your best life. As you tap into your creative being, you bring about the change you desire. Whether you're manifesting a soulmate or career move, mystical subscription boxes deliver the tools you need.
Inspired by their own life-changing manifestations, three entrepreneurs set out to share their spiritual tools and tips via mystic monthly subscriptions. Cratejoy sat down with the founders behind new boxes BeautyEverywhere, Psychic Envy, and Mystic Pup to learn about their experiences and how they're helping subscribers live their best lives. Keep reading to see how these subscription boxes can help you incorporate manifestation into your daily life!
BeautyEverywhere's founder, Karen, knew what she wanted from life. "After many life challenges, I wanted to find gratitude and beauty in everything, " Karen tells us. "To do so, I created spiritual tools and rituals that helped me manifest my best life." Since then, Karen has found her soulmate, had beautiful, healthy children, launched a multimillion-dollar business, traveled the world and recovered from a brain tumor diagnosis. She credits her wonderful life to manifestation and wants to share her tools through BeautyEverywhere's subscription box.
Each quarter's "Manifestation Kit" comes with mindfulness goodies to guide your spiritual practice. The boxes have themes like "I am love" and deliver high-quality, thoughtfully-curated products to provide mindfulness and spiritual awakening. Plus, the items in the boxes are 100% vegan and cruelty-free.
"Everything in the subscription box is handmade -- not just curated -- by me," explains Karen, "and designed for your new moon manifesting. Consider it your magickal moonbox of self-care and empowerment." Besides items like essential oils, vegan leather journals, and positive affirmation cards, each box comes with guided meditation tools from the BeautyEverywhere app.
Whether it's your first box of mysticism or you've got a 12-month subscription, Karen hopes her mystical gift boxes inspire your personal journey.
As a Doctor of Divinity, Marina called upon her background to launch Psychic Envy. "I want to help subscribers live their best life through spiritual practices," shares Marina. She explains the benefits of working with a gifted psychic: "They can help you gain invaluable clarity, give you advice and pass along their insight and energy to help you manifest your desired outcome."
Despite the positives of working with a psychic, Marina has a couple of concerns with the current psychic industry. "Engaging a gifted psychic by phone, message or email typically costs $20 a minute," she says. "Most people cannot afford truly gifted psychics, particularly on a monthly basis." And if someone does decide to hire a real psychic, Marina worries that they won't get the full experience: "The end result is that you cannot absorb what the psychic is relaying because you are too nervous thinking about what you're spending." She also dissuades people from visiting retail store psychics: "They are shopkeepers looking for the next walk-in and will be distracted during your short time together."
Enter Psychic Envy, the monthly subscription box to experience psychic power at home. "Personal tarot readings and manifesting are life-changing," shares Marina, 'My subscription box makes them affordable." Each month's box includes a personalized tarot reading done by a gifted psychic. The psychic also handpicks 1-2 inspirational items, like a selection of crystals, natural gemstone jewelry and more. "The psychic picks items to pass along their energy to the subscriber," says Marina. Psychic Envy packs $450 worth of psychic guidance and tools into each monthly box - it's a big bang for your buck, all delivered to your doorstep.
For years, Rain searched for a meaningful way to share her positive energy and joy with the world. Then, after spending decades in administration and retail-buying, she manifested her own destiny and launched the Mystic Pup subscription box! "I realized my own dreams," she says, "and started taking the steps to be a creative entrepreneur."
At the time of launch, Rain subscribed to a couple of different boxes for dogs, but craved something more. "I kept wishing for a box that could somehow combine two things that I love: alternative spirituality and dogs." And that's how Mystic Pup started -- it's superfood for the dog-loving soul. "This box is for people who wink back at their dogs, you know, just in case there is a secret code," says Rain.
Her first entrepreneurial step was to post positive affirmations with dog photos online and get feedback. Rain says they were a hit! "I posted them and ideas started flowing for different themes and fun things to include in the boxes." So what can you expect with a monthly subscription? Mystic Pup's monthly boxes include a mix of spiritual items for both humans and canines. For your pup, you'll get a natural treat and a fun toy. For yourself, you'll get 2-3 self-care goodies like aromatherapy essential oils, beauty products, bath products, tea, jewelry and more.
Rain chooses the monthly subscription box items and wants to help other entrepreneurs. "I love partnering with local artists and supporting fellow crafters," she says, "and will often include their handmade items." Rain provides the same thought into sourcing the dog items, too. "It's important to me to include natural dog treats, so they are all sourced from either the US or Canada and contain recognizable ingredients with no harmful additives," she says.
With each subscription box, Rain has one mission: "to deliver a pawsitive experience full of mystery and mystical things to celebrate the bond that we have with our pups." She's grateful for the support from fellow dog-lovers and encourages them to reach out with questions. "If something goes wrong with your monthly subscription, just let me know. I'll always be there to help you strengthen your connection with your dog."
What does the future hold for Rain and Mystic Pup? "Success is waking up in the morning to a bunch of cute photos of people and their dogs enjoying the items from the boxes," says Rain. "Seeing a subscription box inspire a mindful human-dog connection warms my heart." Her long-term dream is to be able to donate some of the profits to organizations for guide dogs and therapy dogs. "Those dogs provide invaluable healing and companionship," she says. We couldn't agree more.
