You ever feel like you're having a string of bad luck and just want to stop the process. You need help but not with mundane tasks, you want to change up your juju also known as luck. Well we fully believe that before you look good on the outside whether thru beauty or wardrobe you must feel good on the inside.
A few things you can do...
Visit a hippy dippy store.
Here's our 2 L.A. faves
House of Intuition is literally an old house on a hill in Echo Park. When you walk up the steps and hear the chimes you know you are in the right place. When you go in and walk around I think you will instantly feel a vibe. The warmest people ever work there and they leave you alone to browse. HOI also hosts meditation sessions, chakra cleansing, tarot readings etc. if you want to go beyond burning a little sage.
Don't get freaked out when you see the mini shrine in the corner dedicated to the previous house owner. It's a portrait with a glass of water in front of it and if you look too long the water bubbles which apparently is his spirit.

Mystic Journey bookstore is the west side's answer to House of Intuition with some slight differences. It's more of a bookstore filled with all things mystical, crystals, mala beads, but not too many things you burn like sage. The unique thing about Mystic Journey is their psychics on staff, our personal choice is Sylvie Steinbach who we feel is the real deal but there are several to choose from. The experience at MJ is awesome and it has less of a spiritual feel until you enter the private rooms for a reading which we highly recommend! Plus Abbot Kinney is just the coolest block ever to explore in Venice.

So you got to the stores but there's so much stuff right? Here's some basics you may want to pick up to start balancing that energy:
Quartz is known as the master healer and can be used for any purpose. Buy crystals according to the results you wish to see in your life, the staff will be a great guide.
Green aventurine is a great one because it helps us to attract abundance by encouraging us to feel more deserving of good things in our lives.
Amethyst helps us to feel less anxious and more resistant to negative thoughts, feelings and choices.
Moonstone helps us to feel more creative and intuitive.
Other crystal choices include citrine to evoke joy and rose quartz our favorite to help love and romance flourish.
Another good ritual for energy cleansing is smudging or burning sage or palo santo.
Essentially, a smudge ritual or a smudge ceremony is performed to correct the energy in a home, in an office, in an object, or even in a person. This is accomplished by burning sage or sage and a combination of herbs, in a focused, intentional way to cleanse out negative energy and to replenish positive, healing energy.
