Hello there! My name is Sara-Rae, and I am the artisan and blogger behind Spiritually Inspired. Thank you for visiting my sites and taking the time to learn a little bit more about me and my business. Please feel free to shoot me an email at email@example.com and say hello!
Originally, I grew up in Minnesota outside of the Twin Cities. After high school I went to college in central Minnesota, where I met my incredible husband Luke. On February 29th, 2016 we got married in Estes Park, Colorado. Our wedding was beautifully intimate; we only had about twelve guests attend. Shortly after getting married, we packed up our (very old) motor home and went back to Colorado. The mountains were calling our name! Now we live and work full time in Denver with our two adorable kitty cats.
My love affair with all things metaphysical started back when a good friend of mine suggested that we go to a store called Mind, Body, & Spirit in downtown Saint Cloud, Minnesota. As soon as we set foot in the store, I felt like I had come home. The store was modest in size, but everything inside sparked inspiration within me. Beyond that first visit, I spent many hours perusing the crystals, books, and incense, all while picking the brains of the employees working there. My husband even bought my engagement ring from that store! Even though I haven’t been to that store in years, it has set the standard for every other metaphysical store I’ve ever been to. Basically, I’ve been obsessed with metaphysics in an academic way ever since.
In the spring of 2017, I decided to become Certified Crystal Healer so I could learn more about healing crystals and how to use them. No regrets at all! Taking that course has really enhanced my personal spiritual journey. Crystals are part of my every day life now. My crystal collection has grown exponentially, and I feel like I have a personal relationship with each specimen. Using this valuable knowledge, I opened up my artisan shop where I sell handmade crystal healing jewelry.
Writing has been a passion of mine ever since I was a little girl. My mom still has some darling short stories I wrote back in elementary and middle school! When I was 16, I was Editor In Chief of our high school newspaper, and I absolutely loved it. From researching, to drafting, to editing, to publishing–it was all so magical. By the time I got to college, I knew that writing was going to blossom into my full time career. Blogging has been my main writing outlet for a few years now, and soon I plan to write books on spirituality, ascension, and personal growth.
Being able to combine all the things I love into one career path is so wonderful–I am extremely grateful and proud. I get to play with crystals, make wearable and functional pieces of art, study ascension, write about it all, and hopefully inspire other souls to explore their spirituality. Truly, I believe that having a healthy take on spirituality is equally as important as having a healthy body and a healthy mind. The human experience is meant to be so much more than just being fit, smart, and “financially successful.” Head over to my blog if you feel the same way (which I know you do, that is why you are here today reading this).
