You Never Knew You Needed a Crystal Wand. Until Now.

You never knew you needed a crystal wand. Until now. But once around the Rocktacular! Crystal and Gem Show and you’re waving one like Harry Potter. Why? Because it’s cool. Because there are nearly 50 locally-owned businesses all there to immerse you in healing and self-care. Empowerment and health. Treats and gifts and goodies and keepsakes. Crystal wands are just the beginning. Blow your consciousness wide open, honey!


It gets better. The show has free admission and it’s at Club 90 in Sandy, in case you want to grab a bite or have a tasty adult beverage. The next Crystal and Gem Show is Saturday, February 15th from 11 am to 5 pm. In the meantime, get to know more about the Living Light School and all the courses designed to educate and empower you – definitely check out the Crystal Healer Certification.


Kicking off the new decade with Laurie and the Living Light School is a perfect way to change a negative dynamic- it’ll give you a chance to speak with like-minded people and learn more about the healing arts. Have a reading with one of the glorious psychics, or get a massage. Do all the self-care stuff you told yourself you were going to do, even though you totally knew you were not going to do it.

Todd & Erin’s Shop Locally Guide: Living Light Institute

Do you realize we’re about to enter into an entirely new decade? It hit me the other day that 2020 means stepping into a new decade and leaving the old one behind. Is there emotional baggage you’d like to leave behind?


I’ve been fascinated with Laurie Nielson since learning more about her school – the Living Light Institute of Energy Healing Arts. For the last ten years, she’s been teaching here along the Wasatch Front about crystal energy and healing. As her influence has spread, more and more people are flocking to learn about the metaphysical and spiritual way to self-awareness and healing.


“I’ve been offering classes for those new to crystal energy,” Laurie says. “We teach you how to nurture your intuitive side, to explore and develop that part of you. It’s important to learn about natural healing and your personal energy.” The Institute’s grown to the point that Laurie’s now offering Crystal Healer Certifications. 

In fact, if you’d like to take the course and bring a friend, Laurie’s offering buy one class, get one half off when you mention Todd & Erin. Also, 10% off all Laurie’s beautiful gems, crystals and classes when you throw in the Todd & Erin thingie.


Another exciting part of Laurie’s offerings is her monthly crystal and gem shows. Admission is always free, and along with the dazzling array of crystal and gemstones are vendors offering nature-based products. “We have everything,” Laurie says, “from jewelry, lapidary, decor, bath & body, products for your pets and CBD products. There’s psychic readings available, massages … we want everyone to feel comfortable and learn more about how they can empower themselves.” The next show is on January 18th at Club 90 in Sandy.

You can find Laurie on Facebook, her website, and on Instagram.
