Sacred Earth Metaphysical is a new store in downtown Courtenay that offers a variety of products to celebrate and nourish the human spirit — or, in the words of owner/operator Sheila Toni — to help people realize their potential and abilities.

Chimes hang from the ceiling, and displays are loaded with crystals, gems, jewelry, incense, candles, anointing oils, statues, books and music.

“We’re all spiritual beings having a human experience here,” Toni said. “That’s what I represent. These (items) are all tools to help them.”

Toni moved to the Comox Valley in September from Moose Jaw, Sask. where she had operated a business for six years.

A move to the West Coast was inevitable — it was just a matter of where and when.

“The when and where happened when I came to visit my friend,” Toni said. “I was drawn to this area. I feel very blessed to be here.”

So far, business has been kind to Toni, who is feeling welcomed by the community.

She notes the presence of another local store selling similar products, but says the “vibration” is what matters.

“Each store is different to its own. It’s really about the vibration that the person themself carries. That determines what your store is about.”

She hosts a grand opening at the store Saturday, Dec. 20. Blue Moon Estate Winery will be on site from 1-4 p.m.

An intuitive healer and clairvoyant named Anett will also be on hand from about noon to 4 p.m. She will be available for readings.

Sacred Earth Metaphysical is located at 475 Cliffe Ave. across from the Sid Williams Theatre. It is open seven days a week.
