Today we’d like to introduce you to Brooke Raphaelle.
Hi Brooke, so excited to have you on the platform. So before we get into questions about your work-life, maybe you can bring our readers up to speed on your story and how you got to where you are today?
My journey began with an onyx crystal. I had just moved to Los Angeles, CA. Everything and everyone was new. I thought I knew what I wanted and who I was up until this point but leaving home brings up uncertainty. I learned that onyx is a crystal that helps guide you to become a master of your own destiny, it grounds and protects your thoughts and helps you move towards the positive goals you seek. At the moment, I wasn’t sure where this new journey was going to take me but I felt connected enough to the crystal that I knew I should keep digging for more knowledge. I wrapped it in copper to wear for myself and a dear friend encouraged me to create what is now the blossoming business I have today.
Through my own spiritual, mental and emotional journey I discovered methods that helped me feel like I was in my prime all the time. I found that I felt my best when I took care of my thoughts, my body and my health in intimate meetings with the most important person in my life….me. How I feel on the inside reflects what I say and do on the outside. My goal is to become the highest version that I can be for myself, my friends and family. I desire the same for you.
Ritch Magic has grown into a metaphysical shop that focuses on chakra balancing, meditation and affirmation through self-care. Providing a one stop shop for handmade crystal jewelry, affirmation candles, crystal infused body products and more.
Can you talk to us a bit about the challenges and lessons you’ve learned along the way. Looking back would you say it’s been easy or smooth in retrospect?
If I had to name an obstacle along the way it would be being new to building a business. It’s the doing all of the steps yourself. Finding the right information for the field you’re going into. Building a product and testing at the same time that you are building your Instagram and website. Managing all of your back of house information like profit margins, taxes, etc.
You could probably name all the things that go into building a business and I could say it was hard. I would also only say this because anything as a novice could be difficult. What I know is that I wouldn’t change any of the things I learned along the way. It made a great businesswoman out of me and now all I do is search for more knowledge on how to become better at what I do everyday.
Alright, so let’s switch gears a bit and talk business. What should we know about your work?
I am most proud of the connections I make doing this type of work. I get to have a personal experience with each person, get to know more about them and honestly meet the purest part of them. It’s a beautiful experience to be a part of. When people shop in person, I encourage people to encounter themselves. They get the chance to tap in and listen to what their own spirit is calling out to and choose the product that will help them press further into the greatness and balance in the inside of them. To be a guide is an honor.
What makes you happy?
My family and loved ones, God and my faith, peace of mind, freedom, dance, art, culture, my dreams and desires, my business and my future. All of these things have huge possibilities in my life. They are where I pull love from and hope to pour more love into.
