Meet Shayna Cornelius and Dana Stiles of DayLuna in Santa Monica

Today we’d like to introduce you to Shayna Cornelius and Dana Stiles.

So, before we jump into specific questions about the business, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
We have been best friends for 11 years and always wanted to do something together, we just didn’t know what!

We started off by putting together birth charts for our friends and family and placing them in a box with crystals, candles, oils, and other meditation tools that we found best supported their charts! We did this for Christmas and birthdays as personalized gifts and quickly realized this was a business after people kept asking if we could make box sets for their friends.

We then started diving into learning everything we could about astrology and Human Design and the information we learned truly transformed our lives. We knew we had to share Human Design with as many people as we could because it was so incredibly life-changing (in a real and practical way) than anything we had ever come across before. Like seriously insane, and we couldn’t believe we had never heard about it before!

We then decided to offer Human Design charts and box sets so that people could have a tangible representation and book of their own energy and guide of how they can best thrive in the world around them. That leads to the podcast and doing readings and so much more coming down the road in the future!

Our mission is truly to help other people connect with themselves and find their purpose in life. We hope our boxes can bring in a tiny little bit of light and high vibes to help people connect with their true gifts and talents. We truly believe that when you begin to understand yourself, you begin to find authentic acceptance for yourself. When you find acceptance for yourself, you begin to find unconditional love for yourself. When you find love for yourself, you can give it unconditionally to others. It’s a beautiful cycle that begins with you!

Our goal in everything that we do (boxes, podcasts, readings or events) is to help you find the steps you need to take within yourself that will help you come closer to self-love and inspired action.

Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
It has been a smooth road actually! We started living by our Human Designs and the Universe sort of dropped all of this in our lap lol. We always say that we never saw ourselves doing this and that one thing lead to another and it all has just flowed from the beginning. The hardest part (of any journey really) has just been TRUSTING that everything happens for a reason and that we are on the right path and that we don’t have to know all of the answers. Surrendering to what feels good for us in each moment and trusting that it will lead us toward our highest good sounds easy enough, but is definitely harder to put to practice.

Please tell us about DayLuna.
We specialize in Human Design and Astrology and we offer personalized box sets that include your Birth Chart/Human Design Chart and several items (crystals, oils, candles, mala beads..etc.) to best support you on your spiritual journey. Each box is unique and customized for the person receiving it. We also have a Human Design Podcast and offer readings and events as well.

We are proud of our beautiful boxes and our podcast. The Podcast has allowed us to get to know so many people on a real and authentic level. People are listening to us and getting to know us from all over the world – so then when they reach out they feel like they already know us and they ask us questions as if we are already friends. We love this because we a constantly getting to know so many people on a deep and real level.

What sets us apart is that all of our products are truly personalized – not with a name or a special note like most companies that offer personalized gifts – but they are personalized down to having a custom book made that is all about them, a custom oil blend put together to support their personal decision-making process, and personalized crystals with meditation guides to personally support their highest good based on their chart. We take personalization to a whole new level while still being able to sell to large groups and mass markets. Also, our boxes are for everyone. They are here to help everyone grow and get to know themselves in a real way, a way that is supportive, tangible, authentic, and gives real-life tactics to put the information they are learning about their energy into daily practice.

If you had to go back in time and start over, would you have done anything differently?
If we had to start over, I would have talked to other companies about labels and what works in the oil bottle business lol! We spent so much money and time on labels that didn’t stick properly or had issues and it took us a while to troubleshoot. That is just being honest, haha! No one talks about labels and how to make sure you get the right kind and how to get things printed on the actual bottles instead… it’s a process.

Everything else though, has gone pretty smoothly. We are best friends on a spiritual journey together, surrendering to our unique selves and we are trusting the journey. Everything that has happened has been for a reason and we are so grateful.
