Hi, Im Atik, the founder and owner of The Charmed Spirit. While I have your attention, let me quickly take you all the way back to 1986. That’s when I was born! Born in New Delhi, India and raised near Toronto, Canada, I have an interesting perspective on spirituality and I want to share my spiritual journey which directly led me to my roots. Let me explain.
My parents and I arrived in Canada in January 96’. It was a tough transition due to the pace of life and the blistering cold of Canada. This definitely took some getting used to but a couple of years later we become accustomed to the Canadian culture and Tim Hortons! Presently, I am definitely more Canadian than I am Indian but I hold my Indian heritage, culture & spirituality very close to my heart.
Fast Forward to 2015, I started to have some health issues due to my poor eating habits, lifestyle, stress levels and not being physically active. This definitely took a mental and physical toll on me. So I had go back to the drawing board and change what I ate, control toxic & self-limiting thoughts and negative behaviour towards life. This lead me to become more self-aware than ever before and I started to manage my mental and physical health through spirituality. After a lot of discovering and research I realized I was a lot more connected to the world of Spirituality than I ever knew. Awareness of Spirituality in the Indian culture goes back to thousands of years ago. Yoga was discovered in India over 5000 years ago. Crystals have been used in India as methods of healing, attracting abundance and improving the quality of life for many years. Through such methods as yoga, meditation, crystal healing and overall self-awareness I was able to heal myself and completely change my lifestyle, perception on life and MOST IMPORTANTLY DISCOVER MY PURPOSE which is the desire to help people heal, improve their quality of life & help people find the same opportunities that I found when I needed to feel more connected to my higher-self.
As far as my career goes, I have been working in the world of Logistics within a corporate structure for the past 15 years. I have accomplished things in my career that I am very proud of and also very grateful for the people who believed in me and gave me opportunities to get me this far. However, for the past few years it felt like nothing more than a paycheque that I was earning. I was not helping anyone or making the world a better place to live in. So, after much frustration, feeling stuck and stagnant I decided to go back to my roots, turn my love and enthusiasm for spirituality into a service that I can spend the rest of my life doing.
With everything I had learned in the corporate world, with my knowledge & belief in spirituality I decided my path would start with The Charmed Spirit. The Charmed Spirit offers spiritually attuned crystals, jewellery, accessories and wellness products. The purpose of this store is to provide you with products that will make a positive difference in your life and that will add real and measurable value.
To me, a very exciting part about this is being able to team up with Pledgeing, which allows you to choose 1 of 11 non-profit organizations (drop down list box in the Cart page) that will receive a 10% donation from the profit of every single sale The Charmed Spirit makes.
I am focused and excited to take The Charmed Spirit to a worldwide audience and show that alternative, natural healing methods really do work and have been put on this earth for this purpose.
I will in the future, graduate The Charmed Spirit to a place where folks from all walks of life will be offered to receive life altering education and healing such as yoga, meditation & crystal healing which will eventually set the path to becoming their best version!
I hope you enjoy the store, and if you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask!
