Meet Betsey. . .
Betsey Grady grew up in a household where imagination and day dreams were encouraged, so one can say she has been creating through visualization most of her life. However, it wasn’t until she turned 18 that someone gave her Shakti Gawain’s book, Creative Visualization, that she actually realized the power of meditation she had been practicing all along.
With her eyes opened to this gift, she began practicing various styles of meditation on a regular basis.
She was fortunate to live in San Francisco, CA for many years where there is an abundance of opportunities to gather with like-minded beings and practice. She has attended Zen Buddhist temples and meditated as well as non denominational church meditations. She has walked the labyrinth in the city, visited Green Gulch Farms and much more. While living in CA she attended Bikram yoga consistently, which too, like all yoga, is mindful and another style of meditating. And still today she journals daily letting her thoughts come and go.
Upon moving to Fairhope, Alabama, she realized that there were no shops offering items that supported the lifestyle she was accustomed to, so as fate would have it, she opened Rosie Blu on Fairhope Avenue in the early winter of 2007. The clientele steadily grew, despite the economic hardships the Gulf Coast encountered over the next few years. Rosie Blu became a destination store for everything for the free spirit, for the joy in life, for the peace of mind.
Soon Betsey also missed her group meditations that she attended in San Francisco, so she decided to create a group in Fairhope for meditation. She knew it was a bit courageous to organize a group as well as offer to lead it; however, that is exactly what she did. She seized the opportunity to introduce sessions at her shop, Rosie Blu. The reception for group meditation was immediate and she had to seek other locations to hold more people. Eventually she opened Rosie Bluum for this specific purpose.
Rosie Blu has since been merged into Rosie Bluum and in 2018 to Lotus Bluum. While she no longer holds meditations at this location, you can find her in and around the Gulf Coast sharing in other centers along the way. Some of her Guided Meditations can be found on You Tube and we encourage you to follow her channel. She is also writing an extensive collection of her visualizations and meditations for those seeking even more exercises to do at home either individually or within a group setting. She also launched "A Liquid State of Mind" Meditation At-Home program, which you can access here and become a member. She can be contacted directly for personalized meditations and she is available for private, group and work place environments.
Betsey has been meditating for over 20 years and has found the easiest way to share this with others is through leading guided meditations. She practices embodiment as well as visualization and is expanding into Metta and Mindful practices as well so that all styles can be incorporated in some way. It is her true desire to teach people the power of “going within” so that, through self awareness, there can be more peace in the world.
Betsey also has a rapidly growing clientele of those seeking guidance through the Akashic Records and attributes her ability to connect clearly to her years of meditation. She finds more and more that people are valuing the guidance to the degree that they are replacing traditional therapies or, at a minimum, including with, and finding immediate results through positive life changes. She is amazed daily at the transformations she has been able to witness in others.
"It is positive and uplifting work and to be able to see the changes happen in real-time life experiences is nothing short of astounding and humbling. We are always being lovingly supported, all ways!" -says Betsey
