Shayleen Liguori , manager of Dreaming Goddess in Poughkeepsie, has launched a new charitable business, Hour Hearts, to help local people in need. “Dreaming Goddess strives to support and give back to its community, and Shayleen embodies the store’s mission— not just in her daily interactions with customers, but also with her new business,” says store owner Rhianna Mirabello.
Liguori’s handcrafted manifestation bottles, called hOURglasses, feature the design of a double-heart hourglass. “The thought is that one heart is my heart, one heart is your heart, and together it is ‘hOURglass,’” she explains. “Each bottle comes with a set of intention cards. To manifest a vision, you place a card in the special holder suspended inside the bottle and burn the included tea light on top. Also included is a meditation bracelet to wear, to bring mindfulness to your vision.”
All proceeds are donated to someone nominated through the community, to help in whatever way is needed, she says. “Maybe that help will be money for medication or food that they can’t afford. Maybe the help I can provide will be giving my time to someone who needs a ride to an appointment or support group, or to a church, synagogue or mosque. My mission is to help others—hour by hour, one hOURglass at a time.”
hOURglasses cost $20 and can be purchased at the Dreaming Goddess, located at 44 Raymond Avenue, or at DreamingGoddess.com.
