I am so blessed to have Aislinn, owner of Amethyst Dreams, as a friend in my life! She has been one of the driving forces behind my success as a performer at Heartland, as well as a merchant there in years past.
The concert on Tuesday night, and the workshop on Wednesday night were both small & intimate, and fun was had by all. Special thanks to Angel & Randal, who also attended this concert, after already attending on Sunday elsewhere!!!
For those who missed out, and to those who have never checked out “The Crossroads” and Aislinn’s store, you really need to get down there! Besides being a New Age / Metaphysical store, it’s a Healing Center! They offer massage therapy, reiki, psychic readings, and a host of other services!
The Crossroads area is very artsy, with a bunch of art galleries, and cool stores. The Grinders deli is delicious and has an amazing “Gouda Potatoe Casserole” which I couldn’t get enough of.
“Amethyst Dreams” is located directly across the street from “Grinders” at 412 E 18th St, and the entrance is on the side of the building.
They have an eclectic array of merchandise, from Shamanistic to Wiccan jewelry and clothing, many of which I have never seen anywhere before, and many other unique odds and ends.
Amethyst Dreams DOES do mail order, so you may want to ask for a catalog.
I spent some time with Aislinn on Wednesday, sharing with her how to use Twitter, email marketing, etc, so make sure you find her Twitter feed and befriend her! Just search for Aislinn Firehawk, and tell her Alexian sent ya. She is going to be sharing healing thoughts and tips on an on-going basis, amongst other valuable advice.
I also spent some time doing a video walk through of the store, and plan on mixing a YouTube video for her. It’s the least I could do after all that she has done for me over the years.
Thanks for hosting me Aislinn! May Amethyst Dreams continue to grow in the Light of the Lord and Lady.

… When I rounded the corner to the shop, I saw a very large RV BUS!
She is such a sweetheart to provide such an amazing place for me to sleep in while I’m in town!
If you are coming to the concert tonight, our the Magickal Voice workshop on Wednesday night, you’ll see what I’m telling about, because it’s parked right infront of her Amazing Shop!
Amethyst Dreams is located at 412 E 18th St, Kansas City, Missouri, currently (at least this week) behind the big RV! Lol!
Yesterday (Sunday) was a big day for me. I got up and had breakfast with family in southern Missouri, then said my goodbyes, and drove north to KC. Upon arriving at Mystic Treasures, I immediately set up for the Magickal Voice workshop during the hottest part of the day… It reached 100 degrees!
The workshop went very well, and you could tell I had their minds working on how they were going to apply it to their practical lives.
The concert was later that evening and was blessed by a family of 3 who traveled over 3 hours to be there and meet me, Marcus, Mitch, & Lynn.
Also in attendance was Angel & Randall, Alexian’s self appointed biggest fans!
It’s HOT here in Kansas City! It’s hotter here than it is in Florida! So even though the concert was cool, I was soaked with sweat by the time we got all the equipment loaded back into the car.
Thanks to all that attended, including Dawn, & Carl. By the way.. Dawn, thank you for my spontaneous reading!!
A heart felt thanks to Penny & Leann for hosting me in their beautiful store, and special thanks to Marcus, Mitch, & Lynn for driving over 3 hours to come see me!
Eternal Hugs to Angel & Randal!
Later, I drove into downtown Kansas City to Amethyst Dreams for my next gig. Aislynn was providing me an RV to sleep in during my 4 day stay in Kansas City. But when I rounded the corner to the shop…. (to be continued)

Today I taught The Magickal Voice workshop and also performed a concert in Montgomery at “The Mystical Treasures Emporium”. Phillip, and his partner Rob were sweethearts and provided not only the space, but an entire buffet spread of eats, treats, and drinks for free to everyone in attendance.
The energy in this shop is amazing! So comfortable and relaxing, you don’t want to leave. My cousin Mary who came to spend the day with me even commented that she can never relax, but the moment that she stepped into the store she immediately began to melt.
I also found out that Phil is a Reiki Master, and practices several different versions of it. I got the opportunity to vibrate with them in their Reiki healing room, which was a real treat!
One thing I’ve never seen before, were handmade Cthulu crochet masks! A local person makes them for their shop. If you are into Cthulu, you should mail order one from them! They are really neat!
A lovely woman by the name of Sandra came all the up from Destin, FL, and brought her sister Lynn, and niece. She said that she had to come to hear me sing “Cool to Be a Witch”!
Special thanks to Phil, Rob, Josh, and Mary for helping carry equipment in and out of the store.
If you are in Montgomery, make sure you don’t miss out on the energy that can be found at The Mystical Treasures Emporium! You won’t regret!

Met some really nice people tonight at Books, Beans, and Candles. One person, Barbara, I found out is a Devotee of Bast! Bast is my Matron Goddess, and I even wrote and recorded a song about her. We had lots too chat about, and I look forward to sharing and learning more with her.
Julia is a recent resident of Bham and is a Reiki Master. If you are in the area, make sure to check her out at: www.jreuter.com. She’s a very sweet soul.
Special thanks to Mitchell for having me. And also to all the nice guys that helped me carry my equipment in and out of the store.

I had a wonderful evening meeting new friends and hugging one or two long lost friends this evening at the concert.
It was held inside an art district area that used to be old warehouses by a railroad. All of the buildings have been renovated and brightly painted and turned into art galleries, theaters, and other types of creative spaces. I loved it!
I look forward to coming back and exploring when I have more time.
I’d like to thank the Pagan co-op that hosted the concert at “Divine Union”, and thanks to River for helping me organize it. A very special thanks to the very sweet Sheri and Iman for giving me a place to spend the night.
I snapped the photo after the concert on my phone infront of Divine Union. Left to Right: River, Sheri, Iman, Rob.

Today is my birthday and I’ve had a great one! There are literally HUNDREDS of posts on my Facebook from people wishing me a joyous day, and you all have made it one!
I am preparing to leave for the Phoenix Phyre gathering in Central Florida (Lakeland, FL) on Wednesday, and I will be there through Sunday. During the festival, I will be reading cards for people and also teaching one of my favorite workshops, “The Magickal Voice”. The workshop is scheduled for Thursday afternoon at the gathering.
Friday evening, April 8th, I will be debuting my new dance music along with some old favorites at my concert at Phoenix Phyre. The entertainment starts at 8:30pm with me hosting an open mic, followed by my concert.
If you can’t make it to the gathering for the full time, there are weekend passes available, as well as an evening pass from 6pm to 11pm for only $15. This includes my concert! So come out and see me!
For more information about Phoenix Phyre, please visit: http://www.phoenixfestivals.com
If you do plan on coming out to the concert, or if you just want to have some fun… check out the new line dance that my dear friend and covenmate, Ayanna, created for my birthday! It’s for my dance remake, “Cool to Be a Witch 2.0”!
I have posted the video right here on my website under Videos, or you can always go directly to my YouTube site at: http://www.youtube.com/lordalexian
Spring is here, and I’m ready to travel! I’ll be calling you all to set up concerts (and house concerts as well) all around Florida during the months of late April, May & June!
Then I’m already starting to plan a tour all the way up from Florida through the MID-WEST and back during July! So if you live in Northern FL, Georgia, Alabama, Tennessee, Kentucky, Illinois, Indiana, Arkansas, or Missouri, etc please contact me! This is your chance to get me to come perform live for you and your friends!
I am also contemplating a tour UP the East Coast all the way North in October! What Witchy pleasures await me up there?
Don’t be shy! Contact me… I don’t bite…. too hard. (Unless you want me to!)
