It’s a big month!!!

Valentines Day, Year of the Tiger, & Big Gay Out all happening on 14th Feb!!! Make it a day for loving our loved ones and yourself well, really pouncing into action, and having some fun out and about enjoying whatever the world has to offer and doing what inspires you!!! 

THOUGHT OF THE DAY! Though many of the Tempers and Temperaments that define you are inherited, you control how they manifest in your life!


LOVE LOVE LOVE …Couple of weeks left until the time we express nice things to our loved ones that perhaps on other days are forgotten or pushed to the wayside in life’s mad rush. It’s a celebration and reminder to make sure that everyday we appreciate those people in our lives who have brought so many good things to us, shared our lives and touched us so deeply.

You will find a selection of great Valentine's gifts at Y Be (or why not just a gift for yourself!) such as beautiful inspiring poetry for the soul, perfumes that smell so delicious, beeswax lanterns to brighten and warm any room, or a stylish obi-panel to spruce up for 2010.

See our Valentines day product gallery

Share your favourite LOVE or LIFE quote for Valentines day, they will be posted up on the Y Be website for all to appreciate! I will pick my favourite out of all entries and the winner will receive a FREE Heart key ring for Valentines day! Value $10.

Send me an email or place a post directly onto the website here.



Take the attitude of a Tiger since that is the year we are in and put things into action. Be strong, courageous and determined. Be focused, motivated and energetic without forgetting to be wise, compassionate and loving.

Y Be is celebrating the Year of the Tiger with NEW Tiger poetry and Tiger perfumes to purchase to help inspire you into getting yourself sorted for this big year ahead, 2010.

Remember this is a year for making things happen and accepting the challenges and doors that have already started opening for you! Feel the fear and do it anyway!!!

Just 3 lessons of drawing in a relaxed atmosphere helped to kick-start the art degree that I'd struggled with for almost a year! I can look at a blank sheet of A1 paper without trepidation; I now 'see' the many possibilities & can draw freely. Thank you, Jenny - for your patience in nurturing individual creativity & sharing your skills.

Jenny Walker & Guest Speaker

Throughout 2009, I had many people come into the shop to discuss their hopes, worries and dreams, and to seek advice, inspiration and reassurance for their own unique journey.

As it is such an ingrained part of the culture at Y Be I have decided to introduce the Inspire & Become Evenings, of which the first will be Friday 5thMarch. As an added bonus, Jason Hieb – a visiting Intuitive Empath from the USA will be our guest speaker.

The purpose of the evening at Y Be is to:

-          Help you to believe in yourself as well as believing in your ideas and desires.

-          Identify and achieve what your heart longs for, using the power within you.

-          Cease patterns, habits and reactions of the past that that no longer serve you, so you can be healthy, happy, fulfilled, loving and at peace.

-          As well as providing support for each other in a relaxed, positive, inspiring atmosphere to help manifest your dreams into reality.


Make 2010 the year to begin! Bring along friends, meet more like minded people and get to be part of the bigger connection we all share.


Please email to book in you and your friends. Only $20 each, including wine & nibbles.

Jason Hieb is also running a 2 day workshop if you would like to attend!

Energy Awareness and Vitality Workshop on March 6-7. See the attachment for all info.

Have a LOVELY February! And enjoy your Waitangi day weekend!
