JULY 22, 2020 – COSTA MESA, CA — Marking a milestone 10-year anniversary, House of Intuition, the leading powerhouse of the metaphysical wellness movement, is launching its first magical outpost in Orange County on Wednesday, July 22, 2020.
Located at 2930 Bristol Street in Costa Mesa CA, House of Intuition @ The LAB Anti-Mall will serve as a culturally inclusive, welcoming metaphysical oasis, providing the knowledge and resources you need to begin or enhance your spiritual journey. With magic intention candles, hand-picked crystals, house-blended anointing oils and all-natural herbs designed to activate all 6 senses, this progressive outpost will provide opportunities to see, touch, and feel House of Intuition’s powerful ritual and self-care offerings in person.
House of Intuition founders, LGBTQ+ Marlene Vargas and Alex Naranjo, partnered with counterculture pioneer, Linda Sadeghi, to bring their transformational and empowering endeavor to The LAB Anti-Mall. “We are excited to share our culture of intention, spirituality, healing and wellness in this vibrant community. This store was designed to be a haven for inspirational ritual tools to best harness every individual’s unique energy, no matter what your religion or belief system may be,” said Naranjo.
It is a well-aligned pairing. The LAB began its similarly trailblazing journey over 25 years ago in the heart of Orange County’s suburbia to combat retail monotony when it was upcycled from a night vision goggle factory to a creative mashup of commercial and creative endeavors that encompassed retail, art and dining. “We welcome the energy of House of Intuition to the family of LAB entrepreneurs, especially in a year of reinvigorating our roots as a community art colony. This couldn’t be more timely in a year of historic events!” said Sadeghi
In the vein of creativity well matched to artistic works found throughout The LAB, the storefront is symbolically emblazoned with a signature House of Intuition hand-painted mural depicting The World - a Major Arcana Card from the Tarot. At every store, the mural focal point drives the energy and specific blessing intended by House of Intuition for the community. This particular mural depicts an angelic being standing within a circle wreath, symbolizing protection and an infinite portal for new beginnings and shedding of the past. The World Card represents the channeled connection between the Divine (spiritual source) and the human experience.
“May we remind our community of our power to enact change and create possibility together with higher guidance from the spiritual energy living inside each of us,” said Vargas. “Our mission from the start has been to help others feel hope when they feel hopeless; to feel powerful when they feel defeated; and to bring intention within when people are seeking outside of themselves,” said Naranjo.
House of Intuition will officially open its door opening in Costa Mesa on Wednesday, July 22nd, timed right after the New Moon, which astrologically represents the beginning of a new cycle and auspicious possibilities. Social distancing guidelines and mask requirements will be protectively in place.
As a special feature for this store, HOI will have exclusive giveaways and hopes to bring their unique Aura Photography with HOI’s traveling Aura Camera Booth before another COVID 19 shutdown. The original Coggins AuraCam6000 utilizes vintage discontinued Fujifilm 100C film to capture analog polaroid-type instant Aura photographs with a signature "out of this world" feel. Stay tuned on social media as we announce Aura Camera updates. In addition, House of Intuition will be offering a curated Creativity Box containing signature altar tools, luxury Affirmation “I AM” and “Bless Me” Soy Candles, and early access to the newest collection of Intention Crystal Grids.
House of Intuition Costa Mesa will be open 11:00am to 7:00pm, every day, for in-store shopping. Virtual shopping appointments and curb-side pick up via online will also be available.
