If you’re looking for a new spiritual path, Love + Light Spiritual Emporium can counsel you through your journey.
Located in Oakland Park, Love + Light is a spiritual store chock full of incense, crystals, meditation circles, Reiki cleansings and special events.
“People who work here all have their knowledge and their fortes so people can come in and they can ask questions, and we can help inform them through their spiritual journeys,” said co-owner Christopher Johnson, an openly gay man who has been in the metaphysical practice since age 14 by a hereditary witch family. He is a Reiki master in the usui tradition and owns the store alongside co-owners Rosa Albert and Tiffany Coican.
“It's really wonderful,” Coican added, “because it doesn't matter what our personal beliefs are. If someone comes in with a question we are going to help them in the best possible way we know how.”
Coican is also clairaudient and teaches meditation. Meanwhile co-owner Albert is a Reiki practitioner and registered nurse with over 20 years of magical and spiritual experience. She is a certified crystal healer.

Every Saturday morning from 9 a.m. to 10 a.m., the three owners host a free Reiki circle — a group healing session involving the Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation.
They also host a free New Moon Clearing ceremony once a month on the night of the new moon between 8 and 9 p.m. The cleansing is a walk-through ceremony that incorporates various ancient traditions to “remove blockage on multiple levels.”
For those interested in joining an atmosphere of “peace and healing,” Mindful Meditation Mondays every week between 8 and 9 p.m. with a $10 entry fee.
In addition to their consistent cleansings and ceremonies, Love + Light also hosts events covering topics like hypnosis, magic, wicca, tarot and more. Customers can also seek out spiritual consultations and energy healing sessions from spiritual counselors with over 30 years of experience.
“All are welcome,” Coican said. “That’s our big thing: everyone is welcome. It doesn't matter what spiritual path you're on, it is right for you and that makes it right.”
“As long as you are pursuing your own spiritual fulfillment without harming others,” Johnson added. “Look through the lens that makes sense to you.”
