Everything that happens in the universe begins with intention.  The sages of India observed thousands of years ago that our destiny is ultimately shaped by our deepest intentions and desires. The classic Vedic text known as the Upanishads declares, “You are what your deepest desire is. As your desire is, so is your intention. As your intention is, so is your will. As your will is, so is your deed. As your deed is, so is your destiny.”

It is my intention to help people manifest their destiny with a little help from mother Earth.  THE TALSAM is the fruit of this intention.

THE TALSAM is a small shop, with high quality crystal and mineral talismans.  Please enjoy my collection.

If you see something that you like, please let me know. I am always happy to interact and create multiple crystal orders at discounted prices. This saves me quite a bit of work, so I am happy to pass the savings on to you!

My Story

Julia Elders is the owner/founder of THE TALSAM in Minneapolis, MN.  She has dedicated herself to helping people transform their lives and to take charge of their personal healing.

Her hope is to support people along their path of self-discovery, ecstatic awakening, and deep connection to sat guru, the true teacher within, through the teachings of yoga, auyrveda and crystal energy healing.  She hopes that each person finds a more heightened awareness of their most true, divine nature. She is eternally grateful for the teachers in her life and their infinite inspiration.
