What is a Symbala? The Symbala World of Lahrinda Eileen Lahrinda's Personal Symbala

Symbala World Emerges!

October 6th, 2009

 The gestation period is over and the butterfly emerges from her cocoon, wet and willing to begin a whole new stage of life.  As the butterfly dries and spreads her wings, a thing of rare beauty appears.  That is how this new website feels to me and it is my joyful intention to share it with you.

Just as the transformation of the caterpillar into a butterfly is all-encompassing, so these last 2 months have been for me, as well.¬† Today, October 6th, 2009, ¬†it’s official!¬† The website is now SymbalaWorld.com.¬†¬†¬†My email also reflects this change as you will see when I respond to your emails.¬† Don’t worry though, Creative Health links and email will be rerouted to the new locations automatically.¬† To complete the transformation, I also moved¬†to a new¬†home at the end of August!¬† So I have a new address, as well, although I kept my same phone number and am still available on Skype as before.

The Symbala World changes emerged because of a specific catalyst by the name of Michael Gribbin.  He came aboard as a collaborator, co-creator and techno-genius making this new Blog-formatted website possible.  You can appreciate the energies of this longtime friend in the Featured Symbala Archive where his Symbala was presented last month, September 2009.  He is also part of my Special Associates Gallery.  My appreciation of his talents and friendship are boundless!

Speaking of the Featured Symbala Archive, please pay a visit.  You will be amazed and pleased by the formatting which makes it at once easier for browsing and astonishing for the eye.  As a matter of note, one of the big improvements of the new website is easier navigation and less confusion.  At least, that was our intention.  As with all new endeavors, we are still improving and changing so your comments and suggestions would be so very welcome and appreciated.

With Loving Resonance,  Lahrinda

“Zazzled” – New Products in New Store

October 5th, 2009

More things to share about the new website.  In addition to all the wonderful formatting and organization of Symbala World, there are new Symbala products, too.

Zazzle is the name of a website which offers artists the resources to publish, promote and showcase their art  and art products in many forms.  I now have TWO Symbala Stores! 

  • My regular Symbala Store on this website offers original, commissioned Symbalas, Personal Symbala Dialogues with either Arlene Arnold or Peggy Smith and Symbala art prints in 2 sizes, large and small.
  • My new Zazzle Store offers your favorite Symbalas on regular Greeting Cards, Magnets, Coffee Mugs and more new products in development.

  I am so grateful to my friend, Deneen, who discovered and shared Zazzle with me. 

Cards, cards, cards!!!

Thanks to¬†Zazzle’s expertise and ability to produce high quality art products, Symbala World is greatly expanded.¬† The main products I’m offering through my Zazzle store are Greeting Cards.¬†¬† They’re produced on¬†glossy card stock and the colors are clear and vibrant, perfectly suited to Symbalas.¬† They’re 5 x 7″ and come with an envelope.¬† Not only are they eye-popping, but I’m selling them at a low price of $4.50 each (quantity discounts are also available).

Magnets, too!

I haven’t developed as many magnets as cards, but keep checking back because I’m still working on it.¬† The magnets are¬†3″ rounds, brilliant and perfectly suited to¬†this circular art form.¬† They’re decorating and raising vibrations on my own refrigerator and office filing cabinet.¬† Have fun with these for only $4.50 each as well.

How you get them on Zazzle

There are Zazzle Flash Panels showing Symbala products all throughout the Symbala Galleries.¬† They will take you to the new store where you can browse and buy.¬† ¬†Zazzle takes your orders, produces them and ships them directly to you.¬† If you have any confusion finding your way in the store, remember to look for the ‘Lahrinda’s.¬† Those links will always take you back to my main storefront on Zazzle.

Symbala Store on this website

This website still has its Store (greatly spiffed up, too) where you can purchase original commissioned Symbalas, Symbala Water Imprint sets and the regular 8 1/2 x 11″ prints.¬† The 5 x 7″ art prints are also still available there for as long as my stocks last.¬† Their price has been reduced to clear.

Requests & Suggestions?

When you visit my Zazzle store, you will see categories of cards that have little or no cards in them.¬† As I said, I’m still working on them.¬† If you go looking for any in particular and don’t find them, please let me know and I’ll make sure it’s added quickly and let you know.

Everyone I’ve showed the cards and magnets to so far are high in praise and impressed by the quality, as am I, or they wouldn’t be offered to you.¬† Go there and explore – you’ll love the way you can mouseover and click on them to see amazing close-up detail.

New Home for Me, Too!

October 4th, 2009

Recently, my life has been full of change and transformations.  I have been challenged to live my principles time and again.  Each time I do that, scary as it feels, the outcome always feels expanding and in resonance with my essential self.         

I was living in a happy and comfortable environment for over 5 years, not ideal, but very cozy and affordable.  My landlady, Bettie, became a good friend and supporter of my art over the years.  She turned 94 this spring and her health took a turn for the worse not too long after her birthday.

When she didn’t spring back after a few months, her¬†daughter decided¬†it was time to install a fulltime caregiver in my top floor sanctuary and I was given my notice on August 3rd.¬† Here was a challenge of the first order!¬† Bettie‚Äôs friendship was irreplaceable, but I had to find a new space for myself, my business and my very large movie collection.¬† I also loved and had to let go of the neighborhood and my feline friend, Pretty Feet (Bettie‚Äôs cat). ¬†¬†Here‚Äôs a picture of her in what used to be a favorite spot ‚Äst the back of my computer chair!


I was in a grieving process of letting go of so many things, near and dear.  But I also realized I had been given a gift, the gift of change which always makes way for new energies and experiences. 

August became a blur of memories, packing and searching.

However, by asking for what I wanted and working with the Law of Attraction a novel idea came to me – it was finally time to stop renting!¬† I narrowed my search to affordable mobile homes and within 2 or 3 days had found just what I was looking for.¬† I knew it was my right place because everything just flowed easily once I made the decision.¬† My friend, Madeline Gerwick, the ‘Good Timing Guide’ lady, was a help in so many ways, not least in her suggestions for good days and times for closings and signings.¬†

Friends volunteered for the moving part and I didn’t even have to rent a truck to move to my new home about 10 miles south in SeaTac (south Seattle area near the airport, but amazingly quiet).¬† It all got done in one day and even before my moving deadline!¬† It’s older and not fancy, but it’s all mine and I love it!¬† Here are some pictures of my ‘White Palace’ (thanks, Teresa).



This is my friend, Michael,¬†in the kitchen before I moved and here’s the kitchen after I moved in.



This is the living room window group that looks over a honeysuckle bush frequented by hummingbirds.  When I saw that I really knew I was in my right place.


There were many perks for me personally about my new place.¬† The joys of my own roomy laundry room, a regular kitchen with a full size refrigerator, stove top and oven, lots of built-in book shelves, plenty of extra storage, a covered carport and mail delivered right to my door!¬† Ah, it’s the little things that add up to a happy home.

With Loving Resonance,  Lahrinda

New to Symbala World: You can now find me on Facebook, which I finally joined. Also there is a way to speak to me for free on Skype, if you’re so inclined. If you don’t have Skype yet, here’s a link to sign up and join those of us who love the free calling and seeing (if you have a camera) friends and dear ones far away. I can now see my son and granddaughter regularly, even though they live thousands of miles away.
