My name is Les Thompson and I am the Mistic. This is the story of how the Mistic store came about. I was in Moab on vacation in August 2003 and as my wife Deborah and I were leaving town to go home to Evanston, Wyoming, I saw the “for lease” sign on the the building we now occupy. I turned around and called the number and we knew then that Moab was the location for The Mistic and we opened our doors on December 10, 2003.

This was the realization of a dream that began taking shape in February 2000. I took a vacation to Thailand to visit a long time friend named Tad. We went to the Bridge over the River Quai. Next to the River Quai is a graveyard for American soldiers killed during WWII and we decided to go and pay our respects.

As I was walking around the grave sites a little old woman came straight across the graveyard toward me. When she reached me she grabbed my hand and would not let go. She started talking to me in Thai and I could not understand a word. She began looking around and yelling out to other people that were in the graveyard. Finally a young woman started walking towards us. “What is this all about?” I thought.

The young woman told me that the older woman had a message and that she would translate for her. As the two women spoke the younger one looked at me strangely as she spoke: the older woman had been waiting for me for a long time. She had been told I was coming and was instructed to give me this message. I asked how she knew that this message was for me. They spoke together for a few minutes and then I was told that she had been shown my face. The message was that I had the power of healing and I must use it to help God’s children and that I must never use this power to hurt people. She told me that this was a gift from God and was His intent that this gift be used for good. She told me that many volunteer but that I was chosen. She also told me that I should live in the country close to nature and that I should not walk the path of the clock but to walk in the direction of giving. This was the path that was given to me and if I chose to walk it, that my name and teachings would be known around the world. With these last words she looked at me and all I could do was cry.

With tears in her eyes, the older woman let go of my hand and walked away. I asked the younger woman how long the woman had been waiting for me and she responded, “all her life.” This was a very powerful message for me and I cried for three days. That day in the graveyard in Thailand, I became “The Mistic.”

People have asked me what is a “mistic” and why I spell it with and ‘I’ and not a ‘y’. My answer is that ‘I’ was given this gift and it is what I need to do. I am a messenger and a healer. I was given this gift to unplug and balance the Chakras – the seven energy points along the center line of our bodies.

The Chakras help us perceive the world and its people as they truly are. When we are out of balance or have plugged Chakras we don’t send or receive the energy we need to correctly see and feel the world around us.

The Seven Chakras are the color of the rainbow:

Red is the color of the first Chakra which is located at the base of the spine. Also known as the “root” Chakra, the first Chakra keeps us grounded and connected to Mother Earth.

Orange is the color of the second Chakra which is located in the lower abdomen. This is the area of our sexual energy and also our “gut” feelings which can help us make decisions if we listen to the messages we receive.

Yellow is the color of the third Chakra which is located in the solar plexis area. This is the key to your soul and the place where energy is stored. When you pull energy from this area you can send out healing energy. This is where healers pull their energy from.

Green is the color of the fourth Chakra which is located in your heart. This is the area you use to send and receive love and compassion. When you have a heartache or sadness, the fourth Chakra will go out of balance or “plug” as an act of self protection.

Blue is the color of the fifth Chakra which is located in the throat area. This is the Chakra we use in communication and self expression.

Purple is the color of the sixth Chakra which is also called the “third eye” or intuition. This voice inside our head will guide us if we listen. This is the voice of our soul or higher self – the part of you that knows the answer – so listen!

White is the color of the seventh Chakra which is also known as the Crown Chakra. The Crown Chakra is our connection to the Creator and the receiving point for the never ending source of cosmic energy which the Creator has provided for us.

Think of the Seven Chakras as seven cups with interconnecting straws…when one Chakra is out of balance that cup will not fill so the other cups will flow into it to keep a balance – so may your cups runneth over!

In The Mistic, Deborah, Tiffany and I sell things that will raise your spirit and your vibration. We have items from telescopes to gemstones and incense in between. We are Moab’s official Orion Telescope dealer. We offer a free Citrine crystal to everyone that comes in our store. Citrine is one of two stones known to take negative energy and change it to positive. We can all use that!

Come into The Mistic for an introductory look around. We believe you will find something just right for you!

The Mistic is open 10am to 6pm Monday through Saturday. Beginning in May we will be open seven days a week from 9am to 7pm. We are located at 550 North Main, Suite F (next to Chile Pepper Bike Shop) – look for the healing hand! We can be reached by phone at 435-259-0958.
