When you walk through the door at Omni Presence, you are immediately embraced in a world of beautiful crystals, healing stones and the sounds of Native American flute that bring an instant sense of calm.
In the corner, there may be someone giving card readings or astrology instruction. In the classroom, people from the community are learning about everything from meditation, to jewelry creation, to drum making.
And behind the counter, owner Trudi Clegg greets you with a warm smile and a wide-open heart. She has a quick instinct for what people may need and she’s there to be of service.
Trudi always knew she wanted to start a business the beautiful Utah Valley and last year, with the help and support of her family and community, she made her dream a reality.
The name Omni Presence came during a meditation session. Trudi didn’t really even know what that meant. “I had to google it” she says with a laugh.
Trudi grew up in Utah and it will always be her home. She was raised along with her two siblings and had wonderful parents who took them out into the mountains and lakes of Utah as often as possible. She now has two grown children and three grandchildren.
“My family has always been a little bit on the rebel side.” Trudi says. “My parents taught me to be myself and live life on my own terms.”
Trudi has always been in touch with her intuition and feels a deep connection with the divine energy of our planet. Her meditation practice is important, and during her personal sessions, she would ask the question “How can I give back to others? How can I be of assistance in helping people on their journey and to feel a sense of unconditional love?
One beautiful day Trudi was driving in her car and got a very clear message that she needed to open a store. This was a complete surprise to her and something she hadn’t considered.
One year after that, the opportunity and the space became available.
“I wanted to create a space where people can come to feel great energy and to learn new things. I open the door and Creator does the rest.”
Omni Presence is filled with beautiful crystals, stones, local artist crafts, textiles, drums, jewelry and so much more. Classes are held on a variety of subjects several times a week. Meditation, Essential Oils, Organite making, and Using Your Intuition are just a few class titles.
Future plans for Omni Presence include a bigger retail space, coffee and tea lounge, yoga space, treatment rooms for massage, energy work and more. “My ideas are endless. This is a community space. A place where everyone is welcome.”
“I get recharged every time I come in this store. I love that it’s eclectic and has such a wide variety of items. This is the best place you can go in Orem to feel good and get recharged.” – Dennis
“Omni is So Fun. The vibe is amazing at this little store. I often get to stop in Breathe and add to my rock and crystals. Customer service is amazing, I even had help finding out what a stone was.” - Sue
“I went in today to get a reading done by Bernice and she gave me clarity on all of the heavy things currently weighing on me. I was so pleased and happy that I decided to have it done by her. My husband went in and got a reading done, after me. He also was very pleased and left with clarity. I highly recommend going in on a Saturday when she’s there, to see her!” – Brittany
“I absolutely love Omni Presence! Trudy is so helpful and her crystal collection is so beautiful. Big selection of beautiful crystal jewelry too and great prices.” – Sheryl
“I love this place. The atmosphere is excellent and the store is well-organized. All stones have info about them. And best of all, the owner is amazing.” – Benjamin
“I remember my first experience at Omni Presence. The energy has been created is so beautiful and peaceful. The prices are very fair. And the selection is unique. I remember that as I was walking out the door I unconsciously said "I love you" to Trudi. I got to my car and kinda giggled because my head was saying "you don't even know her and she does not know you". But my heart said "she shares your same knowing and we are all one". I am so grateful to have found this perfect space!” - Stacy
