10 Ways Your Space Can Help You Build Your Wealth!

Adding Wealth Energy To Your Home!

Not a typo.  Wellth.  It’s the name of my dear friend Jason Wachob’s book about his journey in wellness and business all the way through to founding and building of Mind Body Green.  It’s also the theme of the year for the City of Beverly Hills – the City of Wellth- a campaign I’m super-honored to be a part of with old and new friends.

It’s been such a wild time that I haven’t been able to fully share this event with you and what I have learned that’s shining a light on my own habits.  Taking new vitamins, bed much earlier, foam rolling… longer breaks… more fun… more friends… more love…

And things are feeling better than ever!

There’s always room for more wellth.

First, what is Wellth? 

I love it.  I talk about it alot.  And if you’ve never heard the term before it’s basically:

Wellness + Wealth.

One without the other is not a fully abundant picture.  No one wants to be sick even if they’re rich, and it’s not really desirable to be physically healthy and live in poverty.

How many times have you heard the tale of someone sick willing to give away all their money for their health restored?

You don’t need to give away your money for health and you don’t need to sacrifice your health in the pursuit of wealth.

These are old paradigms I used to believe.  Changing them has been a matter of changing my priorities, being patient with myself, and learning how to revive myself if I’ve gone too far in one direction…

You won’t know if a new way of working actually works unless you give it a try… or you’re forced to give it a try!  Continue Reading…

Stress affects your brain in profound and often debilitating ways.  In turn, your whole body can be affected. It’s cumulative, it’s draining and… it’s often avoidable and always on some level manageable with some simple tools.

One of the most common- and curable, even if the cure is long-term and a deep commitment- forms of stress is financial stress.  It’s effects can linger like Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (more on this soon) because of how the chronic stress affects your brain.   It’s also not something that just affects people who don’t make a lot of money or are jobless.  A few (not all) of the wealthiest people I know have the greatest financial stress and cite their responsibilities, pressures and mistakes in management and spending as a cause.

I know, you might be thinking right now… “How is this something positive to talk about?”

It is, because everyone needs support when they’re struggling in this way, to take their eyes off the struggle and onto the short and long term solutions.

What’s most interesting in all of this is that stress does not increase prosperity (! quite the opposite!)  and it decreases our brain’s ability to solve problems and remain productive in key moments.

So, if you’ve been financially stressed or haven’t recovered from a spell of it quite yet, let’s explore some ways to take the stress out of the equation and pile on the wealth-making solutions.  Continue Reading…

We all know that a positive mind = a positive life.

But… there’s a whole lot of value in being able to confront all our stuff. Especially the less than helpful stuff that can linger like clutter in a closet, mucking up life.

I know it can be hard to see this stuff. Really hard. It’s especially hard when maybe you believe “you should know better” or “how could you be so blind to the facts?” or any number of recriminations you can cast upon yourself when your judgment isn’t 100% awesome, or your day didn’t go as planned or you made a big mistake.

What would happen if, instead, you got excited when you had this kind of thing happen?

What would it look like if you sought out those demons and blindspots and embraced them, maybe even accepting them and not even thinking of changing them? What if you sort of accepted that it’s all ok, even the bad days?

In feng shui, the real transformational stuff is really hard to get to when you have clutter and chaos in the way.  You can layer on the sage wands and crystals, but if you’re forcing a positive veneer over a whole lot of clutter, it’s not productive.  It’s sort of like slapping on a smile and painfully marching through the day when eventually you will need to cry and when you do you’ll wish you did it earlier because the day wasn’t working until you finally let it go.

Clearing what’s been stuck means confronting it.

And that’s where people may say “oh that’s so negative to talk about negative things, I can only talk about positive things…” or ” you should just think about something happy.”

While switching from a negative to a postive thought can turn a day brighter much more quickly, sometimes you need that dark stuff to come to light.

In the spirit of super-positive living, let everything, including the dark and negative, co-exist.  Let it all be.

You might just accept that sometimes you have an off day and that’s ok. 

You might recognize things that deserve your attention to heal. 

You might realize things are better than you thought they were. 

It’s so great to have awareness, a road to positive change and more self-love and way more connection with the world around us …!

How well do you work with others? How well do you collaborate?

Design is a collaborative endeavor.  What I do in feng shui is totally collaborative. Sometimes we try things and then try new things to find the awesome best answer to a challenging space.  I am not a fan of hearing that there’s just one way to do something (as the dogmatic parts of feng shui say that there are…), so I don’t promote those limited ideas.

In my online Camps- the Catalyst Camp and soon the Cash Camp– everyone collaborates that is up for the collaboration.  Given that I did not think of myself as a “group person” by nature, it took me so many years to approach making these Camps. Now, I’m a group person beyond all things.  These very dear groups in my life have been a personal revolution for me, and I owe every one of the members around the world so much for all the ways that they’ve helped me to learn and grow.  In awesome groups, I feel the synergy and acceleration.

I decided quickly that my role was more of a guider and less of a teacher in these groups; I wasn’t a fan of being “talked at” so I imagined that no one else liked it either!   The less “teaching”  I did and the more collaborative I was in each group, the more the big wins started rolling and the ah-ha moments arrived.

I didn’t plan any of the way this went… I just figured it out as it unfolded every day.

A few very educated and well-meaning people offered me unsolicited advice because they wanted to help me expand my business.  They decided that I was, in a nutshell— too available to people, too accessible and too little of a strong authority figure because I wanted to get to know everyone.

???

Yes, basically, I was being told that I was wrong to be myself.

It was an “interesting” critique. And, I ignored it fully because not only was it not advice I asked for, it’s the Tao of Dana on the top of this blog and without me living with my values intact, it’s just not worth doing it.

If you watch the video below, it explains in awesome metaphor and brilliant detail what happens when people stop working together and start trying to dominate one another, the folly that happens when they are dying to win but unable to play as a team… and just how inflexible most of the more “astute” professionals can be.  It also explains a whole lot about the power of trying things and figuring out the best ways to go as you go.

It also makes a good case for avoiding dogma and rigid thinking and it also highlights the power of synergy in creative teams.

I had no idea about the Marshmallow Challenge but I plan to do it one day very soon. I wonder if we can all do this online ?!

Even if you aren’t guiding a group or leading a team, it’s so super-invaluable to be able to creatively play and synergize. I might be a feng shui master, but I am always learning so much that’s new… and while I am very very far from a master guide, I’m always looking for ways to do all this stuff of collaborating and making together much better.

Let’s all learn to make super-tall global community of marshmallow towers together!

Motivation.  If you were raised like me you might have had that word tossed around as the hard-won “essence” of people who “succeed.” It was not a pretty word.  A sense of sacrifice and almost manical pressure was always mixed in.

Today’s feng shui is all about re-defining motivation.  It’s also about getting into the swing of an exciting kind of motivation that builds momentum in awesome ways!  Continue Reading…

Thinking for yourself and owning your truth is not always easy to do (at least for me it isn’t!)  in a world full of pervasive ideas, comparisons, pressures and speed.

Not to mention, the perceived competition and the lives that are airbrushed for us on Instagram showing only a highlight reel that we are meant to absorb as a reality.

I know, we are all bigger than that.  But… are we?

I’m not. I’ve fallen prey to other people’s projections upon me when I’ve lacked confidence.

Have you?

I realized the hard way that if we stop thinking for ourselves, creating for ourselves and living for our dreams and decide to turn things over to the masses, the “acceptable” paths, what your parents or partner or friends want you to be… it’s not going to work out well.   When you take on the beliefs of healers or psychics that are not your own but seem to have things figured out… when you step into a reality that compromises your own… that’s when things can get very messy.

I hear this hapening to people all the time, and I’ve lived this even recently in ways that have been very destructive to my forward motion.

Somehow, in some way, someone or some idea or some event casts doubt upon or overshadows your own voice.

Slowly or quickly, you stop living your own truth and take on the characteristics of another, of a group or even a whole life philosophy.

When you do this, even in subtle ways, you may find that your personal magic is depleted and life falls flat.  The happy affirmations and visualization and manifestation practices don’t work well, things become harder and hard work is all you can do because you’re trying to make something happen that you aren’t really passionate about, things don’t fall into place often, and when they do, it’s not fulfilling, plus, life feels like it’s never enough… and…

If you’ve been feeling like your genius has been clouded by other people’s opinions, projections or desires… if you feel like you’ve given your power over to these ideas, people or groups… taking back your independent thinking will be your rocket-ride forward!  Continue Reading…

Some people have no problem bringing in the abundance they need… but find it more challenging to actually keep what they make.  It comes in, and flows out, in and out… And after a while, even if you’re super grateful that it keeps coming in, it’s demoralizing that after making so much money you have nothing to show for it in terms of actual savings, investment or anything else!

When I talk about accumulating wealth, I am not talking about selfishly hoarding or miserly living (neither is really conductive to the flow of money that is easier and without stress!), but, rather, having more than enough of anything you need— be it actual money, energy, resources, relationships, self-care routines— to always feel stable and supported in every way.

Some of us weren’t given extra (or any) money, resources, opportunities or tools to go out and build a prosperous life, so if you’re not in a place with a huge abundance right now, you’re not alone and there’s no need to blame yourself or feel destined to always feel like you’re on shaky ground.   Also, there are a zillion great reasons why you haven’t been able to get ahead of yourself, even where self-care and sleep are concerned, to build up your energy reserves.

Life is not all a ball of perfection, but a few feng shui principles may help you start to think of building a reserve of all that you need as a normal thing to start right now, rather than something super-far out of reach.  Continue Reading…

When I first got a copy of Victoria Boutenko’s green smoothie book, Green for Life, I was blown away by the incredible nutrient statistics of what we commonly think of as weeds (you can read my whole round-up here from a few years back!) that she recommended to blend with a bit of fruit and water as giant smoothies every day.  If we harnessed the power of these “weeds” as a global society, I can only imagine how much our nutritional profiles would change?!  These are powerful foods that grow wild and are often overlooked for the classic spinach and the more recently popular collars and kale.

Dandelion intrigued me the most as I remember being puzzled as a child when people would spray their yards with chemicals to kill these sprouting flowers.  It felt wrong.  They were magic to blow when in their seed form, and as flowers they seemed so purposeful.

Dandelion is finally having its day in wellness- so no more rushing to toss them in the trash!  They are incredibly versatile in their nutritional power- almost every part of the plant has major healing properties.

Here are some amazing ways that dandelion is being used- as a tea, greens, and even the flowers are edible!!! Continue Reading…
