Are you ready to go after the big stuff?

Even if it means taking the first few steps, then the next few, there’s a certain willingness and openness that it takes to go for the big love, the big dreams, the big commitments.  I used to cringe when I would hear people say, “I’m not ready to take a risk…” or “I’m not ready for a family…” or “I’m not ready for love…” and I would cringe not because I didn’t believe them but because I would recognize that I had the same “Not Ready” feeling in myself.

If you’re in a place where you feel “not ready” a whole lot of awesome opportunity, time and greatness might just slip right through your fingers.

In feng shui, the not-readiness for things is very apparent in some ways and it’s more stealth in others.

But… I can always see as well as hear the lack of self-certainty and openness.  The great news:  it takes just a simple and exciting decision to start getting ready for the big stuff right now! Continue Reading…

While there’s a whole lot of troubling and heartbreaking news in the world, and there’s also enormous amounts of good news.  While I will never make light of a dark time- (everything- and every emotion- is valid and awesome and important to experience and real and true) – there’s a quality of a story that moves past this moment and colors all of life.  The tragedy can color life or it can be a turning point.  The big stories, the pervasive ones that we tell all the time, the ones that make a lasting impact- are usually the ones I can see displayed in people’s homes, their habits and even the way they talk about their stuff and their future.

We’re all living stories to some degree of another.  There are common threads of stories that link us all: archetypes that we share in common as part of the human experience.  (According to THIS little assessment quiz, I’m an Innocent Child inside and out!) We tell stories of what has happened in the day, in an argument, in a job, in life, in love… and we tell them from our perspective, fitting the story into our big story in a way that makes sense to us.

These ideas are accepted by psychology, by philosophers, by researchers and sociologists… and now, in more popular culture. Stories are a big deal.

Why not focus on the really magical stories every day?! Continue Reading…

Have you stuggled and sulked and wrestled and worried about all the potential you have that hasn’t been manifest in your days?

It’s all so common, or at least in my world, so you’re in very good company.

I work with hundreds of people a year who know there’s so much potential in love, in life, in art, in every day…and can’t seem to access it.

There’s no one key that opens the door to infinity of potential made manifest, but there is a common thread in everyone I’ve seen take their lives from stuck to soaring.  There are a few things that seem to be shared by all who break through.  And, strikingly similar in the folks that succeed and move forward and keep building their dreams: everything that is done is done with a spirit of FUN.

This Friday’s beauty pick is one that leans toward the guys as well as the girls: a hair texturizing miracle product that is divine.  I can tell you when I had a super-short and was raking a Tancho stick through it, what I would have done for this clean and effective hair goodie!  And now, it may be my shortcut to beach hair during the week when I’m not at the beach!  My favorite beauty gury and skincare wonder Chantal Moore shares Living Proof today.  Continue Reading…

energy muse words of wisdom

(i love energy muse!!!)

If you’ve recently had a tidal wave or a toranado or even a slow, gradual downlide of your world into stressful situations, I am so sorry and I do understand.  So well.  And I wish I was immune and wish you were, too.  There are days- often-  that I wish there was total immunity for all of us from disappointment, drama, heartbreak, trauma, anger and upsets of all kinds.

There’s nothing I would want more in a Utopian sense than a world in total, always, complete peace,  but in a real-life sense, it’s sometimes the tough stuff that can form the great stuff, the struggles that can give birth to the breakthroughs.

If you’ve been under lots of stress, you know how that stress can cause a home & life tornado of it’s own.  From financial flows drying up to dishes piling up, sleep and exercise stuck on the back burner, convenience food replacing the vibrant food, the dreams melting into the background and the worry thoughts on a repeat-loop overcoming the present moment— all are common.   You aren’t alone if you’ve lost track of your life for a while in an overwhelm.

I’ve had my fair share of these waves- big and small-  and there’s a lot of truth to the idea that these shake ups can be wake ups.  It doesn’t feel like a wake up when you come out of a health crisis, trauma or a heartbreak and see a pile of problems and disorder greeting you- I know- but it really can be.  Once you can see where things are out of order, neglected, not loved enough, not minded well enough… that’s when there’s a huge opportunity to rocket ahead.  Continue Reading…

The thing about lasting prosperity on all levels (from wellness to money to love and also creativity!) is that it happens in happiness far easier than in a panic, stress, oppression or self-denial. All that worry, thinking and pushing is the opposite of flow and it happens when we get into that headspace of disconnection.

Disconnection= thinking, not rested, intensive, crazy-making, tail-chasing, worried, complaining, freaking out…

Feng shui is all about connection that brings you wealth.

And I don’t mean to oversimplify and tell you that you’ll instantly switch to a new way of life and hit the lottery because you’ve changed your space.   I have done all of the above thinking, freaking out and crazy-making and it’s a part of the modern human condition and even celebrated sometimes (often) depending on where you live and the influences that are around. It’s not just an instant thing with an amulet or a charm and then, poof, life is new.

But, to simplify: connection is where the flow happens. There’s more joy, there’s more meaning, there’s not a need to swallow your truth, there’s a sort of trust in the universe and even work, no matter how challenging, is more in flow.

It’s not just the changing of space in feng shui that makes the change happen: it’s a deep respect for your own energy, your life, your priorities and what makes you come to life.

As that connection is made, life unfolds far more freely!  Continue Reading…

second chakra balancing

(omved)

When you’re creatively stuck, feeling unloved or not really that self expressed in a deep, deep way, you might have some energy blocked in the second chakra.

This somewhat esoteric seeming energy system of chakras that manifest as spinning wheels of energy down your body from atop your head to the base of your tailbone is a powerful system of healing from my own experience.

If you think about it: we’re all kinds of energy systems: spinning wheels, layers of light, interconnected energies that move us through life in an interconnected way.  Tuning up even one bit of energy can help you unblock energies in other places. For example, a simple adjustment in your mood and energy that’s creatively blocked could set your whole meridian system (the acupuncture system of healing the body) into balance.

If you want to go deeper into some second chakra feng shui, start right HERE.

Not only are the chakras fun and gorgeous to work with, the balancing effects of simple energy switches are often pretty instant to feel.

Heavy stuff is what I call the forceful, the dark, the cluttering, the confusing, the painful, the grief-filled, the stuff that’s just… heavy.

And if you’re carrying some of that around, you know it’s like walking with weights on your shoes sometimes, especially when it’s fresh in mind.  If you’ve got the heavy stuff at home, it’s like a minefield with things unhandled that need to be purged and explored and eliminated.

With all de-cluttering, it’s a matter of confront to some degree.  I know in my Catalyst Camp each year it’s a breakthrough when, finally, despite the temporary jolt of overwhelm that can pop up, the clutter becomes apparent everywhere, even where it was stuffed away and hidden and maybe even beautifully organized.

I’ve done the same with emotions and ideas, sort of squrrled them away, turned them into artful stories that garner lots of attention, and even verbalized the lessons and the gifts of struggle.

But you know what?  You can fluff up and prettify and express gratitude and sort things into gorgeous boxes and color coded masterpiece files… yet, I’ve found, if you’ve got emotions that are unhandled burried in that prettified, glorious stuff that are being denied, it’s still just as heavy.  Prettier, easier to talk about, OK to show to friends and neighbors… but it’s still a weight.

And those weights- no matter the package they’re wrapped in-  are what keep us from growing in real ways.  Continue Reading…
