Bubbles are just delightful, you know?!
I’m not surprised that the delicate, weightless, shining capsules known as bubbles have formed the visual iconography for lots of meditation, goal setting and intention-sharpening techniques.
I have bubbles on my mind today as I msake maps of projects and wrap ideas into their own bubbles…! so get ready for three somewhat magical ways to use the gorgeous bubble in your life to manifest things you want… to sharpen your intention and even to help others (the best one!) ! Continue Reading…
Airplants defy the limits of gravity, they grow in somewhat magical self-sufficiency, and for all of you who have trouble growing greens at home, these alient-space-creature plants in so many shapes sizes and varieties are for you!
Deeply inspired by the genius of Josh Rosen, the Air Plant Man, and his architecturally streamlined airplant frames (pictured above, you can find them HERE), the airplant can be a piece of art! Continue Reading…
When I made a promise to a friend that I’d get my sleep schedule back on track to do 6am walks, I did it with a bit of a pause inside. You know that feeling of speaking in aspiration. I mean, I want to get up at 5am again every day… but given the fact that three cross country trips in a row have me up until 12:30 or 1am, the idea of 5:00… well… it’s a very great idea.
Determined to make it work- these 6 or 7 mile morning walks are miraculus for my whole world- I decided to find a way to make this work.
What I found is the life-hack that I am going to say isn’t as much a hack as it is a great idea. Even Traditional Chinee Medicine loves this idea.
Ready to get up earlier, avoid serious jetlag and possibly create habits that support more rejuvenation?!
Inspired by THIS list of 31 questions from Lifehack, these are some awesome journal prompts, ideas to meditate on, or simple yes-no questions that have a lot of velocity.
Funny: question 1 and question 9 are the same question.
Are you doing what you truly want to do?
I’m not sure if it was a typo, but it’s the one question that pushes things forward in hyper-speed when I really answer it.
Everyone I know needs to stop from time to time and see where they’re at- (especially me!)- and these compelling (albeit simple) questions have a way of uncovering the stuff that gets missed in the whirl of life every day.
Here’s to asking the hard ones… and letting the answers move you forward! xoxo Dana

The ubiquitous dreamcatcher of a wildly boho home may be perfect for your home, too.
But… what do they do? I always wondered, as I admired them, how they are supposed to “dream catch”.
DreamCatcher.org explains in a vibrant way the meaning and function of the dreamcatcher:
“Native Americans believe that the night air is filled with dreams both good and bad. The dream catcher when hung over or near your bed swinging freely in the air, catches the dreams as they flow by. The good dreams know how to pass through the dream catcher, slipping through the outer holes and slide down the soft feathers so gently that many times the sleeper does not know that he/she is dreaming. The bad dreams not knowing the way get tangled in the dream catcher and perish with the first light of the new day.”
With their gorgeous storied history and intricate beauty that mixes the hard and soft, the woven and material, I think of these as great vibe decor x 1000! Continue Reading…

Whether it’s a change of season, a holiday or a vacation… or even just a period of transition… there are times where we move into a mode of change and wanting more of things we feel we lack.
Whether it’s more sleep, more adventure, more romace, more creativity, money, vitality…
In my view of space and energy, having more of anything means more energy in more balance.
The great news is that you probably don’t have to work harder if you are already working hard to have more of what you want. But… you might want to dare to energetically align yourself much more… in totally pleasant ways!
