I’m getting ready for the mindbodygreen #Revitalize conference and I have to say, all day I’ve been pre-revitalizing myself!
I do a load of “self-love” stuff every day, but sometimes a really rejuvenating time requires a little more that daily detox baths and energy healing.
Sometimes you need to immerse yourself in revitalization. Especially where you’ve been stuck.
Feeling fresh and wild and free is the way I like to live… but in order to be productive, to expand and grow and bring talent to the world, there’s a certain X Factor of sheer quantity that life brings for us to deal with, you know? Plus there’s the seeming randomness of so many things happening all-at-the-same-time, too.
Both things considered, it’s not unusual to be overwhelmed, even my good things. But the overwhelm of a moment can be flipped into far more creative control if you can take a breath and get things in order!
Right now I have three – almost four- big things happening at once. In fact, if I start counting there may be five or six. Plus everyday life. And then actual day-to-day stuff of working.
In the past I’ve had overwhelms both negative and positive… so great in fact that I wanted to quit on my actual dreams and run away.
That’s not a solution. Hiding, flipping out, avoiding… these’s never work out well.
But there are a few tricks I’ve learned to take an overwhelming situation and make it into something more managable. Consider them tips for a toolbox, ideas to try and, perhaps, a fresh road into a soution! Continue Reading…
Q: What could be better than ice cream in the morning?!
A: Ice cream made with rich coconut milk and toasted coconut.
This “ice cream” has very little sugar, an intensely rich roasted flavor and it takes all of a few minutes to make.
I’m extremely focused these days on not wasting any groceries, so I’m vigilantly watching expiration dates and checking the fridge to see what’s there for experimenting. The flaked coconut was open for more than a week… and I’m travelling for the next few weeks… so it was time to make something coconut. I always have cans of coconut milk as they are so useful. And the rest… is just so fun and delicious!!! Continue Reading…
I put crystals in just about every bath I take.
And because I take baths every single day except for when I’m travelling (*and even then, depending on where I am!) I have a real sense of what I love where crystals are concerned.
Not every crystal is bath-friendly. Some dissolve in water and some are just plain toxic, but the ones that are completely happy and body-friendly are my favories to interact with in the tub. Whether a placebo effect or not (* placebo effects actually do work!) I can tell you that I LOVE my crystals and they are so gorgeous that they elevate the bath experience 100%. So, today, my favorite bath crystals for you! Continue Reading…

I am not a staunch Law Of Attraction person.
I’m a karma person.
Thought, words and actions create my karma and my life.
What do you think about the Law Of Attraction?
The Law Of Attaction idea is that your very emotional thoughts attract to themselves that which is harmonious with them.
The thing is, the Law Of Atraction gets deep into one piece of the equation: thoughts. Particularly, highly-charged emotional thoughts and how they create a reality around us.
While I take the good and leave the rest (I am not a fan of all of it) where The Law Of Attraction, the classic self-help book reportedly channeled by angels (or is it a single angel?), is concerned, there is a deep emphasis on thoughts that got me interested again… and it is quite exciting!

My magic was gone.
That’s what I would sometimes, in a fit, cry to my mom on the phone…
“I lost my magic and I don’t know how to get it back!”
Ambition is a powerful force.
I had gone so far off the grid in terms of the life I thought I wanted that I had no idea how to get back to a place that felt good. I had nothing professionally that thrilled me to even remotely aspire to do. I was sort of lost, wandering and upset after a series of heartbreaks where I lost myself even further with each man I left, one after the next…
I felt like the suppression of life I was attracting (crazy people, feeling sick, mood swings, total instability) had broken my once-resolute and super-achieving mind and life filled with magic.
My will was shot.
Everything that I touched used to turn to gold.
I couldn’t “manifest” anything.
If your own ambition is less-than-stellar, today’s feng shui is for you! Continue Reading…
