10 Feng Shui Ways To Attract Wealth!

Declutter Your Life For The Best Fresh Start Ever!!!

accept who you are

Yep:  you don’t need to change who you are.

Not one bit.

You are exactly perfectly unique and awesome.

All the things that self-help, self-improvement and “transformation” can address have NOTHING to do with changing who you are.  And anyone who says that you need to change who you are is dead wrong.

You are not broken, you’re not less than anyone else and you’re not a mess.

Circumstances, habits, emotional states, energies, thought patterns and environments around you may be less than awesome… and those things can all change.

But you already are great. And it’s so important to start there.

If you don’t believe that, you’ll not “trust yourself” enough to clear the clutter.  If you don’t see your value, you may not think you deserve to make decisions that clean up the house, the fitness routine, the schedule, the toxic relationships.  If you’re not clear that you- and your very unique way of seeing and feeling everything- is totally OK, you’ll likely have a hard time following through on the things that make you feel alive and build your uniquely abundant life.

Today, it’s all about being 100% ok with you at your core. From there, the mirror of life on the outside will shift dramatically to reflect all your greatness.  Continue Reading…

(you can get organic Tulsi from Etsy) 

I first saw glorious fields of Holy Basil and experienced it live during a visit last Summer to Gaia Herb Farms in North Carolina.  It was something breathtaking.  I felt like there was a field of light surrounding the vast expanses of purplish green plants, and in the 18 months to follow I learned so much about the ways that Holy Basil (also called Tulsi) can be used to take the stress out of life.

Today’s idea for a small lifestyle shift is a cup of Tulsi tea.   Continue Reading…

the power of kindness from The Tao of Dana

I am still floating from this magnificent gesture of kindness.

I’ve shared it almost everywhere, but I needed to make sure it hit the blog today so it would be shared in the broadest way possible.

These gloves changed my life. Continue Reading…

using the law of attraction wisely

(achieve always)

Visioning a new future is a daily, step-by-step adventure in mindfulness.  I always call it an adventure because it feels very new to change your thinking, your words, your habits…even emotional patterns.

That newness can be, in itself, something to adjust to in order to grow and evolve.

Since the early part of the 1900’s- believe it or not- people have been talking about and writing about the Law of Attraction.  It’s nothing new to you I’m sure.  But this vibrant reminder and very simple steps to turn this energetic principle into a lifestyle – a magnetic lifestyle- is refreshing and makes this attraction law something of a roadmap to big changes that accumulate with ease over time.

Live in ways that feel great, set up your home in ways that feel great, and it will all flow to you: great thoughts, words and actions all create karma, the blueprint of the future. Step-by-step, you’ll start to craft very new realities that you love!

keep the flow going in life

There are impossible awesome ways that life falls into place when you’re in flow, and then there are… obstacles.  I don’t even know if we should call them obstacles as they are sort of a natural process of things rather than barriers that are thrown up like roadblocks, but… obstacles are the best ways I know to describe the things that pop up that seem to threaten to pull you off your course as you’re making progress.

These things– the chaos things–  are signs that you’re making— progress!!!!

They aren’t bad.  In fact… they’re a good sign.

When you’re moving forward, everything gets re-calibrated.  Your awareness gets higher and your eyes much sharper.  Suddenly you’ll see things you didn’t see before. Stuff comes to the surface to be cleared away.

Have you ever started eating healthier or started a new fitness thing (for me this happens with hot yoga) and you find yourself feeling awesome… and then terrible, achey and miserable? That’s part of the readjustment.  It’s all a part of clearing things and moving life up, up, up.

How do you stay in flow when you’re feeling like steps forward are bringing you chaos instead of the peace you were promised for making all these positive decisions?  Today’s feng shui is all about overcoming resistance and flowing in life no matter what is happening!

structure minerals crystal rainbows

(@structureminerals)

Is it your habit to get stressed… to “need” pressure… or even to “crave” drama in a strange and paradoxical way? It’s like a rush, a familiar motivation, a cycle that- in a strange way- we think serves us sometimes.

Don’t feel bad if you realize you do this.

You’re not alone.

I’ve done it, sometimes I still do it and most everyone I know has come up against this bizarre paradox: we want peace but somehow stress is looped in with the idea of success.   Gotta do the ‘no pain, no gain’ or the ‘suffer for beauty’ or the ‘crazy busy’ or the other wild ways we’ve come to celebrate stress as noble and valiant.

It’s not.  Stress can make you sick, it can cost you hard earned cash, it can shut down your brilliance, rapidly age your body and it can erode the love in your life.

That doesn’t sound too successful, does it?!

It can be hard to break the stress habit once it begins because our brains get WIRED to feel these emotions and concepts together: stress = stress hormones= work like crazy= get things done= feel exhausted = more stress, etc, etc.  It all gets looped together as a habit… and you can break that habit right now!

Here are a few proven ideas that can help you to allow yourself to relax and be successful all at the same time:

Pressure makes performance suffer. (!!!)  Rushing and self-criticism aren’t good friends with productivity.  HERE is so much more about this, it’s just incredible how much pressure robs from you. 

Creativity opens up when our body and mind opens up.  Stress is the opposite of creativity.  Those frantic people you see trying to get art made are likely not making much art.

Meditation can rewire your brain in 10 minutes a day.  There are hundreds of ways to meditate and the easiest one I know is to sit up straight close my eyes and breathe deeply for a long time until my body feels good.

cortisol

Stress debilitates your body with hormones and chemicals that pull you out of present time.  There is so much research on this I don’t know where to begin, but the bit on cortisol above, a killer stress hormone, is a place to start.

Your heart is 5,000 X more magnetic in its measured field of energy than your brain, so feeling good is way more “magnetic” and has a way greater impact on the world in every way than feeling stressed. HERE is so much more on the actual science of Heartmath and how it can change our lives to take a few minutes to connect to our hearts.

So, if you are in a stress feedback loop, take a moment and pull back from the situation before it takes you over, and see if you can’t breathe through the temptation to get scrambled up in confusion.  Often it’s a few quiet minutes that can help switch gears and move us back to the energy flow of “least resistance.”

And… if you find yourself “addicted” to stress in certain ways, chances are it’s manifested in your home as clutter.  Old stuff that’s squirreled away, big piles of un-tended paperwork, ignored yet very important things on the to-do list, broken things with no time to repair them… stuffed closets, indecision, crazy-busy and unproductive life… an inability to enjoy free time… and… so much more that you don’t need.

Luckily, you can disengage at any time!

Clear space for the new!!!

You create your reality from your unique point of view.

How you see yourself is a huge part of that reality that you see and conceptualize.

“The curious paradox is that when I accept myself as I am, then I can change.” – Carl Rogers

That’s what today’s feng shui is all about- the deep and meaningful ways that we can accept who we are, and, by doing so, start to evolve into the highest visions we hold for ourselves.

There’s no self-badgering, pressure or criticism involved, no unnatural pushing or striving that feels weird.  It’s all flow…and that flow, deeply rooted in who you are and what you love, can help you to rocket forward in amazing ways!!! Continue Reading…
