The last two weeks have been full of dialing-in to the present moment, diving into new things that are definitely different and renovating my own feng shui. Let me tell you- for all of you out there making big life changes or even small shifts in things in your life that aren’t suiting you- I understand what it is like! Whenever I feng shui for myself, it is wildly disorienting for a moment (or more)… even if it feels right. This week, the Instagram is all about these little and big life shifts. They are awesome!!!
Apricot colored, buttery-petalled flowers are borne from the scariest and meanest cactus I hae ever seen in my neighboohood. Caught this while walking Bob last week. It spoke to the idea that beautiful things can spring from the most unlikely places.
I got a pile of memoirs to read (what I’ll be doing at the pool in a few minutes). They aren’t light and fun. They are real. Great true stories have a way of creating medicine from poison, turning the darker stuff in life into light.
This was me in a self-indulgent moment I wanted to remember before a gut-wrenching afternoon that I knew would be… not fun. I’ve made a practice of taking extra time to tune into what I feel before walking into situations that I know will be hard. I felt strangely amazing before this really big bummer of a day, and it was worth commemorating it.
When I need new perspective, I try to sit in art. LACMA has been my go-to these days. Whether its sitting on the floor amidst Chris Burden’s light sculpture or hanging out in the garden by the Calders spinning in a pool of water, this is where I find a new way.
And, I just got these crystals to try from Crystal Age. I am soaking them in salt water and sunshine for a while and I’ll read up and see how to do the meditation. I do believe strongly in the meridians and energy centers (chakras) of the body as storange units for emotion and physical wellness or disease, so this promises to be a good symbolic- if not truly metaphysical- experience. For sure you’ll see it on the blog tomorrow!
You can find me on Instagram HERE. I love to follow you all to watch what you are doing. Its such a fresh form of social media-izing. Have a gorgeous day!!! xoxo Dana
