In the last two months I’ve had a crash course in kitchen design… from cabinet components to plumbing, color to countertops.  I have a real reverance for kichens now, even more than ever, as I understand the many layers of intricacy in even a simple, budget-friendly design (that will still be well over 8,000!).  When your kitchen is bubbling with energy and life force you’ll enjoy the benefits of kitchens- cooking, synergy in the family, wellness, propagating life, storing nutrition- on an even higher level.

This week, the kitchen feng shui tips are designed to nourish your life!  Continue Reading…

Today’s tips and narrative from Gabriele really strike a deep chord and make me extra-excited to pass them on: its feng shui to honor our legacy, to connect to the dawning season and really make the most of the energy of Memorial Day.   Continue Reading…

spring cleaning

Spring is when life shakes out of winter hibernation and things start to bloom.

The energy you invest in a garden is most often reflected in 
the way that it flourishes.

Same goes for everything in life.

Feng shui philosophy teaches that the more you invest in nurturing, brightening, weeding and feeding your home with greatness the more your space will powerfully support your dreams.

That’s what Spring Cleaning is all about: creating a space that powerfully supports your dreams. You weed out the junk, polish things to sparkle, add fresh light, flood spaces with sensory greatness using everything from art to aromatherapy… and you get rewarded with an environment that elevates your whole life.

You can read all 7 of my favorite practical and feng shui magical ways to do Spring Cleaning at the Inspired Home blog. The International Housewares Association has helped me to expand into a wealth of new knowledge and experience new, cutting edge products in home & wellness. I am thrilled for you to experience their blog and see all that I’ve learned lately to help make space shine!   xoxo Dana

break habits (via)

In feng shui, if you have a bad habit you are “stagnant” in some way. Energy ceases to flow freely. Things become like a broken record: repeating bad patterns, stuck in this destructive groove that’s annoyingly difficult to change, over and over again.

If you de-clutter your home, however, you will give yourself a greater opportunity to really be free of those long-standing, destructive habits.

In feng shui, of you are creatively blocked- or blocked in any way- that represents and energy blockage. One of the more fun ways to tap into your creativity is to use Julia Cameron’s suggestion from The Artist’s Way and start scubbing, polishing and really amplifying your home’s energy by Spring Cleaning any time of year!

feng shui for a balanced life

I don’t know about you, but I have an easier time staying on my bike while I’m riding it, rather than when it’s stationary and I’m sitting there. In fact, its impossible for me to balance on a bike without moving.

I feel the same way about everything. Its way easier to find a way that works while you are busy doing things, you know?!

And balance… while never perfect… is very dynamic.

There are so many cool tools to use to create more balance where you feel it is lacking.  Color, motion, temperature, scent… and a ton of feng shui tools that are specific to the practice, but still easy to use…

Just a little more equilibrium can help you feel more stable, happy, secure and, yes, attractive, too!

Want more balance?

Lift up your space!

change your life I used to delight in “testing” psychics and tarot readers.  Go in sitting quietly, saying nothing, expressing as poker-faced a reaction to the news being told to me so that I wouldn’t “lead on” the oracle.  Have you ever done this? I used this method to determine that some people just “know things” and – for whatever reason-  just a rare one person I met in many years of my past chasing predictions seemed to actually know the unknowable.   I no longer chase predictions- it’s pretty exhausting and disempowering- but I do know that there are people who can articulate things that are unseen to my eyes. Its as though their cards are a mirror into life that is unseen.

I like to look at the seen.  The tangible. The artful.

People often think I am a psychic of some sort.  I can usually see a home, take a walk through, and explain lots of themes and issues that affect the people in the space… without hearing a word from the people who live there.

It’s not because I’m a gifted intuitive.  I just know that very deeply and clearly we are all mirrored by our space, and each home tells a story.

You can either live with the reflection as it is, or you can polish the reflection so that your best self can emerge.  Chances are, if you are here reading this, you are looking for something more shiny and new to see in that mirror.

Today let’s look at the mirror effect of space and how to polish that mirror of life otherwise known as your home! Continue Reading…
