oranges in feng shui

Nature is always powerful, teeming with energy and color and sensory richness. There’s a simple cure in feng shui to use nature to amp up the abundance energy in your life.


I give them as gifts for housewarmings in big bags. I put them on my buddhist altar.

And… if you put bowls of oranges around the house, it’s a traditional cure for welcoming good fortune and wealth into your life. Nine is a symbolic number, so if you want to be traditional, do nine… or multiples of 9… in bowls in your house.

Put them wherever you need an energy lift!

Peeling and eating the oranges sprinkles essential oils from the peel into the air. These oils are thought to create spontaneous joy.

Win-win-win type of feng shui :)

There are hundreds of feng shui cures that are laden with superstition that I ardently avoid. Then there are the symbolic and cool cures that are rooted in a lot of good sense and even science.

I just arrived home from one of the more majestic places I’ve been among majestic places- Nicaragua- and I’m thrilled to sift through a mountain of photos to bring you the best of visiting this insanely gorgeous country.

Today, though, before I unpack, before I do anything… I had to write this.

This was not just a luxurious adventure with silence and sun. It was punctuated with wild adventure.   I battled some pretty paralyzing fears on this trip that I didn’t realize I had- sliding down the side of a volcano at 27mph, braving the stormiest lake waves in a boat that was about to toss over for a full hour in the midst of nowhere,  and facing my own personal fears of self-expession, of living in total quiet with no technology to lean on and no control over it, being super-vulnerable— and every step along the way I needed help.

Was it life threatening? Maybe or maybe not.  It felt like total doom at times… and from that doom I was able to rise to incredible heights I didnt realize were possible.  With help.  A lot of it.

I talk alot about facing fears and in my life those fears are usually more emotional and less primal. Primal fears have a way of testing how much you’re really living your life philosophy.

Here’s what happened when I climbed up and slid down the side of a volcano at 27mph and got the most tactile life lessons on facing fears and living bigger at my core.   What I gathered – not in my mind but in my body-  was the ultimate in embracing fearless living.

where you heart is you'll find your treasure

If the treasures in your life are wherever your heart is, and if so many thinkers throughout thousands of years of history have uttered similar things, it stands to reason that there’s a universal truth in here somewhere.  We are meant to be happy.  We’re meant to love.  We’re meant to lean into joy.

Then, you might look at what’s in front of you for the day, the week and the year and see a different picture.

If your days aren’t set up with your loves in mind, every other thing in the universe can take over.  Work can consume you.  Other people’s problems can creep in.  Stuff flies out of nowhere and becomes more vibrant and pressing than anything else.

Just like setting deadlines shapes time, setting priorities keeps life full of what you love.

For all my clients over the years and all my Campers and for me, who I see every day… there were some shifts that made happy priorities soar to the top of my list.  A lot of extra stuff I didn’t need to have in my days effortlessly shook out as a result.  Continue Reading…

you must find the place inside yourself where nothing is impossible

There are many people I know who believe with every single cell in their body that everything is possible.

Not only do they believe, they live it.

In their space of infinite possibility, their lives reflect this with empires of creativity, abundant love and joy all over the place.  They aren’t all zillionaires- in fact, two don’t care at all about money much- but they are all odds-beating, life-changing, fully-expressed and astonishing balls of light.

What would life be like if we all lived like that, all the time?  What would your own life look like if you actually lived that huge infinite possibility all the time?  Continue Reading…

I learned about each of the four concepts in the acronym H.A.L.T. on their own… but together they are synergy and greatness.   Thank you so much to my dear Catalyst Camper who shared a game-changing acronym that was too good to not share.  It’s a known concept, though in smaller circles than I think it should be.


These four words can change your life in a huge way!  Continue Reading…

If you’ve been somewhat suffering in frustrated or defeated “waiting”  for the “one day” when you’re successful and can enjoy a flood of goodness, with a paradigm shift, today can be that day.  Every day can be that day!

One of the more helpful ways to know when you’ve achieved your own success is to actually define it for yourself.  

One of the more vibrant ways to stay focused and grateful for every day is to live a lifestyle that is your success, every single day.  

The big triumphs and highs will stand out… but every single day you’ll stop living in want and wishing and be deep in the creating and making and celebrating!
