Habits are a sort of web of energy that create what we know to be normal.  Andy Gilmore’s art is to me a perfect representation of habit at its best- repeating petterns that create something harmonious and beautiful.

Not all habits have the kind of beauty, though.

Recently I started looking at the energetic idea of a “habit field”.  Its the energy patterns that some people claim they can see surrouding people, the “normal” haze that constructs their behavior sort of surrounding people in their electrical aura. I notice that when the habit is gone, I don’t “feel it” around me any more.

Now… I know that’s a big leap of faith to believe that 1. you have an aura and 2. that people can see it!   However, if you can dig into the metaphor of a habit-field of energy around you, even if you don’t believe it is tangible or can be seen by a clairvoyant, you may understand why you keep doing things that you don’t want to do, over and over again.

We all do it. We all have habits that we’d like to break.

Science tends to look at the brain as the key to understanding habits and breaking the bad ones.  The most compelling science looks at behavior rather than presuming that all brains work in exactly the same way.

Today, some simple and cool science breaks down why you may be having a hard time kicking certain habits… and there are a few really great ideas to help you start new habits that stick! Continue Reading…



Everyone wants to somewhat easily get what they want.

The old Law Of Attraction promises that if you get really super vibey and vibrate at the frequency of what you want that it will magically appear.  This “Law” is not that complete to me, not even when people “go deeper” and try to make it  a fool proof way to massively manifest what you want.

You are seeking something and trying to match its “vibe” to get it.  I have to say, its a whole lot easier to just feel good about yourself and go out and do the work than it is to make life into a sort of a magically metaphysical head game. Hope is not as compelling as actually living.

Visualization, meditation, clearing space = all brilliant.  Kinda faking and warping things to try to control the world is not as brilliant.

I am interested in real magnetism.  I bet you are, too.

Today started by comtemplating hunks of the “magnetic” pyrite mineral thought to magnetize money in gemstone lore.  The story I really like about this ore isn’t just the glittery “money magnetic” part.  That seems as fake as putting ducks in your bedroom to find your husband or wife. Its not even how pyrite feels to me when I see it.  What gets my about pyrite is that it feels and looks cool, solid  and magnificent and makes the world multiply in its reflection.

I think that golden greatness like pyrite is a prosperity stone because it inspires an expansive worldview. It motivates me to dream bigger and be cooler and stronger when I see it.  It doesn’t send out special waves to money and then open up your pockets to let it flow in…

Why did we ever want to think that a stone could do that, anyway?

Authentic magnetism— the feeling and knowing that you are an itegral part of life and you can create what you need—  is very different from charisma. If you’ve ever had the wool pulled over your eyes, been fleeced by a “wolf in sheeps clothing” or found yourself in shock over the seemingly-so-nice dynamo people you know who turn out to be not-quite-awesome, the distinction is a big one.  You may know many “charismatic” folks that seem to have such a huge dynamic of charisma about them, until you realize its not as all-good as it seemed.

It’s pretty funny that this mineral known as pyrite is also known as Fool’s Gold.

I prefer real gold.  And really magnetic living.

I want all of you to be as magnetic as you should be, as tapped into your greatness as you want to be, and as connected to your world as you can be in ways that feel fantastic.

Today’s feng shui about magnetism is all about authenticity.  Continue Reading…


When you shine a light on that big problem or a big situation or a blow up argument or a confusing drama that just won’t resolve itself, typically you expect to find out why.

Why did my job end, why did I fail that test, why did that relationship blow up, why, why, why…

Sometimes it’s easy to see why.

But often, the “why” seems to elude you.

This little trick can help you to understand why some problems just don’t resolve. And how they can… today. Continue Reading…


Today’s thought is the ultimate souce of stress and pain for so many people, myself included in this batch:

Holding on to the way you think things should be.

We have ideas of how things should be.  Then we look at life and get very upset when things are not the way we think we want them to be.  The panic ensues, along with the heartbreaking energy:

Do you think life should be a certain way that it isn’t right now?

If you are in this boat, thinking that life isn’t matching your “way” it “should be” today’s feng shui is for you!  If you can really wrap your heart around the big concept that things are exactly as they are supposed to be right now, you will find yourself feeling light and free. You might even influence the people around you for the better in the process. You may stumble upon greatness. Opportunity will grow. Who knows, you may even find that life suddenly lines up to match that magical expectation!  Continue Reading…


You should never work a day in your life again.

This is my mission: I want you to design your dream life.  In that life, you don’t work. You live.

Work is not valuable the way that we think of it these days.

I used to hide in “work.”  Duty, obligation, superficial challenges, trying to force myself through days of monotony and boredome with no pride and no passion.

Are you there with me?

I’m not suggesting you never challenge yourself ever again, or that you don’t do what you need to do to fulfill your mission on the planet.  Rather, I am strongly recommending that you, instead, make your life your greatest creation.

Don’t go silent on your life.

Its what tends to happen when you are in a position where you know things are wrong but you don’t quite know how to turn them right without upsetting the natural order.  After all, changing could require leaving what you have. Speaking up could mean you have to start from scratch.

I once stood up for myself in a very toxic job a decade ago. It was a big move on my behalf. I thought I was finally doing the right thing and pulling myself out of a place of victimization. Instead, I had gone silent for so long that by the time I spoke up I was implicated in the mess.  I was shocked.  But then I realized: I had gone silent. I made this mess for myself.

And soon, I had to leave. None of it was fun.

When you don’t speak up, you silently agree to things that you likely don’t really agree with. And soon, change becomes much scarier.

Instead of being pushed into change…. dive into change.

If you know that what you are doing right now is not right, challenge yourself to do something right.  Dare yourself to speak up.  Don’t be too afraid to lose.

Sometimes things need to fall apart in order to come together right.

HERE are some fun and powerful tips to become more self-expressed. 

And HERE is a very important bit of science on the fear of success. 

A little bit of extra encouragement to send you on your way.

I know you can do it… I do it all the time now and it is so freeing!!!   xoxo Dana

ocean water washes away

Nothing repeats on a loop in life on accident.  In some ways, you are programming the experiences you have, and in some ways you are attracting the same things.

Our energy field is full of habits.

You can stick your feet in the ocean no matter the time of year and ask the water to pull away the energy you don’t need— that stuck and poisonous energy, the energy that is used to suffering or being treated badly, the energy that is much more comfortable with fear and hiding than creating and being in a seat of positive power.  Salt baths are also really great for this energetic cleansing.  Some do a cup of sea salt, others Epsom, and I mix them all with baking soda for the most shining results.

But… the ocean can’t change your deeply rooted patterns.

You can heal the present, but to create a bright future, you need to really understand the lesson of that crappy experience you keep repeating.  The same bad job.  The same bad relationship.  The same fights with people.  The same financial crisis.  The same things over and over again are a sign that you have a lesson to learn and you best learn it soon.

Here are the three steps to making a dent in this enless cycle of “repeat” of bad things in your life.  You absolutely can do this.  And it will free up your life to a huge degree!

clearing toxic ties


Not a single person on the planet is immune to the poison of people who want to suck your energy.

I certainly am not immune to it!

If you are not sure how to break free from toxicity, here are a few places to start your life detox:

Purge lies from your life.

Check to see if you have empathy around you as well as within you!

Steer clear of passive aggressive people and their world of confusion. 

Free yourself from the nightmare of emotionally unavailable relationships .

And makeover your home energy to jump start a revolution.
