This week’s lifestyle goodies are packed with sensory richness, bringing sunshine to rainy, dreary days. I am in no place to complain about weather living in Southern California where we had the hottest Winter I can remember, but when it rains here, it tends to be dark for days. This week- a big week to launch new things and clarify things of the past- I just couldn’t dip into the dreary. So… lots of sunshine came flooding in! Continue Reading…
Life is experienced through our physical senses. Sensory information affects our body’s energy centers- the chakras. Adding layers of sensory goodness to a space (aromatherapy, music, plushness, texture, warmth, color) promotes richer, deeper, more peaceful and blissful lives. One of the easiest ways to increase the “chi” or energy of a home or any space is to add sensory goodness to the space. Something as simple as music or as commonplace as a coat of paint in the right color can make a major shift in the energy in your life.

Pretty compelling reasons to get more present, no?!

My lifestyle goodies are all about the artfully simple things. Continue Reading…
Every once I a while I am given what I consider to be a test.
I am sure you have had a day like that!
You know, the world asks you to show how tough you can be.
For me, I feel its a way to answer the question: Can I practice what I preach in peace, love & feng shui?!
But when it counts, when a day is so terrible that there needs to be an intervention, I have a tendancy to dive deep into my own toolkit and create a way out.
Here’s a little feng shui for a day gone haywire! Continue Reading…
