Sensory Goodness

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.

love yourself more

No matter what you accomplish in life, learning to show yourself love & doing it all the time seems to be the most valuable skill to master.  After all, you don’t want to be one of those successful & miserable people, do you?!  Being fulfilled is a really prized form of success, and from there, everything is easier! xoxo Dana

Violet is a tough color to approach for many, in part, I think, because of its cosmic nature.

Violet. however, is a color that resomates with the universal, the spirited and the higher forms of thought and connection we have to humanity.

If you are looking to live in a world of greater purpose, here are five feng shui reasons to mix more violet into your life!  Continue Reading…

Happiness is what we all want.

Misery is no fun.

Yet, some people seem to hold on to misery as though it is a part of their DNA.

You have seen it:  The people who are so successful yet perpetually upset. The person who meets their soulmate yet continues to date other people that are distruptive because that feels more “safe.” The amazing blesings some people have that seem to be met with … “yeah, but I don’t have x, y & z yet!”

You have seen it.  But… the question of the day: are you it? Are you addicted to unhappiness? 

Its a very profound question.  Continue Reading…

sleep

I’ve talked a whole lot about why we all need tons of sleep.  Sleep affects: your immune system, hormone levels, stress levels, genetic expression, mental clarity, weight, metabolism, physical coordination and so much more.

As it turns out, sleep makes your bain more efficient. Lack of sleep , however, doesn’t just make you lazy. Lack of sleep may actually lead to brain damage.

Get your pillows fluffed and your bedroom feng shui rockin’— there is another big reason to sleep so much more!  Continue Reading…

I have this one big pillar of thought that guides all my feng shui- and everything else for that matter!- when it feels wrong, it is wrong. 

Our true nature functions on instincts.

I got a great big live demonstration of this recently and I had to share it!

Today’s video is all about trusting what you know, and using your intuition as a starting point when you feel sometyhing is just not right.

If you feel something is wrong, that can be the start of a deeper investigation and excavation of what that feeling means in your world.

What you find when you do a little digging can often lead to major transformation.

In this case, for me, it potentially saved my life (!) as my problem was electrical. And I just knew something was wrong…

Scent is as specific as a signature.  We even discern people by their scent.  We also overlook the power of scent in daily life quite often.

I just read a synopsis of a study done by Rockefeller University on the power of scent and our abilty to discern between scents. As it turns out, we are capable of distinguishing an estimated trillion scents. Yes, trillion!

In the Discover article Sense of Smell is a Million Times More Accurate Than We Thought, April Reese writes:

 “While scientists had assumed the average person could distinguish among about 10,000 smells, the Rockefeller study puts that number way, way higher, at 1 trillion unique scents…..

and goes on to explain

…The new study, published this week in the journal Science, puts the nose far above the eyes and ears in its powers of discernment: researchers estimate we can see between 2.3 million and 7.5 million different colors, and we can hear about 340,000 tones.” (you can read the whole piece HERE) 

Now: how does this relate to your life?

In a trillion ways! Continue Reading…

love

One of the things that block people from amazing relationships: being hung up on the past. If you can’t come to a good place of resolution with one love, how can you find a new one?

Well, I used to think I could get away with clinging to the great love of my last relationship until it was pointed out to me clearly: “Would you like to fall in love with someone still pining for their ex?”

Point well taken.

Today I am sharing a bit of an article ftom one of my most favorite people who has illuminated my own life. I  love Carmen Harra. She makes the best predictions. She is a psychologist who employs intuition. She knows things. In fact, while I am psychic-free these days, I think of her words to me often as they continue to come to life, a decade later.

Her advice is awesome.  If you are feeling lost after a break up, or stuck hanging on to an ex, you may find something of great value HERE.  Continue Reading…
