Feeling fresh and wild and free is the way I like to live… but in order to be productive, to expand and grow and bring talent to the world, there’s a certain X Factor of sheer quantity that life brings for us to deal with, you know? Plus there’s the seeming randomness of so many things happening all-at-the-same-time, too.
Both things considered, it’s not unusual to be overwhelmed, even my good things. But the overwhelm of a moment can be flipped into far more creative control if you can take a breath and get things in order!
Right now I have three – almost four- big things happening at once. In fact, if I start counting there may be five or six. Plus everyday life. And then actual day-to-day stuff of working.
In the past I’ve had overwhelms both negative and positive… so great in fact that I wanted to quit on my actual dreams and run away.
That’s not a solution. Hiding, flipping out, avoiding… these’s never work out well.
But there are a few tricks I’ve learned to take an overwhelming situation and make it into something more managable. Consider them tips for a toolbox, ideas to try and, perhaps, a fresh road into a soution! Continue Reading…
I put crystals in just about every bath I take.
And because I take baths every single day except for when I’m travelling (*and even then, depending on where I am!) I have a real sense of what I love where crystals are concerned.
Not every crystal is bath-friendly. Some dissolve in water and some are just plain toxic, but the ones that are completely happy and body-friendly are my favories to interact with in the tub. Whether a placebo effect or not (* placebo effects actually do work!) I can tell you that I LOVE my crystals and they are so gorgeous that they elevate the bath experience 100%. So, today, my favorite bath crystals for you! Continue Reading…
Nature has incredible healing powers.
Immerse yourself in a forest or a beach and studies have found that the levels of stress hormones in your body significantly decrease. You are more likely to sleep deeper. Your whole demeanor softens.
The Earth itself has a “heartbeat” of sorts, 7.8hz as it’s been measured, and that frequency, the Schumann resonance, is thought to be the natural rhythm that keeps our mind, our body and all of the life on the planet, in healthy synch. Everything from WiFi and cell phones to the frequencies of music and manmade magnetic fields have pulled the modern world further from this natural rhythm.
Today we’ll explore some innovative ways to bring nature back to your life at home, every day…. and you can find the article- along with innovating new products like charcoal bags that purify the air and Modular Living planters (pictured above) that look like art- right HERE on Inspired Home!
One the most univerally-wonderful crystals is amethyst. It charges other stones. It purifies. It is gorgeous. Its color is confounding.
It’s the one crystal I’m missing from my collection, somehow shockingly (!)… But not for long!
Today, lots of amethyst inspiration will help you to both use the color, and the crystal, in gorgeous ways! Continue Reading…
Crystal balls tucked into the tufting of upholstery got me thinking of even more spectacular ways to upgrade spaces with energy.
Are you so wishing you could upgrade your whole home?
What if I told you that without renovating you could really transform your home?
What if you could do the same with your style, your diet, your job… really your whole life?
In feng shui, what you do to your environment has a ripple effect in your entire life.
Let’s look at ways to do some energy decorating at home that can transform your space in ways you’ve never dreamed about. Ways that make you feel buzzing and giddy and calm and focused. Ways that are a makeover… without making-over much but the feelings you have in your space! Continue Reading…
I have three trips to take in the next six weeks, and there is no time to be under the weather or stressed out! My typical flight plan includes frankincense oil on my feet, non-stop layers of lotion on hands, face… lip balm unending… and tons of hot water and lemon (I bring lemons in my purse) with fresh fruit (and only fresh fruit… eating on planes can cause jet lag, I’ve been told).
Today, I’m so excited that celebrity makeup artist and balanced beauty expert Chantal Moore has a holistic solution to exhausting flights, packed with powerful aromatherapy! Continue Reading…
