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.

crystal healing

I may have spend an inordinant amount of time this Summer in crystal shopping: the local markets, the more museum-quality stores, trips to Boulder literally immersed in gemstone stores everywhere, and then there were the crystals in homes, crystals for clients…

I am pretty much non-woo-woo.  But I happen to find myself naturally drawn to these minerals and gems, and other people do, too!

Here’s my little 101 crash-course in crystal shopping, crystal using and even crystal healing.   Continue Reading…



I am so impressed as well as perplexed by the now hundreds- many even thousands- of ways to “manifest” a dream or “magnetize” what you need.  It’s The Law Of Attraction. It’s The Secret.  

And it can be so helpful… if you don’t lean to heavily on it!

Think about it: if you are even slightly versed in the New Age world of  “manifestation”  there’s a vast array of homeopathy, meditation, visualization, healing modalities that span a spectrum from acupuncture to neural therapy, EFT, aromatherapy, kundalini… Nutrition, herbs, vitamins, breathing exercises, energy medicine, magnetic therapy… I can list about a hundred off the top of my head of these very wild cures for everything that range from healing crystals to actual magic spells.

You may not even know what half the things are that I mentioned.  You may have tried each and every one of them and still come up empty-handed.

Why is it that sometimes you can try so many things and nothing happens to “manifest” what you are looking for?

That’s the question of the day… And it’s a big one! Continue Reading…

energy vampires


Ah, yet again, its not “them” its “us” that is creating the crazy.

I wondered how I attracted some people who were vocal, loud and even righteous and proud of all their problems but short on solutions. Why did so many people show up who really just wanted to use me as an unpaid life coach. Devaluing my time. Taking from me and giving very little.  Pretending to care.


Could it be that I was devaluing my own time and my own worth and my own life?

Yep. Indeed I was!

Its well worth embracing even your very-dark darkness in the serive of making real shifts and creating a world free of energy vampires.  You may think you are worthless, helpless, damned… and owning it, seeing it, understanding it… you can transform it. Its way more effective to meditate, journal or  involve yourself in therapy  or spiritual awakening than it is to surround yourself with people who keep reminding you of your darkest fears about yourself and keep pulling you down as you try to move forward in life!

sea salt

 (so this is what salt looks like in the sea!)

Sea salt is so beautiful it’s surreal.  It’s no wonder something so elementally powerful is harvested in areas that resemble paradise.

And there are more ways to use sea salt… particularly to let its magnetic greatness suck some of the stagnant and stale bad energy vibes from your home.
