Those melty rocks of resin on a disk of charcoal are a big deal where fresh energy is concerned, and that’s because all kinds of resins help to clear the air of entanglements and stuckness.

But you don’t need fancy tools to make a fresh start.

I am deep in Spring Cleaning season (which is really any season you want to make a fresh start!) and in that season of creativity and making things, a whole lot of themes have popped up to help start a fresh chapter.

You may want to light up a sage wand and get your tea cup filled as we have some simple energy-shifting to do today! Continue Reading…

Of all the fun and useful tips to feel more creative and in the stream of dreams, a Pray Rain journal is probably the most fun!

Grab yourself a notebook + pen.

Start wiring every day about your dreams for the future AS THOUGH THEY HAVE ALREADY HAPPENED.

Flow is simple- it’s motion without resistance.

That’s easy.

What’s less easy for nearly all of us at some point is coming up against things standing in the way of flow and… then… what do you do next?

And… once you’re in the flow of things… how do you keep things flowing?

In the space of gathering up magic and collecting ideas and making so many new things for the season ahead, my mind is like glitter, and that’s how I know I’m on the right path.  It feels awesome to write, to experiment, to move, to daydream, to make art… even to clean the house and clear up administration and chores and stuff.  That’s the kind of space of genius I think we all love to play in.  Free, alive, exciting, easy…

It’s actually possible to live in this glitter zone a whole lot of the time- I’m observing, experiencing and realizing- with a mind toward creating every day in our own flowing ways!  Continue Reading…

Everyone could use more calm all the time, and while a big piece of creating calm is minding your lifestyle and your thoughts, words & actions, the great big not-so-secret secret of stress reduction is an environment that helps you to decompress and feel fantastic.

Here are some feng shui ways to get the stress out of your home!  Continue Reading…

Here’s a thought for you to ponder that I’ve been thinking about all day in spurts when I catch myself looking like a zombie starting to hunch over my laptop or get lost in my phone…

Could you pledge to lift your eyes up away from this stuff more in a day and make deep human, nature, art, life connection?!

One of the things I was most impressed with in the Murad Skincare philosophy was the idea of cultural stress, and I have to say, it’s deep.  We get stressed by the way that we live- go, go, go… get lost in social media… work all night… run, run, run… And the constant phone/email/messaging isn’t helping us either.

When’s the last time you hung out with a friend that you message with all day?

When’s the last time you spent time outside enjoying a break without a phone or email or text conversation happening?

When’s the last time you shut off everything- all technology- for a day? A week?

While the thought can be terrifying, it’s super-powerful.

I’m going to organize my time so that I can have big stretches of no computer/text/phone at all.

I’m pledging to lift my eyes up, and I took the pledge HERE to do this more consciously. 

HERE you can read about the eye-opening ways that stress impacts our lives.  And not just the obvious stress… but the cultural, lifestyle stress.

We can be free of it, we can use technology for our greatest good, and we can totally soar without too much information, EMF’s and disconnection.

Want to join me?!

You don’t have to look farther than a plant or a tree or a few minutes of watching the artfulness of a sunset to know that there’s so much more majesty than we realize on a daily basis all around us, happinening naturally.

Naturally we’d all be tuned in to joy, right?

But, in modern intervention in the flow of natural things we tune into what’s wrong.

That’s how I used to do “upgrades” and “betterment.”

It was a process of: ” I can’t stand this so I need to fix it.  This is broken so I need to repair it.  This is all wrong and I need to figure out how to make it right.  This is outdated and it’s just not good enough but I have to settle until I find the right thing and I need to find it…” 

It was my constant “improvement” speech, all focused on every wrong thing and how wrong it was and how focusing on the wrong would help me deduce in some way an answer or find what was right.

This “everything wrong” focus would pull me so far away from what’s right, it was so convoluted, even though it seemed so practical and reasonable!

If you want to make some upgrades at home, work, in habits, relationships, anything… today’s feng shui is all about upgrading energy in a way that takes away the battle and makes it way easier.   Continue Reading…

 

 

(I love Sunpotion!)

Ashwagandha is an adaptogenic herb.

Adpaptogen herbs are substances that help your body adjust and handle outside stressors such as toxins in your body and harmful substances in your external environment. They also help you through anxiety and the inability to sleep at night.

What is Ashwagandha?

The Chopra Center explains here that Ashwagandha is known as a healing herb, indigenous to India, that offer many restorative properties from helping protect the immune system, reducing anxiety, lowering blood pressure and cholesterol, to helping improve our reproductive system.

There is science to support the mood-boosting benefits of the herb.  This study shows how orally taking Ashwagandha for five consecutive days can serve as a safe and effective mood stabilizer, anti-depressant, and can lessen anxiety comparable to prescribed medications.

It may be helpful in supporting hormonal balance as well.  Dr. Axe explains that, .”..ashwagandha improves cortisol levels, improves insulin sensitivity and naturally balances hormones.”

For five years, The Institute of Natural Medicine at the Toyama Medical Center and Pharmaceutical University in Japan has been conducting research on the benefits of ashwagandha. Their research suggests that this herb helps restore the fiber of nerve cells (such as dendrites and axions – the communication between cells) which help refurbish the nervous system. This can slow down the degenerative brain process that can lead to dementia, and Alzheimer’s disease.  (you can learn more HERE)

With the rise of Unicorn-trending mushoom and adaptogen-infused foods like THESE in Vogue , plus the bliss of Moon Juice, you’ll find a zillion creative ways to mix some Ashwagandha into your smoothies, cereals, cocoas, cupcakes…. but the traditional way is very simple.

1 cup of milk (cow’s milk or almond milk)

1 teaspoon ashwagandha powder

2 teaspoons honey

Optional: some people add black pepper or cinnamon.

Heat the cup of milk in a small sauce pan over medium heat.

Add the herb power, and honey, and any of the spice you’d like.

Worth a big note: I love to share these many ideas but I am not by any means a medical expert and you should always, of course, consult with your doctor before consuming herbs or tonics. And none of the above should ever replace what your doctor says.

Enjoy!

What I’ve learned from years of over-striving is that “hard work” is often misunderstood by the well meaning who want to succeed.  Meaning: if it’s painfully hard and uninteresting and striving feels forced… it’s not really sustainable.

I’m always gathering up ways to make the necessary things more artful and fun… and my favorite new way to reach big goals as a game rather than a struggle: a coloring book!

Enjoy this one- it’s super-fun! I’m off to go color in my sections for my own goals, too!!!
