Running Away or Taking Action?

Someone asked me the other day if I thought I was running away from anything in California as I make my way to my new home in Florida. Hey – there’s no law that says I can’t ever come back! 🙂  But I am looking forward to a new adventure. I set up my life […]

“Mind” Your Business!

I had the pleasure last month of doing an interview with James Wedmore (Youtube Video Guru!) and Phoebe Mroczek on their new itunes podcast.  We had a great time talking (and laughing) about how to ‘Mind” your business with feng shui and get the most out of your career.  If you have a business, or […]

What is your source of suffering?

“Pain is inevitable. Suffering is optional.”  –Buddha  To alleviate suffering, it would be a great start to avoid ingesting the “5 poisons” of jealousy, ignorance, greed, pride, and attachment. These unhealthy emotions are the source of much suffering, even though many people would swear that it’s their mother-in-law, noisy neighbor, terrible teacher, or what have […]

Take this Job and Love it!

Which one are you? Someone who : Tolerates your work (how much resentment do you have daily?) Likes your work (but there are many things you’d rather be doing.) Has a passion for your work (the happiest and well-balanced of all) Do us all a favor and trust that what you REALLY REALLY want to […]

To Microwave or Not Microwave. That is the Question!

To microwave, or not to microwave, that is the question. Little do most people know that you don’t need to actually turn on a microwave oven to be exposed to microwave radiation. Since the age of cell towers and wireless devices, micro waves are all around — not just in the kitchen. They are invisible, […]

To love oneself is the beginning of a lifelong romance…Oscar Wilde

I wanted to share a little note I received the other day in response to a recent email I sent out, as I think it demonstrates love in such a profound way… Hi Karen,  Although I cannot afford a consultation with you right now, or to become a student of yours, I am just writing […]

This stuff no longer matches me…some of it never did.

I think I’m pretty much done with shedding my skin as “the year of the snake” comes to a close, but the one thing I am still finishing is my environment (when I say finishing, I mean “for the moment” anyway. There really is no such thing.) What do I want and what do I […]

3 Ways to Get Unstuck in Life

I often see clients who don’t seem to be going anywhere in life simply because they are in a type of fear-based paralysis state over decision-making. They say, “If I could figure out what I want to do, I’d go for it, but I just can’t decide!” or “I just don’t want to put years […]

Preparing for Fall with Feng Shui – Keep the Invitation Open

A hint of fall is in the air, I can feel it. This is a time of transition between the bright, hot “yang-ness” of summer and the darker, cooler yin days of winter. I’ve got a pumpkin growing in the garden that’s looking to be a fine specimen jack-o-lantern decoration for my front porch. When […]

Are You Paying Attention to Life’s Opportunities?

Whether I’m speaking to a large group or just talking one-on-one, it seems that everyone eventually asks how I got into feng shui. I love hearing how other consultants got into feng shui too, so this month, I thought I’d give you my story in case you haven’t heard it yet. When I was a […]
