Mind and Spirit

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 […]

Inspiration with Feng Shui

I’m not sure, maybe it’s because I’ve been in the throes of a type of spiritual “up-leveling,” or perhaps because I’m starting my next certification training, but the word INSPIRED is in my world so much lately, I thought I’d share a couple of things in hopes that the energy of inspiration spreads to you.   […]

Listen To The Words We Say

Listen to the Words We Say … How the Use of Language Can Provide Insight to What Our True Needs Are. One of the first things I do when I provide feng shui services is sit with the client and talk. We talk about what they want to change in their lives, what they feel […]

“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 […]

Living and Giving and Re-Tooling Myself!

Having spent several weeks traveling lately on what I call “life-changing” trips, I can assure you that right now, I have a true, visceral feeling of the difference between existing in life and LIVING. These travels have given me the desperately-needed perspective on the question of how I’m going to live as an empty-nester once […]

Working your mantras

  One of my favorite mantras is one of the most well known; Om Mani Padme Hum. It roughly translates, “The jewel of consciousness is in the heart’s lotus.” I use it in my space clearing and blessing “feng shui rituals” as well as in my meditation practice. Sometimes, I take my 108-beaded mala along […]

Best Intentions for Happiness

QUESTION: I am doing what your book Move Your Stuff Change Your Life says and still nothing has changed. I really don’t know what the problem is.  Any suggestions? ANSWER: Fortunately, I do know what the problem is! There is an energy behind negative thoughts and beliefs that can wreak havoc on physical feng shui […]

Change is in the air!

The days are definitely getting shorter, and finally, the southern California weather where I live is starting to get a bit cooler, which means — FALL is here! I don’t know about you, but autumn is the time when I start to “go more yin” — as in running around less, meditating more, and roasting […]

The Earth Element for the Skills and Knowledge Gua

I so thrilled that you are all out there soaking up as much feng shui information as you can – which I’m sure is making the world a better place one home at a time (my mission statement!) I will continue serving up as much feng shui and healthy lifestyle information as I can! And […]

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 […]
