Be the Change You Want to See in the New Year!

There’s a whole lotta change a comin’. But that should be no surprise. Every moment is different no matter how hard you try to deny it. And after a collection enough of “moments,” we proclaim it a NEW YEAR, and then do it all over again – usually with a few New Year’s resolutions announced.  […]

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 […]

I’m taking my own advice!

We’re working on office spaces in the Move It Plus Program this month, so I thought I’d take a good look at MY office! For a while now, I’ve been feeling stagnant and non-productive in my office, so I knew I needed to “move some stuff,” but I couldn’t see the vision of what to really […]

Celebrate a New Season!

Spring has Sprung! Happy spring everyone in the Northern hemisphere! It’s time to clean up the mudroom, sweep off the front porch, and welcome the new energies of springtime into the home. Is there some spring cleaning that you could do that would quickly freshen up your home? I’m thinking cleaning the windows or hosing […]

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 […]

Making Good Boundaries and Getting Along with Family

After listening to many of my friends talk about their turbulent relationships with their parents, I consider myself very lucky. My mom and I get along very well and when my dad was alive, we got along great too. But I know it’s not like that for everyone. For those of you who are more […]

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 […]
