Spring is all about freshness, color, and vibrant energy. As we come out of winter our pace is
Society has created somewhat of a paradigm, mostly through commercialization, that the holidays are about spending, gluttony, and the like. Society often messages us, that, to be alone means being lonely, yet nothing can be further from the truth. Feeling lonely can occur in the most crowded of places and spaces. When we feel lonely, our energetic vibration is lower and out of balance. With some helpful Feng Shui tips below you can raise the vibration of your space, which
One of the ways to get a jump on the New Year is begin goal setting in November. By setting goals in November, you’ll find the holidays more relaxing and have the mental space to truly be grateful for all that you currently have in your life. You may even find that you are excited to begin accomplishing your goals. But before you begin your goal setting process, start with listing your accomplishments from this current year which could be
I love autumn. Growing up in the Midwest with an active, athletic family, I loved, and still love, being in the beauty of autumn: the crunching sound of fallen leaves under my feet, the smell of a burning fire, cashmere sweaters, and football season. Fall is a time for gathering. It is also a time for shedding as leaves start falling off the trees in preparation for winter hibernation. Nature gets quieter, sunsets are softer. If we take our clues
In Feng Shui, the health area of any space or room is located in the center. For example, look at your home from a bird’s eye view, the center is most likely defined with a support beam, wall, or closet. Pay attention to this area. Is the closet cluttered?

The Summer Solstice (begins June 21) is almost upon us. Summer Solstice is the longest day of the year and heralds in color, play, active and light-filled, summer days. I love the mood of summer.
This month’s article is about what to do after one is organized. Don’t worry if you’re not actually organized because by moving in the direction of visualizing being organized is the first step of actual organization. But remember: being organized gives you the gift of time. The question becomes: what will you do with this time?
THE PROCESS BEFORE TAKING ACTION
Many times after I’ve helped a client organize a beautiful, functional space they’ll ask, “ok, now what”?Being organized, knowing where things go, being able to find things, and having a “to do” list of priorities is one thing, but taking action on these priorities is another challenge altogether. Before taking action comes the very key step of “thinking or processing”.
Here’s how it works:
Step #1: Make your “to do list” then prioritize what needs to be done.
Step #2: Within each priority think about how long it will take you to actually get the priority accomplished and if you need to drive somewhere include drive time. Visualize the process you’ll use for getting your priority done. List any supplies, inventory, or additional resources you’ll need to execute.
