Choosing what you allow and keep in your life gives you a sense of having control of your happiness and your future. If you are hoarder, or living a cluttered existence with too many material possessions, know that it is limiting your spiritual growth and personal fulfillment. The path to enlightenment is not paved with stuff… and more stuff. Maybe it’s time to rid yourself of those things that no longer serve a purpose in your life?
Releasing clutter is a mental thing.

Have you ever heard of the term ‘monkey mind?’ It originates from ancient Chinese and Japanese Buddhist teachings. We all experience it from time to time. In contrast to thinking clearly, monkey mind feels restless, unsettled, unfocused and uncontrollable. We think too much about the next text message, passing an exam, being able to pay next month’s bills, and whatever else lies in our fear centers.
This state of mind can take over if not managed, resulting in high anxiety. We lose our ability to think or to connect with what lies beneath these runaway thoughts. Our thoughts adopt a distorted sense of reality; we act on them only to find that the other person has no idea what we are talking about. Read the rest of this entry »
Venus reflects how we give and receive love to others and ourselves. With this transit, we are being made aware of our past, including past lives, as well as breaking free from any conditioning or people who no longer serve us.
I would consider this time to be a key transitional phase for moving our lives forward and mending anything within us that still needs attention. We are clearing out the old to open up to the new opportunities on the horizon.
For those in committed relationships, flaws or communication issues may come up. It will be to your advantage to mend fences or realize that if the love is no longer there, it may be time to move on. Read the rest of this entry »
I love lavender. It is the one herb and essential oil that most people love and it has many benefits, including helping you relax and sleep better. It is one of the few oils that can be used on babies and is well-tolerated by most people. Besides smelling amazing, the plant also looks fabulous!
Essential oils are the healing properties found in plants and can be very therapeutic. Essential oils are an easy way to get the healing properties of herbs into your life and they are less messy. Lavender is relatively inexpensive and readily available at most pharmacies and health food stores.
Please check with your health practitioner before using any essential oils or herbs, especially if you are not well, or taking medication. Never use these products if you are pregnant or nursing. Read the rest of this entry »
Color therapy is a well-established practice when it comes to putting right what could be wrong in our lives – be it emotional or physical. The ways in which we can make use of color are broad and varied.
For example, we can wear color in our clothes and jewelry, burn gorgeous colored candles, cook beautifully colored foods, work with color while meditating and even bathe in color when we so wish.
Color therapy can also be beneficially applied in our romantic life. So, whether your are single or in a relationship, why not consider applying a little color therapy magic to your romantic life?

We are aware your many forms of communication here on this planet. The one we would like to speak of today is your social media. Just allow yourself to relax. Feeling your body coming down and calming down into this beautiful sacred space of healing today.
Feel your spiritual council come in to surround you, to uplift you with their love, their light, their inspiration. They serve as a bridge, a bridge to the spiritual realm. A bridge to helping you to stay grounded, helping you to remember who you are and why you came here.

Himalayan salt lamps naturally purify the air through ionization. Studies indicate that as much as a third of the world’s population reacts adversely to negative ions, and many people report that the air becomes easier to breathe when using a salt lamp.
Larger versions of these lamps, ideally hand-carved from the natural rock salt, are attractive and come in shades of red, amber, and cream. No two are alike! They weigh between 25 and 32 pounds and each will treat a space up to 320 square feet. Apart from the tabletop versions, did you know they are also available in a larger, half-dome size? Like their smaller versions, these lamps have multiple health benefits: relief from asthma and allergies, low energy, sleeplessness, and attention deficit. Read the rest of this entry »
So, the year 2017 is finally well on its way, and already those new year’s resolutions are beginning to falter for some. I, like so many people, also have made my new year’s resolutions. I want to be more positive, more focused and more available to the ones that need me. I also want to lose weight, eat more healthily and get more exercise. These are my promises to myself, but will I live up to them? That’s a good question.
Why do we make these resolution and then not follow through? I have found that I do much better if I focus on just one. Creating unrealistic expectations for yourself will only set you up to fail. Plan ahead, and have the tools and attitude to succeed. A positive attitude is crucial to success with your resolutions. You have to believe you can do this! Read the rest of this entry »
