“The mind is everything. What you think you become. ~Buddha.
Humans are creatures of habit. We tend to follow the picture in our minds created by our parents, our peers, and the part of the world we’re from.
But the good news is that we don’t have to! We each have a mind of our own, capable of imagining life the way we want it, on our own terms.
Start imagining your life exactly the way you want it. Create a picture in your mind and think about that picture consistently, all day long. And the most important part… believe in it. Read more »
Feng shui is the ancient art and science of balancing the energies of your physical space so that the energy or “chi” flows gently and smoothly through your home and business environment.
It’s based on the concept that everything in your
environment is made out of energy, and has a life force or energy called “chi.”
It’s pretty simple… It just feels good – and supports what you want out of life – whether it’s a better career, new romance, improved health, or more income. (FYI… Feng Shui is NOT a meditation practice, a religion, or a New Age cult.) Read more »

You’re not broken. You were never broken. You’re actually perfect, and you’re exactly where you are supposed to be on your journey.
Like most people, I’ve experienced immense heartbreak in my life and could write a whole book about the pain caused by the (conscious and unconscious) selfish, vicious acts of humans that I’ve witnessed and endured.
Much like you, I’ve done a ton of every type of personal development and holistic healing work – I love it like Lady Gaga loves crazy hats. One of my biggest realizations EVER came this year when I realized, through my meditations, that as a soul having a human experience, no one can actually hurt me emotionally without my permission.

How to Use Spiritual Principles from Disney to Create Your Own Happily Ever After…
A lot of adults, including many of my friends, really have something against Disney. They think they’re all about selling chotchkes and making money … I even had a conversation with a guy who said Disney is evil and their message is harmful to children, making them think that they can be princesses, everything will work out perfectly in the end; your prince charming is out there and you’ll live happily ever after.
Well, that’s exactly what I want my daughter Violet to grow up believing. Instead of the common limiting beliefs like, “life is never easy” or “no pain, no gain”, I want her to know what took me most of my life to discover:believe in fairy-tales, believe in magic, believe that anything that you want to create is possible and your prince charming is waiting, so never stop until you create that.

Nature Cheers The Heart & Brightens The Mood
This is just my theory, but I think it’s impossible to be sad or depressed while smelling the scent of orange!
The scent of orange or orange essential oil adds an uplifting quality to blends and combines especially well with lavender, rose, and spice oils like clove bud.
Another one of my favorites around the holidays is the scent of clove, which just so happens to go perfectly with orange. Clove buds or clove bud oil is a sweet, spicy aroma that’s familiar and comforting, and also happens to be anti-microbial. Clove bud adds warmth to blends containing lavender, bergamont, and clary sage.
Here’s one of my favorite recipes for easy at-home holiday comfort to beat the winter blues.
