When you feel lonely, ask the feeling what it is trying to tell you?” – Sivan Garr

Loneliness has been my biggest struggle in life. My fear of facing the feeling drove me to all sorts of distractions both healthy and, more frequently, not so.

It wasn’t until my friend suggested I stop running away when I feel lonely that I realized just how far I go to avoid the feeling.

Once I stopped running, loneliness hit me like a falling brick wall.

I found I could only bear the feeling for a short time and then I had to find something to distract me: netflix, chocolate, more coffee…!

But over time, I had enough strength to develop a relationship with loneliness. It had a voice, and it had so much to say!

I can’t say I’m free from feeling lonely, but I can say I no longer try to be. I accept the feeling as a member of my “feeling’s committee” with equal right to sit at the table and share its message.


What would it be like to stop running away from feeling lonely?
What causes it to come up?
What does it have to say?

Karen M:

Salvatore came to my house nearly a year ago for a feng shui consult.  He has a lovely presence and was very warm and perceptive.  We walked through each room of my apartment and he offered terrific, insightful feedback that fit me to a tee.  I have slowly (and without spending much money) made changes to my space, one room at a time.  My house feels so warm and more like me.  I am always getting feedback from friends about how inviting my home is.  I feel like feng shuing my home was the foundation for the rest of my life.  As I look back over the year, I see all the positive changes that have occurred, and I feel like this was the catalyst.  Treat yourself to a consult with Salvatore!!

Work Life Balance

Work Life Balance

Five principles to help you create the Work-Life Balance you want.

This year, I had to make my way back from burn-out. I was working too much and living too little. I set out to shift my life and came up with five principles of a Work-Life Balance. This Fall has become the season of “More Being and Less Doing”!

The Elusive “Work-Life Balance”

It is a stand-out goal for most, and yet, the concept of a work-life balance is still vague at best. Part of that is in it’s uniqueness to each individual, and part of that is the difficulty of quantifying what it means.

Secrets to Vision Boarding

Secrets to Vision Boarding

In 1992 I created a collage of images that inspired me. Immediately, things started shifting in my life that were inexplicably synched up to that collage, and the shifts continued unfolding for years. My accidental discovery of the art Vision Boarding sparked a thirst for just how it is that we can create and turn dreams into reality.

Having taught, written, and practiced Vision Boarding over the decades, I’ve learned secrets that separate successful vision boards from those that are just pretty images.
