Winter Solstice

Sunrise

The Winter Solstice brings us the longest night and as such, a time for contemplation, meditation and going within. It is also a time of celebration as the sun is being “reborn” with the light increasing a little more each day. The duality of internal, quiet reflection and joyous, communal celebration is yin and yang at its best.

 

Feng Shui Tips for the Winter Solstice:

  • Reflect – A full-length mirror, ideally positioned near the entrance of a room, allows a moment’s reflection. Take time to lovingly assess yourself and acknowledge where you are and where you wish to go before crossing the threshold.
  • Snuggle – Keep a few extra throw blankets around and use table cloths to cover hard surfaces to generate a feeling of warmth throughout the home. Winter is an ideal time to break normal hectic routines and spend time wrapped up in coziness, especially by the fire.
  • Light – Coming home to a dark house can be disquieting, but if you have a few lamps on timers you get to enter to a warm glow. And there’s no better time of year to light a candle or two. It quiets the mind and celebrates the end of the darkness and beginning of light that is the Winter Solstice.
  • Flow – A water fountain is the must have item for the season! Not only does does it create a soothing feeling and encourage the release of stress, it inspires the flow of ideas, ignites abundance, and on a practically level, adds moisture during the dry winter months to improve your health.
  •  Rest – Long dark winter nights give us the opportunity to relax and restore. Spoil yourself with new, soft bed linens and give yourself permission to go to bed early.

Wishing everyone a peaceful and joyous holiday season and most amazing New Year!

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

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.

2017 Chinese New Year

The Year of the Sheep

The most important of Chinese Holidays, the Lunar New Year, is a full 15 days of festivities beginning with the “Reunion Dinner” just before the New Moon (February 18) and ending with the “Red Lantern Festival” on the Full Moon.

In America, the celebrations in Chinatown’s include the “Chinese New Year Parade.” The biggest and the first parade of its kind began in San Francisco, and this year it will be held on Saturday, March 7.
