Stop Life-Sucking Fears

Stop Life-Sucking Fears

Your fears rob you of energy, enjoyment of the moment, and add weight from stress responses.  The atmosphere is filled with anxiety as you are dragging yourself from one room to another.

Think of your life-sucking fears as ghosts talking to you all the time like, “I’m anxious”, “I don’t want to shop”, “I can’t go to the beach” or “I can’t eat out at my favorite restaurant”.

“Hands up, surrender,” the fears say.  Oh, the ghost talk! “Shut up!” you scream.  Yet the voices are still there.  Do you feel like you are caught up in the endless repeat cycle?

Take a deep breath and hit that “pause button”, my friend.  What would happen if you said, “Boo!” to your ghosts?  A few simple adjustments can stop the life-sucking fears.


Life-Sucking Fear Antidote

There is a life-sucking fear antidote.  Yes, really.  Claim your life back, claiming that part of you that is lost.  The way back to “you” is with self-love, acceptance, and patience.  Develop the desire to learn new things that keep your mind growing.  Create the self-confidence to risk going outside your comfort zone.

Fears hold power as we put energy into what could happen again.  Then putting even more energy into not wanting an event to happen again.  Feeding more and more energy really is creating a thought-form.  Energy is real and grows with the thought and energy directed at it.  Where is your energy currently directed?

We need a shot in the arm of self-love, along with choosing a different thought.  Acknowledging fear is a powerful tool to use to bring you back to a calmer center.  Keeping your routine as much as possible allows you to feel like you have control of your life again.

So let’s get started with the “Life-Sucking Fear” technique:

  • Breathe deeply.
  • Hit your “pause” button.
  • Acknowledge the fear and shrink it down small enough to hold in your hand.
  • Now laugh.
  • State what you want to say to the fear or fears.

“Yes, but” is another life-sucking fear

“Yes, but” is another life-sucking fear we must be aware of and take immediate countermeasures.  It is so subtle it is often missed as negativity.  Everyone uses the “Yes, but” – the clarion call of resistance.  Listen and track yourself for a week of how many “Yes, buts” you have. You might just be amazed.

Awareness of your thoughts and actions is a game-changer to improve lowering your anxiety and more easily face fear.  What do you think you are going to lose?  Is the cost of not moving forward with an action?  What does it look like?

Invite friends and family to join in a game of facing fears.  Is there a theme of the “Yes, butting’, around finances, health, confinement, the virus, or others?  Have prizes for those overcoming their resistance and improving.  Make it a weekly event in person for small groups or on Zoom or FaceTime.

“Stay away from negative people. They have a problem for every solution”. – Albert Einstein

Dial down fear and take a break

Dial down fear levels.  I like to use a dial to see where my uncomfortable level is at.  Then use the technique below to effectively lower the fear.

I’ve shared this with clients in hypnotherapy.  One client said, ” I love the visual dial and it has a greater impact and connection for me.”

The dial is a very useful tool and uses both the visual with the left and right sides of the brain.  Also, it will immediately show your resistance at that moment.  If the dial will only go down one number that is great.  Any lowering of the dial is good.  Ask yourself, “What does this fear look like?  Can I shrink it down?”  Then try and to move the dial down again.

Power Dial technique:

  • See a dial with the numbers  1 to 10.
  • Take 3 deep breaths.
  • Ask yourself, “What is the first number that comes to me?”
  • Write that number down.
  • Imagine you turning down the dial 2 numbers.  (If you feel resistance, it won’t go down further.)  That’s okay.

You can do this at any time or place.  Use it and open up to the notion that you have another option to help you achieve your goals.

Create a Room in Your Garden with Feng Shui

Create a room in your garden with Feng Shui

By creating a room in your garden with Feng Shui you can increase your living space.  This is often an overlooked and underused space.  The “garden room” is an ever-changing place that meets many needs for each person.

In these challenging times creating a garden room can help improve your overall health.  Scientific studies from Harvard and Cambridge have shown that places to relax and gather lowers stress and boosts the immune system.  Feng Shui also helps lower stress by bringing balance to your life.  A slower pace is shown to help mental, physical, emotional, and spiritual health.

How will you use the garden or patio area, which is really an outside room?  You can use this outdoor room to relax, a space for writing inspiration, a family gathering area, or a quiet place to regain your balance.

My garden room was created by using the principles of Feng Shui.  It is a place where so many activities in my life take place –  like having morning coffee, afternoon tea, happy hour, writing, sitting, reading, a private retreat, or a romantic time with my hubby under the stars.  Feng Shui allows the balance of flowing from one activity to another.  It brings a different feeling with each activity by expanding the space as visual space, internal space, and balance.  Try some of the suggestions below in your space.

Miracles do happen in this space (see the bird pictured above).  A wonderful Merlin came to visit me one afternoon as I was writing.  He stayed for about ten minutes or more, about ten feet from my cat and me.  We all were in the moment where time was suspended in this magic visit.

Defining Your Garden Room

By defining your garden room, it will save you time and money. Take a look around your yard and patio.  What things do you notice about this space?  Is it inviting?  Do you cringe as you see piles of unused stuff?  If your place is less than ideal, it can be changed.  Give yourself a few moments to reflect on the scenes, sounds, and objects that bring you a sense of well-being and happiness.

Cut out some pictures of gardens or patios you love.  What features draw you the most and evoke a response like:                  “I feel calm.”                                                                                                                                                                                                                     “I love the sounds.”                                                                                                                                                                                                      “I can see us all being together here having dinners with friends and birthday parties.”                                                    “This a place I can kick off my shoes and just relax.”

What theme do you see in this garden room – an English garden, a mysterious Asian setting, a Zen garden, a party area, blocking out the neighbor’s ugly yard, using trees as a sound buffer?  Do you want it all open or partially enclosed?  You can design it by using what you already have.  Let those feelings guide you.  Hear that inner voice like a bird singing in your ear, giving you a clear path to your dream garden room.

Define those settings which evoke a deep sense of peaceful relaxation or watching your children play and grow, a place for the pets to stretch and explore.   Discover more about a Feng Shui Sanctuary.

Creating a Garden Room

Table ready for a dinner party in the backyard

What are the elements you need to create your garden room?  Is there a view you want to frame or do you want to create one?  What about furniture – do want comfy, mission style, or contemporary?  Is this room for one or many?  Highlight a water feature or garden area, or even several areas.  These visual pictures bring a sense of balance and welcome you.  Feng Shui is balanced in practice.

Be sure to have several different levels of lighting for interest and depth.  Does a birdhouse delight you, or do you want a birdbath to watch nature?  You can have planters of cedar or beautiful ceramics as part of your dream.

Fling open the doors of creativity.  Let each member of the family contribute in some way to this new space.  It can be simple, a country affair, elegant, or somewhere in the middle.  The canvas is yours to paint.

Adapters Survive – Are You One?

Adapters Survive – Are You One?

Adapters survive.  Are you an adapter?  When you are down and faced with a hard decision, what do you do?  Slide to the floor, and cry?  Look in the mirror and say, “Why me?”.   After you are done with that, you look around and say there has to be an answer.  Is it solvable?  You start to review what went wrong and how can you resolve this problem.  Learning to adapt is a trial and error process, and setbacks are a part of going forward.  It is all feedback.

Your ability to meet new circumstances and how fast can you change while being centered and grounded can increase your survival rate.  In nature, the species that survive have the ability to adapt best.  Be like the camel – it can overcome the harshest terrain and environment time and time again.  Successful people learn how to minimize stress while moving forward.

You survive by reinventing yourself and drawing upon inner resources and then you can learn new ones quickly.  When we name something our mind more accurately conditions our mindset.  We either claim it in the positive or the negative.


**Mindset Examples:

  • I am happy
  • I am sad.
  • I have a virus.  It’s fatal.
  • I will survive it.
  • I cannot afford that.  I can save and afford it.
Mindset is the king.  Your mind and emotions have to respond when you feel something.  You can change that next thought to a more loving, productive, and positive one.

Characteristics of an Adapter

Characteristics of an adapter are those that include a positive mindset, which is a skill to lower the fear level quickly and uses a setback as a stepping stone.  Adapters use their energy wisely.  They recognize fear and worry which drains their reservoirs when things go wrong.  They accept responsibility with no complaining.

Take a moment.  How would you describe yourself?  Happy – sad – helpless – confident – tall – average – visual learner – an introvert or extrovert?  Where did you learn that?  When did you accept those labels that keep in that place?  These simple answers can open the doors to a new life and becoming an Adapter.

**Characteristics of an Adapter:                                                                                                                                                                           

  • A positive mindset
  • Action taker
  • Setbacks are taken in stride
  • The fear level lowers quickly
  • Persistence and resilience
  • Accurately sees a situation and responds effectively
  • Keeps active and sociable
  • Uses energy wisely
  • They like themselves
  • Can laugh at themselves
  • Able to balance work and home life
  • Don’t complain endlessly
  • Finds a solution

Change your mindset and change your world – is just a thought away.  As a hypnotherapist, I have spent decades helping clients update their mindset, learn self-healing, and call on their inner resources and experience.  This has helped them to get a better job, get married, or start a business.  They learn the tools and a system to move where they want to go.  Learning to create a positive mindset and self-healing are lifesavers.  My clients and I use these skills to overcome being struck by lightning and many other setbacks, and so can you!

Your Mindset Holds the Key

Your mindset holds the key to being an adapter.  A positive mindset moves life forward with ease, as well as health, relationships, and manifesting.  It gives you the backbone and courage to move forward.  By updating filters, our beliefs create a better life.  Adapters take action after reviewing a situation and then have a plan to react in the moment.  Trusting with their inner guidance allows them to take risks to move forward.

Take a moment to reflect on your level of living – ar you satisfied, or not?  Has this been a long-standing condition?  Look at your beliefs – is there one or two you are ready to let go of now?  The act of realizing that a limiting belief allows more good to flow in.

Create a mindset that supports your dreams

Creating a mindset that supports your dreams is the first step to being an adapter.  When you are desperate, you are open to changescommitted to change, and then your life will change.  Without commitment, you are like a weak signal on the radio.  Fire up that intention.  Small changes over time make large improvements and changes. 

**Steps to create a new mindset:

  • Make images of yourself confident and strong with positive outcomes.
  • Face and acknowledge your fears.
  • Relive over and over the times you changed a few things and succeeded.
  • Know what those changes stand for.
  • Set long term goals that you are passionate about.
  • Ask for help.
  • Prepare and take action.

Testimonial about a positive mindset:

“Darielle helped me deal with the death of my husband.  She assisted me in dealing with my loss and to be able to move through the pain to return to life.  I had both positive and rapid results.  She uses a variety of techniques in her work, all of which have required active participation on my part.  She recognizes the relationship between the body, mind, and emotions.  I have returned to her for help with my knee.  Darielle works on all levels of the situation where the root cause can be dealt with rather than the symptoms.  I am grateful for her rare talents and abilities.”                                                                                                                                                 CS, Kent, Washington

3 Ways to Boost Your Immune System

3 Ways to Boost Your Immune System

Can it be that easy in 3 steps to boost your immune system? Yes, it can.  The multilevel intimate relationship we have with our immune system is influenced by everything we do, like eating and feeling.

For that reason let us first let us examine what takes down your immune system:   Anxiety, lack of physical activity, worry, too much alcohol, sugar, carbs, lack of sleep, confinement, current events, and fear.

Self-examination is an important step towards boosting your immune system.  Feeling secure and in control lessens the stress on your immune system.  Facts help calm the mind down and allow you to see the larger picture.  Anxiety is about future worry that something bad is going to happen.

1.  Boost Your Immune System with Food

Boosting your immune system with food is like having your own cheering squad.  Food is not only a way to share a meal, but it is loaded with vitamins and minerals.

Yeah, yeah,  we hear all the time about how well certain foods are for your immune system and you know those things that keep you healthy.  Food stops inflammation to your brain, joints, and your whole body.  So, why are you resisting?  Are you saying, “No” to helping yourself?  You do not have to change your whole life,  just a few adjustments — even one can be of enormous help to your body and mind.

Here are some foods to help you:

  • Omega-3s
  • Salmon and tuna
  • Nuts:  almonds, walnuts, pistachios, Brazil nuts, cashews
  • Apricots
  • Avocados
  • Kale
  • Spinach

Food that increases inflammation:

The food that increases inflammation is in the nightshade family:  eggplant, tomatoes, and potatoes.  However, don’t cut out all the things below, but limit them.  When I eliminated these foods entirely for 3 years, it made an amazing difference.

  • Sugar
  • Red meat
  • High fats
  • Dairy
  • Cheese
  • Alcohol

2.  Activity is an important part of boosting your immune system.

Being active releases toxins out of your organs and moves it out as waste.  It can be outside or inside activity, as long as you move for 10 or 30 minutes, 3 times a day.  Added benefits to activity are that it lowers your stress, calms your emotions, and relaxes your body and brain.  Gardening is one of the best mind calmers and then you get to enjoy your flowers and veggies.  Walking with others is a time to share and feel more connected.


  • Walking with others or yourself
  • Swimming
  • Reading
  • Creative Cooking
  • Taking care of inside plants or outside Gardening
  • Enjoy 15 minutes of sunshine

3.  Laughter and Relaxation

Laughter and relaxation can immensely add to the quality of your life and that of your children and friends. Why?  These free elements give the mind, body, and soul the channels in which to run.  Laughter and joy bring up the energy level and invites others to join in.  It lifts any burden of your whole place.  Loving plants, animals, and even your whole property helps you feel uplifted.

Hot Bonus Tip!

Sea Salt and Sage:  If you are concerned about negative energy and people this is a good tip to clear your energy and your home.  Mix a 1/2 tsp sage spice with sea salt in a small dish and leave by the front door or do several around the home.

Eliminate Germs and Viruses with UV-C Light

I had a light-bulb moment and I want to share with you in finding ways to overcome “Shelter in Place”.   My clients are complaining that their hands are looking red and worn from all the extra washing and cleaning. Revelation time – I’ve used UV-C light technology products for years to clean and sanitize cabinets, counters, and the air to combat germs, mold, and viruses.  Enjoy the article and cut your cleaning time.

Eliminate Germs and Viruses with UV-C Light

Eliminate germs and viruses with UV-C light by eliminating those unpleasant smells, from bacteria, shoes, closets, and cell phones.  These challenging times increase our anxiety, so how do we solve the cleaning and sanitizing issues we are encountering?  The power of UV-C Light has been used extensively for decades.

Ultraviolet Light Disinfection and Green Technology have been around for 50 years.  It is well documented that hospitals have used ultraviolet light for infectious diseases.  It has also been used in commercial applications to sanitize air and water treatments, cleaning floors, counters, and bedding.

A jingle I made up goes “Germs Go Poof with UV-C light”.  I have used this technology for over 15 years for sinuses.  Later it helped me to clean without chemicals while recovering from an autoimmune issue for the last 3 years.  I believe it helped me heal faster as my immune system wasn’t fighting dirty air and extra elements.  I love the power of technology to help us.

The Benefits of UV-C Air Sanitizers

UV-C light sanitizes and sterilizes the air by way of killing dust mites, bacteria, viruses, and germs.  I have used my Germ Guardian air purifier for more than 15 years and I find the air smells better.  UV-C light renders the microorganisms harmless by disrupting its ability to reproduce.  This is why it is effective against odors.  Cleaning is a way of life for allergy, asthma sufferers, and cancer survivors while washing and sanitizing clothes, bedding, or floors on a daily basis.  Sometimes the chemical smell and harshness adds to the problem.

Cleaning the home without chemicals mentally allows you to relax and gives you more energy to heal and recover faster.  The fresh clean smell that clothes receive from the power of the sun’s cleansing and sanitizing light properties is now available in UV-C sanitizing products.

The more we use this UV-C light technology, the more we experience the wonders of UV-C light.  This is one of the best inventions of this century.   Now you have the opportunity to use the same powerful light in your own environment.

Do you hate opening the front door to be met with the locker room smell from the odor and bacteria smell from our shoes?  We know that smell when a friend visits our home. It is one of the first things we change when we have company.  Kill that stinky smell using the germicidal for 15 minutes.  It has been clinically proven to kill germs, bacteria, viruses, and fungus.  No more dirty, smelly-shoes-smell!

Sanitize that Cell Phone, Face Coverings, and Keys

Sanitize your cell phone

During these challenging times, we love our cell phones and the many options they give us, including the germs on our faces and ears.  Phones you carry and hold against your face carry more germs than your toilet.

Now there is UV-C light technology that will keep your phone clean, face coverings and masks, keys, and any small object that needs to be sanitized.  It saves you money and it is green, too.  What’s not to like?



Be sure to check here for some UV-C products!

Three Benefits of Developing Your Intuition

Three Benefits of Developing Your Intuition

Three benefits of developing your intuition is a way of living that allows you to remain calm in the midst of chaos, fear, and laughter.  Developing this innate ability is one of the best things we can do for ourselves.  In troubled times your intuition can show you the way forward.

I have enjoyed the benefits of intuition as a way of life.  It has been an interesting one and continues to be while fulfilling my dreams, from traveling and meeting wonderful people on this walk.  This intuitive path is always there and opens to anyone who develops this natural ability.

Let this short article help you begin your walk.  As I sit here looking out over a valley on this warm sunny day, I feel so blessed to be right here right now and sharing this information with you.  Most people blow off simple steps as not being valuable.  I was one of those, until as I saw over and over again the things I wanted started to manifest — like my love of travel, manifesting free trips and meeting people who changed my life.  Every day has become an adventure.  I invite you on this journey.

Here are Three Benefits of Intuition

  1.  People who develop their intuition take time to enjoy life’s moments.  They slow down to the speed of being present and hear what others are saying.  There is deep listening to being heard.
  2.  The ability to be patient while manifesting becomes inner peace.  Knowing inner peace allows the intuitive to understand there is movement, even in the presence of no forward motion.
  3. While hearing the voice of intuition, there is an urge to do this or go to a different way home. Increased confidence is experienced while using intuition and decisive actions are made.

Opening to Intuition

Opening to intuition begins with quieting your mind and body.   It is in the quiet that intuition can be heard the best.  Take several deep breaths – if you can do this outside it is better.  Think of an easy question you would like an answer to, or that you already know.  You are building trust.  Start small and slowly build trust and confidence.  The same way you build relationships, small steps, and sharing.

  • Breathe in – to a count of 3, Hold 3, Exhale 3.
  • Now ask your question.
  • How did the answer come to you?  Was it a feeling, a flash of insight, or did you hear something?
  • Now practice and record your outcomes.

The Path of Intuition

The path of intuition is filled with many wonderful walks to an amazing way of life.  This journey will last a lifetime, and as you begin to harness this natural gift it becomes a beautiful part of being human.  As you deepen the connection to your spirit and environment, you begin to experience a new rhythm.  The path of intuition is an inner dance with your vibration and frequency.

Being relaxed and open is the start of this path of intuition.  Think for a moment about a day where projects worked out easily – or on vacation just being present and open – and how what you wanted just seemed to be there.  It was as though you were lead from one success to another.

That is alignment.  It is like you know what to do and when while enjoying a ride.  Having no resistance to the outcome is a sign that your inner belief has now become a mindset that provides you the inner resources to accomplish your dreams.

Use the above steps to help you today and every day.

Enjoy the benefits,

Transforming Tips for a Great New Year and Decade

Transforming Tips for a Great New Year and Decade

We hear it every year, “What is your New Year’s resolution?”  The reality is that a new resolution is about evolving and taking transforming steps.  The coming year is having more of what you want like, “I want to lose weight, get out of debt, recycle more, protect the planet and pets.”  So we make these long lists of what we want before completing them and we know we will never do half of what is on that list this year.  Hold on, there is a way to begin accomplishing your wish list.

Transforming Tips:

  • Ask yourself, “What one thing to do I want to change?”
  • Take 3 deep breaths while calming your mind and bringing yourself into balance.
  • Think of what you want to change again and send your thoughts and energy to it.
  • Sit and listen to any thoughts or images that surface (allow time for this).
  • Write down what you received.
  • Practice what you received.

The secret is to take one thing and then “do it”.  Our brains can do one thing and do it well for the new year.  By focusing on one thing it does not raise our doubts and fears.  We can make our dreams come to fruition by using the above steps.  As you encourage your intuition, it will help you while keeping your balance.

Just “One” Thing Can Start the Decade

Just “one” thing can start the decade off on the right foot.  You have the opportunity to make the new year better and set the stage for an enriching decade.  The first 90 days of a new decade is processing the last year and last decade of areas needing improvements and accomplishments.  So use that 90 days to overhaul that one area you want to improve.

For me, this year is about having more fun and going through my boxes of books in the garage.  Upon entering the garage I am overwhelmed.  If I take one box and go to my favorite place and put on some great music, my previous chore has now become pleasurable.  It has been my experience that generally, instead of just one box, I find that suddenly I have gone through 5 boxes.  Gee,  only 100 more to go!  I will keep you updated on my progress.

Good Deeds Keep Your Energy Up

Good deeds keep your energy up.  It is healing to give and share with others.  I have been the recipient of the “pay it forward” experience on several occasions.  It is a surprise event and instantly warms my heart.

The same is true if you are the one buying someone a cup of coffee or a latte.  It can fill the heart with goodwill and the other person will be so grateful.

A gift membership to a gym, museum, or animal park can benefit children or adults.  Donate old towels, sheets, dish towels, extra paper towels to animal shelters.

Collect coats and gloves for ones who need them.  Is there a single mom or elderly person that could use help?  Just an hour or two could make a world of difference to them.  Perhaps donate time to someone at work who has been ill and needs some vacation or sick leave time.

Being Green Saves Green

Being green saves green – like using reusable containers, soaps, and cleaners.  Lower your carbon footprint when possible like using environmentally friendly toys and games made of wood which are non-toxic for children.  LED lights save energy and everything put on a timer can save electricity.  Give green and eco-friendly toys, gadgets and technology, such as a tablet or an e-reader which saves the environment.

The planet is a living being, too.  Let’s help her when we can and she will continue to help us.  Green is Good.

5 Color Tips to Gain the Edge

5 Color Tips to Gain the Edge

Requests are pouring in from clients and those I helped in some way this year like,  “Help me feel better now or give me further tips, ideas, and strategies to make myself, my home or office feel different”.  I’m happy to share a few secrets I use.

Enjoy these tips of the techniques shared in my book The Thriving Code:  A Guide For Healing and Energy Protection .  Use these tips below to gain the edge now.  Sounds good, but does it seem possible?  I am here to give you the keys to help you.  And add a little Feng Shui to your home or environment and enjoy the benefits.

5 Color Tips to Gain the Edge:

1.  Add a new color to your wardrobe
2.  A crystal paperweight
3.  Hang a picture of nature
4.  Paint an outside door
5.  Change a lampshade color

Color and Success

Using color, crystals and Feng Shui changes an environment from boring to wow!  In some places, these changes calm down the noise.  What does that mean to you?  Confidence, clarity, carry through, clearing clutter, social savvy and being more relaxed.  Attitude plus Environment equals Altitude.  These two elements play key roles in supporting or undermining success.

In my hypnosis practice, I have helped thousands of people achieve greater success, improve relationships, gain more energy and satisfaction in life.  Let’s face it, we all want an advantage in our jobs, relationships, and life.

Color is your secret sauce and is one of the easiest ways to change or shift the feel of your home or office.  Many studies in science have shown the positive effects of color in our everyday life.

Many people sit in a dull and crab gray cubicle at work and this environment takes away your energy.  Hang a beautiful nature scene with lots of green and watch how much better you immediately feel.  Now you are ready to tackle that project you have been putting off!

Simple Color Key:   

Green – Increases productivity
Sky Blue – Communication;  Helps when taking tests
Medium Blue – Relaxing or working on the computer
Apricot – Good for starting new health programs
Red – Good when going out, use sparingly at work.  More emotional in nature and it stirs mental activity.
Pink – Calming color                                                                                                                                                                                            Pale colors have a gentler impact.  Bold colors have a stronger impact.


Lighting is so important with major impacts, not to mention the health benefits of good lighting on the eyes and a positive mindset.  Adding a brighter light for a lamp or changing the color of a lampshade works wonders.


Add a new pretty scarf or tie to a favorite jacket or suit.  Look at your own wardrobe.  What colors do you wear the most and why?  Do they make you feel comfortable or confident?  Do you use those same colors in your home or office for the same effect?  The answers can help you take the feel-good feeling everywhere. Add some bling and jewelry to those gray, brown, and black outfits.  Fashion pins can make a statement and give you instant visibility.

Paint an outside door a new color

Paint your outside door if you want to move, but can’t right now.  Replacing that old door with a new brighter or calmer color can work wonders when driving into your driveway.  This change may be just what you and your family need to have a new more positive association with your home.

Paint a lobby wall

Changing the color of one wall can make a place pop and sizzle or be calmer and peaceful.  A warm color on a lobby wall can make a place seem warmer when living in a cold climate.  It makes us think and feel a place is a warmer temperature.  I painted my inside wall a nice cranberry and it brought out the red oak floors – my home felt warm and cozy.  Give it a try and see.

Crystals bring on the Bling!

Crystals have an amazing ability to reflect light and banish those dark corners.  They also ground and stabilize that area.  You can use a clear crystal, amethyst, blue, or green.  Crystals can be used to ground and stabilize an area.  They also illuminate different aspects of a situation.

That lovely crystal bowl can add bling to the room and be brought out for special occasions.  A crystal paperweight lightens the energy and adds focus.  The amethyst crystal is also good for pain and confidence.

Inspiring nature pictures boost productivity

Brighten that office or gray cubicle – the brain loves depth and green.  Having a picture filled with green and a blue sky will help feel relaxed and productive at the same time.  That is not to say that an ocean scene or desert scene you love needs to be left out.  Just add some green around your desk with a mouse pad or a green stone like malachite.

Color with Feng Shui

A properly placed lush plant, inspiring art or a bubbling water fountain, can either add a splash of needed color or tone down the visual impact of a space.  Repot that plant in a different ceramic pot.  Nature is a perfect balance.

Feng Shui is a cross between an art and a science and involves the five important elements of water, wood, fire, earth, and metal.  Using these ancient guiding principles of Feng Shui will create a healthy and happy environment.  Creating a relaxing sanctuary can easily be attained while adding a fountain, plants and different furniture.

By using the tips above, adding Feng Shui ideas, and crystals to your home and environment – you will experience the difference immediately.  These tips are just a sample of all the knowledge in my book The Thriving Code:  A Guide for Healing and Energy Protection”.  Be sure to sign up for free articles, affirmations, and exercises on my website.

The Power of Intention, Intuition and Manifesting

The Power of Intention, Intuition, and Manifesting

Mount Shasta

The power of Intention, intuition, and manifesting when connected and applied together are an amazing trinity.  Intention is a power in its own right.  Declaring we will do something out loud has benefits not readily visible. They are just the same.  Are you in a situation right now wavering, should I do this or not?  Having a vision of what we want, coupled with intention and intuition is key to manifesting our declared outcome.  Recently I had a powerful demonstration of just how amazing we truly are.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                I stated my intention – Now am I listening to my Intuition? 

Do I listen to my intuition, or not?  I had been wanting to visit Mount Shasta this year but one thing or another kept coming up.  Mount Shasta has always been for me a place of healing, connection to nature, getting recharged, and heightened intuition.  Like everyone else, some periods of time are so busy and just getting the day-to-day things done seemed harder than usual.  There is no way I could squeeze in a trip to Mount Shasta, but it kept rolling around in my mind. 

That is until a new friend said at dinner on Tuesday, “Meet me at Mount Shasta on Thursday.”  After turning it down several times, and as I was leaving the next morning, I thought, “I’d be home for twelve hours and then on the road again.”  I was so tired and thought it was just too much.  However, sitting at the airport at Oh-dark hundred, I received this sudden flash of intuition and insight and heard, “Just go!  So I texted her and said, “I’ll meet you there on Thursday.” 

“Opening Doors” with intention and intuition

I wrote, “Opening doors” on the page

“Opening Doors” with intention and intuition, lead me to know in that moment of accepting the invitation to go to Mount Shasta, a new chapter in my life had begun as the doors were opening.  A few days earlier I was reminded of buying my new gold pen, I needed to test it out.  I could not think of a thing to write and the phrase “Opening Doors” jumped onto the page.  At times we do need to see it written, my note is above.

I just had to get to Mount Shasta.  Oh my, those leaps and urgings of intuition! 

Hoops and more hoops before manifesting

Do you ever experience hoops and more hoops before manifesting?  Getting to Mount Shasta was an adventure, starting with my husband saying, “You need to rent a car, as mine isn’t working right now.”  Then    I would be driving through California fires, not knowing what would happen. 

Through all the hoops to get there, it was amazing to arrive at the bed and breakfast.  We went on a house tour and heard the story of how the owner, David, came to own the house.  It culminated in his finding a schooner buried in one of the walls that they had torn down with the name “Dream” painted on it. It was displayed on the top shelf of honor in the house. 

Drinking a cup of coffee and looking up at Mount Shasta, I felt peace, and then excitement.  Little did I know my friend who invited me and the three new friends I made was just what I needed.  We laughed, went to Crystal Lake, meditated on Mount Shasta, hit the crystal shops, walked the Peace Garden, gathered water from the headwaters of the Sacramento River, and spent time eating and sharing. 

Manifesting feels good

Manifesting feels good.  I had been struggling with some clarity and getting the next steps in alignment.  My intention for getting things done the last few months had been lagging and now seems like a distant dream. 

A transformation was and had taken place.  Each day was filled, with laughter, adventure, and a new aliveness. After coming back, those old blocks were shaking and dissolving as I experienced an aliveness-quake, insight, and clarity of purpose. 

“Poof!” – I’m your intuition talking

Often your intuition will show up like a poof and a flash as you see the situation clearly.  It defies logic, yet it just feels right – trust it,  embrace, and dance with your intuition.  In the beginning, it is a soft whisper and grows stronger and louder with practice.  Relax and have fun with it.  Below is a way to know your intuition is talking. 

Intuition Technique:                                                                                                                                                                                         

  1. Take several deep breaths.
  2. Take several more deep breaths to a count of 3, breathe in 3, hold 3, and exhale to a count of 3. 
  3.  Now ask yourself this question, “Should I take the road to the left?”  Wait a moment. 
  4.  Is there any sensation at all?  If no, that is not the road to take.
  5.  Do you want to lean forward and feel a release?  That is the road to take. 

Enjoy your coach and Guide.

Gemstones Recognize a Positive Mindset

Gemstones Recognize a Positive Mindset

Say What?  Gemstones can recognize a positive mindset?  Let’s say that you enhance them and they enhance your energy field.  The more energy you have, it helps you and your state of mind.  Think for a moment, when you feel refreshed and energized, what you accomplished that day.

We are fascinated by gemstones color, design, shape, and some indefinable qualities.  They make us feel good, happy, and we love to wear them.  Science has shown that stones absorb color and have their own vibration rate, like everything on the planet.  Crystals are known to hold data, as well as energy. Use their power to help you.

Cultural  Beliefs and the Wisdom of the Ancients

Ancient civilizations have used stones to remove mental, physical, or spiritual blocks to health, money, or healing.  Cultures from around the world have used the power of gemstones to protect children, homes, pets, longevity, improve reputation, and prosperity.

We are just now catching up to the wisdom of the ancients from the texts of Vedic, Greek, Chinese, Mayan, and Egyptians, concerning the amazing properties of stones.  Jade has long been associated with prosperity, good fortune, and a long life in China, Aztec and Indian cultures.

Throughout history, gems have been fought over, used for protection, used to bind countries to treaties and bind us in marriage vows.  In the Bible, gemstones were used in the historical breastplate of truth.
