Now, I really know it’s Spring (lovely husband) Bob, brought home some Lily of the Valley yesterday--they smell SO GOOD! Sometimes it really is the little things that have the most meaning :)
We are in the midst of SEVERAL BIG Feng Shui projects (SO FUN!)--can’t wait to share with you when they’re completed!!!
And, since we’re on the subject of kick-ass projects--I wanted to wrap up our 3-part series and share the rest of Laura’s beautiful St. Louis home with you today...
The last rooms to show you are the Guest Room and the Master Bathroom.

Laura says “I can’t believe I live here!” and with the energy in her place vibing SO HIGH--we can’t wait to see how her life blossoms as well.
Now her home is a beautiful sanctuary to rest and relax and call in all of the goodness that is already hers--I’ll keep you posted!
If you are feeling the urge for “more” for yourself, too, reply to this email and we will get back to you right away--we would love to support your transformation, too!
Lots of Love,
I’ve been in Colorado this week working, relaxing, and enjoying some time with my daughter, Morgan and her hubby, who live in Boulder.
I went over to Steamboat Springs for a couple of days to visit my friend, Monica--Steamboat is beeeeeautiful!
Also, I had a wonderful opportunity to give a talk in Boulder (Thanks for setting it up, Jocelyn!)--So fun!
We all had a lovely evening together cozying up to the idea that Feng Shui can have a HUGE impact on our lives--whether releasing clutter, or creating a beautiful high-energy space through Feng Shui Design, So Much Can Happen through harnessing the energy of your space.
So, WELCOME(!) everyone!!!!! We are so happy you have joined our e-Family! I will be back in Colorado later this summer--hope to see some of you again very soon!
The mountains are SO healing, I’ve been hiking almost every day, catching up to the altitude and enjoying the beautiful weather.
As I’ve been marinating in the fresh mountain air, I have had a few ideas pop in on how to keep moving toward “healthier” when I return to Madison (‘cuz, I could be a little healthier, how about you?)
Do you ever come back from a vacation or an inspiring event, with BIG NEW IDEAS--but then very soon fall back into the status quo and abandon your desires to move forward?
Did you ever consider that it could be your home that is holding you back, weighing you down or BLOCKING YOUR FORWARD-MOVING ENERGY?
Your home can ABSOLUTELY keep those good vibes going OR slow your momentum to a screeching halt.
The energy of your home is 100% impacting your life--Feng Shui is working from the outside IN!
It’s about taking a good look at this energy that is in EVERYTHING. Wherever you’re sitting right now, take a look around. There is life, there is something moving…
There is no such thing as an inanimate object.
There is molecular, buzzing chi. There is intangible-to-the-human-eye energy in EVERYTHING. And it’s palpable to those of us who are sensitive to it. Take a look at everything as having a life and also having a voice--WHAAAA???????
Everything in your space is a reflection of your thinking. You selected everything--or agreed to it--allowed it in your house--one way or another.
You can’t really hide in Feng Shui--it’s a very intimate process--your energy and that of your home are completely intertwined. When you understand that everything has LIFE to it (and it has a little VOICE too) everything just comes to life and is chattering away at you!
Every object represents a belief: “I feel good about myself--I’m going to paint this bold color. I don’t feel good about myself, I”m going to pile stuff up in the corner. I feel depressed, I’m going to just let the mess go.... I’m full of energy, I’m going to clear out the basement” Everything’s going to reflect something about you.
So, your home is talking to you 24 hours a day. And if it feels heavy and like it’s weighing you down--like a backpack of rocks--then moving forward, especially moving forward with your health, is going to be tough!
BUT...turn your home into something that’s totally and completely forward moving--and everything speaks to who you’re wanting to be. So NOW everything is talking to you about how fabulous you are, deserving of XYZ, how confident and smart and perfect and healthy you are--that whatever is special and whole about you is TRUE!
Your home can talk to you so powerfully and TOTALLY propel you forward.
It’s like downloading a new program to your computer or updating your OS. It can CHANGE THE STRUCTURE OF YOUR BRAIN. And you start to notice, “I feel better! I have more confidence, I have FUN bubbling up inside--I’m Happier, Healthier!”
And, in terms of your HEALTH and WELLNESS...next week we will shine the light on specific things you can do to boost the Health Chi in your space.
Lots of Love,
Do you have a friend who would love to read this today? (Forward to a friend link)
PS: I’ll be at the Dreambank, Madison, WI, on May 23rd at noon talking about Feng Shui for Health and Wellness--bring a friend and join us!
We had so many comments from last week’s post--it was fun to hear from all of you--thanks so much for taking the time to reply!
Today we continue the tour of Laura’s charming St. Louis home today with the Living Room…
As you recall, Laura moved to her new home this fall when her last little one (I mean really big, grown-up one) went off to college.
Her home was a blank slate (well, with a little clutter tossed in)--and she was very open to allowing a BIG JUMP in energy for her home and her life--very BRAVE!
Here are a few before pictures (previous owners) of her living room:
And so the Feng Shui challenge began…
...To lift the CHI of this space to match Laura’s gorgeous, glittering energy and beautiful life unfolding and blossoming right before her…
Big news this week! We had a photo shoot of a completed Feng Shui Design project in St. Louis...
Here is Mark Schepker, super-photographer, in action…
Today, I wanted to share just the Master Bedroom transformation…
This is the before shot of her room:
She sent this pic to me as she was looking at the house…
“My bedroom??? What do you think?”
“Well...here are the challenges:
Later we discussed...
This basement bedroom (unless it’s really, really, really WOW!) will never call you down, you will have to make an appointment--to go down the steps, to the cement floor, make a hairpin turn at the bottom of the steps and go down a long narrow hall to get there--all of that requires effort. And it’s effort that we are usually NOT WILLING to make...the only exception is if we pull out all the stops and GO FOR IT!!!!!
And, she did...
