3 Flowers That Can Help Activate Your Subtle Energy For Successful Relationships


“Mother Nature is a healer, and one of her most powerful gifts comes in the form of flowers. Each variety has a different ‘personality’ to promote physical and emotional wellness.” - Flower Therapy, Doreen Virtue & Robert Reeves.

Flowers have a beautiful and powerful biofield (aura). Even flowers that have been cut have their biofields almost complete as if they were still on the plant. Research has shown that these biofields respond to our emotions and also energize our energy centers. 

Here are 3 flowers that can help us with various stages of our relationships - not just romantic relationships but relationships with anyone - our friends, our siblings, our parents, and even love relationships 

Rudbeckia (black-eye susan) - helps release strong negative and toxic past relationship blocks from our energy body making way for new ones to blossom

Calla Lily - A powerful soulmate attractor flower. Very helpful to bring that special person into our life 

Carnations - A perfect flower for weddings as it gives power to loyalty, commitment, and long lasting relationships. 

Bring these fresh flowers into you home or office or work desk. Allow their powerful subtle energy to support you energetically.

To activate the benefits of flower therapy spend a few minutes visualizing your desired outcome, then do one of the following: 


Rub your hands for a few seconds then hold them over and around the flowers. You needn’t touch the flower just close enough to connect with its energy

Healing Bath - Think of your desire while holding the flowers in your hand, then gently pluck the petals and let them fall in the bathtub filled with warm water. Soak for at least 15 minutes

Display them in fresh water in a beautiful vase in a prominent place in your home and spend a few minutes each day just taking in their beauty.

Just spending a few moments enjoying the flower’s beauty can activate their therapy effects in you.

1 Simple Practice That Can Harness The Transformative Magic of Fire!

Fire consumes, transforms, and clears. The very act of lighting a candle or lamp can cause a change in your state of awareness. Fire is the absolute purifier and transformer. 

Fire is very powerful in helping you focus your intention. 

I love how Denise Linn suggests we “code” the fire with our intention.

Just prior to lighting a lamp or candle become very clear on why you are lighting it. Focus your attention on your desired results. 

Take 3 deep full breaths, allow the quietness to expand inside you. Allow a “feeling” of the results that you intend to fill you. Now visualize the room filling with this feeling. When the feeling/visualization has reached clear intensity, project your purpose onto the lamp/candle and light it. In this moment the flame acts as a magnifier and projects your thoughts and feelings into the room. 

Simply gaze into the flame and allow your intention to fill the room. 

Do this is for a few days. 

In the coming few days/weeks be open to synchronicities and chance encounters. These are not coincidences, but a means for your intentions to come to fruition. 


Clear Kitchen Clutter to Activate Flow Of Abundance


Today’s kitchen is the most popular place in a home. Not just guests, everything else ends up there too. 

The modern day kitchen is the most cluttered of spaces. Objects are piled on every surface usually out in the open. 

This interferes with our ability to enjoy cooking. It also interferes with our ability to enjoy a meal. We chronically feel rushed. 

We are distracted by the un-kitchen related material surrounding us. 

Reminders of work to be done and other responsibilities vie for our attention and time. We even eat on the go. 

Kitchen clutter creates NEGATIVE DECOR. 

The kitchen symbolizes our prosperity and financial resources. This is where we connect with what sustains us. It is also associated with fire, which is an activating force for abundance. 

  • An ideal kitchen is clean, light and airy, and full of  free flowing prana/chi 

  • There should be plenty of natural sunlight 

  • Bright and cheerful colors are best as they convey a sense of health, happiness, and vitality

  • Fresh herbs, fresh fruit bowls, rope of garlic, dried chill peppers and even dried herbs are all nourishing 

  • The mood you create in the kitchen directly affects the health and vitality of all the occupants

  • The thoughts and feelings you have while preparing a meal will be evident in the meals you consume

  • Take time. Make the kitchen a place you want to spend time in, a place which radiates warmth and vibrant life force 
Take a few minutes and remove as many as possible (preferably ALL) things in your kitchen that have nothing to do with food and food preparation.


8 Steps To Maintaining A Natural Weed Free Lawn Without Herbicides


If you live in a suburban area, you probably have a lawn. If you have used any form of weed killers, weed ' n ' feed, roundup, or any chemicals to get rid of the weeds, its important to know how they affect your children and you. Perhaps you have handed over the responsibility to a lawn care company and aren't even aware of the exact chemicals being used on your lawn. 

The effects range from simple nose bleeds, allergies, neurological effects, to severe brain dis-function, cancers, Alzheimer’s. Children needing eye-glasses, attention disorders, autism spectrum disorders, all link back to pesticide exposure from our lawns. Even very little exposure has very strong effects on kids developing organs. Their bodies and organs absorb way more of these toxic chemicals than adults. Their effects are cumulative and can show up later in life.  

It is possible to get a natural nontoxic low maintenance lawn! It's just a matter of knowing the steps. And the first step is knowing the soil composition. 

The secret is in knowing and maintaining a particular soil composition.

A natural organic weed free lawn strives for balance. If you maintain the natural balance weeds naturally do not grow and grass is strong.

Synthetic fertilizers give plants quick bursts of nutrients that disrupt the delicate balance encouraging weeds and weakening grass

Get your lawn off drugs. The longer a lawn is on synthetic fertilizers, weed control products and insecticides, the weaker the lawn gets and the cost of maintenance increases over time. 

An organic natural lawn gets easier and cheaper to maintain over time as the balanced soil and stronger grass are self sustaining. Here are 8 steps to get started.

1. Aerate every season - discourages many common weeds. Compacted soil is a welcome sign for weeds

2. Overseed - nature abhors a vacuum. When you over seed there is less space for weeds to creep in 

3. Do a soil test. See images for balanced soil composition for natural lawn. Amend the soil appropriately with natural and organic elements. Pay particular attention to secondary and micro nutrients. Almost all the weeds are caused by an imbalance in these - usually too less calcium, low iron and too much phosphorus. This is the best way to get rid of weeds. The correct soil composition naturally deters weeds

4. Mechanically remove weeds or use an all natural non-selective weed remover (these are usually vinegar based. Regular vinegar is not strong enough. You need horticulture strength vinegar to get weeds. This will also get the grass so use with caution)

5. Water deep but infrequently. This makes the grass roots go deeper and get stronger

6. Mow higher allowing grass to get stronger. 

7. Watch out for the calcium in the soil. Make sure its ratio is correct 7 parts calcium to 1 part magnesium

8. Be patient. Organic methods take longer to work as they amend the soil and work at solving the problem at the root unlike synthetic cures that work in 24-48 hours. 

Just a little patience and you will be doing a world of good to your children, your self, and humanity. 
The shift is not going to happen overnight. If you already have a weed free lawn but on herbicides, you can gently begin to take it off drugs and maintain the soil composition so it stays weed free.

6 Simple Ways To Incorporate Sound Therapy Into Your Daily Life

“Sound can change our immune function. After either chanting or listening to certain forms of music, your interluken-1 level, an index of your immune system, goes up between 12.5% and 15%. Not only that, about 20 minutes after listening to this meditative type of music, immunoglobulin levels in your blood are significantly increased. There’s no part of our body not affected. Even our heart rate and blood pressure are lowered with certain forms of music. So, it affects not only our soul and our spirit, but it affects us on literally a cellular and sub-cellular level.”  

“Sound can redress imbalances on every level of physiologic functioning and can play a positive role in treatment of virtually any medical disorder” 

Dr. Mitchell Gaynor, Cancer Specialist, Cornell Medical Center. 

Dr. Gaynor first came across the technique while treating a Tibetan monk in 1991. He then began incorporating singing bowls into his research and practice getting phenomenal results. 

Gongs: When played properly symbolize the beginning or end of a mindfulness experience 

Binaural Beat Tracks: A Binaural beat has two different pure-tone sine waves of low frequency with a subtle difference between each one. The frequency is 1500Hz or less with a difference of up to 40 Hz usually. Binaural beats are effective when using headphones or earbuds. This sound therapy is powerful before bedtime. You can even choose to fall asleep to it. 

Singing Bowls: Offer different frequencies and play different notes. Very helpful for various sound therapies, at-home meditation and yoga practices. Their sound therapy effects are powerful whether you listen to it live or via a recording. Link your breath with the sound and motion of playing a singing bowl for a moving sound meditation. 

Using Singing Bowls

Use singing bowls everyday. Incorporate it into your daily routine. Here are some suggestions: 

  1. Use them as part of your mindfulness & meditation practice

  2. Make them a part of your yoga practice 

  3. Bring them into your classroom to raise everyone's attention

  4. Use it at your events and activities 

  5. If you volunteer or serve in any capacity, bring your singing bowl along. It will help provide stress relief and peace of mind

  6. Take it to an arts and crafts session to help it stimulate creativity

It's really up to you how you choose to share your singing bowl. You are limited only by your imagination. 

Two Main Ways To Play A Singing Bowl 

  1. Striking: Balance the bowl on the palm of your hand. Do not grip it with your fingers. Let the striker gently hit the upper, outer rim of the bowl, and listen to the tone it produces. Feel the vibrations from the bowl as they move up your hand. Experiment with different strikes - from gentle taps to stronger firmer strikes. Listen to the sounds and see how they resonate with you. This itself can produce incredibly calming and relaxing effects. 

  2. Playing The Rim Of Your Bowl: Again, balance the bowl on the palm of your hand. If you grip the edge of the bowl you will dampen the sound or prevent it altogether. Use the striker to create a note. Hold the striker loosely and with a soft wrist run the striker around the rim. The sound will depend on how fast you go and how hard you press. Start slowly and “catch” the note as you run the striker around the rim of the bowl. You can build the note up in volume. Connect with the bowl and don’t worry if the vote falls or stops. Strike again and try once more. Notice how it feels in your body.  


4 Ways To Awaken Natural Forces In Our Homes

“We live in a rhythmic universe. Every part of nature has a unique language and its own rhythm - every flower, bird, and tree has its own rhythmic language; and rhythm is the underlying context that weaves all life together.” - Denise Linn

When we awaken the natural forces within our home, we activate the most powerful forces of nature within ourselves. The more our living spaces look and function like nature, the more likely we are to survive and thrive on earth. 

Bring the rhythm of nature indoors

Simulate natural cadences, cycles, patterns, shapes and forms of nature in your home. This activates dramatic shifts in energies and consequently within our lives

"Energy and geometry are tightly interwoven in the evolution and up-building of life."   - Tom Bender

Here are some ways 

SACRED GEOMETRY - include it in your decor. Sacred geometry is a powerful healing force that reaches inside us and deeply connects us to the harmony and symmetry of life

LABYRINTHS - incorporate it into wall hangings, decorative table tops, and necklace designs. A labyrinth is a sacred geometric pattern that serves as a center point for integrating the forces of earth and the forces of the cosmos. It also powerfully creates a union between inward intention and outward form 

DIVINE PROPORTION - Pythagoras’ golden mean - 1:1.618. This magical ratio is found everywhere in nature and all of life - from the nautilus shell to the proportions of the human body. You can arrange furniture in rooms in accordance with this ratio. It has a tremendous healing effect.

MANDALAS - sacred circles of transformation containing geometric forms. Use in paintings, pictures, on altars, on the floor, make a mandala in a sand tray.

9 Home Energizers That Can Increase The Energy Of Your Home

Energizers are things that can increase the life force energy of your home thereby changing your life experience in a positive way.

  1. PYRAMIDS: Crystal pyramids, or copper ones with mystic symbols like yantras bring an exhilarating energy into your home. The pyramid acts as a vortex to attract cosmic energies 

  2. CUT-LEAD CRYSTALS: These bring rainbow energies and fill spaces with magic and joy and vibrant color 

  3. HAPPY PHOTOS: the photos we have on display are very important. An unhappy photo of a household member can create a very difficult energy in the home. 

  4. SACRED OBJECTS: Things that belonged to Spiritual Masters or belonged to people you admire or love will energize your home. Every object carries the emanations of whoever owned it

  5. HANDMADE OBJECTS: These can bring wonderful life energy into a home esp. if you know the person who created it 

  6. NATURAL OBJECTS: Natural objects are great energizers. The closer an object is to the source of its origin the more energy it has.

  7. GODS & GODDESSES: Pictures and statues of Gods & Goddesses you feel connected to can have an inspiring effect

  8. MYSTIC SYMBOLS: If a particular symbol has a personal significance or you find yourself attracted to it, that’s an important clue from your subconscious. Using that symbol in your home will be powerful. Even though you may not fully comprehend the significance of the symbol go with the way a symbol makes you feel. 

  9. MIRRORS: These can fix unbalanced energy, deflect unwanted energies and even expand spaces
