The Power of Giving Away ~

The Power of Giving Away ~

This weekend I am doing a “deep clean” in our second bedroom/office/art space/Kim’s closet to get ready for my husband’s parents to stay with us.  I won’t scare you with pictures!

Now I’m not a huge pack rat, but I do love keeping things.  As a young girl I LOVED combing through my Mom’s clothes and as I grew it was really exciting to try them on.  So I’ve collected a lot of clothes with the idea that one day a young girl will go CRAZY HAPPY playing dress up with my closet.

But in the meantime – what is all this energy that I am holding onto?

* Future energy:  Some person I haven’t met is going to appreciate my eclectic style?
* Past energy:  Evidence of how cool I was?
* Bargaining energy:  Ooh!  I might need some of these clothes for costumes!
* Money energy: Can I make some money on ebay?

Ok, even as I wrote those out I could think of PLENTY more reasons and social engagements to keep it all.

In order to break up the energy of “holding on” I dug deep yesterday and released a lot of clothes that “defined” me while I was living in San Francisco from ’97 to ’06.

That Kim…she was a whole lot of fun.  And in a way, it was like I got a boost of energy from the Me in my 20’s and early 30’s.  What I felt so strongly was that I have always had a strong sense of belief.  Belief in following our dreams, belief that you can live how you want and don’t need to suffer in a box, and belief that you’ll grow more heart muscles being yourself than worrying about who loves you.

This morning I have so much gratitude for being able to inhale the purity of that San Francisco Me.  I took it in deep into my lungs, deep into my heart and deep into my bones.

The clothes?  Bags are already in the car!  I realized that it was time to free up my NOW.  Not only did I need to release the material parts of my past, but my home needs the open space to support what is being created in the present.

Giving away not only opens up space for us, but releases the energy of what our things mean to us.  As some else picks up my skin-tight pinstripe pants I don’t have any say in how their power erupts.  And I feel the most gratitude for this aspect of the deep clean – I DON’T HAVE TO KNOW THE STORY.  Oooh, that feels good!

Whether you are cleaning or gathering for the Winter ~

Here’s to your Thriving Life!


Seeing Color ~

Cosmic Waterlily by Abstractartangel

People often ask me, “What does each color mean?”

While there are some general definitions of color (Red = “passion”, etc) I always look for the QUALITY of the color within people’s auras and chakras.

For example ~ A yellow vibrating at the quality of a sunflower is completely different than a yellow that is vibrating at the color of snot. Right? To read yellow as “power” would short change the true energetic message.

As you read colors within your own space, slow down and begin to sense tone and quality.Sometimes my clients get discouraged when they sense a flat or dull color within their space. This is opportunity to heal yourself!

Raise the vibration of the flat colors to their jewel tones or the brightest natural version of that color that comes to you.  I really love this mandala image, as it shows such beautiful jewel tones!

Gray ~ shiny Silver
Swampy Greens ~ choose anything from new Green leaves to Emerald
Dark Brown ~ play with moving it to the tone of fresh Brown soil or brightening it to a deep Amber
Bruises ~ Unwind into 3 distinct layers of Ruby, Sapphire and Amethyst

Our vocabulary of color anchors our relationship to our energy bodies.  Enlarge your color vocabulary by noticing more individual colors while you are out on walks.  How does the green on a Eucalyptus tree differ from a Bay Laurel?  Tree bark offers us a lot of tones for healthy Brown tones.  Flowers are a wonderful source for color, as our moods usually brighten at the sight of them!

To your thriving life!

The Full Blue Moon

Full Blue Moon ~

Tonight open your heart to receiving! As the Full Blue Moon appears in our lives it brings the gifts we prayed for before the Full Sturgeon Moon at the beginning of August. Release the threads of disbelief that hover over your heart.

Abundance is yours! Whether you have prayed for more love, sturdier health, or even sweet silence ~ today and tonight you must allow yourself to RECEIVE those wishes.

Use visualizations that feel simple and powerful to you ~


A lake filling up with clear rain water*
A flower opening its petals fully to the sun*
The warmth of a hearth fire reaching out and bringing warmth to every cell within you*
Standing at the sea shore and feeling the gorgeous salty wind enveloping you*

When it comes to imagery, there are no hard and fast rules.  Use what feels right today.  You may find next month, you go into a more detailed picture of the same visuals or something completely new pops into your imagination.
Above all have fun and a beautiful weeekend ~
To your thriving life,
