Time to Make Some Spring Changes!

Life is awakening all around us with spring in the air. This is a time for new beginnings inside and out. I love to begin by rearranging my rooms and freshening up the environment with a good cleaning and space clearing. It feels great to open the windows and recharge my surroundings with a shot of Mother Nature. Here are a few things I suggest to freshen up the energy in your environment:

  • Wash drapery and hang lighter linens to treat the windows
  • Sweep away the dust and other stagnancy by cleaning your floors
  • Wash all bedding
  • Rearrange your rooms so they take on a new fresh look
  • Touch up wall paint
  • Take your indoor plants outside and give them a good washing
  • Burn incense and spray essential oils


What we do on the outside of our environment is just as important as the inside. Here are a few simple tips:

  • Take out the broom and sweep away leaves that found their way into the corners of your deck, patio or yard.
  • Trim your hedges, bushes and trees of any dead branches
  • Place fresh soil in your planters
  • Wash off the outdoor furnishings
  • Hang a flag, birdfeeder or chime
  • Plant fresh blooms or herbs
There are so many things you can do to uplift the energy in your surroundings this spring and kick your internal energy up a notch. The above are just a few things you can think about doing.

Good lighting is essential if a home is to have the flexibility demanded by contemporary living. Adequate illumination makes a home safe and easy to use, satisfying to work in, and invigorating. By contrast, it can also help a space to be relaxing or even romantic after a long day at work.

We all need to reduce our carbon footprints by lowering the energy usage. Lighting is a specific area where we can cutback especially since it constitutes 15% of the energy we consume in our homes. The easiest way to do this is to maximize the use of natural light in every area of our home. We can do this by allowing as much natural light as possible in being cognizant of not overheating. Reflective surfaces to bounce light as well as color choices are very effective ways to throw light back into your environment. Once the sun goes down, artificial lighting takes over. Low-energy lighting is the way to go to reduce your energy usage. Here is the short-list of options:

  • Compact Fluorescent bulbs
  • Light Emitting Diodes
  • Halogens
  • Candles
Have some fun with your lighting options and create an environment that is irresistible!

Daily Astrology - Resolute Expression

Olympic National Park - Oregon

Metal is the solo element today as the stem combines to the metal rooster branch. Resolute in expression and guided by strong feelings to meet your objectives with intensity is a natural for this combination. However, it will be difficult to let go when situations become difficult. Don't fixate! It is more productive to be flexible and heed the advice of others.

Stand in your Greatness!

Stand in your greatness

Can you own your greatness? Your greatness is the accumulation of all aspects of your personality: your strengths, your weaknesses, skills, and challenges mixed together to form a unique being that is you. Tadasana or mountain pose, moves you to awareness of your greatness. The chest opens proudly as you feel your body reach from  the ground into the air. If you find that you chronically self-criticize or denigrate your accomplishments, you are denying your greatness. Step into this yoga pose inspired by the majesty of the mountain and recognize the greatness within you.
