You can have control or love but you can’t have both….

It’s a funny thing letting go of control. Control is such a strong comfort for so many. Often times due to the traumas & circumstances of our youth beyond our control in most cases . So we grow into adults who inadvertently hurt those closest to us, and find ourselves compelled to have control at all times. So that we may never have to go right back to feeling like that powerless child again. The thing about it is that often times the comfort of always being a creature of habit or in control at all times prevents …damn near blocks the ability to let true love and happiness into our soul.

Granted I get it it’s scary, frustrating even strange….yet at the same time that’s what love is suppose to be. It’s a life altering mind expanding emotion that has no room for cowardly hesitations. Ultimately we will have to choose whether we like it or not… You can have the control/ comfort that is derived from arrogance/ego/fear or you can let love overcome, immerse & transform you into that version of elusive happiness that you always wanted yet could never quite grasp.

The reason you could never grasp it is because you can’t have both.

Eventually you must choose control or the person…there is no other way. Also, to play games and to waste time will require you to loose that person and you will unfortunately have no one to blame for your own self made misery other than yourself

These thoughts have crept in and evolved for me individually with the lunar eclipse and full moon energy earlier in the week. It’s what this energy of the eclipses is all about. If you accept the harsh and tumultuous energy of the eclipse….you will come out for the better in the end…If you resist the energy out of fear…fear of lack of control…out of it being something different, you only do your soul more harm than good and will suffer more in the long run. So relax & go with the flow. Never let love pass you by due to fear or arrogance

Love and Namaste,

The Eyes At Blenheim Palace

One of my favorite stories and places in England is the eyes of Blenheim Palace. The painting commissioned in 1928 by Gladys Deacon, the eccentric American woman who was the 2nd wife to the 9th Duke of Marlborough.

The painting was painted by the official war artist during WW1, Colin Gill.

No one really seems to know the meaning of the painting other than it is said to represent the brown eyes of the Duke and the blue ocean eyes of Gladys. She was said to have climbed a ladder to the artist with a scarf the specific shade of blue that matched her eyes that she wanted for the painting, and if that isn’t a romantic kick you in the side…… I don’t know what is. I find the eyes painting absolutely mesmerizing & hopelessly romantic.

Summer essential oils soaps


Dr Bronners soap is my jam. As it is so many others…it’s a best selling Castile soap that infused with the essential oils.

This little set I carried with me to the beach was pure perfection. I could interchange between the citrus oil one which would instantly lift my sprits & energize my essence. Then after a day on the beach where even with serious sun protection, my skin tends to feel a little crispy & in need of some calming TLC. I could refreshen up with the peppermint oil one for a soothing refresher before we would head out for evening adventures.

The peppermint oil soothes inflamed skin like no other. Its perfect for post sun activities weather you spend the day at the beach or pool even. It’s an invigorating & energizing oil. This oil is also great at relieving muscle pain. It’s known to be very soothing and calming to your skin.

The citrus is amazing as well because it practically smells of the sun. Its a real pep you up oil. This oil is also used as an antidepressant, anti inflammatory & aphrodisiac. Perfect vacation oil.

This soap can be used for just about anything and is equally environmentally friendly. It not only cleanses but is incredibly hydrating. In particular the hemp oil in these soaps has amazing anti aging properties. Namaste!

Home summer designs and Feng Shui

I try to keep things as simple as possible during the summertime. A couple of ferns in the pots and hanging from the porch add such a lush, fresh and simple touch. I also regardless of the time of year stay cognizant of the flow of energy in my surroundings. I am a big advocate of the principles of Feng Shui. The Chinese art and science that was formalized over 3,000 year ago. The practice of creating harmonious surroundings that enhances the balance of yin and yang. Simply put, how you decorate your house can dramatically affect the flow of good or bad energy in your household.

To start off with as I previously stated during the summer I typically always have ferns in my planters. Live leafy plants such as these are considered great energy. The color green alone represents life, fertility, and abundance. The only plants that are discouraged in the practice of Feng shui are spiky plants like cactus or artificial plants.

Entryways

My entryway essentials will always consists of a stylish shoe storage (because I loath people wearing shoes in my house), hooks for coats/bags/hats & whatnots, a charming key bowl, preferably a small mirror as well to check yourself on the way out and mail tray. Also mirrors in Feng shui are incredible powerful as they represent the water element. It is discouraged to have mirrors facing the front door, and having them framed in a color such as gold as I have here encourages wealth, abundance, warmth, and happiness.

Living room

Most of my house as you will note is accented with blues, brown, and wood elements. I tend to favor a decor with a blended mixture of traditional and industrial/farm house feel. I like the metal energies that usher in crisp clear, and dynamic energies into a space. This combined with the blues with has an energy of calming and peaceful qualities.

Fresh flowers are another essential in my house, I just so happened to have been blessed with an abundance of beautiful blue hydrangeas in the garden this year and was able to sprinkle them throughout.

The bar essentials will always consists of Gin & cucumber tonics. This as well added a little elderflower for the hell of it.

Desk

My desk work space again consists of the dynamic and fresh metal energies but I as well have a huge heirloom wood desk which just obviously radiates the wood elements of nurturing, growth, and stability. I as well accented with gold, for gold ushers in the wealthy, abundant energy.

Basement

It is a must to keep your basements tidy and orderly. This space is the foundation of your house and you will want the energy crisp and flowing properly.

The girls rooms

Now in my girls rooms I stick with white furniture. White beckons beginnings and fresh energy plus is a lovely pop against the greys that is usually the foundation in my children room. Grey promotes quiet and calming energy, again absolutely ideal in any children’s room. You can always accent with pinks and other colors as I have done in my ladies room.

I hope this piece leaves you all with a little bit of inspiration when you are considering the overall placement and flow of energies in your living spaces, and always Namaste!

Full Moon in Scorpio May 18th 2019

Ego is a hell of a concept. So many people use ego as their greatest and most misguided shield for their insecurities and wounds. The practice of belittling and dehumanizing others (even sometimes those we love the most) in order for one to feel “in control”, safe, and superior towards others. Its such a funny concept and truly a world with in their own mind that they live it. For why they are busy playing the all mighty power trippers in their own mind…. the way the rest of the world perceives them is nothing short of callous, cruel, and downright sad. If you have to put others down to make yourself feel better about you… how can there be any room for love in your heart? When you have surely chosen ego to rule over your heart instead. We have to make room for love in our hearts.

Thats what’s going on this full moon in scorpio, a real battle royal will you between ego & allowing yourself to be transformed. Transformed into what metaphysical momma? Well friends…. I would say that’s up to you. What are you feeling bubbling inside of you this week? What can you absolutely not shake out of your mind and soul…. What is preventing you from obtaining what makes you happy in your core? This week is important to let go of what is preventing you from meeting your destiny/ your happy in life.

The Scorpio full moon will be opposite Mercury. So overly rational thinking, self centerness, ego, victimization will all be looming and make the time ripe for arguments. Those arguments will be painful with the moon in the constellation Lupus the wolf. Or the victim, the symbolism of sacrifice and offering. The moon sextile Pluto will bring some serious deep seeded issues and painful reminders of childhood trauma and pain, it will be very deeply felt energy & if given the chance will transform you from your very soul.

Mothers Day

Some time its necessary….. Its absolutely essential. Do you make the time for you? Do you even remember who the you is? As a parent espcailly a mother…. We become lost…consumed in the everyday and the sacrifices as mothers we feel duty bound to make. Im not suggesting ton abandon your duties ladies or forget those beautiful souls who depend and love on us. Yet sometimes its important to remember the woman you are. Yesterday, for the first time in like 5 years I took time to finish a second cup of coffee out on my porch, then take a long bubble bath and after that take the time to do my yoga. I pushed myself to forget the guilt. The guilt of being the mom to hand the babies over to the dads. To think and actually enjoy myself first. After all are these not the qualities we wish to instill in our children? I want my girls to remember that being a mother doesn’t mean sacrificing the amazing woman you are & that they matter. They are valid. We must remember to be true to are essence & always set the proper example.

All that I am or hope to be, I owe to my angel mother.
