Two Money Blocks in Your Home and How to Fix Them

Two Money Blocks in Your Home and How to Fix Them

I don’t talk much about the fact that I used to have a professional Feng Shui consulting business, but I did.

Helping people arrange their space to support fulfilling their dreams is something I adore doing. I stopped offering consultations to the public because I didn’t love the business model of trading hours for dollars. So for the past several years I’ve just consulted here and there for family and friends for fun.

Recently, though, I realized that I’ve been sitting on all of this Feng Shui knowledge and it’s time to share it because it can really help people.

There are two specific things that a lot of people have going on in their homes and offices that, from a Feng Shui perspective, are energetic blocks to money.

Since I can’t come to your house to check out your space (as much as I’d like to), I shot a video so you can learn what the two most common Feng Shui money blocks are— and how to fix them, because I can’t imagine just telling you the problems without the solutions!

Warts And All

The other night I had a “spiritual nightcap” with Robert Holden, author of the bestseller Happiness NOW, among others. Beyond his incredibly charming British accent and unassuming sense of humor, I was struck by something he said:  He’s about SELF-ACCEPTANCE as opposed to SELF-IMPROVEMENT. As those words came out of his mouth I could feel…Continue Reading


The Value of the Vacuum

It turns out that most of our life circumstances are a choice. We can bitch and moan all we like, but when we’re really honest we’ve made a decision, conscious or unconscious: to stay at that job that sucks our soul to stay with that person who doesn’t bring out our best to stay on…Continue Reading


Setting women and girls free.

I received a beautiful email in January from a woman named Erin Giles on a mission. She asked me to write an essay on freedom to contribute to a book she’s putting together to free women and girls. The book was inspired by a film called Nefarious: Merchant of Souls about the human sex trafficking…Continue Reading


How to know when it’s time to quit.

I remember when I was growing up, the other kids would tell me that they hated going to basketball or lacrosse practice, but their parents had taught them not to be quitters so they just toughed it out. I was always totally mystified by this. I had tried and quit just about every sport available…Continue Reading


Freedom is an Inside Job

The Freedom Tour has taught me several lessons about myself, love and life: But one of the most important lessons of all: freedom is an inside job This summer I had a chance to experience it first hand – in a dressing room. Of all places. I took a branded shopping trip with my friend…Continue Reading


Maybe Baby?

I got an email several months ago from leadership, relationship, and team coach Randi Buckley asking me if I would be willing to share my thoughts on having kids with her for a new coaching program she was cooking up. I immediately LOVED the concept and it made my cells buzz: The MAYBE BABY Program–…Continue Reading


Open this to change the world.

Today I’m writing in about something far more serious than my usual musings on self-actualization and freedom. Or am I? I’m part of a campaign of bloggers writing today about The Girl Effect, defined on the organizations site as “The unique potential of 600 million adolescent girls to end poverty for themselves and the world.”…Continue Reading
