Integration and a Huge Mess in My Own Kitchen


I talk a lot about the importance of Integration and Grounding as steps in energy clearing. Integration itself is an act of putting energy and things “back where they belong”, or organizing them more efficiently. Kind of a leap in thinking for energy and soul work. But recently it’s a literal, physical lesson I’ve been learning.

My partner moved in with me in February. With that came a lot of learning points, how to work our schedules, how to work around one or both of us being sick, how to function when both of us had surgery within a week of each other (one planned, one emergency), and surprisingly, how to integrate our households. I thought “No big deal. David isn’t bringing any furniture, or large things. I organize other people’s houses *all* the time.”

Well **EFF** was I wrong. For 6 weeks, there was stuff everywhere. It’s been several months and somethings still don’t have a place. Read more

Building a Solution in My Own Kitchen

Even as a Feng Shui Practitioner, there are always ways to improve our homes, and lives for better functionality. We live in a decent sized two-story townhouse. Our kitchen is large, which I love. After our last apartment I refused to ever live with a galley kitchen again.

The thing is… it’s not laid out great. I wish the counter between the living room and kitchen was the same height. I wish there was at least one “wide” cabinet (and by wide, I mean normal width.)

I cook a lot. Like nearly every meal, nearly every day. I work from home so I either cook my lunch or heat up left overs (I do like to strategically batch cook.) I have four pieces of stoneware (think Pampered Chef) and a cast iron dutch oven that won’t fit in our cabinets. I used to store them in the oven, but since I’m constantly using the oven, I was constantly moving all these pieces that aren’t all that light.  Read more

My Mom’s Friend’s Art Gallery and Helping

This week, I’d like to welcome a Featured Guest Blog Author. Riley is my 8 year old, laundry 2015-11-25 14.06.30 HDRand dishwasher assistant, and is wonderful at finding tools, my phone, and other things that are just out of my reach. She is very responsible, and makes sure to feed all her animals and do her homework. She has been learning to write essays at school, and loves to read, write, and type at home as well.

This is an unedited post, and my only comments are in (parathesis) or the picture captions.

Welcome Riley!

My mom once was fixing her bunny tattoo when they somehow brought up that Todd (the guy doing
mom’s tattoo) had an art gallery and so it began. First I will tell you about the chairs, then the gallery/Todd, and last but not least the tables.
