The energy of *rebirth*

Magical Monday to you!
In my photo this week, I share the beauty of a hybrid flower bouquet; I received two bouquets on the same day so I combined them into a massive *love* display. I am passing it on to you! It is important to love ourselves first and to feel appreciation for all the beauty and love around us and flowing to us. Even in the midst of the challenges of Mercury retrograde there seems to be alot of love and compassion flowing. We are at a peak time when rebirth is entirely possible and the energy supports this now. It is a time of hope and renewal if we pause to tap into this energy. I am taking some extra time during this period for transformation and transition by allowing space to meditate, rest, be in nature and contemplate my life goals, dreams, and joy.
Life can throw some unexpected curves at us and I got a big one this last week that was a big surprise and not a happy one. Yet truth and awareness is important and I am grateful for this energy to be a part of my life. The retrograde supports taking the time to review and access experiences and how to move through them gracefully and keep positive energy flowing.
So this week, I invite you to pause and feel love for yourself and give yourself a little time to contemplate your life; your joys and your struggles as well.
Great joy to you!
Love, love, love!

The Energy of the *spice* of life

Magical Monday to you! We are now in Mercury Retrograde and we have the full *pink* moon tomorrow. In fact, many planets are in retrograde this month.
So, life in fact may be a little *spicy* this week with so many energies flowing. Its a great time for releasing the energies of winter and fully embracing spring. This also is a good month for *spring* cleaning your energies and life; accessing what is working well for you, reestablishing or recreating your life in a different ways. Although its not a good time for signing contracts or having surgeries, it is a good time for renegotiation of key facets of your life. And for planting new seeds and new ideas to come to fruition during the summer.
In my photo this week, I share some *spicy* salsas from Casa Escobar in Malibu and a nice local Malibu wine. Spicy foods and peppers are known to increase metabolism and can be quite tasty also.
So this week, I invite you to enjoy the beauty of the pink moon tomorrow night, and have some fun this month during retrograde taking some time to discuss, renegotiate, *tweek* your life to take yourself to the next level, or bring in some new joyous fun.
Great joy to you!
Love, love, love!

The Energy of *being in the flow*

Magical Monday to you!

In my photo this week, I am at the Pantages theatre in Hollywood for *An American in Paris*; a wonderful musical about post war Paris. The dancing was wonderful and it was truly a magical evening. I was also fortunate to eat a wonderful *tapas* meal at Cleo restaurant right around the corner.
Everything seemed to flow together at the last minute to make this magical evening come together. I was able to get great seats on the day of the event and able to have dinner without reservations. It was one of those times when the event seemed to come together effortlessly.
And this brings me to the energy of adventure and allowing your desires to come into existence by going with a positive flow of energy. I began having the desire to create that special experience earlier in the week and remained positive even though the tickets didnt materialize until the last minute. In fact, the tickets werent together but they were close enough that someone was willing to exchange one of our seats so we could sit together. The restaurant experience also happened at the last minute and the timing was just right. There were no seats within 10 minutes after we arrived.
So this week, I invite you to dream some fun into your life and allow a positive flow of energy to come to you and bring you a fun adventure.
Great joy to you!
Love, love, love!

The Energy of *contrast*

Magical Monday to you
and Happy New Moon! In my photo this week, I share the joy of my experience at Chez Jay restaurant; a historic landmark in Santa Monica. It was a big celebrity hangout and it was fun to see so many pictures on the wall of celebrities from a different era enjoying Santa Monica.
And this brings me to the energy of this new moon. To me, this feels like an energy of not only new beginnings but of a sense of urgency to take action to make sure Im moving on the path that is most fullfilling in my life.
It has been a week of contrast; great hope, fun, and excitement.
Also, Ive experienced grief in this last week for others who dreams have been altered by challenging circumstances. It reminds me that every day truly is a gift and to be cherished. Its a time to keep working toward our goals, stay positive in our flow of energy, and truly enjoy and savor the preciousness of life.
And it is important to acknowledge grief and sadness also; taking the time to reflect and take some time out just to feel our sadness.
So this week, I invite you to pursue your dreams of the new moon and enjoy your life in some way every day. And, if you find yourself in a place of sadness or grief to allow yourself to feel that also.
Great joy to you!
Love, love, love!

The Energy of *slow living*

Magical Monday to you!
In my photo this week, I share the *Architects of Change* program hosted by Maria Shriver featuring experts in the *slow living* movement. From food to sexuality, to slower living in general, the focus of the discussion was a movement for change to allow people to embrace a slower, yet healthier way of living.
The energy behind slow living seemed to center on the aspects of meditative practices, taking the time to cook healthy foods and eating meals together, and the energy of connecting in meaningful ways with everyone around you. It also featured the aspect of letting go of material things that no longer serve you and carving out *moments of peace and bliss* for yourself even if you life is still hectic with many responsibilities.
According to Maria, many people are having discussions about a slower pace of life giving them more meaning and joy. As I listened to this lively discussion, it resonated with me to focus on creating those moments of bliss, joy, and healthy living into our day as a process for creating more sustaining, positive energy in our lives.
So this week, I invite you to focus on creating those little moments and pockets of slow living, joy, and fun in your daily life.
Great joy to you!
Love, love, love!

The Energy of Fashion and Fun

Magical Monday to you! In my photos this week, I share the energy from Style Fasion week in LA. It was a magical energy of fashion, music, and art. Fashion has a transformative energy of creativity and beauty to enhance our lives. It was really fun to see all the different fashion styles at the event; everyone dressed to bring out the best in themselves.
In my second photo,
I share an update from the *fruit* peel I had last week. This was my skin after 5 days of having the peel. The peel did rejuvenate my skin and did seem to tighten it up a bit also.
In my final photo,
I share
the energy of fun; having brunch at Las Brisas in Laguna Beach. The first course was a beautiful coconut fruit bowl and Las Brisas champagne. I ate the berries out of the fruit bowl and had alot of fun digging some of the coconut out of the shell. It absolutely kept me entertained! It was a fun, relaxing day complete with some dense morning fog.
The energy of a morning fog seemed to bring an energy of relaxation and fun; moving into a slower energy to take time out to have some fun and savor life. Along with the fun energy of style fashion week, it was a creative and fun energetic week.
So, this week I invite you to savor the fun, relaxing slower energy when it comes to you and take time for creativity and fun in your life.
Great joy to you!
Love, love, love!

Beach Foodie: the energy of *rejuvenation*

Magical Monday to you!
In my photo this week, I share my face moments after a peel on my face today; a rejuvenation of the skin. And, as part of the rejuvenation process, I have a few days to rest to allow my body the time for rejuvenation.
Rest and rejuvenation are strong energies for us and part of living a healthy lifestyle. During this time of rest, I am also eating ultralight, drinking plenty of fluids, taking extra time for meditation, and even extra time for dreaming and setting goals.
Sometimes the quickest way of transformation can be through simply *being* and allowing the transformative process of energy to do its work.
So this week, I invite you to take a few minutes, a few hours, or even a day for rejuvenation with healthy foods, great hydration, and one of the greatest actions of rejuvenation: the act of just being and resting.
Great joy to you!
Love, love, love!
