The energy of “new”

Magical Monday to you! In my photo this week, I share a new product designed to help support your immune system; EZC PAC. Its always fun to try new products designed to keep you healthy. Its fast and convenient, no added sugar or preservatives. A great combination of Echinacea, ZInc, and Vitamin C.
This has been a week of new beginings and flowing with the energy of fall. Exciting new opportunities are in the air and just waiting to bring positive happenings into your life. Its also a time of hope with so many inspiring stories of people helping each other in times of hardship.
So this week I invite you to embrace the exciting new beginnings and energy of fall.
Great joy to you!
Bliss,

The energy of *lemonade*

Magical Monday to you! This week is the beginning of a couple of weeks of transition including the lunar eclipse and full moon
In my photos this week, I share an example of making *lemondade*. I simply could not get this photo to turn around correctly so instead of trying to force a *lemon* situation, I decided to show you both sides of the *lemon* pictures and make lemonade out of the situation.
Sometimes in life that is the best we can do. Challenging situations can sometimes seem overwelming but we can take that negativity and challenge and simply transform it into a refreshing drink of *lemonade*; taking our best steps forward to create something new out and refreshing out of a *lemon* situation.
Its also a good time to do some contemplation with the lunar eclipse and full moon, followed soon by mercury retrograde. This will prepare you for big changes that will come with the solar eclipse later this month.
I am traveling to the big island of Hawaii this week for an intensive spiritual retreat and yoga instructor training course. I feel immensely excited to be visiting the big island during such an important energetic shift.
So this week, I invite you to take all your lemons and make some lemondade, even contemplating what that lemondade will taste like and how refreshing it will be.
Great joy to you!
Love, love, love!

The energy of *rest*

Magical Monday to you! In my photos this week, I share one of my favorite ways for the energy of rest and rejuvenation; being on the beach. These shots were taken after I finished my early morning paddleboarding.
There is a wonderful energy to rejuvenation and rest; allowing your body, mind, and spirit to have fun, take it a little slower, and enjoy the energy of *being*. Summer is always a wonderful time for enjoying some time just *being* easy and allowing life to bring some new magic your way.
On Sunday, I slowed it down by taking a beach *walk* instead of a run and sitting down and watching and listening to the waves.
There is something so amazing to gazing at the ocean or any beautiful part of nature and listening to the sounds.
So this week, I invite you to enjoy the energy of rest and take some time for yourself to have fun and rejuvenate.
Great joy to you!
Love, love, love!

The energy of *time out*

Magical Monday to you! In my photos this week, I share the energy of *new wave*; my phrase for embracing and trying something new. In the first photo, a budding saxaphonist made an impromptu performance at a concert I was attending. He was so joyful and his energy captivated the audience including the jazz guitarist who welcomed him into his concert. This was such a great example of joyfully trying something new regardless of the outcome and enjoying the experience.
In my second photo, I had the experience of a new restaurant in the midst of the June *gloom and chill* in LA. So many times we can have some of our best experiences embracing something new and different even in the midst of an energetic *gloom and chill* in our lives. The *Bottle Inn* had a great heart of palm salad and I had a wonderful table in the front just right for viewing the ocean before sunset. The entire adventure was unplanned after an ordinary shopping trip. I opted for a little adventure and decided to drive south through Manhattan Beach and Hermosa Beach for a change of scenery. And the beauty of the unexpected brought a delightful refreshing energy to me just by having a change in pace and taking a *time out* for a little new fun.
So this week, I invite you to experience something new and take a *time out* from the ordinary and embrace the extraordinary all around us.
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 *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!
