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!

The magic of the *runway*

Magical Monday to you!
In my photo this week, I share the evening gown I modeled for my first runway fashion show experience. It was a fun project for the new moon cycle and solar eclipse energy. The show had several models, both male and female which was quite fun. The theme was evening wear and the routine was alot of fun.
This is a great time to try explore some new activities with the new energy from the solar eclipse. I found it to be very energizing to meet and work with new people and model a great dress.
In the last week of August with the warm weather, its a great time to enjoy the last part of the summer as we move into labor day. I broke a fin on my paddleboard. The fin couldnt be replaced but a larger fin was added so my board will probably be more stable than before. Im excited to give it a try.
So this week, I invite you to enjoy and embrace the final week of summer and embrace new activities which bring you new people, new experiences, and fun energy into your life.
Great joy to you!
Bliss always, Cfayla

The energy of the “solar eclipse”

Magical Monday! Happy solar eclipse! We are in the mist of Mercury retrograde and all my devices are having issues so you get to see me sideways in one of the photos😊 in my photos this week, I share the solar eclipse from Griffin Park in LA. I purchased the special viewing glasses and took a photo of the eclipse. I was there around 10:30 am. The sun looked an amazing orange and the moon was incredibly dark. It was an amazing energy just watching the eclipse. We are in a new moon zone also so time to put your dreams out there to become your new reality.
I’m just back from Kona Hawaii early this morning from yoga teacher training and am now a yoga instructor also. It was challenging, fun, and vastly healing and empowering on every level. You can check out photos and footage from the drone on my instagram or facebook.
So, this day i invite you to express your dreams, write them down, and create your best reality yet.
Great joy to you!
Bliss always,

the energy of *oils*

Magical Monday to you! In my photo this week I share two of my favorite *oils*; Frankincense and Oregano.
Frankincense is great for relieving long term stress and anxiety, reducing pain and inflammation, and boosting immunity. I use it before and after my hot yoga practice to help my flexibility and to enhance the benefits of peace and calm from the yoga practice.
Oregano is well known as a natural alternative to antibiotics. I have always loved the smell of oregano and it also reduces inflammation and boost immunity. I like to use it for minor skin irritation also. It was used in ancient Greece to heal wounds.
So this week I invite you to try frankincense or oregano to enhance the energy of peace and calmness in your life and give a little boost to your immunity.
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 *fireworks*

Magical Monday to you and Happy 4th of July! In my photos this week I share two of my favorite summer holiday foods: chocolate covered strawberries in fourth of July colors and an egg white omlette with spinach.
I have always loved the energy of fireworks; the beauty and creativity of seeing the color combinations have always given me such positive energy and a feeling of celebration for life and for the fun of the summer. And also, the energy of happy times with family and friends; creating magical memories.
Last night there was a wonderful fireworks display at Santa Monica pier that was really fun and exciting.
So, this week I invite you to enjoy the energy of celebration this week for the fourth of July and summer time fun.
Great joy to you!
Love, love, love!

The energy of *challenge*

Magical Monday to you!
In my photos this week, I share the energy of *challenge*. In the first photo, I feature a beautiful Greek Salad from the Malibu pier minus the feta cheese. Its a beautiful salad but it was quite a challenge deciding on an item on the menu I wanted. It seemed like everything menu item had something I couldnt or didnt want to eat, so I finally decided to go with the challenge, order the closest item, and not eat the cheese.
Earlier in the day, I had the challenge of wrenching my hip as the wind blew my paddleboard into my hip and wrenching it. In my second photo, you can still see me smiling even after this happened.
I went paddleboarding anyway and did some yoga last night to help stretch out my hip. I could barely walk but somehow after stretching out my body with some yoga, I woke up in fairly good shape this morning. Meaning, I could actually walk, just had to get up slowly and carefully.
Sometimes in life we have those times and days when we get challenging energy and it could be so easy to give up or become negative. Instead, I just accepted what was happening, did my best to work with the challenge, and today the energy lifted and I feel wonderful in spite of a sore hip. I feel a wonderful flow of positive energy even though I had to modify my yoga practice because of my hip.
So this week, I invite you to flow with the challenges in life; do your best anyway, and hopefully keep smiling. The energy will shift in a more positive way by accepting what is happening and moving through it.
Great joy to you!
Love, love, love!

The energy of *sunrise*

Magical Monday to you! In my photo this week, I share the beauty and peace of a sunrise on the Malibu pier on Saturday morning right before a sunrise paddleboard. It was absolutely breathtaking, magical, and mystical. I felt I was in a place of perfect beauty and peace. Early morning can bring us this sense of timelessness and beauty. It can be very refreshing for the soul.
I had a wonderful paddleboard experience and then a wonderful run on the beach later. Just these simple things gave me immense happiness because they are two of my favorite things to do.
This week we have the summer solstice and the new moon. This is a week to enjoy the beauty of summer and take out some time for fun and joy and to connect with your sense of freedom and the beauty within you.
So this week, I invite you to enjoy your summer and bask in the beauty that surrounds you and take some time to love yourself.
Great joy to you!
Love, love, love!

The energy of the *block party*


Magical Monday to you! In my photos this week, I share a *green * carpet moment at a networking block party I attended on Sunday as well as a photo booth shot.
Summer is a great time for block parties; a way to reconnect in a fun and positive energetic way and also to celebrate the fun of the summer season. This event was complete with popcorn, a photo booth, pinball machines, comedy skits and some great connections.
To me, a block party is a celebration of the fun and good times energy we share with others throughout the year. Its great to take some time out to have fun with those people; reconnect with positive energy, and perhaps meet some new positive fun loving people to create great flows of energy for the future.
In addition, I love photo booths so I had some fun in creating a photo of myself from the *photo booth* shots. It was fun to take some time for creativity and fun.
So this week, I invite you to enjoy the social season of the summer; block parties, beach parties, etc and the reconnection and new connections of positive energy these events can create.
And, possibly take a little time for a creative, fun project of your own.
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!
