Why Our Posture Affects Our Energy Level And Our Emotions

    The last time I ran my annual Chakra Healing Class, one of the most interesting topics came up. On of the participants (thank you Steve!) mentioned that he noticed becoming more short of breath when his posture slumped.

Why Your Fascia Is Your Best Friend + 3 Ways To Support It For A Lifetime

      Did you know your entire body is held together with a fiberous network of collagen called fascia? And did you know that this fascia is all semi-conductive, and gets grounded immediately the minute your body touches the earth? And did you know that this conductive interwoven collagen dense system is basically an alternative delivery system that interconnects your entire body? This is why grounding does not depend on circulation to affect your entire body from head to toe.  It doesn’t depend on digestion, or lymphatic flow, or even nervous system functioning — it is because our connective …

Making Way For The New: Start Off 2023 By Decluttering Your Home

  I can think of no better way to set the stage for a brand new year, 2023, to be full of expression and growth than to simplify and declutter at the start of the year. You need space to expand, it’s as simple as that. Clutter stops growth and expansion, and it affects your health, both mentally and physically. I want you to feel like your living space — whether it is a single room, an entire apartment, or a massive multilevel home — just wraps you up in a big hug of safety and security and joy, with …
