Where is your focus?
My friend Jodi Knittel, a great coach and owner of Tangerine Road, suggested I read "The Passion Test", which is the premise of her work with others. Intrigued by our conversation, I ordered the book and finally started at it. As I'm reading it, I'm saying to myself, "yeah, I know this" and "this is basic stuff" blah, blah, blah. And then it hit me, "if I know this stuff, WHY am I not doing it???" Ding, ding, ding. What good is knowledge if we don't really put it into action? I realized I wanted my life to show up without having to do anything. How very eye opening!
There are three basic points in the book. Intention (what you want) + attention (being mindful & taking action) + no tension (being in the flow) = living the life of your dreams. The beauty of this formula is it's very simple. However, it does require clarity, diligence, mindfulness and taking right action with the right timing.

Outer Feng Shui Tip
One premise of feng shui is what you have in your physical environment is what you get in life. Said another way, your physical surroundings become a representation of your conscious and unconscious self. From this perspective, everything in your space becomes important. All of your physical possessions either enhance or detract from well-being.
Another component of feng shui is about creating spaces that take you where you want to go. In other words, feng shui can assist you to manifest your desires. Let's say you're clear about what you what. Now it's important to physically represent your intentions in your home, your office, and your business. An important aspect in your home is the view you see from the bed. Ideally, you'll put images, use colors, hang art, words, etc. that inspire your day and take positive "messages" into dream time. Your office is another important area. Make it good!
Inner Feng Shui Tip
Are you feeding the monster with your thoughts, words and actions? In other words, are you giving negativity your time and energy? I'm not suggesting being in denial about the real challenges that exist in our lives. I am suggesting that those challenges not take center stage with stress, helplessness, complaining, victimization and such. A friend once shared a sage piece of advice, "toxic thoughts are the equivalent of repeatedly pouring acid on a sapling, eventually it will die." One of the quickest ways toI shift away from toxic thoughts is focus on gratitude and character traits you admire. I call focusing on gratitude as feeding the angel. Try it, you'll like it!
