Sage Smudge

The use of smudge sticks is based in Native American tradition and can help to cleanse and purify your environment. These smudge sticks are made from natural botanicals and are mostly used for cleansing spaces such as homes.  In addition to their metaphysical cleansing properties, these natural botanicals also have an amazing, calming aroma and are perfect for use in soap-making, crafts, scented sleep pillows and more. Our sweetgrass braids are used in conjunction with smudge sticks in purification rituals, especially to welcome in positive energies after a cleansing ceremony has been performed.Sage

Attract Prosperity Into Your Life

Prosperity CoinManifesting and attraction are quite the popular topics these days thanks to several popular mainstream books and movies. The principles of attraction however are ancient and have been taught by mystics and masters for centuries. The foundation of many spiritual practices have this philosophy at their core. They teach us to focus on blessings, being humble, hardworking and grateful.

Attracting prosperity is about more than focusing on money or things – it’s about developing a state of mind that draws opportunities. One of the best ways to create abundance is to focus on the blessings you already have. Gratitude that is sincere and deeply felt raises our energetic vibration, opening the mind and heart to infinite possibilities.

It’s not only important to focus on gratitude, but to consciously shift our thought patterns in a positive manner. In life, everyone faces challenges and heartaches. Those who accept this and look actively for what they can glean from life’s more difficult experiences find themselves richly rewarded. Where our thoughts go, so does our energy and what we direct our energy towards is ultimately what we draw into our lives.

If you choose to focus on limitations, lack or feeling deprived or victimized, those are the energies that will continue to show up. Instead, focus on growth, learning experiences and turning your thoughts towards solutions, more than the problems themselves. Instead of focusing on “want” spend your time doing. When we focus on what we want or need, it creates an energy of not having. Those who are successful know that what they want is guaranteed, they simply need move themselves towards it.

Prosperity follows those who develop positive habits. Agatha Christie, one of the best selling authors of all time, faced 5 straight years of rejections. Can you imagine? That thought is enough to make most of us throw in the towel and second guess our choices, but she was persistent and as a result sales of her books have exceeded two billion dollars! Persistence and an intense faith in oneself are required for prosperity. You must know at the core of your soul this is my purpose and it will find its way to me so long as my cooperation is continued.

Prosperity often comes after adversities and many hours of trial and error. Fixating on road blocks and failures are what cause most to give up, but those who feel that deep compulsion and longing in their soul find that they simply refuse to give up and that determination brings success and prosperity. That unwavering faith brings multiple blessings along the path.

Prosperity is not difficult to attract, but like anything worth doing it requires effort and concentration. There is no “quick fix” to the process. You can visualize all day long, but unless you’re working at developing the higher levels of consciousness, mindsets and effort to manifest – nothing will happen.

Instead, get clear on a goal. What is it that you truly want to achieve, not merely because you think you should, but because deep down it is who you are? Once you have answered this question, then focus on developing a series of steps to move in that direction and make them a part of your daily routine, so that your process of attracting prosperity becomes a habit. When you hit roadblocks (and you will no path to success is ever straight), ask yourself what you can learn and carry forward from that experience. Finally, keep doing it and don’t give up.

Prosperity can be attained by anyone who is dedicated and hardworking enough.

Feng Shui in the Office

office_feng_shui_tipsMany people are aware of the benefits of Feng Shui in the home. Feng Shui principles can help facilitate peaceful, harmonious energies, making the home more inviting and energizing. There are techniques for increasing prosperity, clearing negativity, and even improving relationships among family members.

Fortunately, Feng Shui can also provide many of the same benefits to the office environment, creating a relaxing and enjoyable atmosphere for work that facilitates productivity and attracts more prosperity and abundance.  We spend a great deal of time working; so it’s important to focus on making the workspace as functional and peaceful as possible.

Simple Tips to Feng Shui Your Office

The most important elements of Feng Shui in the office are proper lighting and air circulation. If natural light is unavailable, invest in full spectrum lighting which most closely emulates natural sunlight.   Air filters and the use of plants can help promote clean, healthy air and prevent the stagnation of energy.  Some good plants to use for the office are ficus, ferns, English ivy, bamboo, and palm plants.  All of them add beauty and remove various toxins from the air.

 Salt lamps are another great addition to the office.  They not only help remove pollutants from the air; they also neutralize excessive ions given off by computers and other office equipment.  Salt lamps look beautiful and create a soothing, serene glow when lit.  They are inexpensive and multipurpose.

Place your desk in a commanding position with good backing.  In most instances, this is the farthest corner from the door, facing it, but not directly across from it.  You should have a solid wall at your back and face the door for the best power positioning.

Clutter should be eliminated to facilitate the flow of chi.  This includes hiding things like computer and equipment cords.  File all paperwork away neatly and don’t allow things to pile up on the desk.

Make your workspace more vibrant with a strong punch of color to increase your productivity and personal energy.  This is particularly important in offices with little to no color or natural light.  You can paint one wall of your office a deep, vibrant color, or add a couple of pieces of wall art that will liven up the space.  Tapestries, posters, or even photographs that are enlarged and framed are all great ideas.

Your office décor should have a good balance of yin and yang (masculine and feminine) elements.  Include a good blend of soft and hard surfaces and light and dark colors.

If possible, place your computer in the North or West part of your office.  This is said to elevate creativity. Place it in the Southwest to generate more income if you have a home office.

A water feature like a table top fountain or small aquarium in the North area of your office is said to enhance career success and draw more business. A safe constructed of metal in the West promotes prosperity and financial security of the business.

There are stones and crystals that can be used to help attract wealth and prosperity.  Citrine, jade, pyrite, tiger’s eye and quartz are all great choices.  Use these stones in your décor to help energize your office space.
