AURA GLOW: HOUSE OF INTUITION – LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA

Hey there! Whether you’re new or returning – glad you stopped by!

As you know, I’m new to Los Angeles so I’m on the hunt for special gems of places around the city. I think maybe I’ll call this series ‘Aura Glow’ I’ll find new places, products, experiences, etc. and try it out. I’ll tell you where it lands on my Glowdar (I just made that up lol) Sound good? – GREAT! Ratings will be:

✷✷✷✷ = WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?! WHY HAVEN’T YOU CHECKED THIS OUT YET!

✷✷✷ = WORTH TRYING FOR YOURSELF

✷✷ = EHH, OKAY TO PASS

✷ = DON’T BOTHER WASTING YOUR TIME

YOUR INTUITION LED YOU HERE

My roommate introduced me to this place called HOUSE OF INTUITION. Honestly, since discovering I love the energy it brings! I get all my healing items from here – candles, sage, incense are my go-to’s.

The Sage (Smudge Bundle) is a great size and price ($4), and lasts such a long time. I use this to cleanse and purify my personal space. I can use it multiple times before I need to purchase another one – Bye, Bye Bad Energy!

The Incense is great too, my favorite is the Lavender and I use this for relaxation and tranquility. I like to light before I go to bed, so I can go to sleep with a relaxed and clear mind. They sell 20 sticks in a pack for $4.

The Candles are my favorite. They have Zodiac Candles ($18), I like to light this once a year on my birthday to bring good vibes for my next trip around the sun. They also have Magic Candles ($16). You can select the type of candle (healing, money, love, creativity etc.) you set your mind to what you would like to bring, and then light it! You’re not supposed to blow out the flame, but let the flame go out on its own. The candles also have some small crystals infused that you can keep once burned. They have so many to choose from. I love being able to bring any additional positive energy or thoughts my way!

ENERGY: PROTECT, RECHARGE, MANIFEST.

ENERGY: PROTECT, RECHARGE, MANIFEST.

Hello! If you’re returning or new – Thank you for being here!

One of the biggest life lessons I have learned has been about energy – protecting it, recharging it, and how I manifest it.  I have seen such a drastic positive change in my life when I live by these principals. I’m an (August) Virgo (which is an earth sign) so I very much feel connected spiritually and physical with my surroundings to keep me grounded.

PROTECT.

We are energy. We all radiate energy. Our energy force around us is called our Aura. Our Aura is the mirror to our soul that exudes our energy to the world of our true self. And as easily as we can exude our energy to others, it’s important to remember it’s a 2 way street that comes full circle. Positive or Negative energy (from people, places, attitudes, emotions etc.) can penetrate the Aura, making it important to protect, mentally, physically, and spiritually.

For myself, I found that in my life, I was sharing my space with people and relationships that negatively impacted my energy. It’s not to say that these people are bad people, because they are good people. It was that just for me and my life, their energy was not the energy I feed off to nourish my soul and prosper. I think it’s hard when you care about someone (not just romantically, but also your friendships, family, co workers, etc.) to distance yourself when you feel you are no longer feeling positive in their presence. What isn’t growing is dead. And we often look at things for how we want them to be rather than for what they really are. We make excuses, we try to rationalize, we do everything but see exactly what is in front of us. Allowing someone into your space is a privilege and should be treated as such. Not everyone deserves your time and energy.

Only invest in what brings joy to you daily. I used to work for Apple, so this Steve Jobs quote has always stuck with me – he said “If today were my last day, would I do what I’m doing…If the answer was ‘No’ too many days in a row, I’d make a change” So in any situation ask yourself “Am I happy? Do I love where I am? Does this make me feel good?” If the answer is No too many times in a row, make a change. To protect your energy, you have to learn to trust it. It’s never wrong.

RECHARGE.

As important as it is to protect your energy, it’s equally important to recharge. We all need to take a moment to pause, close our eyes, take a deep breathe, connect with the universe and inhale the positive energy we want to flow through our body and exhale the negative. Visualize your vibrations being revived. I also like to light sage to cleanse my personal space. I sage all the rooms in my apartment and light a candle. Some signs I look out for that indicate to me I need to recharge my energy are:

  • Excessive Fatigue
  • Feeling Unmotivated
  • Irritable – very short with people, often feeling annoyed for an unknown reason
  • Unable To focus – feeling foggy
  • Anxious

 If you start feeling this way, take a mental day (or a few). Spend time with yourself and understand what you need. Alone time is often looked upon negatively by others. People are afraid or don’t want to be alone. But if you can’t spend the day alone with yourself, why would anyone else want to? Recharging and self care starts with you. If you’re not at your best you can’t be the best for the people around you. I go to the movies, or out to eat by myself and I love the time I get to discover something new about me.

MANIFEST.

The most important and sometimes hardest to change of them all. I genuinely and whole-heartedly believe, what you put out into this world, is what you receive back. When you train your brain to be positive, it naturally flows to everything else in your life. In every situation, although it may not be apparent at the moment, there is a positive in every “negative” Believing that everything does happen for a reason – you are exactly where you are supposed to be and what is meant to be, will be, was such a game changer in my life. It’s helped ease my anxiety and depression, my overall energy and outlook on life.

A couple months back, I was rushing to get to work. I remember feeling that everything that morning was just off and not going how my day should have gone. I finally make it out the door with a couple minutes to spare that I wouldn’t be late and I turn my car on and it starts flashing that my tire is FLAT! I first thought – WOW. REALLY?! And wanted to get upset. But then I took a breath and just thought – I’m being protected. I was not meant to be on the road at this time. I will get to work when I get there, and that’s that. I let it go, called to have someone put air in my tire. And just went about my day as usual and actually ended up having a nice day at work. I forgot all about what happened that morning.

That’s a small example but I constantly do this to train my brain that in any situation that may not have had what I felt was the favorable outcome I wanted at the time, that there is a positive side. In the end everything works out, what I wanted or what I thought I wanted turned out to not be what I needed.

When I first started doing this, some of my friends thought I was insane lol They would ask me “why aren’t you angry?” In situations that would make most upset, and my response is always “what will being angry do? It won’t resolve the current situation, I often feel anger is a wasted emotion. It’s okay to recognize that something is happening that you are not okay with, but I often feel situations turn out better when you don’t act on anger and just let it pass. I can’t think of any situation that was resolved with anger.

I hope you too can look ‘Into (your) Aura’ I’m here to help inspire a more thoughtful and conscious way of living. Helping you to find things that feed the soul and bring joy.

THE GRASS ISN’T ALWAYS GREENER..

THE GRASS ISN’T ALWAYS GREENER..

So, you’re either back again or new, either way – AWESOME and WELCOME! 

Social Media has a great way of masking reality. Only showing the highlights of life, and leaving those (like myself) to figure out where we belong if we don’t have the same highlight reel. I’m not envious of the posts with people getting engaged and having babies, all that good stuff. At this point in time, that’s not for me. I’m very career and “do what you love” driven so I’m envious of the people who I see traveling the world, people who own their own business’s, make their own schedules, fighting for what they believe in, changing the world and making it a better place. And those who seem to be able to wake up at 11am everyday! umm, #GOALS

I’ve been home for 2 days since just being discharged from a 7 day hospital stay. 2019 did not start out how I wanted (I’m okay and starting to feel better). But, being in the hospital made me have such an epiphany about life. Without sounding dramatic, while I was there I really could only think that I haven’t done anything I’ve really wanted with my life. And I feel so silly saying that because on paper my life looks great, great job, great money, and amazing friends (trust me, it’s taken A LOT to get to this point) but for the most part the work I do isn’t fulfilling to me. Luckily I have great coworkers (people I now consider friends) who make the work day better to get through. But, I still often feel as though I go above and beyond for a company to make millions of dollars, off my work ethic, blood, sweat and tears where at the end of the day, they see me as easily replaceable. They would just move on, business as usual if needed.

” I want to wake up every morning feeling like the fire in my soul has been ignited. “

I want to wake up every morning feeling like the fire in my soul has been ignited. Like I am genuinely making a difference in people’s lives, the planet and doing it my own way. Breaking boundaries and causing positive disruption going outside the box standards society sets.

That is why I am starting my first entrepreneurial venture. My passion is skin care, so I’m excited in a couple of months I will be launching my own Skincare Company. (I’ll def write a post all about it, and keep you updated on progress) My only regret is that I did not document the full journey from the beginning years ago. But I’m doing it now – HELLO BLOG!

I promise this year I will stop putting things off until “tomorrow”. TOMORROW IS FINALLY HERE! You never know who is wishing for your struggle. The grass (being an analogy for life) isn’t always greener. But, I  realize my grass is green and more importantly – it’s mine. I’m more than happy to spend the time nurturing it, for it to continue to grow. Hoping you all do the same!
