How to Create a Thriving Environment by Katherine Allen

Every summer I take my houseplants outside for a change of scenery.  They grow quite well indoors during the winter months, but something magical happens to them outdoors in the right environment of fresh air, warm temperatures and daily sunlight.  Their growth accelerates as vibrant, green leaves emerge and flowers multiply. Under the right conditions, these plants come alive in a way I don’t see them doing inside the house during the rest of the year.  It reminds me that each of us is like my plants.

Find and Activate the Heart of your Home by Katherine Allen

Your home has a heart too! It is not measured in any scientific facts, but through real experiences by those who live and visit it.  Just like your own personal heart, your home’s heart is that palpable feeling and vibe that animates and brings love to the space you call home. Carole Hyder, an Integrative Space Specialist with roots in Feng Shui, states that the heart of a home operates like our own heart; it is responsible for keeping everything alive and full of vitality.   The biggest question you must ask yourself according to Hyder is, “Do you...
