Let Love Shine!

a lovely subscriber sent me a question, wanting to know how to increase her chances of conceiving and also how to enjoy a more loving relationship with her husband... so here are the positive energy tricks to do just this.

Dear S,
Thank you for your question. For hints on feng shui for fertility, there's some simple remedies here- "Bringing in the baby chi".
But you've brought up two strongly linked energetic questions and I want to go deeper with you...

Your letter reminded me of the song by Jack Johnson, called "Angel". In the lyrics he sings, "You've gotta be careful when you've got good love/ cos the angels will just keep on multiplying" I'm using his special insight to share with you a very effective feng shui strategy: a wonderful way to get closer to your husband and to make a baby is to really power up the love energy in your life!

As well as all the feng shui remedies to increase devotion, passion and partnership (just google "Feng Shui for Love" and you'll find dozens!) one of the most powerful things you can do is to make some new commitments to yourself.

1. Ideally tomorrow, as it's a powerful new moon day, make a decision about your life. For even stronger results, write it down. Own your desire to have children, decide you will, decide you will do whatever it takes to get closer to your husband, or decide that he is not the man for you and you want love & children in your life from another source.

2. Make the decision that you are in charge of the love you experience in your life. Carry a rose quartz tumbled stone around with you for the next 28 days and every time you see it or touch it, think of 1. how loved you are, 2. how much love you have inside of you, and 3. those things you really love.
- How loved you are.. call to mind family and frinds that love you and the ways they show you they care. take notice of the flowers, trees, sparkling water or shimmering desert and feel how much the universe loves you to give you a share in all this
- How much love you have inside of you.. remember times when you've done something special for someone you love. watch a sad movie and feel the compassion you have for the characters- and you don't even know them! think about the way you love your husband and get excited imagining the happy family you want to create.
-Those things you really love.. make a list of your favourite things and strive to incorporate them into your life everyday


3. Decide to create a life you love. As you begin enjoying more love in your life, whether it's by making adjustments in your work, or body, or house so you feel happier, getting rid of toxic people in your life, or taking up a new hobby, you will begin to shine. As you smile more and look forward to more everyday, your whole energetic body will lighten and you'll become more attractive as a being... and positively irresistible to your husband!

Lastly remember, we absolutely get what we focus on. Appreciating even the tiny things your husband does for you, (tell him :), looking at him and remembering what a wonderful person he is (or recalling a nice memory of him), talking about him favourably and keeping a diary of all the times you're affectionate together will all make these things happen more and more in your life.

Be happy and the loved-up being you are, S, and know the Universe wants to give you what you want (it's not a question of IF you'll get it, the only question is WHEN.)

love & blessings to you,

More of the healing power in our favourite things...

Dear Sabrina at turquoise dreams: 3 Things I love. has some very special favourite things. Are you discovering more of your own as we go on this month?

Here's a secret: I am so glad I am doing this process.

Remember when I wrote that our favourite things, especially if they are universal, can gather around and make a loving landscape no matter where in the world we find ourselves?

I was only just about to find out how true (again) this is.

Because quite suddenly a few days ago I found myself in very different territory from any I've ever been- a hospital ward here on the island. But fresh from listing my favourite things, I discovered many of them them in the unfamiliar setting around me:

.. a sunrise and sunset out the window

.. the steadfast tick-tocking of a clock

.. fluffy bedsocks

.. custard!

.. and, when there was nothing nice to look at, and only moments to "think of something that makes you feel good"; always the angels. Archangels Michael and Raphael, and Ganesh came to visit, right when they were most needed, too.

(remember, the angels need us to call on them to help us. There are many more angelic helpers than we could ever make use of, and the Archangels can be many different places at one time, so call on them whenever you feel lonely, scared, unsure or lost. They need your permission to intervene, and will be at your aid straight away.)

No end of comfort and peace was drawn from noticing and loving their presence.

There's true healing power in our favourite things.

Feng Shui your Daughter

".. Considering that, all hatred driven hence,

The soul recovers radical innocence

And learns at last that it is self-delighting,

Self-appeasing, self-affrighting,

And that its own sweet will is Heaven's will;

She can, though every face should scowl

And every windy quarter howl

Or every bellows burst, be happy still."

WB Yates, A prayer for my daughter

These pictures make me happy. Every "daughter of eve" needs a beautiful table to create at. Special tables make girls happy... don't you agree?

Real Magic: 5 Steps to a Quantum Life

Dear Friends,

as promised, here are the wonderful answers to so many questions I had regarding what I call "real" magic- quantum physics, supplied by author and expert, Natalie Reid. Enjoy our interview!


Would you define, for the non-scientists among us, what Quantum Physics actually is?

Quantum Physics really is the study of how sub-atomic particles movie inside an atom, and how they interact. And what you find is, they don’t act the way we think they would. There’s all sort of magical activity going on in there. Sub-atomic particles even move backwards and forwards in time. And some energy operates in a certain way, until we look at it… then, it changes. Since we can, as quantum physics has proven, influence the way sub-atomic particles interact through the power of observation, this leads us to the conclusion that if you focus on what you want, then you will witness what you want to see… or, you get what you focus on

What led you to making the study of Quantum Physics your career & business?
After my sister watched “What the bleep do we know?” many years ago, I went looking for more information to feed her new fascination with Quantum Physics. I couldn’t find anything that offered the answers we were looking for in the bookstores, so I decided to write my own.

What are the usual ways you use quantum physics in your own life?
I have been using Quantum Physics in my own life for 15 or 20 years. Whenever I thought of something I wanted, I would immediately identify “Is there some reason why I wouldn’t want this?” change my subconscious beliefs around it if so, and then focus, visualize and truly feel as if I deserved it and God wanted me to have it. Because I believe that we live in a benevolent universe that wants us to be happy. This Universe doesn’t want to deny us; it wants to give us what we ask. And in doing this process, I’ve discovered that I absolutely get what I focus on. It’s that simple.
Whether it’s chatting to a friend about an expensive item I needed, for her to say, “You know, I have one of those and I never use it!” which happened recently, or attracting the solution to a problem right when I require it (and there’s lots of examples of stories like this on my website), the more I see Quantum Physics around me, the more instances occur.

What’s the relationship of the Law of Attraction to Quantum Physics?
I have strong feelings about the whole concept of the “Law of Attraction”. Part of my message is 1. It isn’t a secret, and,
2. It isn’t the law of “attraction” at all.
There’s not a huge warehouse in the sky somewhere, where all the jobs you’ve ever wanted, your perfect spouse, or financial abundance is waiting. It’s not about attracting the fulfilment of these desires. It’s about creating goodness, exactly how you want it to be, and how it fits into your own life. If there’s something you want, there is nothing stopping you from getting it, apart from your resistance to the idea and any limiting beliefs you have about yourself. That’s why “attracting” parking spaces is easy. Most of us don’t have much resistance built up towards finding a nice car space. And knowing it’s a law of creation, not of simple attraction, gives us more power instead of being disappointed when positive thoughts doesn’t work so quickly with something else in our life that we have more resistance to.

What do you think of feng shui? Do you practise it? Is feng shui linked to Quantum Physics, in your opinion?
I practise and believe in feng shui. I have a lot of respect for the deities of every religion; and have Hindu, Buddhist and crystals in my home. I believe in the flow of energy all around us, yet it can remain unseen until it becomes matter.

Do you have any words on the role Quantum Physics plays in healing?
To anyone who is considering using quantum physics to heal themselves, I would first say, continue seeing your medical professionals. When something has manifested as physical, we need to deal with it on the physical level. Telling your doctor, “No it’s okay, I’m just going to heal myself!” is just being a martyr. But ask yourself that important question, “Why would I want this pain/sickness?” A lot of people get great mileage from illness- perhaps it allows them to give up something they don’t want to do, receive flowers and sympathy, or something else. Then, once you’ve cleared these subconscious issues, use the power of visualisation, just as it effects changes at the subatomic level, to see yourself well and better than ever before.”

Thank you, Natalie, for your time in answering these questions!

Natalie Reid & Synchronicity

Dear everyone,

It's my great pleasure to introduce Natalie Reid, Ph.D, author of "5 Steps to A Quantum Life: How to use The Astounding Secrets of Quantum Physics to Create the Life You Want"

She has been kind enough to write a blog for Feng Shui By The Sea on an idea I'm fascinated in, but have never been quite au fait with explaining- the concept of Synchronicity.

You might be part of the Synchronicity group in Qatar, a gathering of individuals passionate about Mind Body & Spirit topics, or you might have your own "synchronicity" group- I used to call them my "Circle of Psychics" - people who share your love of feng shui, yoga or reiki, who may call you just as you're thinking about them, or offer you something you need before you even ask...

Natalie explains, below, how Synchronicity is a natual occurrence. I hope you enjoy her explanation. In a next post I'll share with you an interview I did with Natalie, where we reveal her ideas about the Law of Attraction, the film & book The Secret, feng shui, healing and more. But for now, here's to a new understanding, and appreciation, of Synchronicity!

Synchronicity and Non-Locality of Particles

Nearly everyone has experienced the kind of synchronicity that plays out like a coincidence – you’re thinking about someone and she calls you, or you have a uneasy sense about a friend and then hear bad news about him. In quantum physics we learn about non-locality.

Experiments in the quantum have shown that one particle seems to “know” what another is doing, even when no apparent signal has passed between them, and the scientific term for that phenomenon is non-locality. These scientific words describe synchronicity!

Oh, Santa, pretty please...

This amazing little gadget just popped into my inbox.

It's the world's first feng shui electronic compass!
With the press of a button, our personal best directions are revealed in any environment.

Imagine the possibilities....

Accessing our love & romance direction whilst sitting down to dinner in a restaurant...

Choosing the best chair in the boardroom for an important meeting...

Feng shui'ing a hotel room so much more quickly and easily...

Facing our power direction when we have to put forward an argument with our troublesome teenager...

What an amazing piece of technology! (click on the picture to watch it work in video)


Are you, too, beginning to think about gift-giving as the holiday season approaches?

Here's an endorsement filled with positive energy:

"A hug is a great gift... one size fits all.
It can be given for any occasion and it's easy to exchange."

- from

This month's full moon

Out your window, as I do, do you see a sky full of stars and a pale, perfectly round moon?

And have you noticed in the past two days, as I have, you've become clearer about the WHY behind what you're doing?

You may also have come up against some skeptics...

It's face-saving (not to mention, energy-saving) to graciously concede when we feel ourselves coming head-to-head with someone. Must you prove what you know and live, to be true?

So, when you do back off- hold on to your own power.

Smile, retire inwardly, agree to disagree- it doesn't mean you haven't won.

We are all... won.

Here's one of mine... a puppy called Skye.

The Feng Shui Power of your Favourite Things

picture: white dress with blue satin sash, via {this is glamorous}

Maybe you have your favourite perfume or a lucky stone you carry... a hairstyle, or a pair of knickers you wear when you just want things to go right.

But did you know... attracting luck is a very different energy to knowing everything's going to be alright?

This difference is the Power of our Favourite Things. We want them all around us, everywhere we look, in every situation: enough talismans, enough comfort, to make us know everything is going to be okay.

If you're daring enough to move from maybe to certainty that you live in a friendly universe in a few simple steps, the world around you will look very different this time next month. It will be your world. A world you can spin whichever direction you want.

November's Cheat Sheet will guide us through. Get yours here.

A lovely surprise waits at the bottom of your November Cheat Sheet: a voucher for a Feng Shui for the Soul Life Definition coaching session- 60 minutes via telephone and with email follow-up, worth US$90- free with the purchase of one session until Dec 31.

It's to celebrate my new registration with the British Institute of Hypnotherapy and the International Coach Federation.. Subscribe here, for your coupon and full details.

Molecules of Emotion

Have you seen the movie "What the bleep do we know?"

While I'll admit that I didn't really enjoy some parts, I am absolutely fascinated by the ideas presented. One of the most amazing is the concept/discovery of Molecules of Emotion, the findings of Dr Candace Pert (who has a book by the same name).

Molecules of Emotion go a long way towards explaining the Law of Attraction and absolutely confirm the Abraham-Hicks teachings. It explains why we attract the people we attract habitually, how we get into similar life circumstances over and over again, how we can heal and why negative life-patterns make us ill in the first place.

An intrpretation can go something like this...

Each of us are hard-wired to our preference of feel-good and feel-bad chemicals in our body. Feelings, or emotions, create powerful chemical states in our bodies. And our bodies are addicted to a certain chemical state.

So what happen is: our cells crave the chemicals, our hypothalamus needs to produce them, it is stimulated by the emotions we experience to do this; so, we seek ways to experience the emotion which makes the hypothalamus produce that chemical combination.

Or the other way around: We experience circumstances that create a strong emotion, our hypothalmus produces chemicals that help our body cope with that emotion; our body, being regularly fed this chemical combination, becomes addicted to it, so we continue to seek out the emotion to get our daily "fix".

The cells in our bodies are addicted to feeling a particular way on a regular basis. Depression, anger, fear, excitement, peace, all are a unique chemical state in our body, produced to feed our cells what they desire most. If our cells are addicted to feeling stress, and need to be fed the stress cocktail, we'll find a way to feel stress no matter what is gong on in our lives. We'll attract the people and the circumstances to feel stressful.

How do we become addicted? How is one person hard-wired to feel good, and another person hard-wired to feel rejected? How do we know what chemical cocktail we're addicted to?

Q. How do we become addicted, and how is one person hard-wired to feel good, and another person hard-wired to feel rejected?

A. Simply, by habit. Whatever we're used to feeling, becomes what our body is used to and what it craves when it's taken away. Our earliest addictions are from the regular emotions we experienced at home as a child. If it was great love, we're hard-wired to find that amount of acceptance. if it's fear or competition, the chemical mix created by these emotions will lead us to seek out experiences that give us these same emotions so we get our "fix"... until we break the habit.

Q. How do we know what chemical cocktail we're addicted to?

A. Make a list of all the positive emotions you've felt in the past 48 hours. Now make a list of all the negative emotions you've felt. Put the strongest and the most frequent emotions at the top of the lists. Your body makes a unique cocktail for each of these emotions and it's this chemical combination you're addicted to.

Wouldn't you like to break your habit of addiction to those negative emotions, and experience people and circumstances that produce more of the stuff you love?

light, bright & clever

1. Happened by this delightful wallaper on Simple Lovely's blog and had to share it with you! It's a wonderful way to power up positive energy in a small space -this one was in a laundry. Use it to create your dream board, or paste happy snaps straight to the wall...

If you can't find the paper, you could stencil frames onto a plain colour wall...

2. sleek wood floors and modern, comfortable white furniture always reminds me of Sydney's northern beaches, and happy memories... relaxing on the eye and perfect in a space for entertaining.. (the elemental combo enhances communication and creativity)
