OCT 27 DESIRES KLOUD12.COM

I focus on these desires throughout my day, at least every hour.  Remaining flexible and open, allows me to control my emotions and the way I want to feel.

Today I am trusting in the divine, staying open, appreciating my sacred spaces, grounding myself with love and staying strong both physically and mentally.

I am feeling a big pull…like something BIG is about to happen.

I feel it and I am ready…

mantra-template MAY8-15

It’s mornings like this that I realize how blessed I truly am.

Having a coffee at the bus stop with the kids as we talk about what an amazing day it’s going to be. Hearing their stories of what goals they have for today and loving how they still let me hug and kiss them in front of their friends on the bus. I get to chill with my amazing guy as he gets ready for work, he always has such an optimistic view on the day and with big smiles.

Once he leaves, I do some work on my computer and tend to some current projects (for the amazing clients that I am so lucky to have).
Then I hear him, my sweet little baby talking to me from his crib…one look at his happy face and I fully melt.
Yep, I’m all sappy and completely full of love…it’s the little things that count right?
I have these mornings every week, but it’s days like today that make me appreciate my life.

Synchronicities show up to affirm that we’re going in the right direction. Well I guess today, I finally realized that I am

JUMP, DIVE, FOCUS, CREATE…

April 2, 2015 in blog, mantra's by admin

KLOUD12mantra april2:15

I read one of my OSHO intuitive cards today and it read “TRUST”.

When I looked up the meaning, I realized that by trusting I would be taking a JUMP, then a DIVE into letting go, to create better FOCUS on how to fully CREATE the life I want it.

CHANGE, PASSION, CREATIVITY, LOVE

April 1, 2015 in blog, mantra's by admin

KLOUD12matraapril1:15

This is the first day that I feel like my life is excepting CHANGE.

A new chapter…and the first of many.

Every other chapter of this life as “me” has come together relying on each other to create my “now”. A balancing act of good / bad.

This “now” includes a combination of spiritual curiosity, creative energy trying to find it’s outlet and love…

Not just love, but PASSION so big for everything…that it can’t be understood. Only felt.

Expressed in the form of constant ideas, visions and creations, that can only be the path’s beginning.

But where is the destination of this path?

Is it a state of mind?

A state that combines all areas of life and CREATIVITY…and applies them?!

Setting goals…does that limit the possibilities of this successful path? Or does it open new doors of possibilities?

How can this destination be enjoyed to the fullest? Including the journey…as short or long as it may be.

My Yogi green tea this morning read “Your greatness is not what you have, it’s what you give”.

I would like to give something to make a difference in the this world. A dose of LOVE expressed by colour and design.

Slowly, step by step…I realize it may be through a global message.

CREATING A MEDITATION STATION

March 8, 2015 in DESIGN by admin

I am talking about the perfect place to escape the craziness, for meditation OR with a tea + a good book.  I usually advise my clients to create a meditation corner or a special place to tap into their higher self.

Screen Shot 2015-03-08 at 10.31.48 PMIt works on a simple logic – if the environment around you is quiet, your mind can also be relaxed during meditation. Since meditation time is your time, your phone calls + emails can wait for those few minutes that you are with yourself.  The whole idea is to disconnect for a few minutes so that you can connect with the world better when you get back!

HOW TO CREATE YOUR OWN MEDIATION SPACE:

  • A teepee OPTIONAL (click here for DIY tee pee ideas)
  • Big comfy floor pillows
  • Cozy blankets
  • Hanging lanters with candles
  • Incense to clear the energy of the room
  • A playlist of relaxing music

What about a meditation teepee?

It’s beautifully designed and been around for thousands of years. It’s intimate and feels like a mini sanctuary once you are inside.

Other than the traditional native Tee pee’s, in 2013 tee pee’s are very trendy and perfect for fun spaces for small children. They are great in bedrooms and/or play rooms, now it’s time maybe the adults give them a try.
