And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give others permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others. ~ Marianne Williamson​

Meet Our Cover Artwork Artist, Outi Harma:

Artist of the cover painting “Beloved” is Outi Harma. She is originally from Lapland, Finland. Over twenty years ago her move to the warm, multicultural city of Los Angeles was the catalyst that catapulted her creative expression. Her images create exciting worlds that merge the visible and invisible. Her years of exploration in movement, dance and performance art, brings a wide variety of characters, fluidity and emotion to her paintings. Colors are bold and vibrant. Her main character appears to be a archetypal, mythological female who often illuminates soulful, spiritual power along with a earthly whimsicality. Her paintings can take you from the beautiful, playful childlike realm to the spiritual and physiological depths where your soul expands. For more info and her other works, visit

FeaturedArtists Jen Berlingo, Art Featured on page 83, 99 and 105 Jen is the creatrix of the SoulSpace Oracle deck, and she channels custom soul essence portraits on commission. Making art, meaning, magic, and ceremony is Jen’s every day practice to deeply connect with herself and spirit. She is a licensed counselor, a nationally registered art psychotherapist, a Reiki master, and an artist. She offers soul guidance coaching, courses, energy work, and her visual art.

Lori Portka, Art Featured on page 23 and 121 I create all of my artwork by first sitting quietly in front of a blank canvas with my eyes closed and giving thanks for the sacred time to create. I believe that artwork carries energy and feel that it is my job as an artist to spread love and kindness through the work I create. All of the products in my line are designed with the intention to spread love and happiness.

& Duane Packer

As you magnetize what you want and follow your inner guidance, you will want to allow success into your life so you can receive what you have asked for. Mastering manifesting involves learning to make those choices and decisions that hold the most light for you and put you on to your higher path As you choose the path of most light, you are also choosing success at its highest levels. You create the reality you experience by the choices and decisions you make. What you have and where you are today are the results of all the choices and decisions you have made. Many of your choices have been passive, made without conscious examination. Many have been based on your past programming rather than on your new, unlimited thinking. You can begin now to make more conscious, aware choices. Acknowledge that where you are today is a result of your past choices, and realize that at every moment you are truly creating your reality. If you are not happy with what you have created so far, you can learn to make different choices and change your life into one that brings you joy, aliveness, or whatever else you want.

I always choose the path of most light. You are a special unique person and you have a meaningful contribution to make to the world. Every person is born with a purpose There is a reason you are here; you have a role to play that no one else on the planet could fill. The special contribution you came to make is your life’s work. When you are doing that work, you are following your higher path, and your life will be filled with increasing joy, abundance, and wellbeing.

Intuitive Readings & Healings

3 Essential tips in Fung Shui By Tricia Wright, Feng Shui Practitioner, ZenDen Life (View Bio on pg 25)

Feng Shui originates from ancient China about 5000 years ago linking the destiny of man to his environment. It aims to ensure that people live in harmony with their surroundings. The term feng shui literally translates as “wind-water” in English. The Chi rides the wind and scatters, but is retained when encountering water. The art of Feng Shui helps one create a harmonious and balanced environment that supports different aspects of our life such as wealth, health, love and joy.

Here are 3 essential Feng Shui tips to get Started! #1 DE-CLUTTER Get rid of everything you do not love or serves a purpose in your home or business. Clearing clutter is a process that will feel like therapy and will help you let go of things that are blocking CHI flow. Clutter is low, stagnant and confusing energy that drains energy from you. Clearing things that longer serves you will clear space for more blessings and opportunities to enter your life. Do not skip this step, as it is an essential one in creating a harmonious Feng Shui home or business. #2 CREATE A STRONG FRONT ENTRANCE The front door is called the Mouth of the Chi in Feng Shui and its strength and auspicious energy is very important for a good feng shui house. Remove all dead plants and unwanted clutter that is blocking positive life force energy. Create a strong front entrance by investing a beautiful door mat, bring vibrant healthy plants/flowers, and good lighting to activate the CHI and create a warm and welcoming environment. All of life’s blessing enters through the front door, such as Love, Wealth, Good Health and Prosperity! #3 GET GOOD AIR QUALITY Open the windows often, introduce air-purifying plants and diffuse essential oils. One of the top air purifying plants identified by NASA, Sansevieria removes at least 107 air pollutants, Sansevieria also produces copious amounts of oxygen throughout the night, making it an excellent plant to keep in the bedroom. Diffusing essential oils can help you sleep and relax, elevate your mood, ward off illness, and help you breathe easier.

One final note, Everything in Feng Shui is alive and speaking to you. We want it to say nice things. BACKGROUND ART BY JEN BERLINGO JENBERLINGO.COM

Routine Ideas



Drink 1/2 to 1L water in the morning before consuming anything else. Bonus points for adding lemon juice, apple cider vinegar, and/or sea salt! Aids in detoxification, hydration, plumper skin, and increased energy. Enjoy a smoothie with fruits and juice or water. You can also add in mild greens such as spinach, romaine, and/or cucumber. If you’d like some fats, add almond milk, coconut oil, or avocado. This starts your day off right with additional hydration, vitamins & minerals, energy, as well as detoxifying benefits and self love. Jump on a rebounder (mini trampoline) to improve and strengthen your lymphatic system and as bonuses: cleared sinuses, toned muscles, and increased creativity! Open up the blinds & curtains to let in the natural light ~ great for improving mood & perception, awakening and aiding in task performance, and abiding to the body’s natural circadian rhythm. Dry brush skin before your shower. A great exfoliator, stimulates lymph flow and detoxification, & boosts energy. Start at the feet and hands and brush stroke towards the heart. Read or watch something inspiring, before delving into email, social media, text messaging, or phone conversations. Write down 3 things you are grateful for. Research shows this improves relationship with self and others, physical & psychological health, improved sleep & self esteem! Feel free to write in your gratitude on the open lines to your right: Write down 3 things you wish to do or achieve. Goal setting provides direction & focus, clarity in decision making, motivation, an increased sense of purpose & personal satisfaction.


WellBEing Resource • 2018 Edition

Try organic tea instead of coffee. Despite the caffeine, green tea has been shown to have detoxifying benefits, lowering of blood pressure, and reduction of stress hormones! Not usually the case with coffee. Meditate and/or breathe deeply for 5 minutes. Simply focus on the breath or enjoy background nature sounds. As thoughts come up, and they will, simply acknowledge them and let them go. With time, you’ll notice it becomes easier and easier to keep focus on the breath. Enjoy lessened stress and increased creativity, focus, and memory. Make your bed. ”If you want to change the world, start off by making your bed. If you make your bed every morning, you will have accomplished the first task of the day. It will give you a small sense of pride, and it will encourage you to do another task, and another, and another. And by the end of the day that one task completed will have turned into many tasks completed.” - US Navy Admiral William H. McCraven

Feeling OF BEING Alive


by Leo Babauta of

There’s a practice so simple that many people will discount it as not worthy of trying. They’ll miss out on the transformative power of that very simplicity. The practice is this: Sit still for a moment, and just feel what it feels like to be alive. Then relax into that feeling. Yes, I know, sitting still for a moment isn’t something we want to do right now. We got things to do, man! But just try it, for a minute. Sit still and feel what it feels like to be alive, for you, right this moment. There’s never been another moment like this particular one, and never will be again. Let me repeat that: There’s never been another moment like this particular one, and never will be again. That means that at this moment, we have the opportunity to fully appreciate the miracle of this moment, and how it came to be from the infinite number of causes that created it from preceding moments. We are alive in this moment because of millions of other people who have supported us, because of everything on this planet, which just happened to be the perfect conditions for creating the person we are right this moment. What a freakin’ miracle!

Close Your Eyes. Fall in Love. Stay There. ~ Rumi


WellBEing Resource • 2018 Edition

To listen to the below meditation in audio format, visit:

So tune in, and notice what it feels like to be alive right now: What sensations do you notice in your body? What is the energy of those sensations? Does the energy change, or move? What is the texture of your breath? Do you notice pain, discomfort, tenderness, tightness? Get curious and explore, investigate, look even closer. Take in the totality of your sensory input, all at once, holding it in your awareness. Stay with this feeling, instead of moving on. Then stay a little more. Now that you’ve become curious, investigated, and stayed with your experience … try this: Relax into the feeling. That means if there’s any tightness around your experience, just relax that tightness. Relax into your experience. Often we have some kind of aversion to what we’re experiencing, or an urge to get away from it, and I’m suggesting we relax and just be with it, just as it is, not needing it to be different. Find gratitude for the feeling of being alive, even if there’s pain, tightness, discomfort. Be grateful for the miracle you are lucky enough to witness right now. Find love for everything you hold in your awareness, from everything around you to your own experience, your body and breath. It’s all one thing, and all held in your love. Before you dismiss any of this, try it. Experience even the sensation of your resistance.

Look deep into nature & you will understand everything better ~ Albert Einstein
