Getting in flow with the Universe is actually EASY. It’s meant to be easy. Try these three simple steps anytime you feel your energy off kilter, you feel sad, down or in a life funk.
How to Get in Flow With The Universe in 3 Easy Steps
Smile - smiling raises our frequency, the Universe responds to frequency and vibration. If you are feeling down, be willing to sit with yourself for a moment, close your eyes, and let a smile move across your face. It may feel strange but it can shift your mood & energy almost instantly. Try this the next time you are feeling stuck or lonely.
Love Yourself, Love Your Body - We are spiritual beings having a human experience. Our body truly is our temple. When we ground & root ourselves in the body via exercise, movement & self-care, we raise our vibration. The Universe (in my opinion) as well as our Higher Self (our soul) deeply appreciates & honors us when we honor our bodies. Our physical vessels are sacred and they deserve love and respect. Our mood & energy instantly shifts when we are honoring our bodies with movement. Notice when you are consistent with loving yourself & moving your body, your whole perception of reality changes.
The Universe has an easier time getting into touch with you when you are feeling good in the totality of your physicality!
Get Present to the Moment - this is an exercise I have been utilizing with a lot of my clients lately. If you are feeling crappy, notice, notice that you are feeling down and a bit dampened. Take that as a signal from your soul that it needs you to get present to the moment, then try this:
touch something on your body, your clothing, your face, your hand, something to get you present to your body, your ability to feel textures & to connect to yourself
secondly, look around you and take in everything around you. what you’ll notice often times if you are existing, you are not present to the beautiful sounds, sights & energies all around you - take in every detail or everything, keep watch as the Universe reveals all the way it speaks with you. The Universe communicates to us most easily & readily when we are fully present to all that’s going on around us
third, take a deep breath in, notice smells, sensations as you orient yourself fully to the present moment.
Try these three steps consistently to feel the magical flow of being in touch & in tune with the Uni. When we remember how important our vibrational frequency is & keep in touch with Universal energy it really feels good, why? Because we are mind, body & spirit. Not just mind & body! These simply practices connect you to your soul quickly & easily. When we feel connected to our soul, we feel connected to the Universe & the Universe feels GOOD & MAGICAL!
Love you angels so much, I hope this helps!

Ok so first off, I know I haven’t spoken with you much about sex, orgasms or sexual energy. But in truth, I am an Aries and sexual energy is my bench mark. My sign is Mars ruled aka, A LOT of sexual vibes. I believe in the power of pleasure as self care, self respect and a space to create what you want in your Universe.
Have you ever heard of manifesting with your orgasms?
Do you know the power of taking yourself to a place of no thought?
What is the (or, a) spiritual perspective on orgasm and pleasure as an incarnate woman?
And how to tie this with Astrology?: Each and every sign has their own unique way of expressing their sexuality & sensuality, uniquely, beautifully & powerfully, no one sign is more sexual than the other, just a nota bene! ;)
First off, what the F is up with manifesting with your orgasms? Is that seriously a thing? YES. Ok, so WHY?
First off, orgasm as a woman is a deep release (as it is for everybody;) it taps us into our essential nature, into our totality, our goddess/god self, our truth.
Pleasure, beauty & totality ARE OUR BASIC NATURE.
Why does the orgasm feel SO GOOD? Because it reminds us of WHAT WE ARE INNATELY: LOVE, POWER, BEAUTY, TOTALITY.
Manifesting is all about calling in what you want from a space of NO THOUGHT, meaning, you can’t think, control & call the shots, MAGIC is created when we are in a space of surrender.
Orgasm = the ultimate surrender.
Want to manifest something or call it into your experience? The next time you pleasure yourself, do it with ritual, with awareness and as you release, bring the vision of what it is you are calling in, into your inner mind. May sound strange, but try it, manifesting & creating magic are all about utilizing the mind as a tool, and doing so in total surrender…
Have you ever tried to send the world loving, peaceful energy when you come?
You should try it.
Being that we are all collective and connective energy, we can create the life we want as well as save the world with the big O. AMAZING RIGHT? We are so magical!
As women, we all have a powerful Venusian energy inherent to us.
She is our power place, she is our space of authenticity, feminine power & creative energy. She is our guiding force and as you know, I have been talking and teaching so much more on the power of Venus recently because just this year did I finally come to understand the power of the feminine, pleasure & surrender in my own life.
All this being said, I have something INCREDIBLY exciting to announce - the perfect space for you to practice your O manifesting as well as tapping into your VENUS ENERGY & SELF LOVE SELF CARE SELF HONORING ENERGY.
I was asked by the incredible all-women run, environmentally friendly & POWERHOUSE team of babes that is Bijoux Indiscrets to partner with them on their erotic chic collection Horoscope.
Horoscope is a collection of 12 unique pleasure kits custom created for each Zodiac sign including an earth friendly vibrator (meaning the contents utilized to create it are all vegan & non-harmful to the planet and your beautiful V), orgasm gel (with beautiful fragrances from vetiver to ginger, each custom created to suite the energy of each sign) + a gemstone necklace (custom created to honor each sign) so you can carry the energy of self love in your crystal wherever you go <3
Want to get yours? http://bit.ly/HoroscopePleasureKits

Furthermore, go explore your unique pleasure kit from Bijoux Indiscrets AND be sure to find out about your unique Venus sign, take that into account when picking your kit!
How does the Universe bring us more of what we want?
By acknowledging our greatness & our gratitudes.
I’ve really been exploring the energies of magnetism and receptivity lately. Like instead of nose to the grind stone, how about meditation with stones? :)
Why do we so rarely sit back and acknowledge all the work we have done?
Why do we expect ourselves to DO, DO & MORE DO, all the time?
Doing, action & forward movement are obviously paramount to an incredible life, but, we also truly need to practice the opposite side of the coin: receptivity and simply BEING.
We have to be poised to receive and the Universe can’t do that on our behalf if we’re thinking we need to be in constant motion at all times.
Here is a brief exercise i’d love for you to take a moment & try before the end of 2018.
Sit down where you won’t be disturbed for a moment.
Open up a document or get out a piece of blank paper.
And simply do this:
Write down everything you have achieved or experienced this year (that maybe you never thought you could or would do).
Points to keep in mind as you create your list:
Acknowledge your progress, talk to your soul & heart a moment, imagine ALL of the things you NEVER thought would happen, but did
Acknowledge the positive, empowering uplifting parts of your life
Acknowledge your Successes
Bask in this energy for a moment, really sit back and honor yourself
The reason this is also so powerful is, wherever there feel to be loop holes or empty spaces, you can begin to build your intentions for 2019!
Enjoy this process!
Feel into the power ONE YEAR CAN CREATE! Feel into the POWER OF YOU!
I am proud of you!
YAY. My most comprehensive GLOWING skin post, I think ever!
I get a lot of comments on my skin and complexion and as of late I have been discovering such incredible products.
I am getting older believe it or not (thank you Insta filters;) and i’ve really started investing love, energy & $$ into my skin regimen.
The Winter is so tough on our skin! Watch my full video above for ideas on hydrating, skin-lovin’, CLEAN products that are beautiful for you during these drying months as well as your skin!
I also talk about how beautiful clear skin is a 2-part process.

Great piece on Chinese Face Mapping: https://themindsjournal.com/face-reveal-which-part-body-sick/
Ok, so yay!
I always love to see an extremely positive aspect happening in the Cosmos, even though
I ALSO DEEPLY BELIEVE, we create our lives, our destiny, our experience, our energy.
Let’s think of it as a co-creative dance with the Universe so we can become our highest & best selves! :)
Shit has been real as of late. Venus Retrograde was INTENSE and offered a lot of deep work and she traversed through Scorpio, most likely making a tight conjunction to many of your guys’ (and mine) Natal Pluto placements if you were born between 1983-1995 making it EXTRA INTENSE in terms of letting shit go.
Then we headed right into a Mercury Retrograde which can be mentally stimulating & communication-ally challenging, all at once.
And to top it off 2018 has been a year of deep spiritual work.
As is always the case in School EARTH. We are here to evolve, grow & reach our high potential all while learning self love, kindness towards humanity & the attempt to have FUN while living in a reality of contrast.
It’s a pretty tall f*cking order, but we signed up for it :) hehe
I wanted to make a quick little guide on this lovely energetic day of Sun Conjunct Jupiter which is a WELCOME THANK YOU from us to the Universe as the energy is LIGHT, EXPANSIVE & BEAUTIFUL.
Sun = our awareness, positive energy, light, ego, our vitality
Jupiter = expansion, abundance, luck, fortune, optimism
So imagine! Those two lovely heavenly bodies sharing energy today! What does that mean for you?
Well just like Natal Chart Astrology I like to take a look at inception points as momentary opportunities to make an energetic impression in your Life & the Universe’s dance with YOU! AKA - Start the below practices today in building a life worth expanding, fortune & all around positive f*cking energy!
How to Rule at LIFE in 7 Easy Steps (go 1-7 like building blocks)
Invest in the Health of your Body - our BODY is our foundation, exercise, yoga, dance, get movement in regularly. We open ourselves up to our power by first tapping into this basic truth: our body is our temple, literally!
Honor your need for Pleasure, Sensuality & Creativity - creativity is a basic need. We are creative beings, we need little bits of connection & expression all of the time to feel vital and alive. Sensual & Sexual expression is also paramount, so whether you are giving that to yourself regularly or are in a partnership, you get the idea ;) And the better we feel in our body, the easier it is to express this second step because we aren’t distracted by feeling weird in our body, ya feel me?
Create your Life Purpose no matter how big or small - being in our power feels super good. Feeling like we can be OURSELVES is even better. This is what creates true happiness & fulfillment. Create or find what fills you up and gets you EXCITED about existing.
LOVE YOURSELF & LOVE OTHERS - Kindness towards yourself is a constant practice, the more we can love ourselves even through mistakes or low moments we create an energetic resonance that calls this in throughout our entire lives. Let other people love you, ask for what you need, be willing to meet yourself on a deeper emotional level by letting yourself FEEL. The more rooted you feel in Step 1, 2 & 3 - the easier this all is.
Speak your Needs, Ask For What You Really Want - Self Expression is vital to a healthy, powerful life. Simply ask for what you need or express your heart. The more awakened you are in Step 4, the easier self expression can be.
Work on Opening your Intuition - The more in tune we feel with our intuitive nature the more complete we feel. I like to think of our intuition as also tapping into our feminine faculties, allow time with or near water to honor this part of ourselves, our receptive state where information & inspiration flows freely to us.
Meditate, Have Some Sort of Spiritual Practice - tune into your soul & heart every day in some way. Whether it’s meditation, mirror work, Tai Chi, Yoga, affirmations, chanting, the list could go on forever. Make time for the holistic part of you which is having a relationship to your Spirit which is an expression of your totality, your relationship to the Universal OverSoul, your heart, ancestors, angels, ETC.

Hi angels, this Podcast is quite a vulnerable share for me but one that I feel and know is deeply important.
Why am I so obsessed with Astrology? Because on a very real level, Astrology can help us understand our twists and turns, our darkness & our trouble with Life itself! When we understand ourselves we are so deeply powerful.

“If you are willing to look at another person’s behavior toward you as a reflection of the state of their relationship with themselves rather than a statement about your value as a person, then you will, over a period of time cease to react at all.”
― Yogi Bhajan
Everything stated here is reflective of my own perspectives & experiences around love, heartbreak & human sexuality. I also figured being that this is Scorpio Season, and Scorpio rules the genitals and sex, this as a good time to traverse this topic.
I deeply believe we are spiritual beings having a human experience and we are here to connect with one another to learn, grow & evolve into the highest and most powerful expressions of who we are: through the light and the dark.
Every person you have ever experienced in your life, including the ones you are experiencing now, you have called towards yourself perfectly. In some way or another, they are there to mirror aspects of you for the sake of evolution and growth. Everything comes down to perspective and if we are willing to see every being, even the ones we can’t stomach, as some aspect of us.
I preface this because I think it’s a key component in understanding the deeper essence around sex and relationships.
The realm of sexuality and relationships with men have been my deepest teachers, often times with a lot of pain, confusion and suffering involved in the mix. But, I was always willing to take accountability on some part of the dynamic as well as, be responsible for my own happiness and growth. This attitude is how I sit with all of you today, taking on the study of the mystical, personal development, astrology, tarot, spirituality, etc. etc. etc. these things were all catalyzed for me because of the pain and confusion i’ve experienced from sex and relationships. Hence, there is perfect order in everything, even the darkest darkest, leads you, to your light.
Relationships are mirrors and teachers and that’s it.
They are there to show you parts of yourself that you don’t exactly have to face when you are cruising solo. They are also there for mutual enrichment, love, joy and comfort. Relationships are contracted before you even get here - they are soul bonds and soul recognition. When you feel like you know and understand someone on a deep level even when you don’t know them very well, chances are you do know them very well, just not from this incarnation.
Some relationships are energetically meant to remain in our lives for a very long time, some are only meant for a very short time. This is all dependent on the energy and contract inherent in the bond between two beings, not one’s worth or value.
When something doesn’t work out with someone, don’t look at it as a question of your worth or their worth, it’s energy and it’s contract. Be willing to look at it as, our time is or was complete for now, what did I learn? What was I able to give? What can I take away from this experience with this being? Can I wish them love, peace & respect?
If you are having trouble healing or moving past something, try EFT Tapping.
Now onto sex, I look at sex in an interesting way. Sex is our experience of higher energy, we are beings of energy and whenever we merge with another persons body, not only does it feel physically good, it’s also because on the energetic soul level, we are remembering what we are: totality, total and complete energy. This is why being human can be so challenging sometimes because we are here to experience ourselves not only as singular, but also, dualistically. Do you catch what I am saying here? Hence, sex and the merging of two energy fields feels amazing because in essence, it reminds us of what we are.
Combining all the things I L O V E.

Expressive & remarkable is the Gemini woman. Your ability to captivate with thought, word & mystery is similar to the energy of the Queen of Swords (the Queen of Queens) in the Tarot.

You show the example of ingenuity, style & uniqueness in all that you create, do & dream.

Thank you for reminding us in the power of resilience and consistency. Remember to ask for help from others when you need it.

Your mark on life is beautiful, your kindness & loyalty is powerful. Thank you for inspiring.
Scorpio Woman, there is a power and a mystery to you that is truly remarkable. Do you know and remember your own strength even in times of challenge or burden?

Remember & love the strength and space you hold.
Optimism incarnate, inspiration abounding. You are so illuminating Sagittarius Woman, thank you for inspiring & guiding with candor & empowerment. Do you know your own strength?

Spend time near water when you batteries need to be re-charged, ask the beings in your life for guidance or assistance when you are feeling lost. Others want to show up and help you just as much as you help them.
A tangible, practical, quick P.Cast (Podcast:) on living like an Empowered Bad Ass, Self Aware Queen by being aware & IN LOVE with your Menstrual Cycle!
Babes, this is such an important topic to me. I see so many of my clients, friends & of course myself, so at odd, in judgment when we aren't performing at 100% top of the mountain, kicking ass every damn day.
That just isn't fair.
Our bodies and our physiology are unique to what is expected from us in society, we are Cyclical Beings, we are ever changing.
We are meant to have highs & lows, we are meant to imbibe the feelings of life.
Our Cycle, our ability to create life & beauty from our bodies, is what enables this deeper wisdom and awareness. It's something simply to be understood and honored in stead of judged and rejected.
So it starts with us and I hope this Podcast Episode helps. Please share this with your sister friends, young gals, etc. This is how we bring body awareness and shift the paradigm around our bodies and our menstruation.
In this Episode:
+ How to Easily Honor the 4 Phases of your Cycle
+ Why Our Bodies are Different & Why this is A Blessing
+ Our Cycles in sync with the Moon
+ The Balance of our Masculine & Feminine - how to use this awareness to basically be unstoppable
+ How Honoring our Cycles makes us EMPOWERED instead of depleted & judgmental
+ and of course, join me for my Women's Course where I go deeper into this! The LIVE Course begins Oct. 9th, 2018 & the Digital Course goes live tomorrow!

WOW. WHAT A WEEK.
It's so interesting because, as an Astrologer there are definitely times where I can guesstimate that an upcoming week will be fluid, or challenging, well to be so honest and vulnerable, I had a hunch that leading up to this Full Moon could be full-on, but I didn't expect it to be as full-on as it was!
Full Moon's are always about releasing what doesn't serve. The aspects guiding us up to this very beautifully aspected Full Moon in Pisces gave me a hunch that it could be A LOT, but I got a little thrown off because the actual aspects of the Full Moon were SO LOVELY. #DUALITY
We learn to grow. We suffer to know what happiness is. If we didn't know pain, we wouldn't know lightness of being.
Pisces energy circumvents around the Soul. It guides us home to the compassion of Spirit, the Universe and understanding ourselves from a holistic, esoteric & all encompassing way.
This Full Moon opposes the very reality driven, in the moment energy of Sun in Virgo (which we just entered into on Thursday!) and whatever fell into disarray this week was guiding us home into the Truth of Surrender to the Universe, which is what Pisces is all about.
I read in this amazing book I have called "Moon Power" that the Goddess Sedna rules over a Moon in Pisces. You can call upon Sedna when you are hurting or feeling the pangs of life deeply, she is a very compassionate & strong Goddess and rules over this Lunation.
I want you to do what you'd like with the following rituals, make them your own, be creative,
you can't do it wrong when you are coming from the heart.
What You'll Need:
Your Favorite Crystals - Make sure they aren't water soluble! I suggest Rose Quartz, Crystal Quartz (if bathing during the day), Selenite & Turquoise
Bath Salts - For cleansing old energy
Flowers - Make your space beautiful, you can put the flowers in you bath water or around the tub
Candles - Light a candle or a few around the tub, obviously be careful with the flame! Make your bath ceremonial
Sage and/or Palo Santo - Cleanse yourself before you get in, and wave a bit of smoke over the tub. You can leave it to burn out while you are bathing
Beautiful Music or Mantras - I love any and all Kundalini Mantras. You can google "Kundalini Mantra for _____" really anything! Healing your Heart, Prosperity, Clearing Energy, etc.
While You're In the Tub - do a bit of meditating, pamper yourself, read poetry or a book, leave your phone far away or off for a bit, just sit with your essence and Be.
When You're Complete drain the bath rub while you are still in it, envision whatever no longer serves you gently and gracefully leaving with the bath water. Send love & gratitude for the lessons and the energy you have traversed and for the cleansing power of Water.
Meditation for Release & Call In:
* Please be careful lighting things on fire! *
What You'll Need:
A Piece of Paper & Pen
A Large Glass Bowl
Flowers, Candles, Crystals, Tarot Cards - anything to beautify your surroundings and make the space feel sacred.
What You'll Do:
Sit down in your quiet, beautiful space where you won't be disturbed for a bit.
Sage or Palo Santo yourself & your little sacred space before you begin your ritual.
First, call upon your angels or your favorite Ascended Masters - I invoked Mother Mary, Quan Yin & Arc Angel Michael to be with me during my ritual. You literally can't do this wrong, just call upon your spiritual team for assistance and love as you move through and release whatever it is you don't need any longer.
Meditate and do some deep breathing for 5-18 minutes.
When you come out of your Meditation, with the Glass Bowl in Front of you - write down 5 things you are releasing with this Full Moon energy. Read them out loud. Carefully burn it in the bowl and light some sage after. Say Thank You.
After that, write down 6 things you are calling in to replace those energies - make these positive statements. Put this little list on your altar, or somewhere you can see it until the next New Moon (which will be in Virgo:)
You are welcome to pull a Tarot card or cards and do a little contemplation and gratitude work before you end your Ritual.
I also encourage having a little loving conversation with yourself to end the Ritual. Say Thank You to your guides and angels for their love, guidance & support always.
Honor the Work You have Done and So It IS!
Beautiful work, love you!

Second to Celestine Prophecy for me is Conversations with God. I remember reading two distinct parts of this book that literally catapulted my spiritual awakening when I was 19, no joke!!!!
3. Many Lives, Many Masters by Dr. Brian Weiss
If you know me, you know I am obsessed with Past Life Regression and past life wisdom in general.. I find it so incredibly empowering and fascinating to understand our souls are on this eternal journey together. Gives so much comfort.
4. Journey of Souls by Dr. Michael Newton
I read this book traveling through Europe, it's one of those books i've read probably 4x and given away every copy i've ever owned. This is an absolute must must must read, again brings so much comfort and illumination of the souls journey and the human experience.
5. The Alchemist by Paolo Coehlo
I have only listened to this in audio-book form and I re-listen every time I need to be reminded on the power, trust & faith it takes to walk a bigger path.
6. Shambhala - The Sacred Path of the Warrior by Chogyam Trungpa
This is a new book for me, but already i've wept 10x reading it. The reminders are paramount to living an intentional and peaceful life as a spiritual warrior.
7. You are a Bad Ass at Making Money by Jen Sciencero
This book is life changing. Jen has such an empowering and funny way talking about money, overcoming her own struggles in her finances as well as playing small in general. A must read, especially listen in audio form! Constant inspiration.
8. Secrets of a Millionaire Mind by T. Harv Eker
I have been reading this book off and on since I was about 24 and began my first business. As far as I am concerned it's one of the most spiritual books on this list.
9. The Only Astrology Book You'll Ever Need by Joanna Martine Woolfolk
Another new read for me -- but one of the most comprehensive and genius books on complete Astrology i've found thus far!
10. Love, Freedom, Aloneness by Osho
This book i've read off and on for many, many, many years. An empowering and interesting look in maintaining independence, strength and truly loving in intimate relationships. I've struggled with abandonment issues & co-dependency in the past and this book is definitely a tough but empowering read.
11. Men Don't Love Women Like You by G.L. Lambert
Another amazing book for Women - honoring our worth and feminine power within the realm of sexual relationships. My bestie Nikki turned me onto this- warning, it's very vulgar but it's hilarious. If you need a good kick in the ass to remember you are a fucking goddess, especially in relationships, then you should read this.
12. The Universe Has Your Back by Gabby Bernstein
My fave audiobook ever. I turn it on whenever I need a cosmic reminder because I know wherever it lands I am going to get incredibly inspired & a mega great download from Gabby!
13. Mala of the Heart - Edited by Ravi Nathwani & Kate Vogt
I almost burned my old house down (when living in Santa Monica...long story) and after 3 days of grieving I found this book of poems on the side of the street. No doubt God talking to me. Order this and be prepared to weep because it's so freaking beautiful.
14. The Science of Mind by Ernest Holmes
Another new read for me - but, this book inspires and empowers that we are creating are lives... insanely powerful and very intense, so be aware and maybe read the synopsis before you order. It's about 800+ pages.
15. Red Moon - Understanding & Using the Gifts of the Menstrual Cycle
As you guys know, I am going to be empowering you and myself to be more and more in flow with awareness of our menstrual cycles. This book catalyzed this journey for me, I haven't finished it but wanted to add it here anyway.
This Interview w/ mega amazing powerhouse (and one of my Coaching clients) Erin May Henry is truly the catalyst to me wanting to create the
Amazing how via conversations with others who empower and enrich us, we can become more clear.
This is truly one of my favorite interviews of all time, jam packed with a lot of powerful insight & inspiration on my journey as an Female Entrepreneur & how I personally brand myself.

My first guest post! With the most incredible babe of babes, Madison Young, the owner of the chic, mid-city crystal shoppe x mystic haven (/my favorite place in LA!), Open Eye Crystals! I asked Madison to write us the perfect New Moon Crystal Manifestation Guide... see below, and enjoy!
By working with Lunar cycles are in flow with the pushes and pulls of life. When you are in sync with the cosmic energies life won't feel like you are swimming upstream. Full Moons are great for releasing what no longer serves and New Moons are phenomenal for manifesting. Below is my 4-step ritual process to New Moon manifesting using crystals.
1. Clear Yourself and Your Space
Before starting any ritual or practice it is important to clear any stagnant or heavy energy that is lingering in your space or within your auric field. I will start the clearing process by burning sage and wafting the smoke in the corners of the room (this is where energy gets stuck the most) then circling the smoke around my body. As I do this I say a little prayer. Before we invite in new intentions, we must release what no longer serves to hold space for new energy. My sageing motto is "I release any energy that is not for my highest good and transmute it to usable/positive energy. I bring in 100 percent pure white light to raise the vibration of this environment."
2. Ground and Connect to Lunar Energy
After you cleared the energy and your aura is now bright and shiny, it is time to connect to Mother Earth and with Mama Luna. Sit on the floor with an erect back and begin to visualize in your mind's eye roots stemming from the base of your spine, growing deep down into the earth. With every breath, these roots grow deeper and stronger until they hit the center of the Earth. Here you tap into the Earth Star's limitless source of prana (energy/vitality source). Now that you are grounded, it is time to open your crown chakra and third eye to the blacked-out disc in the sky, our beautiful New Moon. Although we can't see this sphere above us, close your eyes and draw an etheric beam from your top of your crown to seemingly infinite matter above. With every breath, you are deepening your connection with the Lunar energy and cycles. You feel her gentle yet potent vibrations. Now that you are connected with both the Earth and the Moon, take a few more breaths starting with an inhale from the Earth's center, rising through your chakras and out of your crown to the Moon. Complete the breath cycle by exhaling from the cosmos down through your chakras, back into the Earth's center. Repeat this breath until you feel centered.
3. Set Intentions with Crystals
Crystals are an extremely potent way to amplify and harness one's intentions. When it comes to manifesting I have three tiers of crystals that build on each other depending on the level of sauce I need to bring to the table.
Level 1: Foundation
These stones are the building blocks to New Moon Manifestation.
-Moonstone: Gem of the High Priestess. Connects to the energy, power and cycles of the moon. Increases intuition and inner vision. Calls in the divine feminine. Chakra: 3rd Eye, Crown Physical: Menstruation, Hormone Imbalances
-Rutilated Quartz: Quickens the process of manifestation. Magnifies the energy of any intention or affirmation. Removes blockages to health and abundance. Helps follow through with ideas. Pairs well with Moldavite. Chakra: All Physical: Hair Growth
-Clear Quartz: Stone of Light, bringing heightened spiritual awareness. Most versatile stone due to its energy amplification, programmability and memory. Pairs well with every stone. Chakra: All Physical: Nervous System
Our New Moon Manifestation kits include the above crystals. These kits are available in store now and online early August!
Level 2: Extra Gravy
These stones are perfect when you need to pack that extra punch to your New Moon intentions.
-Yellow Apatite: Assists in being assertive and confident. Enhances personal charisma. Amazing for manifesting and starting new projects. Pairs well with Libyan Desert Glass. Chakra: Solar Plexus Physical: Metabolism, Digestion
-Golden Labradorite: Curbs procrastination. Amazing for confidence, assertiveness, purpose and courage. Helps resolve issues around power in past and current life. Assists in perceiving one’s own gifts. Pairs well with Moldavite. Chakra: Solar Plexus Physical: Kidneys, Gallbladder
Level 3: Big Guns
Bring these babies to the table when you need to bring the heat in the realest way.
-Libyan Desert Glass: Strengthens one’s will, ability to create and one’s will power of manifestation. Powerfully enhances one’s personal ritual regarding manifestation. Pairs well with Moldavite and Yellow Sapphire. Chakra: All especially Solar Plexus Physical: Stomach, Digestive Issues
-Green Uvarovite Garnet: Embodies the frequency of prosperity and wealth. Teaches that one does not need to struggle for abundance. Teaches that abundance and bounty is our birthright. Pairs well with Moldavite. Chakra: Heart, Solar Plexus Physical: Heart Related Ailments
4. Conclude with Gratitude
"Life is great when you live with gratitude." One of my favorite quotes my mother bestowed on me. We can all find at least one thing to be grateful for. Speak that gratitude into existence! With any practice, when you express gratitude you are opening your heart center and holding space for love and light. Your capacity to manifest is limitless when it comes from a place of love.
One of my favorite “New Age” books is Ruby Warrington’s “Material Girl, Mystical World”. Why? Because I love the concept of bringing esoteric wisdom into the modern world so that ALL of life can be enjoyed. The Material is truly not separated from the Spiritual- We are here to enjoy & I know that when we feel amazing in our physical vessel, we are honoring our Soul.
I also believe that glow is something that comes from within and that the human vessel is our vehicle for the soul’s expression.
Fashion, our skin, our makeup, the way we present ourselves, dress our spirit & present our essence to one another, should we choose to look at it that way.
I’ve been excited to share some of my glow secrets, Los Angeles beauty hacks & other fun “Material Girl” type suggestions! Not only that, I love promoting & supporting the incredible women I receive these services from. So here goes... ;)
1. Aries like their Brows Bold AF
Microblading w/ Angelina Mancinas
Ok, so Angelina is a Pisces. We met years ago on Facebook & she offered to do my makeup for a DJ gig that I had. Angelina is drop dead gorgeous & the kindest spirit you will ever meet. All that aside she this babe knows eyebrows.
She first started shaping my brows when threading was a major thing & then introduced me to microblading years later.
I am an Aries & there is one funny characteristic about many of us and that is we love a good, bold brow, mostly because we like to look fierce AF. lol.
I was experiencing some hormonal issues a few years back & the ends of my brows were beginning to thin. Angelina began to thread my brows and as my diet & health re-regulated everything has come back full force with the microblade shading giving me a beautiful shape & thickness I didn’t have before. Angelina is gentle & numbs the sh*t out of you before hand, but do know that the word “blade” is inherent in the term “microblading” so I would just suggest numbing for as long as possible & being sure to eat a full meal before. Angelina will take amazing care of you & your brows.

2. Healthy Hair is a MUST - Golden Locks are my version of having a halo ;)
Healthy Bleach Blonde from Sustainable Beauty Expert, Meleesa of Meleesa the Salon
Meleesa and I also found one another in a magical way. She is a Gemini and a GENIUS with hair. Meleesa is an expert with blondes and making sure that even though I make her take my naturally brown hair to WHITE WHITE BLONDE every time, she nails it and my hair remains healthy, growing & glowing!!
What I love about this babe and her space is:
1. It's a Sustainable Beauty Collective - meaning, Meleesa implements Eco-Friendly techniques into her Salon practice as well as utilizes the best quality / Earth-friendly products, dyes, etc.
2. The Vibes are epic - crystals everywhere. Every time I go in it feels like my time to just RELAX. I've put her Salon in Huntington Beach on my Insta Stories a few times as well as the space she creates out of in LA! So vital to be in a calming space, sometimes getting my hair done is my one moment of CHILL. lol
3. Meleesa being a Gemini is funny, wise and amazing to talk to.
Hair Routine x Products:
1. Meleesa suggested I use Vegan, Earth Friendly Line: Neuma !
I have issues often times with my hair being REALLY dry, kind of like a wild horse mane. I started using Neuma thanks to Meleesa & their deep hydrating blends x Violet Blonde Shampoo Treatment.
More Info on Meleesa & her Salon Here: https://www.meleesathesalon.com/
3. I'm not huge on getting creative with makeup, but after finding my babe Nikki DeRoest I get majorly creative while keeping it NATURAL
How magical is life? I really believe that we are brought everything & everyone we truly need at the perfect moment... no questions asked!
Nikki (a fellow Aries;) and I met at our gym bonding over wearing the exact same sports bra (another s/o Year of Ours), she looked like a Boss but was so kind and warm we became almost instant friends.
I started following Nikki only to figure out she is a GENIUS with makeup, styling & all things BEAUTY. Her Instagram is not only inspiring (with her amazing take on beauty hacks x her remarkable humor) but also incredibly informative. Her Instagram Stories will teach you ways and means to get creative with your beauty routine & feel beautiful from the inside out.
I love makeup because #colors, but, I never seem to know what to do with everything available on the market. Grateful I found Nik and can get inspired (and entertained:) by her on the daily.
My Makeup Routine: (Inspired by Nikki)
1. Clean, fresh skin!! (See my Glow Skin Hacks below...) - Nikki encourages healthy, glowing skin which we both agree on is an inside & outside job.
2. Glossier Boy Brow - to complete my mega brows by Angelina (lolz), I am obsessed with Glossier Boy Brow. Nikki has a few suggestions as well as a post on Growing your Brows on her Instagram (as of today!!)
3. Lancome Cils Booster XL - Lash Primer - this stuff is INSANE. In my opinion, it will make any mascara work like magic. Definitely worth a try.
4. Mascara - your choice. I use like 20 different ones & don't keep track!
5. A beautiful light eyeshadow, keep it natural! I actually stopped wearing liquid liner after following Nikki's posts - I love the look of brightening the eye & getting creative with a color & sparkles.
6. THE BEST LIP MOISTURIZER IN THE WORLD - Just literally.. you're welcome. I am not big on lipstick but I absolutely MUST have my lips moisturized or I don't feel right! Buy this right nowwww!: Emu Oil Lip Balm ($7)
Follow Nikki & check out her site:
4. Glowing Skin Hacks: My Bliss Skincare Routine x Healthy Diet & WATER.
I've talked about this before but I read Tarot for Bliss a few months back for their big re-launch event & was re-introduced to their products after always being obsessed with the Lemon Sage Bodywash that was once the trademark smell of The Standard Hotel.
I keep my skin routine incredibly simple & natural, and because my skin is so sensitive, I am really careful about what I use.
From their Makeup Melter Skin Cleanser, Micro Magic Exfoliating Scrub (I use this only 2-3x a week), INCREDIBLE Face Masks (I do 1x a week) & the Ex-glow-sion Moisturizer (that is somehow only $20) my skin has literally never been better. I attribute this to not only great products, but plenty of water, self-love, self-care & a diet of clean, organic foods & healthy fats, that say I LOVE YOU SELF. Our skin is our BIGGEST organ, which is such a trip to think about, it literally reflects back to us how we are treating it almost instantly.
Anyways, also back to the products! I suggest perusing their site and seeing what speaks to you!
My Skin Glow Routine:
1. Bliss Products listed above.
And thanks to my Aesthetician the incredible, Mia Belle Skin who I posted to my stories a few months back, who suggested that I only wash my face once in the evening or after a workout - this has changed my skin in a totally new way and all the extra oil and shine I had completely diminished.
2. Plenty of Sleep, Fresh Water (you will pee a lot which is a good sign!) & Meditation.
3. Bone Broth, Healthy Fats & Clean Organic Eating on the Daily!
Everyone has to find what works for them in terms of eating & nourishment. I've found what works for me and it reflects in the health of my skin, Menstrual cycle and overall vitality. If you are struggling with your skin or unsure which diet choices are best for you, I suggest finding a Holistic Nutritionist that you trust to help unravel the mystery with you. It's a journey worth embarking upon and one that I have been refining & exploring since I was about 18 years old!
5. Final Beauty Hack: Self Acceptance
Perhaps not what one would expect on a post on all things beauty hacking, but, being that I am a Spiritual Gal I feel this one is definitely worth touching on. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, it truly freaking is. As someone who has delt with MANY issues around accepting my unique beauty, body and all of the things, I note this as my final beauty hack because, beauty really does resonate from the inside out. Have you ever met someone who although was not the cultural definition of what is "perfect" or "beautiful" - you found them incredibly attractive & sexy? This is because true beauty, resonates from the Soul. And especially from a soul at peace. Some people are considered the cultural standard of beauty but, they don't have that spark in their eyes that only can originate from One who knows & respects themselves on a deep, deep level.
So, have fun with this post, I definitely recommend you check out the babes & services I've suggested, but if you take nothing more from this simply remember to accept yourself.
Look yourself in the mirror and say I LOVE YOU, YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL, I ACCEPT YOU.
Watch your life change.

My interview with Amber Lee-Lyons (@thechakragirlco) was honestly a little too much fun - we talked about mystical sh*t & she made me laugh way too much. It is such a big breath of fresh air to get to express myself freely & be received by such a wonderful woman / girl boss.
