I have become exceptionally aware of how color and scent play a major role in setting up a particular mood or state of mind.
For over 6,000 years, certain plants were worn or sniffed to heal the body, attract love or change one’s state of consciousness. Today, scientific studies have confirmed that aromatherapy oils may energize, calm, rejuvenate, balance, purify and repair the body and mind.
Why does color matter you may ask? Well, colors are certain wavelengths of electromagnetic energy seen through our eyes. Since everything is made up of electromagnetic energy vibrating at different frequencies, color can calm you down or give you that extra zing you need to go out and shine.
As soon as I spray my “Happiness Spray “ in my mother’s room at the care center, she seems to perk up and the staff always comments on how good it smells. And many of you have commented on how nice she looks when she wears turquoise, red or blue. Orange, one of my favorite colors, is the color of happiness. Even prison officials have researched and concluded that inmates are calmer when the walls are painted pink.
Watch today’s video below and you will learn what colors create certain moods so that you will have more tools to move through life happier and more effectively.
Saturday April 22nd is Earth Day: show your love for the earth by planting a garden, making a meal of local veggies, recycling, picking up trash in your local park or blessing the trees. There are also many global meditations happening so check out your local calendar for events in your area.
This is a powerful week in which millions of people around the world celebrate Passover and Easter.
Tonight’s Full Moon is called The Pink Moon (named to describe the appearance of the moss pink or wild ground phlox flowers). Tonight is also the celebration of the Hindu Hanuman festival. People worship Lord Hanuman as a symbol of devotion, magical powers, strength and energy.
My friend Rebecca Gordon of Mypathastrology.com has this to say about tonight’s Full Moon: Today, a powerful Full Moon in Libra brightens the skies, waking up an area of your life that will now need your full attention. This full Moon will also require your courage and healing. Sudden and surprising events may have triggered you this week, events that have asked you to step up and stand for what is your truth, even though this can make you appear vulnerable. For you it may be around love, perhaps finances, boundaries or a conflict at work, or family. Whatever it is, today and this week will be your opportunity to step up to this challenge in a brand new way. As this full Moon wakes up the Uranus & Pluto square, it is very possible that now you can finally lay to rest a struggle of the last 5 years simply by a more conscious approach to this matter. Let the light of this Libra full Moon lead the way. Much love to you!
Watch the video HERE to discover more about these holidays and to learn a powerful ritual that I love to do during this time. I also included a special prayer which I hope you will share with your friends and family.
Create the kind of self that you will be happy to live with all your life.
Make the most of yourself by fanning the tiny, inner sparks of possibility into flames of achievement.

Tonight begins the celebration of Chaitra Navaratri – 9 Nights of the Goddess in the Hindu Religion. It is believed that the Divine Mother descends to the earth in different forms to help us annihilate fear and negativity. She enriches us with the ability to manifest peace, prosperity and wisdom.
I find it interesting that in the Hebrew religion this is the month of Nissan in which the Jewish people were redeemed from Egypt. In preparation for Passover, it is a time to spiritually remove all negativity and limitation from our hearts and minds. We are reminded to look at what we have consciously or unconsciously created or what we allow that keeps us from freedom and new possibilities.
Christians around the world are now in the season of Lent. Lent is a time of repentance, fasting and preparation for the coming of Easter. It is a time of self-examination and reflection.
Whether you celebrate Navaratri, Passover or Easter or are awakening to realize that it’s time to free yourself from limiting beliefs, I recommend you consciously become aware of what holds you back from expressing your true authentic power. This is a time of miracles and it takes faith, trust and willingness to be in the new unfolding. You can do it!
Use this affirmation daily:
Change is manifesting in my life through Divine Grace and Love. As each aspect that needs changing surfaces before me, I easily love it free and forgive myself for my perceived transgression.
So it is.
