laura cerrano: Motivational Monday: Stop The Looping Cycles - 08/24/15 07:25 AM
 Stop The Looping Cycles 
We all do this consciously or sub-consciously in different segments of our lives. Looping situations that include people or events which create a feeling of unhappiness. Much of this comes down to a series of choices we have agreed to time after time. To break this cycle, try creating a new vision or point of reference on what you are experiencing. Intimate relationships are a common example of this. If you date people who are not adding value to your life, take a look in the mirror and ask, do I value myself? Am I taking care of myself? etc.. Any type of change starts with … (9 comments)

laura cerrano: Can I Pass Along A Space Clearing Blessing You Did For My Home To A Friend? - 08/19/15 07:14 AM
Can I Pass Along A Space Clearing Blessing You Did For My Home To A Friend?
 
This is a great question. Because every consultation is unique for each person, followed by specific intentions he or she hold within to transform their home, energy and life, the manifestation process is different, which means the intention for each blessing holds a customized vibration. 
There is also a process in how the blessing ceremonies are exchanged between the Feng Shui Expert and client. This is known as the, Red Envelop Tradition. 
 
This tradition honors: 
The focus of intention, appreciation and respect for the sacred knowledge shared The protection of the consultant from harm or inappropriately or indirectly revealing secret information Strengthening and increases the energy of information shared  Acknowledges the integrity of the collaboration between client … (0 comments)

3 Simple Tips To Help Detect Good Feng Shui In Your Home
 
Pathway to Front door and Walking Inside (two tips in one paragraph)
Great Feng Shui inspired walkways leading to your front door are created in a meandering design. This relates to the energy flow of a gentle stream bringing momentum to your home and life. Create a welcoming front entrance that is light in appearance (let that be with accent colors, artwork or even naturally filtering light), open and breathable.
Re-fresh the Energy (3rd tip)
You know what I am going to say, the media buzz work,...de clutter! This is foundational, yet extremely effective. Let go of any items you do not need, use or love and … (11 comments)

laura cerrano: Being Adopted Never Ends Well... - 08/13/15 05:56 AM
Being Adopted Never Ends Well...
Is this true? If you are adopted that life is horrible, that you are completely and utterly lost because you were not born into a biological family? 
 
 If that is the perspective you hold, I send prayers of compassion to you.
 
Of course you will have your challenging times, growing pains and typical questions of, who am I?  It's part of the process of life. 
From my own personal experience, being adopted is a blessing. You begin life on such an amazing level of adventure and discovery. At 8 months I already began my international traveling experience, flying from Colombia to New York. I am blessed with … (12 comments)

laura cerrano: Take A Closer Look - 08/10/15 05:42 PM
Take A Closer Look
The word "clutter" was adopted by various media and publication outlets after being introduced to its concepts by Feng Shui. Many may think of hoarding when they hear the word clutter or hold the envisioning of, I just need to get organized. Clutter goes beyond the physical presentation of the space. Scientific studies are showing it also relates to our emotions and psychological mindset. 
 
 
I wanted to introduce you to another possible insight. Sometimes, you may enter into a home and at first glance it seems and feels "cluttered," but before making assumptions or judging what you see, take … (8 comments)

laura cerrano: Where Do I Place My Garbage Can According To Feng Shui? - 08/05/15 08:50 AM
Where Do I Place My Garbage Can According To Feng Shui?
 
If you have the option of concealing your garbage can try that suggestion.   You could place it under the sink or off to the side of the room it has been placed in so when walking into that given space it's not the first item you see. 
Naturally keep your garbage cans clean. Smell can also impact the energy and being practical, no one deserves to walk into a smelly house or office. 
What if you cannot conceal or move the garbage can? Then you have to become a bit creative with the style … (10 comments)

Creative Way To Transform The Meaning Of Shoes By The Front Door In Feng Shui
In Feng Shui it is commonly known that by having an abundance of shoes by your front door, this is a metaphor for attracting events or even people into your life they may try to take advantage of you. While in Talkeetna, Alaska I came across a playful way in how you could remedy old pairs of shoes they you may not longer need if you were not going to donate them.
This shop owner had various old hiking boots and turned them into planters. Creative, fun, colorful and balances out the … (3 comments)

laura cerrano: What I learned From Alaskan Native Knowledge, Heritage and Tradition - 08/03/15 05:26 AM
What I learned From Alaskan Native Knowledge, Heritage and Tradition
During our visit to Alaska, we also made sure to visit two key educational location, The Anchorage Museum and The Alaskan Native Heritage Center. Both offer unique learning experiences and amazing displays of authentic clothing, traditions, dance and more. The Anchorage Museum is connected to the Washington D.C. Smithsonian National Museum of the American Indian, which is also exhibits an amazing collection. 
To start off, we learned at the Heritage Center, Alaskan Natives shared they do not refer to themselves as "Indian or " Native." That was the name the Russians projected onto them. Alaska was and still is settled by the Athabascan, Unangax & Alutiiq … (2 comments)

laura cerrano: Kayaking Alaska in Seaward - 08/02/15 06:24 PM
Kayaking Alaska in Seaward
We explored Alaska by so many means of transportation. Hiking, biking, driving, bus tours, flying and now kayaking. All the methods had unique experiences to offer. This was a tandem ocean kayak (which you can save a little bit if you share). And in fact I may even suggest you work as a team, as the current is strong and having two paddlers is less tiresome than one. 
This kayaking adventure blended ocean kayaking with a short hike. Be sure to bring snacks, water and fluids that offer electrolytes as you will eat up some energy; especially paddling against the current. We did spot a lot of jumping salmon and one sea otter.
There … (11 comments)

laura cerrano: Fun Fact About Alaska - 07/25/15 12:21 PM
Fun Fact About Alaska 
Anchorage Alaska enjoys a more modest amount of daylight in summer, a good 19 hours between sunrise and sunset on the longest day of the year, Summer Solstice. After enjoying a Kayaking adventure in Seaward, AK, we drove back to Anchorage; about a 3 hour drive. Looking at the clock it was about 1:00am, which is also known as Civil Twilight hours. This simply saying, it really never becomes fully dark to see the stars. You will have a hovering of horizon light. The month this photo was take in, is July.
