Declutter Your Relationships & Social Network!

Declutter Your Relationships & Social Network!

One of the hardest things in life is letting go and that’s never easy, but it’s a vital step toward living a happy and prosperous life!

Relationships are like bank accounts. If you allow people in your life to make more emotional withdrawals than deposits, you will soon find yourself with negative equity. You need to know when it’s time to close the account!

The fact is there are certain people in our lives that just aren’t good for us. This includes family members, friends, neighbors, co-workers and so on. We all know the types: people who drain our energy; people who make us feel bad when we hang out with them; people who criticize us simply because we think and operate outside of their comfort zone; people who quietly (but clearly) judge us simply for who we are or what we do; or the people who just plain turn any situation to their advantage by taking the victim role.

Love Yourself and Let Go of anyone holding you back from living a happy and prosperous life! No explanation nor justification necessary. Just let go!

Promote Love & Sensuality in Your Life!

Your Valentine's Day Gift to Yourself! 

Make your bedroom clutter-free, serene and romantic to promote peaceful rest, enhanced love life and happy Relationships!

1.       Declutter your bedroom. Keep what’s essential and let go of any items that have no relevance to Serenity and Romance.
2.      Remove pictures, objects and art forms (from the past and present) that do not represent, invite, promote or attract Love, Unity and Sensuality.
3.      Keep work-related items such as electronics devices, bookshelves and work desk out of your bedroom. 
4.     Declutter your closets and donate items you haven't worn in six months to a year. 
5.      Bring tranquility into your bedroom by choosing calming colors such as light blue or soft lavender.
6.     Invest in high quality bedding with a solid pattern and soft, nourishing texture.
7.      Add light fragrant candles or essential-oil diffuser in your bedroom. The scent of Lavender induces relaxation. Rose and Jasmine scents promote Sensuality, Love and Romance.
8.     Promote Love and Sensuality in your life by adding books such as The Goddess' Guide to Love, the Art of Sensual Aromatherapy (or other love related books of your own liking) to your nightstands.

The goal is to invite serenity, love and sensuality into your life. Whether you are single or in a relationship shouldn’t matter!

Most of All, Be Awesome and Love Yourself Without Limits!
