The Power of Intention

I was sitting at home last night and hit my DVR list.  I skipped through all the cooking and Downton Abby episodes and found myself scrolling to my “Super Soul Sunday” episodes that I hadn’t watched yet. I obviously needed a little spiritual pick me up.   Well, the episode I was drawn to was an older interview with Oprah and Gary Zukav, the author of The Seat of the Soul.  This segment is such a good reminder of how intention effects EVERYTHING you do.  That is, if you have the intention of living a life lead by your soul all the energy around you will support that as long as you continue to conciously intend that.  I hope this video serves as a reminder to you too of the power behind your own intentions.  Happy watching.

Mark Twain’s abode

I have walked down 10th St. between 5th and 6th Ave. in the West Village at least twice a week for the last two years en route to Elizabeth Bauer Design.  As much as I think I pay attention to things, apparenlty I don’t.   On my walk yesterday (on my last day at the shop), I looked up to find a plaque I never noticed on one of the row house fronts that says, “In this house once lived, Mark Twain”  Damn, I love New York.  It doesnt matter how long you have lived here,  there is always something new to discover.  Always.

Mayabags and more at the Indagare Souk

Picture from Manhattan Luxury Magazine

Everything is a whirlwind these days and two weeks ago during that whirlwind I was representing Mayabags at the Indagare Souk which took place at the Hotel Athenee here in NY.  I posted about Mayabags around Christmas time last year because I love, love them.  They are handwoven products created by the impoverished Maya women in Belize and in a nutshell the jobs created by these bags lifts them out of poverty (providing them with income to educate their children).   Manhattan Luxury Magazine was at the Souk taking pictures for their mag. (pic above).  I met some wonderful people, one being Anne Wells who founded and runs, Unite the World With Africa. She is a fabulous lady, doing exceptional things and you should take a look at their site as well. Whether you find something you would like to buy at MayaBags or Unite the World With Africa you will be spreading positive energy from all the good that comes from the sales of these items.  Now, that really is happy shopping:)

Full Moon Dates – expect a little bit of crazy

I woke up on Tues. and people were a little bit all over the place and I said to a woman I was speaking with, “Is it a full moon today because I don’t know about you, but don’t people seem a little bit crazy today?”  She whole heartedly agreed and then looked it up.  It was in fact a full moon the next day.  My sister who works with kids called saying the same thing.  She had a really rough day at the school she works at because the kids were major drama that day.  I replied telling her about the full moon. I then  suggested she mark all full moons on her calendar so she is prepared to most likely have issues arise with kids on those days.  Come on, we all know the moon moves the ocean tides so it can certainly effect people.   For those who think there might actually be a correlation, here are the dates:
