Create Balance With Meditation

Posted on November 4, 2012

x    Are you craving balance in your life? Because I have a smart tip that’s gonna center you, ground you, and keep you calm and relaxed. A great tool that I like to use, and I like to recommend to my clients, is meditation. And meditation is great because you get to calm yourself and stay focused on your needs and really check in with yourself. I would recommend to my clients, if they’ve never done meditation before, to take 3 minutes and just try to lie down in a quiet area, closing your eyes, and breathing, relaxed and calm, and letting the visual of clouds coming in and letting your thoughts just sit on the clouds and float far away, to where you find yourself just feeling relaxed and calm and balanced. I’m Jennifer Schaefer with FindingYourPower.net and that’s my smart tip on keeping balance and grounding in your life!

Certified Clinical Hypnotherapist Jennifer Schaefer of www.FindingYourPower.net shares a smart tip about using meditation as a tool to create more balance in your life.

Access Your Real Creative Power & Genius

by Andrea Schroeder, ABC Creativity

Posted on September 26, 2011

Hello, I’m Andrea
I am a creative goddess/healer/teacher, artist and all around magic-maker.

I believe that creative magic is what makes the world go round and that creative dreams can save the world.

I have been trained and accredited as a New Thought Healing Practitioner, which I describe as “a guide, mentor and teacher in making positive change, living the life you want to be living and creating dreams come true.” I am also an Artist and Designer with a Bachelor of Applied Arts in Fashion Design and 1/2 of a degree in Interior Design.

I weave the creative and the spiritual together into magic potions to help dreamers bring their dreams to life.

When I’m not working: I sew and knit my own clothes. I art journal. I make amazing paper dolls and cloth dolls. I do holistic interior design. I play with makeup and am usually wearing 6 or 7 different shades of eyeshadows, glimmers and glitters. I am an adventurous traveler and explorer. And I spend quite a bit of time relaxing at the spa.

My mission is to overflow this world with dreams come true. Mine, yours, everyone’s.

And to fulfill my mission:

I teach in-person and online courses about everything to do with creative dreams and bringing them to life. (If you’re new you can start with Creativity 101: Discover, Explore and Express your Creative Genius which is a free course sent to you via email.)

I do one-on-one creative Coaching/Healing/Magic-making sessions.

I create life-changing healing affirmative meditations.

I creative journal.

I make amazing paper dolls.

And I blog about all of it at http://www.abccreativity.com/.

Add Color to Your World

by Nitika Chopra, Your Bella Life

Posted on September 22, 2011

>>About the Founder of Your Bella Life–Nitika Chopra

If you were to ask me what my personal mission statement is my answer would be, “to show people that love is possible in every moment.”  This is a rather large pill to swallow for most people, and for many years of my own life it was something that I, too, struggled with.  After dealing with the turbulence of a debilitating disease for more than a decade of my life, I opened myself up to the expansiveness of happiness, and got busy creatively bringing joy into my life.

My unconventional (and often rocky) journey has taught me that we all deserve happiness, and we deserve it EVERYDAY. We owe it to ourselves to step into the happy, and we each have limitless potential to pass it on—in a big way. How we find happiness doesn’t matter, it just matters that we do. Whether it’s sipping a favorite tea in the morning, laughing like a child, or buying flowers, we need to find that daily dose of happiness and weave it into the fabric of our lives. I believe if we take this time for ourselves happiness will become a habit, rather than an afterthought.

I chose the words “adding color to your world” because this process is meant to be subjective.  To me, it represents a combination of things such as spirit, joy, laughter, love and passion.  For others it can mean any one of those things plus many more.  My intense desire to unite with others and make sure they get their daily dose of love led me to many different career paths over the years including becoming a certified professional Life Coach, being a successful actress and television host, as well as writing the beauty and fashion section for a South-Asian magazine.

I am here to encourage Bella Life readers to discover what it is that brings out the color in their worlds!

The Perfection of Imperfection

by Wendi Knox, OhMyGoddess.com

Posted on September 16, 2011

>>In my past life, I was the only female SVP/Creative Director at one of the biggest
ad agencies in Los Angeles, creating award-winning TV commercials for brands
like Honda and Acura.

It was the kind of big, fat Execu-Woman job I dreamed about in my twenties. But
in my forties, I felt like a prisoner in a gilded cage.

Because I had a husband who was an entrepreneur (French for no health plan)
and a Miracle Baby at home (after 5 years of Infertility Hell), I had to zip up my
True Self and just do my time.

Well, long story short, I lost my job. And began the long, scary journey of
reinventing myself from the inside out.

Since I believe every struggle comes with a gift, this finally gave me a chance to
follow a dream that had been living in my heart for over twenty years.

It’s called Oh My Goddess.

Using my perfectly imperfect paintings and divine musings and schmoozings, I’m
literally using my struggles to create gifts for other women:

A series of inspirational videos called Oh My Goddess TeaV.
The Oh My Goddess Bloggess. Oh my Goddess greeting cards, Oh My
Goddess Tea Parties. And a book called Oh My Goddess: Unzipping Your Inner


I’m on a mission to spread joy, feed souls and inspire other women to “divine self
be true.”

I hope you’ll join me at:
