Peerless Charm Featured in "Yes! Magazine"

Guys! September was a month, that's for sure. I alluded to the fact that I had a lot to look forward to in September, and one of them, was that I was featured on the cover of a magazine!

I've included some photos below, but you can check out the digital magazine here. I hope you enjoy. Aryana and Tiffany did such a good job!

It's a great time to get grounded, and balance your root chakra, as we head into Fall. To do that...

I think of the solar plexus chakra as your inner fire. It's the spark in your gut that encourages you to "do more." It's your creative center, and your will power.

Citrine's harmonious relationship with your solar plexus, is what makes it perfect for finding your purpose, and bringing abundance into your life.

Let's be serious, sometimes the everyday sucks. You can find so many memes on the internet poking fun about how much "adulting" sucks.

Nothing is going to change the job, but using citrine to find more joy, can change your attitude about that job, and may see an opportunity to change from a different perspective.  What is something that you can do in 5 minutes, that will bring you more joy each morning?
