Conscious Lifestyles ~ Live Happy, Healthy, and Fun

What Do We Do Once We’re “THERE”?

We Live a Lit Up, Conscious Lifestyle

For years I've helped people all over the world awaken to a new reality in which they stop seeking, and begin to actually live the life they used to hope for, dream of, and work hard for. When the working on ourselves ends, and a natural, flowing evolution begins, you might ask yourself, “What is my life about now?”

Now You Can Enjoy Life!

Maybe life used to be about seeking, hoping to one day have that great life. Now you have it!

More and more of you are free, prosperous, and having fun, or well on your way.... so now what? Once you don't need to seek anymore, and life isn't about the next seminar or meditation meeting, you're free to go play, create, expand, and contribute your joy to the world.

You'll still want to come here for "input" that supports your new reality, and resonates with your new consciousness. You wouldn't want to lower your vibration with too much TV, social media, or "bad news".

So we added a Lifestyle section to the site, where we share a few ideas for full-out living, fun things to do, and creating to our heart’s desires. There’ll be resources, links, and ideas for conscious living and enjoyment, but there's one thing it won't include -- there will be no "working on yourself".

Treat yourself - When you are too austere in your diet, and take the joy of eating, you just fall off the wagon and over-indulge.

Make a Difference - Once you're there you can uplift others. Here are some organizations you can contribute to who use it wisely.

God talking to you:

My friend Penny inspired me to try container gardening – it was easy – and you can do it even on an apartment balcony. At City View Ranch I tried it and grew lettuce, spinach, radishes, and sprouts on the front porch. 

Then with confidence bolstered by the success at container gardening, when I lived in Texas I planted a six by eight foot raised bed, bordered by pavers, with buried soaker hoses in the piled up rows, and mulch between the rows to start. No maintenance, maximum yield, and minimal water use.

It was amazingly easy and fast to start with bags of organic garden soil from the home improvement warehouse. Four days later radish and okra sprouts are up! I found it needed a shade cloth in hot sun. Wow! There’s nothing more grounding and balancing than getting your hands in the dirt.

After moving to California, I got into growing flowering plants, bushes, roses, and tropical palms just for the beauty of it.

PEST CONTROL SANS CHEMICALS: A 50-pound bag of food-grade diatomaceous earth has just about eliminated all the fire ants, scorpions, fleas, carpenter ants, and even the internal parasites in our animals and ourselves, without pesticides and chemicals. (If you lay down a bed of it before you pour a house foundation, you'll never have termites.) It's tiny skeletons of microscopic creatures, and it's already millions of years old, so it doesn't degrade.

We use it indoors for ants. It's cheap in large bags at progressive garden stores, about $26/50 lb. but expensive in small bags on the internet. Read the cautions.

“Living on ten acres for ten years reminded me that food grows in dirt, not grocery stores; and water just falls from the sky.” Lola

Our home and property is a work of art, expressing ourselves

home as a work of art

Your home is an expression of you

We search flea markets for unique and wonderful items that express how we feel. We like rooms that are comfortable above all. Places you can relax and enjoy.

scott's pool

Scott built us a pool and landscaped it himself

Scott spends most of his time outdoors, and has planted 20 palm trees and probably 200 other plants. There's a blog showing the construction from start to finish, although he never stops landscaping it!

Recently I saw him outside saying, "I love you, I love you, I love you...." I asked what he was doing, and he was communing with the land, letting it guide him as to what to create next. You and I also call it raving.

We like wild and natural-looking beds of flowers that come back year after year, of all colors and types. All year long there are always plenty of colorful flowers blooming here. Gardening is a great balance for sitting at the computer as much as I do, and it's great exercise, too. I like hauling and arranging rocks like the border of this bed.

Scott often says, "I've created Lola Land here, inspired by who you are." 

Our environment inspires us

The light is so good in the living area due to the huge windows, it became my studio. I'll finish a painting and hang it up on the wall!

Scott likes to play his guitar in there in front of a blazing fireplace.

Scott was in construction. A Tibetan monk once lived with him for a year, on the monk's year of world travel. Scott taught him about the world, and the monk taught Scott to meditate.

The colors, the light, the soft textures invite us to sit and meditate, or create something.
