On a recent walk I found a bird’s nest that had fallen out of a tree.

As it was lying abandoned on the ground, I decided to pick it up and carry it with me the rest of the way, carefully examining its construction and gently placing it on the ground in my back garden when I returned home.

Your environment is the most powerful factor to determine your health.

Why is this the case?

You spend an average of eight hours a day in your bedroom.

If it is cluttered, dusty, moldy or filled with electronic gadgets that disrupt your natural body rhythms, you will feel unwell the rest of the day as a result of your body’s reactions to where you have been sleeping.

If you both live and work out of your home, as I do, the organization, cleanliness and beauty of your home is even more important.

I have spent a lot of time recently contemplating my own nest as I am in the process of moving to a new home in Trinity, Florida.

The average Eastern bluebird can spend two to six days just building a nest.

The average robin, who also spends two to six days to build a nest, may build 20 to 30 nests in their lifetime!

I have spent 17 years renovating my house and garden in Atlanta and in recent months I have spent weeks packing boxes, cleaning and unpacking.

At the present time, half my belongings are in Florida and the other half are in my home in Atlanta.

I have spent more time living at 1951 Northside Drive in Atlanta – 17 years – than I have living in any other home throughout my lifetime.

The more time we spend in a place, the more we resonate with the vibration of that environment.

Our home begins to reflect who we really are, and at the same time, our energy literally permeates our environment.

A trained energy worker, medical intuitive healer such as myself or Feng shui master can read your life by reading your home.

My garden in Atlanta uplifts my soul.

When I go down to Florida, I am making peace with the agapanthus and hibiscus and learning about the new flowers in my garden there.

I search about the Trinity house and imagine where I can best raise the orchids that have bloomed so beautifully in my healing studio in Atlanta.

I packed up my crystals and moved them first thing, as rocks hold energy in place better than anything.

Moving from one nest to a new one is a growth opportunity filled with emotions.

“Sometimes you just gotta be drop-kicked out of the nest,” Robert Downey Jr. once said.

I am slowly but surely extracting myself from my Atlanta nest and creating a new nest in Trinity, Florida.

Neale Donald Walsch put it more bluntly. “Life begins at the end of your comfort zone,” he said.

The new home in Trinity is quiet, peaceful and overlooking a golf course where my fiancé Ken Holmes and I watch deer roam every evening.

I have said a prayer in every room of the new house to clear the energy:

Heavenly Father, I call on the forces of nature to converge to balance all detrimental energies and increase all beneficial energies in this space for the benefit of all living beings. I ask that this be done in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.

It takes energy to clear energy.

The new home feels fresh and inviting and still my heart sometimes longs to remain in my nest in Atlanta, where I can lay in my hammock on my porch and write on my laptop for hours, staring up at the sky and watching the hawks.

I pray a new owner will come along who loves the Atlanta house as much as I do!
