Happy Halloween! I may have more than my share of Halloween decor, but if you haven't noticed I love all of the holidays, especially decorating for each one. And some holiday decor is so special, that I love to feature it in little video clips like the one above here with my Spirits of New Orleans and Ghosthunting North Carolina books. The projector in this video is from Grandin Road.
Thank you to everyone who has been posting such wonderful comments on my Facebook and Instagram pages about my Intuitive Interior Decor posts, I appreciate hearing from you so much!
You've asked for more photos, so here I go, I'll share even more Halloween decor photos here and of course, go look at my Easy Wows Halloween Decor post to see even more.
Let's go, up first, I have to share this darling bracelet. While it's jewelry and not home decor, I love charm bracelets and wear this one through most of October. It's also inspired me to find large ornaments that are similar to these charms, as I'd...
It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year! Fall is here, give a cheer, oh yes, that's me, I wait all year long for my favorite months, which are October through December.
I'm one of those people who throw a party just to toast to Fall making a grand appearance. While some are belaboring the end of Summer, I'm unpacking my sweaters and getting ready for crisp cool nights, hot chocolate with whipped cream, pumpkin spice everything and the turning of the leaves, oh the leaves.
Maybe it's the Celtic blood running through my veins that loves how the seasons turn. I'm happiest when I live somewhere that has four true seasons. Each season brings its own magic and rituals to connect with the energy and I love and appreciate each one, but Fall, it's my favorite season. We all have favorites and now you know mine.
This time of year I'm out and about traveling and teaching and usually on book tour, doing signings at Barnes and Noble's, like this one and I'm decorating for Halloween....
Basically, it's a hidden space in your home that can't easily be detected when walking into a room. In the grand old mansions of the past, these rooms were designed and built into the homes by the architects. Many were elaborate with hidden hallways built into the walls that allowed the homeowners to move through these areas without being detected in the public rooms of the home. Hidden panels were part of the design, often with the pulls connected to a decorative item on a fireplace or on a specific book on the bookcase in the library that would be pulled out in order to open the doorway and allow access to enter the hidden room or passageway.
I've always loved this design and growing up I would watch the old black and white movies that would show these homes where people would appear out of nowhere or escape down into the secret laboratory tucked away. Whether it's the wardrobe door in Chronicles of Narnia, the platform 9 3/4 in Harry...
In today's homes, you'll find many lighting sources made from Alabaster. While not all are aware of the metaphysical properties of this stone, it's easy to see how it makes for a gorgeous light source in home and commercial property decor.
The metaphysical properties of this stone attract positive energy. You can also ask the stone to help release negative energy away from you and your home.
Alabaster is a good stone to "touch". It's very soft and smooth and it can "carry" your worries and concerns away, removing them from your aura.
In my Master Bedroom, I have these gorgeous alabaster lamps on each side of the bed. The manufacturer really understood how to work with this stone. The lamp has a second bulb embedded into the stone, lighting it from within. This detail creates the symbolic master teaching from the ancient wisdom temples of "As Above, So Below", As Within, So Without".
This is an incredible energy to create in...
Today's question is:
Thank you so much for sharing your kind thoughts about my interview on the Edgar Cayce podcast! I really enjoyed presenting at the Edgar Cayce ARE Conference (Oct 10-13, 2019) entitled: Unearthing the Hidden and Forbidden Histories of the Ancient Past. Hundreds of people attend this conference every year and it was wonderful to meet so many of you!
One of the easiest ways to decorate for Fall, is to gather all of your fall decor together and concentrate it in one area to create a stunning display.
Too often when decorating, people feel the need to spread holiday decor all around the house, making sure everything everywhere gets a bit of Christmas or a bit of well, any holiday. While this does indeed show a sampling of the decor everywhere you look, it might not give the desired effect that you were hoping to create.
Decor items, like collections, are best viewed when grouped together so that the feeling and expression can be experienced and enjoyed. Think of it like a Thanksgiving dinner or buffet. Imagine coming to Thanksgiving and seeing the beautiful table covered with all of your favorite foods, the turkey, the stuffing, cranberries, mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, squash, green beans, rolls, the list goes on, but you get the picture right? It's a feast for the eyes and the appetite!
Now imagine instead if you walked into...

When decorating for Fall, I've always loved decorating the fireplace the most!
The mantel is such a perfect place to display the brilliant colors of the season with brightly colored garlands of leaves, adding ribbon to the mix along with pine cones, acorns, nuts and berries.
It reflects the season, the gorgeous turning of the leaves and brings the look and feel of nature inside. This is especially important to do when living in a place where the natural look of Fall is not immediately apparent outside, due to lack of trees in the city or when living in an area that doesn't reflect the four seasons, such as a sub-tropical environment. The brilliant use of color with the oranges, reds and yellows help welcome us into the mood of the season.
Here's a picture from my library many years ago when I created a Fall scape like this on my fireplace mantel. I had a gorgeous fireplace in this home and it was a joy to decorate it.
Fireplaces are one of the most gorgeous accents one can...
This question delves into sex talk. Fair warning, we talk about sex here, so if that's not a topic you'd like to read, please move on to the next post.:)
Today's question from Ask Kala comes from JM , who writes:
"Hi Kala, thanks for the opportunity to ask a question for ASK KALA -I’d love to hear your insights about what takes place to the aura and energetically when a woman goes through menopause; specifically what are “hot flashes” from an energetic view? They do feel like a sort of cleansing energy and seem to be totally misunderstood in the mainstream. Thanks! JM"
I'm really excited to talk about this topic, as I've always thought that a lot more information should be shared about the stages that a woman goes through in her life that are connected to her fertility cycle. In some cultures, the stages are described in three parts as Maiden, Mother and Wise Woman, which in today's world we might explain in three parts as: a female...
