Workshop: Creating Sacred Space in the Home with Kala Ambrose
Would you like to remove the old energy from your home and restore your home with positive new energy? Join Kala Ambrose as she shares how to revitalize your home and turn it into sacred space. Noted wisdom teacher, author, intuitive, inspirational speaker, and host of the Explore Your Spirit with Kala Radio and TV Show, Kala Ambrose’s teachings are described as discerning, empowering and inspiring.
In these challenging economic times, we’re exploring “stay-cations” and focusing on our home as a retreat from the distractions and turmoil of the outside world. Now more than ever, our home is required to provide a feeling of serenity and comfort.
The focus on interior design to bring harmony between people and their homes has always been valued throughout history. One of the most respected traditions is feng shui. In feng shui, one of the most important cures (a correction to adjust the energy in a space) is to restore order by the removal of clutter and negative energy from the home. This allows positive energy (chi) to circulate fully throughout the room. By removing overwhelming stimuli (clutter) a more peaceful environment is created. Intuitively, many of us perform this act in a ritual we call spring cleaning, but what if that’s only getting half the job done? Is it possible that along with the clutter, that we can also remove the negative energy in our home?
In her books, “9 Life Altering Lessons: Secrets of the Mystery Schools Unveiled and The Awakened Aura: Experiencing the Evolution of Your Energy Body,” Kala Ambrose explains how it is possible to cleanse the “energy” in the home.
“Humanity was created with free will to do in general whatever they please and given a gift they often overlook until it is pointed out to them, which is the power of speech, the power to communicate and to say the word. If we consider the ancient stories of how Earth was created with a Word, what power do you think exists in this form of communication? How important are your words and what do you create with them?”
“Energy does not die, it just changes form. In the same respect, words do not die. Picture your home. Once you have the image of your home in mind, think about what conversations (words) occurred in your home in the past year. The energy in words have a sticky substance to them. They attach themselves to people, places and things, especially in homes, which hold energy as we spend so much time indoors, especially during the fall and winter months. Take a moment and imagine that you are holding a blue light, similar to what is used in crime scenes to detect invisible stains, which cannot be viewed with the naked eye. Shine this blue light on the walls of your home and visualize every word spoken in your home during the past year. All of these words are stuck on the walls of your home, like wallpaper and each of them have energy in them reflecting off of your walls. Ask yourself, what kind of energy has been created in my home?”

This post begins a new direction for The LOVEolution. We like to call it The LOVEolution 2.0.
About a year and a half ago, I moved to the San Francisco Bay area, and I took some time off from The LOVEolution. During that time, our contributing partners were posting lots of great content, and Aaron and I were thinking of ways how we could better serve you, the LOVEolutionaries.
We both felt that The LOVEolution needed more focus. We felt that we needed to redefine what The LOVEolution is and what we’re all about. Here’s what we came up with:
We also realized that love can be a very hard thing to define. We believe that love is a state of being, and it all starts with your ATTITUDE.
We thought long and hard about the attitudes that are required to be a LOVEolutionary, and we wrote a manifesto called 11 LOVEolutionary Attitudes.
Our next step is to explore each of these 11 attitudes in great detail, studying some of the best teachers of our time and practicing the attitudes ourselves on a daily basis.
Over the next several weeks, I will be exploring generosity, in a series called Adventures in Generosity. I will be practicing all kinds of acts of generosity, and then reporting back on what I did and what lessons I learned.
At the same time, Aaron will be starting a series called Love 101, in the hopes of defining what love is, and some specific steps you can take to live the life of a LOVEolutionary.
We would like to ask you to join us in the fun! The LOVEolution has always been about collaboration. If you’d be interested in creating your own adventure by learning about one of these 11 attitudes, practicing the attitude yourself and writing a series about it, please let us know!
I have started a new series “What Is Love?” because to me, that question NEVER gets old. There are always new and modern manifestations and expressions of Love and it is truly a joy to encounter and highlight each of them.
My Love research for this question “What is Love?” yielded hundreds and hundreds of results. I have done my best to break them down into logical topics of organization so that you might be able to explore your most interesting Love niches first.
General Definitions Of Love
This section was more of a collection of general, mainstream and reference based writings on Love. I was excited to see Love in headlines like the Economist and NPR’s blog. Of course, there is also the infamous Wikipedia with its crowd sourced encyclopaedic goodness.
65 Definitions Of Love – Our most popular LOVEolution article ever and a collection on ideas of Love from various people in our LOVEolution network.
Philosophy is super important when it comes to Love in order to really understand the various definitions of Love. Love doesn’t mean the same thing to everyone. Most people assume when you say Love you mean a certain kind (typically romantic Love). The idea here is to expand our view and definition of Love so that we may understand the many meanings of Love and be more precise when we say we Love.
Love in science is absolutely fascinating. There are consistently new discoveries and information being learned partially due to new technology like being able to see brain function previously inaccessible from even our best technology available. The articles in this section explore the internal mechanisms that make Love work in our heart and minds.
Religion and Spirituality in general are consistently discussing such concepts as Love. Love thy neighbor is the Golden Rule in Christianity. Hillel the elder from the Talmud tells us to Love one another and that this is the most important lesson from the sacred Judaic text. Hinduism and Buddhism are known for philosophies supporting all life. Islam also touts loving oneself, each other and God.
At the end of the day no matter what our history, background, faith and tradition, if we’re talking about Love we are part of a Universal consciousness of Unconditional Love. And that is truly a great thing.
There are many Love movements out there and it can be overwhelming to figure out which ones to check out. I’m confident there are many other movements and discussions out there I have omitted, however, these are particularly noteworthy choices exploring Love in interesting, unique and inspiring ways.
The Love list would truly be incomplete without Romantic Love. This is usually what people think you mean when you say “Love”. These articles take a look at the intimate side of Love from the perspective of finding an intimate partner, spouse or other form of Lover.
If you are serious about exploring Love, you will be happy to find lots of free resources out there. I found some substantive PDFs from Spiritual, Scientific and Social perspectives on Love.
The Love That Does Justice by Michael Edwards – The Love That Does Justice by Michael Edwards, free PDF download from his website. Have read through this (376) page before and used this when preparing my TedxRaleigh talk on What Is Love What Is Love? A Conceptual Analysis – A scholarly analysis focusing on Love theories of Plato, St Augustine and Freud. “What Is Love, What Is Sex?” – From Human Relations Media: A teachers guide to teaching adolescents about the challenges of sex vs. Love and provide guidelines for making health decisions. Mind Map On Love – Keith Rice has a mind map on Love, very in-depth but a little hard to read.
As always thanks for reading and feel free to stay a while and take a look around. We’ll be bringing you more Love Media on a daily basis from across the world.
It took me a lot of strength to get up from my chair and walk to my boss’ cubicle. It was just a few steps away but this time it was enough to make up my mind. Several times before I had tried to walk the same hallway and then found myself turning back and convincing myself to stay just a little bit longer.
This time was different. She was talking on the phone so I had to wait for a few minutes. When she hung up I took the seat across from her and told her without hesitation “I quit”.
As soon as I arrived to my office I felt the difference. My boss invited me to help in a project, an innovation project. We had to create an internal campaign for our people to join in this massive international brainstorming. Everyone could join and add as many ideas as possible to build the future of our company. People could vote, comment or even add to ideas from other colleagues. The best idea would win great prizes.
This was not a contest like any other. This was big (international big), and my office had to make sure that everyone was in. We had to make sure that every person knew about this contest and that everyone helped boost our participation level.
After talking to my boss I started thinking about marketing tools, new channels of communication… and the phone rang.
