Think you can't visualize? Not true. When you crave something—say chocolate—you strongly sense chocolate in your mind. Perhaps you sense it through taste, texture, or appearance…even when that chocolate isn't anywhere in sight. Here Tess Whitehurst, author of several books and the new Holistic Energy Magic, explains visualization and provides four easy exercises to help us visualize.

by Llewellyn

1. Your new book, Holistic Energy Magic, is your sixth book in five years (not counting your contributions to Llewellyn's almanacs and datebooks as well as your forthcoming Magic of Flowers Oracle).  From where do you draw your inspiration?

Tess Whitehurst

Everywhere. I am endlessly fascinated with transforming challenges into blessings and living more and more bravely, joyfully, and expansively. Plus, for as long as I can remember I have been obsessed with words, reading them and writing them. So authoring books is really a natural expression of what I would be doing anyway. I also love it because it helps me organize my thoughts, and then—through my books—to connect with others who have a similar perspective and value the same things I do.

2. You have a strong focus on feng shui in most of your books, as well as removing clutter from our lives. Why do you feel these are so important?

I honestly believe that if there is physical clutter anywhere in your life—home, work, vehicle, storage space, or anywhere else—there is no better way you could possibly be spending your time than by clearing it. I also believe that clearing clutter is quite possibly the most powerful action one can take when it comes to getting into a momentum where we are living happily and manifesting any kind of success. I know these are bold statements, and I am not making them lightly! Our inner and outer worlds really are connected and really do affect each other, as anyone who has ever felt the exhilaration of a freshly organized closet or desk can certainly attest. And when we start our clearing, organizing, and harmonizing in the physical realm, the mental/spiritual/emotional part of us can't possibly help but follow suit. On the other hand, if we approach our spiritual work with a bunch of clutter in our space, or a lack of joy in our surroundings, our capacity for experiencing blessings and success of all varieties will be considerably hampered. Particularly when we want to manifest positive life conditions, getting the old stagnant stuff out is an absolutely vital prerequisite to allowing the stuff we truly desire to flow abundantly in. Of course, it's an ongoing process, so the goal is not perfection but rather a commitment to showing up again and again, and clearing what needs to be cleared.

3. Holistic Energy Magic truly does provide a holistic approach to living a magical life—incorporating everything from angels to visualization. Is incorporating so many elements an easy thing to do?

5 Simple and Instant Creativity Boosts
by Melissa Harris

Perhaps you don't consider yourself creative. But, we are all creative: our creativity simply emerges in different ways. Consider the imagination one employs to make intelligent financial decisions, or how one can come up with yummy and inexpensive recipes with healthy ingredients. We call upon our creative selves many times in the course of a day, but some of us don't count these acts as imaginative. Melissa Harris, author of the new 99 Keys to a Creative Life, has provided the following ways to support your creative urges. If you don't think you are creative, or if you are feeling creatively blocked, these five simple suggestions will help you push through.
