Ms. Emily Fletcher on Meditation
One of my guests on this episode is Ms. Emily Fletcher, the founder of Ziva Meditation. She was featured in The NY Times and named top 100 women in wellness to watch by Mindbodygreen. She was on Broadway for 10 years, but her life was stressful. It was all about the next show and the next agent. Then she found meditation and her life forever changed. She became more passionate about it than Broadway. Meditation has helped with her performance, insomnia, and reducing the frequency of illness. She was so passionate that she trained to become a teacher and founded Ziva. In this episode, Ms. Fletcher and I discuss how stress can impact your body and the memory in your body. We also talk about how mindfulness meditation can impact your life.
Ms. Ivy Ellerby on Emotional and Physical Clutter
My other guest today is Ms. Ivy Ellerby, the author of the Spiritual Feng Shui for Mind Body and Spirit. Ms. Ellerby is a feng shui expert. She basically goes into people’s homes giving recommendations on how to manage energy there. She can help with clutter. All kinds of physical clutter: the junk drawer, the room that you prefer to hide behind closed doors, expired food, and so on. However, energetic clutter is even more important to take care of than physical clutter – and that’s the clutter of the mind. It can be emotional, mental, or spiritual clutter. Deadlines, uncleaned inboxes, one-sided friendships and so on can all lead to emotional and mental clutter. Clutter fills up our modern day life without us realizing it. And it can become overwhelming and paralyzing, negatively impacting our health and well-being. In this episode, Ms. Ellergy and I discuss how to create more space in your life and live more clutter-free.
So I invite you to listen to this episode, where you can learn powerful tips on how to create more health and happiness in your life.
To help you live a more serene life, reduce clutter in your home to create a calmer and simpler environment. Simplify your life. Meditate to reduce brain chatter. Go back to nature. Eat good plant-based foods and use natural remedies, like essential oils to improve your well-being.

Ivy was severely injured in multiple head-on collisions stemming from a driver who was texting and driving. It took many months for her to learn to walk again. While her body got stronger, western medicine could not bring her to full recovery. She began an Eastern Medicine approach — acupuncture, energy healers, a regiment of essential oils and flower essences. She integrated Ayurvedic practices and started making real progress in healing not only her body, but her connection to spirit. She eventually became a Feng Shui Consultant.
Ivy’s web series show, Feng Shui It! is the result of her choosing to live her life authentically and with purpose. Each week Ivy explains the principles of Feng Shui in an easy-to-understand manner. She also interviews other working experts who provide the latest in natural approaches to health, sustainable living, creative expression and personal growth. Learn more at fengshui-it.com
