So I’ve been going thru’ a lot of chaos and a lot of unwanted stress at the home front for myself. I think it’s because I don’t have a good sense of time management and try to please everyone but end up not feeling too good about myself. If one cannot feel good about themselves how can one make others or your home feel good right? I thought that since I had been practicing the teaching of Feng Shui every now and then, shouldn’t I have more peace in my life and my surroundings? But nope, if you are stressed up , how can you have a joyful or harmonious lifestyle.
Trying to please people around me seems not to work for me if I cannot clean my surroundings and don’t even have time to shower everyday. So my time management ain’t good, and that has to change first. So instead of allowing my kid to have play dates every other day, she can only do so when I’ve done all my chores and she has done all her homework and piano practices. It may sound harsh but we all have to learn that there is only so much time in a day for us to work, clean and rest.
The condition of your surroundings and your inner self is so important for feng shui and the good energy to come by. A few days ago, when my house smelled like rotten eggs, that stressed me up a whole lot as well and that means that I need to get that clear up and find the source of the rotten eggs, because how can one not be stressed up with a rotten egg smell in the house right? so yes, feng shui also means one has to be logical. And logical means, we have to find time to clean our surroundings and clear our surroundings.
So yes, finding inner peace in feng shui means, I have to say no to my kid from time to time and not think that I am doing her a disfavor and also not worry too much about the spouse and about what he wants to do. If he needs time to do his stuff or play his games, he just have to prioritize.
Christmas isn’t here yet but it’s good for me to start looking for things that the spouse wants now because giving the right Christmas presents to one’s spouse will keep the harmony at home too. Imagine, if I wanted a Louis Vuitton handbag and the spouse bought me a washing machine? So what would happen from Christmas on? One very upset woman, leading to a very unhealthy relationship. You don’t need feng shui to tell you that. So to keep the harmony and the goodwill in the family, it starts from getting the right Christmas present. Mine is pretty easy to order , To place your order, call us toll-free at 800-449-9128 as advertised recently and the spouse pointed it out to me the other day. So folks out there, start the year right by getting the right presents for your spouse this Christmas.
While I always welcome spring because it means more energy, autumn always makes me feel like I’m losing all my energy. Do you ever feel this way or am I the only one? They say that autumn is the time to let go of the past and because of the cold weather and dead leaves around, the air can be quite stagnant, thus making one feel very lethargic.
And even though the weather is going to turn colder and as the winter comes, it is important to keep the entrance of your home and business clean and tidy, so that the good chi can come into your home and business. They also say that autumn is to be celebrated because it is harvest time and a time to be joyous and celebrating. So invite friends and family to celebrate and make merry during autumn and the good chi will stay.
Because it gets darker quickly in the autumn and winter, it is important that you bring in light into the house , so that there is more yang than yin in your home and business.
So a good friend of mine has a health issue with sleeping. He can’t breathe properly when he is sleeping and he asked if he can use feng shui besides his sleep apnea machine to ease his sleeping habits and pattern. Like I tell lots of people Feng shui isn’t magic, sure you can incorporate some stuff to help with the environment but first one has to be logical and practical. So instead, I suggested this CPAP sanitizing machine to help with his sleep apnea. And encouraged him to exercise as well as making sure that the room is clean and always refresh for a nice and peaceful sleeping condition.
People often ask me how they can feng shui their life and make their life a good one. What is a good life ? Some people’s definition of a good life is different from another. What is your definition and how do you reach that goal using feng shui? Can feng shui really help you have a better life ? or is it a better perspective that you need? Are you not happy with your life? what can one do ? Definitely all good questions and those that I’ve asked a long time ago too, so you are not alone.
Positive thinking is a must for anyone who wants a better life for themselves. Starting the day right is very important to anyone, start your day right with getting up early enough to do some stretches and telling yourself the positive things you are going to do for the day and have a leisure enough breakfast.
Clear any clutter at home and at the office as we all know that clutter does not allow the positive energy to enter your room.
Finish up any unfinished work around the house and office, be it a picture that needs hanging or a box of old office papers that need to be stored.
Make time to spend some quiet time with yourself , relaxing and having a cup of tea or coffee.
Light some incense around the home or office to clear away stagnant and bad energy in your home.
Use a cork board or a white board with magnets and hang up happy pictures or places you want to travel to or write down a goal you want to achieve.
Arrange your home/and or office furniture so that it is not obstructing your way. Put some bring color rugs in your room to brighten and lighten your environment.
Hang out with people that have positive energy and lift you up.
At the end of the day, de-stress and do things that will make you sleep well and take a sea salt bath and write down 3 things that you appreciate or accomplished during the day. Sleep early and relax with a glass of wine.
Weddings are such happy occasions, so if and when a couple get all stress up because of decorating the event hall or worrying about flower or make up colors, I tell them that the most important thing about a wedding is being happy. No amount of feng shui can help the couple to start a good life together, if they fret over such a happy occasion.
A couple I know wants a certain kind of tablecloth for their wedding, so I sent them to the burlap tablecloth site where they can get them at a reasonable price. So in every problem there is a solution, no need to fret. Feng Shui isn’t magic but if you ask me, I will certainly help you to get over your anxiety by pointing you to the right direction for anything you may want in a wedding.
I have a friend who is going thru’ some kinda bad luck or something but whatever he is doing or planning to do or do for that matter, nothing seems to come out good in it. So is it really bad luck, someone asked me that can follow you around? sometimes, it does seems that way for all of us doesn’t it?
So how does someone with such bad luck counter react to “this” bad luck and lead a good and fulfilling life and a life that seems to be good luck for others? first of all, while some people think that good luck has to do with good feng shui, I say that there are other factors whereby some people are never lucky and others seems to be enjoying all the good things in life. Good feng shui comes from positive thinking, so the secret recipe for good luck is not only positive thinking but using some common sense.
So if you know of someone who is always having bad luck, it’s not the bad luck that is crowding around her but her actions and way of thinking. Take action, take positive steps to improve your life and the rest will follow.
Friends ask me all the time what kind of musical instruments they should pick up that can enhance their life and good for feng shui. Most people would go for a quieter instruments like the violin and the classical guitar but I say even the gibson explorer can enhance your life and surroundings if you choose to use it to do just that.
Feng shui is about the balance of ying and yang, so any kind of instruments that you fancy and feel that you are right at home with it, then you are good to go. Loud music might not be for some people but like the spouse, he feels right at peace with rock and roll music and if you ask him to listen to classical music, I don’t think that he can enjoy it much. So yes, choose a instrument that you like and everything will fall in its place if you are worried that it might not be good feng shui, worry no more.
So an acquaintance looked into buying a business to re-open his workplace but little did he know that someone committed suicide in the building. Of course, being Asian, he wasn’t too pleased with his purchase as the building was very expensive. So whose fault is it that he wasn’t made aware of the incident that happened many years ago? The owners? or his?
Whoever the fault may be, now that he is stuck with the building for his future business, he would have no choice but to find a remedy for it. So he asked besides calling the ghost busters what else can he do? Can feng shui help with a “haunted” building?
Feng shui is no magic nor does it practice voodoo but since Feng Shui is about practicing balance, therefore the Yin and Yang can be used to balance the building that the acquaintance bought to help eliminate the dark side of the building since spirits are said to be on the dark side.
So the acquaintance should make sure that the building is bright and more lights are in the building and warmth around the building is encouraged as well. Make sure that the building is clean and fresh air is around the building.
Yes! our oldest gold fish that we’ve had for 1 year 8 mths bellied up yesterday. The kid was upset, it was her pet. So if your feng shui fishes belly up – what do you do? and what does it mean?
