So a long time friend was having chinese new year’s dinner with us yesterday and asked about some good instrument that she can get for her youngest because, she wanted him to bring out some good feng shui music in the house. In which my reply to her was that any instrument/s is good , it all depends on what the kid liked. So when she told me , he loves the guitar, I suggested the 3 4 acoustic guitar for beginners. And also recommended that she sends her kid to a classical music teacher, now that would be pleasing to her ears.
A harmonious home is a happy home according to my late grandparents. So to create a happy home it’s pretty obvious don’t you think? well, maybe not to some people , so here I will explain some simple ways and steps to make your home and you a happy one.
To have a harmonious home is to be supportive and to love the people in your family. Of course, it’s great when you are healthy as well but how do one love and support your family members? by creating a happy environment and happy images and things surrounding you. Some happy images around the home is a good way to start and again, keeping your home decluttered is another. Opt for a healthy home, eat healthy , live healthy and remember do away with harsh chemicals in the home.
Someone just asked me if having your Front door opening outwards is bad for feng shui? Good question ! I’ve asked about this many times because our store’s front door needed to be opened outwards for safety reasons.
Well, I asked someone who is much more better than I in feng shui and he told me that it is not really that idea if your home or business’s front door opens outwards but that doesn’t mean that your whole feng shui is bad. You can still have great feng shui for your home and business by following some simple steps.
Firstly, make sure that the path leading to your doors are not cluttered. Make sure that the good chi can come into your doors.
Secondly, make sure that you create a strong front door, no garbage cans or dead plants, good lighting , good door.
And lastly, create strong feng shui energy towards your home or business.
There you have it – good luck !
Friends of mine love wearing these masonic rings and wonder if they have any contradiction to what feng shui believes. So I told them that I don’t think so because all masonic rings are meant for some fraternity or organization and that could only mean that it is a good symbol of strength if anything. So for those who are wondering if wearing these masonic rings are good for your feng shui, I say wear away.
Happy New Year everyone ! sorry , I’ve been really busy at the beginning of the year and mostly it’s because of the spouse’s business. I don’t know about you but 2014 had been a really good year for me and mine , well except for the health department , that I will be concentrating on this year. You can’t be happy without your health and wealth cannot buy you health, so this year, I’m taking care of my health alone. The rest, I’ll leave it to the partner.
One thing I am constantly reminding everyone here is, Feng Shui is not black magic, nor is it a religion. Some people think that Feng Shui is about one’s superstitions but it is not, it’s all about common sense and making good use of one’s space to improve the energy of your space.
Why is Christmas party in the office good feng shui ? someone asked me the other day. Because a Christmas party brings people together and therefore is a joyous occasion and joyous occasions are known to bring good chi into the office/business. But to have a successful Christmas party anywhere, one has got to get djs like the dj in charleston because they are the best and brings out the best in everyone during all kinds of party.
So if you own a business or a store or have an office, go ahead and party during these festive occasions because partying brings the goodness in people to come together.
Someone asked me about winter’s feng shui today, so I thought I would share some of the things I do during winter to feng shui my home and office. Since winter is usually very cold here in Canada, I try to bring warmth back into our home. So I bring in more warm color in the house and also make sure that our home and office is warm and candles are new and burning around the house and office as well. Remember, good energy comes from just doing very little and a little color in the home and office can change the entire perspective of your surroundings.
This Christmas , we bought some flutes for students who are attending the same school as my teenage daughter. They say that learning the flute can enhanced and heighten calmness in these teenage kids , so we donated a bunch to the school. I’ve also listened to feng shui music played with the flute and loved it immensely, so hopefully, these flutes that we bought for the students can help them.
November Feng Shui is all about family and friends for me, so if you are anything like me and like to entertain during November and Thanksgiving, make sure that you have good lighting in and around your home. They say that overhead lighting creates anxiety , so i avoid that and use side lighting during gatherings and dinner with friends and family. I hope you have a great Feng Shui November everyone.
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.
