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.
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.
For a healthy work place environment, not only must your work place be conducive but also a happy place before feng shui can work for you. So my question to everyone who are bosses is how do you make your employees happy?
Look at huge companies like Google and Microsoft, they have resting places for their employees, a huge cafeteria where you can have healthy meals and of course the health insurance coverage questions that all employees will be asking you.
If I am going to work for a company for a long time or be loyal to it, don’t you think that having insurance coverage for myself and the entire family is important? So if you are asking for feng shui for your workplace, then you have to think of happy employees and their family and good feng shui will follow.
Music can definitely enhance your environment , then in turn enhance the feng shui around your home. Some people complain that they can find the right music that they like or feel happy about, so I tell them to get some cheap gear and record their own.
They can play their own instruments or better yet, go out and capture the sound of birds or the nature, whatever makes them feel relax and good about themselves. Especially, for those living in the city or a high rise apartment, definitely do it and play those music to enhance the feng shui of y our home and your living.
