The Feng Shui Relationship Secret


Have you been looking for love in all the wrong places?  Well, according the feng shui begua map, maybe you have been!  There is a little feng shui relationship secret that I would like to share with you, and it has nothing to do with the relationship area of your home!

You may have heard feng shui relationship tips before.  Place pairs of objects in the relationship gua to attract a partner.  Add red accents or two candles to get the spark and passion back. But the secret to really attracting the right person, or improving your current relationship, all depends on the Wisdom and Knowledge area of your home.  So let’s refocus our attention there, and I will give you three suggestions you can do to activate that area and boost your relationship!

How to Enhance the Wisdom and Knowledge Area to Attract the Right Person

  1. This area is located at the front of your home to the far left.  It is activated by the Earth element.  Therefore, the shape of the square, flowers, and earth tones (such as sand or even deep blue) will work great here.  These colors “ground” you and will help you plant your feet more firmly into who you truly are.  The purpose of activating the wisdom and knowledge area is so that you can learn to go within yourself and know what you really want.  If you don’t know what you really want, how could you attract the right person? Or, how could you tell your partner what it is you really want?
  2. Keep books in this area on topics about relationships, self-empowerment, or anything else that you wish to know more about.  If you take some time to read in this space, it will help you to reflect on who you are.  I have a blue chair in the knowledge area of my home.  It has become my favorite place to read and learn more  about my life purpose and what I want.  Even though I am in a relationship, spending time within still helps me to articulate what I need and keep the communication flowing.
  3. Do you spend time in the Knowledge area of your home? Do you have a cluttered closet in that space? Try to spend 5 minutes in that area everyday this week.  Take time to organize it, clean it, and just be.  You may have been avoiding this space and “running away from yourself.” The fact that you are reading this shows that you are ready to be true to yourself and attract the right person into your life.

One of my favorite Sex and the City quotes is:  “…the most exciting, challenging and significant relationship of all is the one you have with yourself. And if you can find someone to love the you you love, well, that’s just fabulous.”  So focus on you for a little while, and all the rest will fall into place.

How to manifest your dreams… with red wine!


When I found out I could drink red wine AND recreate my reality, I was thrilled. Since tonight is a new moon, it is the perfect opportunity to give this 5-minute exercise a try! The new moon is yin energy and it’s a great time to go within and set intentions for what you want to attract in your life. Feng shui practitioner Laurie Pawlie taught me this simple four step manifestation ritual. In order to move forward in the direction of your dreams, you’re going to enhance the fame and reputation area of your life by using the element of fire, hence the inclusion of red wine. You could even light a candle for extra pizazz! So pop the cork and join me!

Step One: Pour yourself a glass of red wine or grape juice. The color red, and any alcoholic beverages, represent the fire element. You’ll see why this is significant in a moment.
Step Two: Cut out a triangle from red paper (or you can use white paper and write with red pen for step 3 if you do not have red paper). The shape of the triangle and the color red also represent the fire energy.
Step Three: Write on the paper triangle as many positive affirmations as you can think of. Remember, you are focusing on the fire element here.  Fire is all about passion.  So as you write on the triangle ask yourself these questions:  What sparks my enthusiasm?  What is my passion? How do you I want the world to view me? How do I wish to see myself? You many write one simple word such as: leader, caring, compassionate.  Or you could try affirmations. Some example affirmations are:

“I am confident in my knowledge.”

“I am hardworking and dedicated.”

“My gifts and talents are appreciated.”
Step Four: Tape the paper in the fame and reputation area of your home. It is located in the center of your home at the far back (when you enter the front door). You can place it discretely so no one can see it, but of course you’ll know it’s there.

I would recommend writing on the paper at your dining room table since it represents the wealth and abundance in your home (and we all want to manifest more of that!). Enjoy a glass of wine or grape juice and envision all of the magnificent things people think and say about you. Enhancing your fame and reputation area also directly affects your career. After all, the way you progress in your career will be based on how your employers, clients and others view you.

The new moon is a great time to dream BIG and take action. Tonight is the full moon, so give it a try. I can’t wait to hear how your life has been positively impacted. Remember, your thoughts change your life!

Until next time,

How can numbers guide you?


What is your favorite number? Look out for repeated numbers like 111 or 888. These are signs meant just for you. In feng shui, each number has a different meaning. I look for signs all the time on license plates and other random sources throught the day. Numbers are everywhere, and they can encourage and guide you throughout your day.

The numbers 1-9 are listed below.  The representations listed are a combination of number meanings in feng shui, as well as from the “Angel Numbers 101” app and book by Doreen Virtue.
Here is a quick look at what these numbers could be trying to tell you:
1- New beginning. Its’a great time to start a new project or endeavor. The 11:11 or other repeats of this number are signs that your thoughts are materializing rapidly so keep focused on what you want, not what you don’t want. Your wishes are coming true!
2- Partnership and Relationship. You are learning to compramise. Everything is working out exactly as it is supposed to.
3- This represents balance (mind, body and soul). It can also represent Jesus or other ascended masters who are with you. Finally, 5 is the number of the family gua.  It represents financial security and that all of your bills will be paid and taken care of.
4- This number represents wealth in feng shui. Repeated 4’s can also be a sign that the angels are with you.
5- A “balanced” number in feng shui. When looking at numbers 1-9, 5 is right in the middle. This number can also represent change. A number such as “555” could be a sure sign that many positive changes are coming your way, so welcome them with open arms. It is also a sign of “out with the old and in with the new.”
6- Represents helfpul people. It is also a sign to give all material worries to God and your angels. Remember that our thoughts materialize, so keep them positive and focused on what you want.
7- 7 is a spiritual number. If you see a “7” know that you are on the right path and you are connected to your higher power. You have the “midas touch” and everything is working out in your favor. Think of the slot machines. “777” is always a win!
8- This is the sign of infinite abundance. 8 connects heaven and Earth. If you see this, know that your prayers about money have been heard and you are being taken care of.
9- This is most powerful number in feng shui. It represents energy and the completion of long term projects and goals. You are ready for the next phase of your career. Even if you don’t feel prepared, have confidence knowing that you have learned all of the prerequisites and all of your experiences have led you exactly where you need to be in this moment.
I hope you found this helpful, and I would be happy answer an questions. Enjoy finding numbers everywhere and let them lead you to your fullest potential and destiny!
