Four Steps to Improve Cash Flow

s-w300

Do you want a bit more money in your purse or wallet?  A healthier bank account?  Here is a new feng shui cure for you to try.  All you need is a metal bowl!

Step One:  When reading Davinia Mackail’s Feng Shui, a Hay House Basic*, she revealed an excellent cure that I cannot wait to try!  First, locate the Helpful People/Travel area of your home.  It is in the font of your house when you enter, all the way to the right (see begua map below).

Step Two: The helpful people and travel gua is ruled by the metal element.  Locate a metal bowl and place it somewhere in this area. It can have any metallic finishes such as silver, gold, bronze, or copper. Any additional circular details on the bowl will simply enhance the metal element and maximize the benefits.

Step Three: Now that you have an empty metal bowl in the Helpful People gua, it is time to fill it up! Every time you have loose change, place the coins in the bowl.  The coins are made of metal and round, so the effect of the coins is doubled.

Step Four: Once the bowl is filled, donate the money to a charity of your choice. This area is not only enhanced by metal, but it also represents Spiritual People.  “There are many spiritual ideology that advocates the practice of tithing– giving away 10 percent of earnings to help others.”  Therefore, this cure is all around perfect when practiced in this area of your home!

According to Mackail, you should find that as a result of this practice, your general cash flora will increase.  Your bank account will look healthier.  And you will find ways to save money or reduce your costs. Plus it just feels good to give back, doesn’t it?

Please give this a try and let me know how it works for you!  I am going to locate a bowl and give it a try myself. I also invite you to “like” my Facebook page!

Until next time,

Namaste!

What Does Diamond Shape ‘Got to Do’ with Your Relationship?

halo-princess-engagement-rings1
Finding the “right” diamond is not a one-time deal.  It can transform and evolve with your relationship.

OK ladies, let’s talk diamonds!  What does feng shui reveal about the meaning of each diamond shape? Whether you are still looking for the perfect diamond, or if you already have one, this article is for YOU.   This post explains what the different ring shapes represent. I also give you tips on how you can modify your wedding ring to transform your relationship!

Princess Cut (Square) Diamond: The square shape in feng shui signifies stability.  The square represents the Earth element.  If you have a square diamond your relationship will be deeply rooted and down-to-earth.

Round or Oval Diamond: The circle in feng shui represents the metal element. It enhances communication and clairvoyance.  If you have the classic round diamond, you probably have excellent communication with your significant other.  You also are probably have a keen sixth sense with your partner, and you know what the other is thinking or feeling before they even speak up.

Princess Cut (Square) Diamond with a Round Halo: This is a very special combination.  It represents “Heaven & Earth.”  The square represents Earth and the circle represents heaven (connections to ascended masters and angels). If you have this combination, your Earthly connection is protected by heaven.  You will always be able to tap into your Higher Power during difficult times and find comfort and refuge.

Round Diamond with Square Halo: In this case, the Earth element is surrounding the spiritual element. This ring combination could signify that your connection is deeply spiritual with great communication.  Your relationship is also surrounded and supported by the Earth, so you probably have a lot of Earthly supports in your relationship and your material needs are always met.

Princess Cut with Square Halo: This simply means that the Earth element is strongly enhanced.  So, your relationship is even more grounded.  You have deep family roots and a strong commitment to each other.

“Round edges will ’round out’ any ‘rough edges’ in your relationship.”

Emerald Cut: The Emerald cut is an elongated, vertical rectangular shape with rounded edges. This signifies the wood element.  If you have this cut diamond you will find that you are deeply dedicated to your family. Also, round edges will “round out” any “rough edges” in your relationship.  In fact, this is true for all rings. Which leads to my next point…

If you want to have better communication or “round out” rough edges in your relationship, add a halo with rounded edges to your ring. If you feel like you need a more grounded, deeply rooted connection, add a square halo to your ring.  The BEST part about feng shui is that you can always make adjustments to modify and elevate your current circumstances.

Is this post TRUE for you?  Please share your insights!  Did I miss your diamond shape?  Let me know and I will fill you in! I also invite you to “like” my Facebook page  for occasional tips on your newsfeed.

Namaste!

Online Feng Shui A Valid Way?

As a practitioner who works with the Western School of Feng Shui (BTB) I also agree that consultations need to be in-person. I am grateful to my teacher Laurie Pawlie (Feng Shui School of Chicago) who learned from Grand Master Lin Yun. Certainly we must honor our forefathers who passed down the knowledge over thousands of years. I am thankful I can always go to her as a mentor to make sure my recommendations are congruent with what traditional feng shui advises. To honor its ancient wisdom we must maintain and honor the red envelope tradition. Could this be done through the mail and all consultations via phone and e-mail? I wonder what others think?

Feng Shui Consultant Malaysia

Today many consultants are offering Online Feng Shui Consultancy. It’s easy, fast and hassle free or is it so? The one drawback is that the owner has to do some work.

However is this a valid way of performing a Feng Shui Audit? This is the important question because it concerns your own well being. I would like to offer a couple of pointers for those thinking of seeking for easy way out by having an Online Feng Shui Audit.

I would say there are fundamentals in Feng Shui that we should not ignore that has been taught by our forefathers or grand masters. This is the reason why we need a Lineage in Feng Shui field.


If you look up the dictionary, Lineagemeans lineal descent from an ancestor; ancestry or pedigree.


The problem is that many learn from Masters who reads from books sold for a few US…

How to Tap into the Unlimited Flow of Abundance with One Feng Shui Principle

0a864212-3f95-4137-b547-69b5ed61e819

Did you know that abundance is as vast as the ocean?  Imagine walking up to the sea with a bucket.  You could not possibly scoop up the entire ocean simply by using your bucket!  The ocean represents all the abundance that the universe has to offer you.  You could not possibly get “it all,” and yet the ocean represents how unlimited the resources and opportunities of the universe are to you.  Unfortunately, we live in a world where so many people see that things are lacking. Not enough time.  Not enough money.  Never enough.  You can shift this energy with ONE simple feng shui cure!

Once you try this one feng shui principle, you will see immediate results.  You will start to notice abundance flowing to you like a waterfall.  I want you to think of something that you really want.  Notice how you feel about asking for this.  Do you feel deserving?  Does your inner voice tell you “I couldn’t…”  or “It’s too much…”?  These responses are normal if you are thinking in your ego.  Let’s allow ourselves to think BIGGER for ourselves.  The more you have in your life, the more you are able to give back and help others.  So allow yourself to ask for the money, time, and other resources that you need.  It’s nothing to feel guilty about.

“The more you have…the more you are able to give back…”

So why does it seem like we can’t always get what we want? The right relationship or the dream home?  The truth is that you can, but you need to take baby steps to get there.  One of our major stumbling blocks is that we don’t feel deserving of everything.  Who are we to “have it all?”  We think if we ask for “too much,” it will take away from someone else.  You need to know that any abundance you attract will not take away from anyone else because there are infinite possibilities for us all. Back to the ocean analogy.  You could not possibly scoop up the entire ocean with your little bucket.  The point?  No request is too great for God! Ask for anything your heart calls for.

“Any abundance you attract will not take away from anyone else because there are infinite possibilities for us all.”

So, what is the feng shui cure that will help you attract abundance? Practice gratitude.  It is like a magnet.  Wayne Dyer said, “What you think expands. Monitor your inner dialogue, and match your thoughts to what you want and what you intend to create.” Like attracts like.  The more gratitude you have the more you will have to be grateful for.

“What you think expands…. Match your thoughts to what you want.”

As you go through your day, think of 9 things that you are grateful for.  Then, tonight, write all nine things down. It is so important that you write them down.  It solidifies all that you are grateful for, and it is a message to the universe that you appreciate all that you have been blessed with, and I assure you more will come flowing in.

Let us remember that the universe WANTS to provide us with all of our desires, granted they serve a higher good. We are born to fulfill our dharma and succeed.  Let’s allow our dreams to become reality with this one simple practice.

3 Feng Shui Tips for Busy Moms

mommy and abby bwIt is summer again!  For all parents, it means the kids are home from school.  For teachers like me, it means that you are back to being a full-time mom.  I talk about fulfilling your life purpose a lot.  Careers are a very important outlet to serve our communities and give back.  Yet, being a parent is a vocation, or a calling, too.  Some moms or dads are lucky enough to be home with their children full-time. And to you, I tip my hat.  Although parenting is quite possibly the most fulfilling and important job on the planet, it is also challenging and, at times, thankless.  As a teacher, I am preparing myself for the transition of being a working mom, to being a stay-at-home parent.  Here are three ways busy moms can use feng shui to help them embrace parenthood and joyfully live their life purpose as a parent.run to mommy color

Tip One: Mindfulness

It does not matter if you are a working mom or a full-time mom, we forget to live in the present moment all the time!  We need to remind ourselves daily, “She is only going to fit in that 2T top and wear pampers for a short time…” Even though it seems like it will be forever.  The dishes will always be in the sink, and there will always be a pile of clean laundry waiting to be folded. Make it a priority to turn off the TV and just allow your child to lead the way.  All they really want at any given moment is your full attention.

Tip Two: Feng Shui Food

I know you are busy, but here is a quick tip that can help you at the grocery store.  Choose a variety of colored foods when you are shopping for your little ones.  In feng shui there are five elements, which are represented by colors.  In order to be balanced and healthy, we need to have an even dose of all the elements. So a plate filled with multi-colored natural foods is very important. Now that I am back to being a full-time mom, I need to get myself mentally prepared to make a variety of lunches!  My daughter’s day care did such a great job of providing the kids with an array of healthy lunches.  She never got bored because her daily “report card” always said she ate “All” (as opposed to “Some” or “None”) of her food.  This summer I am challenging myself to get as many colors on her plate as I can!

Tip Three: Organization in Moderation

Getting the house organized on a daily basis can be really tough.  We could spend the entire day picking up toys and cereal, not to mention cleaning dishes!  So, here is my suggestion.  Clean up the clutter in moderation.  If you are going to be a “mindful parent” as suggested in tip one, you really can’t obsess over having everything neat and tidy 24/7. I know that as parents we are all struggling to find the balance between housework and play. If anyone has any suggestions,  I would actually appreciate some comments or help with this one!  All  I know is that clutter attracts more clutter and creates a “cluttered mind.”  In order to avoid this, my “plan” for the summer is to clean up after breakfast and then head out of the house!  Go to the park.  Visit the library.  Take a trip to the zoo or a friend’s house.  I feel like this will keep my daughter from tearing everything apart and help me think more clearly; in turn being a more present and mindful parent.

Whatever you do this summer, I wish you all much love and light.  I look forward to connecting with you on my Facebook page !

Until Next Time,

Namaste!
