To Fu or Not to Fu

In my practice of Feng Shui, I recommend Fu Dogs when a client is facing a challenging direction based on their year of birth, engaged in a win/lose battle or have reason to be fearful of circumstances. Today’s Fu Dogs grace the entries of homes and businesses; historically they were the original guardians of Buddhist temples. The purpose of the Fu Dogs is to block the negative intentions of those who enter. Fu Dogs look menacing. Many times they are referred to as lions, watchdogs, defenders of law or protectors from evil. The proper placement of the Fu Dogs is important. Here are my guidelines. They should always be used in pairs – a male and a female. The male, holds a ball under foot, and is placed on the right side of the entry from the...

Feng Shui: The Significance of the Back Yard

In Feng Shui, the backyard represents who you are becoming, or your evolving self. In short, your future.   Note the significance of all life forms which visit your back yard.  Who are you becoming?   Recently, I spotted a dragon fly hovering poolside in my backyard.

What are you seeing in your backyard?   Bee – creating prosperity Raven – being drawn into a mystery Rabbit – showing vulnerability Coyote – attracting a trickster Eagle – claiming your freedom Frog – cleansing Hawk – sharp vision, zeroing in on your goals Gecko – getting a second chance,...

Re-positioning furniture, placing a Buddha statue by the front door and clearing away kitchen clutter are all rote Feng Shui cures. Bring a heightened level of empowerment to standard Feng Shui cures by creating and infusing a specific intention into the placement.

Feng Shui Kitchen Insights

Feng Shui Kitchen Insights

If the kitchen cupboards and drawers are unorganized, working for others takes priority over working for self. If the cook top or oven is dirty, finances are challenging. If produce in the kitchen routinely spoils, the cook is self-sacrificing. If the kitchen counters are strewn with papers, bags and mail, ideas are cooked up, rather than projects completed. If the cook top is seldom used, opportunities are being ignored or resources untapped. For more information on Feng Shui consult www.thefengshuilady.com.

Where are you Storing Fire?

In Feng Shui, fire represents recognition, determination and confidence. A great place to store or display candles, candlesticks, matches and accessories is the center back of the house, particularly if you desire to build courage and motivation. Storage of fire in the back left corner of the house is considered financially debilitating.
