Feng Shui Flower Power

Go green in achieving goals. Set an intention, reinforce it with the appropriate flower and watch for the “blossoms.” Reinforcing goals with Feng Shui flowers puts action into the intention, creating a doubly strong affirmation. Besides fresh flowers, choose decorative accessories, linens and art with suitable flower motifs. Peony: Love and romance Place a vase of peonies in the bedroom with the intention of attracting a lover Magnolia: Beauty Feature a magnolia picture in the bathroom and set the intention of beauty. Orchid: Fertility and truth Set an orchid on the desk to counter deception in business Chrysanthemum: Happiness, ease and balance Plant chrysanthemums outside a child’s bedroom and set intentions of happiness Lotus: Perfection,...

Fuk Luk Sau: Wishing you Wealth, Health, & Happiness

During this holiday season, bring the gift of health, wealth and happiness into your home with Fuk Luk Sau. According to Chinese traditions, these three gods or deities contain the spirits of wealth, health and happiness. They were originally astrological stars, known as the Three Star Gods. Many Chinese legends abound of their generosity to mortals. The positioning of the three-some is significant. Keep in mind their names read right to left. Fuk is on the far right (he is the bald one) Luk is in the middle and Sau is on the left. Fuk brings wealth, Luk stands for power and authority, while Sau brings longevity or health. The placement of Fuk Luk Sau is flexible with two exceptions. They should be displayed as a trio only, placed on a high table, shelf or ledge,...

Set the Intention of Prosperity with Pi Yao

In my practice of Feng Shui, I recommend the positioning of Fu Dogs when a client is facing danger or needs protection. The Pi Yao is another Chinese mystical animal, lesser known and often confused with the Fu dogs. Pi Yao offers protection, but is more flexible in its placement. Pi Yao is a mystical animal with an infinite appetite and no anus. Symbolically, everything Pi Yao consumes he keeps. Pi Yao is a favorite of shopkeepers and bankers wishing for an influx of money with minimal expenses. They are also used to offset the distress of construction and renovation. Pi Yao is often shown sitting on coins. Use Pi Yao to protect assets and hold on to existing fortunes. They are a perfect cure near cash registers and safes. Pi Yao is considered the patron angel...

To Fu or Not to Fu

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. Dragon flies are considered a sign of new perspectives and showing off your colors. 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,...

The Power of Intention

The Power of Intention

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. Power of IntentionFor example, this morning I pruned my 20-year old oleander bush which dominates the Support Gua (left side of my yard from the perspective of the street.) All the while I was cutting, gathering and filling my 3 over-sized garbage cans with trimmings, I focused on feelings of being supported – support for my son taking his college finals, support for my daughter in her work, support for my husband who faces multiple project deadlines and support for myself and my consultation...
