What is Feng Shui?

Almost every wise saying has an opposite one, no less wise, to balance it.” – George Santayana

Literally meaning wind and water, Feng Shui is the Chinese art or practice of positioning objects based on a belief in patterns of yin and yang and the flow of chi that have both positive and negative effects.  Simply put, it is the balancing between the seen and unseen and the flow of universal energy (Chi) between these opposite, yet interdependent forces.  When yin (female, negative, passive, and form) and yang (male, positive, active and energy) are in balance, Chi flows easily.  Conversely, when there is an excess of yin or yang, the flow of Chi is disrupted or blocked.  We live in a society of extremes, where chaos and constant movement are highly valued, which, without its opposite, affects us in adverse ways.  When you are in harmony with yourself and your environment, abundance abounds and prosperity flows.

Feng Shui for Your Home or Office

Feng Shui is a great way to gain a sense of control of your surroundings and brings comfort to your soul.

  • Increase prosperity and your overall wealth
  • Improve your health by making your home a healing place
  • Deepen your relationships
  • Boost your creativity
  • More energy to do what you love
  • Bring peace and harmony back into your house

“Harmony makes small things grow; lack of it makes great things decay.”  – Sallust

Everybody Feng Shui Tonight

Whether you need to add a little happy to your home or need a total overhaul, a little Feng Shui goes a long way in increasing prosperity, happiness and harmony. The Bagua Map is a tool used in Feng Shui which divides life energies into 9 sections.  Use this tool to Feng Shui your home and see how the different sections correspond to different areas of your life.

10 Easy Ways to use Feng Shui to Live a Prosperous  Life

  1. Create a sacred space in your home
  2. Use stones and crystals in your office or workspace (Rose Agate, Ruby, Tektite are wealth boosters)
  3. Remove clutter from your home and office and watch creative juices flow
  4. Rub elbows (and energy) with other financially successful people for more money mojo
  5. Add décor and natural energy to indoor areas with natural objects, like seashells and stones
  6. Boost a room’s mood by adding plants and flowers-but no spikey or sharp leaf plants
  7. Make it rain: Add a water feature, such as a small fountain, in the entryway of your home or office for abundance
  8. Be artsy by accessorizing with your favorite artwork.  On a limited budget?  Hang masterpieces you love by ordering posters online and buying inexpensive poster frames at your local craft store
  9. Music to your ears (and your Chi): Play your favorite tunes or hang some wind chimes to soothe your soul
  10. Shine on by adding some color.  Color is the quickest way to change the mood of any room

Chi Your Way Out

What kind of energy does your home have?  Do you love some rooms and avoid others?  Imagine opening your front door as if you were flowing liquid.  Can you flow freely throughout your home, filling up your rooms smoothly and equally? Or, do you flow right out the back door or window in a rush?  If you can flow freely and fill up space equally, your Chi is good.  If, on the other hand, you feel like you’ve just been flushed violently from your home, your Chi is not so good.  Don’t worry.  By using a few of the 10 tips above, rearranging some furniture, and lighting some candles, your Chi will flow freely again.  If after taking these extra steps, you still feel your Chi is blocked, read  Feng Shui Simply: Change Your Life from the Inside Out, by Cheryl Grace to learn about the five elements, the Bagua Map, and how to use the inner Feng Shui toolbox to create wealth, health and harmony in your home.

No money to create an outer sanctuary?  No problem! Terah Kathryn Collins, the founder of the Western School of Feng Shui and originator of Essential Feng Shui®, suggests building your own inner sanctuary in order to maintain peace and balance in unpleasant environments.  She says, “To build your inner sanctuary, begin by visualizing a place composed entirely of the colors, images, aromas, sounds, and textures that you love.”  What will you include in your inner sanctuary?

Easy Affirmations For Positive Self Talk Change your attitude, change your mood.

27 Nov

ATTITUDE IS VASTLY IMPORTANT because it presents your image to the world and is the driving force behind behavior. Your attitude influences your world and everything you do in it. It defines the energy you send out and, in turn, takes shape and color in your circumstances. If you have a positive attitude, you are more welcoming and people are drawn to you. A positive attitude opens you to the flow of life. If you are depressed, angry, and unhappy, no one wants to be around you. You literally push people and opportunities away.

The wonderful thing is that you have the freedom to choose which attitude you want to adopt. There is no perfect way; each way is unique to each individual. Knowing that you can choose how to react is especially important when unexpected problems occur. Remind yourself of techniques to keep a positive attitude. In doing so, you are guaranteed to have a happier life.

Positive Affirmations

By simply changing your personal self-dialogue you can bring positive things to your life. Here are the three statements that shape positive self-dialogue:

  • I am – is a statement of who you are.
  • I can – is a statement of your potential.
  • I will – is a statement of positive change in your life.

I AM statements are positive affirmations of a real state of being that exists in you.

  • I am competent.
  • I am patient.
  • I am forgiving.

I CAN statements are positive affirmations of your ability to accomplish goals.

  • I can lose weight.
  • I can let go of guilt.
  • I can handle my children.

I WILL statements are positive affirmations of a change you want to achieve.

  • I will like myself better each day.
  • I will give others responsibility for their lives today.
  • I will feel good things about myself today.

To attract positive, joyful, and prosperous situations to you, you must be that way yourself. If you have an open, loving, positive attitude, anything burdensome in life can be lightened. Therefore, it is important to be aware of your mood. It is created by your thoughts. Every day you have a choice of how you will behave, the mood you will give out to the world, and how you want people to know you.

So if you want something in your life, first you must think of it, put your intention behind it, and keep your focus on it. It is almost like baking a cake. The thought is in the oven and you have to keep it baking with belief. You have to see your thought manifesting and becoming real.

Never forget you are a child of God. Follow your heart and be true to yourself. Never live the life of another. You have to create your own road. You have a responsibility to be the best you can possibly be, so keep your mind and heart open to the higher aspects of your being. And you will harness the power to have a loving and fulfilling life with attitude!

How To Work With Animal Spirit Guides. Get Guidance On Your Spiritual Path

24 Nov

Spirit attempts to communicate with us in a number of different ways and it’s up to us to become better listeners, no matter how these messages come to us. One of the most accessible ways is through animals. Whenever an animal shows up in an unusual way or repeatedly in a short space of time—whether it’s the physical animal or a symbol of an animal—it’s one way Spirit tries to reach us and teach us.

When this happens there’s a lot more going on than you might expect. In these instances it’s not just the animal or the life force that animates that particular animal, but much bigger than that. The oversoul of that species has sent a representative to offer you a message, to resonate with your spirit-consciousness and offer you guidance along your spiritual path.

How To Identify an Animal Spirit Guide

I’ve had many experiences where Spirit has come through with messages in this way and have heard many stories from others of similar occurrences. Just recently while preparing to attend a men’s group I walked out to the backyard and heard a flutter of wings coming from the trees in the neighbor’s yard. At first I thought nothing of it as it’s not unusual to see crows flying about here and there. Then in a flash a different type of bird appeared and much to my surprise and delight, it turned out to be a hawk! It was the first time ever that one showed up in our yard, so it certainly qualified as unusual. The hawk flew to the Arbutus tree directly behind the house and landed on the branch for a few moments, during which—I swear—he looked directly at me.

He didn’t stay long, but long enough for me to know he was delivering a message. I closed my eyes, took a deep breath, and asked, “Hawk brother, what’s your message?” Once you ask the question of the spirit animal (in this case Hawk spirit), it’s important to pay attention to everything that happens following, including what you see, hear, or feel.

In this case I immediately heard my inner voice, “Stay focused and pay attention for other signs,” which turned out to be completely relevant for the upcoming men’s group. My friend and I had offered to facilitate this particular session and since the group had been meeting for some time now, we both agreed that it was time to push the edges a bit further. We were confident the processes would open the way for greater honesty and depth.

Look For Messages From Your Spirit Animal Guide

I was driving to the group thinking about what Hawk had said when I pulled up to a stoplight and looked to my left. On the side panel of the U-Haul truck two feet away from me was an image of several snakes with reference to a website to “learn more about garter snakes and other animals.” I was immediately reminded of the second part of Hawk’s message—being alert to other signs—and once again asked for the message, this time from Snake spirit. “There’s to be significant healing in the group.” Okay, got it. That boosted my confidence that all will go well in the men’s group today and helped me relax and just show up and stay present and focused.

Without going into detail, the processes we introduced served the purpose. I was very thankful for Hawk and Snake spirit sending their representatives to me. Hawk spirit in the form of a physical hawk and Snake spirit via the symbols on the side panel of the truck, with several images of snakes as if to add to the power of that message.

What To Do When You See Spirit Animals

If you should have a similar experience of encountering an animal in physical or symbolic form as I did, there are a few things you can do to understand and interpret the message. Here are some suggestions that I’m sure you’ll find helpful.

  • Close your eyes, take a couple of nice, comfortable deep breaths, and in your mind state, “Please tell me or show me the message,” then pay attention to any immediate thoughts, images, or dialogue. Trust what you get, whether or not it makes immediate sense. It will later.
  • Think of the characteristics of the actual animal. That will give a clue to the spirit animal’s “medicine.” For instance, a hawk has incredible eyesight and when scanning the horizon with his broader vision, when something gets his attention, he focuses. So one of Hawk spirit’s medicines is the gift of focus and presence.
  • Refer to any books or other devices that give you some ideas as to the possible message, such as my book Animal Spirit Guides or the new condensed –and- revised Pocket Guide to Spirit Animals.
  • Search the Internet for terms such as spirit animals, power animals, totem animals, and so on to discover message of the particular spirit animal of your inquiry.

No matter the possible interpretation or meaning of the message, be sure that it somehow resonates with your inner knowing and your heart. The more you listen, the more you will hear. Most of all have fun with this and be sure to thank the animals and the spirit animals in whatever way you choose!
