Daily Feng Shui News for July 9 – ‘National Sugar Cookie Day’

On ‘National Sugar Cookie Day’ I’d like to share information about a common kitchen item that has been shown to balance or even lower blood sugar levels. A 2012 review of recent studies concluded that the use of cinnamon had a beneficial effect on glycemic control. In fact, one recent study found that taking a 500 mg capsule of cinnamon twice a day for 90 days improves hemoglobin levels and increased insulin action. Always check with a qualified professional before adding any alternative remedy to your health care, but also remember that if you have sugar issues, you should put the sugar cookies down, make a commitment to blood sugar monitoring and engage in both healthy eating and regular exercise. Doing all of that while supplementing with cinnamon might just restore balance and health and that would be, well, sweet.

Daily Feng Shui News for July 7th – ‘Global Forgiveness Day’

On ‘Global Forgiveness Day’ I am honored to share a Feng Shui forgiveness cure that never fails. If you have someone to forgive, or want someone to forgive you, then write their name on a piece of white paper with a green ink marker or pen. Fold the paper into quarters and place it at the bottom of a lidded receptacle. Pour enough honey over the paper to cover it and tightly close the lid. Every night for nine consecutive nights at approximately the same time, light a small white candle close to the receptacle and either ask for or offer forgiveness for or to the person whose name is written on the paper. This should take less than a few minutes. On the ninth and final night allow the candle to burn all the way down. Once it has sufficiently cooled, place all of the ingredients in a brown paper bag and dispose of it, including the candle remnants, somewhere outside of your living space. This tradition say that shortly after concluding this exercise you should hear from the person you were concentrating on and forgiveness will be forthcoming.

Daily Feng Shui News for July 6th – ‘World Kiss Day’

The lips have it on this ‘International Kissing Day,’ also known as ‘World Kiss Day.’ That means it might also be time to make your pout prettier while making your lips smoother and more supple. Gather together one tablespoon each of honey and almond oil, and two tablespoons of brown sugar. Two drops of peppermint essential oil are optional. Heat the honey in a microwave for no more than five seconds and then mix with the oil. Blend the sugar and mix until it creates a fine paste. Drop in the oil (or not) and gently pat the paste onto your lips and allow it to set for a few minutes. Massage in a circular motion to remove all dry, chapped and dead skin cells before rinsing with lukewarm water. Finish by adding a layer of the almond oil and then get ready to pucker up.

Daily Feng Shui News for July 5th – ‘Bikini Day’

Today is ‘Bikini Day’ and if you’re worrying about fitting into yours, then this next holistic remedy might help you slip back into it. Put one tablespoon of apple cider vinegar and two tablespoons of organic honey into a glass of unsweetened grapefruit juice. Mix thoroughly and drink it down approximately thirty minutes before each meal. In addition to reducing your appetite, this drink is also widely believed to shrink fat cells while also regulating the thyroid. I’ll take one for the road — and two for the beach!

Daily Feng Shui News for July 4th – ‘Feng Shui & Firecrackers’

On a day that is associated with firecrackers, I thought I’d share what Feng Shui has to say about them. Eastern traditions set off firecrackers on the New Year to blast away bad luck and scare off negative entities. These traditions also says that hanging faux paper firecrackers over the front door in groups of five or nine will not only symbolize force, protection and power but will also promote fame and wealth in your life. When hung in an office, they represent achievement of your highest goals. When hung in a room harboring any sort of negative spiritual energy, they provide support and can keep you from harm. If you ask me, that pretty much also provides freedom from worry too, and isn’t freedom what today is all about? Happy Fourth of July!

Daily Feng Shui News for July 3 – ‘Compliment Your Mirror Day’

Today’s ‘Compliment Your Mirror Day’ just might be one of my all time favorite days. Today, rather than complimenting the mirror, you will compliment yourself while you’re looking in it. This is a very powerful and effective technique to increase your confidence, self-worth and self-esteem. Upon awakening, look deeply into your own eyes reflected in a mirror. This might feel a bit uncomfortable at first but with repeated practice you will get more and more enthused about this exercise. Once you have connected with the essence of who you are, tell yourself that you love you. Simply say ‘I love you’ and leave it at that. Do this for forty consecutive days. After that period of time not only will you feel better about yourself but others will be more attracted to you as well. It’s a two-fer!

Daily Feng Shui News for July 2 – ‘I Forgot Day’

Let’s see, where was I? Oh, that’s right — I was going to remind you that today is ‘I Forgot Day.’ One of the reasons I remembered that so easily is because I know how to improve memory with aromatherapy. Research has shown that memory recall can double when the past is associated with a smell. That’s why a whiff of a certain fragrance can send you time-traveling, experiencing images and feelings associated with the actual event. The next time you want to recall something, try sniffing a bit of rosemary essential oil. Rosemary has a reputation for increasing memory and concentration and even aids in creative efforts. Other essential oils or plants that stimulate the brain are sage, basil and bay laurel. Here’s the magic sauce: The next time you’re learning something new, inhale one or more of these oils. When the time comes to retrieve the information, simply sniff the same scent and you should go zooming around your learning curve.

Daily Feng Shui News for July 1 – ‘Second Half of the Year Day’

This ‘Second Half of the Year Day’ is a perfect time to reflect on the resolutions or goals that you made in January and to see where you’re standing at the moment. It might make sense to update or refine some of those goals so they’re more in line with present energies, as well as those that you want to manifest during the next six months. Write three goals in red ink and keep them close so you can see them throughout your day. You may even want to say them aloud nine times each day — three times in the morning, three at midday and thrice in the evening. This is an ages-old way to make your dreams — and your goals — come true.
