Daily Feng Shui News for Oct. 2nd – ‘Guardian Angel Day’

Spread your wings and say this next prayer that comes from author and angel archeologist JoAnn Cornug. After all, it is ‘Guardian Angel Day.’ You will be invoking the intercession of Angel Labbiel three times to begin. According to ancient legend, Labbiel is an aspect of the Archangel Raphael, who contributed in the creation of man. He resolves conflict, soothes the spirit and blesses you with grace when called upon. The following is the Prayer For Truth and Peace: ‘Labbiel, Labbiel, Labbiel. I call forth truth and peace in my world now and continuously.’ Can I get an Amen?

Fall Feng Shui Tips

Fall Feng Shui Tips

Find balance in your life with the changing seasons

Stephanie DempseyStephanie Dempsey on the topics of feng shui, fall

 

The fall season beckons us to slow down and enjoy the fruits of our labor. The days are getting shorter and the nights longer, prompting everyone to strike a better balance between their public and private lives. If you feel like one aspect of your life is consuming too much time and attention, this is an opportune time to make some Feng Shui adjustments to your home. Here are a few suggestions that can help you find time for friends and family while keeping busy with work.

Flower power

Nothing says autumn like the burnished colors of chrysanthemums, marigolds and nasturtiums. Display pots of these flowers wherever you tend to feel stressed or overburdened. Glimpsing their russet, gold and orange hues will be like rubbing soothing salve over sunburned skin.

Dim the lights

Change bright light bulbs for ones with lower wattage. It is easier to be active in summer because there is increased sunlight. Now that autumn is here, you need to bring things down a notch. Soft lighting will help you slow down and enjoy simpler pleasures, like a solitary cup of tea in the morning or soothing music in the evening.

Go with the flow

Adding a fountain to your favorite room in the house will help you make an easy transition from work to home. The sound of flowing water can quiet nagging doubts and fears that plague you during working hours.

Streamline your social life

If you feel like your social life is depleting your energy, update your address book. If it’s hopelessly cluttered, invest in an attractive new one. The act of entering people’s contact information into the new address book will make you more aware of the friends you truly treasure, versus the people you merely tolerate.

Get moving

If you’re having a hard time downshifting into autumn, reposition 27 items in your home. Why 27? Nine is considered the number of longevity in Feng Shui, and multiplying it by three, the number of growth, will invite a continuous string of auspicious changes into your life.

Stay focused

Do you have a hard time putting work aside, even after you come home? Hang a shelf bracket in the far left corner of your bedroom, and then place a beautiful vase or sculpture on it. This will help you lift your thoughts to a higher plane.

Picture this

Sometimes a desire to get ahead at work can cause you to neglect the people and things you love most. Displaying a recent photo of your loved ones on the far right corner of your desk can help you to strike a better balance between work and home.

Create boundaries

If you have no choice but to keep a desk in your bedroom, create a barrier between your sleep and work stations. Suspend a flowing curtain so that you can’t see your desk when you’re lying in bed. Alternately, you can shield the desk with some lush plants.

Soften up

Your bathroom represents your ability to nurture yourself. Make this space more inviting with soft lighting, fluffy towels and a tactile rug. Add soaps, candles and lotions that are pleasing to your sense of smell. A radio tuned to a relaxing music station can also transform your bathroom from a utilitarian space to a mini-spa.

Give thanks

The best way to enjoy the fruits of your labor is to pause and acknowledge them. Make a list of 27 things for which you are grateful, and then place this list in a red envelope. Put the envelope under your mattress and keep it there until the Winter Solstice. The energizing power of your list will suffuse you with peace and contentment, allowing you to enjoy autumn’s blessings to the very fullest.

Daily Feng Shui News for Sept. 30th – ‘National Mud Pack Day’

On ‘National Mud Pack Day’ I want to offer a simple homemade remedy for a mud mask that will leave your skin silky smooth and clear. Mash a whole banana and add a teaspoon of baking soda, a half-cup of sour cream, a quarter-cup maple syrup and three-quarters cup honey. To this blend add a bit of mud and slather the whole thing all over your face. Leave it on for fifteen minutes before washing it off with cool water. Now you’re ready to face the world.

Daily Feng Shui News for Sept. 29th – ‘Confucius Quote’

A day dedicated to Confucius is also a day that demands one of his potent pieces of wisdom. The following quote of his has hung in my kitchen since I moved into my house over a dozen years ago and it always reminds me to involve my son in the things I want him to learn. The quote and the wise advice inherent is: ‘Tell me and I’ll forget; show me and I may remember; involve me and I’ll understand.’ True words indeed.

Daily Feng Shui News for Sept. 27th – ‘Fish Amnesty Day’

Today is ‘Fish Amnesty Day’ and so I thought I would share an Eastern tradition that is believed to bring fortune and very good luck. In the Orient it is thought that if you let a fish go that the good karma that you’ve just accumulated will come back to reward you ten-fold. This is not just another fish tale.

Daily Feng Shui News for Sept. 26th – ‘Love Note Day’

Here’s a day after my own heart. It’s ‘Love Note Day’ and I thought I’d share that when you write a someone special a note, you should surround and infuse whatever you’ve written with a pink light that emanates from your heart. Do that for a minute or two and then seal with a kiss and off it goes.

The birthstone most associated with this month of September is the magical sapphire, long believed to be a stone that confers wisdom and serenity.

Feng Shui News for Sept. 23 – ‘Innergize Day’

Here’s one great way to energize yourself, both inside and out, on this ‘Innergize Day’ — and on every other day as well. The advice is you should take a minute or two each day to hop up and down ten times. Do this at least three times a day and you will bring a spring back to your step and a smile to your face. Of course, you will feel completely ‘innergized’ as well.
