Daily Feng Shui News for Oct. 25th – ‘Tourmaline’

 

The birthstone most associated with October is the tourmaline. An old Egyptian legend tells how this stone, when making the trip from the heart of the earth up to the sun, traveled along a rainbow, collecting all the colors along the way. No matter the color, all tourmaline are said to increase self-confidence while neutralizing negative energies as well. Tourmaline is also believed to dispel fear, relieve grief and aid in concentration and communications. I think that you’ll agree that this surely is one precious gem!

Daily Feng Shui News for Oct. 17th – ‘Black Poetry Day’

On ‘Black Poetry Day’ I want to share an affirmation of sorts pulled from one of my favorite Langston Hughes poems. I kept this quote by my bed while growing up and even now I still refer to it, especially when I find myself getting a bit off kilter. Here is the poem ‘Motto’ in full: ‘I play it cool, I dig all jive, That’s the reason I stay alive. My motto, As I live and learn, Is dig and be dug in return.’ I dig this. I hope that you do too.

Daily Feng Shui News for Oct. 7th – ‘Smiling’

Turn that frown upside down today because smiling comes with actually health benefits. Smiling is said to make you more attractive while also affecting an immediate lift to your spirits and mood. Smiling relieves stress while boosting your immune system and releasing natural pain-killers. And a smile is said to make you look younger, as it lifts the muscles in the face. Some studies suggest that smiling people appear more confident and successful while others say that a smile can actually help you to stay positive while relieving depression and stress. Like I said, turn that frown upside down today — you’ll be really happy you did.

Feng Shui News for August 14th – ‘Harvest Moon’

According to the Native American calendar, September is the time of the ‘harvest moon,’ or the period described as the ‘Moon of the Black Cherries. In fact, this month has many floral associations with the blackberry. When taken according to directions, Blackberry Flower Essence is believed to alter patterns or obstacles that are keeping you from achieving your most dearly held dreams. In fact, it is said that imbibing Blackberry Flower Essence can greatly assist you in manifesting whatever you want. The remedy goes on to promise that the person who can’t seem to get out of their own head (or their own way) could benefit from the positive results associated with this blackberry remedy. This is what Native Americans call ‘Moon Magic’ at its best.

Daily Motivator for Sept. 11 – Habit of achievement

Habit of achievement

Old, destructive habits can feel very comfortable, at least for the moment.  Over time, however, those negative habits can waste an enormous part of your  life, or worse.

 

The good news is that you can build positive, empowering habits that will  soon feel just as comfortable and familiar as the old negative ones. It takes  effort and commitment, and a little discomfort, yet it is well worth all  that.

 

Instead of habits that waste your time and burden your life, you can choose  habits that push you steadily forward. Instead of slowly creating heartache and  disappointment, you can be steadfastly creating success and achievement.

 

Time can be your enemy or your friend, depending on what you do with each  little moment. Make the choice, and put forth the effort, to make each moment  count for something positive and meaningful.

Choose a habit that brings you down and replace it with one that lifts you  up. Make it your goal to make achievement your default mode.

Some of the most powerful things you do are the things you do by habit. So  choose to direct all that power in a positive, life-enriching direction.

Feng Shui For Sept. 4 – ‘Mallow’

According to Feng Shui the plant most associated with the month of September is the mallow. Its medicinal properties have been extolled since ancient times and are still used today, most especially for relieving the mucous membrane lining the upper respiratory system during a cold. So the next time you feel the sniffles coming on, reach for the mallow and watch that cough and cold simply disappear.

Daily Feng Shui News for Sept. 3rd – ‘Skyscraper Day’

‘Skyscraper Day’ brings up a Feng Shui cure for your living space, especially if you’re sandwiched between two taller structures. The smaller space in the center is often seen as a place that isn’t able to attract healthy, happy and prosperous Chi since the taller buildings around it block that high vibe. One way to correct this conundrum is to position a mirror, reflective side up, on the roof of your building. The mirror will symbolically reflect the height of the surrounding structures, bringing your building up with the big boys. Now everyone will get their fair share of the high vibe and be healthy, happy and prosperous too.
