Daily Feng Shui News for May 19th – ‘It’s All About Birds’

Flights of fancy could conceivably preoccupy you today as great blessings take wing. According to Feng Shui, birds bring sometimes surprising but always excellent news. The unexpected appearance of birds can feather your nest with opportunities as well. And they bring joy! If you want to engineer some aviary attention, then simply scatter some birdseed on your front walkway to bring opportunities that will let your luck soar right to your own front door.

Daily Feng Shui News for May 14th – ‘Buddha Day’

Today’s ‘Buddha Day’ is a time for me to share what Feng Shui has to say about placing Buddha statues or images in your home. This tradition states that any holy object such as those just mentioned should always occupy a place of respect and should never be treated as decoration. One of the best places for displaying a Buddha statue or image is in the front entryway. The statue should be placed so that it is diagonally facing the front door so it can welcome fortune, luck, opportunity and blessings into your living space.

Daily Feng Shui News for May 7th – ‘National Nurses Week’

It’s ‘National Nurses Week’ and today is ‘School Nurses Day.’ I’ve often written about how much I appreciate both teachers and nurses who give so much and who are often not as compensated as they should be. I also harbor great gratitude to the many nurses who have taken care of my loved ones throughout the years. If you know a nurse, particularly a school nurse, who could use some show of appreciation today, then take the time to offer a sincere ‘thank you.’ I am doing that from my heart right now.

Daily Feng Shui News – ‘National Tourist Appreciation Day’

On ‘National Tourist Appreciation Day’ I just want to remind once again that if you bring home a trinket or some other souvenir from your travels then you must be sure to cleanse the memento before using or displaying it. The fastest and easiest way to cleanse energies is to use the smoke from dried sage or incense. Simply let the smoke waft over and around the piece and then you can consider it completely cleansed and good to go.

Daily Feng Shui News for May 2nd – ‘Robert’s Rule of Order Day’

Some may be celebrating ‘Robert’s Rule of Order Day’ today, but I think that we should take a look at the first rule of order according to Feng Shui. Before undertaking any Feng Shui adjustment you must first clear the clutter in your living or work space. And don’t forget cyber clutter, as that can also have a big negative affect on your mental psyche. Clean out and throw or give away anything you no longer use and delete old texts and voicemails. You’ll feel loads lighter and your life will start to get in, well, order.

Daily Feng Shui News for April 30th – ‘Beltane’

On some Celtic calendars today is called ‘Beltane,’ a day dedicated to fertility and the return of the sun. Fairies are believed to be quite active during Beltane, and including them in your celebration is important. One way to do that is to leave food and drink on a windowsill or outside of your front door as an offering to nourish and nurture the fairy folk. Legend says that by doing this they will protect you and yours for the rest of the year.

Daily Feng Shui News for April 29th – ‘World Wish Day’

I love the energies of this ‘World Wish Day.’ In fact, manifesting experts share that the magic sauce to making a wish come true is to feel the emotions that you would experience when your wish does come true. Behavioral psychology calls this ‘acting as if.’ So go ahead and act as if your wish had been granted and get grateful beyond belief. Happy (and magical) wishing to you!

Daily Feng Shui News for April 24th – ‘Pig in a Blanket Day’

Today is ‘Pig in a Blanket Day,’ but whether wrapped in a blanket or not, the pig is considered a prized possession in traditional Eastern cultures. According to Feng Shui, good fortune comes to households that display symbols or images of a pig. They signify prosperity, wealth, fertility and success in all affairs.

Daily Feng Shui News for April 22 – ‘Earth Day’

Today is ‘Earth Day’ and so this one is easy. Today, do something — anything — to improve the condition of the planet. Recycle or pick up garbage lying by the side of the road or monitor your water usage. Turn off faucets when you brush your teeth and don’t run your shower for five minutes before getting in.

Daily Feng Shui News for April 7th – ‘Sweet Taters, Yum!’

For some reason, today I’m thinking of a sweet potato ritual to make a wish come true that I learned eons ago. This exercise says that you should carve your name and birth date on a sweet potato and make a wish. Then insert toothpicks into the sweet potato and hang it over a glass of water. Once the potato starts to sprout ‘eyes’ you should bake and eat it. The sweet promise is that this potato will make your dreams come true.

Daily Feng Shui News for April 6 – ‘Drowsy Driver Awareness Day’

Today is ‘Drowsy Driver Awareness Day’ and I’d like to wake drivers up to an essential oil that will keep them alert and aware while also potentially preventing accidents. In 1879 the British Medical Journal noted that peppermint essential oil is a strong mental and physical stimulant that can keep concentration high while also helping one to stay awake and attentive. Put a few drops on a cotton ball and place it in your car or just keep a small one handy and inhale whenever you feel your energy and your focus waning as you drive.
