To some, the concept that everything is alive and has intelligence may be foreign, but I have learned that the wisdom of Nature itself can guide people through every aspect of aligning their homes and office spaces with the purpose of the property.

We can access our own feng shui consultant in Nature Herself. She can guide us very specifically as to how to best align with Her for harmony and balance. Read more:

Feng shui means “wind and water” — aligning with the forces of nature. Instead of trying to dominate and control Nature, we learn to come into contact with Her as a co-creative partner, and elicit and respect Her wisdom.

Feng shui has long held to the notion of what has been referred to as the “Spirit of Place.” That spirit of place is a consciousness and as such is accessible and able to lend its wisdom to help us to live in harmony with the earth at that specific location. If asked, Nature will give us instructions that are specific and tailored to each situation about how best to live in harmony with Her. Through a direct connection and communication with the spirit of Nature itself, we have access to the original “author” of the various feng shui texts. Sometimes we forget that feng shui, and the Indian counterpart, Vastu are an art of divination. If not from Nature, then from whom do they divine?

This co-creative potential with nature has been demonstrated by many such as MacHaelle Small Wright in the gardens of Perelandra who, working with the spirit of nature of the gardens, demonstrated miraculous events such as insects who left crops alone and stayed instead only in the areas designated for them. There is also the now famous example of the magical gardens of Findhorn, where 40 pound cabbages grown in the sandy soil of Scotland defied conventional wisdom; by contacting the intelligence and consciousness of Nature itself, the gardeners gained a direct wisdom of how to proceed. Similarly, we hear stories of Luther Burbank teaching cacti and roses to grow without thorns simply by communicating with the consciousness of the plants themselves.

In the larger context of the Re-emergence of the Feminine principle upon the planet, we are really talking about re-uniting with an aspect of ourselves as Creators, with the aspect of ourselves reflected in Nature. We have thought of Nature as separated from ourselves for so long that many will find it difficult to think of it as anything other than foreign. However, it is the Shakti to our divine Shiva nature. When working together, as co-creative partners, magic happens! We interact with nature spirits in everything we do all day long, known or unknown. The difference between the magician, the alchemist, the Shaman, is that they do it consciously. So, let the magic begin.

Daily Feng Shui Tip for January 10th

Today is ‘Houseplant Appreciation Day,’ a good time to show you how to plant a little luck in your living space that will result in family fortune. First locate the Family/Friends/Ancestors area on the main floor of your living space, found in the middle left-hand of your home or office. This area relates to your family, both past and present, including siblings and great-grandparents. According to Feng Shui, we are energetically linked to our blood relatives, and as goes one, so go all. Theoretically, this also implies that whenever anything happens to any member of the family, all those sharing the same bloodline will feel the reverberation in some way or another. This Ancestors arena also governs the health of the liver, blood, teeth and addictions, as well as our relationships with people in authority or those who hold any sort of power over us. It also relates to new thoughts, inspirations and ideas. So you can see why it’s important to bring balance to such a potent space. Wood is the element most associated with this area, so houseplants are the perfect remedy to activate energies of blessing and balance. In fact, because the number three is also a secret activator for this Ancestors space, it is said that placing three green plants here will nurture and nourish all agendas. Loving, watering and keeping these plants healthy will have that same reciprocal result on all the members of your family. Plant these intentions today and watch as familial blessings bloom and grow!

Daily Feng Shui Tip for December 29th

As this year comes to a close it makes sense that today would be called ‘Tick Tock Day.’ It’s also the perfect time to talk about what Feng Shui has to say about clocks and watches. According to Feng Shui, you should never give anyone older than you a watch, especially an elderly person, as this philosophy states that the intention behind that gift is a limitation of days, or wishing the recipient a limited amount of time left in their life. Clocks also represent the idea of limitation and should be carefully placed the inside of the house. Feng Shui says that you should never display a clock so that it is the first thing that you see as you enter the house. As well, you should never display a clock in the ‘Family/Friends’ area, again underscoring how this ideal symbolizes a limited lifetime for loved ones. It’s okay to have a clock in the kitchen, the living room or the home office, but things get a bit trickier where the bedroom is concerned. That room is intended to be a space of total and absolute rest and relaxation, and it should be ruled by a different kind of clock — your body clock! Children, however, can have clocks in their rooms since it’s believed to help teach them how to tell time. Of course, whenever we’re talking about positioning clocks in bedrooms, we’re always mindful to add that Feng Shui advises to only use a battery operated clock as electric clocks can emit potentially harmful EMF fields. With all that said, some Feng Shui consultants will advise placing a clock in any area of the house that has good Chi so that the movement of the clock’s hands can further stimulate more active Chi to circulate throughout the house. But with the Chinese reminding us that clocks symbolize ‘time running out,’ you may want to be very specific about where in your living space you put yours. Once again, if you simply place one in your kitchen, then go ahead and give yourself a hand!
