Feng Shui Tip for August 8th – 'Power of Eight'

Today’s energies make it the perfect day to activate the ‘power of eight’ inside your living space. Download an infinity symbol and trace over it eight times with a gold ink marker or pen. Place this image upright (never lying on its side) in the ‘Wealth’ area of your office, living room or even in the upper left hand side of your desk. It is believed that when placed with intention on this day, this symbol will bring great abundance, good health, wonderful relationships and protection from things that go bump in the night.

Handfasting

 

The actual term “handfasting” comes from the tradition of the bride and groom crossing arms and joining hands — basically, creating the infinity symbol (a figure-eight) with the hands. In Neopagan ceremonies, the clergyperson performing the ceremony will join the couple’s hands with a cord or ribbon during the ritual. In some traditions, the cord remains in place until the couple consummates the marriage. While some people may choose to have their handfasting be a permanent bond, others might declare it to be valid for “a year and a day”, at which point they will re-evaluate the relationship and determine whether to continue or not.

Your Daily Feng Shui Tip for Nov. 23 – ‘Black Friday’

If you must get up before sunrise to take advantage of ‘Black Friday’ sales, let’s at least try to keep you in the red. On this day, take a gold marker or gold ink pen and draw the infinity symbol (the number eight on its side) on a piece of red paper. Write this Florence Shinn affirmative action mantra on the back, ‘My Universal Supply is endless,’ and then place this paper in the ‘Wealth’ area of main floor or bedroom. Leave this supercharged symbol in place for nine or 27 days. This Friday might be black, but your bottom line will be in red and gold!
