Daily Feng Shui News for Jan. 31 – ‘Inspire Your Heart With Art Day’

Today’s ‘Inspire Your Heart With Art Day’ offers the perfect excuse to share information about Feng Shui and art. This modality says that having abstract art in your immediate environment can be distracting at best and depressing at worst. Rather, this tradition says to hang art that symbolizes unlimited possibilities, like fields of flowers, horizons, sunsets, things soaring in the air (birds, balloons, rocket ships), or whatever else that makes you feel like anything is possible.

Daily Feng Shui for January 16 is ‘Appreciate A Dragon Day’

Today’s ‘Appreciate a Dragon Day’ is a great time for me to share some information about the role that mythical animal plays in magical Feng Shui. The dragon is considered the most important symbol in both this tradition and in Chinese folklore as well. It is believed the precious cosmic breathe of the dragon can create miracles in our lives. The dragon is traditionally associated with the East, so placing an image of a dragon on the east side of your office or living space will attract good fortune while also bringing good luck your way.

Feng Shui News for Dec. 21 – ‘National Flashlight Day’

Call me crazy but I see synergy in today’s ‘National Flashlight Day’ and ‘National Look on the Bright Side Day.’ In fact, according to Feng Shui, using lights to their best advantage will always have you looking on the bright side, especially if you follow this next Feng Shui tip. If you’re looking for more positive opportunities to unfold in your life, this tradition says to keep your front entryway lit for at least three consecutive hours a day for nine straight days. They can stay on longer than three hours, but they must at least be lit for that duration. The promise is that you will be illuminating an intentional pathway for excellent opportunities to come calling. And since it’s the holiday season, let’s get lit!

The Daily OM for December 5th – A Citizen of the World

A Citizen of the World
Vacations

by Madisyn Taylor

An aware traveler sees each new journey as an opportunity to gain a greater understanding of humanity.

As the technology of travel grows ever more refined, the world grows smaller. Whereas a journey of a hundred miles once took many days, we can now travel across the globe in mere hours. The four corners of the earth are accessible by plane, train, and ship, and there are few pleasures in l

ife as soul-stirring and transformative as travel. In a new land, the simplest of joys can be profound—meditation takes on a new quality because the energy in which we are immersed is unfamiliar. Our sensory experiences are entirely novel. Yet the relative ease with which we can step out of our own culture in order to explore another means that we are ambassadors representing not only our own way of life but also the culture of the traveler. As a conscious citizen of the world, you can add value to the locales you visit while simultaneously broadening your own perspective.

A truly aware traveler sees each new journey as an opportunity to improve international relations, spread goodness, and gain a greater understanding of humanity. To immerse yourself in foreign cultures is to open your mind to fresh ways of being. Your natural curiosity can help you navigate the subtleties that define a culture. While you may not agree with all the traditions or laws of a country, abiding by them demonstrates that you understand and respect their value. Staying centered in another culture is often simply a matter of learning about your destination, being patient with yourself and others, and accepting that people may treat you as an example of your country’s attitudes. New worlds will open to you when you take part in the everyday life of a locale—the reality of a destination is in its markets, its streets, and its people.

Traveling presents a wonderful opportunity to practice being open-minded and grounded. The voyages you make help cultivate a worldwide community in which we as humans can acknowledge and appreciate our differences as much as we recognize and appreciate our similarities. Though you will eventually return home, the positive impression you leave behind will remain as a testament to the respect and amicability that marked your intercultural interactions.

Daily Feng Shui News for Dec. 3rd – ‘Roof Over Your Head Day’

On this ‘Roof Over Your Head Day’ I thought I’d share some ages-old, ‘secret’ Feng Shui about just that. If the surrounding buildings are taller than the one you live in, then fresh Chi or energy cannot reach your abode, making for some very bad Feng Shui. Eventually, all the energy in your living space will be old and stale and attract only negative things into your life. To counteract this, Feng Shui suggests that you position a mirror on your rooftop with the reflective side facing up. This will symbolically expand your roof so that it’s now proportionate with the taller ones around you.

Daily Feng Shui News for Dec. 2nd – ‘Special Education Day’

On this ‘Special Education Day’ I’d like to teach you a Feng Shui cure for getting good grades. This adjustment is applicable for any student at any age or stage in their studies or lives. According to this tradition, a small statue of a seven- or nine-layered pagoda placed on a student’s study desk or at bedside is believed to be a powerful way of cleaning the atmosphere of impurities while also bringing study ‘luck’ to students. Placing this pagoda in either the ‘Knowledge’ or ‘Fame’ area of the student’s room is additionally believed to bring fame and eventual career advancement. That’s a lot of punch from one small pagoda.

Daily Feng Shui News for Nov. 19th – ‘World Toilet Day’

We can thank ‘World Toilet Day’ for reminding us to keep a lid on it — the toilet, that is. In Feng Shui, water symbolizes wealth, abundance and career. From the perspective of this tradition, it’s bad enough to flush money down the drain, so covering it lessens both the visual and symbolic impacts. And while we’re talking toilets, don’t forget to pour a bit of fresh squeezed lemon juice down the drain whenever you clean the house, as this will wash away any stale or stuck negativity.

Feng Shui News for November 16 – ‘Novem’

This may be the eleventh month on the Gregorian calendar but November actually gets its name from the Latin word ‘novem,’ meaning nine. According to Feng Shui, that number is the most powerful of all the single digits. When someone or something is surrounded by the vibrations of the number nine, they are believed to be infused with energies that will encourage them to reached their fullest potential. The number nine also symbolizes the ability to easily manifest health, happiness and prosperity. On this day, put nine coins of any denomination into a red envelope and place it under the welcome mat at your front entryway. This will bring much fortune and good luck right to your door!

Feng Shui News for Nov. 15th – ‘Clean Your Refrigerator Day’

Today’s advice is well worth repeating. It’s ‘Clean Your Refrigerator Day’ and Feng Shui says that a clean and well-organized refrigerator filled with an abundance of healthy foods also attracts wealth. As will stacking and rolling nine one dollar bills, tying them with a purple ribbon and putting them in the back of your refrigerator. This cure brings you cold, hard cash, but never put this wad in the freezer, as you don’t want your assets to do the same.
