Inner Feng Shui – the Sanctuary Within

Feng Shui, the study of how to create human-friendly environments, observes that our surroundings are constantly making an impact on us. When you’re open and sensitive to energy, you are often the first to wilt in an unpleasant place. Your energetic sensitivity emphasizes the importance of knowing how to maintain your balance, especially in an environment that could cause you stress. When you cannot change your outer surroundings and there is nothing you can do about the discomfort of your body, it’s vital to have an inner sanctuary that holds your balance in place.

The Five Elements – Nature’s Design Team

Feng Shui views the five elements of Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal, and Water as the basic building blocks of life and observes that health and happiness are best “held in place” when all five are included in your home’s design. Because each element is expressed in a wide variety of ways, learning to work with them is like learning a new language. The more fluent you are, the richer the elemental dialog becomes between you and your surroundings.

Bringing the Office Home

One of the most popular trends these days in home design is the Home Office, and for good reason. Working from home eliminates the rush hour commute, gives you much more flexibility, and can save you significant amounts of time, money, and aggravation. For many people a year’s worth of work-related expenses, including transportation, clothing, restaurants, rent, and childcare, far exceeds the cost of remodeling and furnishing a home office.

Feng Shui and the Bedroom – Return to Sweet Dreams: Bringin Serenity & Sensuality back into the Room of Rest, Rejuvenation & Romance

Ideally, it’s a perfect combination of cozy nest, welcoming oasis, and romantic hideaway that reflects your personal tastes. Unfortunately, whenever bedrooms do not meet peoples’ needs for rest and rejuvenation, the quality of their waking life is compromised.

Feng Shui and Children’s Bedrooms

Most of the children’s bedrooms I see are neon bright and busy, busy, busy. It’s no surprise when the parents remark that their child never settles down. In almost every case, the child is being overstimulated by the bedroom decor. Feng Shui observes a direct correlation between the epidemic of hyperactivity in our children and the way their bedrooms are decorated. We need to tuck our children into the tranquil embrace of a cozy, serene bedroom that encourages them to calm down and get the rest they need.

Feng Shui and Tender Loving De-Cluttering

Clutter… it’s the stuff that annoys you every time you look at it or have to find something in it. It seems to “mate in the night” in closets, on tables, in corners – just about anywhere – and can multiply until you’re no longer able to navigate through the house without feeling irritated, confused, or overwhelmed. Like it or not you can feel clutter, the environmental equivalent of congestion, as much as you can see it.

Feng Shui and The Dining Room – Romancing the Good Life

The dining room holds enormous romantic potential. It’s one of the areas in the home that can be arranged to hold everyday romance in place. Taking pleasure in dining on a regular basis is one of the rewards of a balanced lifestyle. By slowing down enough to really dine, you invite a romantic quality to become part of your daily routine, one that transforms the act of grabbing a bite into a truly nurturing experience.

Creating a Personal Paradise Outdoors with Feng Shui

Feng Shui, the Chinese system of environmental placement, sees the world as completely alive with everything, including buildings, streets and property, interconnected in a dynamic relationship that affects everything we experience. Practicing Feng Shui outdoors nourishes the supply of Ch’i (vital energy) flowing around and into your home or workplace. This increase of vital Ch’i then nurtures and enhances important aspects of your life including your health, relationships, happiness, and prosperity.

A couple’s master bedroom is often an accurate reflection of their relationship. Many couples don’t realize that their bedroom can strengthen and nourish, or dampen and weaken, their marital happiness.

Love at First Sight – Feng Shui Meets Professional Organizing

One of the greatest challenges in our abundant world is to simplify and organize our possessions. A colleague of mine swears that her belongings mate in the night, especially the ones in storage.

The Retail Recipe for Great Feng Shui

On a recent visit to a new gift shop in town, I passed a woman who was just leaving with a big shopping bag in hand. “This place has great Feng Shui,” she beamed. My curiosity piqued, I asked her, “What exactly do you mean by great Feng Shui?” “Oh, you’ll feel it right away,” she said, smiling over her shoulder. “It’s the whole atmosphere.” And indeed, the store did have a very inviting atmosphere.

Season of Light

‘Tis the Season when short days and cool temperatures beckon us to spend more time indoors. Feng Shui sees the winter season as a time when the Fire element, represented by the sun, is low and needs to be strengthened or “stoked” in our homes to nurture our health and happiness. To do this, we warm and brighten our interiors with lighting and other Fire-related enhancements.

Feng Shui and Mirrors – Through the Looking Glass

Mirrors are a favorite enhancement in Feng Shui design. When well placed, they act as “windows” that bring light and beautiful views into the home. Mirrors can enhance your sense of safety by providing a view of the door when you can’t directly see it. Mirrors can also “correct” or camouflage architectural challenges such as poles, angles, and corners, as well as visually enlarge small areas like foyers and hallways that would otherwise feel very confining.
