Growing Up! Feng Shui Garden Tips


 

YOUR LOT… ACCORDING TO FENG SHUI
PORTION
REPRESENTS
This is where….
BACK 1/3
Your Future
Your wealth is stored
MIDDLE 1/3
Your Present
Situations develop
FRONT 1/3
Your Past
Opportunities begin

To make the chi -- or the life force energy -- of your garden, strong and stable:
             
  • Don’t “rescue” everyone else’s garden disasters - dead and dying plants have negative energy
  • Avoid plants with spikes, like cacti, especially near your front door
  • Choose plants that bloom at different times
  • Vary sizes, shapes, height, colours, etc.
  • Choose plants with rounded “money-shaped” foliage
  • Select plants,  trees and shrubs that bear veggies, fruit or nuts  - they have especially beneficial chi
  • Choose long-lived trees, shrubs and perennials over annuals and bi-annuals.

   
THINK VERTICAL! UP Plantings lift energy

  • Consider walls and fences as a canvas.
    Saves space, water, time, easy to harvest and enjoy!
    Great for symbolically raising sloping roofs
    Better air circulation and fewer problems with diseases, insects, slugs and mold.
    Can “Cure” poison arrows
      Adds texture and depth to straight lines
    ·Adds colour and fragrance
     

Valentine's Day and Feng Shui

Enjoy this guest blog post from Karen Rauch Carter, one of my Feng Shui teachers and author of Move Your Stuff, Change Your Life.

Oh Lordy, it's February again. For some people, this month pushes a lot of buttons because of that darned holiday called, well...you know...Valentine's Day. 
 I get some pretty sad and frustrated people calling in or sending me questions regarding how to feng shui to find that perfect someone. And when I say, "Let's start with you," there's usually a groan on the other end of the call. I hate to tell you, but you are one half of the equation, right? "Like attracts like" is the rule that's at work, so we must BE and exhibit the energetic qualities of what we want to attract.

How the heck do you do that? Well, I'd suggest going inward and identifying the "passions" you have in life and for life. Sounds like we're barking up the right tree with that, eh?

What qualities and values do you most highly regard? Is it love, peace, laughter, happiness, creativity, silliness? If you can start to figure all this out, then you've got the snowball rolling!

So, if you are sitting in the back of your own bus in life, I'd recommend putting yourself first and up front, so that special someone else feels that vibe and puts you in the front of their bus - as in being number on in their life!

Sorry, but it starts with you. These teeny but oh-so -important shifts will drive lovers either towards or away from you. So, get still and design a plan that creates the places in your home to hold the opportunities that you value the most. Then, as sure as you will build it, he (or she) will come your way.

What's going on in your home (just like that space I'm always talking about in "his" nightstand and on his side of the closet, etc.) is going on in your life. So try this new feng shui twist on relationship-building and build a shrine to these qualities with symbols, books, colors, or whatever else makes you connect to them somewhere in your home (why not the relationship gua of your bedroom for this???) and see what shows up?

This is part of what we worked on in my live Love and Abundance Workshop that I just did last month, so if you want to work through this process with me, feel free to get this program...

What is wrong with this picture?

From a Feng Shui perspective, Holly's desk is not 'in command' and she is not open to new opportunities because her office door doesn't swing open fully. Sadly, Holly neglected to subscribe to receive Feng Shui E-News from Fine Art of Intention Feng Shui... and she missed out on the opportunity to attend workshops on Vancouver Island, British Columbia, and receive helpful tips and information to help grow her business and improve her life.

Don't be like Holly!

Feng Shui for Every Body


Contrary to popular belief, Feng Shui (pronounced ‘fung schway’) … the 4,000-year-old art of placement … isn’t about decorating! It is about creating a calm and energetically nourishing living space. When the feng shui of a home is balanced, people who live in the home have a better chance of achieving personal balance. Here is one perspective on how your home can affect your health:

Each part of our home corresponds to different parts of our bodies. If you are suffering from aches and pains, alleviate some of the trouble by making adjustments to the appropriate area of your home. This may seem like a fanciful notion, but you could experience immediate relief as a result.

In the practice of Feng Shui, your home – and each individual room – can be divided into nine energy centers. These centres are called ‘guas.’ The nine centre combined form a ‘bagua’ (pronounced bah-gwa). The Health gua is located in the centre of the bagua, because our health – good or bad – affects all areas of our lives.

In addition to specific parts of our bodies, each area of the bagua is associated with certain colours, natural elements (fire, water, earth, metal, wood), and other features.

The Bagua Body Map
and How to Apply it to Your Home’s Floor Plan


PROSPERITY

Hips, Back, Joints
And Bones

FAME & REPUTATION

Eyes & Heart
(Ability to see things in the proper perspective.)


LOVE & RELATIONSHIPS

Abdomen & Organs

FAMILY

Feet
(Step forward through life.)

HEALTH

Entire body
(Overall health. To strengthen all body parts and all areas of home.)




CHILDREN & CREATIVITY

Mouth, Teeth &
Respiratory System
(Speaking up for yourself)


SKILLS & KNOWLEDGE

Hands
(Ability to handle life situations)

CAREER &
LIFE PATH

Ears, Blood,
Kidneys & Bladder
(Ability to hear others and listen for opportunities)


HELPFUL PEOPLE & TRAVEL

Head
(Having a clear head
to face challenges)

                                                                                   
--------------------- Door ------------------------- Door------------------------- Door -------------------

1)    Draw a floor plan (to scale) of the main level of your home or a single room.
2)    Using a highlighter, divide the home/room into 9 equal-sized sections.
3)    Locate the exterior wall where the main entrance to the home/room is located. Note that this is the entrance that was designed by the architect to be the formal entrance. It may not necessarily be the door you use most often.
4)    Apply the Bagua Map (above) to your home following the guide above. Write the names of the corresponding Life Sectors on your floor plan.

EARS: Health issues relating to the ears, blood, kidneys and bladder are linked to the Career gua. Revamp this space if you are suffering from hearing loss or have difficulty being heard. If people accuse you of being in denial, check this area for any grime, squeaky hinges or stuck doors and windows.

HANDS: If you are experiencing difficulty with your hands and fingers, arthritis or insomnia, check the Skills and Knowledge area. Excessive clutter could be aggravating problems. Check this area if you are having difficulty handling aspects of a relationship or keeping in touch with friends.

FEET: Check out the Family gua. This area is linked to your ability to stand on your own two feet. Dying plants, clutter, excessive heat or an overload of electronics can trigger anything from athlete’s foot to plantar warts. Trouble in the Family gua can make it difficult for you to move forward in life.

SKELETAL SYSTEM: Conditions that affect your hips, thighs, lower back, pelvis and bones are linked to the Prosperity zone. Check this space if you have hip or back pain. The Prosperity area is also linked to your ability to stand up to bullies. Too much heat, light or electrical equipment here can compound all of these health issues.

EYES & HEART: Problems with the eyes, heart and small intestine are linked to the Fame area. Examine this area if you suffer from poor eyesight, glaucoma, conjunctivitis or heart problems. Cloudy mirrors, leaky faucets and grime are common manifestations of eye trouble. If you have difficulty being recognized for your contributions, you might also want to examine the Family area for trouble.

ABDOMEN: Health issues relating to the stomach, intestine, spleen and genitals are linked to the Relationship gua. Keep this space free of rickety furniture, faulty electrical equipment and drafts. Such problems can be manifested as ulcers or colitis. You should also attend to the relationship gua if you are emotionally incapable of experiencing intimacy.

MOUTH, TEETH & RESPIRATORY SYSTEM: If you have mouth/lip sores, dental problems or asthma, check the Children & Creativity gua. Excessive heat and light can irritate such problems – so can leaky ceilings, faucets, toilets and clutter. On an emotional level, creative blocks and shyness are related to this area.

HEADS & LUNGS: Headaches, brain injuries, mental problems, lice and dandruff are all linked to the Helpful People gua. Check this area for junk, leaks and excessive heat or cold. If you have a drain in this area, keep it covered when you are not using it. On an emotional level, problems with authority figures can also be addressed by making feng shui adjustments here.

OVERALL HEALTH: If you are suffering from a serious health matter that affects every part of your body – such as major organs, cancer, HIV, cystic fibrosis or multiple sclerosis, you need to examine the very centre of your home – the Health gua. Keep this area open, spacious and airy. Walls, staircases, columns and other obstructions can cause problems here. Paint these obstructions natural earth tones – like honey, chocolate or pumpkin. Cover stairs with a soft carpet and place a square rug at the top and bottom of the staircase. Hang a round, faceted crystal at the top of the stairs. If you have a column in this space, hang mirrors at eye level on all four sides of it. (To give the illusion of it disappearing.) If the column is round, encircle it with a reflective material to give the same illusion.
