Feng shui is all about creating flow, energy, finding balance and unstopping blockages. This is true for your personal space, your office, your home, and, well, you.. You have energy (or maybe you don’t) and that energy impacts the way the world responds to you in the form of career, prosperity, health, wisdom, love, and happiness.
Some might say feng shui is for the birds — but they’d be wrong. Birds are for feng shui! There are few creatures in the world that inspire the envy of man, but birds do. With their ability to soar and fly above the trees and among the clouds, it’s no surprise. They are loved for their beautiful, bright plumage and their sweet songs that remind us that winter will soon be leaving. We admire their faith and loyalty as many birds form tight loving bonds and many mate for life.
In feng shui, you can look at someone’s office and home and often see the level of success they enjoy. But can you take those same traits and apply it to something more personal, like your handwriting? Just like there’s a flow and movement that translate into qualities in your life, there’s flow of handwriting that can indicate – and even influence — personal qualities.
ADHD is a neurological condition that is marked by mental difficulties such as impulsiveness, disorganization, easy distraction, inattention and problems focusing or completing tasks. It can also be accompanied by hyperactivity and mood swings. Many adults have this and just chalk it up to being a disorganized person who can’t finish anything, but that’s far from the truth.
Success has a number of definitions. For some it’s a one hundred foot yacht anchored off the Riviera. For others, it’s a tidy nest egg for retirement. For some, success can range from finding a job, getting pregnant, kicking an addiction, or simply feeling like there’s a flow again in life and you don’t have to roll a boulder up a hill every day.
There is no doubt that without love and happiness in our lives, there is no wealth. Only when we have good relationships and harmonious feelings with our friends, family, spouses and partners, do we feel our happiest. It’s this happiness in our relationships with others that creates contentedness with life, ability to move smoothly up the ladder of success — and often means that we are rewarded financially and emotionally for that harmony.
Not since Madonna has anyone caused a stir in the world of pop music like Lady Gaga has. And with a name like Lady Gaga, is it any wonder? Her name, a reference to the Queen song, “Radio Ga Ga,” is herself a controversy and is referred to in the media both as a ground breaking artist and a shock value put on.
Everyone’s heard there’s strength in numbers and that certainly extends to feng shui, where pairs constitute the concept of double goodness. Think about anything good and you want seconds – like you do with chocolate cake, a second date with a special someone, or another prosperous opportunity. In feng shui, though, whenever there is something auspicious, such as a symbol, it’s even more powerful and potent when it’s used as a pair.
Water is one of the most important elements in life – and in feng shui. The presence of water is life-giving and in feng shui, it promotes wealth, prosperity and opportunity. We could not live without water, yet so many homes rarely have water anywhere on the property. Even a small fountain can create a feeling of calm assurance and promote wealth luck and financial advantage for the homeowner.
Ever wonder why you’re working so hard at feng shui and it’s not working for you? Maybe it’s because feng shui often works like a radio. When you’re trying to listen to 105.2 tuning the dial to 105.3 or 105 might pick up the station, but it won’t come in clearly, if at all, or it will have a lot of static.
