Feng Shui Mistake – Using red to activate your fame and success

Monday, April 30th, 2012

Careful! Are you sure you’re not actually inviting arguments and heart disease?

The Compass School is recognized by Classical Feng Shui and is very powerful – but only if the calculations are true to the authentic Compass School, and only if they are performed correctly. Once again, you must be on guard against the over-simplified “New Age” version that rigidly assigns life situations (wealth, relationships, fame for example), as well as elements and colors to each direction without taking into consideration any other factors.

For instance, according to this New Age Compass version, the north direction is associated with career; northeast is related to knowledge; east is family and health; southeast is wealth; south is fame; southwest is relationships; west is children and the northwest is helpful people. According to the Lo Shu Bagau used by the Compass School, north is associated with the water element. Because of this, many New Age Feng Shui practitioners will recommend that everyone should always put a water fountain or fish tank in the north part of their home to tap into “career” luck. This is devastatingly – dangerously – oversimplified. As we saw earlier in Mistake #1, putting water in an improper area without considering timing, unseen energies, or planetary influences can trigger car accidents, sickness, and loss of funds and go against the very nature of placing water there in the first place – that of increasing prosperity! The southwest area is associated with love and relationships according to the New Age Compass School. So if you’re looking for a new “love” to come into your life, practitioners of this school will tell you to place boulders in the southwest of your garden, or to place a pair of decorative geese or crystal hearts in the southwest area of your bedroom or home. This overly simplified new age version of the original Compass School does not take into consideration the placement of elements according to the movement of time. For example, if you place those crystal hearts in the southwest of your house during a month with certain planetary influences, it won’t be love you attract, but instead the potential for sickness.

Untrained use of the Lo Shu Bagua can set these “everyone should always” traps in every area of your home! For example, if you’re looking for fame, then New Age Compass School practitioners might tell you to paint the south part of your home bright red because it is related to the fire element. But what about the interplay of energies and timing? What about the natal chart of you and your home? What about the surrounding property? All these factors can dramatically change the quality of the energy in that southern area. In fact, they can change the energy pattern so dramatically that instead of inviting fame and success, painting your southern room red could actually usher in arguments, eye ailments … even heart disease.

How is Classical Feng Shui different than other types of Feng Shui?

Tuesday, April 24th, 2012

Authentic or Classical Feng Shui has been around for thousands of years in Asia but came around to the west about 20 years ago. The most popular version of Feng Shui being practiced in the west is a New Age version that has become so over-simplified from science into interior decorating, color therapy, clutter clearing, and placing Chinese cultural objects to ensure good luck. The New Age version is not only frivolous, it is in many cases dangerous. (See our free report, “The 5 Biggest Feng Shui and Vaastu Mistakes Most People Make… And How to Avoid Them“).

By contrast, Classical Feng Shui applies well-defined scientific principles and energy theories to individual situations. Instead of dangerous “one size fits all” recommendations, clients receive personal analysis of their unique interaction with their specific environment. That’s vital, because every structure has its own energy map that determines how it will interact with an individual over time. To assess this, Classical Feng Shui uses a sophisticated compass and complex mathematical formulas and calculations to examine both the physical environment (location and orientation of the building and its relationship to surrounding environmental features) and the quality of energy affecting a building in a specific time period. And by doing both, Classical Feng Shui helps you avoid making mistakes and missing valuable opportunities.

Classical Feng Shui – Is Your Office Sabotaging Your Success?

Thursday, April 19th, 2012

The way your office is set up, where you place your desk, the colors you use, and even the lighting all have an effect on how you do business. Authentic Feng Shui can help you clear away negative energies — and energy blockages — that can sabotage efficiency, productivity and profitability. Advanced Classical Feng Shui formulas can even forecast where and when risks and opportunities might arise and what you can do to assure the greatest possible benefit.

While these calculations and even basic furniture placement are tied to the unique energy makeup of you and your office, these three general principles can help you create a supportive work environment.

1. Clear away objects that sabotage energy flow. Clutter isn’t just messy; it’s a magnet for attracting negative energy. If your desk and floor are scattered with unfinished projects, papers, files and mail, energy can’t flow freely. Trapped energy either goes stagnant or builds up into a force that can make you feel jittery, overwhelmed, irritable, fatigued or depressed. In such an environment, you’ll find it’s hard to concentrate and complete tasks. Problems build up, creativity suffers and conflicts arise. Every item should have a designated home where you can find and easily access it. Take time to organize your files and use them so you don’t have to keep pieces of paper “in sight” just so you’ll know where they are. Clear the jumble from your desktop so that your eye — and the energy in your space — have calm places to rest. And don’t forget the jumble on your computer: regularly clear away unnecessary email and files.

2. Reposition your desk. A sizable and neatly arranged desk attracts power and confidence. As a general rule, the best position for a desk is in the far right corner diagonally opposite from the door with your back to the wall or catty corner to the wall. In addition, try to avoid these three situations:

  • Don’t put your desk in a direct line with the door. The energy coming from another office or hallway can cause discomfort. You may find yourself unable to concentrate and want to leave your desk.
  • Don’t sit with your back to the door. You should have a clear view of the room and office door. This gives you energetic control over the space which, in turn, attracts energies that support you in feeling capable, relaxed, and confident.
  • Don’t sit at a desk that places you directly under an exposed overhead beam. That beam can concentrate energies in the area right over your head. If you spend eight or ten hours at your desk, you could find you suffer from headaches and you could literally feel you are “under too much pressure.”

3. Balance your office lighting. Lighting doesn’t just affect your eyes or even your mood. It also affects the energy in your office. Light – even sunlight – that is too bright creates an excessively “yang” energy that can cause agitation, conflict, and difficulty concentrating. By the same token, light that’s too dim creates an excessively “yin” energy that can produce fatigue and make it difficult to project a confident, capable presence. Feng Shui principles help balance your office’s lighting so that it’s bright enough to energize the space without disrupting harmony and concentration. Consider using natural spectrum light bulbs — they provide a more balanced light than traditional bulbs. Outfit windows with blinds that can filter and direct sunlight to prevent harsh shadows and glare. Consider desk lamps — they give you more flexibility in adjusting your overall lighting and then help balance the glare your computer screen can produce.

These three Feng Shui principles will go a long way toward helping you weed out “success sabateurs” that can choke off prosperity at work. But, as always, your own horoscope interacts with both the horoscope of your office and the energies flowing through it. If you make the changes suggested here but find that problems still persist – deals or promotions fall through, cash flow stalls, you can’t seem to get things done — a consultation with a Classical Feng Shui practitioner can quickly reveal the underlying causes and help you restore a positive energy flow.

Feng Shui Mistake – Believing any home that doesn’t face east or northeast spells doom for your family.

Monday, April 16th, 2012

Careful: According to Vaastu (Indian Feng Shui), beneficial energies flow from those directions, but your own ideal home might face a different direction.

As a Feng Shui and Vaastu practitioner, I’m often called on to help clients who are considering a move to find the most auspicious home. Thanks to many of the Vaastu books on the market today — and even some Vaastu consultants – many clients come to me convinced that the only directions a house should face are north, east or northeast. Any other directions and the occupants are doomed and have “bad vaastu!” Again, this is pure nonsense and shows a lack of understanding of the science behind Vaastu.

While positive energies certainly emanate from the north, east, and northeast, it doesn’t mean that your house must face these directions. In fact, I had one client whose house faced east and it couldn’t have been a worse orientation for her. The fact is that your home doesn’t have to face one of the so-called “good Vaastu” directions for you to take advantage of the energetic rays coming from these directions. In other words, look for a home with plenty of windows located in the north, east and northeast areas.

Vaastu Shastra – How Are You Living?

Thursday, April 12th, 2012

I’ve mentioned in previous issues that our environment directly influences up to 1/3 of the luck and opportunities that come our way. However, our destiny and fortune are affected by factors other than our homes – our destiny and our own actions also play a role in what we attract in our lives.

That’s why how we live in a home is just as important as the home we live in which is why Vaastu Shastra (Indian Feng Shui) gives us guidelines for living a life of balance. Vaastu means “abode” and Shastra means “knowledge.” Vaastu comes from the same vedic wisdom as yoga, meditation, and ayurveda.

If our heaven luck or destiny is against our favor or we’re experiencing bad karma, then we need to use our man luck and the virtues within us to minimize the impact. The things we do today contribute to our destiny tomorrow. Vaastu advises us of 10 daily observances for creating good karma and leading a positive life; as you sow so shall you reap

1. Non-violence through compassion (Ahimsa) This means abstaining from causing any pain or harm whatsoever to any living creature, either by thought, word, or deed. Non-injury requires a harmless mind, mouth, and hand.

2. Honesty and truthfulness (Satya) To always speak the truth even though it may be unpalatable. The old adage “the truth shall set you free” is universally applicable to all and unchangeable.

3. Non-stealing (Astheya) We should never encroach upon another person’s property or possessions.

4. Control of the senses (Brahmacarya) Keep focus on your goal and path by being fixed in your higher self recognizing that the lower urges and outside influences are not in your long term best interest. These two forces simply tantalize us with promises of a quick fix but ultimately leave us feeling empty, frustrated and waste our minutes, days and years.

5. Selflessness (Aparigraha) According to Websters, selflessness means having little or no concern for oneself, especially with regard to fame, position or money. It’s easy then to think, who’s going to look out for me but when you give you actually receive so much more.

6. Cleanliness (Sauca) This means we should be clean both internally and externally. Our mind, heart, intelligence, body, clothes, home, place of work, place of worship, and even our personal and business dealings – all should be clean. “Cleanliness is next to Godliness” may be a homely proverb but it has deep wisdom for those interested in spiritual life.

7. Contentment with what you have been given (Santosha) The mind is always hankering and lamenting for our objects of desire. The way to remain satisfied and peaceful is to practice gratitude in every aspect of our life and to constantly think of the welfare of others. (Whenever you find yourself complaining, thinking your cup to be only half empty, take a moment to pause and count your blessings and you will find that “your cup runneth over”.)

8. Austerity (Tapas) Sometimes we have to enforce self-restraint or undergo some type of strict discipline to achieve a higher goal of happiness. In order to win a gold medal, you have to put in the practice.

9. Study of Spiritual Truths (Swadhyaya) The ancient texts emphatically urge that the human race use their intelligence to distinguish spirit from matter, ie. the eternal from the temporary.

10. Surrender to the will of the divine (Ishwara pranidhana) Knowing that there is a loving higher power or divine force that exists, frees you from the weight of life’s burden. Realize that we are not the ultimate controllers of our situation and although an event may seem like a setback now, ultimately it is for our benefit. An example is that diamonds are formed under great pressure that makes a worthless piece of carbon into a most valuable gem. The trick is to receive the lesson in that way and understand that in the greater scheme of life, everything is as it should be. Don’t worry, if you’re having problems with this one – it takes lifetimes to surrender and get this right.

We all have such busy lives, it can be overwhelming to think of adding even one new “to do” to our schedule. But far from adding to your stress, following or even simply being mindful of these 10 daily observances can fill you with peace even on the most chaotic or challenging day. Using these observances to keep your life in balance is like depositing great sums into your spiritual bank account. Peace attracts more peace, contentment attracts more contentment, compassion attracts more compassion: you truly can transform every day into a sacred day – a holy day! And as you do, you create an internal energy — “man luck” — that is so powerfully positive it can defuse even bad “heaven luck” or karma.

This holiday, invite peace and compassion into your heart. Combine this with harmonious “earth luck” and you – and everyone you invite into your home – can enjoy a surge of energy that helps attract prosperity all year long.

Is the Color of Your Purse Draining Your Wealth?

Tuesday, April 10th, 2012

We’ve all heard that Capital One commercial: “What’s in your wallet?” However, if you’re interested in attracting wealth, a more important question is “What color’s your wallet?” And now, for the first time, I’m offering a phone consultation designed expressly to use color and some other secrets to help Energize Your Money Magnet. (I’ll tell you more about this in just a moment.)

I love beautiful bags! If I didn’t care about my finances, I’d go ahead and buy myself a beautiful red bag I just saw at Neiman Marcus. However, while the price of the bag itself wouldn’t have ruined my finances, that red color might have. So, instead, I’ve just bought a new green purse and a deep chocolate-colored wallet. Why? For my particular birthdate and the planetary influences in my home, the energetic vibrations of these colors act like money magnets for me. I sometimes carry a different-colored bag and wallet, too, when my Feng Shui “energy forecast” shows the chance of money loss. These other colors can blunt the impact of these negative energies and help me hang onto my money.

Should you run out and buy a green purse or a chocolate wallet? Absolutely not – unless you have the very same forces at work in your natal chart and home as I do. If you don’t, these same colors could actually weaken you financially — without your even being aware of it.

Everything in the universe carries an energetic vibration. This vibration can be quantified as a particular number. Different number combinations attract different types of energy which we experience as good fortune or bad money luck. The good and bad combinations depend on how the numbers that represent the energetic pattern of our natal chart interact with the numbers that represent our interaction with the world – e.g., the vibrational value of colors, directions, and other elements of our environment.

Why risk bad money luck?

Your wallet or purse is at the center of your daily financial life. Their color interacts with you directly and energetically!! Every time I am tempted to think that this is “just a little thing,” and go ahead and carry a bright red purse, I quickly see my luck turn and am reminded of just how real – and how powerful – color energies are.

Many New Age Feng Shui consultants will tell you carry a color that is the same as your Gua number. Not true – and this could actually drain wealth. Other New Agers say to carry your money in a red or blue purse. One consultant even sells red and blue purses! Well, there is just no such thing as “one size fits all Feng Shui,” and without knowing how red and blue will impact you energetically; you could be risking downright disastrous results.

Could you forego a wallet or purse and just put your money in your pocket? Sure, but why not take the opportunity to manipulate the color of your money holder to help lessen losses as you attract prosperity?

Take advantage of a mini consultation for Energizing Your Money Magnet

Helping you align your purse or wallet for prosperity is so important to me that I’m going to do something I’ve never done before and offer a mini Money Magnet telephone consultation. Sign up now and I’ll give you a phone consultation that reveals:

–The very best Money-Magnet color for your own purse and wallet (and if you’re married – the best colors for each of you!).

–How to energize your money magnet even more by carrying your own unique “lucky” amount of money. For a friend of mine, the amount is $48, while for her husband carrying $11 seems to bring extraordinary flows of good fortune.

–How to energize money luck — simply by reorganizing what’s in your wallet.

What Your Home Reveals About Your Life

Friday, April 6th, 2012
Your personal energy field is constantly interacting with your surroundings. Nowhere is the reflection of your inner life revealed more clearly than in your home. The fascinating thing is that by changing the outer reflection — how a room looks and feels, for instance — you actually have the power to change how you feel physically, emotionally and spiritually. In turn, more robust inner energy reaches out to attract good fortune for finances, health and relationships.
Plus, each area of your home corresponds to a specific area of your life.  So, by making changes in specific rooms you can actually bring about change where you feel you need it the most.  Let’s look at some examples:
Front entrance
Your home’s front entrance symbolizes how you present yourself to the world.  A welcoming entrance can help attract good fortune into your home – and your life. If your front entrance is neglected or messy, however, it can actually repel good fortune, success and overall well-being. So take a look!  Make sure there are no obstacles that one has to walk around to enter your home. This could symbolize obstacles arising in your life. Also make sure your front door doesn’t stick — this reflects a life that is stuck. Keep your front entrance fresh, tidy and well-maintained and you’ll create energy that supports a sense of expansion and feeling welcomed in your world.
Bedroom
Your bedroom symbolizes the way you perceive your inner self. This room is your personal sanctuary where you go to regenerate and take rest at the end of the day.  It is also where we go to reconnect with our partners. This room should be free from any distractions and disturbances.  If you suffer from low self-esteem, check to make sure your bedroom is not too dark. Instead, use lighter colors and perhaps introduce full spectrum lighting which mimics the sun’s natural rays. At the other extreme, your bedroom may be too bright. This can reflect an inner sense that you are always too busy to take time for yourself. If this is the case, introducing warm colors and using soft curtains to take away some of the harshness and brightness can give the bedroom more of a sanctuary feel – which in turn will easy the rush and busy-ness you feel in your life.
Kitchen
According to Vaastu (Indian Feng Shui), the kitchen is considered the stomach of the home. While you never want a messy, cluttered kitchen, a kitchen where there is little food or where the food has gone stale can reflect a life where finances are tight and there is little gathering or celebrating with others. Is your refrigerator well-ordered and stocked with fresh, nutritious food? Is the kitchen bright, clean and well-organized? Take a look – because the more you do to make your kitchen into a room where it’s a pleasure to prepare and eat healthy food, the more you do to create a life that nourishes you and your family physically, emotionally and financially.
Bathroom
Do you hold onto the past?  Do you hold grudges?  Is there a toxic relationship you just can’t let go? Is there a painful memory you can’t get over or someone you can’t forgive?  Take a look at what’s going on in your bathroom! This room symbolizes your ability to release what no longer serves you. So, start with what’s stored in the bathroom – get rid of old cosmetics, outdated medicines and anything that is no longer needed. This can energetically help you release things from your life that are not serving your best interests. Cleaning a bathroom helps too because the simple act of cleaning helps with renewing and purifying yourself.
Make sure the plumbing in your bathroom works correctly since water represents your emotions.  For instance, if you are feeling emotionally constricted, you may find that your sink backs up.  An overflowing toilet could mean you might have repressed feelings.  A leaking faucet could mean a constant drain on your emotions.
Truly, your home mirrors how you feel about yourself and how others perceive you. However, it’s a two-way mirror! Changing the energy in particular rooms can reflect back and change your inner life, too.

Classical Feng Shui: How Much of Your Success is Determined by Your Environment?

Wednesday, April 4th, 2012

In Asian countries, it is believed that there are three types of luck. Each of them affects one-third of your life; together they rule your fortunes. These three forms of luck are:

* Heaven Luck

* Man Luck

* Earth Luck

Heaven Luck:
This is the luck we are born with. It can be described as fate (or karma) and it is set at birth. The family into which we are born, our place of birth, our innate character and our destiny are all given to us by Heaven’s will. We cannot select our parents or change our families. Our destiny marks out our potential — and luck is the means to realizing our potential. Luck is an invisible force that can seem to make someone’s life difficult at every turn or amazingly easy. We’ve all known people who seem to have “the Midas touch” where everything they do turns into happy accidents that lead to success. This Heaven Luck — good, bad, or so-so — is often considered to be karma, reflecting actions we have performed in the past – either earlier in this lifetime or even before then. Because Heaven’s luck is connected to our destiny or fate, it is a part of our luck that may be beyond our control and that perhaps certain events or situations are meant to take place in our life.

Man Luck:
This is the luck we achieve through our hard work, education, perseverance, character, virtues and good deeds. We have tremendous influence over the quality of our Man Luck – and therefore our lives – through our thoughts, words and actions. By making good choices, continually gaining knowledge, and maintaining a positive mental attitude, we can fill our life with the “good” energy that attracts good luck and success. Our character and knowledge not only affect the near-term success of our endeavors, but also ultimately shape our destiny. In essence, we are always creating our future and fortunes with the choices we make today.

Earth Luck:
This is the luck we “absorb” through our environment. Unseen energies are believed to exist in our environment. Some of these energies are either beneficial, enhancing our prosperity and health, or negative, creating obstacles and bringing about misfortune. Thus, where we live and work has a direct influence on the opportunities and luck that come our way. Through Feng Shui and Vaastu, we can actually use the energies in our environment to help us succeed in our endeavors. By understanding how these energies interact with us, we can consciously and intelligently adjust our surroundings to bolster our good fortune and protect us from misfortune.

Take Greater Control of Your Destiny!

You have a great deal of control over both Man Luck and Earth Luck. Earth Luck is the easiest to change by manipulating environmental influences to attract good opportunities. Improving Man Luck requires personal discipline and can be harder to change. However, Feng Shui and Vaastu can help you change the intensity and the degree of ups and downs you experience in life, making it easier to maintain a positive mental attitude and make good choices. In fact, used correctly, Feng Shui and Vaastu can – by modifying your environment — modify periods of bad luck so that misfortunes are minimized while good luck is magnified so it has the power to bring stunning success.

Imagine having so much power over two-thirds of your luck! Plus, improving your Man Luck and Earth Luck can actually improve your Heaven Luck: even if you were born into a situation that places you at a disadvantage, using Feng Shui and Vaastu to enjoy good Man Luck and Earth Luck can change the course of your destiny — helping you attain a life of true abundance.

Feng Shui for Troubled Times

Monday, April 2nd, 2012

Authentic Feng Shui balances both visible and invisible energies. This is a critical difference from hobbyist or “do it yourself” Feng Shui that concentrates on changing what is visible about your environment — the arrangement of furniture, for example. In contrast, a professional practitioner of authentic Feng Shui also manages the powerful unseen energies in an environment and this is how it is possible to bring about almost miraculous results.

Still, with the economy pumping so much uncertainty and anxiety into the environment, it’s important to do all you can to create a supportive and protective environment. If you can’t immediately tap the expertise of a professional Feng Shui consultant, here are some common-sense ways to address — and improve — the visible energies in your home or office.

1. Create a clean and orderly environment. With all that’s going on in the outside world, it’s smart to make your interior world as stress-free as possible, and that starts by removing all visible signs of clutter, unfinished tasks, disorder and disrepair. There’s no need to put on white gloves and spend every spare moment cleaning. However, the cleaner and clearer your rooms, the better air currents — and energy — will flow. As a result, you will feel calmer, safer and more productive. The reason is that everything, from a piece of paper to a dirty pot in the sink, has an energetic vibration. When there are too many objects in a room, there is simply too much vibration. This makes it difficult for you to concentrate and can leave you feeling anxious, pressured and cranky.

2. Lighten your rooms — and your mood. With so much bad news coming at you from every direction, it’s easy to feel down and depressed. Did you know that spending too much time in dark rooms can actually contribute to depression, aching bones and other ailments? Let the sunshine in! Sunlight actually stimulates the optic nerve and tells the brain whether to produce serotonin (the wake-up, feel-good hormone) or melatonin (the time-to-sleep hormone). Sunlight is also a natural disinfectant that warms, brightens, and kills mold, mildew and germs. Light is a yang (vibrant) energy and in these tough times you want to bring in all the light you can to tip the balance away from living in an overly yin environment. Add a skylight if you can! If not, pull back the blinds, clean your windows, and turn up the lights. Full-spectrum light bulbs are wonderful since they reproduce the quality of natural sunlight and its positive effective on your body and mood.

3. Make peace with your décor! Conflicting colors and patterns not only conflict with each other — they can put you in conflict with your environment. Their warring vibrations constantly jar your eye, making you feel anxious and irritable. Plus, constantly looking at conflicting colors and patterns will strain your eyes (creating fatigue and headaches) and, over time, put pressure on your liver. Headaches, anxiety and health issues are the last things you need: make it a priority to surround yourself with colors and patterns that are in harmony with one another — and with you.

4. An eyesore is an eyesore. Anything that you see in your environment that bothers you will eventually depress your immune system. Get rid of those eye sores: chipped dishes, torn clothing, frayed or stained furniture, etc. And if you have an “eye sore view” from your window, immediately hang sheer curtains to block the view while still filling your room with beneficial light.

5. De-clutter your mind. A cluttered home or business creates a disorganized mind. And a disorganized mind usually does not handle stress well, nor can you think clearly. Clutter literally clogs your home with energy that may cause depression and an out-of-control feeling. Not being able to find your things can subconsciously send the message that you’re failing. Sometimes you allow clutter simply because you are just too exhausted to do anything about it. The irony is that it is often the clutter itself that is inciting this feeling of fatigue. Free yourself from clutter so things can begin to open up in your home — and in your life.

Remember, what’s visible in your environment is always a manifestation of what’s going on inside. The good news is that you can also use this principle in reverse! When you feel inner turbulence, use that anxious energy to transform your external environment: clean, clear away clutter, brighten, and beautify! You’ll be amazed at the immediate changes you begin to experience in how your environment looks and in how you feel.
