Hope in the Year of the Ox

In the year of the Ox, be patient, optimistic and persevering.  2020 was simply awful for most people. The year elements were Yang Metal over the Yang Water Rat. Yang metal is strong metal like a sword, and in 2020 it sliced through our personal and global foundations. And the Rat scuttled and rummaged around, unearthing everything below the surface of our lives and our reason to be. On the negative side, we were shocked, devastated, lost loved ones, jobs, homes, our direction, and control of our lives. On the positive side, many of us were forced to shift our …

Laughter Boosts Feng Shui

Laughter boosts feng shui. Joy, happiness, smiles, motivation, enthusiasm, all fill the space around you with positive energy. But who feels like laughing when overloaded with the concerns of daily life? Yet it is during challenging times that a dose of laughter can uplift the spirits, strengthen the immune system, relieve pain and lower stress levels. It also tones up body organs such as the heart, lungs and stomach, exercises the muscles, and stimulates production of the body’s natural painkillers and feel-good hormones. Negativity attracts more negativity. It makes the space around you heavy and dense, and it contracts and …

What Feng Shui Is Really All About

This is a much-asked question. Quite simply, feng shui changes the energy in your surroundings, making it healthy, balanced and free-flowing. People absorb the energy that swirls around them. Good energy promotes a sense of overall well-being, optimism and motivation, and a boost of positivity to all aspects of their life. It helps to bring a person back into balance, usually with more vitality, a different perspective on situations, and often a new direction in their lives. We all know that if we feel negative, things go wrong for us, and when we feel good, things start working for us. …

Year of the Rat Energy

25 January 2020 – 11 February 2021 A year is made up of a mix of elements. In 2020 we have Yang Metal over Yin Water Rat. Three different energies: Metal, Water, Rat. There is much significance attached to the different elements, for the world, economy, finance, relationships and more, but my particular interest is in health and well-being. After all, without these, what quality of life do we have? Metal is an energy that sheds the old, ready for the new, a bit like a tree losing its leaves ready for winter rest until spring brings new growth and …

Remove everything from your home that reminds you of lack, poverty, struggle, confrontation, or problems, even if it cost you a lot of money or it was a gift from somebody. Think about what message the item is giving you. If it’s a negative …

Sleep Well with Feng Shui

Good feng shui in the bedroom is essential.  We spend a lot of time in there, so it needs to be peaceful, calming, relaxing, balanced and free from objects that emit harmful vibes. So often we take our work, problems and electronic devices to bed with us. Nothing better than feeling the comfort of our bed while working away and sorting out our problems. But, as well as keeping our minds active when they should be winding down, we also subject ourselves to the harmful blue light of our phones, computers and televisions. Add to this the electro-buzzing around the …
