Interiors Reflect Who You Are and Where You Are In Your Life

As soon as we walk into someone's home or their personal office, we receive a feeling, a sense of who the occupant is. As you walk into a room, the owner's disposition and presence is not only felt, but revealed by the artifacts, or absence of artifacts, placed there, the color scheme of the room and the 'energy' in the air. All is palpable. We are not separate from who we are and how we display ourselves within our dwellings and workspaces. Our rooms 'talk volumes'.

Some rooms are quiet and peaceful. Other rooms are noisy and rambunctious. Some rooms are very carefully laid out and regimented, while someone else has rooms that jump and shout. A busy artist's dwelling will vary from an interior designer's home. If you are an exacting person and prefer supreme cleanliness and order in your life, your rooms will reflect this stance. If you are more easygoing and take the day as it comes, your house will reflect this orientation. If you are careless about your habits, tend to gather more than you use, your rooms reflect this sensibility. We can't escape who we are.
There is no right or wrong. Who you are and what is important to you, is expressed by how your interior rooms are displayed. If you are a great lover of books and learning, if you write and delve into subject matters, you may see books which are cascading around tables, upon floors, spilling over here, and there - a cacophony of voices talking to you.

Ultimately, how energy or Qi is expressed around you, is partly set into motion by how you design and live in your space. Other contributing factors are both the location and the site of your dwelling, the materials it is constructed from, geographical input, plus those internal Intentions you carry.

Some homes may appear impersonal, even cold, while other homes scream and laugh with activity. If you create a little chaos in your home, you can always pick it up, sort it out, and begin anew. It's the same with the cycles of the seasons, and cycles within a day - sunshine, followed by clouds rolling in, then rain and thunderstorms, followed by clear blue skies and a peaceful evening.

Qi is always changing, moving, going somewhere and creating directions. This is its definite action. When any of the four components are missing, then Qi is hampered. How do you want to direct your Qi? How do you personally want to direct the Great Qi? This is what Feng Shui is all about. -DIRECTING Qi to create Beneficial Outcome - Harmony, Balance, Beauty, and Peace. These are stellar Attributes which impact on all levels of our human existence upon the Earth.

What we create in our personal space affects not only ourselves and those who come into our homes and offices, but also affects our neighbors, the animals and plant life. We are ALL INTERCONNECTED! Supporting Beneficial Feng Shui in our homes and offices, building with Kan Yu, The Kindness of Nature as our guide, creating Beauty instead of retaining ugly areas in our cities and towns, are prime actions for promoting a better life experience for all.

Removing Negative Energy from Your Home - Create Personal Emotional-Mental Cleansing

We experience moments of stress and get confronted with life situations that require our utmost attention, stamina, and patience, or we end up feeling frustrated, anxious, agitated or angry. Life situations which fatigue us, frighten us, create unsettling energies, or create worry, panic, jealousy, and angst, can put us in a whirlwind of repetitive negative thoughts, emotions, and expressions. If we instigate conflict and negative emotional outcomes, we go into a spiral - worry, fear, anxiety, anger, jealousy, rage. This will, and does, lead to physical and mental imbalances. All negative energies impact not only upon our own environment but in turn impact other people, our neighbors, our community and ultimately the world.

Such is the 'butterfly effect,' the flapping of a butterfly's
wings in Nepal can create a larger effect across the seas. Negative drama impacts upon us and drenches our dwelling spaces.

Every hostile or unkind word, every conflict and aggressive behavior, unmitigated sorrow or depression, screaming and raging, every negative experience that occurs in your home or workplace, leaves a residue. This residue is often palpable and very tangible. Sometimes very extreme and dramatic things happen such as sudden death, physical abuse, suicide or murder. Try selling a house where any of these things happened. It can be a tricky proposition. The more negative drama, the more darkened one's environment becomes. Chi, The Vital Life Force, is impeded. Our Personal Chi is under attack. If this residual quality is not diffused, eliminated and transformed, it will continue to resurface and augment with even greater negative reality. In equal measure, the more dramatic the negative outlay, the more clearing away of these unhealthy energies is required.

A professional Space Clearing Expert can assist you, but you can also help yourself and begin cleansing your environment by taking some preliminary steps. 1) Open all the windows. Let in fresh air and natural light. 2) Burn strong incense, Tibetan or Indian, or use Sage or Chen Pi, Chinese Tangerine Peel, while reciting a prayer or mantra. Make the sign of the four corners of the Earth throughout your house. 3) Burn scented or unscented candles, if you are allergic to scents; light and place in each room. 4) Ring Tibetan bells throughout the dwelling including closets and start with the main outside entrance. Repeat a prayer or mantra as you do this.. 5) Play soothing harmonious music throughout the house. Tonal sounds are most helpful. Selections from Meditative Mind featured on YouTube are good. The higher the frequency the more cleansing power is being distributed. See 'Wipe Out Negative Thoughts and Emotions" from Meditative Mind. Tonal sounds are Cosmic tones and don't carry emotional attachments we give to particular musical pieces. 6) Clean and de-clutter your environment. 7) Place fresh flowers throughout the house. 8) Sit and meditate daily preferably early morning and before retiring at night. Prepare your body with a shower followed by a bath in Epson salts or Essential Oils. 9) Chant and pray throughout your day. 10) Practice Mindfulness. Maintaining your personhood and caring for your environment is essential for creating Peace, Harmony, and Balance.

Together we can bring Beauty and Peace into the world. Visit me on FB and upcoming audios on Youtube.

We are transitioning from a real Spring into the warmth of Summer. Everyone is eager to get their house plants finally outdoors, and to continue to labor of creating a glorious garden full of color, fragrant blooms and welcoming charm. Crocus, tulips, forsythia, Lily of the Valley and daffodils have made their presence. Now iris, azalea, peonies, lilacs, violets, geraniums, marigolds, roses usher forth. Spring means new beginnings. Summer is the burst of maturity. Our living space is enmeshed with our ability to be happy and healthy. What it reflects makes a statement about where we are at the moment in our lives.

Kan Yu, "Kindness of Earth", is Feng Shui's original name. Kindness of Earth by its name encourages us to live harmoniously with Nature. It is the primal ecological statement. Living harmonious with Nature draws into our worlds Balance, Harmony, Health and Happiness. The sun literally shines upon us. We rejoice as our plants are nurtured, the soil tended, all things made right. The quality of Environment Chi (Energy) affects us 100%. Good soil, clean air and water are essentials and enhance both our environments and our lives. The converse leads to confusion, dissipation, illness and loss. Trees, green shrubbery oxygenate and reduce toxic gases. Being in greenery raises your Personal Chi 100%, while dwelling indoors you may loose 30% to 70% of your Personal Chi.

Everyone wants Health and Happiness. The ancients prized them as qualities toward longevity. We also seek loving relationships and secured finances. We enjoy the thought of "stability". Creating a Feng Shui Garden can move you toward this goal. Build a flowering garden than will bloom year long. Plants chosen for their shape, color, texture, height, ones that attract butterflies, increases Beneficial Chi.

Gardens are outdoor rooms! As an extensions of the layout of your home as computed by the Ba Gua, gardens speak of your soul. Flowering gardens balance us and elevate our mind; these are documented facts from recent neuro-scientific studies.

Kan Yu is a tradition tied to the land. It operates on the principle that the earth's magnetic field forces and energy lines (ley) are alive, and they give color, shape, and size to the landscape. Feng Shui refers to the Earth's magnetic meridians as "Dragon Currents". ley lines. Subtle but detectable currents create energy patterns in, over and around the Earth. They are essential for the Earth's etheric structure and they serve a humanitarian purpose as well.

The aim of Kan Yu Feng Shui is to raise the cosmic currents, change and harmonize the environment, which in turn uplifts and benefits mankind and all life. 

Drawing from the Form and Compass Schools, you first need to know what the actual Earth Magnetic Directions are. This is crucial. Plants requiring full sunlight do not flourish in the North. Another example is, if you put a greenhouse in the North, which gets little to zero sun exposure, you will develop mold in your greenhouse. You can become ill from the mold and your plants will not thrive. Knowing the actual compass reading is essential. You also want to know these natural magnetic directions for the choosing suitable plants ,and you will need to analyze your soil, light and drainage.

Get a compass. Take your first reading from looking out from your front door. This is called "front facing". Wherever you have existing flower beds, or are planning to augment or create anew, you take a reading facing the area. Chart the outer property and see what's there.

Each direction correlates to the Five Elements which describe change. Scientifically it is accurate because Earth Magnetic Energies spread outward over the Earth. Depending in which hemisphere you live, qualities vary depending on the sun's proximity, planetary rotations, and other factors. Plants can stimulate the quality of the Element (Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal and Water) associated with each gua, area, by introducing the color, shape, and texture represented by its particular Element. East is green. West is white or cream. North is dark blue, black. South is red, pink, lavender, and all its shades.

 Added to this information are the Nine Squares, the Ba Gua. Standing in front of your property divide it into nine equal squares. See the diagram below.

Each gua relates to a Life Situation: a Correlation - is Wealth, Relationship Knowledge, etc, Color, Number, Family Member. Direction and so forth. 

Other auspicious environmental qualities include Earth Dragon which lies behind the house, or are the taller plants, grasses on rocks in the garden. which protect the shorter or smaller plants in front of them. Wood Guardians are the protectors placed on the left and right of the home entrance or to a garden. Facing the front of the house should be a Waterway. A road with slower traffic on it, may serve for an actual watercourse. The Golden Pond is the area right in front of your house. It is an opening which may gather good Beneficial Chi for you and your household. Taken together they pull inside your house the Chi which blesses you with good fortune.

Other important considerations in landscaping are 1) protecting your home with natural vegetation, topography and fences. Make certain the site is above a flood line. If it is not, use vegetation to secure the barriers. Create curved pathways instead of sharp lines or angles directed at the house. Create a threshold separating public from your private areas.. Hedges and Cyprus trees are natural dividers. Keep all vegetation healthy and well maintained. And yes, you can talk to your plants! They respond to kindness and soothing classical music. Make note of land formations, wet areas, sandy soil, shade, poor drainage, windy areas, nutrients, light quality. Sometimes the best spot for a garden is not one which you are choosing. 

Design your garden preferably a season before planting is appropriate. The soil needs time to mellow and settle. You will need to know which plants bloom in what colors, how tall will them become and what are their requirements of light, water, soil, nutrients and so forth. Garden design is intricate. Continuity is important. Your design and selections should compliment the house in structure, design and shape, as well as the environs. Regard the position the flowers and garden will be viewed from. 

Gardening the Feng Shui way can open new vistas not only in your garden but in your life! Enjoy the Beauty! Planting as Kan Yu directs us will uplift us and the Earth.

A Healthy Home

Everything you do, affects everything else. And everything you left undone, affects you.” -- LW

By Feng Shui standards “a healthy home” has fresh air flowing through its interior space, is free of toxic influences, and is balanced in its Yin and Yang Qualities. The first indicator for a healthy home is that the interior space is continually cleansed by Natural Energy Forces – sunlight and air. Two elements we cannot live without. Airing one’s house daily, weekly, monthly, with the turn of the seasons is important. Commonly, a house is aired in the spring however, regular airings are preferable. Once a day, fresh air brings vitality into a home or office. It becomes even more important to air your interior when there have been any emotional conflicts, illness, animal odors, accidents, or unwanted environmental influences such as smoke. If you are not the original owners of the property, there is always the energy from the predecessor which must be cleaned out particularly if there was a serious illness resulting in a death. If the property was formerly used by persons who cultivated great Qi, your cleansing will enhance these qualities by your sincere respect for welcoming Divine qualities into your environment. 

You want to increase the circulation of Qi in an indoor space that you may be allowed to breathe and everything in the interior space also breathes. If the design of the house or building is well executed, air flow will reach every corner, flow through every room, and cleanse and invigorate every area of the interior space. On the other hand if there is poor design, few windows or no windows, then creating interior flow is crucial. The house breathes in air just as your lungs take in air to sustain life. Air and light are important elements in living healthy and happily.

Clutter goes beyond a state of mess. You can be drowning in it! Are you too busy to breathe? Then you may have a major problem. Know this, Clutter is anything you don't like or love, anything broken and forgotten, anything not used, and anything which brings up unpleasant memories. 

If you have things pretty much in hand, you can fine tune your abode. If you are knee deep in confusion, start by clearing one top surface, like a table, bureau, buffet or desk. Make it orderly, polished and pristine. Keep this area as a magnet to help you focus and draw the "Beneficial Energies" you are striving to attract. 

Pick up things off the floor. Clutter on the floor is an impediment to the free flow of Chi which needs to happily circulate throughout your home -- from the outside world of Big Universal Chi, the macrocosm, into the small microcosm area of your home, Chi must flow, flow, flow! 

Take 20 minutes a day, as you can, to make strides. The holidays are a good time to clear away what is not useful to you, in order to draw in what you require. Clear your clutter, clear your mind and CREATE ANEW! 

Happy, Joyful Clearing! Remember, your positive attitude is a benediction as you clean and clear. So avoid feelings of resentment or being grumpy. You are blessing your home as you clear. For more information on Clutter Clearing, visit my website at
