Honor the photos! 
There’s no chance to refresh the images of family members who have passed, but you can change out the frames periodically and rearrange to switch the energy up.  If they’re sitting on a dusty shelf, hardly being noticed anymore then the energy in the space is being affected!  The key is to honor and appreciate the photos in the same way you would honor the people when they were living.  Pull the photos down, talk about the people in them with your kids, this helps keep the relationship alive even though they have passed. 

Picture

Use the bagua map to help you deliberately place photos:

The Roots/Family area (middle left) is all about ancestral energy that gives you a foundation to grow from.  Placing the photos in this area solidifies and honors the base that your ancestors provided you. 

The Wisdom/Guidance (front left) is all about calling in knowledge and support from higher places.  If you want to stay connected and get guidance from those who have passed, place the photos in this area.  They’ll be your guardian angels watching over all you do.
 
Let the images provide comfort:
Although I would avoid images of any family members in an adult’s bedroom (check out my article “Whose watching you?” to understand why), it would be okay in most cases to put some family and ancestor pictures in a child’s bedroom.  These help to remind the little ones that they are loved, supported and watched over always.  It also helps them feel like they aren’t alone in an empty room. 
 
Does this article have you thinking of where and how you keep these photos?  Tell me how in the comments section.

<![CDATA[5 Feng Shui Tips to Keep Your Space Fresh and VitAL]]>Thu, 02 Nov 2017 16:58:38 GMThttp://fengshuipathways.com/blog/5-feng-shui-tips-to-keep-your-space-fresh-and-vitalWhen’s the last time you switched things up in your house? I’m not talking about new furniture and décor, but just simply checking in with what’s there and trying something new for a while …

If you’ve ever been physically put out of commission by an injury or illness, you’re probably aware that resting and staying in one place for a while eventually starts to hurt.  At first the respite feels good, but over time your body gets sore and achy.  You begin to feel tired and sluggish even without any exertion. You don’t even realize how immobile you’ve become, until you actually start moving again.  When you finally begin to stretch and exercise again, you realize how stiff and stuck everything has become.   

The same thing happens in your house when everything stays the same. The space can feel comfortable and familiar, but eventually the energy gets slow and sluggish.  With little notice, the space no longer lifts you up.  Over time everyone in the space can become tired and disinterested.  Not only have your surrounding stopped nourishing you, but it starts to weigh you down. 

This is why renovating or redecorating can feel so good, because it shakes up that stuck energy that hasn’t been moving.  But these kind of big changes are not possible all the time, so it’s important to find ways to create consistent movement and occasional updates that will keep the space vital.  Here are a few ways to keep your space fresh and nourishing:


  1. Add a fountain or a kinetic sculpture – these bring movement and flow into any space
  2. Play music and dance around often for bonus points  – the vibrations will shake things up
  3. Move existing furniture into a new layout – to create a new flow through the rooms
  4. Change up décor monthly or seasonally in addition to big holidays – to bring in fresh energy
  5. Replace photos with recent images or change out the artwork – to bring the energy up-to-date

Keeping things the same old way can impact you, your ability to move forward, your day to day inspiration and creativity and so much more.  Simple, consistent changes in your space will help keep the energy vibrant, energizing every aspect of your surroundings and your life. 

Give these ideas a try and let me know how good it feels to switch things up.

<![CDATA[Hospital feng Shui?]]>Fri, 27 Oct 2017 15:21:22 GMThttp://fengshuipathways.com/blog/hospital-feng-shuiPicture
I spent the better part of yesterday in the ER with Steve.  He’s acquired some perfect storm of viruses including a nasty stomach bug and some version of pneumonia.  He’s home now, resting and recovering after a good dose of fluids and meds.  I’m grateful for the incredible care he got while he was there – everyone was amazing, from the valet guy to the receptionist to the nurses, aids, technicians and doctors.  But can I just say that hospitals SUCK!  And I mean that mostly in feng shui terms… 

Why is it that a place you go to find healing does just about everything to make healing challenging?  It was so stressful there, and I’m not talking about sickness or germs but plain old bad chi!  There were tiny uncomfortable rooms full of monitors, wires, buttons, bright lights
, and beeping things - hallways crowded with patients, staff, and equipment - loud noises from people yelling, equipment moving, constant ringing bells, and loud speaker announcements - no windows or even streaks of natural light from any source - winding and confusing hallways (I got lost 3 times - seriously who designs these places??) - and absolutely no cell service anywhere!

I had to leave Steve there to come meet the kids after school and as soon as I got home I threw all my clothes in the laundry, took a hot shower and smudged my shoes, coat and other belongings!   I needed to get that huge layer of hospital stress and “ick” off!  How can people heal in a place like that?  How can people work there day after day when the environment is clearly working against the very thing they’re trying to accomplish?    

The thing is, a few years ago, when my mom was in the hospital dying, the hospice staff moved us to a special private room where we could all be with her, day and night, until she passed.  It was like an extra-large hotel suite, with two hospital beds, comforting décor, couches, a small table, a refrigerator, tv, private bathroom, and walls of windows looking out over the NH skyline.  There were no loud machines, no constant interruptions from staff (they were there if we needed them), and no noises radiating from the hallway. 

There wasn’t any chance of my mom recovering here, but it was a peaceful place for her to pass and a supportive place for us and extended family to say good bye and grieve together.  We were so grateful for this space! But it makes me wonder why they hide it in reserve for the dying???  Why not implement some of these calming and healing elements into the rest of the hospital to support the people who can really benefit from it?! 

My experience yesterday was limited to the ER so I may have missed some of the hospital’s efforts to create a calm, comfortable and healing space.  I know hospice rooms, comfortable labor and delivery rooms, and healing gardens are becoming more prominent, but after yesterday, it seems like there’s still lots of (feng shui) work to be done!   If you've got any good examples of good hospital feng shui, share them in the comments below.  

Happy Feng Shui-ing!

<![CDATA[Oh What A Night ...]]>Thu, 19 Oct 2017 18:37:06 GMThttp://fengshuipathways.com/blog/oh-what-a-nightPicture
I wish I was writing about a fun night we had at a concert, or an amazing dinner we shared with friends, but no ...  I’m writing about a night consumed by our 7 year old's total meltdown: ugly, wailing, stomping, throwing-things-in-complete-distress meltdown!   It was awful! 
In her defense, she’s been battling a virus on and off for a couple of weeks.  I’m also pretty sure she’s in the middle of a growth spurt.  She stretches her mind daily in a French Immersion Program.  And she’s challenging herself physically this year in competitive gymnastics.  She’s smarter than her own good, can negotiate any deal to her advantage, and she’s witty in a wise-ass kind of way.  (Those last 3 tend to get her into most trouble with us, but I think they’ll serve her really well later in life!)  I believe she’s a truly sensitive soul, that doesn’t yet know how to filter all the input, and when she hits overload mode, she shoots daggers in defense.  Watch out!
In our defense, it was 9:30 at night!  We’re both worn down from the extra loads of barf-covered laundry, endless chauffeuring to birthday parties and sports events, and regular every day work.  And honestly, we were a little blind-sided by her quick shift from searching for a bookmark to full on mayhem.  Still, we could have handled it better too. 
Somehow we all survived the tears and tantrum.  We hugged it all out, vowed to try better tomorrow, and headed off to sleep.  It was a pretty restless night for everyone.  I was wide awake at 2am, and 3am, rethinking everything.  How could I have done better? Why didn’t I whip out all those holistic calming remedies I have stockpiled?  How can we help her find her own way back to calm?  And most importantly (and the reason for bearing the ugly truth in this blog post) … is there a feng shui fix that could support her better?
I really believe in the benefit of the feng shui work I do!  After years of working with it on my own and with clients, I’m convinced that health, happiness, well-being and success all around are intricately tied to the environment we spend our time.  So of course it’s one of the first things I considered.  Sadly, I think most people overlook their surroundings, and don’t see the potential for it as a cause or a cure.  Even though I know there are plenty of things that could be contributing to where my daughter’s at right now, I’m certain that small changes to our space can lessen the blow all around. 
By 4am I had given up on sleep and was sitting at the dining room table drawing out the floor plan for this house.  We’ve only been here since June, maybe I’ve overlooked something.  I even reached out to some Feng Shui colleagues for their thoughts.  (A neutral set of feng shui eyes is always helpful!)  In the end I see two places we can make adjustments that will support her:
First, this house is angled on a corner lot, and it can feel like the cars are driving right towards her bedroom.  Unsettling, right?  I’ve already put some corrections in place to soften this, but I think I’ll do a bit more work to alleviate that harsh chi.   Second, her room is a crazy mess!  When we moved in, I let the girls set up their own rooms.  Basically the 7 year old opted for the floor to be the “home” for most of her stuff!  I’ve been putting off stepping in for a while but the time has clearly come.  This morning we both agreed that a re-org with adult guidance would be helpful.  I know that limiting the stimuli in her space is key to helping her feel better.  (And maybe we’ll find the @#*& bookmark!!)
If you need me later, you can find me sorting ponytail holders, colored pencils and books alongside my daughterJ  Wish me luck!

<![CDATA[Identifying the Five Elements In Your Space]]>Thu, 12 Oct 2017 00:17:35 GMThttp://fengshuipathways.com/blog/identifying-the-five-elements-in-your-spacePicture
I did a consultation at a medical practice this week and after touring the space it was clear that a few of the challenges they were facing were directly correlated to an imbalance of elements in the space.  Overall it's a quick and easy fix but most people  aren't aware to pay attention to the elements.  Here's a bit about the elements and some ideas on how to start "playing" with them:

The Five Elements
According to Feng Shui, there are 5 elements that are found in the natural world:  Wood, Water, Earth, Metal, and Fire. Each element embodies a different aspect of chi. Bringing all of them into your space can make it feel more balanced, and reflect more harmony in your life.  Too much or too little of any of the elements can have a negative influence on a space, making it feel uncomfortable in some way. 

Each element has characteristic colors, shapes, materials, locations and directions associated with it.  A deep understanding of the balance of the five elements is best, but you can start to balance and enhance your own space by noticing how the elements present themselves around you, and considering how it feels after you add or change elements.


The Wood Element relates to our inner guidance and intuition. Its movement is upward (like a growing tree). It is represented in a space by:
  • plants (natural, silk or artificial ones)
  • furnishings made of wood
  • images of forests, trees, flowers or greenery
  • textiles derived from plant materials
  • anything taking the shape of a tree such as columns or stripes
  • designs depicting leaves or floral patterns
  • colors in the sphere of greens and blues.
When the wood element is excessive within a space, it can create a feeling of overwhelm, impatience and anxiety. When it is deficient in a space, it can be reflected in an inability to begin and cultivate new projects.

The Water Element is associated with our spirit and inner essence. Its movement is naturally downward (like a waterfall). It is represented in an environment by:
  • liquids of any type
  • structures or furnishings made of glass (including mirrors)
  • flowing and curvy shapes
  • water features like pools, fountains, wishing wells, lakes or ponds
  • images of water and water sources
  • darker shades of blue and black.
When there is too much water in a space, it can create a feeling of uncertainty and hesitancy in life areas. Occupants can feel overly emotional and weepy.  When there is too little water represented, it can result in neediness and lack of concentration.

The Metal Element relates to logic and intelligence. Its natural movement is to go inward or contract (as earth compresses into metal).  Metal is represented by:
  • Anything made out of precious metals including gold, silver, rod iron, pewter, copper
  • Rocks, gemstones and crystals from the earth (not manmade bricks or pottery)
  • Round or oval shapes
  • Colors in the white, light or pastel spectrum
  • Artwork, statues or sculptures depicting or derived from metal or stone
If the metal element is excessive, it can feel rigid and lacking creativity. If there is too little metal element present, things can feel disorderly and muddled.

The Earth Element is associated with the body. Its movement is standing ground and connecting (just as the earth is stable and permanent). It is represented in a space by:
  • Dirt, mud, potting soil
  • Earthenware including tiles, pottery, bricks
  • Images of landscapes and dessert settings
  • Square and rectangle shapes
  • Colors in the sphere of yellows, tans, browns and terra cottas
If the earth element is present to extremes, a space can feel slow, cluttered and stuck. If the earth element is lacking, it can feel flighty and ungrounded.

The Fire Element is reflective of our emotions. Its natural movement is outward (like fiery lava exploding). It is represented by:
  • Candles, lights, fireplaces, sunshine
  • Anything enlivened by electricity (televisions, computers, radios, telephones, lights)
  • Colors in the spectrum of reds
  • Shapes of triangles or pyramids
  • Any living being including humans, fish, animals
  • Anything made from a living beings including leather, fur or animal-print items
  • Artworks depicting light, fire or life
If the fire element is over-represented in a space, it can result in feelings of intensity and turbulence. If there is not enough fire represented in a space, it can feel cold, reserved and unwelcoming.

Play with the elements in your space:
Take a brief look around the room you are in. Can you assign each of the items you see into the category of element it most closely represents?  Do you notice that there is an abundance of some elements while others are not well represented?  Think for a moment about how you usually feel in the space, or how you notice people interacting. Is it stressful, cold, disorganized or hard to concentrate?  See if you can notice a correlation between the prominent feeling and which elements are present or lacking.

<![CDATA[Feng Shui for When You're feeling Stuck]]>Sat, 07 Oct 2017 02:38:19 GMThttp://fengshuipathways.com/blog/feng-shui-for-when-youre-feeling-stuckPicture
We've all been in that place where we feel like nothing is happening.  The place where you've worked and worked but haven't seen the results yet.  I was in this place a little bit last week.  I've worked really hard prepping and promoting my online program, but it just wasn't filling up like I wanted.  Also, I was working so hard on the program that I was hardly paying attention to promoting my other services.  Things felt stuck and stalled out all around.

Sometimes I get so caught up with the work and 'to do's' that I forget about my own skill set.  Hello!!!  Feng Shui is the perfect tool to get things kick started and running again.  So earlier this week  I stepped away from the computer and the list of things that felt critical to get done, and I spent some time taking my own feng shui advice.   For half a day I did the things I would tell any client to do.  And guess what?  It worked!!  By mid-week I had a rush of sign ups into my program.  And better yet, the phone started ringing with requests for my bigger services.  

Here are some of the things I did to get energy and opportunity flowing again:
  1. Turn on the outside lights and the lights above your front door (leave them on for a while)
  2. Dust, sweep and de-clutter inside your front entry way
  3. Open the front door with the intention of inviting in opportunity and prosperity
  4. Sweep the front steps and/or walkway, calling in fresh energy as you do
  5. Freshen up the front door area with new plants and/or a wreath

I gotta be honest that sometimes it still just doesn't make sense to me that these feng shui cures work better than good old fashioned sweat and tears!  But when the hard work isn't paying off like you think it should, it's time to try something else!  And the results have been convincing for me, time and again.  Give these tips a try and let me know how it goes in the comment section.

<![CDATA[Three Feng Shui Fixes For Rooms At the End of A Hall]]>Wed, 04 Oct 2017 14:21:50 GMThttp://fengshuipathways.com/blog/three-feng-shui-fixes-for-rooms-at-the-end-of-a-hallWhen chi flows into a space we want it to circulate through, being able to reach all areas and all occupants, but we don't want to plow anyone over as it moves through!  Sometimes building features and furniture placement can cause the chi to condense and speed up. One place this often happens is in a hallway where all of the chi is rushed into a narrow path causing it to be more forceful in its flow at the end of the hall.  This can be especially problematic for any rooms located right at the end of the hallway because the constricted chi tends to burst into that room in a non-healthy way.  (Think of water flowing through a hose - it gets tight and fast and then explodes out at the end).  Anyone working or sleeping in that room can be negatively impacted and might suffer from illness, anxiety, restlessness, an inability to concentrate, or more.  In feng shui we work to slow that chi down and lessen it's impact on the room and it's occupants.  Picture
We moved in June and my daughter's bedroom is now located right at the end of a hallway.  I knew right away I'd need to make some feng shui corrections to protect my daughter from the harsh flow of chi.  She ended up solving the problem before I got to it by hanging some decorations leftover from her birthday party.  When I first saw where she hung them I thought "ugh!  No way!  I'm not looking at those hanging there every day!"  But then I realized they were a great distraction for the chi.  (Sometimes kids are amazing in how intuitive they are about stuff like this.  I often see that kids have put a cure in place on their own for an energetic problem!)  I decided to let this cure stay in place.  Birthday streamers may not be your thing so here are some more aesthetically pleasing ways to soften the flow of chi as it moves down a hallway:
1) Consider a swirly patterned carpet runner
2) Hang a faceted crystal from the ceiling
3) Hang art or lighting along the sides of the hallway to distract the chi from side to side.
4) Avoid placing a bed, seating area or desk in direct line of the door/hallway
Let me know if you have this situation in you space, if you notice any impact, and which cures you'd consider for it in the comments below.

<![CDATA[How The Challenge Was Born]]>Thu, 28 Sep 2017 17:46:11 GMThttp://fengshuipathways.com/blog/how-the-challenge-was-bornThe Clutter Clearing Challenge did not come about by accident! I designed it purposefully for myself - to help me get a handle on all the stuff we had!

A few years ago, when my kids were about 3 and 5 I was drowning under the weight of taking care of our family, our house, and all the things in it! Clothes, toys, holiday decorations, food, personal care items and so-so much more.

I would spend hours picking stuff up, finding a home for it, sorting, organizing, and cleaning, only to have it all undone in lightning speed. It felt like I was chasing my tail and not getting anywhere. I was tired, frustrated, completely uninspired by my day to day chores, and often in a bad mood or resentful of everyone and everything!

As someone who has practiced Feng Shui for years and is well aware of the effect our environment can have on our well-being, I knew things had to change. I loved my family and our home but it was all at risk if I didn't do something. It was clear that I had too much stuff to take care of and some of it had to go.

I was already feeling maxed out of both time and energy. so I didn't know how I could possibly tackle going through all our stuff and letting it go. I started by committing a small portion of each day, every day, to looking at what we had and releasing some of it. And within a few weeks I felt better! I could see and feel the difference that releasing stuff was making. Our whole family dynamic was shifting for the better.

As I paid more attention to the challenges that all my clutter presented for me, I realized I that many friends of mine, and some of my feng shui clients, were also struggling with this. And so the #ClutterClearingChallenge was born.

Over the last two years, more than 100 people have joined in on a Clutter Clearing Challenge and lightened their load substantially. Following daily prompts, the group committed to small, consistent clutter clearing actions, with support and accountability helping everyone stay focused. It was so successful that many have repeated the Challenge more than once, de-cluttering more deeply each time around.

The next Clutter Clearing Challenge - a 10 day online group program - begins October 9th. You can participate from anywhere as long as you have access to internet and facebook.  Join today for as little as $45. Details and registration information can be found HERE.

If you know someone who would benefit from joining the challenge, please share the information about the program with them.  If you're unsure about whether this program is right for you, or have questions about it, send me a message and we can set up a time to connect.

<![CDATA[Three Feng Shui Tips About Mirror Placement]]>Sun, 17 Sep 2017 02:49:28 GMThttp://fengshuipathways.com/blog/three-feng-shui-tips-about-mirror-placementOne of the most common questions I'm asked about is mirror placement. Mirrors are a powerful tool in feng shui and can accomplish many different tasks in a space if they're placed correctly.  There are some cautions to using mirrors, because of their power they can magnify negative consequences.  I talked about some of this in a recent facebook live video.  You can check it out here: 
I did a second video on the same day answering a question about whether to hang a mirror at the end of the hallway or not.  You can check out that video on the Feng Shui Pathways facebook page.   There's a few videos there and I'll be making more so be sure to like the page and click to be notified about new postings.
