Good Vibrations

It’s a new year ….. hallelujah! Mind you, it has started off a bit shaky, but I am going to set my sights on the good things to come. Since 2020 drove us all indoors for much of the year, and I don’t see that changing anytime soon, I’ve been thinking about what we can do to make our immediate environment better and more conducive to harmony and self improvement.

With that in mind, the new focus of my blog is going to be feng shui. For those of you who might be unfamiliar with feng shui, it is the science of living space. The words literally translate to “wind water.” Although feng shui has been widely used in China and the Far East for centuries, it has only gained popularity in the West fairly recently. Feng shui offers an integrated set of guidelines for organizing your environment (home, office, etc) with two goals in mind:

  1. achieving balance
  2. harnessing positive energy to create well-being and help bring good fortune

Let’s talk about energy. No matter what you call it – chi, prana, vibes, – one thing is certain: all around us, there are visible and invisible light emissions that help us to define our surroundings. In Western science, these energy lines in the atmosphere are referred to as the electromagnetic spectrum. In Chinese science, they are known as chi energy lines or “earth currents.” These earth currents are believed to be dynamic forces that impact all living things. Human beings are influenced by the quality of this invisible energy; we vibrate in consonance with its rhythm.

Have you ever walked into a room and felt energized? Or been in a place that made you feel uneasy? Do you wonder why some places of business never seem to make it in a certain location? The answers may be simpler than you think! By incorporating basic feng shui principles, you can manipulate the energy of your space. You can tap into the good chi and use it to bring well-being and encourage good fortune.

If you are open-minded and willing to consider the Chinese view of the universe – including the belief in the significance of the five elements (Fire, Earth, Metal, Water, Wood) as well as the concept of the yin and yang of energy, AND you want to learn how to harness good energy to make it work for you – then come along with me on my journey!

2018 ~ The Year of the Dog

Happy Chinese New Year!

I believe 2018 is going to be a GREAT year.

“Why?” you ask.

Because it’s the year of the dog. The brown dog, to be exact. And I just happen to have one!

Applesauce

The Chinese believe that if a dog happens to come to a house, it symbolizes the coming of fortune.

DOG IN THE HOUSE!

Dogs are honest and loyal, reliable and loving. They are steadfast and true – once they make a decision, they go for it! They can accomplish extraordinary things. (See video below) Try to incorporate these traits into your life and work and you are sure to be inspired and bound to achieve success! For ideas on how, check out this article.

According to Chinese zodiac analysis, people born in the Year of the Dog tend to be independent, sincere, loyal and decisive . They are not afraid of difficulties in daily life. These shining characteristics are conducive to harmonious relationships with others. However, it is widely believed that people born under the sign of the current year face more challenges. It’s a good idea to be cautious and overly generous this year!

8   Another good omen is the “8” in this year. “8” is considered to be a lucky number. In Chinese, the number 8 sounds like the word for “fortune.”

To increase your luck, wear red. Red symbolizes upward movement – think the flames of a fire. It is considered a symbol of good fortune, and the Chinese believe that the color red can protect them and drive away evil spirits. You should incorporate the color red into your wardrobe and your environment. Green and purple are also lucky this year.

The focus this year will be on on agriculture, the environment, activism and real estate. Aaaand I just happen to be a Realtor in one of the coolest cities in America – Savannah. There’s no better time to buy. Check out my website and see all the great properties available here.

The element connected with the dog this year is earth. This will have a grounding effect and will allow people to take a more level-headed approach to problems.

Lucky numbers this year: 3,4,9 (That was my house number in Dhahran, Saudi Arabia, where I was born and raised!)

I really believe 2018 is going to be a fabulous year. All you have to do is believe, like this dog:

Hope you all have a great year!
