A SACRED SPACE OF YOUR OWN FOR THE NEW YEAR 2015

 

This desk is my “escape zone.”

When I sit on this desk, my family knows not to disturb me, because that is my “me” time when I let my mind wander. 

All of us can afford a little corner that belongs to us so that we can be ourselves and day dream.   

Life is too wonderful to be bored. 

When I feel restless, this is where I am. 

I take refuge in my small antique desk that’s filled with beautiful cards, colorful paper, pens, and pencils that I’ve collected from many different places where I’ve traveled. 

I have stamps ready for me to dash off a note to my friends. 

It is so delightful to feel my fountain pen making a beautiful sound on the card while I am writing.

I enjoy collecting bottles of ink in different colors, blue, red, black, pink and purple.   I love the variety of colors.  

When I sit to write a card, I use different colored inks depending on my mood so be cautious when I write to you in red ink (wink).  It wakes up my senses and gives me a boost of energy; so enjoyable. 

I have everything I love on my desk, for instance, a fish bowl that was given to me to hold my pens, that was hand made by a mentally challenged artist, as one of a kind, and I can feel her energy when I touch the bowl.  

The tulip flower with bulbs, in feng shui, represents abundance as a “gift that keeps on giving and giving” because they reproduce.  I love flowers; when I was a poor refugee, I would walk instead of taking a bus to save bus fare in order to buy one flower stem to light up my studio apartment.  Pure joy! 

21 Days til the Lunar New Year.  I wish you all the best, peace, serenity, happiness, good health and wealth, and most importantly, have a sacred space that you call your own.

Sharing:  I always wake up early on Sunday morning, before any members of my family, and I have a full two hours of “me” time to write, to think, and to let my mind wander around the world, and it costs nothing.  Do it.  You will be very happy.  Guaranteed!

WHY HEALTH IS AT THE CENTER OF THE FENG SHUI LOPAN ~ BE THE RAINBOW IN SOMEONE’S STORM TODAY ~

Repeat after me: 

“I will never complain about my weight again.

I am thankful that I have a healthy appetite and I can eat whatever I want….”

Health is Wealth.

Until we don’t have our health, we don’t truly appreciate what our money cannot buy: Health.

 

That is another reason why, when we practice Feng Shui, Health is at the center of the feng shui LoPan (Feng Shui Compass); a reminder for us all that Health is the center of everything else: wealth, career, family, relationships, etc….

Yesterday, I met with one of my clients, for an annual review.

We had a good time talking about organic gardening, about our foolish younger days, etc.…. Then, he was telling me about our mutual friend that I haven’t seen in ages after he re-married and moved out of San Diego.  I remember our mutual friend quite well, he was vibrant, active in sports, played tennis, jogging.  He took care of his body because like me, he believed our body is our temple….

 

Fast forward, he now had a disease, and no cure.

He is blessed to be alive because of the medical advancement in America.  However, now, he cannot eat foods that he loves like Pho, Rice, or any solid food.  

My friends told me that when they meet him at a restaurant, he could only dip his chopsticks into a bowl of Pho for the broth. 

 

So, please be grateful that we can eat, and taste food, a simple blessing that has been denied to so many. 

 

In Viet Nam, we have a saying:

“Ăn được ngủ được là tiên”.  Loosely translated,

“If you can eat, and if you can sleep, then you are already in the heaven.” 

 

So my dear friends, if you are already in the heaven, take care of yourself. Be good to yourself so that you will continue to enjoy the heavenly life, won’t you?  And, please be the rainbow in someone’s storm today, won’t you?  

Feng Shui tips:  When you are happy,  receiving  many blessings in your home, don’t change your residence.     Remember the saying:  ”If it’s not broken, don’t fix it.”

  Do an annual feng shui tune up instead.  The next feng shui tune up is on February 19, 2015.
