CAN YOU HAVE IT ALL BY APPLYING FENG SHUI?

 

It doesn’t matter how you look at it because you cannot divide the 9 Feng Shui areas of your life equally nor have it all equally.   

The good news is, you still can have a well-balanced life when you apply the 6,000 year old science, in the traditional and old fashioned way. 

All of us have 9 pathways called areas of life: Health, Career, Family, Wealth, Fame, Education, Children, Creativity, and Love.   

 

10557287_10153659604958647_3769950104811269336_n

 

Notice that I put Health first, because Health is the most important of all; without health, we cannot enjoy all the other 8 areas of our lives.  

Perhaps, that may be the reason the LoPan (Feng Shui compass) places Health in the center; the center of our own personal universe.

We also have 3 kinds of luck: 

Heavenly Luck:  Meaning where you were born, and to what family.  However, in my opinion, if you were born here, in America, then you already have one of the three lucks, just like Trump or Bill Gates.

Earthly Luck:  You work hard to achieve your own luck, i.e., work overtime, go to school, earn a college degree, etc…. 

Feng Shui Luck:  Apply Feng Shui to help you sail through life easier, without struggling. My analogy of applying feng shui is similar to having a GPS to go from point A to point B, making our lives easier, rather than struggling with map page turning. 

Now, let’s get back to my opening statement that, “It does not matter how you look at it.  You cannot divide the 9 Feng Shui areas of your life equally.”

 

10751545_10204714560961842_67768678_n

 

This is true.  Even with feng shui application, we cannot divide our lives into 9 squares evenly because most of us don’t want them all equally.  

Think about it, for example, not every one of us want children, or marriage, or fame.  

There is always an area of our lives of which we place greater importance than others.  Some enjoy a good Career, some just want to live a simple life and be happy with Family; some yearn for Wealth, or love to be Famous; some just love Education, or Creativity, and some live for Love.  

 

So ask yourself honestly, what is the most important thing in your life? Then use feng shui to activate that important thing. 

I will give you some examples of my life, and how I applied Feng Shui from my teenage years til now. 

As a homeless refugee teenager, I knew I needed to have education to take me to the next level.  Education luck is located in Northeast section. I needed to activate that NE section, to assist me in my clear thinking so I could have good grades. 

 

1536675_10202716506371726_170533330_n

 

 

After I graduated, I knew I needed to build wealth, enough wealth, to help support and sponsor my family to America.  

 Just so you know, to sponsor my love ones to America, I had to fill out tons of paper work, proof of relationship, have a stable job, bank statements, assets, and a signed affidavit that when my family came here to America, they would not seek US Government assistance, welfare, food stamps, etc…   

I had to support my family, 40 of them until they became self-sufficient without receiving any government aid. 

 

534468_4746067927569_1786179584_n

So, Wealth is in Southeast.   To have wealth, I needed to concentrate on the SE section by making sure there was no clutter, and positioning myself and things to attract wealth.

 

Fast forward on to 2015 ~~ having lived my 40 years in America, I have been blessed with a good life.

 

Only America could offer me the FREEDOM to be whomever I wanted to be, whatever I wanted to do, and what kind of life that I wanted to live.  I did successfully achieve all 9 areas of my life, and as I turned 50, I decided to share my knowledge with the world, that we could have it all.  

You see, in the East (Asia, where I was born), when we apply feng shui, we want to have wealth because we Asians are realists.

 

Money-800x533

 

Statistically, it has been proven that 63% of a failed marriage has a lot to do with money, and we know that love without money will not last because when the debtors come knock at our doors, love flies out of the window. 

 

In Asia, we were taught that it is easier to fall in love with a rich man than a poor man, because it is more romantic to be on a cruise with your hair flowing in the breeze with your scarf flying while holding a wine glass in your hand than being at an “all you can eat buffet.” 

 

And in the west, most of us yearn for Relationship.  By the way, the area of Relationship is located in South West section.  If you want love, activate that SW section, and remember to display everything in a pairs. 

 

As I always say, “Love comes in pairs, single displays come with despair.”  Display something cheerful, happy; no cactus plants, nothing “thorny” or sharp because you don’t want a thorny relationship. You want your love life to be a bed or roses, yes?

 

7-17-15 FENG SHUI HAVE IT ALL DOG DEER 439_n

 

So friends, by practicing Feng Shui, you can have it all, but not equally.  Ask yourself:  “What would I want from life?”  Think, and write it on a piece of paper.  Whatever you want, activate that section, and apply all three kinds of luck as I mentioned earlier, and voila, Heaven luck, Earth Luck and Feng Shui luck, together, work like magic.

MUSIC ~ FENG SHUI FOR THE SOUL

How deep can a person reach into the self to conquer adversity?

If I were to choose one area of life that I feel would be most crucial to create balance and harmony in life, it would be feng shui for relationships.

Feng shui for relationships goes far beyond the thought of just love and romance, and a beloved significant other.

 

11012452_865230110189633_3205294062517446912_n

Avoid feng shui error, by not dividing feng shui into sections or categories, and consider what your personal relationship is to any area of your life, besides him or her.

To enhance any area of your life, feng shui for relationships should be the arrow that targets health, wealth, fame, creativity, mentors, career, knowledge, and family.

After all, it has been proven that Love conquers all.

Step back from time to time and try to observe feng shui at play.

Let’s take music, art, and friendship for example; these 3 elements when combined create long lasting friendships unlike love. 

 

11391098_10206460471767584_3833176849897949405_n

     (Thuong Linh, also kwown as the Blues Jazz Queen)

 

When we humans say we are falling in love, actually, we are falling into an “illusion” that we are in love because we so often fall in love, and then fall out of love, but with music, art and friendship, we find “love” for our “soul”, and a love that never fades.

 

11224068_1086039341424208_5901776796573710258_n

 

On May 30, 2015, I witnessed a feng shui extravaganza.  I was invited to honor Poet/Song Writer, Tran Da Tu, who had been captured and imprisoned for twelve years by North Vietnamese soldiers after the fall of Viet Nam, April 30, 1975. 

He was arrested and imprisoned for expressing his poetic views that encouraged peace and harmony for all; the north, the south, including the American presence, to let live, and live freely. 

Ironically, he was also imprisoned by South Viet Nam Government in 1963 for the same reason. 

In one swift day, he was stripped of all nine areas of his life; his relationship with wealth, fame, children, friends, career, health, mentors, and family, all gone from the stroke of a pen. 

He was taken away from family and home. His beloved children, the oldest being thirteen, were left homeless to survive in the street.

 Strikingly his imprisonment did not stifle his wisdom, creativity, and the love in his heart. His relationship with life continued to flourish in support of his family, friends and fellow prisoners.  

When he was imprisoned, he managed to turn a negative circumstance into composing positive poems, and music.

 

???????????????????????????????

 

Remarkably, today his songs express no flickers of anger, or bitterness; purely music of joy, and gratitude toward citizens that had helped him and his prisoner of war friends. 

It’s been nearly 40 years since that fateful day, and today, Tran Da Tu and his family are freely home here in America where he has restored those nine areas of his life, and more.

11202572_728769113900933_5948282577574292245_n 

Nearly 40 years later, he is totally free to express the love in his heart through poetry, music, family and friends that have filled his heart with love; family love, spousal love, friendship love; poetic love of art and music along with the art of forgiveness. 

 The energy at the Samueli Theater was so incredible.  It was indeed the modern day of Camelot.

1546204_10153445567517074_5574028856728559926_n

The orchestra led by  Hoang Cong Luan and his musicians, some having come a long way from New York, provided elaborate and spectacular entertainment throughout the celebrated event with five stars performers,

   (from left,  Thuong Linh, Khanh Ly, Ha Pham, Quang Tuan, Kieu Chinh, and Le Uyen) 

 

There was no room for tears in this wondrous occasion. Meeting him and his equally famous novelist wife, Nha Ca, was quite an honor.

My eyes were misty seeing that Tran Da Tu received a standing ovation,

and a heartfelt tribute from the legendary International star Kieu Chinh, a star in the movie “Ride the Thunder” playing in many theaters.  Kieu Chinh also is a close friend of Tippi Hedren who is a hero to many Vietnamese refugees who became nail salon magnates.

Many of his friends flew in for this special night as he launched his entertainment CD titled, Goi Dau & Bay (Shampoo & Fly), and was performed by two generations of Vietnamese Entertainers.

       (The International star Kieu Chinh, Singer  Quang Tuan and Le Van)  

Goi Dau means Shampoo in English, and song writer Tran Da Tu, with choreographed dancers, directed by Thang Dao who flew in from New York, expressed an analogy that in shampooing our hair, we remove all dirt, filth, and sin as we shake ourselves off and start anew.  Quite thought provoking!   

 America is the land of opportunity; true; however, living in the United States can be quite demanding, and fast paced – a place where we can lose track of our inner self.

 

???????????????????????????????

 (Gwen, Thang Dao, Dance Company Founder and Dr. Olivia Lan Huong)

 

More than ever, we need music. Music is one facet of the 9 areas of life that we feng shui practitioners align with because music involves creativity, relationships, love, and family, etc.…

 

11393734_1086039278090881_1232706718387314646_o

To witness the musicians playing, we could see feng shui in the making of orchestrated knowledge; mentors working together in unison to create and compose vibrating, harmonious sounds to enhance love, friendship and family.   

Music brings refreshing calmness into our lives filled with peace, tranquility, and we are soulfully enhanced with beautiful serene creativity, allowing us to target the areas of our lives we desire to activate health, wealth, fame, relationships, mentors, career, and family.

 

???????????????????????????????

 (A real treat to listen to my idol,  Tuan Ngoc serenades us in  “Gọi Tên Dòng Sông” ~ loosely translate ~  “Calling out your name, my river”     https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BuzwgRX6sPs&feature=youtu.be )

 

 

Tran Da Tu’s friends had traveled here from different states to unite under one roof to celebrate together a night of songs and poetry in honor of Tran Da Tu. 

Magically, music often brings people together, and this marvelous event made dinner, all together, the icing on the cake.

MENTAL HEALTH AWARENESS MONTH of MAY and FENG SHUI CURES

 

The following is an excerpt from a 15 minute interview with Connie from ASIA, the Journal of Culture and Commerce: 

1. Why did you decide to help the mentally ill people? 

A: It started many years ago when my family went to Saint Vincent De Paul’s center to help serve Thanksgiving dinner to the homeless.

I discovered that contrary to what people think about the homeless, that they are lazy, they don’t want to work, that they are dangerous to the society, etc., being a volunteer gave me a different outlook. In reality, most of the homeless people were very nice, and many are diagnosed as mentally ill. Because of their illness, they are unable to take advantage of help that the State has to offer such as housing, medical, food, etc…(I may contribute some articles in the future on the homeless & mental illness).

Since mental illness strikes one in five families according to the American Medical Association, people need to be educated to help the mentally ill just like we help the physically ill (heart disease, cancer, AIDS, etc…) 

2. What can Feng Shui do for them? How can it help people? 

A. Feng Shui is the ancient practice of living life in harmony and balance. By practicing Feng Shui, it removes stress from our daily  life, and that would help people from becoming another Prozac user. For the mentally ill, a harmonious environment is very important because in their mind, there is no rest, and the mentally ill do not need additional stress. A calm and serene environment is very important for their peace of mind. 

3. Why do you choose to help mentally ill people with Feng Shui? 

A: The media creates the wrong impression of the mentally ill; that they are dangerous, lazy and that they just need to snap out of it and go get a job. That is realistic thinking of so called “normal” people.

The mentally ill do not have that luxury.

They cannot think like “normal” people.

Most of them are gifted and exceptionally bright.

Perhaps that is the reason most geniuses are diagnosed with some form of mental illness: Famous painter: Van Gogh, President Abraham Lincoln, Princess Diana, Marilyn Monroe, Prime Minister Winston Churchill, Nobel Winner John Nash (Beautiful Mind), and so on…

4. How effective is Feng Shui with treating people with mentally ill diseases? 

A: Feng Shui can add calm to an environment, and create harmony, allowing the mentally ill to be serene in a Feng Shui environment with dignity. Feng Shui cannot take place of medication and love. To be effective, and to help in speedy recovery, everything must be done together to achieve goals by having faith in God (prayer), applying science (medication), and creating harmony (feng shui); and the most important ingredients: love & compassion.

(Deer Park Monastery in Escondido, founded by our beloved Thay Thich Nhat Hanh, free to all who come to visit and practice mindfulness, which would help “zen” your mind and body). 


5. What is the connection between Feng Shui and making people lives better? 

A: When Feng Shui is practiced correctly, you can benefit from it almost immediately. You begin to understand the laws of the universe, and how to combine Yin and Yang to balance your lives. Feng Shui principles can be applied to enjoy life as a whole. For an example, if you have wealth and no health, you have nothing. Or if you have wealth, health, and fame but have no family, or friends to share your success with, what good would it do? Feng Shui will balance all 9 areas of your lives: wealth, health, family, children, career, fame, relationship, knowledge, Helpful people (God, Buddha, etc…) 


6. How have you benefited with Feng Shui? 

A: I have been practicing Feng Shui all my life. I credit my happiness to Man luck (hard work), Heavenly luck (fate) and Feng Shui luck (sitting in the right direction at the right time to create the right opportunity, etc…). 

7. What sets mentally ill people’s lives apart from other people’s lives? 

A: The mentally ill are more honest. They see things as they are and they do not pretend. There is no mask, no agenda. 

8. What is your background with NAMI or with the San Diego County Psychiatric Hospital? 

A: I know about the NAMI Headquarters located in Virginia. National NAMI invited me to speak about Feng Shui and Mental Illness at their Annual National convention in Minneapolis, and again this year in September at Washington D.C.

My husband and I are volunteer members of The San Diego County Psychiatrist Hospital Auxiliary (SDCPHA); a nonprofit organization that supports the San Diego County Mental Hospital. The President of the Auxiliary, Gail Andrade, is a wonderful woman with a warm heart, along with her angels, working tirelessly to support the hospital and the mentally ill. The SDCPHA organization is also very open minded. Their love for the mentally ill allows them to listen to any new ideas that would benefit the patients. We are just so glad to be members in this organization.

 

SDCPHA is having a spring luncheon yearly, to recorgnize Hero, Angel, and Star. 

Our first Hero (Karen Hogan, the Director of San Diego County Mental Hospital, who has contributed above and beyond her duty), the Angel (Lois Kolender, the wife of retired Chief of Police, who is helping tirelessly for the benefit of the mentally ill), and the Star (Shanna Lee Moore because of her strength and her determination to regain herself from her mental illness). 

 

Gail'sAward4-03_0869

(Photo of Lois Kolender’s husband ~ the wife of retired Chief of Police Kolender,  who is helping tirelessly for the benefit of the mentally ill, and Gwen Coronado). 


10. What other public service do you perform? 

A: I used to go to Vietnam to help deaf children with hearing aids, and helping various orphanages in Viet Nam that are run by the sisters and nuns. 

Every year, the SDCPHA has a Christmas function to give Christmas presents to the mentally ill in the Hospital & serve refreshments. The event is usually held on December 24. My husband and I very honored to be servers at the event. 

We are also involved with the Tariq Khamisa Foundation, a group which educates children about getting along without violence by teaching peace. The founder of this organization, Azim Khamisa is a wonderful person. His only son, Tariq Khamisa was killed by a 14 year old gangster. He is mourning his only son by forgiving the person who took away his only son’s life. He went to the prison to visit the kid gangster and he led by example by “loving & forgiving the enemy”. The foundation’s motto is adapted from Gandhi’s philosophy: “Teach Peace”.

(Photo of  Azim Khamisa & Ples Felix,  Azim, his only child was killed by Ples’s grandson, but Azim forgave and worked together with Ples to  preach:  “I reached the conclusion that there were victims at both ends of the gun”)

 

My husband and I were so honored to meet Gandhi’s grandson: Dr. Arun Gandhi. Quite a remarkable man! Quite a remarkable organization! It teaches me that love can override anything, and that one person (Azim Khamisa) can make a difference. 

Email us Gwen@GwenCoronado.com if you would like to schedule a speaking engagement, a Feng shui walking tour, or a feng shui consultation.   100% of my net proceed from my speaking engagement for mental health is to be donated to NAMI.   Blessings!

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. 

 

1-27-15 FLOWERS NEW YEAR DESK  C05546

 

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.   

 

Golden-New-Year-Goat-2015

 

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!

SPACE CLEARING to WELCOME 2015 NEW YEAR – YEAR OF THE SHEEP

 

 “Underneath all is land”. 

That is the first thing real estate agents learn in real estate class; the value of land. 

In feng shui, and space clearing we always consider what is underneath the land? 

Photo below is a famous site of the Linda Vista Haunted Home in San Diego, CA

 

7-7-11 THANHLOAN MJC LV HOME 101_8338

Without land, there is no development. We simply cannot construct any building without land to hold our magnificent buildings, including mobile homes. 

You may ask: “What does it have to do with feng shui and space clearing?” Well, the land lot may be auspicious, or maybe not, that’s why we need Feng Shui. Space clearing pertains to whom and what has occupied the land before you.   

“Well, I bought my house brand new, so none of space clearing is needed!” Yes, your home is brand new, but what about your land? It was there before any of us were born, and it will remain there when we all disappear from the face of the earth. So, buying a new home does not exempt anyone from the land that embraces you and your family if it is auspicious or not. 

 

Wedding2-15-03_0507

 

 

Most countries believe in blessing the land prior to moving in by offering mother earth flowers, candles, incense, and water (feng shui 5 elements) to have mother earth support when we move onto her land.  

We’ve all seen supernatural movies such as “The Others” staring Nicole Kidman, or “The Sixth Sense”, starring Bruce Willis, or the true story like “The Amityville Horror.”

In that real life story, Father Mancuso learned in demonology: the odor of human excrement was always associated with the appearance of the Devil! And an old, abandoned, covered-up well; spirits may be coming from the well. You can cap it off, but if you do find a well under your house, there is a direct passage to it. Even if it’s a tiny crack, that’s all it takes. With that, “it” can climb out when it wants to. 

Now that I have your attention, here is a suggestion: 

Prior to buying a home, look for the right feng shui lot, surf my web site www.FengShuiSanDiego.Com for additional information of do’s and don’ts or email me Gwen@GwenCoronado.com   

And prior to moving in your dream home, have a priest or a monk, or a rabbi (according to your religious background) bless your home. You and your family should go around and get acquainted with your new home, talk to the home. I know, I know, it sounds like you are insane to talk to your house, but trust me; the house has soul too, just like your trees, your plants, and your flowers.

 

article-1184346-04FEC426000005DC-59_468x313

 

 Ever notice that when a person talks to a plant, the plant blooms so beautifully whereas the plants only being watered and fertilized look so lonely? Here is a photo of Prince Charles, who has been known to talk to his plants, and used his thousands of acres of land for organic herbs, vegetables and fruits.   

That’s the reason I love feng shui. It teaches one to be mindful (this is a term I borrowed from Thay Thich Nhat Hanh).

11-27-14 DEER PARK READING DSC02659

 

Be mindful about what surrounds us, embrace everything that Mother Nature gives us, and with the right feng shui, blessings, and love, we all can live in harmony and world peace will come automatically.   

February 19, 2015 is a Lunar New Year, the year of the Sheep.

It is best to start to uncluttered your home, and ALWAYS do space clearing PRIOR to the New Year.

May you have a healthy, wealthy, and a year filled with happiness in 2015.

SHOULD SHERYL SANDBERG ~ the COO of FACEBOOK APPLY FENG SHUI?

 “No one has it all”, said Sheryl Sandberg the Chief Operating Officer of Facebookand we beg to differ.  We firmly believe that we can have it all, providing we have balance in our life.   

Balance is simple, simpler than most of us make it to be.  We will explain more. 

Most of our clients practice feng shui to be happy, have good health, and wealth; and most importantly, contentment.  Life is not meant to be a struggle. 

This chart, a part of Gwen’s speech at her last speaking event in Hawaii, is a tool for all of us, to have it all.  

In viewing this chart, there are 9 areas of our lives: 

  1. Fame

  2. Love/Relationships

  3. Children

  4. Mentor

  5. Career

  6. Knowledge

  7. Health

  8. Wealth

  9. Family

 Gwen said she has used this chart in goal setting the last 40 years.

 

10751545_10204714560961842_67768678_n

 

To use this chart, before going home from work, take 5 minutes to look at the chart, see if you have focused too much in one area and may have neglected others.  

The scale must balance. It can tip a bit but it cannot tip too far off.  

For example, if you focus too much on making money (wealth), chances are another area of your life such as health, family or relationship may suffer. Time to refocus.

By looking at this chart daily, it’ll bring focus into our lives. 

For an example, if our career does not do well, then we must change what we have been doing.  Remember the saying:

A WALKING FENG SHUI TOUR AT THE TRUMP INTERNATIONAL HOTEL in WAIKIKI HONOLULU HAWAII – FENG SHUI TREE

 

The Donald Trump buildings have been known to use Feng Shui to enhance wealth, health and happiness. 

Let’s take a walking feng shui tour, show and tell walk with me ~~ 

 

10-25-14 TRUMP NAME ABOVE THE EYES LEVEL DSC09653

  

Have your company name in bold letters, easy to read.

Think of TRUMP, STARBUCKS, NORDSTROM, etc… 

The world is changing, and we are going to coexist with one another, globally.  

In Feng Shui, we believe that change is good and is expected for us to grow and develop. 

No change, no growth. 

Most of the time, Asian buyers want to make sure they are buying a place with positive Feng Shui elements to help them tap into the benefits of Feng Shui. 

Every one of us has three kinds of luck: Heaven Luck (you are born with it, known as destiny). 

Man Luck (work hard, overtime, 2 jobs, etc.). 

Feng Shui Luck (placing your desk in the right direction for career; your office positioned in the right location for wealth, etc.) to ensure good health, prosperity, and success in life.

 

Gwen Coronado is teaching step by step  "HOW TO USE A PAKUA LOPAN FENG SHUI  COMPASS"

 

 Donald Trump declared: “I don’t have to believe in Feng Shui, I do it because it makes me Money.”  

Thereafter, many home-builders followed Donald’s declaration.  Perhaps they didn’t believe in Feng Shui; however in the 1980’s, when Asian buyers began purchasing new homes in their subdivisions, mainly Los Angeles and San Francisco, California, home-builders took notice. 

Feng Shui is also a factor that influences their home buying decisions.  

The home lot is the most important, ideally, with water in the front.  Water represents money flowing into the house, and a mountain in the back represents support.  However, in the city, it is almost a fairy tale to have water and a mountain at the same location, so we can use tall buildings as a modern-day mountains.

Here is the Trump International Hotel’s “backyard”.

 

???????????????????????????????

 

 Flowers, so inexpensive, yet it can uplift your mood instantly.

Here is the Trump International Hotel “bouquet of flowers” near the elevator.  The fragrance, and its fire color immediately brings guests a harmonious feeling when they’re heading “home away from home” to their rooms.

Notice that all 5 elements of feng shui are in the flower arrangement ~ wood, fire, earth, metal and water.

Chandelier balls, and fire flower bouquets invite wealth.

Here is a lobby at the Trump International Hotel where you can walk directly to Waikiki Beach in just a few steps. 

Orchid flowers, the fragile, delicate flower represents a beautiful woman that needs support.

Here is a simple arrangement at the Trump International Hotel where art is displayed, the female (orchid) and male (the round gold plate, representing the powerful earth) as yin and yang together, very harmonious.  

 

???????????????????????????????

 

Words of caution: DO NOT place artificial flowers if you want to attract high caliber clients.  The first thing real estate clients do is “feel” if the flowers are real, if the flowers are not real, they will make an assumption that you are not “real” (fake) either. 

Lastly, the “deep rooted” tree, which I call the “feng shui tree” has so many branches that it represents you are grounded, and cannot be uprooted, and the multiple branches represent multiple streams of success in your life, wealth, career, fame, family, friends, health and relationships.

2015 FENG SHUI CURE FOR THE EARTH SHEEP YEAR

 

Have you noticed that your luck may have changed recently, for better or for worse, in your personal or business life?  

 

????

 

Why?  Because we are now approaching the end of the Wooden Horse 2014, and welcoming the Earth Sheep, which is going to be on February 19, 2015.  Now, it is time to tune up to maximize our good fortune, and minimize our bad luck. 

The Sheep is gracious, loves peace, serenity and is attracted to beautiful surroundings. 

The 2015 Sheep year, also represents love.  Love for family, loved ones, Love for your friends, for your neighbors, and your home surroundings.  

 

10154885_10204453914125834_1485669341952171578_n

This is the year we focus on our loved ones, forgive and forget, reuniting, all for one and one for all. 

The Sheep loves fashion.  This is a year that we should develop creativity and become fashion icons!  

(Another reason why I love feng shui is because I can tell my husband that I follow feng shui, and I dress well to attract wealth (wink).

2015 is the time to re-decorate, dress to impress, and take a long look at your overcrowded wardrobe. 

Elegance and cleanliness is the Wood Sheep’s last name.

 

10413381_10204614906990555_473528045979513262_n

Get ready to welcome the 2015 New Year with many opportunities by uncluttering your home.   

Share your wealth by letting go of any unused furniture, no matter how expensive, and let someone else enjoy them. 

Also, when you give them to the Goodwill, it is tax deductible, meaning instant wealth, and you increase your living space. 

 For all business entrepreneurs, the 2015 Earth Sheep falls on a Wood Year; in Feng Shui terms – Wood destroys Earth.   

Therefore, do not use too much Fire element (red, purple, orange, pink), but activate more Water element.

Good Travel Direction for 2015
Water - North

Wood - East/Southeast 

Sickness Star this year is in the South East.

Misfortune/Sickness Star this year is in the West.

Disputes/Quarrel Star this year is in the Center.

Education/Romance Star this year is in the Northwest.   

Avoid sitting facing the Southwest, 210 Degree, and do not undertake any renovations in this direction. 

There is Conflict in the West.

For business people, especially Real Estate professionals, avoid the West direction when possible! 

2015 flying star feng shui warns us that this year will be dominated by hostility, anger, having negative energy effects worldwide with violence. 

This is a year that we must learn to apply the four P’s Principles: 

Peace

Partnership

Prosperity and

Protection.

When in doubt,  Show LOVE and Mercy!
