In most of the fifty newspaper columns I've written, I've given readers the opportunity to ask me questions. The answers have helped others who follow my columns and blog. Here are a few examples. You can read my columns on this site for more questions, or better yet write your own question on the blog. Many blessings!
Sample questions from readers:
1) Reader: “I have been reading your columns and have been trying to get pregnant for over a year. Looking at the Bagua I see that my Children’s area is the dinette area of our kitchen, which is usually filled with piles of clutter. We also keep 4 boxes of our deceased pet’s ashes on a shelf in there. Where should I move them? Can Feng Shui help me get pregnant?”
Dear Reader: “Awareness is half the battle. Yes, you definitely should move the ashes which represent loss in a place where you need to focus on new life. If you can’t bury the ashes in your garden, giving them back to the earth, they can be placed in one of your two more spiritual Bagua areas; Knowledge and Self Cultivation or Helpful People, considering them your angels. Clean up your dinette area of all piles, decorate with whites and pastels, place 9 pictures of babies in metal frames and replace them with your pictures when the baby is born. This is a great place for a vision board. Use the area for your meals with your husband. You may even want to bring in a high chair to show the baby you are ready. Keep working with your doctor. Blessings to you, please keep me posted.”
Dear Reader: “The good news is Yes, you can definitely send your mother positive energy, and hopefully help her through her illness by incorporating Feng Shui into your own home. In Feng Shui every space counts (closets and attached garages included). The first thing you need to do is clean, declutter and straighten the room. If you can’t move the cat boxes at least place them in covered containers and keep them clean. The Health area of the Bagua is governed by the Wood element, therefore bringing in shades of blues and greens and healthy plants is essential. Flowers symbolize good health, so hang pictures of radiant flowers, as well as adding floral carpet, throw pillows or a flowered throw on the couch. I recommend placing one or more flowering orchids in the room, which are powerful Ch’i enhancers. Display pictures of your mother in a state of good health with affirmations such as “Mom is healthy and thriving.” If possible hang a 30 mm round faceted crystal in the center of the room to move the energy. Your cats will like this transformation also. If possible, have your mom do this in her own home also. I wish you mother good health and many Feng Shui blessings.”
3) Reader: “When is the best time for a Feng Shui consultation?”
Dear Reader: “Just the fact that you’re asking indicates that you are ready for a consultation. One of the best reasons for a Feng Shui consultation is simply to get yourself “unstuck”. Feng Shui can reduce your stress, improve your sense of life balance, and support your health and prosperity. I recommend Feng Shui consultations at major life transition points like a home renovation or move, marriage, divorce, a new baby, moving into a new office, starting a business are all perfect opportunities to attract fresh, auspicious Ch’i energy into your life. An initial consultation takes approximately two hours and can have amazing results.”
