Feng Shui Fun On The Run

Imbue a closed stairwell with richness instead of the sense of "getting the shaft" by implementing layers of sensory detail. The scrollwork on the treads, spotlights on the frames, and wallpapered slate walls sing "Come to me!" Subscribe to daily Feng Shui mini-lessons at

Feng Shui Fun On The Run

The headboard of the bed should be braced against a solid wall, not exposed to thin air. This allows the conscious mind to release control and slide into sleep as the body is safe. With open air at the head, there is no deep sleep. Subscribe to daily Feng Shui mini-lessons

Feng Shui Fun On The Run

Covering shelves with opaque doors settles the busy-ness of chi that calls attention when exposed to eyes. All of the minutiae of daily life will prevent the languid pooling of energy that allows you to watch a television program.

Feng Shui Fun On The Run

The beauty of Winter is solitary and silent. This collage of cold stages the Marriage gua as empty (upper right), the center occupied by a trio, and an empty frame with overlays of images with no one in them at all. Brrrr…

Feng Shui Fun On The Run

Sha chi flows in laser-lines, cutting and burning all through which it passes. This angled path slices through the Bagua energy map to pierce the Wealth gua like a lightning bolt. Steel-edged tiers cut the path into blade shapes. Edgy energy!

Feng Shui Fun On The Run

Black and gold come together to transform a bathroom with a warm welcome. The white subway tiles marry Earth and Metal while the gold hardware marries Fire and Metal and Water. As yang as the hardscape is, there is also a golden softness.

Feng Shui Fun On The Run Are they #divorced yet? At first glance you see that they have gone in different directions, as split as the #box springs beneath their #king-sized mattress. The lack of #support from a #headboard and real side tables is palpable.

Feng Shui Fun On The Run My first lesson in Feng Shui was to move all the elements in my foyer so that the door could open all the way to the wall. The results were as immediate and impressive as cutting the wires that hold a jaw shut to allow a big bite!

Feng Shui Fun On The Run

Extreme yin energy drives attention inward with a cold, deep silence that mirrors entering a cave, the planting of a seed, or impregnation. The magnetic pull is almost impossible to resist. Note how you fall helplessly into the mirror.

Feng Shui Fun On The Run

A bathroom behind the head of the bed is never a good idea, especially with no door between. Neither is having no headboard. All body care will be shared with the person whose head is on the pillow. Never lift this veil of privacy.

Feng Shui Fun On The Run

Erase poison arrows and oppressive angles with high frequency art applied directly to the walls. Expand awkwardly tight spaces with eye-popping color choices. Pour in the power of sunlight to activate chi in otherwise dark corners.

The element of Water is lovely to look at, but horrific to have flood your environment. Every day those living this close to so much Water must watch the weather, maintain their protection against leaks, and deal with the dampness.

Feng Shui Fun On The Run

The design elements of any space cause the eye to focus and move as they direct. With such a monochromatic canvas, the dark lines of the stair banister and the edges of the stairs effectively force a military march of attention.

Bless the heart of the man who sleeps with this woman. This is the manifestation of the meme about women's brains having 37,498 browser windows open in their head…all. the. time. If the flowers don't get ya, the plates will!

Feng Shui Fun On The Run

Hidden doors reveal adults with things to say that are not being said…aloud…but are being felt. The crucifix, the sunrise transom, and the cloudy class indicate a spiritual person who has vague optimism. There is quiet fear here.

The Power of Speech manifests in two ways: the words that roll off your tongue, and the written word by your hand. This person didn't write these words, but their hand selected them. Screen written words, including on book spines!

The land's natural lines of least resistance correspond to water seeking sea level via the force of gravity. If it encounters a block, water will go around, or it will build up until it breaks through. Meandering is the best flow.

Feng Shui Fun On The Run

It is good Feng Shui to have a house rise above the street level, rather than sit below it. It is even better to have the house on the "high side" of the street. Every street has two sides. Which side of your street is higher?

The brain's attention is attracted by light. Notice how your eye follows the curlicues before you ever see the gold on the far wall past the sitting area. Gauzy and bright, it is light and harmless while it intrigues your mind.

Feng Shui Fun On The Run

When the stove is this close to an exterior door, the chi is drained each time a face appears in the window, and each time the door opens, disbursing the heat gathering to cook the food. This also disburses the money in your bank.

Feng Shui Fun On The Run

Crystal chandeliers transform spaces with almost incredible abilities. They lift energy that is too heavy, slow energy that moves too fast, speed up energy that moves too slow, and ground energy that is too airy - just like magic!

Feng Shui Fun On The Run

While the lines on this house are clean and its upkeep is pristine, the front door has no overhang to protect people from rain or snow. The entry is directly into the Knowledge gua, influencing incoming chi. Expect reality checks.

Feng Shui Fun On The Run

These trusses overhead are heavy enough to make you look up before you sit down. The two light fixtures add to the downward press of energy, as do the many Metal elements. Rethink the coffee table accent and the empty glass windows.

Garden sheds are places where Knowledge creates plans (Creativity) that bear fruit (Family & Wealth). The Tiger's Metal tools (Benefactors) help tend the Earth. Water (Career) ensures that life thrives. The benefits of the Bagua are fulfilled.

Seems simple, but few folks realize its truth. When teens are having trouble, look to their environment. When the body is ill, look to the environment. It is natural for life to thrive. When it doesn't, evaluate the environment.

Feng Shui Fun On The Run

Double doors bring yin energy to the threshold, announcing that you should expect to move into darkness and transformation, much like the seed as it gets planted. Quietly changing those who enter, visitors leave as a different person.

Double Black Tortoise energy from both the stand of tall trees and the mountain peak shields this place while supporting its safety. The wide open Red Phoenix view across the water allows vision to expand. Access only via seaplane.

Friday, November 23, 2018

Feng Shui Fun On The Run A plethora of pillows is not attractive. In fact, they present this sitting space as already taken. For anyone to sit down, they must move pillow…um…to where? Whether on sofas or beds, opportunity and incoming chi are blocked.

Feng Shui Fun On The Run

When you overlay intention and meaning into a centerpiece, the frequency of your thoughts establishes a harmonic resonance that is felt by all who sit at your table. Intend a bounty for yourself and your guests. Happy Thanksgiving!

Feng Shui Fun On The Run

Use art to activate stagnant chi. The energy frequency of the piece will resonate in the space, and magnetize like energy to it. This is a subjective cure. The person living there must evaluate the emotional impact of the art.

Feng Shui Fun On The Run

Green Dragon’s Wood element lifts energy up. Staging living plants beneath stairs with no risers assists the chi’s ascension to the next level. The glass treads are not for use outdoors as their slick surface is unsafe when wet.

Feng Shui Fun On The Run

A-frame houses are shaped like the flame of Red Phoenix’s Fire, as are the pointy peaks of the pine trees. The triangular roof shape slips snow off. The Green Dragon’s Wood energy feeds the Fire in harmony with the environment.

The Seattle Public Library is an architectural creation that makes small children cry and beg their parents to back away.

Channeling a river of chi to the door energizes a vast manse, but can overwhelm those not prepared to deal with the voltage. Like winning the lottery, unless you can handle and direct the flow of energy, you will be inundated.

Feng Shui Fun On The Run

The Knowledge gua in the front left area of a space attracts books, anchoring them with small Earth energy as it morphs into the Wood energy of the Family gua, Center left. But where is everybody? This is a zombie zone of echoes.

There is a powerful magnetism in Geometry that pulls people into matching alignment. A triangular lot compelled this architect to mirror the shape below above the building. People in the in between, however, do much better in hexagons.

Dark counters in the kitchen deepen the effect of the Earth element into its Large Earth manifestation. A kitchen in the back right Marriage gua aligns with the nurturing nature of the meals and treats prepared and served from there.

Feng Shui Fun On The Run Organic curves and swirls are so attractive they entrance the viewer. This threshold produces an altered state of awareness, causing a sense of wonder akin to magic. The White Tiger’s Metal element naturally eschews right angles.
