Thoughts and Reflections for 4.7.2020

I really love this question. This is an area the guiding principles of Feng Shui and Nine Star Ki can be very beneficial. For the purposes of offering explanation and insight, I am going refer to the energy profile of the person asking the question.

Dear 3.7.1,
You have a unique energy profile. The combination of tree, metal and water energy gives you the ability to relate and be compatible in and with a variety of the energies of others and situations.

Seeds contain all of the necessary information needed to grow into themselves. For the most part, a seed placed in good soil and given adequate water and appropriate sun begins the process of growth. Some seeds grow quickly and some take a little more time. Stillness is an essential quality for any seed to begin growing. Imagine the trust and knowing for a seed to feel settled enough to release and begin growing.

Each of us has planted and continue to plant “seeds” which become the garden of our lives. Perhaps during your life you learned to play an instrument. The process of learning to play is a seed that you planted for yourself. If you continued to cultivate and work at playing your instrument, more growth occurred. Learning to play an instrument requires an element of stillness, the process is one of focus, patience and determination. Each sound has a resonance and quality to be understood. The same is true of becoming a carpenter. There are so many concepts that must be practiced and understood by a carpenter to become skilled enough to build a structure. Again, stillness is a necessary quality to begin. Continue reading

Greetings! And so the work continues…

***Beginning 3.27.2020 I will only send emails to those who have sent feedback. If you would like to be kept on the email list, please let me know. All of my posts are available on my website: www.fengshui831.com. Electronic communication can be a form of clutter and it is my intention to be mindful and respectful.

Clutter. Books, articles and television shows have shared information regarding the subject of clutter. Since so much energy has been utilized to consider and deal with clutter, it may be worth considering that all of this attention given to clutter means that clutter has tremendous value. When some “thing” is seen as having value our relationship with “thing” shifts. Let’s examine the possibilities of what clutter actually is and gain an understanding of its value and meaning in our life. Continue reading

Thoughts and Reflections for 3.21.2020

Feedback is appreciated! I’ve heard from several energy friends!! Thank you for the encouraging words. All of my posts are available to read on my website under the link “ENGAGE.” I am grateful to Diane Vogel at Graphic Penguin (d.vogel@graphicpenguin.com) for posting my thoughts and reflections on my website….www.fengshui831.com.

My perspective has shifted when it comes to my inevitable typos when writing. I’ve read and reread and yet, after an email or post has been sent, there it is…a glaring typo. The shift in my perspective is that the reader is not criticizing me or demeaning my intelligence, it is a message from the universe (to me) that when a reader notices my typo, it signifies my words have actually been read by someone. Whew! It’s my perspective and I going with it. With that said, I am fully open to receiving feedback and grammatical corrections. I enjoy writing, so any support to develop my skill is welcomed.
