Sunshine and the Rainy Day Jar

Its a beautiful day to capture the sunshine in my “rainy day jar”.  I don’t know about you, but when there are too many long grey days, I find my chi (energy) evaporating. I created this “rainy day jar” to lift my chi with laughter sunshine sparkle and all things that activate happy!

The sun has come out after many grey days, so I wanted to honor my inner light and charge up this jar with sunshine and crystal chi.

Today I added some sparkling faceted crystals and amazing amethyst

to my shells, gumby and rainbow troll.

I am reminded on this glorious sunny days to pay attention to all things which lift me.

As I find these things along the way, I add them to the jar to brighten my day.

Here is my guide to create your own “Rainy Day Jar”

Find a glass jar or bowl which you love. I have been scouring antique shops for crystal candy dishes.

Look around and see what you have that lifts you up:
Sea shells, sand, crystals, photos of people, places or things.
You can think of this as a “vision jar” by placing your dreams in the jar.
Cotton balls for fluffy clouds, cut out a smiling sun 
Words of Inspiration
Use your imagination.

Place the items in the jar, smiling and feeling the uplifting joy as you do.
Remember a story connected with each item as you touch it.
Experience your feelings with joy.

Place the jar where you can see it everyday, reminding you of the joy in your life.
Inspiring you to add more joy to the jar as you feel it.

Now that’s Fabulous Feng Shui!

I would love to hear your inspirations for your “Rainy Day Jar”

Can’t Stop Laughin” ~ Oh What A Feeling!

When was the last time you realized something so silly… you couldn’t stop laughing?

This happens quite a bit, however this last one is a doozy!
I loved it so much I placed it in my Rainy Day Jar… I added the word “Feat”
rainy day jar
Listening to lots of music on my recent road trip ~ I noticed  many artists are now collaborating together..
One group caught my attention as they seemed to appear with a variety of artists..
They showed up again while listening to Keith Urban “the Fighter.” Collaborating with Keith Urban was Feat and Kelly Clarkson..
Here they are again.. “Feat”! I asked my cousin.. who is this band “Feat” ?
They are turning up everywhere… with Sia and now Keith Urban!
I need to know who they are!
My cousin smiled and said.. “that is not a band, it means “featuring” it is Keith Urban “featuring” Kelly Clarkson!
Ha! How obvious! How did I not get that? Wow! I couldn’t stop laughing… and every time I think about it.. I laugh even more ! Oy! such a feeling! I love it…
Now that’s Fabulous Feng Shui Fire Energy!
Feng Shui Fire Energy is Fun ~ Fabulous and Dramatic… Which is why I was so struck by the silliness of my discovery.  We can use these connections to keep us flexible and open to experience the magic around us.
What is the most obvious thing you learned that made you laugh? that is still making you laugh? I’d love to hear it!
Which brings me to my pal Justin Timberlake singing!
Embrace the Feeling! Dance Dance Dance – Can You Feel The Fun Emerging!


Time To Sparkle and Shine

Time to sparkle and shine, and in the words of my friend Tim McGraw “always be humble and kind.”
Now is the time to sparkle and shine… we don’t need to wait for a special occasion, a new moon or a birthday. Every day is an opportunity to connect with the magic of the universe.
First, we must be open. When we let go of self-imposed limits then the magic really begins.
It’s always out there – ready to land, but if the landing strip is closed, it will circle around until it finds a clear path.
Here is my recent story, the synchronicity that continued validated I was supposed to be where I ended up!
3 months ago, I had planned a trip beginning in North Carolina, then to Nashville ending in Cleveland Ohio area before heading home. The Nashville portion was to teach a class in part of a 5day program. Easy! It was the same class I was teaching in North Carolina, and the program began the day after the 3 day NC retreat ended ~ sweet. Fast forward to the end of September – The facilitator of the 5 day program decided not proceed. I did not change my plans, I knew something fabulous awaited! As I was driving to NC I spoke with a friend of mine who had just decided to hop a plane to Durham – exactly where I was headed for my first stop. She invited me to spend 4 days with her at her friends Lake House! The perfect place to be after my retreat before my drive to Ohio. Lot’s of fun conversation and synchronicities followed. This would not have been possible if I was not open to see what was going to show up.
The next time your plans do not turn out as you expect, be open for magic and miracles to appear. Give yourself some breathing room to allow. Look for the sparkle and shine! And in the words of my driving companion Tim McGraw…”Always Be Humble and Kind”

Mercury, Metal, You and Me ~ Look UP – We Are Perfect Together

Welcome Autumn, as we transition into Autumn September 22, Mercury goes direct. What does this mean? These past few weeks, living in the energy of Mercury in Retrograde, we may have felt; a sense of moving backwards, unfinished business, issues from the past coming forward in the present. There may have been mix-ups, miscommunication, misdirection. Some have expressed feeling felt lost, feeling down, or the sense of those feelings around us.

Good news! As we say goodbye to retrograde.. we say hello to Autumn. We move into the crisp clear energy of metal, focus, vision and completion. Step into this energy of Autumn, as our vision becomes clear, we are living in high definition.

More good news.. we are in this together. We are here to lift each other up. All we need to do is look up.

When we focus our attention up ~ so does our energy rise.. When we are down, find someone who is looking up, and stand beside them. Smile, and pass that smile on to another. We are all in this together, together we raise each other up…

Can You Feel It? Feng Shui Autumn Energy

Smile Into the Sky ~ Can you feel it?

I love the feeling as the season begins to change.

Feng Shui teaches us autumn is the season of metal element, a time for precision, completion and focus.
Can you feel the autumn energy? Feel the essence of metal.
I look up into the sky now appearing in high definition.
As the humidity evaporates, the air becomes crisp with each new day.
Soon the leaves will begin to turn, drop and their cycle will complete.
We will admire, enjoy and bask in the beauty of the transformation before our eyes.
I am ready for this renewed clarity before me.
I am ready to step into the element of metal to absorb the qualities for my greatest good.
I am inspired to create our Autumn Equinox Immersion Workshop to
Activate Our Third Eye
Now is the time to align to bring clarity to our vision.
Begin your experience now.
Open your awareness to the subtle shifts each day brings.
Be with the element of Mother Nature.
Embody the grace of metal.
Embrace the gifts of our new season
It’s a beautiful day.

Summer Feng Shui Fun and Inspiration


happy buddahIs it any coincidence we associate summer with fun? Feng Shui teaches us that the Season of Summer is the essence of the Fire Element. Obviously for students, summer means “schools out!” – so why do “I” still get that giddy fun vacation feeling  when summer rolls around? And I have not been a calendar year student for quite some time.
The Element Fire tells it all. Fire is the light in our hearts, the light in our eyes.

When the lights are bright, all becomes clear, we are motivated, we awaken, we are ready for fun!

We enjoy the summer fun and find ourselves out into the bright evening, enjoying those late night sunsets and fireflies.
Fire ignites our curiosity, passions and our joy.

Fire inspires.

Fire is transformational.

May I share a tip with you?
We do not need to wait until summer to enjoy the essence of this fire element.
We can tap into this essence all year long.

When we find ourselves too serious, find some fire;
Connect with someone who lights up your life, brings you laughter.
Do something silly.
Laughter really is our best medicine. A good belly laugh will warm our body and cleanse our spirit with tears of joy. You know that feeling of release after a good laugh, ahhh…I feel at least ten pounds lighter and ten years younger!

When we are bored, find some fire;
Engaging our curiosity, will lead us to inspiration.
Look to the rainbow of inspiration, in nature, in music, in body and spirit.

Get up and dance your happy spirited soul ~ shine your light with laughter

Become the inspiration you seek in this world.
You are the fire that ignites our light.

The principles of Feng Shui have been around for thousands of years, that tells me there must be something to this! The universal aspect of Feng Shui which appears in all applications, based on the cycles of nature is 5 element theory.

Each element has layers of information: a season, time of day, direction, family member archetype, color, shape, and characteristic which relates to an expression in human nature.  In my practice, where I “feng shui people” before we address their space, one of the systems I use is called the 9 Star Ki. This system is based on the 9 cycles in nature; each cycle has its own nature and characteristics.  Each cycle is connected with one of the 5 elements in nature: water, tree, fire, earth and metal.  Aligning the 5 elements with the 9 cycles, 3 of the elements are refined further; there are 2 tree energies, 2 metal energies and 3 earth energies.  Hence the relation to the name of the system – star referring to cycle – ki referring to energy – 9 cycles of energy= “9 Star Ki”.

Using this 9 Star Ki system, each person has the potential for 3 elemental influences in their nature based on their year, month and day of birth.  The position of these elements will also have an influence on how the characteristics are expressed.   The most powerful aspect of this information is the behavior we express based on our elemental nature.The more we understand what makes us tick, the more we can create a lifestyle that supports us and have a better understanding of the people in our lives, creating more harmonious relationships.

Here are a few examples:

Metal ElementControl, Order, Precision A person who has an aspect of metal energy in their nature will be more comfortable when the situation is under control (usually their control) and their environment is neat and orderly, all things in their proper place.
Refined even further
“6 Metal” energy relates to father’s energy: authority, being in control of everyone and everything
“7 Metal” energy is the most sensitive to the environment, from scents and the feel of fabrics on their skin, to the most important: feeling the energy – walking into a crowded room can be quite uncomfortable as this nature is so sensitive, they can feel everything going on around them.

Understanding the depth of how much this aspect is a part of a person can help them make better decisions on how to operate with their strengths on a daily basis.

Combining the 9 Star Ki with reading the physical aspects of a person, the information about the individual’s make-up becomes more unique.  Our physical attributes are also connected with the 5 elements, for instance spiky hair and pointy nose adds the fire element.  Shadows under the eyes or a dome forehead adds water element.  These attributes may enhance an already present element or add an element not present in the birth year, month and day.

Feng Shui is brilliant because it is the one thing that ties us all together inside and out – who we are and how we relate to our environment.  As we create an environment where we are most comfortable and supported (based on the nature of the elements we most identify with) we can express ourselves in a productive manner.  We have a way to express our most inherent nature.

We also gain a clear understanding of the people in our lives. As we begin to understand their expressions through the 5 elements, there is no judgment. Knowing people are expressing their true nature allows compassion. 

Here is a brief overview of the 5 elements, which do you resonate with? Take a look around you… does your space reflect your true nature?
