Un-welcoming?!

I initially wanted to illustrate this article with a rotten teeth smile but the photos were so terrifying that I changed my mind!

house smileWe know that your entrance and entry door as well as the front yard of your home is like the smile on your face, it welcomes you back home… It is also how your friends and visitors get their first impression.

Garbage everywhere, broken down cars in the ‘driveway’ to only name a couple of ‘wrongs’ on the illustration below.

Beware… You seldom get a second chance to give a 1st impression!

This photo is real and was NOT taken after a cyclone!

Life of the occupants will change in no time when they’ll clean up their yard, fix fences and remove broken cars. Feng Shui starts as easy as that!

Once the front of the house is de-cluttered, then and only then, you start looking at the feng Shui inside of the home.

Keep the good work.

Feng Shui yours,

Feng Shui – Back to Basics

Always a good refresher!

Different Feng Shui Schools, easy teachings with Roseline Deleu

Feng Shui, two Chinese words Feng = Wind, Shui = Water. These two words translate in our world today as the “Art of Placement”. Through famous author Lillian Too who wrote over 100 books on the topic – these two Chinese words can often be daunting and confusing for many. There are many approaches (Schools) of Feng Shui; those that I follow, that I use for consultations, and that I teach to anyone who wish to become a Feng Shui consultant, are inspired by the Black Hat School and the Form Schools. That Feng Shui approach is easy to follow and based more on static magic square, intuition and landscapes, rather than worry of Compass directions (the latest being a more typical Asian approach).When Feng Shui started
Where our ancestors placed their huts/homes centuries ago, was based on common sense certainly protecting themselves and their family from cold winds (Feng) and floods or excess of water (Shui). This existed in ALL countries – yes, worldwide – hence why what we refer to Feng Shui today can be applied in all cultures while respecting some basic principles.

Chi is the most important component of Feng Shui. Chi is a life essence, a motivating force. It animates all things. This word could also be a synonym of cosmic breath or energy.

Encourage Healthy ChiThere are 3 different types of Chi that influence our lives:

1. Chi animates our bodies
The quality of our personal Chi can be improved with daily exercises, good food and a balanced life. It is part of your choices and responsibilities.

Ley Lines2. Chi circulates in the Earth
The Earth energies influence our health. Underground water veins and ley lines have to be detected before completing a physical healing process.

3. Chi permeates the universe
We cannot change our time of birth nor the stars in the sky at that particular moment. Heaven ChiFeng Shui relates this to Heaven Chi. In order to help us achieve life changes, consider heaven on earth and project it onto your home, sometimes to your office and daily surroundings. Placing your furniture to promote a gentle Chi flow alters your lives for the better! Would your astrology forecasts an accident on a particular day, having a correct Chi flow around you will decrease the strength of your life lesson and for example, you might just twist your ankle rather than crashing your new car.

Each kind of Chi influences the other. All of us possess a personal Chi. We vibrate; our aura expands and retracts depending on our health and moods. Our cells continually regenerate, yet our basic self is the same, that constant self is our personal Chi. Chi is the essence maintaining our physical and emotional balance, our environmental stability and the universal equilibrium.

Chi flows fast, slow, up, down, high low, in, out. It also rises, falls, sinks, floats, bends, twists, curves, inflates, and deflates.

Chi travels along curves, waves, spirals, mazes, labyrinths or straight lines. It pulses through electrical fields and disperses with the wind.

sha chiBad Chi
Negative Chi is called Sha Chi. Chi becomes Sha Chi when it carries unfavourable currents that will affect you negatively.

Sha Chi drips. It oozes through cracks, holes, broken windows and chipped items. It accumulates and stagnates in dead corners and sharp angles. Sha Chi is aggravated by bad smells, too bright lights and loud irritating noises. Sha Chi can be felt, sensed, smelled, heard and tasted. It is dangerous, sharp, rotten, contaminated, polluted, toxic and painful. It can be internal or external, hidden or apparent and it affects physical, mental, spiritual and social conditions.  Sha Chi is also produced on a grand scale by geographical faults and fissures in the earth.

Good Chi meanders

Sha Chi speeds

Easy Exercise about the Chi concept:

Look at your home with ‘Feng Shui’ eyes: do you feel that you have too many straight lines, a long corridor or any other Sha Chi around?

Get inspired from the cartoon illustrations and find your own ideas to turn Sha Chi feeling better at home webinto Chi to quickly reap the benefits – it often takes less than 9 days to feel the difference.

Stay away Ducks!

Tags

, , , , , , , , , ,

DSC_0109 wA nice and clean swimming pool located preferably in sectors 1, 3 or 4 of your block of land, is very auspicious as long as it stays clean.

Too often, ducks (and other bird life) use it to our detriment and leave their ‘marks’ into what do our best to keep as clean as possible waters. 😦

An easy trick to keep ducks and some other birds away from it, is simply to place the shape of an eagle in flight as illustrated on these two photos.

DSC_0108 wA sticker of an eagle in flight keeps ducks away.

Cheap solution and less use of chemicals, much better for your skin.

2017 May predictions

LIFE PATH, CAREER – Phoenix
Like the phoenix, you are reborn from you ashes. The past few weeks, you felt a little stuck and you took time to cocoon, did some researches and put your current life into perspective. During May, the opportunities arise and the idea of changing your life style and/or your career, are now emerging.

LOVE, RELATIONSHIPS – Forgiveness
Forgive and your burden will lift. Whoever, in a past relationship, may have hurt you… it is you who are still carrying the weight of that sadness. People often refer to “a weight on your shoulders”, I’d say it is also “a weight on your lungs”. Forgive what those previous partners, lovers, friends, said or did and you will be free from your suffering and will breathe again freely and abundantly.

RESPECT, FAMILY, HEALTH, PAST – Your Palace
Turn your home into your palace – yes, it is your castle! Only surround yourself with quality and happy memories.

ABUNDANCE, WEALTH & MONEY – Overspending
When you shop and see an item that you feel attracted to, ask yourself “Do I really need it? Can I live without it?”   You become more aware of over-consumerism and all the rubbish that we throw back into the dump sadly filling our planet. Time to watch (again) Wall-E (Walt Disney movie) a great kids movie with plenty of messages for us all.

YOU – Ideas
Creativity is the key to your balance during this month of May. Paint, craft, clean, move furniture, change decor or do anything else that your hearth fancy!

HELP, HELPERS, TRAVELS Befriend a rock
Ask a rock to choose you – yes indeed, you are not the one choosing this time – you will feel the attraction! For one month, every night as you go to bed, take this rock in your hands and talk to it. Tell it the best thing that happened to you that day. Place the rock onto your bedside table till the morning, then take it with your in your pocket or leave it there as you wish. See how better you sleep and how rock magic brings joy into your life.

IDEAS, CHILDREN & PROJECTS – Learn the Power of Prayers
Whatever denomination or beliefs you live, teach children the power of prayers and the first important key: gratitude!

SPIRITUALITY, STUDY, OPENNESS – Interested
A new spiritual perception crosses your path and you are feeling keen to learn more.

WELL-BEING, SELF CONFIDENCE, RECOGNITION – Pink and Green
Whenever you feel down, wear light green and/or pink clothes and/or underwear (they are closer to your skin). Same applies for gentlemen! Yes, a good excuse to go shopping for the right colours now. Then you will ask yourself… Do I really need them? 😀

May 2017 – You are reborn

Too dangerous to help by email

Tags

, , ,

I often receive emails from readers asking for Feng Shui tips. As an answer for them, I  write a post on this blog for all of you so you all learn.

Unfortunately, there are times where I cannot help, when things are too challenging and in this example below, you can read through the lines that this person is in a very difficult situation.
The best is to suggest her to see a professional counselor as an email or a post, in this case, will never replace professional guidance and I’m sure that you can read here that she needs it.

Email received early April 2017
“I needed to run from my mother as far as I could as well as from my sister. I am still at her house I entrenched in her misery about my life because I couldn’t bring myself to wash her away. I walked out this afternoon and but back in again, it is destroying me and my dog. I wish I had left. 
I cannot believe how awful a place  and people can make you feel or do destructive things to yourself. I thought going to stay with mother would be protective… I but I was totally wrong. I’ve lost all self confidence and am destructive in my thinking to myself, I can’t believe it.  In reality have I  known this deep down and therefore left years ago to a productive life. Unsure how to fix myself out of it. I left my life behind five months ago and nothing but misery and self doubt since coming here. – N.N.

A Feng Shui consultant does look at the psychology of the home but will never replace the help for the person that she will seek with a professional medical doctor, psychologist or psychiatrist.

Always follow common sense.

LIFE PATH, CAREER – Open your Eyes

LOVE, RELATIONSHIPS – Connect with the Stars
We are stardust. Look at the sky filled with millions of stars and wonder where did we come from? Talk and connect with stars as you go to bed and look at them through your window. Ask them to guide you to meet your soul mate for those who are single – or – support your current relationship for those in couple.

Whenever you worry about your finance, wear emerald green and purple blue. These colours will help you focus on positivity and you may well see new opportunities coming your way! In the meantime, no dramas, you perfectly know that you don’t need much to be happy.

There is a little voice coming from your heart that instigates you to live or revive your passion. What are you waiting for!?

Test your Feng Shui Bed Placement

Tags

, , , , , , , , , , ,

Dear Roseline, Since moving the bed what I thought was a better fengshui position, less good came… I believed fengshui bed position would do so much good? Oh dear 😦 – A.N.

Dear Reader,

BedroomI very seldom suggest clients or readers about bed directions calculations, simply because people are then stuck onto one belief rather than doing their own experiences and be empowered to find out by themselves.

In your case, you probably calculated your direction based on another school of Feng Shui, following another master. Everything happens for a reason, this time, it was for you to get empowered and turn your bed around again.

I always suggest to everyone to test their directions for one week at the time (maximum), the results are shown usually within a couple of days. You monitor and write down what has happened during that week and when you had the best week, this is your best direction.

Yes, indeed, either you move your bed around your room or you simply move the orientation your bed without moving the furniture – which can be fun sometimes 🙂

Keep moving till you monitor your best direction and things will settle.

Best regards,

Could-do-better Shop Entry

Tags

, , , , , , , , , , ,

Pursuing my walk in this Jakarta very Chic and State of the Art Commercial Furniture and Decoration Center (see previous post), I choose to show you an entry that is not welcoming at all  😦entree peut mieux faire

I went to this Center several times and sadly never saw any clients in this particular show room that offers beautifully designed and made furniture.

In fact, the entry to the shop sees 3 large shiny sets of black tiles surrounded by white pebbles. The combination itself is a good idea – the little white pebbles are quantities and are looking good around the black tiles (symbolizing the element of water that we need in an entry). The biggest problem is that the tiles are not placed in a Feng Shui friendly way. They are scattered and showing no stability towards the showroom entry itself.

If the Chi doesn’t feel welcome, nor will the clients.

What could the tiler have done? Instead than using large tiles, he may have chosen to curve the path and use tiny mosaïques tiles f.ex. black with maybe a touch of gold or silver and he could have possibly have a better effect.

A challenge would remain for this entry though, because the tiles that have been placed in the Commercial Center itself are slanted and (those on the left of this photo) and create a guillotine effect.

A good Feng Shui encourages curves, circles and avoids sharp angles and poison arrows in an entry.

Feng Shui is the Art of Placement and can be applied everywhere!
