Too Much Stuff!

A home full of clutter can affect your health

Do you sometimes look at your storage room, desk, closet or kitchen countertop and feel absolutely overwhelmed at the ‘stuff’ that needs to be sorted, filed, paid or disposed of? So, you end up grabbing a handful of cookies and doing nothing!

The reason you may feel overwhelmed is because you are reacting to negative life force energy – or Chi – and are weighed down by the depressing impact of clutter.

Walk a Labyrinth for Peace of Mind

One element of feng shui that most people forget to focus on is their own personal chi! Aside from mediation, one of the best ways to connect with self and achieve a sense of calmness is to walk a labyrinth. If you have never done so, I highly recommend it! Here's what you need to know about labyrinths...

What is a Labyrinth?

A labyrinth is a single path or unicursal tool for personal, psychological and spiritual transformation. Labyrinths are thought to enhance right brain activity.

The Symbolism of Cinnabar or 'Dragon's Blood'


Researching and writing about cinnabar ... which is often referred to as 'Dragon's Blood' ... has been an interesting journey! While I do not profess to be a feng shui master, a chemist or a sage, what I surmise from my research (from various sources) is this:

  • Cinnabar was recognized as a mystical powder because it is produced from volcanic and/or hot springs activity.
  • The heat that results in the creation of cinnabar comes from the very heart (centre) of the earth. 
  • Its red colour depicts both the heart (blood) and burning embers of a fire. As a result, it has the ability to both foster positivity and cause destruction.
  • The ‘magic’ of cinnabar is that it opens doors of opportunity for the future while putting negative experiences of the past to rest.

The Cinnabar Story

An essential ingredient for Feng Shui rituals

When I began working as a feng shui consultant, I was apprehensive about performing chi adjustments rituals. This was due, in part, because I lacked confidence and experience. But the real reason I avoided rituals was that I had no idea where to buy cinnabar.

To be honest, I wasn’t even exactly sure what cinnabar was. All I knew was that cinnabar was a red powder that contained trace amounts of mercury — and you have to be very careful when handling it — and that His Holiness Profession Lin Yun included it on the list of required ingredients for the majority of his rituals.

The Bagua Mirror

A cure for the common energy concern.... the ‘Aspirin’ of feng shui

It is an odd-looking ‘decoration’ that – to most people – might seem strangely out of place when hanging above your front door. Yet to those who practice and teach the ancient art of feng shui, a house is not a home without a bagua mirror.

Bagua (pronounced ‘bah-gwa’ not ‘bag-gwa’) mirrors are one of best-known feng shui symbols of protection and are often referred to as the ‘aspirin’ of feng shui. In some schools of feng shui it may also be referred to as a ‘Pa Kua.’ Call it what you want … they are one of the easiest and most effective cures that can be used to safeguard your home or business from negative energy forces

Crystal Clear Energy at Work

Adapted from The Complete Guide to Feng Shui Crystals, by Terri Perrin

Early works on astrology that date back to 400 BC make elaborate observations on the origin and power of natural crystals such as amethyst, hematite and quartz. Their effectiveness for healing, protection and decoration cannot be disputed and is documented in ancient Atlantis, South America, Egypt and Tibet.
Many schools of Feng Shui recommend the use of natural crystals and spheres as an energy enhancement because they characterize the earth element and, when cut to form the spherical shape, they are representative of the Universe and everything contained in it. So, when I mention feng shui ‘crystals’ to my clients, most people immediately think I am talking about crystals from the earth.

Retiring Your Feng Shui Cures

The New Year is typically a time for making resolutions about things you want to change in your life. Personally, I don't make 'resolutions' .... but I do set powerful intentions.

In addition to setting intentions, one thing you can also do to ring in the New Year is to do some 'housekeeping' relating to any feng shui cure items you have in your home. This includes bagua mirrors, crystal balls, flutes, wind chimes, etc.

Enjoy this guest blog post by well-respected feng shui consultant, Gwynne Warner, 10,000 Blessings Feng Shui. The following article is posted with her permission and blessing. Enjoy!

NOW is the time to look over all of your Feng Shui cures to see what needs refreshing or retiring.

Don't be attached to your cures - when it's time to let them go, let them go! Please don't let the auspicious red ribbon or thread get dingy or thread-bare. And if any cure looks or feels tired or worn, falls and breaks, chips or scratches, you should immediately replace with a fresh, new cure.
