What is on Feng Shui Lou’s mind?

December 21, 2012

For those of us who have been tracking the predictions surrounding the end of the Mayan calendar, December 2012 is finally here. So far, predictions of the end of the world on the 21st appear to be rather unlikely. The volcanic eruptions and earthquakes have moderated and severe storms appear to be taking their place. Most people’s personal focus is shifting into a holiday mood while the feeling of time compression continues to increase.

From my perspective however, I have been feeling lately that the overall energies are improving. I sense more at ease handling perturbations and challenges this month than the previous months. A certain amount of tension and stress has lifted and now as problems arise, they are resolved more easily and with less emotion. Have you felt that way too?

It may be my imagination, but everything appears a bit brighter. For example, when I’m outside walking, colors of nature – trees, plants, flowers appear to be brighter, clearer, and sharper. I can’t explain it although I suspect it is related to the higher frequencies we are experiencing.

Life may be a little more exciting between now and the first of the year, so stay connected with your loved ones – family and friends. Experience the best joy this time can bring and do amp up your “Inner Light” more than usual for the remaining of the year. Happy Holidays!

The Dining Room

General comments

The Dining Room is best located towards the front of the home but the table should not be in direct view from the front door. Nevertheless, it is one of the first rooms seen as one enters the home’s foyer, the look and feel should be inviting. As such, it should create an invitation to a grand feast. 

Factors to Consider

Table and Chairs

         Choose rich colors and woods for the table and chairs. Your guests ought to feel comfortable and so the chairs must be somewhat comfortable, rather than hard, stiff and straight.

Round or oval tables have better Feng Shui than square or rectangular ones. To get around this dilemma, purchase the rectangular or square table with well rounded corners. Glass table tops have the worst Feng Shui. You see through to the legs and the CH’I does the same causing the food energy to leave the table. Furthermore, the edges of the plane surface act as knives aimed right at the guests’ stomachs adding indigestion to the meal. Glass tables look very classy and modern but cold, thus hardly add comfort. If you must have the glass table, use a table cloth to cover it during dining.

Décor

The longest wall close to the kitchen typically has a buffet along it so a large gilded framed mirror can be appropriate to hung there. The mirror adds brightness, amplifies the CH’I of whatever food or silverware is placed on the buffet and the server can see the table. The opposite wall […]

The Laws of Cosmic Awareness

In my last 2 newsletters, I spoke of the New Being as one wherein Love and Mercy are to become the foremost and fundamental attributes of all future humans. Cosmic Awareness describes Love and Mercy as Cosmic Laws. In those Issues (2 and 3), I printed the descriptions of the Law of Love and the Law of Mercy. There is one more Law of Cosmic Awareness that I want to give you. It is called the Universal Law. “The Universal Law is that knowledge, that awareness, that all living things, all life has within it that vitality, that strength to gather into it all things necessary for its growth and fruition.”

This law is worthy of our contemplation, especially when we feel like we cannot cope any longer with life’s trials. It encourages us to persist in whatever difficulty we are immersed in, knowing that we can prevail.

Take for example, an acorn. When planted, there is every expectation that when it bursts forth and begins to grow, it will become a strong oak tree – not half a tree, not 2/3 of a tree but a whole, complete tree. Everything needed for the oak to flourish is already present in the acorn. Similarly, the Universal Law guarantees that we too have all we need to attain what we came here to accomplish and no less. We can do it!

2012 and Beyond

It’s the end of September and the time compression and planetary chaos seems to be ever increasing. Are you feeling like the day zips by and it is hard to remain focused to accomplish even simple goals by end of the day? Well, you are not alone. The feedback I am receiving from family, friends, acquaintances and even strangers follows a similar pattern. There are emergencies, flare-ups, frustration, forgetfulness – you name it. The news is rife with examples too. So you’re not going crazy and no need to freak out. This is just the higher frequencies we are experiencing.

Scientists are discovering new types of cosmic particles apparently emanating from the Milky Way’s central sun that are bombarding our solar system – which of course includes us.

Like it or not, we are going through a significant change that is an expansion of consciousness, mind and body. The apparent chaos is a breaking up of all the old systems that must occur and from the chaos will arise a new organization of the planet and a much better way of life for everyone. It is already happening, my friends.

For me, these days, I imagine myself in a very large seaworthy ship navigating stormy waters and knowing that I am safe while waiting for the storm to subside. Sometimes though, I see myself on a surfboard riding the crest of an enormous wave and having a heck of a ride!

What is on Feng Shui Lou’s mind?

In my last newsletter, I spoke of the New Being as one wherein Love and Mercy are becoming the foremost and fundamental attributes of all future humans. Cosmic Awareness describes Love and Mercy as Cosmic Laws.

In Issue 2, I printed the description for the Law of Love. Now I wish to describe the Law of Mercy which is the second part of New Being.

The Law Mercy is that law which allows one to forgive all error – to forgive equally those who have erred against you, as you have erred against them.            This is to be merciful and to be merciful is akin to the Law of Love and if one can obey the Law of Mercy there can be no error in the world”.

As the second component of New Being, the Law of Mercy is symbolically represented by a blue pearl. New Being then, is the combination of both laws depicted symbolically as two intersecting gold rings (Law of Love) encircled by the blue pearl (Law of Mercy).

This New Being is what we must incorporate and become as we move forward into 2012 and beyond. In order to survive the changes that are already occurring to us and the planet, we must transcend our selves into this New Being. We must function within the Blue Pearl of Love and Mercy for the planet and humanity’s survival.

By The Way – Did you know that Einstein and other well known scientists were also dowsers?

Issue 2012 -1 explained the Feng Shui of the Office and Study. In Issue 2 we discussed a Child’s Bedroom. Now we proceed to the kitchen.

The Kitchen

General comments

The kitchen is the room where our nutrition is prepared – now that is a profound statement eh what? It has always been the central location because of its important function. Good health and abundant prosperity begin here. Without proper nutrition and our optimum health, how else can we enjoy life? In ancient times, the hearth and its health giving food was indeed the measure of one’s prosperity and success.

In Feng Shui, the modern stove takes the place of the hearth and can determine not only health but wealth as well. Therefore it behooves us to have the very best kitchen Feng Shui. In my practice, when my clients are having financial difficulties I always check out the kitchen since it is one of the primary determining locations for abundance.

Factors to Consider

Kitchen & Stove Placement:

The kitchen’s best placement is in the center of rear part of the home – the Li Gua with Fire as its attribute. Second choices would be still in the back on either corner.

The stove placement is best when the cook has a view of the kitchen and does not have his or her back to the door and thus cannot see the activities going on in the kitchen. For this reason, placing the stove in an island […]

Jumping right into 2012, this is going to be a fast paced, tumultuous and most memorable year! Not to worry though. Simply see yourself inside a truly seaworthy ship and safely riding out the storm.

There are many 2012 pundits out there espousing various outcomes of the end of the Mayan calendar December 21st. Lucky you, because now I’m going to provide my take on it too. As always, it is best is not to believe my words but to simply question and check things out yourself. Anyway, in the 70’s, certain spiritual “readings” were given by Cosmic Awareness (the same source as that of Edgar Cayce) through “Trance Interpreters.” There were several readings about the “New Being.” Awareness indicated that this was a personal and planetary spiritual evolvement that would be gaining momentum in the near future. The New Being is one wherein Love and Mercy would be the foremost valued attributes of all beings. This is exactly what I foresee – a movement encompassing Love and Mercy growing over the entire planet. You may have noticed this yourself – an enormous outpouring of loving and caring coming from all kinds of people all over the world. I think that is what 2012 and beyond is all about.

On a more mundane note, I have just created a new curriculum for obtaining a Feng Shui Certification. You may read the details below.

Inside Space

Last issue of 2011 treated the Feng Shui of Hallways. In this and following issues we will evaluate various rooms and their respective functions.

The Office and Study Spaces

Desk

         The desk must be positioned in an optimal location where there is the least amount of Sha (negative) CH’I striking it. That is to say, the desk must not be placed in direct alignment with the entry door otherwise strong CH’I can cause projects and plans to go awry. Depending on the doorway location, the rear left and right corners are best. The person sitting at the desk should have a view of the door. Desks should not be positioned against and facing a neither wall nor have a high bookcase in front either. Furthermore, one should not sit with their back to the door.       

Chair

The chair should afford ample support with arms and a strong back. Ergonomic chairs may be better for your back than a poorly designed chair, but “wiggly” chair backs do not provide good Feng Shui support thus directly weakening your business posture. Make sure there is adequate space for the chair to move about without banging into walls or other furniture. The chair is better when it is on wheels and moves easily around.

Windows

Offices with large windows can lose much useful CH’I and adversely affect your finances and your ability to negotiate deals. If you are situated so that you can see a great view when you look up from your seat, you will easily […]

What is on Feng Shui Lou’s mind?

We are living this year in a state of time compression. Significant events are happening every day without a breather. Whether it’s the freedom revolts in the Middle East, or the floods, tornadoes and earthquakes here in the US. You must be aware of this too. We have protests like the Tea Party and now recently the Wall Street protests that are gaining momentum across the country. The world’s banking systems are teetering out of control and a new crisis is imminent.

I have been living in Arizona for 20 plus years and have never seen anything like the dust storms that hit us the last few months. The local weathermen very casually dubbed them “haboobs” as though they were typical dust storms of the desert. Persons living in Arizona all their lives 50-60 years and more told me they have never seen dust storms like these. Connie and I were standing outside getting ready to go for a swim in the pool when I looked up and saw a huge brown wall approaching us really fast. We ran inside and within a minute it was so dark with dirt it was like night and we couldn’t see our wall about 50 feet away. I later learned this haboob was miles wide and a mile high. To me it looked like a giant horizontal vacuum cleaner brush going counterclockwise churning up dust forward from the ground and pulling it up straight into the sky – very different than a twister or “dust devil” as they are called out here. Forgive me if I seem conspiratorial at this point but at the time all I could think was: “This is man made and definitely not natural!”

As I write this tonight (Oct 4th) there are two CME’s just firing off from the sun towards earth. Mitch Battros (www.earthmedia.com) has been quite accurate predicting that within 48 – 72 hours storms, earthquakes and volcanic eruptions occur on our planet. I sincerely hope these will be not very destructive. However, the number and severity of these Coronal Mass Ejections are continuing to increase in frequency and strength and you should definitely take heed.

The Channelings from the Galactic Federation continue to speak about disclosure, landings, and significant changes to our government and banking systems. Great technological advances that will break the grip of the oil & coal combines are predicted. The Stellars are becoming quite insistent that the time for all this is now. Could 11/11/11 be the launch date? Stay tuned….

The first area to evaluate is the front door and entry – the foyer.
