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!

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.
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 […]
