Feng Shui is all about having the most supportive, inspiring and healthiest home. One of the first steps to achieving these Feng Shui goals is to give your home a really good cleaning.  But because Feng Shui also means living in harmony with the earth, your cleaning should use natural organic products that honor and nurture that relationship.

Using natural home cleaning products supports the sense of smell. Many cleaning products include natural essential oils, and thus will make your home smell nice by offering an “aromatherapy” effect. Lavender is a natural disinfectant. Imagine getting your home clean while enjoying that beautiful relaxing aroma. You can even add a few drops to your clothes before they go into the dryer or a few drops in the vacuum.

Lemon is another magical essential oil. You can use a few drops on stains on your clothes, or add a few drops to a gallon of water when mopping your white tile floors.

Tea tree essential oil offers antibacterial, antiseptic and antifungal properties. It works especially well to get rid of mildew and mold around the house.

By contrast, bleach and other chemicals in non-natural cleaning products can create smells and even toxic odors that are unbearable.

Simple Ingredients needed for making your own cleaning products include:

  • Baking soda
  • Citrus seed extract: Usually made from grapefruit seed, this natural preservative is a powerful antimicrobial agent. It is often sold as grapefruit seed extract
  • Essential oils: lavender, sweet orange; bergamot, rosemary, eucalyptus or tea tree; thyme; lemon or lemongrass; and peppermint or citronella
  • Cider Vinegar

And here are some great recipes for making your own natural cleaning products:

All purpose cleaner

9 parts water to 1 part white vinegar

For the Bathroo

10 drops of tea tree oil and three cups of white vinegar. Add  to your toilet bowl and let sit for 15 minutes.

Fill a spray bottle with half water and half vinegar for a  shower or bathtub cleaner. leave for 30 minutes before rinsing off.

 

Glass Cleaner

Mix two cups water, 1/2 cup white or cider vinegar, and 1 to 2 drops of lemon essential oil.

Tile Grout Cleaner

Mix 1 part water and 3 parts baking soda mixed into a paste. Apply to grout and let sit; and then scrub.

Cookware

Use sea salt with a little lemon juice or essential oil and scrub. Also, try baking soda and water made into a paste.

If you decide to purchase natural cleaning products instead of making them at home, there are  just a couple of qualities to look out for:

  • Nontoxic
  • Fragrance free
  • Biobased
  • Reduced and recyclable packaging
  • No VOCs
  • Pesticide Free
  • Biodegradable

Feng Shui principals are becoming so widespread, you can get some great natural brands at the local health food store. Noweven grocery stores carry them.

Dearest Amanda,

A moment in time to thank you deeply from my heart for the wonderful gift you have shared with us at the most amazing training, you shared your being, your sage knowledge, your wise soul and gave us so much of your love, it was truly fulfilling.

I really had no idea taking the course that my life would begin again, not without some uncomfortable steps but all managed by you in a deep cocoon of love, everyone felt safe.

I now understand what happened, and what birthed from all we experienced and for me it was ‘empowerment’…..and with some tweaks along away I do now realise all I have is ‘within’ and together with an amazing toolkit courtesy of the great masters, I feel gifted and amazed!

I had seen changes in my daughter after she took the course and her knowledge seemed boundless, she urged me to join (she must have known) and I thought gosh, I think this is something very special. I imagine everyone receives something a little different that is in perfect harmony with their needs.

In closing, thank you to your family for all the peace and nourishment they afford you and please let me know when we can once again hear your beautiful singing voice, I have an iTunes account at the ready.

Grace, love and blessing to you Amanda and all your family.

The conscious use of words and symbols can help you raise the energy vibration of your home and your body.

Let’s start with your home. The front door invites good positive energy flow into your home. What does your doormat say? “Welcome? This will clearly let the universe know you want to invite positive experiences into your life and home.

When you see mats that say “Go away” of “Welcome to Hell,” you can guess what kind of energy those attract!

We consist of 70% water, which Dr. Emottos has shown is a blueprint for consciousness. Depending on our intentions and emotions we can change the structure of water. His scientific experiments showed that glasses of water react differently to words such as hate and war compared to those such as love and peace. Hateful words lead to ugly frozen crystal formations; water exposed to words of love formed into beautiful crystals.

Similarly, negative words and images around our home impact our physical and energetic bodies. Art works have the same power. Images of war and darkness lower the vibration in the home and therefore, in our personal energy fields. This is true even of refrigerator magnets.

Often I visit homes and see statues of soldiers with spears on galloping horses or statues with missing heads; this usually represents a disconnect between body, mind and spirit. In one home, a multitude of clocks in every room were not running. That client’s main complaint was feeling stuck. The walls of another client’s home were covered in masks; she eventually shared that she is hiding from life. Images and messages tattooed and on the body also impact the energy field on a cellular level.

Take a moment and look at the accessories, statues, art work, messages on decals, even humorous ones, and notice the messages they are giving out. Items we have in our home create and support our reality. The home is an expression of internal healing; so keep only what you love and what inspires you. This is also true of the language we use with ourselves and others. Support yourself by avoiding expressions of victimhood; use words of empowerment. If you find yourself always saying things like “It’s just my luck”or “This is killing me” or “I will never be good enough” or “Life is hard,” these may become your reality. When you match your vibrational frequency with that which you fear,  you most definitely do not support yourself in living a fulfilled joyful life.

Instead of telling ourselves lies about not being good enough, we should come from a place of self love, speaking mindfully and kindly. To raise your vibrational energy and attract what you want in your life, use words such as:

  • I choose this

  • I am

  • I can

  • I have

  • I am grateful for . . . .

 

Words that we use to speak unkindly about others have the same impact as if we say these things about ourselves.

Whether it be the language of the artwork on your wall, the language of your thoughts, or the language of your speaking, use words with the high vibration that assists in the evolution of your Soul and supports you on this earthly journey.

Love

Science has proven that everything is made up of energy. In the Chinese art and science of Feng

Shui we call energy Chi. The Egyptians call it Ka, the Hebrew have Ruach, the Japanese have Ki,

Chi is condensed and dispersed in alternative cycles of positive (Sheng Chi) and negative (Sha

Chi) energy, and it manifests in various forms. Chi can not be destroyed; however, it can be

transformed. Energy can be blocked and build up negatively, or it can flow freely, which is what

we want in our homes. Feng Shui supports the energy flow in your environment, which directly

impacts the energy flow in your body and thus can unleash more of your energy and vitality.

As you read this article, realize that the magazine is comprised of particles of energy; the

computer you may be reading this on is exactly the same. The grass, the sun: it’s all energy.

Feng Shui translates to wind and water. When we consider the chi of water, we know we drink it,

wash with it, we cannot survive without it and we see this as positive energy. However a tsunami

can destroy an entire town. Wind is similar. It can feel amazing and caressing on a warm day. It

can be harnessed to create electricity. Yet too much wind can destroy cities. The key is balance.

In Feng Shui we differentiate three kinds of chi.

First we have heavenly chi, our destiny energy. This is the energy we are born with, the soul

agreements we have decided to have before we come into human form. Soul agreements are

made with your children, your lover, your mother and so on. When we bring Feng Shui into our

lives it does not change these pre-destined forces and experiences, but it makes what we would

perceive as a bad experiences less painful, more graceful.

Then there is human chi. This is your physical, emotional and mental chi. Feng Shui really

supports balance and alignment in your body, feelings and mind. Imagine living in a home that is

off-balance. You try self care, perhaps by seeing an acupunturist who brings your body into

balance. But when you return home to a cluttered and imbalanced environment you will likely

throw your body, mind and spirit out of alignment again.

Lastly we have earth chi. Earth chi includes mountains, water, the climate, and where we are

located in this earthly energy. Each of us is unique and has different needs; some people do well

in hot weather as others in cool. Feng Shui absolutely supports by connecting us with nature. We

spend 80% of our time inside our home or car or office and back again. Many of us have lost that

deep connection to Nature and the natural rhythms of the earth. Hundreds of years ago people

did not have clocks and calenders to tell them when to do things; they would just look up to the

sun and the moon and know when to plant their crops. They would speak to the land and

intuitively know what herbs would heal various ailments.

Feng Shui invites us to connect with Mother Earth, to commune with her, bring her elements

inside with plants, water fountains and crystals that harmonize our bodies and ground our enegy.

We are spiritual beings having human experiences and Feng Shui invites us to create a space

that connects the inside and the outside, bringing the colors of nature inside, soft browns, healing

greens and blues that remind us of nature’s abundant gifts.

“Solstice” comes from two Latin words: sol meaning “sun” and sistere meaning “to stand still” because it appeared as though the sun and moon had stopped moving across the sky. This

 longest night of the year, followed by a renewal of the sun, demonstrates the cyclical order of the cosmos. In this way, celebrating the solstice can be a beautiful remembrance that our lives are part of a larger order, always changing, always renewing.

If we look around us we can see that the

 rest of nature has quieted down, slowed down, or at least taken its activity underground into its roots or burrows. Since we are a part of nature, So this is the gift of the season: a pause to appreciate and to nurture our roots, our connections that support us so well all year long.

Winter Solstice is one of our oldest celebrations, dating back to the dawn of modern civilization some 30,000 years ago. For ancient people, the winter solstice was an awesome, mysterious, and powerful phenomenon tap into this magical time with ritual, intention and meditation.

A couple of suggestions for rituals for the winter solstice

  • Make a Christmas wreath which is an ancient traditi
    on made of evergreens, holly, and ivy. The wreath’s circle symbolizes the wheel of the year and the completion of another cycle.
  • Light a candle on the solstice and shine the light and reflect and meditate on your teachings and wisdom from the year gone by.
  • Cleanse your home with some sage or bells.
  • Cleanse your own energy field with some sage, rose water, or a nice cleansing salt bath
  • Decorating the tree with objects resembling fruits, nuts, berries, to acknowledge
  • the gifts of abundance from Mother earth

Feng Shui for Wealth, money and Abundance with love

Your surroundings have a powerful effect on what you attract into your life. When the energy around you is blocked or unbalanced, your prosperity, health and relationships can be adversely affected. Feng Shui improvements unblock the flow of positive energy, remove negative influences and allow you to attract the prosperity and abundance you deserve.

To determine the flow in your environment ask yourself when you enter your home whether your energy rises or falls? Close your eyes and notice how you feel. What gets in your way? Where do you flow smoothly? Are any areas blocked off from you? Do all doors open fully? Are there large piles of clutter?

To invite in prosperity, start clearing the clutter. Throw out junk and get rid of things such as old papers, empty boxes and broken items to help energize your home. This de-cluttering should extend to your car, purse, garage, computer inbox and desktop.

Next, decide which broken items are draining your prosperity and which can be repaired. Let go of anything broken, cracked or chipped that cannot be repaired. Replace burned out light bulbs, for if your rooms are dark, so is your financial future. Repair broken mirrors for they reflect how you see yourself. Clean windows for they tell you how you look out on the world.

Dead plants symbolize dead energy; replace them with living plants to grow your wealth.  Tighten loose doorknobs and handles. If your handles are loose you cannot get a grip on your money: tighten them and wealth will be within you grasp.

The most important area is your front door, where all the energy enters. A clean welcoming front door attracts prosperity. The second most important area associated with wealth is the southeast area. Make sure there is no clutter in this area, write affirmations to support wealth and place them here, as well as a symbolic item that makes you feel abundant.

The third most important area is the north, associated with career. Make sure this area is open and flowing. Write an affirmation about the success of your career.

The fifth area is your kitchen where again you should clear clutter including old, stale foods in cupboards and refrigerator. Use your oven; an unused stove implies untapped resources and opportunities. Kitchen counters should be clear with only items you use on a daily basis. Fourth most important is the northwest, called “heaven’s gate” symbolizing helpful people. Keep this area bright and open, with no trashcans outside or inside so you can create a clear channel for energy to enter into your home and life.

A new wallet or purse attracts money. Remove scraps of paper, credit cards for closed accounts or for those you never use. Be sure your wallet is clean, neat, and organized.

Other keys to prosperity are related to your beliefs about your deservedness. Do you really believe you are deserving and can be prosperous?

I invite you to repeat these affirmations daily to attract prosperity:

  • I deserve to be prosperous and wealthy
  • The more I give, the more I receive
  • I am a trust fund baby of the universe
  • I am a magnet to money

Money is a form of energy that needs to flow through your life, not just into it. Living generously within your means makes space for even greater abundance. If you don’t yet have ample money to share, give as generously as you can of your time, energy, compassion, and appreciation.

Express gratitude. The more you are grateful for what you have, no matter how small, the more you will have to be grateful for, including money.

Intentional Feng Shui Affirmations

 Affirmations for your home. In intentional Feng Shui each direction and area of your home is related with an area of your life. I suggest writing affirmations that get placed in each of the directions of your home. Affirmation are to be written in present tense and positive.

I suggest writing them knowing they are done and then detaching and trusting in the divine process of life and know that what manifests will be for your highest good and the highest good of all.

Feng Shui, an art and science developed more than 5,000 years ago in China, creates joy, harmony, health and abundance in everyday life and in human spaces. In order to bring balance into such spaces, we analyze the arrangement of buildings, rooms and furniture to determine the ways in which those arrangements affect body, mind and spirit. Feng Shui balances each environment with the five elements water, wood, fire, metal and earth, offering an invitation to connect with the natural elements.

In Classical Feng Shui we also explore geographic directions and locations, time and function. We work with color to enhance good energy and neutralize unproductive energy, tuning those energies to the rhythms of the earth and the universe.

When you walk into a spa that has good Feng Shui, you feel as if you have arrived at a home away from home. You feel safely embraced by a place in which you can let go and unwind—peaceful, present. You move into the parasympathetic nervous system that allows body and mind to relax.

In the more than fifteen years that I have been practicing Feng Shui, I have seen the need people have to live in an environment that supports their thriving and the powerful effects Feng Shui can have on their lives.

Spas and salons all over the globe have reported that their use of Feng Shui principles has increased sales and profits, attracted more customers, improved customer loyalty, while creating a more harmonious atmosphere, reducing stress and lowering conflict levels. An environment balanced by Feng Shui motivates staff, improves co-operation and commitment, lowers staff turnover and absenteeism, increases teamwork, raises productivity, and improves public relations.

When bringing Feng Shui into your salon or spa, honor the natural elements. The sounds of water can be so calming, but make sure the water is flowing towards the center of the building. Plants with soft rounded leaves bring the element of wood and improve air quality. Crystals or river rocks add the earth element of grounding and centering. For fire, light natural soy candles with scents of lavender, citrus or peppermint essential oils for relaxation and renewal. Present the element of metal in statues or accessories for clarity and elegance.

The front entrance should be open and welcoming, a beautiful space, like a smiling face, welcoming clients. The reception area should be off to the side and all five senses honored, with healthy refreshments, inviting textures and neutral music. Soft images in art works, earth tones of tans and browns or greens— with few energizing reds and oranges— will all sooth and encourage relaxation.

Some Suggestions to Implement for 2015

Create a Vision Board Collage for the year 2015. Start with images that express what you want to “manifest” during the year. Consider the areas of love, joy, vibrant health and empowerment, then create a collage that makes your heart sing every time you look at it. Keep it somewhere that you’ll see each day and that’s private just for you.

Clear the clutter from your home. One of the most important things you can do for your finances is simply to clean up clutter! Throwing out junk and getting rid of things like excess paper, empty boxes and broken items can go a long way toward energizing your home for prosperity. This includes your car, your purse, your garage, your computer’s inbox and even your desk top.

 

Create an altar to reconnect with the deeper parts of ourselves.

 

Clear out the old and welcome in the new energies. Cleanse the energy in your home by burning sage, ringing bells, singing and opening windows and doors.  Start at the front door and work clockwise around your home, getting into all the corners, nooks and crannies with either the sage or bells.

 

Express your gratitude for your home. The energy you give to it is the energy you will receive from it. The more you notice, appreciate and express gratitude for blessings received (no matter how small), the more good things will come your way, including money. Start a gratitude journal to track your daily thanks.

 

Clean your Front Door. The front door is where all good energy enters your home; a clean door attracts prosperity while a dirty or faded door repels it.

 

Replace burned out light bulbs. If your rooms are dark so is your financial future. Replace burned out bulbs and brighten your possibilities to attract wealth.

 

Clean your Windows. Windows are the eyes of your home; dirty windows cloud vision but clean windows represent a clear view of the opportunities. Windows are truly your view to the world so also repair all cracks and broken panes.

 

Remove Dead Plants. Dead plants symbolize dead energy. Replace them with healthy, living plants to grow wealth in your life.

 

Repair broken mirrors. If you look at a broken mirror you can’t see things smoothly or clearly. Remove or replace it to reflect a smooth road to prosperity.

 

Tighten loose door knobs and handles. If your handles are loose you cannot get a grip on your money. Tighten them and wealth will be within your grasp.

 

Add artwork.  Being surrounded by artwork you love and things that inspire you will enter your subconscious all day.  Art is also an excellent way to help create the symbols and images needed to help attract positive energy.

 

Do something loving and nurturing for YOU!—Daily!  Self massage, yoga, walk in nature, eat healthy, connect with the people you love!

Create a Vision Board and place somewhere that you see daily that is private for you. 

Write an affirmation in each of the sections of your home; write in present tense and all positive.

Cleanse and protect your energy daily using visualizing white light all around you or the violet flame.
