Feng Shui tip for dog owners

The commanding position.

The commanding position is essential in Feng Shui. You are in a commanding position when you can see the entrance door, in other words, see who and what is coming. Not being in a commanding position, generates stress and anxiety and can create over controlling behaviors to compensate.

One essential area when you need to be in a commanding position is the bedroom, a place where you spend a lot of time sleeping, thus being in a Yin receptive state. The bed should be placed in a way that you can see the entrance door but not directly facing the door and not against the wall. If there is no space for this kind of set up, you can place a large mirror opposite the bed, which would allow you to see who and what is coming. You can also hang a bell to the door knob.

You, or any member of your family, as pet owner/s, should be in a commanding position but not your animal who should not be in charge and constantly on alert.

If your dog is restless and barks a lot, look at the placement of its bed.

  •     Except in the case of a guarding or a service dog, crates and beds should not be placed in a commanding position or in the mouth of qi (areas located directly in front of the entrance door of any room). They should be placed in a quiet place where the animal can relax. (it also applies for outdoor pens).

Feng Shui and Astrology

When it comes to Chinese astrology, most people are familiar with the Twelve Zodiac Animals. In Feng Shui, we use the Chinese zodiac and also the 9 Star Qi, which is an oldest form of astrology.

Like Feng Shui, The 9 Star Qi system is based on the dynamic between Yin and Yang and was developed from one of the oldest books in the world, the I Ching or Book of Changes. Beside the 9 stars, the energy of the universe present in your birth year, it features a nine-year cycle similar to the passing of the seasons from early spring to late winter. If Feng Shui is dealing with space, the 9 Star Qi is dealing with time. What was the star at the time you were born? What are your potentials? How do you relate to the other stars? Where are you within the nine-year cycle? Is it time to plan, to relax, to initiate changes? A Feng Shui consultant will use this Chinese astrology system to get insights about the energy of the clients and to optimize their space accordingly.

The Lo Shu or magic square 

Lo Shu magic square.docxEach star corresponds to a number, which is your primary number or profound nature. You calculate it by adding the numbers of your birth year, then subtract the sum from 11. All years begin on February 4th. For example, people born in 1998 (on or after February 4th) have the number 2. (1+9+9+8=27) (2+7=9) (11-9=2)

Each number is associated with an element (wood, water—), a color or colors in the same spectrum and a season. Roughly, your primary number (which is similar to the Sun sign in Western astrology) takes the qualities of the element. A 2 Black Earth person will be supportive, service-oriented, practical and detail oriented.

* All numbers and elements interact with each other in a supportive or controlling dynamic. Earth will be supported by Fire, drain by Metal, controlled by Wood and is controlling Water.

* Each year, all numbers are moving inside the square following the 9 Star path. This year is a year 9 (2+0+1+8= 11) (1+1+2) (11-2=9) so all 9 Purple Fire persons are in the house 5, which is the Tai Qi. It is a time of fluctuation and change while if you are a 6 White Metal person, this year you are in the house 2, which is a stagnant house and a great time to finalize your projects, get rid of everything that does not serve you anymore and take care of clutter in your house.

If you want to learn more about the 9 Star Qi astrology, I offer workshops and readings. If you want to know in what house you are this year and what kind of energy is at play, leave a comment below with your primary number.

Feng Shui and new year resolutions

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Traditionally a new year is a time of renewal and reflexion about the past year. It brings forth a new energy, a desire to change and to let go of what is not serving us anymore. Everyone wants a better life, a better year and so we go setting up resolutions. January finds us resolute but often as the time passes, our fortitude fades and by February we are back to our old habits, our old self facing the same challenges.

HOW FENG SHUI CAN HELP YOU? Here are some pitfalls to avoid and some tips to support you.

  • Follow your heart and align to your truth. Are these resolutions really what you need or are they based on conditioning? Do you really need to loose those extra pounds? To have a baby face at the age of fifty? To get more money? To find a new relationship?

Try to bring consciousness to your resolutions. Introspection, meditation, yoga can help you realign.

  • Beware of negative thoughts. You need to loose weight: ”I am a fat cow! It needs to change!”. You need money: ” I am a loser!” ”I have a stupid job!”. You need a relationship: ”I am all alone, nobody loves me” are all negative thoughts that sabotage your resolution even before you start working on it. It disempowerS you when you need to be in your power as the creator of your own life.

Replace these negative thoughts with positive affirmations and consider any problem or challenge as an opportunity to grow. Face small and big problems in the eyes WITHOUT JUDGMENT. See what you can learn from it. Do not play the victim, practice forgiveness on yourself and others.

  • Set up attainable goals. Do not start a drastic diet or anything that you will not be able to sustain in the long run. One little step at a time will get you a long way.

You can make a list of two or three things to accomplish a week and ACT ON IT. Journaling, wish boards can support you in your endeavor.

  • Live in the present moment. Do not dwell on the past or project a fantasy life into the future. You can only act in the present tense, your power and all opportunities are in the here and now.
  • Sweep away the old year. Get rid of the old stale energy by cleaning your place thoroughly, make it shine. You can also use sage for purification.
  • Move things around and out. You want new and you are surrounded with the old. What you see is what you get. What you project into the world, the world will give it back to you, so change your environment! Your best move will be to hire a professional Feng Shui consultant.

You can always move things around, play with your furniture (beware of always be in the commanding position, which means that you can see the door); get rid of clutter and old clothe in your closets (for example the ones you wore when you were thinner). Give things away. If you want a new relationship, get rid of every object that remind you of old ones. In Feng Shui, we recommend to move 27 objects that have not been moved in the past year to support transformation and completion. And move yourself: exercise, dance to your favored music, play with your animal and your kids. The idea is to move your qi (vital energy), if you do not move your qi, nothing can change.

  • Surround yourself with positive energy and beauty. Your environment can deplete you of your vital energy but people can also drain you. Surround yourself with people who support you, do not call this friend who always reminds you that you are a loser. Bring flowers and plants into your home, listen to peaceful music, use aromatherapy.
  • Remember that life is a journey. Be patient, nothing change overnight and in your journey, you have the right to be where you are. Always be gentle on yourself. Life is a cycle and sometimes is not the time for change, which does not mean you do not have to work on it by getting ready and organize. Look for my next post about Feng Shui and astrology for tips about where you are in your journey.
