Thoughts For The New Year

The holiday season is over and it’s time to think about the new opportunities that are available to us with the coming of a new year. Here in Western New York, we always have the added challenge of the winter weather which can be so unpredictable, with the exception of the gray skies, winter snow and blustery cold.

Holiday Tips

Well, it’s hard to believe but it’s December already and the holidays are upon us. And just like that, another year is drawing to a close and a new year is on the horizon. Have you given any thought to how you want to spend your holidays? Will you be continuing with your holiday traditions or will you start new ones?

Feng Shui Sleep

Everyone is hoping to wake up feeling refreshed and renewed every day. The sad fact is however, that many wake up feeling like they don’t even want to get out of bed. Or that they’re not well rested. I have written about how Feng Shui is used to help us get a good night’s rest. This month, I’ll share some tips to set up the master bedroom so that positive energy can enter, negative energy can leave and you’re surrounded by the best energy possible to support you while you sleep. And a supportive master bedroom transfers into support for the whole household making for an overall better living environment and ultimately a better life.

The above quote is timely, considering the political climate we are currently living with.  Not only is America experiencing a nasty political division, but the rest of the world is looking on with trepidation.  Everything is “unprecedented.”  Many watch in shock, others watch and feel encouraged.  Most everyone can agree—we haven’t seen anything like this before.

What is Feng Shui and How Can It Help Me ?

When it comes to feng shui, most people have a basic notion of what it is. Or so they say. Because when I ask people to describe feng shui, they start to falter. “Well, it’s uh…, well, you know…” When we speak of feng shui, we are referring to an ancient art and science dating back over 5,000 years. It literally means “wind and water.” Interestingly, feng shui used to be referred to as Kan Yu – as above, so below, meaning that as things occur in the cosmos, so too do they occur in our lives.
