Daily Energy Forecast!



We just celebrated the summer solstice yesterday, the longest day of the year with the element of fire peaking. This is the perfect time to hone your skills. We are all blessed with unique skills and talents but the idea is to develop and serve others using them. This is the way!

The southern portent directly influences how we serve others through our skills, and as we do so, the accolades follow. Today, the energy is bright in the south portent. It is a fabulous combination between leading, motivating and networking with others that produces long terms results. It does require time to meditate and contemplate what your next move on your path should be. Take time today to map out those people who would be beneficial for your growth. Then, place strong earth in the south portent along with bright lighting and movement.

To assist in attracting others to help you along, place the element of wood and fire in the southwest. It's important to support good relationships in order for things to unfold properly.


It's never too late to set intentions for this time of year with a fire burning ceremony. Enjoy my Summer Solstice Despacho fire burning ceremony by clicking here.



Namaste,

Crystals in Your Home


Crystals placed around your home will absorb negativity and promote a happy, harmonious atmosphere. Choose crystals that you are attracted to. Before arranging them in the home, place them outside in a bowl of water for 24 hours to cleanse and re-energize them. The fascination of crystals comes from their earth born beauty.  Here are a few common types of crystals you can enjoy in and around your home:

  • Clear Quartz, can lift us to a lighter, more joyful state.
  • Aventurine, a beautiful green stone, clears turbulent thoughts and purifies the emotions.
  • Rose Quartz, associated with love, gently releases emotional blockages.
  • Yellow Calcite, brings inner strength and peace.
Crystals are a perfect way to bring sacred geometry into your living environment as well. This is a powerful way to imbue your space with divine harmony. Enjoy the process of choosing crystals and aligning them to areas of your home that feel stagnant. You'll be amazed how different your living or working space will feel!

June 2017 Feng Shui & Yoga Forecast

June 2017 Feng Shui & Yoga Forecast.



Welcome to BSA - The Conscious Alignment of Energy
BSA is busy updating its newsletter and website for the start of this summer season! We hope you like what you see and enjoy what you read.

June is the month of the Yang Fire Horse, the summer solstice, and the literary star (4 Xun). The element of fire is at its peak, so get ready to fill your days with action, adventure, transformation and illumination.



The Fire Horse:
Fire represents a host of things from the color red, hot weather, the sense of touch, the heart, eyes, small intestines, our soul's path, accolades and our reputation. It is an element that sparks all life and brings clarity to any situation. The active side of fire is spontaneous and hard to control while the passive side is easily directed to serve our needs.

The fire element has a natural capacity to lead; a decisive and confident energy. Therefore, this month there is a natural capacity to motivate people and bring ideas to fruition. There is a tendency however to be aggressive and dominate others with your own ideas and creativity. There is also a greater tendency to take risks and move to pioneer new trails.  It's important to tighten the reins on your emotions as forceful ambitions can make you inconsiderate and impatient. Curb impulsiveness for your own good and realize that diplomacy goes a long way.

The fire stem meets the horse for a rather flamboyant and adventurous nature. Change is welcomed through sheer willpower. Distractions can easily hold you back from accomplishing all you would like so make sure you stick to your "to do" list for best outcome. Competition is likely but that will not deter you from your path. Just know the horse can be rather unpredictable. With that being said, expect crazy things to unfold in relationships and on the job. Remain agile and passionate in your approach to business dealings. Exercise is important this month so get out there and embrace the outdoors. The more strenuous the activity the better. This goes for mental activity as well. You may find people are quick to make decisions and very flexible and open- minded.

*What to Learn from the Horse:


  • Be quick and come to the point when interacting in business
  • Think in terms of new ideas and approaches
  • Pursue lofty goals
  • And most of all...Take some time to smell the roses!


The 4 Literary Star:

This month the focus is on literature, writing, the arts and theater. This is a creative flowing type of energy, when combined with the Horse month, can really fuel great ideas that spread easily. From a feng shui perspective, this is the trigram of Xun; the eldest female, the element of wood and the wind in nature. Wood is expansive, but in this yin polarity takes on a softer and more gentle approach. In other words, it is the slow growth that begins to bloom into full expression. It represents the thighs and pelvic region of the body, so these areas can be more vulnerable to injury this month. This trigram also represents fortunate blessings and wealth. Therefore, a greater chance exists for financial return for your creations.

Areas of Concern:

East:
Place a metal element here on June 6th and remove by July 7th to ease the negative star residing here for the month. This star can cause family tension and abdominal illness for male.


Northwest: Metal sound vibration is helpful to break up this negative star that can result in chaos especially for eldest male (patriarch). This can impact networking and  potential deals for financial return. You can remove the metal vibration by July 7th.


Northeast: Virtual water cure to alleviate potential theft. This star can also cause you to question yourself bringing about uncertainty. Remove cure by July 7th.

Areas to Highlight:

Southeast: Drum up new business. Add water and fire element to add movement and stability to finances. Remove cures by July 7th.


South: Run with your services and reputation to corner the market in your business. Bring clarity and vision to your goals this month by adding strong fire element here. Remove by July 7th.


Southwest:
Career focus for female this month. See the big picture. Add metal element to this sector and remove by July 7th.


West: Keep the creativity flowing and have some fun while you are at it. Add earth to this direction and remove by July 7th.


North: Fine tune your goals and vision for career longevity. Add wood here and remove  by July 7th.








Yoga This Month!

With fire at its peak this month it is natural to engage in practices that illuminate the 3rd chakra, manipura. Manipura is about tapping into our raw potential, our God-given gifts bestowed upon us entering this earthly plane. By utilizing theses gifts to serve others we walk the dharmic path - our soul's mission. Here are a few poses to include in your practice.

  • Sun Salutations, Warrior Poses 1, 2 & 3, Plank, Bow, Child's Pose and Corpse                                                                





Happy June!

Daily Energy Foreccast Plus Feng Shui Tip!


Happy Wednesday! Today the yang earth stem meets up with the fire horse branch. The earth and fire blend well for grounding movement. In other words, there is sound decision making before jumping directly into something new. The earth quality today is about functional and practical aspirations. Deductive powers and solid reliable pursuits bode best. Organization and effective planning will propel you to the next level. Reinforce the foundation of whatever you are working on before anything else as this will create lasting results.

As the earth stem moves towards the horse branch this afternoon things may move at a slower pace. You'll want to consider all sides of a question before acting. Once you weigh the pros and cons, you'll be able to assess the competition more effectively. There is a tendency to be overly capricious about little things that will make it more difficult to make up your mind. Don't over think it and go with your gut reaction.

Energy Combinations To Look Out For:

  • The energy is strong today for marketing and teaming up with others for services offered to the public. Add strong fire element to the south to take advantage of this combination.
  • Real estate transactions bode well today. Enhance the Northeast with strong fire and look closely at contracts before signing.
  • Time to revisit your resume. Determine a strategy for long term career growth and then stick with it. Add strong wood - thriving plant to the north sector today to capture this combination.

Feng Shui Tip:


Make a Pot Pourri using the leaves of dried herbs or dried flower pedals. Examples are: sage, pine, bergamot, bay, rosemary, rose geranium, lavender, lemon verbena, peppermint. Mix in an attractive bowl with ground gloves and cinnamon, with a little ground orris root added as a preservative. Stir the pot pourri occasionally to release scents. Revive it from time to time by sprinkling with a few drops of essential oil.

Scent is a powerful way to raise the energy in your environment. It activate the ancient part of our brain that is responsible for emotion and perception. It is a terrific way to enhance mood and the flow of energy in your home or office.

Improve Air Quality with Feng Shui


Improve air quality in your home with feng shui principles. According to the US Environmental Agency, the concentration of toxins can be more than 200 times greater inside buildings than outside. The prime requisite is to keep the home well ventilated by opening windows regularly. Use house plants; a feng shui favorite, as a means of filtering the air. If central heating and good insulation make the atmosphere too dry, water in unglazed terracotta vessels above or near radiators will help to redress the balance. Some additional measure you can take to make the home environment healthier, and therefore more relaxing, include:

  • Use few chemical products
  • Use herbs and essential oils to scent the air
  • Use natural materials whenever possible for furnishings and decoration
  • Ban smoking
  • Use air ionizers to boost the level of negative ions in the air - salt candles and lamps are a feng shui favorite!
Just by adding some natural elements in design, nature's essence, and improving the air flow in your home can create a more relaxing and healthy environment.
