Working Today's Energy Patterns

Japanese Gardens Oregon

This is a day to delve in and run with your mission. Fire rising allows you to take advantage and carve out your new nitche. Get to the planning board and play around with some ideas. You may want to call in a few close friends to assist you in the process. You'll do much better with a group approach rather than doing it alone. Make sure you spend some time with family today as well. Plan a nice dinner without interruptions.

Other Areas to be Mindful of Today:

  • Stick with the planning stage of new ventures rather than actually unveiling them. There are way too many decisions to make that require clarity. The central star is just not reliable when it comes to making sound decisions today.
  • Continue your networking process today. Hone in on those who can offer you good advice. Seek a mentor if need be.  
  • Keep your vision and goals aligned with your actions. It is too easy to be derailed today. Slow and steady is the pace to strive for.
  • Research is essential in your process today. The more you can gather right information, the greater financial results.
  • Partnership/relationships are in good alignment today. Working closely with those your trust elicits great results!
  • Pay attention to detail with any real estate dealings. Avoid signing a contract today, as the tendency is for something to go wrong.
  • In terms of exercise today, stick with a slower moving yoga class or relaxing walk through the park.
  • Include some wood and earth foods in your diet today. Citrus, greens, quinoa, beans and mushrooms are a few examples. 

Enjoy working with the energetic combinations for today!

May - The Energy of Two-Earth

May flowers 


I'm thankful for April showers, as my deck is filled with beautiful May flowers. 


This month the energy of two earth takes front and center. It's a time to stick to routine and accumulate resources for a new venture. Try not to start anything grand just yet, as the tendency liens towards struggles and conflict. New friends or relationships may arise, while old ones fade away.  The lesson here is to closely consider who you are choosing to be a part of your inner circle.

The energy of two - earth, also referred to as the trigram Kun, reaches a stage of maturity.  Perseverance and even stubbornness are qualities you can expect to encounter this month. On the flip-side, however, two-earth also elicits a gentle kind energy that helps to offset the harsher qualities. Kun is the primal mother, and as such, there is a natural tendency to take on a nurturing role this month. 

Environment:

Two-earth strives for order and balance in the surrounding environment. Therefore, make it a point this month to clear out the old to make room for the new. This will require hard work and focus, two traits that are readily available from this earth energy. 

I suggest starting from the outdoors to make your changes in the environment. Two-earth literally represents the planet earth and its' soil. You'll want to be mindful of recycling, composting and incorporating rockery, fresh mulch and soil into your landscape and gardening projects. Enroll a friend or two to assist you in the process. Two-earth loves partnering with others rather taking on the task solo. Furthermore, since two-earth is generally not an energy that initiates, it behooves you to follow its strong partnering energy.

If your indoor environment is in need of order, then alternate days working outdoors to indoors. This will keep the energy moving at a steady pace, which is so important for two-earth. Furthermore, by opening up energy in the internal environment, it will give you the motivation needed to move forward.

Relationships:

Two-earth is all about your relationships. It's a perfect month to spend time nurturing them. Go out to dinner with that special someone. Plan a day with your friends, your children or the entire family. Hit the "do not disturb" button on your phone, and keep your focus on those who mean the world to you.


Foods:

Two-earth prefers earth and fire foods such as beans, potatoes, mushrooms, chicory, endive and asparagus, to name a few. Try to incorporate these foods into your menu this month to absorb earth and fire energy; two elements that work side-by-side.  

Other Areas of Concern:

When two-earth is the highlight trigram for the month, the remaining trigrams move to different positions. On a very basic level, we are able to see how other aspects of our life take on this moving energy. Here are some things to consider:

  • When it comes to family this month, you'll want to be clear with your goals. Bring some clarity to your direction, especially for the upcoming summer months.
  • Long-term planning for finances is especially important this month. Partner up with your financial planner to review your portfolio. 
  • Heed advice from mentor when it comes to your personal goals this month. You'll need to make sound decisions, so make sure you take advantage of your meditation time this month.
  • Resources are readily available to you this month. It does require the assistance of a partner, or someone you trust. 
  • Spend time with creative projects or simply reading at your leisure this month.
  • Hold off on trying to start something new, as you may hit a brick wall in trying to get it started. Instead, do your research and communicate effectively what you are trying to do.
  • Be mindful on the job of undermining female energy this month. Hold off on sharing any ideas with others, especially with your co-workers.



Feeling Grounded:

Earth is the most grounding of all the elements. To capitalize on this quality, take time this month for quiet meditation. The northeast sector is the best energy to assist with your meditation practice. Set up an area where you will not be disturbed and plan to remain quiet for at least 20 minutes. This will have a tremendous impact on how you navigate your day and week. A good chant to capture the root base chakra, which is associated with the element of earth, is LAM (pronounced LUM). You can repeat this sound throughout your meditation to awaken the root. As a result, you will feel more grounded, safe, secure and connected to others. You'll also alleviate the fear of scarcity.

Yoga Poses:

Any standing yoga pose bodes well to engage the pranic roots through your feet. When we root down through our feet the ability to rise upwards significantly increases. The root-to-rise effect balances our earthly desires with our heavenly aspirations. There is a natural balance that occurs between the yin side (ida - receptive), and yang side (pingala - active). Here are a few poses to consider this month:


Happy Two-Earth Month...

Tips for Your Feng Shui Thursdays!




Let's talk about natural accents. It's amazing how you can find harmony in nature's own palette. "Nature's first green is gold, " wrote the American poet Robert Frost in his 1923 ode to the fleeting natural world. Gold is the element of metal, and a perfect accent for the metal portents of west and northwest, or the water portent of north. Making subtle adjustments to your décor is an excellent way to celebrate the simplicity and oneness with the outdoors. Here are some examples of how you can invite mother nature inside.


  • Seashells or starfish placed in a decorative glass bowl and placed in the north portent is a lovely way to accent the element of water. It's always important to be mindful of where you are positioning actual water, so this is a great way to infuse the element virtually. 
  • Macramé wall art unframed or framed. This is a fabulous way to infuse texture into your décor. 
  • Bleached wood accent table. The lighter finish puts the focus on subtler natural details like the wood's grain and helps to keep key pieces together harmoniously.
  • Hand woven natural fiber area rug. Working with natural fibers improves air quality.
  • Accent metal tray for coffee table is a great focal point while activating the qualities of clarity and focus.
  • Florals rich in color will naturally increase the energy (chi) within the environment. 
Use one or two statement objects to attract the eye in a muted setting. Perhaps hammered bowl or vase that work together to refract light and cast a golden hue into polished surfaces like marble and glass. If you have an open space, add touchable textures such as a decorative throw or woven wall art.
When you work with the accents of nature in décor, you invite harmony into your life. From the words of John Muir; "Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees."

Refreshing Day of Energy!


I love a refreshing energy day. It's a day that supports positive endeavors that promotes abundant return. It's important to be in alignment with your goals and visions on a refreshing energy day to gain the full benefits.

Metal is the active element for the morning hours. Therefore, it is best to approach your tasks with a well thought out plan. Create a check-list of all the things you need to accomplish today. Use your intuition in the process. If you are delegating tasks, make certain your instructions are clear and concise. In addition, make certain you are mindful of your communication tactics.

The afternoon hours move into the energy of the ox. Therefore, be prepared to roll up your sleeves and dig into some real work. There is a tendency to shoulder the plough; however, it may be more productive to let others assist you. You'll be determined however to take on the full load, but don't become annoyed if you think others are not doing their share.

Additional Energy Patterns:

It behooves to you take note of the following areas to gain the most out of your day.

  • Reach out to those who have assisted you in the past when it comes to navigating new opportunities. They may have a new business venture or approach to what you are presently doing. It is worth the reconnection.
  • Whatever you have been working on needs clarity. Revisit your intention and goals and see if you can refine your approach.
  • Decide where you can infuse a creative aspect to your current project or business model. Infuse the element of "outside the box" thinking. It will pay off ten-fold and people will love it!
Overall, the energy is fantastic today. Rich resources are available to all. Take advantage of it and move through your work and projects with enthusiasm and gusto!

Farm to Table Garden

Fun Farm to Table Garden




This is the cutest farm to table local garden. Today, while I was doing some errands, I stumbled onto this cute garden. It has great feng shui! 

The owner of the restaurant uses all organic ingredients grown in this charming garden.  Without realizing it, this restaurant owner incorporated  feng shui principles. Let's take a look.

Varying Heights:

I always suggest my clients incorporate varying heights in their landscape and garden designs. This gives the eye room to roam. Furthermore, it is fantastic to encourage energy to flow and keep the garden fresh.

Mixed Materials:

This is another great feature to this garden and definitely a feng shui plus. If your contemplating designing a garden or landscape area on your property, choose multiple materials to include in the design. There is a mixture of metal  and wooden containers to hold plants and vegetables. Different materials give off varied vibrations and add to the garden experience.

Seating:

There are several areas in this relatively small garden for people to sit and enjoy nature. This is fabulous as it allows the body to rest while activating the sensory system, including scent, sight, sound and of course taste with a delicious farm to table meal.

Barriers:

There are several places in the garden with natural landscape barriers that successfully contain this garden oasis from a busy roadway and parking lot. The evergreen archway is a wonderful way to attract people to come and enjoy the garden views. 

Enjoy!

FeelingTangled up?

Photo by Mary Jane Kasliner

I was walking at my favorite park the other day and was drawn to this particular tree and decided to take a photograph of it. My first impression was how dynamic and intricate the vines wrapped around the tree branches. From a feng shui perspective, I thought how these flowing vines represented the element of water. It occurred to me how nature itself is introspective. It was as if this tree was trying to tell those who pass by to spend time to move inward and discover your authenticity.

Lap three around the lake, I found myself having an internal discussion about how the elements of water and wood were meeting in this tree to support creative expression. In other words, this tree decided to take on a very creative and authentic appearance by its growth pattern. These are discussions that are very familiar to me as a feng shui teacher. Since 2005, I have trained many students in the practice and theories of feng shui. One of my favorite classes in my curriculum is the five elements. I explore all aspects of these elements including their nuclear strand. Okay, I'm a bit of a type "A" when it comes to my work. 

In 2011, my husband and I took a trip to the Pacific Northwest to celebrate my 50th birthday. It was on that trip I really moved into the workings behind the wisdom of elements in nature. This came to me during meditations while hiking through Olympic National Park. As a result of my meditations, I decided to write my third book, Mother Nature and Bridge to Conscious Living.  It never seizes to amaze me how nature speaks to us if we are willing to take the time to listen. 

Getting back to my tree photo that I took during my walk through the park; my intention was to post it immediately on my Instagram page. However, something inside me said to wait. After returning from visiting a client this morning, I decided it would be a good idea to post my tree photo with a short blog. When I uploaded the image from my phone to my blogger post, my impression of the image changed. It looked as though everything was all tangled in the tree. Then it hit me, most of the time we let our busy schedules get in the way of seeing things for what they truly are. It was clear to me that while I was in the park, my senses were heightened to the elements of nature. I really became present in that moment to absorb the quality and vibration of the outdoor environment. There were no distractions, and that is when the tree pulled me into its energy field. This is when my impression of this tree was one of creative expression. The moral of my tree story is to take time everyday and just be in the moment. There is so much more you can see and understand as a result.

Time for the Outdoors!


Finally, the weather here on the east coast is warming up; and when that happens, we  look to spend more time outdoors. Just like the indoor environment, the outdoors need attention and design to navigate chi to flow freely. Here is the short list to get you started with your own natural environment, the area around your home.

Use Your Intuition:

A certain amount of intuition is always good to help you identify problem areas around your property. For example, an area that always seems to be stagnate would bode well by infusing some yang chi such has a bird bath, or bird feeder. The activity created by life force will help to restore balance in this overly yin segment of the property.

You might want to consider how you prefer to navigate your property in terms of directions. It is very helpful to simply extend the directional points from your floor plans right out to your property to give you ideas of landscape choices. For example, it might be a good idea to create a butterfly garden in the southern portion of the yard. This is a wonderful fire energy to assist with the natural element of this direction.

Simple Garden Remedies:

There are many dynamics that can cause energy to move too quickly or not move at all. For example, chi may be extremely sluggish in any area that is too dark, so this can be remedied by introducing more light with the use of landscape lighting or clearing and cutting back overgrown vegetation.

Albeit nature provides beautiful sounds, areas that are stagnate in your yard can be reactivated with infused sounds from chimes or man-made water feature. This is a fabulous way to generate activity and wildlife. On the flip side of things, sometimes chi is overactive and therefore requires stillness. Placing a large heavy object such as a statue, or garden urn can work especially well and look fantastic.

When chi tends to linger in certain areas of your yard, you can encourage it by using straight paths. You can also use arches and obelisks, or by planting straight stemmed plants. Incorporating functional objects such as a sundial, or barbecue is also a great way to revive sleepy or stagnating energy.

Boundaries:

Having boundaries in your garden is very important as it gives you a way to control the energy that reaches your house. Essentially, there are two basic ways to vary the amount of energy that your boundary lets through. You can adapt the height of it via a tall fence, wall or hedge. If you want to encourage more chi from a particular direction, you can do it by lowering the boundary. For example, let's say you want to encourage chi to enter your wealth area, you might consider a low boundary with a gazing ball or bird house to pep up your finances.

You can also alter the density of your boundary. More chi flows through an open trellis verses a solid wall. If you have an open trellis and you want to slow down the movement of chi, then plant close-growing climbers up it, such as ivy or Virginia creeper.

Paths:

This is one of the most important features of almost any garden. Keep in mind straight paths encourage energy to flow down them, and to flow fast. This bodes well if you are trying to navigate chi to an overly yin (stagnate) area. If the chi is already flowing well, your paths should curve gently.

When creating pathways, mix up the materials you use. For example, in a shady area, a light colored path such as gravel will create a contrast and bring light to the area. Use darker materials for those areas that are too bright and need toning down.

Beds and Borders:

Flowerbeds can be an extremely attractive feature in any garden. Generally speaking, the edges of beds and borders should follow gentle curves rather than straight lines. Wide flowerbeds also bode better than narrow ones, with the ideal width to be between 3 and 6 feet. This of course will depend upon the proportions of your yard.

When constructing beds, consider varying heights of vegetation, as the change in height encourages chi to flow from higher to lower parts. If space permits, island beds are wonderful. They give you the opportunity to infuse lots of different materials, pathways and vegetation.

Have fun this spring restoring your yard and garden. Enjoy the essence of nature and live consciously!

How to Best Work With The Energy For Today!



The element of fire is strong today as it is found in its yang form in the daily Bazi stem position, and yin form in the hidden stem of the Dog branch. With that being said, it behooves you to reconnect with your goals and vision. Make sure you are clear with your direction. Are there any changes or adjustments you need to make? If so, today is a good day to make those revisions. 

Spending some time outdoors today also bodes well for fire energy. Think about taking your break with a brisk walk through the neighborhood or local park. Exercise is a must with strong fire, as flow of chi within the body via the circulatory system and meridians naturally aligns to this element.

Fire over earth provides a free flowing quality of energy today. Therefore, you may find things just move according to plans. Stick with a check-list and move through it with grace. The combination between the stem and branch in the day pillar is excellent when it comes to meeting new people and engaging in public relations. You may find lots of ideas flowing in and out of your mind today. This is good, but stick to your goals making those adjustments where needed.

Other Areas of Focus:

  • Younger male influence is beneficial when it comes to resources and financial gains. This is especially so when it comes to real estate. Heed the advice for positive outcome.
  • Research, including reading and writing for future aspirations and opportunities. This comes directly from networking or mentor advice. It's worth taking the time to listen and then move to your own research for best results.
  • Patriarch or mentor has beneficial perspective for eldest son when it comes to career or long-term goals approach. 
*The energy is very positive in the center of the structure today and therefore can grace all occupants. If you would like to spread that good chi, activate it with moving fire such as an essential oil diffuser.

Wood is Strong in the Season of Spring!



Spring is on the rise with the support of strong wood. Coming out of the watery energy of winter, there is plenty of action within the earth for wood to rise as new shoots. So, what can you do to enhance your environment? Here are a few ideas to catapult healthy wood.

Landscape:

The most recognizable wood energy are plants, bushes, trees and herbs. Take a walk around your property and note where vegetation looks sparse. Clean out any decay and prepare the soil for new plantings. Plant taller vegetation to the rear and sides of the home, with the tallest to the rear  followed by the right side of the property, then the left when viewed from the street. If you are standing at your front door looking out to the roadway, then the higher vegetation is on the left and lower to the right. It is simply perspective of where you are standing, as they are the same sides.

Make sure this vegetation can withstand the rigors of weather and seasons. In other words, just because the season changes from cold to hot or hot to cold, the plant choice should be able to tolerate the fluctuations in temperature. By choosing sturdy vegetation you avoid an otherwise barren look during the colder months.

Other Landscaping Tips:

There are a number of feng shui landscaping design formulas to follow that I point out in many of my feng shui programs, but here are a few simple tips to keep in mind:

  • Incorporate curves whenever possible
  • Mix up the elements such as gravel, sand, soil, wood chips, etc.
  • Create movement in the southeast with bird feeder 
  • Combine a mixture of heights with seasonal plants against year-round vegetation
  • Create an herb garden in the southeast or east section of the yard
  • Include a water feature in the front
  • Use vegetation as a natural barrier whenever possible 
  • Use landscape lighting (solar is a nice choice)

Indoor Wood Tips:

Rooms that fall within the east and southeast portents of your home are directly associated with the element of wood. It's important to utilize this element, along with the parent element of water, and the child element of fire, as accents in these rooms. Here are a few examples of how to design wood rooms. 

  • Choose water or wood colors ( blues or greens). However, use very little water if this room presents as a bedroom or kitchen.
  • Choose real wood flooring and furnishings
  • Incorporate real flowing water (unless if a kitchen or bedroom)
  • Choose stripe or floral patterns
  • Columnar shapes in general bode well
  • Free flowing fabrics as accents
  • Plenty of live plants (only one if in a bedroom)
  • Herbs, especially in the kitchen
  • Candles in moderation


Clearing * Cleaning:

Okay, so who remembers growing up and mom saying; "It's time for spring cleaning!" My mom was big on pulling down all the curtains, washing the windows, cleaning the floors and the list goes on. I remember how good it felt right after all the cleaning and organizing was complete. It literally felt like a breath of fresh air. Mom was definitely onto something with this tradition that at the age of 87, she still abides by. Sure, it takes her much longer to get the job done, but the end result is still the same. It's a fresh start to welcome in the new energy that unfolds from the stagnation of winter.

Before diving into rearranging your wood rooms (Southeast and East) locations, think about cleaning, organizing and clearing the home. This sets the foundation to welcome in the shift from yin (passive), to yang (active), springtime energy. Once all the cleaning is complete, it's a good idea to seal it with a simple space clearing process. That could include burning sage or other herbs, to infusing your favorite essential oils throughout your home. Wrap it up with a few intentions, and enjoy the new sanctuary you created!

Best Way to Handle the Energy for Today!

Caves in Canada


There is an interesting combination of energy today that has a tendency to close down and result in stagnation. We refer to this type of day as  "closed energy." What does that mean exactly? It simply suggests it is best not to engage in any major decisions or activities, as you may encounter many challenges. It is far more effective to hunker down and sort through work that is already in progress. 

In terms of the Bazi, the day pillar holds earth residing over wood. This combination can lead to tension throughout the day, as these two elements fight against one another. There are two ways to disarm the tension between the heavenly stem and earthly branch. You can decide to be more assertive when interacting with those around you, but be clear with your intentions and/or goals. Just be mindful however, not to delve in to major undertakings, as the overall energy is "closed" for today. The second approach is more subtle. Keep to yourself and ponder your ideas by communicating them in a yin way; meaning write them down and keep them close to the vest.

The combination of the stem and branch elicits an overall practical, serious and hardworking manner. This is essentially how you should carry out your day being mindful of the aforementioned qualities. From another energy perspective, there are a few areas to be aware of. They are as follows:

  • If you own real estate, and especially if you are a landlord, the energy is very beneficial for rent increase. If you are seeking real estate, the combination bodes best for the seller and not the buyer. Remember, it is a closed energy day, so don't look to sign anything today. If you are selling property, stick to your original price. Do not go lower. Do not sign formal papers today, but lock the price.
  • In terms of close partnership, whether personal or business, raise the discussion of long-term path. It will require some research to help establish the overall plan.
  • Make an effort to accomplish one or two items on your list of "long-term" goals that relate to your career today. Discuss options with partner.
Areas Where Challenges Could Arise Today:

  • Your meditation practice. Inner dialogue could get disruptive. 
  • Possible tension/fighting with youngest son
  • Eldest son and mother tension around finances
  • Chest discomfort for patriarch
  • Overall tension for everyone
Tip of the day:

Tolerance is the key to a healthy relationship and a good life.

Open Day for Energy!

Open Day for Energy!


Today is considered an opening day for energy. This bodes well for activities that involve opening yourself to receive. It's a day to set new intentions and plant the seeds for the infinite possibilities that await you. There is a new moon also in the mix, so it is especially important to visualize whatever it is you want to manifest. 

It's important to get grounded with your thoughts and metal processes today to be most effective.  There is a tendency for people to want to do things for themselves rather than in a group effort. In addition, following a routine may be challenging, but worth the effort. 

There is a conflict between the elements in the day pillar (earth to wood), for today. This can bring about unwanted tension. You can take two approaches to be most effective. Decide if your work/goals for today need fine tuning. This could mean changing things up and becoming more visible to the public. Your second option can take a more behind the scenes approach by constructively mapping out your day and taking the time to go "inward" to decide what will take you through the long haul most effectively. This will require a mindful process including the ability to communicate effectively.

Other areas of focus for today:

  • Make a career move today as financial resources are amazing. Power up the north sector with moving water, strong wood and fire components.
  • Tap into your wisdom body through your daily meditation practice. Be aware that information may come your way about a powerful mentor. This can lead to future leadership position and new opportunities for growth. Strong earth element to the northeast to really capture this energy combination!
  • Flow, flow and more flow of energy to feed possible new business venture. Rely on family or elder support for guidance. Have a long-term plan in place for best outcome.
  • Windfalls can be likely overall today but the energy is a little unstable. Add strong fire element to the center of the structure to ease the otherwise overactive energy.
Today's Tip: 

Remind yourself to let go of false pride.

Strong Triad of Financial Energy Today!



The energy line up for today has a terrific sequence of trigrams that runs across the line of networking, stability and realized income. Here's my recommendations:

  • Do your research, which may include some study-time, to determine who can assists you the most to advance your goals. This energy combination is flowing in the northwest portent that deals with leadership, mentoring guidance, changing perspective of how you see things, and opportunities that are available. Place strong metal element in the northwest today to give assistance to the portent that is doing a great deal of work to fuel this combination.
  • Be secure and committed to you vision. If it is unclear, make it clear! Add more fire to the center of your home or office to illuminate your goals. Write an affirmation or two for guidance.
  • Resources are an amazing aspect to the triad of financial stars that take the root from heaven to earth today. This has a potential to change your financial position. Place strong fire, moving water and money in the southeast today. Keep one finger on the pulse for real estate connections. 
The wood stem is yin today, so there is flexibility when it comes to your ideas and making a move on them. The pig branch sits beneath fueling the source of your ideas and constitution. It's a good idea to remain focused and organized so your mind doesn't get ahead of you today. Only take on what you realistically can.

Have a great and successful day!

What You Need to Know About the Energy for Today!

Earth over earth can create some instability today. Tree roots can be more vulnerable, so be especially mindful if you are in an area with high winds and rain. Excessive earth can also trigger emotions of anxiety. You may find it more difficult to digest information and distribute it effectively. What will be especially helpful is to map out your thoughts, and then review them before sharing with others. 

You may also find people to be a bit more dictatorial today, a "holier than thou," type of attitude. If you ride the wave, and let them prattle away, you'll end up taking the lead. It requires patience, but it will work.

Other Areas of Focus Today:

  • Stick close to home and your roots when it comes to making career decisions. Clarity with goals is a plus. It may require some reading and research to make your mark.
  • Partnerships are strong today, and especially those who are closest to you. Take advantage of spending time with your significant other today. If you have a business partner, it is wise to review strategy for this month.
  • Strong financial combination in career sector today. It is a good day to ask for a raise or make adjustment to your 401K. Communication is important to make your point.
  • Spend some time in the north sector today to take advantage of good energy that is present there.
