feng shui manhattan: Is Having Different Flooring in Every Room of the House 'Bad' Feng Shui? - 06/24/17 08:57 AM
From a Feng Shui perspective, the flooring represents one of the main foundations of your home. Choosing a floor design that is continuous through out your home is a common suggestion as this represents strong supportive energy [chi’]. When each room has different flooring, the energetic foundation could become weakened. 
The exception to this is if you choose to vary the floor design within the kitchen and bathroom. This is usually due to the function of the space. Let that be flooring which can stand possible spills in the kitchen and steam from the bathroom.

feng shui manhattan: Feng Shui Bagua Map Basics for Your Home - 06/21/17 07:29 AM
The Feng Shui Bagua map (also called ba-gua or pakua) is one of the main tools utilized in Feng Shui to analyze the energy of any given space. For this particular post, I am focusing on the BTB [Black Hat] bagua map of Feng Shui.  
Translated from Chinese, bagua literally means "8 areas.” You could perceive the bagua map as an energy map or life station map, that is superimposed over an entire floor plan, single room or yard to show where the eight corresponding energy meridians are located. 
 
What are the eight Ba-gua Map life sections?

feng shui manhattan: 5 Ba-gua Map Life Sections Not to Be Ignored When Feng Shui-ing Your Home - 06/20/17 09:10 AM
Feng Shui is estimated to be around 5,000 years old. It’s a lifestyle practice that provides environmental healing for the body, mind and spirit by harmonizing your home and office. The Ba-gua map is one of many tools utilized to help identify strengths and weaknesses within those given spaces.

feng shui manhattan: Feng Shui Cave-Dwellers: Is This How Feng Shui Began? - 06/16/17 11:22 AM
As I am conducting research for my Feng Shui book, I have been coming across some really interesting Feng Shui tidbits. In this case I went back to the most basic question, Where did Feng Shui first originate from?  
 
It's important to note, exact historical records for when Chinese Feng Shui was officially established is still a bit murky. Based on research published in 2006 by Hong-Key Yoon, an associate professor at the University of Auckland in New Zealand, he theorized the first Geomancers were cave-dwellers in the Loess Plateau of China’s north in search of ideal cave sites to call … (4 comments)

feng shui manhattan: Feng Shui and Design Psychology - 06/06/17 04:47 PM
As I was conducting research for my Feng Shui book I came across various articles on 'Design Psychology,' a UCLA Architecture/Interior Design program. In short, Design Psychology conducts interviews to understand the environmental history (clients' mental and emotional connection) of that given space. Based on the clients' responses the Design Physiologist chooses certain colors, lighting, textures and arrangement of the space to assist in balancing the emotions and well-being of those occupants. 
 
Sound familiar? Feng Shui is the same (environmental healing for the body, mind and spirit), using the 5 elements theory (fire, earth, metal, water and wood) which make up human physical and emotional … (3 comments)

feng shui manhattan: I Need to Cut Down Healthy Trees in my Yard, Is that Bad Feng Shui? - 04/30/17 04:23 PM
I recently met with my Feng Shui client from Massachusetts. I have been working with her family for three years and for this particular visit she was interested in landscape re-design with feng shui. Long story short, my client told me they were in process of removing 10 healthy trees. When I heard that, my heart sunk.

feng shui manhattan: Respecting the Environment is Respecting Yourself: The War on Climate Change - 03/28/17 05:44 AM
The new White House administration is making a strong hold to curb the Climate Action Plan launched in 2013. There is clear scientific and medical data that defines negative impacts to the human body and mind when living in an unhealthy environment. I was curious to see what else I could learn in regard to the affects of pollution and in particular coal mining since that is the key concept being discussed. 
The possible positives of bringing coal mining back could help increase jobs for those in the coaling industry.
Let's say that happens. Then we need to ask is there even a high demand for coal? I turned to Bloomberg.com for that answer and … (9 comments)
