feng shui manhattan: Great White Sharks Spotted in Provincetown Feasting on The Carcass of a Minke Whale - 08/13/17 09:05 AM
This may not be a pretty sight, yet its part of the circle of life. Two great white sharks were spotted by vacationers (including my friend and I) off the coast Provincetown, MA on August 11th, 2017. The narrator of the Whale Watch Dolphin Fleet said, "in my 31 years of doing this work, I have never seen this before." 
It's one thing to see Great Whites on TV and its a whole other surreal experience to see them only a few feet from where you are standing on the boat. Our emotions and thoughts? Intense, excitement, amazement, and respect. This is how our whale watching tour started out and then mid-way … (6 comments)

feng shui manhattan: End of an Era to New Beginnings - 08/13/17 08:05 AM
Since the early 70's in America, family sizes have shrunk and immediate family members typically contain 3-4 people these days. That was the case on my mother's side of the family (the Provenzale's). My family included mom (Carole), my brother, Grandma Rose, and Uncle Peter. 
Starting in the late 1990's to the early 2000's, the Provenzale's began to shrink. In 1997, Uncle Peter passed away. In 2010, mom was next and in 2013, Grandma Rose said her goodbyes. With each passing it was a family tradition to spread the ashes. The location of choice has always been within the surrounding area of Provincetown, MA.
This weekend, I made … (3 comments)

"Dear Laura,
I've been fascinated with the topic of Feng Shui for several years know and I have become really confused with certain things. For example, I've read in books and articles that my bathroom is considered a huge drain on my energy. Is this true?

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.

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)
