Wishing you all a safe, fun, loving and warm Thanksgiving. Many of us are very blessed not being confronted with great conflict in this moment. Being mindful of that, our prayers are with the many tribes who have gathered to protect the Standing Rock Indian reservation in North Dakota.

I think it's safe to say, no matter who you voted for, many feel like Chris Farly from this movie clip in 'Tommy Boy.' The stress levels have been off the charts leading to the election and now we brace for the uncertainties of whats to follow.
 
1. It will be in your best interest to reduce how much mass media programing and social media posts on Facebook, Twitter, etc, you consume. It's a passive way to fuel extra stress, anxiety and even depression. Read this article from The Huffington Post to learn more. It's good to be informed, yet you need to also take a … (10 comments)

feng shui manhattan: Is Having A Lot of Artwork Hang On My Wall Considered Clutter? - 10/28/16 05:31 AM
Question: I am in the process of hanging up artwork and photographs in my new home. I love them all and envision filling one entire wall with all of them or would that be considered clutter? 
 
A big part of Feng Shui encourages clientele to express themselves. There are always core Feng Shui guidelines, yet as you become comfortable with understanding how the principles work, you can bend and shape them to your needs. 
 
A few Feng Shui Tips to Consider While Configuring the Composition of Your Wall Art: 
What is the subject matter? Do they bring a smile to your heart? Do they trigger happy memories? Or are you just putting them … (6 comments)

feng shui manhattan: Is it 'Good' Feng Shui to Keep Objects Under My Bed? - 10/21/16 10:43 AM
Question: I have a one bedroom apartment in Sherman Oaks, CA. I read in an a Feng Shui article that its not good to store items under the bed. Since space is limited, is there a Feng Shui cure that could still allow me to keep things under my bed and not negatively impact my energy? 
 
You always have options when implementing Feng Shui into your home and lifestyle.  You just need to be creative in how you perceive and utilize your space. While at the same time, understand the reasoning behind the Feng Shui suggestion of 'avoid keeping objects under your bed.'
To put things simple, energy rises, expands and contracts. This … (32 comments)

feng shui manhattan: Is Having Plants In Your Bedroom 'Bad' Feng Shui? - 10/19/16 03:35 AM
 
Question: I am in the process of Feng Shui-ing my NYC apartment and I read putting plants in the bedroom is bad. Then In a video, I hear plants are good Feng Shui. What would you suggest? 
 
The answer to this is, yes and no. How so? Looking to the scientific facts about plants, in the evening time most plants give off carbon dioxide. That is not ideal when we are sleeping. Being sure your bedroom is set up for optimal rejuvenation and healing is essential. 
 
The exception for plant lovers out there is, if you have a … (5 comments)

I am currently in California, providing Feng Shui consultations for clientele in the region. During the Columbus Day weekend, I made a stop over in Sedona, Arizona. The last time I visited this part of the country was back in 2013.
Sedona Red Rocks is one one of my favorite places on Earth. Besides being engulfed in the amazing energy field, with each visit it offers an opportunity to give thanks to the origins of how this company came to be.
In 1996, the birth of an idea called, 'Feng Shui Long Island' was created by Carole Provenzale during a visit to the Red Rocks in Sedona, AZ. In 1997, that … (2 comments)

feng shui manhattan: Take Time To Honor Yourself - 10/08/16 03:18 AM
How many of us take a moment or even a day or so just to honor ourselves? This is a lesson I am in the process of learning. Since taking over my mother's company, "Feng Shui Long Island, Inc,' full time in 2010, it's been non-stop with setting up meetings for new projects, PR work, marketing, providing workshops, classes, and private consultations, while also writing a book on Feng Shui. 
My lesson within this past month has been about slowing down and getting into a rhythm that does not overwhelm myself. I have begun to pace my work days with a more structured schedule for certian activies … (9 comments)

feng shui manhattan: Great Feng Shui in Andy Cohen's Studio of "Watch What Happens Live" - 10/02/16 03:30 AM
On September 20th, 2016 I was invited to be the Feng Shui Consultant on Bravo TV's, "Watch What Happens Live." One of the first questions Andy Cohen (host of "Watch What Happens Live") asked me during the live recording was, "How is the Feng Shui in the studio?" 
With out any hesitation I responded, "I love it!"
From the moment I stepped into the studio my eyes widened and my heart sang with delight because the space was so intimate, welcoming, and cozy. The studio's aura was filled with vibrant glows of energy. A lot of love and care went into the arrangement of key items.
 
Some Quick Observations:

feng shui manhattan: What Qualifies A Feng Shui Consultant To Be "Real" ? - 08/09/16 01:20 PM
 
When investigating what qualifies a person to be a "real-authentic" feng shui consultant, its suggested to consider thier place of birth, whom they studied with and paying mind to their personal character, values, morals and choice in life style practice.
 
Ask yourself: Are they knowledgeable and informative? Did they explain everything clearly and precisely? Are they professional? Are they reliable and respectful? Do they choose to advance their own studies and share that knowledge with their clientele and students? Do they practice what they teach? (very important). 
 
At the end of the day, when the client feels great, inspired, more confident, aware and their life is changing for the better, that is what we … (5 comments)

feng shui manhattan: The 8th Month Is Full Of Abundance - 08/04/16 12:30 AM
The number 8 in Feng Shui and really universally is a powerful number because its recognized for its strong qualities in manifesting double the abundance and infinite possibilities. 
So this means, collectively and individually we need to be even more mindful of our thoughts and actions during the month of August. How could we keep them positive? Take an inventory of your daily choices and thoughts.
Is what you choose to watch on TV creating more stress? If so, change the program.
Is your selection of food making you feel tired? If so, eat cleaner (more fruits, veggies, leaner meats). 
How about … (5 comments)

This is an oldie, yet goodie when it comes to marketing. I decided to update our T-shirt design by adding the tag line with the company name on the front. On the back, you have the website and phone number displayed, along with the company name and tag line repeated.  
This is a great way to help get any business name get into the public eye while offering a fun and creative outlet.

feng shui manhattan: The Success Of Social Media For Our Business - 07/12/16 12:49 AM
My first introduction to social media marketing began with my mother, Carole Provenzale. I believe it was 2006, ActiveRain.com made it's presence on the web and blogging became a new leading tool for business owners to help "get their name out there." 
I remember mom spending hours writing, commenting and simply connecting. I never really understood the value until I began to blog and experience it for myself. 
 
Bottom line...
By becoming plugged in to the social media world of blogging, it helped me understand how to utilize Facebook, Twitter, LinkendIn, Instagram, Yelp, YouTube, Podcast and so many other various social outlets more efficiently. 
 
It increased our brand recognition and following locally, nationally and globally. 
We have been … (6 comments)
