feng shui manhattan: Is it 'Good' Feng Shui to Keep Objects Under My Bed? - 10/21/16 05:43 PM
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 … (25 comments)

feng shui manhattan: Is Having Plants In Your Bedroom 'Bad' Feng Shui? - 10/19/16 10:35 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.

feng shui manhattan: Take Time To Honor Yourself - 10/08/16 10:18 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)

Some Quick Observations:

feng shui manhattan: What Qualifies A Feng Shui Consultant To Be "Real" ? - 08/09/16 08:20 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)

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.

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 07:49 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.

feng shui manhattan: Feng Shui Terminology: Mouth Of Chi - 06/07/16 12:01 PM
In order to become more familiar with Feng Shui, it's helpful to learn the terminology. This weeks term is "Mouth of Chi." This represents the actual front door that was originally designed for the intended use of entering and exiting your home, apartment or office. 
The front door is said to be where all the good energy first flows into your environment and life from a literal, energetic and metaphorical position. Be sure nothing is obstructing your view of the actual front door or blocking the walking path into your home. 

feng shui manhattan: Walking The Streets of Lower Manhattan: The Bowery - 06/03/16 07:46 AM

The historic 1.5 mile Bowery is the oldest thoroughfare on Manhattan Island. Long before Broadway became Manhattan's signature road, the lane that would become the Bowery wound to the island's upper reaches. It was a dirt trail etched by the bare feet and moccasins of the Native Americans before the Dutch arrived and situated their farms.
The Bowery's first residents were ten families of freed slaves in 1645. Then in the late 17th century when the Dutch settled Manhattan island, they named the path Bouwerij road. “Bouwerij” is an old Dutch word for "farm" and was appropriate as it connected farmlands … (3 comments)

feng shui manhattan: How Could Feng Shui Bring About Deeper Self Awareness? - 05/24/16 05:47 AM
In feng shui, we leave no stone unturned. This includes observing a person's habits and behavioral patterns to offer a deeper opportunity of self awareness. 
How could feng shui bring about deeper self awareness?
During a feng shui consultation I ask clients to share their goals and challenges, which is key. This also allows them to LISTEN to their own words of description.
As we walk though their space together, it's amazing how the home aligns with what they share (goals and especially the challenges) before any feng shui changes are made. Essentially, their home illustrates areas of their lives that are full of happiness or confusion through the display of certain artwork, colors, function … (5 comments)
