I wanted to say sorry to Mother Earth from all of us for treating her in such a negative manner.  I was finishing up my Feng Shui consultation in Staten Island the other day and decided to go for a drive to check out the area.

Understanding the Ba-gua by Feng Shui LI

There are so many methods of Feng Shui and if you are not familiar, one can become very overwhelmed and confused.  The above photo is an image of the modern day Ba-gua.  This is also known as a "life station map" which indicates all major areas of your life. 
What is so interesting about the Ba-gua is that it fuses together various forms of Feng Shui.  So you have a blend of compass, Black Sect, Form and the five elements theory. This Ba-gua only indicates basic colors, elements and names of the life … (0 comments)

So you say organizing your bookcase and shelves is not necessary. If you are Feng Shuiing your home, ever detail of enhancement will make a difference.  De cluttering and organizing is one of the easiest Feng Shui principles to live by and yet, it is also the most tedious work.

This was one of many small beautiful sea shell I found after enjoying the seal hike a couple of weeks ago.  I was drawn to the simplicity of the design and blending of color that seems to just give off a tranquil feeling.

It's just fine to say "NO."
