Besides providing Feng Shui Consultations, Reiki Healing sessions and more, I've been playing for local bands based out of Long Island, Brooklyn and New York City. I had the pleasure of joining forces with Dan Strauss and Zigline to perform at Shrine World Music Venue in Harlem, NY on Wednesday night (April 17th, 2024). The evening was filled with soothing eclectic experimental sounds featuring Dan Strauss as the lead vocalist on guitar, Todd Rogers on violin, Raymond Russel on bass and myself, Laura Cerrano on percussion. To watch a live recording of our performance you can click on this link, Dan Strauss and Zigline at Shrine World Music Venue in Harlem, NY. Enjoy!P.s. this is an example of living the Feng Shui lifestyle.  In this case, it was planting a seed of an idea that brought j...

Have you ever resented or hated your home? This is a topic in the Feng Shui community not often spoken about, but is extremely important to be aware of. Occupants who resent or hate their home enable huge levels of unsettling energy that have the potential to engulf the entire home if gone unchecked. The intention of this article is to bridge science, practicality and a simple Space Clearing healing ritual to realign your home and self with harmonizing frequencies of love, compassion and peace. Read the full article by visiting: How Does Resenting and Hating My Home Affect The Energy?I'm working on a second article to offer an example of this situation to provide more context.

In the practice of Feng Shui and Geopathic Stress Dowsing, there are overlapping topics of interest. In Bon Tantric Buddhism Feng Shui, we investigate ‘Predecessor History’ and in Geopathic Stress Dowsing, we refer to that as ‘Place Memory’. I love this aspect of the profession because it allows you to become intimately connected with the history of a location, while at the same time understanding where specific energy frequencies could benefit from healing and realignments, while still acknowledging and honoring the rich history of that given space.With either description, it’s believed we’re entangled in the history of a location that could influence current moments if gone unchecked. Acknowledgment of the past is very important to co-exist with the energies that reside on the propert...

Feng Shui in direct translation means "wind and water". That may seem a bit abstract, so to try and provide an easier connection to Feng Shui we invite you to think about change, transformation, and enhancement of one's life and overall surroundings. To be fair, for many, just hearing the word "change" or "transformation" can be unsettling.Yet those who ask for a Feng Shui Consultation, are literally asking for help to change something within their life's story. Maybe it has to do with relationship dynamics, establishing work-life balance, being more courageous to follow a life dream, starting a family, or healing from loss. The life narratives are endless.  The fact is that choosing to embrace Feng Shui is also saying you are choosing to embrace a newfound perspective on life. You begi...

A common Feng Shui Question, “What is The Best Type of Desk for Your Home Office in Feng Shui?”A quick response is to begin by choosing a desk that has a solid flat surface. Second, most desks are encouraged to be made of wood, as this symbolizes strong support and a growth mindset. But if you can’t find a wood-designed desk, at least make sure the surface offers a solid surface and not a glass design. Third, you’ll also want to make sure you choose a desk size (length, depth, and width) that suits the nature of your work. This meaning, do you need a lot of surface space to work on, or not so much. In any case, you want to be reasonable with what you choose so you don’t feel restricted when utilizing the desk surface. These are the most foundational observations to start with when consi...

All aboard!! Jamaica Station has a direct connection to Grand Central Madison which is a new terminal that is directly below the Grand Central Terminal. The escalator in Grand Central Madison is the longest in New York City! - at 182 feet, with a one-way trip on the escalator taking about 90 seconds. It's recommended if you have a scheduled meeting, it best to leave some extra time to navigate your way out of the Grand Central Madison terminal. You can also view some amazing mosaics designed by artists Yayoi Kusama and Kiki Smith.  I'll admit, I didn't have time to fully explore as I was on a timeline to meet a client for a Feng Shui Consultation. The next time I travel into Grand Central Madison, I'll be sure to set aside the proper time to view the mosaics. I think it's great that com...

One of the perks when providing Feng Shui consultations throughout New York City, is I get to visit locations I may not otherwise go to on my own. After completing a Feng Shui consultation I made it a point to check out various locations that included the New York Public Library in Bryant Park (which was helpful because I needed to renew my library card) and the Helmsley Building.The New York Public Library is located at 42nd Street and Fifth Avenue. The origins of the library began between 1890 and 1920.  The New York Governor Samuel J. Tilden, the Astor family, and James Lennox were all to thank for their encouragement and financial contribution to establishing the New York Public Library. The library doors officially opened on May 24th, 1911. A fun observation: There are two lion sta...

Mortgage rate hikes driving would-be buyers into rental market If a hot housing market brought rents to boil, the cool-down should cause apartment prices to fall, right?Wrong.In June, the average Manhattan rent topped $5,000, a historical first, according to a report by appraisal firm Miller Samuel for Douglas Elliman. Meanwhile, the borough’s median rent, which reached a record $4,000 in May, edged up to $4,050 last month.Those gains came as surging mortgage rates caused home sales to dip. And where did many of those home hunters end up?The rental market.Rising rents, which have characterized this year’s market, have become increasingly tied to surging mortgage rates, according to Jonathan Miller, report author and CEO of appraisal firm Miller Samuel.“The spike in mortgage rates has im...

Last weekend I had back-to-back Feng Shui and Reiki healing sessions throughout New York City.During my lunch break, I decided to visit the historic South Street Seaport, located adjacent to the financial district in lower Manhattan. This was a wonderful visit as it was bustling with outdoor shoppers and dining, and even lounge chairs located at the end of the pier where you could just lay back to take in the views and pause for a moment. While exploring the South Steet Seaport I came across a free tour of the Wavertree 1885 ship. The tour provided some basic facts about the Wavertree ship and in all, this ship has been through a lot, shipping cargo all around the world in all kinds of weather. The fact that it's still standing is pretty impressive and the tour shared the entire ship is...
