Time for Feng Shui, Why We Need It Now

by Heather I. Melcer.
Our world is in flux, I don’t think anyone can argue with that these days. We are in the midst of transformation, from the mundane aspects of day-to-day living to the spiritual evolution of mankind on a very deep level. Many people are feeling these shifts in one way or another, sometimes with great contrast and conflict. The rocky divergence of society can knock us off our feet and put us out of harmony and balance with ourselves, our purpose and our goals. Turning to Feng Shui, now more than ever can assist us in bringing ourselves back to center. … More Time for Feng Shui, Why We Need It Now

Feng Shui Bagua Map Placement – A Snapshot View

by Heather I. Melcer.
There are many tools that we use in Feng Shui to bring balance and harmony to our homes and lives, the Bagua Map is one of them. I’ll keep it brief and spare you lots of theory at the moment, but in a nutshell our home is divided into 9 different sections that correspond to 9 different areas of our lives. These are the general category titles as well as their corresponding colors and it looks like this (for now you can just focus on their literal, and somewhat obvious, meanings): … More Feng Shui Bagua Map Placement – A Snapshot View

Feng Shui and the Curse of the Dollar Store

by Heather Melcer
I was doing a Feng Shui consultation follow-up for a close friend of mine. We walked through her apartment assessing all the changes I told her to make during our initial meeting. We were passing by the kitchen (which was the Relationship area of her home according to the Bagua Map) and she was pointing out a few things changes she made, as this was an area of growth she wanted to focus on. She had this big plastic platter with a pair of two flamingos on display in the corner, the most concentrated point of energy. (As a side note, pairs are good to have represented in some way in this part of the Bagua Map). And without missing a beat, she said in passing, “oh, those are just some cheap-o little things from the dollar store I just got”. … More Feng Shui and the Curse of the Dollar Store

The Feng Shui Stimulus Plan

by Heather Melcer
I’m not usually one to jump on the buzz word bandwagon, however, I was sitting at a diner one evening recently and there was a little laminated advertising card in one of those metal holders in-between the salt and pepper shakers that read: “The Stimulus Breakfast Package.” It went on to describe the abundance of food you would receive for shelling out just one low, low price. I have to admit, first I chuckled at it, and then my mind was off and running. I started to think from a Feng Shui perspective what were the areas that needed the most attention right now, and how each one of us could create our own “stimulus” package. … More The Feng Shui Stimulus Plan

Feng Shui – Going Beyond Your Neighborhood: My Move to the Windy City

by Heather Melcer
Proper furniture placement, the right balance of elements in each room, solid position of a house on the lot, these are all examples of important aspects in Feng Shui. Then we add into the mix the personal energy of the individuals living in the home to get an overall sense of how the energy flow is being impacted. Each person has a unique energy, each one of us “fits” into a different type and style of environment.

What’s this Feng Shui Stuff & Why Do We Need It Anyway?

by Heather Melcer
Yoga, Tai Chi, Acupuncture…these are everyday vocabulary words of modern day society. Whether you actually know what they’re about in-depth or not, is another story. However, most people at least have a sense of the basic concept; that these various methods come form the distant far corners of the world and have something or other to do with bringing balance to our lives. Well, Feng Shui is one more of those gaining popularity on the mainstream tip of the tongue… … More What’s this Feng Shui Stuff & Why Do We Need It Anyway?
