Intentions change as life circumstances change. I realized, in reflecting on both my childhood and my initial choice of study in college, I was already interested in Feng Shui on an intuitive level. I had no awareness I was waiting for the language of it to show up. And show up it did when I recognized something that felt very familiar in a little Feng Shui article so many years later!
We recently devoted a Saturday to an organic farm tour, sponsored by our local co-ops. On the designated day, we began with a local urban mushroom farm and ended with a small, family owned organic farm located a little over an hour south of the cities. It made me aware of the high salt content, refined sugars, pesticides, growth hormones, preservatives and other additives present in the excessive processing of our foods.
I began to change how I shopped for groceries and prepared meals for my young family. My first food co-op experience was going to the home of nearby neighbor who started a co-op in their garage. The only thing I remember of that experience is bringing sterilized glass jars to fill with natural peanut butter.
We had also planted a large vegetable garden in our back yard. During that period, a nearby church opened a food co-op in a small red house on their property. That little co-op is what we now know as Lakewinds. When that time did come, I learned our kitchen, after our entryway, is the second most important room in the house. The Chinese attach great importance to the kitchen and revere the cook.
Feng shui essentials
If you are upset, angry or sad, avoid preparing food for yourself or for your family! Now that is food for thought! Two blogs from modernpioneermom. Unfortunately, he reinforced that concern! We began our tour at Mississippi Mushrooms. If you love mushrooms, this is a must visit! From there we visited two additional farms and were absolutely delighted to meet young farm families committed to growing and raising healthy, sustainable food.
We saw chickens provided with lots of room to free range, not on gravel, but on vegetation. We were introduced to hogs that have their own names. For specific information, check out TC Farm. I am grateful to all small farmers who are committed to providing us a powerful source of energy to fuel and nourish our Chi! Please support them! The quality of our lives, and our planet, depends on it! Those years were a continuous source of pleasure and learning. I had the privilage to work with hundreds of amazing survivors of stroke and traumatic head injury and their families.
But, after 22 years, it was time to transition to retirement. The numbers add up to the significant Feng Shui number nine, representing power and completion. As the time grew closer, my eager anticipation of leaving was mixed with a huge sense of gratitude. I was acutely aware of how many wonderful people I had met along the way, both patients and staff from whom I learned so much.
Often there was an assumption that the person was on vacation, only to learn a month later that they were gone for good. I did not want that to happen. I like closure and warm goodbyes. So, my second intention: a graceful departure and closure. I also wrote Thank You notes and brought treats. Intention number three: stop buying any clothing or accessories related to work. So I created a little ceremony. For weeks leading up to the June 12 deadline, I would come home from work and place the clothes I had worn that day in a farewell pile to be donated to Goodwill.
During that time, I rewarded myself by purchasing a fabulous pair of red heels. No mistaking those for work shoes! And then, the day arrived! On June 12, , my husband drove me to work, planning to pick me up afterward for a celebratory dinner. A length of red fabric is placed across a doorway so that half of it is in the room and half on the other side of the threshold. Walking over it represents a personal journey from one place to the next. A transition, if you will. I was leaving the familiar and crossing the threshold to the unknown. Our past serves as a bridge to our future and walking the red carpet represented that bridge, leading me to a new stage of life.
See a Problem?
While the time has gone unbelievably quickly, I am grateful the journey has been exciting, revealing and instructive. Environment is defined as the circumstances, objects or conditions by which one is surrounded. Creating a garden environment provides an opportunity to be in harmony with the natural world. Whether it is a pot of flowers on your deck, a full-blown perennial garden or the surprise of a blue garden door, both the design and planting begin a partnership with nature.
I have loved gardening for as long as I can recall. My Mother loved to garden so, perhaps, that was the influence. There was lots of yard and an existing large garden that had not been attended to. I was newly divorced and working full time. No time to garden. My townhome was landscaped with rock and shrubs and the absence of maintenance was a relief.
For the first summer! To forget how to dig the earth and to tend the soil is to forget ourselves. The following summer, a garden was born. Six years later, I began my study of Feng Shui and a new perspective to gardening was introduced. While the practice of Feng Shui is more commonly associated with buildings and their interiors, the outside world nature remains its original focus. The Feng Shui of your house is believed to influence your life from a personal point of view. The Feng Shui of your landscaping influences the more public aspects of your life. Your space reflects your life is a basic Feng Shui principle.
When change happens in your physical environment, your life is affected in some small or big way. And what about the outer aspect of your environment, the landscape? Think of driving by a home that has a well-cared for landscape with healthy shrubs, a lovely garden or pots of flowers. Now think of driving by a home where the shrubs are dead and flowers uncared for. Feng Shui taught me to garden with a different intention. I was able to more deeply tap into my inspiration and creativity as I became more in harmony with the natural world.
It focused my attention on optimizing the Chi of my outside space to welcome new opportunities and experiences in my life. No surprise there! Instead of straight borders, I began to curve the garden beds to create a gentle flow of Chi. Balancing active energy with still energy, I incorporated large rocks to anchor and define the garden.
I added fountains and birdbaths to bring auspicious water to the property. Sound is an important component of the Chi of a garden and is present in the gentle gurgle of my water fountains, the melodious sounds of an added wind chime and the songbirds attracted to the birdfeeders. I added garden benches and sculptures to provide focal points for quiet thought and contemplation. A charming fairy statue stands as a sentinel among the hosta at the entry of my patio.
Buddha statues sit among the flowers and contribute to a sense of stillness. Coming upon something unexpected and delightful definitely lifts your Chi. A little elf house is tucked in the front garden, seen only by those who take the time to look. Throughout the gardens, fairy houses add a sense of playfulness. Both the approach to your home and to the front door are critically important areas to attract positive Chi.
Two Foo Dogs protect the approach to our home and potted rose trees flank our front door, welcoming all who enter. Creating a garden environment is a work in progress; a labor of love! The glory of gardening: hands in the dirt, head in the sun, heart with nature. To nurture a garden is to feed not just on the body, but the soul. We were excited to embark on a new Frank Lloyd Wright adventure!
As Feng Shui practitioners, my friend and I were interested in how his architecture might, or might not, relate to Feng Shui principles of living and working environments. Elaborate floor plans and detailing were discarded for flowing internal spaces organized around a central fireplace or hearth.
Wright designed them to reach out to nature, not to other buildings. Frank Lloyd Wright. And now, Tom and I were about to see what the Smithsonian magazine lists as one of the 28 places to see before you die! Fallingwater was the weekend house for the Edgar J. Wright knew they loved the waterfall on the property and decided to make it part of the new house.
Balancing the Chi
Built between and , Fallingwater instantly became famous, and today is a National Historic Landmark. In , Wright was featured on the cover of Time Magazine. The house was owned and used by the Kaufmann family until , when Edgar Kaufmann, Jr. Fallingwater is the only major Wright-designed house to open to the public with its furnishings, artwork, and setting intact. We were not, however, allowed to take photos of the interior.
This is in keeping with the Feng Shui principle that uses nature as the model. Fallingwater is very much engaged with its surroundings, in fact, it is an integral part of nature. Study nature, love nature, stay close to nature. It will never fail you. In the following interview, Alex Stark, a graduate of the Yale University School of Architecture and a practitioner of Feng Shui and European Geomancy , gives an interesting assessment of Fallingwater from a Feng Shui perspective in an intriguing article in which he was asked to assess the Feng Shui of five iconic houses of 20th-century architecture.

Here is some of what Stark says about Wright and, specifically, Fallingwater:. This house belies a very deep understanding of the energies proper to the earth, sky and nature. For Fallingwater, Wright anchored the house to a boulder, making a very deep connection to the earth. Water is amorphous, and Wright echoed the movement of water in the shifting planes of the house. In Feng Shui terms, water is one of the ways to attract prosperity—by having water at the front of the house, and, in addition, by making it approach the house from the left and then turn away from it and disappear underground.
This is exactly what you perceive from the balconies of this house. In addition, the site faces south and is protected from the north by a rising slope. Taken together, these are basic criteria that support the success of a house on such a site. So Wright fulfilled a fundamental requirement for success. Wright intentionally brought the height of the ceilings down, creating a yin environment that is balanced by the brightness of the window openings.
Everywhere in the house Wright worked yin-yang, both on the orthogonal axis and on the diagonal. On the ground floor, the vertical solid element of the hearth is positioned diagonally across the room from the open translucent element of the skylight and the staircase leading down to a wading pool below the house. On the other diagonal, Wright balanced the expansiveness of the back terrace with the enclosure of the entry.
A building should appear to grow easily from its site and be shaped to harmonize with its surroundings if Nature is manifest there. Other than the small bedrooms, which I would personally find challenging, I would be most happy to live with a waterfall! John Muir. The Feng Shui Institute of the Midwest was organizing a fundraiser in memory of two spouses and one member who had passed from cancer. All members were invited to bring any Feng Shui books and related items no longer wanted to exchange for donations to cancer research. Spring de-cluttering had not yet entered my mind and, if it had, my home office bookcase would not have been on the list!
I took a look at the bookcase housing my Feng Shui books and decided to dig in — one shelf at a time! First, review its function in your life, discerning if it continues to have a valid purpose: Does it still fit? Do you still use it? Does it continue to bring you pleasure? Books are tough! They are old friends! So, I sat on the floor with my old friends piled around me. Many of the books were filled with underlining and notes in the margins, as I was voraciously trying to absorb all I was learning at the time. It was fun to attend the fundraiser and see what each person had brought.
While tempting, I stayed true to my intention of not bringing anything home. Oh, except for one — a beautiful pop-up book of Tibetan Buddhist Altars! Thank you to the person who released it! Author unknown. After returning home, I spent the remainder of the day organizing that particular bookcase. Clearing out releases old energy and allows clarity to the area in question.
Clutter in this area of the Bagua can limit your ability to learn, make wise decisions, and improve yourself. That must have needed attention, thus the FSIM email!

Mary Johanson, maryorganizes. That office project led to another interesting area of de-cluttering — my computer emails. As a result, emails accumulated — 16, of them! Talk about electronic clutter!

It also represents any group that comes together for a common cause: people with whom you work, your church, a book club, etc. Clutter here can cause problems with superiors, authority figures and parents, as well as within your family or community as a whole.
