Beam Away

Screen Shot 2014-12-18 at 10.03.27 AM
This A-frame beam may be pleasant to look at but my feng shui hunch is it’s not a great placement for a bed. Traditionally, feng shui practice tells us that the beam is pushing a heavy weight and that energy can be felt if you are sensitive to it. You may experience it as headaches, restlessness, bad dreams, and uncomfortable sleeping positions.Solutions to counteracting beam energy:

*Relocate the bed so it’s not under the beam.

*Try a canopy bed with a white fabric between you and the beam.

*Paint the beam white. White symbolizes metal, metal cuts wood and negative energy will be diffused.

*Place a traditional Chinese feng shui firecracker under the beam. Perhaps you can make it look like an art sculpture to disguise its appearance. Much easier to paint the beam!Screen Shot 2014-12-18 at 10.10.08 AM

Scott’s dear friends Vladmir Kagan and Erica Wilson peppered the lexicon of Scott’s storytelling. Scott used to stay at their NYC apartment from time to time. Vladi is perhaps the most iconic design icon of the contemporary furniture industry and certainly a hero of Scott’s. In the case of the Kagans, the Woman Behind the Man was just as legendary. Erica Wilson was an idol of mine long before I met Scott. Her needlework was inspiration for many of my sweater designs and her color palette of yarns at her famous shop launched many a collection on 7th Avenue. I wonder if she knew that we “borrowed” her hues? A most moving and uplifting tribute to his wife–gone 3 years now– can be found on Vladi’s Blog. Click Here and includes many fine old photographs from years gone by. The Kagans love story was legendary and continues to inspire.

PETS & FENG SHUI

REPOSTING THIS AS IT’S STILL TRUE

A great post at Apartment Therapy guaranteed to put a smile on your face: “Dogs in House Tours, the Best of 2010″.  Here at Feng Shui By Fishgirl I get asked questions about pets and feng shui quite a bit. Are pets good feng shui? Absolutely! A well-trained, healthy, happy pet can add so much good ch’i (energy) to your space and it’s been proven scientifically that animals can help us to heal faster and live longer. Can keeping pets pose feng shui problems? Yes, of course. If we neglect their hygiene–and our own–by allowing fur to accumulate, or ignoring the cat litter box that needs to be kept fresh that can cancel out all the good vibes a pet contributes to the homespace.

LOVE YOURSELF, THE REST WILL FOLLOW

Feng Shui By Fishgirl:

HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY!!!

Nothing’s better for your feng shui than taking good care of yourself. How else will you have the energy to take care of others? Putting your own happiness first is the best gift you can give to the world. All the rest will flow from that. This doesn’t mean I’m advising you to be selfish or greedy like a Wall St. Banker. Your happiness doesn’t derive from doing harm to others. But it doesn’t come from doing harm to yourself, either. Read on:

Think Positive 30 Blog has an uplifting short post on loving yourself that cites Lucille Ball as inspiration. Check it out here.
