You still have time to enter to win the Blue Hill Inn. Entry fee is $150 and 200 word essay must be yours and yours alone. Check out details on this opportunity to be the new owner of this historic B & B: http://winthebluehillinn.com
I have personally seen this inn and can attest to the feng shui being lovely and positive. Downeast Maine without the kitsch– upscale, charming, and a great place to stay. Why not test your luck?

Beds placed in front of windows tend to be design and feng shui no-no’s. Except when they are as cleverly done and as thoughtfully balanced as this one is. The key is to incorporate proper window dressing as well. Check out about a dozen more excellent examples of how to solve this design dilemma with good feng shui at ElementsofStyleBlog.

The Feng Shui By Fishgirl Blog received such a strong reaction to the Hobbit House post that I decided to look for more Hobbit Houses. Came across this fab story about the abandoned Lord of the Rings set in New Zealand. Click here to go to the original blog post at WebEcoist to see 15 Hobbit Houses.

I read an interesting feng shui article recently entitled “Could your canopy bed be causing your depression?” Please go read the article and then come back to see my take on it here. (The blog where I found the article didn’t allow for comments otherwise I would have put my opinion there with the page I found it on). Here is the photo of the bed in question.
I’m happy to hear that the owner of the bed was relieved of her depression and headaches when she removed the canopy. Just looking at this one gives me a headache. For me, the reason is the gauzy shroud-like fabric. Symbolic of a death shroud (white color in Chinese tradition is the color one wears to funerals), also the weight of the fabric is transparent–ghostly– and draped down low over the bed itself instead of pulled taut like a ceiling would be. It’s all wrong for the substantial bed furniture that it is draped to. I’m betting that a canopy done properly in the right fabric would not have had the same ill effects on the owner of this bedroom. Another reason for depression when none can be found is to do some detective work on who lived in the home before you. Perhaps someone with drug problems, divorce, depression, or even someone who lingered and died here or killed themselves here. This is something that could cause problems for the new tenant.

Have you ever experienced a ghostly presence in real life or in dream time? It could take the form of hearing a voice like this story from Trainee Golem Builder Blog (where I borrowed this great ghost picture from). Or it could be that you are having a problem with shattering glasses and things breaking frequently in your home space. Some people I’ve spoken to who live in centuries-old homes like their ghosts and feel that they add friendly energy to their lives. As a feng shui practitioner I have witnessed many paranormal entities. I always recommend removing ch’i energy that doesn’t belong to you. Get rid of residual energy by doing a thorough smudge / incense/ space clearing. You’ll feel more energized and lighter once you’ve banished the otherworldly energy.

People are most interested in the feng shui of their bedrooms. I’m not surprised since we spend a third of our lives in there! Let’s analyze the bedroom shown above that I got from the Open Spaces feng shui website:
GOOD FENG SHUI:
*The canopy of draped fabric is a good feng shui solution that neutralizes the sloped ceiling. This is also a great solution for too-high-ceilings, creating a cozier sleeping space for you. However, see below for negatives about this particular canopy.
*Pretty, soft colors and expensive bedding are feng shui enhancers. That being said, the sheets could be improved (see below).
NEEDS FENG SHUI IMPROVEMENT:
*There’s only one bedside table and lamp. There should be one on either side of the bed for optimum feng shui balance.
*The canopy has a split down the center of it. It’s better feng shui if the fabric used was all of one piece, symbolizing unity for the couple sleeping here.This canopy could easily be corrected by sewing the two panels together.
*The bed seems to be pushed into the corner/wall. There would be more ch’i circulating if you had the second bedside table and that would act as a spacer between bed and wall.
*The circular metal wall art to the right of the bed is hung too high.Make sure it’s at eye level for best viewing and perfect feng shui.
*Too much yang energy created by square shapes. Bed is square and its posts are also squared, the bedside table is a square, the lampshade is a square. More circular yin energy is needed for balance.
*The bedding color is white and it’s linen. White symbolizes metal and unlike in Western countries, white is the color donned at funerals. The sybolism of sleeping between white linen sheets is akin to a burial shroud. If you are a single person looking for love, avoid this type of bedding. Instead, go for shades of peach, pink, red or a print using these colors on white to break up the white.
For the record, Feng Shui By Fishgirl believes that king sized beds get a bum rap and are misunderstood by feng shui newbies. It is true that queen sized beds are recommended as a feng shui cure for those couples needing more romance in their lives as it brings a couple closer together due to the smaller sleeping space provided. It’s also true that many king sized beds are atop twin boxsprings with a divider down the center–a feng shui no-no that can be cured easily with a device like this one. But the real reason feng shui practitioners did not recommend king sized beds is because it used to be that a king sized bed was as big as you could get, thus you already had achieved the best and there was no room left to expand. That was a problem for attracting wealth opportunity from the universe. If you had a king sized bed you were proclaiming to the universe that you already had attained all the wealth you needed. We now have even bigger sized beds: the California King and even custom mattresses. A regular king sized bed is fine (and provides a better nights’ sleep! Always good feng shui) unless you are a singleton looking to find a mate. Upgrade after you find yours!

Caine Monroy is an engineer, designer, creative genius, positive role model, optimist, visionary, dreamer and hardworking entrepreneur. Caine Monroy is also 9 years old. He is the inventor of Caine’s Arcade in East LA. Thanks to the short film about Caine made by Nirvan Mullick we can all share a smile and become inspired by Caine’s story. I don’t want to spoil it for you. Just go to this link to watch the 9 minute film. This kid is well on his way to being the next Steve Jobs or Leonardo da Vinci. Feng Shui By Fishgirl suggests you also make a donation—even $1 is okay— to Caine’s scholarship fund to give your own feng shui a boost! This is one charitable donation that you can actually feel you you are making a difference in someone’s life directly.
