Hi everyone!

You haven’t heard much from me lately as I took another sabbatical from blogging to continue my studies in Feng Shui.

(There is always more to learn and as you know, feng shui is my passion)!I’m so excited to share some wonderful ideas and tips on how Feng Shui can improve your life! I will be blogging regularly to assist you in any way I can!

I must tell you the joy I personally receive from having good Feng Shui in my own life. I’ve had many challenges,  my share of heartbreak and disappointments but I can tell you truthfully, that with out the balance and  harmony that feng shui has provided for me, I would be a mess!

No, I’m not being dramatic…it’s true!!

I also believe in the power of prayer. Since Feng Shui has absolutely nothing to do with religion, I am free to worship as I wish. Feng Shui will never get in the way of my strong belief in God and my Christian beliefs.

I also receive so much joy from my clients who report such wonderful results from having Feng Shui done in their homes and offices! Maybe that’s why I often suffer from TMJ symptoms as I’m constantly smiling from ear to ear! (I must run that by my doctor)!!

Today I have a tip for you!


I get questions about mirrors so often in my practice that I decided to  devote some blogging time to try and clear up some confusion.

So many people ask me about mirrors in the bedroom! In our school of Feng Shui, mirrors placed correctly in a bedroom are a good source of positive energy.

A round or oval mirror in a master bedroom is always good for marital harmony. (If you’re standing at the door of your bedroom, the best place for the mirror would be the far right corner of the room. This is considered the Marriage and Relationship corner of the bedroom).

Another good place would be on the wall behind your bed. Now, many of you worry about earthquakes here in California, but if you have a good handyman who can secure it with bolts, etc. you’ll be fine.

The main “remedy” for a mirror behind the bed is that issues of the past can be released and resolved. (This was important for me personally as I had to work through some painful issues in my own life)!

I have a lovely antique mirror behind my bed and I feel quite safe. The way it’s secured, the entire wall would have to fall, in which case? Oh dear!!

Check in with me again to get some more tips on how to encourage abundance, prosperity, better health and happier relationships with Feng Shui!

I send Many Blessings,

Good Health, Good Feng Shui and FOOD!

The food we eat is about balancing the nutrients in our body to produce good health and energy. And it’s another source of achieving  Good Feng Shui!

I once knew an individual who only ate foods of one color! Green! Eccentric? Perhaps, but what he was doing to his system was unfortunate, and he thought he was “eating healthy!”

So you’re saying, “but he ate healthy veggies, how can that be bad?” Well, too much of a good thing CAN be bad! It’s all about balance!  The ying and yang of life.

My own opinion is not to be too fanatical about food in the name of HEALTH. Having a diet that excludes one entire food group is not what I would consider healthy!

To produce harmony and balance in our bodies, we need a variety of foods to stay healthy. Healthy ‘chi’ and  life balance are directly influenced by the food we eat. It begins with how the food is harvested, going right through how we cook it and the environment and mood in how we eat it!

So grabbing dinner standing over the sink is not recommended. Having arguments over dinner is harmful no matter how many organic foods are on the menu.

The food itself should achieve harmony and balance. Positive energy flows through food as well as everything else, therefore the source of that energy should be handled very carefully.

How We Achieve  Balance and Harmony in the Foods We Eat.


If you would like to eat to maintain good balance, good health and good feng shui, it is recommended that your plate contain a variety of colors and textures that resonate with each other.


It’s important to try and use the yin/yang balance in your flavors as well. Achieving a good balance would include a meal that contains strong flavors along with delicate ones, all balanced by the use of vibrant colors.


It is so important to appreciate the aroma of the food cooking. It sets the tone of the meal soon to be enjoyed. If the cooking aroma ‘turns you off’ it’s best not to eat it as your body naturally will resist the food even if you are not aware of it.

Bon Appetite, and enjoy the good feng shui of your delicious dinner tonight!

Many Blessings,

Why Feng Shui??


Posted by | Posted in Feng Shui Tips | Posted on 01-12-2011

The essential reason for having feng shui done on your home and/or office space is so the energy or (chi) that flows throughout those spaces  can be more conducive to your health, development and success in life.

By optimizing and tuning the flow of energy within these spaces with feng shui,  you will directly benefit by feeling an enhanced energy in your every day life. You might notice your health improves. Your business may become more successful and perhaps, finances will improve as well. Relationships also may become happier and you will notice more harmony within your home and workspace.

Feng Shui Tip:

Keep Your stove clean!!

Did you know that your stove links to your money situation? That’s right!!

Keeping your stove clean cultivates positive Wealth Energy.  A stove that  has oil and/or food droppings can literally stagnate your flow of wealth and make it harder for you to hold onto money! So mop up those spills, my friends, and visualize money coming to you and not flowing out of your hands too quickly!

Yours in Good Feng Shui!

How Does Feng Shui Work?

Tags: , , , , , , , , , ,

EmailFacebookGoogle GmailGoogle+LinkedInTwitterPrintFriendlyShare

Many people ask me how does Feng Shui work?

It’s a logical question, especially since there seems to be so much mystery associated with the process.

The logic is actually quite simple. Chi or energy is a life force that flows throughout our bodies and around our homes and workplaces. What good feng shui does is balance and harmonize this life force energy so we become healthier in mind, body and spirit and we are more apt to realize our full potential in life!

Chi is a powerful force that flows through all living things. When your own personal chi is at it’s highest, you will feel strong and vital. Excercise, meditation, and being  with supportive family and friends will all contribute to stronger personal chi.

The chi of your home, for instance, can either work for you or against you. Every moment of every day your home environment is either supporting you or draining you of that all important life energy.

If you are being drained by your space, you might notice that your health may not be optimal. Your relationships may be suffering, and your ability to make and hold on to money maybe compromised in some way.

Your home is your “second body” and what goes on in your home directly impacts your life in general. either positively or negatively. Even though you might not be aware that this is happening, the inner truth of feng shui is that if you enhance your home’s chi, it will have a direct and immediate impact on your life. Therefore, having good feng shui and enhancing this powerful energy will create a wonderful pathway to maximizing your destiny!

Good Feng Shui is available to anyone who desires a more balanced and harmonious life!

Feng Shui and Your Feline!

Good Feng Shui is about bringing healing energy or (Chi) into our homes and work spaces.

Good Chi makes our lives healthier, happier and more successful. Chi swirls around outdoors and we, who are Feng Shui Consultants, work with clients to make simple adjustments so the Chi will enter your space and then circulate within the home.

Now, this is FUN!

One of the things good Chi encounters is your Cat, and the good news is that she/he is constantly bringing about a positive influence when she connects with that all powerful energy!

Your sweet Kittie is likely to be most often on the move, and constantly stirring up Chi whenever he/she goes about the house. This is GOOD!

The love and affection that he/she generates from you and your family is a blessing! Your “baby” willingly will give all of that back in return.  The result is a wonderful source of healthy energy circulating around your home!

I often find my cat, Henry hovering near my front door. It’s as if he is monitoring the energy flow near my entryway. (And this is when I am IN the house)!

Not only do I love him dearly, I also know he is contributing to my health and well-being on so many levels!

So, to all of you who I consider lucky enough to share your home with a feline companion, I wish you all A Very Good Feng Shui day!

A Remarkable Feng Shui Experience!


Posted by | Posted in Feng Shui and your Home | Posted on 09-05-2011

I love my job!

I also love to hear from people who have experienced a major positive shift in their lives after working on the Feng Shui of their homes and work spaces.

Case in point.

About 3 months ago I got a call from a very stressed Mom who asked for help. She relayed a litany of enormous problems that were affecting her  family and asked if I could do anything about it?

After explaining that feng shui is not a ‘magic bullet’  for all that ails you, and that I don’t perform magic, she agreed to send me a floor plan of her home with additional information on what was going on in her life. 

I explained one truth. Although feng shui can’t solve all your problems, a home with good feng shui is a home in balance and harmony and the occupants tend to live healthier more prosperous lives. She was excited!

I completed her charts and studied her floor plan. I clearly saw why so many unfortunate circumstances were being intensified by the unbalanced energy in her home. 

Your home represents what we call “your second body.”  It’s hard for people to understand that the shape and design of their homes may be affecting, in some way, what goes on OUTSIDE their homes!

For instance. The center of your home represents the heart of the home, much like the center of your body represents your heart area. The energy in the center should be very positive and healthy to allow for the physical, mental and emotional health of the family to flourish.

Our Mom had two out of three no-no’s. She had a staircase and a bathroom right in her home center. (The third is a stove)! A bathroom literally drains away health and a staircase acts like a corkscrew with energy constantly being directed downward. Not only is health affected, but these issues also may make it harder for occupants to hold on to money…as it’s constantly falling and draining away.

She reported that her children were sleeping above a garage (considered a negative energy space). Not good to have a bedroom or an office above a garage. The children were not doing well in school. Both children had constant respiratory problems and were fighting with each other.

After looking at her floor plan, I saw an indentation  (or a missing area) in the South west corner of her home. This is the area of her home that nourishes relationships, marital and otherwise. She was in a panic because she and her husband were talking divorce. He also had been out of a job for over a year.

Both husband and wife had physical and emotional health issues that were exhausting them. She also had a very difficult time concentrating on a project she wanted to do to start a home based business.

Money was beyond tight, health was not good, relationships within the whole family were difficult and no one seemed to care!

This was a very unhappy, unfullfilled lady!

I made an appointment to visit her home and on site, I found a pool directly in the center of their back yard.  (This is an area where the element of FIRE should be dominant), so all this water was making it more difficult for anyone in the home to be successful in business. (Much of her husband’s problem).

Also a lot of water in this area could possibly invite some sort of litigation which she revealed had gone on just recently!

Whew! A challenge for sure, but I set to work!

Without a lot of costly changes or adjustments, I guided her to making some simple changes to get the energy flowing properly. I worked with her on the center of her home, and adjusted certain elements in their bedrooms as well.

I also had them make a few simple changes to their backyard pool area.

I just got a call from her and her husband a few days ago and they were over the moon! Her husband started out with, “Elaine, I have NO IDEA what this feng shui thing is all about, but WOW! Have things changed for the better!”

They had glasses of wine in their hands and were celebrating an absolutely fabulous job that he had just gotten. Both of them were sleeping better, having more fun and divorce discussions were off the table!

They just made plans to pay off their credit cards and maybe even plan a trip to Hawaii in the Fall.

The children, after adjusting their bedrooms, were doing better in school (I got an A one of them said)! They were also getting along better and their health improved dramatically!

Husband and wife reported feeling more romantic and Mom has successfully completed a project to launch her home business!


I’m so delighted to share this story because it reinforces my commitment to assist people in any way I can….. to a better and more fulfilling life. That is my commitment!

Yours in Good Feng Shui!

Feng Shui and Your Health


Posted by | Posted in Feng Shui for Health | Posted on 15-01-2011

EmailFacebookGoogle GmailGoogle+LinkedInTwitterPrintFriendlyShare

It’s important to know that the feng shui of your home can directly affect your health.

Our bodies need a harmonious flow of energy to facilitate the nourishment of our cells, cell rejuvenation and to support smooth metabolism.

Your environment may have hidden messages that you’re not aware of that may be affecting the health and well-being of you and your family.

Any energy imbalance can be a trigger for a physical, emotional or mental health issue. I’m not saying that the imbalance will cause the disease (certainly not)  but it may lower your ability to fend off a physical or emotional issue.

Just as an acupuncturist can  heal  by placing small needles at meridian points on the body,  practicing feng shui can help heal the imbalances in your environment.

The proper energy (chi) or feng shui of your space is a delicate matter, and it’s important to understand and locate the areas in your environment that may be stagnant, already blocked or basically oppressive. These areas could block healing energy needed for healing and recovery.

Now, detecting these imbalances can be very subtle. (A trained feng shui practitioner can diagnose and immediately find the problem). You however, may feel that you are not as comfortable as you should be in your own home. You may not look forward to coming home. There may be certain rooms that feel different to you and not as warm and inviting as others.

There may be an influx of illnesses in the family. 

Simple adjustments as adding a plant or a light in a certain area, or moving your bed or desk to another position or even changing the color scheme of a room can produce positive results.  

Now I want to take this opportunity to inform you that feng shui does not “cure’ a disease or disorder. No one can claim that! It’s certainly not a magic bullet for all that ails you! Getting sick has most to do with how strong (or weak) our immune systems are and how we fight off infection and disease. , 

I do know however, from good experience that a home that has good Feng Shui (meaning a healthy flow of energy or chi) will generally have healthier more productive occupants. When harmony and balance is restored, it is natural for you and your family to attract better health, happier relationships and more prosperity!. 

I wish for you great Health and Happiness in the New Year!

NOTE: If you’d like some good information on how to balance your home with Feng Shui,  I have written a very easy to read Ebook that you may download today!  It’s loaded with great tips for you to start using feng shui today!  CLICK HERE  for your book!

Feng Shui In your Garden


Posted by | Posted in Feng Shui for the Garden | Posted on 23-11-2010

Tags: , , , , , ,

EmailFacebookGoogle GmailGoogle+LinkedInTwitterPrintFriendlyShare

When you add good feng shui to your garden, you want to use some of the same basic principles that you would use in your home.

For instance, the energy or (chi) of your garden should be balanced and in harmony with the five basic elements in life. These elements make up everything in the world. They are; Earth; Metal; Wood; Water; and Fire.

To have a balanced garden, all must be present. These elements work together to create a harmonious and welcoming space.

It’s easy to implement these elements, but placing them in the correct areas is also important.

The Wood element is represented obviously with the trees, plants and greenery. It is also the element that nourishes Family. The left side of your garden (from your back door) would be a wonderful area to place lush green plants and vibrant flowers.

The Metal element can be as simple as your patio furniture or your child’s swing set. Metal resonates with healthy children, so placing Metal near the right center side of your garden (find by standing at your back door) will benefit your children.

Fire is perhaps your BBQ or fire pit.   (Try to place your BBQ or fire pit somewhere in the center area just outside the back of your home) This is also the element that literally “fires” up FAME and REPUTATION, and can prosper your business.

Water can be a beautiful fountain in the upper left hand corner of your back garden. (Stand at your back door and look to the far left of your property). This is the area considered to be where water is most effective in stimulating wealth and abundance).

Earth is represented clearly in your garden! The Earth element is “grounding” and supports Health. (Try not to have an overabundance of hardscape. Balance it with healthy landscaping).

I will be writing much more on the feng shui of gardens. There is so much information to share on creating the most beautiful and beneficial garden space.

I will be interviewing my colleague, Julie Molinaire in a future blog. Julie is part of our Harmonious Home Team and she is a landscape designer extraordinaire! We work closely to create the ultimate garden experience for our clients. Check out her site by clicking on her banner on the right.

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday!

Stove Position For Good Feng Shui


Posted by | Posted in Feng Shui and your Home | Posted on 13-11-2010

Tags: , , , ,

EmailFacebookGoogle GmailGoogle+LinkedInTwitterPrintFriendlyShare

What direction should your stove face? The Compass School of Feng Shui traditionally uses a compass direction to determine the proper direction of your stove.

In the Western School of Feng Shui (brought to this country by Grand Master Professor Thomas Lin Yun) the positioning of your stove should face the direction that allows you to see the door to the kitchen.

This may not always be possible, so you can use the simple ‘remedy’ of placing a mirror behind the stove so you can properly see in the mirror who may be approaching behind you. 

Why is this necessary, you may ask?

Even if you live alone, it’s important that you can see the door while standing at your stove because if not, you may be prone to having your physical, financial, and emotional health negatively affected.

Stay well, and have a good feng shui day!

Feng Shui For Weight Loss


Posted by | Posted in Feng Shui for Health | Posted on 02-10-2010

Tags: , , , , ,

EmailFacebookGoogle GmailGoogle+LinkedInTwitterPrintFriendlyShare

I know the concept of Feng Shui helping you loose weight may seem questionable to you, but there are certain tips that I can share with you that might assist you in “the battle of the bulge.” 

Feng Shui has been successfully utilized in achieving great results in attracting financial success, improved health, happier relationships and even a new partner.  It has to do with the environment we live and work in.

For instance, if we live in an environment stuffed with clutter, than we are more apt to be “stuffed” as well.

We look to the balance of energy and how we co-exist with it. Science teaches us that we either have positive or negative energies surrounding us. The energies of the earth are either “Yin” or “Yang.” Yang is the male energy and is mostly active and light. Yin is the female energy and is dark and passive.

It is very important to balance the two opposing energies to produce a healthy result which is considered good feng shui.

The kitchen is the main focus of weight control in feng shui. If you enter your home and immediately see your kitchen, this can contribute to weight gain and digestive problems. Just seeing the kitchen will trigger a “food response.” 

I recently worked with an overweight couple who have always entered their home from the garage which led directly into the kitchen. They had been on constant diets throughout the years with no success. I suggested that they enter from the front door while on their current diet. Three  months later, I got an exuberant call from them. They had both lost a significant amount of weight and were healthier than they had been in years!

Choosing correct colors for a kitchen will also help in achieving weight control.  If the kitchen is too Yang, your appetite will be constantly stimulated. Yang colors in the kitchen are reds and yellows. 

Try using more Yin colors in the kitchen to curb the sensation of hunger. Yin colors are either soft blues and greens, or even black. Even eating off of vibrant colored plates can stimulate appetite and you will eat more!

And last but not least is the importance of getting rid of clutter if you are trying to loose weight!  Accumulating clutter is a way of “holding on” and it may affect your ability to successfully get rid of those extra pounds.

 When you clean out clutter you are promoting  healthy yang energy. This will balance the energy of your home as well as your physical body.

So clean out, give away or have a garage sale!

You might be surprised at just how good you feel!

Many Blessings
