Three Coins and a Fountain

Three Coins and a Fountain


A couple of months ago, we installed, with great precision and cost, a water feature to help Floyd, us, and the Feng Shui.

So far, it seems to be doing some good! We’ve added some water plants, and some plants around. We are trying different accents. The fountain stays in place, but stays running all the time. It’s a nice sound and complements the natural sounds of the birds and crickets.

It also helps it feel a little bit cooler when we are near it. The birds love to bathe and drink out of it, and since it’s always moving and filtering, it’s probably fresher tasting for them. 

The extent to which it’s protecting us and our home is not measurable, simply because we don’t know what would be happening were the fountain not in place. 

We trust it’s doing its job! We really do. You kind of have to; there’s not a way to do a controlled study. Things do seem to be going more smoothly🤞🤞.

I’ll keep you all posted, but we do really love it! 

I Ching – The Magic 8 Ball of Feng Shui


Feng Shui and Bazi are derived largely from “I Ching”-the book of changes. I just found this app on my phone this AM and have been playing with it. 

It’s the Eastern philosophical equivalent of a Magic 8 ball. You ask a question, it gives you an answer, but far more detailed and precise than the Magic 8 ball… ahhh, technology. 

I’ve found I’m not very lucky at this game! It keeps telling me the same thing in different ways over and over – I’ll have to work hard to get what I want, and maybe even then, I won’t get it.

I want a different fortune, but no matter how many times I shake it and how many different times I ask it, it says the same thing.

Maybe there’s something to this? I read the entire “I Ching” in college, but I never really consulted it when I had a life question or any question, for that matter. In Feng Shui and in Bazi, it’s all about the hexagrams, so I think it’s time to dust off my I Ching book and get busy.
