Feng Shui Friday

about_Us

My education in Feng Shui, or the art of placement,began in Japan in 1992. I was teaching English in Sendai, and my employers and his wife were trying to have a baby. One Feng Shui Master and 5 empty white picture frames later, they were expecting, and I was hooked. Over the next 20 years, I've consumed over 30 books on the subject, and have practiced 3 variations of Feng Shui from 3 schools of thought in my many consultations. I have arrived at a practice that combines the Form School, Flying Star elements, and Black Hat, or Western Feng Shui. I utilize traditional Feng Shui principles, but use a Western perspective with respect to architecture, property layout, and land location. I've completed a gold level Feng Shui practitioners program and am a graduate and professional member of the International Feng Shui Guild. My expertise lies in achieving a balance of all areas in a retail or personal space while maintaining the aesthetic integrity in order to achieve the client's goals. -Melissa Leib.

red fu dogs

I love when I learn something new; today was no exception. My Feng Shui master and I were discussing different symbols used in Feng Shui and their efficacy. He mentioned Fu Dogs and their yin and Yang properties-even they are balanced. 


I never noticed this before, but one of the Fu dogs has a pup under her paw;  she is the female protecting her pup. The male dog has a globe under his paw, which signifies control over his domain. Together they are balanced and are said to protect a space in a balanced yin Yang way. 


Fu dogs are one of the items people use to protect their home. I suspect they’re  not very influential as a Feng Shui cure or element, but they are pretty cool! 


These are my Fu Dogs (above). They are red and they reside in the Southeast on either side of our double doors.
