Feng Shui Friday


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.

We love them, I love them-we wish they could last forever, like my bridal bouquet and Tom’s boutonnière. Thank you, Dyana Zweng at A Bit of Earth Flowers – you are a true artist!

I used to think that dying flowers were bad Feng Shui as they represent death, but in my deeper dive into Classical Feng Shui,  I’ve learned flowers are fine in any state as long as they mean something to you. They do not affect chi in a negative way inside the home. They don’t have to be in any particular area or not, anywhere you enjoy them is fine, regardless of their color. 

That’s not to say you should sit surrounded by dead flowers, but that is their cycle, and to be reborn again the next season. 
So fill your home and fill your life with them and rest assured, they are Feng Shui sanctioned.
