Much Ado About the Ashes

After the loss of our spectacular Earth Dog, Mandy, last week, the subject of Feng Shui and cremated pets weighs fresh in my mind; what to do with the ashes?

There are many schools of thought on this-the ashes are yin and you should scatter them outside and release the pet’s energy. You should place them in a prominent position in Family (the Eastern area). You should store them in a separate structure.

What to do? I think you should do with them what feels correct for you, with a few caveats:

Do not store cremated pets under your bed and do not put them where you eat and/or cook. Common sense advice, but it is my experience that the Feng Shui of these beloved pets is based on our feelings and not necessarily where they reside after they have passed. The East/Family Elders is usually a good place to add a photo.

Good fortune.
