How to Sell in This New Environment
I’ve ordered my vlogging starter kit online. It was so easy, I picked it up from sitting in my car curbside. Way to adapt, Best Buy!
See my two tips for how to sell in this new environment we find ourselves in on my new vlog here:
Leib and Associates in October Issue of EnLIGHTenment Magazine!
Light and Fire
Light and Fire is an essential Feng Shui element. How do you know if your lights are good Feng Shui? It’s all about balance and placement, but some fixtures are more dominant in one or two elements and that will influence the space differently. Below is predominantly wood and a little metal. Light on is fire, and the wood feeds the fire-so this light is great in the Southeast or South. It is round too, with some metal, which is good in the West.
So confusing, right?
In this case, the wood and the fixtures function, Fire, feel predominant for me so I’d put this in the South or Southeast.
Pineapples are hot!
I’m seeing pineapples on shirts, sheets, pillows and in home decor.
The pineapple is a symbol of welcome for the home, and a nice element boost in Feng Shui.
The pineapple below is from my line, Hinkley Lighting, and is an element mix of metal (the frame) and water (the glass)and some fire from the lightbulbs. This light would be perfect for a front door in the West or Northwest.
It’s so perfect, I may need to put it by my front door located in the West.
This is art, this is light!
This art installation is from one of my manufacturers, PureEdge Lighting at a lighting show I recently attended in Chicago. I love it because it captures the essence of everything that we aspire to in Feng Shui.
Feng Shui is about movement, balance and balancing the flow of energy in a space, but relies on one’s own energy and drive to understand and accept one’s self and to thrive. And live. And dance through life. This is art, this is light!
Are Lights Feng Shui?
I get asked this a lot, being in the Lighting industry. The short answer is yes, Lighting is Feng Shui, sometimes good and sometimes bad.
Light equates to fire element, which is good in the south direction of your home. But most lights are made of metal, sometimes wood, sometimes crystal (represents water) sometimes ceramic (represents earth).
The best fixtures are often a mix and encompass several elements which are most auspicious in certain areas of the home. We will delve deeper into what is best in which part of the home in the coming weeks but here are some examples of lighting fixtures that are a good balance of elements to energize good chi in your home.
