Feng Shui Tips to Activate Abundance

Spring – just the word brings on feelings of hope! Everything starts to come to life and bloom and excite. While people are always eager to to know how they can invite more abundance in to their lives, Spring is a time when we feel the need to kick-start the motor and get things going. So with Spring in full swing…

 

Five Feng Shui tips to Activate the flow of Abundance in your life:

  1. Clean! The idea of Spring Cleaning is to break off the crusty old layer of crud that’s gathered. Like a big stretch first thing in the morning, give everything in your home a good once-over so it can wake up and start fresh. Literally, touch everything and show it love!
  2. Fix! Items that are damaged do not give us the same refreshed and joyous feeling that they gave when they were whole. Wherever possible, fix or repair the damage and when necessary, allow these items to move on and move out of your space.
  3. De-Clutter! A big one in Feng Shui, and the reason being is that when you create space, you create flexility and room for growth. The big three in defining clutter are if it is: Unused, Unloved, or Unfinished
    1. Unfinished – projects that go unfinished create an energetic drag and keep you from devoting energy to more meaningful pursuits. Decide to finish the project or decide you’re not going to do it, either way, you’ll liberate more energy for abundance!
    2. Unused – everything in your space is sending conscious and unconscious messages (memories, reminders…) and so any items not being used will lead to overload and weigh down your energy and energy flowing through your life! I’m not saying you have to be a monk, but if you are truly not using something, send it off to someone that will. (try www.freecycle.org!)
    3. Unloved – some unused objects or damaged objects create such a stir of good happy feelings, whether for the memories they invoke, or what they represent, that there is good reason to keep them. But if you have something in your space that you don’t truly love, there is no reason to keep it it in your space! Give yourself permission to surround yourself with love!
  4. Add Light: Light is a powerful energizer, both natural and artificial. You can increase abundance in your life by increasing the light that shines in it!!! Simple ways to do so are to open the curtains and blinds, put lamps and other lights on auto settings so you come home to a lighted home, add full spectrum bulbs, and even have a night light that creates a warm glow in the evening.
  5. Inspiring Space: The first thing you see when you enter your home and the first thing you see when you wake up need to be things that inspire you and enliven you! Spring is a good time to change around the artwork and add fresh plants and flowers to a space so that upon entering, you feel energetically uplifted… and abundant!

Abundance is as much as state of mind as it is a part of life. Trigger the flow of abundance in your life today whether by grand gestures such as these tips or simply by experiencing the fullness of each breath!

Shannon S:

Bottom line: CALL AND BOOK AN APPOINTMENT WITH SALVATORE!!! He really is a gifted Feng Shui practitioner! Now, for the rest of the story.

I was in a transition in my life and was feeling very STUCK! A friend of mine recommended his Feng Shui consultant, so I gave her a call. Well, she never returned my call or responded to my emails. That’s when I turned to YELP.

I looked at a number of Feng Shui consultants, but I kept coming back to Salvatore’s page. I went to his website and watched his video on his website. I know it sounds cliche, but I really liked his energy and how he came across. So I contacted him. Am I glad I did!

He responded promptly to my request for more information with a brief, yet thorough explanation of his services which included energy clearing and a thorough analysis of my interior and exterior space. In addition he would make suggestions for enhancing the flow of energy and remedies for correcting negative situations. I booked an appointment.

He arrived at my apartment at the appointed time and after the initial exchange of greetings and introductions, he went right to work. First he evaluated the external energy flow of the exterior of my apartment, then on to the interior.

Initially he engaged me into a thoughtful inquiry as to my goals in life and where I was feeling stuck. Then using the Ba-Gua map, we went room by room and he made excellent suggestions including paint colors, and where to place plants, furniture, crystals and mirrors to indeed enhance the flow of energy in my home and my life! This process took about 2.5 hours

After our initial meeting, Salvatore made it clear that I could contact him at anytime to ask him some follow-up questions or run things by him. I did, and he always responded to my inquiries.

I couldn’t agree more with what a prior YELP reviewer said about Salvatore. He is indeed a “kind, intuitive, funny brilliant and compassionate man” and I too highly, highly HIGHLY recommend his services

Work Life Balance

Work Life Balance

Five principles to help you create the Work-Life Balance you want.

This year, I had to make my way back from burn-out. I was working too much and living too little. I set out to shift my life and came up with five principles of a Work-Life Balance. This Fall has become the season of “More Being and Less Doing”!

The Elusive “Work-Life Balance”

It is a stand-out goal for most, and yet, the concept of a work-life balance is still vague at best. Part of that is in it’s uniqueness to each individual, and part of that is the difficulty of quantifying what it means.

Secrets to Vision Boarding

Secrets to Vision Boarding

In 1992 I created a collage of images that inspired me. Immediately, things started shifting in my life that were inexplicably synched up to that collage, and the shifts continued unfolding for years. My accidental discovery of the art Vision Boarding sparked a thirst for just how it is that we can create and turn dreams into reality.

Having taught, written, and practiced Vision Boarding over the decades, I’ve learned secrets that separate successful vision boards from those that are just pretty images.
