Light my Fire Personality

Flame, my Crested Eyelash Gecko was doing  in his  today!Harmonizing the Fire Element in You!

In an effort to understand and work with the energies of life, Feng Shui seeks to create harmony among the five elements: Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal and Water. The Chinese Five Element Theory assists us in organizing our experiences as they relate to these elements. Awareness of what element is most active in our bodies and our spaces during any given situation allows us to understand our own motivation and actions. And it assists in our balancing excess and deficiencies to create the movement we desire in life.

The Feng Shui Fire Personality

Fire adds excitement, fullness and warmth that enables us to open up, expand, express and be the full expression of our soul. Fire is a transformative element, fusing and converting all other forms of life and substance into one magnificent flame. With such power, the fire element develops one’s compassion as the ability to recognize the worthiness of others’ characteristics and feel love. Fire brings light and with it, great insights.

Fire feeds the earth element, the power to nurture and protect. After fire pushes one towards expression, exposing and laying bare one’s true self, and igniting the possibility of love, the natural desire is to experience nurturing, safety and enclosure. When we are called upon individually or as a society to care for others, we can add the fire element and ignite compassion and love.

The fire element is fed by the wood element, or the energy that enables us to push forward and past boundaries to reach towards expression. In an effort to express ourselves authentically, we can to add the element of wood and gain a sense of personal power and individual strength.

Excess & Deficiencies

If a person is acting from a place of high-fire energy they can lose their sense of self, so caught up in the act of expansion, they consume anything and everything. This is the pleasure seeker who simply cannot get enough to satisfy, seeking greater stimulation and wider variety of experiences. Often operating from a fear of isolation, they flicker above the surface without going to deep into experiences, failing to incorporate life’s lessons fully.

A person acting from a place of low-fire energy can appear physically cold and pale, as if unable to sustain their own body heat. These people will be naturally withdrawn, trapped in a cycle of self-doubt from their intuition being dimmed. Stuck in a feeling of joylessness, their inability to feel compassion, and to empathize, further feeds their isolation.

Balanced Fire Energy

When the fire energy is balanced in a person’s personality, they are motivated, engaged and easily relate to others. Fire-balanced people are able to laugh heartily.  Optimists and compassionate individuals, these individuals are aware of others, of feelings and of their own unique offerings in life and express themselves beautifully, effortlessly and authentically.

Salvatore is the BEST!  Warm, inspiring, professional, joyous, deeply perceptive, empowering, systematic, and thorough.

He is incredibly well-versed in Feng Shui, yet boils it down and communicates it in such a simple and clarifying way, that left my fiance Kelly and I empowered to build on his amazingly helpful recommendations for a long time to come.

Salvatore’s approach starts from the inside-out.  Before making a single recommendation to us about what to do with our apartment, he intently listened as we shared with him about who we are, our story, and our most cherished values, intentions, and goals, both individually and as a couple.  Out of that, we systematically looked together at every part of our house, and he gave us a very comprehensive assessment and recommendations, BUT in a way that was completely manageable and empowering!

I have a sense we’ll be working with Salvatore for years to come!

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.
