Feng Shui for the Outdoors...from the International Feng Shui Guild
We know Feng Shui is a big deal at your front door...but it actually starts well before that: at the curb. Your whole property encompasses your energy and your Feng Shui. It's the true essence of curb appeal. Professional Feng Shui consultants can help you look at the Feng Shui of your property as well as your home. What if you don't live in a detached house? Does Feng Shui outdoors really count for you? Definitely. In an apartment or condo, we often look at the Feng Shui of your unit, but also that of the entire building - similarly to when we look at your personal office in a larger building. Feng Shui and the outdoors is for everyone.

This month's newsletter, we are highlighting authors who share their thoughts on how nature and the world outdoors can enhance your life, boost your energy, and lift neighborhood chi. No matter the season or where you are in the world, we have something for you. Scroll down and get outdoors...
“Everybody needs beauty as well as bread, places to play in and pray in, where nature may heal and give strength to body and soul.”
~~ John Muir
Find a Natural "Power Spot" in your Yard
From Maureen Calamia, "I have been dowsing for several years now in my work as a feng shui consultant. I help my clients find and remedy negative energy in the Earth to promote better healing and health.

"Recently, my attention was directed to the other side of the spectrum – power spots. Power spots are places for great healing and meditation. They are places of sanctuary and respite from the stresses of modern life."
Ooh, we really love this idea...bring on the positive.
Neighbourhood Chi
From Emily J. Rooney, "A significant part of the assessment is in the journey to the location, because this provides great insight into the quality of the chi (energy) that is making it's way to the property. There is so much to consider - the surrounding environment and scenery, the quality of the care taken on surrounding properties, nearby signs and symbols along the way, is it an easy journey to get there, is it an arduous journey or does the trip have a sense of flow, it is easy to park and to find/arrive at the front door of the dwelling.
Like we said in our intro - so much more to the Feng Shui of a home or space. Location - location - location.
QUICK TIP for changing seasons: De-clutter your closets and switch over the contents

"A good closet cleaning helps you see your wardrobe for the season. Every season, you find something to donate. Something you have outgrown, something that is out of style, something that just feels over-worn. Yes, you will always have some core basic items that you want to keep. And, you may discover something new or trendy that you would like to add. By clearing out the clutter, you can quickly see what is right just for the moment and what is out-dated. Be sure to check all the pockets, maybe you will stumble upon an extra $20 that you forgot about! Wouldn’t that be a delightful surprise?"

This Feng Shui is for the Birds
From Alisa Rose Seidlitz, "You’ve probably heard that for good Feng Shui it is essential to get clutter cleared away, yes? Keeping clutter around usually drags us down. So you may be surprised to learn that sometimes, in some places, keeping “clutter” is literally essential for sustaining LIFE. Keeping it in our gardens and for the birds, that is!

"As the seasons change, birds are migrating and clean-up is in full swing in the garden. However, did you know that leaving some clutter, some ‘mess’, greatly helps the birds?"
Alisa Rose shares her tips on making your outdoor spaces Feng Shui and nature friendly.

Q: What is your branch of Feng Shui? How have you made it your own?
Vicky: I love all aspects of Feng Shui and I would say that most of my clients come to me because of the earth energy work I do with their homes and the land. I dowse and work with the elementals, the etheric world, and the spirit of place. I dowse remotely and am shown the site of the home/office, the portal energies, circles in the carpets, tree branches that hug each other, before I even arrive at the home/office.
