It often feels like we’re being hit by a tidal wave – of climate disasters, economic woes, scandals. And in my personal life, more and more keeps knocking at the door, saying “Look at me! Pay attention.” More and more things grabbing for my attention and time. I don’t know about you, but I notice how this slows me down, gets me confused too often, and leads to unintended and unwelcome consequences. Part of the project I’m working on is a system allowing you to lose weight. Not the extra pounds you may be carrying, but the extra weight of too much of everything. The success of the program is extraordinary. But I’m not unveiling it until it’s fit and ready.
The latest group of friends who took the plunge and started getting a real handle on their over crowded lives. We met for the last time yesterday. Two could not be there due to personal emergencies, but I think you can tell from the expressions the class was a success. Soon I will announce a new class, RECLAIM YOUR LIFE, where we will come to understand why we gather too much and how to be permanently rid of that little barnacle that costs money, time, health and happiness. Stay tuned! If you’d like to be in on it, let me know and whether you’d enjoy a teleclass (if you’re out of the Rogue Valley.) If you have questions, contact me at info@Creative-Visions.co
A few lights seem to be coming on in the business world. The icon of great office furniture, Herman Miller, is starting to realize that the cubicle, a design pioneered by Miller, tends to isolate and objectify workers. A small movement (may it grow and grow quickly) is happening, a movement to get a more natural relationship for people who work together. Tres Birds Workshop was commissioned to concept, design and build an art installation in Downtown Denver. The purpose? To encourage people get out of their offices for daily fresh air breaks. “We highly recommend it. It’s wonderful to see that more people are realizing the more we make workers feel like they are filed in storage lockers, and then free them into collaborative relationships, the more we can create harmony and productivity.” All the vegetation used in the installation was reused and/or recycled afterwards – including the furniture!
Another forward thinker is proudcing a movie “Three Walls” about just how wrong boxing people into cubicles is. You can watch a preview at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e4qMtBTeLs0
Where did Feng Shui orginate? Observing the ways of Nature. Hmmmm.
What a curious situation! – a story I did not understand for years. Now I’m going to feature it in my next newsletter: The Curious Case of the Color Blind Feng Shui Master. How it came about and what reality is are two very different situations – incongruous to say the least. If you’d like to follow along and are not a subscriber already, I recommend you click the link to the right and subscribe. The issue will be published in early July.
A client approached me to revitalize and change the energy and look of a dry cleaning establishment. I did so and this location turned into the gold mine that kept the business afloat during the economic downturn. The sad part is the owner started losing interest, wanting to move on,and in so doing started forgetting the details – the details not associated with dry cleaning. People are now talking, and business is declining. He wants to sell, but the price he can get is decreasing as well. I’m going to do a case study on this business in the June/July issue of the newsletter. God is in the details, and you’ll have graphic proof of how important those details are.
I’m often surprised at how hip Costco can be. They have surprised me more than once by being on top of clutter clearing tips. Now, from Novia Scotia comes a timely article on why car clutter is dangerous to your health. Take a gander: http://tinyurl.com/carclut Send this to friends who can use the this! Or follow me on Twitter @sugeet And, as if you didn’t already know, clutter is the biggest obstruction to the good flow of chi. 😎
If you live in an area with a Chinese community, chances are they will be celebrating this weekend as the Year of the Rabbit takes over from the Year of the Tiger. Try to attend these celebrations and observe that everything being done has some symbolic meaning. These don’t always translate well into our Western culture, but they may help you understand the rich complexity of this ancient culture. And perhaps, in your own heart, welcome the Year of the Rabbit – it bodes well for those of us who align our spirit with the wonderful Rabbit.
Well, not quite. Next in the 12 year Chinese cycle is the Year of the Rabbit beginning February 3, 2011. And while it portends many positive changes, many of the Year of the Tiger’s bumps and hiccups will continue. As we see the megabanks and multinational corporations having a deliciously profitable year, many small folk could use a healthy dose of the positive chi Feng Shui offers. I know I’m bragging when I say every business I’ve helped has seen an increase in its bottom line. Expanding from that, you may want to consider, at minimum, a cleanup of the Chi at your business. At maximum, consider an analysis and recommendation by a feng shui master. It’s money well spent. I’d be glad to put you in touch with some of my clients if you need to hear it directly from them. Otherwise, check out the “Clients” section of this blog. And may your holiday season brings all the abundance and prosperity you could wish for.
OK all – in my eZine I’ve spoken of a California trend to “feng shui your hair” – how California is That? But now a local TV station has done a feature about it. Take a look – I leave the conclusion up to you. If it works for you, great. If not….then again, much of what he has to say is right on Feng Shui wise!
I am a big fan of The Huffington Post. Guess that lets you know where my political proclivities are. In any event, when this article appeared today I checked it out. And while I don’t agree with all the reccomendations, I think it’s a worthwhile read and you might pick up something worth trying. In these dificult times, I’m all for increasing anyone’s prosperity in every dimension possible.
