Using Color to Change your World

Using color is not unlike creating a meal. First what are you hungry for? With color, how do you want to feel? Next buy the ingredients. Choose the color that you think supports what you want. Start to cook. Add too much of this, or listen to too many other cooks and what do you get? Yuk.  Ask too many friends what shade to use–or better yet look at Pittsburgh’s 1,700 colors and chances are you’ll miss the mark.  Nice thing about paint though, you can always paint over.  But check out what you’re doing with your local Feng Shui master, because there’s an art and a science to using color to produce the mood, the feeling, the harmony you want. And you won’t have to paint it over!

A film festival and Feng Shui

What could a film festival have to do with Feng Shui?  Well, where I live (Ashland, OR) the Festival is about independent films tending to focus heavily on documentaries. Documentaries are usually about things out of balance (think Sicko or Supersize Me!)  It gets a bit depressing when you start to realize how very very out of balance this society is, and the possible consequences we are inviting unless correcting steps are taken.  Feng Shui is about bringing things into balance.  And while I would never pretend that a Feng Shui practitioner could bring many of these larger issues into balance, it just shows me the importance of having one’s home, one’s family, one’s relationship in balance.  Without that?  Let the craziness take over.  Not good! And not necessary.  Do what you can, and what you can’t do, engage the best Fen Shui master you know.
