I am wishing that the Summer Solstice has brought you warm
blessings so far. Here in the Pacific Northwest we have been given days of cozy rain
and then bursts of delicious sunshine. My little garden this year is loving all
the nurturing the universe is providing and I as well honor the yin and yang
weather by getting out into nature and by eating local foods as much as possible.
What are your plans for summer? Vacation, working in
the yard, home repair? During my daily
walks I witness people loading up their travel trailers and yards beginning to
be meticulously groomed. Recently I was enjoying watching the daily progress of
a neighbor’s house painting adventures when I got caught up in the connection between people’s
houses numbers, the colors they choose, and the Bagua (life energy map in Feng
Shui). You see each section of the Bagua has a certain number, color,
element, and life energy which can guide us to living a more harmonious life.
Once I started calculating local neighborhood house numbers
then connecting that number with the Bagua it was fun to see how when
the numbers were a match, the Chi of the home seemed to be beaming. For example
a house number that equaled # 1, the Bagua area is Career
& Journey the home was painted a
pastel blue and white, was in bad repair, and the Chi was desperately depleted.
I marvel at the idea of the same home with a fresh paint job in chocolate-brown.
Another house had the liveliest place and their number was # 9, the Bagua area
is Fame & Reputation. This home was painted a beautiful deep brick red tone,
the color that hosts this area of the Bagua, the yard was stunning with birds
hoping all about; I bet their reputation is just as impeccable.
So do you possibly have an exterior summer-house painting party
going on at your place soon? Having trouble deciding on a color or even how to
begin to choose a color? Why not use a little Feng Shui magic to guide you. If
interested in finding out your homes personal color send me an email( firstname.lastname@example.org ) with your
house number only and I will send you the corresponding color/colors as my gift.
Wishing you the most savory season of long days and warmer
nights to drink in all the abundance of each moment. Good Fortune~ S.G.
