The Feng Shui Cure of “Words”

I know many people who have read my book
think it takes a lot of big stuff to add to your home to have good feng shui, but I’m here to tell you that it doesn’t! One of the nine traditional cures in feng shui are “symbols”…so words can make powerful feng shui cures.

Here are a couple of small items in my home that happen to mention the word “Miracle” on them. I, for some reason, am attracted to that word lately, and voila!— two gifts show up that have it written right on them! (I pay special attention when repeated patterns and items and words show up in my clients homes as well as mine!) I really like the one that states “Be realistic – expect a miracle” – so I placed it in the helpful people gua of my desk (you can kind of see it is between my helpful people box and a little angel symbol,) so I can see it all day long.

So, where’s your favorite hang out spot in your home? “Enhance it with your favorite “personal mantras!”

    Beautiful, I Like. Lately, I been saying, I need a miracle at work. Thank, I believe this was my missing link. In the silver box it goes.

    I really like your site and blog. Would love to find that “Be realistic…Expect a miracle” plaque/picture for my home as well. Currently take care of a friend with leukemia, my lab retriever with bladder cancer, and 5 “drop-off” cats whom all have various medical problems. Some days I need the reminder that miracles DO occur! Are you able to share where that picture came from, or where someone might purchase it?

      Unfortunately not. It was a gift, and it looks hand made.

    Karen, I see that some of your clients /fans are inquiring about handmade plaques with messaages like “EXPECT A MIRACLE” etc… I have just started a home- based business , making custom-made, handcrafted pottery and ceramics (functional and gift items for home and garden). If you or anyone is interested, please contact me.
