Small Bite: Worried About Keeping Your Job?

Feng SHui SB SmallBites pink

Worried About Keeping Your job?

As you begin this new year, it is important to develop the ability to remain relaxed and open despite any situation that may cause you to worry. The ability to create a strong center will increase your good luck throughout the year.
If you are worried about becoming unemployed, please consider this cure as one option for reducing your worry and remaining on the job.
Materials Needed:
  • One Yu bowl (Black will work well for this cure, but any color will work especially if the Yu has Professor’s charms inside and out.)
Note: This shape is important. It represents the ability to hold whatever comes to your door and remain stable and secure. The size of the bowl is secondary.
  • 9 small round or oval pebbles
  • Water to fill the bowl 70 to 80% of full
 Optional:
  • A small, living, green cutting
 Procedure:
  • Place the Yu on your office desk.
  • Place the pebbles inside.
  • Fill the bowl 70 to 80% full of water and expose it to the sky for just a few minutes.
 It is OK if the sky is overcast. The clouds, mist, or fog will not diminish the exposure to the sky.
For emphasis, add a green cutting to the bowl.
  • Every day, for 8 more days, change the water and expose the bowl and the new water to the sky. (The pebbles remain in the bowl for the entire 9 days.)
  • Return the bowl to the desktop each day. For emphasis, place it in the Helpful People gua (right front) of the desk. Visualize that you have helpful people supporting your career.
  • After the 9 days, leave the bowl on the desk and change the water as needed.
 An Added Dimension:
  • Place a convex mirror in Career of the bedroom.
  • For added emphasis, place a convex mirror in Career of the office or study.
  • And, place a convex mirror in Career of the entire house.
Good Luck in 2019!

Small Bite: Worried About Someone?

Feng SHui SB SmallBites pink

Worried About Someone?
As you begin this new year, it is important to develop the ability to remain relaxed and open despite any situation that may cause you to worry. The ability to create a strong center will increase your good luck throughout the year.
If you are worried about someone’s welfare, you can use this cure to calm your mind and help the other person. You may have been inspired to worry by an injury to your little finger, knowing that it can mean trouble for one of your children. You may feel that your grandmother needs some loving care, or your sister needs some strength to move through a difficult career transition. Using this cure, you can hold the person in your heart and mind, seeing him or her well, strong, safe, and protected. You are binding auspicious chi to the person, and making a connection that may bring comfort for a lifetime.
Materials:
  • Red ribbon (or thread) 6, 9, or 18 inches in length
  • Scissors
Procedure:
  • Place the ribbon under your mattress for 9 nights.
  • The morning after the 9th night, cut the ribbon in half.
  • Give one half to the person about whom you are worried.
You may mail it to them if necessary, and tell them what you are doing.
However, the other person does not have to know about the cure. You can sew the ribbon into a piece of clothing that you send as a gift, or simply wrap the gift with the ribbon. But, be careful. Your intention must be pure if you make this decision without notifying the other person.
The person must simply accept the ribbon (even if he or she does not know about the cure). If the person does know and is willing to participate, he or she may place the ribbon under the pillow or mattress, or carry it all the time.
  • Place the second half of the ribbon either under your pillow or mattress, or carry it with you all the time.
  • Reinforce with the Three Secrets Reinforcement (body, mind, speech).
  • If you feel a moment of worry, take the ribbon out and wrap it around your finger – the one associated with the person about whom you are concerned. For instance:
If you are worried about your child who is away at school, wrap the ribbon around your little finger. Loosen it, and wrap it again around the little finger. Do this for a total of 9 times. Visualize your child safe and well.
If you are worried about your husband, wrap the ribbon around your ring finger, then loosen and wrap it 8 more times for a total of 9 times. Visualize him safe and well, and perhaps thinking of you.!!
If you are worried about your mother, wrap the ribbon around your thumb, and repeat the process outlined above.
Reinforce with the Three Secrets Reinforcement once again.
Good Luck in 2019!

Small Bite: Restoring Wood’s Grace During the Holiday Season Part 5

Feng SHui SB SmallBites pink

Restoring Wood’s Grace 
During the Holiday Season
Part 5
Each of the Chinese five elements is a style of being in the world – an expression of experience and expression. Every person embodies each of the elements – Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal, and Water. Yet, when action is demanded, it is our Wood element that kicks into gear. During the holiday season we are moving as fast as we can. When our usual style is challenged by the pressures of work, family, and the rush of the season, we can easily lose our balance as the extremes of Wood take over.
Usually motivated, resourceful, self-confident and optimistic, and capable of tremendous power, the tendency of Wood under pressure is to keep pushing forward – overdoing and over performing. Instead of backing off, we stay occupied with a vengeance. We may become impatient, hasty, and even reckless. Frustration is common. Tired, we become nervous, irritable, and even angry. At the other extreme, our love of getting things done turns into paralysis, and we may sink into a suffocating depression. Either way, our usual elegance is lost.
During this busy holiday season, we can create both inner and outer environments that encourage our Wood personality to stay balanced and flexible -to gracefully regulate unrelenting intensity, and to retreat when necessary.
Here is our fifth suggestion to help you re-establish Wood’s skillful, inventive, curious, and fearless grace.
Whether moving too fast or too slow:
Take some time every night before going to bed to think about things you normally don’t think about; adventures, discoveries, art, stories, etc. Think about the exciting things you have pushed aside because of your busy schedule. Have some fun thinking. Erase the worry at this important time before bed. You will awake refreshed and ready to go-full of a sense of adventure and enthusiasm.
Congratulations.
You have reestablished Wood’s skillful, inventive, curious, and fearless

HIGHLIGHTS of the call:

  • We will begin each call with a bit of review, and try to end our calls with a quick review. If you have anything for us to consider as part of a review, let us know. This week we covered the following:

We stepped back to discuss Amanda’s question from last week about the possibility of a missing piece on an upper floor. Watch the slides!

We took a look back at the meaning of a building that partially overhangs water (and how it is different from a building that sits on an overhang of rock. The cures are available here and in the Case File about architecture.

  • We spent most of our time discussing the trigrams Mountain and Lake. Listen in and, then, find a new name for each trigram according to your own experience. Katherine offered quite a few suggestions to make this easy. Bring your new names to our next call on January 8, 2019.

  • Look to the Ten Recitation Method as you enter the new year. Katherine explained why, and outlined the procedure for the morning and evening procedure of the variation to the method.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!This Week’s REMINDERS:

Here is our fourth set of suggestions to help you re-establish Wood’s skillful, inventive, curious, and fearless grace.

If your tendency is to withdraw under pressure, and you find yourself hiding under the covers unable to cope:

Peel an orange. The essence of orange is a powerful force to change your mood.
Raid your closet to find something Kelly green, apple green, or reddish purple. You will lift your spirits even if you wear it back to bed.
Clean up any disarray at the front door and you will organize your thinking making it easier to take at least one important step forward. It will also encourage friends to magically appear, bringing friendship and laughter. While they are with you, ask them to help you do the following:
Place 9 small potted plants into the bedroom (or any room where you spend a lot of time). You are adding vitality and the impetus to move forward. If this is the one thing you do today, tomorrow will be brighter.

HIGHLIGHTS of the call:

  • We will begin each call with a bit of review, and try to end our calls with a quick review. If you have anything for us to consider as part of a review, let us know. This week we covered the following:

Katherine outlined the meditation Five Thunders Protectors Meditation. At the end of the conversation she outlined the Addendum to the Five Thunders – a nuance from Professor.

Katherine read an excerpt from Poemcrazy – #44. All this was inspired by Professor’s comment that “gua” does not have a good translation into English. He did say that “image” might be the best word he could think of. This piece is about the “image angels.” We also received more information about the number 44 – karma, reevaluation, and opportunity (from Numerology and the Divine Triangle). This is also the number that inspired the Storyboard more than 5 years ago.

As part of our continuing conversation, we also looked at the meaning of Hexagram 44. Lots to learn here about both danger and opportunity.

  • There are slides, don’t miss them!

  • Katherine will now be moving between Kenwood and San Francisco every week. She is working to set up a great internet connection in SF, and will continue to keep up with the daily questions. It may take a bit longer than usual.

Restoring Wood’s Grace 
During the Holiday Season
Part 3
Each of the Chinese five elements is a style of being in the world – an expression of experience and expression. Every person embodies each of the elements – Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal, and Water. Yet, when action is demanded, it is our Wood element that kicks into gear. During the holiday season we are moving as fast as we can. When our usual style is challenged by the pressures of work, family, and the rush of the season, we can easily lose our balance as the extremes of Wood take over.

Here is our third suggestion to help you re-establish Wood’s skillful, inventive, curious, and fearless grace.

If you become unsettled, unfocused, and out of sorts (even erratic):

            Prepare a warm bowl of soup and follow the instructions below:
–       Eat from your soup (or rice) bowl, and then rinse it a little bit.
–       Now, fill the bowl about 80 percent full of water.
–       Take the bowl, filled with water, outside under the open sky. There does not have to be sunlight. It can even be nighttime.
–       Return to the house carrying the bowl with the water. Set it down. The movement will have created ripples on the surface of the water.
–       Focus your eyes upon the ripples until the water becomes still. Your mind will become calm.
–       Now, repeat the procedure beginning by lightly rinsing the bowl once again. You do not need to eat again. Complete all the steps that come after.
–       Repeat for a total of 9 times. Even if you feel settled after one time, continue. Your newly discovered sense of calm may just stick around well into the new year.
