Staying Safe With Feng Shui

Feng Shui suggestions take great consideration in honoring the energy of protection and safety for your home and office. You can use colors, symbols, positive quotes or affirmations, prayers and really any object that you personally resonate with. 


  • Hang from inside your front door on the door knob, bells. This alerts you to who is coming and going from your home even when you can’t see the door way.


  • Arranging furniture in the commanding position represents you taking charge of your space and life.


  • Putting on display statues or images of icons that you feel offer protection to your home is another wonderful tool to utilize. I personally like Arch Angel Michael and Mother Mary teamed up with Buddha. 


  • You can also reference animals that you feel create a safe feeling within you home. My favorite is Foo-dogs. You can place them near your front entrance or if need be, back entrance to protect and keep away negative influences. 

I happen to have my very own real life Foo-Dog, Skylar!

Very interesting and fun ways to apply protection to our daily lives. Odd that some of the practices are just plain common sense...I am referring to the door bells inside the front door.

Laura, Skylar is precious! I'm going to change the location of my Foo-Dogs based on this information.
