Your Feng Shui Advice for April 2013
SHUI ADVICE

Now that April is here, we are officially immersed in the season of rebirth and new beginnings.

The idea of new beginnings is traditionally symbolized in Feng Shui by young plants pushing their way up through fertile ground. However, Feng Shui also associates spring with the notion of family as well -- indeed, those who have given you your own beginning!

Naturally, then, this is the ideal time of year to honor your relations by refreshing family photos around your home. You'll not only bring fresh energies that will strengthen familial bonds, but you'll also intentionally share symbols that represent the most recent good times you've shared together.

This empowering exercise will make for good Feng Shui while bringing a harmonious and happy spring your way!

SHUI FASHION

This spring, instead of simply cleaning your closet and giving your used clothes away, why not create a pool of positive energy among your friends by having a Feng Shui fashion swap party? After all, recycling during the season of rebirth never goes of style ... and apart from that, it's simply a fun way to bring new items into your wardrobe collection without a new-item price tag attached!

So, contact your girlfriends and give them a few weeks to gather any gently used couture, as well as handbags, jewelry, and even shoes. Then, set a date to pass these memories from one friend to another.

Just remember to wave some sage or incense over everything you'll be parting with before you send them home with someone else. Doing so will purge your predecessor energies and allow the new recipient to spring into action with renewed (re)purpose!

SHUI HEALTH

Did you know that the stuffiness and dry cough you may attribute to springtime allergies could actually be caused by a few things you've been eating? It's true: Certain foods may contribute to the same misery-causing symptoms as those of ragweed-induced hay fever.

If you know for a fact that your hay fever is caused by ragweed, you'll want to avoid eating watermelon, cantaloupe, and honeydew for the time being, as well as zucchini or cucumber. Research shows that these particular fruits and vegetables possess almost identically similar allergy-producing proteins to ragweed.

In the unfortunate event you're suffering from hay fever this spring, steer clear of these foods for now ... because if you can do so, it's likely that clear is exactly how your nose and throat will feel!

1/4 cup of chicken or vegetable stock

Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

SHUI TRAVEL

If you'd like to make sure your young college student enjoys a fun and smooth spring break away from all that studying -- and if you want to make additionally sure they stay safe during their time off -- then any or all of the following Feng Shui travel protection cures will do the trick!

Firstly, download an image of the Feng Shui Mystic Knot, then place it somewhere inside your young adult's suitcase; putting it inside their wallet or purse will also work. Feng Shui gurus and masters have traditionally believed that, among other miraculous energies this symbol offers, an invisible cloak of protection accompanies this cure, making it the perfect protective travel companion.

Another option is to tie nine or 18 inches of red ribbon, string, or yarn to the handle of their suitcase. Doing so will not only make it easier for them to recognize their bag on the airport's luggage carousel, but it will also ensure that their belongings arrive at the same place and time they do!

Lastly, fortifying the "Travel" area of your student's bedroom will allow for healthy, positive energies to accompany them on their spring break adventure. Hanging a small metal wind chime in the right corner of their bedroom will work wonders ... while also allowing you to sleep more soundly at night.

These Feng Shui travel cures will give your own worries a break -- all while your student gets to take a well-deserved break of their own!

SHUI RANDOM

Consider the first items you see when you enter your home. Is it time to freshen up your entryway scene?

Perhaps you've been looking at the same things in that space all winter. Now, with spring-induced renewal all around, take this opportunity to put a fresh face on your foyer!

Start by clearing the clutter. Then, add seasonally appropriate accents -- maybe a brightly colored rug or even an orchid (or other fresh flowers) to brighten the area and lift your spirits every time you walk into your abode.

And who knows? Offering this area of your home new and wonderful energies during a season that promises the same could bring opportunity knocking!
