Your Feng Shui Advice for June 2013
SHUI ADVICE

Rice used to be commonly tossed at newlyweds as a wish for fertility. These days, however, with speculation that uncooked rice kills birds who eat it after the revelry has moved on, this grain-tossing tradition has largely passed.

As a replacement for throwing rice at the happy couple, Feng Shui suggests the following methods of symbolic well-wishing:

- Toss birdseed, believed to infuse a marriage with comfort and nourishment.

- Blow bubbles, as their soft and watery nature imparts peace and healthy flow.

- Toss flower petals, for their tree energy is believed to bring growth.

So, the next time you attend a wedding, be sure to make your mark by showering the newly married couple with your good wishes -- and any of the above ideas!

SHUI FASHION

In keeping with my June wedding theme spread across a few of this month's tips, I'll share some brief and simple Feng Shui advice around the Western tradition of wearing "something old, something new, something borrowed, and something blue."

This philosophy warns that you should be very careful about borrowing clothing items from certain people. Specifically, only ever accept a clothes loan from someone who enjoys a wonderful and loving relationship with herself or himself. After all, such energies usually carry through to one's own wardrobe!

SHUI HEALTH

June: a month that brings to mind weddings, exams, graduations, and the search for summer jobs. And what do each of the aforementioned share in common? Anxiety!

If any of these experiences apply to you this month, try the following anti-anxiety exercise that will allow you to feel calm, cool, and collected -- no matter the occasion!

Begin by standing squarely in front of a wall with your elbows slightly bent. Move your right foot about a step in front of your left foot as you bend both legs ever so slightly, then push really hard against the wall. As you do, you'll flex the muscles in your diaphragm that will then bid your butterflies adieu, all helping you breathe more easily!

Of course, a good magnesium supplement can help quell jumpy nerves, as can a 20-minute soak in an Epsom salt bath -- simply add two cups of Epsom salt as you fill the tub.

SHUI RECIPE

Ah, the beautiful rose -- the centerpiece of the June garden! According to many traditions, the rose represents healing, luck, protection, psychic powers, and, of course, everlasting love.

When added to salads or used as an ingredient in any recipe, roses infuse food with the above qualities, all while attracting more of the same into your own life!

ROSE VINEGAR
(Makes 1 1/2 cups)

Add petals from five pink or yellow roses to vinegar in a jar, then cover tightly. Allow to steep in direct sun for at least three hours. Strain, then store tightly covered in a glass container.

SHUI TRAVEL

The mortarboards have been tossed high into the air. The ink on the diplomas has dried. The post-graduation barbecue has taken place.

Now it's time for your graduate to get a job. And perhaps they'll heed the advice of New York Tribune editor Horace Greeley, whose famous 19th century axiom was "Go west, young man...."

So, if your grad plans to head that way for work, Feng Shui suggests that, for a comfortable and challenge-free trip, you should have them burn three pieces of incense, held in a westerly direction for a few minutes before departing.

Or you can simply offer them the sage advice given to another graduate once upon a cinematic time: "Plastics."

SHUI RANDOM

Since June 20's Summer Solstice heralds the start of another season, what better time to take a look at a spiritual helper who's particularly active this time of year?

The name of Archangel Uriel -- the archangel of summer -- means "the Light of God," so it's believed you should invoke his intercession when you need a burst of inspiration, bright ideas, or illumination. This, of course, is why students often call upon Uriel for help with final exams each June!

Even if you're just looking for a little peace of mind, ask Archangel Uriel to bestow some upon you -- then see how quickly you return to a sunnier mood and uplifted spirit!
