Your Feng Shui Advice for March 2013
SHUI ADVICE

Do you want to have the "Luck o' the Irish" on your side, even though there's not a drop of green blood in your body?

Feng Shui suggests that possessing sharp networking skills is one of the most important fundamentals for achieving overall success across the board of life. This philosophy promises that once you increase and improve your networking opportunities, you'll also avail yourself to an almost obscene amount of support from important decision-makers and those in authority.

How to best use Feng Shui to take advantage of these opportunities? Start by locating the "helpful people" area of your main floor and/or office (the far front or lower right corner of your live/work space), then hang an eight-rod metal wind chime there. This Feng Shui cure is often called upon to activate magical mentor support, while also inviting windfall luck, divine blessings, and fortunate travels.

After all, you don't have to be Irish to enjoy offers of invaluable assistance from powerful people!

SHUI FASHION

In Feng Shui, green is the color most associated with renewal and rebirth, as well as health, healing, and fertility. And since green is also representative of our dear Mother Nature, it possesses a strong subconscious link that grounds our energies to the earth itself.

In a world where so many of us are "going green," it's good to remember that March has always had a special connection with this particular hue. In fact, once March 17 rolls around each year, it's difficult to find someone who hasn't donned the sartorial demeanor of verdant, lushly green Ireland!

During this month -- or any other, really -- wearing green will allow you to feel far more rooted. And healthier and happier, too!

SHUI HEALTH

You may be forgiven for thinking that all the pollen from blooming trees and growing grass is the primary cause of those allergies that are keeping you wheezing and sneezing this month. In reality, however, it might be a bunny bringing it on.

No, not the rabbit hopping around outside. I'm talking about the one whose ears you devoured before the rest of its body went the way of your tummy, too! That's right -- chocolate can cause the same sort of allergic reactions brought on by ragweed and pollen.

So, the next time you reach for the rabbit, make it a white one. Why? Because white chocolate doesn't contain theobromine, the substance in darker chocolates that provokes allergic reactions.

That's right, the white rabbit is much better. Just ask Alice!

SHUI RECIPE

There is no plant more eager to pull away the curtain of winter -- all while welcoming an early springtime -- than parsley.

Of course, I am drawn to this herb for its long association with the mystic arts. Even today, certain people in Mexico wear a sprig of parsley behind their ears in order to quickly cure a headache. There are also contemporary alchemists in New Orleans who promise that taking a parsley-accented bath will turn you into a money magnet!

And of course, the French and Italians alike believe that parsley elevates one's libido -- which explains why, once upon a Roman time, sprigs of parsley were tucked inside togas.

In any case, and for whatever reason, having this herb around is never a bad thing ... especially at this parsley-plentiful time of year!

2 cups of vegetable stock
2 cups of fresh, finely chopped parsley
3 whole cloves of garlic
2 tablespoons of crushed sesame seeds
1/4 teaspoon of chili powder
1/4 teaspoon of dried thyme
4 teaspoons of flour
2 cups of skim milk
4 tablespoons of fresh, grated Parmesan cheese
Salt and pepper to taste

1. Heat oil in two-quart saucepan, then add parsley, garlic, sesame seeds, and chili powder. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly until the garlic is clear.

2. Add thyme and flour, stirring continuously until soup is well-blended and slightly thickened. Stir in milk. Reduce heat so soup does not boil.

3. Pour into serving bowls and garnish with salt and pepper to taste. Add grated cheese and serve. Enjoy!

SHUI TRAVEL

Will you be traveling for work this month? If so, I offer the following cheat sheet of simple, but historically effective Feng Shui travel tips to ensure your business trips will bring professional success -- all while tapping into the personal pleasure principle!

If you'll be traveling north, scoop a mound of earth before you depart and gently toss it northward.

If you'll be traveling east, ring a bell six or seven times as you face an easterly direction.

If you'll be traveling south, drink a large glass of water before leaving home. Alternatively, you can also wash your hands and feet, or -- ideally -- take a full body shower.

And if you'll be traveling west, light a red candle (or even some incense) and point it in a westerly direction.

These methods have long been believed to overcome any afflictions that may arise during travel, while also showering you with fortune and luck.

Next month, I'll share a similar cheat sheet of how to best prepare for trips taking you in northeast, northwest, southeast, or southeast directions.

But for now, happy -- and lucky! -- trails to you!

SHUI RANDOM

New scientific research confirms that even though we lose brain cells as we age -- approximately one per second -- these cells are not only replaceable, but can even increase due to a process called "neurogenesis."

Some reports even demonstrate that several thousand new nerve cells are birthed every day in the hippocampus, the part of the human brain that houses short-term memory.

How to best actively promote the birth of these new cells? Try learning new things, taking risks, and, of course, maintaining a healthy lifestyle.

And as spring approaches -- a season filled with, and fueled by, all things new -- why not try something you've never done before? Your brain will thank you for it ... and you'll actually remember all that gratitude, too!
