Your Feng Shui Advice for November 2013
SHUI ADVICE

As wonderful as Thanksgiving is, it's not unusual for it send normally calm, cool, and collected people to the edge of anxiety as they worry too much about family harmony and moist meats.

Of course, Feng Shui has a solution to these potential concerns. Be sure to use yellow mums as your choice of floral decoration as you place them strategically throughout the house. These delightful flowers, along with other fresh-cut florals, will usher in tranquility and peace, while also bringing a handy dash of recognition and rewards for your efforts.

And if you're lucky enough to visit someone else's home this Thanksgiving, tote along a bouquet of fresh yellow mums to your kind host(s). You'll be presenting them with a heaping helping of harmony and happiness -- and that's truly something to be grateful for!

SHUI FASHION

With the holidays approaching, many of you will want to update your wardrobe as you look for something sensational to help you stand out from the crowd. To that end, Feng Shui suggests you seek out apparel items that are fashionable -- and more importantly, that you like, as opposed to what everyone else is wearing this season.

This Feng Shui wisdom says that if you stay true to yourself as you clothes-shop, you will attract positive energy by creating an open, clear space around you through your own individuality and uniqueness.

And although those aforementioned holidays are approaching, try to avoid wearing too much red this November and December. Red can sometimes not only be overstimulating to wear, but also a bit much for those around you to absorb -- so leave it to Santa and enjoy peaceful and harmonious holidays!

SHUI HEALTH

Fast forward to the day after Thanksgiving later this month: Did you eat too much turkey, or perhaps put a serious dent in the pumpkin pie all by yourself? If so, you may well regret it once indigestion rears its ugly, acidic head.

Slippery elm bark to the rescue! This wonder cure can neutralize acid, absorb gas, and generally help calm those jumpy digestive juices. Simply drop one teaspoon of slippery elm bark powder into a cup of boiled water, then drink it down slowly. It won't be long until you're feeling as good as new!

SHUI RECIPE

Pumpkins are said to be symbolic of fruitfulness, time, and the Mother Goddess. It's also believed that these giant orange gourds are money-magnets. So, why not have some pumpkin pie in a delicious effort to attract wealth?

Enjoy your just desserts!

3/4 cup of sugar
1/2 teaspoon of salt
1/2 teaspoon of ground ginger
1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon of ground nutmeg
1 teaspoon of all-purpose flour
2 eggs, beaten lightly
1 cup of evaporated milk
2 tablespoons of water
1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract
9-inch pie crust, uncooked

1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

2. Line a 9-inch pie plate with pastry.

3. In a bowl, combine pumpkin puree, sugar, salt, ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg, and flour. Add eggs, then mix until blended. Add evaporated milk, water, and vanilla, then mix further.

4. Pour mixture into pastry-lined plate. Bake at 425 degrees for 15 minutes; reduce heat to 350 degrees, then bake for an additional 35 minutes.

SHUI TRAVEL

One of Feng Shui's best ideas for returning home to a place of peace and prosperity after travels is to have flowers delivered to your home the same day as your arrival!

Indeed, having fresh flowers on hand upon your return will fill your home with a pleasant scent. Living spaces that remain dark too long tend to attract stale yin energies, but by placing florals in your home, you'll provide yourself with revitalizing natural and supportive yang energies!

SHUI RANDOM

According to Chinese legend, pear trees are able to bear fruit for up to 300 years. Due to this extraordinary longevity, pears are also believed to impart an almost-mystical life extension for humans.

Around the world, pears are treated with special reverence: Cows in Russia are protected with pear charms, while Greece even honored Athena as the mother of pear trees. In the United States, eating a pear on Thanksgiving Day is believed to bring good luck for up to one year.

Never mind those old Allman Brothers telling you to eat a peach. This Thanksgiving, eat a pear -- I guarantee you'll feel lucky!
