2012: Wishing you helpful friends who find their way to your heart

Feng Shui TuinLately I was looking into the wisdom of the Tao and searching some numbers and meanings. My eye was drawn towards ‘Wu wei’, the spirit of letting things happen the way they happen, being in the flow of what is and leaving it undisturbed.
Thinking of the beauty of this concept gives me a strong sense of wholeness and connection. We all contribute with our talents, our passions and our relationships. They develop over time just as they need to. Sometimes it is easy, at other times it is breathtakingly exciting and sometimes it is just tough to cope with. Cosmic consciousness. Everything is energy!

Wu wei
I feel that, when I contemplate and watch the cycle of my nature, my life develops in a certain and amazing way. Storms pass, cheers and sunshine arrive and go, sorrow weakens and joy is nearby. At some point the sky always clears and the enormous waves sooth down to a bright mirror that reflects just love and peace.
Happiness arrives in a cheerful mind, awesome as sunshine in a clear blue sky. Turning the wheel might not be easy. I feel very responsible for the words I use.
Being a passionate person with a distinct view of the world is often quite something for me and my environment to deal with. Being versatile and creative might look to them as chaotic and unfocussed. I am enthusiastic about communication, Feng Shui, gardens, spirituality and growth. I need to share and write about it. I plant many seeds, nurture, grow and persist, thrive and blossom, bear fruit and gain insights, let go and co-create a new cycle again. I can only be me!

Passion is like Yin and Yang. They need each other and work well together. Yin and Yang are one but each include a different appearance that cannot be disregarded. I always advocate that sunshine has a dark side, that joy makes you smile and grief makes you cry, that anger and love are united emotions. I don’t just live in a happy world, the dark side also has to find the light. Trust and courage is needed to overcome fears and create new beginnings day after day.

2012 is a 6-metal year
Helpful friends and travel belong to this area in the bagua. I gather that we need proper connections in our souls and hearts. Intimate relationships and encouraging friendships to make our lives work. It is not just about fun, it is about authentic involvement, development of opportunities, being aware of beauty, leaving untouched space undisturbed, making proper choices, transformation and most of all sending nature love. Big words but doable! Wu wei!

Feng Shui in your garden means joy, inspiration and energy

Feng Shui is de energiestroom van levenA garden has so many aspects that will bring you joy, happiness, color, life and an abundant sense of nature and wealth. You can create all these good influences and it is relatively easy too. Just begin and make a plan. You will love the result.
I recommend following the workshop ‘Plant een tuin’. You will learn the strategy, find recognition and get courage to create your way in your garden.

How to create your joyful garden: 

  • Start with the measurements of your garden and make a scaled drawing.
  • Mark windows, gates and entrances on your drawing.
  • Walk through your garden and define the spaces where you love to sit, work, look at plants, find your pond or shelter your tools.
  • Create a space to enjoy the sunshine, find a spot where natural shade exists or can be made. Use your imagination and get thrilled by the idea of enjoying the garden of your dreams.
  • Make a scrapbook.
  • Use the bagua to find the areas of wisdom, courage, health, wealth, creativity, partnership, friends and fame. The bagua is available on my Feng Shui website.
  • Look at your drawing and imagine what the areas should look like and how they would bring you pleasure.
  • Find the colors, shapes and textures that match.
  • Look at plants (perennials, shrubs and trees) to complete and decorate your plan. Plants provide natural energy and inspiration. Choose plants that suit your garden soil and circumstances.

Enjoy your garden in every season
Your garden is your natural environment where you experience the seasons and it is meant to enhance your life and well-being. Have fun and don’t hesitate to ask questions. Especially choosing the plants might be difficult. Find the combinations that work well together in providing beauty throughout the year.

You might want to follow the Workshop ‘Plant een tuin’.
Plant a garden! is a workshop in Dutch but I will gladly speak English with you.

Send me an e-mail when you’re triggered and excited about creating your Feng Shui garden and we will arrange the workshop  in your area or at your home. Please provide your name, location and preferred days.
