Hi Adorina! Here is your Daily Feng Shui Tip for Wednesday, May 19
Someone needs to tell my teenager and his friends that today is 'No Dirty Dishes Day' so that we can all co-exist like happy little clams under the same roof. In fact, according to Feng Shui, the kitchen should be kept spic and span since it's so heavily associated with health, happiness and abundance. The secret side of Feng Shui maintains that the flow of energy through your kitchen actually affects the negative or positive life force energy that comes from the food you eat. According to this Chinese energy theory, the amount and the quality of the Chi that's stored in your food rates more highly on the 'health' scale than the nutritional value and makeup! That's not to say that this energy theory ignores the value of vitamins, minerals and other nutrients, it just places the energetic qualities of your food above all else. That means that we need to take a good look at the appliances that traditionally cook that food, and most specifically at the oven. This one piece is considered the most important factor in the whole kitchen, as it's also where the cook both physically and energetically creates the meals and menus. This is also where Oriental cultures associated healthy food with money. They believe that the space where the stove sits is the home's 'energy generator,' the place where the cook meets the food that meets the fire that creates the sustenance for strength, stamina, health and nourishment for the breadwinner. Unless you're my son, you're getting the picture. Keep the stove immaculately clean. Fire up each burner at least once a day. And, if so inclined, affix a small mirror atop the backwash to 'double' your abundance, making sure that it stays very clean as well. You'll sure to be kept fat and happy if you do all or any of these 'cures.' Proverbially, of course!
