Feng Shui - Energies
The annual energies visiting our homes and buildings are very strong this year for a few reasons. The visiting stars, as we call them, all return home to their natural position on the bagua. The bagua is a simple foundational level of analysis. Many people are familiar with bagua mirrors.
Animal - Elephant
Elephants are the largest living land animals and play a central role in sustaining their local environments. As herbivorous creatures, Elephants live comfortably in a range of landscapes but always stay close to a good source of water which nurtures the plants on which they depend. Elephants have a powerful influence on the earth through their daily habits.
