As a Feng Shui Master, before I start telling others what they need to do, I make sure I use the information I have for myself first. Then if something needs to be adjusted, or it doesn’t work for some reason, I know first-hand about it.
One of the many schools of Feng Shui is a school based on the animal energy from the animal of the Chinese New Year. This year as many of you know is the Year of the Sheep, Goat or Ram. I do a summary teleseminar, and record it, sharing what to expect in the way of energies associated with each animal just before the Chinese New Year starts. It includes the qualities to expect and what we can do to maximize the beneficial energies about to arrive on our doorsteps.
I choose to call this the Year of the Sheep since sheep and goats are a more feminine energy of compassion and caring as opposed to the “head-butting” energy of the ram. One of the main points for us as humans is to take care of ourselves FIRST AND FOREMOST this year!
Last year was a challenging year for me on several levels. I discovered I had a partially torn ligament in my foot. To avoid surgery, I had to stay off my foot for over 5 months! It took a toll on my business and my self-esteem. I gained a lot of weight for me and felt very low self-esteem. As the New Year arrived – the Western New Year – I vowed to regain the previous me. This came about after I did my first Home Blessing in 6 months. I had trouble carrying my “purification tools” to the home and was exhausted when I did the 4-hour “blessing.”
I know me and knew I wouldn’t travel to a gym 15 minutes away. So I joined the YMCA, which is only 1.7 miles, or 7 minutes by car. I slowly worked at strengthening the upper body with a special focus on the legs through cycling and weights.
To my surprise I was greeted earlier this week by this message from the exercise health coordinator, Christiane, via the tracking system they have at the Y. It says, “Linda, Wow! You’ve lifted over 1,000,000 lbs. That’s the equivalent of 128 elephants! 🙂 Christiane”
How do you lift an elephant? One pound at a time!
