Roosters, Rainbows and Feng Shui – Janet Mitsui Brown

The Dragon & the Rooster — Good feng shui can improve your luck, your health, and your prosperity…but it often takes patience and hard work too. Fix the mundane, and if the energy is still stuck, try the transcendental…

But it’s those in-between days that can be exasperating. Even I, a feng shui practitioner, have these days. My husband experienced a few days of bad luck – he was feeling physically uncomfortable, came in second in an audition, and he accidentally hit the bumper of our car. Bummers. I handed him a rooster and he immediately put it in his pocket.

We’ve all experienced these kinds of days. The kind where you want to just crawl in bed.

When bad things happen and I feel lousy, I find if I let it be — the disappointment & the emotional hurt – (okay, it’s not easy) — somehow a rainbow of hope appears sometime later.

Disappointment and hurt happen for a reason – it’s part of life, and the philosophy is it happens so you’ll recognize the good things…so the best thing to do is to accept it, go to a movie, take a bath, read a book, see a friend, and let it pass somehow. For it will pass.

To maximize the positive, I wear a tourmaline bracelet & two special crystals for protection, and I carry a rooster in my pocket. Remember the rooster is the protector of the dragon this year.

And here’s the tag of this story: Remember I gave my husband the rooster two days ago? Well, the day after I gave my husband his rooster, we received notice that we were receiving a sizeable unexpected check in the mail! True story !

So just remember, if you have good feng shui, you will receive clarity — signs that things are going well, despite the ups and downs of daily life.

In gratitude, Janet Mitsui Brown
