Holding Your Center
by Katherine Metz, Founder of Feng Shui Storyboard
A strong center can hold a family or business together amidst the complexities of everyday life and the ever changing, fast paced workplace.
If a home or office is lacking a strong center you can:
Hang a crystal ball or wind chime in the center of the building. And…
Create strong centers in every room. This could be a heavy conference table or a beautiful bouquet of flowers.
If family members or co-workers also lack strong internal centers—loosing the ability to stay grounded, trusting, and available—each person can:
Make a Sun Moon Mirror (as discussed in a previous Small Bite) and place it over the head of the bed, sun side facing the bed. The sun is an image reminding us to seek our own center, the source of our own power—to be self-sufficient and brilliant, and to help others as impartially as the sun warms the Earth.
As an added note, the moon side of the mirror is also working for you. The moon is constant, silently remaining in its orbit. It does not fight, yet it can pull the oceans from shore to shore. It is ever faithful to its nature, and its power is never diminished, whether in shadow or brightness.

Feng shui is an ancient practice developed over 3,000 years ago in China. Feng shui is not religion or superstition; it is a science because its formulas and fundamentals are based on empirical research and it is an art because experience and judgment are critical in the analysis. Feng Shui focuses on the study of Qi (pronounced “chi”, which is vital life energy) and how it can be harnessed to create harmonious living; better health, successful career or business, and fulfilling relationships for the people inhabiting the space.
