Litter Box Feng Shui – Updated!

There’s this thing that no one is talking about. I’m not sure if they just don’t obsess about such things as I do or if they just don’t have cats, but either way, I’m about to give up all my Feng Shui litter box, art of placement secrets right here and now. Unless you are lucky enough to have a fenced in backyard with a cat door, and cats that will happily poo in your garden, you have had to deal with the eternal question of where to put your cat’s litter box. Since I have grown up with cats my entire life, and I have been studying and teaching Feng Shui for over 20 years, I feel like a genuine expert on this topic.

When I was in college, I moved into an off-campus apartment with two girls. One of them got a cat and then left it every weekend to go to her boyfriend’s house in another city. This wouldn’t have been a big deal except that she refused to clean out the cat box. Clumping cat litter was just becoming popular back then and she seemed to believe that because it was so expensive, it would last indefinitely. After several weeks, her cat’s box was becoming intolerable and since she was out of town again, I cleaned it. All I remember about this event afterward is that she was pissed when she came home and insisted that I replace the litter. I have no idea if I did, but knowing me, I didn’t!

I was not aware of Feng Shui at the time, but I do remember the layout of the apartment and I have since Feng Schway’ed it from memory. It does not surprise me one bit to discover that her cat’s filthy litter box was in the Relationship or #2 gua of our apartment. Looking back, it makes perfect sense that we completely lost touch. I am not saying that our friendship ended because of the placement of her cat’s litter box. I am saying that the litter box, in this scenario, accurately reflected the status of our friendship.

In a lot of ways, Feng Shui has some psychology to it. In fact, it is this piece to the Feng Shui puzzle that keeps me so intrigued. Everything in our home or workplace is a reflection of something else in our life. Everything is placed either by accident or on purpose to create or reflect something seen or unseen. We can become aware of subconscious and unconscious patterns and habits when we use Feng Shui on purpose. In fact, that is what makes it so fun.

This brings us back to my original query of where to put the cat box. In order to decide this, we need only look at the primary element of a cat box, sans the pee & poo. Litter represents earth so once we determine which part of the room either creates or supports the earth element, we will have our answer. Conversely, we can approach it from the specific life area within the bagua that seems the most logical.

To keep things on the easy side, I am going with the logical explanation. Since the act of cleaning out a cat box on the daily is indeed an “act of service”, it fits nicely with the #6 gua of the bagua which is the Helpful People, Service and Travel section of the nine gua bagua. (See the bagua example below). When standing at the door to any room, aka the mouth of chi, the #6 gua of the bagua is in the far, front right corner.

Now, let’s face it. Even with the cat box in a Feng Shui appropriate place, it is still an unattractive piece of decor. With this in mind, I have a few suggestions for making it less obnoxious. If you are limited to where you can place the cat box, I recommend hiding it inside a piece of furniture and placing small, round beveled mirrors facing out on all sides of the cat box so that it effectively “disappears.” Even if you don’t have it hidden inside a piece of furniture, placing small mirrors on the outside will then reflect all the things that are around it and it will appear to disappear.

1.) You can put something over it to disguise it.

2.) You can place a small mirrors facing out, around the box so that the box itself appears to “disappear”.

3.) You can go to your local thrift store and find an end table that can be transformed into a perfect kitty box hideaway.

4.) You can order fancy cover from Chewy or some other online source.


The Feng Shui of Moving

Some people hate to move.  I love it, well, that’s not entirely true. I love the opportunity for a fresh start that comes with moving. I love getting to know a new space, figuring out how to connect with it and learn from it. Looking back through my old address book, you know, the kind made out of paper, I can see every address that I have had since I moved away to go to college.

Including the move that I just made, I will have moved 18 times in 31 years, or on an average of every 1.7 years.  I guess you could say I have gypsy roots; either that or I just like using my home to heal. Either way, I definitely have this down to an art form, and I have learned a few things along the way. I could talk here about all the benefits of moving a lot, including the inability to become a hoarder, but I’d rather talk about using the spaces we live in to heal the broken parts within us.

Consider for a moment the possibility that every home has a purpose beyond the obvious. What if our homes were lined up to meet us, waiting for the chance to get to know us like a potential new relationship partner? What would they want to tell us? What would they want to know about us? What if every single house has a language that until now, we have been deaf to hear? What if I told you that Feng Shui is the language of our homes? Would you be willing to learn that language so that you could communicate and learn from it?

Feng Shui has been called a lot of things over the years, but until now, I don’t think that anyone has taken the time to get to know its true self. There is so much more to Feng Shui than the definition it has been given, and I am here to explore its gifts and its true purpose for showing up for me, for you and for the world.

When we move to a new place, we are confronted by a lot of changes all at once. It can be very chaotic and full of anxiety, but it can also be exciting and mysterious.  Most of the time, it is actually all of the above!  I started my deep dive into Feng Shui shortly after I got married and we decided to buy a house.  Since then, I have been utterly fascinated with everything that my homes have stepped up to teach me, and I want to share this gift with the world.

The number one thing that I have discovered is that there is nothing truly random about the homes that we choose.  There is also nothing random about being attracted to a house with rooms in one place or another.  Why are we attracted to this house more than that one?  If you take away the external factors like cost and location, one house may seem just as good as another.   Usually, we react to a home because of something within us. When we operate on a wholly intuitive level, we fall in love with a home because it reminds of something, someone or some history within us.

Every thing in our home, every room placement, every seemingly randomly piece of furniture or artwork, has a subconscious source.  It isn’t until you work with a consultant  (worth every penny) or chose to dive in on your own (much more difficult), that you learn to see the messages hidden in plain sight.  The truth is literally staring right back at you.  The challenge is to learn to stare back, and see the gift it is there to give.

Let me give a real life example.  One of the things that I no longer attract are homes with doors that fight.  This is a very common design in apartments and houses where space is at a premium.  For some reason, architects frequently create homes plans with a front door that bangs into the closet door behind it.  I am SURE that if they knew that this was a Feng Shui no-no, they would stop doing it, right?!

When I think back to the homes I’ve had that provided the most yelling, arguing and fighting, they all had two doors that either banged into each other or had the potential to bang into each other.  For a very long time, I always seemed to find those places and move into them.  However, since moving to Boulder 18 months ago, I have stopped attracting those type of homes.  It just isn’t an issue anymore.  That is what Feng Shui can do when you use it for healing and self-awareness.

I’ve been using my homes to test out my own blocks, the blocks that I discovered because of the journey that I live daily with Feng Shui awareness and tools.  I can’t NOT do Feng Shui.  It is woven into my DNA after studying it, helping others learn from it and applying it to every aspect of my life for over 20 years.  That is when you know that you are doing the thing that you soul wants you to be doing.  It becomes the thing that you can’t imagine not doing.

My goal is to help others heal their lives using this beautiful and sacred tool.  If you are ready to dive in and explore your inner world with Feng Shui, call me today at 512-496-9232 or email me at logynnbnorthrhip@gmail.com or fungschwaygirl@yahoo.com.  I’m here to help.  Are you ready to wake up and create the life that was meant for you?

Using the Violet Flame with Feng Shui

In last month’s blog, I discussed an energy clearing technique called The Triple Grid, and I mentioned that my next blog would focus on something called the Violet Flame.  I am writing today to fulfill my promise.  If you regularly follow this blog, you are most likely aware of Feng Shui, and by that rational, you have an awareness of that which is invisible yet tangible.  What a dichotomy!  How can something be invisible and tangible?

There is one thing that I know every person has felt but never seen and that is the wind.  Wind itself is invisible, but we feel it right?  We see the damage that it can do when it is too forceful, but we don’t actually see wind.  Ahh, but what about tornados?  Aren’t they a visual example of wind?  Are we actually seeing wind or are we seeing the debris that is caught in the wind?  I would be remiss if I didn’t mention that the actual translation of the words Feng and Shui are Wind and Water, two things in this world that are both seen and unseen, or tangible and intangible.  Pretty cool isn’t it?  I think it is cool, but then again, I am a Feng Shui nerd!

Now, let’s get back to the Violet Flame.  According to Troika Saint Germaine, the Violet Flame is a Divine Gift and tool that can be used by anyone, and was given to us by Ascended Master Saint Germaine. It is Spiritual Alchemy in action, and it is worth more than all the gold in the world.  What is Spiritual Alchemy?  The word alchemy is defined as the “the transformation of matter”. (Merrium-Webster), so it stands to reason that Spiritual Alchemy will have a transformative effect on our spiritual selves.  This is not to be confused with religion.

As humans, we are composed of four spiritual bodies, including the Physical, Emotional, Mental and Spiritual bodies, or P=EMS. (I made that up so I could remember the order of the bodies!). When we connect to our Higher Self and we ask that the Violet Flame transmutes and transforms all limiting thoughts, habits, & beliefs from all of our bodies: Physical, Emotional, Mental, & Spiritual, we are doing some heavy duty etheric house cleaning, only the house in this instance is our body.  If you want to go a little further, add in the phrase, “in all dimensions, time and space; past, present and future.”  That should take care of any lingering negativity.

While I do not have copyright permissions to use anything from the linked site below, I can include the link in this blog so that you may benefit from the gifts within it.  It is by far one of the very best and most accurate sources on the topic of the Violet Flame that I have ever stumbled upon, and if you follow this link, you will not be disappointed by what you discover. http://ascension-stgermain.com/violetflame-article.html

Another thing that I read today is that  “Energy is never lost nor can it be “deleted”, however, it can be CHANGED into a higher frequency.” (http://ascension-stgermain.com/violetflame-article.html)  I feel like I’ve always known that energy cannot be deleted, but I’ve never thought of it in those terms.  The word delete is such a modern term.  Before the advent of computers, I don’t think that we would have used the word delete as frequently as we do now.

Now, since this is a blog about Feng Shui, and Feng Shui is all about energy, it makes perfect sense to apply this wisdom that we use to clear our body of negative energy, and use it in our homes and offices as well.  If we apply this concept of changing energy to a higher frequency as it relates to the concepts of Feng Shui and the invisible and visible within our homes and our workplaces, the potential for change is outstanding!

Take a moment when you can be undisturbed by loud neighbors or purring kitties, close your eyes and quiet your mind.  Speaking out loud, ask that the Violet Flame descend into your home.  Let its light permeate every molecule of space in, through and around your entire home.  Ask that the energy be transformed and transmuted, cleaned and cleared of all limiting thoughts, habits and beliefs, from all predecessor energy, in all dimensions, time and space; past, present and future . . . You know the drill, especially if you have already practiced what you learned by following the links above.

This is powerful and sacred work that we are doing on ourselves and on our surroundings, but let’s take it one final step further.  What if we started sending this Violet Flame to the places that need it most?  Can you think of a certain house in the United States that needs the alchemy of change to flourish?  I’ll give you a hint.  It is big, and white and it is also called the White House.  What if one by one, we started visualizing the Violet Flame at work in the White House or in Congress?  Holy cow!  Instead of spinning our wheels bitching at one another about politics, we can use the alchemy of the Violet Flame to alter the energy.  I can’t think of a place that needs a Feng Shui adjustment more than the White House.  Talk about predecessor energy!

I am including one other resource for information about the power of the Violet Flame below.  It’s author, Marius, is an artist who creates beautiful artwork of spiritual beings and spiritual symbols.  Many years ago, I ordered a small, 5×7 photo of his Violet Flame artwork and it has helped me to mentally focus and train my brain to “see” the flame in my mind’s eye.

I would also like to add that a few years ago, I was teaching a meditation class at Apple computers in Austin, TX and one of the participants in that class later created his own interpretation of the Violet Flame and gave it to me as a gift.  It is the featured image in this post and one that I cherish to this day.  When we surround ourselves with beautiful energy, beautiful light and the ancient healing gifts of this work and the power of Feng Shui, we create an anchor for more goodness to follow.

Feng Shui for Your Auric Field – How to Clear Your Energy Fields

When something feels “off” in our homes, it can often be traced back to some of the pillars of Feng Shui, things like the design of a room, the layout, the colors we see, or perhaps even a memory of an encounter we had with someone we loved that had a bad ending.  Once you recognize the source of the problem, the study of this ancient practice of Feng Shui has solutions, cures and specific techniques to clear the tangible or intangible problems.

Now, what happens when something feels off within us?  Once you’ve ruled out any sort of cold or illness, it may be time to turn your attention to your energy body.  Whether you are familiar with the an auric field or not, it is there, regardless of your belief or skepticism.  The auric field is an energy field that surrounds each and every human being extending about 3 feet in every direction.  It could almost be described as your own personal cocoon.   It is sort of like our body’s home, if you will.  Or perhaps a better way to describe it would be to say that it is our body’s force field.

However you describe the aura, the fact remains that it is a permeable layer, meaning that it allows energy in and out.  If you’ve ever been around someone who is really happy, that happiness can almost magically rub off on you just by being around them.  You might start to feel better or happier without realizing why.  The cells of your body will tend to gravitate to that sunniness, to that joy-filled person that created this feeling within you.  And it doesn’t even have to come from just one person.  Once you align with an energy that feels good, you become a magnet for it.  Your energy vibration craves it, and the law of attraction teaches that as long as you stay in that higher energy and elevated state, like will attract like and you will attract people that match you.

The same is true if you spend too much time with someone who is angry, judgmental or bitter.  Spending time with this type of people has just as debilitating an impact on us.  The most difficult thing is learning to recognize the difference between feeling your own mixed bag of emotions, or if you have somehow picked up on someone else’s energy.

Are you picking up what someone else is putting down?  Are sure you want that?

Because people lie and hide their true emotions so easily, we might not realize that we are hanging out with someone who isn’t in a good place emotionally.  An emphatic (a.k.a. empath) or a very empathetic person can inadvertently absorb another person’s emotional confusion and sadness.   Just like we enjoy the positive energy of happy people, an unhappy person may also feel some relief from their own low emotions because that empathic companion is probably willing on some level to absorb some of their negative load.

Whether you absorb negative energy on purpose or by accident, once you become aware that something doesn’t feel right within you, the only way to shake it is to do your own personal auric space clearing.  You might even call it Auric Feng Shui!  I know of two very effective tools for doing just this.  One is called the Triple Grid and the other uses the Violet Flame.  If you aren’t comfortable daydreaming a little, this will take some practice.  Visualizing is just intentional daydreaming in my opinion and that is the key to unlocking this tool and using it to feel better.

I use both of these tools regularly, depending on the amount of time I want to spend on it.  The first is from a website called the Alchemical Mage.  For my own auric health, I apply the individual version of this technique, but spoiler alert, you can also use your home, on someone else’s home or some other public place.  You don’t need anyone’s permission or approval either.  This is a technique that I have shared with many of my Feng Shui clients over the years, and it works beautifully!   You can copy the following link to that page here: http://www.alchemicalmage.com/techniques/grid.htm. (Updated 1/22/19:  Since I wrote this blog post, the above link has been taken down by the sites administrators.  If you would like this information, I have the original book with the techniques and I can teach it to you.  Just contact me at logynnbnorthrhip@gmail.com or 512-496-9232.)

I was drawn to write this tonight because I met a friend at a bar near Pearl Street yesterday that has been in business for over 45 years.  It is doubtful that anyone has ever done a space clearing on this place.  I was completely enthralled with the history that must have occurred at this establishment.  However, once I got home, I felt a despair and depression that is not my usual.  I was extremely tired at a very early hour, and when I did wake up, I wasn’t refreshed.  If anything, I was in a massive funk.   I felt like I was riding on an emotional roller coaster and I COULD NOT SHAKE IT.

Finally, halfway through the day, a lightbulb finally went off in my head and smacked me into awareness.  I turned off the t.v. and found a comfortable spot without any of my pets crawling all over me, and repeated the following words out loud as I visualized each step.  The first is for our spaces and the instructions that follow it are for our individual energy fields.

The Triple Grid

From the book What Is Lightbody? and Tools for Living Heaven tape set

This is for keeping areas like your home, workplace or car energetically clean. In the Triple Grid technique you ask the specific group to set up their level of the grid, designating the geometric shape, size and location. Spherical grids are the most stable and easy to maintain, so we suggest working with this geometry for most everyday applications (such as around your home, car or workplace). You will want to renew the grid weekly or when ever you notice the energy getting funky.

“Legions of Michael: grid level one, spherical, my house. Destroyer Force Angels: grid level two, spherical, my house. Circle Security: grid level three, spherical, my house.

“Destroyer Force Angels: please spin your grid, spinning out astral entities, adverse electromagnetic frequencies, fear, disharmony, anger, adverse astrological influences, expectation, frustration, viruses, fungi, bacteria, worry, astral distortions, miscommunication, sadness, enemy patterning, scarcity, loneliness, karmic monads, and anything that distorts the spiritual signature or clear communication with Spirit. Spin out anything that hasn’t been mentioned in this or any other language, but which you know needs to leave the space at this time.” (These are just a few suggestions. Fill in whatever is needed according to your situation).

When the clearing feels complete, continue with, “Reverse spin, same stuff.” When that feels complete, end with, “Stop spin. Thank you.”

“Legions of Michael, please infuse your grid with the energies of Grace, Purity, Faith, Hope, Peace, Liberty, Harmony, Love, Mercy, Alpha/Omega, Rapture and Victory Elohim. Infuse with love, intimacy, the Unified Chakra, being centered, clarity, full connection with Spirit, tolerance, clear communication, health, wealth, following Spirit without hesitation, mastery, sovereignty, living Heaven, and anything else that hasn’t been mentioned in this or any other language, but which you know needs to be in the space at this time. Please seal your grid. Thank you.” (Again more suggestions. Fill in whatever you need, according to your situation.)

“Circle Security, realign your grid to harmonize with upper-dimensional gridworks. Release all distortions and parasites on the grids. Infuse frequencies for clearer communication with Spirit. Seal grid. Thank you.”

The Triple Grid can be done around a location without you being physically there. Try doing it around the mall, the courthouse, the grocery store or the post office, before you get there. Remember that it cannot be used to manipulate others; it just makes particular energies more or less easily available. This is a very versatile technique. We have given you the everyday applications. The spherical geometry is very stable and easy to maintain. Live in it all the time and it will be easier to live Heaven on Earth.

The Triple Grid should NOT be used around your own fields, as the speed with which the Destroyer Forces spin might cause your own fields to fray. (See the Triple/Quad Grid: Individual Field Version for a technique to grid your own fields.)

“Quad Grid” Version

This is an expansion of the Triple Grid, where you request assistance for dealing with the electromagnetic anomalies and surges that are currently very active on the planet. As the planet approaches Zero Point magnetics, electromagnetic surges are very common. This addition to the Triple Grid will help you keep your fields healthy through the planetary shifts.

The Ze’Or Continuum is a group of beings who originate from another universe. They are pure-energy beings, and they are the sentient embodiment of physical forces, such as gravity, electricity, magnetics, thermals, etc. They have come to assist Earth and her inhabitants through the electromagnetic shifts we are experiencing preparatory to Zero Point. They are always available to assist upon request.

Basically, you request the Triple Grid as normal, adding a line in the beginning: “Legions of Michael: grid level one, spherical, my house. Destroyer Force Angels: grid level two, spherical, my house. Ze’Or Continuum: grid level three, spherical, my house. Circle Security: grid level four, spherical, my house.”

Proceed with the grid, requesting the Destroyer Force Angels to spin their grid, the Legions of Michael to infuse it. Then, you request the following:

“Ze’Or Continuum, please set your grid for harmonization and optimization of electrical, magnetic, and gravitational frequencies. Please ensure that my fields remain harmonized with all of the electronic and mechanical devices in my space, and that I and the devices in my space remain harmonized in frequency with any electromagnetic surges, ley-line activity, Schumann Resonance, and any other electro- magneto-gravitational events and conditions occurring in this area. Thank you.”

You then request Circle Security to seal the grid as normal.

Triple/Quad Grid: Individual Field Version

“Legions of Michael: grid level one, spherical, my fields. Grace Elohim: grid level two, spherical, my fields. Circle Security: grid level three, spherical, my fields.

“Grace Elohim: please fill your grid with your energies, releasing astral entities, adverse electromagnetic frequencies, fear, disharmony, anger, adverse astrological influences, expectation, frustration, viruses, fungi, bacteria, worry, astral distortions, miscommunication, sadness, enemy patterning, scarcity, loneliness, karmic monads, and anything that distorts the spiritual signature or clear communication with Spirit. Release anything that hasn’t been mentioned in this or any other language, but which you know needs to leave my fields at this time.” (These are just a few suggestions. Fill in whatever is needed according to your situation). Then, “Spirit: I ask you to release all energies, entities, thoughtforms, emotions, cellular memory, orientations, pictures of reality, devices, intrusions and effects in my body and fields that are not of my core Divine essence, NOW!”

When the clearing feels complete, “Thank you.”

“Legions of Michael, please infuse your grid with the energies of Grace, Purity, Faith, Hope, Peace, Liberty, Harmony, and Victory Elohim. Infuse with love, intimacy, the Unified Chakra, centeredness, clarity, full connection with Spirit, tolerance, clear communication, health, wealth, following Spirit without hesitation, mastery, sovereignty, living Heaven, and anything else that hasn’t been mentioned in this or any other language, but which you know needs to be in my fields at this time. Please seal your grid. Thank you.” (Again more suggestions. Fill in whatever you need, according to your situation.)

“Circle Security, realign your grid to harmonize with upper-dimensional gridworks. Release all distortions and parasites on the grids. Infuse frequencies for clearer communication with Spirit. Seal grid. Thank you.”

The Triple/Quad Grid, Individual Field Version, is a good one to use when you’re outside, when you’re travelling between gridded spaces, or anytime you feel you need to get clearer. It can be infused into a crystal and worn around your neck or on your person; when you feel like renewing the Grid, just request the deva of the crystal to “Renew Individual Grid.” You might need to do a full version once a week-otherwise, renewing it one or more times a day can be done as outlined above and is still effective. You can also add the optional Ze’Or Grid, as outlined in the Quad Grid section of the “Triple Grid: Field Version”, above.

In my next blog, I will share instructions for my other favorite space clearing technique – The Violet Flame.

Until then, enjoy playing with this one and see if you notice a difference when you use it on yourself, on your loved ones and in your home.

The Truth Behind Feng Shui Space Clearings & Blessing Ceremonies

This blog is about one of my favorite things in Feng Shui.  It involves something that most people never think about: clearing the energetic imprint of a space and then blessing it. There are entire books written on the subject of space clearing alone. However, for the purposes of this blog, I am only going to describe the way it is used by the Black Hat Sect Tibetan Buddhist Feng Shui practitioner. Try saying that three times fast!

First, let me tell you why you might want to do a space clearing ceremony. We all know that energy is present in our homes, and I’m not talking about the kind you get from the electric company.  In the form of chi energy, it either meanders through your home or it dashes around like a boomerang.  How it flows depends on how the home is designed, but what about the energy of emotions?  Anyone who has ever gone from zen to crazy in 2.5 seconds knows how quickly and potent emotional energy can be.

In our homes, this emotional energy sticks around, even after the dust of an argument has settled. However, arguments are not the only way that emotional energy effects your home.  Here are a few questions to ask yourself:

Has your home ever been burglarized?

Has anyone ever been assaulted in your home?

Has anyone ever died in your home? (very common in older homes)

Was your home built on or near a cemetary?

Is it near a church or funeral home?

When something tragic happens in your home, that energy becomes palpable. I once did a space clearing at a 100 year old house.  The homeowner was aware that several previous inhabitants had died in the home. It may not be the easiest thing to talk about, but it really is important to know the history of your home.  If you don’t know the history, it is better to clear it all out just in case.

In a standard Feng Shui interior space clearing, we use two main ceremonies: Smoking the Orange Peels and Sealing the Doors.  In the Smoking Orange Peels cure, the smoke combined with the Three Secrets Reinforcement intentions, clears out the negative energy  from the space. The second step involves employing the Sealing the Doors cure.   This prevents the negative energy from re-entering.  This ceremony is especially important if your home or business has ever been robbed. I hear so many people tell me that they have been robbed not once, but two or three times. To prevent it from continuing to happen, it is necessary to get rid of that energy once and for all.  And finally, if you live in a home that has unwelcome spirit energy, this is definitely the ceremony of choice.

Once the inside in complete, the real fun begins.  A Blessing Ceremony encourages growth, luck and prosperity. This is often done when moving into a new home or business location, during times of bad luck, as a cure for predecessor problems or when under spiritual attack.  A Blessing Ceremony uses rice, cinnabar, high proof “spirits” and the recitation of the Ten Powerful mantras during the Three Secrets Reinforcements to charge the rice mixture.  The rice then becomes food for the hungry ghosts and represents seeds of blessings and desired outcomes that we ‘plant’ with our intention to create the life we want.

While anyone can learn to do these type of space and blessing ceremonies with a little training, hiring a certified Feng Shui practitioner can take the guess work out of it so that you can focus on the most important of the Three Secrets, the actions that you desire to see made manifest!



The Amazing Energy Of Red Rocks – A Feng Shui Perspective

I moved to Colorado six months ago, and on June 1st, I got to experience one of the most unique things about this beautiful state; Red Rocks Amphitheater in Morrison, CO.  I was there to see the always amazing Michael Franti and the Spearheads, and as usual, he did not disappoint.


One of the things that I noticed was the very unique layout for the performers and the crowd:  each is able to be in what we call a commanding position during the show.  In Feng Shui, being able to have our power areas in a commanding position is one of the top priorities.  The power areas I’m referring to are our desk, bed and stove, but when we apply that wisdom to the Red Rocks Amphitheater, we are expanding our definition of power areas to include the stage and the seating.  For all intents and purposes, the stage is a performer’s “desk” and the seating area is the audience’s “bed.”

In Feng Shui, an armchair design is highly desired when siting the placement of a home. There is protection behind the home, protection along the sides and the home itself would sit at the seat, with a supported back and an open, clear view at the front. Now, let’s apply that little nugget to the design of Red Rocks.  The audience has seating from low to high, and therefore, a very protected back.  The performers have a similar protection thanks to a very large, red rock behind the stage.  In addition, there are two large rocks on either side of the seating area, which gives the armchair effect mentioned earlier.  This allows both the performers and the audience to be in a  commanding and protected energy.IMG_0026

I doubt that John Brisbane Walker or the Civilian Conservation Corps and WPA consulted a Feng Shui expert when they enhanced the layout of this special place.  However, as is often the case, when we pay attention to our intuition, we can create Feng Shui masterpieces.

The natural amphitheater of Red Rocks took over 200 million years to create, and another 35 years to be developed to its current glory, but today, it is still one of the most unique and special venues for performers and concert goers anywhere. It is no wonder that Red Rocks has left such an impression on everyone that has had the fortune to attend.  On a subconscious and physical level it creates support, protection and a solid sense of grounding.  Healthy Feng Shui is always a combination of both tangible and intangible qualities.  Red Rocks Amphitheater serves up both, and gives a one-of-a-kind experience that isn’t soon forgotten.
