Using a feng shui compassWritten by Jakob Jelling
What should you look for in a feng shui compass and how should you use it?
A feng shui compass is a very helpful element when it comes to finding out location and orientation of a house or building. It will allow you to apply feng shui guidelines in an accurate manner since it will provide you with knowledge on exact orientation your house has.
There are different kinds of compasses, and most useful feng shui compass you can find is one which allow you to look at numbers it shows at same time than you look at building and keep aligned with it. Other kinds of feng shui compasses, most traditional ones, require you to look down in order to watch numbers they show, and this is not as helpful as if you can watch them while keeping your sight up.
A traditional feng shui compass' name is "Lo Pan", "Lo" has meaning of "everything" and "Pan" means "bowl", and correct interpretation of term means a bowl which allows you to have access to universe mysteries. This feng shui compass is also known as traditional Chinese geomantic compass.
Cornucopia Centerpiece for Thanksgiving DayWritten by Candee Stark
As we enter into month of November my thoughts turn towards Thanksgiving and everything that this wonderful holiday has to offer. It is a time for spending time with family and friends and for counting many blessings past year has brought to us.
Like most people I like to decorate for holidays, and Thanksgiving is no exception. Indian corn, pumpkins, gourds, wheat, fruits, nuts, and anything that symbolizes a bountiful harvest are at top of list for things I like to include in my decorating scheme.
The best way to incorporate all of these items it to design a cornucopia centerpiece for Thanksgiving Day.What is a cornucopia?
Cornucopia is a Latin term derived from two words, cornu meaning horn and copia meaning plenty. The horn of plenty, as it is also known, is shaped like a horn or cone. It is usually shown overflowing with nuts and fruit. (Freeman, Morton, S. The Story behind Words. Philadelphia: Isis Press, 1985)
This everlasting symbol of abundance is easy to create and will become another important tradition you will want to share with your family each year.
