The civil rights movement started around the 1950's and continued through the 60's, with roots of the movement spreading back to the 19th century. Today, those actions still stands strong as it covers the entire spectrum of humanity in how we ALL choose to interact with one another. It's no secret during 2017 an uprising of groups and/or individuals who would prefer to keep America stuck in a very dated way of thinking and living openly reveled themselves.The reality is, this world, this nation, our communities and families need find a common denominator if true AUTHENTIC change for the better is going to blossom. Thank you for your teachings Mr. King and happy birthday!  “Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that.” ― M...

Have you heard of American author, Stephen King? He has written more than fifty books within the genre of horror, supernatural fiction, suspense, science fiction, and fantasy. And all of his books are worldwide bestsellers. So, how does Mr. King get into the FLOW of writing and stay there?  From an Ecological Feng Shui perspective he INTENTIONALLY establishes an ENVIRONMENT that works best for him. All the details are there, right down to the placement of his desk, the amount of light he allows into his writing room, to the type of music played that helps maintain his focus (AC/DC and Metallica). As said in the practice of Feng Shui, Ecological Psychology “suggests that the objects your are surrounded by are not static; rather, they influence and invite specific behaviors. Experiments s...

When I'm not providing Feng Shui consultations, my other love in life is creating artwork. This is a piece I started in Los Angeles, California and recently completed it in New York. My inspiration pulls from sacred geometry, Taoism, and the powerful symbolic nature of a hummingbird. I can't tell you much else as that was the starting point and the rest took on an intuitive creative and healing process. I also included up close images of the graphite/fire painting because the photo really does not allow you to see the delicate lines and soft translucent overlays. There are also written words hidden within the artwork. Can you see where they are? The size of this drawing is 22 1/2 x 30 inches. What's the title? As of right now, its untitled.Enjoy!  This is a close up of layers that illus...

“All is energy (all physical things),” said by Cellular Biologist, Bruce H. Lipton, Ph.D, who studies quantum mechanics in America. Dr. Lipton refers to energy as “the field" and shares the entire makeup of our world and universe is sitting in "the field" of energy, which acts as a communication system that is constantly broadcasting unique vibrations to and from everything and everyone. Based on his research, “the field” needs to have harmonistic residence which could be achieved or dismantled through the process of entanglement which leads to interference. Entanglement depends on the type of INTENTIONS, ACTIONS, SURROUNDINGS and PEOPLE you interact with. Interference is the result of those interactions. You could have Constructive interference (good vibes) or Deconstructive interferen...

Our primitive MIND taps into FEAR based thoughts of what we DO NOT UNDERSTAND. It could be in regard to another person or another culture. I invite you to have an OPEN MIND with what I’m about to share in regard to how number 4 could provide valuable lessons.  In the Cantonese language number 4 sounds similar to “death” and due to that, a stigma against 4 evolved. So when we see the number 4, does it mean we'll have “back luck” coming our way? That all depends on how you CHOOSE to PERCEIVE number 4.  I CAN ONLY SHARE WHAT I HAVE OBSERVED AND FIRST HAND EXPERIENCED WITH THE NUMBER 4 THROUGH A PERSONAL SHORT STORY.   On May 18th, 2010 I received a call from the Huntington physical rehab center in New York. The nurse shared my mother, Carole Provenzlae was not doing good and that I needed ...

Happy Earth Birthday, Carole Provenzale! She was born on December 17th, 1954. I say earth birthday because Carole (mom) passed away in 2010. Since that time the understating of "loss" has transcended into un-attachment (which is so FREEING!). Naturally, sadness wells up here and there, yet I find every year, I am more present with my daily focus and with those who truly add value to my life and I to theirs.  I give thanks to your guidance as a young child and lady growing up. Even during these times as needed I can feel your presence. Thank you for mentoring me and preparing me for life. Your wisdom has helped establish a solid platform to build upon. Keep journeying well!  Laura Cerrano with Carole Provenzale Certified Feng Shui consultants and founder of Feng Shui Long Island, Inc est...

"On Sunday, December 3rd stargazers, astronomers and curious sky-watchers will get a chance to witness the first and only supermoon of 2017." - Alaa Elassar, CNN Reporter, December, 2017 The term supermoon was coined by astrologer, Richard Nolle in 1979. The official scientific term is called "perigee syzygy of the earth-moon-sun system." This refers to three celestial bodies in one straight line. The moon will appear 14% larger and 30% brighter than a full moon. Tides are about 2 inches more than regular tides. According to National Geographic, technically this will be the fourth supermoon of the year, but its' the only one we'll been able to see with the naked eyes.   When to see it? Officially, it started on December 3rd. In the United States, the full moon begins at 10:46am ET. The...

On Thanksgiving eve I visited The Public Theater in New York City for the first time and I have to say was pretty impressed!Conceived over 60 years ago, The public theater is one of the nation's first nonprofit theaters. The public has long operated on the principles that theater is an essential cultural force and that are and culture belong to everyone.  The play I saw was called "Office Hour." Playwright Julia Cho returns to The Public with a taut new drama about a teacher and student desperate to change the narrative of who they are and how their story ends.If you have never been to The public Theater, please do yourself a favor and go.  Address425 Lafayette Street (at Astor Place) New York, NY 10003

What is an intention? Gary Zukav shares, “ it's a motivation for doing what you're doing. It’s an energy that infuses the DEED or the WORD.” To further this understanding of intention(s), you need to ask yourself, are you setting intentions from a place of LOVE or FEAR? This could mean are you doing something because you seek recognition to feel better about yourself (FEAR) or because you have something you wish to share and contribute to life and with others (LOVE). To provide a foundation to build from, I invite you to read and test out 5 tips to increasing your manifesting powers below.  1. Planting your “Seeds” of IntentionsYour seeds of intentions come from LOVE, which is a deep inner knowing of what drives you to do what you do on this earth. Yet, if are unable to drill that deep ...

Lately, I’ve been receiving multiple calls to provide Feng Shui Consultations with the purpose of selling homes. So getting right to it, here are five tips to help the process of selling move along.   TIP #1:Pay close attention to the initial impressions you receive upon approaching the house. Starting from the driveway (if you have one) and moving your way toward and around the rest of the house ask yourself:  Is the home easy to spot from the street? This includes the house number on the house and mail box. Does it convey an inviting feeling? Is anything physically or visually blocking me from driving or walking to the house? Think simple outdoor front entrance displays; solar lights, flowers, welcome sign or mat as some basic go-to enhancements.  Sometimes this can be challenging bec...

Empathy is the ability to understand, feel, and experience another person's spirit and soul through heart connection. This also includes the connection to mother earth’s creations and the entire universal dynamic.  The implementation of Feng Shui suggestions goes way beyond the bases of making a room aesthetically pleasing. The Feng Shui consultant is acknowledging and working with his or her client on an empathic level. With no judgment, the consultant attentively listens to their clients story, which includes; life experiences that have cultivated a current mindset. These insights hold the key to why particular perspectives and/or behaviors toward themselves, others and the world have developed. This is essential information because it allows the consultant to establish a ‘game plan’ ...

It's Friday fun-day! Here is a playful tip on how to use a more metaphysical approach to Feng Shui-ing your home. According to Doreen Virtue, she recommends calling upon Archangel Jophiel as she affectionately and respectfully refers to Jophiel as the “Feng Shui Angel.” Jophiel knows how much an organized environment affects our energy levels, mood, sleep patterns, and health. She provides energetic assistance to help you reduce clutter and create a meaningful environment that’s conducive to work and relaxation.To learn more, please visit Doreen Virtue's official website: Angel Therapy   Photo by Couleur
