Fur Shui For PetsPublished December 9, 2008
When my husband and I moved from New York to Florida many years ago, one of my dearest friends gave us our first housewarming gift; a book about Feng Shui. My friend visited shortly thereafter, walking with me around our new digs, making suggestions about where to put certain items. She explained that by doing this, we could balance the energy in our house to promote our good health, happiness and good fortune. I must admit I was skeptical at first, but after reading more about this ancient Chinese practice, I soon realized that what she was advising was very wise. We followed her instructions carefully, which definitely helped us to feel more at "home" after our relocation. Translated into English, Feng Shui is "wind” and "water", which are the two natural forces of Chi, (energy). Therefore, according to this practice, we can improve the quality of our lives by carefully arranging furniture, artwork, photographs and other objects in our homes. Each room and area in the home carries certain energies which need to be observed and heightened. However, it appears that our pets may also benefit from Feng Shui. Paula Brown's book, "Fur Shui" has taken this practice to another level altogether. In her book she focuses the healing art for pets. In an excerpt from the Fur Shui website, Ms. Brown explains how animals can be affected by their environment. Hubble, engaging in his "fur shui" method “Whether you have a dog, cat, bird, or goldfish, you and your pet reverberate with chi, the mystic flow of life. FUR SHUI offers a serious but lighthearted overview of how we can easily improve the quality of life both for our furry (and non-furry) friends and for ourselves. You’ll learn that animals are full of natural energy and have a pervasive desire to provide emotional support to their caretakers. By understanding the simple principles in FUR SHUI, you’ll immediately see that our pets have the power to improve our health, protect our homes, and commiserate with us on work, money, and love.” We can easily observe how our pets are affected by the activity in our households and how our emotions impact them. So it is logical that by paying attention to their environment, as well as ours, giving them the most appropriate support, they may also thrive and flourish more readily.
