Mallory's Books Online

Ancient Secrets Feng Shui

There is a way to view a book, get an understanding and enjoy some visuals from the author, and that is by following the authors video's of their books. Book Trailers.
Feng Shui is all about balance, feelings and living in the state of awareness at all times, keeping focused in the moment.  This can be a confusing subject, but there are some simple books explaining the ancient 5000 year old, I Ching ways for your understanding.
It has been my purpose to convey these ideas through easy to understand storys and charts for easy to learning. Its all about staying in control of your journey. Visuals, as in Videos will help to explain the non fiction book Ancient Secrets for a Healthy Home.

Book on Ancient studies of Feng Shui & Vaastu Shastra

Other viewings of other Feng Shui books with a bit of whimsy is Fun Schway Interiors North American Feng Shui Video. Taking a look at why we like one restaurant more than another, prefer one person better than another or understanding the difference of positive and negative energies within our daily habits.
Feng Shui is about colour, shapes and materials. Every one has their favourites and what is attractive, good to you is actually dangerous to another.
Kids study better in one area of a room over another because the space is part of their 4 best energy fields. We all have 4 prosperous areas and 4 negative ones. Your birthdate is the secret and explains why numbers, places and items are more suitable to you than another.
You can be either an East person or a West person and that gives you an idea where you are best suited to study, eat, sleep, work, live etc. The magic of energy.
Since everything is alive, connected and changing, as explained in Quantum Physics ... you will find the reasons why you are successful when near the water or near the forest (wood energy vs water energy). The Fun Schway of life, is great information for us all. Enjoy the read.

'How-to book' on the Sacred Studies of Feng Shui & Vaastu Shastra

For the last sixty years, ancient studies have found worldwide application in all aspects of architecture and interior design with the aim to create healthier environments and homes by  balancing the flow of positive and negative energies. Vaastu Shastra, the  India study of energy within the environment, and Feng shui from China are the ancient art of living in harmony with the environment. 
I decided to write this book and put on paper all the mysteries and secrets I had been practicing in my design business for the past thirty years, for all to learn and understand. These studies have for millenia mapped the path of the Earth's subtle energies, endeavoring to bring harmony and well-being to people, buildings and the environment.

Why is the world interested in ancient studies?

The purpose of the ancient China and India studies was to identify instability ad create a calm, healthy harmonious environment for our well-being where the mind, body and spirit become balanced with universal energy.  The world today, as we see it through electronic devices and no longer newspapers, is bursting with new inventions on a daily basis. The materialistic ways of the West are becoming common everywhere and turning lifestyles into a state of chaos. People are searching for a sense of calm, a peacefulness that will ward off rare illnesses and diseases. The daily chatter of an active mind now dominates every minute of every hour. Times of rest and self-relaxation are few and far between, with no energy left for contemplation.

The time once spent listening to nature is almost non-existent. There is no time to focus on the meditation of following the inhale and exhale of our own breath with sudden stops for enlightenment, which the sages did to obtain their wisdom. The study of Patanjali aphorisms is almost non-existent compared to a few centuries ago. Ironically, the West is seeking insight from the East, while the East is turning to materialism.

The spread of ancient studies for harmony and balance is taken very  seriously by architects and designers around the world. They wish to create healthy buildings and a renewed lifestyle free of multi-tasking. Stress caused by an overactive mind is lacking a harmonious environment. Outside space must be tranquil so that the body can rest and absorb the healing flow of the cosmic energies. Harmony with nature both inside and outside ourselves is attained by learning to have what we need and nothing more. Greed is the go of desire. Let go and be cleansed. The ancients believed the less you had, the less you had to worry about, so that you could fill yourself with knowledge, wisdom and harmonious energies while in a relaxing atmosphere.

These practices offer ways and means to focus on yourself. By reducing your activities, you have time to learn how you 'feel' about things, places and people. Take some quality time and focus on yourself. Notice how you react to certain people, colors, shapes, places, foods, and other items. Ask yourself if you like them or not. Would you change them if you could? It is about the need for a calm, uncluttered space to quiet the mind and talk back to the constant chatter of intrusions. Tell them to 'Take a hike!’ It's quiet time!

Creating a home for the soul, your true self is the goal of these ancient studies. Live right, eat right – naturally. Good light, fresh air, natural foods and healthy materials in your buildings, clothes and vehicles will all add up to a longer, more purposeful life minus the chemical off-gassing substances.

Keep things simple and remember that everything in moderation is good.  Once a week is better than once a day. Listen to music that feeds the soul, which will heal the body just as laughter has been known to do. Energy flow from the eight directions surrounds us no matter where we stand on the planet. Some directions are healthier than others are, as we all have different needs. Start mapping your own needs, giving yourself time everyday to heal. Attract positive energy by making your own corrections in favor of a more harmonious lifestyle with less 'chatter' in your mind. Pay attention to where you are happiest and to the surrounding colors, shapes and materials.

Since these ancient studies need to know where you are happiest, so they can truly reflect your personality and be aligned to your personal needs, be honest and list your needs. Remember the ayurveda rule, like increases like. For example... if you have a vata (air) constitution and you find your memory is not just poor but declining, you could be spending too much time in the Northwest realm, which belongs to the element air. If you are sleeping or working in this area, like increases like and leads to excess air-energy in the body. This interferes with your well-being.

Take a closer look at each space in your home or workspace. Does each area identify itself and speak to you by reflecting your personality? Or are you (so to speak) not in the picture? Is something amiss? You can read all the books you want, follow all the suggestions and make all the alterations, but if your home doesn't 'feel' just right, then your health will suffer.

The mystical movement of energy is something we cannot see, but it has the most profound effect on the body as well as the home. Make your own personal list of your favorite... colors, shapes and products. You will soon learn if you are more comfortable living with wood floors or tile, white walls or green walls, floral fabrics or stripes, round or rectangle windows, etc. Make yourself a personal portfolio and collect pictures of what you find pleasing and would be comfortable living with, then try and duplicate your 'likes'. Get rid of things you are not comfortable living with.

Over the years, we all change our opinions, needs and favorite items. Just as the weather changes from season to season, nothing ever stays the same forever. Pay attention to your health. It can tell you when it is time to refresh or change your surroundings. A change will alter the flow of energy within your space thereby aiding in preserving a healthy body.
