Fellow Students of Life,

On Denise Linn’s July 19, 2011 Soul Coaching radio show, she spoke about using Feng Shui to create abundance. If you have issues around receiving abundance, you may want to resolve them before you Feng Shui your home or at least be willing to release your insecurities around abundance.

10 Easy Feng Shui Tips

1. Make sure there’s nothing blocking the front or main door. Lamp posts and trees can block the positive ‘chi’ of a home. If you enter through the garage, periodically use the front door. Don’t use harsh lighting in the garage and keep it clean. You could always open the front door and say, “Welcome energy force; Welcome life force; or Welcome chi.”

2. When you walk into your home, if the first thing you see is a ravine or backyard, this indicates ‘money’ rolling away. Hang a picture on a wall or door that symbolizes abundance to you.

3. Water is a well known symbol of prosperity. Hang paintings or pictures of water, eight or nine fish (Koi), a fountain, or sailing ships (sailing into port aka your ship is coming in) around your home. You may consider purchasing a fountain (instead of hanging a painting or picture) for your home or home office.

4. Make sure your wallet is clean. Buy a new one if yours is worn out. Otherwise, clean out your wallet and place abundant affirmations in it.

5. Keep the toilet lid down and close bathroom doors. The idea is that water goes down the drain. Closing lids and doors prevents this. Make your bathroom(s) feel abundant by placing candles and other items that symbolize abundance to you. Choose the ‘right’ paint color for your bathroom(s).

6. When you buy a home ask “why” the home owners are selling. If they’re losing money, you may not want to buy the home. Also, make sure stairs don’t face the door. This symbolizes ‘money going out the door’ and you don’t want this. As mentioned before, be mindful of trees and or lamp posts in front of the house. These can block good energy. Light fixtures above the front/main door are to be clean and work properly.

Note: in the Japanese culture, the number four is a bad omen. Use your own feelings and intuition about this if the street name and or address has the number four in the beginning, middle, or end. To some, the ‘number four’ is an angelic number.

7. Put a mirror behind the burners of your stove because this doubles them. Keep burners clean. When you clean them, have the intention to create a space for more abundance to flow to you.

8. As you water a plant say the following, “As I water this plant, more abundance flows to me.”

9. Buy objects that were owned by an abundant person. If you go antiquing ask questions about objects and their owners; energy could still be attached.

10. Get to know the energy map of your home. However, your belief is most important than the system you use such as Three Door Gate, Compass School, and others.

  • Three Door Gate involves the farthest left-hand corner (area) of your home. You could place a fountain or picture of water in that space. Some people will place a statue of a three toad frog in this area, but you could use anything that symbolizes abundance to you.
  • Compass School involves the southeast area of your home. Remember, every room and area of your home has energy.

Other tips

  • Give thanks for everything you have, especially clean water. It’s essential to our bodies; you’re fortunate if you have an abundance of clean water.
  • Hold the intention for abundance. The more you receive, the more you can give to your favorite causes, charities, etc.
  • Say the following, “May the spirits of the four directions bring abundance, health, wealth, and prosperity into this home and to the people who live here.” Denise Linn

My Review of WEN Hair Care Created by Chaz Dean

Hair Before Using WEN by Chaz Dean

This review is based on my experience with WEN Hair Care by Chaz Dean. I was not paid to write this review.

I started using WEN on April 7, 2011 and can’t believe the change in my hair. As you can see my hair before using WEN Sweet Almond Mint Cleansing Conditioner (original scent) looked like crap! Now my hair is thicker, fuller, and shinier; it’s more manageable, and my ends have healed. The bonus is my natural wave came back. I haven’t seen my natural wave since I was a little girl! Perhaps you tried WEN and didn’t like the product for a number of reasons. Please note: I wasn’t with you when (no pun intended) you used the product.

Even when I spend a lot of money at the hair salon, my hair never looks super healthy. Sure it looks all right, but it could be shinier, thicker, and fuller. I’ve used high and low end moisturizing shampoos and conditioners; mostly high end than low end. I’ve also used a leave-in heat protector and a soy based detangler along with styling products. Ironically, the detangler didn’t detangle my hair, and the heat protector didn’t do anything for my hair. My hair would break off, and I would look at my brush and sigh. I was getting sick and tired of spending a ton of money on hair products that weren’t helping my hair. After three years, I took the plunge and ordered WEN from QVC. Why did it take me so long? Like you, I read reviews and was skeptical. The only way I’d know if WEN really worked was if I bought and tried it. Thank God I did! I’m totally grateful that my hair looks and feels good.

How to use WEN

1. Please read all instructions before using WEN. The process is as follows, 1) Wet hair; 2) Use the specified number of pumps for your hair length or what you believe is necessary; 3) Massage WEN into your hair and leave on 3-5 minutes (no different from conditioning your hair); 4) Thoroughly rinse your hair; and 5) Squeeze the excess water from your hair and apply WEN to your wet hair. Wrap your hair in a towel, hair turban, or use paper towels to dry your hair.

2. Comb your hair. Your comb will glide through your hair. My hair always tangled, but now I comb my hair with ease.

3. Use your styling products or WEN Styling Cream. Style your hair or allow your hair to air dry. I style my hair. The only time I allow it to air dry is if I’m not going out.

Your own personal experience with WEN may differ from mine, but I love using WEN and won’t go back to using shampoo, conditioner, detangler, and heat protector. I won’t, however, give up my Moroccanoil and Moroccanoil Hairspray. I love these products and refuse to part with them!

I’m saving a lot of money thanks to WEN. And, the product smells good. If you order from QVC, you can purchase new scents such as Cucumber Aloe, Fig, Lavender, Pomegranate, and Tea Tree. Of course, Sweet Almond Mint is still available. As far as I’m concerned, Chaz is a “hair” miracle worker. My mom and sister use the Sweet Almond Mint and have noticed a difference in their hair. My mom had surgery a few years ago, and the anesthetic left her hair damaged and dry. Thanks to WEN, it’s now manageable and shiny. She feels good about her hair and so can you!

Is your new hairstyle and color causing friction?

Some may like it, some may not. In the end, it does not matter what these people think. In fact, you may be surprised that your hair receives more air time than the U.S.’s stimulus package!

Getting a new hairstyle and color is very liberating. Just be prepared for people to give you their opinions — not once, but twice! Napoleon Hill was right when he said that opinions are the cheapest commodities. What matters is that you are happy with your new look.

Opinions not welcomed

People love to give their opinions. Do not let this deter you from changing your hairstyle and color. Remember, it’s your hair — it’s only hair. Furthermore, Hollywood actors and actresses constantly change their hair styles. If they want a major role in a movie, they’ll be more than happy to change their hair.

Isn’t it amazing that people will devote so much time to telling you they how you feel about your new hairstyle and color. It’s not like you heard them the first time. They probably mean well or they have nothing else to do. Accept their opinion and move forward with your life. After all, you paid for it; you’re the one who better be happy with it.

Model behavior

Tyra Banks of America’s Next Top Model is famous for her makeovers on the show. Some of the girls are happy with them, while others carry-on like a banshee. Tyra reminds the girls that if that want to make it in the modeling world, they may have to change their look. This is a great lesson. Unfortunately, not every girl sees it that way.

The lesson

Even though you could care-a-less, people will spew their opinions about your new look. For some reason, they may feel compelled to tell you a couple of times how much they like you better as a blond, red head, or brunette — with or without highlights. You may be tempted to get upset about this and you have every right to because it’s your hair. But, it’s not worth it. Your thoughts and energy can be spent elsewhere.

Are there people in your life who feel compelled to tell you over and over that they like you better as a blond, red head, or brunette? How did you handle it?
