 Feng Shui Motivational Monday: Brand New Me There are times in all of our lives where we drift and lose connection to our true selves.  When this happens, confusion about who you are, what you need to accomplish during your lifetime become smeared.  In other words, depression sets in and you forget about the divine right of personal power that has be given to you.  But, once awareness in the lack of self respect and value allowed to unfold in your life is brought to your attention and action is taken to regain your spirits strength, you will overcome anything.  Alicia Keys is a true musician and poet who truly sings from the heart and sends amazing messages of inspiration and empowerment.  I had the honor and pleasure of seeing her perform in person at the Barclays Center this past Fri...

Exploring Brooklyn New York with Feng Shui Manhattan: Barclays Center Welcome to the Barclays Center in Brooklyn New York If you looking for something to check out in Brooklyn NY this should be on your list of sports/concert arenas to visit.  The center is so easy to navigate, either you can take the LIRR from Long Island to the Atlantic Terminal in Brooklyn which is literally across the street from the center or if located in Manhattan already, hope onto 2,3,4,5, subway trains as to name a few options. Having "Feng Shui eyes" I'm always on the outlook for interesting designs and insights with the various people and environments I encounter.  I have to say, the design of the Barclay Center mirrors that of Feng Shui inspiration very much. Curved designs, especially due to the location of...

Being born in Brooklyn, NY I am used to certain things...for starters; crowded train stations, a vibrant night life and an assortment of different people from all walks of life everytime I leave the house.  Brooklyn is so diverse there is never a dull moment and if you visit you will see what I mean. Some of things I remember the most is that hot buttered bagel and a french vanilla coffee in the morning before I get the day started or that greasy slice of Pizza when I am trying to squeeze lunch in before meetings. Either way there is no place like home #BrooklynLove.  Now there are so many reasons why one would want to stay and live in Brooklyn forever but some of the reasons why many people leave is they want more space, less crowds, better schools, beautiful homes but still want acce...

By Luke Constantino 11/14/2012     What does the word “cobble” mean? Cobble Hill is one of the oldest neighborhoods in Brooklyn, just south of Brooklyn Heights and north of Carroll Gardens; its name was derived from all the cobblestones left here from the ships that used them as ballast. Cobblestone ballasts kept large ships (which had large sails back in the 1600’s) from tipping over and gave them an even keel. Back then, South Brooklyn was a major shipping port.   The beautiful homes Cobble Hill has some of the most beautiful homes in NYC, dating back to the mid 1800’s. Most of the homes here are designated as historical landmarks. There are a few different influences here: Romanesque, Greek, Gothic, Queen Anne and French structures. The tree lined streets here are some of the most be...

Thankful Thursday: It's a Beautiful Life by Feng Shui Manhattan NY This has been a devastating start to the week for many but you should be thankful. Why? Because on some level you have grown or you are about to.  Unfortunately, for many it takes a great disaster or loss for use to be thankful and progress in life. It becomes a true reminder with all that we are blessed with. We all have struggles in our lives to some degree and the repeating lesson, learning to Just Let Go.  But, during times like this you can look inward and refocus your attention on what matters.  To many of us disregard the simplicity of life.  If you have been blessed and spared with Hurricane Sandy, offer a helping hand to friends, family and others in need.  The core essence of humans is to help each other progre...

Brooklyn Architecture produces Beautiful Energy in the Neighborhood After a Feng Shui consultation in Brooklyn New York I decided to drive around and check out the local neighborhood.  I could not believe my eyes when driving off the the main busy streets of Brooklyn to see beautiful Colonial and Victorian styled homes. The colors painted onto the houses were amazing and made me smile the way during my small personal tour inside this hidden treasure of Brooklyn NY.
