Feng Shui – An Introduction - May 2012
Feng Shui has been in practice in China for over five thousand years.
The knowledge was handed down through generations of Feng Shui Masters. Originally, the Feng Shui Masters were retained exclusively for the Emperors, the rich and ruling classes. The knowledge was made public by a book written by Master Jiang during the Qing Dynasty.
Therefore, for the past 600 years until today, the common people has also enjoyed the benefits of good Feng Shui. Feng Shui is all about the balance of Yin and Yang, and Wuxing - the different phases of the Five Elements - Water, Wood, Fire, Earth and Metal, which all originated from the teachings of the Yijing (I Ching). The study of Feng Shui is to examine our environment – our living and working spaces, so that we can improve on our Earth Luck - by tapping into various types of Qi (Chi), in accordance with our own personal Qi.
When we are productive in what we do, we can generate Wealth - in both the physical and spiritual sense, which can also result in good Health - in love, relationship and demeanour. Each month, we will be looking at ways you can introduce Feng Shui into your life.

|Did you know that a serving of juice is just 4-6 ounces? This amount of 100% fruit juice is generally equivalent to a piece of fresh fruit. While juices are high in vitamins and minerals, large portions contribute a lot of calories to your diet. Most people need 2-5 servings of fruit and/or 100% juice per day. Drink water, not juice, to quench your thirst. Eating whole pieces of fruit adds additional fiber to your diet.|

|Feeling that we are respected and valued as individuals is a very important and necessary part of all areas of our lives (home, work, socially).

|Summer Corn and White Bean Soup|
Description: This quick, fiber-packed soup is a terrific way to use fresh corn. Add a slight kick with a sprinkle of Monterey Jack cheese with jalapeno peppers just before serving. When possible try to find non-GMO corn. With over 80% of the corn grown in the north America is genetically modified, and biotechnology companies phasing out non-GMO corn seed varieties, American farmers have fewer choices for finding non-GMO seeds to grow. GMO means genetically modified organism, which is a novel organism created by scientists when they genetically modify or engineer food plants. Scientists have cited many health and environmental risks with genetically modified (GM) foods. As a result of these risks, many people in the United States, Canada, Europe, Japan, and other nations are demanding non-genetically modified (non-GMO) foods. Visit your local farmers markets or health store and look for non-GMo corn.
Corn and beans are high in fiber. Dietary fibers are found naturally in the plants that we eat. They are parts of plant that do not break down in our stomachs, and instead pass through our system undigested. All dietary fibers are either soluble or insoluble. Both types of fiber are equally important for health, digestion, and preventing conditions such as heart disease, diabetes, obesity, diverticulitis, and constipation.
