Carole Shashona Spring Blog

Welcome to my monthly Blog, and think of me as your personal energy Lifestyle Coach, let’s begin.

My name is Carole Shashona; I am a twice ordained Master in the Art of Feng Shui. Many of you know the ancient Asian philosophy of creating healing environment through the placement of objects, art, and accessories, to achieve architectural balance. However, Feng Shui is much more than this, and after decades of practice and sharpening my insight, I have adapted this philosophy to create an intentional style and design I call metastylist.

Metastyling is about you and how you can boost and learn to enhance positive energy with personal fashion style. This application alleviates styling concerns with color, function, and focused attention to enhance personal Health, Beauty, and Prosperity. Inclusive is the enhanced awareness of jewelry composition, colors, and meditation for personal energy to promote alignment and balance both physically and spiritually.

Every season I will help you to focus on fashion therapy for yourself with special attention to color enhancements in your wardrobe with emphasis on color, scent, and accessories. People have not associated attitude, behavior, and mood with color and energy. Consider the current preoccupation with green which immediately signals the environment, conservation, and wellness. I have been trained to teach how you can benefit with specific colors and stones to specific energy, a vibration similar to music, to creating body alignment and fashion wellness.

Each range of hues are appropriate to wear for different situations; I will help you to match your colors with your ambitions and goals as well as the function of the situation you may want to control. You will enhance your personal energy with accessories with energy embodied in different colors in stones so that you will enrich your life with joyful benefits. Enjoy visiting my websites and may every day bring you Love and Light.

Blessings,

Carole


Whistle While You Walk

How Nature Nurtures you. This Spring, walk. Take the time to take a walk in the park, beach, or city sidewalks. Or walk to your gym to notice the world around you. A little reminder from me I recommend to wear looser garments or that new flowing skirt to boost your energy with fun leaf and floral motifs. Notice and be conscious when you walk how you will breathe air into your lungs helping to stimulate the new flow of energy to your life. Think when you inhale of new opportunities that you wish to create and when you exhale let go of the fear and negativity. This will help you “breathe” in this new Spring season.

Fire Rooster Home Tip

spring blog 5The rooster’s personality is comfortable with the elements of bamboo, wicker and terra cotta tile. You too can enjoy a tad of the rooster’s personality by bringing the outdoors in and painting the walls with hues of blue and white. Cover the lounge chairs in prints of red or solid and paint the ceilings a pale blue tone. Sisal flooring with patterns of green and blue add to the drama as the rooster like to strut his/her stuff.

Carole Shashona tip:

Check to see the East direction in your home or office. In the fire rooster year avoid the element of fire in this zone. There shouldn't be candles, a fireplace, or fire pit placed in this area.

Cure- Add a mirror above the mantle or a water feature to add the right touch!
