There is no one set response to this question. There are many variables to why a home may not be selling. Feng Shui Experts will take the time to review the possible causes from a energetic perspective to help provide unique insights into why a home has not budged for 'x' amount of years. Speaking from my own experiences, I have come to find interesting links to why a home sells faster vs not.1. The unconscious emotional attachment of the current homeowner's to their space can prevent sales. This could be an indication they may not be willing to let go, just yet. Believe it or not, this can impact a sale from progressing forward. 2. The land formation may not be favorable. The ideal land plot in feng shui is suggested to be in the shape of a square or rectangle. These shapes represent a...

The Art of Gift Giving by Laura Cerrano Feng Shui Consultant When you give a gift, give it from the heart and do not expect anything in return. A gift is about love and compassion.  The Art of Gift Giving is a powerful tool and a great way to help lift a persons spirit. Go that extra mile to visit their favorite store to purchase a gift.  Write a poem, create the piece of artwork or even surprise them to a special brunch or dinner.  Perhaps, just show up with something silly and share some laughs.  Or simply be in the moment with them. If you give a gift and in some way you know it's going to benefit you weather it be with attention (stroking the ego) or to help bribe your way to into or out of some situation, than you may not understand what it means to give a gift.  If that is the cas...

Motivational Monday Wake up with a Smile by Feng Shui NYC consultant It's so simple and easy to do, wake up with a smile and start your day off on the right foot.  Studies show those who start the day off with a positive attitude can deflect negative situations much easier.  Monday's are seen as the "Debi downer" days of the week because it's back to work.  Try and not perceive Monday in that way, view Monday as the start to another week of opportunities, connecting with co-worker friends and so on.

We're only a month into the winter months in Brookville and Oyster Bay area and officially have two more months to go and we have had enough of the snow.   I'm tired of the freezing cold and the constant snow.  I see we'll have more snow on Tuesday and Wednesday.   I look out the window and I see my roses are all covered with snow.  Will they be fine?  Yes, they will.  It's the freezing and thawing that are not good for them.  We are in the middle of winter and since activities outside are not on our agenda for a while, it is the perfect time to plan our rose garden and order some roses.  If you are getting garden catalogs in the mail, you can start browsing through them.  Start thinking of what rose plants to buy. But where can you buy them?    I'm putting a list below of Top 10 mail o...

      I stumbled upon the Legend of the Christmas Tree while going through boxes of old Christmas Cards.  Today, the Christmas tree is the highlight of our Christmas festivities.  Topped with a star, and adorned with lights and ornaments, it is a part of the beauty and meaning of the Christmas season. How did the Christmas tree come to play such an important part in the observance of Christmas?  There is a legend that comes down to us from the early days of Christianity in England.  One of those helping to spread Chriatianity among the Druids was a monk named Wilfred (later Saint Wilfred).  One day, surrounded by a group of his converts, he struck down a huge Oak tree, which, in the Druid religion, was an object of worship.  As the Oak tree fell to the ground, it split into four pieces,...

      ROSE OF THE MONTH: "Rosa foetida bicolor" - a.k.a. "Austrian Copper" Classification - Species Introduction - Before 1590 Not until late nineteenth century when a French breeder named Pernet-Ducher introduced Rosa foetida persiana as a pollen parent to breed the first yellow and orange colored large-flowered rose called ‘Soleil d'Or' did gardeners take notice of this rose coloration. That was a significant event. Austrian Copper is a sport of Rosa foetida that has been cultivated as early as the 12th century in the Arab world. It is native to Iran and Afghanistan and it is not Austrian inspite of its name. It has single blossoms, 2" in diameter of bright coppery red with yellow reverse and bright yellow stamens. Its color is eye catching. The rose is so beautiful when the sun is sh...

Sellers who are holding off to list their homes in Brookville, NY this fall should know why they should sell their home in Brookville, NY this fall  •1.       Mortgage rates are still historically low this fall •2.       Serious buyers buy at any time. •3.       Not all buyers have school age children.  •4.       Out of school and back to school disruptions are over and people are back to their routine & focusing on their long term goals. •5.       The end of the summer is not the end of the buying season.  As a matter of fact, I have gotten more calls to see homes now than in the summer months.  •6.       Buyers "think" they have less competition at this time but you can sell at a good price because of competition from "serious" buyers. •7.       People like to take drives in the fall...

Parentage: (‘George Dickson' x ‘Souvenir de Claudius Pernet') x (‘Joanna Hill' x ‘Chas. P. Kilham') x ‘Margaret McGredy'.  Hybridized by the French hybridizer Francis Meilland in the late 1930s, and introduced by Conard-Pyle Co., West Grove, PA. in 1945.              The rose that is called ‘Peace' in the United States and Great Britain is called ‘Mme Antoine Meilland' in France, ‘Gioia' in Italy and ‘Gloria Dei' in Germany.  ‘Peace' is one of the most famous roses of the century if not of all times.  It is one of the few modern roses surrounded by legend and myth.             One story goes that it was hybridized in France in the last years before World War II, and escaped as unnamed cuttings in the last American diplomatic bag to leave Paris as World War II began.  Recognized as a wi...
