I ‘m taking a page from the Saratoga Traveler and today I will write about something that continues to haunt me. Everything in our environment contributes to our Feng Shui. It isn’t just about mirrors and wind-chimes ~ it’s about how we live our lives especially in regard to the creatures entrusted to our care. Animals that are neglected ~ dirty ~ ignored ~ even if they aren’t actually abused, create bad Feng Shui and therefore bad luck.
Even if you are not an animal lover and I realize that there are good people who do not share my love for animals. If you have brought an animal into your environment you must do everything you possibly can to make sure that it is treated by all as a valued member of your family. If you ignore this ~ you can hang all the Feng Shui cures that you want and still you will not create good luck. So please ~ a pet is not an impulse acquisition. Make sure that you can afford to care for it and that you have the time to provide it with a happy, stimulating life ~ not tied out in the backyard.
Dogs provide Yang energy and Cats provide Yin energy ~ a perfect balance of Yin and Yang. Well-cared for Happy Pets inject good energy into a home.
I have followed the Michael Vick story since it was first made public. I am shocked how cavalier some people seem to be about his crimes. This was not a onetime act of bad judgment~ these were cruel and inhuman acts of rage inflicted upon helpless dogs. He killed dogs with his bare hands because they lost a fight. He poured water on dogs and electrocuted them with jumper cables. He served what I consider a short sentence ~ part of it in his mansion. This week he has been signed by the Philadelphia Eagles and will go back to playing football. People feel that he deserves a second chance. It will take a lot to convince me that he is reformed.
You can’t turn away from animal abuse ~ if it’s in your home ~ on your street ~ in your town, you will be affected by its negative Feng Shui. So be vigilant and speak up if you see something suspicious. Your own luck depends upon it.
“The greatness of a
nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its
animals are treated.”
