(20) Alcohol Abuse (Feng Shui Tip of the Day)

If you or anyone you know struggles with alcohol addiction, then Feng Shui has a special step to addendum the other 12 that you might be imbibing these days. Of course, this cure is strictly an energetic one that complements any other therapies that one might need to get and stay sober. Take any lamp and place it in the 'Family/Friends' area on the main floor. Change the bulb to reflect the highest wattage it can handle. Now get a photo of the person who is working to get clean and put that in a wooden frame. Position the framed photo so that it receives light from the lamp in the family area. Turn this lamp on for at least 3 hours a day or leave this love light burning for as long as you'd like inside each 24-hour period. Do this for at least 27 days to send energy, love and light to the one who needs it most.


(21) Spell (Incantation) for the Healing of Stress-Related Illness (Rae Beth)

By the five elements,
let him be well.
By the wind,
well in thought, well in mind.
By sunlight,
make his will bright.
By water that’s clear,
free his heart of fear.
By sacred ground,
make his body sound.
By the spirit in all,
his whole self, whole.
Let the healing spirits of harmony 
restore him, So May It Be.
