Always listen to your Gramma! At least, that’s the advice Feng Shui artist, Reiki healer and author Chantal Monte gives us in this sweet and wise little red book. Chantal’s very own grandmother taught her the ways of Feng Shui in their native Indonesia, and now the author shares with us the sage advice of “the art of placement.”

Filled with brief, but profound sayings and intents, this book shows the reader how to live a better life by living in harmony with the earth’s elements and forces. Every object has its proper placement, and has a secret significance in your life, according to the author.

The haiku-like wisdom runs the gamut from practical to folksy. Some examples that really resonated with me include these:

  • Negative things come in threes. Positive things come in twos.
  • When you take from the earth, you have to give back.
  • Move twenty-seven things in your home and your life will change.
Others are a little more detailed, but all provide food for thought and the opportunity to do some small thing around the home or garden to realign with nature’s own harmonies.

Grandmother’s Feng Shui Wisdom is a lovely gift for yourself or someone special, and the advice in this special little book will long outlive any of us. After all, grandmothers know best.
