“It’s a beautiful day at Mountain Air.” That’s the traditional greeting at this unique private community in Western North Carolina, and it’s difficult to argue with the sentiment. Nestled atop Slickrock Mountain at nearly 5,000 feet, Mountain Air combines exquisite natural beauty with a gracious lifestyle accentuated by an energetic club offering unparalleled amenities, as well as the highest private runway east of the Mississippi. And the true long-range mountain views and delightful temperatures are difficult to top. But it’s another element that truly sets Mountain Air apart. “The camaraderie and welcoming spirit shared by the people here is remarkable,” explains a long-time owner and club member. “You can immediately feel the sense of community and respect for the natural setting, as well as a family orientation that’s very different from many private clubs. This is a laid-back, unpretentious place that attracts people from around the country seeking a peaceful mountain retreat.” In essence, this is a mature, multi-generational community that’s member-owned and firmly established, with fully complete and meticulously maintained infrastructure and amenities. Visitors often point out the quality of the roads, which sweep gently upward, and the attention to detail found in the lush landscaping and general care of the property that encompasses more than 500 acres. The 24/7 security further adds to the peace of mind. The heart of Mountain Air is Slickrock Village Green, with an award-winning clubhouse that serves as the central gathering spot for residents and offers farm-to-table dining. Steps away are the golf shop, a lodge offering guest suites and a market that stocks the necessities. Just across the putting green is Chautauqua, which houses a fitness center and spa, movie theater, game room, and crafts and activities center for children. Orville & Wilbur’s, an open-air bar and grill, is a favored spot to eat, drink and enjoy spectacular sunsets. Adding to the community’s fun factor is a heated pool, tennis courts and a highly regarded mountaintop golf course designed continued on page 16 Spring 2018 | Fine Homes & Design 15


is quaint Burnsville, offering pleasant small-town access to shopping, supplies and services. Yancey County, which is home to Mountain Air, offers one of Western North Carolina’s most unspoiled settings. With the state’s highest average elevation, it has six of the tallest peaks east of the Mississippi, including Mount Mitchell, which soars to 6,684 feet. to capitalize on granite outcroppings and verdant forest, leading Links Magazine to describe it as “one of the most dramatic and naturally conceived courses in the country.” Another distinctive feature of Mountain Air is the Outdoor Discovery Center staffed by a full-time naturalist who coordinates a wealth of year-round nature-based activities on the mountain and outside the gate. The center’s team helps arrange fly-fishing, whitewater rafting, kayaking, zip-lining, bird and wildlife watching, horseback riding, camping and sporting clays. Families also explore nature on over six miles of hiking trails and within the sanctuary of six parks. Of course, pilots and their families appreciate the ease of access provided by the 2,875-foot runway on top of the mountain, making this a true fly-in community. Depending on the type of aircraft, most locations in the eastern United States are no more than three hours away. This convenience provides flexible work and travel opportunities. “We love being able to leave our home in Florida and land a couple of hours later at Mountain Air for a long weekend,” says one resident pilot. “It’s particularly nice when it’s stifling and hot to find yourself quickly enjoying cool mountain temperatures and low humidity, along with great friends.” Certainly one of the key attributes of Mountain Air is the seclusion that makes it a quiet and peaceful spot for relaxation and decompression. But it’s also nice to be close to the action when you’re ready for art, music and entertainment, cultural activities, dining, outdoor activities and more. Mountain Air is an easy 30-minute drive from Asheville, the eclectic city that has something for virtually everyone and has become one of North Carolina’s bestknown destinations. Just minutes away from Mountain Air 16 Fine Homes & Design | Spring 2018

In addition, Yancey and neighboring Mitchell County have more working artisans and studios than any other location in North Carolina. Outdoor events and festivals held throughout the year highlight the area’s arts, crafts and music. One of the benefits of a well-established community is the selection of available homes and condominiums. The move-in convenience of an existing property makes embracing the Mountain Air lifestyle almost effortless. Homes in varying sizes and styles are beautifully sited around the mountain, while condominiums offer easy living with virtually every aspect of maintenance taken care of by active property owners associations. And there also are home sites for the discerning individual desiring to build that custom mountain getaway. Architectural standards in place since the community’s founding have ensured that homes respect the natural settings, and reflect styles and finishes in keeping with mountain traditions, particularly stone and natural woods. One distinct advantage of virtually every property having been designed to maximize the amazing vistas are the open and light-filled living areas that enhance contemporary lifestyles. Another key element is the attention to outdoor spaces that enables residents to embrace the surrounding beauty -- porches with outdoor stone fireplaces are particularly popular. Plus, prices at varying levels make life at Mountain Air enticing and readily accessible, while Mountain Air Country Club offers membership options to satisfy virtually any desire. “This is truly a special place,” says another member. “Virtually everyone who comes here is impressed by the natural beauty, the friendly people, the easy lifestyle, and the charm and quality of the homes. And while there’s always plenty to do, this also is a tranquil refuge where you can relax, decompress and just relish the moment.”


Gracious Mountain Living Amid Natural Splendor Welcome to Mountain Air, a beautiful and unique private community offering a gracious lifestyle in an unparalleled natural setting. Select from beautiful homes and condominiums, and enjoy club amenities that include mountaintop golf, tennis, outdoor recreation, dining, wellness programs and a private runway.

Think Globally, Invest Locally:

A Sustainable Real Estate Investment in Marshall By Cheri B. Torres, Ph.D and Colleen Watson Asheville and Western North Carolina are known for a number of things: beauty, food, beer, music, and people. Visitors are flocking here in record numbers and in recent years many more people have decided to call this home. The beauty of this area is readily apparent. What also sets us apart is our support of local businesses, our passion for preservation and our focus on sustainability and quality of life. Today, it’s more important than ever to continue and indeed, increase that focus. More and more communities are exploring public/private investment structures that enable people to invest their money in local, income producing investments instead of the stock market. The benefits are many. Funding needed to support sustainable municipal activities is raised without taxation. Investments and proceeds from those invest32 Fine Homes & Design | Spring 2018

ments stay primarily local, fueling the local economy. Investing locally means people have a vested interest in the success of their investment; they stay involved and supportive. And finally, being satisfied with a reasonable return on investment keeps the cost of living in an area down for everyone. Are there reasons for you to consider investing locally? In addition to those above, here are some other reasons to consider. The world as we know it is changing faster than we can imagine. There is much evidence that some systems are in decline and if not changed, they will collapse. For those of us over 60, our fears are fueled by threats to reduce or eliminate social security, Medicare/ Medicaid and many social services and environmental programs. The stock market appears stable one minute and volatile the next, which is stress-inducing at

best for those who are invested in it. In the face of this uncertainty and ambiguity, local investments that provide an on-going ROI are stable and tend to generate a consistent income. In addition to care and commitment to one’s community, it is the primary financial reason to make such local investments. If you’re committed to Western North Carolina and want to help sustain the quality of life that brings so many people to the area, you may want to consider investing locally. Sustainable Real Estate Investment is one of those options. Such investments are made for income as well as to enhance environmental, social, and economic societal impact. Is Sustainable Real Estate Investment aligned with your values? If the following criteria resonate with you, then you’re a candidate for such investments:  Consistent financial performance while contributing to advancements in social, economic, environmental and governance practices.  Providing important societal or environmental benefits.

 Managing risk and fulfilling fiduciary duties.  Solid financial performance over the long run. If you’re aligned, read on! An exciting sustainable real estate investment opportunity has opened up in Marshall, NC. This historic town in Madison County is a short distance from Asheville and grew up alongside the beautiful French Broad River. Main Street houses artists’ studios and galleries, restaurants, music venues, and other local shops. On the National Register of Historic Places, 90 S. Main Street is a 7640 square foot building with an additional 3900 square feet of basement space. It is slated to become a central hub in downtown Marshall. Michael Torres, retired Genetics Professor and Carroll Hauptle, a retired lawyer have a two-fold agenda for this building. The first is to model a sustainable real estate collective that will own the building. Michael and Carroll believe there is something valuable about shared ownership. They are both investors, and they are continued on page 34 Spring 2018 | Fine Homes & Design 33

looking for like-minded people interested in joining them in providing space for social profit ventures. Social profit organizations are those whose missions focus on people, place and planet; most of the time these are nonprofit organizations. They envision this building will offer rental property to artists, healers, and other social profit organizations. The LLC that owns the building will have a property manager. There are already people lined up to rent space. The second part of the plan will see the main floor of 90 S. Main rented by NexGen Legacy, an incubator and accelerator for social profit organizations formed by Michael and Carroll.

This nonprofit will bring together retired professionals with expertise in diverse fields to support up and coming social profit organizations determined to positively influence quality of life, economic well-being, and the environment in WNC. In addition to providing support for those starting or accelerating social profit organizations, NexGen Legacy will host events, conferences, and a gallery space for local artists. For the remainder of the building, Michael and Carroll imagine artist studios, high speed internet and very hip co-working space, small offices, and meeting spaces for workshops and classes, as well as other collaborative programming designed to support the success of local entrepreneurs and people who live in or visit Marshall. Their research shows high demand and low availability for office space and art studios. First things first, however. They are looking for investors interested in a solid real estate investment with a decent ROI from rental income. Several information meetings will be hosted this spring that will provide detailed information. If you’re interested in attending or simply want to learn more, please contact Michael at mysticelan@gmail.com. Michael can share all of the plans for the building. For detailed information about the investment structure, he will put you in touch with Andrew Grant, retired international banker and Investment advisor for the 90 S. Main LLC.

The time is now to incorporate Scandinavian style into decor (BPT) - As homeowners look for ways to refresh their spaces, Scandinavian style has become ever more prominent and popular among designers and interior decor experts. The clean, modern, minimalist aesthetic shows up in interiors and exteriors, from streamlined furniture to low-maintenance landscaping. Here’s how to achieve a Nordic look in your own home:

Melding indoors and out

“Slow design” and minimalist decor

Functional furniture: Storage and good looks

Perhaps the most common association with Scandinavian style is minimalist decor. Less is more when it comes to decorating, and the concept of “slow design” focuses on fewer, higher quality pieces collected over time.

Another key aspect of the Nordic style is hardworking, functional furnishings. A piece can be beautiful and also have utility - like eye-catching

Scandinavian style incorporates materials that meld indoors with outdoors - natural woods, slat walls, leather accents and greenery. “Cottage culture” architecture style draws on these influences and makes interiors feel like cozy cabins in the woods.

Scandinavian design represents a design philosophy that’s characterized by functionality, simplicity, and clean lines. continued on page ? Spring 2018 | Fine Homes & Design 55


Scandinavian Style continued from page 55 shoe racks and shelving, or built-in bed storage that creates a unique frame. Cool, natural tones and light woods in flooring Scandinavian style incorporates natural tones of whites, grays and light browns. Pale wood and whitewashed floors create a clean, spacious look. That look can be achieved with oak and maple styles, as well as wood-look tiles and laminates with wood graining. Retailers like Lumber Liquidators, who regularly publish seasonal trends reports, have an array of cool-toned flooring options to choose from, such as Dream Home X2O Misty Morning Oak, a water-resistant laminate with a soft seashell tone and realistic oak graining. If homeowners want to be on trend with Scandinavian style in their home, the key is updating with clean, modern and light-toned accents. Functional furniture will help you organize your space and efficiently use the room. Finish off the room with sunny wood grain flooring and your Nordic look is complete. 56 Fine Homes & Design |Spring 2018

SCANDINAVIAN DESIGN TRENDS Floors – Interiors typically have wooden floors, in light wood tones, in all rooms except the bathrooms. If rugs are used, they are usually limited to area rugs. Interior Surfaces –Warm woods are often used on walls, ceilings, cabinetry, and furniture. Eco-Friendly Materials – Scandinavian design principles promote eco-friendly homes with organic, sustainable building materials for flooring, walls, siding and roofing. Colors – White walls and cool blue and gray textiles are common. In some homes, brighter pops of color like yellow and orange are found in Marimekko fabrics and rugs. Accessories – This minimalist style promotes the design philosophy “less is more.” Accessories are usually scaled back to create less clutter and fewer visual distractions.

Sacred Landscapes: A New Approach to Design By Calen Rayne

During an initial meeting with a client recently, landscape designer and ornamental horticulturalist Ted Carter was given a simple directive, “give me a design with soul.” In our increasingly fast-paced, digital, mobile world, it appears that developers, architects, interior designers and landscape professionals now sense that arriving home to a more tranquil, grounded, and minimalist energy field is proving to be a welcome respite for homeowners. The days of clear-cutting potential developments to install sterile houses with new “same old look” landscapes that may not be energetically compatible with an existing underlying eco-field are fading quickly.

into a conversation with the land on new projects, and if need be, to first subtly modify existing features and, when necessary, then introduce new landscape components that will continue to maintain the overall energetic integrity of an already established eco-field.

Carter is among a handful of landscape designers and developers who have already turned that corner and seek to engage with their clients and homeowners to work with existing landscapes when possible with minimal intrusion. They are also seeking ways to enter

There is a reason people find the gardens of Kyoto in Japan and the centuries old English Gardens of Europe so peaceful. The thought and sense of purpose that went into this ancient art of placement is both calming and beautiful. Many people find themselves

60 Fine Homes & Design | Spring 2018

In ancient times, people were more concerned about the intimate relationship of human societies to their natural surroundings. Perhaps if our approach to our land and design elements is birthed from that level of intention, a message and a story unfold. This message and story nourishes the inhabitants of a home and fills them with a sense of pride and discovery.


at a loss for why these gardens and landscapes are so moving. These gardens continue to serve as subtle, yet very powerful artistic expressions centuries after they were first designed by individuals who paid particular attention to how best to bring their design into harmony with the land they worked on. Some designs, even smaller back yard installations, now incorporate various design elements from both permaculture and bio-dynamics traditions. Permaculture is a term first used by Bill Mollison in 1978, and one focus is “…the harmonious integration of the landscape with people providing their food, energy, shelter and other material and non-material needs in a sustainable way.” Bio-dynamics is “a holistic, ecological, and ethical approach to farming, gardening, food, and nutrition.” Both of these practices can contribute to a more balanced and nuanced landscape, one that is able to build on and remain consistent with an already existing eco-field while introducing a new source of nourishment for a homeowner. A recent issue of Smithsonian magazine featured German forester and author Peter Wohlieben, known

as a “tree-whisperer.” His book, The Hidden Life of Trees: What They Feel, How They Communicate, has reached best seller lists in a dozen countries, including the United States and Canada. Wohlieben believes that trees communicate with each other, but there are others who believe the entire plant kingdom is involved in an ongoing conversation. Therefore it is important that a home is surrounded by a landscape that speaks to, informs, and nourishes its various components, and the home’s occupants. We know we can positively heal and transform our landscapes, each other, and our planet by the thoughts we choose to think and the ways in which we put those thoughts into action. In 1957, Hugh Everett III discussed parallel universes and something he called “choice points”. A “choice-point” is a moment in time that offers an opportunity to change the course of events. Conditions arise that create a path between “business as usual” along our current path, and a new path leading to new outcomes. A choice point is like a bridge making it possible to be on one path, and then change course completely to embrace a new path leading to a different outcome. A choice point

Spring 2018 | Fine Homes & Design 61


presents itself when one becomes aware of a spiritual imbalance and visualizes a path to bring harmony to the dissonance. We are at a choice-point with regard to landscape design. Increasingly we want to commune with nature, to restore a sense of connection and balance in our lives. We want our children to again feel a connection to a larger energetic presence in nature. Therefore many homeowners are looking for more interactive landscapes around their home, and seem less likely to accept a bland design with the same old plants dropped into generic templates. In his 1873 book, Feng-ShuiThe Science of Sacred Landscapes in Old China, Ernest Eitel explains that “feng-shui, in its wider sense, stands for the relations to the surrounding nature, the influence of the landscape on the beauty of the buildings, and the happiness of the occupants.” And noted author Thomas Berry offers this advice: “Our best procedure might be to consider that we need not a human answer to an earth problem, but an earth answer to an earth problem. The earth will solve its problems, and possibly our own, if we let the earth function in its own ways. We need only listen to what the earth is telling us.” By listening to the earth, we can bring balance and harmony to our landscape designs, and in doing so, provide a foundation for a more balanced and harmonious lifestyle. As our world becomes over-stimulated by an endless frenzy of social media and technology, in essence, the future of landscape design might lean toward a minimalist look and feel. Powerful, yet clean and uncomplicated. This might bring about a creative point of difference, and open new avenues of conversation, between you and your neighbors. Elements of this new energetic expression, which include a focus on the simplicity and beauty of our existing natural environment, are included in what Ted and his team refer to as Sacred Landscapes.

Top Trends to Inspire Your Outdoor Living (BPT) - Outdoor living spaces rank first among special function rooms desired by consumers, according to the American Institute for Architects, and so homeowners are expected to be going all-in for the outdoors in 2018. Trex Company, a maker of premium decking and railing, has gleaned insights from contractors, homeowners and industry experts to compile the following outdoor living trends that will dominate this year:

Year-round enjoyment Among the biggest trends is a shift away from seasonality as consumers adopt more of a yearround mindset, no longer restricting outdoor living to spring and summer. Thanks to new high-performance materials and innovative design approaches, homeowners everywhere are transforming their outdoor spaces into multi-seasonal extensions of their homes. For example, Trex contractors have reported an uptick in requests for its RainEscape deck drainage system by clients looking to add multi-seasonal living space underneath an elevated deck.

Minimal maintenance, maximum enjoyment Just because people are spending more time 66 Fine Homes & Design | Spring 2018


outdoors doesn’t mean they’re willing to put in extra hours for upkeep. In fact, high-maintenance materials like wood are seeing a decrease in demand as people are opting for offerings that deliver better performance and sustainability. Unlike wood, high-performance composites resist fading, staining, scratching and mold - and won’t rot, warp, crack or splinter. No sanding, staining or painting is required, and food and drink spills wash off easily with just soap and water.

Comfy cozy Among the hottest design influences right now is “hygge” (pronounced hoo-gah) - the Scandinavian term for a feeling of coziness and comfort. This year, outdoor spaces will beckon homeowners and their guests to relax and rejuvenate with hygge-inspired accents, from plush cushions and throws to protective pergolas, cozy warming features and outdoor lighting.

Residential goes commercial While railing matched to the decking remains popular, an increasing number of homeowners are

taking advantage of the complementary decking and railing pairings afforded by new railing materials in modern, metal finishes, as well as sleek designs inspired by commercial architecture. More homeowners are inspired by outdoor spaces they find in commercial settings, such as hotels and urban rooftops, and want to replicate those looks in their homes. A prime example of this commercial-to-residential trend is the growing popularity of horizontal railings such as rod rail - a sleek, industrial look that’s ideal for optimizing a panoramic view. continued on page 68 Spring 2018 | Fine Homes & Design 67

Hide and chic With the increased usage of outdoor living spaces comes higher demand for chic decor and privacy. An easy design trick that adds personal style and functionality, lattice panels are perfect for enhancing privacy and concealing storage areas or unsightly views. With styles ranging from romantic to deco, lattice panels can be integrated into any outdoor area and applied to structures such as arbors, trellises and gazebos, or used as decorative wainscoting or deck skirting.

Fun and games Kids are not the only ones who enjoy playing outside. Outdoor play spaces for all ages are on the rise, including everything from swimming pools and embedded sandboxes to regulation cornhole courts, horseshoe pits and dedicated spaces for volleyball, badminton and bocce ball.

Beyond yard games, electronics manufacturers now offer televisions and entertainment systems specifically designed for the outdoors, taking into consideration differences in lighting and outdoor acoustics. Meanwhile, new storage options include durable wall-mounted television and entertainment centers that beautifully protect pricey electronics from the elements, while concealing all of the unsightly - and potentially unsafe - cords and cables.

Feng Shui Basics: Abundance Remedies By Jini Rayne

In the past few articles we have been looking at some feng shui basics and using a bagua energy map to access what is going on in various areas of our life at this time. Please go online at www.FineHomesofWNC.com to read or reread those articles if you want to refresh your memory. In this issue, we are going to look at the back left corner gua, an area associated with abundance, more commonly known as Wealth. Standing at the entrance, this back left third of your home, lot, or room actually has to do with all matters related to abundance in your life. As such, it certainly is a popular area to enhance, as most of us wish for even more good things to come our way. Following are ideas for enhancing the Wealth guas of your home and lot. Pick and choose the ones that work best for you. First, some general tips. Become clear about your intention for this area of your life. Write down what you wish to see happen. Look at the wealth gua for your home as a whole and in each room of your home. Make sure that there is no clutter in these areas and that ch’i can circulate well. Check for leaks of ch’i in the wealth gua and repair any that exist. Remember that the colors 74 Fine Homes & Design | Spring 2018

green, red, blue, and especially purple are associated with this area. Ways To Remedy Leaking or Falling Ch’i:  If your yard slopes downward in the wealth gua, bring the ch’i back up by planting tall trees in this area or position a tall light pole in the corner of the wealth area with the light aimed at the peak of the house.  If there is a window or door in the wealth area of your home or in the wealth area of the living room or bedroom of your home, reorient the leaking ch’i by hanging a crystal or wind chime in front of the window or door. You may also place plants in a window to circulate the ch’i back into the room.  If there is a bathroom in the wealth area of your home: Make sure that there are no leaking faucets and that the toilet works properly and does not run. Keep the door to the bathroom closed. Keep the lid on the toilet closed. You may also keep the sink, shower and tub drains closed or covered when not in use.


To deflect the ch’i from entering the room and exiting down the drains, you may place a large mirror on the outside of the closed bathroom door. To deflect the ch’i from exiting via the drains once it is in the room, you may hang a crystal or wind chime between the door and the drains. You may place a healthy plant (or a real looking silk plant with real soil in its container) on the back of the toilet and visualize that the water, instead of flushing away wealth ch’i, nourishes the growth of the ch’i as it nourishes the growth of the plant. If the plant blooms with a red or purple flower, it is even better. Ways To Enhance Abundance Ch’i: Hang a wind chime on the corner of the eave of your house in the wealth area. Or it can be hung inside in the wealth area if the eave is not accessible. Place a fountain in the wealth area of Place your home and visualize that wealth is flowing to you in abundance. Place a fountain at the entrance to Place your home or anywhere in front of your home to attract wealth ch’i. Place a picture of a vigorous waterfall or of fishermen hauling in full nets near the entrance of your house or in the wealth gua and visualize the abundant life you desire. Encourage good luck in your life by Encourage painting your front door bright red, an extremely auspicious color. Visualize fortunate happenings and good opportunities coming your way. Alternately, use another bright color that you enjoy and that goes with the color scheme of your house to accomplish the same goal. Aquariums are strong wealth generators combining the wealth symbolism of moving water with the life

and fertility symbolism of the fish. Place them in the wealth gua, the career gua or near the entrance to your home. Make aquariums more powerful with auspicious numbers of fish. Using eight red fish and one black fish for a total of nine is particularly good. You may also seed your aquarium with nine (or a multiple of nine) gold coins, visualizing that your wealth is like an ocean and increases daily.  Hang a fish mobile in the wealth area of your home or near the entrance to bring flowing or circulating energy to this area.  Place healthy plants in the wealth area of your home, living room or bedroom. You may place gold coins in the soil or write an affirmation of your intentions for abundance and place it in the soil of the plant(s). Each time you water your plants, visualize your intention being nourished. Place a mirror in the wealth area of your bedroom. Visualize that the mirror magnifies your wealth and draws more to you like a magnet, making your life more abundant and enjoyable. Store your money in the wealth corner. Place your savings account book or a bank with “seed money” Spring 2018 | Fine Homes & Design 75


(27 shiny coins or nine one dollar bills) in the wealth gua of your home or bedroom. Visualize the amounts of that money growing steadily. Stabilize and ground an uneven or chaotic financial situation by placing something heavy in the wealth gua of your home or yard. Large rocks or a statue work well outside. Either a statue or large plant is suitable for inside. Make the object large enough to be effective but not so large as to block ch’i circulation. As in all feng shui, smooth edges are better than pointed or jagged. Visualize a calm financial situation with a smooth flow of plenty of money and your bills being easily paid on time.  Make sure that all of the burners and ovens of your stove work properly. Be sure to use each of them on a regular basis to symbolically make use of all the sources of nourishment for you and your family.

 Reflect and symbolically double your stove’s burners with a mirror behind or beside the stove or another shiny object positioned for the same effect. Visualize that you have twice as many sources of sustenance.  Keep your stove clean (even underneath and behind it) to keep the wealth energy fresh in your life. As you clean, you can visualize any money problems or impediments being cleared away and fresh money energy being available to you.  Hang a chime or crystal over the location where the cook stands when cooking to keep negative energy away and encourage positive money flow. Visualize expansiveness and brightness in your money situation.  Encourage healthy ch’i in your kitchen with healthy plants.  Make your money situation brighter by installing better lighting in your kitchen. Adding brightness to the wealth gua in your home is also effective.  Place ten gold coins under the mattress of your bed in the wealth area of the bed. (Standing at the foot of the bed, the bagua is laid out before you. The wealth area is at the upper left of the bed, or upper right if you are in bed.) Visualize that you have a foundation of wealth that increases even as you sleep.  Use the wealth colors to decorate your home or wear them on your body. Visualize your desires and goals coming true. In order to have abundance in your life it is important that you focus on a feeling of abundance rather than what is lacking. Discern what makes you feel that there is abundance in your life. For some people it is luxurious fabrics. For others it might be using quality ingredients in cooking or having the best coffee or chocolate. Often you can figure out a way to give yourself the feeling of luxury and abundance in a relatively inexpensive way. Indulge yourself and enjoy it. Visualize that all of life is abundant and that you are able to have what you want regularly. By focusing with gratitude on the good things in your life, you are providing reinforcement for the abundance that is already in your life and encouraging more of this energy.
