Creating Balance and Prosperity in your Home
Home truly is where the heart is. That’s why it’s so important that your home is nurturing, supportive, safe and makes you feel like you’re getting a big hug when you walk in the door. No matter what’s going on in the world outside, once you step inside you should be completely relaxed and able to connect to body, mind and spirit. When you implement changes in your home, you will notice that your life is also transformed- instantly, dramatically and permanently. This is Feng Shui…
Feng Shui is an ancient art and science dating back 4,000 years to Chinese philosophy and culture. There are many different schools of Feng Shui practiced around the world today that have adapted to the geographical locations and times of our modern world. For example, one school of practice is called “Classical” which has the same roots as acupuncture. Whereas needles are used to treat the energy patterns of the body to improve your health, Classical Feng Shui uses both decorative and non-seen items made of the Five Elements: Water, Wood, Fire, Earth and Metal (and their representative colors) to remedy any negative influences caused by the invisible energies in our environments. Bringing the elements into our spaces also helps us reconnect with nature by balancing the natural order of things.
FENG literally means WIND and SHUI (pronounced Shway) means WATER – Wind & Water carry Chi (the energy of life); 60% of our bodies are comprised of water & air. The 3 Principles of Chi are: (1) Everything is Alive (2) Everything is Connected or Related and (3) Everything is always Changing – weather, seasons, bodies, emotions.
How a place feels will deeply affect people's responses on both conscious and subconscious levels. While some places seem to feel naturally inviting, warm and inspiring, others do not feel right and usually people do not thrive there, or worse, they want to leave quickly. Bringing Feng Shui into the internal and external design of a building can have immediate, noticeable, and positive effects upon the way that people react and function there. One could say that Feng Shui is a practical technique for manipulating Chi or Energy to improve wealth & prosperity, relationships, career, family, children and creativity, education, community respect and health among other things.
Feng Shui practices can also include a deeper understanding in using crystals, essential oils and even astrology. Feng Shui is not limited to just the home either; it can be used in your office, your garden, even in your personal style of clothing!
Feng Shui IS:
A practical technique for manipulating Ch’i or Energy to improve prosperity, relationships, career, family, children, education, community respect and health among other things.
The art & science of making the energy environment so supportive that one’s attitude, opportunities and luck automatically change for the better.
A science in the same way that medicine is a science.
Feng Shui is NOT:
A Religion, A form of Psychology, A form of Interior Decorating, Magic, A Cure-all, Easy, A Spiritual Practice
Is a low vibrational, stagnant, and confusing energy that drains energy from you. Depending on the area of your home where the clutter is located, it can negatively influence and affect the following specific aspects of your life:
Wealth & Prosperity
Fame & Reputation
Love & Relationships
Children & Creativity
Helpful People & Travel,
Knowledge & Self-Cultivation
Heaven Luck – the “horoscope” you were born with. Our destiny that we cannot change.
Human Luck – Your own responsibility & efforts to overcome obstacles in life thru positive ways of thinking.
Earth Luck – Feng Shui – the manipulating of chi to improve your opportunities.
To contain the right quality and quantity of Ch’i within the home or office to improve the EARTH luck of its occupants.
Similar to Acupuncture (FS has the same roots in dealing with energy) blocked or stagnant chi can cause fatigue and compromise the immune system causing health issues. The same applies in your home or offices.
One of the main causes of stagnant or blocked chi in your home or office is CLUTTER!
NOT because it takes time & effort...But generally because it is stuff from our past that we just can’t seem to let go of and the thought and act of clearing becomes a very emotional process that feels like therapy, and it takes emotional stamina to do it.
It’s a vicious circle…the more clutter the more tired you are and the more tired you are the less you want to clean it out and so on and so forth… Our brains can only hold 8 things in it at one time so having a life full of clutter can cause lack of focus & clarity which then leads to a gamut of other problems & ailments.
GOOD NEWS is, that once it’s done and you have an organized system to avoid its accumulation in the future, you will IMMEDIATELY start experiencing high energy levels, more clarity, and a heightened sense of well-being.
