Feng Shui Part One
Today I am going to discuss a subject that is very near and dear to my heart; Feng Shui.
Feng Shui is an ancient Chinese discipline, ‘Feng’ means wind and ‘Shui’ means water. It is a unique combination of Art and Science; Science based on the flow of energy and the Art of harmonious placement.
Feng Shui works on the principle that the space around us affects us. The purpose of applying Feng Shui is to improve your life by improving the energy of your environment. Whether we realize it or not, we are constantly being affected by the Feng Shui of our environment.
The first and most important component of Feng Shui is Chi. This Chi is the vital energy that flows through every environment. The second most important ingredient is Intention. For effectively applying Feng Shui principles in any environment, Intention is key. Good Feng Shui is a blend of positive chi with the power of Intention.
According to grand master Lin Yun, every Feng Shui cure involves both visible and invisible elements. Changing the visible elements in a way of making changes involves changing the physical environment. The invisible (spiritual) elements include your energy, intention, desires, and goals. Both parts are equally important for effective cures. Modern Feng Shui experts use a map to divide the space into nine sections. This Map is called Bau Gua. Each section represents a living area.
So what are the cures? Well, it depends on the area of your life you want to cure. For example, you want to improve your health; you will focus on the center part of this map. Even though all areas interrelate to each other in Feng Shui, improving your health will require you to concentrate on the center of the map. By assessing the energy conditions in the area of your house we can make the necessary adjustments to improve its chi. So if you want to apply Feng shui principles in your living environment, start by using these easy tips:
Set your intentions, ideally write them down
Get rid of everything you don’t use or love
Clean and organize your home /office
Start making adjustments slowly. De-cluttering and organizing your environment will bring you a stress-free, happy space.
I will conclude this episode by sending a positive Chi towards you with the intention of bringing peace and joy to your living environment.
