Feng Shui teaches us that
everything is energy,
and we are in a constant energy exchange with
everything around us. Thus, it is it very important
to create a feng shui home that has a happy and
healthy energy. Feng Shui has a variety of tips for
a happy feng shui home, all based on the fact that
if you live in a healthy and happy feng shui home,
your own energy will inevitably become healthy and
Have you noticed how happy people change the energy
of the room when they come in? And how you become
happier and more optimistic when you hang out with
your happy friends? This is happening because you
are in a constant energy exchange with everything
that surrounds you - people, animals, buildings,
trees, etc, etc.
Now is the best time to
do yourself a big favor and use feng shui to create
the ultimate happy feng shui friend - your own home.
The more you know about
the anatomy of your space, i.e. feng shui, the more
you can achieve in terms of establishing a healthy
relationship with your home.
This new relationship
will beneficially reflect in all areas of your life:
your love life, your career, the relationship with
your children. If you are just beginning to explore
feng shui and are curious what can it do for you,
here are two essential feng shui starting points:
1. CONNECT to your home just like you would connect
to a person. Ask, listen and pay attention.
Look and see which feng
shui areas of your home "hurt." By "hurt" I mean
they are not working well, not looking good, you
don't like to spend time there, etc, etc. Just like
the pain in one part of your body stops the energy
flow in the whole body, the same happens with the
feng shui of your home. As every part of your home
is connected to a specific part of your life (for
example, the East feng shui area is connected to
your Health & Family) ; low energy in a specific
feng shui part of your home will start reflecting in
lower energy or blockages in specific areas of your
ACCEPT whatever state your home is in without a
strong emotional response, just try to get to the
bare essence of it.
Lets say you hate to
see that bathroom upstairs, but you are also
resistant to deal with it. No matter what the reason
is, be it time, money, low self-esteem or all of the
above, just accept it! Sit down and write several
feng shui steps you need to go through to fix the
bathroom and make it look beautiful. Again, try to
define it with no emotional attachment, just as if
it is a job you have to do, a little (or big!)
project you have to manage.
Strong emotions will
most probably come to the surface, and you will have
to be ready to let them flow, but do not let them
stop you from what you are doing to use feng shui to
heal your home, thus specific parts of your life.
After you have
experienced these two feng shui essentials, get
started with these basic and practical feng shui
steps and know that your life will change!
Feng Shui for Home is
one of the most efficient therapies ever - you work
on the house, but what you are actually doing is
healing your own life - your past hurt, pain,
sorrow, blockages, whatever it is that you have
accumulated over the years; and are now creating a
fresh new feng shui space to happily manifest your
Happy Feng Shui-ing!
