Feng shui is concerned with creating sacred space, and a harmonious environment where energy (‘qi’ in Chinese) can flow so we can live our full potential in comfort and beauty.
Feng shui can be applied in very practical ways. For instance you can rearrange your furniture, or hang something beautiful in an otherwise dark or dingy corner, or note the orientation of a house before you make a purchase. Many times the solution is a practical, tangible change.
To many people it’s pretty clear that if you move a piece of furniture out of a commonly used pathway there is more energetic flow through the space. Using this simplified example can help you understand how you could apply the same principles to more complex situations. We do not always appreciate how sensitive we are to our environment, but realize how uncomfortable you feel when you walk into a dreary neglected waiting room, or how the sound of a creaky hinge can make you tense, or the color or lighting in a room may cause you to feel either depressed or cheerful. There are many opportunities to make the most of your surroundings.
A carefully arranged environment may affect how you live in very positive ways. When positive energy flows well in our home or office, the effect becomes apparent in our daily lives. It may show up as better health and or increased energy, more satisfying relationships, newly inspired creativity, a feeling of well-being and security or better financial situations.
Practicing Feng Shui is a way to nurture yourself and your family responsibly. It is also a spiritual practice of awareness, reverence to nature and expression of creativity. Many people have purchased a book and begun to practice techniques in their own home. Learning to work with the tools of Feng Shui accurately can be frustrating, confusing or difficult, just like learning anything new. However, remember that your intuition is your greatest tool. Learn to trust your inner guidance. That is the true tool which underlies all healing modalities (a process of restoring balance), including Feng Shui.
