Translated literally, Feng Shui means "Wind Water". Wind represents the energy we cannot see but can feel. Water represents the energy in our physical spaces we can see.
Feng Shui is based on principles that have transcended various cultures for over four thousand years empowering people to facilitate changes in their lives. These principles are all based on the cycles of nature. As with tai chi, chi gong, traditional Chinese medicine, and acupuncture, they all have one thing in common – Attaining balance aligning with nature. Feng Shui helps us create balance in our lives as we connect to our environment.
What is happening in our lives is reflected in our space, so what better way to make sustainable changes in our lives than to have our intention set in our physical space creating anchors and support to help us make it happen.
There are messages all around us all the time, but how often do we notice anything? We race around at warp speed; we never seem to have enough time, our minds are always ten steps ahead of what we are doing. How many times have you started driving and then all of a sudden you have arrived at your destination but have no recollection of how you got there? Feng Shui gives us tools to use to begin to read these messages so that we really begin to notice how we feel. It is our first line of communication with our subconscious.
Feng Shui is all about the person: yes, it is all about YOU! Feng Shui is a very practical tool for us to begin to understand who we are, what makes us tick and to celebrate ourselves in all our perfection. Feng Shui can help us begin to let go of judging ourselves. When we no longer judge ourselves, there is nothing left to judge, we move into a place of love and gratitude.
Whenever we begin to let go of things, whether in our mind or in our space, it gives us an opening for new beginnings, ideas and opportunities to come into our life. Managing our “stuff” which some may refer to as “clutter” is a very cool tool to help create that opening. First and foremost we must begin to notice how we feel, and what is happening when we recognize these feelings.
We can change our physical space to support the desired changes inside of our true selves.
When we use the principles of Feng Shui, as tools, to support us on our journey, everything is possible.
