For centuries, the principles of Feng Shui have been practiced in the East. Feng Shui means “wind and water”. It is an understanding of how the movement of energies can affect our environment, health, and our lives. The basic principles of Feng Shui include: space clearing, color, elements, precision placement, and design. Simple shifts and adjustments in your surroundings can create beneficial energy by correcting the flow of “chi” or “life force”. They may also bring forth new opportunities in health, relationships, travel, business and education, as well as an abundance of prosperity. By applying the ancient Feng Shui principles, we have the ability to create a more peaceful and harmonious environment for all who reside in your home or business.
Are You Feeling Stuck or Depressed?
“Chi stagnation” can be described as a feeling of being stuck, depressed, ill, or uncomfortable. Without proper alignment, energetic movement and change, our bodies and spirits can suffer. If we reside in an area where there is discordance, it can influence us at a cellular level since we are made up of trillions of cells that react to our internal and external environment. By moving our body, as well as moving our furniture, personal belongings and landscapes, we can increase our vitality and experience a feeling of inner peace and tranquility. The acceptance of change is essential to maintain health, emotional balance, and well-being.
Another example of Chi stagnation is “energetic imprints”, which may be left by previous owners or tenants, failed businesses, and foreclosures as well as by illness, divorce, and even death of prior occupants. The location of a dwelling or office at the end of a cul-de-sac, near a mountain, body of water, or power lines can also affect energy. Living in the midst of clutter and disorganization can make us feel uncomfortable and keep us from moving forward in our lives. Any or all of these situations can create imbalance and cause distress to oneself, family, friends and clients. The application of Feng Shui helps to clear these “energetic imprints” by using the art of placement and design to recreate a new and vibrant environment.
Evaluate Your Environment
During a Feng Shui consultation, we evaluate the environment of your home, land, and/or business. Then we design and establish a compatible relationship within your surroundings to bring forth support for your life, health and well-being. The “Bagua” is one valuable tool. It is a chart that incorporates nine major components of life in reference to the nine sectors of your home, office or land. It includes direction, life situations, elements, and colors that work best in each area. The Bagua chart is placed over the layout of your existing property or blueprints of new space to determine where the nine “guas” are located. After walking through your home/office and reviewing any areas of concern, we configure the space through the application of Feng Shui principles and make changes that are necessary to create more balance and flow. Then, a powerful “Chi adjustment” or “rice blessing” can be incorporated to clear old and stagnate energy. This adjustment allows your space to “breathe” in order to welcome the new opportunities and blessings you call forth.
During this process, we can incorporate the guidance of Co-Active Life Coaching. I will invite you to state intentions, which are powerful statements to God/Spirit/Creator, to bring focus, clarity, and action to your visions, thoughts, and dreams. New discoveries may unfold as we uncover any blocks or blind spots that have kept you from launching your life in the direction of your heart’s desire. When your surroundings reflect the things that you love, your space will feel revitalized. It is your right to live your life passionately and to dwell in a sacred environment that embraces your true essence. Together, we can create your path of least resistance and take action now. It would be my honor to assist you in creating your “Best Year Ever”!
