is an ancient Chinese System of earth harmony. To instantly
get started I suggest three ways for instant Feng Shui.
yourself with what you love and who you love
Surround yourself with comfortable things
Continually work on organizing yourself and your surroundings
Surrounding yourself with what you love and who you love is
so important for your physical and mental health. I am reminded
of the story of one of my students who attended my seminar
and listened intently when I told everyone that everything
you own has energy and it is positive or not so positive.
I told them that is important for you to enjoy the things
that you love. The things that you do not feel good about
give away or share with someone who needs them. I talked about
the teapot that my mom gave me. I love serving tea in i because
it reminds me of her. My student later emailed me to tell
me that she gave away a tiffany compote because every time
she looked at it, it reminded her of the person who gave it
to her. That person had not been a positive influence in her
life. . After she gave away the gift she felt so much better
on her physical and emotional level.
yourself with loving people so that the energy you receive
is positive. Be more discriminating in your choices and more
discriminating I am not talking about dividing and splitting
but knowing people by their energy. I am speaking of energy
here as qualities. Kindness is an energy as well as thoughtfulness
and considerateness. These are positive energies and you want
to surround yourself with people who exude these energies.
yourself with safety and comfortable things. You are not going
to feel comfortable if every time you enter your home, you
walk into a table with sharp edges. You are going to feel
uncomfortable if above your head, where you sit, there is
a picture with a heavy glass frame. The safety factor will
be a challenge for you in both situations.
certainly be reassuring for you if after you come home from
a challenging day at work if you can rest in a comfortable
chair in your favorite color. The picture of relaxation would
be complete if the lighting over your chair was just right,and
you heard the soft sound of a waterfall or fountain in the
work on organizing yourself and your surroundings. Clear out
your space so that you can make room for new wonderful events
to enter your life. As your life situation changes you need
to make room for the new by discarding the things that you
no longer use. Have two bags as you are cleaning and clearing
your space . Label one for sharing and the other for saving.
You will feel so much lighter after you have given away things
that you do not wear or have not worn for two years.
ever think of the fact that you really do not need all those
sheets that you never use? Try to have one sheet set that
you use and love and an alternate sheet set and see how much
more room you have in your linen closet.
going through your closet and eliminating outfits that you
have not worn in a couple of years? You will be amazed at
the things that you own and can use now. We have such an abundance
of things that sometimes we do not even realize what we own.
Eliminating clutter simplifies things for you because you
can find what you are looking for. You do not end up buying
duplicates, which saves you money and time in the long run.
to honor yourself and your likes and dislikes and have confidence
in your choices. Nurture yourself with good energy and that
will bring instant Feng Shui into your life.
