Feng Shui Is Not
By Joy Abrams MA, FSII
Is Feng Shui just proper placement that
will act to ameliorate your relationship problems or is it
an ideal way to find luck and prosperity in your life? Will
this enhancement to specific areas of your home or business
actually help to achieve your goals?
The answer is yes to the above questions but
there are distinct qualifications. You cannot just place various
articles at random. This will make your environment bizarre
and silly to you. A qualified Feng Shui Consultant who has
an understanding of your hopes must carefully examine your
space and needs, otherwise you can create havoc and you will
not receive the results you hoped for. If you have placed
articles in your home at random and have not received the
desired results, you can now understand why this has happened.
Symbols and therapies in Feng Shui are based on much knowledge
of Feng Shui and they must be applied with reason according
the needs of the culture person family and business. Placing
a turtle in your health area without doing anything else to
improve your health will not have the effect that you are
hoping for. Placing coins in your wealth area without your
intentions and not going out to work toward your goals will
not bring you the outcome you desire.
Feng Shui is a philosophy and methodology, which
studies the natural phenomena and laws that governs your planet
and enables you to manage your lives and lead your life to
the route that you need to follow. By keeping this in mind
there are some very important factors to be considered in
understanding Feng Shui.
Do you think that you can place some hearts in the relationship
area and that alone will improve and attract the relationship
you want? It certainly will not help you if your place is
in disorder and filled with clutter. Do you think that you
can attract a new wonderful relationship in the midst of clutter
and disorder? These spaces will not allow you to sort out
in your mind your proper intentions as well as hopes and dreams.
Disorder and disorganization will not allow you to think clearly
in order to meet the right partner.
Do you want your business to thrive? That will
be a challenge as disorder in the work environment makes everyone
stressed. If people are constantly looking for things this
results in stress and arguments and a very poor working environment
that leads to a dead end. Certainly this not your goal or
intention and intention is so important in Feng Shui.
Self Sabotage and Fear of Change
Are you afraid of change? If so this is the first thing that
you need to work on. Transformation takes time, intention,
and effort as well as support and must be worked on and believed
in. In some cultures it is believed that when one says, “I
cannot” it means, “I do not want”. Examine this and see if
you really want to help yourself. Taking responsibility for
yourself helps you to begin to work independently and not
lay the responsibility for your happiness on someone else’s
shoulders. It enhances your chances for happiness.
Change will be better for you in long run if
it is positive. Remember the benevolent Feng Shui Consultant
cannot be the catalyst to bring on the change if you do not
intend or wish it. Feng Shui is energy management and pertains
to change and transformation that leads to success.
Choose Symbols That Are Appropriate
When your space has been cleared and organized and you are
feeling clear and determined and good about yourself that
is the time to place particular objects that enhance your
intentions as well as your hopes and dreams.
Make sure that you are comfortable with the objects that you
place in various areas of your home and that they are culture
Make sure that they help you to feel more joyful and they
represent what you hope to attain.
Do not place certain objects in your space because you read
that only they might bring certain results. Anything that
you have around you must resonate with your own energy. That
means that you must like to look at the objects around you
and feel good when you look at them.
By following these simple suggestions you will lead your boat
of life in the course that is best for you and you alone,
and feel good about what you are doing at the same time.
