Feng Shui means “Wind” and “Water”

Feng Shui

Feng Shui is the art of placement.
Chi means “Energy”
It is the practice of arranging your environment so that energy or “chi” flows gently and smoothly through your home or business environment.

Just as chi flows through your body, chi also flows your through living environment. When the energy flow is stagnant (think clutter and overflowing closets), moves too quickly (think long dark hallways, stairs, and straight shots through the home), or is obstructed (think walls, trees, or even cars in the wrong place), the unbalanced chi may lead to ill-health, domestic strife, or financial concerns.

Feng Shui adjustments can help you make sure that the chi energy flow is just right so that everything in your environment supports your wish for good luck, good health, harmonious relationships, and prosperity.

In this way your space just feels good–and supports what you want out of life-whether it’s a better career, new romance, improved health, or more income.

Three basic Concepts of Feng Shui:
  • Safety
  • Clutter
  • Environmental Affirmation

Safety

  • Negative and unsafe objects we need to remove from our homes
  • Weapons and weapon like objects
  • Anything that registers as unsafe to the nervous system
  • Unfriendly furniture
  • Anything you can stub your toe, hit your head, bump into or injure yourself in any way is considered unsafe
  • Beams register as heavy objects over our heads to our subconscious. We are working with things that affect the nervous system on a subtle level.
  • Ceiling fans
  • These effects may be subtle, but like water dripping on a stone, over time there is a hole where the stone once was. Because we spend so much time in our homes and workplaces, all of these accumulate.

Clutter

  • Do I love It?
  • Does it uplift me?
  • Is it useful?
  • Does it reflect who I am now in my life?
  • If it is broken, when am I going to fix it?

Environmental Affirmations

  • It reflects our conscious and unconscious beliefs about life and our selves.
  • What does your environment say about you?
  • Broken things drag your chi down
  • Unfinished projects may be sending a message of “you lazy person you never finish anything”
  • Unused exercise machines as “naggers” every time you walk by them sending negative messages
  • Furniture and objects from past relationships that invoke a negative memory should be moved out of your space and replaced with items that feed you in a positive way

Art[important to the over all concept]

  • Art is extremely important and is taking up prime real estate on you walls or in your space
  • Negative art may be powerful and designed to invoke a strong reaction and message, but we cannot live with it in our homes.
