What is Feng Shui and Why Does it Matter? 

  • Feng Shui is a 4,000-year old Chinese philosophy that influenced how dynastic building design.
  • The concept behind Feng Shui is to bring a piece of heaven down unto Earth.
  • Feng Shui is vitally important because what you surround yourself with influences your moods, emotions and even your intellect.

 

‘Making Space’ 

  • Feng Shui is a spiritual philosophy all about space-if you don’t have space around you, you don’t have space within you.
  • Many people tend to ‘clutter’ their surroundings with mementos and reminders of our past.
  • But, in order to attract new things into your life, you have to have open space both inside and outside.

 

Energy and Balance 

Feng Shui comes from I Ching, or The Book of Changes which demonstrates, purely through symbols, that we live in a world of duality.

  • The concept of Yin and Yang (feminine and masculine) originate with the I Ching.
  •  In your environment, you need a balance of both the yin and yang.
  • We have 5 different energies within our life to varying degrees: fire, earth, water, metal, and wood.
  • Each energy has a yin and yang component.
  • If you have one element that is almost completely missing, that one can make all the difference in how you relate to people.
  • So, the goal becomes:  how do we bring that energy into our world?

 

What Your Environment Says About You 

  • The environments that we set up actually represent something about ourselves.
  • Disorganization indicates a lack of clarity and focus while extreme structure indicates a craving for control.
  • Color brings a sense of being in touch emotionally.
  • Plants indicate a wish to keep nurturing and growing.

 

How Your Environment Affects Your Relationships

  • Your environment can reflect a very isolated separateness; there’s no connectedness with the outside world or a special person.
  • So, Feng Shui tells us that we have to put symbolic connectedness into our environment to resonate actual connectedness with the outside world.

 

Practical Applications-Steps to Attract the Right People

  • Feng Shui is all about creating the right energy, vibration and frequency to attract the right people into our lives.
  • The first step is to clear the clutter.   You have clutter because you’re holding onto something emotionally.
  • Clean your space.  If you are in conflict, this step is a must.  ‘Clearing the air’ can improve existing relationships.
  • Look at your walls-have photos or artwork that portray groups and gatherings of people.
  • Have a little bit of all of the elements in your space to achieve balance.
