LIVING WITH GOOD FENG SHUI
is very much about getting fully acquainted with the ART OF PLACEMENT and working with the SYMBOLS of good fortune according to the different formulas of Feng Shui and also taking note of Feng Shui’s THREE DIMENSIONS.
So you need to be enhancing your SPACE, updating according to TIME changes in energy and appeasing the SPIRITS of your home.
It’s all quite easy once you know what to do and how to do it. Here’s a list of simple things you can bring into your daily schedule to give your home a real boost of fresh energy that engages the Three Dimensions of feng shui.
1 CLEAN YOUR SPACE.
Keep your home and your rooms clear of clutter pile-up so have a good housekeeping daily schedule. Once a week, remove all stubborn negative energies with three rounds of hand clapping or ringing bells or using a singing bowl to let the sounds cut right through yin energy accumulations and disperse all quarrel and hostile energies. This way, your space stays physically and spiritually crisp and clean.
2 ADOPT a PET.
This can add vibrant new chi energy into the home. A dog or a cat can generate copious amounts of YANG chi with their playfulness; this prevents YIN spirit formation that is caused by stillness in the home when you are away at work.
3 BRING in GREEN PLANTS.
This enhances the energy of life and growth. They create fresh oxygen and add the natural colour of the great outdoors into your space. Take up gardening to add new life giving YANG chi into your space on an ongoing basis.
4 PLAY MUSIC THROUGH the DAY.
This generates the resonance of life sounds, which does wonders for the vibrations of the home space. Keep the radio or television turned on, but keep the volumes down. What you want is a feeling of there being life energy inside your home.
5 OFFER INCENSE DAILY.
This is a powerful way of staying on good terms with the Spirit energies of your home. When you offer incense through the medium of fire i.e. by burning, the spirits who live alongside you will protect and keep your home safe.
6 UPDATE YOUR PLACEMENTS.
Every month the energy of your home, its rooms and corners will change so it is a good idea to update the placement of the symbols of good fortune in your home. Check the new flying star and astrological energies from this magazine every month.
7 DISPLAY HAPPY PHOTOGRAPHS.
Always have pictures of the family smiling happily together displayed on table tops and cabinets. This ensures the family will always stay together and stay safe.
8 MOVE THE CHI.
This is an important aspect of Spiritual Feng Shui and requires you to literally move your tables and chairs even a little bit, and to change your decorative features around every now and then. This “moves” the chi and keeps the objects of your home alive.
9 CREATE CELEBRATION OCCASIONS.
Organize parties or get-togethers in the home on a regular basis. When you bring friends into the home, you are energizing your home with fresh chi energies, which is certain to add to your feng shui!
