Feng Shui is an ancient Chinese art, science and philosophy that has been used for over 5,000 years to heal, balance and enrich people’s lives. The literal translation of Feng Shui (pronounced fung shway) means "wind water”, and functions on the principle that our living environment can help or hinder the flow of energy in our lives. Wind is the earth’s breath, and water is the revitalizing lifeblood of everything that exists on our planet. Both wind and water have incredible energy that is the guiding force of the practice of Feng Shui and infuses your life with positive energy.
At the heart of Feng Shui is the understanding of nature, particularly based on the concept that the land is alive and filled with Chi, or energy. Feng Shui reminds us that everything is connected, and that our physical surroundings have a significant impact on our mind, body, and spirit.
In a time when the more connected we become technologically, the less connected we seem to be with the natural rhythms and nurturing energies of our natural world. This disconnection can leave us feeling unsettled, run down, and wondering how we can exercise more control over our environment and every aspect of our lives.
Feng Shui, at its very core is a means of arranging all the things that you surround yourself with on a daily basis - to create a supportive and harmonious flow of vital and essential life energy - chi, just like the flow of wind and water.
In his book, “Change Your Thoughts, Change Your Life” Dr. Wayne Dyer introduced us to the concept that we can choose how we wish to see the world and, in doing so, we can improve the quality of our lives. Our environment, the spaces in which we live, work, relax, and play also has a powerful influence on our mood, health, and productivity.
Close your eyes for a moment. Visualize yourself in your perfect setting; one of peace, beauty, and serenity. Let this feeling flow over you for a few moments. Now...open your eyes. Does your environment reflect with what you just felt or were you suddenly jarred back to reality?
By applying the ancient practice of Feng Shui, you can align your environment with your inner-self, opening the door to alignment, balance, and a sustainable state of mindfulness.
Feng Shui brings our environment into balance with our authentic, natural self by reconnecting us with the natural world around us. Applying the principles of Feng Shui soothes us back into connection with the source and flow of all life energy known as chi.
Your home is a manifestation of your inner self; one mirrors the other - as within, so without. When we are in balance we are connected to vital energy - chi. We are in harmony with our environment, we feel harmonious. Our surroundings are inviting, more peaceful, more engerized and uplifting. Our thoughts, activities and relationships run smoothly. When there is chaos, we feel chaotic. Our environment destroys that balance and we encounter struggles and obstacles.
A Feng Shui consultation will teach you how to read the symbolism and energy of your home, and empowers you to bring alignment of your inner self with your surroundings into your world. It is a powerful, transformational tool that you can use to help you manifest the life you want. The consultation initiates with a conversation designed to impart a clarity towards your wants and desires. From this place of heightened self-awareness, we help you create the surroundings that support you and your objectives...of how you wish to live, work, and be.
Now, close your eyes again. Let your heart sense a new level of harmony, flow, and grace. Breathe deep, drawing this feeling inward into your authentic self. Exhale, and imagine creating the space your heart desires; a space that aligns you once again with the beauty, power, and majesty of the natural world. This is the gift of Feng Shui.
