In a world filled with crime, global unrest, high cost of living, increased cost of housing, skyrocketing food prices, and the constant worry about home security, finding peace of mind can seem like an elusive dream. However, by incorporating the principles of Feng Shui, harnessing the power of meditation, the law of attraction and utilizing colour therapy, you can create an environment that promotes tranquillity and adds a sense of security for you.
Feng Shui is an ancient Chinese practice that balances energies within a space to encourage positive Qi (cosmic energy) flow. By applying Feng Shui principles in your home, you can create a sanctuary that nurtures your well-being and provides respite from external stressors. Start by decluttering and organizing your living space. Remove any items that no longer serve you or bring negative energy into your home. A clutter-free environment allows for better energy circulation and promotes a clear mind. If you don't use it or wear it, donate to charity. Often we keep items of sentiment because we may feel guilty if we no longer use, need or want them in our homes. Take a photo of the sentimental item "Aunt Sally" gave you to keep as a good memory, and then donate the item.
Next, pay attention to the placement of furniture. Arrange it in a way that allows for easy movement and creates a sense of openness.
Avoid blocking doorways or windows, as this hinders positive energy flow. Place the bed and desk in the "command position" to relax your nervous system. Don't push the sofa or chairs right up against the wall. Leave some space for Qi circulation. One crucial aspect of Feng Shui is keeping your house organized. Cluttered areas create physical chaos, disrupt energy flow, and create sha qi (negative energy) in your home. Start by decluttering each room and removing items you no longer need or use. Create designated storage areas for belongings to maintain a sense of orderliness. This will make it easier to find things and contribute to a more peaceful environment. Seek the help of a professional organizer if you need extra support.
An essential aspect of KITCHEN Feng Shui is keeping groceries fresh and not keeping refrigerators filled with expired products. Regularly organizing your pantry and cleaning your fridge will ensure fresh produce is readily available; you promote healthy eating habits and create an inviting atmosphere in your kitchen. Today with the soaring prices of groceries, it is essential to keep food fresh to prevent waste.
Keep countertops clutter-free for good Qi flow. To stimulate abundance, make sure to use all of the burners on your stove. The kitchen in Feng Shui is associated with wealth and prosperity.
The BEDROOM is significant as we spend eight hours during the night here. In Feng Shui, the bedroom is associated with health. Assure that you have a good solid wall to place your headboard against. Keep your bed in the command position, not directly in front of your bedroom door. Don't place mirrors in front of your bed, as it may interfere with a good night's sleep.
Introduce elements from nature into your home decor. Plants add beauty, purify the air, and infuse spaces with vibrant energy. Choose plants known for their calming properties, such as lavender or jasmine, to promote relaxation. Use essential oils in your bath to shift your energy.
It is essential to take practical measures to ensure your home's safety by installing secure locks on windows and doors and consider investing in a reliable security system for added peace of mind.
Meditation is another powerful tool for finding inner peace amidst chaos. Set aside dedicated time each day to sit quietly in meditation. Focus on deep breathing techniques to calm the mind and release tension from the body. As you cultivate this practice over time, you will be better equipped to handle stressful situations with clarity and composure.
Colour has a profound impact on our emotions and mental state. Incorporating specific colours into your living space can feel calm while adding an extra layer of security. Soft, neutral tones like light blues and greens create a soothing atmosphere that promotes relaxation. These colours can be incorporated through wall paint, furniture upholstery, or decorative accents. Consider incorporating deeper shades of blue or purple to give your home a sense of security. These colours are associated with stability, spirituality and protection. Earth tones help you feel grounded and safe. You can introduce these hues through curtains, rugs, or artwork.
Colour Mirrors, a system of colour therapy, uses the psychology of colour so you achieve your full potential. Each colour choice you make is a mirror to reflect where the healing is needed for you to live a more fulfilled life. The system consists of gem-like dual-coloured oil bottles and coloured essences that can soothe your soul, encourage self-healing to raise the vibration of your aura field, and clear and shift the energy in your home and spaces. Soak in a bathtub and pour the colour of your choice, a gem like Colour Mirrors oils to shift your energy and release blocks you may be feeling to allow you to move forward in your life. Colour Mirrors Practitioners are trained to work with the Colour Mirrors energy system.
It is important to take practical measures to ensure your home's safety by installing secure locks on windows and doors and consider investing in a reliable security system for added peace of mind. Have a list of local phone numbers for emergencies in your area.
Remember that finding peace amidst challenges is an ongoing process. Taking care of your energy (aura) to ensure the grounding you require when applying Feng Shui to your home or office is imperative. By consistently using these practices and making conscious choices in your environment, you can stay grounded and create a sanctuary even in the face of adversity.
