Feng Shui and Flow
09/12/17 Filed in: Wellbeing
Feng Shui is an ancient Chinese art and science that was developed over 3,000 years ago. Practitioners of this discipline seek to create harmony and balance by optimizing the flow of Chi within our living spaces, as well as within our external environment. The words Feng Shui mean wind and water, two forces of nature which beautifully express the powerful energy of flow.
We are living in a most challenging time upon the planet. Great tumultuous shifts are occurring, and we have recently witnessed the potential for the fluid elements of wind and water to unleash chaos, disruption and destruction. In these unsettling times, it is more important than ever for us to find ways of creating more stability, harmony and balance.
We are being asked to let go of outdated beliefs and mental constructs we may still be clinging to that no longer serve us. We are being asked to pare down and simplify our lives. The principles of Feng Shui, which essentially have to do with the enhancement of flow can be applied to many aspects of daily life.
Take a look around you. Along with outdated thoughts and beliefs, are you holding onto material things you no longer need? Could you lighten, brighten, and clean out your home, your drawers, your closets? Does your diet enhance or hinder ease of movement, the feeling of lightness? Is enjoyable physical movement and exercise part of your routine? What changes could you make, would you like to make to create more flow in your life?
Along with darker forces we are exposed to daily, the planet is also receiving downloads of higher light. And both the light and the darkness have the potential to shift us off center. Do your best to practice self love, self care and seek whatever support you need to heal old wounds, past issues, and childhood trauma which can easily be triggered at this time.
It is time for us all to let go of the past, to live in the now and to envision and create a lighter, brighter, more harmonious individual, as well as collective future!
