I just love Feng Shui, there is something magical about it….. and for a long time now I had forgotten how magical it was until I stumbled on an old blog post of mine from 2009!!! Can you imagine that I’ve been writing a blog for 9 years now or even longer…. I was one of the first to start with ‘Blogger’ in 2002 …. what happened to all those years…. what distracted me so much from living my life in the light? Well unfortunately it was a divorce and then a new love….. both totally demolishing everything I had built here. The only one who caused that to happen was me. Everything had been going so well, I’d never seen it coming…. this financial blow to my head…. my whole life was turned upside down like you would never ever dream of…….. only in nightmares…. ! Divorce = Hell , New Love Abroad = Complicated ………… my advice………….don’t ever go there. My advice, leave complicated out of the equation….. seriously!!! Anyway……… So as I was de-cluttering my website and giving it a new look I stumbled across this post and now it just is such an eye opener for me. Thank you Universe for taking me back to where I belong. I now live in such a tiny flat and realise it’s so not me. I need to go back to Holland and live there again in my mum’s house …… a lovely little cottage near the woods. Peaceful and a bolt hole….. I can feel it in my bones….. I need to go back and hope Jon will come with me. Mum’s house I can turn into my home, my temple and bring ‘Zen’ energy back into it. Here in England it’s not really working out for me energy wise……. if you get this you understand where I’m coming from. It’s not my spirit country. Here are some lovely facts for you: Feng Shui is the art of balancing and harmonizing the flow of natural energies in our surroundings to create beneficial effects in our lives. It is like ‘Zen’, placing everything in your home with love and attention until it feels right and you can sense an energy shift! Much has been written on this wonderful subject… and there are plenty of interesting and good books… and blogs out there! The name Feng Shui originates in China and translates as ‘Wind & Water’. Wind is the earth’s breath, and water is the invigorating lifeblood of everything that exists on our planet. Both wind and water have tremendous energy that drives Feng Shui’s practices and techniques to fill your life with positive energies. Feng Shui, at its very core is a means of arranging the basic elements of life—and all the things that you surround yourself with on a daily basis— to create the optimal and harmonious flow of vital life energy, just like the flow of water and wind. It was first used in ancient China about 3 thousand years ago to determine the most auspicious sites for the tombs of ancestors in order to give them the best advantage to help their living descendants. Later it was used to site palaces, important government buildings, and monuments until whole cities were designed according to Feng Shui principles.
How Feng Shui works:
Feng Shui is no magic. It is a collection of practical, time-tested solutions based on the fundamental properties of elements that are used to change the negative aspects and introduce the positive aspects of each element to your living environment—and change your life for the better. Feng Shui has had a huge impact on the lives of hundreds of thousands of people around the globe—and you can have its benefits work for you! By simply changing the interior of your home, changing the colours of your walls, or relocating the furniture in your bedroom, you can enjoy the positive effects of Feng Shui.
Feng Shui information – some key points:
- Good Feng Shui requires an open mind, heart and spirit.
- Feng Shui releases negativity from your house and life. It opens up a whole new space within you for positive thoughts, love, contentment and prosperity. Don’t let negativity enter when you practice Feng Shui.
- Holding onto negative emotions and past anger can only hinder you from making progress through Feng Shui and creating a wonderful future for yourself.
- Practicing good karma is a cornerstone of Feng Shui. Be generous and give from yourself in order to receive in kind from the universe and others around you.
- You are living a life that is ill-suited to you, your personality, your dreams, your family, your essential self… and your home is symbolic of this.
Feng Shui helps you to enhance your living space by changing one or more elements in the room. As you learn more about Feng Shui, you will begin to understand the significance of each and every practice that is related to Feng Shui. Remember that Feng Shui is not only about changing your physical surroundings, but it is also about changing yourself from within. So Feng Shui is not only used for interior design purposes… it is used in all aspects of life, and in order to become a true Feng Shui Master… it takes about 30 years of studying all aspects. Decorating and Feng Shui centers around the energies ‘Yin’ and ‘Yang’. Yin is peaceful calm energy which makes you feel relaxed. Yang is a lively, active energy, which makes you feel more active and stimulated. It teaches us how the spaces in our home can be designed and rearranged following the principles in order to supply us with the right balance and harmony. One of the most important concept is the Bagua energy map that is shaped like an octagon. The Bagua is a tool we can use to determine each living or working space. This idea divides any space into nine areas, with each area corresponding to a different part of your life. Try it out and feel the difference and the wonderful impact it will have on you personally. Your home reflects your inner state… your inner Temple is a reflection of your own living space…….. inner temple + outside temple = happiness = inner peace = love Please share this page with your friends…… thank you.
Hope this serves you, Love and Light Carolyn
