Making Your Space Work for You
I had the great pleasure of attending a Feng Shui class on Tuesday evening at the Rainbow’s Ark in Livingston https://www.facebook.com/RainbowArk
So much of the work that I do is addressing the flow of Qi in the body, this class was a great reminder that Qi is flowing (or not flowing) EVERYWHERE. It makes sense that if the Qi of our living and work environments does not flow optimally, it will effect the Qi in our bodies and therefore our health and well being. Feng Shui is the art and science of working with the Qi of space. Historically, Feng Shui came about in response to humans building structures in which to live and moving out of nature.
The above diagram is called a Bagua (meaning: 8 sides) and it is like a map to working with your space. North (at the bottom of the Bagua) does not necessarily correspond to directional North, it is always oriented to the entrance of the room or structure.
Is there a particular corner of a room or your house where clutter piles up or it just doesn’t feel right? Take a look at the Bagua and see if you can find any correlations to things you may be dealing with in your life at the moment. Then add some color, a plant, a mirror…
Feng Shui is a very old, deep and complex study but there is an intuition in all of us. You can feel where Qi flows well and where it may be stuck. Follow that intuition and grab a book, or take a class about Feng Shui to further learn how to make your living and work spaces work for you!
