How is your week going? I’m in GO! Mode--daughters and babies visited last weekend, the FS class is in full swing (Really Fun!!!!!) and I’ve got clients who are diving right into BIG Feng Shui projects--OMG, really amazing people and fantastic projects!!!!
I realized that we’re always talking about “CHI” here in Feng Shui land...and that you may or may not know what it is and how it works…
What is Chi?
Chi is the mysterious stuff that makes the world go ‘round, (aka: prana, energy, life force, spirit, pizzazz, vitality, power)--it’s in every single thing: in you, and me...in the birds, rocks, air and your morning latte…
Scientists confirm that even the most dense object has life force in it--meaning EVERYTHING is created from these moving molecules. Amazing, huh?????
It is hard to put into words something so vast and unknowable and doing so tends to limit and squash the greatness of it.
Chi is a mystery beyond mysteries--a secret probably impossible for any of us to fully understand.
But, Here’s The Fun Part:
At least we can get close enough to watch how it behaves--this is where it gets interesting!
And, this is how we can build our FS muscle and use this energetic tool to our benefit...
We can most easily access out own personal energy (or chi) by tuning in to our own feelings, sensations, intuitions.
We can also watch the cause and effect relationship we have with our environments…
Start With Something EASY:
Where would you rather take your next vacation?
Can you feel your energy shift just by IMAGINING spending a week in each of those locations?
It’s a quick exercise to easily notice your energy and how it lifts or drops just by ENERGETICALLY placing yourself in a variety of locations.
Now Try This:
Imagine putting your 300,000 items (statistics say we all own an average of 300,000 items) in your living room--including the car.
How does that make you feel?
Anyone feeling tightness, contraction, anxiety????
Isn’t it amazing what happens just by visualizing this scenario????
You most likely felt the emotional and/or physical differences in your body…so let’s use this to our advantage and cause the chi to flow OPTIMALLY through our homes.
Watch what happens when you make (real) changes in your environment--deleting clutter or adding beauty. Feel the difference in your emotions and in your body.
This week, start small and practice watching the chi and how it impacts you and then…
USE IT TO YOUR ADVANTAGE!!!!!! Arrange things in such a way that your emotions and body respond favorably--keep noticing and tweaking and practicing and (of course) having fun with it…
And then, let me know :) What do you notice--I would love to hear from you!
Lots of Love,
