Do you think of Feng Shui as a vehicle to bring better things into your life? Have you used Feng Shui in the hope of finding more money, a new love interest or better health? Feng Shui may indeed be able to effect positive changes in your life but unfortunately there’s no scientific evidence of its results. One can easily pose the question, “Did I get a promotion because of a Feng Shui cure I implemented or was it just a coincidence?” Feng Shui is a metaphysical study and because its efficacy can’t be qualified, many people dismiss it or think of it as a “wu-wu” or new-age practice.
There is a way to use Feng Shui which presents tangible, direct results using one of the original precepts of Feng Shui – balancing energy. Rather than focusing on putting special Feng Shui cures or symbols in certain locations as widely practiced, using Feng Shui to balance energy is practical and results-oriented. In essence, it’s a paradigm shift from hoping that you can effect a change in your life circumstances to feeling a tangible change in your immediate environment.
Using Feng Shui to balance energy is also a holistic and subtle way of effecting positive changes. Feeling comfortable at home supports your health. Less stress can make you open to more opportunity and inspiration. When you feel uncomfortable in an environment it most likely means that the energy is unbalanced. Most of us know when we feel good or not-so-good in certain spaces, but we may not know all the reasons why. Feng Shui principals regarding yin and yang, the five elements, placement and form explain why. That is the essence of authentic Feng Shui.
Energy causes an environment to feel comfortable or uncomfortable. For example, if a room feels cold and sterile, the energy is out of balance. The correct elements are needed to bring the room into balance. A room that is dark and feels stifling needs balancing to create vibrancy and spaciousness. Rearranging your home changes its energy. By quantifying room usage, the innate energy in the room, and the elements that are lacking or in surplus, a room can be re-arranged to feel completely different.
You’ll feel a palpable change in energy in a space after redesigning it with Feng Shui.
Using Feng Shui to correct energy imbalances in a space is practical and doesn’t rely on special Feng Shui cures. Making a space more balanced and comfortable so that it positively affects your ability to relax makes sense. A cozy room benefits your mind, body and spirit. Using Feng Shui in this way can arguably help you make more money, find a new love interest, or increase your health. These outcomes can result from the balanced, comfortable energy you feel in your environment which is different from using symbols and cures that people associate with Feng Shui. When you move your stuff around, you are creating a tangible energy change and are tapping into the power of authentic Feng Shui.
