Feng Shui Tips
Translated in English as “wind water,” feng shui is the ancient Chinese practice of improving one’s life by using the laws of heaven (astronomy) and the Laws of earth (Geography). Feng Shui demonstrates how people can create harmony and balance around them. The purpose is to draw in and feel positive energy known as ch’i. Positive energy flows through the body and the environment. The energy can create positive effects and make important improvements in one’s life.
Feng shui subscribes to a number of practices that includes arranging objects and using colors to obtain the best positive energy. This consists of where to place objects in the home, geographic location of the home, and the interior and exterior design of a building or home.
Five Elements are implemented and represented by one, two or three of the following colors:
Wood – Green
Fire – Red
Water – Black or blue
Earth – Brown or Yellow
Metal – White, Gold, or Silver
A fundamental principle of feng shui is integrating the five elements into an area so they work collectively to bring harmony. The key is to add elements in rooms where positive energy is needed the most. This includes entryways, bedrooms, kitchens, and bathrooms.
More positive energy is needed where people spend the most time. Depending on the room, items and colors should emanate good health, happiness, love, and serenity.
For the office, the key is to use items, colors, and images that make you feel happy, creative, appreciated, successful, and emanates prosperity.
Salt Lamp Feng Shui
Salt Crystal Lamps are used in feng shui as a way of purifying objects, the environment, and the body. The salt draws negative energies (sha chi) from objects and environment allowing them to receive positive energy. Salt lamps come in a variety of colors with a specific purpose:
Orange – Assists with feelings of security and is helpful to our nervous system and mind as wells as activating the kidneys and bladder.
Yellow – Promotes intellectual understanding and activates the pancreas, liver and gall bladder.
Red – Strengthens the heart and circulation.
Pink – Supports the sense of companionship and love
White – Has a cleansing and detoxifying effect.
Brown – Helps to find ones own sense of balance.
Purple- The color of the highest charka and a spiritual aid
Feng Shui involves balancing the life forces. (Chi) This revolves around the Yin (female) and Yang (male) forces. It is believed that the “Yin” is known to be the more restful force of the two. The bedroom should be set up to have more “Yin” to support a sense of serenity and have better sleep. Purple Persian Salt Lamps have been known as a more effective aid for insomnia and purple in the money corner brings abundance.
A healthy flow of feng shui energy in key areas of your home will create a happier, healthier, and more energetic family. Incorporating the principles of feng shui will help reduce poor behavior, poor attitudes, as well as decrease the incidents of low energy and sickness. Feng shui is an ancient art. Consulting a feng shui specialist is recommended but you can do it yourself.
