I honor the physical surroundings that I create for myself.  It is my sacred space.


     The ancient Chinese cultural art of feng shui gives us new ways of maximizing the energy of peace and power in our living and workspace. Feng Shui involves balancing the earth’s energy so it flows in a way that makes space feel good; and we feel good in the space. Feng Shui does not require a large overhaul of our homes; here are a few simple ideas that can enhance the energy, or "chi", in our living and workspace.

  • Moving water: fountains and aquariums. When we hear bubbling water, we are soothed by its sound. Our bodies are primarily composed of water and we need water in our environment. Water is perceived by the Chinese as a symbol of money and abundance. We often see aquariums or fountains in Asian restaurants; they are placed there to enhance prosperity for their business.
     

  • Weight and heavy objects: statues, stones, rocks. Heavy objects are used for stability. In the case of stones and rocks, they connect and remind us of the stability of the earth. Rocks, stones, and seashells from favorite places also bring beautiful experiences and natural connections into our home.
     

  • Life force energy: fish, pets, plants and flowers. In feng shui, fish are seen as fruits of the ocean. Healthy friendly pets raise chi, but aggressive pets can diminish it. Plants bring us the green energy of growth and clean the air.
     

  • Life Circumstances and Goals: relationships, health, success, and wealth. Spend some time thinking about yourself, career, family, relationships and finances and the areas you want to improve. By learning the directions of your house and rooms that impact each particular aspect, you can emphasize the changes you want to make by adding a plant, hanging a mirror or placing a bowl containing messages of what you want to change. Here are a few directions that are auspicious to certain changes: South (fame and fortune), West (marriage, partnerships, mother), North (career) and East (health).


     There are many lively and informative books and articles about feng shui that offer more specifics. Some 3,000 years of practice give us some real direction for bringing more health, prosperity, and happiness into our environment.
