Feng shui, as you know if you've been visiting this website for a while, is about the flow of energy through a space and how it can help you (or hinder you) when it comes to fulfilling your true purpose in life.
Certain types of energy are not conducive to fulfilling life goals. Different energy might make you feel scattered, disorganized, depressed, under attack, or simply unhealthy. A large part of what I do during a Feng Shui consultation
is to help clients assess the energy in a space, and then we can modify, moderate or balance that energy so it helps people fulfill their dreams and destiny.
As you start implementing Feng Shui tips in your home or apartment, you'll want to consider the flow of energy in different areas, specifically in those trigrams of the ba gua that correspond with areas of your life that need help.
Also remember to evaluate the energy in the three most important areas
of your home or apartment:
- the main entrance
- the master bedroom
- the stove
Feng Shui Tips to Evaluate the Energy
Ask yourself these questions: - How do you feel when you enter a room?
Like a whirlwind, scattered and excited but disorganized or at peace? Once you're attuned to it, you can feel the rush that comes from fast moving chi. This type of chi tends to carry out opportunities, wealth and good fortune before a home's inhabitants have a chance to take advantage of it. - Do you feel depressed or heavy, as if you can barely move?
This type of stagnant chi can contribute to a home's inhabitants feeling “stuck” in their lives -- a common challenge amongst many clients who call me for a Feng Shui consultation
. - Do you feel healthy and full of life?
This indicates healthy, flourishing chi, while negative chi can lead to feelings of illness and exhaustion.
