Home is where the heart is, hence organizing the home would help in creating a positive environments which infuse confidence and determination in our pursuits. The positive environment that engenders good qualities and constructive activities aids in creating the good chi ( energy). The energy of a home also depends on the location of the home, its design layout and decor and it also determines whether spiritual energies exist in such places.
When the level of confidence is low and poor self-esteem exists, it can make things difficult in our pursuits and such low self esteem could be due to events that happened in childhood, the way parents treated us, appearance, our jobs, and anything unfavourable, to others. Although adapting Feng shui may not, over night, change self-perceptions that took years or decades to develop, it will certainly create the right environment to bring about changes and boost the esteem and confidence. When your immediate surrounding supports and boosts your confidence, you’ll begin to feel more confident and, in turn you will find people drawn towards you and in turn it will improve the networking luck, mentor support and business and career prospects.
According to the theory of Feng shui, all objects and spaces have different energies that affect each other in various ways. The objects that you bring into your house are believed to have positive or negative effects on the energy in your home. The goal of Feng shui is to balance these energies to create an atmosphere that aligns with your ambitions and dreams.
Adapting basic Feng shui symbolism at home or workplace can help, however some simple adaptation of colours in personal attire and accessories could also give ample benefits.
For example, in Feng shui, red is the ultimate power colour imbuing warmth, success, prosperity, wealth and it’s also a colour of protection. One can adapt shades of red in neck-ties, scarves, ladies footwear or can even try hanging a red tassel to handbag, luggage, computer case, keys, etc. to empower themselves.
