There is a strong link between human life and the space we occupy, in other words our place of dwelling. The design, layout and energy flow in our surroundings have a significant influence in all aspects of our life. When the environment is restrictive or not conducive, it influences the occupants and causes ill effects. In the science of Classical Feng Shui, it is said that energy (Chi) flowing in a building gathers more towards the centre while originating from all the corners of the building. Hence, the centre sector is akin to the human heart which supports all the other human organs by ticking alive. In other words, the type of décor and space that the centre of your home or office has, will have a strong influence across the building.
The Feng Shui compass itself is a unique, accurate and a valuable tool which reveals important aspects of the analysis of a specific place. The compass directions are classified further on the basis of the Chinese Zodiac Sign and the twelve animals are distributed around the dial such that each of them occupies a specific sector, element and aspiration.
Our prosperity is really a reflection of our thoughts formed by the perceptions of the outer world. Hence, harmonising our inner self and our immediate surroundings can open the channels to achieve greater prosperity and abundance in our lives. Creating a harmonious space and environment that exudes harmony is one of the key dynamics behind this age-old practice. It’s no surprise that we would most often be faced with bad energy due to our immediate surrounding and environment around our building. These may give rise to ill-fortune in the form of, relationship, wealth, legal entanglement or illness.
We are reflections of our personal environment because we absorb the energy which surrounds us. Our mind and body reacts and responds to the energies we are surrounded as this energy flows around us and through us.
As we continually interact with our personal space, it has a profound influence on the quality of our lives both on a conscious and subconscious level. It is a mirror reflection of who you are and your life circumstances. The internal environment that we live in plays an integral part in creating the external aspects of our lives.
To create a harmonious space with good energy flow, we can bring in simple décor and changes in our space which in turn empowers the Feng Shui and well-being.
