Since everything has an energy field and is, in a sense, “alive,” everything is connected, and everything is always changing, it makes sense that we are greatly influenced by the things and people around us.
The surroundings and the environment have a great impact on our well-being and frame of mind. Some places we visit make us feel restless and you urge to move away, yet some places have a feel of tranquillity and calmness making you remain there for a time more than you would have envisaged.
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.
Adapting the basic tenets of Vaastu and Feng Shui in terms of locating good piece of property, orienting the home to the best direction, proper placement of rooms, doors and windows, ideal colours, floor and wall décor and positioning water features will increase your ability to weather the “storms of life” with minimum impact.
Over a period of time, energy gets stagnant in our home or workplace. Hence it is a normal practice to carry out “Annual Corrections” to push away stagnation and usher in new growth and prospects by channelising the energy.
The process of recharging the place to activate the energy and push away stagnation is very much part of the oriental system which is often referred to as “spring clean” or in other words “Annual cleaning.” This not only ensures systematic clearing of clutter but through Feng Shui analysis, one can also ascertain the direction which could have bad energy sources for the year and accordingly take precautions to counter them.
The process of annual cleansing ensures that afflictions created unknowingly over a year can be countered and the Chinese zodiac afflictions which affect the individuals based on their personal date of birth is also mitigated and in turn brings in positive energy and a new feel to the environment through subtle changes and empower specific aspirations for the year. According to Feng Shui, our surroundings affect us and that we, in turn, are reflections of our surroundings. Since everything has an energy field and is, in a sense, “alive,” everything is connected, and everything is always changing, it makes sense that we are greatly influenced by the things and people around us.
